@Gamer83

Sorry, but if they can sell 20 million as it is, why do they need the awesome exclusives? After reading that survey where the top 2 buying reasons were Better Resolution and Blu Ray player capabilities, it is not like customers are looking for great games.

sinalefa commented on Scram Kitty DX Purrs to PS4, Vita This Week:

Again, I will take the time to recommend this gem to PS owners.

Don't mind "losing" the Wii U exclusive since more people deserve to play this. Besides, a little more life support for Vita won't hurt it ;)

sinalefa commented on Round Up: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 PS4 Rev...:

Revelations holds for me the title of being the only game I have purchased twice and never played it beyond the demo.

But if this has splitscreen campaign like RE 5 and 6 then I will buy the disc version when it hits. Don't care about the "bayness" of the story, just want to kill zombies with my bro in couch co op.

sinalefa commented on Opinion: How Reviews Can Colour a Game's Recep...:

I try to check as many reviews as possible. Normally there are patterns or flaws that appear in many reviews so that guides me if I can stand those shortcomings. If I like the game I will take the plunge even with low or mixed reviews, as long as they are not terrible.

Normally if I am still not sure I will wait for a sale.

sinalefa commented on Review: The Order: 1886 (PlayStation 4):

So my "Sony's Ryse" hunch seems to be right? I will be checking more reviews as they appear.

I actually hate that sequelitis mentality you hint at, Sammy. It is as if the developers don't give it their best, in hopes of getting a sequel to improve upon things that may have been corrected from the first title.

sinalefa commented on People Are Looking for a Reason to Hate PS4's ...:

"I want them to make up their own minds about the game period."

But if people "hate" the game, he does not seem to like it. And if this does not sell, he will blame it on that "hatred".

I also agree with @Faruko. No reviews, no demo, reportedly tons of different gameplay but most trailers seem to show no gameplay. It should be the game, not PR who should be doing the talking.

sinalefa commented on Talking Point: How Important Is Game Length?:

Usually I wait for reviews. If the game is short and not engaging, I wait till it hits $20 or less.

The thing with some of these AAA games is that they are short, but they force you to pay $60 at launch because those OMG graphics are very expensive to make.

For me a game like the Wonderful 101 had a decent campaign and lots of replay value, so I never felt short changed. I hate padding and grinding, but I also hate beating a game in 5 hours and not being able to do anything else, whether because only the story matters or because the gameplay is not engaging enough.

sinalefa commented on Talking Point: Do Review Scores Have a Future?:

We need scores because "too much water" looks too lonely on its own :p

In all seriousness, I like both but it is common to hear "that reads like an 8, why did they put a 7?" so the issue is not just the number but the number next to the text, in the same review.

And even without numbers, reviews can be shallow, incomplete, biased and seemingly unjust with some games, so not sure how removing a number fixes anything.
