I am playing Ultra Street Fighter IV. Now for some reason the HUD won't show so I have to fight without knowing my stamina, etc. And if I go to options to change the HUD position, the game seems to freeze when going into that option. I will try deleting the old Super files and reinstalling the game.

I played like two worlds of Puppeteer until I grew bored of it. I know it is supposed to be like a puppet play, but these characters just talk, and talk, and talk, with Picarina being the biggest offender. The gameplay never really clicked with me either.

So I will be mostly playing on my 3DS. I finished all stages of Bike Rider DX2 today minus the extra hard DLC. Plus I will be playing more Tappingo in anticipation of its sequel hitting next week.



sinalefa commented on Don't Worry, Crystal Dynamics Considered Your ...:


Agreed. A game like this must have a megabudget, so the only way to break even is to sell as many copies as they can in as many systems as possible. This timed deal puts the PS4 copies in jeopardy, and I don't think what MS paid will make up for that.

IMO they should have either made it multiplat at the same time or make it a One exclusive altogether. Preferably the former.



sinalefa commented on Soapbox: Here's Why I Will Be Playing Journey ...:

I played it on PS3 twice, with the second journey being much shorter than the first one. First playthrough when the Collection released, second one when I was waiting for Super Mario 3D World to download.

It is a very interesting game, and as the name implies, the journey matters more than reaching the destination. I played single player though, and I guess that is a different experience.

Since it depends on the experiences/feelings/thoughts, etc. it evokes, then some people will like it more than others.



sinalefa commented on Gamescom 2014: Half of Tearaway Unfolded's Con...:

I like this because I am closer to get a PS4 than a Vita, but I still would have liked a sequel instead of an enhanced port, and having this IP not being a Vita exclusive anymore is kind of another low blow for the poor portable.

@GameAce @XFsWorld

I got that one for PS3 and I agree with you both. When I get a collection, I seldom complete all games on it, but I did with Sly since I also skipped them in their prime, as I had a Dreamcast that gen. Loved all 3 games, but I haven't picked up 4th yet.

The only bad thing was that I played all three games straight, so I tend to confuse 2 with 3, as in what parts happened in what game, as they are a bit similar.



sinalefa commented on Poll: What Was Your Favourite Game of Gamescom...:

I had to go with Mortal Kombat X. If Tearaway was a sequel and not a retouched port, I would have chosen that. I also like how DriveClub looks.

Even if I love Rayman, I find it hard to get excited for Wild at this point.

And of the games missing from this list The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.



sinalefa commented on Gamescom 2014: We Don't Need to Buy Outright E...:

I like it this way. First party exclusives and third party games in all platforms. In the end, if you can't afford both systems the exclusives will be the defining factor but you still have access to most third party games.



sinalefa commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

I second @Tasuki. I just came from Pure Xbox commenting on WGIAPTW, great to see it here again and hoping NL picks it up again soon.

Anyway, nothing on Sony's front, unless I open some of my PlatinumGames backlog. I got Shovel Knight so I will be mostly playing that. Seeing Arkham Origins at $20 in the eShop made me regret my lack of HDD. I need to order one real soon.



sinalefa commented on Sony: We Want to Make PS4 Players Feel Special:

I will trade all that PR crap for something that actually forces me to buy a PS4. Destiny is not even a Sony (or even PS4) exclusive, so are they bragging because of a white PS4 that could have been bundled with any other game? Uncharted 4 is a long time coming.

In the other camp, I am dying to get the Bayonetta 1+2 combo and Smash Bros on my Wii U, and Kamiya's new IP is a One exclusive that admittedly is also a long time coming.



sinalefa commented on Game of the Month: July 2014 - The Last of Us ...:

I find the survey funny since the majority are remakes or rereleases. I am interested in Oddworld and I enjoyed Guacamelee a lot and gave it my vote since I never played the original.

I thought TLOU Remastered was the game of the month because you wrote a daily article about it for a whole month :p



sinalefa commented on Fancy a Jill Sandwich? The Original Resident E...:

I got my fix of this when I bought my Wii back in 2008 and I hunted down the GCN original. People who have only played RE4 onward are in for a rude awakening trying to get used to the controls.

I don't mind this not hitting Wii U as you can technically play the Wii version, but I hate Capcom for not giving U owners SFIII HD.



sinalefa commented on Furniture Review: Sitting Comfortably on a Sum...:

Even in the review of a "gamer bean bag" I get to see The Last of Us. It is a conspiracy, I tell you!!

Just kidding. I have never used a bean bag, I wonder how comfy they are. But I will make sure to get a decent priced one.



sinalefa commented on Review: The Last of Us Remastered (PlayStation 4):


That is what happened to me with Shadow of the Colossus when I played the ICO Collection. I went in with the expectation of one of the best games of all time and it never lived up to the hype for me. Conversely, I knew nothing about ICO and ended up liking it more.

OoT is not my favorite Zelda either, as influential as it was. I love W101 and that one got mixed reviews. Now you got me interested in Tomb Raider.



sinalefa commented on Review: The Last of Us Remastered (PlayStation 4):


If you check my profile you will see I have a PS3, and I own the Last of Us. The game is awesome, but the amount of coverage these days about this game feels like overkill, as if only this game matters for PS4 owners. I would rather hear about new PS4 games than remasters anyway.



sinalefa commented on Some People Still Can't Get Enough of Chris Re...:

I played the hell out of this one with my brother in local coop. We even went as far as to get an S in all but one chapter. Not as bad as everyone says it is (and I could say the same of 6), but it does not hold a candle to RE2 or 4, IMO. I have two copies of Revelations on 3DS that lie unplayed, and I feel it is a crime such a terrible game as Raccoon City sold so many copies.

Never tried the new DmC. I somehow feel that was Capcom giving the middle finger to Hideki Kamiya for the IP that he had created and then improved upon with Bayonetta.



sinalefa commented on Don't Worry, PS4's Uncharted 4: A Thief's End ...:

I am very happy to hear this. I thought ND would give in to the Dark Side of M rated, gritty shooters ;)

But still, I would love to see them evolve from the same old plot that they have been using for three games now (never tried the Vita one, so it could be four) as I grew bored of that.



sinalefa commented on Review: El Chavo Kart (PlayStation 3):


El Chavo translates to "The Kid". The main character is a homeless kid whose name not even his friends know. The game's characters are the series regulars, and the cartoon is based off possibly the best and most famous Mexican sitcom ever. 40 years old and still showing in reruns all over Latin America, US and even China.

With this said, seeing the name Don Ramón being changed to Mr. Raymond was cringeworthy. i still appreciate the review.
