meh its easy to say "why not release more games or bigger games" when almost no one do , instead of a crowed period ....

Expect most people are hemorrhaging money after the holidays expenses on top of regular ones . And in some places people are preparing further ones for Carnival holidays or even valentine .

Most attempt in January fail or are lukewarm , except for niches that won't do better any other month anyway , truly big names and a selec...

What about you ? Just try to understand my point . DLC are there and not going away on bigger games , so certainly not this one

On one hand you have paid dlc no matter what , and no alternative to get those extra characters . As it has been for the last 7 years for street fighter and other fighting games .

On the other hand the SFV way . Still paid dlc , but at least a way to earn those for free .

I dunno how the hell from that you guys wanna...

There wont be new versions per se , but there would still logically be bundle re-releases for every 1-2 years of added content imo . especially when there are season passes

I'm not challenging that . But let's not pretend we don't know that short of the F2P alternative system , we would end up paying so much .

We already are with close to ALL fighting game released the previous gen and this one . Almost all of them had the capcom dlc pack , MK's season pass or the even more outrageous 5-7 or even 9 dollars per character cost

Short of going back to the unloc and codes era , which wont happen anytime soon , i say ...

If a so called casual can't muster the will and energy to unlocking them , over paying money ... chances are he wont care about missing out those 6 characters .... he's already barely using the available cast

Except Laura and Mika dont play the same way , and even less Birdie and Zangief ... and i don't just mean input by that

I agree that the reason advanced is flimsy and worse than "we didnt feel like adding him right now" , but you are exagerating

How are you punished ? You know well that in the current climate of games , 60 would buy you the initial roster as complete , while the rest would be sold instead a 15-25 pack or 5 dollars each characters .

The proposed way , you can either pay or xp for them to be unlocked , something still reachable for deemed casual , pending on their motivation

They arent the same ear in headphones . And even then , with a 600£ mobile , it would make some sense to include them

While i don't like and want those , i don't think you guys realise it's a specific product for a specific crowd that want that kind of in ear plug .

It's not as if they don't know that people can get insteads their own Pulse gold wireless or even elite for that kind of prices or cheaper .

So far it's around the price range of some high end ear piece from other brands like Bose ... so the worth depends on the quality

That's like writing an rticle named "why do people spoil themselves and unto others the Walking Dead and Game of Thrones" .

For some of those people , the answer is just that they wanna feel relevant and privy to some elite knowledge before everyone else

LOS1 is actually pretty good , but not as a Castlevania , but some 1/10 related long lost cousin that decided to be an hack and slash and God of War clone .

Also i'd swap lament with Curse of Darkness . It has the few good qualities of Lament , minus the repetitiveness and poor realisation , plus some neat gameplay ideas and actually a proper map and world design worthy of the franchise

Of course he wrote an article for some younger readers , but Castlevania never had mainstream appeal except with Super Castlevania 4 and SOTN . It's a serie we love , but it has only been at best a sleeper hit or cult serie .So i don't seen how it should necessary be a lie

Sega did kill it . WHile the ps2 was selling out as a dvd player and already promised the biggest titles ... the dreamcast was selling very well and would outpace the gamecube .

It's Sega that mismanaged it , and didnt capitalize really well on the best launch line up ever seen . Also let's not forget how they were failling already as an entity because of the collapse of arcade

Plus EA boycotted the console wich caused lots of damage

The console came out almost 6 minthlater in europe and even further in EU , and didnt launch with a lot worth playing .

it basically launched with crap like Evergrace , fantavision , Orphen etc . Sure it had Tekken tag at the us/eu launches and midnight club and timesplitters and ZOE , but it was definitively starving till MGS2 over a year later wich didnt open some flood of titles either yet .

It wasnt a very good first year , but most of us didnt care as w...

At this point , and considering their handling of shining force since the ps2 ... i'd settle for them to not do anything with Shining Force for a few years , over the Tony Taka crap .

Nothing against taka , he's actually an illustrator and chara designer i actually like a lot , but all the game his art he's involved with are awful and synonymous with the downfall of the serie

I doubt a majority 10 years old play this , or sales would grow instead of dwindling every new game . A big chunck is actually most likely old fans stuck with nostalgia and hopes it will get better . Which they are losing bit by bit every new mediocre game

That they or the article only mostly acknowledge the issues with recent titles is quite revealing .

And we've heard that every year after Sonic Adventure 2 . So basically for 15 years . During that time the only ones that didnt blow , but still wasnt great enough was Sonic rush on ds ... and two spiritual follow ups on wii by the same studio .

Show me one that is great , good even again , and then i'll trust you .

It sold more on ps3 and would just be losing the xbox sales as an exclusive title .

753d ago 0 agree0 disagreeView comment

yeah but it's a remaster , they didnt have anything solid in the new department between revelations 2 ... and well the upcoming SFV and Monster Hunter . So a drop was to be expected .
Aside of course from Dragon Dogma's online in japan , wich is a mmo and f2p , so won't be choosing results yet and anything but losses for the year
