"Games are good"


Thanks @Dee_91. What a pathetic "article". Really, it's a blog, at best. It's just some guy spouting off as much negativity about Sony as he can in 3 paragraphs while keeping it focused on apparently the one game upcoming that he seems to think has no positive gameplay aspects. I just don't understand all the hate for the gameplay in this title. It looks really awesome, to me. I *LIKE* cinematic games. Some of my favorite parts of Uncharted 2 (and the media in gen... #1.1.11

They just create some comic relief characters: two Robins (the birds) each named William, and they parrot each other and berate each other for comic effect while giving you useful information. William and William: the robin Williams. OK, ok, so it's super corny. But, then you remember that Nintendo put that weird Tingle guy in Zelda before and anything can happen! Also, at least it's somewhat subtle too because you have to actually notice it, it's not in your face. #1.3
Watching this person play the game is infuriating haha. They are awful at it! I just want to rip the controller from him and show him how it's done. #1.6
Sony didn't even announce Silent Hills. They announced a "now available" interactive teaser, which in turn announced the game, and nothing about exclusivity was ever said.

Hellblade was also not announced as exclusive. They did announce a bunch of games at the beginning of their conference, and at the end of that segment (during which they showed Hellblade) "The Tomorrow Children and Rime are full-exclusive, PlayStation Owned IPs, and all the rest of what... #6.6
Just curious, what do you mean by "a vocal minority?" If you mean "Playstation & PC fan bases"... Wouldn't that be a majority? Those audiences are bigger than the Xbox fanbase. #6.3.1
"Crystal has been investing in that game and Square has as well, in Tomb Raider as a franchise, and wanting to put it at the highest level, with the big triple-A franchises out there, but that's expensive."

Here's what I'm getting out of Spencer's long-winded explanation (don't take that wrong, I'm glad he gave so much about how this happened): Tomb Raider (reboot) was extremely expensive to produce to get it to "AAA caliber". The... #1.5
Finally got around to playing some Fez this weekend, after wanting to try it for years. It's... hmm... I dunno.

First, I found Fish (in the documentary Indie Game: The Movie) to be a very sympathetic guy with some demons and a lot of pressure surrounding what he's trying to do. So I tend to give him a bit of a free pass. The public spotlight isn't always for everyone, I know that. I don't think it's for him, that's for sure.

A funny comment considering the PS4 has more games available than the Xbox One.

Metacritic has rated 96 games for PS4, and only 60 for Xbox One. That is exactly 60% more games on PS4 (96-60 = 36 more games on PS4, 36/60 = 60%)

There are also 49 games rated as "favorable" on PS4, versus 24 on Xbox One, which is more than DOUBLE.

34 of the favorable titles on PS4 are rated 80+, versus 13 for Xbox One. That's 162% more. #5.3.1
@MUGEN81: Not to be a jerk about it, but I mean... why NOT get a PS4, when you know as well as I do that the majority of games any of us is going to play in a generation are going to be multiplatform, that's how it always is, and the PS4 has been shown to be objectively, quantifiably stronger than the Xbox One. Multiplatform games will always either run faster, or smoother, or at a higher resolution, or have more intricate lighting, motion blur and special effects, or better anti-aliasin... #14.6
Who would? It makes no sense to choose a console due to timed exclusivity, if you're already aware that it's timed.

OK, ok, maybe I would *for the right game*.

I'm one of those crazy Demon's / Dark Souls obsessed people (my favorite games of last gen, easily, and right up there with Symphony of the Night in my top 5 all-time games), and if Bloodborne was coming to Xbox One, even if it was a known timed exclusive, I'd probably buy an Xone... #1.17
@Sly-Lupin: Yes, but not everyone played it on PS3, or maybe even has a PS3 to play it on. I played my first Disgaea game on the PSP. The first one, on PSP... never played it on PS2. I just missed it on PS2 somehow and when I first got my PSP I was looking for something to play. In a way, I think the Disgaea games are better suited for hand-held play. I can do all that grinding and stuff while I sit on the train on my way to work (well, on my way to school back when I played the first on... #1.3.2
If just a couple hundred thousand out of the 3 million Dark Souls players decides "I wasn't planning to get a PS4 before, but now I gotta get one because I need to play Bloodborne" ... guess what, that means it was a system seller! It doesn't need to sell 10 million systems to be considered a system seller. If any significant amount of people buy the system primarily because of the game, people who were either on the fence or weren't planning to get the system at all b... #15.3
Don't care if this game is exclusive, timed exclusive, or available everywhere, I think it just looks like a cool game, and it looks like a return to the kinds of things they were doing with Heavenly Sword, a criminally under-rated game and one of the best games of the PS3's early life. Very excited for this game! #1.3
Like I said elsewhere, this is perfectly fine. Microsoft gets Tomb Raider exclusively at launch to compete against Uncharted 4, Square-Enix doesn't have to fend off Uncharted 4 when they try to sell this game to PS4 gamers, and eventually PS4 gamers will buy Tomb Raider when they're all finished with Uncharted 4. Works out for well for all parties involved. Everyone and their mother could guess that if Tomb Raider came out at the same time as Uncharted 4, on PS4, it wouldn't se... #1.4
@DualWielding: Really, six new exclusives + a bunch of timed exclusives, and some really awesome features announced for firmware 2.0, while PlayStation 4 still gets Uncharted 4 exclusively at the same time that Xbox gets Tomb Raider... you think Tomb Raider alone trumps all of that? Not to me. #1.1.26
Between this, The Tomorrow Children, and No Man's Sky, the PS4 is going to have a ridiculous number of these quirky and awesome exploration type experiences. #26
Cross buy! Awesome! I already own both of these for PS3, so that means I automatically get them for PS4! Just like with Flow and Flower. That's fantastic. Can't wait to play these gems again. #1.5
Looks absolutely stunning. It's like Wind Waker & Ico had a baby. Never been more excited for a so-called "indie" game. This game will be wonderful! #18
How was that a disaster? It was nothing but games, and they announced a few actual new games, and they were able to secure exclusivity on some games that I wasn't sure were going to be exclusive, like The Tomorrow Children and Rime, they had a bunch of real exclusives there, and a lot of the games they showed looked really unique and amazing. It was better than E3, that's for sure! #19.4
This could be good for everyone. I have no doubts it comes to PS4 shortly after Xbox One. It's probably a couple of months exclusivity (that's just a guess). As PS4 gamers get Uncharted 4, Xbox One gamers get Tomb Raider at the end of 2015. Square Enix doesn't throw Tomb Raider to the wolves against Uncharted 4 on PS4, where it would get completely ignored. And a couple of months later, now probably early 2016, by February I'm *GUESSING*, they bring it to PS4 and soak up... #1.14
