EA doesn't really mean that. They just think that it doesn't matter and that people will buy the game anyway. They are thinking "there are not enough people who feel like this to affect the sales of the game in any real way." If they knew that a really significant percentage of their fans would not buy the game over this the response would be entirely different. It is a poor response. The best thing would have been to say nothing. There is no point in...
@optimus - It's not just about being able to sell back you digital rights. In order to truly own a game, you have to be able to give it away for free if you want. You have to be able to give it away to a perfect stranger and you have to be able to sell it for your own negotiated price. If that was possible for digital copies it would break the single game model and thus it will never happen.
Thank God! The game looks good, really good, but every other moment I was thinking, "can I take off that suit?" (Trailer starts off) I think...."What's up with that suit?" (Spidey beats up some hoodlums)....Can I take off that suit? (Spidey call the Kingpin "Willie").....Can I take off that suit? (Spidey chasing a helicopter).....I wonder if I can explore all that city down there? That would be cool...maybe I co...
This can only be a question for someone who has not played both games. KOTOR 1 was an unmitigated masterpiece, one the best games ever made on any platform. KOTOR 2 was a cheap money grab with an incomplete mess of a story, but good gameplay and combat inherited from KOTOR 1. No one who played both games will think KOTOR 2 is better or even as good as KOTOR 1. Especially not someone who played them both when they were new.
Dear Odin, One of your dumbass children is going to attempt to kill that boy. YOU MUST PREVENT THIS AT ALL COST. It'll probably be Loki; he is always trying to start trouble for the fun of it, but he doesn't want the kind of trouble that Kratos brings. He thinks he does; but believe me, he doesn't and neither do you or your kingdom for that matter. This message is a vital warning. Don't let anybody do any dumb sh## where Kratos is involved. Let Kratos st...
Yeah...um...err...yeah, Jedi don't wear armor. Sith Lord wear armor, sometimes, and bounty hunters were armor all the time, but Jedi don't wear armor. You can never say never, but almost never. They rely on the force, wisdom, and their lightsabers to protect them.
We were promised airships from the start. This news is breaking my heart. After wanting this game for a full 9 years, at the end they change it into something different from what I have wanted all this time.
@Antotis - I was with you until you said "mostly white". Feminism effects all races, and excessive feminism creates the same distort view of family in everybody. @Ravinash - Feminism arguments are more than just what people say on forums. They have gotten into government policy and into academics and even religious circles. Having gotten firmly into circles where policy get decided, it shapes policy in ways that has real consequences in peoples lives.
VoG all the way. It's not even close.
Which will hopefully go back to Ninja Gaiden Sigma gameplay mechanics. ...But probably won't because Team Ninja was dumb enough to change away from Ninja Gaiden mechanics in the first place.
It was so boring that you played it until your thumb hurt.
There are about 3-4 million gamers who buy the type of high-end hack n' slash game that Bayonetta is, and they all have Playstations. Bayonetta 1 didn't sell well because it was broken to the point of being literally unplayable on the PS3, where the hack n' slash gamers are. Bayonetta 2 is not selling well because it is on the Nintendo, the system that people buy for the kiddie games. This was always a train wreck happening in slow motion.
@Loadedklip That's a false equivalency. The rate of PS3 breakdown was nothing close to as high as the rate of breakdown of the Xbox 360. To mention them both in the same comment without pointing out the disparity is misleading at best. Reports of early failure from a PS3 were few and far in between. At the same time it was very difficult to find someone who didn't have a 360 to fail on them or on a close friend before said 360 was a year old, Moreo...
I don't follow Foxtront enough to know whether he is personally exercising a double standard in regards to Halo 5. However, I do know that what he is saying about changing the main character of a game is consistent with normal fan reaction to changes. Fans never like it when their main protagonist is changed. Frankly, I think it is an unnecessary risk on the part of 343. People's attitude will be more negative towards the game simply because the...
You know they are going to bring her back, right? They have to. That's probably what the next game will be about, the chief looking for Cortana. The question is whether the chief will get another A.I. assistant in the meantime. My money says "no, he will refuse to get another A.I. assistant until he finds Cortana.
The key phrase is "with a brain". Most people simply are not smart. Most of the ones who are smart don't put much thought into which video game console is the most powerful. Most people go on hearsay, and most people will buy the cheaper one if the hearsay says that the two are similar.
How in the hell do they have The Boss from Metal Gear Solid 3 and not Eva from Metal Gear Solid 3. Eva (when she was young in MGS3) is the hottest chick in the Metal Gear series. P.S. And I am assuming that they are just not considering any females from fighting games. I can understand that, fighting game chicks are pretty much all eye candy, with the exceptions for one or two games.
@Neonridr That's just face-saving. It's like when people get dumped they always say that the other person wasn't all that. You gotta see through that.
