Franchise fatgue is a myth. Development time only affects superficial aspects of a game such as graphical quality or stability, bad ideas are always bad because of the people behind them. Whether 2 years, or 20,bad ideas don't expire. It's the people with the bad ideas that need to go, not increasing dev time. #2.1.2
Sorry Fox, but yes.

A game taking a year off will not make it better when it comes back if the same people with the same bad ideas are running its development. Bad ideas don't have expiration dates.

But those people who don't like the games have the right to skip them, but don't have the right to have those games removed from the people who still enjoy the franchise. My guess is you don't play them anyway, so why do you care if others do? #1.2
A dev can't know what consumers want until they release something. And if consumers don't want something, they're free to not buy it, changing it is reactionary to whining, either taken to prevent it based on market conditions or past experience, or done after mob tactics force the change. Devs have an original vision for their game, changes that they make on their own are because they don't think something fits any more. Forced changes are always obvious and always censorship. #1.1.11
Ah kalebninja, N4G's resident morality officer, doing their best to hide the fact that sexuality is not a bad thing, people act and dress immodestly, and what they want is wholly irrelevant to anyone but themselves.

I'm glad you posted this because it says a lot.

Firstly it shows that you're a prude because you seemingly take great joy in censorship of the female form as it's "w... #1.1.8
He's still making a very poor example anyway. For starters, Elon Musk didn't go on Kickstarter and make claims of a price that would then eventually double as soon as the retail version was ready.

Second, the two products could not be any further apart in similarity. A car is partially a necessity (I say partially because it depends on where you live really), while VR is not so making an electric car mainstream has A LOT less work to do than VR would comparatively. <... #5.1.1
Pff, Polygon has never heard of LobosJr. Go watch his challenge runs where he plays with restrictions like no dodging, no healing, fists only. #9
Well, the demo had weapon slots with 4 different weapons assigned to 4 buttons. There was a sword that drained HP, a spear that allowed for the jump skill, a great sword that had a sweeping attack, and the standard sword you see Noctis using. Each special attribute cost a certain number of what I'll skill points to use and if you didn't have those points then all you could do was a basic attack. So it has some customization only locked behind a point based mechanic. Kinda like how mag... #1.2.5
I think it should be kind of like the Souls series but with some changes. What I mean is that weapons themselves shouldn't have damage values, instead your own strength stat should determine damage values and thus for different weapons you'd need different stats. So like, a Greatsword would require more strength to wield but would do more damage, and should you then decide to equip a standard longsword, because you increased your strength then it would mean you swing harder and/or fas... #1.2.3
Gamespot won't load for me on my P.o.S brand phone. Someome please tell me that he isn't comparing Oculus either to the genius of Nikola Tesla (in which case that is the toppest of keks), or the company Tesla which actually creates affordable, genius, innovative products.

I see Facebook's money tends to dumb down the IQ and ramp up motormouthing and word vomit. #5
@Hazardman: You might not want to make assumptions unless you enjoy looking like the first 3 letters of that word. I have never played an Uncharted game to completion because, quite frankly, I didn't enjoy the first one from the start.

And stop trying to deflect criticism of this game off onto Uncharted when Uncharted waa inspired by Tomb Raider to begin with.

Finally, gameplay is not the only way in which a game can look "samey." If it were, a... #3.3
This game still just looks like TR2013 to me, which I thought was only "alright." I also am not really a fan of Lara's general personality. She doesn't seem like the archetypal (sic?) archaeolgist that we've grown accustomed to. I mean, she's no Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones, but she's also no Tia Carrere in that tv show she was in where she was a Polynesian Indiana Jones. Honestly she feels like a whiny Princess type thrust into a world she shouldn't be abl... #3
$800 in Canada is B.S. #3.2.2
What was your threat supposed to accomplish? Do you really think you threatening "trouble" against Ubisoft will even be heard, let alone acknowledged and acted upon. Just exactly what are you going to do if Ubisoft decide to make every character purple with pink polkadots hmmm? #14.3.3
@Transient: Look up the Halo 3 swag bags, specifically what Dean Takahashi had to say about it. Or there was that guy who was fired from Eurogamer for exposing how Sony tried getting positive press for the PS3 by getting journos to tweet how much they wanted one for a chance to win one, or the entirety of the indie games scene. There's plenty of proof for you online, just look. #8.1.2
Remember when Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction had points taken off for having too much weapon variety? XD

**EDIT** I only ever trusted Reviews on the Run (Judgement Day in the U.S.) With Victor Lucas and Tommy Tallarico. You won't find more unbiased reviewing anywhere else. Tommy doesn't do reviews anymore, but he was the best. He hated JRPGs but I'll never forget how he, despite hating the genre itself, gave Final Fantasy X a perfect score. He mad... #6.1
"Or else there's going to be a problem."

I'm sure Ubisoft is shaking in their boots. Oh no, the professionally offended are, you guessed it, offended again. What ever shall we do? #14.3
Why does the PS4 "OBVIOUSLY need" these features? Will it stop working without them? Will games stop working or become somehow broken without them? Will the PS4 immediately stop selling without them? No? So then really what you're saying is YOU "need" DLNA, or Folders, or External HDD support then? Why do you "need" them? Can you not play your games without them? No? Oh ok. So the real statement here is it would be nice if the PS4 had these filler features be... #3.4.8
If you don't want it, don't play it. Others are still fans of the series and aren't fatigued so please speak only for yourself. #9.1
@PinkCrocodile: You have to remember that AC lore holds that the Assassins and the Templars existed in various names and forms well before they were finally referred to as Assassins or Templars. So that the Templars are actually a Christian Order is irrelevant to the lore of the series as they easily could just call them something else prior to calling them Templars. Also, I disagree that Japan is the last thing the series needs. Fans have been clamoring for Japan since AC2. And who cares how... #1.1.5
I think it's hilarious that you're all using the concept of "listening to your customers" as an argument, making the implication that Sony hasn't done so already, isn't continuing to do so, and won't in thr future. Sales matter in this regard because if Sony were not listening to their customers, the PS4 would be failing, and that's a fact. At the end of the day, gamers care about games first and last. Everything else is "would be nice" filler. Don&... #3.3.5
