But that isn't the point of the story as it is just a plot point. The main theme is the relationship between Ellie and Joel and how it builds over time. They have done their journey. Ellie may be a possible cure (it was never confirmed that a cure could be made with Ellie) but that isn't the main focus of the last of us. That was just a contexts to a story driven game

Hence why the only way they can go is completely new characters in a different setting. Otherwise the...

The should have new characters within the same universe. I think the Ellie and Joel story is done. I would like to see a new focus for the story with new characters

And take on Battlefront after the new star wars movies come out? That would be suicide. I honestly think they should go for an early or even late January release. The last Tomb Raider was good but there are way too many bigger and more popular games coming out this fall.

It might be just me but who are these people. It is fantastic these games got a showing and it is great to see them coming but come on. Jeering, speaking during the trailer. Just watch the dam thing.

Which, for me, is a shame. I like how Media Molecule kind of go wild with creativity but I also liked how LBP and Tearaway was so accessible. Being Morpheus only will be good creatively but it limits the user base.

It does but the Kinect needs a selling point. Making Cortana work through mics would remove that. Also mic quality may vary and I think Microsoft would rather have a good PR with Cortana than give more people the ability to use it

To be fair PS Now has not and has never been about BC compatibility. It is more about making gaming accessible to as many people as possible. The same way cable providers pushed consumers away so has high game/ console prices. PS Now hasn't got it totally right yet but a Netflix style service on any device for gaming is where gaming is somewhat heading.

Also they are going to struggle with the games. Apart from Halo the biggest games are third party and they have been selling better/selling more console units for Sony not Microsoft. The third party games a huge (much bigger than last falls) and I don't see many exclusive games making any real headway this year

I think you overestimate it. People have been banging on about how these consoles are selling a ludicrous rates (breaking records....). The reasons is because people have already made the jump. The long life cycle of the last generation made people jump earlier this time. BC should have been done at launch.

No? I think BC is great but I don't think it is going to convince consumers to buy these consoles now as BC is really important in the early stages not in the middle to later stages of a cycle. Especially for the case of the PS3 where emulation would be difficult on a PS4 I do not think the need truly out ways the difficulty and the outcome of such a move. However, they should definitely do it with the PS5

I agree but the steaming to Windows 10 isn't important because of the PC capability (quite frankly streaming the other way makes more sense since it puts Windows in the living room). It is actually the ability to stream to windows phones and tablet. I do think Microsoft need to open this up though as the Windows mobile platform still doesn't bring in the numbers.

I am kind of hoping Drake dies. I just do not see Drake hanging up his treasure hunting ways especially with what we know of the character from previous games. The guy is an arsehole to his friends and will go to extreme lengths to find some mystical treasure even if it puts his friends in danger. That is just who he is and I won't believe a sudden shift in his personality. I don't think they will kill him but they should.

I think ND is done with Uncharted and a new s...

Depends how it is handle. For me Preview/Early access programs are as useful/good as F2P games. F2P games may be the bane of many gamers but if done right they can offer a full, long lasting, experience. But most F2P games are mismanaged which has led to this hatred for them. Same with Early Access. Early Access as a service is awful since it is full of exploits, rubbish all over the place, games dying out of the blue. But there is some good in there. Microsoft needs to be strict and manage i...

I don't think Microsoft have won the holiday at all. Out of all the games coming in the fall Halo will be the only one to make an huge impact for the Xbox One. There are far to many huge third party games coming at the end of this year which, like the ones before them, helped Microsoft's competitior far more than Microsoft. Microsoft are overloading the wrong part of the year.

They should move Tomb Raider and Fable legends to the early part of next year. They are not...

Honestly, with the announcement of talk about the NX next year are people really surprised by Nintendo's E3 showing? Since announcing the NX they are clearly preparing for that as they need to. They need to have a big launch with the NX. What E3 did show us is that the NX will be the replacem...

You are right. They are essentially preparing to launch a new system.

I probably wouldn't since it is difficult. If you are going to do it the way I would do is do just a list on most viewed (not popularity) and then the like/dislike ratio, or percentage, next to it (for a bit of supplementary information that you can write about).

1011d ago 1 agree0 disagreeView comment

Shouldn't number of views come into play or amount of likes. Percentages are fine and all but some of the top choices barely have a 1,000 votes total

This third pillar idea isn't new. Remember the DS line was seen, openly by Nintendo, as that third pillar along side the Gameboy and their home console line. Well, we know how that turned out for the gameboy line. Same can be said here

I actually think it won't be that much. I think Microsoft just never renewed the partnership (they have gone in a different direction this generation under Phil) and Sony isn't known to blow a lot on timed exclusive content (the content they usually get isn't mind blowing as it is often a mission or a costume pack). It will be enough to offset the potential lose being timed exclusive for a short time but with how big COD is I doubt that difference is big.
