It's probable that Capcom only had the resources to get the game ported to 3DS and Wii U. I believe there are also new areas in the game. It's easier to tack on new options when the game has already been on a platform previously. The Uncharted series added new options as it went. This is the first time that MH is appearing on 3DS and Wii U, so I personally wouldn't expect every bell and whistle to be included. The next one, though, sure.
To be fair, these options take a lot of time to implement. Uncharted didn't get two-player split screen until the 3rd in the series.
Okay, well, I guess I should be clearer in my article, but I'm excited for Dead Space 3. I'll be playing it day-one. I'm not excessively worried about the co-op like some fans are. I have a mind-set that I'm going to have a lot of fun playing it.
If you take the time to read the article, you'll find that we're optimistic about Dead Space 3. We're just bringing up the issue, because the co-op is what's new with the series, and it's what fans are worried about. It'd be great if you would read before commenting though.
I admit that the tie-in to Gamestop is my speculation (trying to contact GS now), but the Xbox 720 being anti-used games is from Kotaku's source: http://nerdreactor.com/2012...
If this rumor from an inside source is so wild, what about the fact that we pay $10-15 for features not included in used games? Microsoft and other companies have an ince...
Sorry, not completely, but they've stated that they have plans to remove all stores from Europe. We're trying to find out about America now.
It's not just the UK though. Gamestop is planning on going out of brick and mortar completely. Over here in the States, they do really well.
I think that one thing I should have better addressed in my article is that in my opinion it's okay to get hyped over things that you're informed about. There are companies and game series that deserve hype, because they've built up a good reputation through years of high quality output.
I myself am hyped about Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, because I've played Bethesda's past games, and I've seen how they've gotten better at making their open worlds....
I would be perfectly happy with all 3 consoles for at least another 3 years. People have to realize that costs are increasing, and developers and console manufacturers have to make their money back before moving onto the next generation.
Graphics are great, but they aren't everything. Learn to like games more for their gameplay/story.
Why even put a price? Why can't GameStop just ask for $20-50 dollars down on the machine? There's no good reason to put a temporary $1000 price tag.
You know, Chaos Striker, it's funny that I recently did an article about L.A. Noire after this goty article, and I didn't even think to add it. Thank you for reminding me. I'll put L.A. Noire in there sometime tonight. L.A. Noire looks like it could help to evolve video games by allowing gamers to understand how characters in games are feeling/reacting to things.
I rented the game via Gamefly and couldn't finish it, because I hated what they did to Metroid:
simplified controls. Samus auto-aims at things in front of her = no skill. You can aim at the screen and go into first-person, but your aim will always start at "neutral", in straight in front of Samus. So, if you have enemies on the roof, and you want to repeatedly aim at them and dodge, you will have to aim up each GD time. Fix? Use the GD nunchuck + Wii-mote combo...
Microsoft just upped the price of their service while PSN, Wii, and PC gaming remain free, so yes, it's a relevant article.
I would say that in the days of the original Xbox Halo was much more important to Xbox Live. Halo was the game people wanted to play online, and not Socom, so people were willing to pay up.
My argument is not solely focused on Xbox Live, but it is about companies doing things because they think they can. There have been a lot of game...
Most of my information is correct. The only thing you found incorrect is that I included some slightly older Xbox Live services with new ones. I changed the wording of the sentence. You seem like you don't want free online gaming or your games to be updated. Do you accept whatever Microsoft tells you?
I own an Xbox 360. My gamertag is RabbitBBQ. I own the following 360 games:
Gears of War 2, Halo ODST (half price), Mass Effect 1 and 2, Fallout 3, Condemned 2, COD...
One of my theories in the article for Xbox Live beating out PSN is that PS3 came out at too high a price ($500-$600), so of course Xbox Live took off and PSN didn't. Xbox Live owners wanted to play online, and just accepted that it costs money. If PS3 and 360 came out at the same time and the same price, I don't think consumers would have been willing to pay for Xbox Live.
There was once a time when Halo was the big dog. Yes, CoD is bigger now.
Xbox Live came out with the original Xbox, yes, and at that time, online gaming was relatively new. Answer me this, why is it that you can play online games for free on Wii, PC, and PS3, but not on Xbox 360 at all?
As for mentioning the different services like ESPN etc. my point was that MS is adding services (that users like myself don't want), and upping the price on Live.
You read my article that quickly? Gee your fast! The article is more than just about Portal 2. Microsoft won't allow updates unless they're to fix a game (aka patches), but Sony will. Try reading and giving the story a chance, as right now you sound like a fanboy with a knee-jerk reaction.
Sometimes companies make you pay for things just because they think they can get away with doing so.
It sounds like they're going to tone some of their current scares down a bit. I remember getting "jumped" in the original game, but I love everything about the original, including those parts (the turret was the one terrible thing in the game).
