It's back up now on ps3. I'm logged on as are others on my friend list. PS4 and the PS app however, still time out...
lol, I see what you did there! Ahh Kos, or some say Kosm
Congrats to BB though, got my vote. A round of brain fluid for everyone! plip plop...
The Talos Principle has the same 88% avg Ori does. Is that not a game? Throw on Rocket League at 85% and the indy demographic is covered.
2 infamous games? First Light was technically an expansion to Second Son. Stand alone DLC like TLOU:Left Behind or inFamous:Festival of blood. If you're counting expansions, then count Bloodborne's Old Hunters at 87% and FFXIV Heavensward at 86%.
Tearaway Unfolded is rated the same 81% as Sunset...
Kinda like Gears of War Ultimate, Halo MCC, and last gen re-releases like State of Decay
Considering the best new game of THIS holiday season (aka late Nov-Dec) was Yakuza 5, a *last gen* localised PS3 exclusive, I think the article might be missing a bigger picture here. My PS3 won the holidays.
Ni No Kuni is in its prime. Final Fantasy is past its prime. I'll read about FF15, but I'm buying NNK2.
I beg to differ. There's just as many Witcher fanboys that can't seem to stop erecting shrines and burning effigies to Wild Hunt, calling all other games mediocre in comparison. That's generally the clique I find the most pretentious and abrasive. There are several here already.
"Us people" also don't go on about difficulty or hardcore anything. Too busy helping eachother in the community with PVE co-op and PVP.
I only started (and p...
I wish new releases were still $60 here in Canada. $74-79 is what they go for at launch nowadays. Plus tax! I wait til sales now, or if I have some reward zone bucks to burn. Pretty much out of stuff I'm willing to trade, so I'm playing hardball. Yakuza5 for $39 it is.
There *are* free themes you know. I've downloaded well over a dozen free ones on ps4 and they're almost all dynamic.
I have 3 free Bloodborne ones already (one code from ps blog, one for the platinum, one for DLC preorder) so if they wanna charge for this one, it's no skin off of my teeth.
Nice that Ni No Kuni got a shoutout. Ghibli done right.
Bit surprised Shadow of the Collosus/Ico weren't on. They had a sort of dreamy minimalist art design all their own. Especially SOTC with all the fur/stone bosses and that specific shade of green grass. The studio's signature style is all over the Last Guardian too. Environments have that architecture that you just recognize immediately.
Could be a long list if they kept going. Coulda talked about...
Considering what a struggle it was to get a western localisation in the first place and that it's a great game with all extra content included, I don't fault Sony for $39 at all. Remember Y3 and Y4 launched in the west with full $59.99 price tags a year after their Japanese debuts.
Yakuza 5 is a *first run* game in the west. GTAV has already been here 3 years and has already been remastered once. So have Halo MCC, Gears Ultimate, Tomb Raider Definitive, SleepingDogs D...
Bloodborne is my personal GOTY as well. Even the DLC was top notch. Game kept getting better.
If you're looking for an Oscar level of awards that's the AIAS (academy of interactive arts and sciences) D.I.C.E awards which has been doing this far longer than the spike tv one or its rebranding. Like almost 20 years worth.
The AIAS is also comprised of industry professionals much like the Oscars, and like the Oscars they do their show pre-spring because 2015 isn't over yet. So there ya go.
Just cleared up 40+ GB of HDD space to download this! Phew. Can't believe its taken 3 years for a western release when it sounds like an exclusive to be proud of.
It's in the NA PS store, I presume in Europe too since Edge and Eurogamer just reviewed it. This one's digital only. I'd rather have a disc and case to compliment my Yakuza 3 & 4, but what can you do. Sounds like a great game regardless
Drake is an orphan, like Bond. It's not unreasonable to assume that at some point Drake squatted with a family, or two, or ten. Bond did with the Oberhausers, becoming the adopted brother to Franz (see Spectre). My money's on that being the case here. Brothers by proxy, not by blood.
An independent like Marlowe couldn't possibly have everything on a kid living off the grid anyways. Records of every girl some runaway ever kissed or every stranger who ever offered...
Forza can steal a torch with a 79% avg mainline game and never once outselling its dad? Interesting.
Gun, Red Dead Revolver, Manhunt, the Suffering. Heck, get creative and do the Punisher to coincide with his rebirth in season 2 of Daredevil.
1000 times yes please! New psychological horror IP in the same vein. The foundation is there, the talent is there, the publisher is there, the rabid fanbase is there. Don't get many chances to catch lightning in a bottle, twice.
Wow. That handshake right there is basically a license to print money.
Highest rated game of the year, arguably most popular demo ever in PT, unfairly and unceremoniously let go and bullied by his former employer. The stars are aligned for some artistic payback.
