300,000 already? That's fantastic for a beat em up that's a new IP and an exclusive to boot! Great reviews too. I'm really considering getting this next week. Came out of nowhere, but now I'd like to squeeze it in somewhere. #11

Both, depending on execution. More often than not though, linear like MGS or a more open-linear style like the Mass Effects seem to be faves for pure storytelling. More focused, deliberate pacing, you don't miss as much. Open world stories there's always a risk you'll skip a great side story for a lame one, or get so distracted you'll forget what you were doing in the first place. #9

Forza still uses old gen tricks like pre-baked lighting btw. The inFamous gameplay walkthrough from E3 looked pretty darn impressive as well from what I recall. We're also talking dynamic open world vs linear driving. #38.3

The fact you had to combine the output of TWO AAA heavyweights (Rockstar and Bethesda) just to break even with Naughty Dog, while also conveniently omitting their lower averaged games like Fallout New Vegas' 83% and MaxPayne3's 86%...speaks to the contrary. #1.1.14

NPD is US only, justastranger10. Sony stated it did 3.5 million worldwide and that was a week or two ago http://www.destructoid.com/... . Pretty impressive for a new IP at the end of a gen that's not a military sci-fi FPS with millions of Doritos/Mountain Dew in mark... #1.1.13

I think getting that 1000/1000gs or Platinum can often be a good indication to your friends that you've nailed a game. They often have difficulty cheevos/trophies and require you to do things off the beaten path, so odds are you've seen/heard/found it all by the time you're done. Including some online. #13

[QUOTE] The Walking Dead understands the concept of tension and release, bringing the player along on the rollercoaster ride and letting them appreciate the game. The Last of Us simply does not provide that kind of experience. The Last of Us is a tense experience from beginning to end. [/QUOTE]

I disagree. TLOU was a much longer game and by default had many more moments of release.

The release I felt after the harrowing sewer escape in TLOU, when I could fin... #18

I disagree. David saved and/or prolonged Ellie's life (and Joel's by not letting his friend screw her over on the antibiotics) several times. He could've overpowered her from the get-go but never did. David was never one-dimensional.

1)He was shaken at the dead pals he found in the shack b4 the Bloater fight.
2)He fought and platformed back-to-back with Ellie through the shack.
3)He told Ellie that she and Joel were probably the o... #8.1

I platinumed Sorcery full price (albeit with a free Move controller thrown in from ToysRUs). For 5 bucks, it's a steal! #3

Greenberg was worse than Mattrick.

Until he was muzzled about 2 odd years ago, he was constantly in the headlines for fanboy flamebait trolling. From sales to bluray and even browsers, the amount of crow he's probably eaten is staggering. His region cherrypicking spin of Halo3 sales vs PS3 exclusives, particularily now in a post-GT5 world, makes him look like a dope in hindsight.

Thunderbolt has generally trashed PS3 exclusives in their reviews, stop trying to move the goal posts the one time they're actually happy.

'Unnecessarities' isn't even a word btw. The noun forms for the adjective 'unnecessary' are 'unnecessaries' and 'unnecessariness'. Some of you guys are trying waaaaaaaaaaay too hard here. #1.1.14

Says who? My XBL Gold expires first week of August. If you wanna pay for my renewal go ahead, because I won't be. #2.1.4

PSN CAN do cross game chat, the Vita already does it and its confirmed for PS4 as well. The PS3 is old hardware. That's the issue. Just like the 360's DVD9 is dated and requires disc swapping compared to Bluray. #1.5.1

@Unholy One
My 360 downloads a GB the same speed as PSN. No faster. Blame your ISP.

Yet the 256 player shooters like MAG, 8 player co-ops like R2, and MMOAGs like DCUO, Dust514 and soon Planetside2 remain PSN feats. What good are 300,000 servers if there's nothing new to play on them and no UGC scene to speak of? Horsepower doesn't help a car on bricks. #1.2.7

Just platinumed it. Wotta ride! I'm not even sick of it yet, heh #4

Finished it now and I gotta say, I *was* actually disappointed overall. The lustre has definitely worn off. Hard to overlook the horrible lip synching and juttery controls as much a year later.

I was making one of the lady charachters bounce around the screen like a physics-less puppet as she ran into the forest b4 the cornfield section. Charachters mouths kept moving long after the voice-over stopped. Even the loads seem longer post-patches.

The problem is playing a game and having a 'controller disconnected' message pop up constantly cuz the rumble in the controller shook the battery off the connector. I've had to disable rumble on both my 360 controllers at times on ME3.

I also refuse to spend more money on extra peripherals like a charge pack and stockpiles of Duracells that clutter when a simple free USB cord should suffice. I plug in my phone, laptop, camera, dualshocks, blutooth... #1.4.3

Why did that Eurogamer dude take a dig at TLOU? Two completely different kinds of games. In Walking Dead, talking pretty much *is* the gameplay, with the whole Mass Effect conversation wheel driving the narrative. The combat was entirely QTE based. He omits that comparison.

In any case, already downloaded 400 days, gonna start it tomorrow. #2
