Zero interest, to be honest. I literally haven't played GTA V since I finished it on current gen consoles months ago. I've just had my fill, that's all.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that. #4.1.1

I wouldn't say it's too late, because I'd rather them be late than never come at all, especially considering the big hullabaloo surrounding them. However, I've already moved on from Grand Theft Auto Online, so I will not be participating. Heists took far too long to be released and I am no longer interested.

I do sincerely hope they're great enough to appease the people who were waiting as long as the rest of us and will actually participate. #4

It sounds to me that this blog is as dated as Nintendo's statistics on video gaming. You're comparing the Wii U, an eighth generation console, to the PlayStation 3 (seventh generation) and the GameCube (sixth generation) but not out for effect, but for the foundation of your argument. Nintendo's Wii U is considered a current generation (eighth) console, on the same platform as the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Comparing the Wii U to those two should be the foundation of your arg... #1

Very well said, Blacklash93. Uncharted's superior - for lack of a better word - combat, storytelling and even voice acting were what stood out the most for me when comparing and contrasting the two franchises. I noticed a small handful of similarities between Uncharted and Tomb Raider (and vice versa with the TR reboot) but there was never anything that stood out as a blatant ripoff, like some claim.

I think the only thing Uncharted really "took" from Tomb Raide... #21.1.1

I wouldn't say unrealistic, but certainly far-fetched. The same could be said about women. I mean, Lara Croft is a prime example of a far-fetched image of a woman, especially pre-reboot. #8.1

Attraction is more than for physical or sexual reasons. I suggest you Google the definition of the word. I was attracted to James Bond as a child because of the action, gadgets, personality and overall bad-ass-ery, for example. As is the way one may be attracted to a specific genre of music or film, for another example.

In lieu of this, my statement of, "Since the beginning of video game history, we as gamers have always found ourselves attracted to certain video game ch... #6.1

I wonder if any of them realize how truly idiotic they sound, threatening to boycott a store if the store does not break the release date.

"In order to force the leaders..." dear God in heaven give me strength. Do you really think GameStop gives a rat's arse about "pressure" due to boycotting their store just to get a game early?

I think I've lost a minimum of ten brain cells reading this article. #12

In my opinion, it doesn't matter whether a game has multiplayer or not* or how good the experience is. If you're going to charge $60 for the game, there needs to be more meat on the bone and not just embellishments around the plate, if you'll excuse the food related analogy. There are plenty of games out there that were brilliant, but simply too short and that is not okay for the price we're asked to pay.

I don't care if the graphics are the best we'll... #1

I'm really tired of people complaining that Uncharted "stole" things from Tomb Raider and vice versa. Uncharted and Tomb Raider are both great franchises and they aren't the first two to borrow ideas and concepts from one another. The even bigger point is that there is NOTHING wrong with borrowing concepts from other games; Saints Row and Grand Theft Auto, Battlefield and Call of Duty, Gran Turismo and Forza, Mirror's Edge and Dying Light, to name a few. #21

I believe it. It seems like every AAA game that comes out always ends up having a "GOTY Edition" with all of the subsequent DLC for the cost of the base game. That, and Square Enix's newfound love for releasing 'Definitive Editions.' #5.1.1

Lack of demos is the primary reason why I typically buy preowned games. No offense to any developers, but I'm not shelling out $60 blind anymore. I'll buy it used and if I like it enough, I'll either keep it or pick up a new copy to support the developers and/or grab any worthwhile promotional DLC for buying it new. #5

@moldybread, lol did you even read my response? I wasn't asking for advice, first of all, I was bringing attention to the situation and hopefully to advise others to avoid the season pass unless they feel like they truly can't live without Dying Light DLC, no matter how useless or pointless.

Secondly, I'm well aware that no one forced me to buy the season pass. I purchased it of my own free will and intent, well aware of the content we were getting, but completely... #2.2.3

Forgive me, but I fail to understand the point you're making with these facts. What exactly does the development cost of past games have to do with the price of tea in China? In other words, what does that have to do with the subject discussed in the blog entry?

I think we're all well aware of development cost increases in the past twenty years, but the point being made in this blog is the fact that developers are both insulting the intelligence and betraying the loya... #2.2

I'm so pleased to see one of Meagan Marie's cosplay on the list (black dress, second to last.) #33

Yeah, this review wasn't comparable in length to my other pieces because I really didn't have too much to say this time around. As for Driveclub, I haven't touched it since my review; I'm waiting for most of the issues to be worked out and I'll probably pick up a preowned copy to be safe and give it another go. Naturally, I'll do a new write up to reflect it should my opinion change. #3.1

From the way the review was going back when it was a "review in progress," I did not think the score was going to be an 8.5. Good to know IGN thought it was a great game too. #5

Agreed. NFS Underground was what my PS2 saw the most of growing up, that's for sure. Absolute favourite title in the series, that. #1.1

Titanfall Deluxe Edition went from $49.99 to $12.50. That's insane. It's a shame I didn't care for the game enough to keep it, $12 is an absolute steal. I liked it a lot and it was great for what it was, but really isn't my cup of tea. Still, I might have to consider the sale...$12. Wow. #4

It's listed at $98 on the BioWare Store and has photos of a model wearing it. It looks pretty good and it was my favourite outfit for Commander Shepard in ME3. I added myself to the newsletter so I'll be alerted when it's available to purchase. I absolutely love this jacket. #6
