"Somehow because we are dealing with videogames , some sort of double standards where we are all supposed to lament a job loss , when for too many people that thought wouldnt compute in their mind , if it was about some factory and anything not tied to games"

I don't think it's a double standard, I think most gamers probably just don't pay much attention to that stuff in real life because they're not really exposed to it, or at least not in a way tha...

From a legal/business perspective they were in the right. Morally though, they're bankrupt. I'm not an idealist, I know we don't live in a perfect world, but to take away someone's livelihood just because he accidentally explained how localization works and responded to annoying fans always bitching about Nintendo for niche titles that like all of 3 people want in a slightly less than nice tone isn't right, and given Nintendos desperate attempt at trying maintain a "f...

Ill give you the same answer to your "whenever psn/xbl is down" as I did to the network argument. The networks hardly every go down for any extended period of time. And guess what? Most gamers can find something else to do during those extremely rare instances, like catch up with a few episodes of their favorite tv show, watch a movie, read a book, listen to music, make something to eat, go outside, or hell, even play another game. I've got more plus games than I know what to d...

That guy at Nintendo didn't deserve to be fired. Punished maybe, but not fired. The guy didnt even really say anything bad about the company.

Konami is worse obviously, but Nintendo is still a shitty company as well.

Destiny addict here.

Don't buy it. If you like it, you'll be addicted to it, but in an unsatisfying way, not addicted because it's so good.

If you don't like it, then you'll have ended up wasting your money, maybe. Depending on what the taken king adds, I'd wager to bet that the taken king, plus all the expansions, is just enough content to make the asking price acceptable.

I've gotten my fill of action shooters, stealth games are where it's at now. Silently picking off enemies one by one, disposing of npc bodies before the others find them, using distractions to lure enemies away from groups.

Much more satisfying than simply aiming at an enemy and pressing the trigger off and on.

If that's the case, then they should have used that excuse for all thr supernatural occurrences in mgs. Was so disappointed when they took out the mystery of vamps "immortality", and some of the other stuff they explained away as "nanomachines".

Yeah, screw Nintendo, last straw for me. Just gonna buy all their games used from now on. They could have just punished the guy, they didnt have to destroy his livelihood. Sure, Nintendo in the right legally, but morally, well they can go f themselves. Rules are rules, sure, but you dont have to be a fng robot about them. Far as I'm concerned, theyre nothing but a bunch of corporate suits, really no better than any of the other big crappy game companies.

Lol, I love this argument. Oh no, I won't get to play that game for 1 hour a month (aproximately how much my internet actually goes down, and it's usually for maintenance), better just not buy it at all.

I played Destiny pretty heavily, pretty much for an entire year, and I can count on one hand the amount of times internet being down has affected my experience in the game.

" It is very realistic."

Maybe, but realism isn't always the best thing.

"So you absolutely do not have to play the game like a third person shooter"

You kind of do, well at least I do, because I'm not one to just sneak past every enemy without conflict of any kind, I like to tranq enemies at the very least. I'm not one of those speedrunners that like to do everything they can to race to the end as soon as...

Tried playing this about a year ago, I remember enjoying it when I played it at launch, but playing it recently, I can't get into it. I tried playing it as a stealth only game, but it really doesn't have very good stealth elements. Being spotted from 10 miles away raising an insta alarm, unlike most games where the enemy will sit there bewildered for a few seconds and check to see if what they're seeing is actually right, like a gradual realization that it's a threat rather th...

So you don't play any games then? Too bad, you're missing out.

Every game has bugs, even if they aren't apparent or don't appear to affect you, they're still there.

It really is a good game... with friends. I've put a similarly embarrassing amount of time into Destiny as well, but it's solely because of the people I met whilst playing it. Had I not found several of the coolest online friends playing Destiny, I'd have quit 3 months in, perhaps even less. It's also the only reason I'm getting the taken king.

Despite its MANY flaws, it is a really good game to play with friends, more so than most any other online game I&...

"Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 still manages to pull in more monthly players three years post launch than most games manage to retain for 6 months. Shocking, isn't it?"

That's insanely shocking, especially considering Black Ops 3 isnt even out yet.

Arizona green tea. Used to like the others, but they are too sweet for me now for some reason. Oh and their lemonade (not lemon tea) is pretty good as well.

BC games dont get any bump, they look the same as they do on the 360. And yeah, I'd pay extra to have a game look better, that's literally the whole point of a remaster. If it doesn't look better, then what's the point?

Gears 1 definitely looks noticeably better remastered than the 360 version, I'd like the same thing to happen with gears 3, but because of this, we wont see it. Another benefit to remastered games is that it brings new players to the games,...

Does anyone know if I'll be able to play backwards compatible games on xbox one online if I don't havr xbox live? I'm currently on the xbl sharing with my brother, he owns the account, so I can currently play xbone titles online because of it, but I'm pretty sure 360 does not havr that feature, so will I be able to play xbox one 360 bc titles online, or how is that going to work?

296d ago 0 agree0 disagreeView comment

Meh, I'd rather have remastered versions than backwards compatible versions. If I wanted to play the originals as they were with no improvements, I'd just play my original copies on 360. Backwards compatibility is good too, but I don't like that this now means gears 3 probably won't be remastered. Didn't like 2. This will also probably set a new trend for certain publishers to be even lazier with their remastered games. They'll probably start selling bc title collec...

@astil

You sure about that?

Here's what results I get when searching for Battlefield 4 premium.

I have searched around, EA have NOT released a premium version of BF4 on disc, probably because they want people to pay the full 50 bucks for the premium service instead of waiting for a retailer deal where t...

It's really not that big of a deal. Plus, I can give them a little slack, because as far as remastered collections go, the mcc is by FAR the most technically advanced and most ambitious. I can play a playlist of missions from each game, without quitting out of the game, then I can go straight to the multiplayer and play with 100s of maps across completely different games.

Lets compare that to something like Borderlands, where I have to close out the whole game entirely ju...
