PlayStation 4: The Gamer’s Choice

The PlayStation 4’s debut was undeniably strong. Revealed with numerous exclusive titles and technical specifications that are clearly designed to produce new videogame experiences, Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) presented a very strong case only to be met with a Microsoft reveal that wasn’t playing the same game. The past few weeks have been in the PlayStation 4’s pocket, but yesterday Xbox One came out fighting; do SCE have what it takes to keep the PlayStation 4 in pole position?

I was a hardcore Xbox gamer this generation with over 100k achievement points. For me the PS3 was the Blu-ray player sitting beside my games console of choice.
However after all these Microsoft poor decisions, I have got into my PS3 and I'm currently playing uncharted 3 and ordered The Last of Us. I am sorry to have missed the exclusives at time of release this generation for PS3.
Next generation as a hardcore gamer, PS4 is the gamers choice, I am happy to pre order this morning. Sony is doing wonders.

I bought an Xbox 360 first this gen because they had the games (Gears of War, Mass Effect) that I had to play. I bought a PS3 for MGS4 and Uncharted 2, and I haven't been disappointed in their first party titles since. And that isn't going to change, with The Last of Us and Beyond:Two Souls on the way. PS4 is the choice for those of us who care about our games, and the industry at large. Microsoft has failed their supporters, and I will not be supporting their policies any longer. My live gold subscription will soon lapse, but my PSplus isn't going anywhere. And I can't wait to play the likes of Destiny, Watch Dogs, The Division, and Infamous Second Son. PS4.

Kingdom Hearts Integrum Masterpiece Review [Capsule Computers]

Travis Bruno of Capsule Computers writes:

"When it comes to the Kingdom Hearts franchise, fans have had a variety of ways to play it throughout its incredibly long length. They could have followed it from 2002’s original release and subsequent questionably canon releases on handheld devices only to return to the core game again with Kingdom Hearts II to find out that yes, they were canon. Then in that wait until the third game the mixture of titles along the way and other numerous platforms would make following Kingdom Hearts‘ story a challenge even for the most eager fan. Square Enix made up for this prior to Kingdom Hearts III’s release by bringing together an HD pack collecting the game’s together in an easier to digest package for fans and releasing them on consoles only for PC fans to be left in the dark. That is of course until all of the games arrived on PC, but not in a way that many had hoped. See, PC users can be a fickle bunch and when the Kingdom Hearts collection arrived on PC exclusively through Epic Games, it may as well not exist. Now, three years after the fact, these same PC players can now enjoy the exact same games on Steam with a bit of extra support including Steam Deck compatibility with Kingdom Hearts Integrum Masterpiece. The question is, do all of these games still hold up on their Steam PC ports?"

Far from a 9, Square have left these games a janky mess since their epic release. Even now they have not said anything about fixing some of the problems that many steam reviews mention. You gotta download the re:fined mod to fix what square refuses to do.

My main complaint about the series is that it mixes Disney characters and Final Fantasy characters, but they are actually not important at all to the plot. I read summaries and watched videos about the series, even played the music game which tries to summarize the plot of each game, and the Disney and FF stuff are barely mentioned at all.
All the series really is, is an amalgamation of convoluted plots that tries too hard to be mysterious and edgy, with some cameos to attract fans of Disney and FF, who wouldn't care at all about the franchise otherwise.

Heck, even in the trailer above, the Disney/FF characters are... just there.
