They need the money and playstation install base

darthv72309d ago

....the same base that crapped all over it?

@darthv72

Again, the devs is just trying to make more profit because PS has a bigger userbase. I can't speak on the playstation install base or if they crapped over the game. I don't know anything about that.

Lightning77309d ago

For 60$? Hell naw the games worth at least 20 or 30.

I'm surprised they're still releasing it for that much.

DarXyde309d ago

Lightning77,

"For 60$? Hell naw the games worth at least 20 or 30."

Do you mean at most? This doesn't read well.

The game has always come across as a bit of a novelty. I don't know how long it is or what replayability looks like, but yeah, I reckon a premium of $40 is probably most tolerable. Rick and Morty is in decline too, so I think the demand for this game is going to be a bit muted.

Ah, your true colors are beginning to show again! I don’t recall a “base” crapping all over anything, but I’m sure you have that same energy for Xbox fans who do the same with Final Fantasy then port beg.

I, just one of the ps install base of the 100 something million , have no interest in it. You can't take the handful of us here who weren't interested as the majority base. Come on dude your old enough to know better

Darth. I'm ps and I really want to play it. I'm just keen to see if it's the AAA proof of xbox exclusives that some people in that install base were saying it is.

gold_drake308d ago

its .. not.
its a fun game, if you are into that kind of humor.
it does look good, but ganeplay couldnt be more generic for a first person shooter.

LoveSpuds308d ago

It's pretty good, like a solid 7/10 in my opinion. I did find I had to push through towards the end but overall I had a good time with it (I do really enjoy Rick & Morty, so enjoyed the humour in this game too).

In my view, this is the problem with games going to gamepass, it completely devalues your game. All of the zeitgeist has gone, people have moved on and then, on top of that, you expect PlayStation fans to pay 60-70 quid for what is now an old title that was given away for peanuts. Even if I wanted to play the game again on PS5, there is no way I am spending more than 20-30 quid, the hype has been used up, its an old game at this point.

darthv72309d ago

Now maybe PS fans will stop hating on it. Its fun / funny and worth a play through.

Christopher309d ago

Or maybe people will realize it wasn't just "PS fans" hating on it.

I'm a really big Rick and Morty fan. I got a bit bored of it after 2 or so hours. May try it again when it's cheap.

BrainSyphoned308d ago

Nope not playing it anywhere. If it is day one PS+ I wouldn't even add it to my library.

Asplundh308d ago

Who said they weren't? In response to Playstation gamers saying that MS was taking games from it's competition by buying up developers, Xbox gamers claimed that Sony was ALSO keeping games from the competition by making timed deals, never was the narrative that timed exclusive were bad.

It would be irrational to think it's ok for a company to buy a developer or plublisher and not ok for a company to make timed deals on 3rd party games.

Outside_ofthe_Box308d ago (Edited 308d ago )

"Who said they weren't?"

Gee... I dunno... maybe... the people who use it as a reason why Microsoft are the good guys for buying Activision? Even though MS themselves do timed exclusives as well?

"Xbox gamers claimed that Sony was ALSO keeping games from the competition by making timed deals, never was the narrative that timed exclusive were bad."

#1. Microsoft is ALSO keeping games from the competition by making timed deals. Using this as a comeback to buying a publisher is silly because Sony's timed deals are a response to Microsoft's timed deals. Let's not even get started on the fact that timed deals are nowhere near equivalent to to buying a publisher which bring me to #2...

#2. Timed deals are not permanent. So they aren't taking games away at all unlike buying up the biggest publishers in the industry. People that demonize Sony for timed 3rd party deals but then say Microsoft are doing good by gamers everywhere by buying multiplatform publishers are crazy.

def play this one. I had a great time

Sciurus_vulgaris308d ago

I’m in the same boat as you. While I did find some of the humour annoying, mainly Kenny and Roiland-voiced characters. High on Life’s gameplay and story are actually pretty solid, in my opinion.

ken2813309d ago

As the President of the PS fan club…. We good!!!!

ibrake4naps309d ago

hope they added a new gun, level, or VR support

PunksOnN4G308d ago

^ this i mean they made a few VR games for PSVR idk why they would miss the chance to make this to a top tier VR title

ocelot07308d ago

Would deffinetly buy if it had psvr 2 support.
