NFL Blitz! Whaaaaa? Sign me up.
i cant wait for the ps vita. anyway, im hoping that the ressistance 3 dlc will be good.
I was a fan of NFL Street 2. Would I like NFL Blitz?
NFL Street is NFL Blitz's son. NFL Blitz is the shit and thats why they made the new game!
A little thin as expected. Can't wait for the industry to kick into gear again.
man i used to get down with Blitz
no uncharted dlc? :/
were the holy f*** are the ps2 classics ? i've been waiting for months now for a good PS2 game on the store.
These guys may do PSN store previews every week, but they're just trolling for hits. (i.e. they're not a credible website). We won't know what all will be in the update until the update/official blog post. So it's possible we'll get some PS2 games. But don't hold your breath. This IS sony we're dealing with, after all.
On the official Playstation blog they did say early next year (2012) but whether it'll be in the first weeks/months update I'm not sure so I also wouldn't hold my breath!.. The above said they did hint it would be worth waiting for, and hinted that there will be a slew of great PS2 titles hitting when they do finally get the PS2 classics on PSN :D "nope… I am really sorry I really did try but it is out of my hands. We will see them very early next year and to be honest its a good thing we are waiting because we will be releasing some games on launch that you will REALLY want." http://blog.eu.playstation....
Yeah it's not official yet since Sony hasn't said anything... but I have noticed from my time on N4G.. this site has actually been pretty damn near accurate about all the new releases each week via PSN and PSNstore... they maybe just speculating... but on a week to week basis they usually have everything that is going to be released in the new week.
they don't troll for hits.
@Canary PSLS has been doing these previews for a long time, and they have been right on the money most of the time. In fact, I wish more sites would "troll for hits" like this. This could almost pass as real news. I know that it's rare for us to find real news on N4G, so I don't blame you for getting confused.
Still waiting for Amy.......
...and PS2 classics on the EU store and doesn't look like they are comming this week! :/
TheGamer Writes "Harmonix has proven plenty of times it can make Rock Band work without instruments."
I mean, yeah, but was anyone saying otherwise? The fact is people liked the plastic instruments rather than pressing buttons on a controller. They enjoyed the simulated experience.
"Work"? No, but to be good? It's absolutely necessary. Not having the accessories is like playing a lightgun shooter with an analog stick sure it works, but one experience is completely unique and fun as hell, and other is torture trying to make do playing in a way it was never meant to be played
"trying to make do in a way it was never meant to be played" I disagree. The accessories were a fun gimmick (and very marketable) but they were added AFTER the genre had been well established with games like Frequency and Amplitude (both also made by Harmonix). The gameplay formula is different on a controller - there's a focus on switching lanes and contributing to all of the instruments. Never played Frequency, but Amplitude and Rock Band Blitz were really good. I would love to get more of that kind of game. It's basically a different part of the genre, and stands on its own.
The insurmountable difference in popularity between Amplitude and Rock Band proves my point
Popularity isn't proof of quality. If it was, then Harmonix wouldn't be making music for Fortnite now. lol. Our disagreement wasn't over which one is more popular. Amplitude and Blitz just aren't "torture" to play. Rock Band 4 and Guitar Hero Live failed to revive their sub-genre, and Rock Band 4 caused Mad Catz to have to file for bankruptcy. Doesn't mean that instrument-based music games are bad. It does mean that there's too much overhead and risk for anyone to take a gamble on a big budget game that needs instrument accessories now though. For the genre to thrive, for now, it needs to do so without the instrument accessories. That's just a fact, unfortunately. VR games like Beat Sabre (a new sub-genre) and traditional music games make more sense and are more viable right now.
*"If quality is always proved by popularity, then Harmonix wouldn't be making music for Fortnite now."
I think CHEAP plastic instruments is THE reason why the instrument-genre ‘died’. People invested in buying the game AND the peripherals, so the guitar, the dj-set, the drum, whatever, and the experience was absolutely fantastic. Great fun, great music, etc. But then the instruments would break. A button would stop working, or your hits wouldn’t register, and that kind of hardware failure would end in you not being able to play the game as intended, and thus you not getting the scores you deserve. So, now you had a great game, but a broken instrument, and nobody is gonna buy a new plastic instrument every 3-6 months in order to keep playing the game. A solution would have been to release better quality instruments (obviously), at a slightly higher price, so you could have kept the new games coming and the genre alive, but sadly, that didn’t happen.
The only issue I ever had with any of the hardware was the drum pedal on the original rock band set stared to crack in half. The reason I, and other friends I know who played, lost interest is they weren't putting out new tracks that we were interested in anymore. I think earlier this year I looked through the releases for the last 2 years or so, and there was maybe 3 songs I would have bought.
Yeah I had this happen too with my drum controller, I ended up attaching a metal strip to it which fixed it up nicely.
Can it work? Yes. Does it compare? No.
Bust a Groove, Gitaroo Man and Parrapa the Rappa were such good games. Neither needed any extra peripherals
You still find the dumbass controllers for Rock Band and Guitar Hero kicking around thrift stores and garage sales. I think they are the most thrown away piece of plastic ever created besides the plastic bag.
