Are they even comparible? Whats next? Comparing the switch with the scorpio? The pro and the scorpio are two different beasts born from different mantras set to accomplish two very different things. For MS it's a bit of a reset switch and a chance to get an edge graphically over the competition and make up for thoise last few mistakes made at the onset of the current generation. The PRO is just a minor update to future proof the ps4 this gen a little. Both are fantastic but considering th...

"Still, what, if anything, has he ever actually raved about? Go to him not for your 10/10 thumbs-up good-purchase approval; go to him to highlight the areas in which a great game may still have fallen short, and modulate your expectations when you encounter them. Have we lost all sense of judgment?"

Good to see somebody still understands the point of Jim Sterling. Same can be said for Ben Yahtzee Croshaw, when I see people complain about his bad reviews I just wee...

And I thought I was bad for buying it on console both digitally and the physical special edition as well as a copy for the pc (and an atlas tatoo, dont look at me!!!).

I was honstely afraid to admit I spent more than 60 euro on the game after the amount of vitriol the gaming media and community spewed out after release. I was absolutely loving every second of the game and felt ashamed for enjoying it, liek a horrible secret I had to hide form the world...

A fragment? None of it is anything they hyped for the game. Base building, land vehicles, races etc? Thats a fragment of nothing promised because they were never discussed pre-release.

The only things missing that were discussed were some creatures and the scope of space battles. We got the latter in the foundation update, everything else was hyperbolic over reactions because every second of the game didn't play like the trailers or people...

9-in-1 * It lists the famicom/nes and snes/superfamicom and megadrive/genesis as seperate consoles despite them being the same. Still a nice bit of kit, especially the ability to save cartridge data to SD card. Will help keep a collectors cartridges nice and clean and safe in their boxes :)

Yeah this was definitely an activision decision. "What do you mean people won't have to rebuy the items they already bought for the new game?! That's not going to happen guys. How will we build money fires to keep our live-in servants warm throughout the winter?!"

I remember when they first announced it as a trilogy, they made a huge deal about your character going on this ten year journey with Bungie. Sounds like a decision made by Activision Execs, if the die hards cant carry over the items they paid money for they'll probably pay money for items again and also it makes the sequel more accessible to people who didn't buy the first game. It's a business decision, not one that will improve experience for existing players.

He lost me at "FFXIII-2", if thats his idea of a good game then I can see how vastly our opinions differ.

Must be a UK & Ireland thing. Or just a stupid "you live in a heavy populated city" thing. Or just a "varies from store to store based on consumer habits" thing, who knows. Point being, Rocketpandas not entirely wrong with his experiences, he's just noticing a trend. And its not a doom and gloom trend so hold on to your bum fluff.

Now, I don't frequent gaming stores all that often cos I've worked in them...

See this is the problem with reading things and taking it as law without investigating the issue clearly for yourself, to give you a reverse example, for citizens in North Korea (not all but most) the Great Leader will go down as the greatest person in history, but outside of their little closed in propaganda bubble, we know the "great leaders" of North Korea are the most fraudulent, lied and hyped cunts on the planet, ever. (maybe not EVER, but I'm bein...

It's called "Media Narrative". Whatever is popular in the lexicon, the mass media will go with it. If it's "lets all hate HG" then the media will look for stories or quotes to twist to that narrative. If it's "Everyone loves the new update" then they'll switch it around. One of the most recent toxic examples of tabloid journalism seeping in to gaming journalism i've witnessed lately is a little show called "The Know". It's like a...

Was their procedural game set in space not set in space or something?? What fraud? I think your own imagination and expectations were the fraudulent party here. I dunno, humans are weird eh?

Read the article, the above blurb was taken from like the third paragraph in, its not even the opening statement!! Overwatch getting GOTY is barely even discussed in the article, hiss issues with the VGA's lie elsewhere, primarily that the focus is more on reveals, spectacle and musical acts, rather than the awards and the craft itself.

However he does realise WHY the focus lies there, that it's needed for there to be any sort of show at...

Well according to many reports over the last decade, the place is horrendous to work in. Konami's corporate culture is sadistic and orwellian apparently, so none of that should surprise you or make you question it. Here's a handy little link to the most recent expose. A lot of japanese companies are known to behave in this way, actually.

Why the downvotes for swiftFox?? He states clearly in the interview that Tabata reached out to him personally to discuss the foundations of what makes a final fantasy game so he could carry on the feeling from those earlier games. Something nobody else has done since taking the helm of an FF game. Which speaks volumes for FFXV (and explains why XIII just didnt feel like a final fantasy game in spirit at all!).

However he made it pretty clear that this was just to show his f...

He caught Nausicaa Valley Of The WInd in theatres :) I always assumed that influenced key parts of the FF series in some way (e.g Chocobos) but now its more or less confirmed. This was a great interview and a wonderful insight.

Hope him and Uematsu work together again soon. OR START A GOD DAMN BAND!!!! Black Mages reunion with guest musician Sakaguchi maaaaybe!? Wishful thinking -_-

Mixelon, still as level headed and down to earth as always when it comes to games and understanding each ones focus and purpose :) Too many wierd people running the fun of our medium I think. I actually stopped visiting gaming community websites for a while early in the summer because, just couldnt hack the vitriol anymore XD Good to see you're still spreading some good vibes. Maybe I'll see you at the galactic hub, good sir.

Come join the galactic hub, when you're ready of course :) Getting there might prove difficult, but its quite the rewarding journey to undertake. I'm almost there myself :D

Of course, complete the goals you've set yourself first :) (one key to enjoying the game fully, set yourself tasks, the game was designed with this in mind *cue hate reply of "the deve...

I've always felt like a nobody, PlatinumGX, but now you've confirmed it. Which actually takes a load off my mind. To quote Conor Oberst "I'm happy just because I've found out I am really no one."

No one plays this game.

I am no one.

As are the numerous people on actual supportive NMS communitys (tonnes of people still eagerly playing, just have to sift through the internets clickbait, the hate and of course t...
