CRank: 5Score: 0

The servers were down for about 45 minutes right after the official launch. Before then, and since then, they have been working fine, at least for me and most others. That's pretty darn good for a new game. Destiny didn't have any issues, but that's not the norm for big online games.

The only real issue people have been having is that thing with the computer near the beginning, where some people aren't able to access it and some are lining up, etc. I didn&...

The most alarming thing I see on here is that Fallout 4 is second most with 36 over MGS5 and Bloodborne.

Fallout 4 isn't bad, but it is way too buggy and fairly underwhelming after Fallout 3/New Vegas that, in my opinion, it's only a good, not great game. "Good" games don't deserve GOTY awards.

Gonna guess, like me, most people will strongly disagree with this. Dark Cloud 2 was probably the best ps2 game, alongside Dragon Quest 8 and Persona 4 (obviously for RPG fans). Everything about it was better than the original (gameplay, story, graphics, mini-games/side content, characters, etc.).

Obviously it's an opinion, but it's just that I'm not sure I've ever heard of anyone that's played both preferring the first one over the second. The first is...

While I never thought it needed a handheld update or all the "upgrades" that FFIV got, I think FFVI would really do well as a completely remade HD console game. It's definitely the most "mature" Final Fantasy, and in my opinion, has the best story (with Tactics being the possible exception, which could also use a remake).

Another one just begging for a remake is Xenogears. It's still one of my favorite games of all time and it could really benefi...

No matter how good the news, no matter how interesting the topic, no matter how great the tech, etc., I would recommend never clicking on a gamingbolt link. Probably the worst big name site that gets linked. All of their articles are either complete rehashes of others or complete flame/click-bait.

On topic, I'm really excited about the tech and while not quite as excited about the game (Crackdown 2 was barely an average game), I'm hoping it has the fun factor the fi...

Yeah, that would be like saying FF7 is about a group of revolutionists called Avalanche, or FF8 is about a guy trying to become a member of a group called SEED, or...etc.

The initial part of the game will probably be about a few friends traveling around on a road trip at it's most basic explanation, but in what will probably be a 50-60 hour + main storyline, there will obviously be much, much more to it than that.

While I would definitely prefer a full console remake of FFVI before VIII and IX, I do hope they all happen eventually. As for aging the best, I would say IX has aged much better than VIII, especially with the draw system, which would need a major overhaul in a remake, and the graphical style.

As for the article: I understand the guy's opinion is that FFVIII is the better game, but even if I agreed, I would consider Squenix morons if they made it before FFVII. FFVII is...

Yeah, many people, including me, feel FFVI has a more mature storyline simply because FFVII does a lot of quirky and humorous elements at random spots quite often throughout the game, and FFVI has few of them.

FFVII actually has a pretty dark and mature theme and story at its base, and I would be curious to see how it would play out in a more realistic game. Although, I hope they don't leave out all bits of humor/levity, which is a trademark ...

While it does suck that some great games (like the ones mentioned) don't sell what they should for the quality they represent, the reason is because they are fairly niche titles.

The Witcher 3, being a western RPG (and a sequel to other well-received games), isn't really all that niche, as the genre is fairly popular.

Anyway, great news for The Witcher, definitely deserves it, and hopefully more.

Way too much praise. Also, I'm guessing you mean Take-Two, not 2k. 2k is a subsidiary.

Sure, Bioshock and Borderlands are great series' but Take-Two is definitely not the best publisher. Actually, it's really hard to determine best publisher considering the wide range that some of them release. I would say Sony, considering the massive range of different types of games they release. I think it's pretty obvious you meant "best developer" (which...

It seems some people are under the mistaken impression that this commercial has everything to do with E3 and that because some of these games are already released they are somehow obsolete.

This is just a ps4 commercial touting its recent and relatively near-future (except UC4) lineup of big name games (most) to sell the system. This isn't a preview commercial for E3 or anything. Granted, a lot of these games will be at E3 at various conferences, and obviously it's ...

Actually they have a long standing history of not just scoring games controversially for traffic, but basically everything they write is click-bait, ridiculous articles.

Guerrilla's new game Horizon, will probably be at E3 (so no worries about Killzone being there, if you don't like it) and if the graphics are up to their usual standards, it will be one of, if not the, big game of the show.

TLG would obviously be the biggest reveal if it's at the show, but I'm not sure we will see it (although, hopefully we will).

This is really only true about games that are thought to do better in Japan than the US/Europe (also, Colossus and ICO came out 10+ years ago).

The Last Guardian has a pretty strong fan expectation and longing. E3 gets far more viewers and attention than TGS, so for a game with the recognition and borderline mythos, at this point, as TLG, I see E3 as being the most likely place for a re-reveal.

That being said, I don't plan on getting my hopes up eithe...

This is Activision. If the game sells well, what you fear WILL happen, sadly.

While I'm not a big fan of Colin Cowherd, I don't think he has much to worry about.

For the record, I think he's by far the worst of the three morning/daytime ESPN radio guys, with Mike&Mike and SVP and Rusillo being FAR superior and actually enjoyable. He's a shock jock announcer who says stuff to get a rise out of people (which is what his threat to quit is really about), but he's just not a good announcer, he repeats himself constantly and his vo...

It's unlikely they would do a Hindu version of God of War. There are WAY too many practicing the religion for them to risk the controversy for such a high profile game.

I always thought Norse mythology would make a good GoW game. As for Kratos, I don't necessarily think he has to be back. His story was pretty much done after GoW 3. It wouldn't really make sense to put him into a game about a different mythology, unless they wanted to completely rewrite him to ...

Not many games I would rather have than Dark Cloud 3.

However, even if Level5 was making it, there is almost no chance it would be first announced at a small event like this, but would wait for either a Sony conference or E3.

Also, there is a real chance that if Dark Cloud 3 did get made, someone else would make it (maybe a Sony first party).

Kojima Productions is (was) a subsidiary of Konami, so anything they do is owned by the parent company, Konami.
