We’ve got one murderous pep club right here…
Yeah, the mobile page is having some issues on my phone as well. Hope they’re fixing that up
I see where you’re coming from, but think back to the last time better specs has dictated a win in the console space. Currently the two systems have pretty much identical specs. If one had an OS that needed an extra gigabyte of RAM , then what difference does that make, especially because of the myriad multi-platform games that we get nowadays?
I can definitely see where you’re coming from there. And that is a real reason to be pissed .
There seem to be a lot of naysayers here, people who are dismissing this for doing more things that just what they want it to do, and that somehow that will make it some sort of “casual” experience. First of all, the whole casual vs hardcore thing just reeks of superiority and is creating a rift in the world of gaming for no reason, but that’s a debate for another day. But besides that, who doesn’t want a device that does more, if it can manage itself? Maybe I’m a bit partial because I’m in the market for a new set top box as well, but I was on the side of the PS4. After today and learning that the new Kinect (the first was pretty good for watching Netflex, imo) will ship with the Xbox, I’m now in Microsoft’s camp. I guess the biggest thing for me is whether Microsoft will charge for Xbox Live again. If so, I’m out.
Okay, yeah, but all the ones I’ve ever used are slow as hell and have terrible interfaces. I’d really like to see a device like this or Google TV or something come along and mend this problem with actual workable software.
Excuse me, but have you ever used a cable box. It’s among the worst experiences ever.
Wow, you just managed to demean two companies, both of which are doing incredibly interesting things, in three sentences
What I thought as well
Nothing against the games, but it just felt a little cumbersome doing so
Hold on, you’re making some weird accusations here. First of all, I’d hardly that the narrative of the Asylum was better. The plot twists actually kind of broke a hole in the pacing for me; it seems like every one was just an excuse to lengthen the gameplay time just a little, thus giving them a feel of video game pointlessness. Arkham City did have too many villains (they should just take one or two and focus on those, imo), but the plot felt concise, like a movie, but delivered over 10 hours. By the end of City, I felt genuinely emotionally stirred, but in the end of Asylum, I was almost a little glad to get done with it (especially because I thought it was going to be over a little after Croc).
I could tell something was familiar about him, just couldn’t quite pick up what it was…
Hell, can’t argue with you there. If I were to choose the single most impactful game of this generation, for the most amount of people, it would be between that and Angry Birds
Those were the two obvious ones that I couldn’t think of to post myself. Thanks
Yeah, those things made the whole place just a lot easier to get around, even on such a huge map as Panau
Agreed on many of those games (Mirror’s Edge, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Portal, etc), but I’d also like to add the following:
This game totally provided a perfect example of gameplay as narrative mechanic thing. So disturbing and thought provoking
Spec Ops: The Line
Another incredibly disturbing title. It’s one of the few titles that has done a super serious plot well.
The Walking Dead
Enough has been said about this. Brought back the adventure game
I played this last week after that feature was run on this site. If you’ve got an hour on your hands, play it now. Really compelling game that highlights the way a game can affect you using only text on a screen.
Just Cause 2
Just really fun. You can do just about anything you want to with this game, and it never gets old.
The Binding of Isaac
Might be my favorite video game soundtrack of all time. Combine that with incredible gameplay, this game pretty much sold me on rouge-likes
God, that title…
Anyways. Seems like it’ll be fun. The first was very fun, but I haven’t played any of the others
