As someone who owns a PSP Go, I don’t think having two analog nubs in that position is going to be very comfortable for long periods of time, so it’s probably a good thing most iOS games are designed to be played in very short bursts.
I wonder if they’re working on a Vita/PS3/4 version of DQVIII? I can’t imagine X/X-2 not selling like hot cakes an they said if sales were good, XII might be on the way. I don’t see why they wouldn’t throw DQVIII into the mix. It was one of the best games on PS2.
This headline is priceless.
I almost picked this game up and I’m really glad I didn’t.
The Ivalice games are some of my favorites, so I’m hoping for the best for Mr. Yoshida.
I’ll probably wait for the Vita version then. Seems like the perfect kind of game for the OLED screen.
Kinda wish Magicka came with all the DLC, but I still picked this up. Serious Sam 3 and Sanctum are two I’ve been looking at for a while, so it’s great to finally give them a chance.
Chris, I just want to say that I really love your reviews. There’s appears to be a playfulness to the way you approach the task of reviewing a game that I appreciate and also a sense that you actually enjoy what you do. As somebody who reads a lot of reviews from a bunch of different sites, it’s a nice change of pace from the usual, almost clinical, way that most of the journalists I see approach their job.
I kind of want to play it now too. I’ve played through it once before, but it’s been long enough that I don’t remember much of what happened during the story.
I won’t judge. That sword is pretty badass looking.
I’m not sure Dark Messiah’s combat will be any less loose – if you’re referring to being able to swing the camera around on a dime still – but the one thing that Dark Messiah did good with is making the actions feels like they have weight to them. Swinging your sword looks like it has momentum in Dark Messiah and bodies move satisfyingly when they’re dispatched.
You should! Pick it up on Steam if you get a chance.
The one game you didn’t list – Dark Messiah – is probably the only one (except Chivalry) that really got it right though. Most of those games just involves whacking things with your sword instead of actually slicing or stabbing.
More like first-person whacking.
I would say Dishonored or Dark Messiah are more serious first-person stabbers.
As I’ve gotten older, I find myself simply not caring that PCs are more powerful. I feel like I’m getting too old to want to deal with fidgeting with settings and upgrading hardware. I just want to sit down and play my game.
Are you talking about how the car isn’t casting a correct one?
To this day, Renegade stands as the only MP shooter that I could actually have fun with. I might try X out when it’s released because I’m interested if they managed to retain what made the original so fun for me.
I’m hoping Sony puts a little more effort into the Hot Shots franchise this generation. I’d love a full console sequel to Get a Grip. Probably my favorite tennis game behind Super Tennis.
Yeah, this is what I do.
I had a healthy collection of Vita titles already waiting for me by the time I finally got one, and I’ll probably have a similarly healthy collection of PS4 titles through Plus as well.
The Rift doesn’t remove staring at monitors from the equation though.
Not that I have any complaints, but is this the future of TV licensed games? All of them developed by Telltale?
This game reminds me of Rubber for some reason, that movie about the sentient tire that makes people explode.
This doesn’t even make sense. Why would it be more difficult to write a female character?
I was kind of hoping that this was an English version of Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient, but then I remembered that’s Xseed and not Atlus. It’s my own fault, but I feel pretty disappointed right now.
I just don’t get this. I dunno. I mean, I like watching things get destroyed as much as the next guy, but not when they’re brand new. At least the MythBusters go for things that are about to fall apart on their own anyway.
This just seems like a waste.
If the puns in this thread continue to be this bad, it truly will be the end of nations.
This looks more like Cube World than it does Minecraft.
I really hope this is a return to form for Monolith; a game with a bit more substance than their last couple of outings (that LotR MOBA and Gotham City Imposters). Ever since they outsourced the godawful F.E.A.R.3 to another studio, they haven’t done much in the way of getting back to where they used to be.
I’m ready. Let’s do this, Naughty Dog.
