Author and Grappling Editor for Vox Media / SBNation site Bloody Elbow, the best blog in Mixed Martial Arts.
Release the 20th anniversary directors cut collectors meme edition already.
Been reading sony do audit people and ban from network. Also dlc and updates might be an issue.
Polygon’s most hyped game in the last couple of years.
I’m guessing ps4 because it’s much easier to develop for than ps3 … Even if ps3 has the much greater user base.
Great! Although, I’m not that fussed about the various probe / abortion / whatever else that was banned. I just baulk at anyone telling me what media experience they think is suitable for my own personal consumption, especially when no one is actually being harmed in its production.
Bah. Damn you Germany.
I forget, are PS3 games still region free? Maybe I should get a US import.
They didn’t hide Washington’s role in the essential genocide of the indigenous native tribes.
They also gave Shaun Hastings dialogue to counter the alleged nobility of the patriots actions.
I genuinely forgot there was ever a Max Payne movie. I’m still not sure it actually exists, I never watched it.
Will the UK version be uncensored, or will everywhere in Europe have to be like Germany because it’s easier to publish for that region?
Nothing will ever top the passive aggressive roasting of XBOne he achieved during his PS4 keynote at E3 last year.
She can’t be a 14 year old girl anymore.
I’m sure WB Games will run the series into the ground after Rocksteady is done.
WB property Rockstar could reinvent? How about … The Matrix?
And an Adam West voiceover option in New Game Plus.
Like Arkham Origin’s I Am The Night mode, probably. One life, no continues. Death means game over, start again from the beginning.
There is a perfect system, it’s called invincibility mode, and takes the challenge out of gaming.
Unless we go back to the side scrolling fighting, shooting and platform sprite games where you have X number of lives and ghost back into the exact spot you were killed to continue. Lose all your lives, you still have to continue at the last checkpoint.
Checkpoints are there for accomplishment, not just to prevent starting a game right from the beginning again. The GTA 5 quick save worked great for free roaming, but still checkpoints are there for missions.
I agree that with varying difficulty modes can come more or less frequent checkpoints.
Maybe they realised the TONS of negative PR they were getting wasn’t worth it and could effect their bottom line.
Or maybe Hersheys, Cadburys and Mars legally threatened them back.
Also if there’s not a Chicken Soup Grenade gadget, it’ll be a missed opportunity.
These games always reminded me of Connect 4 though the game rules are a bit different.
It’ll be interesting to see how much this follows or deviates from ‘Heart of Ice’, the seminal episode from the first season of Batman: The Animated Series, written by Paul Dini.
Out of the issues I had with Origins, the story wasn’t really one of them.
Don’t screw this up, WB Montreal.
AC series still has major problems, not helped by firing the guy that made the series as viable as it is for Ubisoft with AC II, which is still the series’ high point. Origins is a step back for the Arkham series and the result of WB cutting costs at the expense of quality. I only hope Rocksteady returns with a true successor to ’City.
I loved my megadrive. So many classic games. Street Fighter II Championship Edition, Flashback (my avatar), Road Rash II, Lotus Challenge, Aladdin, Lion King, Cool Spot, Earthworm Gym, Sunset Riders, Streets of Rage II, Shadow Dancer, Alien Storm, Toejam & Earl, Mortal Kombat II, Sonic 1, 2 and 3, Gods, Comix Zone … loved them all.
Another game franchise screwed up by a Montreal developer. Shocker! :)
I still quite happily dip into GTAIV, Red Dead Redemption, and random Assassins Creed games. Sometimes I’ll play Red Dead Redemption just play the in-game poker while listening to a podcast.
When was Connor ever in a canoe? I know Aveline was in Liberation.
Even more for Candy Swipe to sue for.
I doubt you’ll be missed.
How is Dark Souls even relatable to The Last of Us? Two entirely different games and experiences. I find these sort of comments bizarre.
