    Franchises you used to get excited for but don't anymore...

    Devil May Cry - The fanbase caused this one. 3 years of nothing but flame wars, trolling, and negativity has left me sour to the entire franchise. Add that to the fact I didn't particularly enjoy DmC... and I'm of the opinion "I don't care anymore". Gears of War - Dialogue still kicks ass. The fact that I'm doing essentially the same thing 8 years later in terms of gameplay with some...

    Holy hell, so Sony managed to lose nigh 7 billion dollars on the PS3? And geez, look at that trend. PS1 - 3.13 billion profit PS2 - 2.20 billion profit PS3 - 6.89 billion dollar loss If Sony doesn't get their act together, PS4 could be the 4th in what is already a diminishing return turned loss. ...

    Sensei said:Bayonetta. It's just an overrated copycat of Devil May Cry/God of War except you play as a prostitute/hooker or something like that. I don't understand what's the draw in. Shit game and ppl are hyped for sequel. lol Bayonetta was directed by the guy who made Devil May Cry, which in turn inspired the creation of God of War... hence the similarities between the three...

    I don't see the big issue with QTE's as long as they are used correctly. QTE's in Bayonetta? Horrible. Came out of no where, failure force you to restart from the last checkpoint, and adversely affected your ending score due to instant death from failing the QTE. Metal Gear Rising? Other than the odd "mash this to survive", I loved those QTE's. Ripping out spines, initiating Blade mode...

    Would an industry crash be such a bad thing?

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 May 2013

    Dodece said:What we are seeing isn't the slow onset of a crash, but a all typical contraction that takes place after a market bubble bursts. When Nintendo unleashed the Wii into the market, and a few game developers had incredible mega hits that were massively profitable. Speculative investors stampeded into the industry to unload their wallets in the hopes of making easy money. That in...

    Japan sales: Famitsu, Media Create & Dengeki - Week 17 ( Apr 22 - Apr 28 )

    in Sales Discussion on 01 May 2013

    So the Vita is stabilizing to a level of 15K to 20K. Probably not what Sony was hoping for considering the 3DS is still outselling them by an average of 3 to 1 in Japan, but better than the 7 to 9 K a week it was at. In regards to the Wii U, Nintendo better get their act together soon, or I'm not seeing a comeback happening. Moving on, my hope is that Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon's initial...
