DRL commented on Venom Invades Pinball FX2 on December 11th:

Really, REALLY hoping this is killer. I'm a huge fan of Spidey, the symbiotes and pinball, so this has the potential to be my favorite Pinball FX2 table ever. Fingers crossed.



DRL commented on Kan-Ra Joins Killer Instinct Season 2 Next Week:

I still haven't given this game the proper attention. I really, really want to, but I'm really, really not a fan of getting bits and pieces here and there. After all of the Season Two content has been released, maybe then I'll give in. If a story mode similar to the one in the last Mortal Kombat ever comes to be, then I'm in immediately.



DRL commented on Gunsport Coming to Xbox One in Early 2015:

Every time I pass by this screenshot on the main page I think of Mortal Kombat 2 & 3 — I have no idea why. Now I want to go dust off the SNES and get my fatality on.



DRL commented on Stick It To This Week's Deals With Gold:

@TylerTreese Yeah, Stick it to the Man is pretty great. There's a little bit to be desired when it comes to the gameplay, but the world and characters are so fantastic that it hardly matters. I can't wait to see what Zoink does next. The sketches they were teasing via their Twitter account during #inktober were ridiculously cool.



DRL commented on Could Those Radical Battletoads Be Gearing Up ...:

@sinalefa Good point. I'm sure there are plenty of capable studios that Microsoft could call on to handle a new Battletoads. I'm not all that confident in WayForward's talents anymore, but I would love to see Battletoads with mechanics similar to Double Dragon Neon. I really dug that game. I know many others weren't as fond of it, but I thought it looked and played so damn good. It's how I imagine modern day arcade beat-'em-ups would play.

Any particular developer you'd like to see head a new 'toads project?



DRL commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

@HEADESTROYER4 I have absolutely no idea how it would run on a Surface — I'm completely unfamiliar with that hardware, to be honest. You should do a YouTube search for footage to see if it's something you'd be interested in. You basically just poke around town and interact with environments and characters. So many nods to episodes and secrets to find.



DRL commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Yeah, I agree with everyone saying that Hit & Run rules. It's a bit underwhelming when it comes to gameplay, but the open-world and all of the fan service makes up for it. And I'm with @Tasuki when it comes to the arcade game — it's easily my all-time fave Simpsons game.

Does anyone remember Virtual Springfield for the PC? Man, I spent SO many hours with that one back in the day.



DRL commented on Sonic Rushes Into Xbox 360 Deals With Gold:

Generations and both Sonic Racing games are DEFINITELY worth the time and money. In most cases I actually prefer Racing Transformed to Mario Kart. Don't tell anyone, though. :p



DRL commented on Poll: What's Your Most-Anticipated Game of Nov...:

I had to vote for MCC. Far Cry 4, GTA V, Advanced Warfare, Never Alone, and Geometry Wars are up there, but revisiting the Halo series is something I'm extra excited about. It's primarily because I can't wait to take the co-op route with the wife. :)



DRL commented on Discuss: Share Your Thoughts on the Evolve Big...:

I haven't even booted the Alpha yet, but I may give it a shot tonight. It seems as if opinions are very mixed right now. I've had a couple friends say that what they've played is absolutely awesome, while other's feedback could be summed up with a "meh." I imagine playing with a team that communicates and works together effectively would be what makes it an enjoyable experience. Unless you're just into destroying folks with the monster, I suppose. :p



DRL commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

@heyzeus002 I'm with you on Advanced Warfare! I always look forward to the campaigns. Multiplayer too, but it's the single-player that I get the most out of.

@Tasuki Yeah, I think it could depend on how it's marketed. Make it a highly competitive multiplayer game and it could be something big. Probably depends on what the shooter market is doing at the time of release, though. Have you played Head-On before? I've only played the PSP version, but I'm going to try and get me a copy of it for PS2 soon. That was a surprisingly good return to form if I remember correctly.



DRL commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

@Tasuki I would immediately purchase a PS4 if we learned that another Twisted Metal was on the cards. It's a favorite series of mine (I even like the lesser installments) and I hope Sony doesn't choose to neglect it now that David Jaffe has gone on to other things. I have a bad feeling we won't see it anytime soon, though. Car combat is probably a hard sell these days.



DRL commented on Volgarr the Viking Is Your Xbox One November G...:

@Emanouel Granted I only played Crimson Dragon for about an hour, I was immensely disappointed with everything up until that point. I'm hoping to give it another whirl soon though. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood for it previously. That can sometimes happen.



DRL commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

@EternalDragonX Man, that game... It drives me NUTS. I love the sprite-work, colors and animations, but getting Spunky through the stages is a big ol' pain in the butt. I should load it in the SNES this afternoon to see if I'm any better than I was years ago. Probably not but I'd say it's worth a try. :)



DRL commented on Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams to Get Xbox One ...:

I hope this game performs better than it did on the Wii U. It has a lot going for it, but I couldn't get past the stuttering frame rate to enjoy it. Never ended up finishing it because of that.



DRL commented on Review: Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One):

@EternalDragonX Personally, I find it hard to believe there's someone out there that couldn't find fun within this game. BUT, if you legitimately HATE Tony Hawk, Dead Rising, and Jet Set Radio, you probably won't like this. It feels like it was inspired by all three of those games.

As usual, thanks for the kind words, everyone! I'm glad to hear that so many people are attracted to this game. Insomniac definitely needs to get the go-ahead on a sequel, so let's hope it sells very well. :)



DRL commented on Deals With Gold: Jump Into A Titan And Get The...:

Guys, please keep the comment section free of hostility. Discussing each others opinions is absolutely cool, but we don't need anyone directly attacking anyone else or starting problems. Life's too short for that nonsense. ;)



DRL commented on Review: The Evil Within (Xbox One):

@WayneDavies89 It would be at the top of my Christmas list too if I wasn't such a baby. :p

But in all honesty, the more I hear about this game, the more I want to give it a chance. I'll probably buy in when the price drops a bit after the holidays.

Nice review, Anth. It did its job. :)



DRL commented on 343 Apologises for 20GB Halo Day One Patch:

What's more frustrating to people: the fact that they're giving up 20 GB of hard drive space, or knowing that they have to wait for a 20 GB download on top of the initial installation? Personally, it's the latter I find more annoying.



DRL commented on Roundup: The Legend of Korra Has Reviewers Ben...:

@odd69 Yeah, you're probably right. At that price point, it shouldn't hurt too bad if you end up not liking it. However, I know a few folks that are huge fans of Avatar and Korra, and they aren't very pleased with the game. I'd say to approach with your expectations low if you do give it a shot.



DRL commented on Pure Pool Still Being Cued Up for Xbox One:

I'm surprisingly curious about this one. Our buddies at Push Square gave the PS4 version a recommendation, and from what I've read, I think it's a game I could see myself booting up when I want to relax.



DRL commented on Volgarr The Viking Passes Xbox One Certificati...:

Has anyone played the PC version of Volgarr? I'd be interested to hear other's thoughts on the difficulty. I can handle a game with an extreme challenge as long as the deaths feel like they're my fault and not due to unfair circumstances or restrictive controls.

Either way, I'm excited to give this one a go.



DRL commented on Fox Delays Hitman Movie 'Agent 47' To Avoid Cr...:

This movie would need stellar reviews to be a major draw at the box office, and I just don't see that happening. Don't get me wrong, I'd be completely down for a great video game movie, but from what I've seen and read, this doesn't seem all that promising. Anyone think otherwise?
