Gamer83 commented on Reptile Returns In Mortal Kombat X:

I'm really liking the roster and pretty much everything about this game. It was always on my list but it's shot into my top 2 most anticipated for this year.

Gamer83 commented on Phil Spencer: Commited To Console:

I don't really think anything has changed here. Xbox and PC have always shared a lot of games and with things the way they are with cross-platform play, it makes sense that we'll be seeing more of this. Hell Sony is doing it too with SF V.

@JaxonH

I don't actually have a Kinect. I pretty much can't stand any kind of motion control and the voice stuff while cool, isn't $100 extra cool. I'm sure plenty of others here at PX can help you out though.

@JaxonH

I played a little Blue Storm but sadly couldn't really get into it. I honestly felt like outside of Resident Evil 0, REmake and 4, Eternal Darkness, Smash Bros. Melee and Metroid Prime 1, the Gamecube was a pretty big disappointment. Imo, Blue Storm, like Mario Sunshine, Zelda: The Wind Waker and Mario Kart Double Dash were all worse than their predecessors. GC was the biggest disappointment of all-time for me. But Wave Race 64, that game was the truth. Hydro Thunder Hurricane for the 360 is the only game I've felt really got halfway to matching WR 64, so I'm definitely intrigued by this Riptide game since it's from the same developers.

@DRL
Punch-Out Wii was pretty damn good. Another game that needs a 3DS or Wii U sequel.

@JaxonH

There will never be an equal, Wave Race was one of a kind for that style of racing game. 64 is still the best, I'd love a port to the 3DS like they did with Ocarina, Majora's Mask and Star Fox 64.

@DRL

Same for me, once I saw Hydro Thunder Hurricane mentioned I instantly became interested. Got $10 ready to go for either this or that ridiculously long-winded Dead Rising 3 DLC.

I thought I was going to have tomorrow off to enjoy this but unfortunately not. Oh well, still looking forward to signing on here tomorrow to see what was announced. I'm not counting on any blockbuster announcement but I'd love to be wrong on that.

Awesome. So I guess since this followed not too far after Dave's Pure Retro article that we can look forward to more of these? I hope so, I love reading about games I either played a long time ago or completely forgot existed, like this one.

Gamer83 commented on Dead Rising: Watchtower Will Premiere On Crack...:

It'll probably be bad, but my hope is that it's one of those 'so bad it's good' kind of deals. Kind of like the first live-action RE, it wasn't great by any stretch of the imagination but it was a pretty decent popcorn flick.

@Emanouel
It was months after your recommendation to me when I first got my Xbox but I finally got around to buying Dead Rising 3 and I'm loving it. Don't know what it is about this game but where as I thought 1 and 2 were decent at best, 3 is just crazy, up there in my top 5 favorite zombie games.

@Sir_JBizzle

Oddly enough, store integration is the one thing PS3 did better than PS4 does, imo. It does take a while to load on PS3 but it always loads up, on the 4 that blue screen that pops up, throws everything out of whack. I can still play games but 'what's new,' and other stuff takes about 5-15 minutes to load up. It doesn't happen all the time but often enough where it's a slight annoyance. It's surprising because one thing about the PS4 that's great is how quickly it zips along whether it's installing games or loading up apps. When the store works it's fantastic but sometimes it's an exercise in frustration.

Gamer83 commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Saw Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition on sale a few days ago and decided to buy it, glad I did because that game is awesome so I'll be playing mostly that and the AC Unity Dead Kings DLC. Can't wait for Tuesday when REmake 'remastered' comes out, have it pre-downloaded on my PS4 ready to go.

@DRL
I like the Xbox One UI better. Too much clutter on the PS4. I can deal with it, because frankly I think PS4's UI is a lot less of an annoyance than PS3's was, but the Xbox One is better in that category, it's also better in store integration. I cross my fingers EVERY time I click on the PS Store on PS4 because 50% of the time I get a blue screen and have to back out and wait for stuff to reset.

Gamer83 commented on Microsoft Announces $50 Xbox One Price Cut in US:

Given that MS isn't exactly desperate for funny and with the success it just had at $350 during the holiday, very smart move. Especially since for the first part of the year the big exclusives are on PS4. This should keep the positive momentum built up the last two months going.

It had the better games, price ad bundles, so not too surprising but for competition's sake, good news none the less.

@DRL
I don't know if I'd say I'm a PlayStation loyalist, but it has been my preferred brand for the last nearly two decades now. That said, just like the 360 was easily the much better console than PS3 from 06-08, the Xbox One is right now well ahead of PS4 in terms of library and also Xbox Live is still a much better, more functional service than PSN so those factors have me back on Xbox more often than PS4. That said, if The Order, Bloodborne and MLB The Show all deliver things may change. I'm not really confident in any of those games other than The Show but as an owner of the platform, hoping for the best for the other two.

Gamer83 commented on Forza Motorsport 6 Confirmed for Xbox One:

Nice. I haven't played the Motorsport series since 3 but maybe this one can pull me be back in. Also, if this is annoucned now, it makes me confident MS has a crap ton stuff for E3 because this isn't just some small game.

@stylon
She was my favorite character in the game, easily, some DLC going deeper into her past would've been nice, but I also thought Arno was a pretty cool character and, without spoiling anything, there was clearly some stuff in regards to him that wasn't cleared up, so hopefully the DLC does that, as well as wrapping up his story nicely. I highly doubt we'll see him returning in a future game so I'd like this DLC to give closure.

Gamer83 commented on Free Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings DLC Se...:

I bought the game after it was all patched up and actually ended up liking it quite a bit. Felt like a return in playstyle closer to AC 2. Definitely looking forward to this DLC, hopefully it adds a good 3 or 4 hours of story but it's free so can't complain if it's shorter.

Gamer83 commented on $350 US Xbox One Holiday Promotion Will Expire...:

I'm not sure how good The Order (looks like trash if I'm honest) and Bloodborne will be, but I do think going back up to $400 might be a bad idea. There's arguments that can be made either way though. Be interesting to see what happens and if Sony does start moving ahead again, how and how quickly will MS react?

Assassin's Creed Unity. It's a shame Ubi botched the launch so f'ing bad because now that's been patched, there actually is a pretty damn good game here. Glad I waited until I was able to get it dirt cheap though.

Gamer83 commented on Feature: Pure Xbox's Top 5 Most Wanted Games o...:

Halo is my favorite franchise and I really like Rocksteady's take on the Batman universe, but there's something about Remedy's games, and Quantum Break looks crazy, so I voted for that. Hopefully it actually is a 2015 release.

My top 5 most anticipated for 2015, based on what we know right now, is... 1. Quantum Break; 2. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End; 3. Halo 5: Guardians; 4. Batman: Arkham Knight; 5. Mortal Kombat X.

@stylon @Jairo_MC

Exactly, the names PortStation4 or IndieStation4 have been used for a reason, and I'm a PlayStation guy mostly but truth is the truth. I do like that Sony is helping to give these indie games more exposure, because some of them truly deserve the recognition, but the utter lack of newer, quality is hurting that machine and it annoys me when I see any development resources being put towards a re-release when they could be put towards a sequel or, even better, a new IP.

Gamer83 commented on Forza Horizon 2 Storm Island DLC Will Be Avail...:

@stylon

$10 since you're a VIP. Pretty sure the car pass is strictly that.

@JaxonH
I'd definitely recommend playing the game first and seeing what you think of the races, the handling, really the way the game plays in general. Some people love open world racing games, others would rather a regular track racer. If you like what it has to offer I think the $20 for this DLC will be worth it, at least from the looks of it. Forza Horizon 1 had something similar with a huge Rally Expansion that was well done.
