Gamer83 commented on Review: Mortal Kombat X (Xbox One):

Great review @DRL. I've had a lot of fun playing the game, it's lived up to my expectations. It hasn't had the same impact that 9 did, but I also think part of that is due to the fact that, in 2011, MK 9 was the best game in the series in a long, long time. MK X had a lot to live up to and mostly does. Some things disappoint me though. My favorite character after Scorpion and Sub-Zero was Jade and while they gave Kitana a Jade 'variation' it's not really the same. And tag was one of my favorite modes so that not being there is also discouraging. In the end though, it's easy to not be overly bothered by that stuff because what's there is so well done. Even the cheesy story was enjoyable, imo.

Good news. Really hope we get to see some Crackdown as it's return is one of the main reasons I bought an X1. A little disappointed there hasn't been any news since the reveal trailer but this year's E3 is as good a time as any to change that.

Sony has to be happy with the showing by both its big exclusives for the month. I'm a little disappointed Resident Evil Revelations 2 didn't chart as it is a great game and probably the best in the series since the classics.

@EternalDragonX

100% agree. It's pathetic how far the TMNT games have fallen. Most disappointingly? Not even Way Forward could get it right. Their TMNT game was a complete disaster. A shame because in the 8 and 16 bit days the TMNT games for the most part were pretty damn awesome. I loved The Arcade game, Manhattan Project, Turtles in Time and The Hyperstone Heist.

@DRL

It's not too entertaining. Just mostly about how some of the Batman games I've played are very lame. I do have one experience I'll share when the time comes that I'm not sure many others will have had. It involved a very obscure gaming device.

Gamer83 commented on Feature: Remembering When Mortal Kombat First ...:

This was the first game that really had me reading game magazines. I was always interested in industry trends and the like but it wasn't until I saw this game in the pages of GamePro that I started scouring every magazine (sidenote: I miss going to the newstand and seeing the magazine shelve stacked with 8-10 about video games). Much like I'm sure every other kid who was in grade school at the time, this is all my friends and I talked about and when it finally came out, well, lets just say production took a bit of a hit. I don't think myself or any of my friends would want to count the hours put into this on the Genesis over the weekends but it was great fun with a group of people. Hell even some of our parents joined in the fun with us. Even when the series hit a bit of a lull after MK II, I always had fond memories of the series. It was great to see it brought back to the forefront with a great entry in 2011 and I can't wait to play X tonight. Hopefully online will be decent this time around. If I have one complaint about MK 9 and Injustice it's that the online experience wasn't exactly great. Got a bunch of friends from back in the day who all want to play online as well so hopefully this time it will be better.

Gamer83 commented on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Confirmed for Xbox One:

I was concerned about the future of Deus Ex after they went ios but it's good to see that SquareEnix saw enough value to give Eidos Montreal a chance at another real entry in the franchise. Human Revolution was awesome so my expectations are high for this.

I have no problem with a company charging for DLC especially if it's well done and reasonably priced as this seems to be. But when you go around thumping your chest and acting like you're better than everybody, which is exactly what CDPR was doing, it's massively disappointing to see in the end, the studio isn't really much better than any of EA's partners.

I think I paid a little over $100 for Forza Horizon 2, the car pass and the VIP pass back in September and it was worth every cent. I'd highly recommend that game to anybody who still hasn't bought it. Any sale is a steal for that game.

Gamer83 commented on Quantum Break Officially Delayed:

My two most anticipated games were pushed into 2016. I can't say I'm overly disappointed about this one, partly because I expected it. The Uncharted 4 delay pisses me off because it's entirely unneccessary and being used as an opportunity to sell more re-mastered crap. At least that isn't the case with this game.

Gamer83 commented on Halo 5: Guardians Release Date Confirmed:

@DRL

I liked Halo 4 too, but the reaction to it was definitely mixed. I think part of the problem was people still hadn't fully accepted it wasn't in the hands of Bungie anymore. Now that people are well past that I think Halo 5 will succeed or fail on its own. Hopefully 343 delivers. Now that Uncharted 4 and Zelda U are out of 2015 and it's still up in the air as to when Batman: Arkham Knight and Quantum Break will show up (my E3 prediction is Batman: Arkham Knight is pushed to March 2016), Halo 5 has shot itself to the top of my most-anticipated list next to MGS V: The Phantom Pain.

Gamer83 commented on Weekly Wrap: Delayed Edition:

@DRL

LOL, unfortunately there's really no way to convey sarcasm over the internet but my MK X comment was definitely only half serious. But, given WB's track record I wouldn't be shocked. At the same time, I imagine the company wants to get something big out in the April to June period and MK is definitely going to be big. It's probably the most relevant fighting game in today's market.

Gamer83 commented on Halo 5: Guardians Release Date Confirmed:

@Souldin

I wouldn't draw comparisons to Sony and Nintendo and worry about Halo because of that. The original Uncharted team was idiotically gutted probably because of corporate bs and Naughty Dog ridculously wasted time 'remastering' an at the time not even year-old game so the Uncharted 4 delay isn't a surprise unfortunately. Nintendo always delays the Zelda games. I'm a little worried about Halo 5 only because of 343's spotty track record but it has been 3 years since the last mainline Halo game, which is a long time, especially for a popular FPS frachise which companies seem determined to force out yearly entries of these days. Also, MS knows this game has to be good because for all its critical acclaim, the fanbase didn't love Halo 4 and what happened with MCC had people (rightly) p*ssed off. I don't think MS would be giving us an October 2015 release date if it wasn't confident 343 could hit that and deliver a high quality product.

Gamer83 commented on Weekly Wrap: Delayed Edition:

I'm almost positive Batman: Arkham Knight is going to get one more delay. And WB has really done a great job killing my anticipation for that game, just like with The Witcher 3. Stop giving freaking release dates if you can't hit any of them. I'm still half expecting MK X to get a delay sometime this week.

@Utena-mobile @hydeks

I'd say Xbox One is a bit of a slow period right now (mainly because I buy multiplats for PS4) but later this year kicks up again. Still there have been some good games. DmC Definitive was a great remaster, Resident Evil Revelations 2 is the best RE game since 4, the Borderlands Collection gives you a game we were all begging for on these new consoles (Presequel) as well as Borderlands 2 and all the content for both games. Then Mortal Kombat X and The Witcher 3 not too far from now.

I don't know. I wouldn't label Xbox One boring, it's just the big exclusives aren't hitting right now but MS always saves those for the fall.

Gamer83 commented on Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode...:

I got the bad ending on my first playthrough and my reaction literally was 'WTF?!' Fortunately I liked the game enough up to that point that I didn't mind having to replay it a bit to get the good ending and it definitely was well done. Actually sets up a few different directions Capcom can go whether it's through RE 7 or a possible Revelations 3.

Gamer83 commented on Round Up: Borderlands: The Handsome Collection...:

Not my first Borderlands game but will be my first time playing Presequel, when I eventually get this. Just bought DmC and RE Revelations 2 over the last couple weeks and saving up for MK X so probably can't work this in. Lots of content for the $ in this package though, credit to the developers. Definitely not a cheap cash-in. Remasters like this and DmC make the minimal work going into the recently announced God of War 3 Remastered look really, really bad.

Gamer83 commented on Batman: Arkham Knight Delayed Again:

A delay is a guarantee of nothing though. DriveClub was pushed back 11 months and still a broken mess on launch. The Order 1886 delay didn't save it from being a mediocre release. Sony announced Bloodborne at E3 and From Software got it out on time and surprise, it's f'ing awesome. And this comes just one year after the also awesome Dark Souls 2. A good studio, like Rocksteady, can hit its deadlines and deliver a great game that functions on launch. We know Arkham 'remasters' are on the way so I'm sure this most recent delay, which won't be the last, is simply so these corporate scumbags can sell their remastered bullcrap and I'm getting really sick of people defending it and saying delays are good. Delays are not good, especially when its for remasters of previous gen games. It's a massive problem when 3/4 of the new consoles' libraries are made up of previous gen games. When does the nonsense stop and when do we as gamers stop defending this crap and buying into bs excuses?

@Utena-mobile

It was an exciting week with some of the releases but that Kojima news put a little bit of a dark cloud over everything. I guess we'll have to see it play out, maybe it will be a good thing for Kojima to be free of the corporate shackles but as a long time fan of MGS and Kojima's work and considering that Konami was once an outstanding company it's a just a shame to see it all end like this. Unfortunately last gen and the start of this one haven't been kind to a lot of former great companies.

Gamer83 commented on Batman: Arkham Knight Delayed Again:

Consider any excitement I had for this game gone. Same situation as The Witcher 3. I don't know if it's incompetent, lazy developers or scumbags in suits at WB forcing the delays to avoid certain games or push remasters, and I really don't care what the reason is. The best PS4 and Xbox One games are from their previous gen counterparts and the games that seem interesting keep getting delayed it is beyond a joke at this point. And WB has been one of the worst offenders. I predict by the end of this month MK X is pushed to September but we'll get MK 2011 'remastered' to make up for it. Can't wait.

Raid mode in Resident Evil: Revelations 2 (PS4) as well as giving the extra episodes a try. Like this game a lot more than I was expecting based on some of the stuff I was reading about like changing characters on the fly, which wasn't that bad.

Just in case anyone is wondering the raid mode bonuses are the throwback map, some costumes and playable Wesker and Hunk. Pretty decent but the season pass nets a lot of the same stuff maybe minus Wesker for Raid Mode. However, you save $15 so unless you're like me and absolutely have to have a physical copy, digital might be the better deal.

Gamer83 commented on Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode...:

Got the retail copy last night and have played all the way through Claire and Moira's scenario in Episode 3. I like the character switching mechanic much more than I thought I would and the game itself is just very good. Like Revelations 1 it's got that nice mix of old and new.

So far, I've felt each episode gets better eventhough I'm only halfway through Ep. 3. If it holds up until the end, and through the side episodes I think I'll be more looking forward to RE Revelations 3 than RE 7. This is one of the few times I think a sub-series has actually moved ahead of a mainline series. Mostly because Revelations 1 and especially 2 actually feel true to Resident Evil's roots. At least much more so than 5 and 6, and even 4 to some degree.

@Jairo_MC

I think Remasters are cool if it's for the right game. Ones like TLoU and GTA V didn't really need them as both games sold well (ridiculously so in GTA V's case) and were released just a year before the update. Uncharted which is the latest rumor, certainly does not need an update. But DmC didn't sell great, and Revengeance seemed to go under the radar too. So these games getting a second chance on very popular new consoles hurting for good action games makes sense. I'm hoping Revengeance is next on the list since 'remasters' seem to be a big thing.

@DRL
Yeah, very awesome. I loved Heavenly Sword and thought Enslaved was a pretty decent game as well so given Ninja Theory's track record and the fact I liked the older DMC games I went in with fairly high expectations and this game met them. Finished the main story and that will get at least another 2 playthroughs for sure once I finish Vergil's Downfall, which is also a pretty cool expansion.

@Jairo_MC
I never played the last gen version but one of my friends who really liked it on PS3 said the upgrade with some of the re-tuned gameplay and 60 fps makes it even better. I'm not always the best at picking up on the frames per second stuff but it did make a difference in Tomb Raider and The Last of Us and those are both very deliberately paced games. I can only imagine what a world of difference (in a good way) that bump up makes for this kind of game.

@JaxonH
One other name I'd throw out there is Metal Gear Rising Revengeance. I never played it as I was saving for PS4 and a few PS3/360 games that were higher on my list, but I heard only great things about it. Platinum games made it and I'm holding out hope for a sequel. Konami has to put all marketing muscle behind MGS V Phantom Pain first (can't wait for that game btw) but once that's released, I could see MGR getting some more love. Didn't light sales charts on fire so that's a downer but it was received very well by people who played it.

DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition (PS4) - I love this game. A good hack n' slash that both the PS4 and Xbox One were in desperate need of. Highly recommend it to, especially to anybody like me who skipped over it two years ago. Here's a chance to right that wrong and maybe if sales are good enough, get a sequel green lit. This game desesrves one.

Gamer83 commented on Review: DmC: Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition...:

Nice. An 8 at PushSquare and a 9 here, both from reviewers who have never steered me in the wrong direction. DMC 1 and 3 were two of my favorite PS2 games and the little I played of 4 I loved. Never got around to buying this on last-gen but getting it for PS4 today, absolutely can't wait. Sounds like it's just a great action game, a genre I feel is underappreciated these days.

Gamer83 commented on Rumour: Quantum Break Likely Delayed to 2016:

I'll be disappointed if it's a 2016 game rather than 2015 but to echo other sentiments, a finished game is better than a broken game. And it's not like Xbox One has nothing. Forza 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Halo 5 is still a pretty damn good fall lineup. Actually, imo that's probably the best lineup of exclusives announced for the fall. I think Zelda U will be the best game, but it's just one game compared to three great ones across different genres.

Good timing. Maxed out probably on how well it will sell alone but there's still plenty of time before Halo 5 that this bundle won't go overlooked. Still has enough popularity to move some systems. MS has done a good job with the bundles.

Gamer83 commented on Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode...:

I've watched enough videos and I'm really not liking the direction this is going. The majority who played Revelations 1 loved the more old school feel and it was much better received by fans than RE 5 and 6. So what's the common sense thing to do? Of course given the idiotic 'everything must be mulitplayer' mentality today, lets bring back the co-op that nobody liked in 5 and the action that nobody gave a damn about from 6 only in a really sh*tty looking package from a graphical perspective. What a stupid, hopeless company Capcom has become. If SF V wasn't funded by Sony I'd have no hope for it. The same goes for any game from here on out that Capcom publishes without help from one of the big 3. There's a reason Dead Rising 3 was the best in the series and it's not because Capcom made that game all on its own. The real shame of this all is that Claire Redfield is my favorite RE character and I was awating her return.

The one positive for it I will say is, if everything goes smoothly, is the weekly releae schedule. I love Telltale's games but they spread their episodes way too far apart.
