hydeks commented on Poll: Do You Prefer Linear or Open World Games?:

I just play good games :-P I would say the games I play are probably more linear, but there is open world games that do it right and really get you into the game. Most the time, I like linear just cause I like being sorta led along as long as there is a great story.



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

I'll choose to ignore IGN and GameSpot again, I really don't like their reviews, and I usually find I like games they seem to hate. As a a fan of the show, I'll probably be downloading this, and it helps that I have really enjoyed Platinum Games games over the years.



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

my game time will also be limited by birthday celebrations this weekend, but when I'm not too busy I'll be playing...

Watch Dogs (X1) Finally started this game after almost 2 months of owning it, so far I'm enjoying it a lot!

Blood Omen 2 (Xbox) friend recommended to me to try the legacy of kain series, so I got this and despite it being one of the "worst" in the series, I am enjoying it alot!

LoZ: Twilight Princess (Wii) all this week I was playing alot of NES classics, which made me want to replay my fav Zelda game I've played to so far (haven't played Skyward Sword yet :-( ) This will tie me over till I receive the copy of Super Mario Galaxy 2 in the mail ;-)



hydeks commented on Pachter: Xbox One Outsold PlayStation 4 in Sep...:

I hope he's right, because I've played on both PS4 and X1 and I can't figure out why people like the PS4 at all!! The Xbox One deserves more sales, it's getting original and unique games, the online service is WAY better then PS4 and, sorry to say Sony fans, but that PS4 interface is a joke compared to X1.

@Gamer83 I use to really like PlayStation too but since the reveal of the PS4, I've noticed Sony basically seems full of themselves, and for no other good reason then that they came out at E3 and said the system would be cheaper. Now that the X1 is technically cheaper, why would you bother to even consider owning such a shitty made console?!? (my god I hate that DS4 controller, why didn't they add a actual touch screen instead of that! :-P)



hydeks commented on What's Out This Week: October 14th (North Amer...:

some great stuff (evil within, borderlands, killer instinct etc.) and some really stinky stuff (duck dynasty) are coming out this week, not a bad selection at all. I'll be looking into peoples reviews and reactions to The Evil Within, cause it seems like it will be a great game.



hydeks commented on Editor's Opinion: Our Resolution Resolution:

Yea, I never cared about game websites complaining about that stuff, I always thought it was the games that mattered. A lot of the time they like to pick on Xbox One for this and I feel like telling them "we get it, your bias and love the PS4, just shut up and review the games already" lol



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

I'll be playing the turkey eating game! (Thanksgiving long weekend in Canada, WAHOO!)

When not doing that, I'll be playing more classic original xbox games (Legacy of Kain Blood Omen 2, and Brute Force) and I might bring out the old SNES and play some Battletoads and Double Dragon and Battletoads in Battlemaniacs.

And, of course like normal, some Diablo III :-)



hydeks commented on Spencer: Backgrounds, Themes, Screenshot Suppo...:

@EternalDragonX I agree completely with you. I own a X1 and my sisters boyfriend owns a PS4 and other then the new controller, I see nothing really great about the system, especially for it to be $50 more then the X1 (in Canada X1 is $399 while PS4 is $450) And to be honest, I really don't like the PS4 controller, the joysticks are too small and stubby and that touch pad thing is incredibly cheap feeling. Hopefully games like Halo and Sunset Overdrive will convince people this Xmas to buy the X1 though.



hydeks commented on Styx: Master of Shadows Appears on Xbox One:

I've been interested in this game lately just because I've been seeing the little ads for it on this site lol It sparked my interest cause I had no idea what it was, but it looked pretty cool :-P



hydeks commented on Round Up: Alien: Isolation Face-Hugs Critics w...:

Yea, I'm gonna agree with the others here, I too hate IGN and think there reviews are crap :-P I'll listen to OXM and Destructoid on this one, it seems like a true Aliens game from everything I've heard and seen of it. It seems lately IGN only gives the huge games with huge buzz a good review, even if the game doesn't really deserve it (Destiny....)



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

Diablo 3 (Xbox One) been busy lately, so I plan to play a lot of this game this weekend

Doom 3 (Xbox) I never played this game before, and so far it's very fun ^-^

Soul Caliber 2 (Xbox) no clue why, but I've been playing this game a lot lately lol



hydeks commented on Microsoft Not Satisfied With Japanese Xbox One...:

Nintendo owns Japan, a American game company like Microsoft would never make sales over in Japan. Best to just focus on the west, the hell with Japan :-P It's hard to take a country serious when Nintendo's stuff is #1 there lol



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

Diablo 3 (Xbox One) I've been neglecting playing it lately, so I will be also trying to get all my characters up to lvl 70 to get the achievement.

Sonic Heroes (Xbox) got through the team sonic part, working on team dark and that now

Soul Calibur 2 (Xbox) man I love this game!!! ^-^ So happy I bought a used original xbox, just for this game alone lol



hydeks commented on Official: Microsoft Slashes UK Xbox One Price:

@kensredemption no, I think it's more of a "bring the price down cause it's too high and needs to compete with PS4 price range" kinda thing. 329,99 in pounds is almost $600 in CAD or $540 in USD, so they could have easily brought the price down, just to compete with the PS4.



hydeks commented on Microsoft Delays Xbox One Launch in China to "...:

I really doubt this is gonna hurt many peoples feelings over there :-P China has gone along time without any proper gaming consoles, a couple more months isn't asking much :-P Besides, I doubt the system will sell there at all.



hydeks commented on Review: Destiny (Xbox One):

great review, and your ALOT more honest then IGN and that where (IGN is a bunch of sell outs it feels...)

Personally, I still won't get it cause I find no value in buying a video game that is online only and will be useless in the future when the servers are down. Maybe if I pick this up in the future and it's on sale, I'll give it a go then, then I'll trade it in after before it becomes a useless disc.



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

Diablo 3 (Xbox One) lvling up my wizard, who is currently using a hamburger a a weapon oO (The Horadric Hamburger)

Watch Dogs (Xbox One) I'm loving this game so far and can't wait to play more!

Soul Caliber 2 (Original Xbox) I just recently purchased a used Original Xbox, and I got hooked on playing this game, again lol



hydeks commented on Rumour: Bioshock Infinite Getting Complete Edi...:

@EternalDragonX agree with you, with everything getting a "Game of the Year" edition less then a year later for a cheaper price and comes with all the dlc, why bother buying some of these games at the beginning anymore? I haven't played this game yet, basically because I knew it would eventually get a GOTY type edition :-P



hydeks commented on Amazon US Removes Kinect-free Xbox One From Sa...:

Probably a problem with their units because i bought a kinect-less xbox one a couple months ago when they first came out at GameStop and mine runs great and is VERY quiet (I sometimes forget to turn the system off how quiet it is lol)

Microsoft already said they would replace those consoles, so those people that bought it off Amazon can probably just get in contact with them and get a new one :-P



hydeks commented on Shadow Warrior Delayed On Xbox One:

@Anthinator I was about to ask the same thing lol

Looks cool and everything, but I need to see more of it. Might be a good budget game for $40, just have no idea about anything on this game yet :-P The screenshots sure do make me think this will be a game for me, though.



hydeks commented on As Microsoft Purchases Mojang, Original Minecr...:

Sounds like Minecraft became a bigger thing then he ever thought it would. Naturally people will say he's leaving cause he hates Microsoft or something, but it sounds like he just wants to make indie games, not games that are a huge hit, so Microsoft purchasing Mojang was probably a great move.



hydeks commented on Locked In: Microsoft Purchases Minecraft Devel...:

@Gamer83 ya, I know what you mean -_- And to the people that think Microsoft destroyed Rare, obviously you didn't play games like Donkey Kong 64 or Jet Force Gemini, or Star Fox Adventures :-P Basically without Nintendo babysitting Rare and telling them to use there characters, everything Rare has made was shit after the Battletoads, original DKC series, and GoldenEye :-P



hydeks commented on Xbox One Flops In Japan:

@Gamer83 very good point, they would need to appeal to the Japanese companies, too bad those same Japanese companies seem to basically abandon Japanese style games though for more American style games. It's hard to say what would get Japanese people to buy a console, especially since most games are trying to sell to the huge western market. I guess when you try to cater to one market, another market is gonna suffer huge :-P



hydeks commented on Talking Point: Tell Us About Your First Day Wi...:

@EternalDragonX actually, I agree with you, so don't feel too badly lol I think you just worded it in a bad way that would surely upset people :-P

@Gamer83 that could be a another big factor too, my friends don't have it and don't plan too because of the online only thing, that and I have no friends with a current gen (X1, PS4, and even Wii U) so Destiny would be a very dull experience for me. Halo on the other hand, it usually has couch co-op, and I usually don't have any troubles finding someone who wants to play Halo lol



hydeks commented on Talking Point: Tell Us About Your First Day Wi...:

well, I have to admit I was interested in the game, till I heard you have to be online all the time and there is no real true single player, so as hard as it might be, I'll pass on this game. I don't feel like having a game that will later become a useless piece of plastic :-P I'll gladly wait for Halo The Master Chief Collection and Halo 5 Guardians instead of picking this up, cause those games are guaranteed to have offline single player campaigns :-P



hydeks commented on Xbox One Flops In Japan:

The japanese aren't even going for the PS4, did we actually expect them to like the huge american Xbox One system??? I think gaming culture in Japan is basicly dead cause no one wants to make the cutesy Japan games, cause they don't sell anywhere else, probably why Nintendo is doing so well there right now, and PS Vita is doing not too bad there too. Microsoft is just wasting money releasing there system in some areas, Japan being one of them.
