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

Well not much gaming for me due to the Super Bowl this weekend. That being said I am in a football mood so I will be dusting off the ole Dreamcast for a few games of NFL 2K. In between that it will be CoD: Black Ops III, I am really enjoying the new maps especially Splash.

Tasuki commented on Don't Worry, Sony Has Been Prevented from Trad...:

@KelticDevil Right you are that's pretty much my stance now, the damage was already dealt. While I am glad, that MS was smart enough to reverse that policy (and give Mattrick the boot ) buy the time that happened I already spent alot on my PS4. Yeah I can trade it in, but I will lose a bunch of money since most of my game purchases were digital (big reason I hate digital games but that's another story for another day) and I got a year of PS+ to play online with a few friends so it made no sense for me to get an Xbox One just to rebuy all the games that I have now on PS4. However, if Scalebound lives up to the hype, I will probably end up with an Xbox One.

One thing I have learned though from MS gawf and Nintendo this gen is that it might not be a good idea to buy a game console on launch day.

@KelticDevil Lol true true. Heck I know both companies do it. I remember back in the PS2 era when GTA's were a timed exclusives on PS2. Or even with Soul Caliber II where each version had to have their own guest charcter.

I do agree with your I play what I want screw the masses mentality. Honestly I own the PS and Xbox systems for third party games. But both Sony and MS exclusives nevery sparked my interests to much. I can take or leave Halo, Gears, God of War, Uncharted. I do enjoy though GTA, FIFA NBA 2K and I am really enjoying Black Ops 3. In the end when it comes to me choosing PS or Xbox is price believe it or not. The main reason I went with PS4 now was because of Mattrick's screw ups. Always online, DRM, a 100 dollars more for a device I would never use. Sorry MS you lose.

I can honestly say if the roles were reversed I would have got a One instead of a 4. In fact that's why I went with an Xbox 360 last gen instead of a PS3.

@KelticDevil Oh yeah cause MS helped fiance Tomb Raider the way Sony did for Street Fighter V? I could care less about Tomb Raiders exclusiveness, I was just pointing out flaws by MS that's all.

I will say I do agree with ya about Don Mattrick. I think when MS and him parted ways it was on of the happiest days of my life.

@KelticDevil I love how you talk smack about me here but you don't have the nerve to do so over at Push Square. That's just fine.

I suppose that Microsoft's always online and DRM policies were great. Or the Kinect. How bout their deal with Square for Tomb Raider that did wonderful for them didn't it?

The trouble with people like you is that you are quick to judge Sony but when Microsoft does similar tactics you dismiss it as well.

@Utena-mobile Yeah I will agree with you although in the last 2 years NL has started to become one of those sites, it's not as bad as say IGN or Gamefaqs but if it the community keeps going the way it is it will be in a few years, which is one of the reason I don't frequent there as much as I use to.

Tasuki commented on Microsoft Refunds $8k of In-Game FIFA Purchase...:

@Utena-mobile I don't think it was a PR move. As you said the dad probably was looking at every legal option he could. And as I said even if he just lawyered up and in the end even if MS won the case it would have costed them alot more then $8000 to settle it in court. So it was just cheaper to shut him up. That's how alot of these settlement cases end up and people know it so they play the system. I wouldn't be surprised if according to the deal the kid had to give up his MS account and is banned from XBL forever.

Tasuki commented on Microsoft Refunds $8k of In-Game FIFA Purchase...:

@A_BabyRed_Yoshi Exactly the kid knew what he was doing how could a 17 year old not know that maybe if the kid was 5. And the credit card in question was a company card the father gave the son to help with the family business. So they kid knew what he was doing he just didn't expect to get caught and when he did he just acted stupid while the father is one of those "my kid is a perfect angel" parent. It was calculated that in order to rack up that high of a bill he had to okay the transactions 50 or more times.

I can't understand why MS paid the refund especially when the credit card comapny refused unless he pressed charges on his son. The only thing I can surmise is the dad lawyered up and it was cheaper for them to just refund the money rather then pay for a court battle.

Picked up a few new games a few days ago so I will be playing them

PS4

Dragon Age Inquisition --Needed something to fill the void of WoW and I think this just might do it.

Call of Duty Black Ops III — Not a big CoD fan but I did enjoy the Blops series and I am really enjoying this one. Hopefully I will be starting the campaign but I will be playing multiplayer with my son and the fellows from work.

Sega Genesis

Ghouls N Ghosts — Never played this version and only played the NES one a few times. Looking forward to the challenge.

Tasuki commented on New Platinum-Developed Teenage Mutant Ninja Tu...:

@KelticDevil Actually this news is about a month old. But yeah I get what your saying in fact I was talking to a co-worker today about Scalebound being delayed and he said the same thing you just said. With Scalebound, Neir, TMNT and I think there was another game there it seem that Platinum has bitten off more then it can chew. I just hope it doesn't hurt the quality of these games.

Well since we are coming upon Thanksgiving here in the States, there won't be much time for gaming for me this weekend since I have family coming in for the holiday. With that said I will at least try to play the following.

SNES — Secret of Mana — Going through this classic with my son before we tackle Secret of Mana 2.

PS4 — Call of Duty Black Ops III — I really tempted to pick this up since I have been getting pestered by my coworkers to get it for some multiplayer and Zombie madness. Plus hearing them go on and on about it has piqued my interest.

Tasuki commented on Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider (Xbox One):

@Gamer83 Not a problem at all. Honestly I am just tired of people complaining about a company making a deal with this developer and that one making a deal with this one in all honesty it's quite sad but that's the ugly side of business. I am at the point now that I just don't care anymore and if I miss a game cause some douche company wants to make deals so be it I got plenty of other stuff to play.

In honesty I like at times how outspoken you are and more often then not it cracks me up that's why I was like WHAT!? when I read your first comment. Again sorry if I seemed to come off rude about it.

Tasuki commented on Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider (Xbox One):

@KelticDevil You obviously don't read well do you. This has nothing to do with anyone being a fanboy, I didn't call him one nor did I imply he was one I was just confused by his comment.

And you talk about the community over at Push Square. Yeah you make the community look real inviting over here. You seriously need to knock that **** off.

Tasuki commented on Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider (Xbox One):

@Gamer83 Yeah I get it it's all cool. I probably just don't remember you saying is all since you probably only said it a once or so instead of over an over like you did about such dealings that's all. I know your not one do just by a console for a BS exclusive like that but then again what does it matter to me if you did. Honestly if I had an Xbox One I probably would have bought Tomb Raider as well but since I have a huge back log as it is I don't mind the year wait honestly.

I apologize if I came off rude didn't mean that at all as I said I was just confused, that's all.

Tasuki commented on Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider (Xbox One):

@KelticDevil I am not starting anything about Tomb Raider, I was just confused by Gamer83 that's all and I don't care if he doesn't wait a year to by a game. I was just saying that he said that he got it because he wanted didn't want to miss a game he wanted to play which didn't make sense since by owning an Xbox One you wouldn't have to miss anything since it will be coming to PS4.

Seriously man you need to stop taking everything I say as an attack on the Xbox community it's getting old. But you know I find I funny that you make these accusations over here instead of Push Square. Why don't you come over there and spew your ****? Probably cause you know what would happen so you hide here like a coward.

Tasuki commented on Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider (Xbox One):

@Gamer83 I honestly think people are just making a big deal out of it really. I honestly don't think it will hurt the franchise (it's been hurt for a long time) if anything it just creates more ammo for fanboys of MS and Sony to use against each other.

I just was confused that's all as I can remember time after time again you saying how this was a **** move by MS. But sadly you just proved their point that's all. That yeah even though it was a **** move it got you to buy the console and the game before Sony got it so in the end it accomplished what they hoped for and that it will work again in the future.

Tasuki commented on Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider (Xbox One):

@Gamer83 How are you going to miss a game that you want to play when it's coming to PS4 as well? I am just confused that's all. Not worried about how you spend your money, you just confuse me that's all.

As for SF V. I like how people (not just you) compare what MS did with Tomb Raider to what Sony is doing with SF V as the same thing.

Street Fighter V would have not been made otherwise, Rise of the Tomb Raider would have. And before you go on saying oh Capcom would have made Street Fighter V cause the fans demand it. Yeah Capcom is great for that, just like how the fans have been asking for a new Mega Man game, or physical releases of new Phoenix Wright games in NA. Yeah Capcom always listens to their fans.

Tasuki commented on Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider (Xbox One):

@Gamer83 Wow you were one of the most outspoken person on how this was a **** move by MS and you go and buy the game and season pass??? Great job showing them that you wont take their ****. I just don't understand you at times. You say one thing and then do another.

Well don't complain when MS does this again.
