I never said I was a fan of always on but its not a deal-breaker for me. I knew it was coming sooner or later so I've chosen to deal with it. Otherwise, what? Boycott the system and miss out on some great games? No thanks.

If it's a Microsoft game, probably a fairly good chance they'll end up on PC eventually which is where I will then pick them up.

You know, I somehow suspect that most, if not all that Microsoft showed this year, will end up on another platform within a year of its release.

I want this to be the return of the Playstation 2 way, ya know?

Fuck the PS2 way. I don't need another console generation where its one system or the highway. There's no diversity generated from competition in such an environment.



Couldn't think of the pound's ascii code.


And the price point of $400 for the US, $350 for the UK plus confirmed backwards compatibility. Just to rub salt in XBone's wounds.

For the record this seems to just be Gaikai streaming, which isn't true BC though it's a consolation prize at least. And the lack of mention of PS1 or PS2 implies they'll just straight up emulate those on PS4, like I expected.

Whoops. My bad.

That's what I get when I try to keep up with a chat while watching a press conference.

Edit: What I meant was the lack of restriction on used games.

And a belated Sony summary:

16 minutes late. Typical.

Vita technobabble. Not much software support though.

Last of Us, Puppeteer, Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6, Batman Arkham City, etc.

Now they unveil the PS4. It looks like a tapedeck made love to the PS3 and birthed conjoined DVD players.

Multimedia crap.

The Order. A steampunk zombie 3rdPS thing. What's nice is that its not an overly designed thing like steampunk is want to be.

Killzone, Ridge Racer, Infamous, Knack. More stuff that's a thing.

Dark Sorcerer. Not even really a thing.

Transistor and a bunch of other indie games. Sticking their indie support to MS and their Xbone.

FFXIII Versus is now FFXV, still part of Fabula nova Crystalis, but the trailer was mostly new and looked stunning.

KH3. Squeenix has finally pulled the trigger.

FFXIV will also be on PS4.

Ass Creed Black Dogs. Yet again.

Watch Dogs. Yet again.

NBA 2K14. More sports.

Elder Scrolls Online. MMO.

Mad Max. Not much but I guess more MM never hurts.

Destiny. Aka Halo with Coop, skill levels, and loot.

And the price point of $400 for the US, $350 for the UK plus confirmed backwards compatibility. Just to rub salt in XBone's wounds.

Oh, okay... shoot me! Friggin' geeks. lol All I know is what I'm seeing from games SO FAR is the X box One games look better. By far. I know jaggies have to do with anti-aliasing or whatever it's called, but the PS3 games look jaggy as hell.

Better than what? Almost nothing shown was Xbox One exclusive. It's all either PS4 or PC as well. And Sony hasn't even started their presentation.

You're comparing apples to... invisible apples? No shit the apples look better. You can see them.

Did you see the reveal in February for PS4? MANY journalists in attendance said the games lacked visual flair. Adam Sessler recommended heavily on it. The Killzone footage I saw didn't wow me, neither did the other PS4 footage I've seen so far. Most recently today when they showed the new Castlevania running on PS4. Looked nothing next-gen like. I hope I'm wrong, because I plan on getting both.

You know, you could wait two and a half hours and then complain about the PS4's graphical fidelity not being bloody edged enough.

Of course the XBone games are going to look better than PS3 games. You're comparing a system running on, at least, 6 year old tech versus a system that hasn't even launched yet.

And that's assuming that said PS3 jaggies aren't being caused by a crappy TV on your end.

Ubisoft:

Rocksmith 2014 Edition. And Aisha's sporting more Girlwood.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Still a part of the 4th echelon.

Rayman Legend. Again.

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot. Amusing trailer for a game that looks to be along the lines of Temco's Deception series except you get to play through other people's traps.

South Park: The Stick of Truth. The Nagasaki Fart. More of the same.

The Crew. Cruisin' GTA.

Watch Dogs. Still looks promising.

Just Dance 2014. Just more of the same.

Rabbids Invasion. And now a TV show in which people can make a spectacle of themselves.

Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag. Moar of the Assassin's of the Caribbean.

Trials Fusion/Frontier. Excitebike for everybody but Nintendo.

The Division. And here's the new title.

A lot of supposed open world games this year, I wonder how many of them will live up to their promises. Definitely more entertaining than MS's and EA's conferences, but nothing new aside from The Division.
3952  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2013 on: June 10, 2013, 04:59:54 PM
EA:

Plants v. Zombies: Garden Warfare. XBone then 360. Team Plantress 2 but without the PvP.

Titanfall: Still Halo with giant robots.

Game Dev Engines and so on...blah blah blah.

Star Wars Battlefront announce. Battle on Hoth yet again.

Need for Speed (and) Rivals (and a movie for Spring 2014).

Dragon Age Inquisition: Somebody broke the universe again, goddamn Bloodmages.

EA Sports. NBA Live14, MaddenNFL25, Fifa14, and UFC....blah blah blah.

Battlefield 4 again. Working this time. Leveloution. And there's the 64 players.

Mirror's Edge 2. They brought the Faith back.

Everything's for XBone, 360, and PS4. No WiiU in sight.
3953  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: XBOX: A New Generation Revealed, May 21st on: June 10, 2013, 02:59:30 PM
So. $500.

Depending on Sony's price I think they may well be done in by that alone.

The PS3 came out at the same price and that didn't stop them. But the fact that they really didn't go into any of the accusations levied at the XBone doesn't inspire a lot of faith.
3954  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2013 on: June 10, 2013, 02:57:38 PM
D4. Okay this one looks promising. Best game of the MS show.

For an exclusive title, yeah. This one looks interesting.

But... this is from the "D" series? The one that started on 3DO?

Probably more inline with Deadly Premonition than the D series that Kenji Ito started. Especially with the episodic murder mystery format and the fact that Swery65 is behind it.

But if it is supposed to be tied to D then let me quote a post I made before this in the E3 predictions thread.

Quote
And 3 more for the road.

1) The Nivida Shield will flop because it wants to turn highly mobile smartphones into massive, bulky, cumbersome handhelds and does nothing else.
2) The Ouya will have a demonstration in a pushcart across the street from the E3 pavilion. The Ouya 2 will also be announced.
3) Kenji Ito will rise from his grave to present D3. It will be set in purgatory.

The number is wrong but I may yet have called it (zombie game producers not withstanding).
3955  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2013 on: June 10, 2013, 02:19:32 PM
XBone:

Launches in November $499.

5 minute delay.

MGSV. Snake's riding on a horse with no name, sporting a sudo ponytail. On XBone. Ocelot confirmed.

360 redesign mk2. 2 free games for gold mems only.

Girls und Panzer the MMO World of Tanks for 360.

Max the Curse of Brotherhood and Dark Souls 2 also for 360.

Ryse: Call of Duty: Romandy Invasion. Press Y to stomp a dude. Press LT to call your army over to run a ballista.

Killer Instinct. No B. Orchid.

Sunset Overdrive. Serious Sam meets Zombies Ate My Neighbor. An FPS.

Forza Motorsport 5. Drivatar, it remembers when you accidentally had the sucker in reverse.

Minecraft. Continues to be everywhere.

Quantum Break. Maybe it'll suck less than that one Syfy show/game tie-in. No gameplay.

D4. Okay this one looks promising. Best game of the MS show.

Project Spark. Make your own game for dummies.

Smart glass bullshit. KI curbstomp, recorded for posterity, get useless comments from Twitch.

MS Points now money, share gold profile.

Crimson Dragon. Like Panzer Dragoon but without the sound.

Dead Rising 3 Sledgesaws.

The Witcher 3 free roaming and banging mermaids.

Battlefield 4. And there's the technical difficulties. Also an FPS.

Below. Looks cool beans if a bit too zoomed out.

Some not GitS tech demo, and a Halo at 60FPSes and with Giant Robots.

Titanfall. Halo with Giant Robots. Also an FPS.

And MS is done. They brought the games/trailers but with a $500 bones price tag and Smartglass all over the place, still not winning this thing.
3956  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2013 on: June 10, 2013, 12:29:47 PM
It begins.

With this and Rare's new Kinect Wii Sports Rivalz.
3957  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 10, 2013, 11:30:52 AM
I started up a new game of FFXII today and just made it back into Rabanastre after running that long ass dungeon after getting Basch. I never did finish this game but I'm going to try to stick with it this time. I forgot how stingy this game is with Gil:(

This was one of the more annoying aspects of the game since you can't even compensate with treasure found in chests since they almost all suck or base their payout on random chance, but there's an accessory that can improve the contents of chests, except for the good ones which will screw you over 100% of the time while said accessory is equipped, and the game doesn't tell you which are which, and that's if they even spawn to begin with otherwise you'll have to march back out of whatever 100 floor dungeon you were crawling from, hit a save point, and then save and reload and hope for the best next time.

And then there are enemy drops.....:ugh:

Also you have the Bazaar. You just need to find a chart that tells you what ingredients are needed for which item you want and which ones are trying to get you to sink your super rare material that one boss drops early on and the next piece is a super rare drop from a stupidly powerful enemy that only rarely spawns in the middle of nowhere and will wreck your shit even at endgame levels.

At least you have marks. Pretty much your only source of character advancement beyond the license board and levels.

I doubt even S-E knows what they're doing with the FNC series.  They wanted to make three games with a common mythos, fine, but one of them was already renamed (yet retained the mythos) and the other got a bunch of previously unplanned sequels.  It's a mess.

Anyway, my point is that the mythos has nothing to do with the number 13.  S-E can call Versus whatever they want.

And this is precisely why Squeenix should never be trusted with Compilations.

Besides, Squeenix proved how loathed they can be to discard pre-rendered cutscenes when they inserted that goofy ass scene at the end of the Casino Night Zone in FFXIII-1 let alone even having "Set Color Code to Blackwatch Plaid!" Jhil Naboopalin (or whatever) around given that I just described the sum total of her contributions to the events of the game in this very sentence before getting disposed of like a Red Shirt on Star Trek. And then there's Fang's gender getting stuck in Female because somebody did up a pre-rendered cutscene before Squeenix realized they could ignore Lightning's agency in the story to turn Fang/Vanille into the stealth main couple ala Vaan and Penelo in FFXII (and this is also the reason why there are cutscenes on Namek Australia Pulse).

Type-0 got away with the conversion because there was hardly anything there to begin with (and the cellphone idea was ludicrously unrealistic to begin with).

But despite all the jokes to the contrary, there have been pre-rendered stuff put on the table over the years (including ties to FFXIII-1). Its just a matter of how awkwardly they're going to shoehorn those scenes into the final game, XVersus or not.
3960  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: SQUARE ENIX Presents, Live Broadcast E3 Showcase on: June 09, 2013, 10:14:34 PM
Knowing Squeenix though, they're going to try to preserve as much prebuild material as possible. So expect Falcie/Lcie nonsense, Etro bullshit, and that picture of Lightning in that art gallery regardless of the game becoming XVersus or not.
