Kevin Feige rejects Marvel criticism over Edgar Wright exit -- The Guardian

"Ahead of the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel president says new director Peyton Reed will deliver 'absolute best version' of Ant-Man and that superhero production house is not 'big evil studio' opposed to creativity."

I recommend reading the entire article before going bananas.

I've done it. I've beaten Dark Souls.
It's an experience alright.

Part of me is glad that it's over as I've had a lot of frustrating moments going through it.
Another part of me is sad that it's over though as the game, overall, is very fun and rewarding.

Most of the game omitted certain little things is very fair. most of my deaths were my fault and had I played better, I would have lived.
It also does a great job teaching you things that they expect you to apply.

(I think I played the game much slower than most as my final save is at 92 hours - I did do everything though)

You did everything on one playthrough? Seeing and doing everything that there is to do in the Souls series takes around 2 or 3 playthroughs usually per game. And that's when you know what you're doing and also know the environment around you.

Still, as a fan that has put (for normal people's standards) way too much time into the series, I'm glad over time more and more people here has give at least Dark Souls a chance.

^With the engine being reworked for this project I dunno if there's gonna be a significant difference from going to Rage and Wolfenstein: TNO to The Evil Within on PC. About the framerate, Tango has planned TEW to run at 30fps.

A couple of the previews for TEW trashed the game for feeling "old," while many gamers my age have been begging for a new Resident Evil style horror experience now that Capcom has gone off the deep end.  I think TEW will resonate more with older gamers who grew up with the first batch of horror games than those brought up in the wake of Slender.

The wake of Slender uh...

Well you know, a few years ago I read about a game made by Deep Space back in 2003 for PS2 called 'Hungry Ghost'. Along with System Shock 2 these are the only two games of its kind that (I think) have been good for the genre with the rest that came later merely having a few good aspects at best.

I'm giving Alien: Isolation the benefit of the doubt for now since I've heard nothing but good things from it.

Also about RE and Capcom, you might be interested in reading this quote from an Interview done last year to the producer of Resident Evil Revelations:

REVIL: How the success and sales of Resident Evil Revelations on home consoles can influence the future of Resident Evil?

Masachika Kawata: Let's just say that it may already be having all kinds of influence on the future of the series even before we get to that point! (laughs)

^I'm not a fan of First-person horror for how shallow it's approach to horror usually is. That, and I don't like the removal of combat at all.

And comparing Alien: Isolation with TEW is a bit weird because both are going for completely different things as far as I've seen. And if anything, TEW is more of a risk nowadays than Alien: Isolation for being in a sub-genre that has been trending for a few years now.

^That was 10 years ago now.

Justin has won good places in 3rd Strike tournaments in the past, and I didn't notice this before for whatever reason but he also did really good in Super Street Fighter IV tournaments. He has always been one of the most notable Marvel players for me though.

About Daigo I've noticed over the years that the way he plays Street Fighter is like a machine. Is really boring once you know part of the way he plays after seeing hours of his matches in the Street Fighter series, but the guy is undeniably good and has been able to do some amazing moves.

However, from the players that make a name for themselves with 3rd Strike I've seen much more amazing matches from other Japanese players. Some of the things people over there did with Q, Urien, Ibuki, Makoto and Yun Lee were insane and end up getting me interested in the fighting game scene much more.

*deep sigh* I knew this was gonna happen...

Alright I'll make this short; PewDiePie is gonna play The Evil Within on his channel like an idiot, because marketing.

Also the artbook of TEW looks like it comes out October 14, while TEW itself comes out October 21 (in America later following other territories).

I mention this because an artbook with 184 pages usually has like, lots of spoilers.

EDIT: New release date is now the same day as the official artbook.

My opinion of The Last of Us is what it is because I've played the game 6 or 7 times.

I haven't touched my PS3 in a while now, but I could do two more playthroughs with the 'Grounded' mode that was released as DLC for PS3. I don't know if I'm ever gonna do that because this game is tiresome and by the end of it I don't want anything from the game anymore.

And FYI, this what the Grounded mode does to the game if anyone still doesn't know yet:

11  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Naughty Dog's The Last of Us on: July 16, 2014, 11:46:11 PM
@Taelus: '_')d Sure. No hard feelings.

But you realize that most of what The Last of Us did as a game was made better for other games that came around before in the mid and late 2000s, right?

I was probably one of the harsher critics of TLOU when it came out, but I've got to admit that it's really grown on me over the past year.  There's a lot of subtlety and nuance to the combat and stealth than I initially gave it credit for.  It doesn't always work (and I still maintain that the beginning areas of the game are awful compared to how much it opens up in terms of tactics and player agency), but it's very different from everything else out there.  Combat feels nasty, mean, and rarely leaves you unscathed.  I really like those aspects of the game and it totally sells the atmosphere.

Yeah, that was one of the aspects I did liked about the game. The combat had what I call "friction"; The damage you did and received had some kind of weight to it along with feeling nasty, or I guess is visceral the word I'm trying to use here.
12  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Naughty Dog's The Last of Us on: July 16, 2014, 10:45:55 PM
Combat-wise I found it nothing special or unique.  Just the narrative and atmosphere totallly sold me.

I don't know why you feel the need to point that out.

Virtually everyone knows that The Last of Us was a decent dramatic TV series instead of a video game. Most of the stuff it tried to do as a game ended up falling short. It worked for what they wanted to present, but the final product is not this cohesive experience between game and narrative. The narrative is good enough to keep pulling your pants to see how is gonna end, but to do that you have to play a game that more often than not doesn't do anything remarkable, and that's without mentioning how the ending can either make or break the entire experience depending of the expectations the player.

Like I said before, buried within The Last of Us there was a better game and even a better story, but that didn't happen. But it doesn't matter because most people liked the final product, so... whatever I guess. *shrug*
13  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Naughty Dog's The Last of Us on: July 16, 2014, 05:16:34 PM
I can't get behind the whole deal of The Last of Us being "fantastic and perfect" because in all of my playthroughs I kept seeing a better game than the one I was playing.

I've talked about my perspective of the The Last of Us before in this forum, so I'm not gonna repeat myself again.

I see it as a mixed bag, too.

A mixed bag of the greatest PS3 games ever.

smh.

Sony releases official screenshots of The Last of Us Remastered -- All Games Beta

"The Last of Us Remastered details from leaked presentation slides; 30fps toggle, additional DLC planned." -- AGB, Twitter

Most of this is all nice for those who missed the train, but as one of few that sees The Last of Us as a mixed bag I think I'll pass from this version for now.
