The Evil Within: The Consequence:

Long story short, the story goes all sci-fi and I think somewhat paranormal with this DLC. Much of the logic behind what happens with the characters makes as much sense as the unreliable science behind the viruses in Resident Evil, and that's if there is any at all despite what some hardcore fans might say.

The story may or may not continue, but either way they shouldn't really keep going since is gonna get way too overblown for its own good and really, the chapters with Kidman are more of a extended what if scenario than anything else. Also, there are more scares than fun are to be had with Kidman's DLC given how gruesome and cold the entire affair is.

So, it looks like I was right to assume that MGSV: TPP has been done for who knows how long and all the extra time was to take care of aspects of MGO more so than TPP.

Also, regarding MGSV's promotion, this whole thing with teasing announcements and showing stuff early really ruins everything. It doesn't help either that Ground Zeroes, while good in its own right, is as overbearing as it is. I'm not kidding when I say that GZ throws away any goodwill Peace Walker managed to build by being just as good and self-aware as MGS3.

So basically cellphones are horrible for gaming on and they're only the future of games because they're ubiquitous and you can put a bunch of low-effort shovelware on there and still have it sell when it wouldn't on other platforms.

Is not for nothing that mobile gaming is also known as 'a casino in your pocket'. And the future Konami mentions is part of the 'mobile bubble' that in itself is not exactly new to say the least.

Also, the priorities of some sections of this industry of chasing a future instead of building one with mobile and VR is all kinds of twisted IMO. The whole thing is very bothersome as well as tiresome when you notice how all of this is a continuation of older ideas, concepts and experiences being treated as new mostly for the advancements technology does. That said, I would like to know how you guys feel about all of this.

"All those years telling people that this kind of game was wanted and being told that I was wrong ...... fuck'em all!" -- Grant Kirkhope, Twitter

Would anyone even want the game to happen if it was missing Del Toro and Kojima?

Silent Hills wasn't gonna happen without them anyway.

"Super bummed about this, was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll come back around. Sorry everyone." -- Norman Reedus, Twitter

"It's important to note del Toro was speaking only on collaborating with Kojima, not whether or not the game has been cancelled. "You'll have to go after Konami for those answers," our source said." -- IGN

Man, its gotta suck being a Silent Hill (or a Konami) fan at this point.

I am one (Silent Hill fan I mean), and I'm gonna tell you that it doesn't matter. And it doesn't matter because Team Silent close that book with SH4: The Room as nicely as they could have done back in the day. Really only SH: The Arcade and Shattered Memories were (by its own merits) decent efforts, but Silent Hill was already over by then and I guess that's the problem the publisher and fans had problems accepting.

Regarding, P.T. it really didn't have to do much with Silent Hill itself more than being a new kind of what Silent Hill was originally. And much of P.T. is as good as it is (or was?) thanks to the sound design and the claustrophc presentation they went with. Also, it was great seeing the Fox Engine used to scare the hell of people.

Even Sonic fans don't have it this bad.

That's not true. Besides, isn't a portion of that fanbase way too strange for its own good?

@Dincrest: I'm not against either Final Fantasy XV or Star Ocean 5 character designs personally. Like I said before, is the transition of 2D to 3D and the overall look of the game itself with SO5 that I have sort of an issue with, but is not the biggest deal on my end. Besides, complaining about Star Ocean's anime aesthetic is, if anything, ironic at this point to be honest.

Which is why at the very least, sir, you were dead on with your comment :)

Of course he was. Of course. lol.

Not so much focus groups as much as simple marketing tactics.

Wait. Is there any real difference between focus groups and marketing tactics anyway? Legit question.

Which is why you read more than one sentence of a post. Sure, the better term would've been "Character customization" or even "customizable outfits", but the rest of his post made that fairly clear that he was going for that (which I can say for certain now that I'm awake and lucid).

Alright then.


I do agree with various points that you make, but regardless my mentality on this is more relate to design rather than the idiosyncrasies of the genre. Hope I'm being clear by saying that but you know what they say about arguments and counterarguments.
