Yeah, the video pretty much sums up my doubts and skepticism on this whole issue. The whole 180 is complete bs so they can save face, and what makes it sad is that gamers and consumers will end up running back to them, with an half-assed apology they don't mean. I mean, blaming the gamers, and alienating the people who can't play their system because they don't have the means or money to do so. I mean isn't that enough to get gamers to think about who to place their faith in? At the end of the day, it seems that gamers only want to play their game(s) and will allow these companies to continue these bs practices, and that saddens me.
MS as a gaming company lost their way, and like I said they fucked up big time with me. We flash cash and they gave a product that lowered our expectations and tried to force it down on us. Who knows if they'll change but for now I give them two big middle fingers and treat them like trash. Xbox 180 is such a big waste of time anyway, and despite the fact that KI is the only game I want from that system, I'll just wait for a PC or make a Steam account in the future just to play it.
Hey there long time no talk.
Just watched the video, from the title along "Microsoft Listened.....But Lost My Trust". That's true, it's like Capcom after being a fan all these years, they backstab fans and start to alienate them and just try to feed them BS and crap made their game bomb lol, but enough of that this time around MS knows where this is going and they're gonna lose sales pretty much, like the vid said they already have a mindset and have planned it all out even going digital means your not owning anything. They need to win the trust back to fans and consumers. MS looks at gaming as a business, their mindset is to make money which lessens the quality of their product and games alike. All I can say they're just greedy bastards that need to learn what having fun with a game is about.
Yo, Kenji. I know it's been awhile but I wanted to share this one video with you, as it pretty much sums up my feelings and skepticism of Microsoft pulling an 180 all of a sudden. I know you probably seen or read tones of videos and news on this, but I wanted to share this with you because I enjoy talking game related issues or controversies with you.
If you don't wish to watch it's fine, just wanted to say hey because I haven't spoken to you in a while. None the less, here it is.,
Sorry for the sudden visit, but have you seen the latest Event Status video? There's a link regarding a nomination for "Philly Geek" and I plan to nominate him for all the hard work and dedication to the gaming community. Link is in the info bar of said released video.
I don't know if you've seen the video by the time I'm telling you this, but wanted to pop by and say hi. If I'm bothering you please accept my apologies.
Me too, 5-6 puzzles and atmosphere was lacking because of the action concept overshadowing those elements. 4 was balanced and I enjoyed the most of the the other due to who drifted way from its craft.
i hated DmC from the beginning. I'm sure you knew that because of our mutual understanding of how bad the move was and the unprofessional tactics that went into the game. Plus, companies paying for high ratings is just a cheap way to get sales, and it's totally sickening to me too. The game sucked, they made a bad move, they should learn to deal with it!
I loved fighting games and RPGs the most. I'm so looking forward to Tales of Xillia and waiting for the Europe to gets Persona 4 Arena in hopes that online play will start picking up against. Plus, I really want to test and see how I'll fare about European players. Knowing them, I'm sure Clementine will still be younger just to keep the short length of the story to keeps it consistency going. That's just me though, but I'm still torn between waiting for the full game or buying it 1 episode at a time. Have to wait to see where this goes.
Me too, after FF13 and the way the company is mismanaged in terms of direction and creativity, it's been dead to me, as well. I still cling to the hope that Versus XIII will come, but why do I even bother since FF13 just continues to live and have to make bad awful games sell to get a FF7 remake. I hate that DLC endings too, it seems to be the new fad for DLC these days. That's why I youtube a playthrough before buying a game just to see if somethings off, so to speak.
It's just BS dude. I'm sure it's just an excuse for fans to buy past titles, get more money, and screw over more buyers just to make more demands since the remake has been requested for years. Where's aspirin when you need one, seriously! -_-
As much as I like RE5 and 6 it's still too action for an atmosphere for me, unlike RE4 which had it balanced and still have those puzzles. God I hated when they took off the investigate in RE6, the puzzles are too damn easy and like RE5 you just need to collect items.
Same here, though Iam more to fighting, action based martial arts and RPG games. I just wonder if Clementine will still be young or older. Wonder if the old save can still run, if you shot Lee he'll be dead, but if not you might get to see him later in WD2. Iam awaiting that, but awaiting the full game not an episode per episode game.
FF series is dead for me, not unless they pull an phoenix down and suddenly revive it. God also hate DLC endings now, the one that grapes me now is Asura's Wrath's ending dlc, that's gonna be the last draw for me.
That article is bullshit. FF7 remake is most requested, but they're so affraid ohhh~~!! Jeezz...=_=
After RE 5-6 I pretty much lost faith in Cashcom. There RE: Revelations coming out but I'm sort of skeptical since the action aspect will overlook the horror in retrospect. DmC, i knew it was a bad move from the beginning. The unprofessionalism that went into the game like ignoring and treating the fanbase like trash, not paying attention or adding elements that made Devil May Cry special only made things worse and sealed the games fate harshly.
I don't like FPS either since I'm more of RPG, Hack n Slash, and action etc. I'll wait for season 2 of WD when it gets released this year. I hope Clementine is the protagonist.
I should've just rented it FF13 instead of buying it. Since I was a gamer who bought games without looking at them properly back then, I wasted my money and my time on inferior products that don't live up to games that have said series labeled on them. I'm truly worried on how Kingdom Heart 3 will be treated-- probably like FF13-2 and take out stuff we'll have to pay for. Now FF13-3... where's aspirin when you need, seriously!
Great article and FF Online got the same negative backlash, as well. Speaking of which, the President of S.E Wada is said to be limiting all staff creativity. What sort of nonsense is this?!
True, RE5-6 are good, but not RE good in standards like much the new DmC is. It's a hack and slash game, but not a DEVIL MAY CRY game. Lost Nightmares kinda redeems RE5 a bit, but that's just about it.
I really don't like FPS, Iam more of a 3rd person guy,you'll rarely see me play FPS, so pretty much skipping this new WD game.
Man that is why I didn't FF13, just rented it, when I found out there was going be a FF13-2 it's FFX-2 again! This time it looks like Kingdom Hearts with a DLC ending!?! After that I paid no attention to S.E. like Ca$hcom.
Both companies are just re-living there glory days, but cannot deliver now anymore since most of the brains are gone from Ca$hcom and S.E. lost their touch.
I thought RE 5-6 were good but not RE good. 4 I'd say is better than 5 and 6 because even 4 had of the horror factor than the other two games had. Some monsters in 4 were creepy and spooky you have to admit. The beta would've been an instant buy, but they needed to branch off before the series was still at its highest. Shooting zombies are cool, but limited in ammunition, cryptic puzzles, and creepy atmospheric elements make the games shine in its entirety 1-Code Veronica X proves that point.
I still don't know whatever I'd like that version or the recently season 1 finished version better. Looks pretty neat though, not enough spook factor in the trailer though.
Me too. Final Fantasy XIII how that will forever continue to piss me off! They canceled Versus XIII and let that piece of garbage of a FF live and making a third game with one character playable only. I paid $60 for both FF13 games and I still continue to kick myself for buying the game, and when I found out they took the ending out. I was pissed! Like Crapcom, Sqaure Enix are a sinking ship sinking faster than they could possibly imagine, seriously!
