Really disappointed Disney cancelled 1313. It's as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
You should get matching onesies.
Funny you used the word impasse because that word went through my mind last night too. I think a lot of people are on the fence with WiiUs and Vitas because of lack of software + high initial price + bad economy. The problem is compounded with the release of the PS4. Because the PS4 is announced all the PS3/360 stuff is going on sale as retailers make room for PS4 so now we can get so much more PS3 stuff for our money we don't want to spend $50 Wii U/$40 Vita games when we can buy them for $15 on the PS3. SE was smart to make Deus Ex more than just a port. I believe they anticipated this, but really the system has under 4 mill so you can only do so much.
I mean if you want a HD console you have a $200 PS3 bundle with 5 games and a 160gb hard drive vs a $350 console with 1 game and a 32gb hard drive. The timing of their release could not be any worse from a value perspective. A $300 device targets a more niche audience (less casual/family). This is the type of audience that plays core games which you can find most of cheaper on the current gen consoles. They really failed more than anything on delivering the 1st party games that would have sold the system despite the bad timing. Should have been a Zelda or Metroid game on day 1 along with Mario. Anything. You look at wikipedia gaming 2013 and there isn't even anything to be hopeful about for me.
Bioshock Infinite up there with Ocarina of Time for me and totally deserves it's 96 Metacritic. Don't think anyone gave it less than a 90.
MK was the best tourny worthy fighter i've played in years because it had so much singleplayer kontent between arcade, story, tag team, online, challenge tower and crypt unlocks. I'm with cheapy in that I think it will price cut fast, but kinda want to buy it on release since I trust NRS to release another good game. Really I should to spend more time playing MK first.
This is all happening too fast. Wish they held off on the PS4 announce until 2014. I think you'd have less people saving for PS4s and picking up Vitas/WiiUs and all these games wouldn't be pricecutting faster than usual. I have too many multiplayer games that need more playing this year. Not to mention releasing a new console around the time GTA V comes out? I'm going to be playing GTA V over the PS4.
