Well, that sucks. If you're going to do that exclusivity thing at least push the damn game. Honestly I hadn't heard of it before I got it in the last humble bundle and it might have even been what I was least interested in. Then...I played it and was like, "this shit is actually legit". I don't understand why it's overlooked. Simple but very polished. Stylish art. What little I played of the story was funny. And the multiplayer looks good (local and online). Certainly better than that Giana Sisters mess I was more excited about getting from the bundle.
They did push it, but a last-minute delay killed a lot of the hype since it was released a few weeks later after Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Doritos' Crash Course 2 stole their thunder. They ended up dumping it out on a Friday where bad games were typically released so that nobody would notice them.
I don't ever use 'rape' in that context but I I've also never given it much thought. It's crazy because I know people say it all the time but I really can't think of an appropriate example. lol, it does sound bad when you play it back in your mind. So, going to side with @affa on that.
But I do agree with @nixon's sentiments. Indie game price structure on consoles is silly. I'm not sure how much controls these guys have over pricing but I do wish there was more parity with PC. I'm not expecting humble bundle level though. As a result I rarely, if ever, buy day 1. And I'd love to throw more support by buying early, but it just doesn't make sense to.
Except that when those sorts of games launch on Steam, they're priced exactly the same way at $15 or so with maybe a 10% or 20% discount at launch, so why do they need to be priced low when they launch on a new platform because it's been on sale in the past? Both The Swapper and Rogue Legacy are $15 right now on Steam, so they're a little bit more on PSN to bundle three versions together with a PS+ discount that puts it in line with their full price on Steam and the cashback offer brings that down to just under $11 each on average. If you wait just like you would on Steam, you can get it on sale for a more appealing price compared to what it is at launch.
Alright everyone. I'm posting this now to debunk false rumors that start floating around the next week. NERDiots had a poll(yes a POLL) of what gamers would want for XBL's August freebies and people are now taking that list and running with it saying some of those games will be coming to GwG for August. Don't buy into the fake hype people!!!
But just so others know what people voted as what they want as freebies, here they are(again, poll of what people want)
X1 - AC IV: Black Flag
X360 - Call of Duty: Black Ops, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Sniper Elite V2 and Gears of War 2
That's not even a plausible list in any dimension where Activision is a Scrooge-style of company that can't even offer decent deals for their games.
"We've got this shitty Amazing Spider-Man 2 game that nobody would buy at full price, so let's put it on sale for $30 alongside $5 Batman Arkham games. We'll also do the same thing on PSN because we're so generous."
A warning, it's not the full game. Persona 2 was split into two parts: the first is called Innocent Sin and this is the sequel to that. So if there are some gaps in the story that you don't catch onto it's because we didn't get Innocent Sin.
Why Atlus won't just translate the other Persona 2 game I don't know.
Persona 2: Innocent Sin is out on the PSP here, while Eternal Punishment is just the PS1 version since they didn't bring the remake of that over from Japan.
I like that Cheapy called Abyss Odyssey a "Metrovania" game.
Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo sold about 500 million consoles last generation, so expecting them to do the same or better this gen after the performance of Wii U and Vita so far is completely unrealistic. I didn't really understand what Cheapy's point on Nintendo being slow to adapt was since it seemed like he didn't explain it well at all that just let Wombat rip him for changing the focus midway through that discussion. Take a deep breath and rethink what your point was, Cheapy, and let's try it again.
I completely agree with the point that Wombat was making that a smartphone is a secondary gaming device where I'll play the real things (3DS/Vita/console/PC) when at home and completely forget my phone exists on weekends or weeknights. There are tons of cheaper games on the 3DS and Vita, though not all of those are great and not all of them are the marquee titles that tend to be talked about all of the time. Nintendo needs to be more progressive with the eShop not only on pricing, but with sales and promotions because the same bad games go on sale all of the time and good/great titles are much more rare. However, I'd say that Nintendo makes some really progressive moves like releasing smaller Picross games at $6 each instead of one bigger game for $20 and there are others like the way Rusty's Real Deal Baseball and SteelDiver Sub Wars are handled in regards to F2P-style content.
I may not have been a Club Nintendo member for long enough to remember when they had worthwhile Platinum/Gold rewards, but the one physical reward I got was a dumb little calendar that takes them six months to get to me and is kind of useless in this day and age. I grabbed one of the 3DS eShop games from last year's offerings and then Game & Wario this year, which was good for me. The one issue I had is that they offered cheap Virtual Console games, $10-$15 eShop games, and then one retail title for Wii U and 3DS, so most are going for the most expensive games to get the most bang for their buck. For $25, Shipwreck can get a 32 GB SD card and never have to think about storage space again with ~200k blocks to work with and it's easy to move your things to a new card.
Comparing Club Nintendo to PS+ and Games with Gold and free-to-play games on iOS doesn't make any sense at all. Compare it to Sony and Xbox's rewards programs which don't offer up game codes for fairly cheap and don't offer up neat little things like posters, 3DS pouches, 3DS card storage cases, and things like that. They even have the Digital Deluxe Promotion that offers a $5 code in return for every $50 spent on the Wii U eShop, which I can tell you is much faster than what Sony and Microsoft offer on their ends.
There is a reason why companies have to follow through with their Kickstarter promises, which is their word/reputation is on the line, so their fans that backed their project now have no reason to support them anymore along with anybody that is following the story that is disgusted by their shitty response to the situation. Legal recourse is one thing, but disrespecting their loyal audience is an easy way to ruin the good thing they have going for them as they head into this weird era where they're asking for a cut of a game's sales in exchange for making a video of their game.
Microsoft could just offer voice control of the UI with the headset plugged into the controller like Sony offers for PS4.
