For the record I know a lot of people who felt bad playing SotC because the 'hero' really does just go around killing peaceful, majestic creatures 

 

 

Every colossus in the game will KILL YOU the second it sees you. They're not fucking frolicking or taking their kids to school when you fight them. Jesus Christ this is pathetic.

I don't think it's medically wise for me to be rolling my eyes this far back.

Anyone else just not a fan of the GTA series?

For me personally I just don't like playing as a villan. I don't mind if its not super realistic but in a game like GTA it just doesn't feel right. Just a gaming pet peeve of mine I guess.

I don't like playing the villain either, but that's because I'm a professional criminal and like to play my games for escapism.

Re: This Phil dude being an ass. Can anyone provide a link for citation?

 

I BTA, 100% to Charity.

 

They've taken down every upload of Fish being a complete fucking shithead to a Japanese developer at a GDC panel. In the video the young Japanese developer asks Fish what Japanese games influenced him and he responds with "none of them, they all suck". The panel then giggles among themselves like smug twats and the guy who asked the question is made to look like an idiot because of it. 

 

There is some merit in pointing out the flaws in modern japanese game development, but there are much better ways to go about it than to belittle someone publicly the way they did. It's shameful, and it really does make me feel nothing but resent and anger towards him. He makes no apologies for the way he is, and that's fine, but it just means I won't support any project he's involved in.

Think I'm going to pull the trigger on VLR. Almost finished with 999. Any reason to pick the 3DS version over this one?

 

Vita version has better sound, visuals, and comes with three save slots compared to the one you get on the 3DS. 

 

The 3DS cart version of the game has a nasty save deleting glitch late in the game. The digital version of the game on the Nintendo e-shop has it removed, though.

Yeah that's true, but something similar could be said about practically every game with a story.

 

I dunno, try saying that about 999 or Virtue's Last Reward. Or Ghost Trick. 

 

 

It's not a zombie outbreak story, there aren't any zombies in the game.

 

Okay, "infected" then. The fact of the matter is that the story is very obviously heading in a direction where you know the outcome almost immediately after being presented with a new situation. It cherry picks tropes left and right and paints a very nice portrait for itself while coloring inside the lines. It's predictable, but it's effective.

If it was a jrpg it would have had dialog like

 

Tess - "Joel! I need that Pheonix Down!"

Joel  - "Ok! Are you flirting with me?"

Tess - "Noooooooooooo!"

Ellie - "Guys! SHUT UP! You're embarrassing."

Talking Cat - "Whooples!"

Joel - "Whoop, be quiet."

Talking Cat - "whoop. whoop."

Tess - "I'm scared. We are in danger!"

Ellie - "We will be okay! We will survive.... together!"

All in unison - "TOGETHER UNITE!"

 

And yes, i'd have completely skipped it.

 

A talking cat would've been a nice change of pace for the actual game. It's very good, but if you're even somewhat familiar with any bit of post-apocalyptic zombie outbreak story you know exactly where the story's gonna end up as soon as it starts.

So what's everyone hopes for this months PS+ lineup? I'm personally hoping for Dead Island GOTY.

 

GTA V, Yoshi's Island, Final Fantasy VII: HD Remake, and Battletoads for the Vita.

It all has to do with the ending where you find out Ellie's a ghost that can only be seen by Joel.

It makes me sick that I'm going to qualify for this promotion and I don't even have a 3DS. I'm the fucking worst.
