Who needs a laptop these days? Programmers, writers...

I'm using one right now with a bunch tabs open on Firefox and a real keyboard to type on.  I make do with my phone a lot of the time, but I would never want it or a tablet to be my only option.

Again, statements like this are impossible to argue against. If a critic gave it a good score, it's because it's a good "Souls" game, not a good game in general? We're not talking the divide between Call of Duty and Madden. It's a difficult third-person action RPG. Sure, it has some trademarks - respawning enemies, the need to practice, the somewhat obscure currencies - but honestly it's not that different than Devil May Cry or some other games. 

 

As far as the critics, Metacritic does not have a SINGLE mediocre or bad review of this game. So, you're saying all 60 critics are in the tank for From Software? Go on the Bloodborne subreddit and read all the stories of people who have never played a Souls game and are falling in love with this game. 

 

I don't know why I care so much, but hearing everyone dismiss this as "oh another Souls game, forget it" is irritating. 

 

It's really no different to a franchise like Forza getting very good reviews across the board everytime a new one comes out (apart from the rushed for launch Forza 5).  But because Cheapy doesn't like the Souls series and feels left out, he comes up with a conspiracy theory to explain it.

Mario Party seems like a soul-destroyingly bad game on the Giant Bomb 50 turn videos.

Wombat was right about DeNA. After 400 episodes it's still amusing when Cheapy automatically assumes Wombat is wrong about something, when in fact he's correct and it's Cheapy who is wrong. Especially when it's something to do with Japan.

DeNA Co., Ltd. (株式会社ディー・エヌ・エー Kabushikigaisha Dī-Enu-Ē?) (pronounced "DNA") is a provider of mobile portal and e-commerce websites based in Japan.

PS4 outsells the Xbone in the NPD again despite being more expensive.  It's not the price that has the PS4 ahead in America and almost 2:1 ahead worldwide.  MS has had price parity or being cheaper since June last year.
