On a slightly related note, if you didn't get a chance to watch the GB PAX Prime 2014 panel yet, everybody's favorite lovable goof, John Vignocchi, announced at the panel that Ninja Theory would be helping out with some of the combat in Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition). They didn't really say to what extent they were helping out, but it was said that they were at least helping with the combat for the playable villains, as well as Princess Jasmine. That news kind of came out of nowhere, but it's an interesting addition to both Disney Infinity and Ninja Theory's repertoire.

Personally, I like Ninja Theory. I didn't play Heavenly Sword, but I thought Enslaved and DMC were pretty good games. Flawed, for sure, but they were certainly interesting and unique with a kind of ridiculous, grungy flair and style that they fully committed to. I'm a fan of weird B-tier games, and Ninja Theory's games have always seemed to fall into that category.

I also don't remember what the last big AAA character action games were besides the God of War games. Honestly, I don't know if I really consider anything that Platinum has developed to be a AAA game, per se (despite the Metal Gear nomenclature on Revengeance). The original Devil May Cry games, perhaps, or the Ninja Gaiden games? Most of the recent character action games within the past couple years have more or less been unceremoniously dumped into the quiet late-winter/early-spring months without very much in terms of marketing or promotion. So I don't really know what a "AAA character action game" is anymore.

And I remember Kung Fu Chaos. I remember it being pretty decent and amusing, at least from the demo.

Happy Birthday, Sir Davis! I hope it is always Summer Jammin' over where you are in the Great Beyond. Thank you for everything.

I'm rooting for you, Vinny. You're certainly a brave man to go back home after all the terrible things we've heard about New York in the past few weeks. Surely, absolutely all of that was completely and utterly true.

Godspeed and good luck, Mr. Caravella.

That's pretty awesome. I miss Ryan.

Rosalina seems like a pretty interesting and unique character to play. However, I was really distracted by how COMPLETELY CRAZY Donkey Kong looks with his new HD hair tech.

My body is ready.

Someone was bound to say it eventually. It might as well be me.

The Digital Game sales are pretty good. Saints Row IV is currently $15, which is cheaper than the $20 it's going for on Steam right now. But yeah, that PlayStation Plus deal is pretty good, even though you can find it at that price in a lot of places other places. Saves you from having to hunt for it, though, and you get $5 of Instant Video credit.

As far as I know, the Wii version of the game doesn't have any of the online functionality that the other versions have. Rather, it appears to have a slightly different set-up for the Toy Box mode where you can unlock different types of Toy Boxes (driving, combat, etc.) and can customize those. Without the online functionality, you are limited to two-player local co-op (the other versions have up to 4-player online co-op) and you cannot upload or download Toy Box levels.

Bottom line: It is significantly better on the PS3, 360 and Wii U. If you have any of those systems, get one of those versions.

I think we're missing something here, guys. For months, Sony has been the beloved savior of the internet masses. Why would they betray that trust now? What changed in the last few weeks? Wait a minute...it can't be...no...it was him. IT WAS HIM!

No, you fool. IT WAS -HIM-.

No, you're both wrong.

Aww, son of a bitch!

@yummylee: As far as I know, he is, unless there's some weird episode that I haven't seen of one of the Batman cartoons in which Batman and the Joker switch bodies or show an alternate universe where Batman is The Joker, but I don't think either of those cases count anyway. I almost forgot that he voiced Batman in Lego Batman 2 and its subsequent direct-to-video movie that was little more than the cinematics from the game, not to mention that he did voice two characters in Arkham City as well (I think he also might've been Two-Face again in Lego Batman 2).

What I'm curious about is whether or not this is just a case where all of the games Troy Baker has worked on for the past few years just happen to be coming out at around same time. I remember this happened for Nolan North around 2009 when Uncharted 2 came out and it just seemed like he was in EVERYTHING (that might've been around the same time they started up the Northies? I could be wrong). I'd be really impressed if he keeps up anywhere near this level of output throughout the next few years.
