@i_stay_puft: Um playing the digital version from PSN. And yes the mantis trick still works and its easier than ever considering all you have to do on PS3 to change controller ports is hit the PS Button and select it from the menu.

You know what I did during RAW tonight? I played Metal Gear Solid. Time much better spent. Every time I did flip it on it was some useless match or segment that added nothing to anything. I'm actually kind of excited to see Punk vs Taker but lets face it the build up will be awful but they could put on a great match.

Well, almost done with Metal Gear Solid. I just beat Vulcan Raven so next up is Metal Gear Rex after I go through this duuuuumb process of heating and cooling this PAL card. Which is by far my least favorite portion of the entire game.

So running through this today I did remember most of the little gameplay tricks and story beats but one thing that I think I may have overlooked every time I've played so far unless its explained within the next few minutes is they got Baker's launch code via torture but they obviously didn't get the DARPA chief's since Ocelot went overboard with the torture and killed him. So unless they got the DARPA chief's code some other way which I overlooked this is a huge oversight? Then again, like i said its been awhile... like almost 10 years since I've last played this game so... I've forgotten a ton about the details. So I dunno if anyone can explain that one shoot cause I'm game.

Anyways, this game freaking holds up man. The controls are archaic for sure but damn man the boss fights are still fucking GREAT boss fights. The Cyborg Ninja fight is great and that sniper wolf death scene STILL makes me get weepy every damn time I see it that is until Otocon shows up and ruins the entire mood of the scene. Anyways, I've got to be up for work in like 6-ish hours so I'll leave the last hour or so for tomorrow. Then I'll dive right into Metal Gear Solid 2... or...possibly I'll tackle all of the VR missions in MGS first. Who knows! I blew through 1 out of the 5 games in one day so I'm really upping the pace on this thing already.

Metal Gear March continues tomorrow~!

It basically comes down to how well MGR and GOW:A do in sales this month. If they both bomb then yes, the fans didn't matter and it's just the industry and genre. However, if MGR and GOW:A sell great, then there's no question that Capcom fucked themselves in the asshole with a giant dildo with worms.

This was the easiest thing to not fuck up. They had THREE YEARS of feedback from fans about what they were doing was wrong.

I never usually say this, but seriously. Fuck the fans. This new game is universally acclaimed by critics AND people who bought the damn game. The 'fans' are the ones that aren't listening.

The "fans" are the ones who also turned their noses up at DMC 4 as well. So Capcom was in a lose/lose here and I'm sure they figured trying to broaden the appeal was the best bet. So good job everyone the only thing this ensured is that Capcom is going to quit trying to make DMC games period.

I remember the fans really liking DMC4 except for the part where you play through the entire game at that point as Dante in reverse. I don't remember them being up in arms about the gameplay or the rest of the game. Maybe Kyrie, maybe Nero (at first, then the hatred against him died down the more they played him), maybe the fact that there's more than a few unanswered questions in the series regarding Dante's family, but other than that, I don't remember most fans hating the game itself. If anything, the relative hatred for DMC4 only flared up more in recent times leading up to the release of DmC in some vain attempt at making it look like 4 was never a good game in the first place and DmC was gonna be awesome and the direction the series needed.

Well, they did and DMC 4 just had the good luck of having everyone in a froth after the masterpiece that was DMC 3. There was very much a tepid response. The only difference is that response didn't happen until AFTER everyone had played it.

They did? Really? How can I trust you on this when it's clear you have something against old DMC fans that gave the game a chance and ended up hating it, let alone those who were personally insulted by Capcom/NT themselves?

See, the problem here is that the majority of the people who have taken issue with DmC either haven't played the game at all or are just parroting negative things that other people have said. There have been plenty of fair critiques of the game and its not a perfect game but when there is insanely childish behavior like people organizing 1-star bombing runs on metacritic. There is legitimate critique but its buried within a sea of absolute stupidity from fans who have no idea what they want.

lol I like that you're asking this in the actual 'Question' format. Anywhoo while console games naturally pale in comparison to their PC counterparts, some are able to surprise and look relatively OK. Hitman Absolution first springs to mind where I was stunned that a console game (and a multi-platform one at that) can still manage to look that good.

Happy to know that Tomb Raider is also perfectly fine on consoles.

Fucking Eidios man. Don't underestimate them. That was an absolute get for Squarenix.

@traveux: I've got a word for you. DISGUSTING.

I don't see what is creepy here. Seriously. I don't see why seemingly everyone's gut reaction to something they don't understand = CREEPY. If you're calling this creepy and any of you motherfuckers got weepy at Walking Dead or any other game I want to punch you in the face for being an idiotic hypocrite. Its the same thing. A person/character that doesn't exist pulling emotions out of you. Its just people having harmless fun. Quit being judgmental idiots.
