While the exclusives have not been great on ps4, as a console I'm very happy with it. PS+ games have giving me 100's of hours of playtime, the UI is smooth as silk even when you're doing stuff like Shareplay and games generally run without any problems.

While it's totally fair to be dissapointed in the lack of exclusives and the number of AAA games launching broken, compared to the clusterfuck the start of the last generation was, these consoles are a hundred times more reliable, better running and fully featured. The games will come eventually, having a well build and reliable machine from the get go, is at least as important.

Always for Vinny and always against Brad. Angry Brad is best Brad.

I'd be very surprised if MGS 5 and No man's Sky isn't out this year. Final Fantasy 15 is like one big delay, so delaying it more would just be par for the cause.

I think both Sony and Microsoft need their big games to drop this year, so we'll probably see both Halo and Uncharted.. Honestly Zelda seems like the most like to see a delay of the big games, considering Nintendos high ambitions with it.

I'm guessing between 20-30$. I also imagine Sony pushing the game so much it'll get one of those weird retail releases of a digital game, that Child of Light, Walking Dead, etc. got.

In the sense that Vice City is almost a perfect game, no I don't think we'll see Rockstar making something like that again.

I could see them making a Vice City 2 though, but it would definitely be more serious in tone and less direct in it's homage of 80's pop culture. The Rockstar of today wants to tell their own stories, so things in the vein of the carbon copy of the Scarface end scene, would probably be against what they're trying to achieve today.

The description makes it sound a lot worse than it actually is in the game. The director jelling cut immediately afterwords makes it pretty clear that neither the rape nor the killings are real.

It's still a disturbing scene of course, but Hotline Miami suppose to be a disturbing game.

Guess this is what killed Neogaf?

It will be interesting to see how this affects IGN.com as a whole. Right now it's by far the most popular games journalism site, but this is quite the exodus and comparable to "everybody" leaving GS after gertsmanngate I think.

It will be interesting to see what happens over at IGN but I don't think it's quite on that level. IGN has a huge staff and many personalities. This will effect many of their shows like Podcast Beyond, Up At Noon, etc. Also Greg hosted a lot of their live shows so there's also a void there. I'm pretty sure this wont really effect IGN too much and it will still be the most popular games journalism site.

Yeah, just like with Gamespot and Kotaku, most people visiting IGN probably don't care about the personalities at all, they visit because of written news and don't care who writes it.

Is a big site like IGN sustainable if people only come for the news though? Especially since there's so many places you can get general gaming news now. I imagine this is one of the reasons almost all the larger gaming sites has gone towards something more personality driven in the last 5-6 years.

Yeah, there isn't really any site that would be an obvious choice to take over for IGN. Gamespot seem to be much smaller now and isn't in a great financial situation based on the recent layoffs. Giant Bomb isn't even trying to reach that broad an audience.

Podcast Beyond seem to be gone as well. If the new podcast Greg & co. are making doesn't hit it off in the same way, I could see a lot of people migrate over to the Bombcast.

Once again Alex's list is the one the best mirrors my own.
