I hate it when people say "well this is my honest review of this game" because it makes them sound like assholes and also their honest opinions always are something bad, people confuse honesty with either trolling or nitpicking really basically whenever someone says this is my honest review of this game its them saying they didn't like it and screaming it in your face as fact rather an option
the unskippable is the greatest thing to come out of the escapist since zero punctuation in fact ZP seems a bit played out now a days but anyways if you like MST3k and games this is a dream come true
They crafted a story that actually makes you feel for the characters main example nanako (your like 7 year old cousin that you live with) gets me every damn time shes lonely and wants you to spend time with her and you better do that or you feel like an asshole one time she wanted to talk and I wanted to go make out with the nurse then it said she looked sad and was about to cry so I was like aw damn it fine I'll spend quality time with you and then you actually in real life feel good about it afterwords
let me just start by saying I watch anime I enjoy it but watching those video on anime vice just makes me embarrassed for liking anime just because you like anime does not mean you have to basically blow a load for anything Japanese in my option they are a little too into it watching their videos makes me think "god what fucking nerds" but then I think "oh god am I like that"
ok I have many crazy-ass ideas for rockband 3 and to keep the whole music game category form getting really stale first let me say I'll love love rockband 2 and I've bought over 200 DLC songs now for my crazy-ass ideas
--you when it says you drummer is complaining play a hard song or you people want you to do stuff like benefit show it would be awesome if there was a cutscene with your made band to show that it would be unvoiced and just text but it would be awesome
--add in a tinny bit of the sims the way I mean is like this if you choose to go parting everynight you'll get tired and then get less fans but if you choose to say home all the time you'll be uptight and boring thus getting you less fans so you'll have to balance your partying and your staying home practicing
----pre-song chose your own adventure style choices when in worldtour mode you pick a song you want to play and you'll see a little thing where you see your band driving to the gig then the drive asks you "should I take main street or park ave" and if you pick the wrong one BAM traffic jam and your late to the gig thus getting less money for the song you were going to play, another choice sleeping with groupies or not you might get in trouble by getting one pregnant or you would just get laid and you play better at the next gig thus getting more fans
the reason I say put this stuff in is because the straight just playing a song is lockdown harmonix knows how to do it you need start putting more stuff to do in it to keep it fresh and yes playing songs is still what your going to be doing 80% of the time all this stuff is just in between songs
finally a game with an ending not only does this game actually have an ending a rare thing these days but its so beautiful and nice it made me smile just watching it VC my game of the year and yes I've beaten gta 4 mgs4 deadspace little big planet, fallout 3 star wars the force unleashed bioshock and yes Valkyria Chronicles is honestly better than all of them
trivia questions that have the wrong answer as the right one answer I had my streak of to 40 when the question "what color is sonic the hedgehog?" I said blue and it said he was green that's just an example I've seen about 13 questions that are wrong
I think that this whole PS3, Xbox 360 debate is getting ridiculous. Certain PS3 owners refuse to believe that their super Sony machine could possibly be home to an inferior version of top tier title, while certain 360 owners cant stop screaming "pwnd" and "PS3 suxorz". People are riled up on both sides.
I own a PS3. Blu-Ray is awesome and having such a powerful console is great, but all that power is not doing me much good. Fallout 3 being a little bit worse graphically on the PS3 is one thing, locking up my game every time one of my friends logs on is another. But hey, I can deal that (pull my Ethernet cable). What I can't deal with and am realizing is that the PS3 is often home to the inferior port of a multi-platform release. Assassins Creed was plagued with problems, Skate. had horrible frame rate issues, and I personally wasn't a fan of FarCry 2's performance. That coupled with easy problems to fix (why can't I listen to music in all of my games, I have 7 SPE's!!) and a shoddy online network (Sony is a big company, servers don't cost that much!) really make me regret my purchase. MGS4 was amazing (I've never been so wowed by graphics), but that can only go so for.
I own a 360. Its died 4 times, and I towel my fifth one every other day. Its the loudest piece of electronics i have ever owned, and my disc drive doesn't eject without me physically pushing it in first. Yet it is home to some great software, and Live is awesome (Whether your a fan of Microsoft or not, you have to admit its a slick system). But even though all of these multi-platform games seem to be better for the 360, I'm afraid to buy them! Listening to my disc drive whirr and sputter while my fans are on full bore is distracting. Also distracting is the thought of having to place yet another call to Microsoft to talk to my Egyptian Customer Service Rep.
This bring me to my point. I love my PS3, its stable, quiet, and looks great next to my HDTV. Yet it is plagued with problems that are no fault of the hardware, but the fault of the people programing the games and Sony themselves. Microsoft bends over backwards (not to mention opens its wallet) to insure that developers have an easier time making games for the console. Where as Sony seems to think that movie industry will keep the console going, and the developers will figure things out for themselves. (I bought the PS3 for games 1st, Movies 2nd :|)
There is absolutely NO REASON that a console withe the PS3's strength cant do everything the 360 does and more. PSN could be every bit as good as live (there is a great community of PS3 owners out there) , and given the proper tools, developers should be able to do jaw dropping things with the hardware.
As PS3 owners, our problem isn't the Console, Its the people running the company behind it.
