It's good that the 3DS has backwards compatibility, because there were SO MANY good DS games.

Radiant Historia is the best DS game.

This.

I think Destiny is good, I just hated how Bungie reacted to the criticism. Basically saying anyone who criticized it isn't being taken seriously, because they've paid for the game and played it a certain number of hours. It's a good move though, because gamers are too weak willed to let their money do the talking, even though Bungie has shown money is the only language they understand. They can keep putting out disappointing games with disappointing DLC and can keep shrugging off negative criticism by saying: 'We have data that shows you actually loved it. You paid X number of dollars for Y number of hours. So there aren't any problems according to you'.

They're moving up to one of the worst developers of this time.

Why should Bungie bury their own game? Seems counterproductive. They'll bury Destiny 1 6 feet under when they start talking about the sequel.

Acknowledging your game is disappointing and actively saying your customers are full of shit are two totally different things. I can completely understand them not admitting it isn't the game they wanted to make, but saying the criticism isn't to be taken seriously because look at all this money and these numbers, is not something I have to respect.

Their conceited approach isn't great, but they're still correct. Great sales means that the faceless masses are enjoying it. Considering that Destiny's a new IP, Bungie are probably happy that it sold well.

Remember Ryan? You can be really smart and wildly entertaining at the same time. Dan's an idiot, albeit a lovable one. For me it's more the gigantic hole left behind on the west coast GB with Vinny's departure, let alone still missing The Host.

How's Dan an idiot? Sounds like he was just a sheltered youth before College, where most of his stories come from. Dude brute-forced his way into the video game industry, which is kind of admirable.

Problems on both (and lots of games this year) can be attributed to cross-generation development sucking time and resources (and lowered the quality of the current-gen versions). Titanfall 2 and Destiny 2 will likely be current-gen exclusive, and will be developed on the likely more user-friendly current SDKS. Therefore, Titantfall 2 and Destiny 2 will be those "console sellers" you're looking for.

This generation of consoles has only started but the problems in gaming seem to be increasing dramatically. Problems like:

  • Broken games and beta versions of games being launched, and fixed after being sold to its consumer audience;
  • Will improve later in the cycle. Most current gen games were being developed before the consoles were out, using beta SDKS
  • A larger focus given to DLC;
  • deal with it.
  • Microtransactions;
  • deal with it.
  • Periferal issues conditioning creativity: the portrayal of sex, feminism;
  • only pansies care about these issues in a medium focused on entertainment, not political correctness
  • Sequels instead of new original intelectual properties.
  • new IPS are still in development. 360 didnt get anything good in the first 12 months either.

This generation started badly. Do you believe things can improve enough to make this generation better than the last?

Feel free to include other issues I have overlooked.

Come back at the end of 2015/Q1 2016. Also, don't forget that lots of original IPS are now indie games, whereas before they would've had to bring their ideas to a big publisher.

Good job :D! Matador was so fucking hard for me. I overleveled as much as I could (dudes gave nearly no exp) and he was still a tuffie.

Prepare ur anus tho, Nocturne's not done :). Though IIRC, Matador was one of the hardest bosses in the game since he's so early on, when you have fewer fusion possibilities.

ps: loved Nocturne tho. The press turn system was really cool, same with having Demons as party members.

@hermes: From what I played of Unity, the glitches aren't super obvious. You don't walk out into the streets of Paris and see faceless monsters looking back or anything. Honestly? My biggest issue with the game is design based, not the technical problems.

It's very telling that it was usually the same 2-3 pictures being passed around on social media when showing off graphical errors.

Aw :(

Why do people preorder? Because games could go OOS on day 1? Rare nowadays. There's Gamestops everywhere, and Gamestop and Walmart orders tons of AAA boxes of games (more then they will need) Retail copies ran out? Then get digitally. Both consoles have day 1 digital.

Nobody preorders because they're worried that they won't be able to get a game otherwise;they preorder because of appetizing """"""""""'free"""""""" preorder bonuses. The Bombcast crew failed to understand that people preorder because they just want free shit. Those people just don't get that nothing is free. In some cases, they are getting that free shit for the price of being a beta tester.
