Man... for me Ornstein and Smough became really easy once I stopped using the Demon's Spear and switched to the crystal halberd. The only part I felt was difficult was due to sheer frustration was the Tomb of Giants area and those damn skeleton dogs.

There's a lot of chatter here so im just going to try and talk about everything in my point of view.
I just want Nintendos efforts to be noticed by more people. They have always been in there own world. Just doing what they do. But they are getting better with the online stuff, there recent addition of making funds from wii u and 3ds one system is a start. Maybe they will get to account based games. And the way they are treating the Nintendo ID, i would not be to surprised if they do at some point hit that mark. And it will be in Nintendo Fashion....they will prob make it enjoyable to download games form your account with some cute animation.
Nintendo's efforts with their games should be recognized (and it is), but on the console end? I don't ever see anything remotely out there advertising the WiiU. If there is, it's not visible. I consistently see the Xbox One and PS4 advertisements everywhere. There is absolutely no visibility of the WiiU.
Everything that has plagued the WiiU is 99% Nintendo's fault. The consumers should not be blamed for a lot of the missteps that Nintendo have made in the home console market. Some people say that it is unfair some of these criticisms of Nintendo. But how? Nintendo from the get go has promised that the games were coming, but it is such a slow trickle of games. It doesn't help that they've almost completely lost 3rd party support and when they do get it they can't secure exclusive bonus content or in some cases content is cut from the game.
I would say because it feels like they are consistently trying to their own thing, in their own world, their margin for error in not recognizing certain things is huge. They seemingly ignore or don't properly understand certain trends while creating new ones, but at the same time unable to sustain viability of that trend. The best example is the motion controller, it had its moment with the Wii and now its gone. An example of not understanding a trend is the online space and how gaming is becoming very much more digital and connected through online.
I'm not going to scream that Nintendo is on their deathbed, but rather I'm just disappointed that in the last 3 generations of Nintendo consoles there hasn't been enough for me, for me to keep me interested in and feeling justified in my purchase of their consoles. I know I'm not alone in that sentiment too. This will be the first generation of all Nintendo home consoles (not counting Virtual Boy) I'm pretty sure that I will skip.
One last thing, Killzone actually crashed after I installed the patches. I never played it without the patches installed. Even so, this is a AAA exclusive launch title. I would have thought they would have made basically put in every effort to iron out the problems pre-launch. I don't expect every game, or even any game, to be perfect, but I got a crash after playing an hour on the first game I ever played on a brand new console. It's a little daunting, to say the least.
When I got my launch Xbox 360, I remember very vividly games like Perfect Dark Zero and Gun causing frequent freezes and crashes. I would say launch releases regardless of AAA or not, would have the most problems due to developers having newer hardware to deal with. It's hard to expect games running "perfectly" at launch or even a year into the console cycle as developers are getting familiar with ins and the outs.
Mass Effect 3's main arc is what I hoped 2 would cover. Honestly, the main story in 2 feels kind of secondary. It's more about characters and such (well, Cerberus stuff would be worth going through before 3).
But I'm one of the few that think 3 is the best game in the trilogy. And easily top 5 for the generation.
Certainly ME3 a better game than 2 but the journey in ME2 and even ME1 to an extent felt extremely rewarding. All those characterizations and building relationships towards some characters in the first two games for me pay off in 3. Everything happening in the first two games is to build up towards ME3 and setting up for those events. That's why it feels like the main story in 2 feels secondary and doesn't necessarily go anywhere.
Don't get me wrong though, ME2 is essential in my opinion, as the ME series is about the journey not destination (as cliched as that is). If you skip ME2, like @encephalon says I would just abandon the series altogether as it's not worth it at all to miss out decisions and on the journey. Might as well find someone who LPs like you might have played the game.
Besides the framerate drops and resolution problems... Dead Rising 3 became Dynasty Warriors?
Both games have been about fighting waves of Chinese since their inception.
The funny thing is that the producer behind the Dynasty Warriors series has actually stated that they considered doing a zombie-themed Warriors title at one point since zombies are so popular in the west.
That makes too much sense. It already plays that way.
I hope they step up next gen with DW.
I sincerely hope they take out freedom of movement and automatically move me to the next enemy whenever I press an attack button :/
Is it cus that bottle looks tiny? Or because he vaguely looks like he's preforming fellatio on the bottle?
Sorry i just woke up.
Let's just say that those two questions aren't entirely separate and with keeping that in mind, I answer yes to those questions.
And so begins the downfall of Brad.....
Hilarious. Remember guys, don't impulse buy games off of Steam. It seems like anyone can get a game up on their store these days.
Don't impulse buy games more than $5 off of Steam is more like it.
If you don't enjoy this game, it's just because you're no longer, or never were a platformer guy.
But what if I like Rayman: Legends and I don't like NSMBU... what does that mean?
What if... Mario shaves?
What if... now stay with me here... what if Mario has a gun?
He's always had a gun, Mushroom Kingdom is conceal carry.
Is it under his hat?
