Really liked these last two episodes, thought it was a good way to show s-links while not intruding too much into the plot. AND NANAKO IS SO ADORABLE AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH. Looking forward to how they're gonna handle King's game, my bet is either rise lays here head in Yu's lap or Piggy back ride with Yosuke, cause I really feel they're setting up the Yu/Rise thing.
Wow, you guys. What's wrong with Ryan and Patrick? I think they're pretty awesome. At any rate, I'm excited for the new Endurance Run. (:
My problem with patrick and ryan, especially together, is that they can be way too cynical and not give games a chance. Ryan in particular seems to assume he knows things which he doesn't, and doesn't admit to not knowing these things. Patrick is okay, but he suffers similarly and whenever ryan is in a ql with him they kinda enable each other in their cynicism. It's hard to describe, and I'm sure not everyone feels that way. The Conduit 2 quick look probably exemplifies this the best. But whatevs, an ER is an ER so I'll at least give it a chance.
I've always thought scores were silly to a certain extent; that the true value in a review is in its critiques and not a number. It's a given that Uncharted 3 looks and plays well, I'm more interested in an overall evaluation of the experience and what it could do better than reviewers saying how a game is pretty. The difference between an 8-9 to me is negligible, all I need to get from that is "this game is good and you should probably play it". The only number I hold sacred is a 10, which should be reserved for a select few games that will remain ingrained in gaming culture for a long time.
P.S. that's why Giant Bomb's rating system is the best :D. Easy to understand, and not prone to petty arguments.
I agree it was a little fast but then again in the game the opening part was way too drawn out imo. Voice acting was good, I like the voice of Yu and think he acts very similarly to what I'd imagined he would. The voice of Izanagi was pretty badass as well, though I didn't think the fight scene was fantastic just okay. But hey, its the first fight against the weakest enemies. Looking forward to later episodes and how they're gonna handle the whole s-link/relationship stuff.
I feel like this would create a certain monopoly is some of the gaming market, and would decrease competition between the companies. It is through competition that we see stronger products and a push to advance hardware and software so this would be a bad idea for the video game playing population.
My thoughts exactly. I have all three consoles and I enjoy them all (though personally I'll always be partial to nintendo), and i think its because each console is so unique that we get such great first party games.
This is interesting news; I don't think it's inherently good or bad. I know Miike is crazy but he has done projects that weren't bloodbaths before like Yatterman. Although I am surprised that they went straight to live-action instead of anime first.
"In short, the hackers appear to be trying to "punish" Sony for some perceived injustice, and they've been effective in that I suppose. But they're also punishing millions of other consumers and businesses which makes it impossible to be sympathetic to their "cause". "
This is what I've been saying the whole time to those who blame Sony.
" On that last note: just what the hell are the hackers "punishing" Sony for? Is it something related to DRM? Or are they just being dicks? "
I think he's talking about the GeoHot original PS3 system hack and legal case
