Re: Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops

So this is nothing like Metal Gear Acid? No, not at all. Despite being a huge MGS fan (it's my favorite series), I've never played the Acid games, because they sound boring and they're not part of the main MGS story. However, I just read your Metal Gear Acid review for a refresher on that game, and...

Re: Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops

I played Portable Ops on the PSP years back. I remember the story getting pretty interesting, so I stuck with it and finished it. But I definitely got tired of the mission structure too, and dragging recruits back to the truck. Scoring this in the C range definitely sounds about right. I agree with ...

Re: The Top Ten Exclusive PS2 Games

Confession: I've never played a Ratchet & Clank game. I ignored the series for years, because I'm not usually into platformers. I realized the errors of my ways though - so a few months back, I bought Up Your Arsenal for PS2. The general consensus was that it's the best game in the series, so I ...

Re: This months's free PS+ games

June's free games just got announced. PS4: Xcom2: I've heard good things about Xcom, but I've never played. I'll definitely check this out. Trials Fusion: This looks like one of those physics based, vehicle based, obstacle course games everyone played for free in high school. Pass, probably. Whoa, ...

Re: 2018/5/14: Playstation 3: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

This is ridiculous. Come on, let's stop ignoring the giant elephant in the room, which is that there's fanboys that want every RPG to get an A+. I think DaHeck's review is one of the most I learnt reviews on the site and by far the most important for the RPG crew. I wasn't looking forward to the ne...

Re: 2018/5/14: Playstation 3: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

I think it also depends on the review site. If you're a professional working for IGN or Forbes, yeah I'd expect you to finish the game and write a full five page report and include at least a half dozen screenshots along with a video clip. This site however has established itself as a "quick a...

Re: High Score Book

Ha, at first I thought you were going to say that you bought the book "High Score" (https://www.amazon.com/dp/0072231726/), which is the best coffee table book ever made about video games IMO. Maybe next time... But this book of yours is very cool too. How far back to these scores date? i....

Re: H1Z1: Battle Royale

Interesting. Hadn't heard about this one, so I'll have to give it a look. It was my understanding that PUBG was releasing as a limited exclusive for Xbox One (probably a deal between the developer and Microsoft), so I wouldn't expect to see it on PS4 any earlier than late 2018 (but probably not unti...

Re: 2018/5/26: NES: Log Jammers

Never heard of this one - thanks for the tip! And I was glad to see the Windjammers reference... As I was reading the review, I kept thinking "this sounds exactly like Windjammers..." I figured that one wouldn't slip by you, and then I saw your reference to it. Now that I think of it, I wo...

Re: is it worth it to buy the nintendo switch now ?

A few posters have mentioned indie games here. While Nintendo does a better job promoting them, most of the good indie games are already on PS4. The Switch has a few good indie exclusives (Golf Story comes to mind), but the PS4 has way more at the moment. I think most serious gamers would benefit fr...
