I hate the fact that it ended up on Wii U, but I can't blame Platinum if Nintendo were the only people willing to bankroll it. I just wish that someone else had stepped in so they could have done a PS4 and Xbone launch and didn't have to make the awkward leap from being a multiplatform title to being a Wii U… » 10/01/14 12:09pm Today 12:09pm

Damn. I thought this show was going to be mediocre back when I first saw the trailer and couldn't understand why people were losing their minds over it, but I didn't think it would be that bad. Looks like I'm going to have to keep waiting for another epic mecha drama » 9/21/14 12:03pm 9/21/14 12:03pm

I'm tempted to get into the Souls series, but I'm still really hesitant. I own the PC version of Dark Souls, and the half hour or so I played of it didn't draw me in much. It felt like a decent'ish third-person action game that wasn't too hard until I suddenly got thrown into a room with a giant monster and… » 9/18/14 9:22pm 9/18/14 9:22pm

I'm sure most people wouldn't mind if you sent them a request, especially if you mentioned that you were from TAY. I'll be getting a PS4 and Destiny in a couple days, feel free to add me if you want; my PSN is JesterMecha, and I'm looking to find some TAY'ers to play with as well, since I don't know many people in… » 9/14/14 3:22am 9/14/14 3:22am

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. It's not the best game in the world, but I've been bored out of my mind lately waiting for my PS4 to come and school to start in a few weeks. It's reasonably enjoyable, but I can't help but feel this would have been a much better game if they had made the combat deeper and added more… » 9/13/14 3:58pm 9/13/14 3:58pm

Reading this actually convinced me to buy Metro Redux if it goes on sale for PC sometime this holiday season. I played the first thirty minutes or so of Metro 2033 a while back but I found it too rough around the edges to convince me to keep playing, but I would be more than willing to give a remastered version of it… » 9/12/14 10:06pm 9/12/14 10:06pm

Videogames, Visual Novels, Walkthroughs, and True Endings

If you've played enough video-games, you've undoubtedly run across games that feature "true" endings. These are usually the endings that eclipse all other endings in the game and are generally the canon ending. After having played through a few video-games and visual novels lately that featured true endings, I got… » 9/10/14 9:58pm 9/10/14 9:58pm

Great to hear that they got rid of the repetition that ruined the original Arena story, but I'll still probably read a wiki summary of the story instead of playing through it. They put more effort into the Arena story than they do most fighters, but at the end of the day it was still a convoluted and poorly paced… » 9/09/14 12:43pm 9/09/14 12:43pm

I played the first Dissidia game and I couldn't figure out for the life of me why people liked it. It felt like a semi-decent fighting game that had been married to some pointless RPG elements and had a garbage story thrown in (it didn't help that I had no idea who half the characters were). Needless to say, it… » 9/07/14 10:47pm 9/07/14 10:47pm

Fantastic idea, this will make it a lot easier to find cool people to play with, especially for the six-person no-matchmaking missions. I don't know anyone in real life who will be buying Destiny on PS4 in particular, so hopefully I'll find some TAY'ers to join up and play with. » 9/06/14 9:14pm 9/06/14 9:14pm

This looks like the best Call of Duty in years. All the little additions like boost dodging and hovering should make it play a lot differently than the old ones, which will be a welcome change in my book. I'm not the biggest fan in the world of Call of Duty's multiplayer, but it looks like this could be the perfect… » 9/04/14 3:47pm 9/04/14 3:47pm

To be honest, I've been wanting a really good Gundam game for years now, but I have yet to find one that even looks remotely interesting. The vast majority of the ones I see are mashups of various Gundam series or very mediocre/low budget games based off of existing series. » 9/03/14 12:39am 9/03/14 12:39am

Huh, that's actually a pretty novel idea for charging controllers. With my current setup, I'm out of shelf space to put a charging station on, so I thought I'd be forced to put a charger for my Dualshock 4s on the floor once I bought a PS4. With the Nyko charge station, I might be able to avoid that. I especially like… » 9/02/14 4:58pm 9/02/14 4:58pm
