  1. I enjoyed this game a lot, as well. Although, I didn't play it on the hardest difficulty. However, I did find that it lost it's intensity when I got the shotgun. With the amount of guns and ammo, I felt like Superman, and that necessarily a good feeling. I mean, I was under the impression that Tomb Raider was going to be more focused on survival, but the gameplay proved otherwise.
  2. I haven't been that up on anime as of late. However here are the ones I've watched over the years: Dragonball Z Fist of the North Star G-Gundam Digimon Sailor Moon Blue Gender Neon Genesis Evangellion I started Full Metal Alchemist, but I fell off. I'll have to try it again. I'm also interested in Trigun, Attack on Titan, and Gunslinger Girl.
  3. Thanks a lot!
  4. I'm not trying to troll in any way here, but does it really matter what has the better release? 'Good releases' are determined by how much the company stands to make from however many people decide to drop their hard-earned money on it. We are the ones spending the money, they are the ones making it. This isn't to say that I won't be getting either because I will own both at some point, but that is a ways away. I'm of the opinion that gamers should be less concerned with how well the release goes and focus more on the quality of each system and what their strengths and weaknesses are. I've seen plenty of gamers base their purchase of a game/console/accessory on how many have sold or how much money that company brought in from that product. The art of a good customer is to see what attributes you will enjoy the most from that product and make your decision from that. Unless you just have money to blow. In that case, disregard everything I said here and make it rain on those consoles.
  5. I'm pretty that anything Halo 5-related won't be announced for about a year. It's likely that when they showed the trailer, they had no plans of saying anything else about it until VGA 2013 or E3 2014. When the teaser came out, it was too soon after Halo 4 to start advertising a new game in the series... especially since Spartan Ops hadn't ended yet.
  6. The problem I have with the next gen stuff is that I'm less attracted to this gen than the previous gen. With the Xbox 360 and PS3, the main emphasis was on gaming with added extras as an aside. With the Xbox One and PS4, the focus is still on gaming, but I sense a slight shift toward other forms of entertainment. I buy my video game console to play video games, and while Netflix is cool, it's not what I bought the console for. The Wii U is a different story. I've played it multiple times for multiple games and nothing about it makes me say, "I want this in my life." I see the Wii U as a redesigned Wii with an adding tablet peripheral. I've gotten flak for that, but I will not change my opinion, nor will I apologize. I have yet to find anything about the Wii U that is appealing to me, and it certainly doesn't scream 'next generation' either. The tablet controller is the big thing that is different about the console, but it's a pain in the butt trying to look back and forth from my television to the tablet. It completely takes me out of the experience. In addition, Nintendo tried to market the Wii U to older audiences and hard-core gamers while still hanging onto younger audiences. I wouldn't have a problem with this except for the fact that the games that were brought to the Wii U were games that we had already played, beat, and moved on from. Battlefield 3. Mass Effect 3. Assassin's Creed 3. Far Cry 3. Batman: Arkham City. The list goes on, but the point is that, along with not really bringing any new tech to the table, the Wii U had old games (so to speak). We got our hands on these games already. Where is the new stuff, Nintendo? Oh. Another Mario game? Donkey Kong? Zelda? Hooray... This isn't to say that games like Madden, Fifa, and Call of Duty haven't been rehashed a bunch of times, but at least the other consoles make it look like they're trying something new (even if we've probably played the same game a year ago... just with a different title). The Xbox One is loaded with features that I don't care too much about. The tech within it is cool, but that was the first thing that was marketed to us in terms of its reveal. They Microsoft is trying to create an all-in-one experience which would be cool if that were the reason we love them. We love them because they make decent computers and decent gaming systems, not entertainment centers. The PS4 seems to be the most successful and for good reason. They focused on promoting the games. Games. Games. Games. Games. From the first reveal where they didn't show us the console, to E3 where they showed us the console, it was all about the games. The streaming services (movies, television, etc.) came in as a smaller part of the presentation, and then it was right back to the games. And they showed us the upgraded graphics on those games along with the sleek control players had over those games. Keep in mind that this isn't a big upgrade from the previous generation by much, but Sony did it right in terms of marketing. However, when I do get into the next generation, I will most likely buy the Playstation 4 first. I'll get the Xbox One mainly for the continuation of the Halo series and Forza. And the Wii U... *sigh* I'll buy it because I have a tremendous love for Super Smash Bros, but I can't say I want it for anything else. So, I will be getting the Wii U very cheap. Those are my long-winded thoughts on the next generation.
  7. I voted 'When I Feel Like It' for a few reasons. 1) I don't have the money for next gen stuff. I'm going to wait until the prices go down a bit; then I'll work on a plan to buy. 2) I don't think it's good to buy it when it first comes out since there are bound to be glaring hardware glitches. Waiting a little while gives you a better chance of not having to deal with those glitches because they will have been fixed by the company. 3) When consoles first come out, the game selection isn't that big. Most of the games that are advertised for the next generation platforms won't even be out for another year or so... and those are the games I really want to get the console for. Why not wait until then? Reasons 1 and 2 might be fulfilled just by following #3.
  8. I'd say to work on both, but slowly cease working on the previous generation stuff. This is what they've done for the rest of the generations; wrap up last gen projects and slowly work on new projects for the next gen. Then, phase the previous generation out completely. That's how Dad did it. That's how America does it... and it's worked out pretty well so far.
  9. I absolutely love the morph gun from Jak 2 and Jak 3.
  10. It's about time! I'm guessing it'll be exclusively for the next gen. I totally failed at Fallout 3, but I loved Skyrim. Bethesda does a good job with RPGs and I'm hoping I can get into this one.
  11. Gamers! Vernon here! It's been suggested that I join the Angry Joe army, so I'm giving it a shot. I actually agree with some of the things he has to say on Youtube, so this should be interesting. I am writer and a video content creator. Check out my channel, vtuittt3. I haven't published much to my channel as of late because I have been working on something else. It's a weekly news segment called Gaming Bytes that is featured on holdtheline.com, as well as their Youtube channel. It's a fun project and I hope to eventually incorporate video games reviews into it, as well. Perhaps, if it gets popular, people will want to donate money to the site so we can buy games to review. Other than that, I love comics books (Earth 1610 is a personal favorite of mine ) and a bunch of other things. In terms of gaming, I mostly game on Steam because I had to sell my Xbox 360 earlier this year. I hope to get another one, and I am also interested in getting a PS3, Wii, PS Vita, and a 3DS. I can wait on the next gen stuff until it drops in price and when there are more games to choose from. I'm also looking to build a retro gaming collection including gaming consoles and gaming classics from previous gaming generations. Maybe some folks want to donate some stuff to my efforts.... The only limitation is money since I use what I make for bills and... you know... living. But feel free to seek me out and talk to me! I love meeting new people and believe that learning comes through experiences with other people! Thanks for reading! Vernon Tuitt III
