  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic How The Evil Within Fails at Horror (IGN) on the System Wars board

    Maybe this criticism comes from comparisons to things like Amnesia. By that standard, anything with guns is insufficient. Personally, I really enjoy some of the horror games that let you shoot. De...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Why Wii U failed? on the System Wars board

    Price too high is due to the controller, so the two choices are directly related. If Nintendo could show people why they went with the controller, they could really turn things around, but they didn...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Launch Games: Your Favorite, and Least Favorite. YALALALA on the System Wars board

    I adored Dead RIsing 3, which was a surprise as I didn't care for the other games in the series. On the 360 I loved Perfect Dark Zero. I know people hated on it but if you tried to play through the...

    When they announce the price drop at E3.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic The Wii U portable advantage: Lol I never thought of this on the System Wars board

    Don't play my Wii U at home much less on the road. Nice that people who like the games have a pseudo-portable option, though.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Xbox One passes 5 million units*!! on the System Wars board

    They have hinted at a price drop announcement at E3 in a couple of months, so that should make things a lot more interesting. They didn't say price drop per se... they said "Changes that will make e...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic high expectation for new AC game? on the System Wars board

    Not so much, no. I think that in an effort to keep annual releases and re-use assets they already have, they played it safe with the French revolution setting. I am sick of tri-corner hats. I like...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Last gen console you had the most fun with? on the System Wars board

    I liked the PS3 and the Xbox 360 about the same, but I give the 360 the edge because the multiplayer experience was vastly superior, and I just used it a lot more for multiplats and various non-gami...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Metal Gear Solid Order on the PlayStation Discussion board

    Since I had already played the games in the order of their release, I thought it might add something to the story to play them in timeline rather than release order. In my opinion, it did. MGS4's ...

    And yet I still have no idea what the game is all about.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Metal Gear Solid Order on the PlayStation Discussion board

    Kojima doesn't consider it cannon, so I would avoid it and not lose any sleep over passing on Portable Ops. I'm currently almost done replaying all the MGS games too, actually. I'm on Act 3 of 5 in MG...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic TLOU graphical update is huge. on the System Wars board

    If they had announced a PS4 version at or around launch of the PS3 version, I would have waited. Am I the only one who is bemused at the secrecy surrounding this PS4 release? They said they started...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Why I Love The Last of Us on the PlayStation Discussion board

    This is well and good, and I like to gush on about games I like too, but I recommend blogging this lengthy love letter. Seriously... copy and paste it into a blog entry. Not being harsh... just thin...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Disapointed with PS4 on the PlayStation Discussion board

    Just like the PS3 was missing a lot of things at launch, the PS4 will continue to improve. Not as fast as the Xbox One has been doling out updates, but then again, I think that the PS3 had several l...

    Brought to you by the Foreboding Black Letterbox Bars Association. I haven't enjoyed the F.B.L.B.'s fine work this much since Dragon's Dogma.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic i must admit Phil Spencer tune sounds fresh PART 2 on the System Wars board

    Watching that made me remember that E3 is coming up soon. That's exciting. After last year's train wreck, I predict the Xbox One presentation is going to hit a home run this year. I bet they are a...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Titanfall 1 month in. on the System Wars board

    I played it a lot until I got my hands on ground zeroes.... that inspired me to go revisit the mgs series again. I'm almost done, though, and I look forward to returning to Titanfall. I hope the ne...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Games you preordered for this year on the System Wars board

    I've gone digital, and I've noticed an alarming trend where you can't preorder things like Titanfall or Ground Zeroes. So unless this trend changes, I won't be preordering much at all anymore. I us...
