I'm not sure how I feel about Batman Arkham Origins.

i am not going to get it, its a good game but a title that can be rented.

The game does have its moments, but just some aspects of the game aggravate me about it, such as harder aggression coming from the enemies or that they can somehow punch or kick faster. The **** is that BS?

Agree, that aspect is so annoying that it drives me insane , especially in a combo situation because the game forces you to just sit and smash buttons and do it faster than the ai. i never liked that combat and i kinda wish they would take a page out of Sleeping dogs and a bit from Remember Me´s book on that kind of fight style.

I got Valkyria Chronicles yesterday and I have begun playing it. From what I know so far from doing so, it is a fun game. I might review it if I like it enough to beat it.

The faster than you punches aggravate me so much. They even punch faster when you're in focus mode! When was that a thing? Worse still is that fact that some snipers can see you through buildings and follow you around the map after seeing you just once.

That sucks about the sniper thing. Must be a weird bug, I didn't encounter that on PC.

But yeah, I'm not sure if it was intended to be this way, but it makes sense as an origin story that Bruce is not as skilled in combat yet. Once you get freeflow and especially freeflow + gauntlets you can mow down a room in a no time, but you have to be pretty counter heavy in the beginning of combat sequences.

Oh don't get me started on the snipers. I gave up on the game for last night because there's too many of them now. So you can use a smoke pellet to escape from one, but even that same one can still follow you and shoot you. I find that to be incredibly ridiculous. I can understand if they showed up early on new game +/hard mode, but on normal mode? I expected them to be happening later in the game, like near the end, but this is incredibly stupid. It's like I can't go anywhere now, even if I fast travel and try to go to the next level. This is one of the worst things about the game.

As for Batman not starting out as well as he should in terms of combat...I GUESS, but by this time, Bruce should have learned how to be faster and smarter by this point, even if it's an early point in his career as the Batman.

I'll probably get Diablo 3 when it hits PS4 next year, myself. Looks good, just that when I have the option presented by cross generational games, I will always be going with the next gen choice.

Hopefully, for you, they release it way after launch. All these launch games releasing on both (next gen/this gen) platforms will always be made for the weaker (ie: current gen) system. Most you'll get right off the bat is likely better graphics but typically same game experience right now.

I have 30mb as well, and it's honestly pretty fantastic, but I'm really thinking hard about moving up to the elite regions. Might even go all the way to the 100mb package since I seem likely to get the Assistant Manager spot at the store.

They way these game file sizes keep going up, i may be forced to. I finally got internet that let me download games a few GB in size in an hour or two, and then just... boom. 38 to 50GB game downloads for digital versions of retail games, and I have quite the fondness at times for them, especially when they go on sale. (my PS3 game folder is pretty damn huge after the last year of Playstation Plus sales)

That's partially why I went for such high speeds. If games that large are going to become the standard, I want them to download as quickly as possible.

The sad thing I, and some of my friends, noticed is that the PS3 is so freaking slow for some reason downloading and installing games compared to the 360. Why on earth is that? Same freaking internet connection and all. Now when I want to download the free Plus games I leave it on overnight. Still just installing a game took me 45 insane minutes. That is ridiculous. It was the Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. I've downloaded bigger games on PS3 and they did not take near as long to install. (This really sucks since you can't do anything else until this is done)

I presume it's Sony's own awful netcode. Internet speeds seem to have no bearing on how fast things download from PSN. Really hoping they fix that with the PlayStation 4. They have no excuse not to.

That really sucks when you are forced to install like GTA V for example. Had I known that ahead of time I could have had it installing prior to sitting down in my recliner and getting nice and comfortable. Hell let us play some really cheap version of space invaders or something while we wait to pass the time at least.

No 2 console love?

I just realized I was getting nothing for my money(paying for live)and it ran out in March or April. Grabbed Plus and just decided one console at this time is plenty for me and all the free games. Though I've had to start deleting some. You'd think 250GB was a lot. Nope! 1TB HDD would be good. $80 on newegg. I'm seriously considering it.

To get ready for Killzone: Shadowfall, I decided to give Killzone 2 another chance. I know this might sound ridiculous, but the first time I started KZ2, I saw I was on the same side as a man named Templar. I did not want to continue playing because I was playing one of the Assassin's Creed games at the time and that would have made my experience with it and games in general less immersive. Over one year later and after Assassin's Creed III, I do not mind fight in on the same side as a guy with that name. So far, I am not hating it.

When I first started KZ2, there was a man named Templar and I had finished playing an Assassin's Creed game and enjoyed it. My thought was that being on the same side as someone with such a name would make my experience with AC and maybe even games in general less immersive, so I stopped. One year later and after Assassin's Creed III, I do not mind fighting on the same side as him. So far, I am not disliking it. >_>

I am nearly done with my first playthrough of Killzone 2 and I must say that it is the first game on the PS3 I have played which takes advantage of its features the way it does. If I could recommend one PS3 game to show what that console is capable out of all that I have played, it would be that one.

I currently own the game on Xbox 360, but I'll be picking it up on the PS4 and trading it in what that happens. The PS4 seems to have a lot more features than the Xbox 360 version does. In fact, I read an interview over on IGN about what features they are and some of them looked basic, but the one I liked the most was Avenger Kills. The idea being is that there's a certain monster, in your world, that kills you with their last hit and they jump through a portal. If I play my game, that same monster could come into my world with a message from you, saying something like "This monster has been hunting you." You kill that monster successfully and not only do I avenge you, but I apparently get a hell of a better portion of loot as well. Win win. Kinda cool, if you ask me.

I've played it extensively on the Xbox 360 and have beaten it with several classes by this point. In my opinion, since the PS4 is going to launch and Diablo 3 is coming in early 2014, I would hold off until then. There's going to be more features and I think a new class and some new characters that will help out with enchantments and stuff like that, I believe.

Every day I wake up, about a quarter of the front page is spam, and it takes hours for them to be dealt with. Seriously, guys, you need to go back to the mod forum and have a serious conversation with whoever the current forums admin is, (the fact that a lot of us don't even know who that might be says a lot in and of itself) because this is killing the forums. Why bother posting when your post gets buried after just a few hours by spam posts pushing it down the page? When you log on and see a dozen or so of those damned things, it just makes you want to not even bother and just go find somewhere else to be.

If moderators are not active in the community, remove their status and replace them, prioritizing getting a good spread across timezones. It's starting to feel like GS staff has simply decided to abandon it's own forums and ignore the problem. It's not like they are hard to detect either, I can usually tell from the thread title, or user name. I know it's the holidays and it's a busy work time, Christ, I manage a grocery store... believe me, I know. But if I had a dozen people coming into my store every morning at opening and taking a shit on my floors, I wouldn't ignore it because I'm so busy with other things.

The forums are important, I'd like to see them treated as such. I give the GS staff hell about this because I really want them to actually show up and prove me wrong, that is, if they can tear themselves away from posting at Neogaf long enough to even bother.
