    @Jinzo_111887: think we can all agree that's shady also.It's also a slight against ND's/Sony's confidence in the product. If you think you made something great, put it out there and let people decide...

    @defiler: nah, that's not what I said.Communicating criticism is 100% fine when it's informed and intelligently expressed, and acknowledges the speaker's affinity or rejection of the content.Review bo...

    @Chizaqui: I agree with you when theres a technical misstep, such as loot boxes, DRM or MTX issues, but in the case of TLOU2 the problem is purely content driven.I dont think it's ok to bomb something...

    It's amazing to me the cognitive dissonance you see in this mob mentality.Before TLOU2 dropped, everyone basically believed Naught Dog was unassailable and awesome. They walked on water; any naysayin...

    @defiler: and on the other side of that same coin, they shouldnt have to expose themselves to unplacatable rage, hatred stemming from ignorance or bias toward the product.

    Theron was great in Fury Road, and I think Miller is taking a huge and relatively unnecessary risk here.He knows more about the medium than I ever will, so I'll hold my judgment. I am excited for thi...

    @hal_jordan121: I kinda feel like that's true of Fury Road as well though.Mad Max was in it well enough, but it could've worked without him just fine I think.

    @livedreamplay: except that's pretty much how markets evolve and adapt.I personally think AAA gaming is dying, and I think that's exciting if it makes development more accessible. AAA gaming destroys...

    @livedreamplay: I love how openly dismissive and condescending you are!Tools and skills to increase development productivity are constantly evolving and improving. That's in addition to simply choosi...

    @livedreamplay: "Beautiful, open worlds"There will continue to be a place for those games. And there will continue to be ways for developers to make them at lower cost than they are now. The "I don't ...

  • Richardthe3rd posted a message on the post Former PlayStation Boss Says AAA Game Development Is Unsustainable.

    @livedreamplay: Yep there's a market for those "games."There's also a market for titles that aren't like that. Look at Nintendo games like Mario Kart and Smash Bros.: both easily AAA games that don't...

  • Richardthe3rd posted a message on the post Former PlayStation Boss Says AAA Game Development Is Unsustainable.

    This is 100% a problem of their own making.I have zero empathy for them. Focusing on expensive cutscenes, expensive voice acting, and cinematic, non-gameplay garbage that makes games less about play...

    Those Batman movies werent great, but in retrospect they were a lot of fun. And Batman forever had a killer soundtrack (Dat U2 song FTW).He had fun with the medium and I enjoyed his stuff. May he re...

    @Barighm: the illusion of PC gaming complexity died over 10 years ago. Get with the times.And convenience is huge. Which is why PC is again a better choice, since every peripheral and a massive, gen...

    @johnny0779: Absolutely. 30FPS should be unacceptable in this gen.

  • Richardthe3rd posted a message on the post The PS5 Is A Big Console For A Good Reason.

    @johnny0779: I certainly agree with you. Sony gets cocky when they take a gen and rest on their lead, and they often get sniped. That looks to be the case here once again.Microsoft looks like it's goi...
