    @sellingthings: Hence why I said IMO. I'm glad people enjoyed UC4 as much as they did, I wish I was in that group. UC2 was magical so I really wanted UC4 to reach those heights.

    @AzatiS: It's hard to diversify the core gameplay concepts of a team shooter - like how it's hard for any 2D platformer to be completely different from one another in its basest form. However, Overwat...

    @AzatiS: The gameplay options are all in the team-oriented mechanics. Every match is different based on what heroes are in use and who's playing them. I like OW far more than TF2, particularly in thei...

    Uncharted 4 was, IMO, not close to being the best game of the year. It's great but I wouldn't give it more than an 8. Doom, FFXV, Overwatch and Dark Souls III are to me far better contenders for GotY....

    @Hodax: Not everything is getting an eight, just the majority of the last 10 games. Those games simply deserve an 8 according to the reviewers, it's utter chance. An 8 is only devalued if "average" ga...

    @Xanitra: Personally it's my favorite along with Dark Souls (though Bloodborne is my favorite From Software game overall). I find Dark Souls 2 to be the worst, IMO. I also don't really see how you cou...

    @turianshepard: Not a problem, I think it's good to discuss these things from many angles. I do think Nier: Automata will be a very entertaining game, at least!

  • calvinsora posted a message on the post Nier: Automata Feels like a Platinum Games Classic.

    @turianshepard: I never get bent out of shape about it. I can recognize exploitation without getting bothered by it. Like I mentioned above, this doesn't faze me or detract from the enjoyment I get fo...

    @PS2fweak: It was a immature on my part saying that the character designers were in turn immature, I apologize for that. I tend to extrapolate my points when typing fast on my mobile. It doesn't actua...

    @PS2fweak: Wow, thanks for a polite and well-argued reply. Genuinely. I understand your point. Personally, for instance, I find Bayonetta's design was appropriate for the context. Kudos.

  • calvinsora posted a message on the post Nier: Automata Feels like a Platinum Games Classic.

    @turianshepard: So scantily clad women are a form of artistic expression? It's pandering, nothing more. I love PG, and Bayo had a specific wardrobe for a reason and was never all that exploitative. Ca...

    @turianshepard: You act as if this portrayal of characters is something of any artistic value. Here's hoping the character designers actually mature a bit and stop pandering to archaic, outdated expec...

    @turianshepard: I love Platinum Games, I will buy the game. However, the point is still valid, considering we are in a comments section.

  • calvinsora posted a message on the post Nier: Automata Feels like a Platinum Games Classic.

    @PS2fweak: It has nothing to do with insecurities or art. He's criticizing their portrayal of characters, not proposing restrictions. That's your interpretation and yours alone.

  • calvinsora posted a message on the post Nier: Automata Feels like a Platinum Games Classic.

    @putaspongeon: Nothing wrong with wanting non-exploitative representations of characters. Pointing that out doesn't ruin anything.

    @metallinatus: Super Mario Galaxy 2 was released in 2010, so it was only 4 years since a game got that score. For the record, SMG2 didn't win that year either, since it's like nomaskedhero explains a ...

    Though MGSV is my game of the year so far, Witcher 3 is a very, very close second. Bloodborne is in third and Super Mario Maker is next on my list of Wii U games to play along with Xenoblade Chronicl...

    A Link Between Worlds was a 2013 release, not 2011.Anyway, I was never a fan of the multiplayer LoZ, so this isn't a surprise to me. Can't wait to play Zelda Wii U, though.
