@creepywelps: This from that Japanese site where fans can review games and scored from F to A? Cause Japanese fans have ripped into top rated JRPGs and games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne too. Like, Bloodeborne is rated a D IIRC.

@The_Corinthian That's cool, you moved up to 10X speed but you'd still get major problems on high traffic sites because ISPs are throttling. It doesn't matter if you'd have 50gbps you could still hit such slow speeds because of ISPs doing this. Netflix even laid it all out that even those with the fastest speeds, still had issues with buffer and load speeds.


How much do you pay for your extra speed? now add addition cost on top of that just to watch Netflix. Do some actual research. The additional cost of fast lanes DO NOT ADD TO YOUR OVERALL SPEED TO ACCESS THE INTERNET, ONLY A SPECIFIC SERVICE AT ADDITIONAL COST. Think of it like a carpool lane. It's heavy traffic but you are not allowed to access those freed up lanes unless you have passengers aboard, only that in this case, if you have that extra bit of money. The thing about the internet though is that we shouldn't need fast lanes, we should have a better infrastructure and faster internet. That is something we do not have, and some companies like Comcast have OUTRIGHT SAID "people do not want faster internet."

@noladem504 Would have happened with the big companies since Comcast owns NBCUniversal. These ISPs you're defending were doing everything in their power to buy out anything they could to have dominate control over the media and were already very close to Hollywood. Seriously, go read up and get some facts or go back to Fox or Brietbart. Sheesh.

@The_Corinthian Clearly a lot of people who sent in emails to the FCC. You're ignorant if you'd pay for fast lanes. You wouldn't be getting faster internet overall, just for a couple of services like Netflix, Youtube and whatever else would fit within that package. Would you pay for each package on top of your current bill for gaming, video or high traffic sites you may often frequent? You'd be spending all of your money just to not have any buffer on a video when the internet as a whole should be fast to begin with and not throttle you or the service.

To make this clear, just for gaming alone, You''d be paying your monthly internet bill, the addition payment of having a fast lane for online gaming, and paying for PS+ or Xbox Live. Payment on top of payment, on top of payment. That is how the whole thing would have been set up.

@noladem504 Companies weren't doing that great either and couldn't self govern themselves to keep what they were doing going. Let's remember Comcast said that people don't want faster internet, let's remember that that the ISPs even keep startups from really happening and prevents competition by making deals with mayors. Let's remember that they were trying to create monopolies through mergers and reducing competition. And let's also remember the idea of fast lanes to where you'd buy the internet in packages similar to cable. They were doing things no one liked, especially the people who sent in mail to the FCC. The FCC was founded to regulate this sort of stuff but never did and it's about time they're finally doing their job.

@constantcritic @snow0 @klugenbeel @cerealzateu More games on more systems =/= more sales. If this were the case, the industry would look so much better than it does now and so many studios wouldn't have closed down over the decade.


You're also talking about Nintendo downsizing when you suggest going 3rd party, and the quality of their games could drop just as well because they wouldn't have the time to polish their games as they see fit.


Sega and Atari will always be brought up in these conversations as examples of hardware companies going 3rd party and the quality of their products diminishing. I should also remind you that Sega only had 4 games to show off this year at E3 compared to the previous year which was 5. The year before that was 7 and before that, 8. Sega is having to rely on their big franchises that they know will sell like Sonic, Yakuza and Project Diva.

@canuckbiker Their games are great and lately I've been thinking on how their games have been a success in a genre where Mario is king and others have long abandoned the genre except for small studios and indies. LPB for example exudes a lot of charm, personality and no cynicism. Same goes for the Lego games and they sell incredibly well. Most of the genres Nintendo excels at are games that exude a ton of charm, personality and no cynicism. Most other games like say Darksiders, is inspired by Zelda but it has about as much charm as God of War. It may borrow a lot of the mechanics but it doesn't feel that great. That goes for a lot of genres and clones in the industry. There's always that king like CoD but its clones always missing that something that makes it big and so few have actually managed to capture that feeling and succeed.


GTA is another series that is king but recently Saints Row has been becoming bigger because it captures a special type of charm and personality.

@tmthywtsn I didn't see watered down content. I saw engaging gameplay and new styles of gameplay. I saw a different take on the arena shooter genre with Splatoon and some of the gifs I've seen, we're already seeing advanced techniques being done. Meanwhile everywhere else I see homogenization of gameplay with tired old mechanics offering something that doesn't feel new but is actually more of the same. I was excited for LPB3, No Man's Sky but more than anything I was most excited for Grimfango's return. That says something that I was more excited for a 15 year old game to be brought back over everything else Sony and Microsoft showed.


We already had a new Donkey Kong and apparently Nintendo is planning something for Metroid both the 2D and 3D Metroid. F-zero, I would love to be brought back as well and Star Fox U is already in tech demo stages and they're working on it. Miyamoto even announced Star Fox and talked about it. He's even calling 2015 the year of Star Fox from that Entertainment Weekly article.

@AzatiS Seeing as the original Xenoblade has given me more than 200+ hours of gameplay and things to do and collect I imagine it's sequel will give me even more. I would think Xeno is a system seller.
