Sad but true, I can really see consoles just going with the path of Apple like their iPhone a to z.

And EA's still being an ass, I see.

Yeah...
And did you really expect anything else from EA?

It would be more of a surprise for him to be a nice guy and do something decent, but we all know that ain’t happening.

If I had to rank worst to best in my opinion it would be

EA
Konami
Activision-Blizzard
Bethesda & Ubisoft tied
Microsoft
Sony
Nintendo (except for the YouTube policy, that’s down there with Microsoft in regards to anti consumerism)
Devolver Digital

Sounds about right... and Devolver are pretty great, yeah!

The still funny thing about Nintendo is that in the past they won all those court cases heavily stacked against them and objectively unfair (like the one with Universal) but fast forward years later and they made some very similar attempts at plenty of people or gamers like the YouTube policing you mentioned.

Still. If you have to put them on a scale then their evils are still relatively light compared to most other companies.

For a second, I thought this all actually happened. Well done.

by Zanreo at 16th Feb 2018, 11:45 AM

Wouldn't be surprised to see things like these actually happen...

An announcement came out for Nintendo’s Labour detailing more about it. I think now there’s a lot more depth to it than people gave it credit for.

by Zanreo at 16th Feb 2018, 11:48 AM

I saw, yeah! Looks pretty cool...

I think Konami is going to shock everyone in another way. They will announce something related to their old classics and it is going to look good and then they are going to eff it up so damn much on purpose... :D

Ha! EA even said that micros are there to stay and the right system in games nowadays. Or was that Ubisoft? Not sure.
Nobody is stupid enough to think they are not going to re-introduce lootboxes masked as something else. The industry loves them now and does not want to walk away from anything generating cash.
But at the end of the day... People have a choice and people keep buying. What else is new? Gamers want their digital skins and stuff. But that fiasco was borderline gambling :/

Ah yes, the in-between generation upgrades and "deluxe" models. Meanwhile, here I am still playing on the original 3DS because I ain't buying the same darn game system twice if the older one still works.

by Zanreo at 3rd Apr 2018, 12:24 PM

Yeah, I'm in no rush to get a PS4 Pro myself when my original "old" PS4 will still be able play all PS4 games to be released in the future... (I admit I did get a New 3DS though... for the different covers)

Any thoughts on the Sony fanboys who are salty Bayonetta isn’t coming to PS4?

by Zanreo at 3rd Apr 2018, 12:22 PM

I can kind of understand how you'd be annoyed a series that's been on "your" console first suddenly switches (no pun intended) but the way it is now, Nintendo decided to publish the sequel so it's kind of thanks to them it exists at all and the series would now be considered a "Nintendo-published" title... as for a PS4 remake of the first game? That would at least seem somewhat more plausible...

I'd buy the Sega Galaxy.

by Zanreo at 3rd Apr 2018, 12:22 PM

Yeah, if Sega released a new console I'd check it out at least
