Goddamn, everything about Splatoon is like a manifestation of the early 2000's. I'm not even gonna play the game, because I really don't care about shooters on consoles, but I still love watching everything about it just for the massive wave of nostalgia that hits me everytime I see it.
>>194979 >I really don't care about shooters on consoles, I don't care about shooters *at all*, and I can say that Splatoon is incredibly fun even so. I got it as part of the packaged-in Wii U bundle thing, so I figured I would give it a try, and it's tons of fun. It's not really like a standard shooter since you're not trying to kill opponents, and that makes a big difference in how the thing plays and feels. It's less about twitch reflexes and more about strategy.
Well, those who were against the idea of paid mods can smile: http://steamcommunity.com/games/SteamWorkshop/announcements/detail/208632365253244218 http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/04/27/valve-axes-paid-skyrim-mods
It was visible from the beginning, but now it's just blatant. Sony does not give a shit. If Sony wanted, they could have ordered the development and release of many great titled on PSP 2.0. With the system's power in the right hands, most games could be developed for/ported to it. Vita has enough power to handle most games that aren't TOO big or TOO long.
But Sony is not supporting the system, and I think it is a very deliberate move on their part. Is it because they fear the PS4 will fail if they won't delegate ALL resources to it? I want to know what you think (if you give a fuck to think).
>>194288 Yea a format was better than their myriad of Storage Media they attempted in the run up to MP3 Device Standardization and their replacement by phones and tablets.
And really that kinda game is fine when its new to market and their competitor hasn't been out there for over twenty years with successful handhelds. Really if the VITA had used standard MicroSD Memory Cards . It would have been a much harder choice between the two handhelds.
>>194292 That just means they hadn't developed a "reasonable" competitor to CDs/DVDs at the time. Also, part of their reason for supporting DVDs was that it made the PS2 one of the cheapest DVD players on the market at release and so helped to sell a lot more.
>>194285 >>194499 Hmm, as I thought it's a shoop. Title is cribbed from the Bayonetta 2 review and such and such. Not that Polygon doesn't have serious issues with self-righteousness, and their Xenoblade 3D review is pretty meh, suffers from blog-level tone and I'm already spotting a few outright errors in it.

>>193071 Between two Smash Bros (fun to play, not really to watch especially with how long sets go), Killer Instinct (tryhard inbuilt hype and general awkwardness), and Tekken 7 and MKX being way too new for mainstage (clunky unfamiliarity) means this is going to be a very sleepy EVO.
>>193074 Scalping in the US is pretty bad. Little Mac for instance goes for around $50 now. When Nintendo says "limited edition" they REALLY mean it. Unless it's Pikachu and Pario, almost all of the figures are being sold for far more than their MSRP.
Hearing about the ten year deal for the game makes me feel something similar happened with StarCraft 2, so when is part 3 due out for that anyway? or does anyone still care or remember it's in three parts to get the whole story equal time.
And maybe they could have gotten the point across better if they had more video time for the reviews. Like Joe here; //youtube.com/watch?v=gzopWRXK_r4 Got all the bugbears out. Also I like the multiplayer so Im good. But guess who missed out on that~

Dragon Age Keep is out, wanna have a Dragon Age General to talk about it or the game it is creating a story choice file for? Anyone have any strong feelings about it? I'm undecided if I'm actually gonna get Inquisition but this thing still seems pretty interesting.
I'm kind of lost on the DA2 section choices though, never played it since it was awful. Surely some of the rest of you must be in the same situation when it comes to that.
>>191461 Please, that kind of political gaming is so weak, there's no need to say "You're loyal to us but don't even know it!". That kind of lame reasoning only leads to corrupt practice like what GamerGate supposedly organized to prevent. Just let the handful of people who care support to the degree they want to. Gamergate is an arbitrary affiliation and can easily get replaced if something filling its purpose is needed again.
