I do think the Xbox One has a lot of flaws but it is worth noting that Sony has been cagey on quite a few PS4 details too, like they haven’t outlined their used game policy as far as I’m aware, and it too has a camera, which is used to determine which controller you are using through the Move sensor, so it may also have to be “always on”.
They have confirmed it hasn’t got the bizarre “connect to the internet every 24 hours” thing though, and in general it has been marketed as more of a games machine than the all-purpose thing Microsoft is going for, but yeah, don’t count on the PS4 being totally perfect in comparison since there’s still stuff we don’t know.
there’s actually going to be a developer discussion of Pokemon X and Y at E3, something that rarely if ever happens, I’m pretty sure they usually keep to Japanese magazines or events. Guess it just highlights how global they plan on the games being.
dangeroustogo asked: If you ever need party to play Borderlands 2, you can ask me. Right now I suffer from the same problem, heh.
I’ll keep that in mind!
Not sure when it will be though, I’m working through my backlog a bit before E3 happens
dangeroustogo asked: What's your opinion on Borderlands games?
I haven’t gotten around to playing them yet but they’re in my pipeline
graphically I think they’re very cool and distinct and I always like it when an FPS doesn’t fall into the brown and grey “style”, although from what I’ve heard its not strictly an FPS and is more RPG with exploration
I’ve also heard it’s better played co-op so chances are when I get around to it I’ll have to arrange that too
one thing that I don’t like about them though and its a behind the scenes thing is the whole speculation that Gearbox took the money they were given for Aliens: Colonial Marines and put it into the development of Borderlands 2, but I’m not strictly sure what the true word is on that. And I wasn’t exactly going to pick up an Aliens game anyway so its no big loss it just makes me wonder where Gearbox’s priorities lie.
ask me about video games if you want a 4-7 paragraph essay on why said video games are neat
monobear-theater asked: ok, after playing thearthrythm i decided to give the series a chance again because wow music wow. ive decided to start with FFVI but what do you recommend?
really the big 2 that I’d say are nearest and dearest to my heart are FFVII and FFIX, the former may take a while warming up to since it hasn’t aged well graphically and the story might be a little cliche now, but I’d honestly say IX is almost timeless. Both also have my favourite soundtracks out of all the FF’s.
there’s also FFV if you want to get into the Job system but don’t want to fiddle around with the more basic FFI-III games, and it’s also one of the funnier more laid-back games in terms of story
IV and X I don’t have as much of a connection to but they are still fun so long as you try to accept X’s sometimes iffy voice acting
and then there is VIII, XI, XII, XIII and XIV, all of which have their fans and all basically depend on playing them to see if you’re ok with where they go and what they do
and then there’s the spin offs like the Compilation of FFVII but ask about those when you complete their respective prequels/sequels
and since I know you like Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy Tactics for the PS1/PSP is a definite recommend
(and personally I’m not the biggest fan of FFVI but it’s been a while since I played it and lots of people say its the most amazing thing ever so yeah)
