Phatosaurus commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

@belmont With the current stagnation of console hardware holding back graphical progression, gaming PCs rarely need upgrading, providing you buy smart in the first place.

The only reason to upgrade past say, an i5 and a 560Ti is if you wanted to run games past 1920x1080 at 60FPS or more. Which is kinda niche for the average PC gamer.



Phatosaurus commented on Soapbox: Even With The Arrival Of PS4 And Xbox...:

@Ispheria I read it but the point still stands, he's a NintendoLife writer writing an article for NintendoLife pimping out the Nintendo Wii U vs the PS4/Xbox One.
It is a biased article.

I made no mention of graphics, but I agree with you on that.
I feel we have hit a point now where graphics are "good enough" (I honestly thought we hit the point with the 6th gen consoles).



Phatosaurus commented on Fan Campaign for Bayonetta Wii U Release Kicks...:

I'm doing my part already. I encourage you all to make and Yeah as many posts as you can on Miiverse, tweet to Nintendo/Sega in twitter and do whatever on Facebook.

I see Miiverse being much more influential over Ninty than FB/Twitter though, so if you can only do one thing, support this campaign on Miiverse.

~EDIT: Don't forget to sign this for good measure.



Phatosaurus commented on We're Getting Digital Right On 3DS And Wii U, ...:

I like their approach to digital pricing on the WiiU eShop. Most games lately have been the same price or cheaper than retail. That's great.

The lack of a proper account system still holds me back buying anything other than digital only indie games from the store.



Phatosaurus commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Limited Hard Drive ...:

Make future installs optional. That way, the people without external HDDs may have to sit through longer loading times but they won't be left unable to play the game.
Those with external HDDs will be able to play the game as intended.



Phatosaurus commented on Talking Point: Warren Spector Asks, Where Are ...:

Games are a strange medium.

Films have a variety of genres. Horror, thriller, animated, musical, ect. all targeted to different audiences.
Books have a variety of genres too, all targeted to different audiences like films are.
Music, again has a variety of genres for different people and targeted towards different people.

Games, as the developer/publisher see them, have only ONE audience they want to sell to anymore.
The CoD audience.
It seems every genre in gaming over the last 10 years has been melted down and molded into a shooter of some sort to attract more sales.

For example, survival/horror games are almost a thing of the past. When a good one does come around, it gets panned by reviewers for being too challenging.
Instead, we now have "spook shooters" where you go around shooting enemies like any other game until something pops out goes "BOO!".

It's funny/sad too since the majority of the CoD audience is quite happy playing CoD.
So the developers/publishers **** on their existing fanbase to make a game for another fanbase that doesn't even want to play their game.
