Your implication that I only own one system is way off the mark.
I see no reason to rush out and spend money on something I don't need or want - ala PS4 and Xbox One. Doesn't make me any less a dedicated gamer
This whole notion that you have to OWN any given system to put forward an informed opinion is pretty narrow minded.
So with that in mind having experienced Bloodborne for several hours I stand by my assertion that it is the best game on the PS4 I've played to date and is easily the best game this generation of consoles has had to offer so far.
I've recently found myself wanting to get away from more serious AAA games, and these two have helped me find some child-like innocence in games again. Something that doesn't feel like it's painted by numbers
hey were great.. 30 years ago. Right now they are just plain boring. As much as their flat graphics. They are all the same, just with a different background.
Still, no way that you can compare a lame 2D side scrollers with one of the best RPGs ever. It would just sound.. dumb!!
Not at all. I only said that IronSoldier used the 90% limit. But even if he used the 89% limit nothing would have changed.
I gave you my meter of judgement already, but I will specify it better just to be clear: any 2D game shouldn't get more than a 70%. With 3 points taken out by default. If the developers don't put the effort to make a 3D game in the third millennium, as far as I am concerned they can bugger off. Gimmi a third person view platformer Ori like and we'll discuss again.
On a serious note, its all swings and roundabouts to me, there is probably little difference, but its quite clear that Bloodborne is one of the best exclusives this gen.
Titles that are 86% are great, but in 5 years times Bloodborne will no doubt will still in that bracket of highly rated games of this gen, FH2 will not.
And Bloodborne has had less reviews, so unless it gets bashed to death that 93 could go higher if the current trend carries on.
It feels that I don't play 2D side scrollers. I don't care how flashy is the background. And I'm quite positive many feel like me.
PS: it has been IronSoldier using the 90% limit. Not my fault.
Is the title a valid subjective opinion? Yes.
Is it also intentional hyperbolic click bait? Yes.
Lighten up dude, you are allowed to be positive about the PS4 sometimes you know.
Regurgitating is not witty, but it's ok if you think it is. :cool:
You are, of course, entitled to your opinion. I disagree.
Which I just proved wrong, but I understand that it can be hard to see that with Microsoft-brand blinders on. :)
frazzl ignoring evidence presented and making up some facile argument or switching goalposts to claim he is right, when nothing else works.
Of late, my idea of open conversation had been to give others the benefit of the doubt (unless apparent otherwise from their post history), and not fling accusations right and left.
But, since it looks like this simple concept is beyond you, I'll make an exception for you and subscribe to the philosophy of "paranoid accusatory back-and-forth", which seems to be your byword.
Hey, it'll just be like arguing with yourself!
Man.the.king accusing others of things he is just as guilty of. Nothing new.
Sure buddy, you keep right on projecting. Whatever helps you feel better about yours. :D
EDIT: As I was commuting home today, a thought struck me, a minor epiphany, if you will. This back-and-forth has caused me to expend a lot of time and energy on my part (and probably you as well, though I wouldn't presume to tell you what to do with yours). This 'epiphany' caused me to question what I am doing on this forum, arguing with you.
I don't expect that you would change your opinions as I have never seen you admit a mistake or change your opinion (maybe it's in your DNA, I don't know), but even if you did, how does that benefit me? It doesn't.
A change of mind, of perspective, is what helps me grow, and I don't see any of that happening here for me. In which case, we are just flinging empty words (imo) back and forth that will not result in anything other than exhaustion. At least for me.
So, let me be the first to step back and let you have the final word.
As for TLOU - to a first-time observer, it may seem that he's praising something, but as anyone familiar with cloudskipa's posts will tell you, he DOESN'T praise anything to do with PS circa XBox, unless it's to damn it with faint praise in some way, which is what he has done here.
Yes, and? As if that changes the FACT that he praised Microsoft UNRESERVEDLY in another post in the same thread. :rolleyes:
Oh yeah, until late in this thread, I was holding back, trying to not hurt any feelings.
Open is what you asked for, OPEN is what you will get.
Sure buddy, whatever helps you feel better about yours. :D

I think I've played most if not all of the RR games and it has been a pretty solid series considering it's an arcade racer.
Ridge Racer Type-4 was technically very impressive on release with an excellent soundtrack to match. I couldn't believe the PS1 could push out graphics like that, the bonus disk remix of the original Ridge Racer in 60fps and higher resolution was also a lovely addition. Definitely a highlight.
Ridge Racer 64 on N64 was also a favouirte, perhaps the nolvelty of playing it from a cart helped but after the super polished Type 4 it seemed more like a return to it's roots.
I enjoyed RR7 and the PSP RR games, since they are pretty much identical from a gameplay standpoint but they maybe strayed a little too far from what I liked about the series, especially the handling. The introduction of nitro divided opinions too.
Probably my favourite out of them all is Ridge Racer V, not the sloppy PAL conversion but the beautiful NTSC release.
Ridge Racer Unbounded though... Still can't believe Edge gave that a 9/10.

@Faramis It definitely came out in the UK as I remember buying it when it came out.
It's a great game, as mentioned the atmosphere is the high point and the music was incredible. While it wasn't overall as good (or as epic) as FFVIII for me, I did enjoy the combat system a lot more it has to be said.

I like a lot of concepts in this game, the fungal element is a clever twist on the Zombie genre. Should be good but I'm anticipating State of Decay more that this, it's less linear and sounds like it could be the perfect Zombie game.
Sony got complacent with the PS3
with that lightning fast, custom developed Cell CPU, BR, BT, WiFi, HDMi, MemCard readers and full HW BC out of the box, I find it very difficult to agree there.
Customers and the press got stupid, is how I would describe the start of last gen.
In all the recent years I've been reading his post, I haven't seen anything neutral from him. If you have, you are one of the lucky ones.
Now that I don't have to worry about hurting your feelings by flinging it back at ya, I'm COMPLETELY fine with it.
Many more frank speeches from me to come...
Cool, now that I understand that your perspectives stem from entrenched brand loyalty, and can freely bring that up, we don't have an issue.
Except that he has, in the very thread where you brought up my talking to him.
Where skippy is concerned, cloudskipa has NEVER given any credit to PS, except to credit any bad things happening to his brand.
As I have already mentioned, there are worse classes of fanboys who take pleasure in others' existing misfortune purely based on the platform they own.
You want to disagree about that by saying that's my opinion, you want to claim that a hypothetical wishing of a brand to be gone is worse than reveling in ACTUAL harm done to a person, that's fine by me.
I'm not the one who goes on calling people "brand loyal" left and right. Certainly not based on one post.
Is this you being judgmental again?
No, just you again.
It would be tres hypocritical if you cared now. :D . Of course you don't.
Although you certainly lashed back with accusations of prejudice based on an imagined slight from me, which I never actually said. But sure, you don't care, then cool, we don't have an issue.
"My wife and I accept our responsibility in this. We should have paid much closer attention to his video gaming, and my son accepts his responsibility and punishment. [But] how many users legitimately spend thousands of dollars on in-app purchases and just how much usage would it actually take for [Microsoft] to flag this as unusual behaviour and require confirmation that the purchase is legitimate? Banks and credit card companies regularly do this.
