The distrust seems universal. Looking at these pics, I do think they are shooting the exact same woman, over and over again. But I do not think that's any different than what many of us have seen in the United States. Does that make it right? Of course not. But pretty people are pretty ... even in bad weather. » 7/23/14 6:51am Today 6:51am

In spite of myself, I've gotten sort of addicted to this stupid game. The story sucks. The voice acting is mediocre. Chat support beyond two other players isn't even an option (which really bugs me). 1080p aside, the graphics are last-gen (even on next-gen consoles). The framerate ranges from 30FPS (which is pretty… » 7/22/14 7:11pm Yesterday 7:11pm

Ah ... I HATE that this is now separate from Kotaku. Can no longer recommend a game or deal specifically after the deal now. Have to just comment below, where what I write gets buried, unless I'm one of the first commenters, which I almost never am as I am working when deals are first posted. » 7/18/14 8:49pm Friday 8:49pm

Same with PS4, already. Party chat destroyed multiplayer. Imagine the people who just started online gaming with Xbone and PS4. Who are they going to "party chat" with? The people I party chat with are people I met playing games back when "regular chat" was the way chatting in multiplayer worked. » 7/18/14 8:36pm Friday 8:36pm

Sadly, it's the only thing about the game (at least the Beta) that's any good at all. Which may be why it's distracting. It's the only element worth noticing. This really, really feels like an MMO to me. And I'm sure anyone who buys it will be paying for it like it's an MMO (plus the $60 launch price and mandatory PSN… » 7/18/14 8:31pm Friday 8:31pm

The Falcon's was the clumsiest introduction in comic book movie history. Would anyone who didn't follow the comics even understand where this guy came from, how he joined the team and how he was suddenly flying around? Mickey Mouse Marvel sucks and ever since Disney bought the studio the movies have ranged from… » 7/17/14 2:09am 7/17/14 2:09am

I waited in line for 8 hours for The Phantom Menace. 4 for Attack of the Clones. I got to attend a critic's screening (as, at the time, I was a professional critic) of Revenge of the Sith, so only needed to be there 5 minutes ahead to get all the funky security stuff applied to my wrist and hand, as no one could know… » 7/12/14 8:34pm 7/12/14 8:34pm

Cerny created the awesome Knack. Which is still my favorite PS4 exclusive (which isn't saying much, thus far, for the PS4). That game shows he truly understood the console and played to its strengths. A Knack 2 announcement would please me greatly. But not as greatly as a GoW4 announcement. » 7/12/14 4:21am 7/12/14 4:21am
