Favorite Franchises That Are Dead – CronoCast: A Playstation Podcast [#06]


What’s up everybody? I’m Conor side and welcome to episode 6 of croa cast a playstation podcast Krakus is a PlayStation exclusive podcast way out a talk with my co-host gave me the Freret aka Yay me about all things PlayStation yummy. How are you? Do oh one doin Great. How are you? It’s certainly some wonderful man. I’m doing great you Played any games this weekend or during the week. Well, I play what I was playing a lot more than Kawakami lay – Have you finished game yet? I Have not finished a game, but I can now change into a chicken at whim. Oh So it’s pretty much the same as the first game then yeah, but it’s a lot. It’s a lot of fun I’ve really been enjoying it lots of platforming challenges and all that. It’s a great game There’s a couple of games like that that are like Bill for me, but I haven’t played yet like soul night guacamelee – is one of them all night, which we’ll talk a bit more during the news and Yeah, there’s a couple of games like this that I didn’t but didn’t buy it yet, but it’s made for me So I don’t know what I’m doing with my life. Honestly, man. I know you got some backlash for shovel knight Yeah, right it’s game consoles right? Yeah, yeah, I Understand where what is saying to you? I don’t know man, but shovel knight is like a weird case where the games like 40 bucks in Canada And I kind of refused to pay that but it’s kind of a big game. So I don’t know why I’m easy dating there’s a lot of good games coming out – Like a game that we cannot talk on PlayStation podcast, but Super Smash Mm-hmm. So in spiral to which I have pre-order, I cannot buy every game. So yeah that that’s a problem cash is a problem man understandable so there’s a lot of news to Cover a lot of cool news, too. So we’ll jump right in. What what do you think about that? I Say we jump in headfirst we jump with the big one PlayStation and This one is kind of surprising because PlayStation usually don’t do that but place classic Announced and dated a little bit like the Super Nintendo classic and the Nintendo classic and Sony joined the retro mini console party, so it will be priced at 9999 us 130 Canadian of course 330 bucks more right will come with 20 games and the games we have right now a confirm is Final Fantasy 7 taken three Wild Arms jumping flash which I don’t know about and Raytracer type 4 and other legendary titles. So what do you think about this idea of PlayStation? I Think it’s a good idea. You know, it’s not like it’s a bad idea but You’re shipping it with 20 games you’re charging $100. Yeah, that’s five bucks for games man. I mean, I know we I mean Nintendo is like not the topic of the show But I mean you you look at the SNES classic and the NES classic and those have body capabilities You can have up to 200 games on those consoles. Yep, and there are they are easily crackable – not that I condemn that but Yeah, then it’s it’s a really open console and you can play pretty much all the titles And yeah, there’s much more titles and much more quality titles – I think so. We don’t have all the titles but Yeah up man It’s expensive for sure 20 games is not enough for me I Think we can already cross out the Spyro games and the crash games because they want people to buy the newer versions of those games But I think there’s also going to be like a store where you can pay to have more games as they get released But I think that there they went about this in the wrong direction if that’s ace especially with the 20 games I mean come on. Yeah, exactly and the big one these are like huge files, you know, it’s not like you can Yeah, exactly and um The big one for me is Final Fantasy 7 and there’s already a ps4 port which is the PC version a little bit more beautiful and there’s trophy support too and There’s like gun mode and stuff like that which make the game a little bit faster to play So there’s no reason for me to go back to the old version now, especially with the trophy support So I’m what what what do you think is our the leader in the legendary titles that they are talking about? Legendary, I mean when I think of PlayStation 1 I mean the legendary type come to me are like spyro and crash Yeah, but I’ve already said that they probably are getting pretty nuts on there but I mean, you know, we might we might see um, I Don’t even know like I I’m trying to think of like the like. Oh, yeah, I I have to think on it Well, obviously we’re gonna we’re gonna excel any Star Wars branded games Now obviously we’re gonna X out spyro and crash. I’m not sure I will have to think on it. Yep. I’m not sure you’re Like the big the big franchise are there like Final Fantasy Tekken Wild Arms Jumping flag not sure about which racer is like it’s a racing game, but it’s probably didn’t age. Well I’m not sure man. There’s a lot of good RPG like Xenogears and stuff like that There will be probably a lot of RPGs in there We’ll see. We’ll see we’ll probably talk more about this in the next upcoming weeks for sure man. Yeah It’s also weird that they didn’t use the analog controller Weird, right? So Get ready to learn how to use the d-pad for everything again. Yeah, exactly and yeah, there isn’t evil the first one but there’s no reason to To release that to there’s much more better version. So I’m not sure man Alright next we certainly a question Park in for sure man. I’m excited to see the full lineup – yeah, I Am – yeah next news Castlevania Symphony of the Night and Rondo of blood seemingly coming to ps4 now I don’t think this is a full remastered version or even an updated version There’s like a raiding board that the titles were spotted on It’s probably like a collection of the old games probably released on ps4 with trophy support But it’s it is exciting Castlevania is probably one of the classic game that will come out on the PlayStation Classic I think it’s called right? Yeah, probably so yeah Amazing game and one of the best game ever for me for sure Symphony of the Night that’s the one where you’d play as Dracula, right? Yep. Yeah. That was a great game growing up I love that game the music the design everything about it It was amazing and the inverted Castle – when you finish a game. Yeah, that was insane, man Well, I really want to play this game again because when I was a kid I don’t really remember much of the game anymore Like I remember being Dracula and I remember the big cathedrals and a music cuz I can listen to the soundtrack I don’t remember much about the game. It’s like I really want to play this one again. So I hope that this is true Yep, I do Yep, exactly and like game like Final Fantasy 7 didn’t age Well, I games like in 3d models like what even Wild Arms is not beautiful to look at now But games like this like Castlevania Symphony of the Night. It’s a 2d game. So the art is still beautiful So, yeah This is the type of games that I want to see on the PlayStation classic because I it aged Well a little bit like the Super Nintendo games, right? Yeah, exactly. So I’m excited for this one Rondo upload. Never played it though. Not sure about that Not sure about that All right, so there will be a couple of Japanese news. I’m sorry, Amy first of all, I’m I know you’re not a huge fan of G RPG, but there’s a lot of exciting news so Bandai Namco’s planning tales remakes the Tales series and remasters based on fan requests, so The tell Siri producer the Baba is not working on his own game Islam it was the one that the main producer for the tales get the Tales series I mean and The God Eater producer Yusuke to move to me zyre what that that’s my Japanese as the best I got man That’s good enough. That’s good enough. Yeah Okay, just like a Japanese man. Yeah, exactly, man. I speak three languages. I Step in to manage the action role-playing a franchise on console. So basically Tales of Vesperia has been spotted In the definitive edition for PlayStation 4 and tales of Xillia 1 & 2 is n 2 is probably a safe bet – since it Was bought in online also So the next step would be probably go to like the older games of the Tales series like tales of legendia And tales of the abyss Tales of Graces f is probably one of the worst Tales games. I’m not sure about this one, but Yeah, I’m excited about this man. I have all the Tales games So I’m a huge fan, but I haven’t played like the newest one. I just add them, but I never play them Yeah, that’s a that’s a problem I have man It’s cool that they’re going through the put the fan request instead of making ones that they want to first Yep for sure. But is it true though? Is it really that the title the article you sent me? I yeah, yeah, I know but like it’s easy to say but when the fans request something bandai namco is not too bad And listening to fans and that’s for sure So yeah tales man lot of exciting news There’s a rumor to that resonance of fate which was a ps3 G RPG game really complex battles And I haven’t played a lot. I was not a huge fan of this game, but you probably come to ps4 if the rumors are true, so Sega is publishing the game still and There’s a lot of people actually liking this game you probably never heard about this right no, but the the single Picture that they have for it and these eyes are so-so Therapy on yeah, man, that’s weird. That’s like the ones really small and the ones really big it’s weird. Yeah. It’s probably asleep guns guns interests me that That’s what sure man So you might play you might like this one. Actually. It’s a strategy game Morton. It’s Japanese, but it’s not it’s not like a turn-based Traditional RPG so you might want to check this one out man You know put at the bottom the list button was delays so you never buy it, right? Next news Wolfenstein trees in development. This one’s for you man confirms bethesdad. So that’s not a huge surprise You played the first two one, right? Yeah, I played number one 1.5. I call it there which is a mobile quad and then two I played all the way with two and two Wasn’t as good as a lot of people thought it was I thought it was kind of yeah, you know I just thought was hmm. I really enjoyed the the first one and a half better than this game. So I’m hoping that they They do a little bit better with three I wasn’t I wasn’t Like I was really excited before I was going up. I played it at PAX last year. I got a free smoothie It’s strawberry smoothie and I had I have the the glass they give you And I says Wolfenstein to the new Colossus on it and looks like all you know it looks like the old 60s style like the game was and I was so excited and I started playing and I’m like I’m not really digging this one. So hopefully they can rise from the ashes for me So I think that the second one got better reviews. I think the people liked the second one. I played the first one halfway through It was a good game, but it was not like spectacular to me I’m not a huge FPS fan Toso Maybe that’s why it was more like this or it was cool But it’s more shooting and shooting and shooting not a huge fan of that Usually sorry was cool too and the gameplay was solid as far as I know But the second game seems more my kind of games. I think there’s more story right in the second game It’s a little bit more convoluted though. Oh, yeah, I don’t want to give anything away But the story got it goes everywhere really quickly. Okay But you know it like it’s it’s a good FPS. You know, it’s shoot. Everything’s fine about it I just I wasn’t digging it You know wasn’t it wasn’t something that I wanted to play all the way through but I did anyways I was what you finish the game. Yeah. Well you seem sad about it man. Well, I mean it wasn’t that like I said like everything happens so fast and it’s like you hit a beat and then right away another beat and it’s like it just it’s just Taxing after a while and then by the end of it you’re like, okay, I’m ready for the huge twist Number 57 in the game and no twist All right Next next one is Chuck abou mystery dungeon everybody flaps What a weird title man It’s coming to ps4 this winter. So it’s dumb. It’s part of the see the old Final Fantasy Fable series franchise Not a lot of details regarding this one, but there’s two co-op play. So alright. So next one. Once again the Final Fantasy News. Well the Final Fantasy maximum brings winsy back to ps4 So this one was on my list for a long time now that it’s remastered Not remastered but like the old package of all of Final Fantasy Will be released I will I’ll just wait for this version for sure There’s a lot of DLC characters and there’s new characters from Final Fantasy Legion, which I’m really excited about this game is really cubed You might actually like this one too, man. I’m trying to do I’m trying to Bring you into the Final Fantasy franchise and games man. You really are trying very very very hard Look at the characters, man Really? Yeah, like I look like Funko pops. Yep. It’s called Shibley. I think or maybe Cheaply chibi chibi is that you be cheap? Yeah. Yeah. It’s like chibi Robo. Yeah I remember this game – it wasn’t good – Sundy is right No, no the original one on GameCube. That’s the 1i that stone I always loved oh, there’s a game on Diaz, but we can talk about this man. No, no playstation podcast. Remember? Yeah yeah, and if this happen Next news captain beat-em-up bundle brings final fight captain commando and more to the ps4 So basically there’s a beat-em-up bundle The compilation will include final fights the king of dragons captain commando armored warriors knights of the round Warriors of fates and battle circuit so a lot of good classic games on there You probably played final fight, of course Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I remember that game. I don’t remember the other ones though. I remember knights of the round It’s all beat em up. It’s pretty much all the same gameplay Honestly, it’s just in different settings But it’s cool that they release this as a part of the bundle so you can like add them all I don’t I’m not sure about the trophies though, maybe like six titanium Maybe the giant list of game. Yeah. I’m thinking it’s gonna be like a giant list unless they have like individual games Inside the game, you know kind of like Megaman or something like that. So anyway, it will not be easy So there’s a lot of art core games in there Especially I think final fights was a pretty odd game Yeah Next news Assassin’s Creed 3 stage a remastered revolution on ps4 so We talked about Assassin’s Creed 3 Like the worst one, yeah, they’re pulling it over Exactly, but they like I like I love the story and how they changed the combat a little bit to be a little bit more Brutal, but come on like this one was not one that I enjoyed playing It’s one of the worst Assassin’s Creed a game. I played for sure but the good thing about it is that if you buy if you buy the season pass of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey It will be included in that wint Assassin’s Creed 3 liberation remastered which was a part of the PS Vita spin-off which wasn’t good – That’s a good game. Either man. I thought liberation was ok. Yeah, I played it on the PlayStation 4 it might have been upgraded So I don’t know about the Vita version, but I played on the PlayStation 4 I think the beta version had a lot of like Rendering problems and stuff like that Maybe they fixed it in the remaster probably Yeah, so two games to remaster game for Including in the season pass so that’s not too bad actually Yeah, it’s not bad. You know, I’ll probably buy it. Anyways, you know, I’m that way with things Even the season pass well, maybe have to see them pass, but I’ll definitely probably buy three Just to relive it Really the nice. That’s just how I am, you know? I’m with a series in the ups and downs and assassins crews one of those ones where it’s like it went down and it stayed Down for a while But if they if it’s a really a remaster and it’s not just a you know an HD thing You know, I’ll look into it and I’ll probably buy it anyways, yep, it’s not a bad game it’s not a terrible game He’s just not It was the start of the decline of his Creed that like the the free reign was worse. The story was a little bit worse, especially in the future and you know, it just says greedy don’t really start coming up again until syndicate for me personally Yeah, I stopped after this one. So I’m I mean, I mean we talked about this, but I’m at Black Flag right now So mmhmm. Yeah, Black Flag is a nice pirate adventure, but the story still sucks. Yeah. Sorry. It always sucks man Oh – in Brotherhood. Yeah, exactly, man next news time spinner Spinner. Oh, yeah, man. This one looks really good like it’s coming out on ps4 and PSVita, of course September 25th So it’s a Pixlr game You can control time too You can like stop time to freeze enemies in the air and use the enemy to jump on like higher Platforms and stuff like that. There’s a lot of equipments and Leveling up and you have skills – reminds me a little bit of Sheol night. But with more a cooler pixel-art, I would say and the story is seems quite large and Involved you so I’m excited about this one man. Yeah, it looks really cool I like the art style and it just it looks like a real nice Old-school type game 2d 2d platformer. Yep I remind me a little bit of Castlevania Symphony of the Night actually like I was thinking yeah, yeah Especially the background and you’re inside the castle with scenes So, yep, it seems really cool and 9999. That’s a perfect price point for this type of game Take notes developers take notes Really and at the same date as a tender 25th will be all night void art edition This is a complete edition of all night It will come with 4 DLC like the original game with 4 DLCs and the DLCs are quite big in this game I saw a couple of youtubers play this game specially on live streams. It seems like Metroidvania gained a lot of good reviews out there. Everybody loves this game and I Have it, but I haven’t played it yet For the computer have it? So I’ve been I’ve been kind of sitting on it for a little bit But I really like just like with the last game. I love the art style I’m a supposed to be like a hardcore type platformer kind of game. I hate to say it, but dark zone rank Yeah, it just it looks like a really fun and awesome game and I can’t wait to jump into it I’m ready, but I just haven’t had a time yet If you like a good game, I like it if you want a good 2-d game Well, Dark Souls like try salt and sanctuary man. That’s a that the as close as you’ll get to to the tarsals games Alright, I’ll write it here. I am typing it right now. Ok, that’s seem so fake man Overall I’ll go back through the podcast and remember. Ok. Yeah to the oh look that up Okay, the next one is for you man, I cannot talk about this one Next one is a Treyarch. They announced changes to the blackout the Blackout mode in call duty black ops 4 after the beta was released on PlayStation I believe it’s maybe I think last week was the Xbox one two weeks ago was playstation And pretty much what blackout is it’s a call to D. Fortnight. Hi. I’ve been making the joke black ops fortnight So the funny thing about this is I didn’t actually get to play it myself personally Every time I would try and get into a match the game would freeze and the PlayStation would troubleshoot it or try to troubleshoot it and then it would eventually give up and freeze again on my playstation home screen and Then I would have to unplug my PlayStation and plug it back in and after the second time I was like, okay We’re deleting this app That sucks man But I did watch one of my good friends on Twitch. His name is Keynes I did watch him play it and he was he was saying a lot of the things that they changed in here were bad So the armor they tweaked the armor. He said it was way too overpowered. Well, they’ve tweaked it It drops less now and it’s it’s not as powerful A lot of the sounds and stuff like that were were improperly Mixed so things like stepping on floors and stuff Like that would be super loud or teamates footsteps weren’t as loud as enemy footsteps even with the perks that make them better So stuff like that was supposedly improved. We won’t find out until the game comes out. Of course They’ve made up pick up speed for guns a little bit faster but a lot of people have been asking for picking up guns automatically off the ground which Would kind of defeat the purpose of this sort of game old I mean It’s really more about item management and figuring out which gun you want and not just Auto picking up everything and getting on your way So I think that they’re not going to include that even though they said they are going to try and test it in their own Studio. I don’t think they’re going to keep it on though. And if they do it’s probably gonna be an option And then they’ve apparently improved inviting friends to your party Which obviously wasn’t working for me and the game wasn’t working at all. So we’ll see What up, from? What I saw the blackout mode. I mean, it’s it’s it’s pretty much just for tonight in It looks like it has a nicer map to it. There are areas that actually have zombies And the zombies drop super rare weapons, but of course, you know It’s gonna reveal your location on the map And it’s it’s you could be surrounded by zombies but there’s two different locations that zombies pop up nuke town is on the map So all those fanboys of nuke town you you got your wish nuke towns there and really all in all I think it’s just gonna be a You know just gonna be like it’s there, you know, hopefully it’ll work when it finally comes out for me I am still planning on getting the game because I thought the multiplayer was fun but for the blackout mode I’m it might be one of those things where I play it like one or two times and then leave it So the blackout mode was the one was that that was a freezing no PlayStation, right? Yeah So the last beta that came out it was after the multiplayer beta is a weekend or two weeks after that multiplayer beta It was just a beta for blackout mode. So he would load the game. You could only choose blackout mode. Okay? Oh, that’s cool That’s cool. So okay, they block did the other modes and Okay, so they’re trying to stress the servers and stuff like that. Yep. Yep, and hey 7.5 million zombies were killed during the blackout beta of course. I’m not even surprised man. That’s a big game for sure The next segment is yours. It’s called the ferris drop where we talk about all the new releases on PlayStation So there you go, man Alrighty today four is a ferry to drop first up we have an and Nodine I think that’s how you say it and Anodyne is a 16-bit Puzzle solver and you go through you defeat enemies with a broom Remind me a little bit of a moonlighter actually it started with the broom. Yeah It has a nice soundtrack it you explore a world full of natural urban and abstract environments It’s all inspired by classic 16-bit games. It’s challenging as a fun It has fun dungeons that await you I think it looks kind of cool It’s definitely a game that is probably gonna take you a little while to master. But once you get to it, boom, you’re golden I’m pretty sure there’s RPG elements. I don’t think he use a broom the entire game, but we will see windows Next up in this game. Whoa. It’s probably a game. I’m gonna pick up soon. It’s a psvr exclusive and it’s called blind It’s a narrative driven Psychological thriller where the player is blind and you and you must use echolocation to explore your surroundings Kind of like daredevil. There you go man. This is what I want to see on the psvr. That’s really special actually Not sure if it’s good or not, but the IDs cool man Yeah, it’s definitely something different that we haven’t seen in the VR SETI I know there was another game, but I don’t think it was VR Eifert we was called but you played as a blind woman This game seems to be a little bit more immersive a little bit more horror orientated Yeah, so it’s definitely one that I want to pick up I’ll definitely definitely check it out. Yep. For sure. Cool art – cool art Next up is Scribblenauts mega mega pack This is two games in one and with all the DLC with it you use the power of your imagination to solve puzzles and endless ways and this includes the Scribblenauts unlimited and DC Comics adventure games so it’s two and one Scribblenauts has always been a game It’s like I really really want to play it. But when I start playing it I go Well, I really have a lot of fun But I can see where people can have a lot of fun cuz there is like endless ways to do things You can even type in the name Hitler and it will pop up a little Hitler dude in there You notice I don’t know if they’ve taken that out but I remember playing like the first one originally on the DS and then you could do a Little bit I’ve never played the the DC one, but I did play unlimited And it was you know, it was about the same, you know All the scribble night games are about the same You pretty much just type out random words And then they appear on the screen and you use them to help you get through the level cool So yeah, that’s scribble. That’s cool Next up is a game is another game that I’m pretty interested in. It’s called speed brawl is a sweet brawler No, just speed brawl speed bro. Yeah, it’s a 2-d combat racer. It’s all about moving fast and hitting hard Maintain your speed and build a build up combos and unleash special moves There’s six unique for all hours to choose from with upgrades It’s got she’ll say 2 graphics 50 events and races with local and online co-op Yes, I think there’s gonna be a really cool game. I think so. Yep. This game seems really cool, man You’re really fastened through it. I’m excited for this one, too Yeah, I’m probably gonna probably gonna probably buy it this weekend I’ve been I’ve been watching a lot of videos on it. I think it looks really cool. Yeah for sure Next up is transference And this is another psvr game You pretty much just have to escape a room. It’s set in a deranged mind and you experience it in a first-person Its exploration type. It’s a new dimension You can shift between three perspectives and you can attempt to unravel the mystery in this mind-bending psychological thriller So do two psvr horror games coming out or thrillers coming out this week so people of the the horror game if you like horror games I mean, it’s a good good week for you and the PSP are still supported – this is what I like, man Yeah, they’re still putting out games for it every week it seems I’m always given one out at least but I’m I’m excited this game like There’s a game called The lost soul on the VR system which just has so many bugs to it And I was really hoping that they would fix the bug they really haven’t but these games coming out now They seem to be polished. I’ve watched video people playing them they seem to work fine And this game was one of those games that had a really cool concept that I was interested in Might wait on it though for for like a sail or something like that Alright, are you done and then? I added one more to list without you knowing okay. I have won something. So that’s good. Oh, there we go It’s a free-to-play game. It’s called war face and eye codename it war but Because it looks like your generic First-person free-to-play game tons of micro transactions including coins to purchase upgrades And it’s been around for a while now It was actually released on the PS Vita As a free-to-play so I don’t know why they decided to bring it to PlayStation 4 I do have it download it on my playstation right now. I want I’m gonna try it out just to see what it’s like but Codename war but and that’s all I will say, okay the one I had on my list, I recently a freaky actually for Like 1 over ago, that’s why I didn’t told you It’s for the Guardians between so you will see it in probably the first impressions next week on my own the channel but it seems like puzzle adventure with really unique art style story driven Not I don’t know much about the game. I just saw the trailer, but it looks really cool I’m excited to play it for sure man It kind of looks like that broken age game. Yeah a little bit. Yeah, I Played that I didn’t like it though. Oh, I hope it’s better than broken age then yeah, I bought broken age because it was getting like nines and tens all over the Internet I bought it and I was so disappointed man I’m usually like kings but this one is wasn’t good man. I think it was like more of like a Trophy horror game, you know, if you really want those trophies you could buy this one and stack it I think yeah But it’s not an easy platinum man. Oh You have to speedrun the game in one hour, which is really tight actually really really tight. You have to follow a guide and you you You you can make too many mistakes. Otherwise, you’ll get past the 1 hour mark, so Nothing easy platinum. I was super frustrated with it too even did the trophies were bad, man Okay, I didn’t like it man. Yeah Yeah, okay Oh move on Topic of the show is that it it is it is it it It’s favorite game series that are dead. So we took We pick five each I’ll let you begin There’s no rules. I don’t think so We have some games that are not like decision exclusive to you So it’s not like PlayStation game series. It’s more like series that appears on PlayStation. So our first game. Yeah me The first game I decided to start with yeah first series. Sorry is The Dead Island series for me. I know a lot of people don’t like the Dead Island games But I was a pretty big fan of the first one in Riptide. I thought they were Decent games and when the remasters came out I was like, oh great. That means that Dead Island 2 is right around the corner Wow Every year they say it’s still in development Quote-unquote, but we’ve haven’t seen any gameplay since 2015 and we haven’t heard anything more about the game Since 2014 so, you know There’s that but Dead Island 1 was released on September 6 20 2011 it had mediocre reviews developers Techland for all of the Dead Island games There was also a game called Escape. Oh, I’m sorry. I missed one Dead Island Riptide also came out about two years later in April 23rd And I love that one. Now. That’s the one that I really enjoyed playing and what me got me into the series. I Escaped that Island was a third person spin-off and the fat shark took over the development for this one. It was released on November 18th Wasn’t really that great of a game. It kind of reminded me of that There’s another game where you fight zombies and you’re on an island. It’s like a thousand and one ways to survive the zombie apocalypse It’s a really long though. I think okay, it reminded me of that a lot There was also a game called Dead Island epidemic which was slated for a 2014 release it got canceled It was an online multiplayer battle arena spin-off try saying that five times fast. Nope It was gonna be made by stunlock studios. It was shut down September 2015 and As I already said the Dead Island definitive edition, which had Dead Island 1 and Riptide on it That was released May 31st 2016. It was a remaster. They did a good job with it I really like everything was improved about the games – except for the voice acting Of course, I don’t think so much you can do about that No, but yeah deadline – like I said before to be announced still was announced in 2014 Game Stop was accepting pre-orders and It’s been Four years and we’ve really had nothing else about it. And I think most people cancelled their pre-orders yeah, of course, and it’s not like Officially dead, but I think it’s dead, right? the The issue I think was that the original trailer for the Dead Island game the announcement trailer Was so fucking good man that People were expecting like a triple gains and when they release the game, it was buggy I took a long time to patch to the idea behind the game was really good actually But the trailer was did you remember the trailer it just it set the bar way too high Yeah, it was like fully rendered graphics. It looked really awesome And then when he actually got to the game it was like like one of the first scenes in the island one is you walk out to the balcony in it in a sea, I think it’s a zombie just Falls in front of you and It still looks pretty bad in the remastered version, but that’s what you expect from from this game well Like I said the remastered version pretty much I mean if it was really good like I really enjoyed the remaster of the games though If you if you have a question mark about Dead Island the original games. Sorry my dog is I Get ear that Playing with a toy right now but you know the the the definitive editions they’re cheap and They’re made really well, so I would definitely suggest picking those up if you want a zombie zombie survival game. All right all right, so my pick for the first series is weaker than The it’s a classic RPG Series, of course, you know how much I love RPGs It was on the original release on 95 on position 1 Suikoden 2 was 98 3 was 2002 four was 2004 5 was 2000 2006 and after that they just spin off games after games on the DS and There was one on position two was soo cannon toxic which was was not the same at all. It was more strategy games So I don’t count that as the main original series, but people love Suikoden man I don’t read I don’t understand why the series dead. The last release is 2012 but it’s only is a Japanese only and it was on PSP which is weird Yep, so it’s a traditional two traditional RPG a lot of characters I think like games that the games have like over 100 playable characters at least in the third one The second one was considered the best. So it’s a series that I would love to see remastered Maybe remastered but even like the problem with those games is that you mastering the games like the the mechanics are still old So it’s not good to remaster the game. You have to a little bit like Dragon Quest maybe or something a series That’s still going on They need to maybe do sweeter than 6 I don’t know but it’s a it’s a series that I would love to see your master for sure Yeah, I think doing a remaster of older game is better than doing like a remake. Actually, I’m sorry Let’s switch it around I think doing a remake of older series is better than doing a remaster Because a remake is from the ground up or redoing it Whereas a remaster is just like put a new coat of paint on and keep the controls the same so I think I think would be better with a remake yeah, of course remake is always is always better, but it’s more expensive to But old RPGs still are still old even remastered so I’m not sure about this one man Not sure if there’s even a market for those types of games outside, Japan So it’s a it’s a hard one, but I love this series man It would definitely be a gamble if they decided to bring it back into the u.s. Yeah for sure Maybe a Zelda style the turn bears turn-based RPGs like that are pretty much dead so they will need to do something more a little bit like Final Fantasy 15 or Kingdom Hearts like more Action-oriented or something like that? Maybe that would work Even open the world. I don’t know but I love this series man Next up next up. Ah speaking of series that I love that we love I Think next up is the Guitar Hero series for me. Yeah, it’s our hero was one of those games that I Just I just loved, you know, it’s like you get to be a rock star, you know And you don’t have to you don’t have to form a band and I think the biggest problem with its are here was they put out way too many games in a short amount of time and I’m gonna go through this giant list that they have i’ve excluded the spin-offs like DJ hero and stuff like that so I just have the main games in the series but guitar you started in November of 2005 Harmonix developed the first three official games in the series and Then Harmonix split from them after they did Rock the 80s and they went to rock band But her Maxted guitar, er one guitar eo2 which was also which was released in number 20 2006, which was like a year later But the game was a lot better Guitar eo2 was a lot better you could tell that they put a lot more work into the design and a make of the game Dario 2 was actually the first one that I played at Walmart of all places So what Harmonix did was they were like, okay Let’s make Rock the 80s, which was just kind of like a you would call it an expansion pack now But it was literally just another game that had you know, X amount of songs on it was released in July of 2007 So not even a year long development cycle on that one which is Not a good idea But nevertheless Guitar Hero rocked on and neversoft took over the series with guitar eo3 Or in real they released in October of 2007 So once again, you don’t have too many months between those two games. Yeah and the average consumer I mean you’re spending $60 for half a game for Rock the 80s. Well, here we go Guitar Hero 3 comes out That was a good one, too. That was a good one. Yeah guitar eo3 was the peak of the rock band games Lots of people loved that one be especially I really enjoyed that one good soundtrack not not like some of the rock bands and Guitar Hero’s they have The songs are done by a cover band and this one featured a lot of original songs they you know, it wasn’t a cover band on all of them and Shortly after guitar eo3 was released almost a half a year later D’arco Aerosmith came out which featured the band Aerosmith and that was in 2008 as well And That game was like it was like a half step forward Yeah, and you have to love our to like at least I Rose Mia to to buy the games, huh? Right and it was weird because there was a lot of other songs that were on it. They were good but the game suffered from just beating on the old engine and Then not even a year later. We get Guitar Hero World Tour or aka Guitar Hero 4 And that was released in October of 2008. That one sucked. I didn’t think it sucked I just thought that they tried to take that rock band formula and throw it into this game and it just didn’t work I mean the the graphics were horrible. The character designs are terrible. The fleece was early I thought it was alright its sight. I This was the first game that I heard I heard corn. Well. Yeah Connolly and I laughed during the section idea This little thing but I thought it was an all right setlist. I really enjoyed the harder songs on this game But hey, we’re moving on to the Guitar Hero Metallica, which was another half step up It was and that was released in April of 2009 That one I don’t like Metallica. So I didn’t pick that one up right away, but I did pick it up eventually I felt like they charted the songs very easily the hardest song on the game was one but I had already mastered that when I guitar about three, so, you know, not too bad and Then Oh check this out from April to June where you got guitar Oh Smash Hits which was just a literal remaster of songs from the first four games And they released that in June 2009 and Then God not even two months later We have Guitar Hero 5 coming out September 1st of 2009 and that one they updated the graphics on and they did a lot better with how the game looked but the controllers got worse and Then not even two months later band hero gets released, November 3rd which is a pop version of rock guitar hero and Then not even a month later Guitar Hero van Halen comes out December 22nd 2009 So that’s three games In about six months that’s and they expected the series to live on yeah, so you have them you have the reason why the Series died right there. Yeah that that is literally it right there and then finally, they tried to revive the series of warriors of rock, which was released in September of 2010 I really enjoyed warrior rock, but it just didn’t sell. No one bought this game and then fast forward to 2015 They tried in river to arrive the plastic and plastic guitar scene Alive which are least October 20th of 2015. I thought that I really enjoyed it I thought it was better than rock band 4 when it came out on an initial release Unfortunately the live mode which is where there are over like two Some songs is ending at the end of December 20th The December 22nd this year. So play the songs while you can before the game turns into a bargain bin game. Yeah Yeah, that’s it’s our girl Nile. I love guitar hero. I love the plastic instrument games I still play rock band 4 Even though I think it’s subpar to the other Guitar hero and rock band games at least something and they still update it every so often Yeah, man. I I love guitar hero tree It’s it’s all about the playlist honestly for me so Doesn’t matter Like the graphics didn’t matter. It was like the gameplay was perfect The guitar was a great ID. The playlist was good on the third one And after that, I don’t know what what they could do to revive the series that this is my main point Maybe and then fortified play what you want Well, I think that’s kind of like what Guitar Hero live does right now But I thought like Guitar Hero warriors of Rock was a step in the right direction like the story mode Actually had something to it had character to it each character has its own power up and you would play as them and you would master their moves and then at the end it Was a whole big compilation of you played like the two Megadeth songs which are the hardest songs that I have ever played in my life for a Guitar Hero game and you use all their powers at Once and it’s just such a great game and had a great soundtrack unfortunately, like I said, it didn’t sell because you know once a plastic guitar instrument in 2010 you know it Died very fast and I had made they were they were their own worst. Enemy in this case. Yep, for sure, man Next step for me is dying or crisis. Not sure if I We talked about this one before the podcast the first one was released in 99 on PlayStation 1 the second one on 2000 In 2000 on PlayStation 1 – and on PC, I think if I remember correctly that The third one. It’s a more spin off its dino stalker in 2002 It was reason ps2 and the third was released exclusively for Xbox Which is a weird turn of events right there this is I would call it. I may be like Recent evil, but with dinosaur, is that correct? Yeah, I would say that Actually for the first game the first game was like that the second game which is my favorite They kind of changed it up. But the first game definitely I would say Resident Evil style Maybe a little bit more its its survival or for sure. It’s maybe a little bit more action-adventure oriented more than Resident Evil but still I think this game could be revived the game series the series could be revived into something else like a third person on ps4 and there’s talked to Regarding the future. There’s a lot of rumors, especially in in 2014 that the development was Going on for Dino Crisis 4 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox one But never heard about this so again after that, so probably the series dead probably but I Would love to see another one and this one’s quite possible to be a huge success – especially with dinosaur There’s not a lot of game a featuring dinosaurs actually That’s true as furniture. So maybe there’s a niche there Yeah. Yeah, I’d like to see a remaster of one and two and maybe the spin-off three I never played though, so I don’t have I don’t have a comment on that one Nope me neither, but the first and the second one was beautiful man, beautiful games You can go ahead man alright, so my my third one that I picked out was one that started off really really good like power in the face and Then it quickly just took a nosedive and that’s the Force Unleashed series I had two games in the series for us at least one cone a nephew one Name right. There was really September 16 2008 by LucasArts. Of course. I really liked the first Force Unleashed I thought it was a great spin-off of the Star Wars, you know especially at the end when you’re freaking fighting Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine if you want to There’s a nice little bit of a choice in there, but I thought just it was a really cool game You got the upgrade your forest powers and kind of played the way you want and the DLC was brutal Like he got you killed Han Solo you killed Chewbacca. You killed Luke Skywalker. It was it was brutal I I couldn’t I couldn’t play it more than one side. I didn’t I didn’t like that it was so Brutal and then of course later at the year mano for two comes out with the freakin no Russian level So it’s like oh we were continuously raising the bar on this stuff Okay, go ahead yeah And then Force Unleashed 2 was released almost two years later, October 26 28 2012. That’s 2010. Geez I can’t talk today I’m tired Yes, it was Yeah, Super Mario RPG – but we can talk about this but it was a great deal ice 3 man But fortunately – was like it was everything I didn’t want, you know in a in a Force Unleashed game I mean it took everything that forced least one set up and it just threw it all away I mean, you literally played as a as a clone and at the end of the game Spoiler alert you find out there’s a whole factory of clones and it’s like what the hell am I playing here? It was a bad game in general and it just it didn’t get it didn’t go anywhere. Come work commercially It just it was poor so and when Justin he bought does Lucas arts and and Lucas Films in 2013 They cancelled fortunately three and it was supposed to be like an open-world adventure game where you would actually team up with Darth Vader Which sounds kind of cool to be honest with you, but unfortunately was cancelled it was canned Okay so Yep. So the Disney shut down Lucas art and that was like that was it a bunch of games got taxed Yeah there was that that was the other game where you played as I think he played his Jango Fett or something like that that they That they canceled to that. Everyone was really looking forward to it was a call like like Star Wars 1337 or something like that I’m not sure, okay So next step for me is next series is shadow arts Probably a more obscure series This is one of the most underrated RPG on the PlayStation 2 for sure at least for me This is a really really at the first game was and even the second game was really really dark matter team and the twist about those games, is that instead of just selecting the attack button it was a clock so you had to like stop the Oh you call that and in the clock like the thing that turning Stop the gears the gears exactly. It’s what I’m searching for. All right, so you stop gears and If you stop at the right direction in the right place you have a critical it and stuff like that and you can like equip certain things that makes Like the pie a little bit bigger So that was the twist of the shadow parts gains a lot of story a lot of emotional moment especially in the first game second game was the eye point for me a lot the game was really better than the first one the characters were memorable – this is really Japanese – Of course the third the third game was really a step in the wrong direction for me. So maybe that’s why the sales Didn’t go as planned It was published by exceed games, which is a small publisher – a small publisher so yeah that and the the clock is called a judgement ring in the game and That’s the series I would love to see once again. It’s the same thing as Succoth I’m not sure what they could do with this series Since the turn-based RPG are pretty much dead at this point There’s a couple games that are turn-based, but it’s really rare from now on So yeah shadow arts, man I’m gonna save my most controversial one for the end But the the next one I had up in in line is a half-life the half-life series I know this isn’t a Playstation one, but it’s one that probably left the biggest impact in the gaming world To this day and it is still kind of a myth to this day whether half-life 3 will come out or not but half-life 1 was released in November of 1998 a pretty good game I mean, I can’t complain about it half-life 2 came out November 16th 20 2004 improved upon everything the half-life 1 had wrong with it Much better story to it There’s no talking between the two games – man. I know I know that’s why everyone’s thinking, you know half-life 3 still come out I mean look at that giant gap. It’s like well, this one’s a little bit more. Yeah But originally they were gonna have three extra episodes come out for half-life 2 so episode one came out June 1st 2006 episode 2 came out October 10th 2007 ended on a huge cliffhanger and Then they cancelled it with Row 3 and now half-life 3 has kind of been swimming in limbo originally The maker of half-life was saying that oh, yeah, we’re we’re kinda half-life 3 where we’re gonna have to buy three it’s gonna come out in you know late 2007, whatever he said and Gradually, you can see him through interviews and through speaking publicly He’s kind of Taken half-life 3 out of his vocabulary He doesn’t want to even mention half-life 3. So there’s a really good video on YouTube that you can kind of watch About that, but you can definitely see him go from he’s really gung-ho about making half-life 3 – he won’t even mention it He won’t even talk about it. It’s literally just a meme now, and that’s probably all it will have be now, unfortunately I would love to know the story behind this game and I’m pretty sure it was in development at some point That’s probably an interesting story I’d volved right? Yeah it’s valve and Yep, they don’t they don’t seem to know how to count to three now There’s no left 4 dead 3. There’s no portal 3 and there’s no half-life 3 and they are behind steam to you, right? Yes They are they’re behind steam, you know, you know what it’s gonna happen like one day You’ll wake up and it will be there man, and the internet will explode I think that’s the plan Everyone’s heads just implode Yeah All right. That’s a good one, man The next one for me is parasite eve which is not RPG, I I don’t yeah. It’s probably a RPG once again so parasite if the first one was released in 98 it was a little bit like Resident Evil, but with more RPG elements, it was an order game for sure a short game to round like six to 10 hours Receive well – they got the the green label greatest hits you remember that on the ps1 the ugly green Label I think every games that’s all over 1 million ad that re-release of the game The second one Was good, I think if I remember correctly, but the first one was really the I point at least for me with aya and after that, they tried to bring it to the To the PSP with the third birthday never played it – I think I added – never never played it Got mixed reviews and after that the series just died man. Just like that in 2010 so it’s been almost eight years now Yeah, and that’s it for parasite eve Alright so like I said, this one’s uh This this last time for me is a little I had a little fight night our first fight But I had to put in the the Mass Effect series I know it’s only been it’s been about a year since the last game came out But I have overwhelming evidence that this game series has dead and we’ll probably not return for a very very long time if it ever does but It’s not like I love Mass Effect I love Mass Effect. One two, and three they’re all equally loved in my eyes Each of them have their own flaws each of them have their own high points But all in all I love the original trilogy and Mass Effect Andromeda came along and just shit on everything that they had built Yeah, man Oh Mass Effect 1 & 2 were specifically made by Bioware and then published by EA But when Mass Effect 3 came around EA took over and and absorbed Bioware So that’s why you got this weird loot crate system in there More emphasis on multiplayer because originally it wasn’t supposed to have any type of multiplayer nice epic co-op Even though I enjoyed the co-op in it, it wasn’t supposed to be there you can see where it parsed the story struggled because they put more effort towards them all day playoff for sure and now Mass Effect Andromeda came out last year in 2017 and you can definitely see that it was rushed it Was put out before it was supposed to be tons of glitches voice acting was terrible It got such low scores on Metacritic I Thought that the game was just it was just a shell of everything that it could have been you have a new galaxy to explore you have new options, but they got just the worst voice actors and All the different lands, you can splurt explore. They’re all just plain, you know, they’re just full of nothing Yeah, and there was a lot about the game to you. Yeah, there’s no need to do that I mean, I’m sure fans were like, oh I really want to play that right now but it’s like would you rather play a finished game that you don’t need to wait three hours to update the day 1 or Do you want you know a game that you you play and you go wow, there’s a lot wrong this. Yeah, exactly and There’s a 5 years gap between the third one and the last one and on the game was in poor shape I remember all the means to you from Andromeda, it was really cool like that the character with no face and stuff like that Was buggy man. It’s a it’s a cash grab once again Yeah, it was probably yeah, probably cash grab or it was you know Bioware was trying to make a game that they really wanted to make but then he a stepped in Yeah, I I hate that company. Yeah, but I love me let me tell you what let me let me read to you the the reason why I believe that the series is dead and It goes like this EA has said that Mass Effect Andromeda was not designed to be to have future installments Bioware’s original intention EI EI his original intention was to continue adding to the series However, all in the games disappointing commercial and critical reception Reports arose that Bioware would be taking a break from the franchise to focus on anthem and that Bioware Montreal Canada would focus on other games under EAS umbrella such as Star Wars Battlefront 2 which flopped and in August 2017 Bioware Montreal Canada was merged with EA’s motive studios So since they’ve actually merged within a studio I doubt that Mass Effect is ever gonna be revived again and the former series creator Casey Hudson R.i.p He’s not dead the company just fired him who departed from Bioware in 2014 said he wants to return the Mass Effect But EA won’t let him Okay So we we’re not sure for sure that that The Mass Effect series is dead. I just there’s a lot of evidence actually And there’s a lot there’s a lot piling against it and unfortunate Like I said, it’s one of my favorite series of all time and to go out and I know like this It hurts You wanna hear another? controversial one Yeah, lay it on me. Okay Breath of Fire I’ll merge two on my last one because it’s my podcast and I I can do what I whatever I want. Sure Bread bread a fire series. So the first one was released on Super Nintendo. Of course the second one – on Super Nintendo 93 and 94 back to back after that The Breath of Fire 3 was released on PlayStation and this is probably one of the best of the series at least for me It’s not originally a three station series, but after the third one pretty much all the releases Well the third that the three next one are on PlayStation verify for 2000 on PlayStation 2 3 & 4 were classic turn-based RPG after that they fuck it up, man They just go again in another direction with better fire dragon quarter, which was more an action game They try something on ps2 probably to like test the water with the 3d models and stuff like that and that’s the end of bread of fire, but There’s bread of fire 6 not sure where’s the 5? I think it’s better fire dragon quarter But it’s not part of the original series. Yes It’s number six, but it’s a free-to-play mobile game, so it doesn’t count Yeah, I wouldn’t count that either just like what rollerCoaster Tycoon 4 it’s around. I don’t Canada a series even though there’s a five Yeah, exactly Obul. It was a cash grab and it’s 14 years later. So it’s uh, it was released on 2016 So yeah, this is a cat who I’m once again Only a recent Japanese then Japanese you so it doesn’t count and this series is officially dead once again, man, I think to Ramiz RPG are just Like a project of their time Honestly, and the next one is Wild Arms another game series that I love and played to death The first one there’s wall bars while lungs to wall owns three Wallens for wall arms five The the the first two ones are on ps1 Three four and five are on Ps2 and Wild Arms XF. The last one is on PSP. The last one is more attack Tactical role-playing game so it’s not the turn-based like the other one, but pretty classic stuff that are dead now so Yeah, that’s pretty much it man. I love turn-based RPG III was nostalgic when I wrote the the the list I was like so many good game series, and it’s Just that man just dead Hey, you know like with everything everything has a second wind and with personnel v doing as good as it did I think you might see Turn-based RPGs coming back a little bit. Yeah, of course and talking about persona the first two games were like dungeon crawler games really difference from Personal three four and five. So there’s always like username Don’t go too far from the roots, but try something different The names are well-known to at least and in the playstation family so use them and try something and you have such good game series that Man You know what? I mean, you know what I mean? Yummy What? Like they have so good names like PlayStation have so much good game series. They could try to revive some of them at least They could make good. That’s sure that’s true Next segment dude. Are you ready? I am ready Trophies. So the first one is mark of the ninja remastered mark of the ninja was cut that one out you cut that one that remember we talked about that beginning we Won’t talk about that man. Okay Scribblenauts, yeah, let’s go with this one. Yeah a mark of the ninja is like it was released on Xbox originally a pretty cool game, but True. This is nothing out of the ordinary So, I think there’s a lot of miserable and stuff like that so Scribblenauts you might want to talk about this one. Yeah. I’m not too familiar with the series Well as we’ve kind of already said it’s like a puzzle series. This game has two trophy, listen one so for both games you have a list of trophies to do they’re not like split up so you can’t really tell which ones which but Some of them are pretty obvious And the trophy this doesn’t look too Difficult, but no one has gotten the Platinum yet. So I think There might be something here there that might be a little bit more difficult that you might need a guide for Well for the most part, I think it’s a it’s your basic trophy list go through the game spawn this specific character You gotta have to know the D CK characters to spawn – yeah Because you need to know the specific name of the alternate version O’s XY and Z So you would need to know a little bit more about the DC Universe But I’m sure there’s gonna be a guide coming out, you know in the future that’s gonna list it all for you. So But it you know, I said this cripple that games are fun. They’re just not like I Can’t stick with them for Duan Yeah, of course and with the guide, I’m pretty sure it’s super easy But the big one is Spyro which appeared like this morning Wednesday time of recording Pretty happy with the trophyless. Honestly, there’s a couple of miscellaneous one, but it seems like Similar to the crash series, I would say Sorry like I can texture because you have like specific things you need the two like you know in check and actually you push down the egg get a show for you on this game, you know you uh It’s Spyro one, you know pretty much just the main beats. The story are are the the Trophies. Well, there are a few in here that look different like the feet toasty. How can you hit that? That’s got to be a little challenging. Yeah for sure and there’s a lot of like defeat an enemy with a specific way or boss or something like that, so I’m not sure about The missable, this is what I’m worried right now Because our poly lives from this game if there’s an invisible basement Yeah, I think um, yeah I think like like I think there are those missile ones where it’s like you have to do a specific thing while fighting a boss Or you know collectibles are of course miscible But you can go back and get them but there’s one that I saw that was like, you know Don’t hit any or don’t kill any rats while going through the caves and I’m like, I’m remembering that part. I’m like that’s That’s tough. Yeah that stuff but I think there we’re chapter soleko something like that, right? that’d be nice for sure and Spyro 2 is more of the same. It seems like they designed all the trophies The same way I would say. Yeah, very similar. Yeah a lot of miscellaneous A lot of collectibles and stuff you related so I might wait to see a guide actually before starting the game Just make sure there’s no light ultra miserable. I play again 15 hours to get the trophy But pretty cool this I would say I’m yeah Well-rounded. Yeah, yeah for sure and the next That’s it for the trophies, right? Yes. Okay. The next segment is the question from the fans and subscribers I’m gonna give you two choice Both from the same person its perma Fox on PSN profiles Is a huge supporter of the show is listening at every week So shout-out to you and is watching pretty much all my stuff and is giving me feedback and stuff like that So really appreciate the support for sure The first one would be regarding Microtransactions and the second question is more are regarding the season passes These are two excellent topic. Yeah But I think microtransactions is what we should talk about today. Okay? after the backlash regarding microtransactions in video games most notably Star Wars Battlefront and others do you feel developers will still include these? These in the larger game franchises in the future or just raise the price of the game What do you think about that I Don’t think that they’re going to raise the price of games, but I do think that they are going to continuously make more and more medical transaction based games gambling games and especially from triple-a developers like we’ve already seen Battlefield to get completely ruined by microtransactions pay2win concept you know if we’ve already seen destiny too, you know, they like I said I think in a past podcast they increased the XP cap to get free Ngrams, so that would force a player who wants better gear to buy the EM grooms instead of just earning them through regular gameplay We’ve all heard about the shadow of war controversy with getting better orcs in your boxes than what are on the playing field and even though these have generated a lot of different opinions The bottom line is if one person spends $1 each on You know Microtransactions, let’s say that there’s a million people playing the game and 500,000 people Spend $1 in buy one loop box. That’s $500,000 right there. Yeah, I think that the companies see the cost They see what they’re getting and I don’t think they’re gonna change their ways because there are people out there who still buy coins for FIFA and Madden and the NBA games and they spend their money or they hack other people just to get the coins for FIFA and stuff like that and Companies see that and they go. Oh, look at this guy. He bought $100 worth of coins Like well, we’re puttin this in every game forward now, so I don’t think there’s gonna be any less micro transactions and I don’t think that they’re gonna raise the price of the game because really micro transactions like that aren’t parts of like they’re not like DLCs because I would I would understand raising the game price if you included all the DLCs in the game From this day one which is kind of shitty because it’d just be the main game, but you know I could see where they could raise the price potentially. I don’t think they will raise the price by taking out the micro transactions Yeah but in my opinion they already raised the price right like we talked about our Assassin’s Creed others say the base game is 60 bucks, but this season passes like 30 bucks more So basically the game if you want to be full experience It’s 90 bucks and the game is already done. The content for the season pass is Partially already done there’s Stuffing stuff inside the season pass just for value. But the base game is more than the 60 bucks So they’re trying to find sneaky way to raise the price of the game Like with free to play but pay to win and stuff like that. So you Ruby stuff is good for that for this season pass and there’s other developers like CD Projekt RED where they release a huge freakin game in witcher 3 and supported the game free And they release big huge DLC which were not really expensive so There’s different kind of publishers different kind of developers, too So I’m not sure if they’ll we’ll see like a clear way of pricing the games It’s all over the place now. So even like 7-eleven is 40 bucks, man. I mean just the County good point They’re like you’re still able to buy the base game for just $60 though. Like you’re not required to buy the season pass No, you know until until you are until those two mesh together I don’t think we’re gonna see a price change for the base game. No, no I’m saying Yeah, but like a part of the season paths could be included in the base game They just put they just take a part of the game Remove it from the base game and sold it separately. Well, yeah, we saw that with actually with Mass Effect 3 there’s a whole character arc and Side character who was built into Mass Effect 3 like he has to be there for things that make sense And if you didn’t buy the game day one Or if you didn’t get the season pass you missed out on this whole part of the story Yeah, I remember that which which was a huge controversy back then and also still to this day. I Even though I love Mass Effect 3. It’s like you say still yeah He still tried to jab you in the in the heart use the words for that Newbie stuff is pretty bad to you. And then there’s good developers like CD Projekt RED Even Rockstar is pretty good with supporting their games. So Yeah, it’s it’s just a matter of cash, honestly And and really with the micro transactions, like if it’s just cosmetic, you know, I’m not too you know Too angry about those kind of things because I don’t have to have a cosmetic item with called a world war 2 I know I’ve said this a lot of times but the crates in that game aren’t that bad? All you get is cosmetic items and you get enough per day to feed your gambling addiction You don’t have to spend any money but it’s the games that like Battlefront – when it originally came out like shadow of war that They give you the loot boxes like they’re they’re tasty. They you want that. It’s a ferret biscuit. Well, You know to get better at the game, you need a loot box cuz you know These things aren’t available in the game itself. Even freaking rocket League man was the worse for that You remember that one not yeah, I played rocket League I remember there being Yeah, man, did they? Made several millions of dollars with the loot crate’s it was all cosmetic to you But people would go crazy because you would open a loot crate and there’s like one chance out of like 20 I don’t know to get an exotic stuff a little bit like this and you’re right Yeah, kind of yeah So yeah, people would just buy keys and buy keys and buy keys and unlock glued crates and stuff like that So I’m not sure I don’t like loot crates for sure. I think nobody likes it Even the one that buy it doesn’t like loot crate. So I’m pretty sure This is a bad concept But I’m like, like you said the base game will remain like 60 bucks At least for Triple A games, but even Spyro is not is not sixty bucks and that’s a pretty huge game So it’s all over the place now. I’m not sure if we’ll see anything past the sixty price point though That’s that’s expensive at least for you and I mean, you know, I’m willing to pay a pretty penny for a game, you know, like like You know 60 bucks for a game. But I mean, yeah It adds up, you know, there’s a lot of games in a month that I want to buy like this month alone There was spider-man and Shadow the Tomb Raider that’s 120 bucks right there Yeah Add $10 to that that’s you know, and it starts to add up, you know Especially there’s a lot of games that you want to play in a month and you’re not willing to wait for them They get a price drop, you know I I just think that would be very shitty practice If you know one company you you know, it takes one company to raise the price and everyone else jumps on to it You know it is it it’s it’s just like with you know pain for online play playstation was freed Nintendo was free. But Xbox was like, oh we can we can charge people $60 a year and they they’ll pay for it well, here we go PlayStation jumped on and now officially Nintendo has jumped on so You know who’s winning in this in this scenario? The freaking freaking company is exactly and even spider-man you had to to preorder the game like if you were to pre-order at Amazon you had a Costume if you preorder the collector’s edition you add another costume so there’s no way to get all the costumes if you want them and There’s a lot of huge fan of spider-man that are disappointed just because of that and you can buy something like individual costumes on the PlayStation Store to Souter there’s Microtransactions, you don’t have to buy it to don’t have to like if you like you said if it’s only cosmetic I have no problem with that but it’s if part of the story or something that will really help you during the gameplay and Like a little bit like pay to win. I have a problem with that for sure. Yeah. Yep Yep, that answer the question perma Fox. I hope you enjoyed it The next segment of the show, I forgot to tell you about that before the podcast, but I change the name Segment yeah surprise me. Yeah. Oh you saw that? No I said Before it was called PlayStation from the past. I didn’t like it. So Now, it’s PlayStation. Memory. Oh You like that like a memory card? Yeah, you like that. I do. I think it’s good name. Okay, so we’ll keep it then The game is in famous. Can you talk about the infamous series as all? You add the ID so I’ll let you begin man so infamous is infamous for being the game that was free for people who Had PlayStation during the giant hack, okay? So lots and lots and lots people played this game for free and it was worth it was worth it Infamous is like the first game will always hold a special place in my heart And I think I even put it on No, I put two on my list of top ten But the infamous one was still one of those games that I really really really really enjoyed It was basic enough that you could learn to control it really quickly and the powers were awesome I loved using electricity and stuff like that looks going around the city I loved all the boss fights and all the different enemies you can fight I loved the Paragon and renegade options but being good or being bad I thought that was a great idea to put in the game to choose the way you want to play Even in like in the newest ones second son like yeah You’re good and bad options they differ but they’re really not that different No, but infamous 1 & 2 like there were things that completely changed the game around like if if the garbage Queen whatever Her name was we’re not the garbage Queen, but the mud queen the one who was thar if you sided with her She’s her enemy her Her dues would help you instead of fighting against you there in the whole in the whole area So I thought that was just a great way to evolve and change this game from being like a basic third-person open-world adventure to something different and it was really special to me because it was the first game that I played where you had that choice most games You’re stuck to being either the good guy or that well, I guess you’re really never the bad guy but you could choose to be the good guy bad guy, and I thought that that was like Perfect. You know it Elevated the game. Definitely a fisherwoman. I completely agree with you. The first game was really special for me, too Like you said the gameplay was really special and the good and bad was really great too I it was kind of a rough game in terms of gameplay and like detection of the collisions – The second game is my favorite of the series for sure and by far The characters were really funny – and the ending Was really special. I don’t know if you remember the ending Mm-hmm, and especially the bad ending and that was something else I won’t spoil it for you guys. If you haven’t played it while it stood. It’s 2011 So you should plate it by now. But yeah, yeah Yeah, second game is really good. And you remember the festival of blood the DLC? Yeah. Yeah yeah, I thought that was like well once again, they’re like Elevating the game. I know I said that like three times now But it’s literally like they’re adding this new layer to it that you wouldn’t expect from a game like this For of course and you are in vampire. It was totally different – it was super cheap when it released so everybody bought it and Second son. I’m not a fan of I didn’t like Delson Even though I have is a is uh, oh You call that what I have my head man Figures a beanie avatar a beanie be all you have is beanie. Yeah It’s from its from infamous against and didn’t know that no, I didn’t know that it’s from the the collectors edition Actually, I mean it’s it’s a red beanie. I mean, yeah, but it’s called I saw San Francisco on this side. Oh The more you know, the more, you know, I think it’d be worth a million dollars one day No, there’s a lot of oh because I wear it Yeah Ii so yeah, I wasn’t like the graffiti and stuff like that were really cool edition. I didn’t like deals in The story was good, but nothing exceptional like the first two games. Our gameplay was really great, too And I especially I think I liked first light more than second son. Actually. I thought yet the game was more fluid with fetch and Yeah, that’s it. And 2014 now, where was it worse than it. Is that a dead series once again? It might be but I mean, I think insomniac took so much time to make spider-man I think they put infamous on the back burner. I think we still will see a infamous game though Yeah, probably but it’s not insomniac it sucker punch though. Oh, that’s right. I got a mixed up Yeah, a psycho punch is working on that ghost of Tsushima. Yeah, so I think I think they’re gonna work on that game not Spider-man they’re gonna work on that game And then they’ll come back with infamous. I think I think that’s yeah. Okay. Okay. I think they fucked yourself a little bit with second son honestly, I Don’t know cuz I like I liked how you could change Powers sure the TV one was kind of dumb and the rock one was a little lackluster but I’ve really enjoyed going between smoke and neon like I thought that was a perfect combination to Different ends of the spectrum in terms of of what they are, you know. Yeah. They had this such a good character in coal and I Don’t know why they change a character the main character. Honestly, it wasn’t bad, right? They tried to get the series of fresh-faced and I don’t think it worked out for him. No for sure So that that’s pretty much it man. That’s yes. We got to another we got to the end of another one Yeah, a long one man. I like that. I like that So that’s pretty much it for ID episode 6 of Chronicles.
