  • Enjoy the show!

  • Aww, I was hoping to hear you guys’ thoughts on Sword Art Online -Hollow Fragment- being the best selling Vita game of 2014 on PSN (Sid said he was as surprised as some of us readers/listeners were!), but you didn’t say anything about that list…..

  • I’m stoked to play borderlands on the ps4.

  • Cant wait to hear it!

  • The goddess’ younger sisters in Re;Birth2 represent various handhelds: Nepgear is more or less based on the Sega Game Gear, Uni is the PSP, while Rom and Ram together cover the Nintendo DS. As there is no Microsoft handheld, there is no younger sister for the Leanbox faction’s goddess.

    Re;Birth2 is itself a remake/port of Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2, which came out on PS3 a few years ago.

  • DmC, TLOU, GTA5, Sleeping Dogs and now Borderlands2. I love all these remasters but it’s such a shame not a single one of them features stereoscopic 3D. On PS3 so many games pulled off 3D with flair but suffered from low resolutions. Now with the power of the PS4 we finally have the hardware to do these games justice in 3D with these remasters, yet NONE of them even bother! I’m most disappointed with Insomniac and especially Naughty Dog because they absolutely killed it with the 3D in Uncharted 3, it was freakin’ incredible, and yet they’ve completely squandered it with TLOU on PS3 and PS4. All these remasters are huge missed opportunities, it’s my biggest disappointment this generation so far and has forced me to migrate to PC where I’m enjoying Shadow of Mordor in 3D despite the fact my rig is 5+ years old.

    The PS4 is more than capable of 3D but it’s being squandered, such wasted potential. I know Sid and Justin are 3D fans – how about bringing this topic to light once and for all? Let’s not use Morpheus as an excuse.

  • I’d love to listen to this podcast but it’s not really objective it’s OK to not like certain games

  • Screw your podcast and your company…you changing the 10% off on preorders and arranging the store to have bare bones discounts before the 10% off was the last straw.
    You’ve become so greedy!

  • @5 Uni, Rom, and Ram also cover their current-gen counterparts (Vita and…well, that other handheld.)

  • Another great episode :)

  • @Ryan kudos to you fine sir, your pronunciation was indeed correct! I cant wait for The Order but Resident Evil Remastered and Grim Fandango Remastered will hold over till Feb 20th. Great Episode guys, again!

    P.S. I had never heard of Red Letter Media untill you guy mentioned it a few months back so thank you sooo much for that!! Now, would you like some pizza rolls?

  • Happy 150th blogcast!! Looking forward to listening as always.

  • Good pronunciation, Ryan. It is Martín. I stand by what I said, you guys crack me up.

  • DMC looks great on PS4, but how about DMC for Vita (not just remote play)? It would be awesome to see the original Devil May Cry Trilogy on the Vita and play it on the go without having to worry about the wifi issues.

  • May Cry Trilogy on the Vita, please!

  • I normally moan when it comes to remasters, but DmC should really benefit from 60fps, so I’m all over it. I think it will be one of just a few remasters we get this gen that will actually be worth it. And hey, if any developer deserves the extra cash, it’s Ninja Theory (and Naughty Dog…wink,wink, Uncharted Trilogy on PS4 nudge nudge).

  • don’t worry guys I’ll explain the Captain America joke lol I actually explained it in an email but you guys get so many I’m sure it got lost in the shuffle.

    basically I was making fun of how Sid got really excited over discovering old technology for the first time (DVR) lol just like Captain America does in the movies because he’s from a different time.

  • I second supvic on the 3D…there are many gamers that love 3D and its being pushed away.
    I actually won’t even purchase some games for lack of it like for example if the new stardust fails to implement it I’m afraid I will not be purchasing it…also a request how about some 3D retro style games!

  • I formally request Ryan’s “Nerd” voice as a DLC voice for my Ghost in Destiny. Or even just a show segment where he reads various Grimoire cards in the voice lol

  • Really hyped for DmC HD on the PS4. Loved the game to death. On another note, #150! Good work guys!

  • I’m happy that DmC is getting another chance and it’s awesome that Ninja Theory is taking fan feedback to heart in this re-release.
    1080p60, Reworked combat system, all the DLC and sharing combo videos on social media?

    I’m tempted ;)

  • this game looks fresh

  • Sid skipping ahead to read my 2015 list first made my month. I’m almost famous!

  • Here is something no one is talking about. I buy a game from a store like walmart or gamestop, I get home and load my new game on my Ps4. I scroll over to it and press down to goto the overview and there it is highlighted in blue “Buy game.” I just bought the game. Why is there still the option to buy it from PlayStation store in the overview of the game that I already bought? PlayStation you are getting a little pathetic. It truly is all about the money, isn’t it. Your greed is the reason we can’t upload our own music on to our “next-gen” consoles.

  • Thanks for the Star Wars talk. I agree with the general opinions on the prequels and the cautious optimism with the new movie.

    Big week in news. The handsome edition and no-subscription elder scrolls have officially pushed my “want” list larger than my “time to play” list in 2015.

    And reading these comments I have to respectfully disagree with the disappointment in lack of 3D games. I personally hate the effect, and the eye strain that is always involved for me.

  • Sweet! This is gonna be Awesome! I AM DEFINITELY BUYING A PS4!
