I think it is largely spot on and exactly right. Thoughts?
I mostly agree with what he had written. I hold my heart for the future of this series as a whole.

I would say that the author is an idiot. Dark Souls is inferior to Demon's Souls in nearly every way.
Yes, I stopped reading there. Sold my copy of Dark Souls back to Amazon awhile ago. Although a great number of people still like Dark Souls more than Demon's Souls. :shrug:

I still have my copy, not sure why other than nostalgia. The other night I loaded upmDemon's Souls and went online. I started seeing player ghosts as soon as I materialized in the Nexus. At SL 124 it only took 7 minutes to be summoned in 1-3, as a party of three we stormed through and gave Penetrator a good beat down. Then I played through half the game with my SL 712, which is in NG+++++++. It was sad because it made me think how good Dark Souls could have been if they had chosen not to screw it up.

No firm date has been announced for them to be shut down, last update from Atlus was on the 2nd anniversary saying that they would be up into 2012.

Edit: Looks like the NA servers will go down at the end of May.

NG3 is the first game of the series that I didn´t buy. If Atsushi Inaba says that NG3 is a shitty game, I feel kinda acknowledged to not even renting this title.

MGSR is the first game to genuinely excite me since NG2. I love the hack and slash action genre like NG, and to me NG3 was really disappointing. So disappointing in fact that i now no longer play it. I did finish the UN mode though, just to prove that i could beat Hayashi's insanely cheap, unbalanced game. It's been shelved until i can be bothered to slug my way through the trials, i think i'll be doing that with Bigal and Shigurui sometime. I think the budget for NG3 was very low. Just slap it together, ship it out and hope for the best. That's the way i see it. IMO only Itagaki can make the NG games, and without him, i don't see any future for NG. It's really sad.

When i saw the trailer for MGSR the other day, i was like, man does this game look good. Slick and fast, excellent graphics and attention to detail. Like i said, it got me excited. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Anyone know what is the cheapest I can get NG3 for PS3 used? I have been looking around and still the cheapest I can find is around $42 to $45 which I don't think this game deserves.

Wait a few months for the games to stockpile, then take your pick.

Yeah, even on PLAY.com it's still £28. For some reason, this game seems to be holding its value.

That's what you get when you make your games mainstream.

When I was in EB games this morning they had it for $56.
Most shocking to me though is that the second closest EB to me has the collectors edition for $68 brand new, was $150 :laugh: :laugh:

Sounds like you're better off waiting for the now-inevitable Sigma version to be announced.

Who knows, if that's your first taste of NG3 you may well like it from the looks of things.


$42 is way too much for vanilla NG3. After buying that game full price and seeing the insane DLC nickel-and-diming only to watch all the features we asked for get held back so we can buy the ****ing game again, I really don't care how much TN adds to the next version- I'm never giving them another dollar.

Everything new in Razor's Edge will be exclusive for Nintendo. Nintendo is publishing the game so i think a DLC will not be release for Xbox/PS3. The only way it might happen will be with a Sigma version but i could be wrong.

If a Sigma is coming, then they should release the rest as free DLC.

NG2 was published by Microsoft as well. That did not stop NGS2 to come out on PS3 with loads of extras. I am sure they will re-release the game as a black/sigma version to make more money than release the same as patches or DLC.

New interview with Hayashi addressing NG3. It is good to see this----they have perhaps learned a lesson here and this will now bode well for future NG installments. I now would definitely love to see a Sigma/Black release of NG3 with this kind of mindset behind it (still definitely not getting a WiiU though).
