PYP 38: Central Characters

Mike, aka Scarfinger, and Henry, aka KnoxBroadcast, join Ace and Blue to discuss the gaming/enthusiast media and out two most anticipated games of 2014.  Henry and Blue debate the need for games to revolve around a central character.  It’s a solid debate that needs your feedback.  We also read feedback from last week’s show and the PC game specs question posted on Twitter.

In addition, there are over 20 minutes of Out-of-Order contemptible comments so please enjoy the discussion.  The amount of content in this show should make up for the long absence.  Thank you for listening and enjoy PYP 38.  Stay open.

What Up Fellas.
Great show and great debate. Scar was funny. I am glad you had someone on the show who had a PS4, but Scar hurt the PS4 worse that Knox. He didn’t like any games, Killzone, Infamous, Uncharted, or Halo.

As far as the debate, I don’t think you need a strong character to have a successful game. BF4 and COD are very successful and know one remembers the characters. You need a strong character for a game to be game of the year, Last of US, Uncharted, the Walking Dead. Destiny will be a huge success in 2014. Xbox fans have been waiting for another Halo type game, and the Sony fans will get to see what Bungie is all about. I believe it will have the most sales behind GTA5,and COD.

Knox said Xbox One is saving him money because he doesn’t have to buy a caputure card. The PS4 is going to have an update in the next few weeks to take care of that. It seems Knox thinks the Xbox One is a better value. In terms of games the PS4 is a much better value. As a dad with three kids and a cheap gamer, PS Plus is great. I have played video games for thirty years, but until PS Plus I have never played so many great games. Warframe, Resogun(Defender& Galaga in one game in beautiful 1080P),Tomb Raider,DCUO, Planetside 2 coming, Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Outlast, Dead Nation, and about 10 other AAA games and several indies. You get games on your PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. PS Plus makes the PS4 such a better value the Xbox One.

Why all the hate on indie games. There are only so many AAA games that come out. The rest of them are indie games. The Xbox 360 had great indie games, Castle Crashers, State of Decay, Braid, Splosion Man. It seems with the parity clause on the Xbox One the developers have chosen the PS4.

Games I am looking for to: Planetside 2, Watch Dogs, GTA 5, the Order 1886, and Dragon Age( RPG action with remote play on the PS Vita)

What good exclusives are coming out for Xbox One in 2014 ? Halo 2, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark. Halo 2 is probably the best one.

What good exclusives are are coming out for the PS4? MLB the Show, Planetside 2, Driveclub, The Order 1866.

Scar dogged the Killzone single player story, but what FPS has a great single player story. To me they all seem the same. Someone killed you relative or friend then you go get revenge, or you try to save the world. Go here killed these dudes, go there kill those dudes, etc. BF4, COD, Killzone, they are all pretty much the same to me.

Killzone and Infamous are both beautiful games. Just check out the photo mode in Infamous.

Blue on OFR you said Xbox was going to win March by at least 150K. Well suprisingly Titanfall didn’t help the Xbox One win March.

Great Show keep up the good work. E3 is almost here.
