    Same. I'll get MGSV, because it's obvious that Kojima put a ton of dedication into it.

    But Konami's practices have been disgusting regarding this.
    And in general.
    I'm not buying any more MG games unless they have Kojima involved. They basically ripped it out of his hands because he was spending more money than they liked, and went "You don't even get credit for this. It's mine, now."

    It's ridiculous.
    I'll stick with my classics.
    Fuck em.

    Same here. I'd still like to get MGSV but... Nothing else.

    Reminds me of an edit of this Nedroid comic someone posted on here, only that version had Kojima and Konami. I don't remember where it was posted, though.

    You know, as much as I love Arkham City, playing as Nightwing shows the combat has some real flaws (and not just his lack of voice acting).

    1) Nightwing only responds to most button inputs, either misinterpreting the others or ignoring them completely, thereby resulting in a lost combo at the least or getting hit

    2) You won't always get the bonus for doing a round in a single combo, even if you did the round in a single combo. The game appears to arbitrarily refuse to acknowledge your effort and count one combo as multiple, and that seems to be the case when using the Batclaw Slam move, at least if you start a round with it.

    I'm playing on the PS3 because I both don't have a 360 copy anymore and I deleted all associated content from that platform to free up space. I already earned almost all the trophies on the 360, so I hardly need to do it again on the PS3, but this is a great game and only the predator maps and challenge campaigns are a pain (mostly the latter); everything else can be handled pretty damn well with a bit of practice.

    Though they could have balanced the other characters better: Nightwing and Catwoman have fucking awful detective/thief vision; Robin and Catwoman have less armor than Batman and Nightwing; Catwoman has a wanting weapons setup (her batarang should be the bolas, not the whip); and only Batman has the critical disarm-and-destroy move.

    I need to stop playing this and get back to Arkham Knight, and at some point get to work on Arkham Origins.
    Sega does what Nintendon't.

    There's nothing inherently wrong with splitters, just roll the dice and hope you don't get a crappy one.

    Yeah, that's what I figured. Was just wondering if anyone actually had a brand to recommend or something. Maybe my best bet would be to go with a well-known brand and check the reviews.

    Oh, I just hooked up my PS3 and the 360 to my TV. PS3 works like a charm, but the 360 is LOUD AS HELL. Thing sounds like it's going to explode! But the thing is, it's been so long since I powered it on, I can't remember if this is what it always sounded like. :I Also, I'm sitting closer to it, so there's that. It doesn't eject the disc right, which I also forgot about. I have to give it a couple of thumps each time... Now I'm starting to remember why we stopped playing with this console. :/

    At least the other consoles are doing fine. Not sure if I should open up the 360 again or not. At least I could clean the dust from it and see if that helps.

    It's obnoxious in every way imaginable. There's a reason it's the console of the bros.
