For the dedicated, and for those in thrall to motor racing, Gran Turismo Sport's shaping up to be quite the proposition. For the rest? There's not so much, and Sport's particular pursuit looks to come at the expense of its broader appeal.
It's not soccer. It's not American Football...
Is that Jack Black or just someone doing a Jack Black impression? Because if it's the latter then I smell a lawsuit! Regardless, looks rubbish...
Yeah, I can definitely guarantee that’s a Jack Black impersonator. It sounds like the dude that plays me in the Kung Fu Panda TV show.
And as the final hour beckoned, I let out one long, loud fart, a scented lament for this once glorious series.
Sagnier, who took over from Rod Cousens in April last year, is predictably pleased with the result, assuring us that there was "no financial element" to deal whatsoever, meaning he's significantly bolstered his team with proven talent in a deal which has cost his company nothing at all.
This is MS at its best; fumbling around then picking themselves back up.
On the plus side, Io has been regularly updating the game with new free content...
One obvious question then is: Why doesn't Square Enix just fund the game? Well, frankly, we don't have any plans to make a new Fear Effect game ourselves
This means that, while of course we retain the ownership to the Fear Effect IP, the developer will then get to have creative control over the project.
Of course, we still have a vested interest in the final quality of the game, so as with any other project published by Collective, our producer will work with Sushee and help with anything as appropriate. It's fair to say that, as the IP owner, we'll have approval rights on what's released[...]
The complaints of "shit writing" you describe were exclusively focused on that one trans character, on Minsc's GG jab and on the presence of many capable female NPCs in the game world. Surely people would have mentioned other examples that don't come across as butthurt knee-jerk reactionary if the game was such shit across the board, right?
Unfortunately for the "critics", the 'it's not about bigotry, but about bad writing' excuse sounds and looks exactly like a smokescreen.
Hideo Kojima surprised many when he announced that he's racist...
"Yes you can play the full game offline after you have downloaded an episode," the rep confirmed, "but there are live elements which you will need to access online.
Can I play HITMAN offline or do you have to be connected all the time?
You will be able to play the locations and missions offline. To play the live events, download updates or see things like leaderboards, you’ll need to be online.
As we’ve said before, we want to shape the game with the people playing it and by going down this route we believe we’re creating the best possible base for success. We will be able to respond much faster to feedback, analyse player behaviour and implement changes on a regular basis that simply wasn’t possible before.
"When we announced Hitman, we explained to fans and to gamers everywhere how we are creating a live game,"
"It is possible to enjoy the locations offline, but in order to ensure player-progress of the live content is correct and up to date, the save states for online and offline are kept separate."
This is a constantly evolving, living world of assassination, that will grow alongside the community with frequent content updates in between the launch of each location. This live content includes new contracts, escalation contracts, elusive targets, and even additional challenges.
Disconnected on = working flawlessly.
Wow angry rant I must say. I bought the game yesterday and it disconnected once, while I was in the menus between missions. It has worked flawlessly otherwise.
I don't care about always online because it almost never actually bothers me. But I can understand it's not great if you're not in a city with a variable internet connexion.
Funny, you don't even talk about how the game is interesting or not. Nope, technical issues that will be fixed with some time. Like it was the most important thing. But I kinda agree, a missing sniper icon in the menu makes the game unplayable.
