The most popular arguments in favour of Xbox One DRM

AnokhaID

5 years ago

Damn.. I am a PS guy, but I really did think that MS had something good in that "share with your family" feature. And now these "leaks" about the 15-60 minute restriction on that planned feature have taken away that last bit of hope that I had for MS making a competitive console.

Nearly the same hardware specs, a mandatory Kinect (that doesn't even have any good games on the radar yet), a lack of support for Indies, historically lesser value compared to a PS+ subscription, a US-oriented TV-TV-TV focus... AND more expensive to boot (thanks to Kinect - the albatross around XBone's neck). I doubt that their console would be ab;e to understand any voice commands in my Indian accent, so there goes another hyped-up feature. I am not too impressed by the game lineup either, I always preferred Sony's exclusives to Xbox's. In fact, the only interesting "innovation" for me is the touchpad on the PS4 controller. I expect game-types like RTS/RPGs to use it extensively, and control improvements elsewhere using this feature.

It was an easy choice before, but it's not even a choice any more. There's just one sane option available..

4? :O I was expecting a 6 or 7, considering that server issues should be only temporary and that AI problems will probably be patched. Taking a long-term view, this game should have been rated much better than frikkin' Aliens: Colonial Marines (rated 3/10 on EG)!

@Mr-Writer Yes, that is what I was reminded of as well. And Minecraft. But what isn't clear is the actual scope/scale offered by these move-based tools. Can we collaborate to create whole worlds & characters and script our own minigames? They sure seem to be saying something like it.. Maybe we can look forward to seeing stuff similar to Minecraft's community creations, but in high-def graphics.

Cool gameplay, but I just hope they don't overpower the guy and make the game a cakewalk (am not a fan of Assassins' Creed enemy AI). I am not sure if the game forces you to actually think through your options and the resulting consequences. If all the options result in the same "F*&K-DA-POLICE, I-AM-GOD" ending then it will be just GTA with a different backdrop and tools.

On paper this suggests an advantage for Microsoft's platform, but the reality is that the frame-rate only hits maximum capacity while looking at the ceiling.

@grassyknoll I agree. The wailing, the fall-friendly cliffs and staircases, and then those godawful Maneaters! But it was the troll, mosquito and slug-infested poison swamp that made me cringe the most. Wade through muck, health bar receding constantly, and then meet the business end of a raging black phantom's meat cleaver... That game left vivid memories. x_x

Demon's Souls, without any wiki spoilers/tips, worked pretty well on the horror front for me.. Constant dread. Especially on the first playthrough when any grunt around the next corner could kill you if you are not careful. And each of the worlds were brilliantly spooky environments! I would pay full price anytime for that kind of stuff.

Saturday Soapbox: Buy-to-let gaming

The cup of goodwill for this game runneth over; folks don't even want to wait for a review before making pouty faces and clenched fists. :lol: I wait for a couple of months after any AAA title's release. That's when the "So there is this game we rated 10/10 but really isn't all that.." themed articles/rants start coming out of the woodwork.

The crafting microtransaction might just be a feature catering to A.D.D. gamers who want to nuke their way through quickly. I don't think they would risk making the game a grindfest for the players who don't splurge on extra guns, 'cos that would only result in fewer people buying the basic game.

Anyway, I don't care much as long as From Soft doesn't introduce microtransactions to do away with their vision of grinding.. Now that could bring out my pouty faced avatar.
