Bayonetta 3 is coming exclusively to Switch

Bayonetta 2 was basically the reason I was keeping hold of my Wii U, and a sequel is great news. Might be time to upgrade...

Got a lot of respect for them for withstanding all the heavy criticism since release and making all these improvements. Games have been abandoned for disappointing on a much lower scale.

I cancelled my subscription earlier this year and I'm glad to be rid of it. I don't play online on my PS4 and the free games were nearly all games I had little interest in playing for the foreseeable future, if ever.

Destiny 2 expansion art points to Osiris, Rasputin add-ons

Dombat

1 year ago

The original Destiny season pass killed my goodwill and enthusiasm for this franchise. As others have said, announcing this so soon after the game itself and before they've even shown footage is just highlighting it as a cash cow and appealing to no one but the fanboys that will buy it anyway.

No Man's Sky changed the video game hype train forever

Dombat

1 year ago

Good article and I agree with its message.

I only watched the official trailers before release and never listened to any of Murray's interviews. I was fairly interested in the game but was always slightly sceptical and not fully absorbed in the hype.

The end result? I wasn't all that surprised at what the game turned out to be. I don't blame those that were surprised though and other developers should learn from the mistakes of Hello Games.

Obsidian announces new RPG Tyranny

Dombat

2 years ago

@Mwulf Yeah, I've never liked the corny voice-overs in trailers for fantasy RPGs that developers often come up with. They could've built more hype for me personally by revealing the game with some screenshots.

Anyway, I trust Obsidian and look forward to this.

Loved the concept of the first game, but they really need to break out of some of their open world action game design habits. If it's more of the same I'll happily ignore it like I do with their Assassin's Creed and Far Cry games these days.

Japanese RPG / RTS hybrid Project Phoenix delayed until 2018

Dombat

2 years ago

I backed this. Firstly, I'm patient about game delays, especially in Kickstarter where the initial date is wildly speculative and given before they had any idea of funding. Secondly, they have been clear from the start that they all have other jobs and this was an ambitious project.

The thing is, given the status of some of those working on this, and the $1m raised by the public, this huge set back over something that should have been sorted early on is pretty embarrassing and concerning.

I'd rather see an end product eventually that is worth playing than have a refund, and I accept that to give refunds is to give up on the project some of them have poured hours into. It's just a mess though, and I feel like they need to prove fairly quickly that it won't be vapourware as backer trust and enthusiasm is disintegrating.

Lords of the Fallen 2 loses exec producer Tomasz Gop, and changes direction

Dombat

3 years ago

Mixed feelings on this. When I played it I thought the story and dialogue was so bad it would have been better if they jettisoned it for a sequel and focused on combat and exploration.

It's good that they recognise it was weak and fair enough for wanting to improve it.

Destiny: The Taken King director defends 40 expansion price tag

Dombat

Buying the season pass at 35 went down as one of my biggest waste of money purchases in gaming ever. I won't be spending another penny on this franchise so they can charge what they want as far as I'm concerned.

Evidently if they keep this up they will continue to lose customers.

Sorry but arbitrarily padding out a game with loads of endless grinding does not constitute value for money in my eyes. The base game was questionable in this regard but the DLC and season pass is looking like an insulting rip off.

Why Silent Hill 2 is still the most disturbing game ever made

Dombat

4 years ago

SH2 is my favourite game in the series and possibly in my top 5 games of all time.

As well as having the best storyline in the series IMO it just got the psychology of horror right, for me. If anything I found it more disturbing on repeat playthroughs knowing what was coming up.

This is great for me personally - I have my Xbox One connected to a monitor rather than a TV and don't even have a TV in my current flat so I will get a lot out of this.

I understand why a lot of people would be cynical but they may as well get the TV functionality done well as they promoted it in the first place.

Why Unreal deserves to be remembered alongside Half-Life

Dombat

I don't think I played this unfortunately, but I played Unreal 2 and the first UT.

After checking a gameplay video of this, looking back at U2 it's biggest problem I think was how bland and lacking in atmosphere the environments were in the sequel. I can see why the original was loved though.

Pillars of Eternity: What is a "mundane fantasy" RPG?

Dombat

4 years ago

@MattEvansC3 Yeah, I realised EA hadn't actually published any of their games after I made the post. Still, there's a fair chance Obsidian have spoken to them in the past about projects that haven't materialised.

The concern about religion, racism and politics is a shame but I can imagine a lot of major publishers shy away from those issues in their games.

The point on (fantasy) settings though I stand by - EA and other publishers have shown they are very narrow minded in that department.

So Obsidian, when is Pillars of Eternity coming out?

Dombat

4 years ago

@George-Roper You're ignoring what they've said in this article and countless times before.

Kickstarters require that you give a fixed date before the Kickstarter goes live. Obsidian got far more funding than were expecting during the process, and rightly decided to invest it into expanding the game. This inevitably made it's original release date unrealistic.

Let them make the game to the standard they promised without it being a buggy mess... if that takes more time then so be it.

A tentative early release date is less important when people have waited years for something like this and want it done properly. Just be patient.
