God of War review: astonishing technological craft in the service of simple pleasures

@chucklepie

To me, recommended is an 8/10, I think I'll believe the other sites over this one :)
That's nice and everything, but they specifically got rid of ratings out of 10 so people would make their own mind up based on the content of the review, rather than an subjective and arbitrary number.

Just because to you 8/10 is a recommend, doesn't actually mean a recommended is 8/10...

"This is far, far from a bad game - it's enjoyable in its own way, and you're certainly never short of things to do. There are zip-lines to chase down, towers to climb, dialogue trees to wander through, items to craft and a tech tree to explore; it's an exhaustive checklist of every trope of the modern day open world game where every component is at the very least competent. The core combat and aesthetic of Horizon Zero Dawn have been placed in fine focus; the rest, though, is something of an indistinguishable blur.

Horizon Zero Dawn is a work of considerable finesse and technical bravado, but it falls into the trap of past Guerrilla games in being all too forgettable. For all its skin-deep dynamism it lacks spark; somewhat like the robotic dinosaurs that stalk its arrestingly beautiful open world, this is a mimic that's all dazzle, steel and neon yet can feel like it's operating without a heart of its own.
I wouldn't say that review was "meh"

That is indeed what the website states: https://www.vive.com/cn/product/vive-focus-en/

Save the hassle of connecting to your phone or computer, simply put on VIVE Focus and enter the world where you are free to wander.

Examples? Never heard of it ever.

I know people can take advantage of exploits in old games that won't ever be patched because of their age, or use old consoles that have been modded, but I literally can't fathom how you could hack an Xbox One game with a wallhack and be able to play on Xbox Live.

Are you seriously saying that the Xbox One version of PUBG has wallhacks and aimbots?

No they can't

The closest people can get to 'cheating' would be to use XIM so they can use keyboard and mouse

@cooliowithdaflow

the thing about massively popular games is that it has its fair share of cheaters, and there is really no real way of dealing with them, one of the reasons why i quit playing CS:GO, because it was so unbearable, almost every match had a cheater that spoiled the fun for the rest of us.
There is one way. Play it on Xbox One (X)

It's janky as hell at the moment but no cheaters anywhere .

It's why I decided to play on Xbox One X. Yeah it's behind the PC in development terms but it's impossible to hack.

I guess there are players using XIM to play with keyboard and mouse, but those will be few and far between and it's more of an advantage than a cheat. Not really comparable to an aimbot or wallhack

I don't know why, but I just can't ever get in to JRPG's. I guess you can't be in to every genre of game.

First one I ever played was Final Fantasy VII on Playstation, I gave it a good 10 hours but decided it wasn't for me.

Recently I tried Final Fantasy XV on PS4 Pro, and played the starting area to get your car repaired and again, it didn't grab me at all.

Don't get me wrong - I love Japanese games like Mario: Odyssey and Zelda but I really struggle to enjoy JRPG's :(
