It reminds me of the biggest complaint I had with Dishonored. 'We've given you over 20 different neat and interesting ways to kill your opponents, each with unique animations and multiple applications! ...But, if you want the good ending, you should just choke and tranq everyone all game, rendering 3/4s of the skill trees irrelevant.'
The move to the current-gen machines has its plus and minus points: this is well-crafted game with visuals that offer a truly generational leap over anything the franchise has delivered in the past, and there's no denying that this is a handsome game - especially when rendered in the Pro and X's high resolution modes. Either of these offer the best way to play in our opinion, but we're still some way short of what could be the definitive experience.
XB1 is officially struggling with open world games. The 25fps with 864p or thereabouts has been a common theme in the last year. Feels like the latest iterations of engines are not playing nice with it anymore. Time to go X1X, folks. You know you want to.
Sonic O6, with its broken gameplay and its bestiality love twist.
I think it's clear that Sony are releasing more first party exclusives
I can't see how it's in the consumer interest to take away the commercial pressure for first party games to maintain their quality...
I always say: Don't whore out your first-party exclusives. They should be your crown jewels. And now I'm saying don't give them away for free.
MS clearly aren't going to up their first party output to Sony or Nintendo levels and then give all those away for £7.99. This tells me MS aren't going to release more than a few first party games a year
But let's agree to disagree there, mate
There are annoying technical issues in the Soulsborne series for sure (frame rate can really tank on consoles in some cases), but I don't think it has anything to do with the way the narrative is presented. These games typically have a *lot* of content too.
Regarding the (kind of silly) 'git gud' thing: Just to be sure my first post was just a tongue-in-cheek reference to that 'git gud' meme, just in jest :)
Anyway, of course I respect your opinion and all, even if I don't agree.
I just like debating different opinions about things I love, especially with people that pack a punch in the well-argued debate department ;)
f there's ONE thing WYP does know, it's his fighting games, and ESPECIALLY Street Fighter.
Therefore, I don't agree.
