@Caldwell
It would be nice if Rare could inject players who aren't absolute vile scum. Due to life in general I was two weeks late in starting SoT, and unfortunately all the Wankers have grouped up already, and those I would class as decent gamers have gone. Literally vanished.
I so looking forward to SoT, and.my disappointment is unrelenting.
Thank the Gaming God for Yakuza 6 tomorrow and God of War next week.

Wonder if the players that populated this game of incredible potential would be equally vile and toxic as they are Now?

Far Cry 5 review - a competent yet conflicted open worlder

Just give me Far Cry 6 in a world built by the lads and lasses who xreated Ghost Recon Wildlands. Hell,so.much of FC5 feels.torn from Wildlands regarding the open mission structure. But most of all,the sheer scale and variety of Wildlands just blows FC5 1 away.....and I love FC5

How video game heroes struggle with their identities

scuffpuppies

@Foxtrot-Oscar
You don't need to be similar to a character to identify with them. I have nothing in common with John Wick. I'm neither a mysterious hitman or mass murderer. But, I love my wife and I love my dog, and could identify with how devastated I'd be if my wife had died and Russian thugs beat my dog to death. You understand the character's pain and subsequent motivation that leads to his extreme response, regardless of it being a response that is completely alien to the world I live in, I was still able to identify with the character no matter how slight.

Acts of political inspired terrorism by whatever means, are not categorised in the same way as a nut-job with with an automatic weapon murdering children at a school. Both equally vile, but different in their motivation.

Just imagine how different the world might have looked if the fear mongers got their way in the 50's and had Superman comics outlawed for corrupting young minds to violence.
The exact same arguments were used then as they are now, and the inherent need to blame someone or something else for the insane things people do to each other will never change.

The absolute joy of PvE co-op through Monster Hunter has sold me on the mechanics more than any other game prior, even previous MH games. I sometimes literally want to reach into the screen and hug the other players after a tough fight. Remarkable feeling.

@Cordite
You mentioned my main concern immediately, "camping". As someone above wrote, in a game centred around loot, why risk taking the boss down yourself when you can just camp outside and take the loot in a much quicker, and faster fight?
In principle, this sounds like it will become incredibly irritating and dull pretty quickly.

There are actually numerous instances and side missions that includes or involves the player character standing for a woman's right to be seen as a male equal, and moments where women are depicted to be as strong emotionally and physically as a man.
Guess Rob didn't reach those parts before the review.

What platform are you on? I'm on the PS4, the loading times are pretty quick after the game has begun once the player selection etc has finished, and visually I think it's bloody lovely. To be honest, as a long timr Mh player, MHW is a digital dream come true.

I have to admit, I'm completely "survival gamed" out and any itch I might have is scratched by The Long Dark, but I was interested in this. Until however, Gearbox became attached.
Surely as developers are gamers too, they must know any involvement with Gearbox in any capacity will put a lot of people off.

@SwinnyUK
Then don't read reviews and don't concern yourself. The actual influence game reviews have on the sale of that particular game is debatable, especially in this climate of multiple media sources. Personally I only read or watch a review for a game after I've finished it; and that's just out of curiosity. If I think about it, I don't think a review has influenced my purchase in 40 years of gaming.
Equally I don't think you're giving enough credit to a lot of game critics passion and sincerity to the medium or the simple notion of personal opinion. For example, how Jim Sterling was crucified for rating Breath of the Wild in the 70 out of 100 range. People accused him of sucking up to Sony etc, not entertaining the possibility that he didn't really enjoy it.

Another example of how out of touch some marketing departments are with the consumer base. If they still have no idea how hated retail locked dlc is by gamers, in 2018, there is no hope for them at all.

Have to agree. I personally just finished the Frozen Wilds dlc, and in nearly 40 years of gaming I think it shows the best recreation of winter I've seen yet. In fact to be fair I feel Zero Dawn, in general has some of the best examples of landscape diversity to be found in this medium.
