  1. So long as the political discussion is level headed and constructive I welcome it. Has to be the appropriate amount as well. For as much as politics impacts games, it is still only one, often small, aspect that defines what games are, what they can be, and how they are made. I will say that I don’t care to read game reviews that bloviate about a single aspect (graphics, story, etc), and politics/social issues is no exception.
  2. Visually I can’t imagine we’ll see much of gap. Loading and asset streaming however is where I suspect one console will have a clear leg up. Possibly frame-rates too when streaming is the bottleneck. Who knows which system that will be; both Sony and Microsoft are looking to innovate in this department.
  3. Live stage gameplay demos are becoming a lost art in a sea of trailers and fluff teasers. Good on Square Enix for delivering; this is the most competent they have looked in years.
  4. Looking forward to FFVII. It may not have a traditional battle system, but it's still as close as we'll get to a classic Final Fantasy from Square Enix. Can't remember the last time Square Enix put out a FF game that lived up to the name for me. Enjoyed FFXV, warts and all, but by the series standards it was a bit of a mess.
  5. I see Days Gone as a much more active game than RDR2 between the bike, combat, and its flavor of open world systems. Also, while both tittles take a while to ramp up, you definitely get to explore and accomplish more in Days Gone’s world in the first 6-8 hours compared to RDR2. There is just soo much exposition to sit through in Read Dead’s opening.
  6. Is plagiarism, when your job is to give your critical opinion, not lazy?
  7. "Lazy" would have to be an armchair critic's preferred term.
  8. I very much doubt the designs in Rage 2 were a product of laziness. For a topic about understanding it's a pretty inconsiderate way to describe the developers work.
  9. Soo.... where does this leave Sloth in the Goonies? How lazy of a writer is Steven Spielberg...right? (No one at Avalanche is lazy. Find a better term.)
  10. Well at least that’s one less column in EA’s next Early Acess chart.
  11. At least in terms of viewership numbers on twitch and YouTube, the streamers speaking positively of the game are reaching a much larger audience than the negative review outlets, at least when it comes their video outreach. There’s also likely an Avengers: Endgame bump. Days Gone is featured before the the movie trailers begin. Off topic, but I really enjoyed the movie despite its 70’s Metacritic score.
  12. What would a discernibly more advanced Xbox console even look like compared to what we we know about the PS5? To make a notable visual impact, the GPU hardware alone could get very spendy. Maybe the difference would be more performance related with the CPU and RAM speeds? MS could also have a similar ace up their sleves with the SSD, who knows.
  13. I don’t doubt that Microsoft is positioning themselves to come out on top in a pure numbers game. They probably want DXR to be their big differentiator and the key selling point, at least for the premium console. Think MS and Sony will have a very different focus this time around.
