  1. Beat this today, they did a good job wrapping it up and having a conclusive ending here. l started the dlc and I’ll run through that in the next day or two just to play more, but there really isn’t any need to return to these characters or stories for a franchise. Should be a one and done. Just make a similar game with the “Ghost of” name if they want to do a sequel, but everything besides the core gameplay should be totally different. Maybe stick to the East for its locations. Great game and while it was very Assassins Creed, it was also that in a way that felt less bloated and was more like what I want them to be.
  2. Can I mention how the deck will technically play more Nintendo games than the switch to try to make this argument even weirder?
  3. Just thinking of deck replacing switch as a system parents get for their children, that just feels so far away from current reality to me.
  4. Also i want to mention that the way the topic title was written, I legitimately expected that part of this would be about Kanye cumming on a photo of Kim and posting it online. Like I kinda half expected that when I clicked to enter.
  5. I just think it’s wishing for more of an impact for the deck than even Valve expects along with everything else, and even then I’m feeling different market sets for the two. I mean anything could be anything I guess, I’m just not seeing it at all, agree to disagree!
  6. I think to me, it’s just that they already beat the psp easily, destroyed the vita and kicked Sony out, and now we have a challenger that is on the more expensive side, and is a pc, which historically have never really competed with dedicated gaming systems as they attract different audiences. It’s almost impossible to challenge Nintendo on handhelds because for too many people the two are not interchangeable because of franchises like Animal Crossing and Pokémon. I feel you are letting Wiiu’s failure leak too much into their handheld business and where Nintendo is as a company in 2022. Edit: And their most recent and biggest challenger is mobile, not psp. I’d say it still is, far far more than Deck.
  7. Can’t they just let Toys for Bob start working on Banjo Threeie now instead of having to wait over a year? Sigh, can’t believe we still have to wait probably another three years from now until the Toys for Bob developed Banjo is available.
  8. lol exactly the problem is that blizzard was always rapecore, they need to purge anyone management level and above
  9. Sony just needs to lock in Sega and Square and they can be the gamepass of the East.
  10. Blur Caesar Call of Duty Candy Crush Crash Bandicoot Diablo DJ Hero Empire Earth Gabriel Knight Geometry Wars Guitar Hero Gun Hearthstone Heroes of the Storm Hexen Interstate ’76 King’s Quest Laura Bow Mysteries The Lost Vikings Overwatch Phantasmagoria Pitfall Police Quest Prototype Quest for Glory Singularity Skylanders Solider of Fortune Space Quest Spyro the Dragon StarCraft Tenchu (legacy games) TimeShift Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater True Crime World of Warcraft Zork I’ll take new Spyro, Crash, Tenchu, Kings Quest, Phantasmagoria, Gun, Protoype, and Pitfall out of those.
  11. Im all for a THUG1/2 collection next but we ain’t skipping over 3. Im also excited for Call of Doom.
  12. I’m not sure how this in particular will be for the gaming landscape as a whole, I don’t think it’s going to tip the scales by itself in a major enough way to be devastating to the industry, so in this case I’m happy for the developers and IP’s that will now hopefully be released from COD hell.
  13. I feel like for this to work you have to erase basically the entire history of handheld video game systems and Nintendo’s absolute dominance throughout all of it despite many many would be challengers to the throne that had a lot more mainstream appeal than Steam Deck.
  14. Finished Spongebob Battle for Bikini bottom last night, VERY solid Mario 64 style 3D platformer! Probably the best licensed one I can think of and in general on the upper end of the gender. Great level design throughout, changes up gameplay just enough with the three different characters, good times.
  15. Oh man I’m in the snow environment now and it’s just so damn pretty lol.
  16. The part where he talks about how he can’t hang out on forums anymore because everyone posts how they want them to die as their criticism now was sad.
  17. Oh man and R2 being “get on the horse” instead of triangle is fucking brutal on these poor horses.
  18. Finally back to this one and moved from the ps4 version via back comparability to the ps5 version. Not too much changed yeah, but I do like having lock on and the extra 25% resolution is actually noticeable to me since it kind of takes it more to my sweet spot of I don’t care it’s not native. And of course I have the other island now but I’ll check that laterz. Visually it’s so striking I don’t care that they didn’t add much actually, it’s really almost hard to play sometimes because I can’t stop looking at it lol. Great meeting of technology and art design here, this achievement of what they got out of the ps4 kind of got overlooked because of TLOU2 on release I feel. And at 60fps now it’s simply a gorgeous thing to gaze at. Nice show off for hdr on a new tv too. Im starting to get a hang of the combat again. I do like it overall but I don’t think I like the stance switching much. It’s not an interesting enough component to me to be worth the cumbersome nature or switching between them. Then mixing that with the way you switch between different bow types, ammo types, sub weapon types, it’s all a bit much in the middle of a fight. It’s like trying to do FF7R level of switching things up in menus during a slow down period that is less forgiving and in a game that doesn’t feel great to play that way. So that makes me tend to ignore some of the systems at play but that’s fine, it doesn’t really get in the way but they could have mapped and handled that better. I also don’t like how block is lb instead of rb and you can’t change it beyond global settings. I do however like how the combat animations and everything looks killer and the deaths feel absolutely brutal. The core feel of it is great and even better now with dual sense. Not the most raving second impression but I really am quite enjoying it despite some qualms! I also think I’m being extra picky coming right off FF7R which I really really liked.
  19. Best is actually right though, depending on how you look at it. I do think things will look better than the Matrix demo this gen, they just won’t be pushing certain technologies on display as far as the demo does. But they will also use clever tricks and such to get close while not being a low IQ choppy mess like the demo is. So the scales will overall tip in the favor of the actual games that look good all around, not just impressive in some (many!) areas. As impressive as the demo was, I’m not sure if I really want to play a full game that looks exactly like that (image quality and frame rate) unless of course it was on pc also as that probably is possible today at good IQ/fps.
