It wasn’t running on the PS4 for the PS4 E3 presentation. There is NO WAY the PS4 is capable of what they showed without being pre-rendered. These new systems are indeed more powerful than their predecessors… but not by THAT much,
I need to play through TW2 because at the time I had a computer that could barely run it and a slow HDD so load times were awful, and a particular boss fight caused me to die over and over, and load and load.
The game is difficult, and on some of the higher difficulties… dare I say Dark Souls level of difficulty at parts.
I loved hte game, but I told myself I’d get an SSD first. Now I have an SSD…. so I’m seriously considering going back because I loved what I played. I just sucked at it.
Honestly, I loved this game until I (apparently) won too many games and started playing against people with 10 Legendaries in their deck (I have 0-1 depending on the deck), and Legendaries are insanely, insanely overpowered making Hearthstone a P2W game at the upper levels.
Even in “Casual” mode I spent most of my time playing against people with WAAAAAY better cards than me, and cards like Ysera need a nerf. Big time. There needs to be a limit to legendaries-per-deck not just limits to a single card.
If women are untouchable in a violent game, they are being treated as princesses, damsels, etc etc. But if the women are in the violence, then it’s “promoting violence against women.”
This is why so few people make games with Women as the main protagonist. Even do, remember when Lara Croft was tied up in a chair and people were screaming “RAPE SCENE!!!!” Remember that scene in Tomb Raider? Yeah…. it was nothing like that.
I can’t believe I went to that AWFUL Wildstar party instead. That was a complete dud.
I’m not sure I agree. I felt it was a good length, and towards the very end the battles started getting long, but easy. I never did the DLC beause although I LOVED the game, I was done with it at the end.
You WOULD say that.
That’s the #1 reason I haven’t pre-ordered it yet. I still have a month for PC, but I think I’ll set up my preorder tonight.
Honestly, if you’re having problems that early on just skip to Dark Souls. The first (real) boss is still a bit tough, but that’s normal. After taht the next 2-3 are easier, and about 4 bosses in there’s a tough one, then 5-7 are easy, repeat.
I think that’s what Phil is saying has changed in this one, it seems less spotty and more consistant of a ramp.
It sounds like Dark Souls 2 gets more difficult as you go through the game as opposed to Dark Souls 1 actually getting easier as you quickly overpower the enemies that only catch up to you in New Game ++++.
If this assessment is accurate through the entire game, I’ll be very happy as I feel it did not in Dark Souls.
Are you referring to the “Safe” ending or the “True” ending? I hated how you needed to do “Safe” before “True” was even an option. That was absolutely bullshit and the #1 reason I haven’t bothered to get VLR.
Buuuuuut… knowing they have Flowchart movement kinda negates that problem. Good to know.
Are we talking about the “puzzles” like trying to find a way out of your room before it floods? If that’s true, then it depends on how they do it.
If the very first room goes from:
“Oh shit, the room is filling with water! Where’s the key!? Oh shit I’m gonna drown!”
“Oh shit, the room is filling with water! I should probably leave the room now.”
That’s like saying “We’re going to take the suspense out of horror movies and just cut to the part where the girl gets stabbed.” It’s actually altering the story, especially later in the game. It isn’t like To The Moon which, if you took the puzzles out, the game would actually be BETTER…. they play an important role in the story in 999.
If they replace these scenes with you reading about Junpei struggling to escape the room and solving the puzzle himself, I’m okay with that… I guess. Still kinda stupid, but not nearly as bad.
Eh, too many fans. That thing probably whirls like a dryer filled with towels. Even if they are 120mm. That’s just excessive beyond the point of practicality.
Also more like Facepalm for spending $600 on a video card when you’d see ZERO difference between that and a $250 one on DS2. =P
Your icon says apple, your name says android, and you’re running Windows 7.
Sorry, random observation
despite being a popular opinion, only this thread remains of a discussion that apparently cannot be had.
It’s a branch off the sewers, I believe.
Most credible websites will not raise hell over rumors or speculation. (We aren’t 100% sure at this point.)
That said, I’m surprised Kuchera hasn’t written a piece on it.
I’m not so sure you remember what the PS2 looked like. I mean, it isn’t fantastic, but early/mid PS3 is more accurate.
Max in-game settings or nVidia Inspector? I’m asking that because I haven’t seen said footage to compare… but most games have really awful “max” settings that can easily be overwritten with drivers.
Are these games really otome? I’d figure they’d be targeted towards 12 year old boys, not girls.
I tend to like the artwork in many NIS titles, and the gameplay looks interesting… but my interest is always kicked by stupidly dressed female characters. “Enslave your enemy…. …..with a fetish pose?”
I guess that’s kinda what NIS has become known for lately, I rather miss the times of Phantom Brave, La Pucelle:Tactics, and Sakura Wars. Those always had the… eccentric elements but lately they’ve been overdoing it.
Would you like to repeat that?
No, it’s PS4 because Sony paid them to make it PS4. No other reason.
I say this because I’m QUITE certain that a PS4 is not capable of the right pic, specifically the lighting.
Are we sure the right pic isn’t PC? (I know it’s from the PS4 dog and pony, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t running on a PC.)
I’m an Ubisoft fanboy. (What of it?) But even I have to agree with the AC3/FC3. I didn’t mind ACIV so much because I approached the side-objectives piecemeal instead of all at once. Mixing up the side and story quests provided enough variation that I was okay with it.
3 on the other hand, nothing could save that game.
