All these video games aren't going to play themselves.
Lots of new IP and sequels to get excited about.
Not only that but you can only leave feedback on successful transactions if you’re the seller. If some schlep wins your auction then decides “I changed my mind, sorry”. You can’t leave negative feedback against that buyer because it technically wasn’t a transaction. All you can do is log a complaint with Ebay, and I’m pretty sure that does exactly nothing.
Looks like you guys were having a lot of fun.
Well…..After spending all weekend with this game and finishing it on Hard mode, I have to say that this review is absolute bullshit. I know every person is entitled to his opinion, but there’s no way in hell this deserves a 7.5. It’s almost shocking how good TLOU is. Naughty Dog will have a hard time topping this.
Well I can immediately think of two publishers who will for sure opt to charge for license transfers…
Yeah that’s right, you better steer clear of that Game of Thrones time slot on Sunday. :p
I will not believe anything I read about this console until it’s literally out and real consumers are using it and reporting in on how it functions. I just keep hearing conflicting stories day in and day out.
“Xbox exclusive blah blah blah blah shooter blah blah blah blah multiplayer blah blah blah, timed call of duty exclusive DLC blah blah blah”
Looks like Microsoft’s console will be the go-to destination for exclusive shooters yet again. Not that I don’t love playing on my 360, but this strategy is beyond stale.
Unfortunately this game will also sell like a 7.5 because SONY FUCKING BLOWS AT MARKETING.
Looks okay. I’ll wait for steam version.
…you basically just repeated the section of my comment you quoted. :-\
But the final numbered score is determined by more than one person. And the score is what is ruffling everyone’s feathers, innit? ;)
Personally the review read like an 8.5 or 9 to me. I was a bit surprised to see the 7.5 at the bottom. A committee of editors apparently translated the written text as a 7.5 I sure didn’t!
I am not fixated with numbers!!!! By the way your comment contains 105 words.
I have felt that way with a handful of reviews from them.
I don’t understand why Gears is touted as having amazing gunplay. You sit behind cover and pump 1+ magazines into every thing that moves .Sure it AIMS okay, but it’s fucking boring having to pump 45 bullets into each and every enemy. They put in that ridiculous reload mechanic because you need those extra bullets becuase you just drained a full magazine into an enemy and it’s still alive. :-\ I just don’t find it that appealing.
That’s why its good to read more than one opinion.
Sort of. From Polygon’s explanation of their review scores: "Games are not scored until a review is written and finalized. Once a review is complete, the reviewer meets with a group of senior editors to determine which score on our scale properly reflects the text as written. "
So it’s about more than one opinion when it comes down to the final numbered score.
also you can throw items in the environment to distract enemies away from where you want to go or even use them as melee weapons in close combat.
I had a spiked club when dealing with them in the demo but they will often be unharmed after one melee attack, grapple you and kill you with an instant-kill. Other times I would be able to hit them twice upon which my melee weapon would break and become useless. You have to really pick and choose your fights and you can also stealth past enemies altogether.
I was let down by the demo. Towards the end of the demo you have to fight off 3-4 mutants and I died probably 10 times before I finally beat it. (that melee range insta-death is definitely annoying) Then I played through it again and realized you can just about completely stealth it through that sequence. The Uncharted games have me trained to start shooting first and ask questions later – I don’t think this approach works at all with The Last of Us but from the review it sounds like there are instances where TLOU forces you into these scenarios. The shooting mechanics didn’t feel that solid but I couldn’t decide if that was intentional (Joel is not great with firearms) or just a leftover of how shooting works in this game engine (Uncharted has always had kind of iffy shooting mechanics).
Still looking forward to to playing this next Friday. I must admit that review score made me flinch, but it’s just one man’s opinion. Nice review.
People canceling their kickstarters halfway through is like a sports team quitting halfway through a game in which they’re getting their ass kicked. It’s sad and pathetic, but also mildly amusing if you don’t particularly care for the team.
I’ve enjoyed all the fable games (even the 3rd one) but the original Fable is the only one I never played to completion so I will for sure be getting this!
She sure has some large thighs.
I’m sure Uncharted 2/3 and The last of us would look pretty close to next gen just bumped up to 1080p/60. I really can’t wait to see what Naughty Dog can do with the new hardware.
You make police sound like they are all serious all the time no nonsense cyborgs. The truth is, they’re human. I shared this story with my nephew, who is a member of a SWAT team, and he thought it was hilarious. I’m sure the officers didn’t feel like “their time was wasted”, cops will shoot the sh*t with you if you’re cool with them.
Can’t really blame those officers, that looks 100% real, and it’s a dude with a ton of tactical gear and a suppressed assault rifle. Funny story though, and that statue is badass!
I didn’t even have to play the demo for 5 minutes before I realized I wouldn’t be buying fuse. Could this game be any more generic? It makes me sad. I used to revere Insomniac but after a couple mediocre Ratchet & Clank sequels in a row and now this, I’m not so sure anymore.
The curse of the 3rd console. It seems as if console makers who have 2 successful consoles get really cocky.
Sega Dreamcast…PS4….N64….and now……
“The future of the Indie Games platform is also in limbo”
I see what you did there.
