The Fabulous J
And people have every right to criticize it.
People are expressing a disappointment that they won’t have a character they’d like for a game that they were interested in. Now instead of fulfilling a dream, Deep Down just lets down.
They are not getting hate. They are getting disappointment. Disappointment from people who were interested in a property that might challenge and push game development forward. Disappointment from people who lost the chance that maybe, just maybe, there’d be a character for them.
Disappointment from people who thought the next generation might actually have given us something new.
Is it just me or are Ben’s opinion pieces always obvious from the title? You can tell if it’s going to be Ben’s (usually some lightning rod title), or someone else’s. He doesn’t put out bad work per se, but I don’t find them interesting to read unfortunately. If this piece were written more directly from a developer or better still, someone at Microsoft then my attention would be capture thereafter. Sadly, Ben’s are just commentary pieces that typically lack the grounding of being involved in the production business that catch me as a reader.
This story better be the end all of all stories because I can’t even fathom how you justify that.
Signed up in the first hour of sign ups, but I haven’t gotten anything yet on my Origin client.
I probably won’t buy it if I don’t get beta access which sounds horrendously entitled, but that seems to be the only way to try out a “demo” of the game. Without that, I’m not comfortable buying it without knowing the quality for myself.
No sense wasting a perfectly good character design.
Liking the new, bold “OPINION” printed at the header. It’d help for all the categories, NEWS/REPORT/CULTURE.
Ben’s opinion supports the idea that Respawn continues to look at this as the MOBA in FPS form. The K/D ratio won’t matter as much as your W/L or the player K/D. Eager to try the beta, even if it means Origin.
Burn the witch!
