Im really curious as to whether or not Konami had mercury steam change dat ending…Hopefully this DLC will resolve some of my bitterness.
Are they actively trying to kill openGL or just supporting and improving their own API?
Maybe it accidentally got exported as progressive and its not “kicking” in and downloading the next res.
There should be a commercial break every 30 seconds to simulate loading after deaths.
Good thing I gave myself an out in the first sentence! 😃
That old dude was the legendary cleese from Monty python.
I for one am still glad mercury steam made an effort to bring a daring, cross platform trilogy with a beloved franchise.
I think its hard to check expectations for this game. It seems most of the poor reviews were mostly let down by the best ending of any 2010 games conclusion.
I’m just happy to get a couple rounds in as Dracula instead of going through the motions like every other metroidvania game out there.
If you liked the demo you might enjoy this game. What if all the things that bothered Phil are just minor annoyances to you?
I’m in the same boat as you. I might be wrong but before pkollars game informer days he was a hardcore RPG guy. Not that you can’t like multiple genres, but there is a tendency with knowledge and familiarity to get past a games shortcomings when you have a complete understanding of a genre.
I take a reviewers history into account when I read them because its only natural to lean one way or another, especially in an industry where being a fan of games is essentially a prerequisite for the job.
I’ll be playing this regardless since a lot of my favorite games are reviewed poorly and vice versa.
Now that I think of it, I disagree with Phil on almost every review!
I loved the demo.
Part of what got me so entranced in the first game was the music and the story. In this sequel I’m excited for that plus the combat and bosses. I HAVE ALL EXCITE
update – I am extremely interested in seeing this hi-potion be used now.
This is a really neat experiment. However, I just watched 3 guys take 30 minutes to select a potion…
My younger brother is new to pc gaming and tried out his after glow controller for it and loved it. We played multiple matches and he was never behind because of controls.
I remember hushing my parents when that ad came on! I used to study the pictures in the magazine and kept thinking about how it just couldn’t get any more lifelike than DK’s jungle ;)
I have had this crash every 4 or so matches since launch.
