Maybe I’m in the minority, but even if I can’t play this game very often (because of not being able to coordinate or schedule matches with my friends), I can’t and won’t hesitate to buy it because I loved it enough when I initially played it on the Ouya that supporting the developers is a no-brainer for me.
That would have been great. Since the game is about “hacking systems” and all that stuff, it would have been cool to have the main story revealed through your own initiative instead of having it spelled out for you like a typical trope. For example, it’d be more or less up to you to determine how much of the story you want/can reveal, and the game could even potentially end without having discovered the truth/all of the facts/details. Oh well.
I had read on r/PS4 about how this was a broken game, which is disappointing to see that confirmed here since I was sort of interested in playing it at one point. Maybe down the line, once I hear about a patch or update addressing the issues found in this game, I’ll consider checking it out again.
I feel bad for Wii U owners and for Nintendo in general. In no specific terms, developers are more or less saying that the Wii U isn’t worth the time and effort it takes to create games for. Not wanting to spend the money it’d take to make/port games to the Wii U is becoming the “elephant in the room”, so to speak, within the industry and no one seems to want to admit it by saying, “There is no profit to be made to justify spending the resources required to put out a game on a Nintendo console.” It’s a major bummer.
I’m definitely buying this game when it comes out, but seeing that trailer sort of lessens my initial excitement I had for the game. Now that the story has been revealed, it wades into that “I have to get revenge for something that was taken from me, etc.” story and that’s not nearly as interesting as the ambiguity offered in the first few trailers and gameplay videos. Hopefully the story isn’t as generic as it looks/sounds because gameplay-wise it looks fantastic.
Good call; I didn’t even think about that. Definitely crossing my fingers then.
Incredibly excited about this. Is there any reason to be optimistic for a 2014 release date?
Incredibly excited for TowerFall, but as much as I’m looking forward to buying it and in turn supporting the developers, I’m going to be super bummed if and when I discover you can’t play against bots. Hopefully online multiplayer becomes a thing in the near future.
This is one of the first multiplayer game I could see myself getting into in terms of competitive play. I played the beta the other day and I couldn’t remember the last time I had that much fun playing a game with other people. Maybe not since Halo 3 or Reach?
The setting, even after seeing clips of gameplay and screenshots, still doesn’t look all that interesting. Obviously personal preference, but a combination of a “League of Extraordinary Gentleman” type setting with Victorian and steam punk elements just seems very…bland to me (a similar complaint I had about Dishonored). I really hope I’m wrong, because it’s exciting in general that an IP with this much hype around it is coming to the PS4, but for now I’m skeptical.
