What's... Yoko gotta do with it?

So that portrait of Yoko is dead centre on the wall of the first room in the game. This was probably the first point at which I thought "The game must be trying to do something deliberately subversive" but it never really turned into anything. Checking the Steam forums later I discovered the lead dev saying that an artist placed it in the game to troll him. It comes off as really immersion-breaking. You can also find this right near it.

This is a shame. It looked like Driveclub could have been a really strong game, but I can totally see the shortcomings Jeff is pointing out here.

Tomodachi Life was a nightmare machine and I love it.

This looks like a fantastic character and as always adding a new character to the Sonic roster is an amazing idea that can in no way backfire.

I'm sad to hear they weren't as ambitious here as they could have been but I'm still excited for the game. Good review.

Being the guys who worked on Duke Nukem Forever for all that time 3D Realms are going to have to prove to people that they actually know how to make something of quality in the modern games industry and this video doesn't remotely convey that. I mean obviously there's no way to pass actual judgement on their game, but this character design, graphical quality, and generally poorly conceived trailer isn't exactly going to convince people that they have their shit together. You start to wonder why this thing exists if all they have to show is a few character models and explosion effects sat in an endless black sandbox.

@beard_of_zeus: Considering what it was I was actually surprised the game didn't have more technical issues. There was only one I can remember encountering a proper bug and it's even able to display cutscenes during load times without hitching. I don't want to end up just repeating what I've already said in the review here, but for me the thing that really brings the game through is that stylisation and when it's able to pull the action off right. It's actually a lot more ambitious than some AAA games in those areas.

@beard_of_zeus: I mean I only use the stars as a very vague guide anyway, I think trying to put a qualitative judgement into a quantitative score is always something that you can only do in the loosest of ways. I picked up Wet though because I went into a CeX. I hadn't been in one of those shops in over a year, but I remembered them being at least okay for second-hand games, films, electronics, etc. They had a bunch of cheap stuff and I managed to pick up Wet for £3, I'd say I got my money's worth. Also, just a heads-up, you really want to be putting end-game spoilers in spoiler tags, I took care of that when for you. But yeah, the way they handled that ending was abysmal, probably the worst part of the game.
