Picked up the game earlier today, but I'm a total scrub when it comes to 3D fighters. I have always liked DOA more then Tekken or Virtua Fighter or whatever other fighters that exist, so I thought I would try and get into this. I had picked up vanilla version way back, but didn't end up playing it much. Also @demoskinos digging the Katsuragi.

The only card game that I've ever really liked and have ever gotten into was Yu-Gi-Oh. Rules are super easy to understand, but mastering the game is very hard. It helped that it had a show that you could watch as a kid that really taught you the basics of the game.

That's saddening. RIP.

@grantheaslip: I have no real desire to get into this debate again, so I thought I would just pop in and say, yes, I do believe that FFXIII is one of my favorite Final Fantasy games. I love the characters, the story and the battle sequences. It was a fantastic mix of feeling turn based yet also feeling like things needed to be done with a sense of urgency. It also looked straight out of Advent Children with Lightning jumping around and doing her ultimate screen filling attacks. The entire XIII trilogy has been a treat, and it's quite impressive that they were able to make three complete games before XV (which has been in development since before the PS3 even launched) is still not out.

On a side note, what happened to Hailinel? Was he banned?

Oh, no intention to rope you into anything -- I just figured I should link names I mentioned!

Ah, no worries, I actually appreciate the fact that my defense of this game got noticed by somebody.

Someone is a little upset that the game they like hasn't got good reviews, aren't they?

Aww, poor baby.

Your condescending attitude quite literally added nothing to this conversation.

I'm actually surprised at how much actual shooting and traversal game play The Order has. I was tempering my expectations and thinking that it would be more along the lines of something like Beyond Two Souls, and it actually is, but with a healthy dose of Uncharted thrown in there. The only argument I can see that can be made against what the OP is saying is the cost of the product, with Gone Home being a $20 product and The Order being $60. Although I think the increase in graphical fidelity is a good counter argument, as we are seeing one of the first games to truly look next generation.

Evil Within already had a lot of backlash against it because of the bars, and The Order is getting the same treatment.

Evil Within's framing was wonky and seemed to be added in the last second in order to alleviate performance issues. The Order's framing is much more well thought out and integral to the visual design process from an early stage, with vistas and landscapes that look and feel truly wide and panoramic, ala a 2:35:1 aspect ratio movie.

Probably no one. I don't think anyone would finish in time for the review to still be relevant in their eyes.

It's just console wars nonsense. Most people have yet to even play it, and even if they did they would still hate on it. The coming of the new generation of consoles also brought with it a new generation of teenagers who could only afford one console, and in order to validate themselves they go about bashing anything from the other camp.
