For me the comparison should be early 360/ps3 to early ps4/xboxone. If you look at it like that the graphical jump it is kind of ridiculous. Seeing a bit of game development this gen, the biggest change is that since the old generation went on far too long, everyone got too used to cadence and iteration they had before. Say if a game cost X amount to make during end of 360/ps3 era it probably cost 2X-3X more now because of all the additional cost you have for art assets (for examples charecter models have so much more detail in most games now, its just one of those things that you don't really notice unless you can zoom in and see the skin features cause most games are played from a perspective that is pretty zoomed out) and the lack of best practices and optimization that game developer created over a 8 year console cycle. Hence why we got all the delays last few years, it's freaking rough making AAA games now days.

Games will start looking crazy good sooner than later, but because of various reason listed (most of which have already been mentioned) it will take longer than last gen did. Plus the biggest jump for me is in the console\ infrastructure and its online capabilities that can be hugely expanded with software, where last gen those infrastructures were not in place and were kind of forced in via software.

@funkydupe: soooo if at some point (pre or post launch) they announce that PC version will have 100 player count, and in reality they have to make sure they can deliver 40 on console and quite can't promise 100 on PC yet because of game development being super hard with this short of time frame on new gen consoles (and announcing 100 and not being able to deliver would be worse PR they could ever ask for) and possible co marketing deals pushing console SKU and the fact that this is freaking a star wars game coming out around the new movie and its gonna sell like mad on consoles cause only a fraction of the population have the kind of PC that could run 100 player server) ...... would you be happy?

Just saying there is more to this than: hey! lets fuck with the fan base and deliver a subpar game cause fuck everybody. This game has to come out during the new movie, its the nature of the business and the fact you got two giant publicly traded company to deal with here.

I thought it was pretty good :/ very close to DS1 for me and DS2 a close third.

I do feel like lack of respec really makes some builds boring, I maxed out strength first and by the end I was only doing the Kirkhammer charge attack over and over and over again since it was one hit kill on most enemies and just wrecked bosses. I blasted through the game, but I really enjoyed the sense of unkown it gave me and I think it played the best out of the other souls games. I was pretty burned out by it by the end, gave it a few weeks and made a skill/blodotinge charecter (complete opposite of what I was playing) and did way more challice dungeon. Now I am really enjoying it with fast weapons and a right build for them.

Bloodborne has problems, probably needs 3-5 more weapons, but overall I really enjoyed it; it was a huge upgrade on how it played and run from DS1&2 for me. I tried playing DS2 again, but couldn't get into it. Movement was just wack for me after bloodborne.

Pretty much the more Souls game turn into Ninja Gaiden, the more I like them..... so yeah bloodborne pretty good!

I don't want to argue with anyone here cause you are all freaking awesome, and you all make some good points. I just feel that the RAW after Mania is a special show, it is very obvious who the crowd wants and doesn't want going into the show. The most logical thing would be for WWE to use the crowd to create a show where the crowd boos and cheers what they want and at least for one night everyone can be align. The bad Diva crowd aside, I think everything till the main event worked perfectly. People who were suppose to get cheered got cheered and heels got booed, everyone on the show was made to look like a superstar thanks to the great crowd and atmosphere. Are the boos for Reigns kind of too much? probably. But the creative and Vince should know this, just keep the dude off tv the one week you know the fans will shit on him super hard, have him sell the beating he took the night before. And if you are going to use him on the show make sure you create a scenario that the people will be okay with watching him ala not against Big Show and Kane in the main event for the billionth time. I personally don't blame the fans for what happened during the main event, yah it kind of sucked and you guys make good points; but you should never have him in that position to begin with.

There was no need for Reigns to be on that show, it would have been a hundred times better for him to be off tv for one week and actually build some sympathy for him.

For example remember the RAW after WM29? Punk didn't show up, you know why? because he was gonna be the biggest babyface on the show and they did the right thing by keeping him off RAW and not ruining their show. It's not hard, really.

The chants during Diva chants were ridic and so uncalled for, but I'm sorry if you are building suspense to a mystery partner the whole night and it ends up being Reigns against Show and Kane...... The fans had every right to shit on that, yah reigns doesn't deserve it but Vince needs to learn to not put freaking Show and Kane against him EVERY SINGLE FREAKING WEEK

Kirkhammer is pretty beast, trying out the stakeriver seems to have potential but I got to upgrade it first. The axe is pretty good too, but I prefer the Kirkhammer sword since its fast, strong and can be used for longer combos. Besides the transformation combo and charge R2 for hammer mode, I am not finding the normal hammer combo that useful.

blunderbuss/flamethrower/torch for off hand. They are all good in different situations, flamethrower saved my ass for a certain boss that everyone seems to hate.

@zevvion: how is Ludwig's Holy Blade in relation to kirkhammer? Faster/stronger?

Also Bloodtinge stat only helps with gun damage / equipping them right? The stat doesn't actually increase the parrying window or anything like that right?

OMG please just have Lesnar destroy Reigns at WM now, just have him no sell the spear or snatch him mid air during a super man punch and F-5 out of the ring.

I don't even mind Reigns but Lesnar is a million times more entertaining than Reigns as Champion even if he never defends the title
