It is definitely in the top 5 RPGs of last generation, along with Lost Odyssey, FFXIII, Resonance of Fate, and Nier. Lost Odyssey is the best IMO, and the others ones are in an ever changing number 2-5.
@oscar__explosion: But Lost Odyssey DID have an actual overworld and several different vehicles to traverse the world in... did you play until you get the boat and then the airship?
@zombie2011: How about you wait before exclaiming your amazement. Lots of people have tried this kind of thing before. It could turn out like the kinect, neat for demos but in the real world, a bit more flaky.
I'm excited for the development! I work in R&D so i know the costs this stuff can have on the company. Developing this stuff is what pushes us to bigger and better, if it doesn't work they will at least understand why and can iterate on it. So i'll be excited for this as much as i want. Its that they are trying new things is what is important, they could have just copied Oculus like Sony and said fuck it to innovation but they didn't and that's worth celebrating.
They did a live demo of it on stage. 95% of it looked like stuff they could only be doing on stage, but obviously the 3D printing would have to be done earlier because that shit takes time. Hololens looks like something that's actually innovative and different from the competition and I'm so fucking excied to see where it goes. That live demo kind of proved that even if they succeed with a fraction fo what they're saying it can do, it'll be a badass piece of equipment. It's being co developed with NASA for fuck sakes.
I have a few clips saved from Sunset Overdrive and I'm wondering if it's at all possible to see who exactly it was that viewed each clip? There's a little eye icon with the number of people who've watched it, but I can't figure out if it's just a number that gets added to your total clip views or if I can actually see who they were.
Kotaku is a great fit for Patrick - not because of what it is, but what he CAN change it into. It is doubtless a very shitty place, but if Patrick keeps up what he's doing he could change the minds of gamers on Kotaku.
I used to think the same as you and then I actually started caring about my equipment and noticed that I don't die like crazy anymore and my attacks actually do damage. Also, upgrading things is good, and you're gonna want to get some more skills with those points you earn. The combat is definitely the hardest in the series and sometimes the whole dodge to evade a gunshot thing doesn't work but other than that I think it's quite a better combat system than other games. The others were just way too easy and overpowered.
I've been having trouble connecting to Uplay for quite some time now. When I go into the Initiates option from the start menu of Unity it just says that the servers are down, but it seems to have been down for quite some time. I tried doing this last week as well with no luck. I remember it was working fine when I first got the game though. I am trying to play the companion app to get some more stuff to do in the main game but I can't connect if Uplay isn't up. Is anyone else having trouble with Uplay?
