    The roll-out here has been a complete disaster. Both consoles were basically pre-ordered beyond capacity before there was any dates or prices announced and several stores has had to redact on promise...

    @sethmode: Did you complete the full series ? I just finished the first round, but got a follow-up for a second round later. Dunno if the ultimate end is any good though.

    @bladeofcreation: you want to dual-wield the same weapon type in both hands, that unlocks special dual-wielding attacks. If you do two different types you basically just get the toolbox of two differe...

    @humanity: One of my biggest disappointments as I've gotten deeper into the game has definitely been the cities. While there are some absolutely stunning vistas in the game, with the wide open nature ...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Best AC game yet!. on the Assassin's Creed Valhalla board

    @bladeofcreation: I actually really enjoy what they've done with the skill tree. The thing is, if you're actually gonna do a skill tree (and not just unlock abilities as the game progresses) then doin...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Best AC game yet!. on the Assassin's Creed Valhalla board

    Having put some more time into it I think I can nail down the things that make this game feel "off" to me. First off, the overhaul to combat with stamina and health pick-ups is VERY not-AC. Not sayin...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Best AC game yet!. on the Assassin's Creed Valhalla board

    Haven't been able to put too much time into it yet, but so far this is the first of the "new" AC games that no longer feels like it's an AC game to me at all. So I guess it makes sense that some peop...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Do you think this game will feel like a Souls game?. on the Demon's Souls board

    I mean, it's Demon's Souls, it's already fairly "swishy" and "loose" compared to the later titles. It's easy to think of these games as all being the same, but the gameplay did actually develop quite...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic September/October game impression roundup. on the General Discussion board

    Just recently picked up CSD3 as well. From what I've played of it so far this is the actual sequel the first game needed. It's grown in smart ways which leads to a more engaging gameplay, with stuff ...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Monster Hunter - Exclusive Official Trailer (2020) Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa. on the General Discussion board

    @humanity: I dunno. The biggest movies/franchises over the last 20 years are like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Marvel Universe, Pirates of the Caribbean and Star Wars. Thinking people need a real ...

    Why... I don't see any reason why they couldn't just make a movie in the MH universe.. Why include a real-world element and a stupid dimensional portal and a "we gotta get home" plot ?

    I'm sorta out of the loop here. He quit GB to go full-time streamer ? Or did he have a gig in-between or something ?

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic What do you guys think about New World?. on the New World board

    I played the preview event for 2 days. There are things about the game that makes me very very interested in playing it, but the execution so far is quite subpar. And I don't think just one more year...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic They're Giving Us the Broken Archstone?. on the Demon's Souls board

    There was something about the audio that put me off the demo they showed in the stream. After doing some comparisons it seems like the remaster has severely toned down all striking sounds. Even the b...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic What Will Sony's Response Be?. on the PlayStation 5 board

    @fourthline: Digital sales are a thing to increase market potential, and that's not gonna change. Basically you start selling your game at $60, once it's sold about as much as it can at that price you...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic What Will Sony's Response Be?. on the PlayStation 5 board

    @johnlocke: I think it's more of an incentive the other way around. Basically "if you didn't buy a PS4 here's a bunch of the best games that you missed out on, so you'll buy a PS5 and start subscribin...

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post Rogue Legacy 2 (08/26/20).

    Was Rogue Legacy really known for its platforming ? Been a while since I played it, but from what I remember it was more of a light action-RPG about becoming stronger over time and beating harder and...

    Can't just be me that find that combat music to be incredibly out of place ? (1:50 and 3:55 in the second video for reference)

    Deus Ex. All FPSs up to that point were just shooters. Quake, Doom, CS, Half-life, they were all just games about moving on to the next enemy to shoot. You had a few games playing around with new ide...
