    Having played two campaigns of this now I'm fairly torn on this expansion. There is some good stuff in there, like the new buildings and units etc, but a lot of the new features miss the mark pretty ...

    @alternate said:alternate Online • The curse of Spring. Antham, Crackdown, Far Cry, Metro - not a certified hit among them.There's a bagillion more coming so hopefully something will strike gold.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Hollow Knight Sequel. I repeat: HOLLOW KNIGHT SEQUEL. on the Hollow Knight: Silksong board

    I just really hope the game doesn't suffer from pandering to the active player base. Hollow Knight was already pretty close to the edge of being impenetrable, and they just kept ramping up with the D...

    @brunothethird: I haven't really played Subnautica so I'm not the best judge, but no, that doesn't quite sound like what I'm talking about. That might be in there though, as there are things I'm still...

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post Astroneer.

    Having put a good handful of hours into this now this game is not at all what I expected. Pretty much anyone who plays it will have this point of "oh, I just wasted 5 hours doing something that's supp...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Am I the only one with New Console Anxiety?. on the General Discussion board

    Most of my issue this time around is that I don't have any problems with my PS4. Is it some powerhouse that runs every game with spectacular graphics and impeccable performance ? No, but it's fine. I'...

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post Apex Legends (It's Actually Finished).

    A lot of this game speaks to me, unfortunately it's squad based and BR. If this was a singleplayer campaign driven thing I'd be all over it. Guess I should just go play Titanfall 2 instead though.

    @therealturk: I had no issues at all on PS4.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Demo Impressions. on the Anthem board

    Gave the open demo a try. I'm perplexed by the perspective change between Tarsis and expeditions. I get what they were going for, but all it ends up doing is emphasize the shortcomings of their cutsc...

    Hmm, are these games basically just Final Fantasy but Disney ?

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post Anthem (01/24/2019).

    All the footage I've seen of this game is multiplayer. This is gonna be another one of those games that "support" singleplayer, but really sucks if you don't have a group to play with, isn't it ?

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Thoughts on MK11 Event. on the Mortal Kombat 11 board

    My thoughts on the event; I really hope this isn't a future trend. We've seen a handful of games having these kinda events now, and I'm not a big fan of having to sit through 20 minutes of "thick" ma...

    @neocalypso: It's not.The game itself has many issues, but the big one is that it has no major appeal. If you listen to the people who are enjoying it the most common reply would be "it's so complicat...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic How come the cost of purchasing video games hasn't risen with the increase of development and inflation?. on the General Discussion board

    Because video games have always been overpriced. If you look at how immensely successful f2p and steam sales have been it's fairly obvious that while it's possible to sell games at $60 and make a pro...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Are fighting games a niche genre?. on the General Discussion board

    In an age where we see thousands of new games every year if a genre only has two franchises, and basically no stand-alone games, that has mainstream appeal I would call it niche. Comparatively it's ju...

    I'm having a hard time seeing how this is about F2P games and not just a rant about commercialism. Like, there's nothing in the OP that's unique or specific to F2P games. My first impression is that ...
