I just wonder how long a game like this needs to sustain. It could be a success while also being something people kinda move on from after a few months. Unless the long tail in this game is similar to Team Fortress, making all its money from digital hats or whatever, cosmetic DLC

Encounters didnt have a ton of variety but DA2 is the best the series has ever played. Its easy to pile on that game because of literally every other choice they made in that game, from only your last choice mattering to not being able to stop anything of significance to the single cave that got used for half the dungeons. But the combat was pretty alright, relative to the first game which didn't have any enemy variety at all and the 3rd game that took away your AI control.

You don't have AI tactics so they basically play themselves. Its worse.

@geraltitude: In the interest of gender equality I think she'd make the cut over, say, a brand new girl. Or like Frost or something embarrassing from right before the reboot.

I should have loved 13-2 based on the quick bullet points describing the game. But how you solved paradoxes was weird and arbitrary, and the pokemon stuff felt weird and arbitrary in a similar way. So there's all these weirdly executed ideas I shoulda been into more than I was. My main issue was you werent going through time fixing time problems, a weird random thing was happening in a time and you had to do some seemingly unrelated weird thing to undo the first thing. A bunch of nonsense. And Caius is like a joke from top to bottom. And since they were throwing ideas into a stewpot it seemed weird to me they didn't do a FF6/Suikoden 3 style thing where you could shift between perspectives and play through whatever Lightning was doing in conjunction with Serah. I liked the weird early endings. They should have leaned more into the crazy stuff like that.

Wind Waker bundle comes with a pretty sweet looking controller so that's the ideal way to go. But the MK8 bundle is going to be much easier to find at the moment.

"Upscaling" isn't a one button effort. People watch Dolphin videos and think its so simple. Do you understand in order to run Galaxy smooth on Dolphin upscaled you need a pretty fucking good rig? People half versed in technology acting like this is some easy thing to do. If all Nintendo did was upscale it with zero optimization, you're playing a game with single digit FPS. Like, do a modicum of research before mouthing off, honestly.

I didnt know it was a requirement to update every classic game that shows up in a digital store.

@jesus_phish: You seem to be making a lot of negative assumptions based on blanket statements, to suggest Hollywood hasnt made a good big budget film in years. Many people would disagree with you. There's no reason on the heels of Marvel film successes to presume all of the stuff you love in GiTS wouldn't make it into a live action GiTS movie. Its a GiTS movie because they want to use all that interesting stuff that resonates with people. Your ideas of Hollywood sound like what people were saying in the 90s. Its just not the case anymore.
