I just don't get it. Maybe i'm weird because I voluntarily spent 116 hours in Odyssey doing everything and enjoying every minute. I didn't have to rush through it to get a review done though.
Did you spend 60 hours just a year ago doing the same things in Origins? Alex liked Origins but Odyssey is a rehash with similar structure just a year later with content stretched out even more.
Rockstar hadn’t released a new game in 5 years and the last Red Dead was 8 years ago. Lots has changed and the quality and detail are unique from other games. If they put out the next RDR next year with just a different story but not innovating on the systems or mission structure, you’d have a point.
@aistan: AC level-gates the main story while it sounds like RDR2 gives you the choice of how much side content you want to do. Pretty much impossible to finish AC story without doing lots of similar side quests or item hunts just to get to the required level. Rockstar games give you a lot more freedom and variety of side content and it doesn’t seem like a grind.
Has GB thought about getting a capture mod for the switch? Would that satisfy the embargo requirements :D
It’d be handy for showing games that require handheld mode or touch screen at least.
So, has anyone figured out what sites/stores these are being sold or preordered?
I admire Abby’s dedication vlogging with a full size camera and massive lens. My arm would get tired after a minute.
Super frustrating watching Dan trying to play brute force without the items he needs (mine detector) and making zero effort to avoid alerts by just looking at the radar.
400 lbs isn’t that heavy, it’s 2 dudes. Maybe it was 400 kg?
@mikemcn: Wealthy people have more money than time. Some of them still enjoy playing games. Michael Pachter has admitted to spending lots of money on Candy Crush (or maybe it was some other mobile game).
That’s fine, the problem is when games are designed in ways where they end up being not fun unless you spend money. That’s why no one has issues with loot crates when the contents are all cosmetic (like PUBG).
Maybe Abby doesn't care? Maybe she had nothing to add on the lootbox discussion? What's up with people and the constant conspiracy theory nonsense?
No one has any conspiracy theories. What's with you bringing that up?
It's perfectly normal for human beings to not want to criticize people they have relationships with. Journalists/critics (I realize GB is more of a personality-driven site, but it still applies somewhat) have a tough task to separate relationships from their job.
Their job is to have an opinion on games. Just like it's their job to play games that they otherwise don't want to or wouldn't have played for the purpose of participating in GOTY discussions.
