Not sure why this thread was brought back but, since it's here and because it's one of my favorite Quick Looks, I'll nominate Mar: War Logs. Jeff describes the voice acting as "an atrocity" and I think he's being kind. Truly craptacular voice acting of some indescribably awful writing. If you haven't seen it and you ever need a good laugh, go watch that Quick Look.
- it included the Pro controller at that price. - the launch titles (or even the entire 2017 lineup) was so amazing I couldn't imagine waiting 2-3 years. - I had even the tiniest interest in the mobile aspect of the damn thing. - it was clear Nintendo was stepping away from the whole gimmicky Wii/Wii U motion control bullshit instead of everything about this feeling like the XBox One launching with a Kinect.
I think Zelda looks amazing - it's the most excited I've been for anything Nintendo since the SNES days - but I'm once again forced to wonder if maybe Nintendo just isn't for me anymore.
I'm somewhere between thinking I'll get it at some point and passing on it altogether. I'm still jazzed for Zelda but, man, the rest of the launch/upcoming titles leave me somewhat underwhelmed. So it's really hard to justify spending around $450 to play one game.
As someone who doesn't give a damn about mobile gaming, the $300 price tag and underwhelming launch lineup leaves me cold. I really wanted to be excited for this... Shit. Well, maybe in a couple years. Here's hoping I see you Black Friday 2018, Nintendo.
I bought my PS3 almost entirely for Demon's Souls. Despite knowing the XBox 360 was the preferred console (after Microsoft finally sorted out that whole RRoD issue), despite being a Halo fan (even after that shitty Halo 2 ending), despite the 360 being cheaper...yeah, I went with the PS3 because of Demon's Souls. Sure, there were some other exclusives that were apparently good, but everything about Demon's Souls hooked me. Hard.
So...it's not franchises that will make me buy a console, but the promise of something new and exciting. Except when it's VR. Nothing about the VR experience appeals to me.
I'm getting a Singularity/Syndicate vibe in that it has some interesting/potentially cool ideas that should make it a solid B-tier game worth buying when it hits the bargain bin but it will ultimately fail to be special because it's saddled by gameplay and atmosphere that's already been done bigger and better by other games.
