The bigger thing is MS wants you to subscribe to Game Pass so most (if not all) new MS games will be available through that including any new Obsidian games. So I think most people would prefer to subscribe for a month for $10 instead of buying the game outright.
Do I have to bring up Chris Benoit and the shit he did that was partially caused by PEDs? Let alone all the poor kids whose only chance to get out of that life is a college sport scholarship? (which is a huge fucking problem in the USA) PEDs will ruin you in so many ways and I understand why some feel like they have to use them but they can not be allowed for the safety of all athletes from youth to professional.
I'm not sure if the price point is the problem either way, the game was in development for so long that there was enough time for a wave of games like it to happen and disappear. It sounded like a novel idea in like ... 2008 or whenever this was originally announced .. I'm not sure people find that concept so intriguing anymore.
Wasn't there even an indy game they played that was this idea like, years and years ago?
There probably was something prior to Spy Party's original announcement too, but there at least way an OUYA launch game and multiple XBLA titles around 2013-2014 that did this.
SpyParty has been in playable beta since 2011. While some games with this idea has probably come out since SpyParty was shown years ago SpyParty almost certainly predates them.
I fell out of love for games or maybe games fell out of love with me. But my love was fixed by DR MACK! I contacted him and 3 days later me and games were back in passionate love! DR MACK made me love games again!
@frostyryan: having played Yakuza way back when it was released on the PS2 and last year playing Zero then Kiwami when they were released play Zero first. Zero will give you a deeper emotional connection with characters that are in both which if you don’t have that connection yourself the relationships can fall flat in Kiwami and as a result a less satisfying story.
As far as how important the story is for the Yakuza series, for me, it is the primary reason to play the games.
