• tds418 posted a message in the forum topic I think the Dualsense might be ergonomically incompatible with my hands.. on the DualSense Controller board

    I've never liked DualSense controllers. It's a matter of personal preference, but I vastly prefer the alternating thumbsticks of the Xbox controller, rather than both sticks being next to each other. ...

  • tds418 posted a message in the forum topic Anthem NEXT officially cancelled by EA. on the Anthem board

    @bigsocrates Okay, I guess we don't disagree much then. I also don't want BioWare shut down (or at least, I want them to have another opportunity to try and make a great single-player RPG first).But, ...

  • tds418 posted a message in the forum topic Anthem NEXT officially cancelled by EA. on the Anthem board

    So...you are just assuming. Mass Effect 3 successfully implemented microtransactions, so BioWare had proven they didn't need to go the full GaaS-route to get microtransactions into a new IP. The quote...

  • tds418 posted a message in the forum topic Anthem NEXT officially cancelled by EA. on the Anthem board

    It's too easy to lay all the blame on EA. Sure, maybe EA wanted microtransactions in Anthem, but are microtransactions really the reason Anthem failed? It seems like its issues were more related to bu...

  • tds418 posted a message in the forum topic This or Forza Horizon 5? - Which installment you will be more interested in?. on the Forza Motorsport Forum board

    Horizon 4 was fantastic, but I really enjoy both series and FM has taken a long enough break that I'm very interested to see what they're cooking up for the reboot. But I'm sure I'll play both FM rebo...

    Looks like the deluxe edition is $79.99 on xbox, which is not a $50 premium.

    I skimmed through a lot of your post because I was trying to avoid spoilers, but I don't think there is necessarily anything wrong with tackling abuse in fictional narratives. It just has to be handle...

    Hell yeah! I loved the first TDU when it came out so I remember eagerly waiting for the sequel. The physics were certainly...unusual, but I found them bearable and even enjoyable after getting used to...

  • tds418 posted a message in the forum topic Sonic The Hedgehog: Looks like SEGA is gearing up for another soft-reboot. on the General Discussion board

    @igort: Yeah, I guess I don’t disagree. But I do think Sonic is a cultural figure like Mario or Pikachu whose presence in popular culture is largely independent from the new games coming out. And that...

    @bigsocrates said: It seems like Sonic might be more of a media property at this point than a game property. I think this is very true, and helps to explain the poor quality of many recent Sonic game...

    It's a bummer, but VV was a support studio for Destiny when that franchise was still under Activision, so they do have some history of being in that role.FWIW, VV did good work on Destiny and Bungie w...

    I agree wholeheartedly OP. As I posted in the reviews thread, I don't have pre-2016 hitman experience, but so far 3 is my favorite of this trilogy. The level design really is next level, and they use ...

    I took time off to play the new Destiny expansion (Beyond Light). I was fully prepared for there to be server issues though, so I wouldn't have been salty if that had been the case. It launched on the...

  • tds418 posted a message in the forum topic What is the best videogame story twist in the past decade. Spoilers. on the General Discussion board

    I don't think it's the best, because the execution is definitely messy, but Persona 5 deserves a shout-out for being a 60+ hour RPG with a narrative structured around a late-game twist.
