loooool ... you really don't thing that MS will drop its epic swords exclusive game for PC . i really don;t think so

BiggCMan1756d ago (Edited 1756d ago )

I was hearing at E3 that the game practically plays itself with all the QTE's that you cannot fail at all? I don't recall if that's 100% accurate, but if it is, I have zero interest in the game any more.

It looks good otherwise, nice graphics, nice gore etc.. And I don't mind QTE's at all, I do love Heavy Rain and God of War. But when you can't fail them, and the game practically moves on anyways, that ruins everything entirely.

I won't bother with this petition.

EDIT: Yea here it is, this just makes no sense to me.

JokesOnYou1756d ago (Edited 1756d ago )

BiggCMan, Where have you been theres been hands on which contrast Kotakus old impression of the game, they made the demo very easy to save time for the E3 presentation, which was more of an advertisement for the cinematics than the gameplay. Here is a vid about all the background work they were intending to showcase with the demo at E3.

"San Diego Comic Con 2013: Xbox One Hands-On Impressions"

"This Roman war mongering simulator looks incredible. The combat isn't all about doling out repeated Quick Time Events, which is something I was relieved to learn about. As it turns out, the QTE's are definitely optional. There's no penalty for skipping them entirely, either. I had a blast just cutting up hapless soldiers and just moving on to the next one without ending their lives with a brutal QTE. Each button pertains to a different piece of equipment (the sword, shield block and shield bash/kick counter)."

"When facing off with multiple enemies, the complexity of the game's battles become a bit more prevalent. It pays off to know exactly when to block, slash and counter all the enemies that surround you. Paying attention to character animations plays a large part in knowing how to approach certain battle situations. The QTE's aren't the focus of this historical beat 'em up. Thank God for that (or the developers themselves)."

@biggCMan mmmmmmmmmm IDK how to explain all the stuff in the game ill try a few though ...
1-these are finishers not QTE so you can skip them and kill enemies in old fashion boring way if you want to
2-there are more than 100 animation of finishers depends on how good you're in them and in what side of enemy you choose to finish and some will be unlocked when you're really good at them
3-the game is really brutal you can see legs sawed off
so yeah if you want to skip skip , but for me its one of the best next gen games
(look at the behind the scenes video in youtube to see what im talking about)

LordNikon1756d ago


Just so you know, crappy gameplay is far worser than crappy graphics. But Evolution did say, their graphics has been improving a lot lately. And Crytek did say their gameplay won't look as bad as it did at E3. So i believe both can turn out to be a lot better than what they looked like at E3.

shut up, you won't get this one on PC lol >:)

If every X1 exclusive comes to PC, then what's the point of having a X1 ?

Microsoft wants people to buy a X1.

We don't see Sony or Nintendo bringing their main exclusives to PC.

starchild1756d ago

Because as lots of console gamers make clear time and time again they don't want to game on PC. There is some overlap, but they are largely different markets.

3-4-51756d ago

On PC, with mods, this game could actually become pretty awesome.

Well is not a bad decision. In the minds of PS fanboys is a bad decision but in the mind of a gamer is great news for gamers. PC gamers and real gamers understand why.

starchild1756d ago

Among console focused gamers, it wouldn't really make a difference anyway. It wouldn't be playable on competing consoles.

It all depends on how well the games does on xbox-one. If it does well then don't expect a PC version anytime soon.

FrigidDARKNESS1756d ago

Waste of time with petitions. Only on xbox one is where gamers can play this game.

DragonKnight1756d ago

Don't be so sure. This is Crytek's game and they are first and foremost PC devs. The only way this game stays on Xbox One is if MS owns some kind of rights to it.

FrigidDARKNESS1756d ago

Its published by Microsoft.

elhebbo161756d ago

it wouldn't be mind blowing if it comes to PC in later years... Mass Effect WAS a 360 you know.

PFFT1756d ago

Yes yes it was BUT you can bet your ass MS were the ones to give the go ahead and let that game release on the other consoles. And not only that im pretty sure they got something for it.

JokesOnYou1756d ago (Edited 1756d ago )

Well DragonKnight that's called a legal loophole via a buyout, micro obviously agreed to for some undisclosed compensation, so unless you have some inside info that Crytek is about to be bought out by EA, your Mass Effect comparison means nothing. Microsoft is the publisher, Ryse is exclusive to X1. Ryse looks like its going to be a kickass game so I'm not surprised PC and sony fans are so interested in its status.

DragonKnight1756d ago

@JokesOnYou: I'm not interested in Ryse's status at all. To me it looks very casual, relies too heavily on QTE's and is riddled with Crytek's "looks over gameplay" style. I simply pointed out that Crytek is a primarily PC developer and it's not out of the realm of possibility that Ryse can go to the PC. EA buying out Bioware doesn't create a legal loophole that allows for past works to break any already established agreements. The law will only allow for that as of the writing of the contract and any future projects unless otherwise stated in the contract and agreed upon by involved parties.

It's also easily possible for MS to only have publishing rights and no IP rights. That means that as soon as the time limit, if one was established, in the publishing contract is up then Crytek can put their game wherever they want.

Don't be surprised if it shows up on the PC in the future.

@trafalger since I know you're so interested in what I'm saying and will show up: I don't care about the PC, but that doesn't mean I can't talk about it, so your links trying to discredit me because I talk about the PC are meaningless. Discussions aren't black and white situations.

JokesOnYou1756d ago (Edited 1756d ago )

lol, You just said the same thing I said:

"The law will only allow for that as of the writing of the contract and any future projects unless otherwise stated in the contract and agreed upon by involved parties."= legal loophole

-Yeah of course it was some type of vague writing or even puposely written language which in this case obviously it opened the door to ME being published on another console by a different publisher due to the buyout of Bioware. I mean its a fact that micro once owned the publishing rights. Do you actually think Micro would let it be published on ps3 for good will or because EA came in the picture? In fact since the game only came over after a while after the buyout and no other micro published game has gone to ps3 ITS CLEAR that the buyout was the driving factor or do you believe all the 3rd party exclusives like Gears of War aren't on ps3 because Epic doesn't like sony fans money?

-Saying well because of one game this COULD happen for every other exclusive is like saying Naught Dog could do one of those deals internally with sony and go independent but its very, very unlikely.

btw heres the link I forgot to include for the San Diego Comic Com hands on impression comments I quoted above:

DragonKnight1756d ago

@Jokes: Actually I wrote that out poorly. What I meant was this. EA could have bought Bioware, but that doesn't mean that they would be legally entitled to ownership of IPs that Bioware gave the rights to to another company BEFORE the buyout. Microsoft's rights would supersede EA's for Mass Effect 1. Only if Microsoft agreed to give up the rights to Mass Effect 1 in the original or a subsequent contract could EA then do whatever they wanted.

So when you say that Microsoft probably got something out of it, then yes I completely agree. However we don't know if MS owns the IP rights to Ryse or just the publishing rights. If MS own the IP rights to Ryse, then it will only go on PC if MS authorizes it. If just the publishing rights, then I'd be expecting Ryse on PC eventually.

Your Naughty Dog example is flawed due to the fact that Sony own Naughty Dog and all IPs they create, so the "legal loophole" you were discussing is impossible unless created by Sony.

JokesOnYou1756d ago (Edited 1756d ago )

OK, I think we are saying the same thing, for the most part but hey either way if Micro is the publisher like every other game they've published besides ME= EA buyout then its pretty much exclusive. As for my Naughty Dog example, I'm correct because members inside of a company can always "opt out" and form a new studio if they are unhappy with the parent company, notice I never said take their IP's go with them although that's possible through negotiations, but they definitely can just go independent, again that would mean ND was extremely unhappy under sony which I know is NOT true, just saying its possible for anything to happen in business because its always just about leverage/money and as great as ND is sony does not have the ability or desire to keep them from moving on if that's what they wanted to do.

DragonKnight1756d ago

Well yeah ND staff members could leave and form their own studio, doesn't mean the Xbox One will get Uncharted 1 through 3 though. It's not the same as Bioware being bought by EA and then EA working on MS to bring ME1 over to PS3.

NiteX1756d ago

I really don't see why anyone would want this game. If you're expecting much from it you will be disappointed. Of course this is just my opinion.

Spurg1756d ago

Well your opinion is meaningless because you haven't even played the game.

TRU3_GAM3R1756d ago (Edited 1756d ago )

Of course this is just my opinion"

well you said it all.....

CrimsonStar1756d ago

Can I borrow your crystal ball when you're done with it?

Seafort1756d ago

Can I sign a petition to NOT bring Ryse to PC?

I don't want another QTE type games. It was bad enough when they thought it was a good idea to add QTE to Tomb Raider and a few other games but I can't bare the thought of playing a game that has exclusively QTEs.

Belking1756d ago

"but I can't bare the thought of playing a game that has exclusively QTEs."

Then you better stay away from GOW and heavy

Skips1756d ago (Edited 1756d ago )

"exclusively QTEs."

"Then you better stay away from GOW"

You mean those QTE that only show up in boss fights??? LMFAO!!! XD

You're seriously reaching bud... Wouldn't even touch GOW if every SINGLE KILL ended with a QTE like Ryse...

Agree about Heavy Rain but in HR, it can actually change the story line...

Ryse's QTE's are just COMPLETELY unnecessary...

DigitalRaptor1756d ago (Edited 1756d ago )

Man, I wish I could understand how such fail is possible.

The guy is a PC gamer.

Anything that is an attack on Xbox or its games has to be somehow PlayStation related in your eyes. GOW and Heavy Rain are PlayStation games so what do they have to do with this guy or his comment? Fail.

JokesOnYou1756d ago (Edited 1756d ago )

DigitalRaptor, it isn't because its an attack on xbox, I disagree with him only because what he said doesn't make sense, for the following reasons.

#1 He mentioned "Tomb Raider and a few other games" and went on to say he "I can't bare the thought of playing a game that has exclusively QTEs.", which doesn't make sense because Tomb Raider is not exclusively QTE's, however I'm not sure what other pc games he's referring to are "exclusively QTE's"? Belking is correct about Heavy Rain, which is ALL QTE gameplay and its been highly regarded on this site. Ryse is nothing like HR.

#2 Clearly he doesn't know much about Ryse since its NOT "exclusively QTE's".

#3 PC has hundreds of games released each year, why as a PC gamer would he hope a game he doesn't care about come to the platform for those that do?

-It seems both you and Skips conveniently recognize when GOW QTE's occur but overlook that Ryse QTE's aren't really traditional QTE's at all, and more importantly you don't have to use them.

Spurg1756d ago

But the thing is they already said ages ago that those weren't QTE. The combat is similar to the arkham series and is the same button prompt appears when batman has to do a finishing move.

Its not a cinematic event where you have to press a few buttons to win the battles. Notice he had to slash a few times to prompt the a button for a finishing move. And to get a better more rewarding finishing moves you have to chain combos and parry. The combat isn't simple as people seem to think it is.

ohbaby1756d ago

Exactly, but people have Sonective memory jk hehe, on a serious note. The developers have stated the game is NOT QTE heavy, it was only that way for the E3 demo.

starchild1756d ago

I'm a PC gamer, but I disagree with you.

First of all, Tomb Raider was an amazing game. The few QTE in the game didn't take away from the experience at all.

Second of all, I don't even plan to buy an XB1, but it's disingenuous to say that Ryse is all QTEs when we can clearly see that it is not. Previews have also said as much.

Third, it doesn't hurt you to have a game simply be available on the PC. Even if you don't like the game, there may be PC gamers that do. The more games available on a platform the better. If you don't like a game, don't buy it. Simple as that.
