While everyone is talking about Rise of the Tomb Raider timed exclusivity, nobody seems to be talking about Hellblade. And that's wrong.
I actually agree, Heavenly Sword was a much better game at it's time than the Tomb Raider reboot and I hope Hellblade can capture that magic again. But I also didn't finish Tomb Raider, I got bored by the story and characters early on.
Then of course you'd say Heavenly Sword is the better game if you didn't even manage to complete Tomb Raider :/ both games are good and also both games are very different. One is a hack and slash and the other is a third person adventure game. Personally I look forward to both HellBlade and Rise of the Tomb Raider.
what are you smoking...
Haha... this is pretty funny. This was the same site saying earlier in the week that having TR as a timed exclusive didn't matter. Now suddenly we get "well I prefer this timed exclusive". Its like reading a journal from a 10yr old.
Double standard ┻━┻ ︵ ლ(⌒-⌒ლ)
At its finest.
CLICKBAIT.... That's all this site does. Nothing more or less.
who care about the opinion of a random guy on the internet. I hope we will be able to filter all these crappy "opinion" article...
It will never happen. It's the bulk of this site. The random opinion pieces get the most hits and responses.
I don't think sony payed for this though. I think it was strictly a development choice.
+ we have seen no gameplay whatsoever and just a couple of months ago Ninja Theory were "terrible devs". Just depends on which piece of the cake you get. There are only 12 people working on this game so they have to focus on one console at a time. They chose the ps4. Move on (not you). Nothing to gloat or get upset about.
It's his opinion, and it sucks!
At the end of the day players on PS4 and Xbox One will get to play both of these games eventually. I'd laugh if HellBlade on Xbox One launched on the same day as Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4 xD
That would be over 9000 and melt N4G down.
Hilarity would definitely ensue. Now I want it to happen xD
All I know is that I'll be able to play both on their release day if I choose to do so.
no sorry there's no way HellBlade can make up for rise of the tomb raider
No you're right. The mass of PS4 exclusives in 2015 will more than make up for it, as well as the other PS4 timed-exclusives like HellBlade.
No one is talking about timed exclusivity. They're talking about multiplatform sequels as one platform exclusives, only it turns out that they're timed. If this gamer were to be exclusive, it wouldn't be as big a deal because its the first in a possible series. It doesn't have a following on other platforms because its just been announced. And hell, even then someone said, "Hey timed exclusive. Out first on this console though." There was no, "Hey, like this sequel? Played the first game on a system of your choice? "Well too bad - you want to play this then you'll have to buy out console. because this game will be on it forever! "(Though, now that you've complained about it, not really. We were just trying to fool you.)"
ok, now it's getting pathetic. Are people really that hurt that M$ got tomb raider first?
I was when I first heard the news because I thought it was a true exclusive. However once it was clarified as timed I couldn't care less.
No. Again, people are pissed that it was announced and defended as being fully and wholly exclusive, only it turns out that its not. That hey were mislead if not outright lied to.
I guess people forgot Ninja Theory is the Dev u know the ones who running DMC with it terrible clunky and slow animation. I need 2 see some gameplay first before I get hype for this game.
clunky and slow animation? I thought the animations were pretty good. I really liked that game. The only thing I didn't like about it was the somewhat dull story but other than that it was pretty good imo.
I love Ninja Theory... they have amazing artists
people are still talking about this? its a timed exclusive, so what. uncharted 4 will release around the same time, it will be a much better game. then a few months down the road it will be available. smart on crystal dynamics part if you ask me. if it released near uncharted 4, its sales would be big time poached by drake. they got a load of cash and can release it when it doesnt have to compete with a superior product.
Dont see how a game being a timed exclusive helps it. I rather have a game come out the same time on each console or exclusively for one for ever.
I agree completely. Timed exclusivity doesnt really mean anything. The game is still being made for other platforms so its not taking advantage of the hardware. Either full exclusive or just have it be multi-platform on release. The only thing I can say is that if focusing on one platform first makes for a better game then ok. If you dont have the resources to go multi-platform at release then I understand.
Hahaha, okay! Lol
Okay this is getting old.
Hellblade is also a timed exclusive........ Edit: lol my bad, I thought the article said "I'd rather have Hellblade THAN a timed exclusive"
if you read the article, it doesnt really care about timed exclusivity at all. just asks why people talk about tr and not heavenly sword2(not hellblade)
Who cares, there plenty of other games to play, don't know what the big deal is, its Tomb Raider. Now if MicroSoft got the time exclusive for a game like MGS V: The Phantom Pain. Now, that would be something to make a big deal about. It took until almost the end of the last generation cycle for Tomb Raider to be relevant again. Before that, the tomb raider franchise has not been great since Tomb Raider 2, IMHO. Now all these sites are talking about the Tomb Raider exclusive for MicroSoft. I can think of 20 games off the top that is coming out that is going to be better. Next year when we all be playing Witcher 3, the new Batman, Blood Borne, MGS V,Uncharted 4, new maps For COD AW, etc, and even Hellblade. You not going be thinking about no Tomb Raider.
add up all the sales that ninja theory has done last gen and then compare it to tomb raider reboot. im not even going to say what big impact the name tr makes. now you are questioning why more people seem to talk about tr then hellblade? its obvious. i would also like to say that ninja theory is going with the no publisher route this time meaning sony are not involved hence there was no heavenly sword2. ninja theory are great, i like them. but the way they talk to press needs to be improved. they speaking like proper brits and are too blunt and honest, they need to be more american and say what fans want to hear.
