Ready at Dawn studio is ready to ship their latest game The Order: 1886 to the market soon but there is a lot of criticism around the web that is surfacing as the game is getting closer and closer to its release.
Thank you for the awesome reasons. Here is why i think it will be awesome. Heavy storytelling Superb Graphics Jason Graves epic ost Nikola Tesla Futuristic badass weapons Great Voice Acting Awesome Beards and Mustaches Beautiful Environment Visceral Gameplay Lycans or Halfbreeds that can talk which is totally cool Its a Single Player experience Will make people have more knowledge about Victorian London 1886 Varied looking environments
You forgot about changing gameplay and intense battle sequences
And Santa Monica | Ready at Dawn. About the OST : Please do NOT forget Austin Wintory, who is responsible for the masterpiece that is Journey's ost, and who also works on that game.
i dont understand what's wrong with so called gamers nowadays. Before people were queuing to buy Tetris in colors for NES and peopel had fun with all kinds of games. Hating and trolling became a standard right now, and i have no idea why people cannot just shut up and respect others. Everyone is allowed to have his console of choice but it doesn't mean that you should spit on other's at every single occasion it's tiring in the end. The Order is gonna kick ass because it looks phenomenal and the fightings seem very intense. But to me it's mostly the atmosphere and the new dimension of historical London that appeal most to me. Gamers should stand up and realize that reviews are the most subjective thing ever, and even if the reviewer is objective about it doesn't mean you have the same opinion. I for sure always go for the feeling and i have almost NEVER been disappointed on any of my choices and i could enjoy some amazing underrated games. Mustache for everyone! http://www.reactiongifs.com...
@abz. it's been like that forever, but deff more intense as of recent. it's because sony fans got a chance to hate on MS hardcore at the start of the gen and got to flaunt at the same time. this is the industry taking stabs at us now. but: We Didnt Start The Fire!! *sings* :P well said though. The Order is gonna Rock. i like the atmosphere as well, but really the guns and the way they shoot/sound. the ambiance.
I'm confused. Eurogamer and a ton of other websites have written articles slating The Order: 1886 without having played the full game. Are they trying to help gamers not buy a 'broken' game or are they trying to damage sales of a PlayStation 4 exclusive?
@abzdiine, Story is at the heart of any game for me. I can only enjoy for a short time those titles which rely solely on mechanics or gimics. Add to this my love of the source material and this particular game was "made to order" as it were. The days when gamers enjoyed great titles sheerly for the sake of gaming are currently under siege. It is a mentality on which cheap websites prey in order to garner hits and the more sheeplike readily fall prey to the beast. Some, particularly supporters of such trash writing would argue, "If you can print articles praising an upcoming game is it not equally just to print articles which then critique, attack, or point out a titles issues?" I would take the stand that it is not, or rather at least not under many circumstances. This is a hobby which I happen to enjoy and one in which I have invested a significant amount of money and time. It is a pastime in which I engage for enjoyment rather than a laboratory where I hope to invent a new genus of angst and disappointment. Many of the issues with major titles are quite real. Ubisoft has hopefully learned this gem of a fact by now. But sometimes, and more often as of late, these matters are invented, or at the very least unnecessarily amplified by imebciles as they fly under the banner of "controversy sells". It is quite one thing to question marketing strategy or DLC plans for a title but it is entirely a horse of a different color to simply attack titles with the blunt weapon of ignorant opinion. From game reviews to simple nonsense blathering such as that posted recently by vgamers.com I abhor and detest such detrimental articles that exist only to serve themselves. It is the modus operandi these days that most sites must inform the ignorant masses of their fool's belief in an upcoming game. They must illuminate us as we grovel in the dark. The fact that they can work such magic with no more information than we ourselves possess is the sort of thing that at one time would have stirred up a great deal of trouble in Salem. I can find almost no sites these days that simply celebrate gaming and inform the demographic. A site that says "Here is a coming game. This looks cool as hell. Here is what you can do. Check out this kick ass video". Quite frankly such a site that was well managed and technically stunning would get clicks from me 50 times a day. As I have stated in the past, I neither wish nor require a cult leader/demented pied piper to direct me in my erred ways as I find hope in my anticipation of some coming title.
Nice list DarkOcelot. The fud campaign has missed out on all these factors for some mysterious reason. Sadly though, they have gone so far with the previews, that even if they do decide the game is awesome, they won't want to back peddle and lose face. Cretins.
typical media scum.
I'm throwing my money at the screen right now.
"Will make people have more knowledge about Victorian London 1886" Just to be clear, you know there weren't really werewolves right? :)
Aside from the Werewolf part lol.
who knows... we weren't there.. XD
@morganfell: it is funny to see that Story is apparently the deciding factor and what's in the heart of the games you play and i respect this opinion. But the thing for me is that many things can take over the story, depending on the game genre i am playing. I will never stop being amazed by a mario game for it's unbelievable creativity and gameplay, and we all know that story has never been the strength of this series. On the other hand, games like MGS or quanticdream productions rely on the emotional part and you cannot catch emotions without telling a good story. If you only care about the story in a game, then you must not play much..
Just 3 reasons r enough - best graphics+ps4 exclusive+tps genre.
Something is a must buy and yet nobody has played the full game yet #logic
People hate on the story and yet no ones played he full game # logic Im not saying you talked about the story. I'm saying that in your case, people shouldn't hate on this games story because they haven't played the entire game. And yes, there was an article on saying the story seemed poor.
never said the story was bad, so you're talking to the wrong person about that one
when did he ever talk about the story?
@mrswank The author is just giving his opinion On why he thinks it's a must buy. That doesn't make it a must buy. I reckon most people have already decided wether or not they are getting the Order. Me defo :)
There are many games this year which are 'must buy' (before they are released) I m sure your comment is genuine but I feel like a lot of people get caught into the 'bias' (I cant find a better word to describe the flak this game unfairly gets) Its the same thing for a lot criticism. For example in a lot of games including stealth, at some point you got to be stealthy for a level or mission.. For the Order 1886 they call it 'forced stealth' and of course its really really bad./s
Articles like this exist because they're have between so many stories trashing this game based on a year old preview
This game will not be for everyone but for those who enjoy a dark scifi with wolves & baddazz guns & storyline. Count me in.
Reasons. 1. Graphics. 2-9 Graphics. 10. See reasons 1 to 9. As long as the graphics doesn't disappoint, I'll be happy.
*We would humbly request everyone that don’t judge something based on what others say about something until and unless you get to experience it yourself." I can agree with that. :) I use reviews to give me a general idea on whether I would like a game or not. But I'll never know for sure until I played it. I remember I bought Street Fighter 4 because I thought I would like the game based on the reviews for it. Turns out I didn't like the game at all and I ended up selling it quickly. Then Street Fighter Vs Tekken came out and I didn't buy it because I thought I wouldn't like the game based on the reviews it got. However I got it for free with plus and I really enjoy it. Moral of the story is that while reviews can give you a general idea on whether you would like a game or not the ultimate proof is actually playing the game.
I tried to be as positive as i could on writing about things that i love in the game but on the other hand i won't act like a complete fanboy. If something is good we should appreciate it rather than cursing and criticizing it before it is even released.
And how do you know if it is any good if the game has yet to be released? People who live in glass houses...
From what i have seen up til now it looks promising although i will give you my feedback after i get my hands on the game.
And how do you know it will be bad? How do we know that games like Uncharted 4, Quantum Break, Scalebound, Bloodborne and Halo 5 will be good? We dont all we can do is trust the developers ability to make good games and predict whether a game will bad or not. You agree with me that all games that I've mentioned have good developers making them right? So the chances of those games being bad are quote slim.
I said that? I'm pretty sure that I didn't say that the game would be bad. The thing is that the person that wrote this article doesn't know if the game will be good either, yet he says that people shouldn't criticize the game because it hasn't been released yet. He should listen to his own advice and not judge the game if he hasn't played it yet. People who live in glass houses... "How do we know that games like Uncharted 4, Quantum Break, Scalebound, Bloodborne and Halo 5 will be good?" We won't know until we play those games and even then it will be a matter of subjective opinion. Remember RE5, FF13, GTA 4 or Dragon Age 2 and how many people were disappointed by those games (me included) despite being sure that they would turn out to be great before release date?
Let's hope the story puts everything together and its a hit
because it is!!!
Its a definate must buy. But not for full price as a 12 hr storyline only isnt worth the 55 quid. If it had mp u get ya moneys worth. For me its a must buy when it drops in price to 29 quid a couple weeks later..
Did they comfirm it's a 12 hour campaign? That's my only concern with the game. I won't buy it if it's less then 10 hours cause a game with no multiplayer should never be less than 10 hours and if it is, shouldn't be $65.
I have been excited for this since the first gameplay reveal. The media that has been bashing it were the same that loves Gears of war for all the reasons they don't like The Order. Just because something has been done before,doesn't mean it can't be done better again.
I didn't think it was gona be all THAT great but the last trailer really pulled me in......
Articles like this are just as bad as the articles saying we shouldn't buy the game.
In what conceivable way? You're comparing this excited gamer writing about a game he considers to be "must-buy" on his gaming site, to a FUD campaign where a supposedly professional and well-respected, wide-reaching gaming site specifically told people not to pre-order the game, made it an example, and put the YouTube thumbnail as tears photoshopped onto Galahad's eyes? This person is saying that "they" consider it a must-buy. The other one singled out one game and said to other people "don't pre-order" when the same site was hyping up broken games pre-release, had plenty of opportunity to write this in the past about the state of these games, and will probably run the same hype machine with Halo 5, despite the glaring MCC issues.
AAH finally, the overcompensating section. Just buy the game if you want to, no need to make articles. You are literally just advertising the game for free by doing this. If it's getting bad previews, it's not exactly going to sell any less, anyone with a ps4 will buy this game at some point in the future, if not on day one because of the shiny shiny graphics and if there's one thing that sells this generation, it's shiny graphics, gameplay doesn't matter.
Not really. Minecraft sold over 80 million copies and it doesn't have shiny graphics. Look at the last of Us it sold over 9 million copies and has good graphics. But it sold well because the game is amazing. What about Call of Duty? It sold well but the games visuals are not anything to write home about. In conclusion the great graphics of a game doesn't necessarily mean that it will sell a ton. Also as for the previews you forgot about all the good previews from the recent demo of the game.
If you read the article carefully i mentioned that some journalists indeed showed interest and called it promising while others called it copycat and stuff.
