The gameplay looked kind of boring, but hopefully it will feel better when we actually play it.

This Xbox gan is not impressed Sony. Take this game back to the drawing board

DarkVoyager35d ago

Well I kinda feel the same way. The visuals were great and I loved the atmosphere but the gameplay wasn’t really that impressive.

S2Killinit35d ago

I thought it was a fresh take on sword play that aimed for realism. I liked it. I don't know if its fun, but it sure is different from all the rest of the games with ultra fast swordplay.

What do you expect from a Samurai game?

Just blazing fast gameplay?

morganfell35d ago

They expect it to be on the Xbox...

Gamist2dot035d ago

They wanted to see characters flying in the air slicing and dicing 100x like DMC, smh.

This looks much better. Especially combat.

@DarkVoyager Shadow Die Twice is more fantasy than realism. Ghost of Tsushima is more realistic.

AspiringProGenji35d ago (Edited 35d ago )

Fast combat Vs slower combat. How is one better than the other specially when you have not played none? GoT is aiming for something different or new while shadow looks like a mix of BBd and Darl Souls. We lnow what to expect thre for for being faster doesn’t mean it is better. Just saying

Quick draw Sword. Laijutsu is a lethal sword style that Samurai's learn. Its slow, methodical but fast in execution with crazy precision. SP is aiming for just that.

starchild35d ago

I'm sure it was just a spelling error but that L should be an I (Iaijutsu). But yeah, the idea is to draw the sword and cut the opponent in one single fluid motion. I think it's amazing that Sucker Punch is including things like this in the combat system.

lxeasy35d ago

I agree this game didn't blow me away. Looked okay. Also it's funny how offended these ps fanboys are getting just because you didn't like one of their exclusives lol.

UCForce35d ago

That’s because you expected this game going to have fast pace gameplay which isn’t. From what I saw, it’s slow and methodically with fast execution. Sucker Punch did said Ghost Of Tsushima will be more realistic with combat. This is the true samurai, not some over the top badass samurai. Even I love Nioh, but the game is more fantasy than realistic.

AspiringProGenji35d ago

Says the one that gets offended when we like Pe exclusives

neocores805535d ago

guys dont even try with this idiot. He been going to ever playstaion post and calling it boring lol. Spiderman alone makes every single game mircoshit showed look like trash.

starchild35d ago

All you fanboys on either side are just tiresome. You do nothing but stink up the place with your toxic and repetitive rhetoric.

Gaming is thriving. Tons of amazing games have just been shown at this E3. No reason to be so negative all the time.

Snookies1235d ago (Edited 35d ago )

You know, it's okay to just come out and say you're jealous of a game on a system you don't own. Don't try to downplay something wonderful just because it hurts your pride.

how can a game where one wrong move and you're dead, be labeled "boring"??

EDIT - well said, morgan.

Muzikguy35d ago

This game looks amazing. I hope to have a 4K tv for this one.

doggo8435d ago

O awesome, 3 xbox fanboys swarming the comment section like flies, you guys are doing a great job.

snkiworld35d ago

but 1000 times better than sea of empty gameplay

Elda35d ago

You're in the wrong article.

Ninja_Ryu35d ago (Edited 35d ago )


Did you really think they would show all the gameplay? I remember when I first saw infamous I wasn't impress by the gameplay either until I finally played it and upgraded all of Cole's abilities.

DialgaMarine35d ago (Edited 35d ago )

I find your comment shocking and offensive... That the reaction you were looking for? Has the troll been fed so mommy and daddy can tuck him and say goodnight?

salmonade35d ago

Oh... it's you again. The man who played the same things over and over again in Destiny. He spent over 2000 hours in Destiny folks. But this man doesn't like 'boring' gameplay lol ok.

maybelovehate35d ago

Look at all these comments.. I am like a celebrity here. But yeah the game looked boring and like they used every samurai cliche they have ever seen.

UCForce35d ago (Edited 35d ago )

Do you expect this game to be fantasy ? People on YouTube watched it and they enjoyed it including myself. Ghost of Tsushima is close to Way Of Samurai. Even Sucker Punch said the game will be history accurate, no magic, no craziness.

OB1Biker35d ago (Edited 35d ago )

Best game of E3 to me.
Can you actually imagine this is open world. I was blown away. Its graphics, story telling, gameplay fluidity everything. Imo
You can see everything is story driven in it. I think a lot of studios should take note how to reveal games. SP did it right.

twiggytree1235d ago

This coming from a Destiny fanboy...

I'm doing it. Calling GOTY for 2019. At least GOTY contender. I love the feudal Japan setting and precision quick draw sword play.

lxeasy35d ago

I don't know the scenery looked great but the game looked boring.

doggo8435d ago

Keep fighting the good fight

Elda35d ago (Edited 35d ago )

Your comment is boring....yawn.

Brave_Losers_Unite35d ago

And lemme guess, you think Sea of Thieves is better?

thisismyaccount35d ago

GoT looks great, but Death Stranding gonna be the next Bloodborne! THE game to must have....

starchild35d ago

Well, for my tastes Ghost of Tsushima is far more appealing than Death Stranding, even though I still think Death Stranding looks amazing.

Also, as much as I loved Dark Souls and Bloodborne I'm still much more excited about Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. The setting and more varied gameplay and traversal are my ideal cup of tea.

monkeyporn35d ago

LOLOLOL This game won't even be in GOTY contention. GOTY is going to TLOU II just give Naughty Dog the trophy now.

NovusTerminus35d ago

It kind of reminds me of Way of the Samurai, which failed to evolve with the times sadly. So I am super excited for this game, looks great so far.

starchild35d ago

Series like Tenchu and Way of the Samurai have been dead (or at least dormant) for many years. But with games like Sekiro Shadows Die Twice, Ghost of Tsushima and Nioh it definitely feels like a renaissance of those kinds of games. I've been hoping for this for years.

Braindeadninja35d ago

Game looks dope. Those who find sword play boring, u can go n play nioh, nier, devil may cry, bayonata. For everyone who is interested in trying something new, you are welcome.

Elda35d ago

A definite day one buy for me.
