If the game can be beaten in 2 hours, but it's a killer 2 hours, then I think most will just keep the game to replay in the future. If the game can be beaten in 2 hours and it's absolutely dreadful like, I dunno, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs let's say -- then it's awesome that customers can get their money back.
I never thought for a second that a game like Nier would sell 1 million, don't think Square Enix did either. Could see this coming after the success of P4 on the PSvita, but still -- a weird, turn-based JRPG with sim elements sitting at the number one spot in the charts in 2017 makes me happy.
So not only are we getting loads of interesting, single player focused games, but they're actually doing really well too? Almost too good to be true.
I wouldn't go that far, but I get where you're coming from. It really struggles to maintain 30fps and that's with constant screen tearing. Really horrible performance on console but the game was so damn good that I could overlook it.
See this is the problem with this goddamn site. He is right, you are wrong The PS3 version of Bayonetta is by far the worst version. It never even comes close to reaching 60fps on PS3, and the input lag meant that the higher difficulties were basically impossible. You're not helping anyone by saying there's nothing wrong with it.
I'd love to see Bayonetta come to PS4 because it's a great game and deserves to reach a bigger audience...
They've released far better games than Assassin's Creed 2 in the last ten years. Far Cry 3 and Rayman Legends are two of the best games they've ever put out. Everyone is just sick of this open world Ubisoft formula where the map is littered with icons and boring side activities.
Got this on Steam and it's surprisingly good. One of the better 2D Souls-like games.
Apart from the Diablo games, I'd say those scores are all fair, especially by today's standards. You left off the only Edge review I have a serious problem with: 7/10 for God of War 2...... Insanity!
To be fair, the only reason I bought Persona 4 on PS2 was the 9/10 Edge sticker that was plastered on the box. They were championing this series for a long time.
Oh my god. This is one of the best multiplayer games I've ever played, but for some reason it never seemed to reach its full potential on Steam. Kinda hope they make it a PS Plus game at first because it genuinely deserves to be as popular as something like Rocket League.
Not a Double Fine game. It's an old Lucasarts point n click and it's brilliant.
Spot on. I don't think we'll be looking back at BOTW in fifteen years thinking "Wow, now that was a videogame". If they keep the basic template but fix some of the issues like repeated content and lack of old school dungeons for the next Zelda, then that game will be a beast.
That said, I'm having a lot of fun with BOTW right now, the fact that they made the world fun to explore and engage with without resorting to dishing out experience points for eve...
So this seven for Zelda then, is that a serious seven or not?
You see the problem.
I dunno man, 92 on metacritic is quite high, and it's widely considered to be the best game on PS4.
Played Bloodborne? Not exactly silky smooth.
Eh Bioshock Infinite and Deadly Premonition getting tens always rubbed me the wrong way.
The user score which has an inordinate amount of ones and zeros from people who have never played and never will play the game. And yes, there are plenty of bull tens too. Let's not pretend the user score actually means anything.
Haven't played Nioh in a little while but I'm certain that weapon drops from enemies are rare. Every enemy in BOTW drops a usable weapon. I don't know why so many people have a hard time getting used to the durability. Within the first few hours I had accepted that weapons break and therefore I shouldn't get attached to them. People are acting like the mechanic is a mistake that Nintendo accidentally left in the game.
10/10 has never meant flawless, perfect or anything like that. It is simply the reviewer's highest recommendation, a game that you you should go out and buy as soon as you can. With that said, I don't think I could give BOTW a ten but it IS a great game. As a side note, where the hell were all these articles when Uncharted 4 and MGSV came out and got 10s all over the shop?
Think the world record for Bloodborne is something like 32 minutes. Guess you never played that one either.
