It's a really fantastic online system, but I don't like how it made players and influenced Sony to have to pay for online multiplayer.
Your anecdotal evidence is understood. My anecdotal evidence has a whole group of people enjoying the game as well as those who don't like it. It's a polarizing game. Nothing wrong with that, but to try to say the controls are objectively terrible (you didn't do this, but some have) is highly disingenuous at best and highly childish at worst.
If everyone hated Star Fox Zero, the Metacritic would be even lower, and there wouldn't be players and reviewers commenting how the controls are engaging and fun. I have, however, seen that apparently people who do like the controls are obviously people who love everything Nintendo does, which is nonsense, and quite console warrior-ish.
Ooh! That's an excellent idea for a future list. Though since the genre is much smaller, it might be hard to think of ten underrated ones.
I've read about how the devs keep patching new things, but the players keep finding new exploits. It must be maddening to be on the development team, and I can't help but feel sorry for them.
A lot of gamers care about that sort of stuff.
With approvals needing to be at 10/10 now no matter what, buried stories (or ones that don't get 10 approvals as soon as they're posted) generally have a death sentence, or in N4G's terms, serve as failed posts now. Not liking that at all.
I think part of is that Nintendo isn't making its "Nindie" presence very known to non-Nintendo owners. That would definitely get many to change their tune, I believe.
@LemonParty45 I like how I mention Xbox 360 and something bad about it, and the first thing someone does is go "B-B-but Sony too!"
Not everyone deals in console wars or fanboyism. Chill out. Both consoles had problems. Heck, my Wii was the first Nintendo console to break down on me.
Might be the time to pick up Okami HD!
I guess that's them editorializing this news. I don't see the Xbox 360 as that. It was the highest malfunctioning one, if that's what they meant.
I'm not a big proponent of eSports, so this news doesn't affect me. Those who enjoy that kind of thing will have something to look forward to from Gears 4, which is great.
Legend of Korra released in 2014. That's not lately.
That was the first game on part one. Still grinds my gears.
Definitely. This seems like a really fun setting.
I need to play this series. I've only heard good things about it!
As long as a shooter doesn't tell the story while forcing you to slowly walk through a linear corridor, I'm fine with it.
As long as the frame-rate is solid, it doesn't bother me.
Agreed. More meaty games interest me for VR. Tech demos are nice for proof of concept, but once that concept has been seen, it is a bit vapid.
The biggest success for the Wii U for me is the best exclusives imo. Third party titles? That's definitely PS4's and Xbox One's forte, but exclusives? For now, I really like the Wii U the best. Well, technically, I like the 3DS the best, but that's splitting hairs! :)
