Happy for Level 5. Almost finished with it and really enjoying it :)
My impressions from Japan: It works extremely well. - I only played in handheld mode with my home WiFi (ultra fast 2gb per second). - The resolution seemed great. No blur or frame rate issues. - It was extremely responsive and arguably better than PSNow (I had the service for a month and stopped my subscription). - No loading times and even the motion controls work pretty well to look around.

It will be interesting....2 hours sounds like overkill. I doubt they have enough contents to keep it interesting. Remember those horrible Kinect tech demos?
I'm really enjoying it. Now in Chapter 9 (last chapter) and it's definitely a good game. You can see where they had to cut corners to finish the game, but overall very enjoyable.
I can't express how much I want this! It feels like a perfect match for the Switch.
Konami Is dead as far as I'm concerned. There's little they can to do regain my trust and money. And it's not like they will release a new MGS (without Kojima), a proper Silent Hill or even a decent Castlevania. They destroyed their biggest IP's by letting a bunch of jerks and bully's run the company.
It's not about needing it. It's about ignoring the fact that they would make millions from re-releasing old games and they wouldn't have to worry about gaps between big releases. But then again, this is Japan we are talking about.
I'll get excited when it releases and it ends up being good. Rare has let us down too many times under Microsoft.
I'm 10 hours in and so far I'm loving it. Love the characters, the pacing and the combat system. The only thing I don't like is the "chibi" sections. It really feels like they were done to shorten the games development time.
At this point they are surely focusing on the next gen (this is Microsoft we are talking about). They never truly delivered on their promise with Xbox One, so it will be interesting to see how the gaming community would react to new hardware at E3 2019. This year, I doubt they will have much to show
Their coorporate structure has already killed way too many studios. They need to support the ones they already have and give them more creative freedom. Most if Rare's talent left when they were forced to make Kinect games. And even their exclusive projects with other studios don't end well. From the cancellation of Scalebound to the lack of support for a Sunset Overdrive sequel.
I think I finally understand Slate magazine: If other outlets give a game a 9, they give it a 7. If they give it a 7, Slate gives it a 4.
Microsoft doesn't seem to know how to manage their own studios and keep their own IP's relevant (let alone new IP). A few years ago Halo was invincible....even Gears of War was a huge IP. Now they are mostly milking Forza every year. It's like they don't believe in their own projects. What happened to Rare's projects, Scalebound, Project Natal, Fable....they were shown too early and never given the time or budget to become great games....
At this point they are just trolling Microsoft 😂
I hope they can fix Metal Gear's boring stealth missions and Grab Turismo's annoying driving. (God of War was popular BECAUSE of it's combat system!!! And setting/characters). I'm curious about the new game and all the changes....but the combat was never broken to begin with 🤔
If you have to convince everyone that your game is not mediocre and incomplete, you have a flop. I'm yet to see a single glowing review. This is coming from Rare, took forever and Microsoft really hyped it. No excuses.
It's looking absolutely amazing. I'm glad Sony let the franchise rest after the disappointing God of War Ascension. Ready for this 👏
Seems like this could be the game that will finally close Rare. It is sad, but Microsoft has a history of buying Studios only to let them die.
Well...the game is basically free for game pass users so it's not surprising. People are already complaining about the lack of contents, so it will be interesting to see how long this lasts. Microsoft NEEDS a first part hit.
