the game is at least 40 - 50 hours in length, and has at least 600 puzzles to solve. so it's not just a "simple puzzle game with simple graphics." #61.2

no. sony hasn't said a word about the actual retail price. #3.3.5

it's got its tricky moments, and it doesn't give you a *single* clue, but it's a very good game so far. #2.1

"I've already stated my reasons for not liking The Order over and over and over again to you."

i'm only addressing your argument on the *story*. you've argued that they purposefully left stuff out, you've argued that they didn't resolve or explain everything, you argued that they left vague hints to be explored in the sequels, etc... if The Order is the *first* game in the *series*, then it makes perfect sense for them... #2.1.13

@gangsta:

"Keyword, Ziggurcat is the GAME, not television shows.... "

you're focusing on the medium rather than the general concept of the question - which you've *still* not answered - do you expect a series, (and The Order IS a planned series of games) to completely resolve *everything* in the very first episode? TV shows are often serial, so it was the simplest example to use, conceptually, in comparison to a game that's expected to h... #2.1.11

@gangsta:

"why should I answer the question when it has NOTHING to do with the problems of The Order."

uh... what are you talking about? you mentioned the story of the game as one of the problems in your OP (you referred to it as a "glaring hole"). your argument was (in a nutshell) that there was a lack of closure and too many questions left unanswered, so the question of whether you felt that, say, a TV series needed to resolve everythin... #2.1.7

@magician:

there's no difference, when dealing with storytelling, between a TV show, and a video game that has a strong, cinematic story component.

and yes, R@D has said that the order was going to be more than one game, not a one-off.

"Ru Weerasuriya, creative director at Ready At Dawn, recently talked with GamesTM about The Order: 1886 when he spoke about the possible future of the franchise:

We've built this I... #2.1.5

@gangsta:

you never answered the question. do you expect a series to blow their wad all within the first episode?

"Do you expect a TV show to establish a world and their characters in that world enough within the first episode to tell a coherent and interesting story to get you hooked so you can tune in next week?"

yes, and that's what they did with the order. that's what building a story actually does - establish enough... #2.1.3

"This was a huge glaring hole in the game. It seems the devs were so confident that this game was going to be a hit that they purposely left out the more intriguing parts of the world and left vague hints of this world to be explored in the sequels."

so do you expect, say, a TV series to blow their proverbial wad all within the first episode? if your answer is "no", then why would you expect the devs of this game to do that if their intent was clearly to b... #2.1

@neoridr:

you've misunderstood. he's saying that you get the game, and the expansion with this offering. they have never just handed out a DLC expansion that required you to purchase the full game. #2.2.3

$40 is too much for at least 40-50 hours worth of gameplay, and at least 600 puzzles? yeah, no... #1.10.1

what does the length of its development have to do with anything? just because it's an "indie" title doesn't necessarily mean it has to have a lesser development cycle than other games. all it means is that blow took the time that was necessary to properly make his game. so unless you have the same issue with all of the other games that have been delayed, you can cut the fake concern.

you're also criticizing the price without really knowing the amount o... #30.2

@gangsta:

can you elaborate on how the analogy is "stupid"? keep in mind that it *only* addresses those who feel as though they are entitled to getting the PS4 version of the PS2 titles for free, not those who just want to be able to play their original, old PS2 games/downloaded PS2 classic from their PS3 without the enhancements... and i think the analogy is only "stupid" if you (i'm not saying you, personally... i mean "you" in the general... #8.2.7
20d ago by ziggurcat | View comment
that's not what the analogy is about, Rookie. ignore the medium. it's an analogy directed at those who think that just because they paid for the game on PS2 15 years ago, that they are entitled to play the new, enhanced version with all of the extra features for free because the argument has always been, "why should I have to pay for a game that I already bought?"

the other thing people seem to fail to understand is the fact that this is *not* backwards co... #8.2.2

@capps:

"Could you concieve of a way a dark souls game could have an easier mode?"

it's called co-op, and it's been available in those games since the very beginning. they get that the game is hard, which is why they've integrated a way for people to ask for assistance. co-op is considered by a lot of souls veterans as the game's "easy mode."

"Seriously, how would having an easy mode in dark souls do... #42.1.2

if you happen to have an xbox one, you can try it for free via their preview program. #1.1

no they shouldn't. if games like the souls series or bloodborne are too difficult for the author, then perhaps he should either:

A) not play those games.

or

B) get better at them.

and besides, there's always the option to go co-op in the souls games if you're *really* having difficulty getting past something. #38
