I sadly found out about the Kickstarter after it was already closed, but I suppose this partnership means the game will also be available in stores.

I have a pc so had no worries of a store release. I thought of getting a physical copy but it would have been a little more.

Getting to be a character in the game would have been nice but I don't have that much cash to burn on it

FinalFantasyFanatic1257d ago

I think you can still pay for it according to the backer E-mail I got today (but you'll have to pay more for not being a backer). I still want to get that little extra game that I missed out on because they offered it while I was at work.

Nyxus1257d ago

@ FinalFantasyFanatic: thanks, I should look into that!

Snookies121258d ago

Wow that's aesthetically pleasing! Props to the team for the visuals on this one! Don't know much about it, but it certainly has my attention now.

phoenixwing1258d ago (Edited 1258d ago )

Those visuals are what made supporting it a no brainer. Even if I don't end up liking the game (seems impossible right now) I'll still play it for the art style

Andy_Dee1258d ago

I love the style of the game!

Reminds of the good old jrpgs.

Both Suikoden and Grandia 1 are some of my favorite games and getting this to be a reality was an easy choice for me! 😊

Supported it day one! Getting a PS5 version most likely!

A switch version would be kinda cool too!

phoenixwing1258d ago (Edited 1258d ago )

You should check your email I'm pretty sure they already ask which version you want

It might have been a different kickstarter though that I'm thinking about

Andy_Dee1258d ago (Edited 1258d ago )

Yeah you're right but they said if there is a newer console generation you might be able to get it for that. I chose for PS4. But maybe I can request a PS5 now instead. Gonna look into it! :)

phoenixwing1257d ago

Good luck I hope you get a ps5 version

Andy_Dee1257d ago

Thanks man! I will check my email!

Stellar Blade: 6. Hmmmmmmmmm.

Levii_9268d ago

I laughed my ass of at the score.

coolbeans68d ago

Yeah. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and read what they have to say, but it's suspicious in the face of other recent indies that've been praised.

Levii_9268d ago

I bet Edge is gonna give Breath of the Wild 3.0 a 10 again.

Tacoboto68d ago

Anyone else playing Stellar Blade and made it to the Great Desert?

I felt the story barely had us do anything here but there are a lot of side quests taking us back and the framerate is kind of all over the place. Curious if anyone else is noticing the same?

It's the only blemish so far in what's surprisingly become my current GOTY.

Levii_9268d ago

I don't see how can the framerate be all over place? It's litteraly one of the most stable games released, unless maybe you have it on Balanced mode, put it on Resolution or Framerate mode.

And yes the Great Desert is almost exclusively just a gorgeous big zone for side quests and fun.

Tacoboto68d ago (Edited 68d ago )

Yeah that's what's surprising me - the rest of the game even on Balanced feels like a solid 60fps (and my display is 120hz VRR).

But even on Prioritize Performance it feels like it struggles in certain spots only in the Great Desert. The Buried Ruins section felt like the roughest area but another one was more into the desert near a statue with scaffolding wrapped around (and a dozen or so enemies including the tentacles).

All the side quests I had there are done now so I may only return now to fish again. But framerate aside I agree - it's one of the more beautiful gaming deserts and this game's side quests have been way more nice and varied than I thought they'd be.

Levii_9268d ago

I have to say i haven't explored the Great Desert 100% maybe just 40%, i plan on exploring everything there on NG+ so i don't know how Buried Ruins feel yet and also i'm running the game unpatched so maybe that's it i don't know but for me the Great Desert is perfect framerate wise if it's not on Balanced mode.

I absolutely agree man, the game is much more than i thought it would be in terms of content, exploration, collectables, secrets and side quests. Classic video game stuff! None of the modern BS. It's my GOTY as well so far.

VersusDMC68d ago

From what i remember the 2 open world hubs only have 1 story mission each. The gun missons. Most of the open world sections are for side missions, upgrades, cans,costumes, etc. Still fun to run around and discover some wierd puzzles there.

I feel like there are some fps dips but not all over the place.

And for people who don't do enough of the side missions...know that you will be locked out of a section of the game if you don't do enough. Fill that lily bar to 100%.

Elda68d ago (Edited 68d ago )

Stellar Blade a 6? That score is blasphemy. Score should be a 9, no lower than an 8. It's GOTY.

badz14968d ago

It's EDGE! The only games they are generously rating are Nintendo games.

Michiel198968d ago

so the 10 they gave to Last of Us, LBP and Bayonetta also were rigged? or only if you don't agree with it?

badz14967d ago (Edited 67d ago )

@Michiel1989

TLoU and LBP are GoTY winning games highly regarded throughout the industry, what's your point? and what does Bayonetta has anything to do with this argument or even Sony?

The Meta for Stellar Blade is 81 after 130 reviews and a user score of 91. EDGE is giving it 21 points lower. Rise of Ronin? EDGE 60 vs Meta 76, Spider-man 2, EDGE 80 vs 90 Meta, R&C Rift Apart, EDGE 70 vs 88 Meta, Astro's Playroom, EDGE 70 vs Meta 83, Sackboy Big Adventure, EDGE 60 vs Meta 79, FFXVI EDGE 70 vs Meta 87 and remember Ghost of Tsushima? EDGE gave it 60 vs Meta 83...like WTF was THAT?? I can go on dude. It's an established trend for EDGE to be harsh when it comes to most PS games but they are very generous with Nintendo's games.
