Good. I love it when the underdog succeeds. Well done to them!

Yep. This game could have gone so sideways. Happy to see it didn't.

It’s a fun game something missing from many games now a days. Comparing to dying light this is much more fun even though both series are excellent in my opinion

This is the first time a game goes through development hell, changes studios and designs, then ends up being a success. Everyone at Dambuster Studios should be proud.

Yeah usually that's a sign of failure. Also it shows that no one should count a game out until its out and out for a 1 week.

I happy for Dam Busters. If Jedi Survivor and Tears of the Kingdom weren't right around the corner I'd buy this but money and time are scarce.


over 1 million have bought this game even with those games coming out Looking forward to Jedi Survivor.

Not all of us can afford to spend money on three games per month. There are other important things like bills, making sure children are cared for, food, gas, etc. Inflation doesn't help. Glad it's doing well but I'll be patient and play when I'm ready.

I have the money but I have a stack of PS5 games I still need to get to and PSVR2 games. Some games I wait. I bought Trinity Trigger day 1 because I want to support rpg games and particular devs that makes games I enjoy the most.
But some of these games like Dead Island 2 I will wait for a physical sale because I know I am not going to play it anytime soon.

I already have a bunch of other games preordered too like FF16. Just lack of time and why spend full price for every game?

bangoskank396d ago

Exactly. Throwing money at games that will just end up in my ever growing backlog is just dumb and irresponsible. Tears of the Kingdom is one of those games however that does not end up in my backlog. Same with Jedi Survivor. RE4 Remake, Ragnarok, and Dead Space Remake were those types of games as well. I guess that's all subjective though.

Same here.. still got about 30 Switch games and about 20 games on my laptop, lol .. and they're mostly just visual novels which takes me weeks to get through one to begin with, lol
