Two days before launch is fine. Same day as preload and... its only 35 GBs so I don't have to reorganize my who whole library just to fit it on lol.

Hopefully the game sticks the landing. Demo was a great time so I'm hoping we're not in for another Hogwarts Legacy type of situation.

By that I mean, its flaws don't get swept under the rug just because of the controversy the game doesnt deserve. HL was a solid game overall but at its core, it was an above-average Ubisoft-like from quest structure to a physical edition with an online installation requirement to being riddled with SJW shoehorning.

If this game gets good reviews that's best, but if it doesn't or is received as mid, I can't imagine the conversation actually focusing on what the reviewers critique but the reviewers themselves.

You like the demo?? Buy the game and stop relying on reviews from people you don’t know.. could be review will be done by someone who actually didn’t like the demo..
day one for me regardless of reviews i never consider them


I agree Reviews are one person opinion who cares about them we already played the demo we know its good.

Tacoboto41d ago

I have the game already preordered based on how much I liked the demo, and no where do I say I'm relying on reviews from people I don't know, so I don't know who you're actually talking to there.

I also know a game can demo well in a short slice but fall short in the final product, too.

I loved the demo, but honestly I hold out for reviews just to make sure the game works and there are no deal breakers and to get some clarity on questions I may have before going in. It's just safer that way in this day and age. Before you Buy is probably my go to series. But I wouldn't say reviews dictate my purchasing or playing decisions, rather help with avoidance or "wait for discount" if warranted, given that time is limited.

I mean I enjoyed games like Alpha Protocol and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed even though they didn't review well, but I wouldn't recommend day one on those titles. Rise of the Ronin is something I'll enjoy too, but reviews helped me with the "wait for discount" decision.

So true, not necessarily just this game but I decide my games myself from what I've seen of them as opposed to someone else's perspective of their likes and dislikes of that game. I'm the one parting with my money, i'll decide damn it lol.

Not as confident as how far ahead Sony has done on its first party stuff, but at least it’s not this day of bullshit. Cautious confidence lol. I’ll be preordering tomorrow. Demo sold me on it.

Is this game going to release on PC in the future?

Nothing has been announced for PC yet but I wouldn’t be surprised if it comes one day.

I already know that IGN France is going to be glowing for this game in their review.
