    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I only really played a little of the Campaign when it was far earlier in development, and there was no way to gauge how it would come along, but I'm totally blown away by how great this is. I straight up love it. It's Crackdown 1++ keeping everything great about the original while embellishing a little on the objectives, giving you more of them and making them all a little more unique. As much as the open nature of the first was amazing, it often kinda felt like killing the same variant of boss over n over. There's been some really interesting ones so far. The whole game is great around being an OTT sandbox that you have fun in, and I think this is my favourite of the three campaigns. I honestly don't understand where the negativity for the Campaign is coming from with all these reviews. I honestly don't get it, unless it's been so long that a newer generation of kids haven't really experienced the first game, or games like this of a far more open-ended nature.

    Best implementation of the worst features

    Yes, we absolutely have differing in opinions, which is fine. I do find in general the idea that all QTE’s and Stealth Sections are crap to be massively roll-eyes sweeping and reductive statement, although to be fair Shenmue is a great example of QTE’s used well, and even from the game that coined the term.

    Nope, I quite enjoy them in quite a large number of games, too many to list really or rattle off the top of my head. The often add a nice interactive layer to an otherwise passive scene. Yes, Shenmue is a good example of good QTE’s Nope, I quite enjoy them in quite a large number of games, too many to list really or rattle off the top of my head. Ironically Shenmue is an example of a game with one of the worst shoe horned in stealth sections ever.

    I’ve only play a few hours of this and from my early impressions, I think this is probably the best of the three Crackdown campaigns. Orbs replenishing your health and shields is great! and totally fixes that weird thing in the older ones where you had to just wait around a bit for your health the regen in a game that never gives you a break. It rewards aggressive play, something a bit is nicked a little from Blooodborne low the new new elemental damage stuff and the shields that you can knock off enemies with some melee attacks. Seems like CD1, with some great refinements!

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy

    I hope these new films don’t just do another Death Stark.

    I loved The Last Jedi so I'm totally pumped for these new films, which I presume might be a few years off.

    Literally not even what I said. But yes, I'm looking forwards to playing through the Campaign of this which I will be doing this weekend thanks to Game Pass. It is really interesting to see how positively it's being received here! And how, well,.. negative a lot of the reviews are. It really does feel like the reviewers all wanted something totally different. I find that approach odd.

    All of those are -- from my point of view -- moot issues. Control and menu system related, which I had absolutely zero issues with and would more put problems with them under user's unwillingness to learn or general human error. The "less funnelled linear mission" is exactly an example of people criticising something because people want it to be a different kind of game. People think open world immediately == sandbox design, but that's not what RDR2 is trying to do at all.

    It's almost like individual games have their own flavour and variety is the spice of life.

    So very much this yes. Applicable to so many games. I'd also apply this to something like Red Dead Redemption 2, where I feel the criticisms leveled at it, more specifically from the forum are kinda doing exactly that. Not really considering what that game is trying to achieve and be, and instead leveraging criticisms because it's not what they want it to be.

    I was involved in the development of this -- it's something that I don't really talk about on the forum as I don't really want to mix my professional life with a sometimes loud mouthed and opinionated internet persona. But it's nice to express something about it as I spent so much of my life working on this game... and it's cool to see it out. The Wrecking Zone multiplayer to be exact, which was around 18 months of my own involvement before I left the game's industry for something entirely different over a year ago, so It's really interesting to see it all evolve from where I saw it last. The Campaign is pretty much all new to me though, and as a massive fan of the original -- I was also involved in all of CD2's development, as a side note -- I'm really looking forwards to playing through the Campaign of this new game.

    Activision announces record results. Fires 800 people

    Worth noting that Sekiro originally started life as a Tenchu project, before changing the direction to a new IP. That probably explains the Activision team up.

    If you're interested in playing a new game from From Software, and you're choosing to soft boycott it because of the publisher you're massively shotgunning your nose off to spit your face. But, people's money is people's money and everyone is entitled to do what they think is best.
