I think Nintendo’s response was the extremely ginned up outrage among an minority was perfect. They put the game out anyway and let people play or not play it.

Does this mean Ghost of Tsushima is a PS5 exclusive? Pretty stoked nonetheless. At least I'll have a new console to play my despair away if the 2020 election goes to shit.

Such a beautiful, wonderful game. But seriously, fuck the rain. Nothing fun about it, just absurdly annoying and way too frequent.

In my experience, it only rains a lot in BoTW when you’re going somewhere the game doesn’t really want you to go yet. Obviously, the first thing I wanted to do when I left the plateau was unlock all the towers. And in my game it rained all the way from Lanayru to fucking Deep Akkala. Mad deaths. Mad time spent Read more

This is pretty much the best option imo. There’s no way it would appeal to a wide audience if it was an old turn based combat style. This is a compromise that blends action-rpg with turn-based RPG and it looks absolutely amazing to me.

Even if they release before December, I wonder if 2020 may be the new benchmark, as much as we look back at 2007 today with reverence.

Gita, thank you. I can’t say I always see eye to eye with staff writers, but I can wholeheartedly say that Kotaku is a better place for having you here and that your efforts make a difference, each and every day.

I know it sounds like excusing it but I love the jank in these games, as they remind me it’s a labour of love and not just yet another cleanly made but very generic game. That’s not to say there aren’t moments that it breaks the game but a reload usually fixed that. Read more
