At this point, it’s gonna have to be the most underhandedly monetized, micro-transaction-y nightmare game to ever possibly recoup their losses that it’s essentially impossible for it to do well.
Absolutely; I’ll add my own kudos, they’re well deserved. Fantastic work.
This is a nice longform article in the vein of Jason’s Schreier’s reporting of behind-the-scenes game development. Glad to see this article type again. Great job!
People who thought Microsoft was going to buy Bethesda and then be like “lol, we’re going to release all our most awaited exclusives on all platforms!” were seriously deluded. Microsoft could have gotten THAT a lot cheaper.
The trick for me on the map in Forza is to just use the filter to hide things I am not interested in doing. If you leave all the events on the map, it was barely manageable after about 10 hours of unlocking events, but 2 years later, wow that make is choc a block.
If you, the player playing the game, switch between the two modes and cannot tell what is being lost as you go from one to the other, then chances are that nothing (for you) is being lost.
Yeah, but you can’t judge all games by the same graphical yard stick. Bethesda games have never been the best lookers for their time, but the scale of size, handcrafted content and overall interactivity is where they tend to shine. They aren’t wizards, going for scale and scope has a price, and that’s usually being at… Read more
Not sure I’d call it petty to keep what is now a first party title an exclusive. Also, it’s not like XBox will be the only option. The XBox is just one part of their approach. The game will be available on PC and likely xCloud which means it will be playable on an assortment of other devices. Which given they also… Read more
The argument that its still gamebryo, or that the engine hasn’t changed is the horseshit. Of course it’s changed, you just compared Oblivion and Fallout 76, bugs are yes, part of the Bethesda experience and they shouldn’t be praised for it, but to act like they’re the same is delusional. I think I should have been… Read more
I think you’re being a bit harsh. You are commenting on a website dedicated to video games, which implies you have a stronger than average interest in them. Nintendo’s biggest mistake was including Wii in the name, and then prominently featuring the controller in its marketing. A casual gamer can certainly be forgiven… Read more
Oh hey, people talking about this like we didn’t already know about VF5US for weeks or months already. And also people at the head already said years ago that they want to actually have something new to provide for VF6. Read more
That would be wonderful!
Oh boy! How I'd love a VF6 optimized PS5 and the new Xbox.
I guess I’d rather just have an actual new Virtua Fighter game, but fuck me, right?
Time to dust off my Jeffry combos from a decade ago to bring pain to a new generation.
I really hope this leads to GTA: SA being reverse engineered as well. That game has been unplayable in it’s original state for over a decade. Even now, you can buy it on Steam, but it doesn’t properly run. Mouse controls are weird and the game thinks it’s pirated so every car you drive always has the brakes on.
Though,… Read more
