Not really. This was going to eventually happen due to gaming companies abusing the loot box system and its predecessor micro-transaction system on mobile platforms for years.

EA just spend up things by trying to go to the next step with Battlefront II. Even if they didn't, Valve was going to cause it to happen due to their own recent gambling scandal with CS:GO.

What also hurt them was more studies have started to establish ties between loot boxes and gambling in regards to addiction similarities.

I suppose its a form of gambling, but not necessarily on the level of actual casino level gambling based on the simple fact that you're guaranteed to get SOMETHING for your money.

That being said, loot boxes are very much guilty of playing the to pride of the individual who lands something rare. Buying cosmetics are cool, but the randomness of the boxes and getting something rare definitely boosts ones ego.

The 'studies' are social science bullshit, the same type of studies that tried to say games can cause sexism/racism/violence.

These things are products and the loot box situation should have been a convo between gamers and publishers. It is beyond why you thing setting precedent that govt can legislate in-game content given every past attempt ever. Particularly somebody who follows the industry.

Not two months ago Trump was putting a mass shooting onto the game industry, and here we are welcoming govt regulation like these subject will never intertwine ever.

And why? Cause some 'thing' takes too long to grind for.

Ha! 100% the voice acting is the same. I had never played them and didn't quite get the hype surrounding them... Doesn't hold up by today's standards in my opinion.

I worked on the Man Mo temple/ the area surrounding it and Guilin Forest.
Unfortunately SEGA are quite shitty with my NDA untill release, got lots to say though . Highlight was probably getting to knock heads with some of the Yazuka team which was neat.

Tell you what though... This past year has been quite surreal! I used to watch Gametrailers now Easy Allies and having somebody you watch a few times a week keep expressing their want for something you know about but can't talk about is strange.

Masterwork Exotic weapon perks in Destiny 2 are fucking absurd. Fully Auto Vigilance Wing.

New armor sets look cool. Will probably go back and play this for a few weeks. I'm a lore nerd, and fighting a hive worm god sounds pretty cool.

Kingdom Hearts 3 needs to hurry up and come out already , hoping due to it coming on Xbox that they also release a remastered version of the first two games or just include them free with number 3 🙂

I doubt they're going to. Kingdom Hearts remasters came out for PS3, then they remastered them for PS4 in the 1.5 & 2.5 double pack over a year ago, then remastered the 3DS game and added some other stuff in Kingdom Hearts 2.8 and they've done nothing for XBox.

Rockstar have removed a ton of songs from the Grand Theft Auto IV soundtrack, most of them from fictional in-game radio station Vladivostok FM. Apparently, the songs removed were only licensed for 10 years, and the game release 10 years ago today (4/29/2008) and they want to not have to pay royalties. The removed songs were all replaced with new ones via a patch/update.

Want to pre-order (via PS Store) RDR II, but worried about how much storage space I'll need free to install and have saves if Borderlands 3 releases next year...don't want it (RDR II) to be some massive game that I end up having to delete to make room for BL3 when it drops.

A good ways into God of War, and I can safely say it has been overhyped by game journalists. It is not the life changing, industry redefining experience they are making it out to be.

BUT, it is not overrated. This is a very, very, VERY good video game. Good enough that I feel confident saying nothing else this year will top it, and it has essentially clinched GOTY.

Only thing that will be able to challenge it is RDR 2, provided it doesn't get delayed again.

Might wanna hold off and wait for Red Dead 2 to come out.

But I agree, God of War is great. Buddy on my friends list is just flying through it and I'm taking my sweet, sweet time discovering every nook and crany.

I mean it's Rockstar, and it's Red Dead. It will be amazing and a sure fire GOTY candidate. But we have been there before. Could see GoW edging it out in part because it's world and characters are so fresh. Surprisingly, not a lot of games out there that explore Norse mythology.

Also, while Rockstar's gameplay always feels really good, it just doesn't have the depth of a game like God of War. All the different things you can do in a fight, as well as the more tactical approach this installment has taken, really make it hard for me to see Red Dead topping it from a gameplay perspective.

That's the other thing. Combat in previous God of War games always felt a bit floaty and weightless. Feels a lot heavier here. Everything move feels like it has weight to it. Even when you pop up and juggle some poor son of a bitch in the air.

Also, this game is a perfect example of why not every god damn video game has to be open world. It gives you lots to explore, while still keeping you focused on a linear path. The extremely well crafted narrative helps with that.

I have so many open world games that I never finished. Not because I didn't enjoy them. I love the far cry games, assassins creed, shadow of war, etc. But their main narrative feels so uninspired and tacked on that I feel no compulsion to complete it before the next shiny new game drops.

GoW gives you just enough to explore and get that sense of wonder with the game world, but pulls you back into the main quest line before it gets tedious.

I mean you can certainly have different kinds of hack and slash. But the general definition isn't that specific. Pretty sure most people consider any action game that focuses primarily on melee weapon combat to be hack and slash.

Brawler is fair, but it's certainly not in the western Hack n Slash family (which is already slightly removed from JP Hack n Slash).

I would absolutely love to explain how my 3rd fave gaming genre works, why it works, and all the little historical nuggets that go with it. But as a TLDR for now:

- Over the shoulder 'behind follow cam' is not conducive to Hack n Slash. There's a reason the perspective is often fixed leading to the genre's trademark stubborn camera angles.
- The 'one player fighting game' input intensity of Hack n Slash is not because it wants to annoy casuals. Hack n Slash, like a fighting game, demands you operate within a rigid yet flexible sandbox of actions in often quick reflexive manners. Lots of fighting game tropes carry over to HnS because of this (frame data, punishes, stretching combos, etc). Modern GoW, while 'presentation wise' intensive, is not actually demanding in this way. It is strategic via effect states and other mechanics that do involve melee per se - but not HnS requirements.
- This is NOT to say this GoW is more casual, there are many types of challenge in games. I am just saying in terms of genre (HnS) and sub-genre (western HnS), this game was obviously not built as a Hack n Slash game. It has almost none of the mechanical tropes related to the genre, and that's fine.

Hell I only noted the distinction in the first place cause it's very urk'ful to me when people make direct comparisons between this and the old GoW. As a series, sure. Game mechanics? That's as jarring as comparing RE7 to the RE4; it's just a different ball game. All I'm sayin.
