don't care about the sheep on the internet. If jumping off the top of the building is trending, there are some that will do it.

this dreamcastguy on YouTube made me interested in the game. He gave it a 7 though.

What about Skill Up? He was one of the first to give it a bad rating before it launched. And of cuz ACG. I saw Jimquisition review it, got spoilers so din watch but can see it's a negative review.

Also because of Skill Up I am now thinking of buying Days Gone... thoughts?

I mean those ppl that love to partake in the review bombing nonsense. If you can wait just wait till its bargain bin price lor.

I had days gone with me since black Friday. Haven't played. Lol

Acg haven't review the game yet. But from the little that I know is they kinda dislike the way one character is and that's the character which actually interest me... Can't say more. I felt that the game had already been spoilt for me.

For me it seems like one of the complaints is that TLOUP2 is "more of the same", which can be good for some, but others may have wanted something new given the 7 year gap between the 2 games.

Plot twists and whatnot, it's a story that the director chose to take, like it or not, but that's the story. No different from watching a movie expecting a hero wins ending only to get a hero dies ending and feeling the shock when you walk out of the cinema.

Another gripe is that the game can last 25-35 hours depending on how much you explore... it's an interesting gripe, that they wanted the game to be over with already. More a testament to how bad they feel the game is than the length tbh. I played AC:Odyssey and all DLCs 80 hrs and didn't find it long cuz I enjoyed it. Jimquisition even came out to say it's too long and 8-15 hour stories are better but his point was partly on production costs.

Story that has the heroes die at the end always interest me more.

Jim also didn't like Ac Odyssey. And he also didn't like hell blade which is low production cost and short. Opinions, man.

End of the day is if you like the cake from a certain shop and they are making a new cake, why not just eat it yourself instead of having others taste it and tell you what's it's like.

I'm definitely buying and playing this when it's bargain bin price. Haha but first thing first, I have to play the first game. What about you?

Thanks for the Dreamcast video I watched it and now know the issue is with how players are feeling disgusted by what Abby makes the player do. It links with the several early players who say they couldn't stand playing anymore and the Pewdiepie reaction.

I plat'ed TLOU1 which also required significant online play iirc. It was a superb game on the PS3 (iirc? lol) IIRC the Ellie flashback DLC was the absolute last thing I played on the PS3. I do want to play TLOU2 to finish the arc but like you after all these reviews I'll wait. Honestly at this point I'd rather play Days Gone first.

But right now the big stuff in the horizon are on PC. I am playing 2 Early Access games now and Cyberpunk 2077 is coming in Nov and so far everyone is saying the game is living up to the hype with the 5 hour early access special invite demo. Probably will buy a new rig with 2080GTX for Cyberpunk 2077.

I dunno about other game directors, but to me Neil Druckman is abit in love with transitioning to Hollywood or being a primary counterpoint to Hollywood of videogames being art like cinema. So does he have an agenda? Sure I believe so, esp after the attention received by the wider industry of TLOU1, what Ashley Johnson did with it in the wider Hollywood circles, the soundtrack concerts, etc. But to say that he has a liberalist agenda vis-a-vis USA politics, LGBTQ+, red vs blue, to me is all bleh.

Jim gave it a 7, maybe 7.5/10. Says he doesn't do scores but still 7.5.

Imo the conclusion is the story sucks. Tlou is one of those games that relies very heavily on its narrative. Gameplay is just generic and not the selling point of the game. It might even end up on psplus. I'm guessing death stranding too.

Well TLOU1 was late in the PS3 cycle and the PS4 Remaster was on PS Plus, so maybe TLOU2 will remaster onto PS5 and appear on PS Plus then :lol:

Sony exclusives can wait. They tend to drop in price damn fast than other non exclusives.

Seems like angryjoe don't like it either in the recent gaming news episode. Waiting for his angryreview.

Most of the negative reviews centre around how ND dealt with Joel & Abby, story pacing & length, and no innovation in the game mechanics. ACG gave it a wait for sale. Might actually sit this one out entirely. I would play it if it's about Ellie & Joel, but it seems like it deviates too much.
