Mate got sent a copy by some Swedish guy he plays R6 with. Got to play it for a few hours today. 

 

As dull as neon dish water. Visuals on point. Gameplay and everything else of substance not so much.

 

It'll probably end up a metacritic 99 though.

 

 

 

Who needs metacritic? Your thorough review after a few hours of play was really on point.

This is why I'm holding off until the reviews come through now. If they have an embargo on until the day before release it means they are not confident in their product so rather wait and get a balanced view of the game and performance on various platforms.

 

I know it's only £40-50 but want to know that what I'm buying will give me a good experience and not be a broken buggy mess that will need to have multiple patches to fix it. Rather wait and have a better experience. Not as if I haven't got much to play whilst I wait :D

So not as good as Skyrim then. :coffee:

Going to be interesting to see what the world makes of this game when it releases in a week from now. Hope it's great although think the expectation will far exceed what gets delivered given this thread started 7 years ago now.

 

I'll enjoy watching, reading the reviews next Friday. :D

 

Edit : Sorry this thread started 8.5 years ago!!! This has dragged nearly or longer than The Last Guardian!

Which platform? If PS4/5 or XO/XSX can you ask him if there is a 60 FPS mode please.

 

Cheers!

Stupid question I guess.... I can only preload on Series X if I have preordered it on the store right?

 

So If I have a physical preorder I'll just have to wait?

Yep. The disk is essentially the DRM key and it will end up downloading it all anyway when you pop it in. Although not sure if it still does this on the Xbox One ... Looks like there is a 43GB patch already on day one :) Jeez. Never sure why people buy physical disks these days... Sure you can sell them on but still.....

That's the thing, this combination has never been done before. A single player-like multi branching story in a sandbox environment in an open world is simply unprecedented. You can say it combines styles of games but there is nothing like it. Comparisons with the modern Deus Ex games are simply out of place because they are both very limited in comparison. If I would compare its design approach I would go with the original Deus Ex, in the sense that, for its time, Spector's game also brought a new way of storytelling in sandbox design. But direct comparisons with other games, no, I do not think they exist.

I’m pretty sure you’re positioning yourself for disappointment here.


single player, sandbox, open world games are ten a penny.

more than one storyline is also ten a penny: there are lots of ways storylines can mildly branch, and do, based on player actions.

 

the combination of the two, unless amazingly well executed (and there’s no evidence that it will be), isn’t going to be revolutionary. You don’t need to get quite so hyped.

 

(it’s not like it’s deus ex, released at a time where there was PC game legend being released after PC game legend: just look at what was released in 1999-2001!)

God can you imagine of this actually ends up being shit; the fireworks would be immense - the over-invested nutcases Vs the backlashers.

 

You'll get the same result if it's just a pretty good game, so you're in luck!

No, they are not. You are talking about drivel like the late Assassin's Creed games. Pure RPGs make meaningful changes and provide alternative ways to play and experience the story. CDPR is quite unique at that, choosing to go for quality and not quantity (like BioWare has done in its late years unfortunately). Combining all these to a sandbox design and open world with multiple hand crafted side quests has simply never be done before. I don't know if they will be able to pull it off, I just hope they will.

 

Also, your last comment about Deus Ex, I am not sure what you mean. Have you seen what games we have had this generation which, imo, is arguably the best we have ever had in the industry?

Skyrim was technically last gen.
