Preordered but going to play this on Saturday anyway at EGX. Arkham combat in an open world and enemies that react back to your actions is awesome sounding to me.

Epic trailer plus super positive reviews and mentions of something being truly next-gen not because of some E3 demo but an actual, finalized game? HELL YES.

But also mentioned in the early reviews: very repetitive missions, the likes of 'go there, kill that boss, rinse and repeat'.
I'm waiting for that 1 next-gen open world game, where missions are memorable like in more linear games. I don't see why that is something devs are having so much problems with. It's like all time is spent on creating the open world, and missions are thrown in at the end of development. GTA tries it's best at doing that. But still doesn't get there.

It's simple, that level of "uniqueness", custom crafted missions from more linear games are precisely that, custom crafted by teams. To have that in a big open world game would mean hundreds (if not thousands) of people working on building each quest and subquest by hand, every single time. It's just not feasible anytime soon.

The lead character though could have been better, otherwise game looks epic

Thats pretty much what 99% of the videos they kept releasing contained of and i didnt see any variety in both environment nor missions, hence i dont understand the hype for it at all.

You mean you dont like the generic fantasy character were the main character has decent long hair and a boring stubble, and has the vibe of "aragorn" just because? lol

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @droezelke: Yep, absolutely no reason for me at all to get one right now. I'm good with Zelda on Wii U. If Mario had been a launch title though....... lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker this year because this was clearly going to be Sony's year, but then MS announced Scorpio and Mario Odyssey was announced. But next year should be fine, no big purchases planned, haha. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I told myself when PS4 had just released that I was gonna get one when Uncharted 4 came out, but when it came out I borrowed my brother's PS4 and finished it. So I was then planning on getting one (1 Hour ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: For Mario you have time until September. :-) (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I realize I'm going to need a PS4 for that and the plan is to get one next year. Just can't be this year with Scorpio, a new TV and probably a Switch for Mario too, lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker A JRPG like Ni No Kuni 2, Tales of series, Star Ocean even though the latest is bad. Not just JRPG either, games like Nioh, Nier etc (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @asdfg: Nah not those turn based JRPGs. Combat needs to be real time for me in any RPG. I just can't get into turn based battles. (1 Hour ago)
