Nathan Drake has been my favorite character for the past two generations. So, I’ll politely disagree.

@Yams1980: looks like you didn’t read the article at all. They were “rushed” because they floundered for 4.5 years with not much to show. All of the developers did care, they just weren’t given a chance or directed in a any fashion. EA didn’t give a hard deadline until it was shown BioWare was in no way going to get anything done without a little pressure. Teams work together all the time, this is software development, it’s rare for one team to do everything on big AAA games (not AAA in quality but in hype, expectation, marketing).

If you had read the article it points the blame primarily at BioWare and it’s crazy development mentality and garbage management.

I think of them the same way I do about real sports. Tons of fun to play and boring as hell to watch. No thanks.

@jackamomo: you didn’t watch the stream or read the specs. It’s not a local box or GPU. Nothing is rendered locally, nothing is done locally besides control input.

The platform is the server farms. Everything is done on the data center side and then streamed to whatever device you are using.

The difference in games is still up in the air but getting Doom Eternal right off the bat is a good start.

I’m personally skeptical on latency issues, price, and whether Google will stick with it long term.

I played from day one all the way up through Legion. There are so many QoL fixes people are forgetting about that it’s going to be comical to hear the complaining the first week.

Popcorn ready!

It’s a solid game. It’s also launched in the perfect storm with Anthem being hated by practically all media outlets.

-runs great

-tons of loot

-worthwhile progression

-fleshed out end game

-QoL improvements over first add up

-the world is incredibly detailed

The only negative is a lackluster story and I’ll be nit picky about absolutely trash guns that are useless.

It really doesn’t affect me. The PS4 games given have been pretty solid over the last 2 years though so I’m happy.

Games suffer when the hardware is split like this, I hope it’s not the case.
