@silversix_: I played and finished Dark Souls III. It is great, and also the least interesting and safest game in the Souls line, including Bloodborne. I would have given Dark Souls III an 8, and still may if I get the time to write about it. I spent a good amount of time discussing what I loved about it--and the many problems I had with it--here. https://soundcloud.com/the1099/episode-36-the-best-and-worst-of-dark-souls-3-with-kevin-vanord-and-suriel-vazquez

I can speak for myself; I don't need you speaking on my behalf regarding what I think and why. Suffice it to say, there is only one moment in Dark Souls III I would put in my top 10 Souls moments. Dark Souls II gets its share of complaints, but it is not short on interesting ideas and concepts. Dark Souls III does not have those earth-shattering discoveries, like when you open a shortcut in Dark Souls for the first time. It does not have the fantastic level design of Sen's Fortress, or the Dark Souls II DLC. Precarious falls and ingenious traps are rare. Dark Souls III is "expected," and in a series filled with the unexpected, I was a little disappointed. I would put Dark Souls, Demon's Souls, and Bloodborne ahead of Dark Souls III in terms of total impact.

As for Quantum Break, I like it significantly less than even Peter does.

@Gbullet: I suppose I could be the first.

It's better than Dark Souls III.

I guess we got it out of the way early!

@goodgamesguy: If I recall correctly, it's coming to Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, and Vita as well.

@BassMan: Oh gosh, what a shame! It's so beautiful and fun; I hate to see you missing out. Wait--why are you missing out?

@AzatiS: The 5th and 6th paragraphs from the end go into some detail on this subject, specifically regarding the energy currency and armor variation, though there are other examples. (Such as the limited inventory space, which I mention in the closing paragraph.)

I am not back, just doing some freelance writing here and there when time allows!

@Bigyeti13: It's good! But it's really important to know what you're getting into.

@jaoman9: Yes, that seems like a reasonable reaction to a difficult situation in which a game developer was manipulated and a game backed by hundreds of interested contributors was canceled. Indeed, your personal lack of interest in the game and its genre is a good reason for business partners to squander contributions and force a developer to cancel his project.

Good call, jaoman9. Your excellent point of view shall drive games to be even better and more varied, and I look forward to the next project you celebrate being canceled because you personally didn't care about it one way or another. Your apathy will be a positive driving force, and your happiness about a game developer's misfortunes will be a boon to us all. If only we all had your mature and empathetic outlook.

@aretilda: Why yes. Making games is incredibly time-consuming, incredibly expensive, and incredibly hard.

@berserker66666 "They're all just big opinion pieces." Um...that's exactly what reviews are. You seem shocked by this discovery!
