@cyloninside I suggest you read up on Warhammer, then come back to me and tell me Blizzard has never been in the business of rehashing things.
Live up to the hype? What hype? The game was literally just announced. There was nothing to be hyped for.
So excited for this game. Loved the first one was expecting good things, but the reception this game has already received is awesome. Hopefully this moves a few more Wii Us and encourages current owners who might not have been interested beforehand to pick it up.As someone who is primarily a PC gamer, I've been surprised to find myself using my Wii U more than any other system. It's got far more games than its competitors, and the games it does get are guaranteed to be exclusive and range from pretty good to amazing. Compare that to my PS4 and Xbox One which are collecting dust and mostly share each other's libraries (and why get a game for console when I can run it infinitely better on my PC).
Great review. The analogy I've been using is that Destiny is like a new building. The architects have made it look fantastic on the outside, and structurally it's very impressive. But once you get inside, you find that all the rooms are either empty or sparsely furnished. The game has a solid foundation in terms of mechanics, but that's about all it has going for it.
@dribblesbarbax Gamespot fired a lot of their staff about a month ago, so they don't have many reviewers anymore.
@abcdefgabcdefgz The thing WoW has over every other MMO I've played is responsiveness. Character movement and ability usage is so smooth. I enjoy stuff like GW2, FFXIV, etc., but compared to WoW they feel a bit clunky/unpolished.
Never really understood the hatred of WoW's graphics. It doesn't look wonderful, but it's gotten its share of visual overhauls over the years. Plus, compare it to games from its time period that adopted a more realistic style of graphics. Everquest 2 looks like complete crap nowadays, whereas WoW's graphics have longevity. It's the advantage of going for something more cartoonish/stylized as opposed to trying for realism.
My girlfriend is an active subscriber and from what she's heard they're going to be doing a big number squish this expansion, that way people won't be running around with a million health.
@diggyphelps An attempt at triggering WC3 and early WoW nostalgia to bring in former subs, yeah. While the nods in the cinematic were nice, it didn't capture me the same way some of the previous ones did. Hell, I wasn't a fan of Deathwing (his raid was god awful), but the cinematic introducing him was fantastic and really captured the nature of what was going on.
At this point, I'm more interested in the world - that is, just seeing what Draenor looked like before it shattered - than the lore. Chris Metzen has absolutely annihilated anything good about WoW lore because of his jerk-off hard-on for comic stereotypes aka super awesome heroes and big bad villains who want to destroy the world and take over everything.
I was really disappointed with this cinematic. I wasn't a fan of how silly the MoP one was, but this one is just straight up disappointing. It kind of feels like it was trying to mimic the tight knit story nature of the WotLK cinematic, but nobody gives a damn about Garrosh compared to Arthas. They should have gone for a more epic scale akin to the Cataclysm cinematic, showing the Iron Horde or whatever it's called preparing itself all across Draenor with various orc warleaders.
Realistically, I think 8/10 is a very fair score for the game. I can understand people's frustration with it, though, given the slew of 9's that review sites like to throw around for AAA games.I enjoyed this game, but I didn't think it was, "the best game ever!" like so many people were saying. The story was laughably predictable, as was each character's evolution. Joel and Ellie's interactions were still very enjoyable, but it's not exactly like their character development was very unique. Overall the gameplay was pretty solid, but the AI would often take all the tension out of a moment. Nothing like having Ellie or Bill stomping stomping around in a room full of Clickers and repeatedly bumping into them.
