I’m not sure anyone is surprised. I’ll get it eventually.

I’ve lost most my faith in this game and the folks making it. That goes for the franchise in the post Bungie era.

As for this game specifically, think about it—how long will it take to get the stuff we all expect at launch? Forge and coop campaign? How many delays?…

Bugsnax... weird game, not good weird. Not a kids game. Presented like a kids game.

In reality this is a pretty big win. Not sure why one would downplay it. 60 > 30 for action games.

Edit—Too bad it’s for less than half a dozen games to start. Wish they’d been working on this already, maybe release like 30 big name game updates at once, especially from the same developer.

Does it do anything special? I watched that video expecting something to differentiate it, and you could have put nearly any wireless headset into that trailer without needing to change the highlights. No spatial audio, no broad sound stage, etc...

I’d think we all at some point have exploited a glitch or cheesed a boss somewhere in history. I remember how I beat the main boss in KOTOR 2, or that dragon on the bridge in the original dark souls. One arrow at a time...

Recently, the references to Alan Wake and the Poets of the Fall song in Control. Historically, I always loved the Marathon stuff Bungie included in Halo.

Probably whatever Sony gives away for PS+ in March. I think we find out Wednesday afternoon?

PS5 enhanced Division 2 and Control, along with some Starcraft 2.

I wish Division 2 added adaptive trigger support, makes a big difference.

@eoten: We all have our personal preference. I’d rather play Borderlands 3 or COD Cold War on PS5 because of the adaptive triggers. Both are multiplats, BTW. It’s going to be easier to make good use of adaptive triggers and haptics than the touchpad or the motion controls. We already see the evidence at the onset of the console gen in multi platform games.

Edit: Control is also awesome after the PS5 update, utilizing the adaptive triggers and new haptics. So we have plenty of evidence that those features will be something we see a lot and not rare.
