    if there's one thing i'm absolutely certain, it's that games that have a solo option that just fills up with bots are absolutely miserable solo experiences

    the bots in the Avengers demo are mostly fine until you get to like, an objective. it'd be better if you could switch on the fly, I think, or at least press a button and make them stay in place or something

    who knows what the actual gameplay in suicide squad is going to be, like...if it gets more complex than "shoot these guys," it's gonna be a real fucking drag to play solo, and I don't have a whole lot of faith in rocksteady to write the sort of necessary combat dialogue for all of those characters in a way that isn't incredibly grating

    The only objective in the Avengers beta that was even a little frustrating with bots was opening the vault in the hidden mission, honestly

    Mostly it's just Destiny style "Wait here and kill three waves of enemies" shit

    Also: putting out that trailer for the Suicide Squad game after they had that intro trailer for the Suicide Squad movie did the game trailer absolutely zero favors in the character/costume design department.

    games built around co-op can be great but it's fair if that's not your bag

    catching up on the DC stuff and it is wild that between Rocksteady's last game and their Suicide Squad game, there will have been a Suicide Squad movie and then a Suicide Squad reboot

    and also the weird thing of Rocksteady is making a co-op focused DC game, only for another WB studio to make another, different co-op focused DC game that is coming out a year before Rocksteady's game

    i have really come to hate the word wholesome. it just implies a ton of nasty right-wing, uber-religious beliefs to me

    aside from the use of the word "wholesome" I don't really remember much to complain about from the last showcase

    it was pretty much a Nintendo indie direct in style and content

    honestly I wouldn't really know what other collective term to use for the games they're promoting

    It suggests that things have been going smoother for WB Montreal, as I remember a leaked screenshot of a JL/Superman game from Rocksteady ages ago that was probably scrapped.

    So that Gollum game. Am I wrong in thinking its graphics are worse than an almost 20 year old movie?

    What are the odds that Sony or MS drops a price at this thing.

    I think each is waiting for the other to blink.

    Somebody has to go first. They have interest free loans I mean preorders to collect.

    Probably! It's also by a developer who has historically made point and click adventure games with maybe several dozen people, so this is also the most technically demanding game they ever made!

    This is the thing that always gets me as someone who pre-orders basically everything.

    Why the hell are people actually putting money towards pre-orders?

    I guess for the people doing digital pre-orders they have to, but there you don't need to do so until the day before basically to start your DL and get your special things.

    But for physical things you don't get charged until the item ships at any normal location. And as this is a system it's only a physical item.. so.. bwuh?

    Sometimes I find it hard to hold onto spending money instead of using it.

    Paying for something in advance means I won’t be an impulsive idiot and spend that money on something else while I wait for it to come out.
