Finally some in depth gameplay!  Looks good.  Don't think it will set the world on fire - but I think they went the right route by making it free on PS Plus for February and March to build up the fanbase.

Reminder that if you do not have a PS5 yet you can still add the free PS5 games to your library via the PlayStation store for when you do get one.



I had high hopes for this game.



Looks fun! The framerate looks crisp as well. I wonder how Sony will price it once it is no longer available on PS Plus? Also will it be available physically in stores. Sony was charging the regular $69.99 MSRP before the delay.

I still have no idea if I'll like this game, but seeing how it won't cost me anything to try I'm looking forward to finding out.

I was totally on board until 'two types of currency'. No thanks. I avoid games with microtransactions like the plague. I only suffered through Red Dead Online because I wanted the platinum.

Are cosmetics that inherently important to you ?

I don't think it's so much about the importance of the content, but the practice itself...

not at all! But I grew up in a world where games rewarded you for playing by giving you skins and stuff, not for opening your wallet. I refuse to support games that have microtransactions in them unless the extra content is, you know extra content. something like paying 1.99 for a Rock Band song is good because it's more content. Paying x dollars to look prettier is dumb.

Sure, I didn't consider that when I posted my message. I wasn't trying to be snarky or anything.

Yeah, so if it's the practice itself you don't favour then that is fair. I think it's a little extreme considering unlocking content is not that different to it being a reward (play 100 matches or use the coins you earn from 100 matches to get the item), but it would be unfair of me to judge you on that matter.
