The game doesn't seem to be very good...

It is completely fine. Nothing super big, but nothing bad too. It avoids the glitches many Ubisoft games have. And the planet traversal, fighting and exploring works pretty well. It's a solid games at mid-level, like say warriors (Meta is also similar to Warriors games). The bad sales are undeserved.

Starlink-numbers make me sad, with the PS4 and XBOX version not even charting. It was a solid game and i hope the team can get another chance at something similar but maybe without the toy-gimmick which i think hurt it

Indeed the toy to life thing may have hurt it. Although you can completely play through without anything extra.

I wish though, they would handle it more in-game in future. I think you could your in-game currency electrum (which you start to amass anyways without a real way to spend it all) to temporarily unlock stuff, which you would permanently unlock with the toy or the digital DLC. This would give a good in-game mechanic and still something to sell the toy or DLC for.

This is the type of week that makes me sad with games I don't like getting the top and with much much much more sales than the ones I like. But that is part of the industry and keep up the high HW numbers and opportunities for other games.

Yeah, well people like different things, and if you are different to the masses, you might see yourself in a minority in purchasing patterns. But I accepted my otherness years ago, and now feel empowered to not be like others. Even if it for something as simple as taste in gaming.

Yep, I accepted it some time ago as well. The only sadness is that because of it there isn't more fund and games that is tailored to my taste. But considering how many great games are made that fit my taste I can't really complain.

I was sad a while back, because classic point-and-click adventures were kinda disappeared, and classic turn-based or pause-based western RPGs were kinda dead as well. The situation has become much more satisfying with the recent indie uptick. So yes, I can't complain either.

Full Throttle remaster made me very happy, and FF IX and VII even the low level ps4 version were pleasant as well.

If I were Namco, I'd be porting Dark Souls 2 to Switch as we speak. (Or more specifically, getting Virtuos to do it)

next week will be fun to watch.

Indeed it will; can't wait to see the Wii hit up the charts one last time with Just Dance 2019! :P



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
