I certainly didn't see this one coming. Will be interesting to see how it performs.

Great game, hope it does well on the Switch.

I already bought this game for PS4 and Xbox One. AND I bought it again for a random person on Facebook who was curious about the game. Will I buy it again?

Nope.

This is yet another example of the problem caused by Switch versions releasing after the others.  



My interest in this one is somewhat tempered by reports of its severe difficulty. I don't like hard games.

Still, very interested from an academic POV to see how it turns out in the technical stakes, could be a real showcase for what the Switch is capable of.



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

It's not difficult at all... That's a spoiler.

Hmmmm... I am tempted. The combat looks good and I like the mental illness angle and the celtic/norse influences. If it's a competent port maybe I will pick it up after all. I'll wait for DF though to make sure it's not overly compromised.

I couldn't finish it on the PS4, top notch graphics, but the combat is so bad. Really put me off.

Its actually quite easy once you get the hang of it, the combat is amazing, but its the sound that knocks this game out of the park. Its got this new 3d sound ( with headphones on). One time a female voice screamed out loud  about 1-2 metres behind me, i shit myself and turned round to bollock my wife and no one was there. Heartbrate was skyhigh lol. The sound is that good you tell how far away a character is, which direction etc....



Game deserves to do well on the Switch (if it's a good port) but it's not really replayable and it will be the worst version. Portability will be a plus but I guess I'll have to sit this one out. Still hope to see it do well since I've always loved Ninja Theory.

Yeah, I beat it not long ago on the PS4. Decent game, but a bit repetitive.
