Ah, the likes of IGN.

I see :)

I will wait for some proper reviews, after release. Fool me once and all that.

OC has 115+ reviews, metacritic 50 ish.


If you're gonna talk shit at least be real.
And don't forget it was CDPR that BANNED reviewers from talking about technical bugs - not the case here.

Here's IGNs cyberpunk review:

Nah, gaming websites sold out not long after the likes of Edge. Waste of time even reading their reviews these days.

Please stop pre-ordering stuff! Have you not learned?

Publishers hype the crap out of stuff, with full support of the usual reviewers, then release unfinished, bugged rubbish.

I'm not saying this will be bad, who knows, but how many AAA titles in the last few years have looked amazing and turned out absolute turd? You are encouraging it!

I've got Hideo Kojima on the line, wanting to discuss Death Standing.

Edit, which wasn't particularly bugged, just terribad.

Edit, edit, especially when you can download the game in an hour or so. You gain nothing from paying up front.

Maybe you should've checked IGN?

The point flew gracefully over your head.

Just because it's made by someone that previously released exceptional content (Hi Witcher series vs Cyberpunk, and welcome MGS vs Death Stranding) does not mean it will be any good. It's all about publishing deadlines.

Edit, and like I say, this game might be great, but we won't find out until actual people, not reviewers worried about future review copies, get their hands on it. Especially when we are talking about £50 a go.

I think you're missing the point

Demon souls - 2009, dark souls, dark souls 2, dark souls 3, bloodborne, sekiro.

All 10/10 outstanding games. even DS2 was was considered weaker on launch got reworked , pc version even got upgraded from dx9 to dx11 w/ the rework patch and is considered as good/better than ds1/3 now.
no MTX, and all DLC was solid and a good addition to the games.


Contrast to CDPR - witcher 2 had severe issues at launch with critical bugs that they fixed over months of patches.
witcher 3 had some horrific issues at launch and took months to patch
Cyberpunk was the same, if you got taken by the marketing hype ( they spent $100mill on the game and 200m+ on marketing ) then that's on you.

To reiterate, you're a mug if you pre-order anything these days. :)

That wasn't your first point though was it? Your first point was OMG GAME REVIEWERS?

Also I got the game for £30 about 3 months ago, vs £50 today soooo ?

Same thing, you're pre-ordering based on well engineered hype. There is no reason to.

Loving it so far, bought it on PS5 - bloody fantastic game.. they've taken everything great in previous soulsborne titles and stuck it into one incredible love child.

I wasn't sure how I felt ~5-10 hours in, but 15hours+ in, best souls game so far.

I like to think that George R R Martin contributed to all the notes left on the ground. Finger but hole, Liar ahead etc.

What a piece of shit enemy spam the game is though. Why would you ever fight skeletons that shoot lasers out of their eyes, like three of them and instead just ride through?! That's like the case with the late game - high level enemy spam. This used to be a boss, now lets place five of them for you to fight.
