When the reviews and 'lets play' videos hit, I was turned off by it. Now after watching IGN's coop play of it, I was sold.
But... when it gets cheaper. Not spending 60 bucks on a movie (which isn't a bad thing). However I'm so into couch cooping this with my brother so we can laugh at our choices as one or the other entity.
I say 'isn't a bad thing' because I think reviewers have been overly harsh for what this game was. We bark about wanting new things. Or try new things. And when a triple A studio does something new, we destroy it. When an indie does something new, we praise it. I bet if this was an indie title it would be GOTY.
I understand everyone has their opinion. As I'd hope people understood I have an opinion with my reviews. However I can't help but wonder if the reviewers as a whole are destroying triple A studios with more scrutiny than what indies get. And we wonder why companies are going mobile.
Thanks for the review Lauren.
Definitely have some good points in there. I kind of look at the price of these sort of titles two ways... I mean one, $60 for a game is expensive. I know it's been like that forever, but really.. it's not a cheap hobby, so you really need to pick and choose... but then again, I love Quantic Dream... and I want them to keep succeeding and keep bringing in these fantastic actors... Indie games have got it really good at the moment, esp with things like Humble Bundle... unfortunately though, QD probably does need the money in order to keep the level of graphics/talent/so on.. Really hard.
