    [–] Sea of Thieves Developer Update: October 17th, 2018 Captain_Natsu -1 points ago in Seaofthieves

    I really dislike the fact there are time limited cosmetics. I'm happy for it to be linked and easier to obtain during an event but I would prefer them to throw it into the world after that. Make there be a rare random NPC you can encounter who sells a handful of old time limited cosmetics.

    [–] Thank you, dev team. Captain_Natsu 2 points ago in Seaofthieves

    I like that there is a stream of updates and I think the game has improved since launch. I still think they need to work on new enemy types and things to do other than voyages (random side quests/events).

    [–] Xbox: X0 event will have new reveals and special guests! Captain_Natsu 0 points ago in xboxone

    I think Platinum is a possibility. I believe they were struggling financially before Nier Automata.

    [–] Considering getting the game. What’s the current state of the game? What are you favorite and least favorite elements of the game? Captain_Natsu 2 points ago in Seaofthieves

    What I like:

    • social interactions with crew (best played with friends)

    • Basic mechanics of the game are fun

    • i love the visual style of the game

    • Sailing the sea and digging up treasure is fun

    What I dislike:

    • Game is very repetitive. There are only 3 different voyage types to do. Only one is fun in my opinion.

    • Game feels very empty. Still feels like early access.

    Overall

    If it looks like a game that interests you, give it a go on Game Pass first. In my opinion it isn't worth a full game price tag at the moment. It might in 6-12 months though.

    [–] Just came back after long break, where do I begin ?! Captain_Natsu 1 points ago in Seaofthieves

    Some cosmetics are time limited (which I dislike). The updates have added a giant shark, a skeleton pirate ship to fight (appears like a fort, unfortunately they don't randomly roam the seas), a three man ship and a new volcanic region along with a few other minor things.

    If you stopped playing because you wanted the game to feel more complete, I'd suggest waiting another 6-12 months.

    [–] Suggestion: Add Merrick as a Cargo Trader! Captain_Natsu 18 points ago in Seaofthieves

    I'd prefer if Merrick devoted his life to tracking down megs and offering sailors money to hunt them down for him. Basically become a random NPC you can encounter on islands.

    [–] What would motivate you to buy the next generation Xbox ? Captain_Natsu -1 points ago in xboxone

    I agree that they haven't had a 10/10 game, at least not the exclusives I've played. They have had a few that have come close for me though, maybe 9.5/10 or 9/10. That is roughly what the metacritic scores have ended up at as well. I'm not sure how any of this is relevant though to the last time Xbox had a good exclusive phase.

    [–] What would motivate you to buy the next generation Xbox ? Captain_Natsu 1 points ago in xboxone

    I'd argue though that Xbox hasn't had a good exclusive phase since early 360 era.

    [–] Halo Infinite won't be at XO18 343's Community Manager says Captain_Natsu 8 points ago in xboxone

    I'm assuming it will be both. I think they will likely release next gen with the new Halo.

    [–] Halo Infinite won't be at XO18 343's Community Manager says Captain_Natsu 28 points ago in xboxone

    I assume it will be a next gen launch title. Definitely a good way to start off a new generation.

    [–] Microsoft Finalizing deal to buy Obsidian Entertainment Captain_Natsu 5 points ago in Games

    Mojang?

    I don't think it is fair to bring up old purchases like Rare as it happened so long ago, the culture and management team at Microsoft has changed dramatically since then. Recently it seems that their 1st party are allowed to do what they want.

    [–] Enjoying the game after hiatus Captain_Natsu 4 points ago in Seaofthieves

    I don't see why they can't be both, just at different times. I'm not saying reward every meg kill, im saying let there be random Merrick encounters where he asks us to hunt a meg for him. I don't see how that will take away from the experience. It just means that occasionally that instead of megs being an obstacle as you stated, they will be something we have to hunt down.

    [–] Enjoying the game after hiatus Captain_Natsu 3 points ago in Seaofthieves

    I don't see how adding random quests to addition to voyages is constituting a change to the core game. We already have non-voyage quests but they are time limited, not random and there is only one on at a time. In the first instance I think they could remix old weekly events as random quests. Let us come across Merrick again on a random island who offers us gold to take down a nearby meg. Let us find a drunken bilge rat on the shore who offers us gold if we can shoot ourselves onto the throne on the island.

    I stopped playing for a few months but I was still following the news. The content they added has improved things a bit but I still feel like they aren't addressing my fundamental issues with the game. It is still too repetitive. They need to remove focus in voyages and instead add some random quests/encounters in my opinion.

    They haven't discussed new enemies as far as I am aware but I completely agree they should. I hope they introduce new region specific enemies e.g. lava/earth creatures for devils roar, ghosts or zombies for The Wilds, giant skellies for ancient isles and a new race of sea creatures for The Shores of Plenty.

    [–] Anyone else mad that square is making ANOTHER kingdom hearts collection for ps4 but yet there is no sign whatsoever of the collections coming to Xbox one Captain_Natsu 5 points ago in xboxone

    I partly agree with you but I don't think Square should have to spend money trying to gain a new audience when they don't think it is financially viable to do so. If they don't think say DQ11 would sell well on Xbox then they shouldn't be expected to make it.

    If MS wants to make Xbox a better console for their customers and potentially increase Xbox market share by getting more Japanese games on the console, then it is reasonable they may have to offer an incentive to do so.

    You assume that square has to grow the pie. I dont think that has to be their focus, particularly if it will result in extra expenditure on marketing that will outweigh any gains in sales. Their target market overwhelmingly owns a PS4. That is where they are going to make money. They do have some audience that only owns an Xbox but evidently they don't think it is very big and it isn't financially beneficial to try and increase that market.

    No because they are just rebundling two existing games in a new convenient package. That sounds much easier and more reasonable than trying to port of the roughly 6 games included in the bundles to a platform which has a history of poor sales of Japanese games.
