    [–] Microsoft Reiterates that Gears 5 Will Release in 2019 Captain_Natsu 1 points ago in xboxone

    It can be both. Botw was a Switch launch game and a Wii U game.

    [–] Microsoft Reiterates that Gears 5 Will Release in 2019 Captain_Natsu 1 points ago in xboxone

    Why? They haven't stated a release date nor have they showed off any gameplay. I think Infinite would make sense as a launch title for next gen.

    [–] Most Dissapointing game Captain_Natsu 1 points ago in xboxone

    Halo 4 was my favourite in the series. Loved the new types of enemies and the story. There was a few plot points though which are just confusing though and seemed unnecessary.

    [–] Most Dissapointing game Captain_Natsu 4 points ago in xboxone

    Sadly I think you could say most Microsoft games this gen.

    Halo 5 was my biggest disappointment. I loved the series up until then, the campaign in 5 ruined the franchise for me.

    I also found Gears 4, State of Decay 2 and See of Thieves big disappointments. I was really excited for Sal of them in the lead up to launch. Recore and Super Luckys Tale were also a letdown.

    [–] For my birthday tomorrow I'm planning to buy a elite controller Captain_Natsu 1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in xboxone

    I personally don't think they are worth the extra money. I find myself using a standard controller more often than not. I also find the additional things on the back (places for the trigger things and switch) uncomfortable.

    [–] Days Gone Expectations Captain_Natsu 5 points ago in PS4

    From what I've seen, it hasn't looked like anything special. I'm going to hold off getting it unless the reviews end up scoring it really well.

    [–] Rare is one of the best gaming developers. (thanks for listening to us) Captain_Natsu 1 points ago in Seaofthieves

    I agree with this. I felt that Rare completely ignored all the feedback they were getting in the alpha. Once the feedback started coming, they should have reassessed and looked at delaying launch/extending the alpha stage. They didn't though, in their own arrogance they ignored the feedback and released a game with barebones content for full price. It is good they started to listen but they certainly don't deserve praise in my opinion, they should have listened prior to launch.

    I disagree. They were getting the same feedback in the alpha they did after launch. If they kept the game in alpha and actually listened to the feedback they were receiving, they could have developed the game as they have done now without upsetting or turning away a large portion of their potential community.

    I'd say the big ones for me are more types of NPC enemies, a new random quest system outside of voyages and new types of trading companies/voyages.

    [–] Tales of Vesperia on the One X Captain_Natsu 3 points ago in xboxone

    Japanese games typically feel a bit lower budget than western games. I'm sure they weren't expecting high sales so had to prioritise whatever budget they have. It likely came down to spending time on enhancements that only minority of players will experience v. Spending time on those that the majority would.

    [–] Tales of Vesperia on the One X Captain_Natsu 3 points ago in xboxone

    I think it is more of a case of limited resources and the base ps4 being more powerful.

    [–] Sea of Thieves secretly showed up on many GOTY lists Captain_Natsu 8 points ago in xboxone

    The free DLC more feels like content that should have been there at launch. It took until the final update of the year for all the skeletons forts to be turned on. The game started with 1 NPC land threat and 1 NPC sea threat.

    [–] Sea of Thieves’ 2018 updates made it my most anticipated game for 2019 Captain_Natsu 4 points ago in xboxone

    I don't think they will start selling it for $10. I wouldn't suggest it is worth much more than $20 though. Gamepass is probably your best bet to play it.

    [–] Sea of Thieves’ 2018 updates made it my most anticipated game for 2019 Captain_Natsu 0 points ago in xboxone

    I think it is on the right track. By the end of 2019 it could be a really great game. I do wish they launched in early access first and waited until more content was added before calling it the full launch though. I was one of the many disappointed at launch.

    [–] Rare is one of the last good AAA developers left Captain_Natsu 1 points ago in Seaofthieves

    They said they were going to update over time. That's fine. That doesn't excuse them for launching a game in the state that they did and charging full price for it. They should have launched into early access until it was ready.

    [–] Lore and New Quest System coming to Sea of Thieves Captain_Natsu 5 points ago in xboxone

    Like encounter person x on an island who tells you that there is skeleton ship nearby who sunk him and his crew. He says if you take down the ship and take him to an outpost he will richly reward you.

    [–] Lore and New Quest System coming to Sea of Thieves Captain_Natsu 2 points ago in xboxone

    Nope, I mean running into NPCs who asks you to do a task/quest for them or finding a parchment that sets off a chain of events of quests. I guess the most similar thing in there at the moment would be the time limited quests that came with the events I.e. the one where you had to track down that lady's crew mates in forsaken shores or that guy who asked you to kill the meg. Quests like that but random and more rewarding.

    [–] Rare is one of the last good AAA developers left Captain_Natsu 2 points ago in Seaofthieves

    Why not release in early access then? It would have allowed them to develop the game with player feedback without upsetting a lot of people.

    [–] Rare is one of the last good AAA developers left Captain_Natsu 0 points ago in Seaofthieves

    It's great that they are updating the game based on feedback but let's not forget they released what felt like an early access game at launch and charged full price. That's a reasonably evil/scummy move in my mind. Its great they are updating over time but they should have launched in early access and waited until the game was ready before launching. I lost all remaining respect for Rare because of the way they handled this game.

    [–] Lore and New Quest System coming to Sea of Thieves Captain_Natsu 12 points ago in xboxone

    When did they disagree? They added NPC ships even though that wasn't in their original vision.

    [–] Lore and New Quest System coming to Sea of Thieves Captain_Natsu 10 points ago in xboxone

    Why? It's not what it is now but I think it could fit in well.

    [–] Lore and New Quest System coming to Sea of Thieves Captain_Natsu 6 points ago in xboxone

    I don't see why not. You could craft magic cannonballs, row boats and weapon skins and I think it would fit in well with the game. New content might bring more opportunities as well.
