Woooou bro… Do u speak of SM2??? If yes, cmon man, u can’t be serious about that… People waiting for years for this sequel… The return of Titus… And what I have seen so far looks very well imo… Can’t wait for that game… 2 great WH40K games… Its like we get Christmas and Easter at once
Ehm… As in, the people that still stick around in the 40K coop shooter with hordes of enemies aren’t going to go nuts for the long-awaited 40K shooter with coop already confirmed, that also happens to revolve around hordes of enemies?
Just a personal perspective here - I got nearly 800 hours in DT. I got nearly 900 in SM due to the janky PvP MP and the 8 (12?) levels of coop. If SM2 is anywhere decent, come with coop and, Emprah forbid, has PvP… DT has no chance.
Yeah yeah, DT is a tide game, yes. But that alone is not enough to equal the heaps of silly nonsense and poor delivery by FS. Tide or no tide, when faced with the sheer choice of playing the SM2 campaign again with the pals, or doing another friggin’ Hi5STG/Auric I didn’t pick… I’ma go with the SM2 campaign there…
People say that all the time.
It’s an internet thing.
“X will kill Y.”
Reality is, that most of the time X and Y co-exist, in particular because people just play both or because X and Y attract different target audiences. Sometimes communities split, but that doesn’t mean that X or Y must end, either. Just that both truck on with less community than before.
Well it looks like with cross play between PC and Xbox it means they are going to leave AI director at PC level.
I always assumed Xbox won’t have cross play and therefore AI director would be adjusted, but also aim assist, add quick 180 turn button, different acceleration curve settings etc
But the natural thing to do is to add native keyboard and mouse support, which many console games do have. i.e. Apex Legends and Warzone have this.
I wondered recently why hordes don’t feel as a threat anymore, actually not really a threat as it used to but the ranged enemies feel a bit more tuned up in damage. Almost as if adjusted for console players to play at ranged more.
Mouse and keyboard native support is the way forward.
Then there is the price. I saw in my retail store they are taking preorders of physical copies for £30 GBP (50 for imperial edition). That is going to be tough sell consider by comparison the bigger game titles recently released cost 50 in the same store like Resident Evil 4, Remnant 2, Jedi survivor, Dead Island 2.
Supposedly there isn’t much statistical difference between controller and M&K outside of the top tier of a game. Dunno how true that is, but if it is I doubt people below Auric will be able to notice the difference once the newbies have acclimatised.
