Dark Souls 2 is the most innovative in the series with bonfire ascetics, power stancing, polished covenants, etc. The build, armor, and weapon variety is unmatched, and it had the only half-tolerable, balanced PvP. I would've thought PC Games was ever so slightly above keeping up the bandwagon hate, but I suppose not.

To be fair, I do say it "possibly doesn't get the love it should". Happy to give you the points you make, especially since they don't conflict with the few points of criticism I suggest, which are mainly concerned with the story.

Urgh I just exploded from how right you are. Same with The Last of Us (I acknowledge this is a divisive opinion, however correct).

I was just like, 'Uncharted has a good story? It was garbage. Gameplay sandbox was amazing though. These guys are just wrong!' Then I figured out I was confusing Uncharted with Just Cause...

I'm still a belieVR, just about. Though everyone agrees that the market right now isn't viable, we're certain of at least one more 'wave' of developments, maybe more. And no-one can be certain that the next wave isn't the one where VR attains critical mass.

I'm not a believer. I've been gaming for a long time, longer than any editor at pcgamesn and as an old-timer I have seen what worked for gamers and what didn't and after a while you get a good sense of what the majority wants and VR isn't one of them, it doesn't have long term mass appeal for a few reasons.

There are microtransactions for cosmetics, but that's it, and the cosmetics can be earned through gameplay too.


It looks like all the new playable content will be free (I've added a small update on this, thanks for the question!)

This sounds like the GW2 business-model. Psyched if so!

That trailer was the best Daft Punk video I've seen in a while. Back to steam, search, added to wish list. Thanks man!

That would be the Thousand Sunny, the Strawhat Pirate's ship from One Piece, not Kon on the side of a building.

Pretty sure that's him at 11 seconds, not as a character, but as a face on... whatever that building is.

Okay, now I really need to play 1 & 2. Sadly didn't encounter the series until Bioshock Infinite, which is an excellent game.
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

Oh cool, you're in for a treat! It's been surpassed, but BioShock 1 is still one of the best shooters ever.
