@Voltan 91 is pretty darn good, so I am properly hyped. Push Square was a little more restrained in their scoring and below the average, but 8/10 is still solid.

I think @nessisonett is spot on through. These sequels that merely improve upon a prior entry are just not likely to garner 10’s and 9’s when we have other games pushing the medium more, like Baldur’s Gate and TotK. Most of the established Sony IP have fallen into this lately β€” GoW, Horizon, TLoU, GT, Ratchet & Clank, and now Spidey. (Anyone willing to bet what Ghost of Tsushima 2 will be like? πŸ˜…) Which I’m perfectly fine with, by the way. We are getting games like Returnal and Astrobot mixed in sometimes.

Interestingly 2nd party seems more progressive in its design lately. Which isn’t a terrible way to do things, I guess β€” have your 4-5 first party ringers which are the comfort food for the PlayStation fandom, and then get all experimental with 2nd party.

@Anti-Matter True, there are elements but the PS3 can have a fully animated theme running in the background and then change the backdrop to the game wallpaper if it has one or, in the cases of games like Bomberman Ultra and Gauntlet 2, the theme just keeps displaying when there is no wallpaper to display.
We need themes back - either that or retro fit the XMB back in to the PS5 front end!

Flash forward to when Ghost of Tsushima 2 is revealed to be a revolutionary blend of educational action RPG roguelike physics-based bullet hell dating sim (with optional side races).

@RogerRoger If anything, that'd be the most entertaining dating sim ever. Jin and Yuna would have very bloody dates.

@RogerRoger πŸ˜‚. I’ve been on some bad dates, but none of them would I describe as a bullet hell, gratefully.

I have, however, gone through a stretch of dating which was definitely a roguelike. Going through the same procedurally generated sequence over and over, only to be defeated and forced back to the beginning, again and again and again…. Yup. Sounds familiar.

@KilloWertz Jin and anybody would have very bloody dates, methinks!

@Th3solution Oh buddy, I was just throwing random genres into a blender for comedic purposes! I didn't intend to hit so close to home! My apologies!

@RogerRoger Very true. I just picked who it actually would have been if they finished going that route in the game.

@RogerRoger πŸ˜„ No worries. I was commenting fully tongue-in-cheek also. Besides, I was probably responsible for more broken hearts than I received. πŸ˜…

@Pizzamorg There are the following threads which are probably better suited for popping your thoughts about the game.

Although annoyingly, the hyphen has been missed out in the thread title! πŸ˜‚

Thanks for these. I will delete my post and move it into the Spider-Man thread.

Kinda wild we have a Spider-Man thread, we missed out the hyphen and it has no hype there at all. This is one of the biggest PS5 releases of the year, where you all at.

@Pizzamorg I think most of us forum lot a bit more reserved when it comes to being hyped for the latest releases, but I have seen a few posts from peeps that are hyped for the game. Just not in the named topic. πŸ˜†

And the odd occasion I've read the comments section, I've seen a fair bit of hyped for Spider-Man. But most of those members don't frequent these hallowed pages lol.

Okay, but seriously, thanks for thinking of me! It's been fun living in an "anything is possible" headspace, but it's good to get a few more details, so that I can start managing my expectations. I'd hate to dream up my perfect Bond game and then end up disappointed when I don't get it, because I'm sure whatever IOI do eventually deliver will be superb. My trust in them is pretty unshakeable.

Besides, I'm sure somebody'll mod it with a passable Roger Moore model someday. Then they could patch in a bunch of wholly inappropriate one-liners and map a dedicated "raise eyebrow" button.

@RogerRoger Is it bad that I had to look up IOI because I've never gotten into the Hitman series?

Given their history with Hitman though, I'd be shocked if their take on Bond didn't end up being really good. I'd definitely play that.

It is really weird choice from Sony that even the Disc version of the new PS5 "Slim" requires an internet connection to pair the disc drive to the console.

I am surprised because they could've paired it in the factory before putting it in the box.

I am glad that I have one of the newer models of the OG PS5

JohnnyShoulder

@Zuljaras I'm sure I heard somewhere that Sony are required by law to do it that way. I could be mistaken though!

No, I wouldn't say so. As brilliant as the Hitman games have been (and continue to be), IOI don't have quite the same name recognition as Insomniac, Bethesda, Naughty Dog, Respawn, etc. and because they've been so laser-focused on the World of Assassination trilogy for so long, it's easier to just refer to them as "the Hitman devs" when they're known for one thing and one thing only.

What is bad is that you haven't tried the Hitman series!

Only kidding, of course. It's not for everybody, and World of Assassination would be an incredibly daunting prospect for a total newcomer. I'd still highly recommend it, though!

@Ennui Always pleased to meet a fellow fan! And you're absolutely right, it's a match made in heaven. I know a lot of folks expect them to make "Hitman in a tuxedo" but I'm glad that early reports indicate something a little different. Bond might be an assassin, but he's a totally different beast, one with a much broader legacy. I mean, it's not like Agent 47 does gadget-laden car chases!

@RogerRoger It's been one of those series I've been tempted to try off and on but always gets pushed aside or forgotten with so much else to play (new and backlog). I do remember Sony offering the original in one form or another for free at one point via PS Plus, so I believe I have that one in my library.

Is there any difficulty issues with the series? I tend to stay away from anything like that as I game to have fun or know I could end up wasting hours and hours and accomplish nothing.
