No one really knows what Hellblade 2 even is at this point. But I just know that Ninja Theory is a rare studio that literally has experience making cinematic action games for years, including DmC which is really on par with any of the previous God of War games. The first Hellblade is their only indie game, with limited budget. Now they have been purchased, so we really don't know what they're planning for the game. I just know we saw a teaser that looks more graphically advanced than anything we've seen on Xbox yet. If they wanted, they could easily make something that's comparable by just making it more of an action game than the first Hellblade. We'll just have to wait and see, but it's really not that difficult to see the comparison. Both are even viking inspired games.This board has gotten so disingenuous and so tiresome.
I'm not sure on what planet Hellblade, an extremely mediocre game with good visuals for the size of the team that made it (it got ported to Switch for crying out loud), is now considered on par with GoW 2018. Now that MS has bought the team, they are world beaters up there with the best? Like I say over and over. Results matter. These studios do not have the results yet.
Both of you guys are acting like you're full of it, and your defensiveness around Xbox when you bash on anything PS related is old.
In terms of the recycling issue ....
Mega Man 1-6 on NES say hello. And I know there are countless others starting from that point on.
I mean the big game for Xbox this year is Halo Infinite, where a bunch of the shown enemies seem to look and behave exactly the same as a team from 20 years ago. But for some reason the same group of people who are so livid over GoW think that Halo has game of the year potential.
Nothing to see here.
It's pretty clear that a lot of the most vocal members of this board don't want to actually discuss games because they like them. They want to play some weird form of corporate fanboy sports. Because in sports to win, the other guy has to lose, even though that's not what is happening here. All of the big platform providers can "win." Yes there will be a ranking, and it probably won't be changing any time soon. Get over it if you don't like it.
If you're into this crap, have fun y'all.
