Hey, we're afraid GOW Ascension won't sell extremely well so we'll just slap on this "TLOU early access demo" so that sales will be increased. The thing we haven't told the consumer, though, is that the demo activates may 31st, only two weeks before the game releases.


Pretty much this.

 

Not that anything could make me buy a rather expensive coffee coaster known as GOW.

 

They need to stick the demo on the store. Nothing worse than losing sales because people wanted to try before they buy.

 

Also it's a new IP it needs all the help it can get.

They probably will, after the game comes out, unless it's a multiplayer demo.

Yeah. lol. I enjoyed the bit that I did play of GoW - The MP frustrated me though.

 

I did however buy it solely for TLoU (and I ain't even sorry)

Game doesn't suck Studio. Just a tired re-hash in my opinion. I've played all three and the psp games and that was enough for me. The game still has good production value, good graphics and it's all round fun blood-bath.  

 

Once I beat the third though, I let Kratos' story end.


Joel: That's alright. I believe him.

You're right, the game doesn't suck.

 


When I played the demo I enjoyed it, but it felt like DLC rather than a new game.

 

Like you said, it should have died at GoW3. That game had such good pacing!:smileyhappy:

I'll tell you what, ND may be playing a marketing strategy with the extended story trailer, but all I thought was: I have no intention or desire to play this soap opera bullshmeaer.   Waaa, waaa, waaaa.




The Biggest Lies

5.) The hats aren't the surprise.
4.) Mods knows what they're doing.
3.) It doesn't fit the world paradigm.
2.) I'm not in it for the money.
1.) The player pool will be consolidated.

So... you don't want to play the game? But, you come here to this forum to tell us about it. Makes sense. Thanks for dropping in Scoot.  

 

Unless there's some kind of sarcasm that's flying over my head.
