The graphics complaints I've seen seem to be about the surprisingly bland style and surprising frame-rate issues, given the bland style.

However, I've seen just as many complaints about gameplay.  And more than one article mentioned a lack of charm and missing the point of Megaman entirely.

Last nights episode  eek

That was awesome from beginning to end.  Some of the best dragon effects I've seen in any media ever.  And then that war battle, wow.

I might have said it before, but I have to wonder how George RR Martin feels these days.  On the one hand it must be incredibly exciting to see such awesome content come to life.  But on the other I can't imagine how bittersweet it is to have all these massive plot points and reveals he's held in his pocket for over 20 years being revealed by someone else.  I really thought that alone would have motivated him to get his ass in gear and finish, but at this point he might as well just take his time and finish the series in 2030 lol.

Well, since this is out this week I figured I would bump this thread back up so discussion could move out of the "What are you buying" thread.

It seems like reviews are not being kind at all, frequently criticizing the art style and graphics.

I'm curious about Mighty No. 9, but I don't know if I'm curious enough to buy it.  If the reviews are stellar, that could change.


And stellar they are not.  Sheesh.  Reviews are hovering in the 50% range.

Wow.  That is both amazing and shocking given how anticipated this game has been.  Graphics that are retro, but not up to the last game in the MM series, and worst of all, a gameplay mechanic that is both imprecise and used to justify some tricky jumps. 

I find it odd that there are so many complaints about the graphics and art style.  I thought they looked pretty good from the videos I've seen; exactly what I would expect.

punisher, that idea always scares me. Only time I ever do a clean install is when something breaks icon_biggrin  Or this last time when I actually built my own rig. That was fun! Until the MOBO drivers that came on the DVD from ASUS were corrupted and loaded then turned off all of my USB's. Considering my keyboard and mouse are USB it took me a while to figure out how to get back in to fix it.
It can definitely be scary if you are not used to it. I've been in IT for over 20 years so it's old hat now, but I can definitely see a difference in performance. I know some people that will do a nice clean install, update Windows and all drivers, then make an image of the PC if they need a clean install later on..
If you make sure to download and save the network card and video card drivers prior to the clean install it helps a lot. With those 2 you can get online and download other things you need and also look online for help.

Worse still, his car was recently included in a recall for this very thing:

http://jalopnik.com/fiat-chrysler-is-recalling-1-1-million-cars-because-peo-1772561060#_ga=1.253950336.901381851.1379512541

The voluntary recall was made as the shifter led to 41 confirmed injuries. 

Quote
THE CONTACT OWNS A 2015 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE. WHILE THE ELECTRONIC SHIFTER WAS IN PARK, THE VEHICLE INDEPENDENTLY MOVED BACKWARDS AND STRUCK ANOTHER VEHICLE. THERE WERE NO INJURIES AND A POLICE REPORT WAS NOT FILED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE MECHANIC WHO STATED THAT THE REAR PASSENGER SIDE BUMPER WAS DAMAGED AND NEEDED TO BE REPAIRED.

Quote
THE JEEP’S ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSION DID NOT FULLY SHIFT IN TO THE “PARK” POSITION WHILE STILL RUNNING. MY WIFE EXITED THE VEHICLE TO TAKE OUR 3 YEAR OLD FROM THE BACK SEAT AND THE JEEP BEGAN TO ROLL AWAY. SHE RAN AND JUMPED IN TO THE DRIVER’S SEAT TO STOP IT AND IN THE PROCESS HER FOOT SLIPPED FROM THE BRAKE TO THE GAS PEDAL DRIVING THE CAR INTO/THROUGH A HOUSE. SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE WAS DONE TO THE VEHICLE AND THE HOME BUT NO ONE WAS INJURED.

From another news item on Yelchin
Quote
Yelchin, 27, died in an unusual and horrifying incident early Sunday morning when his SUV—a Jeep Grand Cherokee—was left in neutral and apparently rolled down his driveway when he was outside of it, crushing him into a mailbox.

It's sad that the car was recalled and that Anton wasn't aware of the risk posed by the design when he drove it.

Pac-Man 256 is great on a phone.  I'm not sure it'll be nearly as interesting on a console.

My thoughts as well.

I'm getting MXGP 2 on the Xbox One. 

I also have the Fallout 4 season pass so I get the useless Contraptions garbage.

And I'm curious about Mighty Number 9, but I am definitely waiting on reviews and impressions (and by the sound of things, not getting it at all).
