Re: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 10/27/17

t-minus 18 hours or so. no reviews yet, but that's ok. the other didn't get totally great reviews (low 80's) and i loved it...

Sounds good. Will be interesting to see how well it's handled on the Switch.

Sounds great. I thought The New Order was great, but never completed The Old Blood. Wondering if I should do that before diving into this one.

Old Blood was equally great. short (could probably complete in a few hours), but great. i think it was a prequel, so not necessary for continuity (mostly precursor to how The New Order began and how BJ got plans to find secret Nazi lair in TNO), but great addition to an already great game...

Re: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 10/27/17

it's gonna be hard not to play this this weekend when i have it. i want to finish Destiny 2. i think i am almost done. just finished a couple tough missions on Nessus. level 17, power 170ish, so i figure almost there, right?

but, i might just have to do what many of you already do, play multiple games at the same time. go back and forth. they are both digital so so easy, just don't like to juggle or not finish what i started...

I am getting this AND Assassin's Creed at the same time. Now that will be a real dilemma, but I'm going to just have to figure it out...

I'm definitely holding off on AC and going for Wolfenstein tomorrow instead, as Ubisoft games are notoriously buggy on release date and require copious patches to fix bugs, and I'm hearing this one's pretty buggy. They also drop in price pretty quickly.

This. Remember Unity? It was unplayable upon release. And I don't think there's been a single Assassin's Creed game since II that hasn't been $20 by Black Friday.

Re: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 10/27/17

reviews keep going up. 90 on metacritic. 88% for PS4 version on gamerankings. little lower for One. why does PS4 usually get more reviews and better reviews than One? can't wait to dl tomorrow morning. def. getting the season pass with those 3 DLC's. those sound great too. hope they are SP missions...

Played this for just over an hour last night. Pretty good so far! Not much else to say yet.

Yeah, Amazon delivered mine early as well. It's basically the first game but awesomer.

Re: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 10/27/17

Just checking a few game sites with review scores up....

Gaminformer......9.75
http://www.gameinformer.com/games/wo...evolution.aspx

Gamespot......9
https://www.gamespot.com/reviews/wol.../1900-6416796/

Dual Shockers......9.5
https://www.dualshockers.com/wolfens...-2-review-ps4/

I already have plenty to do and play....Warframe, Diablo III, Neverwinter with Star Wars Battlefront II coming up which I already have PO. I played the first going in not knowing what to expect and it was cool twist on history and just a blast. I've got a gift card to BB so I might be jumping in again....

Re: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 10/27/17

People are already finishing up the game - reports are at around 10 to 11 hours, and that's from people taking their time and dying a lot.


And here's some info regarding CD keys and DLC...

Dang, that's a little discouraging to hear. I'm going to pick a harder difficulty I guess.

That completely fine for this type of game. No issues with that at all on my end.
