Looks good, but also looks like it has the potential to be a little boring. We'll see.

I really hope that is not the case and that Sucker Punch did this game right!
For someone who's a huge fan of Zatoichi, Lone Wolf and Cub, Lady Snowblood, Sword of Vengeance, Harakiri and the Kurosawa Samurai movies, I'm salivating over this release.

Wow, that is fascinating. The level of research is impressive. I'm typically a button masher who sticks with the basics(or sticks with the same set of moves throughout) in games like Batman, Mordor or God of War, so hopefully this game isn't too brutal on that type of gamer.

That is NOT what that ad says. You preorder it and get 30% off “Select Current Xbox One or Playstation 4 Games”, not off your preorder.

Decker is right. At least that's how all the previous deals have gone.

Another good read on the Black & White Gameplay....Kurosawa Mode...on how they got it, references and why it's called that....

Ghost of Tsushima's Black and White Kurosawa Mode Was Approved By The Legendary Filmmaker's Estate .....https://www.psu.com/news/ghost-of-ts...makers-estate/

That's badass. I think it also solidified my playing the whole thing in Japanese.

Might have to run out and check my closest store to see if they did the same. I was planning on going digital.

For 99% of media nowadays it doesn't matter if it's on the shelf the register won't let it be sold.

That's what I was thinking. It'll probably be flagged at the register. Technology is finally getting smarter than the employees. Worth a shot though if you're gonna be out and about anyway.

I found a SNES mini a few days before launch. The register flagged it and wouldn't allow it to be sold which confounded the employee. I knew what was up right away. The employee kept trying though.

Re: Ghost of Tsushima (PS4; 7/17/20)

Kurosawa mode sounded like a great idea, but it also sounds like the execution of it needs some tweaking before it can be better. One particular thing (not specific to K-mode, but relevant) is that the Japanese language track isn't matched to the character face movement... so it's like watching a Japanese dub of an English-spoken samurai film. The English-language track is synched properly. Seems like an oversight more than a deliberate choice, so hopefully that can be fixed in a patch.

Overall though, I'll probably still get this, but might wait a few days until some personal stuff gets sorted out.

The game sounds great but I'm focused on the Infamous games. Just started 2. That game aged well. Also have Second Son to play as well.

Hollywood Reporter liked it and said it was a visual masterpiece. It truly takes advantage of HDR displays.

Gamespot gave it a 7. Just looked at the score didn’t read the review.
