More likely it's due to the backlash recently.I originally typed something out about that, but I've only ever seen the backlash directed towards the Blizzard side.
Or they are separating the brand from Activision's scandals that included driving a woman to suicide.I'd agree with almost everything Xev said. As a person who prioritized story and put gameplay secondary, xev's last comment about pacing hurt me a lot more though.
Who to believe?!
Hades has good gameplay but the second you stop loving it, the game falls apart. Story progress needs to be grinded by doing runs over and over and some runs you will get nothing. I view it as a 7/10 but I am not at all against others giving it a 10/10.
