TR gets better... But yes, some of its QTEs are quite bad and honestly the scripted/setpieces, with some exceptions, are just downright annoying and poorly executed. Specially when you have to time jumps on falling bridges/buildings, ugh... some of the destruction is so poorly designed that even though you're supposedly in control of the character you still have to hit certain buttons at the exact moments or you'll fall to your death and repeat the whole thing
I'm going to throw the controller through the wall if it's that bad. During the escape and the guy grabs the leg, I failed at least 4 times before the Boulder crushed lara. First was from not knowing which button would pop up. The other times I hit triangle but apparently too slowly the window of being able to press it was short. Last time i was just spamming triangle.

Ok so recently Eurogamer did a preview of Just Cause 3 and I couldn't help but notice this image with this sentence attached to it...
Spoiler for Image:
<img src="http://images.eurogamer.net/2013/articles/1/7/3/6/7/2/7/just-cause-3s-new-brand-of-chaos-and-its-asynchronous-multiplayer-142383304228.jpg/EG11/resize/600x-1/quality/80/format/jpg" alt="" class="bbc_img">


It says "Just Cause 3 doesn't currently look quite this pretty. It's a robust playground that doesn't break, and the polish will likely be the last thing to be added - though as it's due out this year, it's hardly still early days."

So why the heck are they releasing screenshots like that then? And then when the game doesn't manage to hit that level of graphical fidelity once it releases people complain how it was downgraded. Why do developers do this to themselves?



I can answer for that!

It's because games need to be marketed months in advance, heck even years in advance! There are two solutions to this.

One is vertical game development. You take just one part of the game, and then fully finish that part. Then you essentially have a demo area that's fully finished and can be shown off. Bioshock infinite is well known for doing this. Same with Aliens Colonial Marines. The alternative is cgi and flat out faking it, like Just Cause is with that screen shot.

Neither is perfect, and both have good chances of over promising on the game.

i honestly have no idea. i dont get it. RaD played it right. they showed the graphics at the stage they were at (which were great). but then kept on improving and improving, people got impressed every time gameplay footage released for that game.

What's wrong with rounding up? And who gives a shame about February? Worst day of the year (coming Saturday) is in February. And I don't say that bitterly. Last year I had a five course meal at a five star restaurant. It's just a stupid day.

Rayman Legends people! I might get it.
if you have young ones that you play with sometimes then I'd get it. I had a blast with my two nephews who visited last year from California
