It's kinda telling when the biggest improvement in a new edition of game is the fast forward button.

To call monster hunter 'clunky' in the first place is to completely misunderstand the point. The gameplay at this point is quite well honed after so many games. If you want seamless combos, try the dual blades or longsword.

Is this sponsored? Street fighter PC is pretty dead, Tekken's the only thing with a playerbase on PC right now

It's nice that you had this written in advance but there's nothing compelling in this year's sale.Reply

There hasn't been since they took out flash sales and daily deals, those made the sale good.

Is a slot machine not gambling if it awards you at least a penny sweet with every roll?

The story mode teaches you nothing. And it's awful, to boot.
The value proposition with no teaching resources in tekken is poor, which is why the game did badly.Reply

Ah yes, is that why it sold over 2 million copies since release?

I just got back. Were you on the scene? Fun event, but I wish they'd had more seating so half the attendants didn't have to miss talks.

Videogames’ portrayal of the Holocaust does a disservice to both players and victimsVideogames’ portrayal of the Holocaust does a disservice to both players and victims

Paragraph beginning "In 2017, Nazism is once again on the rise, hiding under the guise of the ‘Alt-Right’. " wherein you decry anyone espousing certain values as literal hateful nazis.


Alt-right is just a catch term for the younger generation who haven't particularly interacted with any traditional conservative movements, but still see the horrors in the #KillAllMen sorts, the "Rape claims are true by default" sorts, the devastation inflicted on European cities by floods of unhandled migrants, and the damage done to defenceless children encouraged to discard their gender identity to undergo irreversable hormone treatments and surgery. We're not nazis. We're not hateful. But we aren't going to just sit and watch this happen.

I...er...wow.


Kid, I hate to be the one to break this to you but describing immigrants as "floods", blaming them for "devastation" of European cities and invoking "defenceless children" in disagreement with LGBT rights are all neo-Nazi talking points.


You're a Nazi, son.

If I wanted Kotaku UK, I'd go to Kotaku UK. If we're going to bring twitter-tier political discourse to PCGamesN, can we at least skip the "Everyone with different opinions is a Nazi" phase? It isn't even particularly relevant to the article, but you felt the need to namecall anyway.Reply

well said. I've complained about it as well in previous articles and it really is frustrating for it to appear in my RSS feeds with no ability to filter it out since the site doesn't have categories like most every other blog.

This will be out of date by the time your audience gets to play the game.Reply

That's probably not true; power levels are unlikely to change until the first DLC, which isn't due until December - well after the PC launch. Obviously we'll update this once Raid and Trials gear starts dropping, but that won't affect the earlier stages of progression.


Edit: turns out it hasn't affected any stage of progression, because raid set gear is no stronger than Powerful Gear. You can get to the 305 cap through weekly Milestones alone.
