So ZombiU seems so hot right now, consumers are queueing up out the door to get a piece of what is surely to be one of the biggest selling Wii U launch games. Are you guys interested in picking up a copy? Are you waiting on reviews? Please discuss the game below and feel free to post any media you may find.
@Jargon The circus is similar, but the events there don't depend on time in the same way the chopper hovering around, burning fuel does. A timer could have worked, but I think what they did makes more thematic sense, if that makes any sense. I mean, there's no reason for the chopper to wait around for X amount of minutes even after the one survivor they know of has bitten the dust.
Do you mean the possibility of people being unhappy 'cause they died due to the one chance thing? I think that's part of the beauty of it, that they did finish the game, it's just that it ended with their death.
I was just saying that if they did it my way, there'd still be the possibility of a sad conclusion that you wanted, the player giving up.
Anyway, I understand what they were doing. Unfortunately it had the opposite effect on me that it had on you. I'm not too interested in playing through it again knowing that hours of work could be lost on a single stupid slip up again.
@Jargon Well, in my mind having the player give up is not quite the same thing as being defeated, but fair enough. It's too bad that you got turned off by the ending, but if it makes you feel better, the different endings aren't very different at all, so you didn't miss much.
EDIT: Crap, I guess you did since you didn't get to see the prepper scene.
@Infinitywave Yeah, I think they nailed that aspect of the game. You invest so much effort and perhaps even a degree of affection for your character that it's hard to have them die on you. Losing your skills and stuff isn't making it easier.
All kinds of people wouldn't want to sacrifice their pick for that type of thing -AND- I can see people trying to juggle it, and then pooping out halfway through because they wanna start/finish Resident Evil 7 instead. Its gotta be a 2-week nightly commitment type of thing, divided 14 ways or something.
EDIT- OR, we could do both! October is a ways off.. I actually just finished mine back in October.
Just bought this game yesterday from BestBuy.com for $7.99! I haven't picked up from the store yet, and probably won't get a chance to play it until next weekend, but I figured what a great game to play for Shocktoberfest!
