The game mechanics are beyond stale at this point.

Well the series is pretty much known for that. Are you looking for combat like Kingdom Come Deliverance?

Honestly, the only this that would help this series survive is two players Coop. Anything less just makes it boring and tiresome to play Solo.

Good, ban China outright. Get the rest of the world to join that.

this needs to go much deeper, they need to put a ban on any Chinese students coming into this country to steal education spots that should be four our kids. All they are doing, and there was a report on this. is coming here, learning and then taking it back to use against us in Cyber crimes and to keep under cutting us in all Economical and industrial areas. Plus, its also been reported that China wants to conquer the world and wants their military to be number one in the world, well that will not happen. If they ever come up against our Navy, will quickly learn why everyone fears the US Navy.

- China is building naval vessels twice as fast as the US.
- Chinese subs track US carriers within torpedo range without being detected. That was 15 years ago. Chinese capabilities have only improved while our ASW capabilities have continued to atrophy.
- America's naval vessels aren't even designed to destroy enemy surface vessels any longer. The lack of any near peer rival for the past 30 years led to designs that focused on anti-missile and anti-aircraft threats instead of anti-ship. The US is playing catch up in this regard.
- The Chinese have developed unique weapons to neutralize the US carrier advantage, like their anti-ship ballistic missiles series. How effective these are against moving ships at sea is an open question, but they have hundreds of them in mobile launchers, making them very difficult to destroy before they launch (remember how poorly the US did against mobile Scud missiles back in the 90s).
- Analyses show the China can damage or sink US ships faster than we can fix or replace them. Our ability to build or fix ships is in a very poor state, as we've failed to invest in infrastructure.
- The USN has a major readiness issue, as demonstrated by the collisions of the McCain and Fitzgerald with slow moving tankers.
- Lastly, the US has lost nearly every recent simulated war game against China.

Can the Chinese invade the US, or defeat the USN in the middle of the Pacific? No, of course not. Can they invade their neighbors, or seize control of the South China Sea preventing trillions in shipping from passing through, and prevent the USA from doing anything about it? Seems like a "yes." And each passing year, they continue to improve and match the US through both IP theft and indigenous capability. The one thing China lacks is operational experience, so look for them to gain some using smaller conflicts with their neighbors.

Our big strength is our allies, but we've been undermining that for the past few years, making it more difficult to convince allies to come together to challenge China.

Well, you are making lots of assumptions that don't pan out in a real shooting war.

First of all, we have all the sensors needed (in the air, in space, and under the ocean) to track all enemy ships and submarines wherever they go on the planet, and in a shooting war those ships will be the very first things to die.

The main A2/AD victims will be the Chinese and the Russians in the opening days of war.

Secondly, all of our carrier strike groups have the world's densest network air and missile defenses deployed anywhere. As well as the world's densest and most effective ASW assets on, under, and above the sea, 24/7/365. Nothing else, including the grossly overhyped S-400, comes remotely close to an AEGIS umbrella.

I wish I shared your confidence. Bronze age goat-herders with AK-47s fought the US military to a stalemate over the course of 20 fruitless years in Afghanistan. The RAND Corporation rates naval surface warfare near mainland China as being a Chinese advantage, and naval surface warfare farther from mainland China as being US-China parity. "China" fairly routinely kicks our ass in US military simulations of a conventional military conflict between the two powers. Meanwhile, COVID has thoroughly overwhelmed the US federal government's capacity to deal with it, while other developed nations are largely returning to normalcy. Like the hapless Federation in Verhoeven's Starship Troopers, we're collectively getting our asses kicked on all the major problems facing our society, and no amount of "USA NUMBER 1!!!" jingoism will reverse our decline in the metrics where we used to be, but are no longer, the best.

I have no idea where you are getting your dribble from, but you couldn't be further from the truth. China is a paper tiger, once they get bloodied, they will fold.

Well, this is disappointing, trying to charge full price for the game. and I'm betting those of us that own it already will not be getting any kind of loyalty discounts. I own the collectors edition already, I just cant see myself paying full price all over again for a game I already own. Now had they added Coop to this, it would be a instant sale, but!

Sorry, but this one going in the deep sale bin.

Yep, most Souls-like boss battles are bad, especially when you have to fight them exactly like the developers intended. I also hate that, for some reason not exactly clear to me, you can't jump immediately back into battle with a "retry?" option, instead wasting your time on re-spawning a way back.

The problem with a lot of these fights is that they pin you down, make it so most of the time you cant out run them or get out of the way, or your hamstring to stamina that always runs out to quickly when you are dodging or rolling out of the way.

It really makes the fights unrealistic and drags them out forever,

Souls-like - the thing that happened after MOBA was the thing.
No, thanks. I do understand that people like Dark Souls with its superdifficult fights, but when I come home from work and am allowed to play a game for an hour or two (she is cruel, isn't she? ), I need something to calm down and have some - in comparison to work - easy success. If I want to stress myself, I just have to go back to work.
Thankfully there are also enough games for people like me.

I'm glad someone else understands this. I like them too, and even beat the first Dark Souls (And Demon's Souls on PS3) but at 44, I don't get much chance to game and when I do, I like it to be relaxing and comforting. Something I can tune out the world in and play while taking sips of coffee. Silly, I know.

Had one guy say I "wasn't a real gamer" because I refused to buy Sekiro for that reason. Nevermind the fact that I was playing RPGs before he was born or that I played through two Souls games already. The idea of playing another "Die 50 times for 2 hours straight until you find the right pattern to win and then do it again" game doesn't appeal to me.


Same here, I dont mind a challenge, but when that challenge turns into a lot of work, it just takes all the fun and air out of the experience. This was a big problem with Boss fights in Remnant, from the ashes. those fight were ass stupid. But, the trainer saved the day, we did try many, many times to beat some of those bosses, but eventually we just said fuck it and used a trainer to get by those really hard fights.

Ugh, don't tell me Cyberpunk 2077 is going to try to force me to finally upgrade my desktop from Windows 8.1.

Microsoft, you have until November to add DX12 to Windows 8.1 .

Why are you using 8.1? That OS was crap, and I mean that. The OS had a really bad problem with indexing and it caused all kinds of performance issues. Thats why Microsoft moved away from it so quickly. Trust me, I was one of those who held out till the end on moving over to Win 10. but the OS has come a long way since the start, and the newer 1903 ver is very solid. You will see a drastic performance gain when you get off 8.1. trust me on that one, I'm a network Admin, that OS was pure shit.

For example...there is a penis festival in Japan. With penis shaped props and everything. But genitals are banned from porn and games.


Do you even know what that festival is all about? Its not about sex in the way you might be thinking, its about bringing luck and fertility to couples looking to have children and to promote couples to have kids.

And Im so glad they removed that bullshit wall running I hate that crap in games.

Honestly, disappointed, I was wanting to see side by side comparisons in this video. They literally blew that one.

I looked at DSO's comparisons, and it does look better, but the price point in this is going to be the deal breaker if they want to much.
