    I don't think the review scores are hard to get at all. People expect to be held by the hand and push the awesome button for 50 hours while watching the newest Netflix series on their 2nd monitor.

    I've no doubt that Elex has made a lot of concessions to new design sensibilities, but it's never enough for these people - if the game doesn't constantly positively reinforce their Pavlovian rodent prefrontal cortex with cheap stimuli, it's shit 3/10.

    Note that this isn't a defense of Elex at all - it might be shit for all I know; but this is a pattern that repeats itself. People don't want to play games that challenge them anymore, in any way.

    Also, Grimoire is fucking great.

    This video was most shocking thing I've ever watched about gaming. When I was playing R3 I thought this game is retarded... beceause it hadn't got ANY difficulty. If I din't know who he was, I'd think he is mentally retarded.
    I farmed entire islands with basic equipment, I spammed to death everything. It was one of the easiest games I've ever played.

    Also, kinda obvious from reviews so far, that these reviewers are the types that think Mass Effect series has challenging combat and AMAZING game world with best leveling up system ever created (you know, how series progressed and it became simpler and simpler to accommodate every retard playing ME). These retards make up the audience for people like Jim Sterling, demanding lower difficulty in games like Cuphead as well.

    Most of us who are waiting for this game haven't even started posting reviews on places like Steam and Metacritic as well. You will see the REAL changes in scores after we are all done playing.

    Of course. "Challenging" means "really easy but with just the right illusion that my superpower handsome but also brooding loner popular with the ladies' penis beam may not destroy all the enemies at once", while "stupid hard" is any kind of difficulty that makes them stop pressing buttons for a moment and think. What they really want is for every game to give them the same masturbatory curve.

    Just wanted to do a quick re-post of something I posted in July for any newcomers to this thread. This consideration is a part of why I was able to look at ELEX with fresh eyes. Just feel it's relevant when people use R2 and R3 as absolute examples of why PB is beyond redemption.

    So, this is the third game I preordered (other are Witcher 2 and 3), and it's all because of you. If it sucks you owe me.

    If it sucks, then you're getting a free blowjob from a GOTY called ELEX.

    You should be happy, 2 for 1 deal here.

    Even if yes, waiting for this game was more exciting then Orcs from the Box, or Wicher3. For me of course.
