Tired of theses useless/pointless discutions too.
In short: 9/10
Even if I did buy it now, I already have a few games going at the same time. Plus a big backlog of games I have, but not played. And a few more that I still need to pick up. Basically, i'm holding off for the time being.
I woukld love it if IO's series just focused on the post fleming novels we all know we will never get them in film form I would actually be thrilled if we got the games like this
Carte Blanche 2022
Colonel Sun 2024
Liscence Renewed 2026
I might play the new hitman games as well but lately have been playing all of the james bond games going in order as I build up to Project 007
and also am I the only one who hopes that isnt a working title I kind of like that as the actual title of the game
I haven't thought of that yet, but for an origin story Project 007 could actually work! I am quite sure they won't do it, but the idea is pretty good.
Again, the old rights question. I never understood how this works, exactly. But IOI got their licence from Danjaq, not from Ian Fleming Publishing. So I would assume, any connection to be to the films rather than the books.
Hitman 3's launch has been an absolute disaster. Overloaded servers are one thing and almost expected at this point for online games, but we're going on nearly three days of people simply being unable to play at all. Most users, especially those on PS4/PS5, are unable to play the game at all simply because it won't connect their profile (myself included). The issue has been acknowledged by IOI and they are apparently working on a fix, but the performance is unacceptable. There is no point in playing "offline" because of the challenges and mastery so it's a very bare bones experience.
Hopefully Project 007 does not come with this online nonsense.
That was quite the quick turnaround for you, guess it paid for me to avoid this day one launch, as I feared would be the case. Sounds like they had issues with implementing things that they should've done months ago but waited until the last second when there was confusion and frustration going on.
The fact that they still run this game "online" at all times is laughable, as it doesn't even curb cheaters or hackers for the most part.
Really sorry to hear about your experience with the game. In a lot of ways I hate what the internet has done to gaming.
I long for the days when you could buy a SNES cartridge, shove it in the console and enjoy the full experience offline with absolute immediacy.
The whole industry seems to think that graphics / refresh rate / map size are what makes good and memorable gaming experiences, but some of my best memories have a lot more to do with story, characters, and visual styles that have nothing really to do with how many pixels are on the screen.
Me talking about vidja games back in my day:
Yes. It ruined the Halo franchise, which was brilliant for the first 3 or so.
I accepted it with Hitman 2, since it had an online portion, but the others? No.
Nice. Don't know much about that system specifically, but very much familiar with the sentiment. I think Super Mario RPG for SNES is still my favourite video game of all time.
It was a cheaper, less powerful option to the Mega Drive. But being 6 or 7, and never had a console before, it’s power or lack thereof, wasn’t a concern. The Master System was an 8 bit console, while the Mega Drive was 16 bit. I had the mk 2 Master System, same power as the original one, but with a curvier facelift.
I would probably still stand by my defense of the gameplay, and indeed the consensus among those who have been able to play it is "best of the trilogy" and tons of compliments aimed at the story which is a first for Hitman in my experience.
Unfortunately, you were absolutely right to avoid it. I just really wanted to support IOI this time around considering I got the first two games for next to nothing and can appreciate a small developer. I'd even forgive some downtime on the server due to their limited means. What happened here though is beyond unacceptable though. It took them two days to even acknowledge the issue and many are already scrambling for a refund.
I don't even mind the online features, but there's no reason the game(s) shouldn't be fully playable offline and then just have the progression and leaderboards sync later on if desired.
The whole concept of forcing gamers to do everything online can just get in the bin. It rarely works, and now, even when I do buy the disc, I still have to upload it to my console which takes the best part of a day.
I sincerely hope Project 007 sticks to the old methods of game play.
(This practice of online needed in a offline game is shamefull knowing that one day or an other the server of the game will be shut down and features will be unaviable).
If you aren't online, the game isn't recording your progress, i.e. Level Mastery and ranking up, challenge unlocks, challenge progress in general, etc., which is essentially the entirety of the game, unless you're planning to just casually play levels without any progress made.
I think the assumption is just that everyone is always online 100% of the time. I have a phobia of needing to rely on a strong internet connection for anything. That's why if they put NTTD on streaming, I'd hope there would be an option to download and watch offline (but I guess there probably wouldn't be).
If this kind of "planned obsolescence" is part of 007 Project, I hope pirate/cracked copy of the game will be helpfull to save/preserve the solo part of the game the day that features will disappear when the servers will be shut down by IO (like 20 years after his release) :(
Now, I am not acting as if everything is fine here. The launch apparently didn't work and that is on them and they should do better. And sure, you may tlnit be interested in any of the things I just mentioned and you can always say "I just want to play the game", but this is isn't a developer being lazy or deceitful or a money-grab. They are attempting a massive swing with this infrastructure.
However, the Deluxe Edition of Hitman 3 cost me $95 here in Canada. It has been out for nearly five days and I still can't play it. I do hope that for Project 007, which will likely have an even bigger audience, that this is a learning experience and the entire game is playable offline. I'm fine with leaderboards, progress tracking, etc... but that should be independently synced to the online profile.
Yeah, I might have bit a little too optimist.
