We’re kind of divided on The Division at the following link.
It’s been a week and while I said I would wait on playing The Division until the community had spoken, I broke down and redbox’d the thing on Friday night. My will is weak, folks. However, I’m still not certain on how I feel about the game. Is it the lack of anything new to play? Is it the 8 or 10 other people on my friends list playing the game any time I log in? I can’t put my finger on it, but I keep finding myself playing this game that I can’t walk away with a straight opinion on. It doesn’t feel like a good game, but I keep going back in. I don’t like the shooting, but I keep going back in. There are some good aspects of the game and what it’s doing, but it doesn’t feel like it would be enough to make me purchase any other game doing that and ONLY getting that part right. It’s very strange and I’m completely torn on it, but I went and bought it anyway. If anything it’ll hold me over until Quantum Break and Uncharted 4.
We also talk about E3 again, too. I need to write about that at some point. Maybe if I can awkwardly pull myself away from a game that doesn’t feel great but I keep playing it – I can get around to that. This is weird.
