Ditto. I just got a PS3 (used from a friend of mah boyfriend), and unless I win the lottery or something also amazing, I don't see myself getting a PS4 for a couple years. That being said, I'm willing to change my standards if the right game comes along. :P

If Last Guardian and FF Versus come out on the PS4 instead, then does that mean they're gonna release a bunch of shitty looking PS3 games on the PS4? 
Title: Re: Playstation Meeting, Feb. 20th
Post by: Yggdrasil on February 07, 2013, 01:01:03 AM
At least for now is safe to assume that Dark Souls II and Versus XIII are gonna be released on PS3 next year. The Last Guardian can go either way if is released on PS3 or 4 really...

There's also 'Project Zwei' from Tango Gameworks that is supposed to come out at the end of this year for Xbox 360 and PS3, but platforms hasn't been officially announced so far.

Oh and Persona 5. Is not crazy to think that is gonna be "revealed" at TGS or Famitsu and drops on the PS3 with the PS4 released, it can totally happen and can't imagine many people getting mad at that.

Wasn't the Wii U labeled as the place to look foward to a lot of big Japanese games or something along those lines?

I'm in the same boat. But I'm looking forward to see the news that come out of this.

Controller leaked (http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/02/14/is-this-playstation-4s-controller).  Though it's just a prototype, so it might different from the final version.

Still, Sony can't keep anything secret.

Doesn't look a whole lot different than the dualshock. I honestly don't think they need to ever change the controller. It's always been my favorite since the PS1, but as long as it's not a boomerang I think we'll be ok lol.
Title: Re: Playstation Meeting, Feb. 20th
Post by: Kevadu on February 14, 2013, 05:50:08 PM
My biggest beef with the Dualshock design is the convex tops to the analog sticks which result in much finger-slipping.  It looks like they're finally addressing that with the design, so I'm happy.

I know a lot of people are whining about the touchpad, but I could see that being pretty useful for non-gaming (and even some gaming tasks).  It's just like the trackpad on a laptop.  You could use it to control the pointer in the web browser (which I'm sure the PS4 will have) a lot better than with an analog stick.  Or, dare I say it, actually have a RTS game that doesn't suck on a console.

Though this is Sony so I'm sure they'll do something stupid and gimmicky with it...

The twist is that the Boomerang was actually the best PS1 non-analog controller. You people ruined everything!

(Well ok the D-Pad, buttons, and analog clearly needed tweaking even if the basic shape stayed the same. Too spaced out and the analogs too tiny.)

Doesn't look that bad to me. Apart from the glowy thing which looks tacked on.

I think the touchpad is a good idea, it doesn't look intrusive and I can see it having its uses.

Following rumors of new consoles is so goddamn boring IMO... but anyway, The Last Guardian stuff.

Fumito Ueda's message (http://www.fumi.to/)

To All Interested Parties:

"As some of you may have heard, I left Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio some time ago to pursue my creative passions. Nevertheless, I continue working on The Last Guardian as a freelance contributor.

While it’s been a long time coming, The Last Guardian remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team.

I should also mention that details regarding The Last Guardian‘s release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement.

Moving forward, it is my intent to continue my involvement with The Last Guardian project, as well as pursue new creative projects with a fresh perspective. As I rekindle my passions as a creator, I look forward to seeing where it will take me, and I deeply appreciate your support during this transition."

― Fumito Ueda


The Last Guardian moved to PS4, says former Sony employee (http://gematsu.com/2013/02/the-last-guardian-moved-to-ps4-says-former-sony-employee) -- Source: Gematsu

"Kenny Linder, a former employee of shuttered Sony UK studio Bigbig, has said that The Last Guardian, originally announced for PlayStation 3, is now a PlayStation 4 title.

"It's PS4," he said on NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=47670232&postcount=249). "It's been PS4 for a long time now."

Asked if it was planned for launch or launch window, he said, "I don't know, but I know it's been in development on Orbis for a long time now.

"Its platform has been questionable for nearly two years, but the last time it was restarted (it's been restarted a number of times), it was moved to Orbis [the codename for PlayStation 4]."

Sony gave me (and a lot of other people) $10 (well, PS Store credit) for being a loyal customer.  I have no idea what the qualifications for being a loyal customer are, but you guys ought to check.

Word of warning, though: the message does not show up on the Vita.  I tried checking there first because I didn't feel like firing up my PS3, but there was nothing.  What the derp, Sony.

I don't care about social features, but I doubt they're mandatory.  And there actually is some stuff in there that looks pretty cool.  I could see myself actually using some of the spectator features.

Instant game trials (play as it's downloading) is pure win.  Suspend mode is something I've been wanting on a console for a long time (obviously handhelds do it).  The background downloading stuff isn't sexy, but it does sound useful.

Hardware specs sound great, and they're showing tons of games.  Thus far I'm actually pretty impressed.  Sony hasn't fucked this one up.

Edit: Oh yeah, actually building remote play into the system and enabling it for all games by default is awesome news.  The promise of streaming to any device is also pretty damn cool, but it sounds like that might still be a ways off.

Seriously though, there was.

Far too many vague promises about how great it is and not nearly concrete information or views of games for me.

The highlight of the night was Squeenix's troll......"We have an announcement - Not about Versus!"

Jesus what a waste of time that was. They would have been better served to ride the hype and speculation train so they'd actually have a REAL reveal at E3. I mean, if the CEO and the physical console couldn't even make an appearance, what the hell does that give you? We got to stare at a controller we've all seen leaked shots of for weeks... yay. If they don't manage to nail a sweet spot on the price point, they're screwed. Durango is coming, as is the Steam Box and Apple will probably enter the home console market via Apple TV sooner rather than later, plus we have the Ouya too. The field is going to be super crowded and Sony doesn't have the brand loyalty it commanded with the PS and PS2 anymore. Let's see if they manage to flub yet another console launch... third times the charm.

I'd love a 4k monitor, but for a TV it's useless without content made for it. And that probably won't be coming from games this generation.

Anyways I think we have to wait and see more details, and what the Durango pulls to get a clearer picture. The Ouya's a bit of a mystery, I'm seriously doubting Apple would do anything more than what the Roku does for Apple TV as gaming was more of a surprise to profit off of more than anything else, and I could easily see the Durango crashing if they go for always online and anti-used IF the PS4 isn't doing either. Though maybe high end consoles are just screwed period too.

Doesn't block used games, by implication may not be requiring online all the time, and may be more powerful than the next Xbox. If all that pans out (as do the Xbox rumors) and the price isn't unreasonable, it'd be an easy winner for me.

While I wasn't thrilled by any of the games today (other than InFamous, because I love Infamous), the hardware itself looked solid. Sony's been taking an "everything and the kitchen sink" approach to control methods, and it's one that I think works fantastically with Vita. If the price is right, this could be the only console I'm interested in.

I have become one with PC.

There'll always be console exclusives that rope me in. Thing is, those can plausibly be mainly on Nintendo's systems versus Playstation/Xbox, though WAY more will be on Playstation than Xbox. Another reason I may just blow off Xbox for next gen, PS4 + Wii U + Handhelds + new PC part way through the gen = almost all the games I'd want.

... Though that's quite a few platforms. I'd probably be waiting on the PS4 too even if the price was good, not unless that Deep Down game turned to be mind blowing.

Got to say, now that I've gotten a better look at it I'm liking the new controller.  It's not a big departure, but it does look like there are a number of basic ergonomic improvements over the DS3.  In addition to the sticks and the triggers, the handles look much improved.  Check out the grippy material on them:

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2013/02/dualshock4003.jpg)

Will I actually use the move functionality or touch pad?  Who knows...but as long as they're optional that's fine.  Nothing wrong with having options.

Yeah, the DS3 just blindly (Because it was a late, uhh, undesign?) turned the back buttons into triggers, even though they weren't suited for this at all, but this looks to subtly tweak them to actually be serviceable, they're subtly concave rather than convex.

Given the superstition surrounding the number 4 in Japan, I'm surprised they called it the PS4.

I thought the presentation was alright.  Some of the games looked good.  Killzone, Watch Dogs.  Some others.  Definitely not Square-Enix.  Now that they have new, more powerful hardware to use, I wouldn't be surprised if they announce a FF7 remake for the PS4.  Might have been waiting for stronger hardware to try it.  Given their love of remakes and the potential for it sell well/move new hardware, it just feels likely to me.

And a lot of superfluous social features that make me sad for single player games.

Yeah, wasn't a huge selling point for me.  I have no plans to integrate any bookfaces with my PS4.  My real life friends don't need to know that I just unlocked the Master Alchemist title in Ni no Kuni or I recently played Tales of Xillia.

I don't care about social features, but I doubt they're mandatory.  And there actually is some stuff in there that looks pretty cool.  I could see myself actually using some of the spectator features.

Yeah, this could be a really cool feature.  I'm sure it'll be used like an integrated Let's Play for various youtube personalities, but in full quality on your TV.  Also can see services popping up where people pay better gamers to unlock trophies/unlockables or boost their rank.

yeah they pretty much read my mind about what i was hoping for out of the next controller. the ridges on the analog sticks will be so nice when my fingers are sweaty, also they rounded over the shoulder leading to the triggers. the indent on the ds3 i find annoying. i'm pretty ambivalent about the touch pad and share button but soon as i see a practical use i'll likely be sold on it. motion control = meh.

i didn't care about not seeing the console shape itself cause really it's gonna sit behind my tv anyhow. i'm glad the didn't go down the no used games path or the always online path either. i missed the beginning so i didn't hear anything  about gaikai streams or anything. i was worried about rumors that said "most online services were to be part of a subscription model similar to xbla gold" via kotaku. i hope it retains that free online model of ps3 with subs for streams or whatever else cause, at the moment i could care less about ps plus. however, if the streams work well, that added to plus would maybe the bump in value need for me to care about it. we'll see at e3 i guess.

for the most part i'm rather hopeful still. nothing has quite put off it yet, so there's that.

Question.

As hardware gets more powerful, there's greater pressure on developers to fully utilize that hardware. However, to do this, the number of manhours spent on a given project is going to increase.

We are, as far as I know, at the point where a single failed project can destroy a company. Even one that had been doing well previously. And we're close to the point where a project that isn't a failure but still grosses lower than expected can do the same. Essentially I think that hardware is driving up development costs, to the point where developers can't really keep up, and the cost of taking risks is... no longer worth the risk taking.

So what's the tipping point? Are we going to start seeing 70 dollar games this generation?

Or are we going to see a situation where lower-budget, less ornate titles start dominating the market, just by the merit of actually getting released in a timely fashion, rendering the extra hardware oomph irrelevant?

I'm seeing a lot of nerdrage out there based on some badly misinterpreted statements about digital games on the PS4.  People are upset the fact that PS3 PSN games they've purchased won't be available on the PS4, seemingly oblivious to the fact that this is because the PS4 doesn't play PS3 games.  They're completely different system architectures, and they've already said that there isn't backwards compatibility.  Digital downloads don't magically avoid that problem...

Sony has said that they're 'working on' emulation systems, probably starting with PSOne Classics, hopefully joined by PS2 Classics eventually.  But much like the Vita it doesn't sound like it will be there at launch.  Emulation of PS3 games probably isn't possible on the PS4 (the PS3 system architecture is really hard to emulate and the PS4 probably isn't even powerful enough to do it...), so that's where the Gaikai streaming thing is necessary.  Though it sounds like that too won't be there at launch.  Even if it is, I'm not sold on the whole thing based on the bandwidth necessary...

It's not exactly happy news, but it annoys me when people are getting upset over the wrong thing.  It's a backwards compatibility problem, not Sony trying to make you rebuy things you've already purchased.  It sounds like at launch you won't be able to buy them at all...

Does Sony still have their draconian policies about games having to be pretty enough to sell or were those dropped after the PSX?

If BC were simple I imagine it'd be very likely they'd do it, just to increase the PS4's value and keep people confident in their downloaded content. But they went with a fairly pricey, complicated, ultimately dead end technology (or at least one Sony, IBM, and Toshiba don't seem to want to invest more into) that they HOPED could be kept for the future but competition and increasing development demands made impractical. The best we can hope for is getting the PS3 cheap and kept in supply for as long as is practical. Maybe repurpose it in marketing into a cheap blu-ray player if they must, that might actually work longer than PS2 as a DVD player.

Besides, they already pulled that once back when they first launched the darn thing.

Which begs the question of what kind of appliance are they going to use this time around to convince people to put $400-500 down on a gaming console instead of just getting said appliance?

Admittedly those actually did seem to have an effect on EA, so maybe they did have a point arguing that the likes of BofA would brush it off and thus it's a waste to go after them, even if by all other metrics they're inarguably worse.

True, but not buying products from a company doesn't mean you voted for them in that poll. I don't buy Chick-Fil-A because I don't support them, but I'm not about to go and report them to the BBB as an affront to business.

I'm not even referring to their business practices-- someone could really just take issue with their games and how they make them now. I could see that being a totally viable reason.

There wasn't a general PS3 price drop.  The price of the 12GB was cut in Europe (where it had been around for a while) and the system was introduced in North America for $199.  But other PS3s have stayed the same price.

Still, the 12GB makes a lot more sense than similar offerings from MS, mainly because Sony uses standard HDs.  That means a HD replacement for the PS3 is much cheaper and available in pretty much whatever size you want.

Goodbye tri-Ace... we were lovers once.

Terribly bland conference so far.  Bunch of crappy vita titles (some good, many anime games though) and new news on old news (GT6, Knack).  Oh and Final Fantasy X "Please be Excited Edition".

Best Part so Far:  The translators.  Their monotone delivery and (what sounds like) 0% interest in games is great to listen to. x)

"Sony is preparing PlayStation Vita TV, a new, lightweight TV game console, for Japanese consumers."

"The system will allow users to play PS Vita and PSP games on the TV, as well as access video and network services like Tsutaya TV or Hulu.

PS Vita TV also works as a companion device for PlayStation 4. Users can take a PS Vita TV into one room, and have a PS Vita in another room or place remote play to the PS Vita TV."

Pretty much.  Just a little device with Vita hardware inside that hooks up to your TV.  They said it plays Vita games, PSP games, and PS1 games...which shouldn't be surprising since that's what an actual Vita plays.  They were also advertising some video streaming services for it that might actually be a new thing, but I'm not entirely sure what Japan has now.

Not totally sure what they're going to do about games that use touch, though.

Weirdly enough they tried to bill it as a 'companion' to a PS4...seems like just another console to me.  On top of that they were using a Dualshock 3 with it.  Why wouldn't they make it use the Dualshock 4 considering how close to release the PS4 is?

The price wasn't bad, though.  About $100.  If you don't have a Vita and want to play Vita games on your TV, well it's kind of hard to pass up.  Of course this was a Japan conference so they didn't say anything about releasing it elsewhere.

Thanks. :D

Yeah, touch-screen will be weird, and I also wonder what they will do with the gyroscope features. I can't really imagine games like Gravity Daze working that well, even though I guess the Dualshock 3 does have motion sensing anyway. I guess some people wanted something like this, but I would rather play my games on hand-helds (in bed) than play on my TV anyway.

I still don't really understand the remote play aspect they were discussing in the linked article. Is there any additional benefit this provides, or will it be straight up required for the feature to work? The wording seems a bit strange.

Overall, not many interesting games from that conference, but some neat hardware stuff, I guess. Hopefulle TGS will deliver some more new stuff (or you know, some long-awaited seemingly forgotten old stuff)
Japanese ps4 date was pretty sad, but pretty much expected at this point.
Title: Re: Playstation Meeting, Feb. 20th
Post by: Kevadu on September 09, 2013, 04:32:32 AM
I guess the point of the remote play thing was that if you have two TVs and one PS4 you can remote play PS4 games on the other TV with a Vita TV thingy instead of having to get a second PS4.  But it seems like a pretty specialized use to me and I can't imagine that the remote play experience is going to be exactly the same as playing it natively.  I don't know how many people are going to get this thing just for that...

As far as the Japanese PS4 launch date goes, it's not that bad.  About 3 months after here.  And it is true that the software lineup (that appeals to Japan) really wasn't there for the PS4 yet.  If they launched it this year I doubt it would sell that well...

So, deep down looks more interesting that I thought it would be. Capcom said a while ago that they were gonna show more at TGS so that's cool.

The Evil Within looks beautiful though. :) Been waiting for so long for a new Survival Horror from Japan that it can be said is gonna be a big deal for the genre, I can't wait.

Also is said that TEW is gonna the last project Shinji Mikami is gonna take as Director and if that's true then this will mark the end of an era to say the least.

Hopefulle TGS will deliver some more new stuff (or you know, some long-awaited seemingly forgotten old stuff)

I lost of count of the amount of people in the chat crying for The Last Guardian.

Yeah, what was "the news we've been waiting for"?  After watching the whole conference I have no idea...

I guess the most surprising thing was certainly the Vita TV.  But how many people were waiting for that?  More like it came out of nowhere...

Let's see, stuff that interested me:
I agree Deep Down looked unexpectedly good.
The new Suda51 game looks interesting.  But then I always think Suda51 games look interesting and then don't buy them in the end because the gameplay never lives up to their ambitions...
Yakuza Restoration is an odd departure for the series, but it does look cool.  I might import it since Sega seems to have given up on the series in the west.
Even though it's was just namedropped and not even shown I know I'm probably going to end up getting Idolmaster for PS4...

But mostly that was an incredibly dry conference.

Hm. I can't really see myself wanting to remote play to another TV for ps4 play. Thanks to the suspend mode (god-send), I'd probably just take it as a chance to go outside instead or something. :/

The Evil Within does indeed look solid. Deep Down looks good, but isn't really my kind of game. None of these are launch window for Japan though, are they? The Japanese offerings for launch still seem kind of anemic. Knack and...?

I love me some Shinsengumi, so bummed that Yakuza will never make it over. At least it gave us the brilliant "Don't talk, be serious!" line, which made me chuckle. The dead-pan apathetic translation brought an unexpected post-modernist deconstructive vibe to the conference.

Post by: Kevadu on September 09, 2013, 02:07:18 PM
You might not get to play VLR on it...

It sounds like not all Vita games will be compatible with it.  Specifically, it seems like games that use touch features a lot simple won't work.  Games that only use touch features a little may be patched with alternate controls but that's probably up to the devs.  I don't know, it seems pretty confusing to me.  They're going to be splitting the market between Vita TV compatible and not-compatible games.  That seems like the biggest downside to this whole thing.

It works for games where you can slowly pick a location (VLR) but not at all for anything fast paced.

Screen Comparison: New PS Vita (LCD) vs PS Vita (AMOLED) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9_dB82DmHU) -- Fanta711, YouTube

"This is a video comparing the LCD screen of the new PlayStation Vita (PCH-2000) with the AMOLED screen of the original model (PCH-1000). The new PS Vita is the black model sitting at the bottom.

It's worth mentioning that the two units were sitting at different angles due to space constraints. The top Vita is leaning forward. This may or may not have an effect on how they appeared in the video.

My hands were extra shaky today. I apologize for that."

Sony's Chris Ashimine not sure if next Naughty Dog game will be Uncharted, but it will be on PS4 (http://www.dualshockers.com/2013/10/08/sonys-chris-ashimine-not-sure-if-next-naughty-dog-game-will-be-uncharted-but-it-will-be-on-ps4/) -- Source: DualShockers

After the 3 main games, a digital comic, a novel, a Vita game and a turn-based card game I don't know if I want too see more of Uncharted... UC1 is fine as a game and it has nice moments, UC2 was a great and UC3 expanded on what UC2 did while making the multiplayer more fun (and messy).

Best thing Uncharted 4 could do is be prettier, expand the gameplay a bit more and continue the story of Nathan Drake (even though UC3 give a pretty nice "farewell" kind of ending).

A sequel to The Last of Us is kind of a weird situation. They can make a sequel set a few years later and what not, but the entire narrative of TLoU and the reason for why that game even exists is mainly because of the experience the main game already provides, which a complete experience that doesn't really leave you with the curiosity or need for a sequel, and with that in mind the whole thing with TLoU is "over" outside of the single-player DLC Naughty Dog has been working on (and that's a side story).

So yeah. I personally would rather see Naughty Dog starting fresh on PS4.

That's just...a strange person to ask.  He seems to be a localization guy for bringing Uncharted games to Japan, but that doesn't mean he knows what's going on at Naughty Dog.

Also , I thought it was pretty much confirmed that the next Naughty Dog game would be for PS4?  I mean, they've publicly talked about adopting their engine to PS4 before.

Finally, Naughty Dog made a big deal about splitting into two teams after Uncharted 2 (up until then they had only ever worked on one game at a time).  Meaning that the team that made Uncharted 3 and the team that made TLoU are separate.  The Uncharted 3 team has presumably been working on something for a while now.  And whatever it is, it's not going to be a TLoU sequel since the first game hadn't even been finished yet for most of that time.

P.S.: I would be happy to see more games set in TLoU's universe but not necessarily following Joel and Ellie.  I think there are still plenty of stories to tell there.

It isn't just space that is the problem though. Not everyone has great internet and although you could just say all they need to do is get a better one, that isn't always an option. For some people it is cost and for others it is due to there simply being no better alternative available. I do agree that digital downloads are going to be the primary way to get games in the future though if they are not almost there.

So the PS Vita TV is out in Japan.  And I've already seen several posts saying, "OMG Vita TV is region locked!!!"  So I did a little digging (since I don't actually have the device) and people are saying this because they can't log in with their US/EU PSN accounts.  But it seems to be more an issue that the US/EU PSN servers don't know anything about the Vita TV yet so it gives an error, rather than being an actual region lock.  This would presumably change when the device is released in these regions.

Still, I would probably hold back on importing for now.  In addition to the PSN issues, US/EU games that need to be patched for the Vita TV (because of the lack of touch controls) presumably aren't being patched yet when the system isn't even out here.  So there isn't much you can do with the device other than playing Japanese games.  For now, anyway.

So I sort of watched Sony's PS4 launch event thingy (more like I had it on in the background while doing other stuff) but it seems pretty friggin boring.  One big commercial, really.  The only thing worth taking away from it is that they announced Uncharted 4, though it was just a teaser with no real info.

Last night I watched yosp play some of Contrast on a Twitch stream.  It looks great and I like that noir vibe it has.  It is the only day one game that interests me.


Yoda - Read on another forum that the ds4 can be used on a ps3 with a cable and only on certain games.

*sigh* More Uncharted... that's great I guess. Right now I feel tired of the series and disappointed in ND because I personally want something new from them.

Then again by the time Uncharted comes out on PS4 I might be in the mood for more, but I'm not sure. It all really depends if they move the series in a interesting place with maybe new characters while still being set in the same universe or something along those lines.

For now though I'm satisfied with what they showed and said of the DLC for the The Last of Us.

It took me this long and Yggdrasil's post to realize Naughty Dog and Nathan Drake have the same initials.

So for $100, what is the name of the attack used when the command 236P is used?

At this point, I'm just wondering why they insist on taxis... like does it have something to do with the new game or what?
I mean, I'll be sad now if no taxis are involved =/

Ah the joys of getting hardware at launch. I set my PS4 up yesterday and nearly thought that I had bricked it when I tried to update via the interwebs. After the system restart and indicating that I accepted the ToS and such, I just got a black screen for more than 10 minutes. I left it for a while unsure of whether it was working without video or not before just giving up and unplugging it. Then it seemed I might have bricked it because I could not get it to turn on. After a while though I accidently activated a safe mode boot up. From there I was able to start the system update via usb. And now it seems to be working fine. So hurray!

I read that as Titanfall at first.

Wow. The hype really got to people. :o

If everything goes well I'll most likely get one when The Evil Within comes out next year. Dunno about MGSV: Ground Zeroes right now though, the limited edition Japan is getting is salt on the wound for a fan like me.

Played my PS4 over the weekend, Resogun is very addicting, and Contrast (only watched my brother play) while it has some pretty cool ideas, feels altogether too rushed. The idea was there, but the execution and presentation, in my opinion just seems like a scaled up version of any generic adventure game from the early 2000's era of PC gaming. I will still play it, but I'm glad I didn't have to pay for it.

I am baffled by the apparent requirement to use a Facebook account for a lot of PS4 features (streaming and social stuff).  As somebody who won't touch Facebook with a 10 foot pole that just guarantees that I will never use those features...

OK, so I probably wasn't ever going to use them anyway, but now I'm definitely not going to use them.

Can't you just create a fake account? I don't use facebook either but have created one if anything ever requires it.

That's still pretty bullshit.

Slows down people from making videos of a vulgar nature and uploading from their ps4s,probably.

Tearaway reviews are out and they're quite a bit more positive than I expected.  I wasn't really impressed by the game when I played it at PAX, but I guess I'm in the minority there.
