    I kind of don't like the sound of that at all. lately SMT has been the benchmark for battles where you aim to finish a battle before the enemy reacts as they can be so deadly and if they get a round in it's squeaky gum time. I really don't like long battles where you forget where you are after you come out of one.

    I'm very wary of this game. I played the demo a while ago and was so bored by the constant dialogue that I turned it off before I even got into a battle. It sounds like this game is going to have major pacing issues.

    I feel the system hasn't even really found its feet yet. The amount of good exclusives has been very low (a lot of people seem to be counting PS4/PC releases as exclusives). There's a slew of good stuff coming and usually it's the late era of a console when the good stuff comes but so far as a gaming PC owner, the PS4 really hasn't offered a lot to tempt me away from that platform.

    The only thing that stood out about gta4 for me was how boring it was. The driving was no longer fun and every mission was a variation of drive here and shoot people with the mediocre third person combat controls. The DLC went a long way to fixing it.
