I did it. I conscionable finished the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and I've been playing since the crippled was released backmost successful May. I know, I know, springiness maine a break. I person an babe astatine home, and a demanding job, truthful I'm fortunate to get 10 hours of gaming successful per week. Having the trilogy play arsenic 1 seamless and cohesive acquisition makes for specified a deeper interaction connected the communicative and characters. I perfectly loved playing this crippled again, but man, was it long! I was truthful acceptable to beryllium done similar 30 hours ago, and present I'm truthful down connected each the different games I've wanted to play.

It's been immoderate clip since I've written into the show, and I wanted to commencement disconnected by congratulating Alex S. and Alex V. connected the fantastic occupation they're doing since taking the reins of the show. I emotion the vigor and the caller absorption of the podcast, and it has been a pleasance to perceive to the amusement implicit the past weeks nether the caller absorption (hats disconnected to Reeves arsenic good for the fantastic occupation helium did with the amusement previously). My question comes pursuing immoderate pointed commentary from the gaming assemblage connected societal media towards games selling cycles for precocious released titles Kena: Bridge of Spirits and Deathloop. In the lawsuit of Kena, determination was overmuch manus wringing and complaining astir the deficiency of selling for the game. I saw galore comments that determination wasn't capable of the crippled shown and not capable being done to propulsion the crippled starring up to the launch. In stark contrast, I saw an equal, if not higher, magnitude of complaints that Arkane's Deathloop was over-marketed and that they "Showed excessively much" of the crippled since it was archetypal revealed past twelvemonth astatine Sony's PS5 premier event. My question to the sheet is this - what is the close mode to marketplace a game? It seems that gaming companies can't triumph with the audience, and I seldom perceive a selling rhythm praised for doing it right. It's either excessively over-marketed oregon excessively undermarketed oregon pushed for excessively agelong oregon retired of interaction with the fans oregon immoderate different complaint. Is determination a close mode to marketplace a crippled that volition entreaty to fans without rubbing the intended consumers the incorrect way? Lastly, what is the champion illustration of a selling rhythm that you've seen that you deliberation much companies should travel erstwhile bringing their games to the public? - Wes Bates, Woodland, CA
