I called it @CriticalGaming: I called it! I fucking called it!


I never said they they weren't; you are not listening. What I am saying, is that scalpers are still going to try to find a way to overcharge or oversell their second hand copies. If you notice, I was responding to what @hanselthecaretaker said earlier in responding to it. Availability or not, there are going to be jackasses buying and inflating these. You bet your ass on that.

Though odds are this happens regardless of disc inclusion. Hell, it’d be a bonus if it included the disc which would encourage further gouging for people that just want the digital code.

I also like how they said there’s no rush to preorder in the previous preorder article -

Exactly. Scalpers are gonna scalp either way. It's just matter of what's the bigger motivation, and how much desperation they can squeeze out of people.

I have not seen any of the leaks yet, nor know which ones are out.

Hopefully it won’t turn into another TLoU2 fiasco. Horizon: Forbidden West leaks didn’t cause as much drama at least. Funny how it always seems to be big Sony exclusives that get leaked. Hate to think they do this crap on purpose.

I highly doubt it will. I just want a jump button! Is that so hard?
Especially after a fricken Souls game added one to great effect. No reason a more action oriented game can’t have one. They can’t even use the “but cinematic!” excuse since TLoU2 even added one.

That wasn't a jump, that was a half-assed hop at best.

You know it's sad when Last Of Us Pt. 2 added a jump button. Not to mention both Sekiro & ER have jumping. Even Grasshopper Studios added jumping in No More Heroes TSA & III. It technically did exist in the second game, but it was just for one character in two levels. Other than that, 90% of the time there's no jumping. The only time I seen the lack of a jump button work in a third person melee action game, is Killer Is Dead.

At least it was an option. You want to see a half-assed hop? Look at a clip of Jack "jumping" in Quantum Break. It can't even be dignified with a half-assed hop. It's more like a skip.

So now we have a skip, hop, and a jump button. Man.....

If Ragnarok does indeed have a dedicated jump button, I do hope it serves more than another way to attack, and actually be used during puzzles.

Or take the BOTW route where jump is made obsolete with insane physics and exploits

If jumping is just an a attack option in this game, that would be more than enough for me. Both would be nice though. I swear they do insurmountable waste mounted wall or fence on the demi-god again, I'm going to lose it. I will literally dock a point from this game. Some people thought I was joking in the past but I'm serious.
