believe it or not, there are more than just the best gamers in the world interested in playing this game. i really cant understand what all the fuss is about. there will be different difficulty settings, there ya go. but noooo, we have to hear constant whining about if the game is going to be hard enough. maybe they will come out with an impossible mode. that way, the super duper great gamers will never actually be able to beat the game, and can be happy forever after.


What if it's too easy with the difficulties in it.


sigh.... play waisted, blind folded, one handed. etc...


You're right. I should totally have to handicap myself because of someone else's unwillingness to learn and adapt.

Your attitude is a cancer in the world. Make everything easier for lazy asses.


Man, why are you all being so hostile and crying so much? They're talking about easy mode FFS dude. It's even mentioned in the PlatinumGames blog post today and lots of interviews. If you want to play it with some challenge then go for S ranks on Revengeance difficulty and in VR missions. If you want to make it harder then do a no upgrade S rank run on Revengeance. They've stated before now lots of times that the hardest difficulty will be challenging. If you really think easy mode being easy is going to spoil your enjoyment of hard mode then you're prematurely jumping to a stupid conclusion.


Metal Gear Solid fans who don't play or even like hack and slash games will use easy difficulty, so will people who don't care about being the best and attention whoring about it. They all pay the same $60 too. If you don't want to play on easy you don't have to, you know they put four different difficulty modes in for a reason dude.


Quit crying that everyone who doesn't play hard mode is lazy and they're ruining the game for you before it's even out. If anything's cancer here it's your entitled attitude that this game and every difficulty in it should be tailored specifically for you, man. No one cares that you think you're really skilled and you're already making out the game isn't going to be hard enough for you on the basis easy mode is easy. You really don't need to post on four pages crying about it to try and make yourself look like a hardcore player.


You aren't hardcore, you're sad. Go outside and get some sun, eat some oats, do some squats, few years down the line you'll thank me. You'll look up to the stars and say "Thanks bro, you totally turned my pathetic existence around with your motivating post about what a crying gas-bag I am, things are better now; I look better, I feel better, I cry a lot less. I owe it all to you, man, thank you."


Just saying man, just saying.

(Also I'm going to play this game once on normal mode then give it away to my 13 year old nephew and get on with my superior life. Yeah you're mad, try not to cry about it dude, hold back dose tears boy, you can do it, I believe in you)


Oh looks it's the typical "I have a life and you don't" guy. Yeah, get out. You don't know anything about me, stop pretending you do. You're trying to hard btw. It makes you look sad.

Anybody who use the "get a life" card on the Internet should be repeatedly slapped in the back of the head. With a slapjack.

They did the same thing with Dishonored, dumbing the party guest level. Game testers were originally stuck because a guard kept telling them, no one was allowed to go upstairs. So they changed it to where someone gives you hints if you take too long or something to that effect.

Why care if they add easy mode as long as they don't **** up anything for the rest of us? Looks like nerd chest-beating in this topic to me. Be happy they didn't have enough time to completely destroy the game.

I hate this attitude. You're on a video game forum calling people nerds. Really..?

This shouldn't bother anyone. Bayonetta has an easy automatic mode but the hard and NSIC modes were plenty challenging. I'm sure this game will be along those lines. I would never play on the easy settings, but the fact that they exist doesn't bother me either.
