          Yeah, they're still doing that with Deracine for example. They didn't have to do that game but they did it anyway. It's also funny how proud Miyazaki was on that game despite the flop.

            I'd have loved to play Deracine, if only it wasn't bound to the most choked-out VR Headset. VR is way too immature of a market to force exclusives on. I honestly am totally fine with exclusives and hate multiplatform titles because the purpose of them is to sell as many copies as possible and that in turn means they are usually casualized shit aimed for the call of duty fanbase they won't get, but you can't do this to VR. People need to see that it's worth doing and making it harder to play the good games it has to offer isn't helping anybody.

        There's been a damage over time mission in every classic AC as far as I'm aware. Either a bases radiator is malfunctioning or some acid is in the air.
        In AC3 one of the missions if you having to turn off some explosives in a thermal plant.
        I honestly find them fun because you usually have to tinker with your mech to find a suitable build for such a mission.

      If you actually played AC, you'd know the poison swamps in that series don't bother with a special bar, they just start damaging your health immediately and don't stop until you finish the entire mission or leave the area.
      Well, except for the heat version of the poison swamps, which are somehow even worse.

      They have enough money from Souls games to do whatever the fuck they want, and they also actually give enough of a shit to have a specific thing they want to make. That latter part is very rare in the games industry, so I can see why you wouldn't think of it.

      Who can blame them? I'm an ACfag primarily, but I've played probably a dozen other From games over the years and they've all been at least decent. Blew my mind recently when I realised on top of all the usual shit, Soulsborne, Kingsfield, AC, they also made the Otogi games.
      Honestly their current popularity has given me a little bit of faith in normalfags. Their taste isn't ALWAYS shit, occasionally they can latch on to something good.
