Nioh had it and it was a god send. I get not being able to pause while online, but it was retarded for normal single player gameplay. I can't count how many wife faction points I lost due to her having something melt down and I was like "HOLD ON I CAN'T PAUSE"
And I just watched that progression video. That changes everything for me personally. I was totally turned off by this game when everyone was basically saying there was no progression, but now that I have seen that, they were obviously wrong. That system sounds completely awesome and actually may be better than the incremental (at best) improvements you saw dropping one point at a time into any given stat. Now I'm getting excited for this game.
