Some news about the direction of Playstation and upcoming games

Shreier revealed they are shifting further toward AAA movie games:
>Japan Studio being downsized, Sony no longer interested in niche Japanese titles
>Naughty Dog is working on Uncharted 5, a new multiplayer game and a remake of The Last of Us
>The Visual Arts Service Group wanted to form their own studio but their first project was handed to Naughty Dog instead
>Bend (Eidetic) aren't working on anything of their own and are now a support studio for Naughty Dog

The next Kojima Productions game might not be on Playstation:
>Xbox rumored to be publishing Kojima's next game
>Xbox is on the record wanting more Japanese studios / games
>Ludens figure on Phil Spencer's shelf next to Xbox logo (pic related)

Is there any salvaging 9th gen for Sony at this point?

>Japan Studio being downsized, Sony no longer interested in niche Japanese titles

Translation: more awful american-esque games and no more unique and well made PS2 era tier games

>Naughty Dog is working on Uncharted 5

Because they haven't milked that series enough already

>Is there any salvaging 9th gen for Sony at this point?

It's ded. Either do PC if you're a gamer, or enjoy being humiliated and dissapointed from here until you die

What were your thoughts on the PlayStation Portable and PS Vita? Did you think it was good or bad? Do you have any favorite games or experiences with them?

Me, I thought that it was really good and interesting concept, especially the Vita. It tried and did a lot of things interestingly. I'm a little upset that it got discontinued, since they were the only challenge against Nintendo. Vita just needed more games to remain competitive.

doubt that any mod pays enough attention to this board for a thread to get cyclical or sticky tbh


not like it matters, this board is so slow that an active thread is defacto sticky so just post here about it or don't


It especially shows now that there's a generational gap on imageboards with all the boomer vs zoomer shitpost wars. But even among younger people there doesn't seem to be as much enthusiasm about things on the internet these days. My personal theory is that it's related to the more prominent use of irl identities online and the overpoliticization of the internet, so people are more wary of posting strong opinions about anything. This might be complete bullshit though, idk


well ofc thats part of, probably even most of it, but theres also so much more deliberate demoralization going around not just in mass media but even down to small community levels that it probably just kills any possibility of joy to be had in interacting with anyone but a super tiny circle of friends they know irl and showing open hostility towards everyone else
modern children are some of the loneliest people ive ever seen even the niggers dont seem to interact with each other as much nowadays outside of burning and looting when the excuse arises


Yeah, I hate to be a typical boomer whining about smartphones but I've seen whole groups of people in public all sitting in silence staring at their phones, shit is weird tbh

the best stuff so far appears to be for habbo hotel style shit. i bet you could do some pretty autistic economics/role playing stuff, maybe in a fantasy setting or something. but combat is still so clunky for the majority of stuff
but.. i could see clever studios cracking the formula. HL:A pulled it off about as well as i think is possible at this point

I think they just need to play to the strengths of VR. Imagine a game like Steel Battalion where you are in a cockpit and you have hundreds of buttons and controls all in VR. And you have to keep all these systems functioning while also completing objectives. That would kick ass


if they could get tracking down perfectly, than i guess that could work

So did you give it a try? How was it? Did you like it or hate it? It's not a game for everyone so I can understand how you may feel? Really wants to know


Bayonetta is way better than DMC lol wtf are you smoking.

I personally think it's fine in any situation. Why would you spend money on something you can get for free with no negative repercussions? Especially when you're getting a better experience with pirating most of the time since you don't have to deal with Steam/Epic Games/whatever other shitty DRM frontends. Maybe I can understand if it's some small indie studio you want to support, but feeling an obligation to give money to multi-million dollar corporations is just retarded.

Speaking of AOE2 I recently found out about Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds which is basically a Star Wars-themed reskin of the game. Personally I'm not that educated in Star Wars lore or anything but it's still a pretty fun game. Plus there's a fan mod similar to Forgotten Empires called Expanding Fronts which adds new civs, maps, better support for modern machines among other shit.

Basically it ports the whole game into the Fallout 2 engine with all the newer features and bugfixes plus some other optional shit you can tweak in the ini.

There's also a Russian fan-game called Fallout of Nevada that I've been meaning to try, apparently it's bretty good but idk.

Some guy did a report investigating what's happening with Dying Light 2, found out Techland management are mad lads:

>Over the course of my investigation, multiple people independently shared a story of an artist who turned in some work that management disliked. The feedback they received was "pedalski", which translates to "too f**got-like". In another meeting, the team was discussing the "modern dark ages'' - one of the core design pillars of Dying Light 2 - and one lead blurted out, “At least they knew how to deal with women back then!”. It’s hard to feel like complaints about sexism are being taken seriously when the main feature of the CEO’s office is a photo of a naked woman next to a cheetah. (pic related)

>Marchewka (CEO of Techland) is an ideas man, and he had some ideas to promote Dying Light 2. One plan was to drive an unmarked van down to the Mexican border and offload a pile of body bags, sparking a macabre ARG that would eventually reveal itself to be part of the game’s marketing campaign. Another idea that was floated, just around the start of the pandemic, was to send out medical test kits. People would test themselves and get results back telling them whether or not they were susceptible to the game’s fictional pathogen. Because the kits were for real diseases, though, you might also find out you have something seriously wrong with you.

On the not so funny side Dying Light 2 is a disaster and will probably end up like Cyberjunk:

>Another person who worked on Dying Light 2 for multiple years tells me they “have no idea what the final game will be, or what the story is. It’s changed so much. People kept quitting, getting fired.” The reveal of Dying Light 2 promised a tangled web of choice and consequence, where one playthrough will only allow players to see 50 percent of the game’s content, but much of that has been stripped back.

>“What is going on in Techland is just total chaos, not iteration. There are plenty of examples where there is someone responsible for a given feature - like a game director decides on something - but Pyza and Marchewka just overwrite this because of some bullshit reason, like they've seen something working differently in other games so we can do it like that.”

>“It could also be something like the shape of spikes on the

is bug fables that paper mario lookin thang?


i'll have you know i fucking HATE video gaymes


yes. its not as good as he was hyping it up to be but i think its enjoyable enough for at least one playthrough. i think he got so much shit purely because he was so enthusiastic, because the game itself isnt abhorrent


People playing games and having fun don't have as much free time to post stupid shit like people who don't. It's not rocket science.

You like a shit genre of games which don't hold up outside of nostalgia. Fallout is a walking sim with terrible combat stacked on top of it. Which has become the dominant genre of late and is why so many people are annoyed with gaming on the whole. They don't make swift 10 hour experiences any more, they make skyrim or dark souls knock offs lasting 40+ hours where the majority of it is the game playing it's self.

RE2 and Super hot 2 both came out in the last few years. MSGV is no where near to either of them in terms of quality.


Open world imo is good in concept. People have always wanted non-linear games with as much freedom as possible, and open worlds are an attempt to realise that. But in 99% of cases it isn't executed well because it's based around systems like quest markers and fast travel which eliminate the need to make the map actually interesting. There's also the fact that because it's the popular thing right now it often gets forced into games where it doesn't belong. But it isn't unusual in the industry for companies to make generic copies of the popular thing. It was only about 10-15 years ago for example that every fucking game was a generic FPS thanks to the popularity of Halo and CoD. Go back even further and there were a shit ton of generic JRPGs everywhere trying to copy Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest etc.

why dont studios make games that are different these days?
everything is just a CoD clone
stuff like CnC Renegade was weird and fun
Renegade X now is even better
Would something different not sell? Whats the deal?

I guess it's mostly just about marketing. Especially now that a lot of companies are going for the whole movie game thing and trying to appeal to /tv/fags. But imo mocap in general, with or without celebrities, is unimaginative and basically kills artistic nuance. A good example is DMCV. While I loved the game itself, the mocapped characters and more realistic artstyle were boring compared to what we seen in 1-4 imo.


>why dont studios make games that are different these days?

It costs a lot more money to develop games nowadays. See vid related. Only reason so many good games got made in the PS2/XBox/Gamecube era is because it was relatively easy to develop for those respective consoles.


>because it was relatively easy to develop for those respective consoles.
what about PC games? i dont see why those would be any harder to develop than console?
not that id know, but just a guess


PC games back then were generally more complicated because you have to optimize it to run on all different kinds of hardware, while with consoles everyone has the exact same system. Hence why a lot of PC ports of old console games run like complete shit. This isn't really the case anymore nowadays since most games are made in pre-existing engines such as Unreal, Unity etc. which are heavily optimized and make it very easy to compile the game for PC or any console.


It's very hard to make anything innovative when you can't talk to 90% of your dev team. Games now aren't made by a single studio, they're broken up piece by piece to different studios. One company will do the FPS elements, one the driving and one the story. Even if you as the FPS designer have a really cool idea for the driving element you can't pass it on or use it. Adding that additional feature might break another studio's segment and the whole game falls apart.

Unity and Unreal are extremely unpotimized. They have to work for so many different styles of game they can't manage data effectively. A slow paced walking sim doesn't need the same loading speed as a break neck racing game does. 2D and 3D work very differently too and none of those engines are able to refine themselves in any area without sacrificing in another.

fwif I can't remember the story for shit but it's some pretty standard tom clancy shit. sam's a badass single dad who don't need no woman to raise his daughter.
the setting is pretty much just where a slightly futuristic military industrial complex of the mid 00s and the intelligence community intersect.
it's way way way more grounded in that regard than say mgs, and the gameplay as well.


Story and characters are all good or at least not irritating as fuck. Setting is a bunch of places all over the world at night, not sure what to say there it's pretty varied. Like the first level is some South American shithole iirc, then the next one is a cargo freighter at sea. You also go to North Korea.


I'm not 100% certain but I'm pretty sure you can hack the computers without having to even enter that room. Like just sit at the vent and use his nagic wifi gadget bullshit.


I only played the first Splinter Cell and it was fucking complete shit so I didn't bother to finish it or even try any of the other games in the series. Couldn't stand it, tbh.
