  1. I'm also a fan of the reboot series - really enjoyed the last two games. The old ones had their moments but were often frustrating and I don't think I'd have the patience for them today. So yeah, this will be on the list for sure.

  2. As an upgrade it's quite expensive, on the other hand with consoles the outlay on the hardware is quickly forgotten when the costs for the actual games and online subscriptions start piling up. I don't think €500 is excessive if it's indeed very powerful, and in my case there's years of Xbox One exclusives to cherry pick from, some of them ridiculously cheap by now.


    Has there anything be said about performance of 'non optimized' games? Will the problems like crushed blacks and worse resolution/framerates persist on older titles?

  3. I don't have an Xbone (base PS4 and Switch only), but this might tempt me into buying one actually. More interested in this due to the extra oomph than buying the original Xbone with its subpar hardware at any rate.

    I'm wondering if they'll add anything, like maybe finishing that Dam that was left over in the original games code.


    Or if not, might they get the chance to design their own Colossi?  Not just copying/adapting the design of the original game, but showing their own take on it.

    I think hoping for anything more than a graphically brushed up port will leave you disappointed.

    Nah, it looks nothing like a UE mock up. Behave!


    SotC is an incredible, timeless game held back by some pretty irritating controls - even in the remastered versions. If bluepoint can tweak those, this could be sensational.

    Maybe they could do a patch for The Last Guardian while they're at it too? Another Team Ico game that was great due to the world and atmosphere it created but hampered by bad controls and an annoying camera.

  6. Game-wise Nintendo. Good games on all platforms, but Nintendo went the extra mile and finally delivered Metroid. Microsoft also did well, chances are I'll be buying that new Bone X of them to complete the trinity of this generation.

    I hate the look.


    The whole thing stinks of Super Mario Sunshine meets Sonic 2006.


    I loved the next gen Mario 3 feel of 3D Land and World.


    Hate the hat gimmick. Hope I'm wrong but I've got a bad feeling over it.


    Plus it looks shit compared to the Galaxy and 3D games :(



    I'm also going to avoid the media for this now - I'm already convinced it's going to be great and I rather explore it all for myself from now on.

  8. As a massive fan of the first game and being hugely disappointed by the sequel, I frankly can't say the footage is filling me with confidence. I hope it turns out to be good, but it looks kind of cheap to me.

  9. I really like those old Burnouts and the Criterion developed Need for Speed Hot Pursuit was great. When the EA E3 thread came up and I saw this trailer I was very happy. That is, until all the terrible acting and cutscene and narrative shit kicked in. FFS guys, how hard can it be. Preorder cancelled, looks utter crap.

  10. I like the more inventive ones that make you play in a new way. Like the 'pacifier' in Geometry Wars where you have to survive a certain time without firing a shot. Those are fun. But the ones that are more 'complete the game within 2 hours on bloody insane difficulty without dying once' or 'collect every piece of hidden shit that has no use in the game besides triggering this trophy' - yeah, do one.
