  1. I recommend Until Dawn.
  2. The intimate care to narrative storytelling was on par with a decent literary novel. It was that good for me. I hope one day, Remedy does a 'riskier' project where they know they can still make an interesting video game where you don't need to shoot or kill something.
  3. When I was little, a raiding war party of trophies attacked my village, killing everyone including my family. They left behind the charred ruins of my village and a devastated orphan. Today, I hunt them down one by one.
  4. Bruh.
  5. Simply enjoying the hobby. But if you still want a trophy related answer; then I guess getting SFV's in the MP pools of Australia.
  6. Well it's a good thing I didn't say that. Guess your wording has proven to be a fail on why GR2 is "generic". This is the second time you've tried to shift goalposts.
  7. Tip: Physical copies prices will drop drastically after the PS+ pukes out this pizza slice JRPG. Usually in my country they go as low as $10. So you can have a free upgrade path via that.
  8. So now the goalpost criterion has shifted from Kat being alone, to a companion that doesn't talk? I'm curious to know what open world games you believe are not generic because of those above things because even some of the best open world games I played like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would be classified 'generic' for committing those scenes. Anything with going from A to B. Doing a side quest. Collecting things. Doing story missions.
  9. The 'Americanisation' of Sony PlayStation initially started with the Shawn Layden era. He busted the kneecaps of a bunch of non-American studios like: Bigbig Studios Studio Liverpool Evolution Studios (this one still hurts me) Guerrilla Cambridge Manchester Studio And what's the left-over wisdom for creating a high concentration of studios in U.S.A? Developers have to operate and try to develop games in a country where COVID-19 is the worst, worse than any other country, even the UK. Shawn Layden also fucked over the Gravity Rush series by setting retail exclusivity to Amazon for GR:Remastered. I remember that year, going into forums and seeing people asking where they could buy a copy of the game because they weren't the digital types. It was completely sold out from Amazon and there was still more interest from newbies who wanted to try out the series but eventually they moved on when it turned out to be a dead end. Then comes Gravity Rush 2. What does the head of SIE Layden do for a gem of a game like this? Gives it an absymal marketing. That combined with the GRR fuck-up led to mediocre sales. When Jim Ryan came in, he had this pitch that he was more of an international type of leadership guy. He was someone who worked the Europe region and some people say he's the reason why PS3 eventually overtook 360 in the end of 7th gen. Now I don't know what the internal conversation has been like, but it seems to me that a lot of veterans of Japan Studio were not happy with the hierachy of leadership shifting to ASOBI as overlord. Another person in the equation here is Hermen Hulst (head of PS Studios). He nurtured Horizon: Zero Dawn so it's safe to say that a Dutch executive had input in this. I think it sucks that key creatives who gave us Gravity Rush are gone. I think it's unfair they've been punished by the current leadership because of the past regime. But I hope things will prevail. I read before this restructure that Japan Studio was the largest in PS Studio by headcount, so maybe even after the restructuring, they will still be a sizeable studio. Santa Monica studio has also gone through something like this, after GoW Ascension came out and directors were leaving. Did we play the same game? Kat is with Dusty most of the time and I don't see how omni-directional exploration and city-scapes is "a pretty generic open world game in terms of structure".
  10. So yeah, people have been threatening the studio saying their game promotes violence and that if they don't comply, they'll kill the devs....lol The game has already launched on Steam where it's currently 25% off. It's about to launch on Switch and the PS4 | Vita ports are on their way soon.
  11. Last I heard, the studio pledged to ameliorate the remake. Has there been progress since launch?
  12. Turns out I was still able to pop the all gigs done trophy for that region, despite that NCPD not registering as done.
  13. Are the missables tricky?
  14. Director had some weird takes on Lara's dual pistol thing + he made Battlefield Hardline = no buy from me.
  15. It's my favourite Quantic Dream game - which is kind of odd since it's also the only one I haven't platted yet.
  16. If cross-save was a thing across the generation ports, I wouldn't bother with assist mode. But I'm too lazy to go through that initial struggle and hussle all over again to get Jesse fully-loaded so I will be using it.
  17. How I imagine the disgruntled who scoff that Top Hat made this up for attention while knowing the devs will get more money either way/they didn't bend to death threats.
  18. I'm also having an issue. It's kinda annoying cuz I might need to recover an minus-30hours save file if I can't figure out this glitch. https://streamable.com/bgm6na
  19. It's kinda a drag. I thought I'd be one of those who doesn't mind waiting until Q3 of Year 2 but I wanna play Haven and that runs better on PS5 compared to the poor PS4 Pro performance.
  20. Jettomero - Its soundtrack+art style of travelling through space makes it such a chilled game. Trails of Cold Steel - Deserves the spotlight wasted on Square Enix games like FFXV. Guilty Gear Xrd REV2 - This is, right now, the best fighting game out there. Not SFV, MK11 or TEKKEN 7. Gravity Rush series - Its gameplay system is unlike anything I've played before. The multi-directional orientation tickles your neurons as you're getting used to Kat's powers. rain (PS3) - Short but neat game about a boy stuck in a nightmare. Made by Japan Studio. +1 for Dreams, OP. I played the Halloween games and man, there are some really talented designers out there who put out interesting levels and ideas.
  21. This actor plays Jaime Lannister, the Kingslayer in Game of Thrones.
  22. Have they announced a date for this specific update for PS4? I logged into the game today and there was a 300-something MB update. I haven't played since last year.
  23. Get 13 Sentinels if you haven't. It has a good story.
  24. There were folks who wanted this game to fail for petty reasons. Glad to see Sucker Punch's game did well.
