Dragon fin soup creators say can't fix PlayStation versions

I've been putting it off waiting for a fix. Guess I won't ever touch it now. It looked interesting too. :(

The article states that everything about the port was handled by an entirely different company and the dev of the main PC version doesn't even have access to the source code in order to fix it. It sucks but I'd say the blame lies more with Blit Works than Grimm Bros.

what are the problems with the game?

I heard it's even worse on Vita.

if it's so broken then why are they still selling it?

they should refund anyone who bought it then.

This thread title should more accurately state that Blitworks fucked up the port and they haven't fixed their screwup. Because if that is stated, then the story goes from "Grimm Bros are soup sandwiches who can't fix their own shit" to "Grimm Bros fixed their shit on PC, but can't do the same for Playstation because a separate independent studio that did the port fucked it up and can't/won't fix their issues". In news, that sort of thing is called "burying the lead".

 

Just forget everything I said here, once I dug a little deeper than what the original link said. There was some pretty shady shit done to meet a PS+ deadline.

I feel for those who started the game and are concerned about their completion rate. This is straight up unacceptable.

The article clearly says "BlitWorks hasn’t yet said anything publicly about updating the PlayStation versions of Dragon Fin Soup.", so I don't see what all the commotion is about. Grimm Bros has said numerous times they didn't port Dragon Fin Soup to the Playstation and this article pretty much says the same thing.

If someone could just be kind enough to post the last link from BlitWorks saying how they had to port the game midway through development and how they knew it was broken and they couldn't do anything about it because they are just a PORTING studio...

This thread title should more accurately state that Blitworks fucked up the port and they haven't fixed their screwup. Because if that is stated, then the story goes from "Grimm Bros are soup sandwiches who can't fix their own shit" to "Grimm Bros fixed their shit on PC, but can't do the same for Playstation because a separate independent studio that did the port fucked it up and can't/won't fix their issues". In news, that sort of thing is called "burying the lead".

Do not buy into this bullshit, clearly a click bait article. BlitWorks said they just need the patch from the company to port the patch to ps3. It's true however that the devs won't fix the consoles versions themselves, but this "my hands are tied" is a bullshit beyond insulting.

I just hope that we don't have another Luftrausers among us...

This is why ppl such as I are critical of PS Plus. Sony shoves these "highly rated" games. How are these bug infested games "highly rated"?

Wait, forget everything I just said. Because when you find out that this game was sent to the porting studio incomplete and not fully tested, in order to meet the PS+ contract Grimm Bros signed with Sony to meet the funding goal for the Playstation versions to exist in the first place, you'll be angrier than that article could ever make you. Good thing I didn't lay down a single cent for it.

What a shame, it was a pretty funky platinum to have.

 

 

Though, if I'm honest, the game barely looked and played like something that came from the early 2000s, so I'm not exactly weeping over here.

Then they should pull it from the playstation store. They shouldn't just continue to sell a game they know is broken.

Well... we would have to live in a perfect world for this to happen.

 

What is broken on this game apart from unobtainable Plat btw? If Plat is the only problem, well, they have no reason to oblige... :/

That sucks because I really liked the art style and wanted to get the platinum someday. Hopefully they fix the problem.

Think the Vita version at least is just plain broken.. crashes constantly.

The game freezes and crashes randomly, making it very hard to get some trophies that have to be done in one sitting (i.e. kill x amount of enemies, complete 20 rune puzzles, go on 50 drunk rampages, etc.). Some trophies are unobtainable because they won't pop when requirements are met and some pets just don't spawn.

I really don't know why Sony always choose the most broken and glitched games to the IGC. And also, how they allow to developers of these games (the same thing goes with Styx: Master of Shadows) simply says "we can't patch it because it's very expensive, so you all will remain with this broken shit game forever, because we don't give a shit to you players".

I hope they do patch it. I've been looking forward to attempting the platinum for it.

Same, archon said good things about the game and I look forward to playing it whenever it's fixed. Until then, off my HD.
