Saints Row 4 launches on current-gen consoles and PC this August. But why, unlike games like Assassin's Creed 4, Watch Dogs and Destiny, isn't Volition holding out for a next or cross-gen launch?
um what about the classic, the great Red Faction 1
That came out the following spring and it was awesome.
i want a hd remake of Red Faction 1 and 2.
Or maybe the Summoner sucked.
I remember Summoner,was my first rpg on ps2. Wasn't bad at all, tons of side quests.
What are you talking about? Even Knights Of The Old Republic straight up stole their innovative combat system and the story was damn good. The only flaw for the game was graphics, that's it.
Agreed. Summoner was actually pretty good. Part 2 is the one that sucked. Wasn't this a launch title?
The summoner was my launch game for PS2. I liked it. Wasn't great, but nowhere near horrible. The cities where so damn big yet had terrible draw distance aided by fog. You ran aimlessly across endless brick. Till you find a structure.
Awesome memories! Good game or not, up to Summoner everyone was complaining about jaggies and shimmer with the all powerful PS2. Summoner was supposed to be a break through and the boards at beyond3d and elsewhere lit up when James Hague said the Volition team had figured how to run full scene anti aliasing with a "negligible hit on the game's performance". While their method didn't end up guaranteeing that PS2 software would never have jaggies or shimmer again, the mood and talk at the time were energized for sure. Great memories and amusing to consider how in a lot of ways, "the more things change, the more they stay the same". Love being a long time gamer.
Its pretty simple actually. The install base on the current gen is large. For a smaller studio to make money, it can't afford to wait another year, and risk low sales on a platform that will only have a few million units in the wild.
Yeah Im like, huh I liked The Summoner.
