Introducing ‘Knack’ PS4 | Knack Preview XPStar

XPStar:
PlayStation 4‘s Craziest Launch Exclusive

Between PS4 and Xbox One, a heaping helping of big names will be launching alongside the new consoles. Killzone, Forza, other ball-busting exclusives to one side or the other. This is a crucial concept for those that face the choice between systems, as will the imminent Halo, Gran Turismo and so forth later.

The story is too old to be commented.

I have seen TLOU and this game seems like a step backwards.
There is nothing in this game that could not have been done on the previous gen.

Feel free to disagree, but please tell me why?

edit @lukas

First of all, please stop stalking me. I was already forced to block you from PM.

Secondly, after seeing Halo 4 and TLOU I have no doubt the previous gen would be able to simulate the physics of knack, no problem.

I guess what you are saying is that Knack >>> TLOU?
Is that what you are saying?
Really? do you really want to commit to that? I know scores of people that would crucify you for saying that...

Whoa. Big call buddy. Good luck with that. I am not seeing it.
Perhaps i need to borrow your ps4 fanboy goggles?

GarrusVakarian1470d ago (Edited 1470d ago )

I disagreed and ill tell you why just like you asked.

Firstly, there's no way current gen would be able to simulate the physics of the main character when he dissembles and reassembles from tons of individual parts.

Secondly, there's no way current gen would be able to run it at native 1080p while looking like Disney animation.

There's 2 reasons to combat your "nothing". It may not be your kind of game (not mine either) but you should probably research it before you comment. Its a throwback to the oldschool platformer, comparing it to TLOU makes zero sense.........

Nice PM by the way, can't accept you are wrong about me so you block me and call me an "****hole"....LOL. Some people.

"edit @lukas

Which one is it? You asked me to tell you why i disagreed and i did, now you don't want me to reply to you. That's the 2nd time you have displayed sour grapes at being proven wrong.

"I guess what you are saying is that Knack >>> TLOU? "

LMAO, WHAT?! When did i say that? I really do not envy your reading skills, i explained why Knack could not run on current gen, just like you asked. I made no such comparison to TLOU....as a matter of fact YOU are the one who did so "I have seen TLOU and this game seems like a step backwards. ". Are you feeling ok? I think you are mixing my words with your own.

Lets ask Mark Cerny, see if he thinks Knack could run on current gen at native 1080p.....i think know the answer already.

BBBirdistheWord1470d ago (Edited 1470d ago )

jesus, lukas.. nice edit! and nice double post. Did I upset you?

Good way to save face bud.
BTW, here's your quote regarding knack:
"firstly, there's no way current gen would be able to simulate the physics of the main character when he dissembles and reassembles from tons of individual parts."

What a joke. Of course the current gen can do it.
Halo4 and TLOU are proof. If you disagree, you are plainly saying knack is better than TLOU. Not rocket science.
But now I am repeating myself.
Please keep up.

GarrusVakarian1470d ago (Edited 1470d ago )

@Bird

Last time im replying now because its clear you are just trolling " Did I upset you? ".

There is NO WAY current gen could run the physics for the main character (Knack) at native 1080p while looking like a Disney movie.....no way. TLOU and Halo 4 having great graphics is nothing to do with physics simulations (which is what im talking about). I edit for spelling and grammar mistakes btw ;)

" If you disagree, you are plainly saying knack is better than TLOU. Not rocket science. "

My god, what is wrong with you? That is not what im saying.....not even close. You asked to explain why Knack couldn't run on current gen....so i did. TLOU and Halo 4 shouldn't even be in this discussion. What you are basically saying is "if you disagree with my opinion then you are saying knack is better than TLOU".

When you are proven wrong or challenged in any way you call me an "****hole", block me and tell me i need to take my "PS4 fanboy goggles off". Sigh.

BBBirdistheWord1470d ago (Edited 1470d ago )

my god. what is wrong with you.

Your quotes plainly state:
"Firstly, there's no way current gen would be able to simulate the physics of the main character when he dissembles and reassembles from tons of individual parts"

Yet you go on to say that Knack is not better than TLOU. I noticed you were forced to break down your argument in terms of graphics/physics to technically differentiate your point. Booo. What a copout.

ok I will give you a clue.
Something does not make sense in your statement.

You cannot say that the previous gen is not cabable of running knack without ALSO saying that the TLOU which runs on the previous gen is not as good as Knack. That statement is not logically possible. Big clue.

I look at TLOU and I see a far, far, far superior game than knack, despite your strawman argument. Most gamers would agree, TLOU kicks knack to the kerb. So what is your response? bu.. bu.. bu.. teh knack physics. bu.. bu.. you blocked me.

Is that all you got?

Jesus. Bud.
Get a grip.
Stop with the drugs/alcohol/

You are making no rational sense.

Saying that TLOU could not run the same physics as Knack is not the same as saying Knack is a better game.....i don't understand how you are coming to that conclusion in your head.

What you are saying is that physics in a game determines if its better than another game? MAKES NO SENSE.

I said i wasn't going to reply to you, but you need to be addressed.

"You cannot say that the previous gen is not cabable of running knack without ALSO saying that the TLOU which runs on the previous gen is not as good as Knack. "

That's exactly what im saying. TLOU is one of my favourite games of all time, but i don't think it could run the same physics simulations as Knack...but to you that means that because i think Knack can do ONE THING better than a curren gen game im disregarding every other aspect of TLOU and saying its not as good as Knack.......is that what you are saying? Wow.

"I look at TLOU and I see a far, far, far superior game than knack"

SO DO I! I agree! Im talking STRICTLY physics and native 1080p. Stop being so defensive about TLOU. Saying that TLOU could not run Knacks physics simulation is nowhere near the same thing as saying Knack is a better game.

"Once again. Please stop stalking me, Lukas."

My pleasure, there are plenty of other mature gamers to have mature discussions with without being accused of something that im not even remotely saying. Once again you have proved your immaturity and inability to have an adult discussion by telling me to stop stalking you and name calling.

BBBirdistheWord1470d ago (Edited 1470d ago )

Once again. Please stop stalking me, Lukas.

You are one obsessive PS4fanboy and it is a bit scary!

Muffins12231470d ago

Just stating what everyone here on this site wants you to do...

Twignberries1470d ago (Edited 1470d ago )

@BBBirdistheWord
Stop talking. It's clear you have no understanding of graphics technology if you can't see the next gen rendering, physics, and environmental geometry present in knack. TLOU was a great technical achievement for CURRENT GEN (soon to be last gen), and artistic direction wise, it stomps knack to bits. But if we are purely talking about what's actually going on engine wise, knack is marginally superior. If you don't understand this, then you need an education in computer generated graphics young man..

MysticStrummer1470d ago

Lukas : "Saying that TLOU could not run the same physics as Knack is not the same as saying Knack is a better game"

That's true.

Bird : "You cannot say that the previous gen is not cabable of running knack without ALSO saying that the TLOU which runs on the previous gen is not as good as Knack. That statement is not logically possible."

That makes no damn sense.

Lukas wins.

^^^^^^^^ Best Argument ever^^^^^^^ ......over something silly LOL!

If The Sega Genesis could recreate Nintendo's Hardware Mode7 through it's Software and do Sonic's Rotating stage then I'm 100% sure Knack could be done on the PS3.

Oh wait...Knack rebuilding looks like Sonic losing Rings and about 20 other games where stuff attaches to hte character. Sorry but there is NOT a lot of Physics involved in Knack, many games have done something similar to Knack Character before just not the same EXACT way as the gameplay.

The PS3 could run Knack BUT not with this much Fidelity and Clarity. Knack really shines on the PS4 but could run on the PS3 but would look slightly dull and washed out compared to the PS4 version.

Why are you guys bringing up TLOU? Compare Knack to Ratchet and Clank or some other platformer.

MysticStrummer1470d ago

"Why are you guys bringing up TLOU?"

…and Halo…

Both really odd games to bring up when talking about the physics of all those objects in Knack.

"The PS3 could run Knack BUT not with this much Fidelity and Clarity. Knack really shines on the PS4 but could run on the PS3 but would look slightly dull and washed out compared to the PS4 version. "

That was exactly my point, that current gen could not run knack in native 1080p. But then he started telling me i think knack is better than TLOU!LOL! I don't think ive ever argued with someone as close minded and plain wrong as that guy. He thought that because i was praising knack, i was saying it was better than TLOU.......how some peoples minds work is a mystery to me lol. No idea whatsoever why he brought up TLOU and Halo 4.

Oh well.

remanutd551470d ago

I have my Knack copy already just waiting on my ps4 to arrive to boot up the game and start the adventure. Cant wait!!!!!
