Well, it’s that time again! Retro Studios are looking to hire themselves a new AI engineer.
Never been a big fan of Donkey Kong, so im hoping for something new.
I wouldn't mind Donkey Kong... in something new. But I'm bored of the same template Rare used in the 90s. I say bring on something entirely new, something unique, which uses the Wii U and Retro's artists abilities to the max!
New IP please
A new IP would be nice, for sure. That being said, I'm totally buying Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze day one. :3
Must be for that second team making metroid.
Nope. Retro next game is Donkey kong open world. http://www.nintendolife.com...
Thats why i said the second team.
where in that article does it say that their next game is a DK one? That article simply speaks about how Retro builds future games off of similar approaches regardless of genre. No where does it say that Metroid won't be the next game.
Your reading comprehension is funny here. Nowhere in that article you posted do they confirm they are making a 3D DK game, nor a Metroid one, for that matter. They're all just talking hypothetically.
Metroid! Metroid! Metroid!
I am a big fan of DKC series but ok......I would prefer a hole new Metroid for 3DS!!!! And one for Wii U of course.
A third Donkey Kong Country game?! I kill myself if that happens again.
Why all the Donkey Kong hate? Retro had there run in reviving the metroid series in fantastic fashion so its only fair there creative genius reaches new nintendo IP'S
We don't hate Donkey Kong but we want something different....If they could make another Donkey Kong and same time a Metroid that would be perfect. But if they develop a title every 3-4 years, I would prefer metroid this time.
I'd love a Donkey Kong 3D World/Land type game. 1st things 1st tho, a new Metroid game.
Funny how you condemn them for the possibility of making a third Donkey Kong game, yet you demand another Metroid, despite the fact that they already made three Metroid Prime games in a row. Double standards much?
Donkey Kong Country, I mean. They are just wasting potential making more platformer games. I'd be happy if they make a 3D DK game. I'd prefer Metroid or something new though.
Has to be Metroid... they need it.
Cool, looking forward to whatever it is they do come up with. Funny thought on the 'not Donkey Kong' whining - Rare released the three DKC games in 1994, 1995 and 1996. Those are now viewed as a classic trilogy.
Damn those were some awesome games, last one was a little iffy but you know a game is really good when each one are alike in almost every way hut still feels new
Country 3 was awesome. Baby kong could bounce on water like a jesus ape. and you could also choose between multiple worlds at a certain point. Not just an A-B-C formula, but an A-C-B-E-D if that's how you wanted
Just a Hunch- It also sounds more like a FPS focus because many of the bosses in Metroid Prime were more Pattern Driven. The bosses in DK Country are more pattern Driven too; they would already have the tool-set necessary to make the previous MP's. But FPS's are generally more AI driven (not always good AI). (I also take in account past Interviews, them saying that if they did another MP they would like to expand the universe and focus on the Hunters too. (See MP3 and NDS's FPS "Metroid Prime: Hunters" for reference). Youtube Video of DS's MP:Hunters: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
You do realise they can just use a giant portion of the Gamecube/Wii metroid prime code base right? It also runs on the Wii U.
The switch between HDTV and SDTV would make that more difficult than you make it seem.
No it doesn't. Gamelogic such as A.I. and game mechanics are largely decoupled from Rendering code.
Then your comments and phrasing makes even less sense to me. Metroid 1-3 used Patterns above complicated AI... I guess They could re-use that code- even though the bosses will me different and the fight will be different- BUT if it is going to focus or emphasize the FPS qualities in the MP's - Also Focus on other Player like NPC characters- -Then they will need more complicated AI. Note: I am not disrespecting MP 1-3 I own all of them and have played all of them and I would play another. Beyond this the WiiU can handle more processes than the Wii- so the AI can be more complex than previously possible.
I don't see how "FPS focused" = "Less patterns". Metroid prime was very FPS focused with all the scanning and what not. And normal enemies hardly had any patterns. In Prime 3 they took cover and such It's not like they were completely brain dead. What I'm saying is that they can expand on the code base they have now. I'm not saying they should only use what they already have.
OK Thanks for explaining, I see what you mean. I guess technically it is all patterns- put I was making a point about adaptability- AI being able to out think the player according to the player's style. And yes, MP3 more FPS focused than previous more AI but we both seem to agree that it would, should, and will go further in the AI Department (if it is a FPS). And I think we both agree that a F.P.Adventure w/ Strong FPS elements is good too. "Interesting" votes to all of your comments.
They are making a No more heroes X Bayonetta crossover game soooooo obvious.
Dude, that does not make sense. Stop saying completely absurd things. It's obvious that Retro Studios is working in Half Life 3.
I hope its a new ip or perhaps an old nintendo ip like mach rider, star fox, or star tropics. I wouldn't mind if they did another Metroid, but I don't want them to give up on DKC series either considering the series had made them the most dough. If they do make another DK, I hope it is 3D and it is as difficult as the 2D DK games.
Big freaking deal. It probably isn't for what we all want anyway...just shut up and show me something. Quit making us guess. It's driving me psychotic, having to guess all of the time.
they need to make a new 3d donkey kong or star fox game like star fox assault metroid would be nice tho. but nintendo needs to also hire precursor games as a first party developer and keep them.
Sounds very interesting. In the end of the day its inevitable, Nintendo wants to stop the bleeding and the worst mistake any business/company can do is loose consumer trust. Pushing for more games be it for next year or years down the road, you work on it now, show something at e3 or Nintendo direct and get people excited. Even if the games are years off at least we have confidence something good is coming. Nintendo just showing the consumer they are serious in pushing the WiiU to heights unimaginable with incredible games is the way they will get back the consumer. Better for us the gamers and better for Nintendo at the moment during it damage control period. Let us know their stuff being put on the table, ideas and imagination becoming constructed. Sometimes they are to secretive
