Naughty Dog talks about how the upcoming sequel is more open and there isn't one "golden path" players have to stick to. Does it open a can of worms?
I am pretty sure they will balance it right. Why are we mentioning Assassins Creed here? Ubisoft releases the game on a yearly bases to make as much profit as they can and Unity proved it with is disastrous bugs, but ND takes their time crafting a masterpiece and make sure we get the best possible product they can deliver and i am pretty sure it will be amazing.
Assassin's Creed Unity has nothing to do with that, it's a completely open world game, so it's in a different category. Uncharted 4 will have a certain "openess", but it's not that kind of openess either It's just like in the Splinter Cell series, which is the first thing that comes to my mind, which is a good thing and I love to hear it, I love when games do this. Having that said, Naughty Dog's new game is not going to be very different from previous entries, so there isn't absolutely nothing to be worried about.
Lol and the trend continues ANY AAA ps4 exclusive lets try to make speculation in a negative way...even though the game isnt out for a long while yet...the bloodborne being too easy (though the devs clearly stated it was dumbed down for demo purposes)article shows the depth of retardness these sites will go to for hits when it comes to ps4 games So thats the order,bloodborne and now un uncharted.... There will be more folks dont worry
Does it open a can of worms? If by that you mean a can of delicious gummy worms then yes. i read the article and it does have a couple good points but i think TLOU showed us that ND is capable of doing a more open linear approach
"Assassin's Creed can run into problems because the environment is so huge and open." They also run into problems cause Ubisoft.
i don't think the openness was what lead to the flaws in Unity, it was the myriad amount of scripting needed to run the NPC crowds in that large environment that can complicate things. Uncharted only needs to mooks to script in the open environment...
They had to rebuild their game engine for this current gen. Deadlines were too tight to compensate for QC
yea and i COULD get laid this weekend. neither are that likely.
Uncharted and technical flaws don't belong in the same sentence.
Seriously tired of articles downplaying The Order and Uncharted 4. If anyone has played Uncharted then you know you're in for a quality experience. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Naughty Dog making it? Oh right no need to worry.
Well, although The Last of Us is linear, it did have some open levels too. I experienced very few technical flaws in this game. I have complete faith that Naughty Dog has enough pride in its product and its name to release a complete game. That means a game that is complete and patch free on day 1
Oh boy here we go. First it was The Order, then Bloodborne, and now Uncharted. Seriously? What is with all the concern trolling? Since when have any of these three developers released anything but a quality video game? Especially in the technical aspect?
Yea..I am sure a site known as psxextreme will write a negative troll piece pertaining to a PS4 exclusive. They only gave Uncharted 3 a perfect 10. http://www.psxextreme.com/p... I like it how all of a sudden when a few articles have some concern for PS4 games..regardless of the source, everyone is the enemy because the mighty PS4 exclusives are all flawless and can't be criticized. Eyes roll. Game journalism are just opinion pieces like any media as each person can have a different viewpoint to his/her view on things. It is like if Rolling Stone were to write a preview for a new album for a perticular artist. The artist is trying something new from its previous records, and they said they have some concerns about it. Does that mean the new album will automatically suck? Of course not and we just have to wait for when the music or movies of games to come out to get a proper perspective on how we view the game for ourselves. It is no dufferent than Dualshockers wrote that The Order 1886 is innovative. LOL, and where were you when Abraiel proclaimed that? After all, isn't that also an opinion..even if it is positive rather than negative?
'sn't that also an opinion..even if it is positive rather than negative?' Yep and A TON of comments were criticisms of Abraiel and you find it 'fair' So why don't you find it fair when there are comments cirtical of articles going the other way? Yea people have opinions and it seems to me kinda narrow minded to criticize people for expressing their disagrement. OT I think ridiculous calling out 'flaws' even before they see any sign of it
OB1 biker, LOL. You failed to mention the part in which Abraiel was discrediting other peoples' opinion on his heading. That is why we give Dualshockers no respect because of the shady way in which they write journalist articles to fit his agenda. If someone is part of the gaming journalist community, I would be upset if someone is disregarding my opinion at the expense of making an article about it. Most of the negative comments on that article were pertaining to this matter I had just explained. Dualshockers: "The Order: 1886 Is Actually Quite Innovative; Time to Shelve that Boring, Generic Excuse to Bash it" Is totally different than: "Uncharted 4's "Openness" Could Result In Technical Flaws" The later is talking about their concern that something might not be right by changing up a formula to a tried and tested gameplay that the series is known for. They never attack other peoples' opinions and their concern is stickly theirs. The former is just plain "click bait" mumbo jumbo and attacking other peoples' viewpoint. Unprofessional.
I'm not having any discussion about Dualshockers here that's completely off topic. But I think its fair to disagree about this type of article about 'concerns' if you see what I mean. Disagree with any commment or article but Fox comment is perfectly valid and agree to disagre
A few articles? Obviously you haven't been on n4g in the last few days. There's been at least 5 articles a day bashing some PS exclusive that hasn't even released yet. To be honest, it gets really annoying, regardless the website that is concerned. Not to mention all the articles that popped up about a supposed "downgrade" for uncharted gameplay. What a load of sh!t. It's not hard to see the concern trolling from fanboys and "journalists" alike. Also, the one about Bloodborne? Laughable at best. They were concerned it's going to be "too easy" because they played it at a gaming event, in which it is universally known to have easier difficulty for players to jump in to. People are "concerned" with the order because they think it's not innovative enough. Or how it has QTEs. Yet eerily similar games on different platforms don't have people lined up worrying and being concerned about those games. Now it's uncharted....again. PRE ALPHA footage was shown, in all of its OPENNESS, and still performed better than 95% of finished games and people are "concerned" about technical and graphical issues? It's almost comical. If you fail to see the chain of hate articles for PS exclusives, then I pity you. Not that other games don't have people spreading fud about them, but it's obvious that there a great deal more for Sony games. Your morning dish of reality
Yeah that Rolling Stone analogy doesn't really work, because they never really mention worst case scenarios for projects because they know its a futile cause. Journalists and their wacky "predictions" are pretty rare in media coverage. Typically a previewer would talk about the potential goal of a piece or its potential strengths by looking at the only solid source it has: History. Look at Naughty Dog's history of solid & stable games and you see no cause for concern. Look at RAD & Santa Monica's development history and you also see a pretty spotless record full of great games. Look at Miyazaki's development record on the Souls series & his comments about Bloodborne & again, you see very challenging, quality games. Can great studios screw up? Certainly, but there's no real reason to assume these things will happen unless there's some kind of solid evidence that would point in that direction. Nelva's piece wasn't about the prospect of The Order or some intangible thing, he based his article solely off of the facts available up to this point. RAD created brand new tech for their engine for The Order, hence an innovative tagline. He never said the game would be golden perfection, only that the whole idea of what "innovative" means has been turned on its head. The problem w/ these early "concerns" is the fact that they are coloring the experiences of potential fans. I've seen far too many people read reviews of movies, go to see it looking for these specific flaws, then come out & regurgitate everything they've read verbatim, even when there's no real merit to the criticisms once taken as a whole, and typically missing out on the best aspects of a film because they are so busy looking for "plot holes" or "poor characterization". This is one of the reasons we are probably living in a time where a lot of cult classics will be made, products shunned by the culture for perceived flaws pointed out initially by a couple of critics then ballooned into public opinion, yet championed by a handful who ultimately are justified in their fandom when people get back around to seeing these projects w/ fresh eyes & less of a preconceived notion of what they are viewing.
The whole press isn't doing it but I agree that some sites have been attacking PlayStation exclusives a lot lately. I really have no idea why its as if these people want the games to fail.
If people pay attention to the sites that create negative buzz for PS4 exclusives, most of them have one thing in common; You'll never see anything else written by them that's even remotely related to gaming in the days after the release of a PS4 exclusive. "Guest" writers and volunteers are usually the source of some of these ridiculous stories. I guarantee that negative articles about Bloodborne will start popping up starting the last week of February, I guess the clickbait trolls/Nintendo/PC/Xbox fanboys have too many "true" PS4 exclusives to take on all at once. Watch as the hate rains down on this post and their will be no doubt as to where any of it is coming from.
A lot of negative info starting to spill on this for some reason.. Hope it's good or won't be picking up a ps4
Leave the masters be and let them do their work. They're world class developers. They don't need some scrub journalist trying to convince people otherwise.
and the hate continues
