Looks like it will be a little more difficult for Deck 13 to attract Hideo Kojima now, huh?

Palitera988d ago

Still the better game on the company's atrocious record...

AAA games are going into extinction because you gamers refuse to support them.

Kurylo3d988d ago

Maybe they need to go into extinction as we know them. Fact is studios spend millions and millions on building a game that a group of indies can make at 10% of the budget. Sudios these days/publishers just dip into the creative process and thats why all the AAA games we get are copies of copies of copies.

ThunderPulse988d ago

@mikeslemonade I still highly support AAA because I HATE INDIE TITLES 95% OF THE TIME.

MrSwankSinatra988d ago (Edited 988d ago )

@Mikeslemonade, Lords of the Fallen isn't even a AAA game it's actually a mid-tier game in terms of quality. People like to think that the mid-tier has disappeared when in fact Lords of the Fallen is actually a mid-tier game. There is nothing "Great" about LotF it's just okay.

@mikeslemonade

I would hardly call Lords of the Fallen a AAA game. They spent AAA money but the result was not a AAA game.

When I played the game I couldn't even progress a certain point because the game had a game breaking spawning bug.

It was (like many supposed AAA games this generation) under tested.

I don't think the sequel is cancelled. The writer of the article does not seemed to have read the entire statement. Here I have screencapped the whole statement and highlighted the important bit.

It's through Google Translate, but what this sounds like to me is that the publisher is just letting go of the developer and the game. So in other words Lords 2 will still come, they just need to find a new publisher. I could be wrong, but that's what it sounds like to me.

thekhurg987d ago

Lords was one of the best games of 2014. This is disappointing news if true.

breakpad987d ago (Edited 987d ago )

they were ambitious with LoF as it has solid mechanics and graphics but the whateverness of their game's art direction and scenario it killed it....you can say it resemble Souls games but the Japanese are solid and coherent as Rock in their game designs and art..thing that many westerners lack and usually fail

Should not have released in October. New ip with little marketing budget sas always going to underwhelm especially when it doesn't set critics raving

vikingland1988d ago

Sad to hear this. If they had a chance to fix the stuff gamers griped about a second Lotf could've been better. I was one of the few that liked the game.

OB1Biker987d ago

Many, including me, enjoyed the game. Also I find the Dev very cool and thats a real shame if theres no sequel

Scatpants987d ago

I thought the graphics were better than Bloodborne on this. Gameplay wasn't as fun though.

thekhurg987d ago

I thought the gameplay was way better than bloodborne's. In bloodborne all you do is dodge over and over and hit once or twice. Enemies (especially bosses) are there just to soak damage making fights longer than they should be.

WellyUK987d ago

Boss fights on Dark souls 1 & 2 are longer than Bloodbornes...

thekhurg987d ago

@WellyUK

I looked over my post several times, I didn't mention Dark Souls 1 or 2.

So ... don't care that they were longer.

lemoncake987d ago

The price of this game plummeted at record speed, it should not have been released at that time as it just got killed by all the other competing games.
