Platinum Games has three titles on the show floor this year with at least one more in the works being saved for Gamescom, and each one is a major achievement in its own way.
I was really hoping for Vanquish 2 after they teased a screenshot from the first game.
That screen of starfox looks a tad better. Wow a transformer game, sweet!
It worries me that they are focused on so many games. Hope they don't stretch themselves out too much and quality suffers.
Don't really see the hype about Platinum Games. They're more quantity than quality imo. Apart from Bayonetta they pretty much make average scoring games.(and there was that avatar game). Nothing bad about average though.
Metal Gear Rising: 83, 82, 80 Vanquish: 84 Bayonetta: 90, 87, 86 Bayonetta 2: 91 The Wonderful 101: 78 The Legend of Korra: 64, 54, 49 MadWorld: 81 Infinite Space: 75 Anarchy Reigns: 73, 71 As you can see, the only "average" game here is Legend of Korra (using the full review scale). Everything else ranges from "good" to "great". My personal favorite (by far) is Wonderful 101, which is absolutely fantastic, and it "only" has an 78 metascore. Now, a question: have you ever played any of Platinum's games?
70-85 is an average game score not sure if you know. And to answer your question yes I have played the horrible Korra game and the average Vanquish and Metal Gear Rising. Vanquish has potential to be a 90+ game. Would love to see how they handled a sequel.
70-85 is not an average score. You're the one who doesn't understand it. Average means "regular", "mediocre", "middle". You know what the middle of 100 is? Hint: it's not 70, let alone 85.
Do I really need to pull out the dictionary on people???? Average: a single value (as a mean, mode, or median) that summarizes or represents the general significance of a set of unequal values. The average game does not score a frickin 50! Most games score between 70 and 85... THAT'S AVERAGE!
I'm really excited for Star Fox and NieR, and still waiting for Vanquish 2...
I had no idea Platinum was handling the new StarFox.
They are, but Miamoto is still at the helm for the core design choices. It seems to be turning out as a match made in heaven.
Yep, a big reason I said nothing bad about Star Fox! lol
Hey, about time PlayStation got a piece of that exclusive Platinum pie!
Uh…did you not hear about Nier?
Can not wait for Nier. The first was just too amazing and fun and so under loved. It was the last game in the world I expected to hear a sequel of. Biggest and best surprised of E3
Can't wait for Star Fox Zero. Seeing the Star Fox level in Bayonetta 2 was refreshing.
I like Platinum but Star Fox looks very crappy with severely outdated graphics and intrusive gimmicky controls
That's a lie! Star Fox looks exactly how I always imagined it would look if they ever decided to return to the series following the beloved design of StarFox 64. The graphics are par for the course, same as any other game on the system. People are just parroting what they hear others say. There is nothing wrong with the graphics. It looks identical to the sections in Bayonetta 2, and nobody was throwing a hissy fit about that. And those "intrusive, gimmicky controls" are a simple combination of analog and gyro, which as we've seen with Splatoon, is FAR superior to the dated control schemes that we see everywhere else. Especially for this type of game. It's like comparing the precision of a computer mouse to analog. Gyro/analog combo wins in both ease of use and precision every time. There's nothing intrusive or gimmicky about that. Only stubborn gamers who refuse to open their minds to anything other than how they've done things for the last 20 years, the same archaic way they were doing it back in 1989. Maybe it's time to quit parroting what you hear everyone else on the Internet say and come up with some ideas of your own. If you actually watch the footage in 720P YouTube videos, you'll discover that the textures are actually rather impressive! In the background look amazing with the planets and everything. Not saying the game should win any awards in the graphics department but by God it certainly isn't "severely outdated"! And all you whiners were flipping your sh** about Nintendo releasing all these games that didn't use the gamepad. Now they use it in a very meaningful way that actually ADDS to the gameplay, and you want to complain that the gamepad is being used. What is wrong with people like you?
Starfox looks horrible just compare it to other wiiu games Its ugly as sin.
uh because it started as a Wii game. Much like Pikmin 3 the final product will look much better.
Man, click on the article please and scroll down. The game does not look bad at all....get your eyes checked...Nintendo is hit or miss with trailers. Most times the games look 10 times better than their trailers. They rarely pre-render and simply don't spend too much time on trailers...
Nope you can see that starfox has amazing visuals there not polished to a Nintendo standard as of yet but hey Nintendo clean up visuals last in development so all I'm saying is the art they went for had to match Starfox64 so with that in mind the game looks amazing the airwing looks cool you can see fox in there when it's flying around lve it,and when it's been polished to perfection and shown on a new Direct before release you will see this.
The footage live from the nintendo treehouse looks alot better but with a holiday release date the visuals are not going get that much better. They will probably spend more time actually designing levels and getting the game to run at 60. It defintely is a let down, star fox should look as good as 3D world. In a perfect world it would rival the new ratchet and clank in terms of visuals. Even so the star fox team is back so I really can't complain.
