ReCore was one of the most disappointing games of 2016, so why are its developers taking a victory lap with a prestige re-release?
Because it's their last chance to make some $$$, it felt like this game was the best they could do and they failed.
People should know that recore in 4k resolution will be amazing because 4k makes any game a lot better. Quantum break will be a lot better in 4k and deserves a higher metacritic score because it'll be in 4k on Scorpio. /s\
Right, all they can hype is 4K because they don't have any games. A sad mismanagement of the Scorpio launch unless we hear about some stuff that is actually exciting at E3.
"Quantum break will be a lot better in 4k and deserves a higher metacritic score because it'll be in 4k on Scorpio." You know you'd buy the Order 1886 if it was in 4k. people will buy whatever they want with their money.
Record was finished just unpolished you commoners.
I don't get the downvotes, it's like people quickly hit the downvote tab before reaching the end and seeing /s Then again, this is N4G, I don't expect much intelligence out of most of the community members, most are just idiots, trolls and fanboys who try to stay undercover as much as possible.
I really hope your being sarcastic. I'll take Mass Effect 1 and 2 in S video, over Andromeda in 8k. Game play makes games better, not resolution. Hence Driver's Club and The Order, both beautiful games bUT early Sony garbage! !
Modelgod Ofcourse he is being sarcastic that's why he put an "s" at the end of his comment^^
So now, people are making jokes about a game having a higher resolution, implying it is meaningless? But a couple years ago, you couldn't look at N4G without 7 of the top 10 stories being about _____ game having a higher resolution on PS4 than XB1, and all of these articles were filled with 240 comments of people saying you'd have to be a stupid idiot to buy the lower res version because it is CLEARLY going to be a lesser experience. You people, I swear.... Ugh.
How's does 4K make any game better when the gameplay is still dull Gameplay > graphics
Here comes the trolls. lol!! https://s-media-cache-ak0.p...
You mean people with a objective opinion and sating some pretty good opinions. And the best you can do in rebuttal is to call people names and put a lol. Thats showing people that are making a coherent outtake on things.
Utalkin2me, you mean like the guy saying that as long as itsin 4k it'll be a better game? Sad seeing how misguided the younger gaming generation is. Like they don't crave good video games at all... Just visuals.
@Utalkin2me There will be a few of those, but anything Microsoft or XBox Games instantly brings out a slew of trolls on this site. Fact. It's quite obviously that ReCore wasn't a completed game and rushed to market.
Again, neither one of you are adding to the discussion and trying to stir the pot. Ohhh the irony.
Comcept and Inafune have been really disappointing sadly. Only game I liked from them was soul sacrifice. Hope they'll be able to make a good game in the future though, fingers crossed for a soul sacrifce 2.
I second you on that. Soul sacrifice delta is an extremely underrated game.
Best game on Vita imo
Truth! It's sad that Comcept are known for screwing up Mighty Number 9 more so than making Soul Sacrifice. I platinumed them both, great games
As are other games from them that do have a following.
Soul sacrifice e was my favourite game on vita.
the vita is dead and no where in this article is mentioned about the platform...
Soul Sacrifice was one of those games that I spent a ton of time on, both solo and with friends and the community. That game hit the mark in so many ways, it begs the question of why they didn't continue that basis for their subsequent titles. I enjoyed Recore for what it was, but yeah, it was somewhat disappointing. No way I'll pay twice for something that basically fixes what should have been in the original release that many of us paid $40 US for.
Does this mean there will be a 'Definitive Edition' of Quantum Break as well?
Well, I really liked Quantum Break, but I don't tend to buy games more than once. Would be great for those who haven't got to experience the game yet.
That would be awesome. Love time travel. Gunplay was fun. Could've used a heck of a lot more of that and enemy variety. Would've loved to have fought the creatures that the journals talk about being around at the end of time. Forget what they're called.
Maybe it's the complete edition literally
Some insider on NeoGaf said something to that effect: http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Sell us the unfinished copy, then sell the finished copy. Brilliant.
Thats how they get you. Im kinda envious of their "stones" though. They have to know this is gonna get some negative feedback but I guess they said "screw it". Moneys money.
😂😂😂 i wouldn't be surprised if that was the idea all along.
I didn't buy the first edition and I'm not buying the Definitely Edition either. They game is still buggy and unfinished.
How do you know??? Right nvm. Someone else said so right?
What? It's not buggy and unfinished smh you people are really the worst.
@EatCrow, nativegoku I read about it online. Maybe you guys should too. https://www.youtube.com/wat... http://www.shacknews.com/ar... Even Microsoft say the game is missing content, even though it's on the game box. Now go and eat your crow.
ReCore is a game that needed to be delayed by 6 plus months. If ReCore released in Spring to early summer, it would of been a more polished game.The general consensus was that ReCore has good gameplay, but bad performance( like many Unity Games) and weak graphics. A more polished ReCore would likely have scored well above the 60s on metacritic, and probably gotten more sales. Phil Spencer/Xbox royally screwed up ReCore. MIcrosoft underfunded the title, used the notoriously inefficient Unity Engine ( the first Party Halo engine would of been better), forced a PC version to test crossbuy, and finally didn't delay the title. I only played the thirty minute trial of ReCore, and had fun with the tile, but didn't buy it. If by some miracle the definitive edition of ReCore, is significantly improved from the vanilla version. I may look into the title again.
You do bring up a very good point in that MS should make better use of the Halo Engine by branching it outside of IPs outside of Halo (take a page out of Guerrilla Games' book with what they've accomplished with the Decima Engine). Unity (in more ways than not) is better suited for mobile games. The Halo Engine would have made for a far more suitable engine for a game like Recore.
Yah Unity is one of the most inefficient licensed engines out there. I think Unity, only maintains popularitty, due to it being cheap. Unity games on console, currently don't run as well as they should. As for Halo, I think 343i might be working on new Engine by now. The studio can only optimize, and modify the Halo Reach engine so much. 343i, should do a few titles outside of Halo after Halo 6. They seem well suited for other MS IPs, like Perfect Dark and Jet Force Gemini, if they hired some additional talent. ReCore running on Halo Reach engine, would of easily ran at 60 FPS, with dynamic resolution and with better textures, effects and lighting, than the Unity build does.
@Sciurus_vulgaris I think the main reason for Unity's popularity is that it is much easier to learn for most people. It's more intuitive and less confusing than Unreal for beginners, so it ends up being much easier to find Unity developers than developers for other game engines.
You underfunded facts. So much BS.
I think Unity is popular for a lot of small devs thanks to the asset store. I have a friend developing a game by himself, so the fact that he can go into the Unity Asset Store and pick up a few systems/texture packs/etc that are already built & refined that he doesn't have to build from the ground up is basically vital. I would also suspect that that is what could cause the inefficiency: plugging in a bunch of disparate coding bases from plugins and, if chosen or incorporated poorly, could require quite a bit of extra overhead. The base Unity seems efficient enough and looks decent enough to my eyes though.
smh, what is going on at MS this gen? This is basically the WORST gen they've been in. This is just getting pathetic. So they've yet to release any IP this gen that is NEAR the caliber of when they released Gears Of War last gen?
It's why they're pushing features and services now, and reminding gamers how much better the 360 was by promoting old games so hard, over brand new and exclusive games.
Things aren't looking good for Comcept's Red Ash
After Might No 9, I've lost all faith in that team to do anything. Not buying Red Ash. It "looks" good, but clearly, that means nothing if the team is just crap. I was hoping M9 would be great, but it only shows that maybe we wanted such great things and they just couldn't deliver.
Here is a great idea, don't buy it. No one is forcing anyone to buy any game or DLC. We just like to come to game forums, act outraged when you had no intention of buying said game or DLC anyway.
shhh don't tell em
Just wait, this time next year Mass Effect Andromeda will get it's Gold edition and it will only then be in Beta.
I played this the other day at a friends house, and i thought it was ok, it's very Metroid Prime in 3rd person lol
I actually enjoyed the game, yeah it had some issues here and there but overall a fun experience. I recommend it if you are into old school games like Metroid or MegaMan legends.
I really liked the game, sure it was rough at launch but it got better and if they continue to improve it. Fine by me. I hope it's a free upgrade for everyone who bought Recore or like Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition, which also came with more content, where you pay a small amount to upgrade to it.
I liked the game
Oh we've reached a new low now
I thought this game was awsome until I got to the end and it made u do all that backtracking. Made it go from an 8 to a 6 in my book
Scorpio Sequel and in 4K , Nice
No way it gets a sequel after the way it sold
Yes sales were not great , but continued support by MS/Xbox keeps the IP on its platform . Make the sequel with all the info that was gathered regarding the first can be used to make the sequel awesome .
Didn't you know? That is how games are made these days. Release a broken half finished game @ $60. Then release the patch under the title of "Definitive Edition" and charge another $60.
Recore was one of the reasons I bought a Bone. As a HUGE Metroid Prime fan I was hoping for greatness. Turned out to be more like Other M than Prime unfortunately ;,-(
This game came out?? lol damn
Don't worry. Even xbox fanbase forgot.
Because it will get 4k 60fps ultra setting support. Non of that Chinese checkerboard trick.
Come on man don't be a troll it's not cool or funny it's pathetic and all it does is make people remember your s/n and ignore you in the future
Because of $$$
This console generation sucks
Such a great game, it didn't get the respect it deserved. It was a nice fresh new IP that had the feel of a Metroid game. I REALLY hope they make a sequel (but with co-op).
*Whew* Let me guess.... it was underrated, it should've been rated 10 points higher on the scale. None of its bugs, technical mishaps, mechanical issues or lack of content were a reason why it was "disrespected", nope..... it just deserved more respek, because Pistols said so... oh and because it was an Xbox exclusive.
Is that what I said, or are you still unable to see past your fanboy goggles? You've never even played this game, why do you care? Are you just always negative in your life? You must have no friends. Note: Bugs, mechanical issues and Technical mishaps are the same thing...I get that you were trying really hard to build an offense against the game, but I think you just meant "bugs"...which were MASSIVELY overblown. I didn't find it had a lack of content at all, it took me longer to beat than UC4 (which is great cause it cost 2/3 the price and had better gameplay)...infact I STILL haven't completed all the dungeons. The only legit complaint you could have made was load times...and even that was fixed less than a month after release. All you are REALLY doing is proving that you have no clue what you are talking about, and trying really hard to trash a game BECAUSE it is an Xbox exclusive...grow up kid.
"Fanboy goggles" is nothing to do with what I said. I was mocking someone's history of downplaying Sony exclusives by saying that they deserve to be rated 10 points lower on the scale, and upselling Xbox exclusives saying that they deserve to be rated 10 points higher on the scale no matter what. The egregious lies told to downplay Sony exclusives like Uncharted 4 tell a story, and here you are still downplaying it. First up, I don't think you have a way to know I've not played this game. Is that seriously your go to answer when somebody criticises something Xbox? Sad. Secondly, I was actually smiling whilst writing this comment recounting your aforementioned history. I'm not negative in my life but thanks for your concern. Do you really feel so insecure that I'm in an Xbox article handing you a dose of reality that I'm wholly negative? Are you really using this immature pre-school insult of "no friends"? 😂 Bugs and mechanical issues are not the same thing. Technical mishaps is the only point you have, but I guess I was just driving the point home that ReCore has plenty of issues that were completely valid in reviews and extend beyond your additional lies about the only problem being load times. Sorry to break it to you but I'm not the only gamer out there who wasn't besotted with this game like you, and it's nothing to do with it being Xbox exclusive that people pointed out its numerous faults.
