Candleman is making its way to the PS4.
Admin update: Yeah, changed the source since we don't need to act like this was some major exclusive and Microsoft is losing something.
78 on Metacritic isn’t something I’d boast as critically acclaimed
I'll be honest I've never heard of this game.
Same here. Still not interested.
@Neonridr: Yeah. Honestly would like to know why you're getting disagrees about this being anything than an okay game.
Yup, never knew of this one. Lmao at the article's title change 😂
Thank you so much for being honest
the hate on here is strong, what because its from an indie dev who would only afford one console and it was msoft, and now everyone boasts about not knowing a thing about it... lol the game was great and the devs suported it way after launch with free dlc that concludes the game's story. Beautiful indie title, great story and something you never played. This devs deserves support, not this stupid sony bashing previous exclusives agenda. Grow up, most of you guys look pathetic, and resentful.
@strife I'm only stating the truth and before the article was even edited they made it out like it was some sort of huge heavy hitter that Microsoft just lost which is why I said I never heard of the game if it was supposedly a huge title as stated by the article Whether it's good or not I couldn't tell you because I haven't played it.
well it is a Playstation site.. so their words (shrug) looks ok, but nothing I would write home about.
@ Nitro Indeed this went under most people’s radar @ Neo I bet the only reason they’re saying it’s critically acclaimed is to make it a big deal that a previously unheard of game that was on XO is moving onto PS4.
Never heard of it until now lol
thought I would have heard of it seeing as how it's critically acclaimed
I wouldn’t boast about being critically acclaimed at any score. A rushed review for clicks isn’t exactly science.
Critics don't matter anymore. There have been a few articles bouncing around about how review scores just don't matter. Audiences, consumers, etc, just don't listen to them, if they ever did.
The game looks like an interesting idea.
78 is considered bad? Also, is this a game that MS lost for Xbox, or is it just a game that is being announced as coming to PS4?
It was released on Xbox a year ago so it's now coming to PS
It's the candle guy from Disney's Beauty and The Beast.
Never heard of it until today.
78 is well above average. And by Meta's standards it's generally favorable, so I can see why it would be considered acclaim.
So u are saying basically an 8/10 is bad?
Appearantly it’s been out for a year. First I’ve heard of this critically acclaimed indie exclusive. The author seems very excited.
Chris, so a game must be 91 or better to be critically acclaimed?
It got good reviews, not great, but good. Does every game need to be Zelda to be "critically acclaimed"?
Well, at least 90+, right? This isn't close to that while tons of other games that are widely considered critically acclaimed are.
Excellent more games thanks
Omg you play as a candle lol Never heard of this game, doesn't look bad though.
No thanks, let em keep it
Candleman sounds like a Megaman boss. lol
I find Candleman criminally underrated. Plus, it is one of the best China developed games of 2017. I mean, I gotta be honest. Aside from Icey, not a lot of chinese games on the PS4 are something that I would call "remarkable" (Dying Reborn, I'm looking at you), though Light Tracer was pretty decent, even if it isn't perfect. So I'm glad that this is coming to the PS4.
And yet another video game website can't grasp the concept of a timed exclusive.
Sadly, think it says something that some feel that MS needs defending for "loosing" this.
A candle simulator. Lol. Interesting.
A platformer where the character is a candle.
What...cups are OK, but not candles? Don't hate on the candles. :)
From the name, I thought it would be a horror game. But it's totally not a horror game. I don't even know what I just watched.
Have seen this in the xbox store and it always looked interesting. Just never wanted to put money down on it. Looked cool though
What happens if you say Candleman 3 times
Your little candle will be on fire.
I am curious to know what the original title of this news was. 😐
When was this announced for Xbox?
After looking up about it I found that it was on Xbox One about a year ago as the release date they have was 31/1/17
I would rather be stuck on the toilet then play that.
Hopefully they will release a Switch port next, so you won't be forced to make that choice.
How come I’d never heard of this one before? Looks awesome!
Well, that was illuminating.
It looks meh but it's something different that someone will fine interesting that owns a PS4.
Get a candle up ya Sony.
What is this 30fps NIGHTMARE?
Lol the article name got changed. Yesterday it said "Critically acclaimed Xbox platformer no longer exclusive, announced for PS4" ...hmmm that explains the 900+ degrees, lmao.
