It definitely looks pretty excellent... I'll probably grab it someday. #8

Just for people who haven't read it, Sony are buying this plant to manufacture chips for their smart phones. They're NOT involving themselves with Nintendo in any way. Title is borderline flamebait. #27

Dammit. I don't think we'll ever see the Vagrant Story sequel now... #2

This sort of looks like a flash-game or something, and the art-direction is kind of sketchy.

Not to say the Dreamcast isn't great, but this game... I don't know. It's on my radar anyway. #3

It was the Ps4 that helped Knack to outsell it, not the game itself. Knack is a pile, everyone knows that. It's fairly obvious that Mario 3D World blows it out of the water. #58

So many people are saying this is cool, and while I'm not an MS fan, they panned this very same idea when MS said they were doing it.

If a thing is shit, it is shit. Stop letting corporations control your damn minds.

Sony aren't keeping games as a focus. They're focusing on them just as much as MS. They both had like the same amount of launch titles (which all sucked), and will probably have roughly the same amount of games owing to multi-platfor... #18

"fully open world 1080 60fps"

God this is all I hear out of people these days. Do you think your own thoughts? None of that crap is necessary for a game to be good. You've got to have a more open mind. #37.1

Lol, pretty much ALL gaming hardware owes a debt to Nintendo. To say nothing of their games.

Playstation Move? Wii Mote.

Vita / Smart Glass as a touchscreen gamepad that conveys extra information? The Wii U. (Funny that one. People hate the Wii U but seem to enjoy the very same feature on their non-Nintendo consoles. Corporate thralldom.)

Handheld game consoles in general? Nintendo

3D platformers? Mario 64

Ma... #39

Oh... eh, are you sure? I didn't realize that. The guy who wrote it made a pretty serious comment below it. Pretty sure it's not a joke at all.

I agree with his general sentiment of equality, but he doesn't seem to realize that it's necessary for women to muscle in to a degree, or else real equality won't be achieved. The games he describes are all from like the last two years and he feels marginalized. Yet, women have been marginalized for centuries. How... #2.3.2

And another thing. These guys always have so little scope to their arguments. Most feminists are what we call "intersectional," in that they are part of a general representation movement that seeks to counter all the negative discourses that hav accrued to all marginalized demographics. However, with guys like this, they still can't seem to look beyond the binary of male-female, and that's counter-productive. The very fact that they do this perpetuates this debate as some ki... #2.1

Oh ffs give me a break. The moment women actually start to get some real results after centuries of patriarchal oppression and deeply ingrained sexist assumptions, some whiner comes along and acts like men are the victims. I'm not denying that men are abused by women, but such a thing is greatly outweighed by the opposite, and not just nowadays, but throughout the history of western civilization. This is just a gamer playing up his unwarranted sense of victimization.

He t... #2

Lol. The moment I saw "cards" in the title I knew this was a mobile spin-off. Pure shovelware. #6

Hmmm yeah you might be right about that. Although when thinking about development costs, you also have to factor in payment to all the big name voice actors (well, Troy Baker and Nolan North), as well as general higher standards in production technology. Music for instance - a lot of games rely on live instruments and hiring musicians and studio time and whatnot. I'd also imagine that all the technology available for making the games is probably more expensive, as are the wages for develo... #5.1

Indies will probably sort everything out, but unfortunately I feel like they're destined to become the AAAs of the future, at which point we'll hit another decline like there is now. What's at the core of this trend? Money. Get rid of it.

I think you're right to correllate the shortening length of game and the increasing of graphical quality with all this. I'd also say games are easier too because of this. It's all abou minimizing risk where there are... #7

My god the videos of that game are hilarious. #1

I'm thankful to have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, a full stomach, friends, family, and things I'm good at.

I am also thankful in advance for the voucher that N4G will graciously and randomly bestow upon me. #133

@kurruptor: People keep saying that, but this is a modified version of Linux. Isn't there a chance it'll accommodate for previously non-linux compatible games? That or it'll make it easier to bring them to linux. #24.1.2

Has that awful flash-game look to it, but it sounds incredible. The perma-death thing is awesome. #1

Didn't they explicitly say they have no plans for Ps4 / Xbone?

In any case, does both Tales of Destiny and Phantasia being on the page have any significance? Man, I would definitely pick up a game that brought those two universes together. #7

The games available on Steam offer all the crap you get on consoles PLUS a vast library of ACTUALLY good experimental and unique games. I think I might buy one of these. I don't like DRM, but Valve are the only ones I trust when it comes to it. Although, the moment they tried something funny I'd be out. #39
