Some of the press regularly tries to lure readers with reports on Unreal Engine 4 fan remakes, even though they know perfectly they're not happening.
I also noticed lots of submissions here on N4G...It is a bit annoying to see those videos knowing that they're not coming true.
It's funny watching people pin their hopes and dreams on what is essentially just a really cool senior project.
As long as they come out it's cool
They don't come true.
Of course they don't, how could they? Even these folks behind Apeiron are either knowingly lying about it being legal or they're just incredibly naive.
@Alexious Of course they're lying. Disney wouldn't be giving out the Star Wars license willy nilly like that.
While in some respects I agree that there can be an abundance in these stories, I have no issue in the slightest with a mention. These are people with outstanding talents that a mention on the big sites could lead to something promising. Will the vast majority of fan remakes be made? No. However, seeing what can be made with the engines and giving a bit of publicity to them isn't too bad, so long as it doesn't supplant real news and it's realistic in mentioning how little chance there is of a project releasing.
In that respect it could be seen as a work of art, fan art. Not sure why some people assume such a thing would flourish into a full fledged game though.
That's the point, publications generally don't cover fan art and they shouldn't goad readers into thinking those will be actual games.
Someone's butthurt about MGS remake getting canned... And understandably so.
Not only that, but now someone is announcing KOTOR remake. Given its one of my favorite games of all time, I was amazed I was able to keep a -_- face, and not care in the least. It'll get shut down too before you know it.
More like somebody's getting annoyed at how many people actually believe that these things could possibly come true
lol agreed. Many folks seem to just disregard they don't own the IP, even more so the disregard many of them don't even have gameplay, they are just tech demos showing off graphical effects lolz
It's just using nostalgia to further your CV. Nothing wrong with that.
Jak 2 renegade looked amazing. ND should have given the guy tools and endorse the project. Maybe publish it themselves
no. "looked amazing" because you played it? Many things can "look" um "amazing" it doesn't really mean they play that way. Game development is much more then how something looks. I can't even honestly say that a bulk of the development is even physically making those environments as much as its actually programming the physical gameplay of the game. I went to school with many artist that did this sort of thing for fun.....FOR FUN! lol That doesn't mean with a few more buds they could make a Jak 2 remake. ND canned Jak 4 for a reason and I don't see Sony just oking something like this. ND is owned by Sony, they don't publish and don't own the rights to Jak and Daxter, Sony does.
I dunno about you but I look with my eyes, not with my hands. In my eyes that project looked amazing in Cry Engine. That's all I said
LMFAO! Xik, why would a publisher ok a game solely on how it looked? I'm sorry Xik but its just not how it works. Many, many artist can create pretty cool environments....doesn't mean they can just make a real game, just means they can make part of it. Its just not practical enough to really see those projects becoming real games. When I see something actually playable, then I'll actually take some sorta of notice as I'm pretty sure any major publisher would do the same.
This is what I said in the article here about them cancelling the Shadow Mosses project. All these people keep announcing all this stuff as if they'll be that one lucky one that won't get stopped. Shut your damn mouths, make the remake or whatever, then release it. Don't give them a chance to stop you. It's not rocket science.
If the article is written as bad as the title then nobody will understand it.
Poor guy... They're forcing him to read about any UE4 fan remake.
As far as i know there are 2 remakes that ever got finished (Half Life and Deus Ex). If you look up say Deus Ex Revision youll see exactly why it got finished. Its one thing to make a map, its a different beast entirely to rebuild a game on a different engine.
It must be a terrible burden to be obligated to watch all these videos. If only the internet gave us the ability to look the other way, but no, it forces us to watch ALL THE VIDEOS. Because GOD FORBID people find new ways to have fun and be creative. I mean, shame on them. They should stop for your sake.
I enjoy these kinds of things. Probably a more productive use of one's time than arguing over whatever the hot topic of the moment is, and they can be entertaining. Plus, I always love to see how creative people can be....mostly because I lack any artistic talent myself. I don't typically comment though, just watch, appreciate(where warranted), and move on to argue over whatever the hot topic of the moment may be with plenty of repetative articles to argue in...which admittedly, is more tiring than the UE4 remakes that come along every week or so for one article.
Don't watch them? Don't you have to click on the title link and then sit there and watch it? What if you didn't do either of those actions?
So actually you have no real reason to not write about Fan Remakes, you mention 2 examples of failed attempts and 2 successful Remakes, this sounds like an even space to me not like an disproportional large scope of faild projects. If some of this projects have the chance to happen than people should definite be informed about the possibility, nothing wrong with guys who want to cover this Fan Remakes in my opinion.
wtf is this headline it makes no sense... "Tired to Read of.." wtf does that mean
Every word "was" capital as well._lol I flagged this lastnite but somehow it got approved.
"clickbaiting" is the future. A sad future...
