Learn more about The Initiative and their vision for Perfect Dark
Good trailer but I forgot about it after seeing Back for Blood
Was Back for Blood the game with cringe in game dialogue ?
Basically they could have named it left 4 dead 3
Lol it was pretty bad ngl
Well I didn't. Little by little the proposal of MS is getting really great.
wait how did this get approved? I submitted a youtube video and it was reported that I cannot post a direct youtube video? should it be from developers only?
Glad The Iniative bringing back Perfect Dark one of my favorite games ever.
I'm glad too but we have to remember that this is a new studio. Perfect dark was developed by rare in the glory days. It is very likely that the tone and style as well as overall look and feel will be wildly different than what we loved from the original perfect dark. Until they show actual gameplay we won't know if this ip i sin good hands or if it will be tarnished.
I loved perfect dark on N64. But I would much rather they try something new to be honest, I always feel like it would limit a studio's potential and creativity. Such as 343 to work on Halo, or playground to work on Fable, Activition on Crash, a new studio for MGS or Silent Hill ...etc are just not the same... just create a spiritual successor so the game doesn't get destroy by through the roof hype, and at the same time it give the studio so much more freedom to go crazy!!
They have 21 studios working on games and some of those studios are working on multiple games. The initiative is supposed to be their AAAA studio and large so they maybe working on more than one project.
With them being such a new studio, I'd be very surprised if they're already a multi team studio, tbh. Not that that's even a problem, tbh. Let them prove themselves on a major title before splitting then up, I say.
@Sayai Jin If the Initiative chose to do Perfect Dark, then I wish them well. Hopefully they are not being forced to work on old IPs. Either, in my opinion, two things can happen. 1. They follow closely to the original, limiting their creativity. 2. They don't follow closely to the original, then might as well call it something else. The point is, it is very hard to meet fans' expectation, it can make reviewers/gamers being extra critical on the game just because of the name "Perfect Dark" alone, it would suck if a brand new studio full of potentially get killed of right off the bat because of unrealistic expectations from everyone.
It's a reboot, it wont play 1:1 to the original they could rename it and you'd think its a whole new ip. Same with Fable. So how is it limiting a studio if they decide to use the name for a genre they want to make to appeal more to fans? Replace Kratos with someone new and rename it, would you still think it was GoW? No you wouldn't. It could've been an entirely new ip if they wanted.
Perfect dark was quite fun for N64. Best graphics I'd ever seen at the time and kewl gameplay.
Not what I thought they were going to do. I thought it would be a new IP . Oh well it’s something
I mean, on one hand it’s cool, but I wish MS would come up with new IPs.
Like God of War Demon Souls Ratchet and Spider-Man?
Ok, fair point, I think where I was really coming from was remembering Perfect Dark Zero and wasn’t exceptionally blown away by the original Perfect Dark on N64... multiplayer was good, but the game was, meh. So, seeing an announcement for a new Perfect Dark is cool because it’s the whole nostalgia thing of, “Oh, I remember that game.” I just feel like it’d be more compelling if MS started doing more original IPs. Like, I’m not sure what In the trailer is connected to Perfect Dark aside from the main character. Is Perfect Dark a strong enough brand that it would sell way more over an original IP? Something new would be more intriguing is where I’m getting at. God of War, Ratchet and Clank, Spider-Man I view are the equivalent of Halo, Forza, and Gears for Xbox. Y’know, already established brands that have many games across multiple generations. I mean, I kind of want MS’s equivalent of The Last of Us when it first came out. If Sony said here’s a new Syphon Filter my reaction would be the same as it were for this Perfect Dark reveal, “Oh cool, I remember that game... but I wish you’d come up with something original instead.” It’s just there’s not enough fantastic memories I have with Syphon Filter to get hyped for a new entry. Whereas God of War, Gears, Halo, Ratchet, and Spider-Man I do. If any of that makes sense. Wasn’t twisting this into a slight against MS and coming off as a fanboy, so don’t take it that way.
@343_Guilty_Spark To be fair, each of those studio are creating a game that they started... Spiderman-Man doesn't count as it is not a video game license. For Bluepoint, I might be the minority, because as good of a job as they did with Demon's Souls, I actually prefer them to start creating new IP with what they have learned. Imagine the 3 studios that are doing CoD in Activition, they are probably drained by doing CoD year after year after year, company needs to start letting them creating their own IP... letting 343 try creating a franchise of their own, letting playground do a whole new RPG without the invisible box of fable. I also don't like the idea of the rumor of creating a new studio to do Uncharted, or a different studio to redo MGS...etc Forced to work behind someone else shadow is always the worst.
It was one of the shittiest launch title games on the 360, it was so so damn bad.
