Housemarque Game Director Harry Krueger said that Returnal is a dream project and a highly ambitious one with plenty of crazy ideas the developers never thought they'd put into a game.
Yet another fresh PS5 exclusive.
If i can only have ps5... It's been one and half month since the last restock in my country 🥴
I've been hunting.
This won’t be a very good game. The developer is just use to make shootem ups, not third person action adventure game.
Hopefully it pays off. Playing my ps5 has no merit outside of load times right now.
And also an indie with a $70 price tag from a company that abandoned all their latest projects immediately after release.
You sound upset, what happened??
(it didn't come to xbox lol)
What exactly told you this is an indie? I hope you know the difference between a low budget game and an independent game.
the studio is a smaller known studio that doesn't self publish. Hence the term indie or independent. I don't know why people get so offended by that term.
Because very clearly the term is used to justify a criticism that it shouldnt cost as much as a full fledged game. I thought that was obvious. Also, “smaller known” studio is not the correct description of an independent studio, especially not Housemarque. But you knew that.
Neo Smaller known but you do understand they could have grown by hiring more people for this project right? That's how developers grow in size
@S2Killinit I don't even hope you know what you're talking about. You sound very new to this discussion thinking you can claim the exact meaning of the term "indie". But let's see... What exactly told me that "Housemarque is a Helsinki based independent game developer. Currently working on Returnal for the PS5"? Their bio on Twitter. Wanna argue with them too?
Indie does not mean low budget. 🤦♂️ nevermind
Irrelevant. In this case it does.
Yeah, we are all blind so please tell us what only you can see.
"What exactly told you this is an indie? (...) low budget (...)" S M H
@Palitera He is referring to the fact that you used the term “indie” to support a claim that the game should cost less. But that went right over your head I think.
I been watching the “Housecast” episodes about this game and Im really digging the gameplay snippets. It all comes down to how well they have balanced the gameplay but Im currently excited and hopful for Returnal.
I really think Sony is getting greedy with pricing! 79€ no way! I have noted that other publishers are keeping there prices the same has last generation even after telling that they would increase it..... a change of mind perhaps.. because the 15€ price bump don't seem a good move when they actually see that people will wait for a price drop if they up the price to 79€ and normally money is made on pre orders or the first month on sale. I hope this price bump from Sony will end bitting them in the end for there greed!Game looks good but no way I'm paying 70€ and support Sony greedy!
If only there existed a way to wait for price drops. I never buy games new at full price. Wait a few months and have some patience. You'll be able to get it for $30. Its not greed. Games cost millions of dollars to make. They can take more chances creatively if they know they will do more than break even and make a profit. Im poor or else i would support these developers by buying day one full price.
Looking forward to this, it looks awesome.
So happy the team got to do this game. They had mentioned over the years, really wanting to "graduate" from arcade style games to more console, AAA type games. I've put in hundreds of hours on their games, this will be no different! Hype!
6/10 written all over it and I have 100% hit rate last 12 months.
