Seeking Perfectris: Mizuguchi on 4 years of Tetris Effect, and beyond

From VGC: "Four years ago, Tetsuya Mizuguchi shared a trailer for his next game.

It began with bright colours dancing across a dark background and a voice over speaking enigmatically about a medical study during which participants reported seeing colourful images from a game in their mind, just as they were falling asleep.

As the soothing trance music swelled and the colours became overwhelming, the voice over read the line: “Blocks, they all saw blocks. Falling through space, sometimes rotating or fitting neatly into empty spaces between other blocks. Some participants also reported seeing completed lines disappear.”"

Tetris Effect VR is a mind expanding really cool VR game. What an incredible game, love the VR dolphins.

Good on them doing this at least.

“we’re offering a severance package that includes six months base pay and in the US/Canada/Brazil six months of Epic-paid healthcare. We’re offering to accelerate people’s stock option vesting schedule through the end of 2024 and are giving two additional years from today to exercise the options. In the US we’re also offering to vest any unearned profit sharing from their 401k. And we’ll provide benefits including career transition services and visa support where we can.”

I wonder how much of a bonus the CEO will get after this decision?


Would be "too much" for us, but probably it's "not enough" for the greedy bastard...


Epic makes way too much money to have to lay people off of the spent that money smartly. Tim wasted money on exclusives for their store when it could have gone to paychecks for people.

Epic put all their eggs in one basket with fortnite, they should have continued with the development of unreal tournament and got that game going as an arena shooter that's free to play with a huge cosmetic cash shop.

But your CEO knows what their doing.... laying off people so the board doesn't see exactly how much you stuck. The usual playbook.

Currently my most anticipated Remake project

senorfartcushion1d 13h ago

Max Payne 3 is my 2nd favourite game ever. I cannot wait for these remakes.

RedDeadLB1d 10h ago

They aren't remaking 3 though. Only 1 & 2.

senorfartcushion1d 10h ago

I know.

It's the style of gameplay that I like due to how much I played MP1 and mostly 3.

RaidenBlack1d 9h ago (Edited 1d 9h ago )

Max Payne 3 is very underrated.
I've been planning to do a second run of the game for quite a while ...
The multiplayer part was also infamous for being surprisingly really good, but was overlooked by many
Would love a remake of that as well but by R* themselves using their own RAGE engine, to have a nice contrast against Remedy's Northlight engine project. :)

What other confirmed remake project excluding Final Fantasy exists?

RaidenBlack1d 1h ago

Silent Hill 2
Persona 3

I just hope they don't end up digital-only like Alan Wake 2.

-Foxtrot1d 23h ago

I adore these games, they ooze atmosphere. I hope they are fantastic.

I wish Remedy would have done Max Payne 3, Rockstar had some amazing gun play in them but the story was just not as good. It's like they were working on a new IP and slapped Max Payne onto it, only the flashback levels felt like Max Payne. Also they went of the ending where Mona died which sucked.

I wouldn't mind if one day they did their own Max Payne 3

Dagexon1d 13h ago

I liked the story tbh. I mean the main plot did feel very disconnected from 1 and 2 but I really liked Max's character development tbh

-Foxtrot1d 9h ago

His development felt like it did a 180 from what was shown in Max Payne 2

isarai1d 21h ago

I wanna see them so bad, but it'll probably be years

ApocalypseShadow1d 17h ago

OG Max Payne redone in the best way possible would be awesome and an easy purchase. Hope they get it right.
