Hanzala from eXputer: "Contra: Operation Galuga is a classic revival done right, but why hasn't Konami done the same yet for the bigger and more popular Castlevania?"

Castlevania fighting game for wii needs to be remade plz

Aphrodia73d ago

well, the new C ontra was made by Wayforward, who have been taking sooooo many of these classic franchises and making new iterations of them. Imo they aren't very good at it. And I don't see operation galuga being a large enough success to possibly give them Castlevania.

Pieces Interactive, acquired by THQ Nordic in 2017, worked on the Titan Quest franchise. Its most recent game, Alone in the Dark, received mixed critical reception at launch but was improved with subsequent patches."

Like we did not see this coming. Pieces and Alone in the Dark, had a kick me sign on their back the entire dev cycle to release. Perfect example of not reading current market trends, bad forecasting, marketing and release.

Why is it the perfect example?? It was actually one of the few games that did all those things well. In fact considering the current environment in the industry it actually did all those things very well.

The problem was the game itself was just rough around the edges and that’s the problem we currently have in the industry it’s hard to release something like that when everybody wants perfection and the developer and publisher doesn’t have enough to pay off all the reviewers.. it has a large cult following and had potential to be exactly what survival horror fans have been crying out for while they were waiting for silent hill 2. Don’t see what market trends and forecasting has anything to do with it at all. I don’t remember it fighting in its release window either.

Alone in the Dark would've gained more praise if it released in 2022, well before Alan Wake II and other horror projects

The demo they released a while back didn't leave a good impression, and it seems like they were riding far too much on Jodie Comer and David Hayter to be the driving force to buy the game. They're both great actors, but their performance on this game from what I've seen felt very stiff/forced - like they were out of their comfort zones. It's a shame to see another studio closure, though, and I hope the people effected (affected? I always get it wrong) can find more work soon.

I played the demo of AITD & it wasn't good at all.

Kurisu3h ago

It was a poor demo. Too short as well.

Elda2h ago

I thought it was very boring.

Embracer's takeaway from this will probably be that they should focus on live service games.

Day one buy ..
Too bad most devs do not take advantage of the controller’s haptics

CrimsonWing699h ago

I hate that not many have taken advantage of the dual sense.

badz1496h ago

exclusive features like those featured by the Dualsense will only be maximized by Sony's own team, sadly. And they definitely need to do it or it will become an afterthought by the end of this gen with other devs not bothered taking advantage of the unique features. that's exactly the problem with the PS Vita. not enough devs (not even Sony's) are willing to push the envelop when it comes to its features passed the launch period. games like Uncharted GA which uses the Vita to its full capabilities are almost non-existent. even the power is underutilized.

They're struggling with putting out a finished game let alone implementing exclusive features.

Zenzuu2h ago

How are games like Horizon Forbidden West, Demon Souls, Ratchet & Clank, Spider Man, God of War Ragnarok, Returnal, Sackboy A Big Adventure and such unfinished?

jznrpg6h ago(Edited 6h ago)

They did a great job with the demo version I would guess with all this time they really push it now. Unfortunately nobody else does it. It really can make a big difference in immersion but it isn’t used beyond rumble , speaker and the touchpad as a button

Jingsing6h ago

It will be the second PS5 exclusive game. "Maybe" :/

Gabrielmpf5h ago(Edited 5h ago)

Steering with the controller in GT7 is a game changer.
I've since played WipeOut and Project Cars 3 with gyro steering, and also loved it.
Wish more racing games used this feature
