Evercade Piko Interactive Collection 4 review - Games Asylum

Games Asylum: "As Forest Gump once mumbled, “Life is a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” The same is also true for Piko Interactive collections, with Piko merely being a license holder – whenever they’re involved, you never know which games are going to appear. It’s a very different case from something like Worms Collection, or the Bitmap Brothers Collection – a five game cart with three of those being iterations of Speedball. Yeah, we’re still bitter."

I really like what evercade is doing with these compilation carts. I cant quite get behind their new alpha tabletop units though... maybe they will grow on me.

FromSoftware boss addresses gaming industry layoffs

'As long as this company's my responsibility, I would not let that happen.'

Hidetaka Miyazaki describes FromSoftware's relationship with parent company Kadokawa and references Satoru Iwata's perspective on layoffs.

Hofstaderman18h ago

As it should be. At this rate the Western side of the industry will crash and we may yet see the resurgence of Japanese gaming development. Really miss the PS1 days. No bloated budgets, diverse games and many IPs that exist today are from that era. Perhaps the industry does need a reset.

raWfodog8h ago

I wish more bosses in this industry would adopt these kind of views that Hidetaka Miyazaki and even Larian boss Swen Vincke have. Your employees are your greatest asset. Once you start laying them off to satisfy stockholders expected returns, you've already lost.

PRIMORDUS17h ago

We need more Satoru Iwata type game CEOs in this industry. Phil Spencer that piece of shit will never be the CEO that Iwata was.

A real chief, unlike other tyrants.

Why does this non-gaming news get approved while the attempted extortion of black myth wukong gets denied?

stupidusername6h ago

Don’t know the deal about wukong, but how is this non-gaming news?

Aphrodia5h ago

So the story with wukong is not really about the game itself, but a controversy surrounding it. Same with this article. It isn't about any particular game, but about the industry at large which isn't really what N4G is about. typically this site is about strictly the games and sometimes things around them. So I'm wondering, why the double standard?

raWfodog6h ago(Edited 6h ago)

Probably because that story hasn't been confirmed to be true at this point. If it is true, I hope that it gets the coverage it deserves. But these day, people just spread all types of rumors and innuendo just to get likes.

Aphrodia5h ago

you are correct, the extortion itself has yet to be 100% proven, but there are plenty of facts surrounding it that are perfectly factual and can be reported on.

victorMaje4h ago

I like to learn about how bosses in the industry handle situations. It’s relevant to gaming. Afaik N4G is not just about the games but news related to the industry as well.

Returnal Beginning of a "New Future" at Housemarque, Is the Game That "Allowed" Studio to Join Sony

According to Housemarque, Returnal marks the beginning of a "new future" at the studio, and is the game that them to join Sony.

fr0sty1d 4h ago (Edited 1d 4h ago )

Returnal was fantastic, and I'm looking forward to seeing what these folks create with Sony in the future.

Abear211d 1h ago

I’m ready for the sequel

Storm2310h ago

Ithas been my favorite experience of this generation so far I think. Can't wait to see what Housemarque is working on now.

jznrpg1d 4h ago

They make some fun arcade styles games. Returnal is one of the best games so far this generation. I wonder what is next

amobius1d 3h ago

returnal is easily one of the most underrated games this gen. a lot of people with ps5s dont know it exists.

fr0sty1d 1h ago

And it exists for free if you subscribe to PS+ Extra or Premium.

Kornholic19h ago

For free? 12 months of PS Plus Extra costs 130 € and Premium is 160 €.

Where I live you can buy Returnal for as little as 15 € if you buy it used. Even at full price it is nowhere near the cost of PS Plus Extra or Premium.

So how on earth can you se that it exists for free if you subscribe to those paid subscription services?

ChasterMies12h ago

Maybe an unpopular opinion but I think “Returnal” is perfectly rated. The restart mechanic is not the most fun for everyone.

JEECE11h ago

Yeah, I think the Tower of Sisyphus would have addressed this somewhat if it had been in the game earlier. The gameplay is great, but I sometimes chose to play other things when I didn't want to commit to a run (particularly before they added the save feature). The tower provided a way to have fun with the arcade gameplay without investing in a full run, which was nice, and felt in line with their prior games.

returnal was amazkng, i loved everything anout it
