@Kidfried @Voltan Ssssshhhh guys, you are not supposed to admit that in public incase you upset the people that don't like seeing a different opinion than their own.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

@Kidfried Even if you use 2014 instead of 2013 due to the PS4 remaster, that’s still 8 years ago. I think people forget how long ago it was because of the pandemic making time go all weird. There are plenty remakes which came out sooner and yet were acclaimed, like the Resi 1 remake and MGS Twin Snakes. 8 years is the same amount of time between Pokémon Red and Blue, and FireRed/LeafGreen.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@Kidfried I only replayed it last year, so I won’t be playing Part 1 for a while… I’ll definitely play it one day though. Part 2 played really well, so I’ll be happy to revisit the original’s story but with the improved gameplay for sure.

@Kidfried I'm definitely looking forward to it as well. I pre-ordered it from PlayStation Direct the day they put it up. To be able to play the definite The Last of Us game, which obviously would be the first game's story and characters with the second game's gameplay, makes the price of the release irrelevant to me. The potential enjoyment from that combination is huge.

@nessisonett I remember The Wind Waker HD releasing some seven years or so after the original game. The Wind Waker is one of my favourite game, and I played and finished the game I think about five times in the years after its release. I was not at all interested in The Wind Waker HD.

But my younger brother was. He had never played The Wind Waker on his own, only knew the game from watching me play it. So he was very happy with the remaster.

And just like that, there will be always people excited and people less excited for remasters. I don't really see why the discussion is so heated... gamers will be gamers, I guess.

@Kidfried Yeah, it never ceases to amaze me at the “mountain out of a molehill” (to use a colloquialism) some of these things become. The outrage that we see is often way out of proportion with the situation. I mean, I can admire the passion some people have, but these developers are under constant fire by this vocal segment of the fanbase who feels like they can send harassing d* pictures, death threats, or just rant unceasingly to them about decisions they don’t like. I’m all for constructive feedback, but what Naughty Dog and Sony Santa Monica have recently received from the fanbase is clearly going overboard.

I’m in the camp who is not particularly excited to have a TLoU remake, despite the original being one of my favorite games. It’s a game that is so dependent on the story for its biggest impact, and so I feel like I’ve been fed the best part of the experience already and so I’m in no hurry to go back to it and potentially be disappointed that it might not live up to my rose-tinted memories of the first time. I also feel like the full price point seems suspiciously high, although we haven’t seen any solid gameplay so it’s too early to tell the worth. Having played TLoU2 fairly recently, I still have a bit of the afterglow from it hanging on anyways.

Despite my misgivings about the remake, I don’t wish ill upon the studio, or upon anyone else who pre-orders the game. It’ll just be one of many games that I don’t buy at launch, and that’s that. It’s definitely nothing to get enraged about or to lose sleep over.

And you bring up a good point that I’m probably not the primary target audience for the game anyways. The remake is going to be largely for people who missed it the first time around. Kinda like me and Demon’s Souls. That worked out great for me.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@Kidfried TLoU Part 1 is an interesting situation as we're now in an era where backwards compatibility is expected rather than just a bonus feature. You can easily play TLoU Remastered on PS5 since the system's launch meanwhile a load of similar releases to TLoU Part 1 have generally been a result of the original game or the remaster not being playable on current hardware.

We'll just have to wait and see how it plays out but I think at the very least the fact it's coming to PC gives it more purpose than people are suggesting.

@Kidfried To be fair, Wind Waker HD was 11 years later! For me, it was in a totally different period of my life so I was really excited to play it again, and it improved quite a lot. I just don’t really get why anybody would be annoyed. Either you buy it or you don’t.

@Voltan Sounds like those digital collectibles could be linked to some form of NFTs!

@render I hope not So far Sony's been steering clear of that and I'd rather they kept it that way.
Either way, I won't mind funds getting added to my wallet just for playing games

@render So the Push Square piece says it's not NFT's but I'm not sure where they got the info from
Edit: the other Push Square piece clears it up

@Voltan sounds pretty interesting that… about time Sony done something akin to Xbox rewards.

@Voltan That's great to hear as I really hate the idea of NFTs. It'll be interesting to see what these actually entail then, weather you get some form of digital collectables shelf on the console or something like that.

I fell asleep reading the first sentences of the PS article. Press release me please.

Agree with @Voltan
If Sony wants to occasionally give me funds for the wallet for playing games, getting trophies then they have my permission and my blessing. Not as if I wasn't going to be playing games on my machines anyhow...

Why is there so much hype around the game Stray? Can anyone explain?? I'm sure I saw some video of it on one of the state of play thingies and it looked ok but Not earth shattering. I am surprised by the amount of comments about people's anticipation for it on various articles.
Anybody?

@JudgeDredd
I thought there must be more to it than that but that I had missed something.
I don't particularly like cats.
I think they are disloyal and duplicitous.

Also you can play as a cat in Cat Quest. And you get to kill dragons with swords in that.
