Video Game News General Anonymous 01/09/2021 (Sat) 16:58:18 Id:7f8fa5 No. 201578
I feel like there hasn't been enough news in the game industry that hasn't been about modern politics too much nor any talks of more minor releases, sales data, and other overlooked aspects in the games industry during these past few years so I made this thread that I thinking it should've been made long since made. Don't delete this mark, I know it belongs in GG but I just want don't want to have it mixed up with political drama. I just want to keep it to a minimum since last year and this year have been rather stressful. https://archive.vn/wQ9g2
>>201578 yeah I know how you feel, the industry's been to silent because of the covid shit. there's really not much excitement going on right now.

Squadron 42 Misses Beta Release https://nichegamer.com/2021/01/05/squadron-42-misses-beta-release-date-no-new-date-announced/ Backers of Star Citizen are once again blown out by the inability of the devs to meet any sort of deadline, reasonable or otherwise. The singleplayer element, Squadron 42, often considered the "safe" part to back since it has a lot of the early funding being dumped into it and more realistic goals, can't even make a beta window. And they haven't even given a delayed date, there's just no news or announcements. This game got crowdfunded in 2012. Years before GamerGate even started, which feels like eons ago. This is truly a never ever game.

Pogchamp emote removed from Twitch because it could incite violence because the originator of the face, Gootecks, tweeted a video from the capitol hill protest that happened to be associated with Alex Jones site, Info Wars. Guilt by association in full effect. Nobody said anything when BLM started burning down stores for 4 months but 1 hr actually mostly peaceful protest and leftist are calling it the next pearl harbor. Bias media is such a joke at this point. I wouldn't be surprise if they turn it into a hate symbol soon. >>201817 Actually I was going to make a topic to talk about that but I feel most people lost interest in it like they did with Fallout 76 after a while. There's only so much you can say about a broken, failed or delayed game that you just run out of things to say.

Maybe I'm retarded, it's not a forgone possibility. Has fuck all happened in the games industry in the past 7 years or so? It's not like I haven't been playing videogames, but it seems like aside from things like God of Boy, fucking nothing came out last gen, and this generation isn't looking good either. (albiet that's mostly that Nintendo was the only one with a current gen console for the longest time and microsoft and sony just now caught up)
>>202194 >fucking nothing came out last gen Are you talking in terms of AAA shit or what?
>>202214 Primarily, yeah.
>>201578 Good. As cancerous Nintendo of America is. I still count this as a blow to (((American tech)))
>>202215 This gen had DMC5 and BOTW in terms of AAA games I can actually remember exist. I'm not really understanding, what exactly is your definition of a game coming out last gen?
>>202221 More or less the only thing I remember releasing on ps4/xbone was ports, "remakes", and remakes. Also I kind of memoryholed botw to the same gen as the 360/ps3/wii probably because it was originally a wii u game.

>>202194 >>202221 Its not like no game came out. Its more like that none of those games had any reason to be 8th gen exclusive(as in there was nothing really preventing them from running on 7th gen hardware) and were mostly milquetoast sequels.

>>203362 >The PS4 has no games and Snoy knows it.

REMINDER >System can be jail broken with a paperclip >System was hacked to play pirated games a mere 18 months after launch >System has not one but two working emulators on PC for it And yet it still sells like hotcakes in spite of all the piracy.
>>204520 >And yet it still sells like hotcakes in spite of all the piracy. Actually wasn't the PSP very successful(on hardware sales level), because it was super easy to pirate games, thus people bought the console for the free games, and why Sony released those proprietary memory cards for the Switch? I remember this was the message of one of those old castle vidcons webcomis. Wish they still made those.
>>204491 >Videogames are politics No they aren't. >>204520 Piracy is mainly limited to the launch models which are hard to get for late adopters at this point. Neither switch emulators can run games in an actual playable state (as in, "finish the game from start to finish with no graphic bugs and crashes" but too many people in the emulation scene label that status to games they tested for 30mins at best) for the moment. Yuzu EA crashes too much and has too many graphic bugs (everyone in Dragon Quest 11 turn into smurfs, movies fail to load in Hyrule Warriors DE and the water is black, etc) and Ryujinx is the reverse situation where performance is its main drawback >>204525 You could initially hack the PSP through a "hacker battery", hence why the Vita was also made to not function in any other battery (or lack of) except the official one.
>>204538 You're arguing with a tornigger, anon. Just filter and ignore him.
>>204538 Nothing on the Switch is worth playing so it all evens out.
>>203439 Nah, pull your head out of the meme gutter. The PS3 had "no games" for maybe a year or two after launch but caught up and overcame the xbox360 after that point. To this day it hosts some pretty solid JRPGs and a couple of less know games. Its not all 10/10 winners but it was solid enough to keep the console around for a while. In total I would estimate it has around 130 exclusives that are at least worth a look. (for you autist that means they at least warrant booting up before you can decide if they are trash, not that there is 130 PS3 exclusives you must play) The PS4 on the other hand has like 10? Maybe? And the PS5 straight up has well 1, that is a PS3 demake.
>>204525 PS1 and Wii too. In addition it was very easy to develop applications and homebrew/games on it. Honestly, it almost feels like it would be more profitable to literally give away consoles for free.
>>204543 The statement just annoyed me greatly enough to give him a reply. I just want to play games for the fun and discuss about them, politics have no place in it. >>204545 That's fine if there is nothing that picks up your personal interest. On the other hand, I'm quite overwhelmed by the amount of titles the Switch has but I will not deny that I also have a certain bias in favor for handhelds since my childhood.
>>203447 When's the next revision of the doggo coming out anyway?
>>204511 >The Scott Pillgay game is actually really good It's not, and the franchise is trash.
>>204601 I agree with your first statement which is why I made this thread to begin with. Too many game journalist and identitarian game devs keep inserting their shit where it doesn't belong not knowing when to keep their personal politics to themselves.
>>203350 LRG outright refused to even consider rabi-ribi for a physical release because it was a cute 2d game with a hot girl as the protagonist, and when they finally caved in they still took their sweet time to honor the vita version buyers, iirc a year and half. And soy pilgrim is legitimately cucked, literally the self insert of a canuck who chased a worthless whore for years, married her used goods ass, didn't produce even a single child in the 5 years they were together and then divorced, with the bitch getting to keep more than half his shit.
RTX 3060 has just been announced, $329 MSRP. >12GB of VRAM, more than 3080, 3070 and 3060Ti... <...this much on a non-4K card only makes sense for machine learning(except users want and mostly can afford Quadros) or mining <this is literally a mining card except with video output so it can have resale value so that miners will actually buy them >but this means that when the crypto bubble bursts used cards will flood the market and should finally provide something worth upgrading to for the ~$250 market <but that could also mean Nvidia sitting on a 3050 design to reveal it after the flood, if at all, hoping for used cards to fulfill that price bracket while they keep making higher margin products (and yes, there's probably gonna be a 3050Ti out of incomplete 3060 dies, just like 3060Ti is made out of incomplete 3070 dies)
>>204710 Did they announce a 3080 Ti?
>>204718 Nope. Current rumors say nothing else this quarter other than maybe 3050Ti.
>>204721 Ok good, I'm hoping they can at least fuck me over after the year ends.
>>204710 It's likely a replacement for the old GTX 1080/RTX 2070, although those cards might have went slightly up in the used market due to everybody thinking that they have to work from home.

That would mean no 3050Ti(or at least not from GA106 dies). Whether or not that's the case, I hope that this card will send normie gaymurz into a VRAM craze, and make some low-VRAM cards cheaper so I can upgrade my emulation rig with something like a 1060 3GB.

Here's something really stupid. UK Essex Police got criticized for a certain facebook post. "Whilst patrolling, our community policing team, have had cause to speak with a number of different men, aged 30+ over the last week, who seemed to feel it is acceptable to attend certain public places within the district, to hunt Pokemon. Honestly. Yes, you did read that correctly.” They faced backlash because the tone of the post was in a mocking manner and took it down. Maybe it's just me, but I feel that they should be mocked just for playing Pokemon Go after the trend died down. Also, I find it odd at how many people are trying to justify 30+ year old men playing Pokemon Go outside with excuses like it's exercise during lockdown, instead of criticizing the actual lockdowns themselves being unjustified. I guess you can't expect critical thinking from reddit since they are used to authoritarian rule.

The police all over the world is corrupt and just a mercenary armed force working for the state, but those cops are right (even if they don't esplicitly said so) in being averse to a bunch of 30+ years old gathering in an activity aimed at children.

I guess there are rumors of the next GTA having a female lead this time around. I wouldn't mind if they still kept the flaws and attitudes of the previous male protagonists interesting for her. I'd go for a vengeful slut that knows she's the hottest bitch around. If they make her a raging SJW, that could also work surprisingly. Think back to how every journo was angry that you got to punch a suffrage woman in the face by that one youtuber for RDR2. Think of the death reel you could make with an activist getting killed in very timed and interesting places. Rage and laughs to be had either way. GTA could do anything at this point and they wouldn't feel a significant hit to their profits. GTAV has sold over 120 million and the franchised has been grandfathered in to instant success. They'd have to do something really stupid like piss off half their audience or release a giant buggy game for them to fail at this point.

Neither GTAIV, GTAV and RDR2 were all mediocre shit so don't expect anything except normalnigger hype, retarded multiplayer whales/streamers, censorship and disappointment.
>>206016 >Think back to how every journo was angry that you got to punch a suffrage woman in the face by that one youtuber for RDR2 And youtube banned him for that, he got unbanned eventually though.
>>206016 >They'd have to do something really stupid like piss off half their audience or release a giant buggy game for them to fail at this point. RDR2 didn't sell as well as GTAV and certainly didn't make as much from the online jewing mode. I mean I doubt the next GTA will fail but they're unlikely to recapture the success of V without the massive amount of free marketing that was SA nostalgia combined with releasing at a time with very little competition for the normalfag AAA market. For 'we must always grow beyond inflation' businessfags that's a type of failure.
>>206622 >RDR2 didn't sell as well as GTAV GTA V is one of the best selling games of all time, and it's almost impossible to top that, R* had to tell their investors not to expect another GTAV, not because they are incompetent, but because it's really hard to accomplish something like that or even predict what will become the best selling game. With that said, RDR 2 still sold 34 million units, which is more than it's predecessor and puts it in the top 15 best selling games of all time, according to wikipedia, which is no easy feat. Imagine if Notch made another game that "only" sold 150 million copies and "only" made him 1.5 billion in profits, would anyone consider it a failure, just because it wasn't as successful as Minecraft?
>>206623 >Pubg sold 70 million copies and still managed to lose their market share. Shows you what incompetence will do.

>>206538 CDPR stock fell by over 50% and still hasn't risen by more than 5% since it's release and they are now being sued on multiple fronts and lost almost all the goodwill they built up over a decade. Just to put the stock loss into perspective, their stock was worth about 8 billion before the game released. Now it's worth about $3.7 billion. Cyberpunk cost them over half their net worth.
>>207085 The problem with stock Anon is it can recover Disney this year is a good case in point. Will CDPR learn from this? I highly fucking doubt it. Just add those fuckers to the pile of companies that churn out AAA shit and ignore their products.

>>206623 Investors expect continued growth. >With that said, RDR 2 still sold 34 million units, which is more than it's predecessor and puts it in the top 15 best selling games of all time, according to wikipedia, which is no easy feat. It's easier to be in the top selling games of all time when the market of potential players gets larger every year and given that AAA development has inflated the cost of development massively over time it's also less meaningful. That's also why 'games must increase because inflation makes money worth less' is somewhat retarded since with digital copies it costs them almost nothing to make more units and the pool available customers is far larger. >Imagine if Notch made another game that "only" sold 150 million copies and "only" made him 1.5 billion in profits, You are confusing sales/revenue and profit. Revenue is not profit until you subtract costs, including developers/rent and marketing along with whatever cuts the console manufacturers/(((Steam))) and for physical vidya RDR2 sold far better as a physical game to normalfags with consoles who had nothing else to buy retail establishments take. It's also important to check if that 34 million figure is shipped, not sold, which is standard trick publishers use when they want to inflate numbers (if they talk shipped/revenue/sales and not profit they are usually doing this). On man or a small team making an indie like Notch will turn far more of the revenue from selling games into profit because he has far, far smaller costs not just in developers he's paying but in marketing and in only shipping it digitally off a storefront he controlled. Comparing a one-man project to a AAA game with thousands of developers which is a dumb way to make games, more developers have diminishing returns very quickly and likely double its budget minimum in marketing costs is silly. If you want a non-Notch example id used to make fucktons back in the day for similar reasons of having a tiny team and a (mostly) online distribution model. >would anyone consider it a failure, just because it wasn't as successful as Minecraft? Depends how you define failure. If the game fails to make the company grow such that their stocks have grown in value at a rate at a minimum higher than inflation then yes that product has been somewhat of a failure in the eyes of investors. Again not saying RDR2 reached that bar or that the next GTA will necessarily hit that but it's something they will have to deal with.

>>214791 >I would rather have that RE4 prototype where leon is in the haunted castle. I have always wanted to play that game. >The only reason that wasn't done back in the day was because of the console limitations I thought the reason it wasn't done was because of a bad fan reaction.
>>214648 >>214654 >tfw no RE game with a shota protagonist
>>214794 That was part of the reason. Remember, survival horror was dying out, resident evil wasn't popular, and if this one wasn't going to print money, the franchise would likely be axed. There was a lot of pressure, but what kicked it over the edge was the fact that the GC console the game was developed on was too weak and had way too little memory for what they wanted to do. For example, say there was a room where there was going to be a paranormal shift to a "dark dimension" of the room where everything was fucky. How does that work from the technical perspective? You have to create a whole another room and seamlessly teleport the player to the haunted room, then maybe back to the original once the scripted event or an objective was accomplished in that room. Rinse, repeat with every single variation of that one room, in case there were changes made to it in the future. Imagine how many redundant rooms they had to create if they really wanted to keep their "dark world/real world" like mechanic, or the shittery they would have to do with the scripting, if they wanted to get some of the more interesting stuff put in. In short, there was very little they could do as far as the scares and the imagination of the project went, aside from having these armored suits chase you(like you've seen in resident evil 4 proper), so it was deemed that it wouldn't be worth the bother, especially as the fans didn't want anything to do with that kind of game, anyhow I think this was the video that went a bit more in depth on it, too lazy to confirm it now, but the information on the subject shouldn't be too hard to find anyways https://invidiou.site/watch?v=sjSvVfqIKDo Shame the concept was cut, I think they had something real good on their hands.

>>214805 >Remember, survival horror was dying out Nah, it was perfectly fine its just that Capcom made the genius decision gauge the interest in Resident Evil and horror in general by releasing two exclusives on the Gamecube, a Nintendo console. You know the console that was know for everything but fucking horror games. Naturally people did not rush to the stores to buy new gamecube and a copy RE:remake/zero to prove how giddy they are about horror and Resident Evil. Survivor horror dying is and was a pure fabrication by the suits over at Capcom. It had nothing to do with the actual state of the market. Hell, the PS2 had about the same amount of survival horror games as the PSX if not more. Capcom just tricked themselves into believing that it was dying by measuring interest on the wrong platform. >RE4 prototype >haunted room As >>215412 already pointed out that was the least of their problems. As far as I know the core of the issue was that they wanted to have a sort of a fog monster and wiggle worms, sort of like what they had in RE5 with uroboros. The GC was too weak for that and consistently pulling that off with workarounds was too costly and took too long. The problem was that they were not willing to compromise on those elements(fog and worms) so they scrapped it. The RE4 we got seems to be a quickly cobbled together mash up of all the previous versions as it reuses a lot of ideas and assets from those versions but for a different purpose. That is also probably why it became mostly a side story that just happens to feature Leon.
