Man, I love Kevin Smith. That video is hilarious indeed.
Considering the game has a 95 metacritic rating, I guess it deserved that 8 all along. And I guess it’s just a way of marking the difference (better graphics, better framerate, more content + photo mode) between the two versions. Of the two, this one is obviously better.
To be honest, I didn’t even get what made Crysis so special in the first place, apart from being beautiful…
I too have the games but if these are cross-buy like Flower was, it’s a win for everybody, and Journey would really benefit from the higher resolution and framerate.
Switching between Flower on PS4 and Flower on PS3 was an eye-opener, it goes like this :
- PS3: this is really a great looking game!
- PS4: yep, still gorgeous, not that much better…
- PS3: what the hell? Why is the game stuttering and what is up with all those jaggy edges?
It’s when you go back to the PS3 version that the difference becomes evident. And in Flower’s case, it’s a huge difference! I’d be glad to give Journey an other shot on PS4.
I have both Journey and The Unfinished Swan (although I’ve never even tried it yet) and I hope too they’ll be cross-buy. I’m pretty confident they’ll be though, Sony has always tried to make its first party games cross-buy (like Flower was).
When I got Flower on PS4, I thought “man that looks much better, they should do the same with Journey!” so I’m basically happy :-)
Noone has ever been that excited for a game and watch ever!
That kid playing butt-naked is the man!
I remember trying to get up the first in the morning to turn on the console before my brothers would get up but I don’t think gaming has ever been so urgent that I didn’t have time to put at least some clothes on!
Oh that would be an interesting place for a setting, for sure!
Oh yes now that you break it down, I remember most of it… and I remember the series finishes by flushing the giant underground toilet of the island or something… sigh…
There’s about 2000km from one of New Zealand to the other (and a ferry crossing). Even if you could ride at 200km/hour the whole way, it’d take 10 hours to cross the country.
I maintain my statement.
Yes but this would be pretty boring. I mean, you can’t have a game map you need 8 hours to ride through…
If you need a country that you can realistically cross in 40 minutes, you’re gonna have to go with a very small country and you won’t have much variety in the decor…
I think condensing a country is a smart way of getting a large map with plenty of different vistas.
I’ve seen legit Kickstarters done much worse than those! If these are scams, they sure did put a lot of effort into them.
Rah… I loved the first season and kept watching ’till the finale but man did it went south the whole time for me.
Also, Polygon has a spoiler tag in the comments!
But thanks for your answer!
Oh man that stupid smoke monster… I don’t even remember getting any explanation for it in the entire series…
The megadrive one is quite awesome!
I wish war would disappear.
Yep, when I first watched the video, I wondered if they had all the authorizations to perform those stunts… I guess not! Which is kinda weird for a big Ubisoft-sanctioned video…
Wow, awesome video! I wish I could do that…
Oh right, I remember reading about that but for a minute I thought there already was an Uncharted movie I didn’t know about!
Well it’s July alright…
Yeah but not published by thq…
What does Half-life 3 has to do with any of these games?
It’s a known fact that hardware-wise, the Wii U is much closer to the specs of the PS3/360 than those of the PS4/Xbox one. To me, it’s clearly not a next gen console. Which doesn’t mean it’s not a little more powerful than last gen consoles and doesn’t mean you can’t make beautiful games for it.
It’s quite weird indeed. The game was nice but wasn’t very successful, it seems odd to choose this IP to make a movie. I’m curious to see what reception this will get…
I would watch Aladdin over Matrix (especially Matrix 2 or 3) any day of the week.
I didn’t expect to read this but I did and I’m glad I did.
