Cancelled Games Thread Anonymous 02/08/2023 (Wed) 17:38:17 No.439 [Reply]
What cancelled games are you pissed off never came out? So unbelievably pissed off this got canned. It had a story approved by Russel and Carpenter and it would have been hilarious to see Solid Snake compete with the franchise he was cloned from. Curious why this game would get so far only to be shitcanned. Surviving footage implies it was pretty far along (and it looked fun). https://youtu.be/o-vp_8s7--Q It was planned by Namco to be a big series with multiple games, then poof, it was gone. I suspect licensing issues. The Thing game was pretty good, and clever. It probably wouldn’t have been some 9/10 experience but I loved 6th gen games based on 80s movies. There is a timeline where this came out along with a Big Trouble In Little China open world beat-em-up game and we don’t live in it. Every few years I remember this existed and then get pissed off we will never play it unless a developer build leaks.

>>1407 Pretty much what I believe happened. It is a real shame as there really isn't a way to go back, everything dies if you don't have true power to force it to be as it should be.
>>1410 The way forward is the way back, there are endless amounts of games from pre-CY you haven't played. All hail the backlog.
>>1301 wasn't that after the movie was released and then it was first sold as the good movie game but then the game was canned when the movie flopped? Or is this a new game that was planned? >>1395 >not enough cinematic but half life more or less was in the forefront of the cinematic gameplay in many ways, and spawned many games that got inspired by half life. >>1396 that was first a PCuck problem then consoles became internet only and the games needed to be patched because the developers didn't bother to fix the game to begin with, and instead of consumers and journalists saying this is bullcrap, they just said, oh they can fix their games and didn't think what happens when the game cannot be patched because a service is down. that in return got games to re-create itself as service, or MMO-light which is also retarded because you need to be logged on, and there is only one service game you can play offline and it is 24 years old or something. I am pissed about how vidya company and the highly jewy publishers started with the game being a license you can use instead of something you own. And that is because you can buy vidya online. >>1402 These scripted events just became more complicated and instead of letting you do shit, they took that ability away because it can make the script or even the software crash. Also most games now are essential interactive movie, so one has to chose wisely when it comes to vidya, but now I am gonna buy Diablo 4 because there is an open beta starting in a few hours.
>>1427 It was years after the film. It was supposed to be a new game but got canned because they were neck deep into their AssCreed factory. The film didn't flop by the way, it became the highest grossing vidya film at the time, but its budget was needlessly overbloated because they were trying to make another Pirates of the Caribbean out of it, so to the studio it was a disappointment.
>>1429 oh OK, I thought the cancellation was not because of asscreed but because it went over budget. And the same story is with Beyond Good and Evil 2 while also having some of their biggest game designers leave Ubisoft to become indie. One of the French faggots that tried to make an interesting game or it looked interesting, it was called Wild shown in 2014 but the game designer left and retired in 2020.So i is probably canned, if it isn't being taken to some other designers, or something. Like the biggest crime that happened is that Sony made the game designer behind Team Ico just be a contractor and let him leave the vidya industry. It was such a damn shame.

Intel vs AMD Anonymous 03/06/2023 (Mon) 21:51:17 No.1153 [Reply]
Since I'm an oldfag who is just getting back into gayming, I'm a bit out of the loop. Last time I checked Intel was the money grubbing, shill, "Jewish," woke/liberal shithead of a company and AMD the relatively less gay underdog. I remember Ryzen coming out in 2016 was treated like a Trumpification of technology against the Democrat/Obama stooge Intel establishment. Does that still hold water today, or is everyone equally shitty, gay, and woke now?

FORSPOKEN(フォースポークン) Anonymous 01/24/2023 (Tue) 01:37:08 No.227 [Reply] [Last]
The new game that is published by Square Enix and made by Luminous Productions/ Business Division 2 that formerly made Final Fantasy XV. If one wonders how could the Japanese studio fuck up so badly? that is because the script write and anything with lore is written by western writers some cucks and some past talents like Amy Hennig and Gary Whitta. Now one might wonder how does this mess star off with. you are a criminal negress that is established for being a criminal and is about to be sentenced for the 3 strike program. With luck she gets away with it, then she is taken by gangbanger negress woman and a wigger woman with a gun, for not being able to steal a car then the negress protagnoist escapes, and I shit you not. How she is able to come to another world is by actually trying to steal a bracelet which she can see the glitter from afar. Then a portal opens and then she mumbles in negro, and you are off on an adventure. So far the interaction and exploration is alright but there is some cutscenes that are a bit annoying, and the difficulty is a bit too easy, and the shooting magic stone and other stuff is just alright, not too fun or too challenging. The whole thing feels like a game made for white people that want to pretend to be niggers, or what niggers might like to play as a game. While having this candance owens looking bitch as protagonist while saying negro gibberish. For now it is a solid 5/10 graphics is bretty gud but the negro just made a sour taste in muh mouth.

>>1198 It's not just niggers tho, the entire world is "diverse" with mutts and mongoloids and ruled by wommyn. Everyone is ugly. The MC is unappealing bitch apart from being a nigger. Dialog is reddit cringe. Game is 80% throwing rocks and is clearly an afterthought. This was literally made for no one, it's like one of those scams to launder money. It's like it was made by an AI with the prompt being "ayo hol up, so yo be sayun we wuz isekai n sheit". They thought that if they just make 'socjus the game' that checks all the boxes it will sell because of the CY climate but nobody who actually pays for games actually wants this.
>>1199 I know some of the writers on the game had Trump Derangement syndrome and one of them is a huge social justice warrior but I don't know how much he was a part of the script because he was a part of the world building, it is Garry Whitta btw.. My bet is that Square Enix thought that if they put up all of the bullshit that the west wants in a game that is similar in gameplay style to a Sony Open world game, they are going to make money because it is essentially a cinematic interactive experience with some minor open world things to do. On paper this would sell but in reality it all depends on how you handle the diversity and that kinda bullshit because if it's too preachy then no one wants it, I bought it just to see how bad it was, and like the OP and >>247 I kinda lay-out the problems with the plot from where I was in the game. Now, the game is allot worse than just these minor things, I haven't seen it personally because i stopped playing the game and went to Fire Emblem Auism. >>1202 The game was made for people that don't play games that just complain about vidya games and how it isn't diverse enough just to make a hit piece. Now Square Enix might have or maybe figured out that these aren't the demographic you want to try and sell a game to, and that people are more interested in their other IP's that are normal games like Star Ocean, I kinda wonder how much the new Star Ocean game made because it was a good game but with little to no marketing and little word of mouth, which is a dang shame because it is a good game with some entertainment value but the game. Last year the game that blew me away was xenoblade chronicles 3 because before I didn't understand these games had tried everyone of them but then I sat down and it just clicked and I fell in love with it and thought it was better than Elden Ring when it came to just pure exploration, also the leveling and other things are fun and you have natural barriers to not go places like enemies are too high level and so on. This Forspoken game doesn't really have it because it is trying to be inclusive to everyone or be a game that is for people that don't play games, so there is no natural difficulty curve or a reason to explore and go back to find a new place to explore or back track. While the game being a sham or a Coon, I dunno but I would believe it, if Square Enix and other vidya publishers have like insurance for under preforming games. But that will mean that they would get the money back, in the next physical year and then maybe make another game like it. I kinda doubt it, but one never knows because Sony lost profit on Returnal and the last of us, along with the remake but made profit on the new God of War game and their actual released game that year Gran Turismo 7.

>>1238 I meant last year of games then you had some few games that had minor exploration elements to them. And Elden Ring was one of these games, and it along with xenoblade chronicles 3 was the best when it comes to exploration.

>>1211 >the PS1 succeed because it had allot of games PS1 succeeded because it had a lot of iconic games that resonated with people. Nobody cares about endless 3D schlock it had, but everyone cares about MGS, Symphony of the Night, FF7 etc. Franchises that are still going based off the PS1 catalog. >the console and games weren't sold in every electronic or games store Again, they weren't sold everywhere because it was an obvious outsider. If it wasn't, they would sell it everywhere just like PS2. There just wasn't a lot of hype for the Dreamcast because Sega missed the 5th gen. >dreamcast did get random big hitters Barely any. Most games because popular retroactively after it already died, same with Saturn.
>>1209 >Ehh fuck the yakuza they make cuck porn in Nippon Good, women who get uppity must know what punishment awaits them. Men get their fingers cut, women get fucked by niggers.
Open file (73.02 KB 500x490 cuck king louis.jpg)
>>1215 >nigger porn good Ehhh I disagree a lot, and I think organized crime of all kind is usually basicially just kikes-lite, not to say that all Yakuza or career criminals are like that but most are.
>>1216 I didn't say it was good, I said it was a good punishment. Also Yakuza run the whole gaming business. I don't know about now, maybe times have changed seeing how nippon took the knee, but the 80s, 90s, 00s - all big studios had to pay off Yakuza to be allowed to work.
>>1214 I am saying that the 3d schlock is what made the console or Playstation. A game like Symphony of the Night was nice but it was niche, and I don't think it sold that well on the Playstation, maybe in Europe because I have seen copies of another castlevania game on Playstation. the big PS1 games where FF7(any of the 3d FF games was a big to a huge deal), MGS, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Crash Bandicot, Spyro, Tekken 3, Gran Turismo and Ridge Racer, wipeout, Silent Hill. There are obviously more games that was huge but these are what I remember was the big talked about games. You obviously have allot more remembered games, the PS1 library was huge and there was allot of games on PS1. So the dreamcast even if would've gotten a MGS or Crash, or FF9 then people would've asked why buy that when I have it on PS1? I know you don't believe me, when I say this but Tomb Raidre was huge, like really big deal of a game. And allot of the games are on the dreamcast but no one cared, even Tony Hawk (I think) is on the dreamcast. So it had the big name IP's. So, it is the outsider/only being sold at selected markets and some bad 3rd party support(mostly Japan only support), along with being released too early. I don't think you can blame the Saturn on the failure of the dreamcast, also some of the 3rd party that didn't support the dreamcast didn't do it because the hardware or CPU and I think the GPU was too exotic and out there.

This shit any good? I like Yakuza. I buy day one? Or is it a spinoff with way less content? Played the demo, combat seemed fun.

>>792 the first game is pretty good. I saw the demo is released in the west and that is a good sign for those that likes Sega obscure Yakuza series and sega's other obscure games that is being made like from Atlus, so etrian odyssey 1,2 and 3 remake is being released this year in Japan, so hopefully it will come this fall. Also, I would like to add that this is Ishin is technically under the kiwami remake, I had to check it yesterday of what the price difference is between a new copy of this Kiwami ishin and original ishin was, and in Japan it is about 1000 yen cheaper or 10 bucks cheaper to buy the new kiwami ishin. So it makes sense now, why it isn't 70 buck but an actual decent price of 60buck in the west and 50 bucks in Japan. >>793 I would get importing the game, if there was fan translations or something in that nature but there aren't any because these samurai spin offs is niche games and obscure like Japanese visual novels that isn't type-moon, or visual novels with fmv in them. Luckily a new copy of ps3 Ishin is 30 to 40 bucks.
>>758 If you like the franchise then go on Did Sega ever failed with you?

you know, one specific thing I hate about all these numakes is the displacement effect, like for example how all these johnny-come-lately normalfags don't even know that God of War used to be an entire series of testosterone filled games with tits and ass for straight men, they think about it only in the context of God of Soy and now that's the only "God of War". Now whenever you have to look for games, images and whatnot you always have to specify "such and such 2008" or "this and this PSX", otherwise all you get are the numake results.

Todd is lying about ES6 again but what is your favorite Elder Scrolls game? Mine is Oblivion. Now I know what yo be sayun, and I know all about its shortcomings but to me it's also the comfiest in the series with the art direction and the atmosphere it's going for. Also it's pre-NuBethesda so it's still more related to the previous games rather than trying to streamline and simplify everything to appeal to normalcattle.

I played a bit of morrowind, and never played to much of it sadly I can say the biggest experience I got with elder scrolls is modded skyrim, which can be okay I guess, nothing to ground-breaking but it can be some fun for a couple hours.

There was a lot of discussion about how physical media will all one day be historical artifacts that will 100% be absolutely useless. While some anons saying "disc rot will eventually make all disc-based media useless", other anons defending cartridges as people knocked down those too saying the actual code within those games will eventually scramble themselves into being unplayable. So that begs the question, will eventually every piece of hardware, from the CRTs to all the original hardware, be 100% useless garbage fodder, or is there a way to utilize the original casings of the games/consoles/etc to have fresh parts within making them work? What will the hobby of retro video games look like 100 years from now, will all of these things we enjoy from the 80s and 90s be cast into the void of obscurity and loss?
