The Souls series gets into the millions. A dry start for you equates to sales by the way and not quality of titles???

The Order I agree is a wild card, but Bloodborne going by the Souls series is most likely going to review really well.

 

No not at all, a dry start is only the lack of games at the start of the year outside of Bloodborne. I hope it does sell we'll but I fear another Titanfall.

This is the basic problem the devs have. They try something new, it's met with a 'meh' attitude from gamers who haven't even tried it so they resort back to FPS like COD.

 

The gaming industry is in a huge hole and can't get out.

The thing is, this game brings nothing new to the table at all. Many gaming press who played the TGS and Sony exp build said the game was lackluster.

 

It's an generic third person shooter, which puts cinematics first before gameplay. Not a good sign when that's the devs first priority.

Good thing that COD is not very popular with PC gamers then.

 

Oh and, adding black lines on the top and the bottom of the screen so that the game renders 30% less stuff is not something new, it is the developers sucking at optimising and being lazy and preferring "cinematic" HA HA "experience", which is NOT welcomed at all between PC gaming circles.

Do us all a favor, once you release whatever game you are developing, let us all know so we can all see what masterpiece of gaming you create since you seem to know so much about game development. It is a miracle that we have gotten by so long without your expertise and knowledge on these forums.

This, watched enough gameplay videos this isn't going to be massive seller. Don't think bloodborne is going to smash sales records either. And their the biggest exclusives Sony has this year outside of Uncharted. Dry start of the year for both consoles. 

 

I have to agree. Though Bloodborne has a chance. I am probably downloading that one day one.

This is the first next-gen title on either console that to me truly looks next-gen. Which means, PC worthy, lol. Unfortunately it'll never come to PC. But this should be a console seller.

I like how you call me out on that. Because somehow I am relevant to both the developers' incompetence and the new consoles' joke of a performance, right?

 

There are billion other developers that don't have to lie to their customers in their faces, saying that they want more "cinematic" experience when we all know the reason they are doing it is because 1. they couldn't be assed to better optimise their games and / or reduce texture quality 2. the new consoles are a joke.

 

Oh, and negative opinions are opinions, just like positive ones. But funny when one makes an ass out of oneself over the opinion of another.

Here is a story trailer which is better than the pre-order trailer

I think the game looks great (despite the < HD resolution) and I think the plot, setting, and characters seem fantastic. But I'm still peeved that there is no co-op. A team TPS seems like a perfect fit for it. And even if the narrative of the campaign doesn't mesh with co-op (characters may die, or something) then at least add a horde mode. A TPS with werewovles and other supernatural stuff is just SCREAMING for a horde mode. Honestly, I consider its absence from The Order the greatest missed opportunity of the current gen so far.

 

Due to the lack of co-op, and unknown replayability, I have to skip a day-1 purchase until I hear actual impressions. Destiny has forever destroyed my day-1-buy-in mentality, and the way the industry is headed (I'm looking at you Turtle Rock) I can't support it anymore. More than likely, I'll just borrow my brother's copy when he's done with it.

 

I hope it's good!

It's not that they couldn't better optimise the game, it's that they chose to implement anti-aliasing which offers better visuals at the expense of performance. They chose a level of visual fidelity that the next-gen consoles simply aren't able to achieve at 1080p. The issue is that rather than be honest about it they made up nonsense about it being cinematic.

This game does scream "Co-Op Campaign Mode"....

 

Im on the fence with this game though... If it only offers 8-12hrs of gameplay, it will NOT be a day1 for me.  I will pick it later on sale...

 

If the game offers 20-24hrs of gameplay, then I'm game (bad pun intended)...

"A User With an Early Copy of The Order: 1886 Has Beaten The Game Within 5 Hours." Rumor.

http://www.onlysp.com/user-early-cop...ithin-5-hours/

 

If true ouch!

Not true. That was the time between their trophies apparently. It is confirmed to be 10 hours. Which for me is the perfect length considering I only get to game 1-2 hours everytime I sit down.

I get why people who have more time on their hands want games to be longer, if I had a lot of time like I once had I would imagine I would still be okay with it as well, however I feel a lot of games these days start to feel stale after the 10th hour or so, but more important as a 40 year old gamer, 10 hours is a good length as it means I should hopefully beat it within 2-3 weeks (not kidding there) and I will also get to check out other games.

To provide a real world example, I just beat The Evil Within last month and had it since launch. Game said I spent 22 hours playing. It was released on October 14th. So a 22 hour game took me about 3 months to finish, although I was playing some other games here and there.

Back when I was younger and 22 hour long game could be beaten in 3 days. Not anymore. So for selfish reasons I am okay with a 10 hour campaign. In fact I prefer it.

It's strange be everytime a reviewer says a game is 10 hours long it takes me 25 hours to finish it lol I like to stare at gfx and i'm sure i would do it a lot in this game. The game still look far too easy from the gameplay videos i watch.

Even if it is 5 hours, I am still getting it. Looking forward to a good SP game.

@Totalbiscuit: So the Order is about 5 hours long? I can see why they wanted it in 30fps then, at 60 it would be 2.5 hours long #ps4facts

      Fortnite receives in-game video chat thanks to Houseparty
      by Usman Khan Lodhi

      Epic Games announced today that it is integrating Fortnite with Houseparty, letting players see their friends while they play the game together. Users will be required to install the Houseparty app on an iOS or Android device and connect their Houseparty account to their Epic Games account. Those doing so will receive the Rainbow Fog Wrap as a reward.

      Initially, the feature will only be available to PC, PS4, and PS5 gamers. Using their phones, players will be able to connect to Houseparty, and the video chat will be shown in-game. Epic has detailed the process of bringing video chat into Fortnite:

      The video chat will only display player faces and replace the background with a Fortnite-themed image. Epic has emphasized that the service is restricted to people aged 13 or more. In the parental settings menu, there is an option to turn off the feature. Epic didn't say whether the feature will be made available to other games.

      Here are some tidbits you might not know about the PS5
      by Usama Jawad

      Microsoft's next-generation Xbox Series X|S consoles launch in a few hours, but those eager to get their hands on the PlayStation 5 have a few days to wait. The consoles offer similar advantages over the previous generation, including faster load times and better graphics, but they also feature some unique capabilities currently not present in the other. For Xbox Series X|S, this is Quick Resume, while for the PlayStation 5, it is the DualSense controller.

      With PlayStation 5's launch a couple of days away, Sony has published an "Ultimate FAQ" to answer some questions people may have around the company's next-gen offering. Although you may know most of the information presented by Sony in this blog post - particularly which revolves around the console's graphical prowess -, we have gathered some tidbits you may not be aware of.

      Here's a list of things you might not know about the PlayStation 5:

      The console does not come with additional colors or designs at launch. Sony's phrasing suggests that this may change in the future. The PS5 comes with an internal power supply and does not feature an external power brick. In some PS5 games, developers may offer players the options to remove specific modes and content they are not interested in to improve the storage space situation. Although you can play PS4 games stored on a USB drive connected to a PS5, this is not possible for PS5 games, as those need to be stored on the internal SSD. Sony is looking into ways as to how it can at least allow storage on external USBs, but these capabilities are not available at launch. The PS5 sports an expansion port that will allow users to plug in an M.2 SSD for storing and playing PS5 games in the future. This capability will come later via a software update, and Sony will share more information about compatibility. The company has currently discouraged players from buying an M.2 SSD as the PS5 will enforce a minimum performance level for SSD storage. Every PS5 game will take advantage of the console's Tempest 3D AudioTech, but exact enhancements will be dependent on developer optimization. Virtual surround sound via TV speakers is not currently supported but will arrive in future updates. The PS5 supports resolutions of 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and 2160p. While the console is compatible with 8K displays right now, the capability to output at that resolution will arrive later via a system software update. Players can choose whether they want to enable or disable the DualSense controller's haptic feedback technology. The DualSense controller sports an integrated microphone array and a speaker. The DualSense controller features a player-facing light bar. For PS4 games that require a forward-facing light bar instead, Sony has recommended the use of PS4's DualShock 4 controllers. DualSense offers lower input latency as compared to DualShock 4. The PS5 controller will have a similar battery life as DualShock 4, and up to 3 hours may be required to fully charge the peripheral. Sony will offer other colors of the DualSense controller in the future but has no further information to share at this time. PS5's Blu-ray discs store up to 100GB of game data, double that of the 50GB capacity offered by its predecessor. The PS5 does not support 3D Blu-ray movies. The new UI for the PS5 does not support folders and themes at launch. You can head over to the dedicated Ultimate FAQ page here if you wish to take a deep dive around the upcoming console yourself. Sony says that it will keep updating this page in the future as more information is ready to be shared with the public.

      Airpeak is Sony's new project for AI-powered drones and remote sensing
      by Ather Fawaz

      Today, Sony announced that it was launching a new project called 'Airpeak'. As the name hints, Airpeak will be Sony's take on AI-powered drones and the Japanese giant will contribute by bringing its remote-sensing technology to the domain.

      The firm already specializes in making top-of-the-line cameras for both photography and videography, and Airpeak will take a cue from this. Sony says that the project will "support the creativity of video creators to the fullest extent possible, aiming to contribute to the further development of the entertainment industry". This could mean that the new project will bring in drones to capture some interesting shots of sports, exploration, and even regular settings. Furthermore, the project also aims to bring in improved efficiency and savings in various industries. Special attention will be paid to safety and reliability in all environments as well.

      Airpeak is slated to launch somewhere in the spring of 2021. Sony will soon be seeking collaborating partners for the project. Apart from this, there isn't much that the Japanese firm has detailed about the project.

      Further information and development information will be regularly updated on this website.

      The PlayStation 5 will only be available online at launch
      by João Carrasqueira

      The next generation of consoles is almost upon us, and with the PlayStation 5 set to launch next week on November 12 (in some markets), Sony has decided to warn its fans about lining up at stores on launch day. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that hasn't subsided yet, the company has made clear that retailers won't be selling any units of the PlayStation 5 in stores on launch day.

      If you're planning to get the PlayStation 5 on the day it launches, you'll need to place your pre-orders online. You can still pick up you pre-ordered units at the store, using the designated pickup areas set by each retailer so as to keep customers safe. While the console is launching on different days depending on where you live - some markets will get it on November 12, others on November 19 - this measure will apply to all regions.

      What Sony didn't clarify is when you can expect to start seeing consoles on store shelves. Presumably, giving out a date would just encourage people to line up on said date anyway.

      Sony isn't the only one launching a console next week, and the Xbox Series X|S will actually be available a little earlier on November 10. Reviews are starting to come in for Microsoft's consoles, and you can read our own review of the Series X here.
