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.

Wow, easy Larry. Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

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

      The PlayStation Network is down for certain games
      by Usama Jawad

      Microsoft's Xbox Live service had an outage yesterday, resulting in gamers facing problems in connecting to it. This caused failed purchases, inability to sign in for some users, issues in launching certain games, and unavailability of xCloud gaming. While Microsoft was able to resolve the problem in six hours, it did admit that the fix took longer than anticipated to apply.

      Today, it's the PlayStation Network's turn which appears to be down for several games.

      According to Sony's dedicated network service status page, the PlayStation Network is facing issues in the "gaming and social" category. This affects the PlayStation Vita, 3, 4, and 5. The company cautions that:

      It's unclear exactly how widespread the problem is, but the status appears to be the same across most regions including the US, UK, and Canada. Engadget reports that while some games like Fortnite and Fall Guys work just fine, players are having issues connecting to others such as Call of Duty: Warzone, Minecraft, Destruction AllStars, and Don't Starve Together.

      The issue was officially confirmed by Sony on 6:33PM ET, but earlier reports point to it appearing on 1PM ET, which essentially means that it's been almost 12 hours since the partial outage began. It's currently unclear when a fix will be rolled out, but you can keep an eye on the network service status page for updates in the meantime.

      Colorful action game titled Sifu revealed at State of Play
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      Sony and Soclap have jointly unveiled a new action title slated to arrive on the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles. According to the game's website, it will also land on PC via the Epic Games Store. Duly christened Sifu, the game features a colorful world and hand-to-hand combat.

      Sifu was unveiled at the State of Play virtual event held today. The PlayStation and PC title plays from a third-person perspective and follows the story of a young man who is a Kung Fu student. Revenge and martial arts appear to be some of the main themes of the upcoming title.

      A summary of the game's storyline reads:

      Although the announcement trailer highlights martial arts, the blurb for Sifu on its website states that players will be able to use assorted weapons as well. Some of them are detailed to be "throwable objects" and "makeshift weapons".

      As of right now, no exact release date for the action game has been disclosed. All we know now is that Sifu will come out sometime in 2021.

      Oddworld: Soulstorm due out April 6, set to join PS Plus in April
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      The next installment in the Oddworld franchise was revealed quite a while back in June last year. Titled Oddworld: Soulstorm, the platform game will continue the storyline of 2014 title Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty. At the time, no exact launch date for the eccentric game was revealed.

      Today at the State of Play event, Sony took the wraps off of the release date. Oddworld: Soulstorm hits the store on April 6, 2021. It will arrive on the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games Store.

      Members of the monthly PlayStation Plus service get two free titles for the PlayStation 4 and one free title for the PlayStation 5 each month as long as they are active subscribers. In a surprise move, developer and publisher Oddworld Inhabitants revealed that Oddworld: Soulstorm will be April's free PS5 title for PS Plus subscribers.

      PlayStation 5 users will experience immersive gameplay due to haptic feedback on the DualSense controller. Players will be able to feel the heartbeat of the game's protagonist, Abel during gameplay.

      Currently, pre-orders are only open for the PC version of Oddworld: Soulstorm. Those interested in pre-purchasing the title can head to the Epic Games Store where it is priced at $19.99.

      Sony shows off PS5 gameplay for Returnal at State of Play
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      Sony first announced its rogue third-person shooter Returnal at its June PlayStation 5 event last year. At today's State of Play event, further details of the game and how it played were shown off. A blog post about the same footage was also posted to the PlayStation blog.

      You can catch the gameplay for the upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusive below 29 minutes and 44 seconds into the video:

      Set on an alien planet, the game features a third-person perspective and fast-paced combat. A lot of the enemies that players will have to face can be seen in the clip. Each class of enemy has its own set of moves. Every time players die and rejoin the game, the map will change and they will spawn in a different location. Upon resurrection, they will also face different enemies in varying numbers to keep players on their feet.

      A lot of interactable in-game items, weapons, consumables, puzzles and creatures were also showcased in the footage at the Sony event.

      Developed by Housemarque, Returnal is slated to arrive on the PlayStation 5 on April 30, 2021. Pre-orders are currently open and can be placed on the PlayStation Store.
