  1. Damn they did a number on Sarah scene. Whole game is ruined for whoever played is like that.
  2. Nope, overall. Good to see critics have the balls to give a game like this GOTY. That are all about fun and fully gameplay focused.
  3. Vampire Survivor wins bafta. Heard it's really good. It looks like this and beat Elden Ring and GOW both Glad games like these that focus on fun are getting recognition. https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/bafta-game-awards-winners/
  4. They are winning Famitsu. But mobile is eating their lunch. Read my previous post. 1/10 of market is console gaming.
  5. Miyamoto on design goals of Zelda and what franchise stands for : "I wanted to create a game world that conveyed the same feeling you get when you are exploring a new city for the first time," said Miyamoto in a recently-translated interview from the '80s. https://www.gamedeveloper.com/design/in-1989-miyamoto-laid-out-his-original-design-goals-for-i-zelda-i-
  6. How are consoles doing ok in Japan? Rest of the world, mobile and console gaming have 50-50 market share. Stop referring to Famitsu or whatever for gauging success. This is 2021 data: Japan is the third biggest market in the video gaming industry with a value of $29 billion in 2021, accounting for 16% of the global market size. With $2.7 billion in Console gaming, $22.5 billion in Mobile gaming, and $3.8 billion in PC gaming, Japan is among the top five countries in all segments and is the second biggest market in the Asia-Pacific region. https://www.globaldata.com/data-insights/technology-media-and-telecom/market-size-of-video-gaming-in-japan/#:~:text=With %242.7 billion in Console,in the Asia-Pacific region. Historically, they have crafted success of blue print. Then they get out of the way. They made blue print for console shooters. Then let third party run with it. God of War owes a lot of its success to Halo. Especially how to create hype for a sequal. They launched Halo 2 in 2004 setting up Halo 3 in epic way. This was copied by God of War 2 whole sale in 2007, setting up GOW 3. Then again in 2018, setting up Ragnorok. This multi installment hype is what has driven GOW series to where it is today.
  7. It was a joke. I know MS will have more success going for Fortnite crowd than Japanese market. I do wish however, they have more say in Japanese market. For console industry in Japan's sake. Despite it being a small country with miniscule population, it is a 44 billion gaming market (US is 59 billion in comparison). Yet consoles are not doing all that great. Everyone is on mobile. They simply don't take consoles as seriously and are ok with them getting marginalised. As long as PC is doing ok.
  8. Huh?? What? They did this 3 yrs ago with flight simulator. And it makes sense to do it with that game.
  9. This is because Sony has everything exclusive to their system. After buying a couple of Japanese publishers like Capcom and Sega, am sure MS would be able to increase market share by a few points.
  10. Yeah, none of this is Sony's fault. It's just their bad luck. Though, FF 15 did sold over a million on xbox one. That's good enough sales for a port. It will basically fund the game development. Sony is just blocking the release by marketing contracts. Which is kinda useless and a waste of money for both companies.
  11. Nixxes might be working on Spiderman 2.
  12. Hopefully Japanese government will allow them to buy Capcom next, to make up for the damage they have done to the brand.
  13. His takes are same. Xbox games have started to come out, he is ignoring that.
