General Video Game Chat Rising: Revengeance

13,605 posts in this topic

Not to mention that studios got closed as well, in this case Press Play and Lionhead. Just when I thought Phil Spencer was going to make a complete U-turn of the trainwreck that Don Mattrick was, it's not exactly what's happening here. Sure, Rare is working on actual games now, but it's still weird how so many potential new IPs and old ones are getting the axe. Probably it has to do with Microsoft investing a lot in Project Scorpio atm, or, like EmmBee said, Platinum didn't reach the goal they were aiming at. Lionhead closed because they probably went bankrupt or something and Press Play, who knows? The studio probably split up. It's not uncommon to see so many games being pulled out from Microsoft's consoles and studios closing, it's a thing as common as it was back 15 years ago, at the first Xbox's heyday.

I saw my friend play a bit of the beta for Fable Legends. It was slow, clunky, and boring, and from what I hear from other people who played it for the two years it was in beta, that describes the entire experience. If Microsoft had stuck with it, they'd probably not have a successful game on their hands. Probably the same deal with Project Spark, which I hear didn't really pull in that many players to warrant keeping it running.

I dunno, Fretless, I think you're just a bit too quick to go all doom-and-gloom about Xbox. Like I said before, we don't even know that many details surrounding why Scalebound was cancelled, so the blame could be placed on literally anybody.

The reason I go doom-and-gloom is because these are BIG games getting cancelled. If these were small indie titles that happened to be Xbox exclusive, I wouldn't pay it much mind, but these are big games that they spend a long time showcasing at E3. And like AGSMA said, it's not just game cancellations, but studio closings. Lionhead's demise means there's absolutely no chance of another Black & White game, which saddens me. Thing is, with titles from Sony and Nintendo, even if we haven't heard from them for a while, like with Deep Down, they're still not outright cancelled.

I wouldn't even say I'm being doom-and-gloom here, I'm just curious about what the hell's going on for so many games to be outright cancelled.

I've been playing a metric fuckton of Tony Hawk games over the past few weeks. Probably one of the most nostalgic game series I've played during my childhood, and I gotta say up to Proving Ground (which isn't really bad, mind you, but still kinda average and not on par with the games that came before it), they hold up remarkably. It's also surprising to see how much these games influenced my taste in music.

When I was a kid, I remember owning Pro Skater 2 and enjoying it, even though I was probably really bad at it. It was actually the N64 version, which is really watered down compared to the PS version. Later on I picked up Underground, but I stopped after a while.

A little while back I purchased Pro Skater HD for the 360, and it's pretty fun, but nothing remarkable. I'm definitely a lot better at that than I ever was at 2 or Underground. As I understand it, Pro Skater 5 is really terrible, so I don't know if we'll ever see another game from the series.

I preordered NieR Automata even though the demo left me with a permanent angry frown. On the plus side, I also preordered the Crash Bandicoot remake and that might maybe make me happy I hope.

It just lacks the completion videos and the soundtrack is 30 second loops, that's not as bad as cutting levels.

That's all? I guess I thought there was more to it.

In any case, I'm actually a bit tempted to find another copy. The N64 version isn't terribly expensive on Amazon, and my N64 collection is pretty small.

I remember getting Pro Skater 2 recently to add to my PS1 collection, particularly from RockCock64's Spiderman videos getting me in the mood to just play some boarding all day long, or to properly play a Tony Hawk Pro Skater game this time, whichever came first. I tried looking up cheats for it before I began, only to find that there's just ONE cheat to unlock everything.

And then I opened up the jewel case for it only to find that the previous owner was kind enough to write down the exact cheat I had just found, and more, onto a piece of paper, and stick it in there behind the enclosed instruction book. Oops!

...b-- But at least I can still board with Spidey now with all this skate money!

I love how the game changed up Spidey's backstory to be about skateboarding.

Tony Hawks games were fucking weird.  I had zero interest in skating and didn't give a shit about Tony Hawk or any of the 'skate culture' stuff surrounding any of it, yet the Tony Hawks games were fun as shit for some reason and I played the fuck out of them as a kid.  I've always wondered how well they hold up and have wanted to go back and play them again sometime, but have never had the opportunity.

Skateboarding is one of those things that translates well to the video game format. There were also a few great snowboarding games during the PS1 gen. Extreme sports worked very well at the time and the good games aged well.

I can confirm that the Pro Skater games hold up. It's not like the gameplay and physics is significantly better in the Skate series. Both games let you do impossible tricks and survive impossible crashes. Of course the gameplay holds up.

I rented Skate once (I think it was the 2nd one) a while back. I got the concept behind having a somewhat more "realistic" skating game, and being able to pull off impressive tricks with thumbsticks was a lot more rewarding than just hitting buttons, but I just didn't really get into it that much. Might need to give it a second try.

The closest thing to a skateboarding game that I got is actually a snowboard game, SSX3 to be exact. And apparently it's, like, the holy grail of the genre and one of the best video games in history. It is a fun game, but not something that I want to pick ever so often because after all these years it's a pain to master it.
