State of Play



  • @bam541
    Gotta say I'm surprised at the content getting added into Death Stranding, that said some of it looks to make deliveries far, far easier in the long run (thank God) I do hope the robot buddy thing is something you can say load up with items then tell it to go to a certain location.

    Directors Cut of Death Stranding is available as a $10 upgrade for anyone who currently owns it.

    It would be nice to see a confirmed date for Little Devil Inside.

  • Didn't really care for anything new in the State of Play, but man Little Devil Inside still looks fun.

  • It's cool to ser a new Star Ocean. Looks like a budget title like 5. I feel bad fr Tri-ace Squinex won't back them financially. Hope it turns out well. The more I see of little devil inside the less I know.



  • Make sure to play Death's Door.



  • @paulmci27
    Star Ocean has always been like Square's red headed step child. They'll bring it along because they have to but you know it's not getting anywhere near the same attention as Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest



  • @dmcmaster I literally am a red headed stepchild so while I am incredibly offended this is a perfect analogy.



  • I felt like this SoP could have been a blog post or something. It's so weird how inconsistent Sony is with managing expectations with their showcases, and they still have a lot to learn with these Direct-style shows, despite delivering occasional bangers. Still, I went in with no expectations, so I had fun with this showing. Very happy to see Little Devil Inside in the spotlight, it looks amazing. Also happy about Death's Door coming to PS, and that Bugsnax update seems neat, I still plan to play the base game someday.



  • Also, seeing Jones being so giddy during the Little Devil Inside part is soul-soothing. He was loving the whole thing, it's so precious.

    Sooo? This game will never come. Another thing is stream was below average. I am looking at Xbox and Nintendo about indie presentation and they are at least trying. What the heck was this SoT? Awful.

    Play Death's Door. Indie of the year.



  • Even though it’s literally never going to release, LDI just keeps showing better and better. I’m already sold, just finish the game!



  • Akiman designed characters for Star Ocean. Did they also do the previous one? I remember SO4 also had such a good 2D art but when they turn them to 3D they look nowhere near in style which is a huge bummer since we S-E has great 3D designers unless they are solely working on FF franchise.
    Wasn't some at tri-Ace devs of Tales of Phantasia? Would be nice to make in-game artstyle more like what Tales of... games are like instead of 3D look they have been doing since 4.



  • A special Gran Turismo 7 edition of State of Play arrives this Wednesday

  • @sentinel-beach Sweet! I'm not at all into racing games but Iwant to get sucked into Gran Turismo, I'm ready to be hyped!



  • God, I'm so excited to not play anything except GT7 for a while.



  • @sentinel-beach well that was boring...

    but i guess most racing games are...



  • just got around to watching the GT7 SoP. Man, I'm even more hyped for it. They are double-downing on all the things that make Gran Turismo so unique in racing games. The things they added, like the GT Cafe and the Music Rally thing just seems so on brand for them, and also differentiates them even more from their peers. Also, the SoP itself has such a cozy, comfy pace, which fits so well with the classy GT vibe. Pretty great showcase overall.



  • @bam541 Music Rally seems pretty pointless to me. lots of games already have in built music selections and if you really don't like the music a game has, why not just put spotify on while u race?



  • @yoshi with Music Rally it seems like they're actually incorporating the music to the gameplay instead of just playing it while you play, using checkpoints to keep your race and the track in sync and such. I'm curious to try it out just to see how fun it will be, like Huber said on the preview I think it could be a neat way to warm up.
