Jade Raymond: 'Indies are delivering the most exciting new c

Postby schubacca » 27 Mar 2013, 13:32

Is it just me?

I prefer big budget AAA titles.

If I have 10 of those, I am happy.

This can be summed up thusly: it's not how big the game is, it's what dev's do with it.
If that phrase had been used at me you'd see a terrorflop alright! ;)

She's right.

I'll take Minecraft, Trials, Journey, Walking Dead, Hotline Miami, Unfinished Swan, Mark of the Ninja over the likes of big budget AAA titles like Crysis, Resident Evil 6 and Assassins Creed 3 anyday.

I bought a little known game called Terraria for £1.49 a while back, I've put more hours into it than I'd care to admit. And it still keeps calling me back. Looking forward to that devs next game, Starbound.

You just made me realize how weak some AAA titles have been looking lately. Resident evil 6, crysis, and dead space 3 look extremely generic when compared to the smaller hits we've gotten lately...There's also far cry 3, dishonored and spec ops. A lot of them are received really well but jesus if EA doesn't put out some generic s**t. Isn't an army of two sequel on the way?

She is both correct and fit, a dangerous combination.

Journey was amazing but short, I liked 'The Last Guy' for pick up and play, there are many others on DS (prof Layton) and PS2 (Shadow of the Colossus & ICO) - but there again I could not do without these in a year or two - GTA, RDR, Far Cry, Batman Arkham (etc), God of War, Uncharted, MGS etc etc.

BUT - I could do without more COD clones, COD itself, Crysis, Assassins Creed 3, Resident Evil (since after 4), Ninja Gaiden, Army of Two (whatever), Dead Space (since 3).

If we can get 10 top titles, one or two in each genre then that will do, perhaps one a month just to stop us all being skint.

I'm probably wrong here but wasn't it ubisoft who kept saying they couldn't make anything good until the next gen comes out. When is next gen coming out. We really need next gen out. These machines don't have enough next gen power. We're next gen-less?

Was it ubisoft or am I thinking of someone else?
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Chewie, take the professor here and plug her into the hyper drive. That may or may not be a euphemism.

This has been the case for ages. There have been a few big budget AAA games that have been really good but I'm finding a lot of games are becoming too similar (dumb) and there's only so many times I can point a cross hair over a terrorist/monster/alien before I fall into a boredom coma.

I've only bought one big game this year up to yet. Ni No Kuni. Nothing else has really stood out for me to make a day one purchase.

I'm getting old. :(

Well, Jade shouldn't forget that the amazing visuals of AC3 are probably the one thing that saved the game, from being entirely "meh".

She might be right on some points but Ubisoft are hardly in a position to talk about innovation, mentioning Splinter Cell basically hammers home that point.

I agree with her, but not exactly what yves has been spouting the last few years. They should align more.

Two comments pages in and still no one has said it? Fine....

I wouldn't last two minutes with Jade.

Bioshock Infinite is well worth it.
