Funny how it doesn't really looked finished, and dare I say, a PS3 game. Oh well, they did say 2016... Hopefully that doesn't mean anymore delays.

I won't believe this until it's on the shelves.

Even then, I probably still won't believe it after beating the game.

The Fact that GAF is having a total circle jerk over this press conference is a total fucking joke

That's nice...Complain about it on GAF. This is [H]ardForum not itch about other websites forum.


He brings up GAF in every thread and whines about it. He did the same thing in the Xbox One backwards compatibility thread.

Back on topic: did anyone else think the game looked sort of...dated?

Yeah, I get a bit of a 'PS4 HD remaster of a PS3 title vibe about it', but I'm digging it's art direction for the Puppy Dragon. One thing that bothers me, is they have this hyper detailed dragon but the boy looks cel shaded to me. Kinda jarring.

Actually you have mentioned gaf (whatever the hell that is) in 26 posts spanning several threads.

An additional 34 if you count the full phrase: NeoGAF.

The more you know.

Seriously just put gaf in your hosts file and ignore them. It's festering shithole on more topics than just video games and it will never change due to it's self congratulatory hypocritical staff.

Anyways, the game looks good. The graphics don't bother me a bit for a game stuck in development hell for so long. I don't think ico or sotc atmosphere suffers all that much from dated graphics even if you play them today in proper resolution. IMO Art direction and animation is far more important in this type of game.

im not even getting that vibe, im getting early ps3 game vibe.

it also looked boring as hell.

sony conferenece was just one big fan service thing with nothing that I personally went crazy for. Disappointed.

Didn't they show the near same footage from 2009, 6 years later?

It was MUCH more abbreviated. I honestly am shocked they showed this at E3 this year. I was would have NEVER in a million years have guessed that this project was still alive.

The only thing that'll blow my mind now is Half Life, but we all know that likely won't happen...

Btw OP, calling this a Shadow of the Colossus successor is true technically because it's being made my Team ICO but that's the only resemblance.

Unlike ICO and Shadow of Colossus, I'm not curious what the ending love scene looks like, unless the girl from the first game is actually the dog's owner and she finally gives you a fitting reward... otherwise, meh, bestiality is just not my thing... :(

Hahaha ha he's edited the number several times which means it's pure BS in the first place. As he said, the more you know...

That's interesting, I don't see any edit history. Whatever helps you sleep at night.

Back on topic please, and not bring up NeoGAF (in any thread) for the love of God. Take your Sony fanboy-ism accusations elsewhere. We don't care for them here, especially when they regard a completely different forum and aren't mentioned in the thread at all.

It was confirmed The Last Guardian was being worked on the PS4 since 2012. I'm wondering if they just ported all the assets from the PS3 and upgraded the resolution.

Story out today from Sony. They said the 2009 version actually ran poorly on the PS3 and they had to use beefed up hardware to display it. So yeah, it looks the same, but actually runs well on current hardware and is fully playable.

I respect that decision. With the recent influx of downgrades to major titles that cause the game to not resemble reveal trailers - it's nice to see a developer not diminish their game but rather wait to release the game the way they imagined.

Then don't quote it and respond to it if you don't want a response back that simple. What a concept if you address someone chances are there going to reply, you know genreal human behavior?

Whatever the cause the game doesn't look good. Graphically in fact it looks behind the current gen and b I see no reason it wouldn't have been able to run on the ps3. They better be upgrading it

I hope they actually complete it and don't water it down just to release it.

yeah, seriously. I'm all about great gameplay, but for what should be a AAA title, the graphics were pretty shoddy at best. Kind of a let down.

It wasn't even just the graphics. The gameplay didn't seem all that intriguing, and that boys voice hahah.

We haven't even been shown that much gameplay so I would reserve judgement. Colossus wasn't that much special either when shown, but playing it was completely different.

As far as the graphics, you have to understand what they were trying to do. They tried pushing the PS3 to its limits only to end up with a laggy game, but once put on the PS4 it ran wonderfully... but they didn't actually improve the game visually from what they were trying to do on the PS3 so I think regardless I will be picking this up. I imagine the atmosphere and the story will sell this more than anything.
