We need another good one

Do they actually have the rights this time? Will it be janky as fuck like Friday the 13th was? I don't hold out much hope

Sony owns the rights to Ghostbusters so yes I imagine they do

Predator Hunting Grounds is pretty fun. The enemy ai is some of the worst I've ever encountered though.

ID: hf5r2e9

Predator suffers the same problem friday the 13th did but it especially suffers from the biggest issue which is the single character (jason or the predator) are both too powerful within the games.

Now I know they absolutely should be powerful that is their whole thing. At the same time though they are games and if they aren't balanced correctly then nobody wants to play the opposing side.

I am going to use predator as the example but after a week of playibg I quickly learnt that I could find them on the map easily, jump in the middle and take out whoever I could. If I got downed I just activated the bomb and victory, they were all dead.

Friday the 13th as Jason they were quickly identified on the map use the teleportation or the speedy travel in first person, grab them and insta kill.

The opposing forces don't have enough to compete against them.

I don't know why Sony haven't commissioned a first party Ghostbusters game, they own the rights after all.

ID: hf4xhgs

We already got The Ghostbusters Videogame. I honestly don’t know if anything else can be as good as that game.

rumors a month ago is that they were working on a Leatherface title. Well as long as they use dedicated servers cause F13 was a shit show on consoles when it launched

ID: hf5hqpm

Still possible, the rumor was about Gun Media not illfonic.

ID: hf4vuoe

Yeah I’d be much more interested in another horror franchise since it just seems to work better with their formula. Granted idk if Texas chainsaw is the right move with leatherface lacking the supernatural aspects that characters like Jason, freddy, and Michael myers tend to have.

I'd be game to give this a chance. Any way to bring us another Ghostbusters game ... But hopefully it's a good one.

7 : Anonymous2021/10/02 14:53 ID: hf3qzkm

Wonder if they’ll just copy/paste a ghostbusters skin over predator huntings grounds?

ID: hf3sash

I hope not, this game is a joke

8 : Anonymous2021/10/02 15:31 ID: hf3vxmr

Interesting. This could be quite fun if done right. I rather enjoyed Predator despite it being a mediocre game and my girlfriend found it fun too.

What is really interesting is that Predator was published by Sony and was a console exclusive. This should be the same. Do I smell an acquisition coming?

ID: hf4m9ql

These guys don’t seem like a studio that has anything unique Sony needs.

ID: hf4st2i

They seem to be happy working on movie IPs like Predator and Ghostbusters. They also approach multiplayer in a unique way with their games. They don't end up being amazing but they do please a specific group.

9 : Anonymous2021/10/02 17:35 ID: hf4dd32

I’m definitely curious.

Given their track record, should we be excepting some sort of multiplaye

experience? I see how Co-Op could work, but if anything, I would love a single-player oriented experience.

There was that one Ghostbusters game back in 2009. It might be interesting to see a fresh take on that. Though maybe this will be something completely different and new?

10 : Anonymous2021/10/02 20:00 ID: hf4xf62

I’ll be excited when they release a good game.

11 : Anonymous2021/10/02 16:21 ID: hf42xi0

Lol and then again they have no licenses.

12 : Anonymous2021/10/02 17:23 ID: hf4bs8c

Please no. They ruined F13 when they took out team killing lol. It made the game so one dimensional. They killed most of the hype around the game, the day they did that.

ID: hf4eqyj

I only really played it when it became a PS+ game but my biggest gripe was people working with Jason so he could kill everyone but their friend and then help them escape. Happened 6 matches in a row, so I just deleted the game.

ID: hf4jgny

I like to boot it up just to kill the AI after a long day lol

This is disappointing to hear, their games have all been one note and disappointing. Ghostbusters requires a storymode and I don't think they're capable of that.

14 : Anonymous2021/10/02 20:47 ID: hf541ja

Who the fuck is giving these guys all those rights to ips first Friday the 13th which was a disaster then predators hunting grounds which was trash and that's not including there doa pvp game dead alliance

ID: hf5kx3b

I have a love hate relationship for this studio. On one hand they put out some very lackluster games with meh gameplay. On the other hand, the last Predator game was from 2010, and the one before that around 2005 ish. As for Friday the 13, the last game for that franchise was the NES I think? I'm other words, there has been more than enough time for someone else to use the IP, yet no one has stepped to the plate. F13 was not that good and buggy, but I honestly put so much time into the game because it was simple and fun for what it was. I would love another studio to make a triple AAA title from it, but as of now they are the only studio to give it a try. So for that reason I can't really complain.

Better not be like Friday the thirteenth.... I'd prefer it be similar to a God Of War style.

ID: hf46kks

What is that supposed to mean in regards to a Ghostbusters game?

ID: hf46u81

Game design, I don't want it to be like the Friday the 13th game. I'd prefer a style like God Of War for Ghostbusters. Even better would be big open world, running around new York answering the call....

Hopefully its not yet another asymmetric multiplayer game. Rarely do they work if both sides can directly attack each other. The reason something like DBD works better is because the match and mechanics are easier to balance when one side can't directly attack the other. Or rather, either side has access to specific opposing strengths that the other side does not.

Plus, asymm is so overplayed. Now, if they try to do a Ghostbusters in the same vein as their Arcadegeddon, at least that would be more interesting.

ID: hf55g05

It will be.

ID: hf5ro2v

Probably end up being 4 ghost busters against 1 ghost within a level but likely the ghost will be so overpowered there is no desire to play as the busters.

17 : Anonymous2021/10/02 20:00 ID: hf4xgan

They should just take the old story and dialogue from the 360 game and remake the game from scratch using the UE5 engine.

18 : Anonymous2021/10/02 20:20 ID: hf505k1

Illfonic: "Let's destroy another classic horror movie franchise !" I'm a bit tough with Friday 13th, it was fun but full of bugs. Predator on the other hand is one of the worst games ever. So I'm not really confident about this new project.

19 : Anonymous2021/10/02 20:23 ID: hf50mjq

Too bad. That F13 controls about as well as a zamboni on a football field.

20 : Anonymous2021/10/02 21:34 ID: hf5ahmk

I won't support Ilffonic or Gun Media after their handling of Friday the 13th. In addition to both knowing the rights dispute was going to effectively end all development, they (along with Horror Inc.) lied to the public about that fact while pushing for more sales.

'Friday The 13th: The Game' Will Not Be Affected By Lawsuit

Regardless, they never fully delivered on the content they promised before they pulled the plug for good.

21 : Anonymous2021/10/02 21:35 ID: hf5al9o

Everything Illfonic touches turns to shit so hopefully this isn’t true.

ID: hf5l4k9

I'm not a fan of the studio, but what else can you do if no one else is making the effort to use those IPs. Outside of NES, has Jason been in anything other than a DLC for mortal Kombat?

22 : Anonymous2021/10/02 22:12 ID: hf5fmib

I hope this is not of a franchise reboot than just reusing the films.

23 : Anonymous2021/10/02 23:31 ID: hf5qapc

So we can safely say we should avoid this game.

24 : Anonymous2021/10/02 18:21 ID: hf4jth8

I'll pass they did a decent job with Friday I think it's the for them to go away for a bit
