- Kena Bridge of Spirits looks incredible in 4K. Can’t wait to play this
Do you mind to link the original? Is it also 4K 60 FPS?
I’m an absolute Zelda junkie, so as long as this hits around a 65% or higher on metacritic, I’ll likely pick it up day one. There’s definitely some rough edges here and there, but the world itself looks gorgeous and whimsical as hell. It’s supposed to be a really short game, so I can probably put up with some less than amazing gameplay for the opportunity to explore this world for a few hours.
I think people criticizing the animations need to remember that this is this studios first ever game. Expectations should be in line with that. We won’t know how it feels to play until it comes out. But, from what they’ve shown through trailers and gameplay footage is their studios ability to create an absolutely incredible looking world and I hope the gameplay is promising and that the story is intriguing and that the game does well enough to where they get to make more games like it.
Trying to see 4K on my 1242p phoneID: h1yz3w1
4K really is something else when you actually have a compatible screen to view it on. Got my first 4K HDR TV right in time for my PS5 and every game is just gorgeous, even the older PS4 games.ID: h20i0yt
I was strongly against 4k before getting a 4k TV. On paper it just didn't make sense at normal viewing distances and seemed like a massive waste of pixels. I ended up buying an OLED because they were becoming affordable to replace my high end and still great looking 42" Panasonic plasma (I was never going to buy an LCD). 55" and 4k was the norm so that's what I went with. I borrowed a friend's PS4 Pro just to see Horizon running at a high resolution, expecting to be underwhelmed.
Well little did I know but I have way above average vision with my glasses (close to 20/10) and launching Horizon in 4k was like putting on glasses for the first time. I bought myself a used ps4 pro literally the next day
The game i imagine must be pretty shorty considering what they are charging.ID: h1w9kx8
They’ve said a few times it can be completed in a weekend. I imagine it’s probably 10 hours or less.ID: h1wvnk1
I got the platinum in ratchet and clank rift apart this weekend when it came out and it took me 17 hours. Even at $70 it was oozing quality and has replay value. I think this game will be 8-12 hours for full completion with the same quality. For $40 that sounds fair.ID: h202lqs
Sounds like the perfect game to get on sale in 2022 for $10 tbh.ID: h1wsani
Hopefully some quality DLC down the lineID: h1w7y4f
I'd rather have an amazing 5hr experience than an average 50hr experience for sure. Length, to a certain point, is a non-issue.ID: h1wvmq1
Yep this, im a sucker for long great games, love jrpgs that go for even more than a 100 hours but its hard to make a long enjoyable game, you require a really good story or a ton of engaging side content, i hate that some are just artificially extending their games without justification and it feels like a drag, im looking at you assassins creed.ID: h1wbyyf
Hard agree, I used to care so much about game length, but a quality 10-20 hour experience is always 100x better than whatever 100 hour Ubisoft chore game is coming out!ID: h1wf2vm
But then there are games like RDR2ID: h1ynkdc
I'd rather have an amazing 5hr experience than an average 50hr experience for sure.
Anecdotally, I absolutely struggle to complete Assassin's Creed games now. The novelty wears off long before the game concludes.
Honestly, I think 20-30 hours is a solid medium for most games. Just enough time for an experience, but not one that outlives it's welcome. Shorter experiences need to be of exceptional quality, such as Miles Morales.ID: h1ysvun
100% agree. Too many games overstay their welcome these days. People complain over and over that games are repetitive and this is exactly why. They just drag for too long. And then, people complain when the games are too short or that there's not enough to do.
I don't like it when a game becomes a chore. Give me a 20 hours game and I'll be able to enjoy more different experiences in that 100 hours! 🙂ID: h1wdt7n
I agree so long as the price reflects that, which in this case it doesID: h1wog7j
I always like to bring up movie ticket prices and game prices. On average I spent about $20-30 dollars on a ticket and some snacks for what’s usually at max a 3 hour experience. Can’t pause the movie, can’t control the volume, can’t refund or exchange your purchase, can’t watch it again right after etc.
Then you got games like Uncharted 2 that last about 6-10 hours, cost $60 on release, but don’t have any of those limitations and it’s considered one of the greatest games of all time. Games, assuming they’re actually crafted well, will always be a better bang for you buck as an entertainment medium than something like watching a movie.ID: h1wvb18
I think this is a decent way to look at from a cost perspective it but I'm always kind of perplexed when people include the cost of snacks into their movie prices. It's not a required part of the movie watching experience and nobody ever brings snacks into video game pricing.ID: h1xhbi4
What if you never go to the cinemas to watch movies? I don't know many people who still do, outside of a few who go see the latest marvel one. Most people these days I feel watch movies through streaming services, which is probably a better comparison anyway because cinemas in themselves are an experience.
Glad it's coming out in August. That month looks really dry content wise.
I was super excited for this game and was planning to pre-order, but the gameplay just seems a little off to me. Going to have to wait for reviews on this one.ID: h1weuez
Why would you even preorder?
there's no benefit
and it's a very unknown gameID: h1xzpfp
I don't pre-order for 2 reasons.
One, you avoid getting screwed like Cyber Punk.
Two, if the game is getting a physical release, I'd prefer to buy it at my local independent game store over PSN, Best Buy, Amazon, Gamestop, etc. I've gone there for almost 30 years. And they don't care at all whether I pre-order it or not.ID: h1vu2sh
The devs have never made a game before. Almost everyone on staff worked in film exclusively. This will be about as surface/mundane level of an experience as possible with a good story and visuals at bestID: h1vvfhg
It looks beautiful, I just hope the gameplay is a bit more fluid when it releasesID: h1vykfj
The devs have never made a game before.
Uhhh wait what?ID: h1wfgbd
How do you know the developers have never made a game before? The Studio owners/directors haven't, but I'm sure they hired game developers...ID: h1vkplg
There were some mentions that there is a significant stutter during gameplay (that i am hopeful is worked out prior to launch). The games attention to graphical details are fantastic, that said this is a game and not a movie. Gameplay > graphics all day long. Look at all the focus now on 60fps due to the impact it makes on gameplay. Most will trade resolution and detail (such as ray tracing) for 60fps.
I am hopeful this team has been guided and directed by some industry veterans.ID: h1wwvfh
Please keep in mind that the only previews/people who have played it have done so via remote computer over parsec, sometimes over long distances. In those situations, lag, stuttering, and other issues are common (esp over wifi/long distance). The game is currently running at 60fps/4k on PS5 & PC. Also, preorders help determine marketing budgets, physical versions, coverage... they help an jndie dev/publisher out greatly.
The movement animations are so janky.
Like when she jumps her animation starts from a different spot than where she originated from. And the rolling too.
I hope they iron out these on release
Looks great with a nice atmosphere.
So tired of triple AAA chasers acting as indie has not given us some of the best games.
Everybody probably needs to keep in mind that this IS an Indie Game even with Sony pushing it to the forefront.
Been cautiously optimistic about it, but probably shouldn’t set expectations too high. Gonna be a wait and see for me before buying
Looks very well for an indie game. But with the hype around it, I imagine It alludes people into thinking it will be a AAA game. Or at least should be AAA quality, which it won't. Just remember people, it's an indie game. So criticize it as one for your own sake.
Everyone hating on this and I'm out here like "wow that looks like a fun beautiful indie"
Just want to add, it seems like Ember Labs provided a lot of B-roll to a select group of Youtubers and they've been putting it up, this isn't stolen. Just really badly edited.
Was very excited for it, but movement looks very janky.
Personal opinion. Yea it's pretty, but looks so bare gameplay-wise. You can tell that the graphical fidelity is the main selling point, while the combat is a staler HZD and Jedi: Fallen Order hybridID: h1vyn2u
Yep. I instantly thought of HZD. Unless the combat and whatnot changes, is it worth investing in this game upon release?
this is very close to HZD...ID: h1x5qi6
The first thing I thought of during gameplay was Teb screaming “ALLOOOYYYYY!”
Visuals aside, nothing shown in this game looks good or intriguing. Looks and plays like a very very generic game.
Looks good. The water physics looked really good too but it was jarring to see her come out the water and not see her clothes dripping. That looked off to me.
hilarious seeing this sub completely switch sides on this game. this was the obvious road for months now.ID: h1w9ddm
Still looks great to me lol people will never be pleased no matter what
4k? It's a 720p video.
