I like how they gave the secrets to even their easter eggs.

If you were born in the 80s, I've got hugs for you.

Must be fun having job in video games when unemployment of youth is 52% in Spain.

Now this is what I remember how games used to be, both in terms of idea and genre, and how devs actually gave a flying fuck about what they were making and the little details that went into a game. It's ironic that a game with such old school elements and inspirations can seem so refreshing and original in modern gaming. Must be all that FPS overkill. Regardless, I'm actually more excited for this now than most other things to come. Any game that takes the atmosphere from Flashback as inspiration is a must have. I'm getting this.

This is how the 80s should be remembered.

As I was watching this I was just thinking to myself what a shame that the Spanish dev didn't choose to set it in Barcelona or Madrid, somewhere beautiful. Then right on cue, the devs say 'we set it in America because that's where everything else is set'. What a bizarre way to think, and what a missed opportunity.

The success of Journey proves that originality can sell, you don't have to follow the herd.

Oh and another zombie game? Excuse me while I fall asleep. Someone wake me when The Last Guardian or Ni no Kuni come out.

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts In that NeoGAF thread where that source was verified and many of the things he/she said were corrobarated by GiantBomb and EuroGamer, he said the price could go up to U$ 499, PS4 Base is around U$ 249 (1 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I'm actually quite leaning towards PS4 Base right now, because depending on the price it will just not be worthy, specially since after an official announcement from Sony, PS4 prices will drop. (3 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The current consoles haven't lost their charm, though. It's just like PC where you have minimum and recommended system requirements, it will just add more effects or better framerate. (4 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @alimokrane: I'm sure it will. Specially considering Sony made those policies to not alienate owners of PS4 Base. Microsoft knows that if they do something opposite, they would get a lot of hate. (6 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane As for Xbox Scorpio, I dont care as long as all games released for scorpio work for Xbx One, Im fine. (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Sdarts: As I dont own a PS4 yet, yes I am doing the same (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @MrWhite: many mags gave most games 85+, and less 80 was considered a bad game. SF2 snes was excellent though. i'm thinking more of the C64/spectrum era were all kinds of crap got good scores (2 Hours ago)
