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?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (39 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (40 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (2 Hours ago)
