I still cannot understand why on earth sony chose knack to be the first ps4 game to be shown to the public, i hate to be that guy but it kind of looks like shit.

Horrible attempt to turn a tech demo into a full game.

Someone needs to call the waaaaaaambulance for all of these whiners who think all games should cater to them.
The game looks fine, in fact is looks kinda fun in a 3D platformer sort of way.

Why are you calling an waaaaaaaaaahambulance for yourself .
To many opinions for you to handle ?

Agree with Baku and KORN, i may know nothing about marketing but you must be hell confident to bet on Knack as a defining launch title. It looks all right but... as PSN Vita game.

I do understand why it's there though, have you seen the other titles? They're all aimed at teens and adults. This is sony ticking the box called "kids game"

To be fair, it hasn't been front and centre since the reveal. They showed no footage at the conference. Mind you, they gave too much time to Ubi stuff, eventhough they demoes pretty well.

This looks terrible, Textures are very bland.

Last I checked, they revealed a ton of indie ports, a couple of indie originals, a new racing game, Killzone Next (or whatever it's called), Knack, Infamous and a slew of other aimed-at-aggro-males games.

I don't see how the existence of Knack somehow impedes anyone's "next gen-ness". Hell, it actually shows some diversity sorely lacking.

If you think Knack is the "first PS4 game", you haven't been paying attention.

That said, I don't think it looks "amazing". I wonder why every shot is so ambient. Shadows, please???

KORN seems to be right here, a game aimed at parents solely to trick them into considering PS4 as a christmas present for their little monsters. That's totally understandable. But due to way Knack was revealed as the first (i may be wrong) title back in February when maximum attention and hence judgement/critisism was aimed at Sony, majority of people, me included, roll their eyes in perplexity. If it would have been announced today along with Fez, Resogun etc nobody would ever say a thing.

I don't even mind this was the first game shown at the reveal conference back in feb, something more light hearted and fun is welcome imo, it was more the fact it was Cerny that is at he helm. He's the guy responsible for the architecture itself, you'd think it would look a little better? Maybe that's the problem. A tech guy in the role of designer. Doesn't quite work. I will say though, the glass in this game looks unbelievable. And the amount of physics based objects flying around is impressive. But it's all impressive in the same way a disembodied floating head is impressive. As a tech demo, not a game.

Umm.. you clearly don't know who Mark Cerny is (Google's your friend, if you don't).

He made Marble Madness (as a Designer AND Programmer).
And Crash Bandicoot (as a Designer).
Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet and Clank, etc... etc...
Not to mention consulting on many games.

So... it's probably best not to assume in many cases.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite After just viewing the trailer, yeah, I see what Melmoth was on about. Stick a pair of red dungarees and a cap on her, and a mustache. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Irony is they are basing the film off of a reboot where you don't actually raid many tombs. The female rambo shooty shooty run and jump shit translates well, though. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Melmoth: Well, that's practically what Lara is now from the recent games. Anyway, most common traits of reboots in Hollywood boils down everything you knew about the original into a simplified trope (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog we have a spam bot Danie75 (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i just think it's an awful idea to base a movie on a game that had a terrible story, a terrible script and characters devoid of personality...including the protagonist. why would someone do that. lol (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but at least she isn't doing that super exaggerated breathy "acting" luddington does in the games (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the woman just looks so wooden as well. which is probably why she did well playing a robot in ex machina lol. (3 Hours ago)
