Ratchet once again shows off the power of the PS5. As we marvel at the details, Marvel might be working with Netherrealm on a new fighter, a lost Castlevania demo returns from the dead, and Riot enforces their Jibber Jabber policy in potentially disappointing ways.

    Something is different about these games compared to the older games and the Pokemon or animal quizzes. These games are so obscure that there is no indication of any panelist possibly knowing the answer and in contrast with the Pokemon games, the reveal is not funny. The reveal in those is funny because its unimaginable that something like that described could exist in nature. With this weeks quiz and most of the last last year, its just random theme, guessing and the result of the reveal reaction is like: 'okay, sure'. There is no tension.

    Saying Capcom dropped the ball seems a bit harsh when they were working with a Disney/Marvel that was in a very different place and imposed strict restrictions on what characters could be used and how those characters could be depicted. By many accounts Disney/Marvel was extremely hard to work with during that time.

    Fun fact: "Damnation", which was a magic card in the game, is also the Album Name of a swedish rock Band named Opeth. Funnily enough, the album is a one off in the way, that it is not at all a rock album. Very melodic and chill. I recommend it, it is beautiful!

    I disagree with the Ben in relation to MvC Infinite,in the sense that Capcom wasn't the only one to blame for state of the game,Marvel/Disney also share some of the fault. I think the Injustice games are entertraining,but the stories in them are also flawed.

    FFXI came out on 360 in 2006, with the release of the Treasures of Aht Urhgan (sp) expansion. FFXIII was 2009. It's a great point that there was little to no outrage over FFXI being ported to 360 (and not PS3, even though FFXI originally debuted on PS2). That's probably because FFXI was ignored and cordoned off by most of the FF fanbase while FFXIII was a **HUGE DEAL** because of the then importance of that series. Ironically, FFXI was ultimately a lot more successful than XIII and it leaves behind a much richer legacy

    As someone from the UK, I don't like loan companies. I really wish you would not have them as a sponsor. Upstart have a 5% late fee, daily I assume as they are very vague on their website. That's massive to me, especially in my limited exposure it's not financially responsible people getting these types of loans.

    I think Ratchet and Clank truly looks amazing but maybe it's just me but the changing world gimmick is something that I think when it comes to gameplay is a great feature but technically it doesn't seem very impressive. If they could eliminate the buffer between changing worlds it maybe would have a bigger impact. Right now the sensation it gets to me is not particularly bigger than loading a huge open world in a few seconds...

    NRS don’t know how to represent the DC characters well outside of the cinematic stuff. Looking at the larger picture, every character feels like “functions” in a fighting game and not those characters incorporated into a fighting game. Look at Marvel vs Capcom and each character is represented so well. Look at Injustice and for example comic book Batman would never fight like Injustice video game Batman where you can see that Marvel vs Capcom spider man feels like comic book spider man.

    Blood doesn't know but the 8hr windows for the RE demo wasnt the same between zones. America got the demo on their saturday while europeans got the demo sunday night. So generally, the demo was available either daytime or evening for most of the audience. Also the crew keeps saying its a "weird marketing" but it's 100% not weird and obviously aimed at streamers and creating FOMO.

    I definitely don’t agree that Marvel are more lenient towards violence than DC. Birds of Prey, Zack Snyder’s Justice League and The Suicide Squad are all R rated movies. DC also have quite a few bloody TV shows as well, with Titans, Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, Gotham and Harley Quinn all being pretty violent.

      ​@Jat 380 We'll have to agree to disagree here.

    SEGA's pretty cool with fan made stuff; there's a vibrant hacking community around Sonic, especially. There's been a contest for multiple years about who makes the best hack (Sonic Hacking Contest). Pretty sure that's how the developers of Sonic Mania started, if I remember correctly.

      I'm guessing it's pretty much just "pick a direction". Obviously a company can't always police every single infringment but if Sega were to suddenly start throwing around cease & desist letters, there'd be a valid counter-argument for "you haven't enforced it before, why now". I think that's why Nintendo and a few other companies go a more aggressive route.

    I don't think this is a correction but more of difference in perception. I personally don't see Returnal as a small game. It's a new IP from Sony with great looking visuals and a somewhat lengthy campaign with a $70 price tag. I think Returnal was always supposed to be one of the big titles for PS5's first year.

      Worth noting though that for a while Take-Two was continually renewing the trademark until 2018 when it was considered "abandoned". At this point, it's fair to say that although it might not be publicly cancelled, it certainly is internally and even if it does come back, it will be a totally different game then what it would've been back then.

      @Sanguine Penguin Actually, I have two minds about this. Kyle absolutely has the right to make a personal decision about his personal life. However, as a fan funded patron business, creators have to deal with the consequences of their actions. I’m sure a lot of people felt burned by Kyle leaving, but I don’t want any negativity to linger and make it’s way into the company. Personally, I’m grateful that I have access to both channels and that they offer different things. Kyle seems like a good guy that I relate to a lot, and I can say this world is very hard to live in in my own skin especially considering all the toxicity. I hope EZA can get back on track when the studio becomes available because it is missing something lately.

      @Sanguine Penguin Geez, that's some salt. Where'd you get the idea he left without any consideration for the Allies? It was without a doubt a super hard decision to make. What about consideration for himself? You can't just blindly keep the status quo just because it's the easy thing to do. He needed some change as people do over time and he got tired of what the Allies were doing (mostly reactions IIRC) which anyone should understand. I feel like the Allies don't realize that they need a shake up to survive. Hopefully, it will get better for them when they come back to the studio. Also, do you seriously not have a single clue why it didn't shake out for him in 2020? He literally said he's doing it because of how much the pandemic affected him.

    Hades DEFINITELY opened my eyes to the Rogue-lite sub genre and I wouldn't be interested in Returnal otherwise. The genre on paper sounded like a turn-off but after 80 hours of Hades, I think a good story progression and compelling addictive action could always win me over the inevitably redundant structure.

    I’m not sure if this needs a correction or not but they kept saying PS5 doesn’t have many games or exclusives but there is far better games and exclusives on the PS5 than the PS4 or Xbox One. I remember 2014 being dry on new consoles, after pretty mediocre launches. There’s been way more on PS5 this go around. Launch for PS4 was basically Resogun (Killzone Shadowfall was extremely meh). PS5 had Demon’s Souls and AstroBot as exclusives and Miles Morales and Sackboy as cross gen better versions, plus some more indies like Bugsnax. PS4’s 2014 was pretty much just Infamous Second Son (a good game but the worst in the series) and Driveclub (which had issues at launch). This year at a minimum PS5 will have Returnal and Rift Apart, much better games. Plus potentially games like Horizon 2, Kena and Deathloop. 3rd parties are going to be better too if stuff like RE8 is any indication.

      @Easy Allies that’s reasonable, I guess that’s just the way it is with new hardware but comparing apples to apples PS4 to PS5, we’re in a much better spot this go around. But I agree it’s exciting to see a game built for the ground up for PS5.

      The point wasn't that there aren't many games or exclusives on paper, but there have been very few games tailor-made for next-gen hardware. So anytime we get something like Returnal or Ratchet & Clank that's built around the PS5's feature set, that's going to be more intriguing than a game that also has last-gen versions. -Bloodworth

    @easyallies This may sound silly because the allies aren't playing Genshin Impact but it's basically a console exclusive worth pointing out in addition to Demon Souls, Bugsnaxx, etc for console exclusives since it isn't on Switch (announced but not specifically when yet) and no announcements on if ever Xbox. It just got a specific PS5 version upgrade too last week rather than running PS4 version on PS5. Worth noting especially since it's super mega popular and blowing sales records still and probably will keep doing so for awhile to come. Even if it isn't everyones cup of Tea (just like Fortnite isn't mine) it's a pretty big deal in the gaming industry right now. It's effectively a time limited console exclusive without Sony having to pay for it to be that way.

      @Ayoul I mentioned it's effectively a timed exclusive Sony didn't have to pay for while pointing out the switch port etc, not that it's an actual exclusive. I can see how my initial start of the topic can confuse that point though. But yeah most of the money definitely is with it in the mobile market but who knows as PS5s become more able to be purchased (if ever at this rate lol?) and whatever the game ends up doing with later expansions and such. I think if MMOs really just don't launch anymore successfully Genshin is kinda working towards fulfilling a niche in that manner for people that don't have to spend as much time like a real MMO. That being said... gotta get over the anime / waifu hurdle that may brush off some off the bat just like cartoony graphics does for other people in games.

      It's not an exclusive because it's on mobile and as you said coming to switch. There's plenty of actual console exclusives that aren't necessarily published by Sony, MS, Switch and just so happen because the dev can only target one console and they often choose the one most likely to bring sales like Playstation or Switch. In Asia, Playstation is way more popular so it makes perfect for a chinese dev to target that console first. Also, not to underplay its success (because by total revenue it's doing crazy), but most of the records its breaking are on mobile and that's just not Easy Allies' schtick.

    I've only played Ratchet 2016 reboot and it was....fine. Idk, maybe the series is just not for me, or I played one of the series' weaker entries. Still hoping that Rift Apart is one of the stronger titles since its central gimmick looks sick.

      @Lamb Asted makes sense. It was apparently trying to tie into the movie and the story felt edited/rushed to even me. Wonder if Rift Apart follows the 2016 reboot or the last PS3 games canon-wise

      Ratchet 2016 was trying to be a reboot but butchered the story and its characters. I'd say its definitely one of the weaker ones

      WBIE owns (owned? I think it was lost in 2020) the digital rights fo Lego Group digital products, which also had agreements with Disney. It wasn't a stretch to get an agreement to add Marvel to WBIE's games.

    38:15 Actually it's the complete opposite Jones lol. Having watched stuff like Doom Patrol, Harley quinn animated series, and justice league dark apokolips war, I can confidently tell you that modern DC does not care at all if their content has extreme violence, gore, and cursing. Also worth mentioning that Arkham Knight was rated mature 17 and joker was in mk11. Also injustice 1 has superman killing a child with his laser beams lol. And their more mainstream stuff like the joker movie and snyder cut are also rated r and extremely violent. Many peoples worry with Deadpool is that disney is going to make him pg13 now that they own him again. Also moon knight not being rated r and being on disney plus is going to suck

    in some places if you don't enforce your copyright ownership power. You may lose the privilege of enforcing it at a later date. Also is you don't enforce legal ownership you may set a precedence where some people may think its okay to mess around with any of your property

    I think the environments in the Dreamcast Castlevania look brilliant. The main character model looks bad and animates poorly, but the enemies are very nicely detailed.

      @Miles Dyson I enjoyed the PS2 games, but even in the PS3 era, it felt like they were trying to blatantly shovel in new console features (like motion-controlled sections for Sixaxis) and a bit harder to overlook. Maybe that's true of all Sony first-/second-party games (I don't play many of them), but it's one of those "not trying to be blatant advertising but really it is" things that compiled with later design changes to just kinda fall out of favor/hype for the series.

      The PS2 games are iconic and the PS3 ones are very good as well. After the movie tie-in, it seems like they're adding a lot more Pixar to the formula though. It's a totally different feel than the originals.

    Watch the Ed Boon rapid fire interview on Game Informer. Ben actually asks him about Marvel and Ed answers with a huge grin that there have been talks. This is happening. Since Netherrealm belongs to WB I do think that DC vs Marvel is more likely than just Marvel. That being said, I would definitely prefer only Marvel, just because I don’t want half of the roster occupied with DC characters we all have already played as in multiple Netherrealm games. Leave the space for all the Marvel characters. And for gods sake, include the X-Men.

      If they have a chance at Marvel vs DC, they're going to do it. It's literally the biggest crossover in pop culture that anybody could ask for and something I've been waiting for since I was a child.

      IMO if Netherealm could show their take on a tag focused fighting game as DC vs Marvel that would be sick, either 3v3 or 2v2 fighter that celebrates both legacies. Hopfully will launch with a big roster but Season passes would increase the roster, and each DLC could feel almost like a Smash announcement since there's a lot of characters they could adapt and be creative with (Unless everything will be datamined ala MK 11 lol).
