    I would LOVE to play a remake of the Jak trilogy. I never actually beat the second and third games because they kind of freaked me out and were too hard as a kid, but I played the first one dozens of times and I actually platinumed it on PS4 already. I'd gladly platinum it again as a remake. Sly Cooper is another series I think that should definitely be revived on PS4 or something. I never played them, but I know that they are beloved.

    Is the TLOU Remake because the TV show’s on the horizon? Is it because TLOU2 was divisive and Sony wants to play it incredibly safe? Either way, it feels icky

    TLOU2 burned all of my interest in that series. I went from feeling like TLOU was possibly my favorite game ever made, to wondering whether it needed a sequel, to being desperate to play the sequel (TLOU2)...to no interest in any of the games or the TV series. I'm sure I'm not alone. Where they took that story in TLOU2 retroactively killed my interest in the original story, somehow. I am open to a TLOU3 though in the sense that I'd be interested in seeing where the story can go from here as I feel like it can't get any worse (for me personally, I realize there are many others who enjoyed it).

      That's what happened to me with TLJ and RoS for star wars. I think it's a fair thing to feel. At least in TLJ's case, I feel like a sizeable part of its storytelling sorta rested on how the Trilogy concluded. And seeing how that did I think it's fair to be retroactively critical somewhat of TLJ. TLoU is a bit more of a standalone thing, though. I imagine with that it's still similar since at the end of the day its story is still being continued and if you didn't like part 2 you're going to end up feeling burned.

    We don’t give The Last of Us 2 enough credit for its ambitious accessibility features that allowed blind people to play the game in its entirety. One great benefit of remaking TLOU is bringing these accessibility features to people who couldn’t experience the first game. Moreover, next gen graphics, updated mechanics, and probably some expanded story beats. For all those reasons, I support TLOU remake over any other remake naughty dog could do.

    Why I would play a 7ish game like Outriders while there's still so many incredible indie and AAA games out there worth my time in all platforms is almost impossible to imagine. I guess a game being the 'new thing' is a reason, or maybe if I loved the specific genre/art style of the game.

    Hey Allies. Thanks for answering my question this week. Although you guys mostly disagreed with me, you guys brought up a lot of good insights and points I never considered when I originally came up with the question like how secretive the development process is. I really liked Huber's point about pivoting and developers using their missteps to improve their games like how RE 6 lead to Revelations and RE7, which gives me a little hope for Cyberpunk 2077 getting better. Also, I'm sorry for making Ben read my very long question as I could definitely tell he got winded near the end. I'll make sure my next question is more concise.

    I think the Last of Us remake is a logical business step in trying to bring new people to PlayStation. It feels like the Last of Us HBO show is probably going to get a huge marketing push so when new fans turn to the games, Sony doesn't want to direct those people to a game from 8 years ago (remastered or not). They want those people to go buy a PS5 and this new incredible-looking version of The Last of Us so those new people are blown away, they buy a PS5 version of TLOU 2 as well, and PlayStation further cements it's branding as the home of 'amazing cinematic video game masterpieces'.

      ​@faroff No, what I mean is that Microsoft had no obligation to keep Minecraft on the PlayStation store for sale or to allow for continued online interaction on PlayStation. Plenty of games leave digital storefronts and can't be redownloaded, it has nothing to do with access to players' personal hard drives and physical copies. Spider-Man and the MLB have been on platforms other than PlayStation. Microsoft IS sharing an exclusive with PlayStation, it's sharing Minecraft.

    So much hyperbole during the Days Gone segment. Rarely been this taken aback by a segment on Frame Trap. Why are they acting like Days Gone was some kind of beacon of originality? It's not like a Days Gone 2 is what the industry needs in terms of fresh ideas. Why are they acting like Bend is somehow in trouble? That one pitch was denied, but what if it was a bad pitch? That doesn't mean the studio is getting squashed down by Sony. It's a very common thing in the industry and you move onto the next pitch. Now, they get to make a brand new IP. That's a ton of freedom to give this studio when you look how even Santa Monica and Naughty Dog are doing way more sequels than new IP's. Not enough people read that article critically. Schreier kind of tossed Sony under the bus and made a bunch of assumptions when they do offer a ton of interesting first parties and second party exclusives that people are asking more of. Good single player story driven games. They also offer stuff like destruction all stars, returnal, astro, etc. I agree there could be less over the shoulder open world ones in their AAA bucket, but they often have enough of an original hook, sell bonkers and reviewers like you are giving them 10's and GOTY awards. Why should they stop or not focus on those? L&R though. Maybe I'm the odd one out here, but I feel like the original article was way overblown. I do agree we don't need a Last of Us remake and I loved the Hottake. Great points brought up.

    I think the best case scenario with last of us remake would be an orange box style release. A PS5 version of of part 2, the part 1 remake, and factions together for $70. Though that is probably too much to ask. I would probably play it.

    Okami is my 4th favorite Zelda game of all time, and one of the only games to make me tear up. It's music and graphics and characters and themes combine into an unforgettable adventure for players that have the patience to beat it (I know it ends like 3 times). It's more funny, epic, and emotional than a game starring a silent wolf protagonist has any right to be, so I highly encourage the Allies to finish the game in HD somehow (and then listen to the gorgeous soundtrack)!

    Okami is a personal favorite, you can not beat that soundtrack and those environments! I remember when it came out, feeling that the pacing felt more like a classic N64 Zelda game than Twilight Princess (there’s something missing in pretty much all recent Zelda games post Majora’s.) Love the imperial palace arc, and there’s so much variety. Okami 2 NEEDS to happen

    The LOU discussion is very interesting, because games is a media that is dependent of the technology of the time. Take the original game as a example. In the context of the generation (PS3/PS4), it's a perfect game! What's the point in adding to something that is perfect? It can't be done. You cannot improve perfection. So, if it's the same story, it doesn't matter what they change it will never be better as the original.

    Regarding Days Gone, I think the developers working on a new IP is the right move. The scope they had for Days Gone was too large. Even with it running smoothly on PS5, it is another open world action adventure exclusive from Sony but isn't as sharp as Horizon or Ghost. Days Gone could have benefited from actually being a little more linear and less dramatic. That could've separated it from their other large cinematic Sony exclusives and led to a more fun experience. It is definitely not a bad game, but with us getting a sequel for Horizon, God of War, Spider Man and most likely Ghost of Tsushima, I think it is a good move to have Bend work on a new exclusive IP that could be a bit more different than the other Sony exclusives. I don't think Days Gone earned a sequel as much as those games I previously mentioned, and since we may be drowning in Sony sequels (that I am still very hyped for) a new IP from them is good imo.

    I have a theory that TLOU remake is actually Druckmann's idea. I have a feeling that he didnt have full control over the first game (and he certainly has a different perception of the characters than many of the game's fans do). I can imaging him using the remake in order to retcon certain elements of the characters and make them more in line with what we see in part 2.

    Last of Us remake is gonna make so much money. Sales of The Witcher 3 went up like 500% or something after the Netflix show. I bet this remake hits around the time of the HBO show. Sony will get the masses downloading a full price shiny graphics version of the game instead of the cheaper remaster. I’m not excited at all but it’s a real smart business decision and they will make bank off this. That’s why they are doing it.

    I think them moving the Last of Us remake back to Naughty Dog could mean they are doing way more than just a graphical update. There is plenty of opportunity to expand the story, lots of time jumps they could fill in. People missed not having more Joel & Ellie moments in part 2, the museum visit is pretty much everyone's favourite part... What if the remake gives us more of that? Maybe people should wait judging this until we actually know anything about it.

      @Already_ In_Use I agree that there's potential for more, but I also don't think that inherently makes it worthwhile. TLoU never felt like a game that was in need of expantion. In fact, I'd be tempted to say that its pacing and run time are pretty much perfect for the story it's trying to tell.

      ​@fran jaff I don't replay games a lot, but the Last of Us is an exception for sure. Replayed it many times. But my point is that a remake doesn't automatically mean it's gonna be the same. It could be massively expanded if they wanted. I think Ben is wrong for saying that's not possible. There is a 20 year time jump between the prologue and the first chapter. I would love to know more about what happened in that period. The same goes for every time jump in between seasons. It's not guaranteed to happen, maybe it is just a graphical update, but I would be lying if I said the possibility of it being much more isn't exciting.

    Okami's a weird one for me. Kamiya's easily one of my favourite game directors, and I love the 3D Zelda games (apart from SS), but I didn't really think much of Okami. I finished it, thought it was fine, but I would never choose to play it over a 3D Zelda. At some point down the line I think I'm going to have to replay it and see if it resonates with me more.

    I feel like a lot of the argument on a TLoU remake being unnecessary is about you not needing it right now and TLoU2 being still so fresh. But who knows when the game comes out. It might be 2 and a half years away, and by then it does feel appropriate. That is, if the game even exists. Unlike what Huber said, it was *not* announced. It's just a rumor. (I don't want to call something a leak if there is no leaked material. We didn't get any documents or footage leaked, it's just someone claiming they know someone who said it exists.)

    I have a hard time believing that LoU remake would be a smash hit. Unless there’s a major marketable difference from the original I don’t know how they convince people of the value proposition

      @berserkerdude Oh I absolutely agree, I mean I'd run over broken glass for a metal gear solid remake but it's gunna sell extremely well and of course ND will do a great job. I'm not mad cuz it's a sure fire hit but literally nobody asked for this.

      @phil barton I'm not debating the business logic behind it, I'm sure it will sell very well. I'm saying there's plenty of Sony games that would benefit a lot more from a remake than one that has already being remastered, is not even 10 years old and is already a pretty good looking game. And as the Allies said, they're not going to change the story so there really is no need.

      @berserkerdude The original LoU is free with PS plus, Sony want newcomers to spend $70 on the best version of the game. The witcher 1 isn't a household name in gaming like LoU is, also the witcher series is based on the books not the games.

      @phil barton Still unnecessary, they could still just buy the original or part 2. The Witcher 1 didn't get remade to coincide with the Netflix show.

    From my experience (I'm a Switch Axe main) the Switch Skills did feel viable, in fact, I prefer to use one that so far has been considered the worst of the pair (the Soaring Wyvern instead of the Invincible Gambit), I assume it's something that depends a lot on the balancing of the game which can never be perfect, so I assume they'll buff Switch Skills that are not used enough. For example, 40something hours into the game I swapped the Zero Sum Discharge for the Quick Discharge which deals less damage but also doesn't take as much time to land the final hit, so it has a risk-reward kind of system, I immediately understood that I preferred the more risky ZeroSum, but instead of swapping it out I did like 8 hunts keeping the newer one, it did not feel so bad that I had to change it immediately, I've not checked which is considered better, but I sticked with it for a while even if my choice was already made.

    Okami is my favourite game, and I always feel lucky that the opening never bothered me. I remember seeing a tiny image of a wolf running through a forest in an issue of a gaming magazine, and I was obsessed from then on. All throughout my childhood, my parents chose the games I played and they were mostly licensed tie ins because they didn't know any better, but Okami was the first game I chose to rent from Blockbuster when I was allowed, and it changed video games for me.

    i kinda feel Ben is wrong about switch skills , guard tackle is a proper guardpoint and can be good with the ofensive guars skill.. And rage slash is weaker than true charge slash but is more reliable since you dont move during the animation and you can aim in 360 degrees instead of the 40ish degrees in the true charge slash.

      @Twin Cherries I know what you mean, they seem to have more heart and alot of the time delve into the human condition more intimately. Those kinds of games are on the ps4 but it might not seem that way because the huge AAA games understandably get the limelight. For instance last year I played nex machina, what remains of edith finch and a night in the woods which are all fantastic niche games with creativity overflowing.

      @phil barton Yeah idk what it is about niche games but they typically just send off vibes that there's something in those games you can't get anywhere else realistically. Sonys latest stuff is extremely polished and technologically impressive, and the new ratchet does look mildly fun to me, I just dont feel any overwhelming need to reach into that ecosystem personally. The playroom packin title was super cool though, I hope they make more games like that. Bloodborne is definitely up there on my list but I already have a million games to play so I can wait some time before really needing to play it. It does look stunning, though. Arguably even the most compelling looking first party title of any company in the past decade or so.

    Large company wants to put out content that makes large profits. Not surprising at all. Sony's focused on large blockbusters for years now and it makes sense for them to continuing doing so (first party).

    I love Doom 64, played it for the first time last year. It blew me away, that final boss room is really brutal and a lot of fun to accomplish, very much like the Ivory King fight in Dark Souls 2 Scholar of the First Sin. Nightdive did a great job converting Doom 64, even replicating the try-point texture filtering of the N64. Don't love the music, though, and I preferred to loop the soundtrack from the original Doom. Doom 64 needs music of some kind because there's really no ambient noise like you have in a modern game. Nightdive has also just converted Shadow Man, the N64 and Dreamcast classic, and I'm excited to give it another playthrough.

      Maybe in the case of opinions and such, but if you're talking about bug reports, they can be a decent indicator. If you see a couple people having an issue, "eh", but if it's hundreds and hundreds, then there's reason to be concerned and the game overall had a lot of server issues since launch anyway.

    re; the last of us conversation Games never go away anymore, a Skyrim remaster/remake would blow peoples dicks off if it wasn't re-released every six months for the last decade. The last of us was made, won all its awards and immediately got a 'remaster' on a console that came out months later, got a sequel and now a remake on the next console. I'm all for backwards compatibility, but so many games are just there in the forefront across generations now, it's not going back to replay GTA San Andreas, Vice City or GTA3 for $10 on ps4 for nostalgia it's literally just keep playing your GTAV account from PS3 era.

      @James Dayton if you wanna talk marketing and appeal, there's a lot going for it 1. Great soundtrack (this part markets itself) 2. 2B (I know it's a meme but it's also undoubtedly truth, I'd have a hard time imagining her NOT being a big factor to the game's success) 3. Yoko Taro (based crazy moonman grabs attention real well) 4. Critical praise, even if you didn't like it I think it's a critical darling for a reason, there's a lot that the game does and there is an abundance of memorable moments even if it isn't perfect. There are also things like the platinum games combat, world design, and quirky characters that add to just making the game look appealing even if you don't end up liking it. Of course a part of it is being at the right place at the right time but it's pretty incredible that launching in spring 2017 of all times (especially for a niche Japanese game) it really ended up holding its own weight. I dunno how far you got and you're not alone in not liking the game but I think for many of its fans they probably weren't immediately endeared with it either. I won't tell you to just play 60 more hours, people have different tastes, but I think those that like it enough to get 20 or 30 hours in will often be in love with it once the credits roll. But hey, I personally just don't get the appeal for GoW(2018) or Xenoblade 2 so I've been there bro.

      @Charlie Wood Hi I'm somebody 👋 and I think the game is great. It's an instant cult classic. It's got the anime bonkers story, it's character and enemy design are striking, the soundtrack is fantastic, it has that minimilist art style that is pleasing on the eye almost Sega like and not to mention all the endings. It's a very thought provoking game that has interesting themes like existentialism, free will, love etc. My only complaint really is the combat could be deeper.

      7 open critic isn't even that bad. IMO, that score is spot on. It's a mediocre game. What you need to realize is that mediocre games or lower scoring games can still be great fun. It's just that a review takes everything into account. If someone hated the story or how long and repetitive the game is, it can drop the score quite significantly, but that doesn't take away from the gameplay or whatever else is keeping you playing and having fun.
