For a moment there I got excited in the same way Knack 2 excites me.

We should probably figure out why something like Knack 2 excites you. 

Might ask you to know why you're interested into somebody else's excitement.

I knew was a joke thread coz who in they're right fucking mind would make a sequel to that game :|

The company who makes Knack 2?

LOL.... thats actually pretty funny.

 

Back to OP

Nier is make or break, go big or go home type of scenario. After a string of underwhelming titles after Bayonetta 2, Platinum could be in danger if Nier fails. I really hope they don't go belly up, as supposedly they have made great games



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Well, they obviously would have to play around with some assets to make it look different and don't follow the exact storyline, but at least the whole work wouldn't be lost.



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

I think the amount of effort you'd have to put in revoking it, you might as well go do something else. You would just be wasting time trying to change the original vision, just to find some dumb workaround which doesn't necessarily have to work, with a different name. At that point, you can't even say it's Scalebound originally.

All I can see from this idea is throwing money around for no reason.
