Art-style says nothing about how mature a game is. CoD, for example, is a game played by many kids. 

COD is a horrible example btw. Its art style is not childish at all, but if COD is your example then what about GTA?  Lots of kids play that too. Should they? How young is acceptable?

Who is playing the game has nothing to do with how mature the game is. What the game is in itself, defines its maturity. I never said Zelda was only for kids, I just said it looks less mature than Horizon. Zelda is fantastic don't get me wrong. I'm just saying Horizon reminds me of a more mature version of Zelda. Not better or worse.

Who considers GTA to be a mature game? It's super childish.

Are you the one posting about it in hopes it'll happen...is it a joke or is it ACTUALLY, for sure, fore sure happening.

It's happening, Shu told me.

I heard they've added a secret ending to LoD where you fight this Brazilian half man half cat boss. The final secret boss literally stops you from finishing the game and traps the player in an infinity loop so you have to play the game forever.

And they say pc gamers are obsessed with graphics.

It could be 8k with 3TB worth of high quality textures and it would still run like shit. Not being able to use a mouse for this shooter is just the cherry on top.

Yes, it is a crime that this game, like all good console exclusive games, is confined on a single bad platform with no choice whatsoever.

Ick, no thank you.

I mean...we could just enjoy game on the platform they're made for. Seems a lot less stressful than getting pissy about it.

^
Really no point in complaining. The platform they choose is the platform they choose. cannot change that

.....So basically lisenting to BraLoD ....forever? 

 

Oh god ...please no.

 

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

 

You've all been warned! 



Woah, neat. When he was changing the time of day, the direction the light was hitting the clouds actually changed... That's actually pretty impressive, not something you usually see in games. I wonder how they're rendering those clouds?



Photos and static images for this game look great. But every youtube video I see, seems like the framerate and resolution is bad. Images just don't seem crisp somehow. Hope playing live will be good on a big tv. Anyone know resolution?

You can actually finish the Brazilian Cat Dragoon fight, you just have to wait until LoD 2 comes to be able to do it, tho, you need an item that you can only get there, and pass it from the PS4 to the Pocket Station and use on your PS1, that item makes him friendly and he beats both Faust and Melbu from 11000 years ago with a timespace bending addition and goes home. The item is a LoD 2 copy, btw, he gets happy and go home play it, that's all he ever wanted to begin with.

Poojippoo? Are you new? ....to games? It is epic tech alright that we get a day night cycle in the photo mode but I'm feeling like I wann

Day/night cycle isn't anything new (still neat in photo mode), but I'm specifically talking about the clouds. Often times clouds in games are pretty basic, sometimes just straight up photos they slap on a sky map and cheat it when the time of day changes, but these clouds actually at least have the appearance of volume, soft light and shadow changing based on the sun's position, and even having a "halo" effect when the sun is behind them. There's a number of ways they could be achieving this effect, but it is impressive and some nice attention to detail.
