So I recently finished Knack 2 and I have to say that I think it's a good sign that we can expect some great things from Studio Japan for the PS5.
It's not a perfect game. But when you consider the improvements over the first (virtually every way); the fact that it is fun to play; and how long it is (maybe to a fault), I think it's clear that the PS4 gen has been a stage of establishing the base for hopefully bigger and better things to come.

I don't think Knack 3 is on the cards (which I feel is a bit of a pity because there's still room for improvement) but I can definitely see Studio Japan getting 2 major internal releases out for the PS5. Maybe 3.

imho Japan Studios improved a lot from PS3 times to PS4 even though I did love Pupetteer.

Thank. You.

I'd love a Knack 3 but we know it's never gonna' happen... and seems quite a few key people have left Studio Japan too, so hopefully they can be replaced with some great talent as well as the people still there and make some great games for the PS5!

Yeah I think that won't be an issue. Honestly, as long as the Knack 2 director is still there, (Takamitsu Iijima) then I think all is still ok. Of course, I can't say for certain.

There's no denying how great Puppeteer is (a crime a port doesn't exist tbqh) but I totally agree with the improvement they have shown. A lot of their internal PS3 stuff, while very cool and varied, is just of a much smaller scale to what they did on the PS4. 



Knack, lol.



Man, my poor PS5 does NOt get any downtime. If my brother isn't playing on it, then I'm playing remotely on it or my roommate is playing it or we're all watching netflix on it. I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say it gets 12-16 hours of use a day. It has had some crashes, but luckily it rebounds quickly and easily.

Mine is getting a lot of action as well (Sackboy and Crash 4 are a lot of fun guys!). We're both working from home as Denmark has pretty much closed down again. It's a perfect thing to have during a pandemic.

A week and no new posts! Anywho.. Looks like Santa Monica Studio are hiring for a new announced game :o

What do you guys think a new IP?



Got my PS5 on Friday- absolutely incredible! Platinumed Astro- such an amazing game and brought back a lot of great memories over the years. The Dualsense functions are great - see a lot of developer potential there. Miles Morales is a ton of fun. Got Sackboy's Big Adventure to play coop with my son - he loves it. The Pathless is pretty good so far too- I'm still early in it. Demon's Souls stopped loading for some reason - I looked online and it seems to be an issue for some with the game - not the PS5 hardware. Hopefully they can fix it soon.



I am such a fool for so many reasons.

1 - I have a Ps5, but i barely use it. My sister and roommate have been using it more than me, lately.
2 - What playing I do has MOSTLY been through remote play (Introvert here, I prefer my game room compared to my Living Room. My Ps4 is in the game room, my PS5 is in the living room so people can share).
3 - I have owned Spider-Man since 2018 and I just started playing it for the first time since getting the PS5 remaster. Holy shit what a fun game.
4 - I keep forgetting about the adaptive triggers and haptics, and I keep thinking I broke something every time the controller grinds or clicks

Seriously makes a world of difference when you have the actual PS5 on a 4K TV as opposed to remote play. And so many great games. I got a lot of catching up to do.

Just platined Medievil (and gave a look at the original which is made available when you meet some conditions on the remake), and let me say the remake is quite pleasing to play even though some glaring mistakes in level design and gameplay. But the few moments I tried the original I would say thanks god I didn't tried at that time or I would possibly have bad memories about it.

I know this isn't a popular opinion, but PS1 games (And N64 games) Have NOT aged well. that entire generation was a bust for me.
