Great idea, Mad!



Dragon Quest XI has been announced for PS4/3DS/NX.

Two different games based on the same story similar to Ni no Kuni.
Both games slated for 2016 release to coincide with series 30th anniversary.
The two games will still have the same core staff working on them.
Is being made for the PS4 and 3DS (probably New3DS)
PS4 version is developed with the assistance of Orca.
PS4 version runs on UE4
PS4 version is open(-ish?) world. Similar to DQVIII
3DS version is developed with the assistance of Toy Logic.
3DS Version presents a classic 2D Sprite style on the bottom screen.
3DS version will have 2D sprite battles + random battles when playing with the D-Pad and 3D battles when playing with the circle-pad.

Environments look amazing. Jak though looks a little strange. He was always looking more adult as the games go along but that just looks off.
Would still kill for this to be made one day :(

Yeah, he looks too realistic on those first two pics.

Jak and Daxter is my favourite Naughty Dog series. I've always admired them for what they've done with the series. Turning Jak and Daxter, a traditional platformer, into Jak 2, a much darker sandbox game.

I've always had a slight preference for the Ratchet & Clank games.

Anyone seen the stuff MS showed off at their Gamescom conference?
Pretty good overall all and so happy that Halo Wars 2 got announced :D
Scalebound looked incredibly underwhelming though. Everything from the gameplay to the main protagonist to the style just wasn't impressive to me.
Thankfully Crackdown and Quantum Break look good :)

Apparently Fallout 4 will have no level cap :hmm:

dayum.

They also said that you can play for 400 hours and not see everything.
I think there is a point though where too much is too much lol. A big part of me actually enjoys finishing games and seeing everything it has to offer. The Witcher 3 is already so hard for me to pick up and continue just cause it is so big.
