The fact that Naughty Dog is doing the remaster makes me feel like it will be a damn good job. I can't wait to see what they put out.

Very curious about what changes in gameplay are made as well. There were somethings in the early reveals that weren't in the final game. They could add a lot more dialogue and situations when you hold somebody hostage. Add in female enemies as well.

Most games are made with higher quality assets and then scaled down, but I bet in this case they were thinking about the ps4 version the entire time. How good it ends up looking is going to depend on how much work they put into it....most remakes are pretty quick and dirty.

So basically since 2013 they've been at this...this had better be running on a new engine after nearly a year additional dev.

They stated a while ago they were upgrading their engine for next gen, not starting fresh.

In other words, it'll be running on a new engine.

I don't think people know what the term "engine" is and just throw it around. New engines don't lead to better graphics. Engines can evolve from one gen to another.

So anybody have any tips for multiplayer? I get my butt handed to myself readily on it. Seems there is some leveling involved that I may be way behind the curve on, or does that not matter, it's all about what you collect and craft in the match or points you spent for cool gear?

Warning: I make a lot of mistakes but occasionally I learn from them!

Some of both. Certain gear and perks help a lot. It really comes down to how you're most comfortable playing.

I found myself most comfortable in a sniper/support role, so I went for higher-level spotting perks so I could tag enemies from high ground and let the shotgun & rifle guys on my team know exactly where the enemies are after I spot them. While that didn't do much to boost my own K/D ratio, it made it much easier for my teammates to kill others and win the match, and I'd still get my fair share of headshots.

If you like to smoke bomb and shiv, you can work toward perks that let you start each match with a shiv already on hand, and I think you can boost the range of your smoke bombs too.

I'd say experiment with different playstyles to see what works for you, then cater your loadout to that style. In the early going I think you can get better weapons by using a prepared loadout, but past a certain point you'll be able to customize with better gear.

Pretty big SPOILER in the video so I recommend skipping if you haven't played the game. For me it takes the excitement down a little. Of course it is youtube and I'll need to see more. To me it seems like the same asset quality as the PS3 version just at a higher resolution, changed up foliage some and they changed some of the geometry to smooth at the edge. This is only tiny sample and of course youtube doesn't really do justice to visuals.

Screen comparison somebody made:

It's almost impossible to be sure cause the source is a heavily compressed YouTube video, but it looks like they went as far as to round out the beveled edge of the stone, plus add some more foliage. Ellie's hair also looks like it has more strands. That's major attention to detail...just based on that alone it's probably going to be the most heavily upgraded next gen remaster to date.

Yeah the changed geometry (increased polygons on the environment) was not expected by me at least. I think they could have made a better choice for their reveal but this could be a tiny teaser and more of a chance to talk about the 5,000 awards they received for a couple of minutes wink.gif

I really need to see more before judging this, although I'll say trailer isn't doing the remaster any favors.

I think an official gameplay video will help. Obviously the announcement trailer appears to be "scripted" and not gameplay. From what i am seeing in those screens the PS3 version seems to have the better character models, though the fabric on the shirts might just be more realistic in the remaster. I still will buy this as it will eliminate one more reason to hang on to my PS3!

Edit: Ok, Ellie's hair might seem a bit more realistic from that screen cap...

GameSpot is reporting that stores are advertising a June 20 release:
Quote:
Target, GameFly, and Best Buy are all listing the game as coming out June 20, 2014. However, Amazon lists the game's release date as December 31, 2014.

The June date may be a placeholder or just a guess from someone entering in release dates for the game, but it's interesting that it matches across three major retailers. We've reached out to the stores and Sony for confirmation, and we'll update this story when we have more details.

The date is notable both for falling on a Friday and coming the week after this year's E3.

Releasing in a little over two months and a year after the PS3 version. I'm OK with that, I just hope they don't burn a lot of time on it at E3.

I could see them spending a reasonable time with it. There are a lot of Xbox 360 owners that made the jump to PS4 this generation and this will be a great game for them and anybody else that hasn't experienced. I can definitely sell some consoles for those who still haven't made the transition to this generation as well. The PS4 version of Tomb Raider is fantastic so I am optimistic Naughty Dog will do a great job as well.

You're hopes are higher for E3 than mine I think, I feel MOST the time at E3 is burned with superfluous hey hey.
I'd wager Sony could not even spend $5K on marketing and still sell a million copies. Conversely, I don't think spam marketing the heck out of it will double it to 2 million.

Go Avs!

I could definitely go for a June 20th release... I have been wanting to play this since last year, but my PS3 getting flooded ruined that.

I think the Wings switched to the East just in time, they would not of made it in the West... but in saying that, 23 straight years is very impressive, especially with the injuries this season.

Well said! Eastern Conference did help this season. Still a testiment to the farm club (Grand Rapids Griffins) and the coaching staff that they made it when 10 of the top players were replaced with rookies for the majority of the season.

Besides, there's not much else to root for in this town anyway! wink.gif
