Sony is working out of masterpieces to promote once more
Spot Dodge Podcast discusses the most effective remakes and remasters of all time
Welcome again! It’s a new Tuesday, which implies tonight there will probably be a brand new episode of Spot Dodge Podcast completely on Destructoid. Matters: With the controversy across the internet relating to Sony probably remaking/remastering Horizon Zero Daybreak, I assumed it’d be enjoyable to do a roundtable dialogue about what our favourite and truly needed remakes/remasters have been all through the years.
Sony’s new obsession
The dialogue round 2013’s The Final of Us remake hasn’t stopped since Sony revealed it. Many players deem it completely pointless. Now, as talked about above, Sony is rumored to be remaking 2017’s Horizon Zero Daybreak. A a lot newer and much more pointless sport to remake. The extremity of this remake/remaster remains to be a thriller — It’s stated to obtain up to date character fashions, textures, and lighting. Akin to the aforementioned Final of Us Half 1. Evidently, it’s not an excellent search for Sony. And brings the corporate’s artistic investments into query.
Sony is squeezing its beloved AAA titles dry, which is smart, these video games are largely unmatched and it needs as many players as doable to purchase/play them. However whereas extracting as a lot worth from them as doable, the corporate retains making boneheaded selections like charging $70 for The Final of Us Half 1 with no improve path for many who purchased the sport a couple of times earlier than.
With all that stated, Sony’s slate of beforehand launched “masterpieces” is working low — There aren’t many gems left that wouldn’t want a whole retooling within the trendy period. Bloodborne and God of Conflict (2018) are the ultimate choices that come to thoughts. So even when the corporate does proceed to go down this street, it gained’t be for for much longer.
Our pretty forged from across the internet: Brett Medlock (me) and Mary Stowe from Destructoid, John Friscia from The Escapist, Greg Bargas from PC Invasion, and Brett Larsen, our further particular visitor. Behind the scenes, now we have Gamur’s Eric Weichhart live-editing the present.
