Astro Bot is probably the best game of all time to be honest
« on: December 24, 2018, 12:00:35 PM »


I've only seen threads on resetera, but it definitely seems like a defining moment in my life, your life, and certainly the lives of children that have never played a platformer. After this holiday season, Im going to the store to spend time with my real family, the Playstation family, and Astro Bot.

Is that a gameplay clip? I didn't know the PS4 was powerful enough to render Shaq bots so well!

I hope in Astro Bot 2, the VR implementation allows me to know what its like being Shaq bot's penis.

I could not stop smiling when playing this game last night.  :hyper Simply the best 3D platformer yet.   Holy shit this needs a sequel on PS5 already.

Yeah, Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Bad Dream on GBA is also by them and is very very similar.

Life would be easier to comprehend if this was as overhyped as anyone would imagine, but sadly it isn't. Still not getting new hardware for a single game though.

I already have a Rift, no way i'm buying a second headset (a worse one at that) for one game.
If those fuckers at Sony hadn't paid to keep RE7 VR exclusive for Ps4, i'd be less bitter, too.

There's always emulation in 20 years time...  :-\

I thought it was only exclusive to PSVR for one year?

Me too.
So had suggested Capcom, but rumor has it Sony extended the exclusivity.
I doubt it's coming now, anyway.

Smart move for Sony.  They should try and keep it till the inevitable HD-a-fied PS5VR version drops.  Game is fucking awesome in VR.

VR seems to be tanking in general, so guess I can't say that Capcom adding support for the other headsets, which sold like dogshit in 2018, would probably have gotten many sales.
