PS3 Okami HD

192 posts in this topic

I bought the Wii version after all the hype but it was unbelievably tedious. Didn't get beyond a couple of hours (mainly endless conversations from what I remember). I suppose it got good just after that point.

It is a little slow to start but when you get going it's so good.

Same here, except I kept coming back to it after several month gaps and didn't have a clue what I was meant to be doing which meant I ended up playing that first couple of hours about three sodding times. I never went back for a fourth, but was considering it on Dolphin at some point.

Okami was a little bit too long, clocking in at 40-50 hours for me (46? I can't remember) but it really was wonderful.
[/quote]

That was my biggest problem with it. It was a wonderful game but honestly the thoughts of having to fight Orochi another ten times means i probably wont be buying this again.

That article says it has Move support so I assume it will be a Wii port with the changed end credits

Hmm, thanks, but since I became a game developer myself, I've been trying to stick with getting my games legitimately (would feel like a hypocrite otherwise). Still, if I ever go back home and fire up my old PS2, would be an interesting try. Almost regret getting Samurai Warriors 2 instead of Okami back when I had the chance :/
[/quote]

Surely if you had the original game that's " legit " .

Anyway , add me to to the ones wanting a Pc version .

Mind , I still probably wouldn't play it - I had the ps2 and wii ones and never played much of either ! ( seemed decent enough though )

I don't think so, the 'rice paper' filter seems to be intact, which it wasn't in the Wii and it has pad controls, so either a bit of column A and a bit of column B or they've started from scratch with the PS2 code.

And the list of PS2 games that are crying out for the PS3 HD Classics treatment adds a very big & important member. Not many left on that list now surely?

The only thing that could have made this better was if it was a "Clover Collection" & had Viewtiful Joe & Godhand too. Oh well.

Hurray! This is awesome news! Shame there's no boxed edition, though. Hopefully there'll be a Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty style situation and Europe will get boxed copies ripe for importing.

Hmm, that's an idea... but now, would a PS2 disk work on my Chinese laptop, I wonder....?
[/quote]
A disc is a disc, it would work with PCSX2 on your laptop if your laptop can read discs, but surely you can rip that disc and play it from your HDD instead because then it performs about a million times better in PCSX2? The basic idea is (and I do wonder why I have to spell it out to a developer :lol: ) that you bought and paid for that game, that you choose to play it on PCSX2 in glorious HD with all kinds of fancy AA instead of on your PS2 in low-res doesn't matter...

It's basically three-games-in-one. You could just play a third of it and get your money's worth.

Oh my gawwwwwdddddd I can't stop wanting this. It's kind of depressing that I'm more excited about this than any new game coming out - but then Okami is a special case.

And no, I don't think my PC would cope with emulating the PS2 version.

Single-core 4 lyfe, yo!

I played it on the PS2 at the time and couldn't understand why people were going crazy about it either. It bored me to tears.

Excellent. I can now buy it for a third time and not play it. Shame there's no 360 version.

What's wrong with the Wii end credits?

Yeah, if this was given a Vita release, I'd be all over it. As it stands, I struggle to find time to play 10 hour games on the TV nowadays, so a 50 hour epic is out of the question.

Clover weren't involved with the Wii version, and so their glorious ending credits FMV was removed, or something.

      PS4 Controller Issues FAQ
       

      Touchpad, Options and Share buttons, headphone jack, speaker, better triggers/sticks.

      Cool Shit!

      Suspend/Resume - Stop your game and put the PS4 into a low power state, pick up immediately where you left off when you come back.
      Share - Post screenshots and video from your play sessions. It looked like you could wind back through your last ten minutes of gameplay, edit/trim it down and upload it. They did this onstage with Killzone: Shadow Fall.
      Video Streaming - Stream your game out live to other users on the PS4 or ustream. People watching can give you tips like "Dude Look Out!" and even take control of your game temporarily to get you past a tough section.
      Gakai Being Fast - The plan is to be able to select a demo and instantly begin streaming it. You'll also be able to start playing games while they download.

      The Games!

      Love it.

      One thing I noticed, it appears to show a user streaming picture-in-picture, showing their gameplay AND their face via the new camera at the same time. Don't think they've mentioned that yet :)

      Is it wrong that I'm most excited about hearing the startup sound for the first time?!

      It looks quite a lot like big picture mode too.



      Original post, rumoured specs etc:

      [spoiler]
      Sony have announced an event on the 20th February 2013, with this headline:

    • Sony Pre-TGS Presser: P5, YS, DQ...
      By Robo_1
      A lacklustre show still managed to deliver some quality content, the highlights of which were:
       
      YS
      Everyone's Golf
      God Eater 2
      New Gundam
      Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War
      Yakuza 0
      Kingdom Under Fire 2
      Disagea 5
      Dead or Alive 5
      Resident Evil Revelations 2
      P5
      Dragon Quest: Heroes
       
      You can watch a dubbed version of the conference at the U-Stream link below:
       
      http://www.ustream.tv/channel/sceja-press-conference-english?ftcnt=ps:com_sceja_en
       
       
      Pre-Conference Intro:
       
      [spoiler]
      Last year Sony delivered an impressive pre-TGS press conference, announcing new PS4 games such as Guilty Gear Xrd, Lily Bergamo, Natural Doctrine and a new Gundam, as well as a healthy mix of Vita titles, such as Phantasy Star Nova, Yakuza Ishin, Danganronpa: Another Episode and Terraria.
       
      They also found time to reveal the Vita Slim and surprised everyone by announcing a new console in the form of Vita TV (now rebranded as Playstation.TV in the West).
       
      For those who would like to catch up with everything that was announced last year, you can watch the conferences and coverage here:
       
      Five Hour IGN Coverage:
       
      http://youtu.be/qKCzt3W5fuc
       
      Gamespot Conference Coverage:
       
      http://youtu.be/wiRl-61135g
       
       
      With PS4, (and indeed the entire home console business) struggling in Japan, all eyes will be on Sony's ability to deliver knockout titles for their new console and get sales moving.
       
      A fresh look at the new Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts sounds like a safe bet, Gravity Rush 2 seems like a cert, and there's whispers that we'll be seeing some big announcements from Team Ninja along with what Famitsu is teasing as a "Godzilla sized announcement" during their presser.
       
      Sony themselves are saying that new game reveals were held back from Gamescom to be shown at TGS, and whilst Shu has conceded that there won't be any further news about The Last Guardian, he is promising a PS4 focussed event with lots of new game announcements. It's also likely that we'll see the first fruits of the Japanese indie scene on PS4/Vita, which Sony has been quietly championing.
       
      We'll get a better idea at what Japanese indies are bringing to Playstation during the last night of TGS, when Playism Games will be hosting the Playstation x Playism Indie Stream. During this event (which sounds more like a party for indie developers to meet up and discuss ideas) we are promised a look at what Sony's plans are for Japanese indies, as well as a few big announcements.
       
      Sony's presser will also be coming off the back of their sponsorship of Japan's popular Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai show, which makes use of PS4's new Dynamic Lighting AR Tech. The tech looks very sophisticated, and its hopeful that it will make an appearance in game form during the keynote.
       
      So all in all, it sounds like Sony have a lot to show this year. Alarm clocks at the ready.  :)
      [/spoiler]
       
      Neither Nintendo or Microsoft will be hosting a TGS press conference this year.

      I dunno, I don't really know what's going on. I just wanted the new thread glory.
    • Do you care about gesture control?
      By Mentazm
      As per title. MS are putting all their eggs in one basket by bundling the Kinect, that no gamer I know wants, with the Xbone and adding a hefty margin on to the price.
       
      My question is, and one MS should have asked as a dashboard poll on 360 or something, Do you care about gesture control?
       
      I don't. I feel like an idiot shouting voice commands, I hate controlling games with gestures. Nothing is as accurate as a pad or keyboard and mouse.

As usual, shake salt liberally, but the below is what's rumoured to be coming: 40+ Exclusives Coming New Sony Santa Monica Game Will Be Shown Playstation World Detailed See The Console Amazing Big Vita Title Final Fantasy Versus & Kingdom Hearts 3 Demon Souls 2   What They Need To Show:   There are some very obvious questions which Sony will finally have to answer. It's already been stated that PS4 won't require an online connection, so they should be good from that angle, but the question of DRM will hang over their entire conference unless they get it out of the way early. If it's good news, expect them to make it a cornerstone of their conference announcement, if it's bad, then we'll probably only hear about it in the interviews which follow.   PS4 is obviously going to be the major focus, but pleeeeease don't ignore the Vita this year.
