anyone here will be getting this game ?

within 1 week -- two games that gamers waited for 10+ year will finally come out

FFXV (11/29/16) and now The Last Guardian (12/6/16)

from the gameplay it's pretty much ICO and Shadow of Collossus hybrid

i don't think this game will sell a lot of copies but it will be one of the cult games

Shadow of Colossus made it to greatest hits status on the ps2.. maybe lucky if they can sell 1 millions copies..

since it's one of the games i want to play.. i guess i'll put down $48+ tax for this game

this game looks more boxed in like ICO instead of Shadow of Colossus

so it might be around 5-6 hours long..

I think "The Last Guardian" is going on my backburner list.
So far, I'm not impressed with any of the trailers or gameplay that I've seen. I played "Shadow of Colossus" religiously, just don't get the same feeling with "The Last Guardian" (personally). I'll get it, but it won't be something I'll jump around for immediately.

Nah.

If I get the game, it will be when it's on sale or something. When The Last Guardian was initially announced I was excited for it, but with how long it's been delayed all the hype I had has disappeared. I quite literally have zero expectations for the game.

I was considering it, but ended up cancelling my preorder as I'm worried about the game's length since I don't really want to spend full price on a game rumored to be about 10 hours so long. I'll wait for reviews and some more gameplay videos before I decide to pick it up, if I do.

the gameplay is pretty much like Ico

instead grabbing Yorda's hand and run around some castle.. you are riding a chimera trying to get out of some mountain??

you can beat ICO in under 2 hours i think..

but with AI companion like Trico.. i think it will take longer

some gamers will get frustrated and just give up when Trico will not do what they want it to do. or maybe due to the gameplay mechanics

I might get around to getting it, but if it's anything like Ico or SotC, than one thing is certain.....

I have two rules with games. Never preorder a game that has had a delayed development cycle, regardless how amazing the press says it will be. Aliens Colonial Marines and No Man's Sky proved me right. I also never preorder a game that I doubt I will get my money's worth for the price tag. That comes down to how many hours of entertainment I get. So if a game is short they have to be quality hours.

Right now the game leaves me unconvinced. But if fellow gamers praise it I will be sure to pick it up. The fact that I am no interested in the concept at all doesn't help much either. But I hope it works out for those who have been waiting.

quite a few people are saying that

but i think it will have similar ending like with ico and shadow of colossus

i'll buy this game 48+ tax to support the developer.. giving Team ICO doesn't release that many games

unlike Assassin creed, COD, etc.. series that coming out every year..

the game was delayed multiple times.. but it was not in development the whole time.. and they jumped from PS3 to PS4 instead.. at least that part is true

now.. the only game left that i've been waiting for would be Persona 5 !

both of these games were announced for the PS3 .. instead coming out on PS4 3 years later

the reviews for the last guardian are out
http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/the-last-guardian

according to hltb
the game is around 11 1/2 hours (? they changed to it 8hr and 14 minutes now)
https://howlongtobeat.com/game.php?id=9995

that's probably the first play through

i guess was wrong then.. i thought it will be around 5-6 hours.. a bit longer than i predicted it..

Put a few of hours into it so far.

It's very much a new generation of Ico in that the whole thing feels very cinematic and artistic in ways that don't always support the gameplay. As in Ueda's previous games, the control is a little clunky and slippery in a way that feels very realistic but also slightly frustrating. It also has some technical issues particularly involving the frame rate not being locked in. It certainly hasn't made anything I've seen/done so far unplayable but it is very noticeable in places.

I have no idea how far into the game I actually am but there are Trophies for just finishing the game, finishing it in less than 30 hours, less than 15 hours and less than 5 hours so I'm guessing there is a realistic possibility that some players will actually take more than 15 (or even 30) hours to complete it. From what I can tell so far, it's not really a game that will be super long but those Trophies definitely give credence to the fact that it may be a longer/beefier experience than a lot of people may have expected.

Overall, if you were someone who enjoyed Ico or Shadow of the Colossus and wanted more of a similar experience, I think you're likely to find a lot to like here, technical issues and all. If, however, you didn't like Ico or SotC there really isn't anything in Last Guardian that I've seen so far that will touch you differently.

the average playtime is around 8 hour

so beating it once you will unlock both the 15 and 30 hr playtime trophy to then

Team Ico games always have control problems.. since it's the PS4 game.. maybe they can patch it up later

i heard about the frame rate problem from other players as well.. even on the PS4 pro in 4K

the best mode to play is on the PS4 Pro at 1080p.. the option is not in the game but on the system instead

set the system to output to 1080p instead of 4K if you have a 4K tv..

the system or tv might auto adjust.. so adjust both to tv and pspro to output at 1080p instead of 4k

i thought for sure i would be ok with the PS4 slim.. but looks like i'll get the pro instead (have to sell my ps4 slim first though).

1080p gaming at a fixed/stable 60fps or 30fps might be doable vs 4K at 60fps..

games do load faster on the PS4 pro due to SATA III plus record at 1080p instead of 720p..

Yep, looks like the game is as short as I'd thought it'd be so I'll just wait for a sale before I bother with it.

My copy of the game is arriving on Friday, I kind of regret shelling out $100+ for the collector's edition though.
