This remake is going to bomb and backfire at whoever greenlit the game. Thing is, the franchise is dead after TLoU2's fiasco. I don't see the game selling well.Oh, and the Days Gone sequel is seemingly cancelled...
NO! NO! NO!
When will companies learn that banking off of nostalgia doesn't always work!?

Both the first game and the second game sold pretty well, but the thing is, The Last of Us Remastered was also released for PS4 (which is playable on PS5 via BC, but don't quote me on that, dunno if it works).That game only came out a few years back. I never even played it. Is this because the sequel flopped or something? I don't know, I'd heard it wasn't as good or there was definitely some hoo-ha about it.
@Morgan raised a good point in the other thread. That companies should invest in remaking failed products instead rehashing successes.Honestly, devoting time to remaking games that people don't like, in an endeavor to make them better, would certainly work well instead of relying constantly on nostalgia bait. It's amazing how quickly video games as a medium descended into the same pitfalls as its elder brothers, filmmaking and comic books.
Then again, "remake a bad [thing]" is how we got two terrible Dark Phoenix movies, so...
Short answer: Yes.That game only came out a few years back. I never even played it. Is this because the sequel flopped or something? I don't know, I'd heard it wasn't as good or there was definitely some hoo-ha about it.
Go to the owner, and complain, bro. Keep this ****head in check. If he publicly berates you, report it. Tell the owner I sent you. He knows who I am.I don't think I will post on GameFAQs anymore. The users on there are pretty ignorant, to be honest. I've had too many unpleasant replies from people on there, whether I discuss The Last of Us, or Resident Evil Village. I've gave up thinking they will ever be rational.
Like, if I make posts going into a bit of a tangent, they all act like shills do and act like opinions are taboo, and refer to me as a casual fan. And if I embed videos, that are not necessarily my own videos, they keep on saying I am self-promoting or spamming. Even though it's being done to prove a point, you're not supposed to be doing this.
Not to mention, they're just outright cheeky anyway. I've also got to be careful in any case, as some Australian idiot called "Alfred Gimpy" watches my YouTube channel like a hawk. He used to run a website called Capcom Central years ago, but it has been gone for a long time by this point. Now because he doesn't have a life, all he does is pester me online. This guy is an adult, but he signs into joyfreak.com all of the time, just to read my posts, and even edits wikis just to be subscribed to the articles I contribute to as well. You would think fully grown men would like, you know, be able to act a little more mature.
Talk to 'em!!This is some bullshit!
*busy taking notes on what the swear filter does and doesn't catch* Mmhmm, mmhmm....I boycotted Naughty Dog for their crunch abuse, so I give no ****s for their pathetic remake. I've already played or playing better remakes:
Sony has an obsession of only focusing on "Blockbusters", and it's going to bite them in the ass hard. Niche studios and games are just as important, even more so than the big guys. I'll still buy good niche games from other Japanese or Western developers, if Sony's cowardly dicks and clits won't do it.

David Ballard (@Dbal) said:It's been 2 and a half years since I was sexually harassed at Naughty Dog by a lead. And 2 years and 2 months since I told Sony PlayStation HR that I was sexually harassed and then promptly fired. I still don't feel like I have the dignity or respect because of it.
David Ballard (@Dbal) said:Thank you. His name is Robert Cogburn. Former Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra accused me of wanting to fire Robert when I told him I couldn’t work with him anymore. HR was present. And it was Sony PlayStation HR Heather Zavadil who I told about the harassment.

Thanks for everything.
You're talking to a guy that runs a network of gaming sites. This ain't my first rodeo. Admins on xenForo boards can make life hard for even the biggest harasser. Yes, i know there's a VPN, ISP subnets, or TOR routes, but you can play cat and mouse with these trolls. I do it every day with Spammers.Banning somebody's IP address, whether it's a proxy or their own ISP issued subnet, likely won't do anything. In this day of age, there's so many free VPN services available, that it's so easy for abusers to keep on coming back. Hell, even Opera has one included. For every IP address you block, they can come back within minutes with another proxy. So if you added 82.* to a block list, you'd be unfairly banning any normal users with that IP range.
