  1. So I'm not going to do this myself but... Here's something someone with more time can do.



    3 Return flights to Tokyo, from LA. (+ Flights for translator and camera crew) So let's be ultra conservative and say 5 flights total.

    Lets say it was 3 nights at a hotel in Tokyo (find average price for a cheap hotel)

    Shopping trip (prices of all the merch they buy is on ebten).

    + Salary for person who edited the video together. 


    = Total cost of the video.


    For 2 seconds of gameplay footage.

    What a bargain!

    When did he insult people?

    He basically just dismissed any criticism of the Sonic design as being hysterical fans who needed to relax, then when it was pointed out respected industry professionals had raised some key points, he included them as being hysterical...

    Then started to block everybody who said hat was being very disrespectful.

    Should point out, those people who he included in his 'relax' manifesto included Yuji Naka and Naoto Oshima. 

    Then claimed he only blocked people who had been abusive towards him... despite the fact... Nobody had been abusive towards him before he started his mass blocking, he just got caught out and didn't like it.

    Sigh... So now we're ignoring what Patrick Casey said last year 

    Remind me again why he's earned any right to be taken seriously? 

    The man insulted everyone who had a problem with the movie, then threw a tantrum and went on a mass block of anyone who pointed out the fact he was being disrespectful to people.

    I mean, if we're really doing this... @Mayor D did this with results that don't exactly support your viewpoint, for what it's worth. 

    It's not worth it at all. Both for or against 'Oh it's Sonic'. 

    Because you'll either get people who don't realise it's Sonic at all, like my dad.

    Or you'll get people who go "Oh that's Sonic' 

    Then you have a sliding scale in between... It's at the point where peoples responses become more of a question like "Is that Sonic?" That's the point where people think they know who it is, but are still unsure. Which is pretty poor showing when this is supposed to be an iconic recognisable character.

    Have to agreed, because all of this is just bringing more attention to the movie. 

    And in the meantime completely souring the reputation of the brand.

    ...Not sure if serious? Y'all are complaining about him looking like a guy in a suit... But this is LITERALLY that. This render literally looks like a body builder wearing a fur suit. I actually hate this design. 


    I just.. I can't. If this is what constitutes their idea "done right" I don't even...

    Fifty Thousand Pounds says that if they had revealed that design you'd be practically orgasmic about it right now.

    For the same reason why Captain America has a wing decal on his helmet instead of literal pointed wings like he does in the old comics. The same reason why Thor is not wearing bell bottom yellow boots. The same reason why Batman and Superman no longer wear trunks. It's about translating the design to live action in a way that updates it but pays homage 

    You just defended a character dipping their hands into paint to make it look like they're wearing gloves...

    You just did that.

    So I managed to play the game about a month before you did, and I have to say I pretty much agree with everything you said.

    I had the game for a year before finally deciding to play it, I honestly didn't know what to expect, just that it always seemed to be a bit of a 'darling' on Resetera and a few other places, so I picked it up.

    Well... Once I got out of my apartment, which was an amazing reveal! I'm so happy that wasn't spoilt for me! I... Really started to find myself becoming a bit bored, I don't know why but it just wasn't 'clicking' with me, but then slowly everything started to fall into place. 

    Aside from the truly science fiction atmosphere, you begin to see just how well they designed the environments, it really is a game that you can just spend hours exploring in because once you find a new route you end up going down a rabbit hole discovering new hidden rooms and more bits of the story.

    The big comparison is to Bioshock 1 and System Shock 2, but Prey feels different in many ways, the big one as mentioned is how if you clear an area of enemies, over time they'll re-spawn but will have changed slightly. 

    Oh and I loved how as the infestation began to damage more parts of the space station this has implications on some parts of it which you can choose to fix or even prevent! Though it did kick me in the teeth when I entered that room full of gas and couldn't use my guns!

    The main problem the game has is once you start to find NPC's, they're... not well done, aside from the fact they often talk over each other, they're so lifeless, when you find that stronghold in the cargo bay, it really does illustrate how little thought went into them, then if you get both the doctor and the lady in your office... when you talk to them... Good god it's bad. 

    But the biggest thing for me that I started to love was how so many 'locked' rooms became a puzzle to try and figure out a way in. There was just so many ways to gain access to some rooms they felt like their own miniature puzzles. When you finally get access it was a huge moment of euphoria. Even if there's not much inside the locked room, when you figure out a way inside you're so excited.

    I uploaded a video today exploring about every locked room in the game is a puzzle and how the game educates the player so subtly, which can probably explain what I mean by the puzzle rooms better than this post can.


    But the main thing, Prey just feels like the first truly science fiction game for years, you really do feel like you're on a space station in the future, they really nailed the world building with this one. 

    Just... Play Prey!
