RE: Amnesia: Collection announced for PS4

That was an absolutely disgusting trailer, way to devalue what the Amnesia games were about.

Fudge me.

*Rolls eyes

Yeah cuz everyone who owns a console is a 13 year old shrieking down a microphone. The sooner this stupid sterotype is out the window, the sooner gamers can live in harmony.
By saying "kiddos", I wasn't referring to their age. I refer to their inexperience and unknown of Indie titles and different types of genres. The problem (which is slowly being fixed) is that consoles mostly are known for their AAA titles and exclusives, which usually fall in the category of FPS, RPG (Besthesda babies mostly), and the occasional Indie sidescroller. The amount of titles on PC is massive, with the number of genres extraordinary. Frictional made this trailer because it will appeal more to the console "players" then it would to PC players, since PC players are used to the FPS Horror franchise by now, while the console people are not (as much).

I have no problem with the consoles themselves (besides them holding back tech). My problem is the little exposure console players are given. Frictional shouldn't of had to make a trailer like this so console players would be more interested in buying their game, but that's how the gamer world is right now. I had hope that the Steam Machines would close that gap, but that doesn't seem to be happening.

Fair enough. My apologies for misunderstanding. While I agree that the trailer was pretty rubbish at showcasing what the series has to offer (it only shows footage from TDD as far as I can tell) I don't see how a collection of screams is attempting to attract a console audience. Simply redoing a trailer like the following would have been far better for sure. Gripping and terrifying.

Because the other two games came afterwards when Let's Plays were already a widespread phenomenon. We wanted some early videos that captured more "genuine" reactions. We'll release a proper trailer closer to publish date.

Fair 'nuff, they just want to appeal to a wider audience. It's understandable, and if I were to promote my product I would've chosen a similar way too, probably.

RE: Amnesia: Collection announced for PS4

I don't understand why they had to go with the entire trailer being reactions only. It would have been better with those being at the very end, rather than how it ended up. However, they said in the link Romulator posted that they will be doing proper trailer later. Why not proper first and the not-so-serious later?

Physical release also mentioned. I'm not a huge fan of download-only titles, so I am hoping it will get the retail copy as well.

From this blog post

Quote:What about a physical release?
It would be awesome to do that, but there are a bunch of complications. We've already had a few publishers mail us to express interest in a boxed version, so we'll pursue those and see what happens.

For now, I'd rule it out as a possibility.
