TheLastGuardian

When I think of games that got stuck in development limbo the abysmal Duke Nukem is the first that comes to mind, followed by the less than stellar Aliens: Colonial Marines. Others that never lived up to the heights of expectation were Max Payne and Alone in the Dark so what chance does The Last Guardian actually have?

We first heard about The Last Guardian in 2008 and then at E3 2009 we were blown away by this trailer that showcased the power of the PS3.

But it’s now 2013 and The Last Guardian is still nowhere to be seen. The latest rumours are that it will now become a PlayStation 4 launch title but even if that is true does it have any chance of living up to those early expectations.

The worst part is that if you watch that trailer you will struggle to remember why you were so excited 3 1/2 years ago as the graphics aren’t anything impressive anymore and the trailer is nothing more than a rendered story.

The problem is that it has cost so much to develop so far it has to be released to recoup some of the costs and as such I am predicting yet another dismal failure.

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer

    Who cares about The Last Guardian? Where is my Half-Life 3 (Episode 3?) or System Shock 3!?!

    • CaptainNemo42

      You clearly never played a Fumito Ueda game, haven’t you?

      • Banana Jim

        Yeah, a Fumito Ueda game is an initiation. I think Ico changed me.

        • CaptainNemo42

          Sadly, not everybody will appreciate it for what it is because it’s not a “shoot-the-n00b-dead-wit-mah-rawkit-lawnchair-lol” type of game.

            yeah everyone just wants fancy smancy action and shooting. sad, they will never know the emotion of stories such as Nier or SoC

    • OVG

      They will be launch titles for the STEAM box or ill eat my toes.

      • Deon Steyn

        Ewwww. Remember to clip your nails first.

        • OVG

          Real NORDS eat GIANT toes with Talossuace. Long nails for extra crisp and some toe jam for pudding.

          Halflife trilogy pack to shift units. You dont even need a marketing team to strategize that. Chuck in PORTAL 3 while they are at it. WHALAAAA instant install base.

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            I’d pay AAA price for that

          • Deon Steyn

            For Giant Toes with talossuace?

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            I’d pay AAAAA price for that

          • Deon Steyn

            You’re gonna make me barf up my chicken polony sandwich

          • OVG

            Only milk drinkers eat chicken :p

          • Deon Steyn

            Do what now?

          • OVG

            Drink mead and stew Dragon scales. Then you will get hair on your chest and be the envy of all bar wenches across Skyrim.

    • Admiral Chief Erwin

      Well, I would not say who cares about it, because it looks cool.

      What I will say is that I am also wondering where HL3 and SS3 is

      • FoxOneZA

        Try 203 on your DSTV decoder for SS3 :P

        • Admiral Chief Erwin

          lol, bloody troll

  • Banana Jim

    I reckon it’s a PS4 launch title now.

    • OVG

      PS5 man

  • Deon Steyn

    Maybe the dog they used for rendering died?

    • OVG

      All of those arrows stuck in its knee, it finally bleed out… :(

      • Deon Steyn

        Never looked healthy to begin with. I used to be a dog in a game but the I took an arrow…..

        • OVG

          :(

    • Admiral Chief Erwin

      Not funny man. What if it was your dog?

      • OVG

        Ill have to dig a fcuking huge grave for old Frodo. :(

        • Deon Steyn

          More like blow a hole with tnt.

          • OVG

            Or just let the old griffins corpse just lay there and rot while I use the TNT to blow up the nearest FNB ATM :P

  • Tarisma

    I kind of hope it never appears, this is a game that has been stuck in development hell for too long. I would rather it not come out and it be a disappointing waste of time and money.

  • http://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX umar bastra

    It’s going to appear and it’s going to be the best game ever created

    • OVG

      But sell the worst. Thats how things roll in gaming.

      • http://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX umar bastra

        Indeed … and as such we will only see ‘safe’ games and sequels and by safe I mean COD clones. People fear that which they cannot understand

      • Admiral Chief Erwin

        Role you say? :P

      • Admiral Chief Erwin

        Role you say? :P

        • OVG

          I thought it did not role off the tongue correctly. :p

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            I laf it wen yoo tolk forrin

          • OVG

            Too many videogames man. My hand eye co-ordination is off the chain but my spelling is almost as bad as the Eastern Cape :p

  • OVG

    Blahh

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    Sad puppy is sad

  • FoxOneZA

    The PS3 was lucky to get GT5 so this would be far fetched.

    • OVG

      GT6 and Final Fantasy Versus on the PS5 or Ill eat my thumbs.

      • FoxOneZA

        You still have your limbs :P

        • OVG

          I will save those for the next TRUE Aliens game :p I will need a hand tho…

  • FoxOneZA

    It’s fitting the last PS gets The Last Guardian #trolloolololololol lolololol
