Scalebound Will Be A “Large, Rounded Experience” With Customization and Loot- Kamiya

But then, why not focus on those parts in the game’s public showings?

Scalebound

Scalebound was sone of the most anticipated games for Xbox One when it was first revealed- after all, a brand new Platinum Games developed exclusive title for the console, helmed by legendary director Hideki Kamiya? What’s there not to hype?

But the game hasn’t really demoed well, and the poor showings at Gamescom and E3 have deflated a lot of the hype that there was for it. Does Kamiya not worry about the game not coming off well in these big game shows, that are his best shot at generating some hype?

“The video that we showed here at E3 and the video that we showed at Gamescom kind of have the same intent, and it’s to show combat with your dragon,” Kamiya said. “They’re combat at different scales, but it’s the same intent. What we’ve been doing for 10 months is making the world big. So, building all of the encounters, all of the loot, the customization, all of the things that are going to make it a large, rounded experience. And what we’re working out right now is figuring out the best way to present that to people so they understand how broad the experience is.”

On the one hand, I can understand wanting to show combat with your dragon- I mean, that’s the kind of thing that appeals to a western audience. But on the other… when that clearly hasn’t gone down well once, why would they bother doing it a second time? Maybe they should be showing off more of the game’s variety, to try and get people on board with the game as an RPG?

Scalebound will launch on the Xbox One and on Windows 10 PCs next year.

    Do you guys ever get tired of writing these type of articles? No wonder gaming journalism is laughed at nowadays.

    • Doggystyle

      LOL, it’s the Xbox One exclusives that are getting laughed at.

    • Skorge

      Lol it’s almost as funny as damage controlling Star Ocean V and the fact that Days Gone drew no crowd to it’s demo at E3, who can blame people for not wanting to watch another bland, soulless abortion where you back peddle for 5 minutes shooting zombies that go down in one bullet

      Soooo much salt

    • Doggystyle

      LOL. You’re not very good at this, are you? You better thank Sony again for forcing MS to start giving you guys free games in order to bribe you into buying more of their exclusives like Gears 4. If the Xbox One was in the lead, you wouldn’t be getting those free games. MS might even consider putting Netflix back behind a paywall.

    • Skorge

      Good at what? Being a complete moron who wakes up in the middle of the night because of nightmares of Big Bad Microsoft? You’re right, I’m horrible at having OCD and crying about a console all day and throwing internet memes like “Salty” around. I wish I could be an unproductive virgin with nothing to contribute to society like yourself….and your average Playstation fan D:

    • Doggystyle

      LOL. It sounds like you need to reach under the bed and get that old Sports Illustrated issue with Michael Sam on the cover, and rub one out. Good luck son. Get some sleep. Tomorrow is just another day away to wake and defend your sh**ty console.

    • Skorge

      Fake “lol” the first sign of panic, read anymore Microsoft articles and you may end up clutching your chest from your 4th heart attack

    • Skorge

      lol you post and then you come back minutes later to edit and add to it, you are so angry and not the comedic kind of angry but the “was touched when I was young” kind of angry.

      I’d tell you to get some sleep but lets be honest, you have nothing else to do tomorrow..or ever…and will most likely end up sleeping till 3 in the afternoon and then get up again and troll pro Xbox articles since they’re apparently more fun than actually playing the Playstation 4 😀

    • Doggystyle
    • Skorge

      2009 wants it’s meme back, but I forget memes are the Playstation fanboys method of coping when reality is too painful for them :/

    • Doggystyle

      Have you not blocked me yet? Wait, do you like this abuse? Seems like you’re raging quite a bit. Tell me what bothers you the most. I love all the positive feedback.

    • Skorge

      Hmm you believe that you’ll get some self fulfillment if I “blocked” you and that I should “block” you because you’re supposedly “abusing” me. You want me to block you because you want to move on to something else, maybe find some more Xbox articles to troll?

    • Doggystyle

      LOL. Yeah. Kinda. You’re acting like Betty White.

    • Skorge

      You’re free to go on your way anytime you want, the only thing keeping you here is yourself and the need to feel like you “won” here. Win what exactly? Even if I blocked you would that change the fact that you’re still an insecure and angry Playstation fan who has such low customer satisfaction that he needs to fill his daily quota of DC’ing 20 Xbox articles? I think you need to take a break or you’re going to run out of articles to vent on.

    • Doggystyle

      Thanks doc. Are you gonna be ok? You seemed very upset.

    • Skorge

      Thank Goodness for the block button, trolls are fun, angry vengeful trolls that think a console shot their dog aren’t, you’re not even the funny kind of stupid, you’re the “last kid picked in gym class” kind of angry and there’s no redeeming quality in someone like you, I guess that’s something you and the PS4 have in common :/

    • Skorge

      I’ve already played 3 of those games and most likely won’t be playing any of them even when I do get them, so what exactly am I thanking Sony for? If I wasn’t getting those games I wouldn’t be losing sleep over them like you do whenever a pro Microsoft/Xbox article comes out and you need to be there are 3 in the morning damage controlling it.

      Can you make a single intelligent post? I’ve been on maybe 6-7 different pro Xbox articles and always see you damage controlling and reeking of insecurity, just like your entire fanbase. When are one of you going to break the stereotype of Playstation fans being the most insecure and least intelligent fanbase out there? One of you need to step up, although it isn’t going to be you.

    • Doggystyle

      Are you upset? You sound more upset than I do. I could care less what you say about the PS4. I don’t need to defend it. I don’t even get offended by its critics. Why are you so upset though? Ask yourself that question. Why does the things that other people say online about your piece of plastic electronic junk hurt you so? The answer is right in front of you, but you don’t want to accept it. Poor thing.

    • Skorge

      You do defend it though, I’ve seen you on maybe 10+ Xbox articles damage controlling, in fact you’re damage controlling right now and telling me to “thank Sony” for free games that I’ll most likely never play, your a bigger Sony defender than anyone else I’ve seen here so far

      Why are you so upset though? Did you get bored of COD and Destiny already? Did Star Ocean upset you that much? Why does a plastic console hurt you so bad that you’ll go on 20+ articles to damage control?

      Microsoft makes you upset, the Xbox makes you angry and spiteful, enough to where you’ll refuse to do anything productive and opt to sit on Disqus all day, and when you wake up at 2 in the afternoon I guarantee you’ll be back on here, now I can see why you hate the Xbox, between the insomnia and clogged arteries it’s quite literally killing you.

    • Doggystyle

      LOL. Take a breathe before you wreck the ‘enter’ key. Hilarious reactions like this are fun. Now, please slow down, and tell me how you feel.

    • Skorge

      More self projection? Also more fake “Lol” ? How many keyboards did you break already? You know things are bad when you have to constantly type “lol” in caps to try to hide the fact that you’re genuinely mad right now.

      That’s the interesting that Playstation fans, they’re generally so stupid that you can tell how they’re feeling and what they’re going to do next.

    • Doggystyle
    • Skorge

      Expressing how you really feel right now, but that pic was uncessary, I could already tell you’re about to smash your keyboard.

      LOL ROTFLMMFAO WTFBBQPWNED “I’m typing acronyms in caps to show that I’m laughing even though anyone with a 6th grade education can tell that I’m genuinely pissed and panicking that someone exposed me hur herp derp”

      You’re too predictable, sloppy and the sad thing is that you’re genuinely trying right now.

    • Doggystyle

      You. Are. Cracking. Me. Up.

      Could you translate that into your best Frazier Crane?

    • Skorge

      “Continuing the emphasize how funny I am”
      smh so much anger, I think I may have caused you to finally snap

    • Doggystyle

      Snap??? Snap???

      Isn’t that something the Xbox One used to be able to do? Snap?

      LOL…I can’t make this sh** up! Keep feeding me! Keep feeding me!

    • Mr Xrat

      So after you got comprehensively destroyed and descended into a furious meltdown, you deleted your account only to come back days later, still mad. The Xbox fanbase, ladies and gentlemen. Absolutely vile. 🙂

    • Skorge

      Here let me help you with the next 20 post you’ll make

      “LOL ROFL ur so funniez here’s mah gif”

      There, I just saved you an hour, wouldn’t want you to hurt your brain by thinking too hard, now go do something produc…..Nvm…

    • Doggystyle
    • -youjustgotburned-

      “Are u upset? LOL ROFL ur so funniez here’s mah gif”

      There fix it for you.

      “There, I just saved you an hour, wouldn’t want you to hurt your brain by thinking too hard, now go do something produc…..Nvm…’

      and you nailed it with that ending. Doggystyle is just a pretentious tool, who thinks he is being funny but at the end of the day no one, well except the other low life trolls who are as irrelevant as he is, is laughing with him but at him.

      “Look at me laughing at a plastic box and at the people who enjoy playing on it because it brings me joy trolololol”
      That right there explains his very own existence…sad really

    • Skorge

      I don’t think making fun of Xbox brings him joy, I genuinely believe that Doggystyle is miserable right now and has to vent his frustrations out on every Xbox related article. Such a sad life smh

    • Doggystyle

      Actually I’m happier than Pharrell right now. But you boys are potential workplace shooters right about now. I’m gonna go turn the news on, and see if they mention you.

    • Doggystyle

      Such anger and resentment. That’s not healthy. You guys should see a therapist. Its just a game console. Don’t get so worked up about it.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Oh yes I am so angry grrrr/s

      Save your snarky remarks to someone who cares, you arent clever, let alone funny. Projecting your deficiencies on others doesnt help your cause it just makes you look like a child looking for attention.

      Now have a good day.

    • Doggystyle

      LOL. Huh? That was some real top level Dr. Phil bullsh** you just said.

  • Troy Marcel

    I still have high hopes for this, I’ll most likely get this and play it on the Scorpio.

    • Doggystyle

      It’s a vanilla Xbox game. Frame rate is locked, doesn’t matter what Xbox you play it on. Keep hope alive.

    • Troy Marcel

      Ahh no, it will look alot better on the Scorpio due to more horsepower like the Neo. Same game but better looking.

    • Doggystyle

      It will be the same vanilla game with a locked framerate across all versions of Xbox consoles, but upscaled to 4k resolution on Scorpio for 4k televisions.

      Suddenly, resolution matters now more than framerates? Wow. I never saw that newfound opinion coming. (Yes I did)

    • Jugo94

      You must work for Platinum or you’re just making stuff up again. Seeing your posts i’ll go with the latter.

    • Doggystyle

      You see? This is the problem with Microsoft’s messaging and PR. They aren’t making different versions of games for Scorpio. They are also not making exclusive games for Scorpio. They are making games scaled to a 4k resolution on Scorpio, at the same locked framerate of their choosing across all Xbox platforms, and then they are downgrading those games to lower resolutions on the Xbox One S, and the Xbox One.

      DO NOT BUY SCORPIO IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A 4K TELEVISION. THERE IS NOTHING TO GAIN.

      The truth is out, and it will now set yo ignant a** free.

    • Jugo94

      Neat. You do that you sad little troll.
