The Last Guardian

While the newest trailer for The Last Guardian has blown people away, this isn’t the first time the game has gotten people plenty excited. When the game was first revealed at the 2009 E3 it had the gaming world fired up. Now the developers behind the game are admitting that they souped up the graphics and that there were real problems getting the title to run right.

Speaking to Kotaku at E3, Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida said, “there were lots of technical issues. The video we showed, the trailer on PS3, was specced up. The game was running at a much lower frame rate… it was clear that the team had to make a compromise.”

The team cut back on the size and scope, as well as the cast of The Last Guardian but they just couldn’t make it work on the PS3. Now that the PS4 is here it looks like Yoshida and his team have figured out how to make it work.

    Someone please help me understand. Why is it that The Last Guardian is so desired/wanted/hyped?

    As a non-Sony person I look at the game and see the following…
    1. It appears to be a puzzle platformer type game. These types of games are generally short, have little to no replayability,and tend to focus on a younger audience.
    2. Its a current and past gen game. Many have been saying that developers need to move on and embrace the current gen and leave the past gen consoles so that they can develop with current hardware in mind a.k.a. taking advantage of the hardware.

    To me, Sony people should be much more excited about that Horizon game that was shown at E3. So if someone can help me understand I would appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

      It looks like you saw the video on mute because they explained it.
      Hint: your avatar is a great example of the game.

      I watched with the sound on. I need more help. What do you mean by your hint?

    • Gamist

      Your avatar is a picture of your dog, correct? Your dog is your friend and also your guardian as you are to him/her. Just imagine you going on adventure with your dog but at the size of that guardian.

      I wasn’t a fan nor that excited about this game, but after the demo, I got why people want this game. I felt the connection between the boy and that guardian.

      So its essentially the same as Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons? Trying to establish an emotional connection? That’s great and all but I still can’t understand why all the hype.

    • Gamist

      It is kinda like Brothers, but I don’t think you can control the Guardian, only command it, but it won’t easy early in the game. The hype is from the fans that wanted this game back in 2009(?) when it was supposed to be for the PS3.

      You would have to have played Ico or Shadow of the colossus to really understand. The same developers have been working on this and their vision,storytelling is second too non. For me no other games can captivate like theirs.
