why can't game freak just do this?is it really that hard?
>>37361234That looks like dogshit for a PS4 game, though.
Why bother when the sames will sell the same anyway?
Ugh...what cool off bean....
>>37361234I prefer ni no kuni II graphic
>>37361250>nintendrones and soíboys brainwashed themselves into believing top looks better, somefuckinghow
>>37361258yeah NNK looked nice as wellbut to achieve this you need to actually make an effort and not just do the bare minimum knowing the bulk of your fanbase will even buy a PokéTurd™ as soon as you put it out
>>37361234They’re doing it for Town, tho.
>>37361265Don't underestimate the power of brand loyalty. If literally any other big RPG series had fucking grid maps in 2018 the devs would be crucified.
>>37361313Town looks like a PS2 game...
>>37361318you're absolutely right, Square Enix got criticized to hell and back for FFXIII and FFXVyou'd never see the Pokémon fanbase gritting slightly pissed for the biggest screw-up, they literally swallow everything thrown at them
>>37361234>is it really that hard?for gamefreak, yes
>>37361234Oh my God, imagine reaching a checkpoint village before the big city (containing a Gym) like this. Fuck, I'm hard.
>>37361234>Those house designsI knew it, Dragon Quest has a Nusantara (SEA) influence in it. That's a Minangkabau house design.
>>37361331You have an odd memory of PS2 games
>>37361318Honestly it's not even 'brand loyalty', it's more like a conditioned reflex. "Oh, it's Pokémon. Better buy it then."LGPE players are the real NPCs, as dead inside as the gen VII protagonists.
>>37361313That looks like shit
>>37361436Fuck off, just because we enjoy the game and we don’t nitpick stupid shit it doesn’t mean that we’re npcs. LGEP made a lot of improvements to the series.
>>37361313Town looks bad, the shading and textures alone horrible tbqh
>>37361237>Clearly decent looking graphics compared to Lets Go and 3DS games>LoL lOoKs LiKe ShItName a worse kind of poster
>>37361448That sounds exactly how an NPC would react
>>37361448It also introduced a whole lot of broken systems and pointlessly removed content. When you ride Charizard after the E4 you can't even dismount it without going to the menu and putting it back into its Pokéball, so the game actually gets worse when you unlock something new since you have to dismount every time you want to pass a gatehouse. For everything they 'streamlined' they introduced another source of tedium.
>>37361448>look how gay I am I love LGBT
>>37361448>nitpick how does someone nitpick when he's pointing at basically almost everything in the game
>>37361234because pokemon artsyle is sugimori garbage, everu human looks horrible a d never going to change
>>37361407Lel. Sorry, I'm from Malaysia and this got me excited.
>>37361479Shit compared to shit is still shit
>>37361237Imagine trying this hard to be a faggot
What about this?
>>37361234Which part? There's perhaps a zillion things here that are in no Pokemon games.
Because autists want a pokemon game every year and cry when they don't get revealed so soon. Dragon quest took 5 years to makw
>>37361479looks like unity stolen asset shit
>>37361479It's arguably worse. Have you seen any ps4 game ever made?
>>37361810I really dont like the way monsters and characters look in Town. The shading is awful and the designs themselves are a bit too messy. But the town itself is comfy.
And this is Digimon back in 2015.
>>37361234Yes, yes it is
>>37361810>if we use a lot of bloom they won’t notice the lazy textures and horrible take on cel shading
>>37362165I played Cyber Sleuth and I don't remember this. Did this scene make it into the actual game?
>>37361234character models aside the overworld looks like ass
>>37362190Nah, it looks great.And this isn't a billion dollar franchise.
I really wanted to get back into pokemon but XY, ORAS and Sun/Moon completely killed my will to keep playing.I find the online simulator more fun without the grind and boring ass story.
>>37362136Anon have you seen any ps4 game ever made
>>37361237Did you even look at gameplay?
>>37361810that looks like a low-budget gamecube game.
Nintendo is backwards in that, they care more about hardware integration than just making a fucking game.It’s the reason shit like Star Fox Zero flopped, all they had to do was make a straightforward game but they saw that there was a gamepad and had to bend the game around it.All they have to do is take Colosseum, implement a larger world and the wild pokemon mechanics from Let’s Go, and add character customization with varying ages and body types.But no, the games will be gimmicked the fuck up because of docked, handheld, and the joycons
>>37362461let's hope that they follow through with their 'not making anymore hardware' thing.
>>37361237>muh graphics>not the huge,vibrant world with monsters interacting with each other and natureWell you got me to respond baiting faggot.
>>37361265The top looks more coherent.The bottom one mixes the low-fidelity characters with a realistic environment, which is jarring.There is also something off with the shading on the bottom. You could argue that the realistic overworked is better than the "stylized" low-fidelity overworld of LGPE, but in the top one, everything is at least the same art style.
>>37361385Every new town/village in XI had like a new theme to it. They had like a chinese one where everyone spoke in haiku for example, and no other like that one. They also had a desert kingdom right after that was more Arabic styled for another example.
>>37361265after all he's either retarded or shitposting the way he writes.
>>37361234In two years? By the worst fucking studio ever with not enough employees and full of brainlets working on it? Is not hard: it's literally impossible.
>>37361338>you'd never see the Pokémon fanbase gritting slightly pissedThat's fucking bullshit, lmao. The fanbase went mad on ebmvery goddamn game, and you can't fucking deny it. They even critized as hell BW2 and HGSS masterpieces. Stop lying. This fanbase is cancer. Someone being mad at a Pokémon game means literally nothing.
>>37361331>>37361441>>37361457M A N B A B I E S
Can we all agree that this is the route Pokemon should be taking visually?
>>37362999No. It clashes.
>>37362314Yeah, DQ11 looks like dogshit by comparison. It looks like a PS3 game.
>>37362629So you agree that it looks like shit?
>>37363038I mean I played like 60-70 hours of the game and had no problems with graphics at all
>>37363048So you have no problems with a world that has about as much geometry as an N64 game in 2018?
>>37363048So you're a shill. Makes sense because the game objectively looks terrible.
>>37363029Do you even try Anon?
>>37363128I'm sorry for you if you consider that a good looking PS4 games.
>>37361234There's no good excuse for GF anymore. There's been 3 generations of open world Xenoblade games now. I'm not asking for open world, but at least try to make something that doesn't look so low effort.
Can they at least match Yokai Watch visually?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKKwB8l92so
>>37363073>>37363081Aw you're a cute little samefag
>>37361237that's because it's a compressed jpg you fucking moron
>>37361289tbf graphics are the only things NNK games hve their effort put into
>>37361338>they literally swallow everything thrown at themWhich is precisely why GF has stopped putting effort into their games. They know the NPCs will buy any random half-assed crap. If people started vocally complaining about this shit non-stop they would have incentive to give us a good Pokemon game again like B2W2 were.
>>37363562No wonder Yokai Watch is kicking Pokemon's ass in Japan.The fact that Yokai Watch was chosen over Pokemon for the 2020 Olympics should be a major warning sign for GF. Pokemon will die if they don't start making quality content again ASAP.
>>37363684But BW2 weren’t good games
>>37361234Shit systems, lazy people
>>37362163I like the monster designs, but I can't stand the human characters. And of course the bloom fucks everything up anyway. I also loathe the UI, but I'm not sure if I'm alone it that regard.
Shouldn't be a surprise if gen 8 looks good. Think about it, this is the title Nintendo will utilize to sell switches this holiday like Odyssey was in 2017 and Smash Ultimate last year. Ninty probably assisted Gamefreak with the development on gen 8 similar how monolith helped Aonuma's team with botw.
>>37363864Pokemon had it's chance to sell Switches. It failed.
>>37363698Yokai Watch is zombified. A rushed "mainline" spin-off riddled with bugs almost kills the franchise.
>>37363906I'm talking about a new gen not this experimental title. Why do you think smash ultimate came out 3 weeks after let's go? Because Nintendo knew pokemon let's go would spark controversy among fans and wouldn't be enough to sell switches.
>>37363930What kind of warped thinking is that? What WAS the reason for this travesty, then, because the only function it's serving is to first screw us and then screw over the people they brought in with LGPE. They are appealing to NO ONE.
>>37361237And LGPE doesn't look like dogshit for a Switch game?
does Pokemon even need great graphics? i feel like it would not fit in with the pokemon designs
>>37362917>The fanbase went mad on ebmvery goddamn gamebut not the casuals. even casuals constantly shit on sōmething like ffxv while praising pokemon even though xv are objectively better than every pokemon game to come out since the 3ds era
>>37361237Imagine missing the point this fucking hard. OP wasn't talking about graphics dipshit, he was talking about having a huge open world with a a third person behind the back camera.
>>37361234What? Make trash? Keep up, they just did though at least it didn't look like trash unlike this.
>>37361322>imagine Pokémon as a cartoon in front of a shitty 3D CGI screenWhy would I do that?
>>37364149its doesnt add much to pokemon unless they want to make it a immersive experience
>>37361436Actually, nothing screams NPC more than "Why no real graficx mommy?".
>>37362653Diverse biome and society, and I mean it sincerely. Not 'diverse' that's been thrown around lately.
>>37361234GF doesn't like outsourcing to better studios
>>37361234Let´s Go was their first HD game, so stop stacking your expectations this high.
>>37363698Yo kai watch is deader than dead in Japan....
>>37362653>A chinese one where everyone spoke haikuAnon...........
>>37366273I don't really care how accurate that was. You get the picture.
>>37361234BERY HARDO GAEMMU PURROGRAMMU YES PURIISUU UNDERSTANDO
>>37362461Nintendo should die as a hardware company, like Sega. Then they can just make good games based on their franchises for Playstation and Xbox, without any hardware memes, which will be bestsellers.
>>37362461Compared to Wii and Wii U I've found Switch games in general to be fairly gimmick free despite the hardware itself being heavily gimmicky.
>>37362184Its a free DLC.
>>37366214My expectations were extremely low after SM, the problem with LGPE is that they failed to deliver even on the bare minimum.
>>37362999Yes, something along those lines would be perfect.
>>37363163Honestly that anon has issues whenever you criticism him or don't parrot him like a sycophant
>>37361234Why can't they just let a competent dev do the ambitious big budget 3-4 year mainline-like games while GF fucks off and keep doing their yearly trash that everyone eats up.
>>37361448Even if you somehow enjoyed as much as the new additions that LGPE made as possible, the negatives would still outweigh the positives. No one actually likes this game more than they dislike it.
>>37362461>But no, the games will be gimmicked the fuck up because of docked, handheld, and the joyconsNone of the current Nintendo made switch games use any sort of gimmicks like that outside of ARMS and 1, 2, Switch (which is literally the only reason those games exist to begin with) except for a couple of minor and optional motion controls in Zelda and Mario. This really isn't something to worry about.
>>37362195>And this isn't a billion dollar franchise.Nigger it's fucking Dragon Quest!
>>37362165Pokemon needs to take a shitton of cues from the Cyber Sleuth games
>>37361234What will you do when the switch version is released OP? Will you be making the same threads with that version, or will you just stick to the PS4/PC one?
>>37370933Sure would be nice if Square knew that.
>>37370942Remove Nokia and generally this. Cyber Sleuth blew Gen 7 out of the water and it didn't even change much about the actual battle system. might be my tastes changing, but a lot of elements were justhandled betterin Sleuth
>>37362999Nah. I'd like higher graphical fidelity, but BotW was going for a different look. I want graphics that look straight out of Sugimori's more elaborate sketches, it still needs to be fairly colorful and poppy.
>>37361810>those fucking "trees"God gen 8 is going to be garbage
>>37368895Depends on how high your expectation was for this game. Didn´d expect anything and wasn´t let down.
