>Perhaps the oddest thing about this remake is the presence of in-game advertising. For a game that is staunchly anti-capitalism, as evidenced by the snarky critiques that appear on in-game billboards, it seems contradictory for those billboards to then scroll to reveal a poster for an upcoming PS4 game. More harmful is that those ads contain depictions of human characters, violating the otherwise consistently odd nature of the game's fauna. Though rarely seen, these ads still took me out of the experience in an awkward, fourth-wall-breaking fashion.

so much for all that bullshit they were spouting about caring about fans and hating publishers and their greed.

Lorne talked about this months ago. They're not ads in the sense they've been paid for; the team just wanted to take an "us indies are all in this together" stance and decided to promote other games for free.

Yes, you can debate if it's a good idea to break the "reality" of the game world, but it's not a case of Lorne selling out

why are there ads in this game at all?

the entire point of oddworld is the destruction of an impossibly beautiful world being destroyed by petty greed and industrialism. the whole world is plastered with adverts for the latest product, which are little more than sanitised propaganda for the utter desolation of the world.

actually putting corporate ads into an anti-capitalist game with no regard for artistic integrity or consistency is a fucking insult

Their justification for the Sony timed exclusive was because "Gilray explained the delay for the PC release is due to the knowledge that a simultaneous release alongside consoles would result in some people pirating the PC version and not buying either of them"

I think they caved to greed a while a go, and basically told fans "Fuck you, you thieves"
>>
>>255161973
That and probably because Sony paid them for the timed exclusivity.
>>
>>255162204
So they used the excuse of greed to hide a different kind of greed, which ultimately fucked over their fans? My point still stands.
>>
They claim to have done it as a gesture of good will. I don't think they got paid to do it. Regardless, I didn't buy the game because of it but I hope they sell enough to make Exodus.

Do I have to say this in every thread? Sony did not pay for exclusivity. The game is coming to PS4 first because the game was on stage at E3 2013. And there was NEVER going to be a simultaneous release anyway because the team is too small get all SKUs working at the same time.

"Post-Oddysee games" is what he posted.

Games is plural. You cannot say post oddysee games when there was only one singular oddysee games.

Can you ask yourself if you know how to read and what those words mean, because clearly you're having an issue when I specifically stated this was the issue already.
>>
>>255168464
I hope English isn't your first language because there's no excuse for that kind of egregious misunderstanding of a simple sentence.
>>
>>255168464

It's quite obvious he meant the Oddworld games after Oddysee.

Stop sperging out.
>>
>>255168464
Games is plural because there is more than one game that came after Oddysee in the Oddworld series.

"Post-Oddysee" is a compound adjective, hence the hyphen between "post" and "Oddysee."

>It's only the voice from the post-Oddysee games.

"It" is the subject.
"Games" is a noun.
"Post-Oddysee" is a compound adjective and describes "games."
"...Only the voice from the post-Oddysee games.," is the predicate.

I'm hoping it will be a PS+ title. If it gets to £10 I'll consider it.

I don't mind ads in games if they make sure the ads work in universe.

If there is a Sci-Fi game and Coke wants to advertise in the game they should work with the developers to design the Coke of the future for the setting so it looks like it would down the line.

Seeing game ads in Oddworld is dumb. They should have altered the ads to be in-world versions of those games starring Mudokons or whatever.
>>
>>255170275
I don't think he mentioned if he did. He did say the game is easier than oddysee was overall and he was playing it on hard mode in the video so take of that what you will.
>>
I actually never played any of the Odd world game. Is the first still good enough to play it now? I have it off GOG from a friend and wonder if it's worth it.
>>
>>255170547
I would gladly buy it if I could afford to throw around money. Thirty dollars is double the price of most indie games though and quality or not this game is basically an indie game even if I loved the first two games. I need to wait for the PS3 version any ways.
>>
>>255170932
Definitely.

I still play them to this day. I am yet to be convinced that the upgrade is worth it.
>>
>>255170932
The first game is much harder than exoddus due to no quicksaving and no all of ya speech. Those two things make oddysee at least twice as hard as exoddus.
>>
>>255171263
This right here.

Its hard to go back to oddysee after playing exodus so much.
>>
>>255171212
>I am yet to be convinced that the upgrade is worth it.

Looks like a worthy enough remake to me. It does seem much easier though but that is likely due to the added quicksave, the better controls and scrolling screen.
>>
>>255170604
>in-world versions of those games starring Mudokons or whatever.
I wouldn't mind this.

To someone who doesn't know this might seem a bit ridiculous but it truly does make the first that much harder. Had the first had those two things it would have been just as fun to play as exoddus. Even though to me both games are still really fun.
>>

I'm still on my first playthrough of Oddysee because of the awful saving system. I want to save these mudokons but it won't save my progress until I clear several screens that I keep fucking up due to precision jumping. I'm was really enjoying it before though.

That's a terrible metaphor for casualization of games, since exoddus plays better.

You need very precise timing on most of the game. I would use a controller since the game was likely meant to be played with one.

Plays fine with keyboard, there's no need to use mouse. Also, all movement is grid-based (jumping has length of 3 normal steps, running jump is 5 steps etc) so it doesn't really matter what are you going to use, but you're gonna be precise anyway.

Correct. Its worth saying that you probably won't get all 99 on your first try unless you explore obsessively because there are a few hidden areas.
>>
>>255177040
Hard they super well hidden. Like would I need a guide to actually find all 99 or is it possible to find them all myself?
>>
>>255177617
What did I type. Sorry. I meant to say "Are they super well hidden?"
>>
>>255177617
Well, early on in the game you run past a barrel but if you stop and drop down behind it it reveals a hidden area. Its that kind of thing. The level design is quite limited so there aren't many places to explore. You shouldn't need a guide if you're patient.
>>
>>255177617
It's right on the treshhold of needing a guide, but there's hints to pretty much every secret area, if you know what to look for

>complaining about games advertising other games

are you really that autistic enough to get annoyed by this?
were you also annoyed when you saw jak and daxter in the ratchet and clank universe and vice versa?

Not going to happen because Lorne is the hero fo the anti-publisher movement that is really strong here on /v/.

How much dosh have these indies got to give to Lorne? Or is it a favour for industry pals?

It's a favour to help promote other indie titles. Personally I'd prefer a system where buying Abe gives you a discount on the game they wanted advertising. It would bring it to my attention in a noninvasive way and give me more incentive to take the risk.

>>255180991
Not criticize an economic system which he is participating in and is benefiting from.

>>255181649
I don't think Sony, Microsoft or Steam would allow that.

Spelunky has references to super meat boy

Super meat boy has references to bit trip beat, VVVVV and others.

one thousand spikes (or knives or whatever man) has references to these too.

If you want to promote a game, it's way better to reference it and to put something related to the gameplay than to place a literal fucking ad in the stupid game.

I'm really hoping it's optional

I know, which is a shame because I think it would work.

This fucking guy dosent even know what that is. That was a facist system in Oddworld.

Dust had you unlock indie characters for a small bonus HP. Personally I'm not 100% against things like that if it's just helping smaller guys. But I feel it's the way they did it that is causing the problem. I feel they are doing something nice for each other but I feel they should see how it also effects their game if they do stuff like that.

>>255179664
>I find it hard to believe that this was done in the Unity engine; it looks way too good for that
Its what happens when a real dev works on it instead of indy shitters

>Granted, I prefer the moody art-style of the original
I know what you mean, although the only time it was really glaring to me was in the Stockyards (which is much worse) but its fine besides that
>>
>>255157321
It is immersion breaking. Ignoring the oddworld games are all day one pirates to start with.
>>
>>255182395
Fact remains that they try to be anti capitalism. They are just making themselves look stupid by doing this.

>don't kill yourself over missing a few mudokons

>Get through the first area, come up to the next Mudokan counter
>Mfw seeing how much it had dropped as all the Mudokans I failed to save were murdered
>>
>>255160804
I'll be honest, if I hadn't been told that's an actual ad for a real indie game I wouldn't have known and had thought it was just advertising for a fake product.
>>
>>255180905
>you probably would not have noticed they existed if some guy hadnt told you.
So much of the character of Oddworld comes from the posters and small background detail. These are completely different from the rest, they stand out like sore thumbs
I would have been cool if he did what someone suggested earlier and done little Oddworld pastiches of them with Oddworld inhabitants in the lead roles

Guy that is about to play it for the first time. Does it tell you how many mudokons are in an area? Like would I know that I have to save say 10 of them in one area before leaving to the next?
>>
>>255183426
Nope. The first time when you'll know if you missed any is when you move onto the next area.
Dont get too flustered about missing any during the first playthrough

>>255161656
The game's 30$ man.

Alright. Thanks for the help everyone.

Yeah, I was wondering what that was. It didn't kill the experience for me, but it did take me out of the game for a bit.

What game is it anyway?

I really love Oddworld, it's a great series. But 30 fucking dollars for this game is way too much. That's half as much as any game coming out soon that looks good. I'd pay 15 dollars for this game.

Instead of buying this though, I bought the remake of the MASTERPIECE game of Another World which was around 7 dollars PS+, and it's such a great remake.
Also, I'm waiting for when people who are really good remake Oddysee for LBP3, granted if they make levels fucking bonkers huge, or have cross-level saving.
>>
Ads in their game and they're still charging $30 for this fucking paint job

You fags will cry about anything

>>255188115
i dont give a fuck about the price, its the ingame adds that piss me off

>>255188791

It's the principle. Or are you going to be saying

>WAAAAH I CAN'T AFFORD 100 BUCKS

When it eventually gets that bad
>>
>>255188791
>>255188816
I can pay 30 bucks, it's just that I chose not to. However, I'm now contemplating getting it because I've seen a lot more about it, and the increase of 200 Mudokons is really tempting.

Other than that, it didn't really seem that different, and that was my reasoning.

Plus, the ads are really annoying to the atmosphere, but hopefully they might patch this shit with Mudokons as the characters in the very least.
>>
>>255189469
>Plus, the ads are really annoying to the atmosphere


yeah sure if you're some autistic fuck like >>255160804 said. You are pretty much the SJW of the gaming industry. Crying about literally anything.
>>
>>255160606
So all of the complaints are about advertisement......it's fucking oddworld, of course there is in game advertisement. In truth, I can't wait to replay oddworld from the beginning. This thread is pretty much usless. If you're not going to get the game then don't. For this thread to be approved for a complaint, play the game first....then complain after.
>>
>>255189942
The oddworld games had god tier atmosphere.

Yes this gets in the way of it.
>>
>>255190183

So amusing that Oddworld is the golden child of /v/ above any criticism.

Literally in game advertisement which is bad enough but it's in a staunchly anti-capitalism game.

There's no excusing that it's bullshit. Don't need to give them $30 to call them out on this.

Do you by every EA and Activision related game before criticizing it?

The annoying part isn't that they are there, it's that they are humans. Even then, while it is really annoying, it's not going to change my decision to buy the game. I was actually trying to separate that from my reasoning to buy the game, and was trying to link that to >>255188816, but I fucked it up.

You are right in the fact that it is crying about anything.

Please help me.

What I've learned from this topic is in-game advertising is totally cool and okay and if you criticize it you're just a baby whining about anything.

Bring on the Dew.

He's not right at all, don't let people convince you issues like this should be marginalised. Screaming muh autism because someone dared to care about something outside of pure gameplay mechanics is the childish and unreasonable thing to do. For a game like Oddworld to have 4th wall breaking ads in it is a big deal. Aesthetics and world building are important to some games and that's fine. If he or anyone else doesn't care about it that's their business but the Oddworld games sold themselves to people based on their unique world and story as well as their gameplay.
>>
>>255190183
>it's fucking oddworld, of course there is in game advertisement
There is satirical advertising in Oddworld dumbass, not advertising to up his friends

>>255181943

Nintendo of all people had something similar to what you described a couple months ago, granted, for a limited time, but still.

>Real world items advertised in a fantasy setting
This should never be a thing. Chupa Chups in Zool is just as retarded as BMW being in Mario Kart.

>real world items advertised in a game with a matching setting
Makes sense for games like Spiderman because the source materal takes place in New York.

>fantasy items advertised in a fantasy setting
Everything is to its own so this can build a better world.

>>255191250
You got to admit, he is kind of right in the fact that we are getting pissy about anything these days, I mean, it's not like we are being forced to look at it, you can easily play this game without looking at it or noticing it, and you can easily just not acknowledge it's there.

It does break the atmosphere, I'll give you that.

I'm going to side with no one and say while it's stupid and breaking, it's not shoved up your ass and you can get over it
>>
>>255192870
>I'm going to side with no one and say while it's stupid and breaking, it's not shoved up your ass and you can get over it
Fuck off, you arent progressive for being as middle ground-y as you can manage

Of course you can get over it, that doesnt change the fact its immersion breaking and we'll bitch about it if we want
>>
>>255192870

One of the biggest draws of Oddworld is the world and message.

In game advertising fucks with both of these and it's even worse because it was remade with this put in. It's needlessly damaging the product.

There's no reason to ignore flaws because other people are too insecure to deal with the fact that their favorite game isn't perfect. The only way we makes things better is by talking about it. We'd get nowhere if every time a negative was brought up someone came flailing their arms screaming about how unfair and nitpicky the criticism is.
>>
>>255192870
I've played New 'N' Tasty and you better believe when I saw a massive human face pop up on the screen I fucking noticed it. It's right there next to the number of Mudokons saved/killed, you'll definitely see it. It's the principle of the matter that annoys me more than anything else. The new devs just aren't respecting the effort the team put into crafting the world of the original.

If/when you play New 'N' Tasty you'll see how shitty the whole package is for yourself.
>>
>>255187830
Munch's Oddysee was 13 years ago.
>>
I like the game as a whole but fuck the advertising. The industrial levels always had a very grim dieselpunk theme, the ads look completely out of place. It doesn't help that half of them have humans on them.

Would it really have been so difficult to just give nods to other indie games my making versions of the advertisements with sligs and mudokons instead of humans?
>>
When the world and atmosphere are such big parts of Oddworld I completely understand why people would pass on this and go back to the original when the dev team is blatantly breaking the rules set out by the game and ruining immersion.

Oddworld Inhabitants are not an indie studio. Just Add Water is however.

I don't think it'd hurt as much if there was some kind of biting irony to it or just something to make it funny and fitting.

Because the way they did it just feels like they didn't care that they were damaging the source material and just aren't taking this seriously.

You can't just forget and/or disregard the lore of the game you're updating.
