      He's the one who campaigned to shut down Japan Studio with Jim Ryan. This is probably why there's two CEOs announced, Hulst was obvious handpicked by Jim and Nishino is there to appease the Japanese side of the business to make it appear like they haven't lost control of the company to fricking pump and dump israeli grifters.

      Hermen Hulst is the Aloy-Face guy. He made the decision to make Horizon the most soulless, pozzed up sellout garbage and has been cucking over for that as Head of Studios at PlayStation for the last 5 years.

    Will we get some good ol' Japan vs Western leadership like Sega or something?

    I thought I heard something about Hulst being responsible for the push to deprioritize Japan and close Japan Studio, so interesting to see him "rivalling" with a Jap.

    I assume Hulst would have an autism fit if the Jap guy tried to get rid of the censorship policy since it seems he is leading third party relations.

    2 CEOs is a pants on head moronic idea. Both of their potential success relies on fricking over the other. Herman will be wanting to push software and expanding beyond console and gaming which directly fricks over Nishino who wants to push hardware. This is how you create a rift in the leadership. I can tell you in advance that this structure won't last long.

The characters, story, and gameplay are so mind numbingly boring and uninteresting that I just can't play it. Like I said it's a shame because the idea of Humanity being sent back to the stone age and being forced to fight robot dinos to survive sounds really cool but the execution is so shit.

              Singleplayer Monster Hunter. But faster and more responsive(also almost exclusively ranged). I couldn't get into MonHun because it's slow and clunky. Horizon hit the spot for me.

        This. For Ganker, Gamergate hit this place harder than the 2016 election that came a whole year after it. It was about fighting corruption in the industry and the shills came by the thousands and turned it into a feminist battle and all the homosexuals and trannies and "BIPOC" enablers latched onto it. It was a direct attack on normal, healthy culture and they actually won when we look at the industry and the world today.

          Wasteland 3 was a kickstarter game. The developers were purchased by Microsoft during development.

      they've been doing it since game 1. any other games where i can watch clips of such freakish things?
      i can't believe this exists and someone okayed it as refined media and i find that incredible and amazing.
      stop getting angry at these games and take it for the freakshows they are. laugh and make fun of them. never buy

      This is actually my first time seeing cutscenes and WHAT THE FRICK? HOW IS IT THIS BAD?

      That's really the final boss?
      It was slow motion for like 50% of it and Aloy only had to dodge like 2 attacks.
      I thought people at least praised the combat in Horizon.

          yeah it's still mostly in slow motion and she doesn't have to dodge anything
          a single arrow does like 1/10th his HP and she even has time to stop mid combat to craft

          I post Aloy because avatargayging is an easy way to identify posters. Plus I got many funny looking faces out of cutscenes so better put them to use.

      The snappy denial posts about Japan Studio are an incredibly obvious tell.

        I don't post about Japan Studios because as one other anon pointed about it's a rumor spread by David Jaffe and no one else, he hasn't been in Santa Monica for years. No one knows who ordered the shutdown. And I haven't played anything made by them except SotC and Bloodborne so I'm indifferent. Ueda left Sony years ago and they were a support studio for Bloodborne.

        In any case, weren't they aiming for Old Kratos in Egypt in his path to become one of Three Wise Men and meet Jesus as a way to finally finish the Franchise? So you have like two more games right there
