              it's working at the same workbench, whenever you do things at your base, your pals will come by if what you're doing is in their skill set. Its animation is just going over the player. You can get funny shots, like jumping in the hot tubs when a Pal is relaxing.

                Honestly if this keeps going, this could replace the Chao Garden for me if they add more to the breeding and physical traits. There's rumors of adding more variety in fusions, and if they double down on the traits Pals have now (some weird ones like Pyromanic, Gluttonous) they could make ones that warm up to the player over time or based on their traits.
                We'll have to see, right now this is just my replacement for Terraria since it's easy to pirate.

        I don't understand how anyone that actually works in the industry thinks this.
        Most of palworld systems are cookie cutter UE5 stuff, the only really impressive thing is the pals themselves with their animation and how it all blends together with the crafting.
        That's what really must've taken time and that's what took them 4 years, it all falls in line with people learning shit on the go and the rest is just unreal engine facilitating the rest and having actually passionate people.

        Anyone that has spent any amount of time actually developing and working with unreal should know this, it's baffling to me that a developer would actually act like this is a completely impossible task but that should tell you how utterly fricked up and bloated modern western companies are.

          If you knew literally anything about the game you would know it was originally in unity, part of the games development was taking a risk and having one dude port the whole thing into unreal (everyone else on the team had never used it). So they used cookie cutter UI? So fricking what. The animations and models are the best part of the game and they are all clearly hand made for this specifically. If you were whining about the game being full of generic asset store monsters I might agree.

        this post encapsulates a good amount of the people assmad at this game (outside of the tendie white knights)

        It's a bunch of failed artists super mad that a group of talented nobody's with little to no qualifications put in the effort to make a fun game that appealed to the masses. In the back of their mind they are thinking "pffftttt I could've totally made this game, they don't deserve the recognition because it should've been me!! I could've made it better and more ~~*(original*~~)!!", but their lifes "work" will never make anything as close as this game made in a day, so they're arrogant pride kicks in and they will go on long rants about completely subjective shit like what they seem is copyright in their mind (not even close to the legal truth) and how they MUST'VE "cheated" by using shit like AI (even though almost every game company is using AI in some way or another now)

        Bg3 kicked up a bunch of similar feelings, but because the media kept portraing it as woke because of the lgbt stuff most just grit their teeth and only vagueposted about it online

          Not 100% sure but I think it still has Steamworks so you'll need a generic Steam emu, but no DRM from Bethesda, no. So it should be pretty easy to share.
          Say what you will about Bethesda's games but they've been pretty good about not falling for the DRM meme. Redfall's the only game that had it, and that wasn't developed by them.

            It's only on Xbox because they needed gamepass money. They were going to go bankrupt too early to release the game, gamepass bucks let them develop it for almost an entire extra year. If this launch failed, they'd be bankrupt any day now. Craftopias profits were all invested, then massive loans leaving them in ever growing amounts of debt

          That boss was actually challenging.
          Not challenging as in hard, challenging in that you have to actually dodge attacks and have a solid set of pals with you.
          Even if you suck balls and have to be overlevelled, you still have to understand enough game mechanics and play long enough to get to level 15-20.
          The fact that millions of people actually beat that boss is pretty impressive.

    Palworld's release day was a historic day in gaming history since it showed that despite what Nintendo wanted its competitors to think, Pokemon was not invincible after all. Nothing is so big that it cannot fail, and that applies to Pokemon.

          Are you moronic? Palworld is proving that the AAA industry's obsession with graphics and pushing games to the limit is a mistake. While it's true the Switch would likely struggle to run it optimally, the same is true for consoles, there's no need for new hardware they already advanced enough, devs should just use what they have and focus on making good, fun games.

                >Pocket Monster Reissue is a mobile game where you collect not-Pokémon and battle them in a turn-based system that features artwork with “similarities” to popular characters from the Pokémon franchise, like Ash Ketchum. Gameplay videos on Chinese video sites show that most of the trainable monsters are original designs, but one video featured an unedited Clefable and Granbull. I also caught a glimpse of a character who appeared to be N from Pokémon Black and White. Kotaku has reached out to Nintendo for a comment, but did not receive a response by the time of publication.

                They called the game "Pocket Monster" and used unedited sprites and you're surprised they sued over this? Do you enjoy being a disingenuous butthole or are you just stupid on accident?

              There is no limitation of DMCA complaint timing other than copyright duration of the IP in question. Nintendo has been doing this for long time now.

              There are no grounds for a dmca request, none of what is in this game is the intellectual property of Nintendo or TPC, and they know it. Filing a false DMCA notice is also punishable by law.

      Because it is one of THE biggest franchises in the world. Taking Pokemon down means not only that a shitty franchise dies but also that other Nintendo franchises can be taken down. The precedent will have been set. I can see someone making a Fire Emblem ripoff since Intelligent Systems is one of the least liked developers, so there'll be a lot of demand for a competently done FE.

          That's literally how all art works, it's the foundation of what art is. Art inspires other art that continues or hopefully expands on the ideas and themes previously expressed. This is the case in fricking every creative field. Movies reference shots of older movies all the time. That's not a valid criticism in any way whatsoever, a valid criticism would be the that the references and similarities dont result in a good product. i.e, they made something bad. Palworld clearly hasn't made something bad because it's a videogame and that market decides this and everyone is playing it

      No one actually thinks that, regardless it is the biggest franchose in the world.
      But Nintendo has been major c**ts and shitting on their fanbase for years now, dogpiling awful moves and bullshit practices that would get other companies crucified.
      Then GF themselves are more incompetent than a team of game dev students on their first semester despite having infinite money and they basically keep shitting on everyone's plate, yet Pokemon is like a drug and people have been looking for a new fix for a long time now.

      It all lined up to create the perfect storm.

    I bought the game just because it has already provided me with so much entertainment value from all the seething. Gamefreak has been shamelessly fleecing their customers for so long it is baffling to me how people go out of their way to defend them.

      if they were smart they would have made an Xbox 360 style UI with thr ability to make local accounts. Instead the UI is the same clusterfrick that was on the Xbone. The xbox is a piece of shit and I think most xbox gamers moved to PC.

    It's so satisfying to see Nintendo and Gamefreaks hubris dashed to the waves. They thought they could ignore supply and demand, chaining their products to mandatory hardware and refusing to listen to even the most basic fan complaints. This is only the beginning, you're gonna start seeing tons of Nintendo ripoffs appearing. They have no one to blame but themselves.

          I would more broadly say there's a lot of disenfranchised pokemon fans that want more out of the gameplay GF delivers to them. I don't think many people truly like Pokemon's gameplay at its core, and only really stick around for the world and its designs.
          Despite the pissing and shitting from Nintendies, Palworld can never defeat Pokemon because people have fond attachments to it, but Palworld will absolutely provide a side alternative for people interested in the monster collection genre with open world mechanics that are more interesting to them. Even if Palworld were to fail tomorrow, its current success only proves that there's plenty of people that are "adjacent fans" of Pokemon who are willing to try out new gameplay loops.

          This should be good for everyone, really. Even for the Pokebros if GF takes some notes. People just want to do cool things and play with their Pokemons. The series could go in basically any direction and people would be happy.

      I would put Elden Ring together with the rest, it was hyped to be the next best souls game. It was made to sell a bunch from the start. The only difference was the shit performance which was quickly forgotten, like with Skyrim and now with Palworld.
      Pro: this means you can still make it in the current video game landscape as an "outsider"
      Con: These games are exceptions. No similar game sold that well before or will afterwards for a long time. Which means these were more about luck and being at the right place at the right time to blow up. There is no guarantee even if you do everything right that you will make it.

      On a personal note I always found it weird that people use BG3 as a justification to shit on Bethesda. What they did was good before but they feel out of grace with the players. This doesn't change the fact Skyrim and Fallout games were clunky and shitty experiences but people ate them up because those were the BG and Palwords of their time.

        People don’t care about the performance so long as the game is fun to play. This is what most of Ganker espouses, so long as it’s fun to play the graphics, story and performance are secondary. That’s why bg3 gets forgiven for its euro jank, why dragons dogma gets forgiven for its brown and bloom 2000s ugliness, and why palworld is doing gangbusters.

    I'll be real with you though, I genuinely have no idea why people dislike Starfield. I've vaguely received the impression that it is this massively hated game but I'm hesitant to actually dig into finding out what people dislike about it because I personally have had a good time with what I've played of it. I don't know if it's one of those situations where they lied about the features or what but I've got in the habit of not looking up prerelease trailers or information, just pirating games and going in blind if they vaguely interest me. So I don't have any expectations for the game to meet, for me I start from zero and then discover "Oh cool, so this game has that feature. Interesting." If something is missing I don't notice because I wasn't expecting it to begin with. I'm kind of used to most games following the same general framework so I never really get blindsided by a game not functioning as expected.

    The dev did an interview recently saying he added "body type" to the English version because he saw all western games doing that and assumed that's what western gamers want. He is right you know.

        That actually turned out to be a fake interview, people are making up a lot of fake stuff trying to discredit this game.

        If they didn't like ugly women then why do they keep making them in their games?

      Although I will say it's hilarious looking into this and seeing that just a couple days ago you had places like NicheGamer and KotakuInAction calling Palworld a "woke" game and shitting on it and fast forward to today it's sold 7 million copies and they've done a 180 and suddenly it's the based game that's destroying all the wokies. It just amuses me how easily controlled people are.

      Good game though and that's what matters.

    I don't really have any problem with this game, and even though I don't plan on every playing it I am kind of glad it exists just because Gamefreak is trash.

    What I don't understand though is where the sales numbers are coming from. Baldur's Gate 3, Elden Ring, TOTK, many of the "big hits" on this level, I couldn't go a day or two without hearing people talk about it in real life or in my online circles. It really felt like everyone was playing those.

    But I have never seen anyone outside of Ganker actually talk about this game or its gameplay or anything about it except for one friend who played it on gamepass and said it sucked and was janky. Even on Ganker itself all people talk about is how well it's selling. I don't get it, who is buying it?

                I just checked /vp/ and there's half a dozen Palworld threads right now, mainly "HAHAHAHA IN YOUR FACE TENDIES PALWORLD WON" style of posts.
                So I don't think I will be using /vp/, that place is a shithole.

    A lot about this game seems fun but I wish it didn't focus around guns. I like guns, I like shooters, but in this case it just comes off as stupid and edgy, especially with the slave labor shit factored in. Maybe it's because the super realistic guns completely clash with everything else in the game, maybe it's just because I would rather have my monster collecting game be about fighting with monsters and not giving them AK-47s. Just rubs me the wrong way.

      Do you also consider Fortnite edgy? Palworld doesn't have any blood at all, the guns may as well be toys. It's like Fortnite in that regard.

        enslaving humans and butchering them for meat can at least be a 5 on the edgy scale.

        Edgy might be the wrong word, but between the realistic guns, being able to butcher pals and even humans, and the slave labor, it comes off as tryhard and attention whoring, like it's just desperate to attract controversy.

          You don't have to butcher anyone and there is no slave labor. All the pals love working, they mine away and hammer with a smile on their face (exception: depresso).

            All promotional material regarding the production lines has them looking sad and crying. It may not be like that in the actual game, but it is absolutely something they are using for shock value in marketing.
