Returnal: too difficult a game?
It was one of the most anticipated games of the last few months: Returnal, the PS5 exclusive, was released last Friday. While the game received positive feedback overall, it also reignited a broad debate: what place should difficulty have in video games? Like many rogue-lites, Returnal does not have any save functionality. Indeed, the game is based on a principle of returning to square one with each death. Yes but here it is, this is not to everyone’s taste. Returnal offers long games, sometimes incompatible with the lack of backups. Indeed, what about people who have to turn off their consoles or those suffering a power failure? Back to square one as well … But maybe that could change. Indeed, developers have become aware of the problem and may well come up with a solution like The Binding of Isaac and its unique intermediate backups. Case to follow.
Where is Activision going with its studios?
We learned this Friday: Toys for bob, Californian studio having notably delivered the appreciated Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, is relegated to the rank of support for the development of the very popular Battle Royale ofActivision, Call of Duty: Warzone. Toys for Bob is thus added to the long list of Activision studios working directly or indirectly on the Call of Duty license: Treyarch, Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer, Beenox, Raven Software … recent layoffs which took place within the Activision-Blizzard group, the publisher’s position raises questions. But where is Activision going with this new strategy? We talk about it in the JV newspaper at 12:30.
Guest: Targamas from Karmine Corp
It was the event of the evening yesterday: Karmine Corp won the European Masters. Since its creation, the team led by Kameto and Prime have had a series of successes. Five weeks after the LFL, French League of Legends Championship, it is Europe that the Karmine Corp has conquered. And the least we can say is that they had support, recording a brand new audience record for esports in France. Indeed, they were 300,000 last night to watch the final of the European Masters, thus opposing the Karmine Corp and the British team BT Excel. Result? 3-1 for the French after a fierce and tighter than expected fight. Raphael Targamas Crabbe, support player of Karmine Corp, comes back with us on this crazy victory in JV le journal.
