Feck Demon Souls

Resistance yes

Killzone yes

Chrono Cross great

Lair great

Legend of Dragoon hell fkn yeah!!
Lair what a game where some people had trouble with the controls, but a remake would look insane, the last dragon game didn't do so well "Crimson Dragon", but Lair I think could be improved massively with modern controls, a better camera system and some tweaks...….I'd also like to play a remake of Haze with modern visuals...…..though the latter is Ubisoft...

We know it's a Sony game, but people keep posting "I hope it is Metal Gear/Silent Hill/Castlevania", etc....

Just to add to that, they said this is going to be a reinvisioning. I fail to see how Demon Souls would fit that, it’s a game made in the HD era, what could possibly be done to reinvision that? To me if you’re gonna reinvision something that implies a huge overhaul.

Demon's Souls mechanics werent the greatest, especially by today's standards. The game excelled in atmosphere and novel story telling via item descriptions. A mechanical overhaul with today's tech will be awesome. Bring it on!

I think all of this vague hyping and buildup will come back and bite them in the butt.
At this point so many people have their own theories that whatever they announce will probably disappoint like half of their audience


Lair what a game where some people had trouble with the controls, but a remake would look insane, the last dragon game didn't do so well "Crimson Dragon", but Lair I think could be improved massively with modern controls, a better camera system and some tweaks...….I'd also like to play a remake of Haze with modern visuals...…..though the latter is Ubisoft...

Lair could definitely be amazing.
The story was great, the world was interesting, the music was one of the best from last gen.....if they could vastly improve and expand the gameplay it could be a fantastic franchise.

Though I doubt anyone wants to get involved with it. "Hey we are remaking that game everyone loves" is stronger argument than "we are remaking that game everyone hated!!"

Still doesn’t fit the bill of a “reinvisioning”. This seems to be something bigger, something more like FF7R or RE2. At least they seem to be implying that.

I just really hope it’s not Demon Souls lol.

If not Demon's Souls, then Destruction Derby would be the perfect game to showcase the CPU power of next-gen with the car destruction and the raytracing/GPU power. With online matches it would be crazy fun, but I think making a showcase game is not Bluepoint area.
Alundra could work as a remake.

Yeah, no doubt.....but the way I look at it is that many people have already loved and played the most popular games, but the ones which didn't do as well but we all saw the potential in them, could be remade with all the enhancements that could spring them into great franchises.......Lair had great graphics, music, world and a story......Some of the camera and gameplay elements need to be finetuned and it could easily be one of the best franchises we can experience.......I particularly root for such games since there are so few games like it.....



Personally, I'd also love for Sony to remake Drakan, if you get my drift......These type of unique games is what I really like to round up the library....

It's what they want to do and it's something that they are good at, and there is always demand for. If they wanted to make their own games, I'm sure Sony (or some other publisher) would give them full support and funding.
I'm not arguing against it, I just think the possibility for BluePoint Games to create a totally new IP should still be there if the plan right now is to create remasters, go all in on it.

Based on this quote from the OP, I don't think they have intentions of doing anything else:
“Fortunately the Bluepoint Engine and toolset has been in development for many years. We have significantly invested in ways that allow our process of remastering or remaking games to be powerful and efficient. It is flexible and able to take advantage of any hardware.”
It makes financial sense, it's safe, no criticism on story/plot/lore or any other faults of the original game, they get credit from fixing what was wrong, no need to show projects to several publishers and hearing what they want changed on their vision. They are the ones that decide which project they want to do from the offers and this way they have stable income and are still independent. It's the dream of hundreds of small studios.

Away with the fairies
Syndicate wars?

I'm guessing this game won't be a PSX game, otherwise I would have expected an announcement to coincide with the 25th anniversary.

That leaves PS2 and PS3.

Most Ps3 games were remastered for the PS4 so that leaves PS2.

What major, now forgotten, Sony exclusive game, launched on the PS2, which possibly suffered from being too ahead of its' time, like long loading times for example?

Is it kings field? It's Kingsfield isn't it?

There are so many classic titles that could use a nice remaster. My best guess for an amazing PS5(launch title?):

GOD OF WAR

PlayStation 2 PlayStation 2

Remakes of Lair and Haze would be amazing. But will never happen.

It's SotN, boys.

I didn’t say never, I said rarely.

Don’t twist words.
Yep and it's better to expect the least/worst so you aren't disappointed and over something you have no control over. Then if x thing does happen you are pleasantly surprised. It's a good way to think about a lot of things actually.

Bluepoint, please remake Killzone 1 with jumping and the improved gameplay of KZ2, then remake KZ2 and KZ3 using Decima...…Go on to remake Killzone Liberation and Killzone Mercenary (handheld games)... and lastly, remaster Killzone Shadowfall at 4k 60fps with RT and pack those bad boys up in a $60 package......

That's a lot of mediocrity in one package.

It's a good thing gaming tastes are subjective...…..KZ2 was the best fps we had last gen, just a smidgen over Resistance 3 for me....Mercenary and KZ3 are great games too and KZ1 if they touch up the gameplay it could be a very good release playing multiple characters...….

I still think their greatest achievement was Titanfall on the 360... that port was miraculous. it ran almost at the same resolution as the One version, almost at the same framerate and didn't look too bad doing it.

the "improved gameplay" of Killzone 2 :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: that's a good one. I mean Killzone 1 was dogshit, and the gameplay of Killzone 2 would be an improvement, but I still wouldn't wish the gameplay of Killzone 2 on my worst enemy

Remake the original kill zone with visuals better than that CGI we saw in 2005, and running in 2160p. #woah

I'd also like a dragon-based game like Lair.

Its going to be a remake of Castlevania Symphony of the Night!

You heard it here first.

Actually, you are far from the first to make that guess.

I seriously doubt it is a Konami game and being made exclusive for PlayStation.

I see lot of people want this, as much as I like Bluepoint I much rather FROM themselves handle the Remake/Remaster for Demon’s Souls.
Ideally i'd love it if Bluepoint remake the game with From and Miyazaki as close supervisors while From works on new games.
However if they intend to make the 6th Archstone then that has to be made 100% by From themselves.

But anyway i really hate to talk about this because for now Bluepoint is just trolling and it could be anything.

The archstone info is fairly available. I suspect it wouldn't be that hard to do with some help from From

Yes but it was (obviously) unfinished and there should have been much more content if it was to match the content of the other archstones. And that is content i only want From to touch.

I get the hype behind a Demons Souls remaster but we have had so many Souls games this gen, I hope it is something else. I’d still buy it tho!
