I miss the days when you could inspect a page's source and companies would have left the names of what they were announcing by mistake

Very, very quiet news day, I've seen this on 2 sites. 

 

There's a demo disc collection of PS1 style horror games on pc 

 

Quote

If you're looking for a weekend nostalgia hit that doesn't hang its hat on the pixel art aesthetic of the 8- and 16-bit era, then new indie collaboration The Haunted PS1 Demo Disc might be just what you're after. It harkens back to the wobbly polygons and lo-res textures of the early 90s, presenting 17 horror games for PC inspired by the PlayStation 1 era.


"Roused by the crackle of static, a lingering sense of dread crawls across the floor," teases the official blurb in a bout of spooky scene-setting, "You sit alone in your room. A dimly lit memory repeats in your head. 17 demos too horrible to describe keep you from your bed. Each one is a personally crafted nightmare. You've tried to tell others, no one understands.


"A CRT you don't remember owning flashes to life. Frozen in place you look upon the flickering screen to spy a dismal, bloodied scene. A cracked and faded jewel case sits close beside. A pale grey plastic box sits in front, emitting a low whirring noise.

"Will you take to the controller or let yourself be taken over?"



Give in to those otherworldly urges by downloading the free Haunted PS1 Demo Disc collection from itch.io, and you'll find 17 short experiences - some scary, some silly, others just plain strange - each by a different developer from the Haunted PS1 community

Following on with more horror...

 

Quote

Daymare: 1998, a third-person survival horror title inspired by "classic" examples of the genre like Resident Evil 4, is set to hit consoles in April, following a successful release on PC.

 

"After seeing the positive feedback Daymare: 1998 has been receiving on PC, we’re excited to be able to bring this game to console players," said Invader Studios' Business Development Director Michele Giannone. "And seeing our game on the shelves of retail stores is just a dream come true. Hope everybody will enjoy their visit to Keen Sight."

 

Designed to be played with a controller, Daymare: 1998 promises to deliver responsive third-person action in which you'll do battle against a horde of "bloodthirsty monsters". Nothing will be sacrificed from the original PC version on console either, the developer states.

 

Daymare: 1998 will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in both Europe and the Americas on 28th April 2020.

 

 

I'm keen to see pricing for this, I've had my eye on it for a while but it'll depend on performance and pricing.

This looks wonderful. I think we’re in for a good year of Earthbound style games between this and Oddity.

Also, the new game from the Knytt guy looks potentially cool.

Square Enix doesn't plan to release a Next Gen only title for awhile

 

Quote

 

Q: Could you share your thinking on the development of new titles for current- and next-generation game consoles going forward?

A: The next-generation consoles will have backward compatibility, so we plan for the time being to make our new titles available for both current and next-generation consoles. It will therefore be somewhat farther down the road that we release titles exclusively for the next-generation consoles.

 

Q: Will the change in you release date for “FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE” impact your development or launch timelines for the next installment?

A: No, it will not.

Why would you ignore a 170 million play base for a fraction of that?

 

And I'm so ready for brand new consoles.😊

It's more like next gen is becoming more PC like imo.

 

Let me tell you how nice it is to load up games I bought years ago and have them automatically be better on newer hardware. It's a cool thing to have on consoles too.
