KoopaTV Live Reacts to PlayStation 5's The Future of Gaming Conference

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Remember throughout that they are promising the biggest generational transition in the history of the videogame industry.

Unfortunately, we are living in an era known as FakE3 2020, where the week(s)-long succession of intense gaming news drops and coverage... doesn't exist.

However, one company, Sony, dares to have a legitimate conference (or Direct) during what would have been E3 2020. That's quite interesting, since they swore off participating at the real E3 2020 if it was going to actually happen, but they're also the only ones who are getting into FakE3 2020.

Sony promises to reveal many games and details about the PlayStation 5, of which we only really know it's coming out later in 2020 and it has a weird and offensive (to some) controller, the DualSense.

Join me and Heavy Lobster (and... Kamek...who flew in on his broom very late and then had his own set of reactions at the end of the log, which take a more optimistic tone) as we watched Sony's conference, which you can also watch a video-on-demand of here:


[3:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.twitch.tv/playstation

[3:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm watching here.

[3:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But my gosh the Twitch chat is obnoxious.

[3:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It is solely emoji spam.

[3:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Probably because it's an "Emote Only Chat"

[3:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Who thought that's a good idea?

[3:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: hides the chat

[3:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Not this KoopaTV chat of course)

[3:59 PM] HeavyLobster: Is it bad that I care more about Switch emulation? Because the only 4k gaming I need is Xenoblade Definitive in 4k. Dolphin texture packs could only do so much for the original.

[3:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I am incredibly aware that the only company with a conference during what would've been E3 2020 is Sony, who wasn't going to be in E3 2020 anyway.

[4:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's 16:00.

[4:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm still staying tuned.

[4:00 PM] HeavyLobster: Me too.

[4:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Twitch's viewership numbers jumped to 654,164.

[4:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: YouTube apparently has over a million.

[4:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 16:01, fade to black.

[4:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mature content that may not be suitable for all audiences.

(Well, guess I'm out.)

[4:01 PM] HeavyLobster: I'd try a drinking game where you take a drink every time BLM is referenced, but I'm worried I wouldn't last long.

[4:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: What if I force references to BLM where they don't exist?
'CAUSE THAT'S WHY THEY FADED TO BLAAACK

[4:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They got some fancy computer-generated geometry symbols for their controller buttons.

[4:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm on the lookout for the evil hamburger button.

[4:03 PM] HeavyLobster: Are we gonna get CHAZ simulator? because I'd love to be able to play as my own warlord.

[4:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So this is called "PS5 - THE FUTURE OF GAMING SHOW" but their first thing is GRAND THEFT AUTO V.

[4:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which is definitely NOT the future.

[4:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's over half a decade ago in the past!

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "EXPANDED AND ENHANCED"

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "COMING 2021 TO PLAYSTATION 5"

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright, real nice future of gaming there.

[4:05 PM] HeavyLobster: 2020 feels like living in GTA.

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Big first reveal is a port.

[4:06 PM] HeavyLobster: So the next gen is gonna be the same as the current gen.

[4:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Jim Ryan now coming to talk about what a privilege it is to open today's presentation with a port.

[4:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Literally his words.

[4:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Biggest generational transition our industry has ever seen"

[4:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And what better way than to port the game from the current generation?

[4:07 PM] HeavyLobster: GTA V with slightly better graphics, whoopee!

[4:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, but now they're promising, from this point forward, this is all footage from PlayStaytion 5.

[4:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales, coming to PlayStation 5.

[4:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Can't tell if a BLM reference or that'd happen anyway)

[4:09 PM] HeavyLobster: So they're just making slightly better-looking versions of all the games that were on PS4.

[4:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, next up, in traditional E3 fashion, is the car porn segment.

Gran Turismo 7 PlayStation 5 real driving simulator Gulf blue car porn
Oh... cars... vroom vroom... oh, more baby, more!
(Brought to you by Gulf Oil)

[4:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Brought by Gran Turismo...!

[4:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Is back!"

[4:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I wasn't aware it ever left!)

[4:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Featuring thrilling car engine noises, I guess.

[4:10 PM] HeavyLobster: Where's Todd Howard? I need some TES 76, I mean 6, footage.

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Still car engine noises.

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Fade to black.

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "The real driving simulator"

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, I guess.

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright now here's something infinitely more interesting.

[4:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Featuring Ratchet.

[4:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And grind-rails.

[4:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Where are we?"

"Beats me."

Same thought here.

[4:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Clank got pwned

[4:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf who is that

[4:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart"

Marcus Smith of Insomniac Games excited to talk about Ratchet & Clank being built "from the ground up".

[4:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Something about interdimensional rifts.

[4:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Noting the gameplay is "PRE-ALPHA FOOTAGE"


Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart kraken large octopus
It's a kraken!
Or a very large octopus! ...And then we don't know what it does afterwards, 'cause it goes into the rift.

[4:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But he does seem to be swapping in and out of dimensions.

[4:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For what purpose, I dunno.

[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SQUARE ENIX

[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ALRIGHT
[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "In a world not her own"

[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Where resolve will be tested"

[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Truths will be questioned"

[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "And devotions will be doubted"

[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "She will rise"

[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Who is she?

[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm all for questioning truths.

[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "PROJECT ATHIA"

[4:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "DESIGNED EXCLUSIVELY FOR PLAYSTATION 5" fade to black.

Alright that wasn't informative.

[4:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Annnd they're moving on already.

[4:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Definitely a fan of "R.I.P. HUMANS <3"

Stray R.I.P. HUMANS ♥ PlayStation 5 robot alleyway cat
Ludwig really enjoys the idea of his target audience's species all being wiped out.
Shows how much he cares about you.

[4:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Some kinda robot world + cat.

[4:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Stray"

[4:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Coming 2021.

[4:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright I guess the cat is the important character.

[4:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sorry, Heavy Lobster. Robots are just NPCs, again.

[4:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Some kinda montage of PlayStation 5 technical features, including whatever "3D Audio" is.

[4:21 PM] HeavyLobster: RIP.

[4:21 PM] HeavyLobster: Robot Lives Matter!

[4:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not there's no longer a "trade-off" between artistic vision and technical limitations.

I feel like they said that for the PlayStation 4.

[4:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And 3.

[4:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Though definitely not 2.

[4:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This seems like a woman who is getting PTSD from being part of President Donald John Trump's Space Force.

[4:23 PM] HeavyLobster: There's only a trade-off between artistic vision and social justice censorship.

[4:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Social justice censorship so far not confirmed on PlayStation 5!

Maybe it's getting dropped with the BIGGEST GENERATIONAL TRANSITION IN HISTORY.

[4:24 PM] HeavyLobster: Need to see some anime boobs to confirm that.

[4:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Returnal" is the name of PTSD cycle-broken woman.

[4:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Erm, her game. Not her actual name.

[4:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: How about furry boobs?

[4:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 'cause that's apparently what this is.

[4:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ....oh nevermind.

[4:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Not even close it's Sackboy in a tiger costume.


Sackboy A Big Adventure tiger costume PlayStation 5 zipper
Well, this doesn't satisfy anyone. Furries or female anime character fans. Sad!

[4:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Got some Super Plumber Odyssey vibes.

[4:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright, here are some boobs, though non-anime.

[4:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...(And not what I'd consider appealing)

[4:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "DESTRUCTION ALLSTARS"

[4:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminds me of Rocket League, except without an actual objective.

[4:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright, that should satisfy you.

[4:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Woman with a wand being followed by...sentient turds?

[4:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wand also is a bow.

[4:30 PM] HeavyLobster: Monolith Soft set the bar pretty high for me.

[4:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So maybe it's Pikmin + Breath of the Wild.

[4:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "KENA Bridge of Spirits"

[4:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's not high, that's...big. >.>

[4:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oooh, scaley people.

[4:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I should like this, theoretically. <.<

[4:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Book-burning.

[4:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's fun too, I guess.

[4:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Goodbye Volcano High"

[4:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "It's the end of an era. 2021."

Well, 2021 is already over. >.>

[4:33 PM] HeavyLobster: I hate high school so damn much. Mind you I had a decent time back then, but teenagers suck.

[4:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But they're scaley teenagers.

[4:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That should be an instant improvement over human scum.

[4:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Meanwhile these are just creepy alien things.

[4:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: On...a train.

[4:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ew.

[4:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Doesn't Ghostwire: Tokyo already exist?

[4:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With that odd living-anime woman who quit the company?

Ghostwire Tokyo Shinji Mikami Tango Gameworks PlayStation 5
We first saw Ghostwire: Tokyo last year at Bethesda's E3 2019 conference.

[4:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...I guess it never came out.

[4:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So this is the BIGGEST GENERATIONAL TRANSITION featuring a game that apparently got moved from PlayStation 4 to 5?

[4:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Superbrothers"

Hm... Where have I heard super brothers before... <_<

[4:38 PM] HeavyLobster: I mean the only way to really get a bigger generational transition than Super Mario 64 would be immersive VR.

[4:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I guess this is Space Force again.

That's my thought too, regarding VR and generational transition, but hey, I'm not the one claiming this is the biggest transition ever.

[4:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm just repeating the claim 'cause it's stupid and silly.

[4:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

[4:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: .....

[4:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Afraid? You should be."

Dang right I am. >_>

[4:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Solar Ash"

Looks like the Monado I dunno.

[4:43 PM] HeavyLobster: The games generally look fine, but this really just feels like the PS4 2.0. Not that that's a terrible thing.

[4:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright the guy said "Hitman III" but his accent makes him sound like he said "Pikmin 3"

[4:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's no video.

[4:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's just audio.

[4:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Guess that's my problem. >_>

[4:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: eek

[4:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, uh, here's a robot life mattering.

[4:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Astro's Playroom"

[4:46 PM] HeavyLobster: Is that Super Wall-E Odyssey?

[4:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I...guess.

[4:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Might be closer to Sunshine, who knows.

[4:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is this Subnautica?

[4:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...guessing no.

[4:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For a brief moment it was, and then the rest of this trailer is above-ground. >.>

[4:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright it's Twilight Princess.

[4:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Little Devil Inside"

[4:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Zion Williamson" of the "New Orleans Pelicans"

[4:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...oh it's a basketballer I thought it was a game developer.

[4:50 PM] HeavyLobster: Yeah, a basketball player. Still remember him doing some crazy stuff at Duke against my Virginia Cavaliers.

[4:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And NBA 2k21 "actual pre-alpha footage"

[4:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Seemed like useless footage unlike the Ratchet & Clank pre-alpha footage.

[4:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: STRAWBERRY

[4:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

[4:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: oh nevermind it's fake news it moves and has googly eyes.


Island of Bugsnax Bug Snax strawberry
Just like all roses have thorns, all strawberries have googly eyes.

[4:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "half bot, half snack"

[4:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (from the developers behind Octodad)

[4:51 PM] HeavyLobster: Wtf is this?

[4:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Town is on fire.

[4:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Good topical trailer addition.

[4:52 PM] HeavyLobster: Very relevant to 2020.

[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Shuhei Yoshida, as head of independent developer initiative.

[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Before we get to the end of the show"

[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We're getting to the end already?

[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I have something very near and dear to me."

[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So far I dunno wot this is but it doesn't seem like something nearable or dearable.

[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's a giant ugly dragon smashing infrastructure.

[4:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Demon's Souls" wait that already exists

[4:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: From over a decade ago!

[4:55 PM] HeavyLobster: Yeah.

[4:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: uhhhh

[4:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So is this a looting simulator??

[4:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...With time travel?

[4:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: From Bethesda?

[4:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Featuring a guy who dies all the time I guess.

[4:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Trying to find a timeline where he doesn't die.

[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sniping black woman.

[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Rival assassins locked in a timeloop"

[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I dunno, when's No More Heroes 3 coming out? Probably gonna do the rival assassin trippy thing better.

[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: New trailer featuring a VERY quiet narrator.

[4:59 PM] HeavyLobster: The premise is at least somewhat interesting, but there'll probably be other games that pull off the execution better.

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Telling "just a local tale."

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright gonna assume this is some horror thing in a cabin in the woods.

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...or maybe not.

[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Horror thing in other locales.

[5:01 PM] HeavyLobster: One big positive of this show is that it's actually about games, which is not always the case with E3 presentations.

[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "VILLAGE"

[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wait what

[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: RESIDENT EVIL VIII?

[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Taking the ILL in Village to become a VIII.

[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Are we at the end of the show given the "before we get to the end of the show" disclaimer?

[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hologram cat.


PRAGMATA hologram cat kitten PlayStation 5 CAPCOM
You know, looking at a still image of this... maybe it's not correct to call this a hologram.

[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...alright they had me at the hologram cat but they lost me with everything else.

[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "PRAGMATA"

[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Coming 2022 from CAPCOM.

[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well I guess that's all we're gonna see from CAPCOM since there's another weird PlayStation computer-generated montage-breaker.

[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Instead, Sony themselves are presenting...

[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...a bunch of trees.

[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And a beach.

[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Was that a Torterra?

[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: oh wait

[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No it's Horizon. >.>

[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Could've still been a Torterra, though.

Horizon Forbidden West Torterra grass moss turtle tortoise Aloy PlayStation 5
Kamek tells me that this is new to Horizon: Forbidden West, so for now, we'll call it a Torterra.

[5:07 PM] HeavyLobster: They're really going all-in on the PS4 2 tack. Mind you that's the most logical route for them to go, but it's not particularly interesting to talk about.

[5:07 PM] HeavyLobster: Stick with what works.

[5:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Where's Kamek? He'd know more about this.

[5:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Horizon Forbidden West"

[5:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ah well that's over.

Is E3 over?

[5:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nah they're having a bunch of Guerilla people talk different parts of one sentence.

[5:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now a montage of game developers.

Welcome to PlayStation 5 game developer faces montage collage
They could've at least put that basketballer here for some DIVERSITY.
I mean, I thought he was a game developer. Might as well sneak him in.

[5:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "A whole new generation of games and experiences."

[5:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "New experiences like we've never had before."

[5:10 PM] HeavyLobster: These seem very much like what we had before on PS4.

[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (It's going into another computer-generated particle montage thing)

[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh.

[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's...

[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's alien technology.

[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The console itself.


PlayStation 5 PS5 console DualSense controller white
Both of the objects in the screenshot are ugly.
They're gonna charge an unknown amount for THIS to be in your house?

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: IT MULTIPLIED

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THERE'S TWO

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "PlayStation 5 Digital Edition"

[5:12 PM] HeavyLobster: There's a Digital-only version.

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Media Remote" looks like a complicated nightmare

[5:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Games that can only be enjoyed with the full range of PlayStation 5's power" like Grand Theft Auto V??

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well I don't care about the actual contents of this, but I am pleased that FakE3 2020 at least had one E3-equivalent thing during the time period.

[5:15 PM] Kamek: i'm here

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh.

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Um...

[5:15 PM] Kamek: is it over

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Yeah it's...

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's in the ending montage.

[5:15 PM] Kamek: cool. I'm watching from the beginning then

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "PLAY HAS NO LIMITS"

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright they're fading to black.

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And that's done.

[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "The views and opinions expressed on this program are those of the persons appearing on the program and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of Sony Interactive Entertainment"

[5:16 PM] HeavyLobster: Did they mention the price?

[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nope.

[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Personally I think it'll be five hundred and ninety nine US Dollars.

[5:17 PM] Kamek: nah they purposefully chose to keep the price down

[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: How do you know if you dunno wot the price is? >_>

[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The price is kept down on the "digital edition" thing.

[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So the price will be kept up on the physical one.

[5:17 PM] Kamek: I disagree

[5:18 PM] Kamek: $550 or less for both versions

[5:19 PM] HeavyLobster: I feel like if the price were low they'd come out and say it.

[5:19 PM] Kamek: I'm feeling $499

[5:19 PM] Kamek: for the more expensive version

[5:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, your prediction will be immortalised, so it'll be fun to see what happens. :D

[5:20 PM] Kamek: BELIEVE IT

[5:20 PM] Kamek: also Sony CEO has Reggie hands syndrome

[5:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...
eek.
Am I supposed to end the log here or is Kamek gonna supply thoughts?

[5:22 PM] Kamek: err

[5:22 PM] Kamek: no you're fine

[5:22 PM] Kamek: reggie hands seemed poignant

[5:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I mean there's... one part I do want your thoughts on.

[5:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In particular.

[5:22 PM] Kamek: >>

[5:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But it's also at the end!

[5:23 PM] Kamek: very well

[5:23 PM] Kamek: I'll just supply my own thoughts

[5:24 PM] Kamek: and comment on yours

[5:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright, I guess... I'll keep this open!

[5:27 PM] Kamek: Ratchet and Clank is more impressive to me than Gran Turismo

[5:30 PM] Kamek: yeah Ratchet and Clank  is pretty impressive

[5:33 PM] Kamek: Project Athia. Usually I can see the seams if that makes sense?

[5:33 PM] Kamek: but with these new games during the gameplay bits I cannot or it's very difficult

[5:34 PM] Kamek: alright backpack kitty is adorable and should be a mascot of something

[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The...seams? I don't follow. >_>

[5:34 PM] Kamek: like

[5:34 PM] Kamek: You can tell certain objects are designated as certain things.

[5:35 PM] Kamek: like old cartoons

[5:35 PM] Kamek: the backgrounds were a certain color

[5:35 PM] Kamek: and animated things were a certain way

[5:35 PM] Kamek: not exactly that

[5:35 PM] Kamek: but the idea

[5:35 PM] HeavyLobster: I feel like they checked off a lot of boxes with sequels to good, popular games. Predictability is good for business. They didn't screw up like with the PS3 reveal.

[5:37 PM] HeavyLobster: Like the Nintendo Switch's reveal was interesting because we had no idea what would happen. We know PS5 will sell well assuming it's reasonably priced and the economy doesn't totally collapse.

[5:38 PM] Kamek: Ooo

[5:38 PM] Kamek: they did the Gladiator scene

[5:38 PM] Kamek: in this....apocalypse space game

[5:38 PM] Kamek: Returnal

[5:39 PM] Kamek: that's really odd

[5:39 PM] Kamek: neat visualization though

[5:39 PM] Kamek: Is that an incineroar?

[5:39 PM] Kamek: oh

[5:39 PM] Kamek: nvm

[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...That was my thought, too!

[5:40 PM] Kamek: ah

[5:40 PM] Kamek: these games have minimal HUDs

[5:40 PM] Kamek: that's what it is

[5:40 PM] Kamek: see?

[5:40 PM] Kamek: it gives it the breath of the wild feel

[5:40 PM] Kamek: which makes the game more expansive and impressive feeling

[5:40 PM] Kamek: that's what these games have in common

[5:41 PM] Kamek: They're cheating

[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I just wanna say I played Breath of the Wild with the heads-up display on.

Or maybe they haven't programmed in the HUD on their pre-alpha footage.

[5:41 PM] Kamek: you should play it with no HUD it's a different experience

[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But then I won't know what the controls are. >_>

[5:41 PM] Kamek: ....really?

[5:42 PM] Kamek: car battle game looks like fun. I've always been very interested in battle vehicles

[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Yeah, there's, like, 5 buttons, you can't expect me to remember all of those. >_>

This isn't Zelda on the Game Boy Advance where I have only two buttons.

[5:43 PM] Kamek: ...we can talk about that later

[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...alright. <_<

[6:16 PM] Kamek: but these games are turning my stomach a little

[6:17 PM] Kamek: somebody didn't mix this audio correctly

[6:17 PM] Kamek: narration is too quiet

[6:17 PM] Kamek: oh. You said that already

[6:17 PM] Kamek: what?! he got shot! you can't say friendly after getting shot

[6:18 PM] Kamek: also is the frame rate awful for you guys?

[6:19 PM] Kamek: oh

[6:19 PM] Kamek: resident evil

[6:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Eh, typical CAPCOM things.

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Could you be slightly more descriptive so we know which part you're at? >_>

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Actually there's only two more games it could be.

[6:24 PM] Kamek: "Pragmota?"

[6:24 PM] Kamek: did i get that right?

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: PRAGMATA

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: From CAPCOM, coming 2022.

[6:24 PM] Kamek: does the robot girl have a french accent?

[6:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The game after this is the one I'm waiting on your thoughts on.

I dunno you're the French expert.

[6:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think anyone who sounds like that is vaguely European.

[6:25 PM] Kamek: after pragmata?

[6:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ya.

[6:25 PM] Kamek: okay...

[6:31 PM] Kamek: Horizon Zero Dawn is one of my favorite games

[6:32 PM] Kamek: there was definitely a situ-

[6:32 PM] Kamek: whoa

[6:32 PM] Kamek: weird PS5 design

[6:32 PM] Kamek: it's like if Alienware made a Wii

[6:32 PM] Kamek: what ports are those

[6:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I dunno)

[6:34 PM] Kamek: reggie hands

[6:34 PM] Kamek: I like it?

[6:34 PM] Kamek: the console?

[6:34 PM] Kamek: Maybe?

[6:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You do? It creeps me out.

[6:34 PM] Kamek: It's odd

[6:34 PM] Kamek: but it reminds me of the wii

[6:35 PM] Kamek: I'm digging this though

[6:35 PM] Kamek: I'm pretty excited for these features

[6:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, alright.


Do you view it as the biggest generational transition in gaming history?

[6:36 PM] Kamek: mostly the 3D audio

[6:36 PM] Kamek: no

[6:36 PM] Kamek: definitely not

[6:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...and can you explain what 3D audio is?

[6:36 PM] Kamek: Mark Cerny went over it in his ASMR Tech video

[6:36 PM] Kamek: it is what it says it is

[6:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminds me of "HD Rumble"

[6:37 PM] Kamek: it's supposed to be an audio system so advanced that it can almost fool your ears

[6:37 PM] Kamek: you set up a sound profile

[6:37 PM] Kamek: to match your ears

[6:37 PM] Kamek: and it makes the game audio super detailed to you

[6:37 PM] Kamek: I like the way he describes it

[6:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: o.o

I assume you need the headphones for that.

[6:38 PM] Kamek: errr probably

[6:38 PM] Kamek: I'm looking for the video now

[6:40 PM] Kamek: https://youtu.be/ph8LyNIT9sg?t=2304

[6:40 PM] Kamek: that's where it starts

[6:41 PM] Kamek: errr

[6:41 PM] Kamek: https://youtu.be/ph8LyNIT9sg?t=2403

[6:41 PM] Kamek: this is better

[6:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Not to oversimplify"

[6:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So it's "make the audio more immersive"

[6:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And apparently advanced stuff with sound waves.

[6:44 PM] Kamek: 42:42

[6:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HRTF

[6:44 PM] Kamek: thats what I was talking about

[6:45 PM] Kamek: "How we measure"

[6:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well...

...Uh...

[6:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Any closing thoughts?

[6:46 PM] Kamek: I'm optimistic

[6:46 PM] Kamek: Let me gather the games i'm personally interested in

[6:49 PM] Kamek: Horizon Forbidden West, of course
Pragmata
ZOMBIE MANTA RAY (only, the game not so much)
Girl with magic staff (kinda interested in)
Battle cars game
Ratchet and Clank

[6:49 PM] Kamek: so let's see

[6:49 PM] Kamek: out of all games that's a good spread

[6:49 PM] Kamek: 3 maybe 4 games I could be persuaded to buy

[6:50 PM] Kamek: But yeah. Optimistic

[6:50 PM] Kamek: price is name of the game though

[6:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (KENA Bridge of Spirits is girl with magic staff)

[6:50 PM] Kamek: oh yeah good voice acting

[6:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: lol



Did any part of the PlayStation 5's showcase make you feel like the game industry has been totally revolutionised? Or, at least, anything you want? What are your bets on how much the different SKUs will cost? By the way, if you want some more thoughts on what a true generational shift will take, KoopaTV has already written an article on that last month.


Sony listened to KoopaTV's feedback, and their second PlayStation 5 conference in September promised much less than this one. So what did KoopaTV think of that one?

2 comments :

  1. Ghostwire isn't a PS4 game moved to PS5. No platform was ever given for it when it was announced last year (and there was no reason to think it would be out already, either).

    I didn't see anything revolutionary, but I saw tons of games I want.

    1. I suppose they never announced a platform or a release date.

      So everyone was enthusiastic about it purely because of that bizarre woman? >_>
