That Darkborn game looks interesting, but that name...ugh.
Maybe call it Grendal? That's what the creature reminded me of, anyways.
Literally anything but Darkborn, honestly. There's already a game named Bloodborne, there are already like fifty games that start with 'Dark-' (Darksiders, Darkstalkers, Dark Sector, Dark Void, Dark Dreams Don't Die, Dark Cloud, Dark Souls, etc). Terrible.
Anyway, in Switch news, Best Buy's website has just leaked Persona 5, Metroid Prime Trilogy and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past as upcoming Switch games. I hope those rumoured new Switch models come sooner rather than later, because I want to play all of those bad boys. Hopefully we might get one last Nintendo Direct before E3.
btw, I just got up to this part of Schreier's Anthem article and it explains so, so much:
...although even mentioning the word Destiny was taboo at BioWare. (Diablo III was the preferred reference point.) A few people who worked on the game said that trying to make comparisons to Destiny would elicit negative reactions from studio leadership. “We were told quite definitively, ‘This isn’t Destiny,’” said one developer...
...Because leadership didn’t want to discuss Destiny, that developer added, they found it hard to learn from what Bungie’s loot shooter did well. “We need to be looking at games like Destiny because they’re the market leaders,” the developer said. “They’re the guys who have been doing these things best. We should absolutely be looking at how they’re doing things.” As an example, the developer brought up the unique feel of Destiny’s large variety of guns, something that Anthem seemed to be lacking, in large part because it was being built by a bunch of people who had mostly made RPGs.
Imagine being a developer on that project, making what is obviously a game exactly like Destiny, being told "No it isn't" by your clueless bosses, and just watching helplessly as you fall into all the same traps that game did along the way.
