I’m not sure going 7 years (which will probably be 9 by the time Prime 4 releases) without releasing a game can be considered only a minor thing.

There’s clearly troubled development there with one, if not two cancelled projects.

Should it? They've not made a game in almost 6 years.

Erm, yes? They have an excellent track record, especially with the Prime games.


A lot of the Prime staff have moved on since though.

But they must be doing something right for Nintendo to keep funding them? Maybe they’ve just been pitching Prime 4 non stop and Nintendo have finally given them the green light :lol:

It is an odd one, there was some chat that Nintendo were very impressed with the demo Retro pitched for Prime 4 but I don't know how much of that was made up.

Regarding funding, probably worth remembering Tropical Freeze on Switch sold over 2m copies with what probably took about 6 months development time so that would have made a juicy profit at least.

Amongst the Switch ratings are:

BioShock Remastered
BioShock 2 Remastered
BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition
BioShock: The Collection
While nothing has been officially confirmed yet, the fact that each game has been given its own rating could suggest that (in addition to buying the entire BioShock collection) individual titles may be available to download separately



It's only 2 I haven't played, will definitely have a look at that if you can download it separately.

Yep.


I'm going to go all in and say one will get announced today at 2pm if it's a Wednesday Direct or tomorrow at 2pm if it's a Thursday Direct.

For the right price I might dip my toes back in to Rapture again on Switch. Can't seem me playing Infinite again :dread: Although I'd probably play the DLC parts.

The tweet is blocked at work but do we know if there will be a physical release of The Collection?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

The tweet and the site it links to just talk about the fact that ratings have appeared on the Taiwanese games rating board - no details on release format/date.

I would personally be surprised if this was anything other than an eShop only release though.

People are saying Dante.

They’ll be wiping the egg off their faces when it turns out to be Chuckie Egg.

Dante is interesting if a bit too many moves for smash. I'd prefer Doom guy, Turrican, Bloodborne Hunter, or someone from Powerstone

Different character completely, but in a similar vein...Billy Hatcher?
