Microsofts "next big franchise" being built by Black Tusk Studios

#71faris_ruhiPosted 12/3/2012 1:24:07 PM(edited)
When a game usually sets out to be the "next big franchise" or the "next Halo", it ends up sucking. So I'm not expecting much from whatever they're making.

I'm almost wondering is Microsoft will try their hand at the WRPG market


Fable is Microsoft's stab at that market. They have no interest is anything that won't appeal to as much people as possible.


Right, but MS has Lionhead for Fable. Just like they have 343 for Halo, and thus the FPS genre. Lionhead lost PM (Thank goodness), but they're still with MS.

I was talking more of the Bethesda WRPG. First person and all.

It won't be racing, they have Forza. They don't want the studios they own to compete with other studios they own... So it shouldn't be another FPS... Unless they release this new IP and Halo bi-yearly, so MS would make money each year, just how Activision releases IW and Treyarch CoS games bi-yearly...


...Damn. No idea, really.



YOu forgot a lot of other sub-genres
Platformer
Fighting
Turn-based RPG
Beat'em up
TPS
Adventure
Strategy
Acion Adventure



To further check out the horrible situation of Shooters in XOBX 360, check both of these links:

In the subcategories, check out "Shooter". Youll see that Xbox has almost double the shooters than PS3. That saturated enough?

Not to start a stupid "your a troll bad troll :P" discussion, I am just stating the differences in genre distribution in games for PS360

Cool Smash is an action movie in where Matrix-and-X-Men-like characters fight in the warehouse that appeared in the first episode of Falling Skies.

So now all MS has is PGR, Forza, Halo, Gears of War, Ryse, Kinect Adventures, Fable and Black Tusks Halo alternate?

In seriousness, here's a neat podcast with the studio head of Black Tusk

According to him, MS is all about dem newips(tm)

I was just firing off what MS already has covered. I know I missed a lot of genres, because MS doesn't really have a go-to game on those genres. Not exclusive, anyway.

Well, from what I've heard Xbox has the best JRPGs from early in the gen and almost all of the WRPGs run better on 360. Also Fable is one of the best selling and most popular RPG series this gen. Sony seems to be focused more on shooters with ongoing series like Resistance, Killzone and Socom (and Uncharted which is a different kind of shooter but still a shooter imo). The only shooter series Xbox keeps pumping out are Halo and Gears.

I somewhat feel like the term "RPG" is thrown around a little bit too much considering how varied one RPG can be in almost every aspect to another RPG.

"I love RPG's! They are my favorite genre!" That holds very little meaning it seems like.
