Aztec: the only sensible explanation for this silent treatment is if they’re getting ready for an announcement during tomorrow’s Game Awards event. What are the chances you guys think it could happen?

Busterific: I wouldn't bet on it.

Brainiac: The only way that would happen is if Geoff Keighley somehow confused Ayami for Hideo.

XombieMike: I got my map. The quality is great.

Aztec: Geoff has given time before for smaller trailers from unknown indies at TGA. Is it that impossible to think he’d give the man behind Symphony of the Night 3 minutes to show a trailer for his latest game?

Brainiac: Impossible, no. Anything approaching likely, also no.

purifyweirdshard: Bloodstained is in an unfortunate space between "unknown indies" and "big/normal game" to where it isn't small enough to be recognized as the first but too small to hang out with the latter. Precludes it from being considered for awards as much, too.

purifyweirdshard: There are concessions for "these guys are really small, but they did something very new and creative on their own", but also "these are the industry tops and they produce the best examples of x aspect of games". Bloodstained is just a mid size revival.

Brainiac: Would you put it at the so-called "double-A" level that Ninja Theory coined for its work with Hellblade, purifyweirdshard?
Dec 12, 2019 10:05:09 GMT -6
Brainiac: (Hellblade got three Game Awards itself)

purifyweirdshard: I'm not sure honestly - we're probably about whatever Shantae is, or even some of Capcom's properties at this point like Ace Attorney and Mega Man. Is there double-A, single A, medium, B+? lol

Brainiac: Apparently, some are trying for go for III as the indie equivalent as seen here. I definitely don't think Bloodstained is an indie at AAA level because, frankly, it was never intended to be

purifyweirdshard: Yeah, is that what Death Stranding is? But that's getting closer anyways.

Brainiac: Death Stranding is absolutely not indie. 505 Games may be publishing it in some forms, but the primary is Sony Interactive Entertainment.
