    Found some offscreen footage of Lost Soul Aside

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNmS-M9x5_c

    In case anyone here didn't know or did know and forgot, this was originally a game made by a single person and the trailer he put out for it blew up like crazy, reaching millions of views, and a bunch of companies contacted him, including sony and epic

    He now has an actual team to help him out

    medievil is one of my favorite ps1 games so im thrilled to pieces about that, one of my really good college memories was playing it with my best bro with it being our first time seeing the game in like, 2010

    2 is a dumpster fire though

    It's pretty wild to consider how much of a following medievil still has, despite only ever getting one poorly-recieved sequel, and then disappearing entirely, save for a mobile remake and sir dan's appearance in sony's smash bros. knock-off

    hmm so that FromSoft thing
    I get why people make the connection to Shadow Tower based on the extremely limited information of "an image of some weird grimy bone and metal contraption, and a tagline that mentions shadows coming back," but I don't think it could be a Shadow Tower thing. I think I heard from some interview translation or other that From was trying to take a break from Souls stuff with this project, since that's basically all they've worked on for so many years now, and I am pretty sure Shadow Tower was basically a first-person action RPG in the same style as their King's Field games, part of the lineage that grew into the Souls games in the first place.

    I like how From software trying to break from the souls stuff is grimy fantasy weapons in a grimy fantasy tower with some text talking about darkness.

    Watching an LP of Darkened Skye not knowing what it was and having it revealed halfway through the video was a pretty incredible experience.

    I remember seeing the Darkened Skye boxart at Blockbuster or something when I was a kid and thinking it looked alright. I had no idea it was a Skittles game.

    it was originally a licensed skittles game but the license got pulled I think?

    Nope, literal Skittles candy is your magic in that game. S&S considered pulling the license but it was after the game was finished so they couldn't actually remove the licensed content or text. They just took the Skittles branding off the box in a retroactively hilarious move.

    First off, I don't think many companies want to be positively associated with the mass slaughter of others.

    Second, man would giving players wings break that gameplay!

    You kidding me? Mountain Dew trips all over itself to sponsor Call of Duty.

    Marvel was trying really hard to push sponsorship of a real life military weapons developer.

    Also, you know, no actual people are harmed in the playing of PUBG or CoD.

    They are videogames.

    Okay, didn't know about CoD. Glad I stopped drinking soda recently.

    And I left myself an out because I knew about the military weapons sponsorship stuff that was going on, which I find kind of disgusting. License a real gun, that's fine, but advertising and promoting it is just stupid.

    And the argument that it's just videogames doesn't hold water for me. Games are as big an entertainment venue as any other these days. Product placement is fine where it is natural - Marky mark ripping the top off of a beer on an expensive car notwithstanding. But PubG's environment does not feel like something you'd find in the real world.... hopefully. If you started introducing product placement, the game would feel like some kind of dystopian blood sport.

    So.. I guess what I'm saying is that I prefer product placement to be used where it makes sense.

    ... All hail Zima, the official drink of Babylon 5.

    Yeah but we're talking about what corporations would do, not what you would do, and corporations don't have that compunction (nor do they give a shit about much in general). Like the optical issue you're worried about here is not one most companies that would consider sponsorship would have, at all.

    Again look to the Marvel example--those optics were terrible in a way that was immediately apparent to a ton of their audience, but the poor reception caught them completely off guard and they spent a bunch of time trying to convince us to go along with it before begrudgingly backing down.

    Sponsorship almost never bothers me, ever.

    I remember people losing their minds at Alan Wake's sponsorship because he had a Verizon phone and used Energizer batteries. At one point he drives past a Verizon billboard too.

    Those are all things I see and relate to and it is a hell of a lot more immersive then when characters have Energezer batteries and use Horizon phones.

    So I have issues with product placement, but yeah the only thing that ruins immersion more than hamhandedly showing off a real life product is when you have obvious stand-ins. Sometimes someone will put in the work to really have fun with the not-brand-x thing and make a proper joke out of it but usually it's just an uncanny valley sort of thing

    The cup noodle thing was fucking great.

    It reminded me of the head and shoulders gag in Evolution or that scene in Wayne’s World. Product placement so blatant and self aware that it loops around from awful to hilarious.

    I actually like when there are spoofed brands in things. It’s fun to see the creative twists the writers put on stuff.

    I like it less when it’s just changing a single letter and keeping the real brand’s look.

    Yakuza is filling to the absolute brim with real world products like Mountain Dew and I assume the lovingly-rendered various boozes.

    So yeah, I'm not terribly fussed by real world products existing in digital mock-ups of the real world.
