Replayability.

To give another example: I know people who to this day continue to play nethack with a passion.  Nobody would give a crap about that game 25 years later if it wasn't for all the randomized elements.

・Online Only

Sigh.

Next gen is going to be the death of the single player game.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

The music does not fit at all with their wannabe-Dark-Souls visuals complimented by out-of-context, awkward snippets of conversation that never cease.

More like Demon's Souls visuals (and no they are not the same).

At first I didn't get what they were trying to do with with the music, but later I noticed that it fits the trailer nicely even if it may not seem appropriate with what is being presented.

Seriously, did anyone get anything from all the yapping?  Did anyone actually pay attention to what they were saying?

Is random dialogue most likely from NPCs I assume. Is kinda difficult to make out what some of them are saying but long story short is that there is a lot of despair and something about the research of memories from the past.

...dunno. We have to wait for TGS for (hopefully) more concrete details.

I never understood the appeal of making random dungeons.  Worse is that it sounds like it's a selling point sometimes; to me it's just an excuse for linear or grid-like level design without any interesting assets.

It can work well in certain games, if they draw from a template which isn't completely randomised like Rogue Legacy. That has lots of designed rooms and it just mixes up which ones you see in a playthrough. In other games though, more often than not it's as you say with lots of bland featureless corridors that are no substitute for actual level design.

Deep Down management producer discusses concept, long-term approach -- Gematsu

Instead of quoting a small tease of the article I recommend reading the whole thing.

From what I've gathered in the last few months since I stopped updating the thread is that the project has been growing much more of what it was originally anticipated and it's slowly taking form, so all of those delays that the game has had seem to have been put to good use.

I read the whole article and it sounds more like they're just having a hard time developing for the PS4, and that they decided to strengthen their content delivery plan during development. While the features sound reassuring, hearing that "Every solution we came up with seemed to create more problems than it solved, so it has really been one step forward, two steps back the whole way” is very worrying...though I guess that may just be a part of the programming side, which wouldn't be unusual, especially for new hardware.
