Metal Gear Solid Created Entirely in Dreams and It Looks Amazing

Developer Media Molecule has created a playground for the creative minds in their long-awaited game Dreams, which released last month. We have already seen some incredible work from fans who have dabbled with the title’s mechanics and have crafted the opening sequence from Marvel’s Spider-Man and also a player who implemented their very own concept of Days Gone using the title’s custom and pre-built objects.

Following suit – YouTuber, Dreams enthusiast, and community manager for TT Games Bear Parker has released a video of the opening gameplay section of Metal Gear Solid that he has created inside the Dreams universe. Bear’s recreation of Metal Gear Solid is incredibly committed, right down to the last pixel and even kept the music authentic. He states that it’s currently in the pre-alpha stages but he’s working on adding animated environment details like ripples, drips, and rats. He also hopes to remake the entire game rather than just one level setting himself a huge challenge but from what Bear has made so far, I think the finished product will be amazing.

Bear talks further about how the containers in the level were taking up too much memory – 60 percent in fact – so he had to learn a new technique to make them more efficient. When asked if he would do a tutorial on saving system resources in Dreams, Parker responded: “You’re not the first person to request this so definitely  just need to buy some decent recording equipment first.”

Hideo Kojima even retweeted Bear’s project which is probably the most amazing compliment he could have got!

Dreams Player is Working to Recreate the Opening Scene of Marvel’s Spider-Man

Since its launch earlier this month, the highly-anticipated Dreams from developer Media Molecule has opened the floodgates to players doing all kinds of intriguing and creative things with the “make anything” game, and from one creator that includes trying to recreate one of last year’s most acclaimed PS4 titles, Marvel’s Spider-Man.

Dreams player Tamir Williams has chronicled on Twitter his attempt at crafting the opening sequence from Marvel’s Spider-Man in the game, and while it’s still a work-in-progress, it’s still an impressive display of what is possible in the hands of creators in Dreams.

Dreams has already been used a number of times to let players bring their favorite games and scenes into the game. But in particular with Williams’ attempt at crafting Marvel’s Spider-Man, it’s the perfect blend of PS4 exclusives colliding, and hopefully we’ll get to see more of the game be created so faithfully in Dreams.

You can take a look at Tamir Williams’ work on creating the intro sequence from Marvel’s Spider-Man below:

Days Gone Gets Update 1.05, Fixes Most Bugs Except for Major Audio Glitch

Days Gone, which released exclusively for PS4 on April 26th, gets a new patch to address even more issues with the game including stuttering framerate, bugs, glitches, and crashing issues among other problems.

Update 1.05 is smaller than the previous four updates, coming in at 136MB:

The changelog for all the fixes:

  • Added fixes for crashing issues with Days Gone version 1.05.
  • Added stuttering and lag fixes.
  • Days Gone 1.05 improved framerate drop issues.
  • Various performance and stability improvements.
  • Added fixes for glitches with Days Gone 1.05.
  • Added minor bug fixes and changes.

However, this update still doesn’t correct one of the most reported issues with the game: the audio glitches. These manifest at times as bugs that cause an absence of environmental sounds — unintentionally turning the Freakers into silent killers. Other players state that they can’t hear lines of dialogue in certain cutscenes and missions.

Hopefully this major problem will be fixed in upcoming patches to the game, as something like that can really pull players from the experience.

It was recently announced that Days Gone will be receiving free DLC in June which includes a Survival Mode as well as other new challenges on a weekly basis throughout the month. New bikes, combat, and horde tasks will also roll out over the course of the month.

In other news, there’s an official video detailing protagonist Deacon’s iconic bike and its importance to the game. And on the player’s side of things, one very creative fan recreated an entire scene from the game in Dreams for PS4.

You can purchase Days Gone for PS4 here if you haven’t delved into the zombie apocalypse title.

Media Molecule Shows Off What You Can Do in Dreams in Just 10 Minutes

At PAX West, the team creating Dreams, Media Molecule, challenged users on Twitter to request a variety of different things for them to build in just under 10 minutes using the in-game engine.

You can check out all of their creations in the thread down below:

Some of the creations include a watermelon temple, a bird with too many legs, as well as a farm with dancing tacos, ghosts, and a cow for good measure. The team over at Media Molecule seems quite keen on showing off just how creative players will be able to get with the engine in Dreams. If the developers can craft these creations in such little time, it’s exciting to ponder over what players will be able to cook up once the full game is available. It’s seemingly a large step up from what we got in PS3’s Little Big Planet series.

You can check out some more footage of Dreams from PlayStation Underground earlier this year. Dreams is slated to come out this year exclusively for PS4. The title unfortunately still has no release date.
