For most, weekends means two days off work with some much-needed R&R. But for game developers, it’s also a time during which they get to show off what they’ve been working on. I am of course referring to Screenshot Saturday, which involves tweeting screenshots with the #ScreenshotSaturday hashtag. Screenshots which I will be critiquing some of every single Tuesday, in Speculating Screenshots.
Different screenshots from different developers, all working on different games. Some are very much a WIP, while other are from titles rapidly approaching release. These tweets do all have one thing they in common though, which is that they feature actual screenshots (or at the very least, mockups), animated or stills. So without further ado…

But did they optimize the chapel itself for dynamic lighting, or just the in-game version? Now that… that is the question.

Ah, to be chillin’ at the beach under the sun right now would be so good. Well, except for the fact that based on the above screenshot, a war is either about to break out, or one has already begun. I think it’s the latter. FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Yeah well… we all have to start somewhere, right Yosuke? Now, I have yet to play Persona 4, but that (probably) won’t stop me from playing this doujin creation. At some point. When it’s done and out.

First a trip to the beach, then a fan creation based on a popular franchise, and now we’re going gardening? Man, this past Saturday’s screenshots sure went places. That said, is it just me, or doesn’t that screenshot look a tad creepy? https://twitter.com/PestoForce/status/569250096535244802 Super Chibi Knight (@PestoForce)
Then… do the chasing instead, eh? Surely you can take him, being level 9 and all, with that big pink sword (wait, what?)! Kick some ass, Super Chibi Knight.

Speaking of kicking ass, who the heck invited all those skeletons, and only two… uh, whatever those figures dressed in red are? Even the odds! EVEN THE ODDS! That is all.
