    Yea I know but it wasn't the focus, whilst in UC 3 every 5 min they were taking away control from you.

    I don't see how listing a bunch of mostly multiformat games equals too many PS3 zombie games. Dead Rising isn't worth buying on the PS3 for instance, Dead Nation is a twin stick shooter, hardly a zombie survival game, the enemies could be swapped for anything.

    I'm mostly excited about the way they render individual leaves.

    Individual leaf physics or fuck off, Naughty Dog.

    The lead designer of Enslaved is working on this btw, seems that is an inspiration for them. I hope they get rid of the sticky jumps as well, always hated that about UC.

    I'm not sure I did. Burnout, GT, Twisted metal and Wipeout are about as different as you can get within the same genre so lumping them all together as boring just because they have one common element is daft.

    Speaking of survival games, just remembered that I have a mostly unplayed copy of SOS: the final escape, worth a go?

    And again, I generally find zombies boring. The enemy type. Not the games. I can still enjoy the games. I think you're trying to argue against me with a point that doesn't exist. It's just an opinion - I don't like zombies. I still like the likes of L4D regardless.

    You can't get as much variety with zombies as you can with racers.

    Exactly Derbs. Dead Space is basically a zombie game as well, but it's probably the best execution of survival horror this generation (haven't played Amnesia). Not a game whose existence you should begrudge because Dead Rising and Burn Zombie Burn also exist.

    Does everyone expect this to just be a reskinned Uncharted with 'infected' instead of mercenaries or pirates?

  • Deleted user 11 December 2011 12:17:56
    Zombie games create an enemy with no motivation other than to kill which is generally not that interesting. The best zombie films focus heavily on social commentary or human stories where they are just used as the metaphor/threat.

    ND are pretty decent at story telling compared to most other game companies so this might be ok otherwise it'll just be another duck shoot where you replace waves of dumb soldier grunts with zombies.

    The first room has a dead guy (not infected) on the bed and Ellie enters the room after Joel has battered and killed 2 more guys (also not infected) who they then search.

    ND aren't stupid and it already looks/sounds like the infected element is a common threat for all the survivors.

    A muscle-bound, white American dude shoots his way through a horde of zombies while protecting his hapless white American female sidekick.

    You've got to applaud Naughty Dog's originality and risk taking.

    I think they should make it semi open world or hub based like Deus Ex, give us different ways to approach the levels. I reckon you will control the man for the action or combat and the girl for the platforming and puzzles.
  • Deleted user 11 December 2011 12:36:44
    That sounds terrible.

    Something like the Ico approach of having to protect the girl would be nice.

    Unless it's campaign co-op, you'll be the girl.

    But as long as it's a good game and lots of fun, that's the main thing. Isn't it?....

    The ICO approach would work as well, but it would be a hard sell. The one about the man being for the action may be awful but the game would do better commercially.

    "Zombie"/"infected" is just a catch-all phrase for humanoid enemy types that aren't humans these days, ND can do whatever they want with them. It's not like the trailer suggests they're the raised arms/shuffling feet or the L4D variant.

    A muscle-bound, white American dude shoots his way through a horde of zombies while protecting his hapless white American female sidekick.

    That's not exactly what I got from the trailer.
  • Deleted user 11 December 2011 12:49:02
    I think the deus ex way would be cool, say have some equipment you need to get to, you can stealth your way through or use the enviroment.

    Originality is one of the rarest things you can find. Ideas and concepts evolve over time. The people who make them fresh and relevant are the ones to be applauded. Those who make it fresh, relevant and timeless. Those are the ones that should be looked up to.

    Naughty Dog have a consistent track record in the first category and at least one game in the latter(UC2). That is why I'm excited for this and you should be too.

    Your loss, you have these blinkers on thinking Dale is the be all and end all in there but you couldn't be more wrong.

    It's an excellent group and we talk about how gay you are.
    Given the membership of said group, is the prevailing conclusion of this discussion "not gay enough to join us."

    It's still bound to be great, it's just I can't see myself caring much about the characters' plight, going by the trailer.

    It's a Naughty Dog game. It'll be a lovely looking and highly scripted and linear 3rd person shooter. With zombies.
