First Thief trailer confirms new voice actor for Garrett

cynical

5 years ago

I think the trailer is pretty awesome. If it's representing game play mechanics then: Avoiding combat appears to be a priority, hovering in shadows watching guards and planning how to get past is required, and we'll have some gadgets to get away when shit hits the fan.

I remember that I loved Thief, but I couldn't tell you exactly why (it was so long ago). I've vividly remember crouching in a shadow, praying that a guard didn't spot me. I think the slow pacing and planning were central to my enjoyment.

I'm optimistic for the remake! (despite my username) :D

Inside PlayStation 4

@johnnyquicknives This is true for me, I assume colour based on the tone e.g. red is darker than pink generally. Blue and green (for me) are quite different, as long as we don't stray into Aqua territory. Green and red..blegh, lets hope I don't need to make any quick decisions based on the colour of the light bar!

@TelexStar Indeed, you don't get it. The speed, weight etc of movement had to be the same as the original, with digital (on/off) keys rather than analog. That's not an easy thing to achieve.

While Sony has the gaming worlds full attention, this seems like a great opportunity for them to not only announce the next console, but to really get behind the Vita.

New titles and a price drop for vita, plus the ps4 announcement could give Sony some really positive headlines.

Tech Analysis: God of War: Ascension demo

cynical

6 years ago

@danger.to.others
I think there's merit in analysing the demo code; it sets a benchmark and allows us to compare it to the final code (if we're into that sort of thing!) We can also see what has been polished or been fundamentally changed in the months between the demo and final release.

I guess it doesn't serve much purpose if you're not interested in seeing what (if anything) the developers focused on in the final months of production - other than bug fixing! - but there are plenty of us geeky people that love comparing numbers to (hopefully) better numbers :)

The texture pop on PS3 was difficult to ignore, as was the disappointing story. However I thought the gun-play, audio, enemy movement and beautifully smooth animations were amazing, and I'm ready for more.

PlayStation minis developer laments lack of Trophies, demos

cynical

6 years ago

I don't chase trophies unless I still really want to play the game after it's completed. On 2nd or 3rd play throughs (which don't happen very often!) the story and set pieces won't be as gripping; but I'll be engaged and enjoying myself because I'm trying to get 100 kills using the environment or something bizzare.

I think trophies certainly add value to good games, but I couldn't face playing a rubbish game JUST for trophies... though this trophy polish ilmaestro mentioned, genius!

The gunplay felt really really good. The way enemies would jump off the walls and roll was fantastic, and they took getting shot in the face brilliantly.

Awesome engine and mechanics, too short/boring story and average car bits. I hope the engine (without the texture pop!) gets another chance.

Vita and DS sales being compared to iPad sales is as relevant as comparing them to laptop sales. You don't see people using Vita's or DS's for business purposes, but iPads are used all the time.
