25 minutes of the new announced Beyond: Two Souls.
Wow, awesome footage!
This plays exactly like Heavy Rain, which I have absolutely no issue with. Seems like this will be an excellent title to own. Edited: Just finished it. Everything about this demo is amazing. Beside the one graphic glitch on the cop face, it just wows me with how much it's improved. Even though it's cam footage. I'm guessing it's the environment and setting that really makes this shine.
Here is my problem: Quantic Dream has near LIMITLESS potential as a developer to craft gaming experiences. However, this looks like another Heavy Rain in terms of control. I liked Heavy Rain a lot, but the fact is, it's mainly an on-rails QTE game. Yes, there are other things to do and such, but the majority of the gameplay is QTE-centric. I want to see Quantic Dream take the rails off and put the QTE's away and make an experience that feels like the player is FULLY in control - not slave to timed-button mashing and stick wiggling. I want to see their amazing tech showcased in something immersive that doesn't feel like you're watching a movie, or even in a movie. I want them to make a game. A bonafide game. That may not be necessarily their mission, but that is what I want. I'll still end up buying this, and I'll most likely enjoy it. But the fact is, I've seen what Quantic Dream can do with this manner of control before - now I want to see them realize and do something completely different and awe-inspiring like I know they are capable of.
creatchee Im sorry, but, what you just said makes no sense what-so-ever. I`m too tired to get into some stupid debate but how can this be considered an on rails games whereas other games arent? You have full control at all times, it`s only QTE during interactions or fights etc.QTE`s are just pushing buttons and moving analog sticks, how, is that different from other games?.You say you dont want to push buttons and wiggle the analog stick..well, what are you doing in other games? You want them to make an imersive game..but you don`t want to look like a movie.. i dunno man..just..a lot of contradictions coming from you..
@TCG Are you honestly trying to say that a QTE is the same as controlling any other game? So COD, Uncharted, Tekken, Flight Simulator, and Pac-Man are all the same, control-wise, as Heavy Rain, Beyond, and Dragon's Lair? There are exploration segments where you have control over character movement - that's given. But, as you said yourself, all of the fighting and interactions are handled through QTE's. You know - all of the traditional gameplay elements? And yes, you are on rails just as much in those sections as you are in a minecart level of a shooter. It's just a different, prettier set of rails. I'm not contradicting myself and I know exactly what I said. But since you can't understand that, I'll put it bluntly - I want Quantic Dream to make a game that DOESN'T HEAVILY RELY ON QTE's and still has the same level of quality as their previous efforts because they can do amazing things. I'm not hating on this game, Heavy Rain, or Quantic Dream. I just want something different out of them.
You know what? I don't like sports games, so I don't play sports games. I also don't then go into threads about sports games and talk about how bad they are because I don't like them. If you don't like the interactive drama genre, then I'm sure you can find another game out there that has aiming reticules and reload buttons.
I would love to see a horror game with this gameplay mechanic. Male it happen QD
ellen page on a road king harley, you can tell this is going to be an amazing experience.
yeah she is such a bad ass
wow that looks fantastic
Couldn't stop watching. AWESOME GAME!!!
Holy cow!!! this just looks awesome, as a fan of heavy rain this masterpiece is my most anticipated game of 2013, yeah I said it wuffff
YESSS!! Finally i can be with Ellen Page! On-topic: I dont quite get the concept, the controls are like Heavy Rain, which i dont mind seeing i finished it and finished Indigo Prophecy and loved them. I dont understand the other soul, what's that? Going back to supernatural stories are we Quantic? i thought this game was a psychological story from the first trailer but looks like it's going back to being supernatural. Anyways, i have faith in this company to deliver good stories.
If by first trailer you mean the robot production line video, that was jut a test demo they did to display the tech. It was showing what they've done and how good they can show emotions / facial features, etc. This will probably have a psychological part to the story, but it'll have a supernatural part to it as well.
No, I meant the interrogation scene they played at E3.
From that scene, they basically showed her talking to the ghost at one point, throwing a cup across the room, and knowing they the swat group was coming in soon to get her. The only real psychological part was just the officer asking her a few questions about who she was and her not answering anything. It then went on to show a clip of the train scene with her jumping off and the supernatural shield surrounding her. So that video did have a heavy amount of supernatural to it.
Yea, but i thought that those things were the psychological stuff. That she was imagining them or something. I didnt think they'd go for another supernatural stuff after they ruined Indigo Prophecy at the end. But as i said, i have faith in their stories, even though i dont like the supernatural stuff, they have their ways of making the characters engaging and you actually care about your decisions.
That was hugely impressive. I like the freedom Iden offers and the potential mischief you could cause. Add that to Heavy Rain elements improved with more interactivity in terms of actually controlling Jody during the sequences (they look more natural) and a lot more action than Heavy Rain (train roof, woodland dog scene, bike, the whole last section) and you have got something great. It looks ti have more gameplay variety as well. It seems like a second person game in terms of Idens parts. Oh, and I guess it looks ok as well. Seeing this has just made it jump to the top of my most wanted. I'm very very impressed QD.
Looks good. I can see this game being compatible for PS Move in day 1.
Not gunna watch! Want to "experience" the game fresh!
It might take awhile dude. I'd watch it.
You are probably right! I was just spouting my inner resevations of getting numb to the game. But I know I will HAVE to see footage of this game!
QTE's. I want direct control, change that and you have $60 waiting for you.
I think QTE's are a necessary evil for this genre. In games you can't state how fast or slow you want to achieve an objective which games like this require it. It's really no different to point and click adventures. Of course once VR becomes a 'reality' we will then be able to get around this issue. XD
just the common, fighting, drivng, aiming shooting.
It would just be another fighting, driving, shooting game.
Shenmue and Heavy Rain proved that.
What the heck was up with that dudes face?
In progress games tend to have some glitches.
It looked more like his face got burned. You can see muscle textures where his skin is supposed to be in some places. Other places you can tell it's a glitch. That same glitch happened to me once When I tried to import a model from max to mudbox.
Looks amazing, but sadly I wasn't a big fan of Heavy Rain and I can tell this plays much the same way. I don't like the confined gameplay that takes so much of the control away from you. If a game is going to do that it better have an amazing story, but Heavy Rain didn't really have that good of a narrative.
Holy crap. Was that a real German Shepard superimposed into the game?
First person point and click. Not bad :) Looks really interesting!
i love this way of controlling people i forgot where i saw it before ? something like Blood Omen 2
wow another movie-game when u sometimes press buttons,this should be called movie-abortion rather than a game.hope valve will make new game soon gaming is going to shit to fast these days.
uhu ok come on give me another shooter instead of this :/
anything,just not retarded wannabe movie
You obviously aren't an open minded gamer.
You can clearly tell when the player is actually given control. In this demo its the 1st person ghost sections where you can mess around with people and when Jody is running in the train and in the forest. Just look at her animations, its not a fluid as a QTE specific cut-scene. Very interesting, especially in regards to having the player control Jody running in the forest while pressing QTE prompts to avoid tree branches. I can see the QTE adding the "panic" experience in that particular scene along with the shaky camera. After playing Journey I'm open to anything different. Day one buy for me.
hmm graphically the faces are outsatanding. but im grossley dissapointed now i know it playes like heavy rain. i really dont like qte games at all. id rather it be a movie and be done.looked good to watch but to play it would spoil it for me.. looks like the last of us is my mostly antispated game... it was n e way but... lol
Everything I expected and more....definitely the best looking game on consoles hands down.
