GCO: "In Beyond: Two Souls, the main character Jodie Holmes can’t die because it’s, well, “complicated.""
seems like this means that there will be only one main character that is playable. More focus on the development of one person.
Wait, so what if I just didn't do anything?
Like when those swat dudes are after you? Apparently you'll end up getting caught and thrown in prison or something like that I heard... The story continues from there if you go that route.
That sounds ... Awesome :D I like the 'continue with the game with what just happened' style of play, not the 'game over, restart' kind of game
WTH, that's definitely different. So they'll be multiple endings in this as well. Hmmmm. This could be interesting. Would really make your decisions weigh heavily on you. No wonder they said it like making 4 or 5 movies at once. I wonder how intricate the branching paths will be.
Well, I liked Heavy Rain, and will be looking into this game. Odd that you can't die, but they have good writers, so lets hope they can pull it off!
Hmmmm. Sounds a little odd but okay. I suppose if people in shows could go without the main character ever dying I guess I could deal with this too. Beside even if she can't die she could still probably get hurt. If she gets a near fatal gun shot wound and gets taken to a hospital and doesn't die from it I suppose that could be just as dramatic. you will probably just have to escape from the hospital.I mean main characters in shows don't usually die do they no matter how much they get shot at and beaten up.So why not?
when does the main character ever die anyway?
heavy rain , nomad soul , and farenheit all had their playable character dying ( without game over ) Comming from Quantic is this indeed intresting
Watched the gameplay video of this and wow, really looking forward to it, love the way you posses the npc's in the game and cause havoc, not being able to die also opens up other possible story branches.
Because she's already dead and the game is her afterlife
Its very similar to Heavy Rain, especially those QTEs. There are multiple paths to go down.
I'll just let the game play itself then xD
You still have to do things. You still have to trigger certain events, like waking up Jodie on the train, or escaping from jail in the first place. Otherwise, you just sit there.
But then... essentially if I wanted to, I could have Jodie sleeping for days on end, nobody gets off the train, train goes no where, police just stand there. Awesome. lol
What if you kill yourself? Do you get to play on in the non-existing after life? Maybe you are reincarnated as a pig via the non-existing reincarnation system. You can then play as the pig. This is very attractive for people who liked Babe. I think I may have gotten carried away.
Well since she has powers, it makes sense. I suspect this is directly related to the story and the character of Jodie. Like, what if Jodie is immortal, so she can never experience what happens after we die?
I think the headline spoiled the game, So now that we all know of it i think the game will still be fun. Since theres a story to everything in the game.
Cool...David Cage is a visionary
