Ryse: Son of Rome might be the killer app that saves the Xbox | Gaming Trend

Gaming Trend: "Ryse: Son of Rome has sold me on Xbox One at launch. In the months leading up to the quagmire that Microsoft has gotten themselves into with their stance on used games, internet connection requirements, price point and my general lack of interest in their launch lineup, I was almost certain that I would not be buying an Xbox One anytime soon. Then I played Ryse: Son of Rome today at E3 and everything changed." (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

Press A with the right timing to save the Xbox!

Don't worry, it's optional!
ShugaCane  +   434d ago
Haha. lol. Seriously. From all the feedback, I'd rather say that Titanfall is shaping up to be the (prospective) killer ap.

I prefer KI and DR3 than Titanfall though.

I admit, Ryse doesn't good enough, the texture detail is awesome since it's using Cry3engine, but it lacks of aethestics and looks bland (not mention there's a lot of QTE's too)
Need4Game  +   434d ago
maybe a Killer App that Kill Xbox One.
ShugaCane  +   434d ago
@Kanzes

Yep, but to be really clear, I was saying that because of the things I've read from Xbox players. They seem to have really enjoyed Titanfall overall, but Ryse received some mixed reactions. It's good looking, but nothing more indeed. Typical of Crytek's recent productions.
abzdine  +   434d ago
Titanfall is coming to PC, and discussions are going to have it released on PS4 at some point. Remember Mass Effect?
it's EA we're talking about those guys see cash everywhere.
Mr_Nuts  +   434d ago
TitanFall looks nice but it's nothing special

Take a Sci Fi setting +
COD mechanics/gameplay +
Mechs +
Wall running +
Jetpacks

= TitanFall

It's nothing we haven't seen before, it's just what COD should of evolved into this gen. I can't believe it won those E3 awards though over WatchDogs, The Division, inFAMOUS SS and many others. It was just another typical FPS, without a single player

EDIT: Below

@Colzer01

Just an "upgrade"....you really havent been paying attention have you

Titanfall is not actually much different to Starhawk on ps3. People need to try starhawk its only 10$ now its underrated ps3 exclusive.

starchild  +   434d ago
@hammad the beast

Which we know most PS fanboys don't own, since you guys are always in PC articles bashing it.

The fact that it is on PC is only noteworthy to PC gamers like myself. To people that only own a PS4, it doesn't really mean anything. You still won't be able to play it.

Anyway, it's shameful to see an Xbox One article filled with fanboys from the other console just bashing Xbox One games.
3-4-5  +   434d ago
Yea Titanfall looks like what COD should have evolved into about 2 games ago.

COD fans can't really hate on it either because it's from their fave IP's creator and is basically and updated version of what they have come to love.

Titanfall could very well take gamers away from COD, along with killzone, BF4, Destiny and a few others.

COD isn't going to sell as well and be as dominate as it once was.

There are too many other good/fun options for FPS and other games that will take people away from the COD scene.

It will still sell 4+ million on each console, but I just think this is the beginning of the end for them unless they adjust.

Maybe 1-2 more COD games before it really loses all it's steam.

@gamertk41

Or maybe Xbox One fans are praising for no other reason than it being exclusive. I have a few friends who are getting an Xbox One and I asked them why, what are you actually interested in? They listed off multiconsole games or multiconsole and Halo. None of them listed Titanfall.

You know the persons an Xbox fanboy when they list only multiconsole titles when it comes to the games they want and you still can't talk them into switching. Even though the one friend actually likes the Infamous games. So he's interested in a PS4 game, not interested in Xbox One games, but wants to waste money on an Xbox One.
overrated44  +   434d ago
Titanfall looks SUPER impressive and I'll definitely play it. But I don't need an Xbox One to do so. I'll be playing it on PC.
Gamer1982  +   434d ago
Ryse looks full of quicktime presses and will hurt it badly in reviews IMO. Titanfall looks like it could help the console better especially as Xbox is known more for its shooters. However we all know its only console exclusive and that's only timed. Saying that I don't think theres any launch game on ps4 thats a system seller either. Those kind of games come along later in the consoles cycle.
kingfetish17  +   434d ago
Not a killer app for me with a screenshot like this:

http://www.gamerepublic.it/...

Damn, this Ryse screenshot looks like ass. Crytek has a lot of work to do. Look at that garbage looking water/foam at the front of the boat. Floating bodies, missing shadows, duplicated characters with long black hair, etc. Looks more like a 2008 current-gen title.

I'll be waiting til' around E3 2014 to purchase a next-gen console. Might get either one or both. This screenshot definitely isn't swaying me towards an Xbox One though. Hopefully Crytek polishes Ryse by the time of its release.
Enemy  +   434d ago
Ryse looks like a mess. A Kinect game from ground up, made to "look" hardcore with a controller. It's too late. The design is done, and thus the damage is done as well. Ryse is a Kinect game and that's all it'll ever be.
Syntax-Error  +   434d ago
The guy spoke the truth. I am sure MS lost a lot of followers with their policies at the beginning, but when they changed their stance on it, they righted the wrong. Just because fans decided to purchase the console after that shouldn't open them up to ridicule. Sony faboys bash anyone that chooses X1 over PS4 and it's ridiculous
Syntax-Error  +   433d ago
Gamer1982 - You sound like a trend follower. How is XBOX only known for it's shooters? What game came out on XBOX that was a shooter that didn't come out on PS? Halo and Gears? Not only did Sony make Resistance to go against Gears and KillZone to go against Halo, but those 2 franchises outsold Sony's by 3 times. You sound like a complete idiot with your comment
mewhy32  +   433d ago
Well there little doud that th ebox needs a killer ap to try and recover from what Don did to the Xbox brand. I mean the pr fiasco that was e3, really tarnished the xbox brand. many would say beyond repair. I don't think that it's beyond repair but I believe that it'll thake a while for the brand to recover. In the mean time PS4 is really pouring it on with great pr and killer exclusives. Xbone needs a killer ap or maybe a couple killer aps that will more the console after the diehard xboxers have bought up all the initial stock.
solidt12  +   433d ago
Titanfall looks nice but it won't be here for another year at least. They say 2014 spring but I doubt it. It's PC also and rumored to go on PS4 also. When respawn was asked if they would bring it to PS4 they replied they would like to have it everywhere. They also hired several PS4 developers in September 2010. I am sure they used them for something since this is there only game so far. They also said last year they had a game up and running on a PS4 dev kit and again they only have one game in existance.

Titanfall isn't even a full exclusive, the devs have already hinted at bringing it to other platforms eventually, so it wouldn't be XB1's killer app. As of now Dead Rising looks like the most promising exclusive, but it's likely to make it's way to other platforms eventually as well.

If Ryse weren't crap, it probably would eventually too.

Forza and KI so far are the only XB1 apps that could be guaranteed to remain exclusive, and could be counted as "Killer Apps". We all know the devs working on KI don't have a very good track record, so Forza is looking like the one at this point...

That said, PS4's launch lineup isn't much more interesting in my book. I've never been a big fan of the Killzone series. Knack looks like another repetitive beat-em-up, and Drive Club looks OK, but it's no GT or Forza.

My launch PS4 will likely be playing a lot of indies and such until the real heavy hitters start coming with the release of Second Son in Q1 2014.

It's so bad that another Sony team clearly took an inspiration from a cinematic sandbox FPS, with more organic elements and essentially the nanosuit in the form of a drone.

Another popular mobile developer's also taking inspiration from the on-the-fly gun customizations as well.

Yup. They're just graphics.
starchild  +   434d ago
Complete BS. All three of the Crysis games are good. All three of them were well received with scores between the 70s and 90s....which is well within the "good" range.

I enjoyed all three Crysis games.

Ryse's gameplay looks completely generic and unimaginative from what has been shown. It appears to recycle every tired and overused trope from WW2 FPS and add little else of merit.

Still, I have seen very few games of a comparable graphical fidelity. It looks utterly exceptional where raw visuals are concerned. CryTek must have some seriously smart dudes working on their engine technologies. Previous efforts would suggest, however, they they struggle to make an immersive or enjoyable game.
JaPo  +   434d ago
For those PS4 fanboy babies who disagreed, please provide evidence to the contrary. I even said it looks like a boring game, but it seems you've latched onto the fact I'm praising the graphics of a Xbox exclusive. Would you have done the same if I had praised the original Crysis? No, of course you wouldn't have. I've only ever owned PS3 and will not be getting an xbox one. This site is honestly embarrassing. I hope to God the majority of the most vocal posters have either learning difficulties or are under 12-years old. Otherwise there is no excuse.

@Mr_Nuts
There's a distinct difference between not liking a product and completely dismissing anything it does. Which there are alot of people one here who do that.

The people who take every chance they get to bash and downplay any innovation they're bringing. The people who want it to be another PS4.

There are people who offer constructive criticism of the system. Then there are the people who wish the system fails so miserably that Xbox fades away. Who pretend Microsoft is really damaging gaming as a whole.

There are alot of posters like that around. The people who claim this generation already over. You'd think, after going back and forth with these people, that the Xbox were made by monkeys being paid by bananas.

I'm not saying you are, cause seeing your past posts you've never come off that way. But there are plenty of people who are fanboys to an extreme...that's out of hand.

@NUTS That's because the Sony fans in everywhere still keep bashing MS, even after MS already listened to consumer to remove DRM, and showed a lot of AAA exclusives. They even kicked Don Mattrick!

But guess what, even after all of that, Sony's immature fanboy keep bashing them to keep in check that they made a right decision to choose their product.

I'm not saying ALL of Sony's fanboy are immature and hateful, there's still a lot of fanboy that really can 'talk' some senses. Not just bashing MS around without searching the actual fact.

You've never played a God of War game before have you? You only HAVE to do them to finish boss fights, sex mini-games or rarely during platforming/set-piece moments. Around 95% of the games are QTE free and they aren't even annoying like the majority of other games that use them poorly.

Ha, I've said this same thing before. If the XB1 is so bad and they're not going to get, why bother with commenting on it on every article? It would be like if you owned an Aston Martin and went to Kia forums to rag on it. The only thing that makes sense is they don't actually believe it's as bad as they claim.

I plan on getting Ryse at some point when I pick up a One but severely doubt its going to save anything. It is, for most I believe, just something extra to enjoy and to be honest many may have reservations about it. I do myself but am hopefully optimistic about it at least.

DR3 looks "better" to me although a little saddened by some of the changes. I can overlook it though as looks good if different. DR3 is most likely to see a port though between the two.

Titanfall though is likely going to be what "saves" the Xbox One as yes it comes to PC too but so does every CoD and it can't compete sales wise and doubt Titanfall will differ too much in that regard. I think TF will probably sell better than CoD on PC though in part as new IP and less of the same old routine. Its likely to be one of the biggest sellers anyways.

I still think PS has the lead and although Xbox doesn't necessarily need to be saved it might not be as successful as the 360. As long as both are enjoyable though I could personally care less which wins. I would prefer neither needing to be saved though as if it gets weak means less money to put back into new games.

Both look to be going strong for so early in the game though so kind of early for anyone to call saving even a necessity. Still, don't think its a completely even playing field either--but what is.

I have my ps4 on preorder and probably will get xbox one down the road since I already have all three consoles and both handhelds. But for those who say titanfall is just cod with mechs, that's the reason it has a chance to be a killer app! Cod sells because of it's accessibility and fast paced addictive gameplay no matter what your opinion of it is. Titanfall is my only reason I'm even considering getting the xbox down the road.

These screen shots are in game released by Crytek. The graphics and shadow detail approaching hi end pc quality.

I'd bet on Titanfall. If it's as fast and addictive without the blatant trolling like quick scoping and lag comp....then I can see it doing well along with the Xbone.

As for Ryse....gtfo. This game was universally panned at E3. Instead of completely retooling the game, they left it completely obvious that it was once a Kinect title with all of those QTE's. Add that to the fact that it's just another Crytek game....pretty and boring.

I know this for a fact if ryse was a ps4 exclusive they its.looked at would be totally different
PFFT  +   434d ago
Yep, it be the best damn game since GOW(<-even though this game sucks). The Sony Fanboys would be praising it even if the game was nothing but QTE.

lol, if God of War sucks then 99.9% of video games ever released are total dog shit.

Just because you're upset that some people aren't impressed by Ryse doesn't mean you have to slag off a legendary, hugely popular, beloved and critically acclaimed franchise. Just ignore people who love to hate on a certain platforms exclusive titles.

Legendary......really....? LMFAO!! Sure it is.
Supermax  +   434d ago
Put ryse on hardcore level and the qte is gone need memory to complete the combos.
JBSleek  +   434d ago
Ryse get's criticized for having buttons you press in succession but other games such as GOW or Batman aren't? Okay.
tubers  +   434d ago
Nah.

N4G just rats on it mostly because it's a CryTek game.

show of hands....how many here would right now copy all their email and social stuff and send it to the US Gov? Anyone? No?

Because it don't matter which system is game focused or has perceived better launch line up....only two of the three won't send your info to servers that share without warrants to the US gov.

You can disagree....but your doing so because your immature. Your playing the fanboy war....that's pointless.

I'd rather gamers unite and focus on what rights they feel should be protected.

I disagree with this shit because you fools think the government can't get your information if you get a PS4.

this article could hold some weight. If you go to xbox's youtube page and look at the E3 uploads, ryse is the only one that is close to a million views(about 5,000 views short of a million) seems as if it's getting the most attention out of all the x1's games for some reason.

Edit: well halo is a little close too (700,000 views)

Ryse? Really? Now, listen the graphics are know where near bad, but they aren't amazing. It also looks so linear. And the quick time events are the main part of the gameplay. In other words, you have no control over your combat choices. Maybe they have different levels without as many QTE's but if they don't, Xbox fans are in for a very repetitive game. Might as well call it Ryse of the QTE's.

I love coming into articles on occasion and seeing a Sony fan commenting on a guy he clearly hasn't heard anything about except for what buzz articles titles have told him, makes me all warm and fuzzy inside :)
EXVirtual  +   434d ago
Huh?
Fireseed  +   434d ago
You do know how the combat system and combat choices work right? Alright well basically combat wise it feels almost exactly like Batman: Arkham Asylum except when you wear down enemies to the point of death you can either quick execute them with X which just chops off their head or something without breaking combat flow, or you have the option to hit B and it will execute everyone in the surrounding area who's worn down enough. It was actually pretty awesome at E3 to wear down a group of 5 guys and press B and watch as you dance through them all.

And as for the linearity, it expands throughout the game as you go from foot soldier to general. I was given the example that in the level I played at E3 you could command a small battalion (I.e with the phalanx) and eventually you would be commanding whole armies. I was given the example of "Imagine if you were to control a single soldier in Rome: Total War, but keep the army commanding abilities"

Then again I know this because I attended E3 and have been following the interviews. Give me a bit more insight than someone who just reads N4G titles like "Hurr DURR Ryse Is QTE: The Game Hurr"

Considering that no one had anything good to say at E3 about this game how can this tit even go there?
