The Order: 1886 Won't Bore You With 45 Minutes of Shooting

If you hate those endless sections of shooting that litter first & third person shooters, rejoice: The Order 1886 will be more varied, according to Ready at Dawn's Ru Weerasuriya. (PS4, Ready At Dawn, Ru Weerasuriya, The Order: 1886)

I am glad to hear that because while I loved Bioshock, I loved the world and the exploration and characters. The shooting was solid, but I could have done without the game turning in shooting level after shooting level. The world was done so well I wanted to explore it and learn more about it. Instead it was here is the world, character, and story for 5 minutes. Now go and kill people for 30 minutes.

The game was very well done, but I expected more than just a shooter with a great story. I am not complaining about the shooting parts because it was fun, but that game could have been so much more.

Ditto, love period type games. Especially when devs can recreate the world as we only know it through books and articles, pictures and art and create an atmospheric game world.

Seems sorta horror-ish too, and I love me some horror games, especially with combat.

Seen a lot of hate for it being linear and stuff but we still don't know HOW linear. But some of my fav games I've played have been pretty linear. Open world & all the jazz that comes with it does not always equal a decent game.

Cool. Uncharted was guilty of this as well as bioshock.
AsimLeonheart  +   349d ago
I agree. As much as I like and appreciate games like Uncharted and the new Tomb Raider, I really got tired of all those infinite bad guys. How many henchmen can thugs like Eddy, Salim, Talbot and an island cult possibly have!? It got really boring and frustrating because of hours of shooting at a time.

The thing I'm hoping for most is an excellent, Naughty Dog quality storyline.

If I knew that Sucker Punch was capable of an excellent story, I'd be more excited about Second Son, but, I know the gameplay will be fantastic because playing Infamous is like crack. you want more and more.
WeAreLegion  +   349d ago
You don't think inFamous 1/2 had an excellent story? I loved that story!
360ICE  +   349d ago
I agree with WeAreLegion.
Sucker Punch has proven their storytelling capabilities with Sly and inFamous just as much as Naughty Dog has with Jak & Daxter and Uncharted, if not more.
Of course, The Last of Us is in a different league.

Infamous 1 had a good story because it had strong comic book sequences and kept reserved with the in-engine cut-scenes. The comic visuals were the identity of the inFamous story.

But then it took a turn for the Uncharted in inFamous 2 and became too dependent on the cut scenes. I just wish it could have stayed with its comic book roots because that's what tthey did best.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   349d ago
Yeah, The Last Of Us raised the bar on storytelling, but Sucker Punch was definetelly on the same level of Uncharted with InFamous... I would argue even a bit over it, but I love superhero stories and don't care so much about supernatural twists, so I'm probably a little biased there. Also, love the comic book style, here hoping they keep it.
Conzul  +   349d ago
Evil variation of infamous 2 was an excellent story. Cole actually became the beast he had been fighting for so long. Very tragic and well written. I was so surprised when I heard Nate Fox had based infamous 3 off of the good ending.

Don't get me wrong,I liked it, just thought the evil ending was better written.
ajkula  +   349d ago
Infamous didnt have the best grafix, but it's because everything else was so great!!!~
Sevir  +   349d ago
@Consul, the 3rd infamous was actually gonna be based off the Evil ending in Infamous 2, that was actually what was suppose to be canon to the series, but when the game shipped and trophy data started rolling in after people completed the game, they saw that the good ending was completed more, so they made a decision to use the good ending as canon
Tontus  +   349d ago
Naughty Dog haven't crafted a good story since the Jak and Daxter series.

What they do well is story-telling, a.k.a. the cinematography, character animation, amazing voice actors, great writing. The actual plot in all of the Uncharted games is absolute child-level rubbish. TLoU had a decent plot but it was very cliché.

I have faith that The Order 1886 will raise the bar for story-driven TPS games that TLoU set, it has a much more interesting premise, the weapons look very fun to use, the characters are mysterious & interesting, the visuals & animation are unbelievable... I just have a really good feeling about this game.
Razmossis  +   349d ago
Infamous has no story, it has a theme. Just finished infamous 2 today. I'm not even slightly interested in second son. However, I am massively interested in what naughty dog can do after The Last Of Us

If Destiny nails the online then they are some serious competition, I don't know how much The Devision is focusing on their story rather than their online component so we would have to wait and see but don't forget Titanfall either if that game is all what is being making out to be then it would be an interesting year to say the least.

Can't wait for 2014 !
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   349d ago
I don't see either Destiny or Titalfall being that remarkable to be named GOTY. Not saying they won't be great games, I believe they will, but I don't see anything so unique or focus enough on the story to make it minimally worth the title for me (repeating: FOR ME)... But, hey, I would love to be wrong on this one, the more great games the better.

Its a Sony exclusive so obviously its GOTY without seeing any actual in game footage, just like Beyond 2 souls was apparently a GOTY contender before it came out.

Not for Next gen..... It needs to go with the trend of being more open like The division, The Witcher 3, Watch dogs, Destiny and if rumours are true Halo 5.
Early last gen games were had big environments but then as years past it somehow got smaller, you would think it would be get bigger.

Scipted diven sequences needs to stop unless they can find interesting ways to make it fresh for the player each time he plays that level.

Why not concentrate on A.I. Give me 45 mins of constant shooting...but give me the best A.I in gaming so it feels fresh everytime I play it.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   349d ago
"t needs to go with the trend of being more open like The division, The Witcher 3, Watch dogs, Destiny and if rumours are true Halo 5. "

Listen, im the biggest open world fan there is....but we still need script driven cinematic games too. When done right they are brilliant, as long as we don't get too many like we do with FPS games. Variety is good.

No it doesn't. If I want to play an open world or more "open" game then I'll go play those games. What The Order needs to do it make sure it does what The Order does best, and not worry about other games. No one likes a me too game when they can go play the original source material for the same price.

So what exactly makes a next gen game to you @Dark11? Improving interactivity and immersion through cinematic quality sure does it for me.

Twignberries  +   349d ago
I think you're missing the point @Dark11.. You're making the cinematic quality of a game sound like it's a patented idea or some shit. It's the natural evolution of gaming. If you can't see that, then piss off to the video arcade and go play some rigid ass timewasters that haven't pushed the medium forward whatsoever. Inproving cinematic quality in gaming means the animators/artists are actually making an effort to improve things in gaming..
Dark11  +   349d ago
lol you're the one that should piss off to watch a movie .. some of us here actually want to PLAY a game .. what a joke.
MestreRothN4G  +   349d ago
Twignberries, actually you're the one missing the point here.

You're like those people saying "CoD is RPG because, you know, you play a role, so it is a role-playing game, amirite?"

Saying the game is cinematic refers to how linear and canned it is, how little freedom you have to decide your paths, playstyles, make decisions, explore etc. It refers to linearity and how the game gets close to a interactive movie.

It has its ups and downs. Almost any dev agree that telling a cohesive and tight storytelling is close to impossible on open worlds, that linearity is the way to go to strongly telling a story. Also, it is the easiest way to create tight set pieces, memorable events, which is what some players want. Not to mention the reduced headache when you're doing the engine...

Obviously everyone wants better graphics and animations, but these refers to how cinematic games' graphics are, not the gameplay, which is how the term is commonly used and specifically here.

Also, bad language much?

Loving the weapons, costumes and setting. Their take on steampunk is really nice, enough to be original and readily noticeable but not exagerate to the point it feels goofy (which is usually a problem with this kind of artstyle).

Bishop-br, Neo-Victorian would be a more fitting term. I don't think this would be classified as steam punk. The design so far is amazing though. It's my most anticipated game next year.

I stand corrected. I simply didn't though of a better term at the moment. Almost went with "cyberpunk" for a while, knowing it wasn't that, settled for steampunk as the best I could think of. Thanks for the correction.

But I believe what I said to be true for most stories that rely on a mostly historically coherent setting with pieces of tech that obviously don't belong there. They tend to look goofy when overdone (be it Steampunk, Neo-Victorian, Cyberpunk or whatever), but can look great and add a nice source of originality for the plot when you find the right balance.

Lots of shooting in games is boring only if the shooting itself is boring. If a game does it right then it's not a problem how much shooting there is. (half life 2, halo:CE) If they say there's hardly any shooting implying it's a good thing then that also implies the shooting is not as fun so they didn't put in a lot. Why don't they take out shooting for good if it puts the game down that much?

This game will be awesome btw just don't get the title.
