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.
Will be one of the best games.
Mark my words...
I hope so, I like the setting a lot.
this looks really intersting. I hope that it isn't a Gears clone just in a different setting.
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.
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.
I hope so. I want this to be the game that makes me get a PS4.
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.
You don't think inFamous 1/2 had an excellent story? I loved that story!
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.
"If I knew that Sucker Punch was capable of an excellent story, I'd be more excited about Second Son" Stopped reading there.
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.
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.
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.
Infamous didnt have the best grafix, but it's because everything else was so great!!!~
@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
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.
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
I do not think that it is a clone.
after this game people will realize how talented read at dawn really are can't wait
Ur words are marked! I hope it's good also..
lets just hope it not another alien:colonial marines or something like that
Lol! "One" of the best. The Best will be many titles and next year. Technological graphical leaps ahead of specs. Post Marked
How can you know? Seriously, have you tried to game? Can you shed more light on the whole thing? Or are you just one of those who've jumped the hype train the moment they released the CGI trailer? I like to be an optimist and get amped for a game but this is just... EDIT: Apparently someone posted couple of in-game screenshots bellow. Damn, it does look good.
Hope so. Love me some TPS
I will be testing the destruction in game. Bang bang
I don't think destruction will be a focus in this game. But, I expect it to be decent nonetheless.
everything in the world is a softbody, which means destruction and interaction, so yeah i think its a focus
game of the next year
Could very well be possible. I have a lot of faith in this one for so many reasons.
That would be hard with Destiny, and The Division
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 !
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.
and impossible with X ,Witcher 3 and MGSV
With The Witcher 3, Dark Souls 2 and MGS Ground Zeroes coming next year? Doubt it.
GZ is not GoTY material. It's essentially a demo.
I doubt Ground zeros will be GoTY....especially if it takes place entirely on that Military Base....now Phantom Pain on the other hand will be different story. Right now my most anticipated games are Witcher 3 and Second Son
Everything that Kojima makes is GOTY material.
we are not in 2014 yet it is game of the year ?? how is this possible ?
haha no you are not nostradamus you are his master.
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. That being said i'm always looking foward to a new game by a capable developer. but i'll hold my judgement untill i see it.
I am seriously anticipating this game..
sounds too much like Uncharted.. Filmic, cinematic, script-driven third person shooter. Next-Gen is here folks.
" Filmic, cinematic, script-driven third person shooter." Which is a very good thing. Lol @ disagrees.
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.
"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.
@Spurg: It doesn't need to follow any trend. Every game designer should be free to make whatever type of game he wants. The diversity is what keeps me interessted in games.
@Spurg 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.
The Witcher 3, Uncharted 4, The Order, Telltale: GoT, AC5. 2014 is the year of the cinematic third person game. Nextgen is here indeed and I'm VERY excited!
You forgot Quantum Break
I also forgot Tomb Raider. Damn, so many games to play :-)
@LOGICWINS The Witcher has never been cinematic game even witcher 3 is open world.
Tomb Raider....... Did you really say that? better be 20-30$ tops....too early for Remakes/Remasters IMO
So what exactly makes a next gen game to you @Dark11? Improving interactivity and immersion through cinematic quality sure does it for me. And oh wait... the fact that The Last of Us/Uncharted has had such universal critical acclaim for this exact reason means something. But hang on... you know better right?
so you're saying because The Last of Us/Uncharted are good games .. every other game should be like that? lol .. how many cinematic game sony released? 7? 8? oh well , i guess i'm the only one who want something new from next-gen.
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..
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.
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?
Sounds like you haven't played many Sony games Dark.
Uncharted works though, it keeps you playing without boring you... cough killzone cough.
There's no such thing as "too much like Uncharted."
Give me XP for kills/skill plus leveling up, and I don't bother. :D
gameplay pics! http://images.gamersyde.com... http://images.gamersyde.com... http://images.gamersyde.com... http://images.gamersyde.com... we srsly need gameplay demo asap
Wtf... I had no idea it looked that good
In the latest beyond podcast colin says it looks even better when running (video)
Pretty sure he was quoting the developers there, he saw an old demo. Behind closed doors. But it should be amazing when we see it
Wowzers! thanks for those pics. I've Never seen the Order gameplay until those pics. Helpful.
God DAMN that 2nd screenshot looks nice....even from a still i can sense that the atmosphere in that scene is amazing. The lighting looks so dingy and moody.
