"cinematic", I'm starting to hate that word.

MestreRothN4G1622d ago

Fancy word to say "ultra linear".

Inzo1622d ago

And linear is a bad thing because?

monkeyDzoro1622d ago

People say linear as if linear is bad.
What would you want ? Open world ? Why ? Because openworld games are ALWAYS good ?

MestreRothN4G1622d ago (Edited 1622d ago )

SO defensive... Calm down. It can mean "ultra good" for you, fans of CoD.

(jk lol)

But answering your question, there's nothing wrong with it. I like movies too.

Dead space 3 was cinematic and look how awful that turn out to be..However uncharted2 is also cinematic and that is one of my favorite so it's kind of a double edge sword.

ajkula1622d ago

Me too, cinematic feels like short "Holywood style" which is the opposite to what i'm looking for, more open worlds/more impact on my own decisions/more exploration...

HeavenlySnipes1622d ago

Cinematic can refer to presentation, not necessarily game design

Uncharted's cinematic approach was that of an epic action movie with large set pieces and such

The term used here can be due to the filter they are using over the game (can't remember what its called) to make the game look like a film, and the cinematic black bars on the screen. All they've talked about is the presentation so far, I don't know why people are jumping to conclusions about the gameplay

I certainly hope you're NOT excited for Quantum Break, because... Nevermind.

I guess because The Order is "Cinematic" and clearly structured in a linear progression it's bad. Maybe it's because it's a PS4 exclusive these trolls (WishW3L and MestreRothN4G) are in qualms

when are we going to see gameplay ?

LOGICWINS1622d ago

I'm thinking very soon. It seems like Sony PLANNED to have footage for the VGAs but devs wanted a little more time. I see the game being out in the summer. Doubt they would release this at around the same time as UC4.

@ armadilo21 i dont know.. One thing i do know is that it looks like our avatars are talking to eachother in the same field. Which i find a little to entertaining.

ajkula1622d ago

That's what i was thinking!! Lol

CalebZachary84111622d ago

God, can't wait to see more footage of this beaut.

MidnytRain1622d ago

Doesn't this game have black borders at the top and bottom of the screen? I'm guessing the reason isn't purely for cinematic reasons.

CrossingEden1622d ago

I assume that the visual fidelity is preserved, but that's a shame what had to be sacrificed in order to bring the graphics to the highest fidelity possible. I would've preferred that we were able to explore. Also wouldn't be surprised if the cutscenes are "in-engine pre-rendered" like god of war 3, uncharted 3, FF13, to save space and disguise loading times.

DigitalRaptor1622d ago (Edited 1622d ago )

They've already confirmed the cutscenes are in-game, and there's no difference between them and gameplay in terms of fidelity.
