...MGSV says hi

"talks about the features that will make the game appealing both to new players and fans of the original series"

Everytime a dev says that the game ends up being bad or average at best. You can't cater to two different audiences without ticking one of them off and we all know which audience is going to be ticked off the most...

And ACIV to some extent. They encourage you to meet targets without engaging in combat.... isn't that what stealth requires?
-Foxtrot  +   559d ago
I think the stealth in AC4 was none existent at times.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   559d ago
Having to casually walk from bush to bush does not count as stealth lol. AC4 is as much of a stealth game as Call Of Duty (obviously im exaggerating). But i was pretty non-existent.

Plus, the AI in AC4 is way too basic/dumb to give a challenge or make it even slightly enjoyable when taking a "stealthy" approach. They are pretty much programmed to be easily manipulated to walk in a straight line towards the bush you whistled from, or to be engaged in combat where they stare at you and wait their turn for you to one hit kill them. Lol.

Oh yeah, i forgot to add HOW YOU STILL CAN'T CROUCH.

On topic, i look forward to seeing more on Thief, still undecided about it.

Umm metal gear solid.....
Raf1k1  +   559d ago
Isn't MGS stealth action? This is meant to be much heavier on stealth to the point where full on combat is never a good idea. Other games like AC and MGS let you get away with being seen quite easily so I can see where he's coming from.
LAWSON72  +   558d ago
Its hardly action usually combat is difficult though MGS4 was pretty easy due to improved shooting mechanics so MGS GZ will most likely be similar unless you play hard difficulty. The game is no cover shooter or run and gun game.

Ass creed u can stealth. Out

KingKelloggTheWH  +   559d ago
Does Thief have regenerating health?

The only recent "stealth" title that hasnt was TLOU, and I Hate regenrating health.
curtis92  +   559d ago
it does not.
KingKelloggTheWH  +   559d ago
Well I am definitely interested now.
SaturdayNightBeaver  +   559d ago
just play on hardest , 1st playtrough.. and you will be ok i think.. thats how i do with the games lately
zep  +   559d ago

Hellsvacancy  +   559d ago
Good man
Bathyj  +   559d ago
Zep for President.
RedSoakedSponge  +   559d ago
i loved it too! i would be in fear of them removing all the awesome gore though. cant have a tenchu without gore!
Summons75  +   559d ago
<3 I would love a new Tenchu game. I loved challenging friends to see how fast we could complete levels without getting caught.
Bathyj  +   559d ago
Would make a killer co op game, no pun intended.

We used to use the cheat code for the devs debug menu in Tenchu 1 and add an extra player.

Poison Rice. BEST WEAPON EVER !

Tenchu Z is my whole reson for getting a 360.
Bathyj  +   559d ago
Its certainly the reason I kept it for so long. I finally traded it towards my PS4 last year and it was sad saying goodbye to Tenchu Z
Inception  +   559d ago
Zep, you're the man. If they make a new Tenchu or remake Tenchu 1-3 than day 1 for me!

Oh god, i missed the day when i poisoned the enemies with onigiri, killed them from below the bridge, or just grappling from one rooftop to another.
SaturdayNightBeaver  +   559d ago
was it activision? if yes, then i would just forget about it

Cmiiw, but the last info i heard that Acti already gave the ip back to Acquire / From Software.
Salooh  +   558d ago
Don't remind me T_T
Bathyj  +   559d ago
Maybe there are others but they were too sneaky for us to notice.

EDIT
Well you know what they say.
Be careful when you see Indians.
Be VERY careful when you DONT see Indians.

you just blew my mind
Roccetarius  +   559d ago
Not exactly the brightest light for Stealth gaming either.
SlapHappyJesus  +   559d ago
We'll know once the game drops. I am optimistic for the game, though I am certainly not going to be pre-ordering, even if I can save a decent amount over at Greenman at the moment.
JohnnyTower  +   559d ago
Steam has it for $45 on preorder. Im so tempted!!!!!
SlapHappyJesus  +   559d ago
You can actually get it for just over $30, if you wish, considering you have the code Greenman is offering through e-mail.
That's the deal I was commenting on before, actually.
Summons75  +   559d ago
Metal Gear? I don't really count Assassin's Creed, it's not really very stealthy as they use to be since well, the first one.
sonicsidewinder  +   559d ago
Another "stealth game" designed for people who don't like stealth games more like.
Jyndal  +   559d ago
What?!
Thief is the one and only stealth game I know of in which if you are noticed, you're most likely dead.

MGS has lots of guns and combat maneuvers you can utilize if noticed.

Tenchu was basically a ninja simulator, so killing was to be expected.

Thief is stealth gameplay in it's purest form.
KillerPwned  +   559d ago
MGS V you dingus
TheXgamerLive  +   559d ago
No. MGS is not a true stealth game.
Theif is stealth only as the only weapons arent weapons but more tools. Similar to the original Splinter Cell.
The objectives cannot be completed without being mainly in stealth mode. If you dont have patience then this game isnt for you.
Watch some youtube footage from Thief III deadly shadows on pc or Xbox. It's top 5 fav game of all time IMO.
Im just sad they changed Garretts voice.

You can finish the game in MGS without killing one person or alarm anyone. If that's not stealth i don't know what is. It simply offer other awesome ways when you get bored of stealth or suck at it or you can combine them(The way i do it but mostly stealth).

I will buy Thief day one but it's not in the level of MGSV graphically and in story wise. As for gameplay both have their own good features..

Im really hoping this game doesnt fail. I am a huge fan of these types of games, and would love a really fun stealth game. Hopefully its awesome!
iRobotGaming  +   559d ago
Metal Gear Solid looks pretty Stealth to me.
Austacker  +   559d ago
I've rolled the dice on this one and pre-ordered and pre-paid for the game.

I've been a very long time fan of this franchise and seen it pass through several hands.

The E3 demo had real promise, but clearly needed a little polish.

But in this area of big action FPS games, racing and sports, a stealth game of this calibre is a nice deviation.

I'm willing to give this one a shot.
CheexInk  +   559d ago
If you're on PC, you could be playing The Dark Mod. Despite it's name it's a standalone game that is freely available.
Meltic  +   558d ago
They upgraded the AI. THANK GOD.
