Kotaku: You know, I didn't think about framerate or resolution once when I got to play The Order 1886 yesterday. What I did think was that it felt like playing through an old Cinemascope movie. With at least one very cool signature weapon.
lets hope not too old 0 :
Why not , still looks better than anything on your super duber PC either way..
Presumably it might be set in 1886 although 1886 could also refer to something else. So that's probably what to refer to - along with all the Victorian steampunk-ish visuals- when assessing whether it's too old for you.
"Later on in the demo, I used the game's Blacksight power to slow down time and down enemies with deadly precision. A corollary of drinking a mysterious fluid called Blackwater, the ability was reminiscent of the Deadeye mechanic in Red Dead Redemption. " sweet
Sounds like it will be a really fun game. Looks fantastic too.. Can't wait!
Movie quality experience:)
Yep and fps definitely makes a difference. Same situation with TLoU Re, have seen some say they like the 30 fps some the 60. Same dilehma with the hobbit and its 48 fps. More isn't always better in every situation.
Never seen ANYTHING which didn't look better with more frames (as long as the frame rate is consistant).
I wouldn't make an analogy to Hobbit at 48 fps. The mean issue with that is for years we have seen movies at 24 fps. The issue with the Hobbit is more psychological. One of the major issues with the new frame-rate projection is how smooth it all looks. That’s because 48 FPS erases much of the blurring that occurs at 24 FPS. To perceive motion on a screen, our brains need a projection rate of at least fourteen frames per second and the higher the frame rate, the smoother the motion seems. Think about what some of the reaction to 48 FPS has been. The characters look too sharp? You're too aware of the makeup and the wrinkles? Some of the sets look like sets? Of course they do. You've created a format where the viewer sees more of what is actually there. Filmmakers will have to learn to make sets better and makeup better. That probably happened when color was introduced, too
The Hobbit looked like a soap opera. It was painful to watch.
@Mr Marvel Perhaps you´ve missed every Devil May Cry series cutscenes. Most of them would get MUCH MORE BETTER. This is the first example.
Sounds awesome, can't wait.
Except during QTE events.
No multiplayer means rend for 3 bucks over the weekend to play the story. Sony has only a few exclusives for the next 2 years and one of their biggest blockbuster doesnt support MP, its a shame.
"Sony has only a few exclusives for the next 2 years" lol Sure, little fella.
Typical dude bro
Whats so bad about multiplayer? You sony dudes are a anti social bunch. Why cant a great dev make a great sp n a great mp in one game? Mp games brong alot more to a game than sp. social interaction is fun
More than XB1 though, so...
It having no online experience was a shame. Other than that i think the game looks very good graphically and the setting appeals to me. I love its set in an alternative Earth with monsters and creatures. Just waiting to see what people think of the gameplay?
So you mean to tell me you've seen 2015 and 2016's full line up of exclusive games for both systems? wow, simply amazing. Where was microsoft's xbox 360 during it's final 4 years? Answer: Getting smashed left, right and centre by Ps3 in terms of exclusives. So it's no surprise that the xbox one has slightly more retail exclusives to offer at the moment and in near future.
if you bring this argument up xdrones cover their ears and scream "lalalalaal"
It seems they've focused on the story more than the DudeBro Factor, shame really /s
CoD is waiting for you. Let us enjoy great experiences while you play that braindead dudebro shooter
Try harder kid.
48 Fps is awesome in the new film format, 5 yrs from it will be the norm and our brains will have moved on from the old 24fps.
I wouldn't count on it 48fps in movies isn't exactly getting rave reviews
Tell that to the people that filled their popcorn buckets with puke watching the Hobbit.
I really don´t wish another pretty face and a pretty narrative with a "meh" gameplay quality. We don´t need another Ryse.
The article indicates the bit of gameplay they played was very good. Did you not like red dead redemption?
why every game nowadays must be so Cinematic what about videogame being videogames? we all are losing the true meaning of Genuine Gaming Sadly...
There is no reason a game can't look great (or cinematic) and still have fantastic gameplay and narrative.
Sunset Overdrive on Xbox One is what you want. Or WiiU. With the PS4, Sony will mostly be building upon the great work of the PS3. However I wouldn't worry about The Order 1886 not being a videogame. From what I've seen so far, it has a linear, almost arcadey, quality to it, on top of which there are gorgeous details. Even Silent Hill-like in places. It will probably feel like a blast from the past in part. It's not trying to be huge, open world. It's more like a solid starting point in a series. So I do expect some sites will 'only' give it 8 out of 10 but I still think I'll be very satisified with the atmospheric feeling the game gives me above all. It looks a bit like Dishonoured if it was forced in to the relatively simpler shape of the corridor sections of Uncharted.
There are plenty of those. Wth are you on about.
This game will be epic. Day one!
IMO, the game-play shown looks lackluster. The gaming industry really needs to give the cinematic QTE's a break.I'm not seeing anything new and exciting other than pretty visuals. Instead of Santa Monica, Sony should have had Naughty Dog help Ready at Dawn with this Project. Unless the developer is hiding some secret-sauce game-play mechanic from the public, I think the game needs more time. The game isn't that far out (Feb 2015) and I've yet to be wowed. Journalist like Colin From IGN also expressed a similar concern. I'm a sucker for a good story, but why does it feel like I'll be disappointed February next year? Next-Gen Visuals yes, Next-Gen Game-play I beg to differ.
What interests me the most is the setting. It just has so much potential. But yeah I agree that they haven't really innovated in the gameplay department (so far). It's hard to tell how it plays just by looking at it so I'm really looking forward to seeing some reviews.
reading kotaku Feels Like walking Through an Old Movie
I'm still on the fence about this... They're not making it very clear just how much QTE will be used.
It's refreshing to hear there isn't multiplayer. Unless its something unique and different I'd rather them spend the resources on a rich single player experience. Not every game needs multiplayer, especially if its going to be the same as every other pitiful attempt lately just for the sake of it.
This sounds decent... unless they go down the Beyond Two Souls route. It was TOO MUCH like a movie. The more they seamlessly blend cutscenes with gameplay, the better. (get rid of the QTE's please, those are just lazy)
Its a system seller, everything titanfall wasnt.
Whatever. This game needs to impress if it wants my money.
People go to Kotaku for gaming advice? Hahaha Oh wait, you're serious. Let me laugh even harder! HAHAHAHAHAHA
I'll wait...then play...then decide :)
Sixty bucks is a lot for this movie.
3/10 lol. look at mr review over here on games not even out yet. Hey can you please review God Of War 5 for me please? I know it's not out for many years but I'm sure your insider info will make a great early review, oh and fallout 4 while your at it.
