I don't want to watch it for spoilers... but I can't help myself - man I'm weak. But this game is looking like it's right up my alley. I can't wait :)

IDK how I feel about this game TBH. I usually really do enjoy these types of games, but this just seems a bit boring and more of a movie, which I get that it is aiming for that.

IDK, I guess for me it's the whole idea that it's a horror, mystery type of title and usually I'm not use to playing characters that are always displaying reactions for you.


Yea, I agree with that. It has a promising story, and the setting and such is deadspot on. I think the character here is just overdone. Yea I do get it, you would probably act like that in real life, but that is usually the focus of horror types of games, to provoke a reaction out of you, and not so much out of the character in the game. I'll wait to, but I don't really dig what I am seeing from these characters in this video

I think it looks good already and very promising, the characters could be a bit more "believeable" but the atmosphere is great. There is a lot of potential here, this could turn out very mediocre or very good with a creative take on the horror genre. I reserve my judgement for the moment but I'm keeping my eye on it.

Might be a good game but the girl you play is extremely annoying... l hope she is not the main protagonist!!!
DeadlyOreo  +   289d ago
Does anyone get an old school Resident Evil feel from the camera angles?
Way to go PS4! this gen is starting to look sweet. I remember when this was a crap PS move game I didn't care about, now it's looks like something I might get day 1.

They just didn't seem to make games like this last gen, it's good to be a gamer again. Haven't felt this way since PS2.

about time someone dose a teen horror type of game

ever wanted to shout at the characters while watching Halloween/Screen and change things, well this is what the game is all about.
ramiuk1  +   289d ago
the girl seems OTT with the acting imo.
her voice defo doesnt set the scene well either and her eyes are all over place like she tripping.
Is it wrong that I laughed all through this vid? I didn't find it to be particularly horrifying (for a horror game). I think the awkward motion inputs kill the mood. That and the cheap scare tactics.
BallsEye  +   289d ago
Not sure about this game...looks like an interactive movie with extremely slow controls and very typical story of few teenagers stuck together with a psycho (atleast that's what I can tell from this gameplay).
n-skyline  +   290d ago
I would argue too much of the game is revealed here, spoilers
Bloodborn  +   290d ago
It probably wouldn't matter which scene you pick to demonstrate, everything would contain some kind of spoilers in a game like this.
iDadio  +   289d ago
I'm going to pass on watching it for that very reason then, I dont know why but it looks like a game adaptation of the film 'Cabin in the woods'.
HighResHero  +   289d ago
Cabin in the Woods is a special movie.
Palitera  +   289d ago
I'm not watching the trailers for the game (spoilers), but I would just to point that Cabin in the Woods is a meta movie. The hidden meaning is what makes it different from the others.

As per the story itself, a group is hunted in a cabin in the woods, it is quite clique and not exactly what makes the Cabin in the Woods identity.

I don't know in English/remember the name of the movies who used this archetype, but Friday 13th and, specially, The Evil Dead are two notorious titles.

Now, if you're talking about the atmosphere or direction itself, that's another story and I shouldn't even be here.
Gatsu  +   290d ago
I'm afraid this game is gonna get too much hype and falls flat in the end. After watching that, I can say it looks good but reminds me of those countless horror movies with jump-scares or saw. I'm not sure is this supposed to be a scary game, but it don't seem to have the kind of scary feeling what I'm looking for. Like in some (older)RE,SH games or the recent PT are examples of what I mean.

But I guess need to wait and see more of it, reviews or maybe try myself.

Like I said in my comment above, looking at those games, those are the oens that are pushing more for the reaction out of the player and not so much forcing one on the in-game character. It's like, I saw this video and think it would be more scarier if the character didn't scream every 5 second before you even get a chance
Gatsu  +   290d ago
Yeah I agree :). Lets say games like RE, SH, Dead Space 1, Outlast, P.T. and some others, they do horror the way I like and enjoy the best. And don't have your character talking or screaming all the time.

Those games are kind of giving you a constant uneasy feeling that you ain't safe, maybe with sounds,lights or music etc. Then keep building up the tension with eerie background sounds/voices, until you either have to take break or finally scaring crap outta you by showing some monster etc.

That's what I like in Horror games, as you said more reaction out of player.

I'm gonna get this game no matter what. The butterfly effect system is what's going to make this game replayable.
Inception  +   289d ago
Ok this looks more promising compare to the old build. Gameplay looks a lot like Heavy Rain and somehow remind me of Clock Tower 3 too.

Anyway, it would be cool if capcom/sony make a new Clock Tower with this kind of style.

I mean, Silent Hill make a comeback with Kojima x Del Toro, Fatal Frame V, and there's Mikami with Evil Within. So, it will be merrier if more classic survival horror make a comeback, right? ^^

So far I like what I'm seeing in this game. The atmosphere and the camera angles give it almost a old school Resident Evil kind of vibe. I also like the use of the DS4 features. The end of the video where he had to make the choice I thought was pretty cool. Personally I would have shot the girl, she was annoying anyway.
Nine_Thousaaandd  +   289d ago
This game is gonna sell like hotcakes! Over a thousand endings due to the "butterfly effect" features...people will be streaming this game like crazy! The acting seems really good too, and the graphics look pretty sharp as well.

To my understanding...everyone starts in the same area, but as the story branches out, everyone will have a different experience. And the camera angles which I think looks great, seem to have an ol' school Resident Evil vibe to it...without the gunplay!

I'm really looking foward to playing this game. I think it's gonna be a smash hit on PS4!
darx  +   289d ago
Hot cakes?! That's a stretch.
Nine_Thousaaandd  +   289d ago
Yeah, I'm stretching it quite a bit actually! But their horror game will offer a vast amount of replay value! This is the selling point of this game because no other horror game is offering this type of replay value.

The media along with many gamers around the world that enjoy horror games, seem pretty excited for this game...it does look promising! I'm looking foward to playing it, and the Twitch and Ustreams will be great too because there will be so many different paths taken during gameplay.
Scark92  +   289d ago
ObsCure + Heavy Rain, I love it.
Agent2009  +   289d ago
I'm sorry, but this game is going to be extremely mediocre, beginning from the cliche storyline, lack of real gameplay, to a lack of scary content. The only reason why people are hyped is: PS4 exclusive, horror (pseudo-horror), and realistic graphics (which aren't that decent in an artistic aspect). And the marketing crap about the hundreds of endings is, well, marketing crap. It won't make the game any more than average, trust me.

Better save your money for Outlast, Alien Isolation or even The Evil Within, or wait for the Silent Hills.

Most people can afford more than one game.
jetlian  +   289d ago
i agree, I dont know why people want to go back to 90s point and click style games. I thought it was tps/tpmelee, along the lines of alan wake.

I know for a fact im not getting this and last I heard its pg13 rating so it wont be that bad
MysticStrummer  +   289d ago
Playing a game like this isn't "going back" to anything. It's simply another type of gameplay. It's not a style of game that will come back in a big way but it's not bad to play from time to time. I like variety in my gaming. 3rd person shooter/melee games are nearly as played out as 1st person military shooters.

I know for a fact I am getting this and last I heard M ratings don't necessarily mean good games.
jetlian  +   289d ago
it is going back. In those times 3d was just showing up and the pre rendered backgrounds and placed cameras were away to get around 3d.

"It's not a style of game that will come back in a big way but it's not bad to play from time to time"

you say?! so walking dead, wolf among us, beyond two souls, heavy rain. hell people want RE to go back to fixed cameras.

this game had a teen rating at first I guess its now mature.

I like variety too, fps,tps,fighters,hack and slash,puzzles,open world, stealth,adventures etc. doesnt mean I want outdated mechanics in from any genre and point and click is an outdated rpg style

Throw a few F bombs in there and it will get a M rating. That's what Call of Duty does.
MysticStrummer  +   289d ago
I'm sorry, but your opinion isn't everyone's, trust me.

The game looks fun to me, and whether there are actually hundreds of endings or not there are obviously decisions which change things, which means replay value.
Clown_Syndr0me  +   289d ago
Whens this due out? Is it digital or physical?

What's up with all these slow boring story driven type of third person horror/detective type games all of a sudden. Lame!
jetlian  +   289d ago
the industry trying to be cinematic and more like hollywood. Starting to get on my nerves
Skankinruby  +   289d ago
Thats what you call lame? Because it requires half a brain to follow? Dont worry they release a new call of duty every couple years for guys just like you.
darx  +   289d ago
Why do you bring up COD? Probably played about an hours worth of COD in my lifetime. Never the less this game looks lame as hell!
sprinterboy  +   289d ago
I think people are missing the point, it's a 80,90s horror with teen bad acting and cheese fest, best horrors imo ever made compared to the CRAP horror films made today, this game is day 1 for me can't wait to hopefully finish the killer off properly rather than let him get bk up to kill me lol
brew  +   289d ago
The ending was hilarious. This game is bad in a good way - cheesy. I'm also wondering if they are going to go with a retail release (in the U.S.) ?

Is it just me, or is this article's thumbnail and "9 Minutes of The Order: 1886 - Gamescom 2014"'s thumbnail the only ones showing in the hottest news section? I'm getting errors on 90% of the thumbnails.
tommygunzII  +   288d ago
I'd play it.
Kingdomcome247  +   288d ago
I don't know, the dialogue was a bit of a cheesefest. I, felt like I was watching a 90's slasher flick in the vein of Scream or I Know What You Did Last Summer with a little of the more recent Texas Chainsaw Massacres mixed in. Then again after having just recently played the P.T. teaser just about anything else seems corny in comparison. I, like the little inventive ways, that devs are using the DS4 features. Turning the pages with the touchpad is a nice touch.
