Director of production at Destiny outlines the studio's hope for the game, despite "a lot of insecurity" around initial development
I just hope he means the H. G. Wells masterpiece, rather than that toxic pile of Tom Cruise drivel
I actually like the Tom Cruise remake. Its one that goes under radar for some reason.
then you will LOVE Edge of Tomorrow!
Sly, oh yeah. That one looks good. Blu Ray when its available for sure.
I did, it was like a cosmic Alice In Wonderland. Beautiful and tense stuff. Spielberg can't fail, don't listen to anyone else ;)
So... the goal is to be generic, overdesigned rubbish instead of a timeless classic? Well, I guess it's good to have a goal....
I took it as him saying he's not trying to crowbar the game into being a classic by abiding to old tropes and expectations, but rather going all James Cameron-experimental with it and firing in multiple directions to see what sticks. I mean, Avatar wasn't perfect - not by a long way - but you can't say it wasn't at least impactful, right?
...Avatar is the the movie that embraced told tropes and expectations. War of the Worlds was the wildly original story that kind of kicked off the entire science fiction genre.
How's film school?
I'd rather make a couple billion dollars than be admired by pretentious hipsters and "intellectuals" lol.
What? Sorry, that literally made me laugh out loud. You're a real idiot, aren't you?
You didn't seem to get Avatar did you??? By calling it generic you have fell for what they offered you, they purposely used the most relateable storyline ever told in order to manipulate Boys, Girls, Kids, White, Black, families, Friends...every kind of people because they can relate to what is being told. A film doesn't make nearly 3 billion dollars without the same bums hitting those seats 2 or 3 times each. It was genius and manipulative storytelling.
...Avatar made money because it was a spectacle movie. Like most big blockbusters these days. Audiences didn't drive to the theater to watch it because it was a compelling story, or because it had relatable or interesting characters--they went to see it because it was pretty. Which is what we gamers call "graphics-whoring."
right, I'm the idiot. When you're the one comparing a movie to a book.....
I don't know what he means by that... but I do know that Avatar was just a pretty color festival with a shallow overplayed plot... I hope destiny isn't like that.
War of the Worlds>>>Avatar.
War of the worlds is amazing tho ! Love that movie, not many movies give you the view of an average family going through an Alien invasion. We could all relate to it.
Yeh they definitely take risks lol , while Destiny will be great its really just a halo skin with more social features and some mmo elements. So No Bungie don't act like your creating a whole new experience.
Why would anyone make that comparison? It seems detrimental to what you want to achieve.
