Naughty Dog's Jonathan Cooper speaks out on animations in games and how animation isn't the focal point of a game. He also mentions shipping Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
Well the animations featured in the demo are pretty terrific for a pre alpha build, so I guess they're setting the bar pretty high. I'm sure they'll manage to bring the best out of every department, as they always do.
That was pre-alpha? The reveal gameplay? Damn, that's bloody impressive. I thought it was an early build, but not THAT early.
Watched an in depth analysis, and wholy shit, so much I missed at first watch. (granite I was at the PlayStation Experience watching a screen on stage), but that detail is insane. Water running over Nate's hair, then water dispersing as he punches the guy. And so much more, lets jst say my jaw dropped even more when I seen and noticed all the fine details.
Title is very misleading. His comment was in reference to animating female characters and is a retort against Ubisoft's claims about female assassins. The author then turns around and attempts to make it about Uncharted and graphics over ganeplay... basically saying that Uncharted looks to good to have good gameplay. Why can't we keep clear straightforward comments in context? That is a hell of a spin. Not best animations refers to the fact that Ubisoft is claiming females are too expensive to properly animate... which is straight bull.
No, you'll find the entire article is about animation, uncharted is only mentioned in the context of pondering whether the developer will adhere to his philosophies with Uncharted 4.
No the comments were specific about animating females. And specifically their movements. How does on get from character rigging to postulating about Uncharted's "shine graphics" diminishing gameplay? The logical connection isn't there. It is forced narrative produced by taking comments out of context. He is simply saying that ultra real/expensive animations aren't necessary to animate females.
Well it looked awesome at PlayStation Experience. I am beyond excited for it.
It's insane to realize the gameplay they showed was pre-alpha.
I said it before and I'll say it again...I cannot wait for this game.
"We’ll have to wait and see if his philosophies are present in Uncharted 4, we’d love to see if he practices what he preaches because it would be a shame if Uncharted 4 were to look the part in the graphics department, but suck in terms of gameplay." Firstly Jonathan Cooper is working on the animations. I think one can't blame him if the gameplay sucks in the end. His opinion that better animations do not necessarily make a better game is still respectable. Secondly I think its highly unlikely that Naughty Dog has forgotten everything they learned from Uncharted 1, 2, 3 and The last of Us and make the gameplay of Uncharted 4 suck. Some thinking before writing can seriously improve your articles quality. Otherwise why not make it a podcast and just talk about whats coming out of your mind?
I just watched the Alpha game-play footage again for the second time. This game is going to be truly amazing. The combat and animations look so much smoother than the last three games and they were great! I always live single player with this series, but if they can keep the formula of this and add an exciting multi-player then this will have me hooked for months. Man... This and MGSV have me soo excited for 2015 and this is just the beginning. Playstation - I love you.
In all fairness to Ubisoft. Women's breast physics can be quite complex at times ; D
why not strive for both? "Best" is subjective anyways.
