During a livestream to support Operation Supply Drop 2015 Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Character Concept Artist Richard Lyons and Environment Artist Andrew Maximov talked about their job at Naughty Dog and on the upcoming adventure of Nathan Drake.
Hopefully there's a QTE section in the game where Elena gives Drake a chest wax. @Rimeskeem 1. Everything in moderation. 2. It was obviously a joke. 3. Nice avatar.
I thought you hated QTE im just playing with you.
Yeah, he's just giving you a chest wax. Relax brother.
Well i'm assuming ur a chick gamer. I understand. Would be nice for you but not every guy though. Maybe they will give yall girl gamers some sort of tease.
"He realized that the team had modeled Drake’s hair, so he decided to rig it with wind, and just put it in the game. When the Director noticed it, he sent a mail to the entire company saying “hey, this is next gen.” LOL
I cant wait to see what Elena looks like but IMO a lot of people dont realize how fantastic the gameplay demo is.. and I mean the way it plays. Im sure what they are going to show at E3 will be some incredible stuff again and surprise everyone.
If the game takes place in Brazil think of the potential!
If you edit again I'll give you an agree so you are ahead haha!
Naughty Dog folks are absolute wizards , Technically they are the best developers in the industry right now . cannot wait to see uncharted 4 gameplay in action in E3 this year ..
Im not hating on anyone but its just pure honesty from my part. That Ryse video just beat u4 outright. But again thats a released game versus one still in dev.
How can you compare a game that is in pre-alpha photoge with a 3 weeks of work before they showed to us with a game that is at his best? I think that is embarasing to see how close they ar , imagine how it will be Uncharted in final form....
I don't think they're close at all. Why? Well, one word: foliage. U4 is simply doing much more. Ryse is just strong textures. (Not to mention that U4's standing water looks much, much better.)
Really doesn't take into account the linearity of Ryse vs. the wide open areas in the UC4 demo. There is absolutely zero vertical traversal in Ryse & you are being funneled through a narrow path. Haven't played Ryse but that section is more linear than even the first Uncharted title. UC4 is taking a sandbox approach w/ multiple potential paths & whip smart A.I. Not to mention what the others have said about UC4 being in pre-alpha. At the end of the day, Naughty Dog's games are beautiful because they run flawlessly, little to no screen tearing or texture pop-in, amazing level design & art direction, not to mention the seamless integration of story & world building. Hell even if Ryse was technically superior to UC4 on release it would still be absolutely slaughtered in the arenas that actually count for a sp story driven title, gameplay, story & creativity. Really bad comparison & I feel sorry for the person who had the free time on their hands to make a pointless video like that personally. All it did was make me want to go back & watch that UC4 demo in 1080p for the 5th time.
"Technically they are the best" how so ? crytek are technical masters realtime http://www.gamersyde.com/po... pre rendered http://media1.gameinformer.... on ps3 who are the wizards here :D?
Stop before you kill their e-boners
Im surprised you got disagrees. Crysis 3 is still up there in the graphics world. The faces in that game have not been beat yet in a any real time situation. I wouldnt say anyone is the best or better. Once those words are used, it warrants comparison just a few more from crytek http://i1.minus.com/ib276Ac... http://i3.minus.com/ibcl3AK... http://i3.minus.com/ibcHC4D... http://cdn3.sbnation.com/as... http://i.imgur.com/9BdDDLo.... http://www.gamepur.com/file... Once again not hating on anyone here. Just putting things straight.
No one here bought up Crytek but you. You can't deny that Naughty Dog are good at what they do, and trying to downplay that by bringing up Crytek just makes you look petty.
@The_Infected Implying Crytek make only good looking games and nothing else ? Crysis 2 and 3, despite having dumbed down gameplay and simulation, beat most other fps games when it came to gameplay, and are among the highest rated fps games of the time. Don't even get me started on Crysis 1 and Warhead. The simulation of a living breathing world and Oh Lord, the INTERACTION. Talk about good gameplay. Tons of game mechanics with a complex simulation and physics system that tied everything together. Even your suit modes. Unlike in Crysis 2, the modes were simply directly tied to the physics system. Run into a tree with maximum speed and you get hurt. Needless to say, Crysis 1 and Crysis Warhead are among the highest rated fps games of all time, even in terms of review scores. They play amazing. Crytek used to be masters of gameplay. That started to change with move to consoles. Not bashing consoles, but this is one franchise that did suffer in terms of gameplay (and graphics, to some extent). Less simulation, less physics, less complexity, less reactivity Crysis 3 seemed to be the lowest rated of the series. Ryse was bad... On the topic of Uncharted and Naughty Dog. I'm a PC gamer and everything... but NO ONE can deny their technical prowess when it comes to graphics Whatever said and done, Uncharted 4 will be one of the best looking games ever made. Sure PC will always have tons of advantages, but in some aspects, I can bet it will be THE best looking game, even compared to the best looking PC games. (eg. Characters and facial animation, certain effects, shadows)
@TRU3_GAM3R When crytek can make a better looking game than naughty dog on consoles, we can talk then ;-) crysis 3 in-game on 360 : http://www.gamersyde.com/po... the last of us in-game on ps3: http://www.behindgames.com/...
Exactly. I mean, Crytek may not be your favorite developer, but their technical prowess is unparralled. However, Naughty Dog is still amazing at the technical feat. Just look at the Uncharted games and TLOU on PS3, arguably the best looking games graphically on last-gen systems.
Console wise, and this goes for Ryse as well. They have far less vegetation and dynamic effects. Ryse is also lower resolution and extremely narrow with dozens of copy and pasted fights in the background, and it's a short game, which means graphics were easier to focus on. I understand it does look great but the faces are the only things that truly stand out for "next gen" consoles. The cutscenes were mostly prerendered as well, despite not being a huge graphics bump throughout, just because the game was choppy and they wanted the cutscenes to run smoother. Yes, Uncharted raised character detail during cutscenes in the past but, they were not prerendered. They already said they are using the same models throughout.
@ Army_of_Darkness - The fact you are comparing a multi plat to exclusive.. is laughable. They are both great companies. Who make pretty games. But, it shows more for Crytek developing a game on multiple systems. It's always easier to focus on one system, instead of three. Also - Comparing Ryse, a LAUNCH title to a two year post game still in progress. What are you people trying to prove? Idiotic comparison all around. Though, to have Ryse look that good as a launch title is incredible. Naughty Dog SHOULD make their game look a helluva lot better..
"Techinical" should take into account more than simply graphical fidelity. Mechanics, A.I., performance, art direction, open level design & most importantly for this instance, story. The one thing that is absolutely a foregone conclusion in regards to Crytek is that they are absolutely awful at story & making a game anything more than a showpiece for graphics cards. Naughty Dog are "technically the best" because they receive high marks for every category of games development, not just the single one. Look at the awards & metacritics for the last 3 ND games & align those w/ the last 3 Crytek games and there is absolutely no contest. There's a reason why it's pretty much common knowledge that ND are in the upper echelon w/ game devs w/ hardly any company at all even in the same vicinity.
@no way, You completely missed the point. Not gonna waste my time explaining.
No, Army_of_Darkness, I got the point. There's nothing to explain. Regardless, it's a stupid comparison. Your point is invalid.. 9 times outta 10, an exclusive will look better than a multi plat. Doesn't matter who the developers are of said games, typically.
Rockstar shits all over ND on a technical level
Rockstar and ND have very different styles. Can't really compare them.
Rockstar's best games take 5+ years to develop and cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Just imagine if ND had that time and resources. ND makes some of the best games in the industry in just 2 years.
Seriously, Rockstar pull off WAY more impressive technical feats. If you can't see that then well, there's little point even debating.
Very true. Sadly, all those disagrees are coming from the Sony fanboys that lurk around N4G. GTA 5 shatters any Naughty Dog game, including TLOU Remastered, at the technical level. I guarantee you if Rockstar was a first party studio under Sony, like Naughty Dog, people here would praise them far more. It's no doubt that Rockstar is superior to Naughty Dog on the technical level, and I'm more than happy to debate why.
Rockstar? More bugs than gameplay almost. We can blame the open world, but they're really no better than Bethesda on the technical side. Naughty Dog delivers a much smoother and less frustrating experience than other developers.
I wouldn't say that is so. Yes, GTAV is a marvel on "current gen" consoles, but I don't doubt ND couldn't deliver the same. It's just not their focus currently. The dufference is open world and lower graphics, albeit not by much.
"Technically they are the best devs in the industry right now." How can you say that, Uncharted 4 isn't even out yet. Surely you're not referring to The Last of Us, because at this point, many PS4 games surpassed it at the technical level. I love Naughty Dog, they're one of my favorite developers, but I feel like a lot of users on N4G sorta have a bias towards them. Nonetheless, I am pretty excited for Uncharted 4 and have high hopes for it.
you need to play more games... the video posted above just killed your comment.
Naughty Dog are Voodoo Shamans
Was playing TLOU on PS3 at a friend's house a couple of days ago. Can confirm ND are Voodoo Shamans.
Something they have never done hmmmmm suck at creating games?? Hehe love naughty dog
they must change its name from uncharted 4 thiefs end to uncharted 4 :chest hair
Even if you don't like their games (and your opinion is wrong) there's no denying they are the best developers from a technology standpoint in the industry.
There are things they are thinking about for a video game that I forgot happens in real life.
Naughty Dog the Best in the World. FACT.
Why are there so many articles on UC4...ND hype this game up to much to the point of me getting annoyed, just worry about the game....people still love it, gsus!
It is not ND fault...it is just some sites (Not naming any names) that keep posting every tweet, job listing, 10 articles out of a single interview to made it seems like there are tons of info on it. For example, this was a twitch TV interview by Naughty Dog and there was already another article from the same twitch TV interview made and posted a few hours ago: Naughty Dog All Hands on Deck on Uncharted 4; Devs Talk Technical Wizardry and Animation. I don't get why not post a single article about Naughty Dog on Twitch TV and be done with it? Instead we get redundant articles for the same link and that is why it seems like it was the developer's fault of forcing information down our throats, when it is not the case.
If you think its bad now, wait until a month prior to release when. There will be hourly uncharted articles
Best developers from a technology standpoint your nuts and give them way too much credit, I love last of us its the only reason I own a ps4 beside sony santa monica but there games are not ground breaking, uncharted is a tomb raider rip off that made it to the new gen before tr did and tlou story is what's makes it a masterpiece the ai and some other aspects are a joke, rockstar hands down look what they did with 325mb of ram last gen gtav and red dead ...
Besides sharing the theme of globe trotting adventure with supernatural elements tomb raider and uncharted were very different. Different gameplay and gunplay as well. The reboot and uncharted are a lot more alike than comparing the old games to uncharted.
UnCharted is a Tomb Raider rip off.... Christ, I suppose Tomb Raider is an Indiana Jones ripoff then. Really UnCharted was so advanced compared to any prior Tomb Raider release its not even funny. The new Tomb Raider is much more similar, but I would have to say that is much more of an UnCharted copycat than the other way around. If not for UC then there would likely not be any new Tomb Raider. UC still draws inspiration from Indiana Jones just as Tomb Raider does. To call it a ripoff is a wee much, though.
dont say that on this site your going to get banned you know sony fanboys run this site. i do think they are great but you are right people make it seems like they walk on water and their games are perfect. the ai for tlous was bad. they mostly shine when it comes to the story and character design.
Can't wait for more gameplay.
Okay, I see, ND is doing things no has done before in game development. Maybe they're cracking or maybe accessing the ACE units of the PS4 for further prowess.. FYI, the ACE stands for Asynchronous Computing Elements,meaning Ps4 might unleash an enormous prowess that Sony might can't handle.. OMG!! Stop ND Stop them! Just kidding amigos!
I only expect this kinds of stuff from ND and UC2 was the first game I pre ordered since I started gaming after I saw that E3 demo my mind was already made.
still ps1 and ps2 the best..that wonderful pixels.. hmmm nyamnyamnyam.
Wait someone said uncharted is a tomb rider rip off lol lol dose that mean Halo is a unreal rip off or silent hill resident evil or fk it nd are awesome they had admitted in the past they were inspired by tomb raider nd are the main reason tomb raider bk ffs. Pt will inspire a team to Make a game and il play it too
They are all excellent devs. Some tell a better story. GTA is a sandbox game, and the original crysis was. Crysis3 is an excellent looking title, but I wouldn't say it's better looking then Uncharted or The last of us. GTA5 is also an excellent game, both gameplay wise and graphics. Character models are not the best though, but it looks good and runs well. RDR was also amazing looking and it's good to have many devs producing awesome gameplay and graphics.
Only from Dualshockers and Naughty Dog could you get an article about chest hair.
