Ready At Dawn's CEO and founder Andrea Pessino on how stunned he was after the Uncharted 4 E3 Demo. Pessino states that only Naughty Dog can pull this off.
Gotta love the respect given :) Games like the order and from what I seen of uncharted 4 keep me feeling alive as a gamer when I pick up the controller and focus on the screen. With PlayStation being my area I can't wait to see the rest of this year /next year's games and future jaw dropping masterpieces. Haven't felt this proud of gaming in a long time like I do right now :') LFG!!!!
All PS4 first party games so far are visually stunning (from Killzone SF/ InFamous SS to The Order 1886/ DriveClub). I've no doubt Uncharted 4 will be the same.
you forgot Horizon, the animations were awesome
The Order wasn't even that bad, it was just short and pretty plain on the gameplay. For some reason it just didn't connect with gamers. But it told a decent story, it did leave me wanting to find out more of what happens. It can't end like that, Lady Igraine thinking Sir Galahad was a traitor when infact he was the only one who discovered the truth, that everything that order stands for was a total fraud. And does she like him? Why was she so aggressive to vote yes on sending him to the death penalty. Does she maybe think Sir Galahad was involved romantically with the leader of the rebellion who is also an attractive women. I just have so many questions, I would like to see that story continue.
Also just wait for God of war and you forgot Ratchet and clank Ps4 that game is CG
@ Lightning MR Bubbles... SPOILER ALERT??? I still have yet to complete the order thanks. Bloody idiot.
Add Ratchet & Clank as well
and this is just the beginning.
What continues to be my favorite thing about Uncharted is when Drake catches a gun in mid air.
Naughty Dog are at the next level. Every single game of their's oozes quality. I thought the first Uncharted was kind of boring, but maybe that's because I played it after Uncharted 2. Recently played TLOU. My word, what a game. I think TLOU is their best game, then Uncharted 2. TLOU is hands down one of the best games I've ever played.
for some reason, there is something about uncharted1 that made me play it over and over again but for uncharted 2 & 3 i only played it a few times on different difficulties. i think i like 2 a lot better but if i was to choose an uncharted game to replay i probably pick the 1st one over the others.
My favourite was the first one. I played it many time, and then when trophies were released, I ending up playing it many times again. I've enjoyed all of them, but the first one was the best for me.... although the game play might be a little frustrating now compared to TLOU.
I love Playstation because it has soo many great looking games, while all xbone games look last gen and unrealistic
Says a lot coming from Pessino. Although short 'The Order: 1886' was a graphical masterpiece. Kudos
Well there is a reason why some people call them naughty gods sometimes.
I liked the story of the Order, graphics were sweet and gun play was decent at times. But there wasn't enough going on and everything felt constrained. Always loved uncharted, but UC4 took it to another level.
It laid a good foundation for a good franchise that is different from other TPS like Uncharted. I really do hope they would continue as to be honest as much as I like Uncharted I do want some variety.
" there wasn't enough going on" exactly. More complexity, more simulation during gameplay. Learn from games like The Last Of Us, which is also linear and story focused, but not shallow in the least ! Gears Of War 4 seems to suffer from the same problem. Can't really tell though - maybe the gameplay will be more complex... The demo at e3 sucked so bad. Devs need to realize that COD and BF campaigns are not a good model anymore. If your campaign is like a Modern Military Shooter, it's probably not good. [SPOILERS] For a sequel, RAD need to be careful with the story. It was absolutely GRIPPING up until a certain a certain point, after which characters do inexplicably retarded things. You know, when Gallahad starts shooting down 100s of the people he is meant to protect, because... 'they spotted us' (what??? xD) and because "None of them are innocent" -the leader of the enemy faction, about the people you are working for. Basically, I think that the 'gallery shooter' nature of the levels compromised the believability of the story in certain sections. More than that though, I think it was rushed, especially the ending. Important story revelations did not have any time to breathe at the end. A character conveniently walks in at the right moment, quickly drops these huge story bombs, and then walks away. If they do make a sequel, hopefully they will have more time to focus on this, since they have the tech figured out. The Order was something special and unique from what I saw. A sequel could be incredible. As for the Uncharted 4 E3 demo, that was one of the most impressive things I've seen. Amazing stuff.
Yeah, that sequence is amazing, so much things happening at the same time. I think many dont understand how hard is to do that with so much quality. ND are simple out of this world and must be pushing the PS4 beyond its limits.
I guess we'll be saying different in a few years when ND pushes the PS4 even more:)
It was really impressive, finished the Sony conference with a golden key.
Respect my friend.
Would be so cool if they'd put the demo on the PSN store.. I WANNA PLAY IT SO BAD!!!!
I don't know why they don't do demos anymore. Are they afraid people will pick it apart and find glitches? Probably. Everything under a microscope now days. I'd still love this demo. I'd play it over and over like I did they metal gear solid 2 demo.
Indeed. PT proved a demo can still do wonders for a game
Bad PR for one, as stated. But the other reason is that in order to prevent such bad PR due to bugs/underdevloped features, they have to devote a large amount of time and effort when making a demo to ensure that it is good enough to be handed over to end-users. The way games are developed today, i.e. iteratively, there are just too many systems not implemented or reasonably completed until they are very close to release, and at that point the time/effort it would take to get a demo out is not a worthy investment. Episode Duscae did a good job of demonstrating the combat system, but alarmed a number of users because the visuals have not been optimized correctly yet. It has led to a certain amount of doubt about the title and the engine that runs it. I know it's not the same, but YouTube and gameplay walkthroughs have replaced demos in the eyes of developers. You can get a good feel for the finished product in that way, without them having to devote resources to making releasable products for free.
The demo would not work as a game. An extended demo was shown to journalists and they said they could not touch the controller and were forbidden to even ask questions. It's probably not ready for people to test the scripting and explore the alternate rout in the road segment.
I loved Order 1886!
Uncharted & The Last of US are the kings in bringing great movies to the console that we can actually be part of. Kudos to Naugthy Dog to make this magic happen in a fashion no one else has done before.
'bringing great movies to the console' nah, bringing great games to the console. :) I understand what you mean - movie like quality and attention to detail, but it's a very important thing that Naughty Dog understands they are not here to make a movie. That's why their campaigns are never shallow, artificial, unlike many others. They weave the gameplay right into the story and presentation so that it fits in perfectly !
Uncharted 4 and The Order both are stunning on it own way, both break the barrier of CGI realtime gameplay, the issue with the The order was the gameplay direction, it shoulded be more open. I hope RAD learn from their mistakes and just keep moving on, their game engine is flawless but the problem is the direction on how they use that engine.
Had the same impact on me that Uncharted 2 had back in e3 2009!
Yeah it does remind me of that train demo ND showed at E3 2009 as well.
You're right. Still get goosebumbs today when I pop up in U2 in my PS3 and watch that particular scene.
The whole time I was watching the uncharted demo, I kept thinking about RAD and saying to myself "Now THAT'S how you do Cinematic Gameplay!"
I don't think one can even compare both games. The Order was a good game for what it wanted to be.
Yeah ok... That's your opinion My take on it is that they are both clearly inspired by cinema, but Naughty Dog was (again) able to capture that cinematic feel without taking control from the user, which amounts to what looks like far more compelling gameplay. Naughty Dog has also time and time again demonstrated how to make something that it inherently linear, feel like it's free and open... Something that RAD didn't do, which is IMO to the Order's detriment... I bet if RAD did get a second swing at the Order, they'd be taking notes from ND.
That UC4 demo was amazing. I was laughing at the conversation between Sully and Nate when Nate was driving to get away from the armored car. I am hoping that Chloe will make appearance. I saw screenshot of Elena and she looks amazing.
True about Naughty Dog but he shouldn't be criticizing anyone. Him and his team should focus on stepping up their game(pun not intended). The Order 1886 was an example of his studio's laziness.
See RAD, just in case you're confused...what happened on screen was something called "gameplay" this feature is usually included to make a video game "something fun." Remember that for your obviously in the works sequel.
Much respect to Pessino! I was Stunned by the demo as well. While watching the demo I thought a few things. 1. Sully looks amazingly real. The Order 1886 has amazing looking character models/environments, but Uncharted 4's character models/environment, look even better " In my opinion " 2. The crowd of people, they look well detailed. 3. The animations are so fluid/Silky smooth.ND animators are Wizards. 4. The combat looks better than ever. Thanks to TLoU. 5. The Jeep chase/setpiec, Am I really seeing this? Damn Naughty Dog. This is brilliant. Clearly different routes available. 6. All of this is running flawlessly. The Order 1886 is Technical marvel. I've never seen a game look so gorgeous, until Uncharted 4 that is. Naughty Dog raises the bar with every game they make & Uncharted looks to be doing that on a grand scale. Also Major props to GG with Horizon. That looks Amazing as well.
The Uncharted 4 E3 demo is the reason why when Naughty Dog speaks at a game developers conference, all other developers are listening.
he shouldve said this before deciding to make the order he could of made something better instead of making a bland movie
