first Ingame screenshots from the upcoming PS3 exclusive third person shooter Quantum Theory Edit: more screenshots now up at IGN http://media.ps3.ign.com/media/142/14288075/imgs_1.html
Japanese Gears of War. Take that as you will.
I see this as more of a Ninja Gaiden-esque action game, only instead of swords and Ninja acrobatics, you get a gun. I know because it's a TPS that it will instantly be compared to Gears, but that's just not what I gather from this whole thing. Like I said in the forums, however, I am probably in the minority on this train of thought.
Lol, I thought that too when I first saw it. It does look interesting though.
These guys kill me like Marcus and Dom from Gears with all that bulky body armor on but no head gear. They're better off running around in a loincloth like Tarzan.
IGN has a trailer for it. It looks like you guys are all right. It is a Gears/Ninja Guidian with a little Devil May cry rolled in. lol. Still it is to early to knock it but, now PS3 owners have their own Gears and NG 2 games, it just comes packed as one game... JK I am a PS3 owner and looking forward to this. http://media.ps3.ign.com/me...
So true man. Makes me thing of UT3 as well, 2 foot thick armor over your chest, yet no head protection whatsoever. Bubbles for all!
def but the graphics are pretty okish
The second one is awesome!
Because of a few aliasing issues (the back of the character's bulky armour), I think that shot is actually in-game as well, which is cool. Like Gears, it'll look a lot better in motion.
Not only that, but even in the trailer, if you look at some parts where he moves (After the first time he covers and then jumps out, and then when he is on top of that flying thingy) you get to feel as if its the game and not a cut scene... Cause you kinda feel that the camera is loose... Thats my opinion honestly... Man im really excited to see what Sony has in store!
Id say 100% ingame because you can clearly see the players crosshair.
Looks really bad if you ask me...
PS3 is really cleaning house right now. UNSTOPPABLE.
Because your an idiot.
lol. Ya he is a bit of an idiot
Looks better than Gears if u ask me
LOL at queers It looks like DOGPOO in real images People these are the ral images and not BULLSHOTS of queers 1.1 http://www.1up.com/do/slide... http://www.1up.com/do/slide... LOL at queers 2 a washed out game ,looks more like a PS2 game
The guy listed the genre as gears of war clone hahaha.
Impressive graphics, exaggerated animation, gung-ho characters and design, dark, moody settings, cover system and weapons.....important parts of Gears that can be easily copied and improved upon. I wish Insomniac had done this with Resistance 2 and GG with Killzone 2 - both of which will be great games. Then we'll be saying Gears what? Enough's enough. Copy, modify, adapt and improve. bring on the clones and damn awesome shooters.
...maybe. It does seem a bit like gears but i doubt Techmo would just up and make a clone of gears. O.o....what am i saying they're making a clone of ninja gaiden why wouldn't they make a clone of gears.
It's difficult to get excited about this game, we've seen this before a zillion times. Just when you thought that games were heading in the right direction, with MGS4 and Heavy Rain putting a large emphasis on story, LBP innovating and providing something fresh, we're ending up next year to have games like: Quantum Theory Killzone 2 Tekken 6 Skate 2 etc. All the same as we've seen before. The industry isn't progressing - they're still making shooters for kids.
Not every game has to push the industry forward, they don't have to be revolutionary. Look at some of the most popular games recently, CoD4, Halo3, GTA, Mario Galaxy etc etc, what have they done to revolutionize their genres, nothing. Doesn't mean people cant enjoy them. And yes, they're still making shooters for kids because they sell well. Supply and demand. That's the core of business. Not taking huge risks trying something that 9 times out of 10 doesn't pan out the way you hoped. Whether it's a fun, enjoyable experience/game is what's important, not whether it's revolutionary or not. Even revolutionary games like LBP or Heavy Rain have to be enjoyable, otherwise your not going to want to play it.
Yeah I understand there's probably always going to be a market for that type of game, but I really want to see the day when games can stand up to literature and cinema as an artform. David Cage was right when he said that games of today are like porn movies - just little bits of story to tie the action together. Many games start with an intersesting premise, then ruin it with generic characters, a bland story, terrible script writing and sub-par voice acting. Even MGS4, which you could say is one of the leaders in game storytelling, doesn't exactly have an awesome script or voice actors. Games have a long way to go - and apart from Heavy Rain there is nothing that is going in that direction.
Oh I agree. I love games that dare to treed outside of their genres comfort zone. But I also enjoy a mindless shoot fest. Developers have to cater for everyone but more importantly, turn a profit. When your investing tens of millions in a project you have to be sure of a return, trying to forge something revolutionary is a risk. Will it be excepted? will people understand what you've tried to create? etc. Where as make a steriod enhanced shooter with kick ass visuals takes a small thought process and almost always delievers on a decent return. Until the majority of gamers are craving for a fix similar to yours I'm afraid your out of luck. Sure there will be a few titles here and there to take the gamble, but sales drive devlopment, whats popular is what will be made and sadly that tends to be the same thing that was popular last year with only improvement to the visuals.
PS3 exclusive, but for how long.....
i believe sony is publishing this one. sony looses the ones they have a hand shake or standard agreement with.
If thats ingame then this game looks hot. Much better then that KZ2 crap and up there with Gears 2.
You can't be serious...-____- Please don't use Killzone 2 and Gears 2 in one sentence. It...doesn't sound right.
You just did, so why shouldn't he? Lol...
emo's don't use guns they use sharp blades..........game looks lame
Why in gods name are all these shooters being made for PS3? PLEASE for the love of all that is good in this world GIVE US RPG's. Sony and Microsoft have truly switched places this gen (payouts or not) in that MS has all the RPG's and Sony has all the shooters!? Perhaps this is Sony trying to embrace western gaming. Guess what, it isnt working. Now give us some fu#@ng RPGs!
...So clearly Motorstorm 2, Wipeout HD, White Knight Chronicles, Valkyria Chronicles, God of War III, Gran Turismo 5 are all shooters. You don't even know half of what the game is about aside from it being a shooter and you're already claiming Sony and Microsoft switched sides. I'm sorry but I don't recall Sony using unfair tactics to crush the competition. More rpgs are coming for the PS3.
??????? valkyria chronicles, eternal sonata, motorstorm, lbp, motorstorm, the inside? demon's souls, white knight story? the silver lining is in the ps2 developers. atlus is still making ps2 games, persona 4 out this holiday. and is a HOME supporter. i expect sony to phase out the ps2 slowly moving ps2 developers over to the ps3. microsoft is shaking a check in front of some big companies to get into the franchises. sony is picking up every small developer with new ip's.
I think the lack of oxygen is starting to take away some of your reasoning abilities. Aside from Folklore, and the soon to be released Eternal Sonata, can you name a RELEASED RPG? White Knight Chronicles, Valkyria Chronicles, both look awesome, but they are not released yet (WKC is a 2009 release as it isnt even hitting Japan until December). I will be picking up Valkria in November. Gran Turismo is late 2009 (maybe 2010 at this rate), and from what I am reading God of War may be pushed to 2010 as well. Meanwhile the 360 has seen: Eternal Sonata, Infinite Undiscovery, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Tales of Vesperia, + Mass Effect Coming soon: Fable II, The Last Remnant (supposed to hit PS3 sometime, but no date), Star Ocean 4 etc etc Need I go on? If you dont see the trend you are flat out blind. While not all of these are AAA titles, they ARE RPG's (something the PS3 is starved for). I know that MS paid good money to make this happen, but it does not change the fact that Sony is not working to correct it by ramping up internal production (something MS cannot sway). I have a firm grip on reality.
Then you know what? I'm not freaking out out. Your anger should be directed at the ones responsible for stealing every single thing they can get their hands on, not Sony. Like I've been saying for millions of times already, Sony cannot outbid Microsoft when it comes to games. That's why they're focusing on 1st party. You don't even know whether the games they'll mention will be rpgs or not. And I agree that Sony should at least get a 1st party studio to work on rpgs. You need to stop jumping to conclusions.
but shooters are fine too. They are a significant portion of game sales and shooters are the major hits on the 360. Looks like the Ps3 is on course to becoming the console for shooters. check. Now would the rest of the game genres please line up.
kz2 crap,lmao. You need to stop smoking herbs. KZ2 destroys gears 2. You know it does. Don't worry you can always jump out and play beyond.
A more fantasious build on the gears of war mechanic sounds like a nice change on a fun and proven gameplay. Even though i doubt they will perfect or equal the gameplay of gears of war it has a chance to hurt it in its weakest point "Story" then again this is tecmo we are speaking off which looking at past performances (mainly ninja gaiden) means it could be just as gears all flair no substance.
If Killzone 2 looks like crap then Halo 3 looks like what? :O
like a steaming pile of sh1t!
They should just drop the name Quantum Theory and call it Tears of War or something.
That's a name I have for a shooter game idea. Brutal, epic gung-ho warfare, quasi-realistic(eg you have to load bullets into a magazine, vehicles have to be refueled, fighters have to go back to base to refuel and rearm their weapons or have bot resupply units etc). Realism is the future of shooters. Damn, it would have been innovative for Killzone 2 to have done this(eg manually reloading with bullets, refuelling, rearming etc).
I'm glad this game is PS3 Exclusive, only because the PS3 deserve a game like this.
looks alot like Gears.....but the graphics do leave something to be desired....
Sony lies yet again!
the hell?????? i dont think sony even said if its in-game or not so how did they lie lol
happy gaming ;)
lol he's a Microsoft Fanboy. I think this game could become god, not sure yet but could become good. Hey didn't Sony have 11 announced titles to show?
The game looks mad - Graphics are sick and really suit that stylized CG Anime look. Reminds me a bit of vampire hunter d (movie) in those pictures
Looks sh!te, got 4/10 written all over it.
it will be interesting to see how it develops. But also let me say now that it will not be exclusive to PS3.
Gears of War meets Contra! oohh my...
The art style reminded me more of dmc than anything.... I dont see gears anything in those SS.
Will be anxiously waiting for gameplay videos. This is such a weird mix of TPS + cover system and futuristic fanatasy. Great new concept though.
ps3 owners bubble me up, the xboys are sucking all my lovely bubbles away.
ehhh the trailer seems a bit iffy to me, but i'll wait to see gameplay before deciding :/
