During a video interview with AusGamers, animation lead on Prince of Persia, David Wilkinson reveals he's seen animation tests of Altair swimming!
How can you say you have yet to see PS3 outperform xbox when it has done it since, Uncharted and GT5:P. I know that can perhaps be debateable, but then we have games like MGS4, KZ2 and Heavy Rain. Those games are without doubt the most impressive games so far. (Even though KZ2 and HR isn't out yet).
Wow. That has got to be the most ignorant statements I have heard in a while. "but it doesn't matter if it has 8 cores simply because no matter what they do that power it's harnessing can never be extracted anyway." Yo my man it's obvious you have no idea, ABSOLUTELY NO idea, how a console works or operates. It's clear you don't know what the heck your talking about. "There's a lot of unused potential in 360 and next year for example we will see more and more games outstrip the oh so powerful PS3... also the PS3 is maxed out pretty much and I believe that they are going to have problems unless they make smaller games pushing it's potential." You even stated that you know they have 8 cores. Yet you say its maxed out? Knowing developers haven't really passed 4 or 5 of its cores? And how in the world does "make smaller games" push a console's potential? "You claim not to be a fanboy but making claims like that sure as he11 makes you look like one." You my friend, are one of the biggest fanboys I have seen on this site. I feel like you can be intelligent, but when you make ignorant comments like that, you look foolish. Stop playing for microsoft and play as a gamer.geez...
Assasins Creed 2 = Prince of Persia =P another past life?
Yeah, i hated the whole "instant damage/death" if you fall in water... really really lame!
i think lowcarb is just low in carbohydrates that's why his acting like a retarded fanboy... oh sorry, wrong reply..
lol, doubt it, and you just welcomed a flame war, sigh..
Sandbox games can be fitted in two discs. What usually takes up space is the events.(i.e.in disc1 you can still fully explore the world but when you reach a certain part in the story you need to change to disc 2.Like Shenmue1&2) EDIT:lol i just replied the wrong post.This was meant for post #4.xD
If it follows a similar format to AC1, each city could be stored on a disc with the middle world on disc 1. With how much time you spend in a city, I wouldn't have a problem switching out between them.
You're right to a certain extent - remember the mulit-disk final fantasies on PS1? You could explore the entire world on more than one of the disks but the things that happened were different. Not exactly sandbox but still open world to a certain extent.
an option for large sandbox gamees is that it can be installed on to the hard drive with a disk 2 and played with disk 1
But I thought that HD installs were a bad thing for a lot of people around here?
Barring the fact Microsoft have a console with no harddrive.
yh i guess people without the hard drive would probably have a hard time
how many Hdd space do we need or how many hdds for we to use in a long run? hmm??
360 man you hypocritical pos xbuttfan, wasn't it you and your entourage who said that installs was something bad and such? Well look at it now when your xsh!t 3sh!tty can only handle dvd-discs. Now your singing in another tone.
If you ask me, mandatory installs on a console is BS. Consoles are supposed to be quick to pick up and play, but a 10+ minute install the first time you play voids that notion. Sure, it's fine after the first time, but I don't see why it's even necessary. Consoles have always gotten by without it just fine.
at least he has the BALLS to change his mind. Something total fanboys cant do unless a game has gone multiplat to their console.
It's a new era, man. Installs are just something you have to accept about this generation of consoles. Waiting 5mins at the most for a game to install isn't that bad at all, pc gamers have been putting up with it for ages. Also, do you really think MGS4 would've been "fine" without the installs?
i hope thewy dont make it like one where they had you do the same mission over and over just with a new setting btw is TGS over? cause if it is t sucked
sackboy says it can fit but if they made it exlusive for the ps3 and use the cell propley it will be a lot bettter. sackboys thinks ur trying to start a flame war....
donkey kong just said what he's expected he was expecting to have a nice dissection(install the second disk,compression,etc...) instead of calling him a fanboy donkey kong loves his 360 and he says that he will get gears 2 day 1 ape says that he bought 360 in early 2006 and he's bough mostly 360 version of multiplats cause he loves achievements and love to compare his gamerscore with friends donkey kong says he sware that he didn't want to flame donkey kong said that he couldn't believe how n4g members just start flamewars out of something that could possibly happen
And if it was made exclusive for the 360 and took advantage of its specialised cpu and more powerful gpu it would be better. See i can spin as well. Also ape constantly saying you're getting a 360 game doesn't give your flamebait comments more credibility. How do we know you're getting it? Sony are evil. I once owned a minidisc player so i can say that. see what i mean.
all I can say is...OH MY GOD. "Also ape constantly saying you're getting a 360 game doesn't give your flamebait comments more credibility. " and "sony are evil" sony are evil,you just defined yourself,all I can say to you is take care for yourself,cause life is much worthy than 360 vs ps3 bla bla bla get a life get real. wake up from this endless nightmare of coures you'll find my words worthless,because you are worthless too wow just wow
Wow did you just miss the point. Ok listen. My sony are evil comment was followed with i owned a minidisc player so i can say that. I dont think sony are evil, well just as profit hungry as most big corporations. I was using your method of flaming by saying that because i have bought one of their products it gives the flamebait comment credibility and shows im no fanboy and being impartial. I thought if i did that you would see why you constantly putting "but im getting GoW2" after slating the 360 doesn't hide your bias and give your flaming any fact or credibility. But clearly waaaaaaaay over your head. Thats what happens when you only read the first part of a sentence and give in to your defence force mindset and respond with purely emotion and no common sense.
Sorry but Assassins Creed sucked ass. I am also having doubts about Prince Of Persia. The game should not be called "Prince of Persia", it should be called "Petty thief that makes cheesy one-liners of fantasy wonder-land"
Wait wait wait. Why would we be playing as Altair again? I dont see a reason story wise to do so.
It's an animation test, probably using the the same character models from AC. That doesn't mean AC2 will be Altair, as it obviously won't be.
Finally someone asked the right question. All fanboy BS aside, why would they be testing an Altair model? I kind of assumed his part of the story was done. They must be running tests using old models to save time or they're just calling the new guy Altair to keep things under wraps.
yall need to get a life, seriously, just enjoy a damn game it seems that no one wants to enjoy anything anymore, just argue about whats better then the other =/ anyways, i just hope AC2 is not repetitive as AC1....im excited for this game, the story was pretty awesome =) BTW: has anyone created an altair sackboy??
Hopefully they learn from their mistakes with the first game. Parkour + assassinations is a really fun combination, if they can manage to get rid of the repetitive nature.
I really enjoyed the first one and am eagerly anticipating the sequel. As for the other BS going on in the comments, just play the game, enjoy it and stop whining about the stuff you have zero control over. AC1 was repetititve but it was also a very good gameplay experience. The visuals were pretty good too. I am certain that the developers have learned a great deal from the first one and AC2 will make great improvements because of that.
you should just shut up !!! not cause you don't like that other peaple won't !!! prince of persia is a great game its just not for little kids like you !!
Wanna know something? I was a huge fan of The Sands of Time series on PS2. Sands of Time is one of the best games I have ever played. Warrior Within, while not as good as the first one had a great combat system and a good twist revealing Kaileena to be the Empress. I'm very sorry that my opinion forced you to go on a rampage, but I honestly do not like the style of this new Prince of Persia game. I mean seriously, are you happy that the Prince is coming out with stuff like "Lets hold hands"? And you say that Prince of Persia is not for little kids like me? Ummmm yeah so a 12 rated game is not meant for an 18 year old person like me? Man I think your the one thats the kid, I mean just look at your awful grammar. lol
Why the hell did they substitute Prince. Damn i mean the other one was loved by the fans this one seems like typical generical hero #234553223. I want my Prince back. :(
I wonder if there will be bonus MGS content? :) MGS had a bonus Altair costume. Maybe there will be a bonus Solid Eye that allows you to see where all your enemies are. :)
They definitely have a lot of improving to do for this game. In the first one you were god himself, with simple to execute god-like counters it did not matter if you were seen because you could just easily kill every guard that came after you without being touched once. Also the repetiveness really needs to be fixed, when a game is more repetetive then spiderman you know something has got to be done about it. I do however see the potential the game had to be great and hopefully the second one will be.
i see a news item about Assassins creed 2, i am very much interested as i loved the first one... i click comments to other people views on an AC2...and what do i get fanboy wars...more fanboy wars and even more fanboy wars... i think it is truly pathetic to be some of you ppl on this site, we are supposed to be talkig about the games, but NO! moronic, deprived and un-loved fools like ape007 spark massive console debates...were none are needed, ape007 it sucks to be you... i know [email protected] will probably disagree with this comment, well thats fine you know i'm right anyway, i wouldn't even care if you disagreed as i dont spend my life on N4G! but anyway, i'm off...
Use the ignore button... it's a lovely button :) You don't read anything from blind fanboys again.
I'm not welcoming any sandbox game on multiple discs. I have both consoles (ps3, 360) & I can imagine being hit by someone walking in AC (disc 2) to push me back to (disc 1). "If" it released on multiple discs on 360 I'll be buying the ps3 version.
360 fanboys are not use to hearing sandbox and multiple discs in 1 sentence.
I just hope they cut out the future crap, when i first played the first one i thaught it was go around in the old days and kill not be put in a machine that reads your genetics.
AC 2 should keep Altair as a main character. He was an awesome character and the last game didn't show him die maybe some reason the could show he became immortal because of the piece of Edin. More then 70% of the game revolved around Altair they can't just get ride of him. In my opinion I never thought AC was repetitive.
The game is probably taking a GTA route totally new Character/settings/story
I hope he's still involved in some way, Altiar is an awesome character. Although, thinking about, maybe they should get a new voice actor (this time, actually make him sound arabic ;)
assasin's creed was off the hook...i loved it but i do agree it got bit repetitive with those mini missions.
Well, since Assassin's Creed and GTA4 were not PS3 exclusives, they were crap. If they were PS3 exclusive, then they would be the best games of the planet. Who understands PS3 fanboys? If MGS4 and LBP were multiplatform, PS3 fanboys would say they were crap like the rest of the games. Clearly you can't take PS3 fanboys seriously. Why bother? Do like me, ignore them because they are clearly biased and don’t have valid opinions.
assasins creed period
did not compare to the shear scale of san andreas. it was short period
"everyone hates assassins creed" Actually no, played it on the PC, and liked the game. As for gta4... waiting for the PC version. I'm sure it will be a good game.
With the emo/ goth infestation of all footage so far, it is no longer Prince of "PERSIA". Ubi is probably full of emos or wotever so rename it "King-emo of Gothland". lol at their animation and magic(previous trailers) - so so fantasisingly exaggerated as if its an emo dreaming of doing gymnastic in wonderland. They're suppose to be in a middle of a fight! PS2s POP1 hit the spot with a nostalgic storyline. Art, music, and the prince himself being believably brave and aggressive. i brought pop2 and3 and hated them just because of the art theme and music.
you don't even know what emo is.. it has nothing to do with goth, or depressed teenagers. it was a 80s to early 90s hardcore punk subgenre.. but whatever, be ignorant.
Hopefully this won't suck as much as the first one. And hopefully it wont suck as much as the games I make, as I am a sad loser who secretly wants to have fleshy fun with Hideo Kojima.
XD N4G really turned insane
Altair swimming? I hope this means a patch for the first one. Master assassins should not be drowning the second they fall into water.
You do realize that RAGE is an open world game and spans across multiple disks, right?
title got me excited and all i get is prince of persia
opinions are like buttholes: everyone has one and they all stink. Now me, of course I have an opinion about which console is better or which one I prefer, but I find it ridiculous for me to expect everyone to feel the same way as me. So all I have to say is play games and have fun on your console(s) of choice and please, please, please everyone stop trying so very hard to change others opinions into having the same one as you. It is very immature and annoying. Cheerio...tootaloo and all that sort of thing...
Wait, hold on Hows this video got anything to do with Assassin's Creed 2. OMG, the person who made the title is stupid. So what if he has seen Altair swimming, that doesn't prove anything, it just proves that the original Assassin's Creed engine has animations for swimming but was probably not used in the final game.
Lol, as long as it's better than the first one. I hated the first one and traded it in with GTAIV for Uncharted and a PS2 game.
I'd like a second Assassin's Creed. I like exploring that world, and I didn't mind the mildly repetitive nature of the game. In all honesty, what game out there has no repetition? Shooters are nothing but repetition, turn-based strategy and RPG's are all repetition. Stealth-action is repetitive. The thing that stood out to me in Assassin's Creed was the story, which I really enjoyed. If the next one has the same production values as the first I'll get that, too.
I couldn't have said it any better. People condemn AC for its repetition yet praise GTA. I guess GTA doesn't have repetitive missions... Blind.
I liked the story too. They really did a lot of research into the mythology and stuff. Especially mayan and biblical mythology
Things I reckon they need to fix for this one: No more repetitive missions. No bugs and glitches. More combos There's more I know, I just can't think of any right now :P
Trolls are so hilarious.
this game was f*cking horrible. only played it cuz a buddy made me let him borrow Bioshock for it. so I played it for two days, which was hell, and said, take it the f*ck back. just another flop I called a year before it came out. I rule. ASS CREED SUCKS!
People actually play a 360 without a HD?? MS piss poor attemept to attract the casual gamer. I have a Wii with months of dust on it, last game played was ummm Smash Bros. Have a PS3 with yes 3 games, Uncharted, MGS4, and GT5: Prologue. I Have a 360 with over 45 games and is being played daily. I'm just pointing out that I own all three consoles, and yes they all have there great games, but I play my 360 more, plain and simple. Along with most of the gamer's I know. If AC2 is PS3 exclusive I will be very suprised.
@ last 85 comments open zone --> this is the poorest set of comments I've seen on N4G...
You should read the comments first before pulling a statement like that out of your ass......
Actually he's almost right All I see is hatred for the 360 and flame wars. Can we please talk about games without insulting consoles. This is just sad. It's as low as racism or lower.
