Ms. Aileen Vary, PR/Marketing Specialist at Tecmo, takes some time to answer and give some insight to a number questions from columist DaSolidProof about the well known, upcoming PS3 exclusive, Quantum Theory.
Agreed AAAE exclusives only possible on PS3.
But we haven't seen much, only some pictures and a CGI trailer. It looks decent. They made a lot of progress for only a year.
You speak the truth
Fo sho though i gotta admit being a mostly ps3 guy, i loved gears 1 and 2. I like the ideas behind Quantum theory with the melee and co op elements. I hope they nail this title with good action gameplay.
"6. D.S.P.: Some consumers are calling Quantum a Gears of War clone. How does the development team plan to separate Quantum from the Gears of War series to make it its own game."
awesome interview :)
Great Interview, The only question they missed is if there's gonna be a co op mode. Anyone know if theres co op to be implemented in this game?
That's a great question and one that should have been asked even though she may have asked the question circumvent her and towards the developers on that one. My one issue with this game is I'm hoping it wasn't conceived in haste. So it's pretty much confirmed that actual production started shortly b4 the announcement last year and I'm worried that there wasn't enough time to conceptualize a great story component to flow with the general gameplay. This game, though admittedly - by the developers - inspired by Gears, has to have something to really propel it into it's own forum without it coming off as a wannabe. It has obvious Final Fantasy over tonnes to it's art direction so I'm hoping it'll have the same in regards to it's story. Just don't know if 2yrs is enough to make this game stand on it's own merits properly but hey, it's over a year to go in development so I'm guessing we'll be seeing a bigger better picture of the game as time goes on and according to the Q&A, starting with TGS later this year :D
can't wait to hear more about this game. btw it changed back to Quantum Theory
Quantum Theory sounds epic. "Quantum" just sounds weird without the "Theory". It's like Jada Picket without Will--"Something is wrong here."
@Skyreno- Really? You thought the interview was awesome? I didn't see anything crazy that I didn't know before besides the name being changed back to "Quantum Theory" Anyways, Im happy PS3's getting more exclusives, whether Quantum Theory will be AAA is STILL in question since we've barely seen any gameplay(mezzo). However, from what Ive seen, Lost Planet 2 looks like a far more intriguing TPS. Am I the only one who saw that huge lizard boss?? WOW...
Lost Planet 2 looks far more intriguing. Am I the only one who saw that huge lizard boss?? MAN THAT WAS CRAZY!! deadreckoning666 this posting (gamerzone) is about quantum theory. i didnt read one sentence about lost planet 2 in the article.
Better than Gears, confirmed. Only on PS3!
oh it's the gears ripoff
Oh looks it's the new bot on the block. Gears took the cover system from Kill.Switch so you fail.
The basic mechanics in Gears of War pretty much "ripped off" PS2 classic Kill Switch. That's my two to your one. What other fanboy Bullsh*t can you muster up now, Zack?
how can you have a pic of zack and hate the playstation
Im comparing them because there both THIRD-PERSON SHOOTERS that are coming out on the PS3 around the same time. Uve never seen anyone make a comparison before? It's done quite often on this site with various consoles and games. U should try it one day :D @KnaveX- Im glad ur one of the few PS3 owners on this site that gives an HONEST opinion on an upcoming exclusive instead of blindly praising it just for the fact that its a "PS3 exclusive". I mean c'mon, Mezzo's statement was stupid and fanboyish.."AAA exclusives are ONLY possible on the PS3" Ummm...r u forgetting about Splinter Cell: Conviction or Mass Effect??
Gears has been VERY influential this generation.
I can't disagree with that because it obviously has seeing how many developers try to go the same bulked up hero route.
Every game copies the other,lets just get over it.
Ya... but games like Dante's Inferno take it too far. Quantum is a Gears rip, but at least the devs have put in an effort to put new elements where close combat can be DMC style.... Just cause you have a heavy male and a cover system (which ironically even Gears ripped) doesn't make it a rip-off... But to give the devs credit, at least they are saying that they have had their inspiration from Gears. Dante's Inferno is rippin off on a whole new level... The game basically took GOW3... Dumped down the graphics, changed a few enemies here and there (although copying the art style) and voila.... You get DI.. Heck, you even get orbs when you kill and there are 2 bars at the top left along with a counter which counts the Hits so far like GOW games (and that too it has the same FONT!!!!)..... I don't know the copyright clause or something, but I feel EA should be sued by Santa Monica studios.
this game looks ok, but i dont like every single enemy being "organic" shooting at the makes crap come out instead of blood, which is what turns me off about dantes inferno as well. I understand theyre 'plant-ish' but it looks pretty weak, also the flying beasts and such look out of place, there are other ways to incorporate fantasy into a title that arent adding these final fantasy like monsters there, i feel like I should Nero their ass instead of shooting them, but thats the only things i find bad, shooting looks solid, although I dont like the main gun, too spiky i believe. i do like their rifle though. I hope this game doesnt fail.
To me the game looks like a rental. Any multi not like Gears of Wars would be nice or if they support the game with DLc as big as fallout 3...
I'm not following this game at all. I'll just wait for some videos near launch and reviews and a possible demo and judge from there.
gears 2 OWNS this garbage game in all terms ps3boys. is rip-off of gears admit this ps3boys.
miis OWNS avatars in all terms 360boys. avatars is a rip-off of miis admit this 360boys.
so than why are you 2 bots doing here if you obviously don't like PS3 games ? you 2 are lame
This game looks so crap it looks exactly like Gears 2 which also looks crap with thousands of jaggies all over the place. The graphics looks like the best looking 360 game which is gears2. This game has to look as good as Uncharted 2 to qualify as quality PS3 game.
At E3, Tecmo said the game was running at 40% so it'll look way better than Gears 2 when it actually comes out. Right now, it looks like crap and the game might inevitably be crap if its only been in development for a little over a year. Still, we won't know anythg until the game actually comes out so anyone leaving comments like Quantum Theory> Gears 1 and 2 this early could go suck it. I mean c'mon, the fact that we're even comparing it to Gears just shows how successful the Gears franchise is, regardless of my personal problems with Gears 2.
It has been in development for only one year??? Even a sequel takes longer to develop in order to be impressive,let alone a new IP that is trying to be as great as Gears of War. Now I have more doubt about this title.
Seeing as they has stuff to actually show rather than just announcing the game at last ears TGS I would imagine that something was lost between this being a PR woman answering the questions and what has actually come from the dev team. 1 year couls easily just mean anything under two years really, imo. The new thing for me was the definite "yes" ro MP modes(as well as the flip flop over the name!)and the fact they're now using Art Nouveau to describe the artstyle-which was always my opinion and the biggest difference from Gears to me. At above-those comparing this to LP2; I don't see much of a comparison really as I think the main focus of LP2 will be the co-op(hope I'm wrong and the SP wil be just as strong but after Capcom ruining RE5 just to shoehorn co-op in I have my worries)while QT should be a more pure SP experience but both games have loads to prove, imo. LP2 HAS to make better use of the premise than the lacklustre first game and QT must have a great story n there if it's really going to work as if it dooesn't it'll be hard to get away from those comparisons to Gears and to form it's own niche. Still hopeful on both counts at this point but neither game has blown me away in any respect-LP2 looks great but patchy and GT is just too much of a mystery even now to say much with confidence though it's good to see Tecmo at least trying something new for them.
