Beowolf film of Robert Zemeckis will be adapted on PlayStation 3 by the developers of UbiSoft.
I honestly know nothing of this movie and/or story so its a little hard to get excited over this. My question is ...well is this a direct movie tie in game? Or is it just a game based off the movie? Ok one more... what the hell is Beowulf about anyway? LOL
Uh you can watch a trailer of it at IGN. Beowulf is one of the oldest stories around. Gewain and the green knight
man, it looked like a porno flick............
It's pretty good I think. Will be intresting to see what they do with it. Fighting that crazy monster will be pretty cool. Getting drunk with all the solders too. Ha good stuff.
So uhhh what's with the pic though?
The movie for this is a Christopher Lambert movie, and it's not that good of a movie to be even called B grade... but I still watched it! Come on it's Highlander guy!
So Ubisoft's PS3 exclusive is a movie game? Could be good, I guess.
Is a famous ancient story not a movie.
beowulf was suppose to put emphasis on the emotional side of the characters. I can't really say it'd be a good action game. Prove me wrong Ubisoft.
Uh here are some of their demos for Beowulf...and it was just a bad choice of pic.
That Patton one was great. George C Scott what a great actor :)
The sword practice one was a good showing of what it'll look like. Big sword slow movements but I'm sure it'll hurt when it lands
This might be big, I surely hope they do it well, Beowulf is a great story. Clearly these test clips are very early ones without the final shading etc.. but already kinda promising. Interesting to see how it evolves. At least for now it is exclusive for PS3 which is good.
Uh it's not exclusive. It's on 360 and PC. And if anyone says "PS3 lost another exclusive" when it is formally announced for all three platforms I'll kill ya I tell thee. It's PS3, 360 and PC. Write that down and remember it.
Deep, I'm not sure what neck of the woods you're from, but there
isn't a problem with the pic, its sweet and well sweet! Nice assets
in this game for surrrreeee!
that as it may be firewire, but the picture does not express the feeling of the piece.
see Deep, thats the problem with the internet. If "I could
feel that piece" I would have such a better understanding about the
piece! Piece of course being assets to the game, I think!
Ah ok, my bad, I just thought it would be exclusive because it shows up only as PS3 news.
This movie will not translate well into a game, it's not a 'fighting' or 'war' movie by any means. As someone else mentioned it was more of a drama and emphasized on the 'emotional' development of the characters.
sounds like their just trying to cash in on Gerard Butlers popularity.
Since when can't games work on emotions? Ever played ICO or Shadow of the Collossus? This is the way games are moving...they are coming into their creative zenith, and so they should.
This should work perfectly for a storytelling game with plenty of mythology in the story to work on. I mean you're fighting against a big beast with the knights! It should work very well IMO, and be quite touching.
PS. this game was announced about 1-2 years ago...was one I was keeping my eye on. I didn't even know there was going to be a film.
oh really there's going to be a new Beowulf movie?! Hmm well I guess I like the story and it will most likly be better than the last attempt at it.
If the game looks amazing, that's what matters. Doesnt matter if it was the best movie or not.
I would actually prefer that the game plays good rather than looks good. With such a classic and deep story, the gameplay potential is there, as well as the chance for great visuals.
We just got done reading the book in my English class and it was horrible, I couldn't understand a thing, and when the teacher explained it, it sucked.
So he kills Grendel, Momma Grendel, and a Dragon, woo-wheee, big deal for Beowulf, I want to murder that book.
Don't worry, mate, when you hit puberty and start using your brain, you'll be able to understand classic literature a bit more.
Hopefully, the movie will come out on Blu-ray Disc soon. Even better would be if it is packed in with the Collectors Edition of the game (Stranglehold).
quite interesteing. and of course there is the rumor of Haze being ps3 exclusive. ^^ this is turning up to be positive stuff. Gamers day got Ps fans hot under the collar and potential ps3 owners too... by the time all the heavy hitter games come out like uncharted and Killzone and MGS4... it will certainly make more devs drop more games down.. more exclusives is a good thing
You should read comments prior to posting....Deep already mentioned it was multi and Haze hasn't been officially announced PS3 exclusive yet, although its quite possible that could happen, even if its only a "timed" exclusive. We'll see, but the story of Beowulf is definitely an interesting one, I hope the game will be at least a worthy attempt to translate it into a videogame.
