Killzone - Q&A Session with Guerrilla Games

KillzoneUnit.com has managed to set up a Q&A session with Sebastian "motherH" Downie of Guerrilla Games. They talk about the company and of Killzone. Pull up a chair and enjoy.

From the interview:

E3 is very near and the gaming world is anticipating news of Killzone PS3. What's the vibe like at GG as you all prepare? Stressed, excited?

Bit of everything. Excitement with an underlying: "OH MY GOD WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!" I am sure there are a hundred developers around the globe feeling the same way right now though. Everyone wants their game to play look and sound perfectly when the public first get to see it. If you are working on an AAA Next Gen beast of a game or something for mobile phones you want to make a good impression on people. And if you have the baggage that we have we have to give it that extra little bit. Hopefully it will all go brilliantly and we'll shut up even some of the most ardent critics.

Our readers would never forgive us if we didn't ask, but is there anything at all that you can tell us about the next Killzone title? (even if it's a 'no comment', haha)

Erm… hmmm… let me see. Well it has Online. I can't say anything about it though. There will be a Public Beta, but not till later in the year. It will be a FPS, but I guess you figured that out by now… Phew. There really is absolutely nothing I can actually talk about. Oh well. See you at E3!

Pretty much no matter what they do they won't be able to make a believer out of me, Killzone was not my kind of FPS, and its MP was really poor.

I think blizzard said it best.

"See the problem is all these companies are just trying to make a good single player with these really deep and complex systems, however that doesn't work real well in MP, thats why at its core Starcraft as always been a simple game."

Mark my words the prettiest and most complex game almost never wins

Everyone knows being a brainless space marine makes for better gameplay.

see what i did there guys its called sarcasm.......

Personally I'd rather have an amazing single player experience than a crappy single player experience but with good multiplayer. Multiplayer just doesn't do it for me in most games. Am I the only one who feels that way?

Watkins3821d ago

I'd have to say that games don't need multiplayer. I think it's a really good idea to make multiplayer games like Warhawk without any singleplayer, and then singleplayer games like Final Fantasy and Resident Evil, without any multiplayer.
That way the developers can focus on what's important and make the game they want to create.
I might think this way because I'm a single-player dude, don't know. But I would never give a great single player game a lower score because the multiplayer part isn't good.

Odion3821d ago

Everyone expect Violater brings up good points.

However FPS games are built upon having a multiplayer that is long lasting. Also i wasn't saying that singleplayer wasn't important i just don't think you need to have like complete destructable enviroments and photo realism to have a good game, If you have a really good story and can make it fun to play then thats whats important.

I am just sick of people saying, well why can't i blow up that tower there to kill him this isn't fun because i can't do this or that.

Its why I am not that excited by Fracture or Haze, Fracture sure you can make little mountians and walls using your gun, but really how much fun is that going to be?

how old are you? the comment area does come with spell check you know.

"Also i wasn't saying that singleplayer wasn't important i just don't think you need to have like complete destructable enviroments and photo realism to have a good game, If you have a really good story and can make it fun to play then thats whats important."

In this day and age games are pushing the envelope to come as close to reality, so when one game has destructible environments and another that is supposed to be an AAA title doesn't, people point and laugh.
The games you mention all show good promise and yet you say "but really how much fun is that going to be?"
When in truth none of us have played them, and even more none of them are finished so how could we possibly say they are fun or not?

KZ2 is going to be an amazing game mark my words (what other people can say it about other games and i can't?)
Single Player and Multi, I enjoy both especially when I'm good at it.

Odion3821d ago

What does my age have to do with anything? (I am 20) I decided to not get into a flameware with you and instead decided to have a civilized coversation with the other posters who replied with positive responces to the conversation.

If you'd like to get involved put your thoughts in, on any of the following topics.

1. The importance of SP over MP
2. Should companies focus more on one type like Warhawk and Bioshock.
3. How important is the technical look and feel to you over how the game sucks you in and how fun it is?

I will say this though guys, I am also more of a SP person myself MP is fun and its what you spend most of you time playing but the great thing about FPS's that so few people do is that they have the easiest way of sucking you into a world and making you feel like your there.

that in this day and age, things can be kept under such a tight lid. no word, no leaked images, no nothing. impressive, but it makes me sad. ;(
