Uh...Haven't I Played This Game Before?

GameBlurb writes, "If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then I have to say 505 Games did a pretty good job with this. Then again, maybe this a secret sequel to Platinum Game’s awesome shooter." (Deep Black, PS3, Vanquish, Xbox 360)

nice find lol but deep black such a unknown game i tried to find some gameplay on youtube no luck, but saw some videos with pictures. It looks like some underwater third person game with swimming and stuff so totally different game.

I remember seeing a clip of Deep Black, if I'm not mistaken I think the game got canned. It was an underwater shooting game, and you could dive into giant air bubbles and turn the physics back to normal then back into the ocean. It looked interesting back then.

Edit

As a matter of fact it was an article on n4g a while back that had a bunch of games that got canceled, and I think that's where I saw the gameplay.

Edit #2

I found the game, but I don't know if these are the same games or not, but it was called Deep Rift (maybe they changed it to or from Deep Black), but here's the vidicle, along with all the other games I was talking about. Hopefully they all get another chance at life.

So I guess we'll see then if it's the same thing.

omg.. 505 games is so cheap, they can't even design their own cover art. >:l

Thieves!! i'm emailing SEGA right now directly to tell 'em about it.. nah, not really.. I don't even know how to do that. Maybe through their support email but then, they'd just send me some automated BS.. lol

Either way, they're both generic characters.

Oh well Vanquish was fun though.

How original /s

I have never heard of this game until now, I wonder what other stuff they copied from Vanquish.
Parapraxis  +   1360d ago

Thank you for posting this article to remind me :)

I love Vanquish but it can be down right silly with it's typical Japanese stereotypes. The gruff giant bearded Marine dude and the fact that DARPA invented this power suit with jets packs so Sam can slide around the battlefield on his knees and ass. You would think that Jet packs would be better suited for I dunno, flying maybe?
mricecreamman  +   1360d ago
is deep space a real game or a photoshop cover lol?
Kiroe  +   1360d ago
Oh, it's real alright. Check out the amazon product page:

Here's a comparison picture of Halo 2, Vanquish, and Deep Black:

Haha! Man developers sure like the butt slide!
The_Nameless_One  +   1359d ago
I'm still unwilling to pay $60 for Vanquish. Good friend of mine told me he went through the game is less then 5 hours. I would be ok paying that much if it had good MP but at this rate I would go with a no. Japanese developers still having problem excepting this whole online phenomenon. The only Japanese developer that got it right is From Software. Their concept for the online functionality for Demon's Souls is the most original this generation.
SoSLy  +   1359d ago
how about Modnation racers? Heavy Rain? Alan Wake? LBP? if Demon's Souls is the most original uve played then u havent been playing alot of games my friend.
The_Nameless_One  +   1359d ago
Have you read what I said? ONLINE FUNCTIONALITY! not the IP.
xVeZx  +   1359d ago
i never heard of deep black until now....

Ceo at 505 games

"Lets rip off the Vanquish slide, also we can get some stupid gamers buying our game by mistake if we rip off Master Chief suit then we can get more notoriety by ripping off the Dead Space neon blue therefore if our game totally sucks then we should generate huge sales numbers from confused gamers thinking our box art is a Dead Space Vanquish Halo combo pack".
Ratchet510  +   1359d ago
looks cool, but i prefer vanquish even though it just 4-5 hours.
KaiokenKid  +   1359d ago
Ive never even heard of Deep Black
Dellis  +   1359d ago
The character better be black
Kuzo  +   1359d ago
Are we seriously comparing box art now? Well in that case I'll go with Vanquish FTW ;)
Axecution  +   1359d ago
Apparently Deep Black comes out on May 17, 2011.
