Call Of Duty meets Heavy Rain: David Cage to make 'emotional war game'

Okay. This is a big 'un. CVG has just finished a chinwag with Heavy Rain auteur David Cage - and discovered that the French designer is plotting to turn the war genre on its head with a new project.

that quote with that name and avatar? Mismatch at best, at worst... BLASPHEMY! ;)

FantasyStar2549d ago (Edited 2549d ago )

Yes War has changed....

Did it?

Tommykrem2549d ago (Edited 2549d ago )

Look guys, Fallout doesn't think war has changed because it's still the same concept. People fight because they're values contradict. While in Metal Gear an economy has been built up around war that is so important that war is no longer about fighting for a goal, but for keeping an economy alive. So they're fighting for a common goal, unlike in Fallout where they're still fighthing for different goals! Two different game universes, two different situations. Just because Bulletstorm devs can't cope with that doesn't mean we can't!

Nice explanation if I have to say so myself... :)

malandra2549d ago

what the hell is a chinwag?

anyway, let's hope he moves on with Horizon first, with have plenty of war games and from what he's saying he probably never played Metal Gear

It's hilarious that the PS3 has more shooters than the box does. XD

eagles19902549d ago

It's also funny that PS3 has more games than the 360

Istanbull2549d ago

Why do yousay "War never changes" and then have a name like Iroquois Pliskin from MGS2?

If you're a MGS fan, you would know that it is "War has CHANGED"

Darkfocus2549d ago

he was clearly making a duty calls reference not fallout....

captain-obvious2549d ago

if there is any one that can do it

Inside_out2548d ago

Later when nobody wants to buy fps war games anymore, the dumb haters will blame Activision and not clowns like this guy and

Hope he works with some teams who have been involved in making war games. There's a massive line he will be crossing going that route, a line that is very harsh to live up to for developers.

BkaY2549d ago

i pictured a war game with HR visuals and for bonus...

facial animation like LA Noire (hope i spelled it right) ============= super mega epic win....


Ravenor2548d ago


Heavy Rain looks the way it does because you're squished into a box during gameplay. If you noticed the larger areas are quite void of detail.

It's very unlikely to get the same level of detail, unless we're fighting inside the whole time.

Blad3star2549d ago

Its called Home Front David.

Call of Duty, Call of Duty, Call of Duty...

This is worse than the N64/Ps1 era when EVERY platformer was labeled a "mario clone" and every shooter a "DOOM clone"

He NEVER mentioned COD, CrapVG did, saying "potentially BLAH BLAH BLAG"

Hell yes! More Cage games is what the world needs. HR was my GOTY of '10.

theonlylolking2549d ago

He makes very good games and heavy rain IS still very good and emotional. Cant wait to see what he does with a title like this.

NYC_Gamer2549d ago

his shooter would need to be multi to have any impact

PirateThom2549d ago

Explain. No, please, I'm dying to hear you thought process on this.

NYC_Gamer2549d ago (Edited 2549d ago )

what good is making a deep shooter if its only limited to one won't reach as many gamers as should.

because many studios are paid to keep titles exclusive

PirateThom2549d ago

That's not really a reasoning though.

Why limit anything to any console?

karl2549d ago

because it can look sooooo much better!! that is..

they could make it on pc aswell though. i would be ok with that...

jizzyjones2549d ago

It needs to be good to have an impact, Heavy Rain was outstanding an that wasn't muti.

Cheetos2549d ago (Edited 2549d ago )

I don't think it needs to be multi to make an impact but it will probably sell more if it was multi.

Christopher2549d ago

To have _any_ impact? That's a fairly massive declaration.

So, no exclusive title has had an impact?

Rage_S902549d ago

uncharted had a huge impact on the industry and wasn't exclusive what about ocarina of time or shadow of the colossus you comment is invalid

RBdrift2547d ago

A war game with more of a story? OK.... Im listening....

CoLD FiRE2549d ago

No no no no! Leave all the stupid emotions out of my shooter. No EMO please.

buckley2549d ago

This is exactly the kind of shot in the arm the FPS genre needs. Storytelling from an accomplished adventure game creator. I really hope this works out.
