Inside Quantic Dream’s GDC tech demo, a couple of details hint that this could in fact become a full blown game.
I dont really care what there next game ia, Kara, Dave? im not bothered, i shall buy it like i hav all there other titles (unless they start makin crap games, that i dont think theyll do)
You should care what they've done with heavy rain was absolutely amazing and the next game they reveal will be epic.
I wouldn't say heavy rain was amazing. It was good but it was filled with plot holes and had a non existent replay value.
@deep_fried How can you say it has no replay value, it had 8 different endings ,nearly everything you did or spoke to in the game you could do differently which resulted in different outcomes. Heavy rain is a model for replay value.
FatGayandbald It may have had 8 different endings but that doesn't mean it was an attractive option to play it again. It's a game I enjoyed while I played but not a game that I would ever play again. The gameplay was really off putting.
c'mon wheres the rest of it :(
Whatever "Kara" is, the video we saw was brilliant and powerful. It left the viewer saying "wow" at the end. I would love to see something more come out of this.
deep_fried_bum_cake : Uh...what plot holes?
There were "some" little ones that get over-exaggerated but other than that, the main story does a great job of tying loose ends.
if it turns out to be action pack with top of the line story, romance, sex scene, and balls to the wall action count me in if not still count me
I really hope that it does turn out to be a game as the Kara character seemed to be really interesting and the concept is fantastic.
It's just a tech demo so a game is unlikely...
I hope their next project will actually be a video game, not an interactive movie. I refuse to pay over $30 for a game like theirs. Sorry.
Well... People pay over $30 for a movie, so why not an interactive movie full of creativity? It's sad to see that nobody knows what is a point and click/adventure game nowadays. Poor kids.
When that game was at full retail it was a ripoff. Anymore than $30 and Cod becomes more valuable.
I think blackhammer and Pekolie are sad.
Some people are willing to pay $30 for a movie. I certainly won't. I didn't say it wasn't creative. Heavy Rain was a pretty enjoyable experience, I am just hoping for a more compelling gameplay experience. And by the way, I fucking LOVE Indiana Jones/Fate of Atlantis, as well as The Day of the Tentacle. Couple of my all-time favorite games. This company's previous games haven't a whole lot to compare to those or any point-and-click adventure games.
Heavy Rain was awesome I dont care if you thought it was an interactive movie or not, as far as games this gen goes its clearly one of the better ones...
@blackhammer no need to apologize. You clearly dont have a concept of what a video game is.So if anything be sorry for that. edit. Yea I was expecting a rant or something to be honest seeing as to how your concept of what a video game is that of someone who would usually rant or hate. Then I was going to proceed to tell you that video games arent all suppose to be action packed or what ever other dumb reason you have for believing Heavy Rain isnt a game.
That's bait for some hate/rant that I refuse to give you. Sorry you feel that way.
Well its like I always said, HR is a game for smart people.
Heavy Rain = Press Any Button to continue the progress the game * 50
Aren't all games like that? Try not press the trigger to shoot in any shooter out there and see if you can complete them lmao some people just like to bich about things
he tried to sound smart but sounds stupid instead!
That reminded me of the old Black Ops video of a guy completing the first mission on Hardened difficulty without firing a shot except for the 2 scripted events... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Wow awesome info is true so tried of shooters even though I'm playing UC3,BF3.I love all types of games no matter what genre. There is nothing wrong with shooters but this genre gets the least amount of ground-breaking games.Their are some like UC2,Socom 1-2,MAG,& KZ2... Hopefully I can get Fiv5 and K.A.R.A. this gen ;)
This makes The Casting look like shit. The emotion that comes through is much much better to. Really hope this turns into more than a tech demo.
The Casting.... isn't that the Tech Demo that ultimately became Heavy Rain? Yeah... that woman in The Casting ended up being Lauren Winter. Kara will eventually become a full game.... of some sort.
I didn't care for Heavy Rain and its predictable story line (same for their characters) but I did like what I've seen of this. They definitely need to make this into a game considering that small demo had more emotion than all of Heavy Rain put together.
You are retard if you state that heavy rain was predictable or this demo had more emotion then entire heavy rain game. Seriously you sir are BIG RETARD!
I think you'd have to be a retard to think that Heavy Rain is unpredictable (even their poorly placed plotholes gave it away not to mention you can't really kill EVERYBODY which was another dead giveaway). I mean even the American boxart for the game gave away the ending and that pretty much made my theory solid so when the ending came it wasn't a shock or a mystery. My reaction at the end of the game was "I knew it..." and overall it was disappointing. Even Indigo Prophecy was better.
....Why do you people come here when you clearly have no interest in the makers or their past games?
BWAHAHAHAHA Predictable story line? You son, sound like someone who has never played HR but had a friend tell you what happened. Play the game first before giving an opion on it.
I really want something else like Heavy Rain, that game was crack! I bought that game along with 3 others but thats the game that I ended up playing all night! I was just hooked and I coudlnt stop playing!
Heavy Rain is one of the best games this gen, I can't wait to see what they do next.
cage has already said that this is *not* their next game.
the translation for the the japanese singing translation...IS COMPLETELY WRONG... i wonder what the person is doing? and i don't speak french or german, so i wonder if the translation have anything to with anything with what kara said... the singing had nothing to do with the COLOR YELLOW... nor have anything to do with burning the land. sakura sakura- which means cherry blossom the flower across the sky as far as you can see thats what she sang.
As a German native speaker and someone who had French in school for five years: The translation of both the German and the French texts are utterly wrong. I cannot imagine how the author got the translation so wrong, so my best guess is that this is a hoax post.
Came here to say the same thing. Kara is just singing the famous song Sakura, well known to Westerners (probably why QD used it).
Appearntly the translation for the german and the french was completely off too.. i wonder who wrote this article.. and where he came up such weird translations????/
Ah the more you try the more haters you get. No one ever questions all the plot holes. idiotic concepts and plots that sound like they have been written by an 8 year old. But as soon as anyone tries to tell a more complex story suddenly everyone is an English teacher and can see all the plot holes and everything that is wrong. Give David Cage a break for the love of all that is good. It is hard to make a complex story full of mystery and intrigue and able to fill every plot hole and inconsistency. Other people drag through the inane predictable plots of many games and come out saying 'that was the best story ever' but we have constantly listen to everything that David did wrong. I have listened to people groan on about how unbelievable UC2 was and going on about how did he get Elena back to the village while in the same breath telling me that Gears of War's story was better then UC2. Which just shows what people really know about good stories.
Anyone who comes out of any game ever thinking "that was the best story ever" is an idiot. Heavy Rain and Cage get picked on for story because that is the focus of the games. And he constantly claims to want to bring a higher standard of writing to games, so naturally people are going to focus more attention to the story and it's flaws. Sure most game's stories are shit but people expect that and ignore it for the most part, because it is only a small part of the game and so most games can be great while ignoring the story.
lol at people defending Heavy rain but trashing on Asura's Wrath even though both are pretty much interactive movies except Asura had some other gameplay. 60 bucks for a movie....yea, get lost. I enjoy my PS3 but never got heavy rain and even if i did, id go to youtube for it, lol.
Show me one person here who said anything about asuras wrath.heavy rain IS a game.a mighty fine one too.its a pity that a lot of youth whom this game wasn't intended for, think otherwise.
I dont understand either french or german, but i speak portuguese so i can kind of relate what she was saying in french; and it was basically the same initialization message she said in english. That japanese part, its completely wrong. That music is a japanese folk music and the word yellow (kiiro) is nowhere in the lyrics.
thats what i posted.. the sakura song was about cherry blossoms can be seen in the sky as far as the eye can see... I HAVE NO IDEA WHOEVER WROTE THIS ARTICLE GOT HIS TRANSLATION...
I speak German, and you are absolutely correct. She repeats a part of the initialization message in German. The French part, I'm almost 100% sure, she does the same. To sum this up: This article is full of BS.
True, the translations on that site are a joke. The German really translates to: "I am a third generation AX400-android, created to be your personal assistant and partner for intimate relations." How they made it to be: "Contemptuous and Junior athletes generally take a problem and Process it. I see a person you see a system, that it seems" is beyond me. While I don't speak any French, the first part in French is exactly the same.
Yup, the German part also had me going "wtf, this is not even close to what she is saying." This really lowers the credibility of ANYTHING said in this article.
I'm French and I approve what you all say. The French part means: "I'm a third generation AX 400 android, created to be your personal assistant and your intimate partner". According to one of my followers, the Japanese song is "Sakura Sakura", a traditional folk song: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... (the part Kara sings is the second one: "Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms, Across the Spring sky, As far as you can see.")
"I wasn't impressed by the demo." "Heavy Rain was predictable." "Blah, blah, blah." All worthless sentiments. Yet all too common here. Usually, it's the opinion of a troll or fanboy/anti-fanboy, and as such, can be disregarded. I'm amazed at how people can say things like that and be completely serious. I HAVE to assume they don't believe that, any more than Tom Chick believes Journey is a 2/5 game. These people can't possibly be that ignorant. They HAVE to be pulling the legs of the more sensible ones. I'll be quite sad if Kara doesn't somehow make it into QD's next game. More than sad, I think I'll honestly be disappointed. If they decide against implementing this concept directly into a game, perhaps they'll continue it in a feature length film of some sort. I could be content with that, I suppose. But I REALLY wanna play a game built around that seven minutes of amazing.
I wouldn't call that "decoded" so much as "highly speculated upon". I wouldn't call this article B.S. but this article is total B.S. Whoever wrote it just lost all sorts of credibility.
Very well write article enjoyed the read :) but with no doubt ill enjoy even more the GAME... zembora QD.
I liked the tech demo.
