hope the live action episodes are well produced

abzdine1947d ago

yes but show me some gameplay videos before gamers can say anything!
looks interesting for sure but it's hard to imagine what the game is really gonna be just from a CG cinematic

nick3091947d ago

You probably never played max payne , alan wake. I trust remedy to innovate AGAIN. STOP BEING A SONY FANBOY, because its coming to xbox1

Remedy‘s creative di rector and writer, Sam Lake:

"What you get when you buy the game is essentially the first season of Quantum Break. That includes the whole game and the whole show. They are connected in many different ways. The idea is that you get this deeper entertainment experience and they are interwoven, so we are aiming to get the perfect TV show-model pacing. So you play an episode of the game, you do certain junction points and choices along the way, and once you get to the end, we unlock an episode of the show.You get to watch it and see the consequences of the choices you’ve made in the game. Then you see glimpses of other stuff that helps you in the game, it gives you further information about certain things as well as clues how to unlock even further material. And then once again you get to play another episode of the game and it goes like that."

-Sounds like a pretty damm interesting concept to me. Its good to be talking about games again. ...I'm pretty excited about X1.

Nothing to do with being Sony fanboy. You don't hear me say that the order 1886 is the best game ever because I don't really know how the gameplay is gonna be.
Give me some gameplay and I'll tell you if the game is any good.
I'm just being realistic to avoid bad surprises.

the cutscene they showed wasn't' CGI, it was in game

abzdine1946d ago


Yes, the same way Milo & Kate was real time as well.

Probably it's gonna be a QTE game

Alexious1947d ago

No, that's Ryse. But since it's Remedy they will surely take their good time.

Kanzes1947d ago

I don't mind QTE games though :/ that kind of game always deliver a good story and experience such as The Walking Dead and Heavy Rain

Septic1947d ago

You mean like Heavy Rain?

I hope not. I hope it's a 'proper' third person game in the vein of Max Payne and Alan Wake.

DonFreezer1947d ago

Shut your mouth.Ryse will not have QTE at all at hard.

CrossingEden1946d ago

meanwhile, let's praise beyond two souls right?

the promise is great but seeing as it's still early in its development, things can change. Alan Wake was a great example for undelivered promises after a long period of development. just hope that this game won't suffer the same fate.

not saying that AW is a bad game but it was not what was promised. Insomniac's Overstrike is another one.

Alexious1947d ago

Agreed, although I'm not sure they'll pull it off perfectly. So far the synergy between games and TV shows has proved to be complicated.

True_Samurai1947d ago

Extends the hours of the game sweet. He aalso mentions seasons

LightofDarkness1947d ago

This all sounds like it's going to be a very expensive project. I have to question the wisdom of pumping so much into this project as it could well have the potential to deep-six them if it fails to sell a few million copies.
