Capcom recently released its Annual Report for 2014, and it included an update on Deep Down, provided by Consumer Games Development Division 2 Department 2 Senior Manager Teruki Miyashita.
I'm excited to see how this is looking now. Hopefully we can get this in 2015
I think this will look great, but there's something off putting about the two words 'randomly generated' that makes me worry. I suppose it's because I like a narrative with my RPGs and randomly generated means you can't really have that.
Well its a F2P. And the Major enphisis of this game is COOP. It would get boring pretty fast if dungeons and monster spawns were always the same.
I think that might be too simplistic of a translation. All of this was translated. I think it might be better translated as procedurally generated.
Just remember, Diablo III had a degree of randomness in the generated dungeons and what was there was great. I wished there had been more and more diversity but if it is heading along those lines then great.
I understand not liking randomly generated , the only game I remember liking with it was Sword of Vermillion . Maybe there were others but I can not think of them atm. But this game looks like something I will enjoy, rpg and coop for me and my son. Hopefully it hits west soon after japanese release.
This game looks amazing. Just amazing what devs are starting to do with the strong power of the PS4.
persona 3, 4 all the diablo games.
Teruki Miyashita! Miyashita on you!
rogue legacy and binding of isaac both had randomly generated level and they were phenomenal, really made the game more fun and feel new everytime you play it. also bloodborne has an optional area called the chalice dungeon which is randomly generated as well and it looks interesting
Yeah because the Diablo games have no narrative.
The narrative I speak of isn't just a cut scene here and there to create a basic structure, it's a fully integrated narrative as in Uncharted or TLOU. I demand more from my games now. For all I know this game may have the best narrative I've ever seen because of how cleverly they've managed the randomness, but I still worry when I see the word 'random'. I like the idea that the WHOLE scene is structured. You cannot do that randomly.
For me is just another luxory game PS4 can release, they don't hype it, just one more exclusive, reminds me of the PS2 era...
30fps confirmed! At least it's a slow pace game. The dragon animation would look better @60fps.
Really? Every PS4 article? Is there no Xbox One or PC games you could be playing? You really have to troll every PS4 article?
This troll thinks 60+ fps is everything and cares more about that than games itself. Thank god I don't have that stupid mentality and not limit myself from playing games that have the potential to be great.
nowhere in the article did they mention 30fps. and the demo they showed a long time ago was 60fps... there'd be no reason to change that.
Yet it wouldn't be able to reach 60 frames on the xbox one either. Much like the majority of all upcoming games on either platform, hypocritical troll.
Guyman how is he hypocritical? Where in his comment does he mention Xbox? I swear you Sony fanboys should wrap your ps4s in a bullet proof vest always so damn defensive
OMG if this came out in 2015 that would help push 2015 to maybe being the greatest year ever.
Well I expect it to look great. Not much to render in those corridors.
your downplaying is just getting sadder, and sadder with each passing day.
I am very excited for Deep Down. I hope it's awesome.
how about the best gameplay/story of any ps4 game? or is that all ps4 owners seem to care about now
its only that graphics are the the greatest way to show the power of next gen, its visual, you see the differences in an instant between last gen and this gen, all of that in a glimpse. but gameplay how the game feels is not something thats easily demonstrated, to have a true feel for it we must play the game ourselves, and capcom is not new in the industry, they know how to make good gameplay, The story is even less showable through clips. So to demonstrate the power of next gen consoles, companies have to rely on graphics, and we have to hope that gameplay and story follows suit. because the last 2 are more difficult to demonstrate, especially if the game is still being developped.
It's the dev that gave the update on the game ..... and guess what ? He gets to decide which topic he's going to tackle.
You're trying to imply that PS4 owners only care about one aspect of gaming... by complaining that one article mentioned an aspect of gaming that isn't the one aspect you seemingly find important. That was confusingly worded, I know. I'll try to help explain with an example of the kind of idiocy you're engaged in, 'Here we have the new Lexus, it's very spacious with a lot of leg room'. 'Okay, sweet. What about the leg room on the Toyota?' 'The Toyota is even roomier than the Lexus. Lots of leg room there' 'Okay' 'and here we have the Porsche, which has a top speed of...' 'Ugh, you car people are so obsessed with speed! Is that all you care about? What about the leg room?'
You won the internet for the day.
or like those xbox one owners who think directx12 and every other dashboard update with make the xbox one 10000000 times more powerful than anything.
Right, because "all ps4 owners" are the ones that are making this game and gave this statement, not Capcom or anything... Not only did you generalize over 18 million people, but you also did it in a way that doesn't even make sense. Stay in school or get better at trolling.
Get that volumetric fire going and I'll say that's a big step towards that.
Let's hope that they release this game this year....i am tired about games that ar delayed.... And i hope that we will have a new gameplay soon...
30 fps confirmed.
I'm willing to bet it will be "30FPS" with frequent dips. Just like last gen titles were.
Crazy how we have "settled" back into this, after all the hoopalala about [email protected] Hope the game turns out good though.
You mean like Ryse, Dead Rising 3, AC Unity etc.
Yeah it is pretty crazy but not surprised at all. At the very very least it needs to be a locked 30. But I just don't see that happening.
You mean like legit next gen games? You do know that the titles that had lower frames and res were the titles that were fully next gen right? You do know that running in 1080p, 60fps means the engine is LESSOR right? Turn on your computer bud, play tetris in 1080p, 60fps, now play Crysis. Chances are...if Crysis didn't play that well compared to Tetris, its because CRYSIS IS NEXT GEN, ITS MORE DEMANDING! LMFAO! Full next gen games will take MORE to run. I'll take a next gen quality GTAVI running in 900p, 30fps locked, compared to a dated GTAV running in 1080p, 60fps. Just saying, most of the idiots who think that next gen is about (1080p, 60fps) don't know a thing about game engines and THINK that 1080p, 60fps = better looking. Sharper.....faster, doesn't always mean "better" Would you take Crysis running in 720p, 30fps or Doom 1 running in 1080p, 120fps LMFAO! THAT is what your asking a developer to do. What people will notice before resolution or framerate is quality and detail. If you show folks GTASA and GTAV, of course they will think GTAV looks better....really funny though, on PS3 and 360, GTASA RUNS "better" then GTAV...should they just keep using Renderware? We really that dumb this gen as to favor numbers over actually demanding engines and next gen quality? LOL! Sooooo GTAV should just keep the same engine to give you a number? Would you never want GTAV in favor of GTASA using the same engine JUST to get 1080p 60fps? .......too funny.
I'll take it being detailed in 30FPS, then being dated looking in 60fps. Next gen games demand next gen level power. This should be expected. Hell, I would worry if it was 60fps as I must question, how much was the game downgraded to do this? Look at the games that run 1080p, 60fps on PS4 and XONE...they are last gen ports, dated games, running on dated engines. If the do run 1080p, 60fps, look at all the sacrifices made JUST to run that number ie Forza 5... REAL FULL next gen games, demand power!!! Thus, won't run such a setting ie 1080p, 60fps, if you game on PC, then you 100% GET what I'm talking about. I favor a full next gen game more then a port, regardless of what its running at. Give me a new engine, more detail any day.
Have fun with your next gen tech demos.
I agree. I don't just want last-gen game engines with 60fps... that's not enough of an improvement for me. I want global illumination, physical based material rendering, night/day cycle, lots more particles, better physics, more NPCs on screen, tessellation (or high quality parallax mapping) non-baked lighting, high quality ambient occlusion, indirect lighting and next gen animations.
I agree, EDMIX. Personally The current state of affairs is what I expect from jaguar APUs. I dont care what type of ram is got attached to it, there is no escaping the very obvious fact that neither console can push high IQ AND 60FPS at the same time. We are in year two and people are learning to peel back the lofty expectations. My comment was more about, the kind of comments that were so abundant during the first year of XB1/PS4. people on here were talking like the second wave of games were going to be pulling off 1080P/60FPS. I never bought into that. Because it clearly is not becoming the norm with the games that are coming out. I have a PC that smokes both consoles combined. I play firefall, asseto corsa and star citizen, mostly, and I would NEVER build a PC with XB1/PS4 specs. Not if I wanted to run all the latest games at 1080P AND 60FPS. But... "If the do run 1080p, 60fps, look at all the sacrifices made JUST to run that number ie Forza 5..." FM5 is a bad example, of the point you are making ( Your comments are correct, but I dont think FM5 is the game to make that point, with). its a launch game that was built on an SDK that predates the launch of the XB1 itself. Also for a sim racer 60FPS is preferable to the highest fidelity possible. arcade racers are ok @30FPS though still better at 60FPS. But yes, we are already seeing the trade offs. What bothers me ( but not to the point of ruining my fun) is that we have games that have trouble holding even a steady 30FPS. We should atleast be past that.
Why are you ignoring the fact that games that say "30FPS" aren't actually 30FPS. Your whole argument doesn't even tackle the issue. The issue is that the games fail to run locked at 30. That is when games start feeling like crap. Last gen had that problem and it appears this gen will too. Locked 30 is perfectly fine if they can actually do it but since they are trying to push graphics on consoles lacking the hardware we get subpar30fps.
throw all the graphics you want, still not biting on a pay to win title
Since you obviously played the game plz tell us what kind microtransactions is this game going to have ?
stupid post. PTW is something the industry is moving away from, not towards. Nothing about this game has stated anything in that regard.... At least know the industry trends before assuming like an idiot....
But it's co-op.. Who are you winning against? The NPC's? I'm sure they'll be offended you payed money for the sword your beheading them with.. Pay to assist then?..that's terrible /s...
It will be $2 to finish the article.
So is this game coming to America or not????
Likely a yes as the game already has English voice acting.
I find so weird to invest so much in a ftp game. Maybe I'm being dull here, but I really think ftp belongs on mobile gaming. Well, I still am interested in learning more about this game (as I have a weak spot for rpgs). I hope they can make this business model works.
Not me if done right, Planetside 2 for example.
I have never played anything ftp aside from a few ios games and I have never even heard of planetside, so I must admit I'm clueless on this matter. Everything I've read/saw about the game sounds exciting, and that's why I wish they'd just dish the ftp and turn it into a regular retail game, with a beginning, middle and an end with lots of lore to be immersed into. Anyway, I'll definitely keep an eye on this one and cheer for it to be as epic as it sounds.
Isn't this game free to play...I don't get why it's taking so long.
"Capcom aims for highest quality graphics of any PS4 game" ;)
I would be more excited for Dragon's Dogma 2.
This game will be garbage. Remember we were supposed to get a beta in Feb last year and nothing came out and nobody said nothing about why we never got it. Plus its Crapcom, these ppl are garbage.
but.. but.. Capcom are now making SFV a Sony exclusive.. all this is forgiven.. they never EVER had dodgy DLC policies
I know this game is gonna have horrible Micro transactions that pay 5 dollars for multiplayer that was already on the disc on RE5 or 6 I can't remember which one was horrible same with Dragon Dogma but all is forgiven because they making ps4 exclusives lol
So the game is F2P or not?
playstation has the best exclusives and games
Lol.. still making bs comments. 30fps! Woohoo
Good god the trolls on these articles are too much. The game isn't out yet and they're calling it a PTW game and that it's going to be garbage. Do us a favor keep you're crystal ball opinions to yourselves.
You have to realize news is slow for them. It's this way every time a PS exclusive gets news. Their smear campaign thankfully didn't work on Driveclub and many are realizing it isn't bad after having played it themselves.
Free to Play + Capcom = Bad news! I would be very cautious about this game and be more worried at other things rather than how great the graphics are. Capcom is known for trying to squeeze every nickel and dime out of their fan base.
"I would be very cautious about this game and be more worried at other things rather than how great the graphics are." ....the folks that program the game are not the same folks working on how great it looks, you do know games are created by TEAMS right? Not 1 dude that can only focus on one thing at once right? Soooo this immature idea that one is doing something "rather" then something else sounds....sounds a bit young to me. Just saying...they can do both, having a game look great doesn't mean it will play poorly as the 2 are not being done by the same person, thus...have nothing to do with each other in that regard. Secondly...have you played it?
Hmmmm, not sure if you were getting my point that was mainly about Capcom and this Free to Play model. Capcom has a way of locking content on discs, bringing out a lot of unnecessary DLC and other practices that have had gamers questioning them. Aaaand not once did I even mention, speculate or even talk about one person focusing on one thing. I seriously have no idea where this comment is even coming from. So i have to ask...what the heck are you talking about?
Especially considering everyone who's had the privilege of trying it says Deep Down plays like how Dragons Dogma plays, I have no worries about the gameplay, this game will have both great graphics and gameplay.. I can't wait to play it myself as soon as the BETA hits the Japanese PSN. @ gangsta_red I'd rather they lock content on a F2P game then a game I paid $60 for.. As for the unnecessary DLC, Don't BUY it..
