Animation has always been one of the strong points of Naughty Dog games, and today Lead Animator Jeremy Yates provided some data about the sheer amount of custom animations included in the game and in the demo you saw at E3.
Wtf?! naughty gods indeed
Naughty dog and Bethesda will heroically usher us into the next generation of gaming for adventure and rpg
I see a Giant Robotic Dinosaur following this group.
I've always loved the contextual animations Naughty Dog bestowed upon the gaming community last generation. And I've always loved seeing other devs try and fail to emulate it. Looks like they've raised the bar in that scenario again. Another Naughty Dog first was the contextual ad-lib dialogue, they'd have the voice actors watch them playthrough levels and scenarios and throw in bits of dialogue in character which, during a playthrough, you could miss out on entirely if you don't look at a specific part of the level or go a specific route. No doubt theres more of that and then some in store for us in Drakes last outing :) My friends a big troy baker/nolan north fan, so having them both in one game as brothers has him going in to spasms XD
Naughty Dog please stop!! We get it you guys are the very best!!!!!! lol
None of us would have even realized if they didn't tell us. Naughty Dog always goes beyond.
DAMN!!! Just waiting on that release date, guessing either at the Paris Game Show or PS Experince.
Damn ND what are you doing https://www.youtube.com/wat... look at the f u c k i n upgrade in 2015 build
Would be great to get a nice custom bundle with this game since its the last Uncharted with Drake
Naughty Dog is in a class by itself. There is Naughty Dog and then there is the rest of the industry IMO.
All hail the mighty ICE team! Not only do they make Naughty Dog one of the best devs around with some of the best tech, they also bestow their wizardry upon any other 1st party sony studio that might need em. Gentleman scholars, the lot of em!
Drakes crowd maneuvering animations/dialogue were very impressive in the E3 demo, seemed to have working gun holsters as well! Gotta love ND's attention to detail, i still remember being blown away by seeing Drake run his hand across a wall in Uncharted
Or uncharted 2 during that opening train segment when he shields his face from the heat of any nearby fires, raising it even closer the closer you get. Or in uncharted 3, running straight into a wall and pushing himself of it or putting his hands up to brake the collision of smacking in to it. Contextual animations FTW! Those were the two that blew me away on my frist playthroughs of UC2 and UC3 (because they were the first, of MANY to be seen, and so stuck in my mind more clearly). Sadly my memories of UC1 are a little hazy, not because it wasnt memorable, but because I'm old and that was yonks ago!
Great eye for detail, i hadn't noticed the brace that drake does when running into a wall in u3. Im in the middle of my TLOU grounded play through and just noticed that Elli shields here eyes, squints, and shifts her head when you shine your flashlight in her face!! SO COOL
Loved how they carried over what they did with TLOU to UC4, looks like sully learned a trick or two from Ellie :)
ND IS COOL
