I want Perfect Dark to come back as a third person stealth espionage game like Splinter Cell or MGS. Love the universe, but Halo has the FPS portfolio on lock down for Xbox.

Sciurus_vulgaris1796d ago

I want Perfect Dark to stick to it's FPS roots, but add in optional stealth and some rpg like elements. Customization could allow the player to approach missions in different manners, shot the place up, hack your way around, or sneak in and out without ever being noticed.

Paytaa1796d ago

I'd be down for that as well. Maybe add some Dishonored elements? Now I'm getting excited at the thought.

Sciurus_vulgaris1796d ago

@Was thinking Joanna could acquire upgrades, by finding them in mission or acquiring them from the Carrington Institute . Certain upgrades would be irreversible, while others would be reversible.
I was thinking cybernetics and alien technology could be a big part of the game and your character could only handle a certain amount of modification to their body . This would force the player to choice what upgrades they want depending on their play style .

Third person sounds better for a Perfect Dark reboot it could be like a futuristic stealth game with Rise of the Tomb Raider type of visuals

Sciurus_vulgaris1795d ago

Sorta of, except with better combat and rpg elements more comparable to what the Bioshock series offers.

game4funz1795d ago

I would actually like them to maintain the previous games strategy of every difficulty having more objectives as it gets harder

I've always said that a new Perfect Dark should go the third person route that would focus on more stealth or James Bond type of action. The story and lore for PD is awesome too and can really be expanded on.

There's too many FPS games out there and MS should try and switch it up for this series. Maybe keep the FPS gameplay for the MP.

Sciurus_vulgaris1796d ago

Having a first person mp and third person single player would likely cause strong dichotomy between the two modes. I was thinking a new perfect dark should be first person, but third person when using stealth and cover. I can however see where going full third person would have advantages.

Also I don't think the market has too many first person shooters. The issue is lack of originality in shooters. For example the new doom had singleplayer that was old school and well received. However, the mp of Doom received mixed and very negative reception due to it poorly blending old school features with modern cliches (loadouts, perks and no weapons on map),

bleedsoe9mm1796d ago

ms should take the assets from that shanghai heist game black tusk was working on and add them to do perfect dark reboot

coolbeans1796d ago

This. Everything about this is something I've wanted to see for a long time. Incorporating Splinter Cell Chaos Theory's stealth mechanics in a PD game would be grand.

otherZinc1795d ago (Edited 1795d ago )

I want Perfect Dark Zero 2, exactly the way it is. The Campaign Co-op was amazing. Halo does have the FPS on lock, however, a very good 2nd FPS is a good thing.

I'd like Kameo 2, Brute Force 2, & a new Forza Motorsport 6 Track.

A 2 TB XBOX ONE Slim is the new console. There's no need for a new XBOX.

Paytaa1795d ago

I remember tweeting to Phil Spencer about Brute Force and he said it's unlikely it'll ever be revisited .

Always wanted a sequel and still do. I mean it sold well, even faster than Halo CE did at one point. Sucks Digital Anvil closed down though.

MS will have the best E3 ever! The new Rare game is a totally new IP and is a genre that adds a welcome diversity for XBOX. Stay tune and oh, Scorpio will surprise many. ;)

gangsta_red1796d ago

I wanna say Battletoads but the article says new IP so all I can say is WHERE IS BATTLETOADS? (And Perfect Dark for that matter)

Very interested to see what else Rare has up their sleeves. Sea of Thieves is cool but I'm not really into Pirates so hopefully they have something else that will get me excited.

Been hearing a lot more inside info on Scorpio myself Rookie and it does sound very, very interesting. No doubt that MS will be treating it as a brand new console.

oSHINSAo1796d ago

Maybe, we are going to see a very advance Sea Of Thieves, the New IP, and a Battletoads remake, at the end, its a side scroller game and i want to stay as is,

freshslicepizza1796d ago

Like I get the 1st party thing but QB, scalebound and recore are 1st party ip's, just developed by 3rd

_-EDMIX-_1796d ago

Yes. First party IP as in MS owns the rights to that content. Not 100% sure on ReCore but I think someone has looked up it is owned by MS.

Only thing bad about that is the chance of another team making the sequels if the team falls through or doesn't get contracted again by MS etc. Similar to the situation that could be happening to The Order 1886. For all we know, Sony might already have Sony Santa Monica working on its sequel.

Zeref1796d ago (Edited 1796d ago )

@your previous comment

We all know for sure that Xbox Slim is going to happen. What we don't know for sure is if they'll also throw in the Xbox Scorpio. That's what makes it exciting. Because that will make or break this E3. If they don't announce it now after all these leaks I think a lot of fans including me are going to be disappointed. Sony will definitely steal the show with the PS4 NEO if Scorpio isn't there at all. They have to show us something. Even if its just a tease. Maybe finish the show with Gears 4 or a Halo game running on Rift VR and show the name "Xbox 4 - 2017" on screen and fade out.

Lenrulesdaworld1795d ago

They won't, they want the mini to breath and bought in august, them they'll have an event later in the year or at the xbox/windows conference and announce the scorpio for next year.

shiva11795d ago

Din they already state that neo is not going to be on show floor at E3. Apparently Keanu Reeves din get the perfect outfit to be at E3. Might stitch up few things and show up later.

Rumor is recently he's gone kungfu style and tore his outfit...
