Okay. This is a big 'un. CVG has just finished a chinwag with Heavy Rain auteur David Cage - and discovered that the French designer is plotting to turn the war genre on its head with a new project.
Good! And he's working on two different projects :)
hmm war huh? War never changes....
that quote with that name and avatar? Mismatch at best, at worst... BLASPHEMY! ;)
Or does it?
Yes War has changed.... Did it?
Look guys, Fallout doesn't think war has changed because it's still the same concept. People fight because they're values contradict. While in Metal Gear an economy has been built up around war that is so important that war is no longer about fighting for a goal, but for keeping an economy alive. So they're fighting for a common goal, unlike in Fallout where they're still fighthing for different goals! Two different game universes, two different situations. Just because Bulletstorm devs can't cope with that doesn't mean we can't! Nice explanation if I have to say so myself... :)
what the hell is a chinwag? anyway, let's hope he moves on with Horizon first, with have plenty of war games and from what he's saying he probably never played Metal Gear
It's hilarious that the PS3 has more shooters than the box does. XD http://i.imgur.com/pYk23.gi...
It's also funny that PS3 has more games than the 360
Why do yousay "War never changes" and then have a name like Iroquois Pliskin from MGS2? If you're a MGS fan, you would know that it is "War has CHANGED"
he was clearly making a duty calls reference not fallout....
if there is any one that can do it then its this man right here
U mad, bro?
. Later when nobody wants to buy fps war games anymore, the dumb haters will blame Activision and not clowns like this guy and EA...lol
Hope he works with some teams who have been involved in making war games. There's a massive line he will be crossing going that route, a line that is very harsh to live up to for developers.
i pictured a war game with HR visuals and for bonus... facial animation like LA Noire (hope i spelled it right) ============= super mega epic win.... peace
@Bkay Heavy Rain looks the way it does because you're squished into a box during gameplay. If you noticed the larger areas are quite void of detail. It's very unlikely to get the same level of detail, unless we're fighting inside the whole time.
Its called Home Front David.
Call of Duty, Call of Duty, Call of Duty... This is worse than the N64/Ps1 era when EVERY platformer was labeled a "mario clone" and every shooter a "DOOM clone" He NEVER mentioned COD, CrapVG did, saying "potentially BLAH BLAH BLAG"
Hell yes! More Cage games is what the world needs. HR was my GOTY of '10.
He makes very good games and heavy rain IS still very good and emotional. Cant wait to see what he does with a title like this.
his shooter would need to be multi to have any impact
Explain. No, please, I'm dying to hear you thought process on this.
what good is making a deep shooter if its only limited to one console...it won't reach as many gamers as should. [email protected] because many studios are paid to keep titles exclusive
That's not really a reasoning though. Why limit anything to any console?
because it can look sooooo much better!! that is.. they could make it on pc aswell though. i would be ok with that...
It needs to be good to have an impact, Heavy Rain was outstanding an that wasn't muti.
I don't think it needs to be multi to make an impact but it will probably sell more if it was multi.
To have _any_ impact? That's a fairly massive declaration. So, no exclusive title has had an impact?
uncharted had a huge impact on the industry and wasn't exclusive what about ocarina of time or shadow of the colossus you comment is invalid
Last i played on Xbox live i don't remember ever playing with deep thinking players. Look a how will the xbox community helped alan wake.
A war game with more of a story? OK.... Im listening....
No no no no! Leave all the stupid emotions out of my shooter. No EMO please.
This is exactly the kind of shot in the arm the FPS genre needs. Storytelling from an accomplished adventure game creator. I really hope this works out.
Anything he can possibly do to make the FPS genre worth looking at and I'm game. I am so sick and tired of FPS and online deathmatches it's not even funny. I hope he breaks the damn mold and gets companies like Bungie, Epic, Valve, Activision, EA and Insomniac thinking about new ways to play.
I'm PRETTY SURE it won't be an FPS.
As long as its not the generic America is the good buys Russia, Korean, china or Iraq is the bad guys why not something like Russia is the good guys (voice action in Russian with subs HATE it when I’m watching a foreign film and the voices are English) and America is trying to expand to the rest of the world, instead it it ALWAYS being America save the world flip the tables around? Or something
David Cage is writing it. Chances are good that it will be far from generic.
exactly ..if his previous projects are any indication.. this won't be your average story.
I deeply respect this man
and i deepy respect luffy for his pure awesomenes and stupidty lol
one piece 4ver)
oh yeh, totaly guted there was no one piece manga this week :( wtf is up with oda? after the war arc theres been a month break, back for 2 weeks a week break back for two weeks then aweek break >.< come on!! plus the chapters seam to be getting shorter :(
break for the author and some new series that will eiether come back ( Hunter x hunter ) or start ..that's why sometimes there is less pages .. you have to understand that oda is only human .. he need to rest ..
i understand that he needs rest...thats why he took a month of but oh well cant wait to see some of zoro's new movies like took over the castle on his own plus the king lol
Awesome!! It's probably not gonna be anything like it, but imagine Hurt Locker with game mechanics like Heavy Rain, but with some additional combat mechanics as well in certain situations.
something tells me MW3 will be the story of Ghost, he seems like a character who could make an emotional story .
The day that a COD game is considered to have an emotional story is the day that our standards have been mangled beyond recognition.
id rather leave my emotions out of my mindless killing sprees
Mr. Cage you got my attention. Can it be done?
...one QTE at a time. I can only imagine how frustrating it will be to reload the damn gun. :o
did you know that he made some games without QTE , i'd suggest to try his first game ..it's called THE NOMAD SOUL. and then you'll realise how stupid you sounded ...
It'll be a major accomplishment if this game can match or better the gameplay, storytelling and length of Half-Life 2. Hoping Homefront has a good and deep story to it.
I'm really interested in this. I've always wanted a war game that had a deep, emotional story on the bar of Heavy Rain. It looks like that's gonna happen now. And who said it has to be a modern warfare setting?
Color me intrigued.
empty gameplay-less predictable boring piece of shit+the no.1 franchise at milking....this is gotta be interesting
Could be interesting. War affects the soldiers and their families, this could be good.
NO MORE FING WAR GAMES, NO DEAL.
david c. is a very talented man and heavy rain was a masterpiece. So, is it multi or not?
The game will probably look washed out and it will be filled with QTE's and garbage controls. Everyone will walk and talk like robots and the environments, animations and people will look lifeless. Just like Heavy Rain.
Can we wait for some details before we fire up the hate train? Just a thought.
"Can we wait for some details before we fire up the hate train?" I've done that for a lot of games, all of which turned out to play and look garbage.
Well, that'll teach me to be outreaching to people. I guess I'll exercise that philosophy and immediately hate anything anyone has to offer before hearing a single concrete detail about it if they even slightly disappointed me in the past.
Don't feed the troll.
I'd be interested to see HR's ideas taken to a more action-packed environment. I'm sure it can be done. Can't wait to hear more! Seriously though, Cage, keep a handle on the convoluted supernatural plot twists this time. Got it?
EDIT: Ah crap, can someone delete this? Meant to reply somewhere else.
Ugh, do we need yet another COD clone? Let It die man.
Yes maybe now developers will change the crap they put out on a yearly basis...can't wait to see what project he's working on.
