Its a first person shooter/stealth but when you doing something really cool or "cinematic" it goes into third person to show you it. Its a fun game I cant wait for it. Im playing through butcher bay again right now.
That's the way how to do it Vin you are the best I cant wait any longer for the game or the movie RIDDICK ROCKS
Vin Deisel is awesome. I can't wait for the next Riddick movie, and I'm definitely getting Assault on Dark Athena!
I wish I was Vin Deisel... *sighs*... Lol. The game looks to be shaping up well. Looking forward to the movie too!
Kyota1, Did you see PITCH BLACK??? The eye-shine is all explained there! EFBB follows that storyline.
This is good news, Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay was a phenominal game, and this game can only add to the mystique around the Riddick character. I look forward to the game on the 360 platform. The fact that Twohy is working on a 3rd movie in the franchise also comes as welcome news. Good on ya! Vin. Keep making films and games that are developed together, instead of the trash games that keeps getting released just to make a buck and have zero content.
Let me start off by getting the fandom out of the way... --clears throat-- Woooo ! You Rock VD Okay so.. Vin rocks, He's actually one of my all time favorite actors, and as far as movie-to-game goes no-one does them like Vin. Don't get me wrong the voice acting of say Spiderman 1-3 with Toby wasn't a complete wash and hey any game that has Bruce Campbell in it even his voice can't be too bad. But Starbreeze and everyone working on the Riddick series did an absolute standing obviation job on the first game the shading and detail on VD himself were fantastic I could close my eyes and see Vin standing in the various poses needed for the modelers.. (Don't know if he actually did) I've been a big VD fan for years now.. as a D&D gamer myself I have often thought and wished simply to game with Vin.. none of the fan rubbish that most actors get just pure gaming session seeing the character concepts he comes up with and what he'd play. My biggest respect for the Riddick line is as VD himself said .. everyone is a Mythos expert and the carry over details from movie to game was fantastic. You seldom see games that can stay pure to their own worlds, and the writers for Chronicles did a great job adding a few lines here and there about the story in EFBB. Someone mentioned the eye-shine.. (Riddick-vision) Although you go to the Shaman in BB and this scene happens I got the feeling from Jak's comment in COR that this is more based on his being Furrion .. ie the cats have the same eyes.. perhaps a race of preditory animals from the Furrion homeworld before the Necro's went there. I'm looking forward to the next movie too as much as anyone.. and personally I loved the last one.. reguardless of its viewer rating. And the Riddick lines are brillent.. good job to the writters. "So here I'll sit and wait.. all back of the bus and sh*t" .. as I wait for the game and the next movie.. I'm hoping the DA game gives my 9600 a full Riddick work over for the PC version.
Honestly I was really surprised by this interview. But when I thought about it for a second it occurred that the only thing's I've ever had to judge Mr Diesel (Yes I'm going to keep calling him that) on are his films. Not the best places to start since he tends to get the "big, bad, (sometimes cunning) but not overly intelligent tough guy" roles. Which probably have nothing much to do with what he's actually like. Since then, and with a bit of thought on the matter, all I can say to the man is well done. He set up a company to ensure that his likeness wasn't abused in the gaming world as, let's be fair, many have been to sell steaming piles of detritus. He had the intelligence to let people do what they do best, but arm them with the knowledge they needed to do the IP justice. A lot of other stars could have done this, and for most it would have seemed arrogant. Fortunately Mr Diesel seems to have kept his feet at least partially attached to the ground and, rather than turn his company into a money spinning exercise, has actually made something other film-to-game converters should take note of. Let's just hope all the other games they make live up to the high expectations Butcher Bay gave us.
Vin is the man! I just got to respect an action star like Vin that keeps it real and admits he loves video games. I doubt someone like Tom Cruise allows himself to just chill out and play some GTA or something at least you never hear him talk about it. Im really looking forward do this game and The Wheelman! I really cant wait for the next Riddick movie, -You keep what you kill-, hot damn what a way to end a movie, Ive been jonesing to find out what happens next ever since I saw it back in 04!
I do like the vision he has for Tigon studios. I can only take so many Fantastic 4 and bad Spider-man games before I crack. Riddick was and is awesome though.
Game looks cool, but i was told this story about Vin Deisel when i was in Naigra Falls, Canada, it was halarouis.
He is such a cool dude. I didnt like all his movies but he has a good idea of things a gamer and a movie goer like to see. Plus he's unique, how many actors/game designers you know?
It's sure nice to hear from one who has made his career so big and still be able to read about how down to earth he really is with people. I enjoyed reading it, good work by all involved, thank you. Game On Dude. robin1104
vd is a very cool guy and he loves games but hes been in some bad movies pitch black is the best if they make a new riddick movie hope is like that
Riddick is awesome, I have liked the character since Pitch Black. I never played the first game, but have heard nothing but good things about it. I will definitely download the demo for the new game on Live later.
yeah wat dubel 07 said,i mean u hear about how all these actors are stuck up d-bags,but i gess not,but yeah sounds F'n shweet!!
Great work! Film + game it's gona be great year for Riddick's fans (me). PS. I hope we will see first film trailer this year ;)
@simonsworld: you just made my day. It's nice to know that they're working on another movie and that VD isn't a jerk.
this guy almost made bald heads looks cool,and the name "vin diesel" sounds like a form of sexual brake fluid, gotta like that.
The reviews may have slammed the movies but, actually, I'm fairly certain--and this is the important part--it made a great deal of money. It broke even in theatres and then DVD sales were pretty damn good. And the game did well, too. So I think all is well, Blackace.
Vin always was a professional stand up guy with this seedy cool guy attitude...awesome interview but i'm kinda wary on the whole Breakdancing IP possibility lol...i'm hoping that was a joke as look how bad the Tony Hawk games got after number 2 lol.
The Riddick series is was very good in my book. I don't care what the critics say, I loved both movies. Even the anime was very cool. I agree that Vin should make the 3rd on "R" rated, but he probably won't. I'm still going to see it no matter what it's rated. I've been waiting patiently and hopefully this movie will come out next year. Fast and Furious also looks pretty sweet. I'm glad Paul and Vin are making another one with the ladies. Never got a chance to meet Vin when he was at the E3. Line was way too long and we had to leave early. I heard he's a very cool guy and down to earth. Keep up the good work Vin. Now I have to watch "Find Me Guilty".
Oh man evilross I have been waiting to pick up event horizon for a year now! I've never seen it but it sounds like one of the best sci-fi movies ever.
