Damn this board moves fast...it is hard to keep up.
So Blackbond...do you work in the industry?
No, but I did like your GoW game and I am definately looking forward to GoWII. You better not let me down man :P
I'm afraid to think what will happen if it let's you down....
My life will end and then I'll jump off a bridge of course. Not really lol. But hey even great games are let downs some times. Look at Halo 2. There are a lot of games that turned out as a let down to me but I still enjoyed them anyways. You can find fault in any game if you try hard enough. My roomate is getting it anyways so whether its amazing, great, or average it doesn't affect my wallet.
Yeah Halo 2 bummed me out as wel. I loved the first game...both single and multi player. But the second one..with the smaller FOV and the Dual WWielding always made me feel like I couldn't see enough of what was around me. cory
[QUOTE="Blackbond"]So I have to ask Cor. What do you think of Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden?corybarlog
Ahhh great question. This should make some headlines on Kotaku :) I really like DMC 1 and 3. I just picked up the 3 pack of all the games and will hopefully have some time to replay them. I like the fighting system in the games...the storeies are ok but have never really grabbed me. I am looking forward to seeing what they do with DMC4 though...the early vids look somewhat promising...but again in they are really early and the game will most likely change a lot before it ships. As for Ninja gaiden ...I don't get too much time to play games...so when a games is a notoriously hard as that game is I don't get to spend the time with it I wish I could. I honestly really don't like uber difficult games...games that feel difficult for difficult's sake. Some people dig that, but not me. I haven't finished the game...mostly because it is too damn hard. If I had a ton more time to dedicate to it I could finish it, but in the end I just wonder what the point is. To each their own...I respect the quality of the game though, and the production vaules. The animations are freaking great. Story...not bad...but also not the greatest in the world.
What about you?
[QUOTE="Blackbond"]Sweet screw you Kotaku I am the man interviewing now :P
Well I like all the games in all the series except DMC 2. I had only played recently as of this year DMC 3 because I haven't had access to my brothers PS2 from college. But to put it blunt. You give me GOW's story and brutal moves, with Ninja Gaiden's silky smooth gameplay and weapons, combined with the guns of and other transformations of DMC and then I think you would have an incredible game haha. I do like Ninja Gaiden the best though. I am one of those people that likes difficult games for the sake of them being difficult. Just like Megaman games. Make sure YOU KEEP the God difficulty setting.
For my last question. This is going to cause an uproar I know it lol. What do you think about the PS3 not having rumble? Its not going to be the same to be curshing bones and feeling any sudden jolts in my hands. While we are at it what about Tilt? You could make some good moves with that. Like pulling back on a monsters head until it breaks, moving the controller upward and downward like you are on top of a monster bashing his face into the ground ect.
First...we have God difficulty and Titan Difficulty...It is not as crazy hard as Dante Must Die mode or anything, but it is no slouch either. As far as the rumble thing...it is a bit of a bummer but as a designer I am more interested in what the gameplay in the game will have to offer rather than some of the feedback. Rumble definely contributes to the immersion, and to be sure I am a big fan of it, but I am quite confident we can make fun gameplay experiences without the need for that...it was done with so many gamesbefore the rumble feature right? Man the Megaman games frustrated the hell out of me as a kid. I still played them a lot, but they made me so mad.
[QUOTE="Blackbond"][QUOTE="corybarlog"][QUOTE="Blackbond"]Okay last thing Cory and then I'm out for a bit:
God of War PSP is it going to happen?
Why does everyone think Megaman is hard. Is it really that hard?
Have you ever thought of implementing multiplayer or Co-Op in God of War?
1. No idea on this as of yet...I think it is a great idea though.
2. Cause its hard. It really is. Some people are like Rain man savant good at games, and they think "This isn't that hard" but to the rest of us it is freaking had.
3. Yes...though interent based melee games are a hard nut to crack. Very hard to deal withLatency when you are doing something as exacting as melee...very hard to fake it the way you can fake the projectile based stuff.
Seriously quesiton would you guys like buy a game that only did mult player co-op on the system and not on the internet?
Halo 1 and Halo 2 my man. They didn't have online co-op and if you can implement an offline co-op
Thanks for the info...good talking to you too man. I am the real deal though. I mean my over use of the ellipses should be evidence enough. :) cory
it's me...check the latest post...halfway down. there is a link to this thread
