Can't wait to see more of this game looks interesting. And on another note I wished these fanboys being ether pc playstation nintendo or xbox you fucktards are the worst thing to happen to gaming.

I hope this 'game' doesn't turn out to be just another massive string of 'quick-time' events like cages last games were recently.  Quick Time Events are a terrible and lazy way of developing a game.  There are Always better ways to do gameplay than simply flashing a prompt on the screen and forcing the player to press a random button to continue a scene.

I do not find the idea of "Press X to Jason" as being an entertaining way to play a game. (Yes, I am looking at you Heavy Rain - your gameplay sucked!)

Sam Lake's a genius.  I wish Remedy could break away from M-Dollar, though.  I only turn my 360 on for Alan Wake & Gears (which got way too weird by the middle of Gears 2).

i dont know but its Remedy and Sam Lake, these guys gave us Max Payne and Alan Wake. I love Sam Lake and his games but since most gamers dont appreciate his stuff, dude should go write a movie or tv series. too bad its a xbone exclusive =(

I hope its $20 because that is all I will be willing to pay for a linear ass TV show.

I'm very skeptical about this idea. Does "blur the line" mean the game is basically an interactive cutscene, or that the narrative is seamlessly integrated into gameplay in a way that other games have failed to do?

I'm all for this new focus on narratives in video games, but not if it's at the expense of interactivity or innovation in mechanical gameplay.

Is the person on the left of the video a dude or a chick? I ask because I am confused.

Didn't really enjoy the GS editors poking fun at this game - when they don't seem to know anything about it :P

It'll be great if this game comes together. If so, I hope it eventually makes it to the PC at least.

@SwungCookie They should make an exclusive game where we figure out the answer to this question in a three part trilogy. I'd buy it

@Slagar Poking fun at it? I was just enthusiastically sharing my impressions of what little I saw of the game. I'm totally intrigued; the game is trying something new in terms of storytelling, and I'm grateful for that. Whether or not it works out well, it's WAY too soon to tell, but it wasn't my intention to poke fun at the game. I had fun talking about it, and since it's a game, I think that's okay.
