Coverage = WOW

Between the latest Webisode going up and the press tour that Steve (our Project Lead) did last week, we've definitely had the biggest interest spike in the game. I said I'd stop this blog from being an aggregation tool, so I'll just say that you should check out all of the main online web outlets -- chances are they'll have new images, videos, and interviews with Steve up.

While it's cool to give the journalists their look, I also want to give you guys new stuff that you can't get anywhere else in terms of insight into how we are making the game.

This time, I thought I'd drop a blooper video. A couple weeks ago, we decided to play with the force applied to grenade explosions. Our theories on trying things like this is usually to crank it up to 11 and then scale down from there (which is how we came up with some of the amazing decapitations and dismemberments).

In the below clip I just cut off a trooper's leg (hence the moaning you hear to start) and am now being hammered by another guy from a bunkered in machine gun nest. One way to kill him is by tossing a grenade into his little fortress.

So... while this isn't the force of grenades in the game now -- here is a look at what they could be - cranked to 11 ;)

Enjoy

P.S. Sath - we wanted to get a demo out roughly a month before the game ships... so its coming soon, but likely not before the holiday season.

This latest Dark Sector "Resurface" has been great. Ive been following this for a long time now and keeps getting better and better. Good Job!

Would you guys (and gals?) be willing to input a cheat code or an option of increasing the grenade power after finishing the game?

I've been looking forward to your game ever since that Game Informer article all those months ago.

January 22 can't come soon enough.

I want the holiday to be now :P

I saw Gamevideos.com and checked out the Prologue, the cutscenes, awesome job for sure.

I can say this though, voice overs are top notch, I thought it would be cheesy, but you guys nailed it.

Mind mentioning who the voice over is for Hayden!?

But yeah the grenade stuff was very cool, reminds me of Warhawk on PS3 when you grenady someone they fly off way up in the sky.

I almost watch my two big swag posters you guys at DE sent me, and I wish the day of release was today :)

Again, not to sound annoying but I HAVE to know...any news on the music!?
It sounds great, it has that Half-Life 2, Resident Evil, Batman Begins type of music, love it.

Keep up the good work devs.

Hi Dark Sector Team!
I've been following this game for quite a while now (since last year) & while this is my first comment on this blog I've read all the posts as well & have scourered the net for every video your team ever released. Two quick questions: 1) That old video of what seems to be an opening sequence with Hayden infiltrating a large ship, then being discovered & fighting his out, climaxing w/him turning a large enemy robot on it's own men & then Hayden locking into his own ride outta there was SWEET! So: Is that still in the game?? I ask because I know that was from much much earlier in the dev process than where the team is now. & the 2nd Question: Could you PLEASE keep that insane Grenade power as an option in the game after it has been completed or as a cheat that can be unlocked some how, because it TRULY adds a WICKED & Dark sense of humor to the game, not to mention that it's just plain FUN to have weaponry that powerful on hand! Thanks for reading!! & keep up the EXCELLENT WORK!!

First off, my hat to the developers and everyone involved in the creation of this game. I really enjoyed watching the sound guys crush fruit and use Pro Tools to capture the sound. In fact, I think your sound team did an EXCELLENT job, and coming grom a recording and mixing engineer, I can say I appreciate the work your team did.

However, I have a couple of questions to throw at you and was wondering if you could answer them.

1. Are you satisfied with the targeting icon/recepticle? The reason I ask this is because IMHO, it doesn't gel with the rest of the game. You have a very unique character mowing down people people with a glaive and various weapons, but the only thing used to do it is a circle? Everything else about the game is unique and stands out, but that is something that just makes the game appear generic in some aspects.

2. Are you satisfied with the enemy A.I.? GoW and the MGS series have good A.I., and so does CoW4, Crysis and the Tom Clancy stuff (there goes that plain circle recepticle thingy again.)

In conclusion, I've been telling everyone I know about this game, and this looks like a sure hit. You've guys gone the route of letting the game talk instead of hyping it up and watching it flop (Killzone?) I look forward to playing it soon, and I hope everything works out.

p.s. One of the *best* things you can do as a company is speak with the fans and would be customers. Some developers refuse to do this, but I justed wanted to say thanks for going the "KEEPIN IT REAL" route and speaking with everyone.

maikel but in europe it's coming out earlier!! 25.01 according to IGN!

Now a question for the dev's, the game looks amazing taking one thing apart, I noticed that there's quite frame loss, are you guys working on that?

mandood said...

I've noticed that in the new videos the "Head Crush" finisher isn't exactly crushing their head anymore just breaking their neck or something. Just saying I hope that their head still explodes. Other then that everything else in the game looks better and better.

Jontxu said...

Ánimo que queremos comprar el juego cuanto antes!! Tiene una pinta estupenda. A ver si al final supera al Resident 4!!! Teneis un comprador desde Spain!

Juan said...

Hello!
I would like that you were putting images of the artistic concepts, I would like to see especially the one (big black one!) that infects the protagonist.
Regards!

dmc is cool to

Mark said...

You guys are doing a great job, and I've noticed a more and more positive reaction to the game from other forum dorks, so thats great.

Could you guys release some more concept art for the game? you have some great pieces on the official site, but they're too small. I especially liked the one of the infected character, but again its pretty small, would greatly appreciate a larger version.

Thanks

Keep up the great work.
