the bullet time implimentation sounds retarded. but thankfully i'm not overly bothered by the MP of this game anyway. all about the SP baby. would have prefered co-op over this tbh.

Meh, i cannot get excited about mp in these Rockstar's games.

Give me good sp. If i want TPS mp craziness, prefer to stick with my Gears 3.

agreed, the multi in red dead redemption was such a pain in the ass...I played 1 round and went to the single player.

Give me single player experience please and GTFO with these forced new MP modes in not-needed heavy SP focused games.

A big big shame this comes out on May 15th, would be been a definite buy.

Despite my major concerns about whether this will have that Max Payne magic and atmosphere of the previous games, I have to say that the overall gameplay - including the multiplayer - does seem quite cool.

multiplayer is smooth... makes games like uncahted and gears look bad, and they have great animation.

Looks like GTA3 multiplayer with lame bullet time tacked on, pass!

Sounds an awful lot like what I heard from the Mass Effect camp prior to singing the praises of ME multiplayer. And MP fits this in game pretty dang naturally.

Didn't explain enough about bullet time, sounds confusing.

Like this MP comes as a surprise. It sounds like no one here knows what to expect from games today. This is standard affair, unless a game is designed w MP being it's priority you end up with the same formula. Sometimes it works, sometimes it's fun for a month and most of the time they're not good. To me this looks like GOW or Uncaharted, except for the animations which is what sells me personally. It will be a fun novelty, I'd rather have it then not.

did i just see a dude with a bra on?

Looks like a cluster fuck in all honesty. Maps look smaller than RDR death-match maps.

I do enjoy their 2nd person narrated videos though. Makes it seem more subjective, like a 50s car commercial.

"They did this, that, and this. Once you get your hands on this shit it will blow you away!"

Not one comment praising how Rockstar has managed to implement a feature, which was considered a single player only experience, into multiplayer.

BULLET TIME IS IN MULTIPLAYER!!! I am really excited for this. Of course, since I played MP1 and MP2, I am very looking forward to Single Player too.

Well, I wouldn't get too excited about that just yet.

Their explanation of how it will be implemented fairly was incredibly vague and unclear, and such a feature has the potential to completely upset the balance of the game - on the multiplayer side of things, of course.

reminds me of the multiplayer slow-motion bubbles of Timeshift or Singularity(one of those), if I recall. The thing is that they seem to be invisible and centered on the player... something akin to that?

I am not too interested in MP for this, but it certainly looks like Rockstar are putting the effort in.

As I understand it it's simply about line of sight. So whom ever is in your sights gets caught in the slow-mo. Brake line of sight & you'll loose the slow mo.

Remember RDR's spotting/pre-aim tagging? When I first played RDR, I immediately thought of Max Payne 1 and possible bullet time. I think they're simply using the same mechanics.

Wouldn't be surprised if it's the same deal. What makes me on the fence about the multi in general is how small the maps might be.

I just want to try it regardless. I'm not expecting a MP game that I keep coming back to for years or anything.. but it could be fun.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I checked again, their last broadcast is about 32 minutes and is about the Keep. The one after is from oct 20. (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: It's going to be the X1 version for me. Hopefully we get to zoom in on characters too. Skyrim and Fallout 3 have that, you can zoom in/out and keep the cam there. (7 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts DICE helped them a lot with the Frostbite 3 engine and they were able to push the visuals beyond BF4 in some aspects, like the water effects. And it really shows. Too much excited to wait till Nov 18. (7 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The camera automatically zooms out when entering combat and zooms in after, but you can change the FOV with the mouse wheel. The visuals look amazing on PC, much more than on PS4 and XBO. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: To access the archived livestream videos, click on BioWare and then on Past Transmissions. Today they showed a new region and a new story quest (but very early, so almost no spoilers). (8 Hours ago)
  • Sath
    Sath Main Theme from Lords of the Fallen [url] sounds great to me, kind of getting that Witcher style vibe. (10 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I watched the X1 stream again, parts of it, i really hope so much that on console we can zoom on the character and lock it too, it totally kills immersion when camera is so far away. (11 Hours ago)
