GC05: King Kong presentation

GC05: King Kong presentation

Michel Ancel himself was at the Game Convention yesterday to show his very big baby King Kong at the Ubisoft press conference. I have to admit that even if the graphics are obviously based on the PS2 version, I have been really impressed by this game. The gameplay sequence with King Kong was really amazing thanks to how well you feel the power of the king of Skull Island. Another thing worth mentioning is that Michel Ancel also confirmed us that they would try to get the Xbox 360 version out before the end of the year, and that their goal for this version was to get the graphics as close as possible to the movie.

Why is he working on this game then? It really doesn't fit his style ...
He should be designing new creative games! :P

    Sdarts Oh, yeah, I just remembered. Papers, Please does something similar as well. Puts you in an unconfortable position. (14 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Spec Ops: The Line does something similar, and I wish more games put you on that spot. Try to make you think: "WTF do I do?" and etc. (14 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Decisions like that. If the game's story is really good, you actually feel the weight of them and how there's no "win" choice, just worse and even worse choices. Some books and movies try to convey it (14 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: Just hypothetical and nothing to do with the game: Do you blow a school full of children where a terrorist is hiding? Or let him go free to potentially kill thousands more innocents? (14 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: I can't mention the scene in question without spoiling, but one option was almost impossible and the other was "easy" to do, but the "easy" one was something "monstrous". So values. (14 Hours ago)
