Alone in the Dark: Fire

Alone in the Dark: Fire

Atari released this new technical demo/trailer of the very promising Alone In The Dark, showcasing the fire effects of the game. It sure looks impressive, even with this very bady encoded video.

Wait, this one's first person? Ugh, and here I was thinking it'd have the classic camera angles. Count me out.

Awesome, can't wait for this game!

Looks insane, this is true next-gen stuff. Gameplay altering innovation, not just gfx.

I've enjoyed these technical demos so far. D/L'ing now.

Yep, the tech demos have been awesome, the gameplay videos have been great, they're planning a demo before the game comes out (which they'll hopefully follow through), and they're even saying it will sell 2-3 million, it sounds like they're pretty confident in the game. Looking forward to it, it's on my short list.

This is the game I'm looking out for the most (besides GTAIV). The real-life rules are simply amazing. The look of the game is just great. I have already pre-ordered the limited edition!!! Just can't wait.

the game looks great. You can play it in first or third person view.

and calm down guys, no need to be so rude!

Is the narrator wearing a retainer or something? That lisp was so distracting. xD

I did watch the video, and once I saw the FPS perspective I closed it. Normally they don't switch the perspective halfway.

That stuff isn't going to float here.

Loving these vids. That scene with the main character being inside a burning building having to extinguish the fire is a very interesting take on "scaring" people.

Not a lot more scarier situations than that, and if well excecuted it can create some highly intense gameplay. Very impressive!

About the game

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog [url] so cool (21 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog hellblade and ryse both had way more basic combat that literally just centered around weak and strong attacks. there was nothing else there to play around with. (24 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and then you have the boy, who distracts, staggers and sets you up for more volleys. now compare that to hellblade or ryse...and you honestly can't see the difference? (26 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog then you've got the elements associated with the axe itself, where you can freeze enemies (and i assume other elements will be introduced later too) and do powered up elemental attacks (27 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog there seem to be a decent depth to the combat in god of war. with staggers, shield barges, slow mo air juggles, grabs, axe throws, and standard hacking. (29 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: if you think that looks like ryse then i really don't know what to tell you. doesnt look anything like ryse or hellblade to me outside of a camera angle. (30 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @alimokrane: agree, if the enemy variety is there as well it could be an awesome combat system, especially for an over the shoulder camera game. Camera does zoom out for larger fights btw (1 Hour ago)
