Condemned 2 Interview

Condemned 2 Interview

When we were at Sega's to see some Condemned 2 gameplay, we spent some quality time with Constantine Hantzopoulos, game's producer. That guy is completely nuts, and the game already looks awesome (first condemned fan here). Lots of things unveiled, such as the entirely updated combat system, the brand new, non-linear forensics gameplay and the hard times in the making of Condemned 1. We also talked about a new game mode called "Hobo fight club", a possible multiplayer mode, the "Manhunt 2"-gate on Wii and maybe some more things I'm forgetting. A must see if have any interest for that game.

I get the impression he actually runs a "Hobo Fight Club" in an old warehouse.

Rock on France! I guess he didn't know you guys are international (or that your audience is anyway).

Game is sounding good though. Online multiplayer could be really interesting.

Seems like a cool guy and knows what he wants in his game. Can't wait to get my hands on it. The first one blew me away.

Seeing as you saw the game, can you expand a bit more on your impressions?

Great interview.
Those finishing moves and attack dogs sounds awesome. Also good to hear they made the CSI stuff more complex.
Hope we get some video footage soon.

Great Interview. The first game was good but it was kind of shallow gameplay wise IMHO and It's good thing to hear that they are taking it to a new level

About the game

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Maybe they'll use trophies incentivise it? "Brushed horse 2000 times - bronze trophy" "Wrapped up warm 5000 times - silver trophy" (19 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog if it doesn't make much difference it's great from my perspective, so that would be ideal. But its going to make it hard to convince people to do it if the rewards aren't worth the tedium of it. (21 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think they kind of need to make the negatives of not doing it impactful out of necessity otherwise it undermined the entire thing. (23 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @AndreasZ94: I don't see any reason to incorporate the survival systems if they aren't impactful though. If you NOT eating or NOT drinking doesn't really make any difference, why include it at all? (24 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 After rdr2 i hope they start trying new ips again (44 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 If this game sucks im gonna be very sad. Loved the first one, I ve waited 8 years for a sequel and its been 5years sincethe last rockstar game.No in between games like la noir,mp3 so it better be good (49 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @KORNdog: Obviously it depends, even if its done well im sure some will still find it tedious. But like the camp stuff making it optional was the right move because this game will havea broad audience (59 minutes ago)
