Gamersyde Diaries: Haze

Gamersyde Diaries: Haze

As you know, Ubidays are now over but we still have a lot of cool things to release, and it's a perfect time for us to try our new version of Gamersyde Diaries. From now on, we will release every Diaries separately, one episode a game, instead of waiting months to gather enough content for a 30 minutes show. The flavor will of course remain the same, even if we changed some little things. So, get used to see Gamersyde Diaries released on a much more regular basis, since this new version is way easier to produce. And let's start righ now with Haze, Free Radical's controversial FPS we've had the chance to see two days ago. Enjoy the show !
Update: 640 version added.

Hey, I like the new way of working, I think it is better too.

As for Haze.........I don't see anything that would make this game anywhere near great. They have A LOT to work for it to get there, because right now it looks way too average for my liking, for the genre.

Cheers for Video and liking new format.

Have to agree Lebato graphics are really poor and for me i see nothing that grabs me people are saying looks as good as Crysis what a load of trollop. As it stands at moment im not really fussed its a PS3 timed exclusive did i read this game was touted to steal some shine from Halo 3. ?

Is there going to be a BIA Diary also. ?

Maybe not a Diary, but you'll have a big fat long 720p video of the presentation, yeah ;)

Awesome thanks for info :)

Very nice, agree that that vehicle section looked poor, the whole orwellian mind control idea is brilliant actually, the game has a lot of potential with such interesting ideas. Hopefully there's not much of those vehicle sections you showed, or at least they improve them.

This game looks SOOOOOOOOOO good!

so, has all that stuff about this being PS3 exclusive for '07, then coming to 360/PC in '08 been confirmed? I don't have a problem with that(if true), much rather play it in '08 anyway. Too many games coming out this Fall and what not.

I doubt Ubi will have this exclusive...timed MAYBE but not full.
I hope it comes out this year with PS3 at the same time. 2008 is gonna have more games becomes most of them have been delayed.

Assassins Creed, DMC4, Dark Sector, Alan Wake...etc.

The ones that is VERY unsure is Mass Effect and Assassins Creed, which is top of my best buy list.

I for one dont care for Haze, as long as it comes out on the 360 soon.

I love the way French people talk it just makes the whole video so much better. I hate watching the IGN round tables and all but when it comes to Gamersyde diaries the French language makes it a lot more interesting and better to watch.

I like this short diary style better.
Haze looks really interesting to me.all those HUD and visor things are cool and visual effects caused by drug looks really nice while vehicle sequence doesn't.
I hope 360 version looks as good as this 'cause i don't have any plan to own PS3.

640 version will be first. The presentation is 13 minutes long so I will only put the better parts in the 720p file.

Very interesting and well done team for the total honesty with reporting.

Really well produced as well... Top marks!

BlimBlim, you're so right, the end of this demo looks so impressive. Like how a drug addict would see it without having the drug anymore. So awesome when you keep that idea in the back of your head.

I've been a fan of GSD since you started doing it.

There is something natural and spontanious - but also artistic and classy - about GSD. Perhaps it's a weird pre-defined notion I have about france and the french language brought on by your movie export, but it still gives the show a cultural authencity that's lacking from big budget, hair product driven slime-fests like IGN's video offerings.

Never resort to speaking english or making it seem more set up. The way reflections of the demo and actual footage on screen matched here made your own experience really powerful for us (me) as viewers, and if that's a result of the snack-sized way of doing the show then that's how it definitely should stay from now on. It's about "mere mortals" reacting to experiences and telling it first hand, and that really worked great here.

I really don't know how to phrase it to make it sound more significant than any other form of compliments I can give, nor can I put suitably cyber ninja powerful adjectives into a sentence that'll act as an appropriate vessel on an expedition into your hearts, Blim, Snoopers, Pipo and everyone else involved with GSD.

The only thing I can resort to is to put it simply and plainly in the hopes that it still carries with it the sincerity and significance I want it to convey;

I think your show is great.

Humm vehicule segment remind me of HL2 LOL! :)

The reason i want this game is for the 4 COOP player thru the actual SP experience. The only other one that have that is RB6V...

holy crap, SimonM7 had a religious experience watching this vid. :P
Commented on 2007-05-26 21:18:28
game looks great, in the first poor quality vid posted there was mention on how war is percieved differently etc etc. and it never really told how that was going to work. but i guess thats what they ment, the suit itself makes the war they're fighting almost glamourized, pretty it up, and then without the visor you see the stark truth, that your killing in a completely gritty dark world. it was very interesting imo. what looked to be a standard FPS (granted a very nice looking one) has just got a whole lot more interesting for me. one im gonna look out for, and if i pick up a ps3 later in the year as i plan to, this will definately be bought along with it. vehicle sections do look a little like the 007 games where its very pre-defined. if your gonna do vehicles, it has to be like halo, where its completely up to the player to use said vehicle in whatever way they like. not "vehicle level number 3" they always feel tacked on.

SimonM7 : Thank you. Really. It's sooo nice getting those sorts of comments on the show. I'm really moved by what you wrote. Thank you again.

This is exactly what I thought ! A badly designed, poor copy of the HL2 rides.
Commented on 2007-05-27 11:35:18
Yeah that was great

I really liked the last level where you take the helmet off and actually see the brutality and disturbing sight of death and killing someone.

Whereas back with the helmet it's like a drug addicts mind, everything is beautiful and no blood happens when you kill people.

Great diary and thanks for that, summed up the game so far.

I really like this approach you guys took with single diaries.

it's better than reading previews, just to watch and get a preview of the game and impressions.

Good stuff!

What a Crysis rip. It's not a big deal that they are using the jungles, but then they had to go with the Crysis abilities too?! damn. How obvious. I'll keep an eye on this anyway.

Great video. Stay cool, guys. And I like your new hair cut, Snoopers.
Commented on 2007-05-27 14:42:50
Nice video.

The honesty at times was so awesome!

I saw some people raving about Haze on a few other forums, but from this I don't particularly see anything amazing. Interesting visual effects though when he had his helmet off.

Haze is nothing special to me
