I'm hoping that this game is developed with the utmost care like Riddick for Xbox was. I'm pretty sure by now Vin Diesel knows what a good game should look and play like. I'm just not so sure about Midway though.

In the second screen Vin is looking like he has just smoked a damn good reefer. Police car rams him, and he is just looking like nothing is going on lol.
Riddick was not a game made by Vin Diesel, but by starbreeze. But Midway is not famous for triple A games if you know what I mean.

Saw the gameplay vids with commentary and couldn't help but burst in to laughing as the dev mentioned how they had created this "living breathing city"...with like a handfull of people walking around in that empty/bland/dull "city". Seriously, we're not that blind!

The cars look just like tin cans.

And it looks like their is an old iron gathering under vin's car hood.

looks really boring. These kind of games and FPS makes game industry worse.

Why do FPS games make the game industry worse? Diversity is what I like. So FPS games have the right to be there. It's not because you don't like FPS, that there shouldn't be any. I don't like RTS, but I don't care if they exist.

See the obvious retardation fo this statement is that the reason Riddick was great was NOT Vin Diesel. It was because starbreeze is a competent developer. Midway's way of making a game is much like putting a turd in a dvd case and squeezing it shut. At least that's what pops in to my ehad every time i try one of their horrid games. And just cause the modeled the lead after a second rate actor hardly makes the game potentially good in any way.

Just for the record Vin Diesel did make his strongest piece of acting EVER in Escape from butchers bay though. Kudos for that...i guess.

people are influenced by what happens around them, these devs where influenced by FPS so thats what they know how to make

Wow, retardation, quite the harsh insult directed to me. Listen, I and many others already know that Riddick was developed by a different company, which is why I'm concerned that this game is being developed by Midway(which is what I previously pointed out).

But also saying that Vin Diesel didn't help at all with Butcher Bay is false. One more thing, I could care less how much you hate Vin Diesel, but try not to direct your hate for him at other people.

Contra: yeah i'm sure that Vin went in there, took control of all the pale nerds and just dominated production of the game.

Honestly, why do you think Vin Diesel had anything to do with Butchers bay just cause he voiced Riddick? It'd be like claiming that Patric Stewart had a mayor role in deving oblivion or Toby Mcguire is to blame for the shitty Spider-Man games. It's just stupid.

Please do tell what Vin did to help make Butcher's bay if you have some concrete facts though. As far as i'm concerned he's a voice actor, cause that's all he was ever credited for afaik.

Also i didn't call you a retard, i called this particular idea of Vin having anything to with the game, other than the voice and appearance, retarded. But like i said, if you know something that i don't, then please do enlighten me.

Oh and yeah really... Vin WE WANT Riddick game sequel not some stupid action game...

Johnny: Uhuh? Then how do you explain how Pitch Black is decent at best and The Chronicles of Riddick sucks donkey nuts while the game rocks? Also Mikael Säker is credited as head writer of the game along with a bunch of other guys who seemingly has nothing to do with riddick other than the game...hmmm. As far as i can tell the the only thing Mr. Diesel (and by extension Tigon) had to do with butchers bay is distribution, which they didn't even do on their own either as it turns out Vivendi had a hand to play in it (my guess would be Vivendi did most of the work).

So what we've established so far is this:
*Starbreeze Wrote the story.
*Starbreeze designed and coded the game.
*Tigon/Vivendi published it.

Yes, Mr. Diesels endeavors in the gaming world seem to be stunning feats indeed. He licensed himself to vivendi and then voiced himself in the resulting game! He must be a superb game designer to accomplish that. No doubt about it.

Oh man. Play nice children. My god, one of you hates the S.O.B. bad enough to carry on, and the other is falling all over him. How bout we talk about the game, not the bloody voice actor. My god, show some intelligence please.

And regardless of who is right your both twits.

Game looks ok. Might have some decent gameplay from what I've seen. Have to wait and see I guess.

This game isn't being developed by the same people who made butchers bay they (starbreeze) are indeed busy developing a new riddick game.

There is no debate over who is right, starbreeze developed the game http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Chronicles_of_Rid...

I just get somewhat upset when a jackass is given credit for talented peoples work, that's all. I'd be equally upset if someone claimed David Hayter was the "genius" behind MGS or any other similar scenario, this has nothing to do with Vin Diesel directly.

Also this game looks mediocre at best. When a trailer, a movie clip existing only to excite, fails to look exciting the game itself is bound to be BAD.

Baku: Aren't starbreeze making dark athena? Or is that some other company? If they are indeed making wholly new Riddick game then i will be very much so exited ^^

Come on people, this is not an insulting site like gametrailers. So just cool down and be polite and mature in responses. I like this site because it's a real gamers site that loves games.

ok this just pisses me off!! every single time two cars bump into each other in high sped the dev guys focus on all the splatter,metal and spark bullshit.. but look at the people in the cars!!! they're acting like nothing is even happening... fuck that shit..
next gen developing should be about bringin more dtail into the characters behaviour..

  • Tiz
    Tiz I love em both to be honest. When I start playing either of them, I'm glued for a while albeit for different reasons. (3 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (7 minutes ago)

    Tiz As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (11 minutes ago)
