Mafia 2 gets a first dev diary

Mafia 2 gets a first dev diary

To keep you busy until our good friend Ghost_Deus is done with the writing of our Mafia 2 preview, here is a first dev diary 2K Games just sent us. The game has been officially announced for a late August release so we are bound to hear more and more about this highly-anticipated title.
MAJ: English version of the trailer available.

Yeah ok, why don't you just stay there then while you're at it. :)

By the way, how come the crappy quality of GT's video does not kill videos for you?

I'm just wondering why they still have these things embedded in their videos over here at Gamersyde. It's pretty much become an international outlet by now. Having french dubs and the like only alienates those expecting the default media releases. If we have the option to switch languages as far as the main webpages go, why not have the same option for videos?

Do you guys think you're the only ones coming here? Maybe we could also just forget about the English side and stop writing in English? Then you would be able to brush up on your French. Be a little tolerant, French people don't bitch about the lack of subtitles when they are none.

I can't believe you guys, moaning for such futile things... Gosh. I mean it's just subtitles... Funnily enough, nobody complained when the Gamersyde Diaries were subtitled in English for you. \o/

Update: I just realized that the cutscenes are in French and you were talking about the dubs, which I had no idea in the first place. We've been having so many negative comments just becasue of the subs that I assumed it was just about them. :/

The reason why we got the French version is that we are a French based site and this is what we are sent. But we will do our best to find the English version ASAP so you guys can understand what's being said. But the silver lining is that the cutscenes become spoiler free. :p

But well, that being said, we put so much effort in providing you with content (including making our own videos in English all the time without having anyone complain about it on the French side) that we find it a bit unfair that some would complain the second something is not the way they want it to be.

Well it just seems inconsistent to me. Either have it one way or the other. I'm Dutch myself so uh ya. Wouldn't English be easier for everyone? Pretty much every gamer knows his or her English these days. At least that's what I'd like to hope.

Just my two cents.

The French don't speak English like you guys, they just suck (and believe me, I know what I'm talking about ^^). The reason we almost always get the English videos is we have you in mind.

But sometimes, the publishers send us the French version and, when we don't have the English one, we prefer to put it online anyway so you can see it right away. We always add the English version a bit later so you don't feel left out.

So, ok, next time, you just won't see the news before it's available in English.

Well, I for one am very thankful that this site considers the English the way that it does. 90% or more of all its content is in english which is peculiar considering that this is a french site. I think you guys work hard. I have been working on speaking other languages, but I wish I could speak french. Some of us do appreciate it.

Game owns Heavy Rain in it's own game. Whine about that and not the french dub, for god sake.

man those that didn't care for GTA4 and it's more "limiting" realistic stance are going to hate this... a game thats very focus is offering up a real world with real rules attached to it.

I personally can't wait. The story in the first one was a prime example of how to set a persistant, and interesting, narrative pace in an open world setting. I still have fond memories of the shoot out in the old barn, dead of night, rain crashing down.

Having sexy times is all the rage in games these days.. i wonder i've we'll get to make sweet music with another cross-eyed girlfriend...

About the game

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (9 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (9 Hours ago)
