More on The Outsider

David Braben (co-creator of the "Elite" series) is ambitious about his next big production.
Here goes the official info: The President has been assassinated, Washigton DC is under martial law, and ex-CIA operative John Jameson is the most wanted man alive. Framed for a crime he didn't commit, he finds himself fleeing from the might of the US Government.

Looks Interesting. Nice story. THATS ALL I CAN SAY.

looks very good graphically, if not a little bland with fairly dull environments, but i guess this doesnt really show much yet. Is this a third person shooter?
Commented on 2006-08-15 17:54:12
I cant say much. The Video is soo short and there is no sound. It's not even a 1MB trailer.

Why does this game look so finished, even though it's still in development? This is proof that some of the developers take their games seriously while others hope to make a quick dollar by releasing crap to some irresponsible buyer. You don't have to be the most reknown developer to make a potential triple A title.

Yes by seeing a few screenshots of a game and watching a 10 second trailer you can tell if a game is finished or not.

Well somebody's been watching 24.;) Scenes are probably pre-rendered.

"only" for PS3?

Damn, now I like that story. This game looks fantastic BTW, good stuff.

It isn't actually....It's usually the other way around (titles for both PS3 and X360 appear as X360 exclusives) so it's odd to see this mistake.

Anyway comments on this game: Too many clones in one screen!!
What is this TWIN TOWN??

Or maybe it's related to the story...They really should give us some idea on gameplay and more on the story.

I never said it was PS3 or even X360 exclusive, where did you see that? O_o
This game is to be released on both game consoles, so there will be no jalous ;)
And about the clone aspect, I personnally think of it as a way to reduce the memory comsuption on the hardware, look at the number of objects in the scene, if it was to run on a PC, then at least 1 Go of RAM + 256 MB of DRAM would be necessary to render at this 720p resolution.

It is not a trailer, it is only a glimpse at the game visuals in movement ;)

Well, I like the idea of the game a lot. Kind of Clancy-esque. And looks beautiful. Hope it turns out good.
Commented on 2006-08-16 01:54:23
Haha that scare almost made me think about pre ordering PS3.
Commented on 2006-08-16 03:11:07
The choice of the president getting assassinated, or becoming a giant on-the-run mech, destroying everything in his path... Hmm. I choose the latter:

Seriously though looks good. Animation looks a bit stiff but otherwise.

That was put so nicely.

I like the promo pictures, but I don't see anything outstanding in the 3 seconds that really showed the game.

Looks huge and open ended.

Story sounds good, if the game can nail the tense and chase feel..i'm sold

Dear 'altares', with this news not being published on the Xboxyde, one might get the idea that this is PS3 exclusive.
A bit late and pointless reply but incase you read it you see how that assumption can be made.

He said it 'looks' finished. As in, these screens and the short movie could pass for being from the finished, released game.

I think it looks good. Its the most believeable non-real DC i've seen. The lighting and shadowing is very good. But the draw distance does seem fairly short in places. Only 500 metres or so in pic 5 before it blurs out into a background texture.

If the trailer is realtime I'll faint

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (1 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (4 Hours ago)
