ugh, he looks & sounds like shit. I mean, ok if they wanted to "reboot" the character a bit, but why on Earth did they change it to this?

Still interested to see how it turns out.

It's not a reboot, Blacklist is a sequel, just like the other games before it. You even encounter the person who led Sam to believe his daughter had died and when he sees fisher, he freaks out. The reason they had to "get rid" of Ironside is that they used performance capture and they needed an actor who could do all the physical stuff as well. The problem is that the actor they chose is in his thirties and you can tell. Sam is older than that so it doesn't work, especially when he's on the phone with his daughter (who is supposed to be in her late twenties if I'm not mistaken). I don't like his new voice either, not because it's not ironside (though I wish he could have done it), but because it doesn't sound right for the character. I might even play the French version for once, they kept Sam's original French voice actor, who also happens to be the one dubbing Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Good stuff!! It's good to see Sam in his sneaking suit, that's the way he should always be. I do miss Ironside already, but i can deal with the change. So long as he does his lines proper i'm not going to complain.

Not to mention, Ironside wanted to stop voicing Fisher after Double Agent, but Ubisoft persuaded him to do one more game.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (17 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (19 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (20 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (22 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (22 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (23 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (24 minutes ago)
