Man this was great. One of my biggest concerns was whether there were going to be day time levels in the game. I mean, when you have an engine and game this beautiful, it would have just been a total shame to not have day light levels as well, and so i'm really glad there will be!

OMG Gears of war only 50% complete and using only 1 X360 core and it looks better than all fake sony demos lol.
Commented on 2005-09-24 11:32:33
Yeh, only one core and it looks so good!
I don't even want to imagine what would happen if they used all cores. :p

The game seems to shaping up really well, they got some really cool mechanics and they are really trying hard to make the gameplay stand out.

Good read, kudos to all who helped make the interview, thanks Blim for the info.

This game sounds like so much fun. Not only to play but to actually work on aswell!

yeah i like the bit where he talks about other aspects of the game, like the day time, puzzle, monsters, and vehicles...i was getting a bit too one minded about this game since the footage that they ahve shown has all bin the same nighttime against the same enemies

The only thing that could happen once they use those other cores is hopefully a silky smooth frame rate
Commented on 2005-09-24 18:20:21
Locked 30fps is silky smooth.

He basically told you right there that they dont want 60fps and if they get it they will add more effects and bring it down to 30.

Which is absolutely perfect for a game like this, if you're running about firing all over the place you're going to be dead in seconds anyway!

very nice
Commented on 2005-09-25 03:49:20
the best 360 game i think and only one 360 core being used sweet but will all the cores be used in the final version of the game or are they going to add a core every time they make a new gears of war game lol

We’re planning the game point A to point B start to finish; my goal is to make it entertaining and worth $50.

ha this is only going to be 50 dollars mabye all games will be like that

Great interview.
I don't think that 3 cores will be not possible at this ealier lifetime of the x360.
Nontheless I will pick it up when it hits the shelf. Lots of great games for our next console.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Maybe they'll use trophies incentivise it? "Brushed horse 2000 times - bronze trophy" "Wrapped up warm 5000 times - silver trophy" (22 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog if it doesn't make much difference it's great from my perspective, so that would be ideal. But its going to make it hard to convince people to do it if the rewards aren't worth the tedium of it. (24 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think they kind of need to make the negatives of not doing it impactful out of necessity otherwise it undermined the entire thing. (27 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @AndreasZ94: I don't see any reason to incorporate the survival systems if they aren't impactful though. If you NOT eating or NOT drinking doesn't really make any difference, why include it at all? (28 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 After rdr2 i hope they start trying new ips again (47 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 If this game sucks im gonna be very sad. Loved the first one, I ve waited 8 years for a sequel and its been 5years sincethe last rockstar game.No in between games like la noir,mp3 so it better be good (52 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @KORNdog: Obviously it depends, even if its done well im sure some will still find it tedious. But like the camp stuff making it optional was the right move because this game will havea broad audience (1 Hour ago)
