PS2: Game Developers Conference demo...OMFG!

Postby dirtYbird » Wed Mar 07, 2012 11:17 am

So the PS2 presentation to invited guests and the press has concluded at the GDC.
There has been a number of tweets from the event including a few grainy looking images.
Hopefully there will be some video footage very soon.

Did come across the following site that is hosting some images of the game I have not seen before.
It also includes some artwork.
Check it out. http://www.vg247.com/2012/03/07/quick-s ... er-sci-fi/
Very impressive.

Firefall will be shitty though with international latency IMO. Planetside at least dealt with that via local hit detection. It’d be too much to hope for local servers – but damn that would good.
Anyone else feel all patriotic seeing those NC running around? And how mad was that Galaxy model?
So NC4LYFE. Im liking that the base complexes are big and complicated. Would be so awesome all being together again for this.

The cell shading in Firefall doesnt grab me too much but I guess it does make it easier for consoles.
I remember having this discussion with Jules a couple of years ago when I think Goraz first mentioned the game.

I was looking thru the list of PS1 names in the outfit, I'm not sure many of them probably even play on the PC any more.
We use to run with Glory Hunters and Johari's Finest back in the day.
I noticed Hangfire registered here the other day and I am sure he was originally with GH and Tigeraif is still around afaik.
I'm sure the likes of Ady and Drac will play it but Santa and Smedly and a host of others that I have not seen around for years probably arent even aware of the games existence.

Glory Hunters are deep into EQ2 afaik.
http://gloryhunters.org/
I didnt see any of the names from PS1 apart from Anzak and maybe Toker.
Probably forgotten most of them over the years but we had some good times in PS1 with them.
Acaila
Acer
Bleas
Dilligaf
Dyngo
Intercept
Jellybean
Phoebus
Redsox
Reefer
Sageau
SargeJ
Tigeraif
And Epi was also in GH. /wave


An indecisive answer in regards to vehicle hacking.
Tramell Ray Isaac: Basically jacking? It’s up for debate right now. It’s two different camps inside the building. Like, “Do we want jacking? How do you advance if you jack somebody’s vehicle?" It’s all because the cert tree actually goes based on the vehicle that you currently have in your faction. If I go steal a Vanguard and I’m on VS side, what happens? That’s the debate right now internally; some people want it, some people don’t.

Quickly jumped back into PS1 to see if it would still accept my login details...success! The animations look very dodgy, and there was even some base battles occurring.

I'm definitely back in for PS2, I'm actually old enough to have cash/credit cards now to support the habit. Missed out on a lot in PS1 :(

I never played PS1 and only had a slight interest in PS2 until Db posted these vids.
Looks pretty sweet. I've signed up now :)

I just dont understand how vehicle jacking can even be up for debate. Its right up there with sliced bread and breathing oxygen.

Beta will dictate a lot, TRay repeatedly says that.
They have listened to the community for a few things so maybe if "we" voice our opinion enough they will listen and put it in.
Even if its via skill trees etc.


Couple more videos from after the event.
These are "Community Q&A Via Reddit"
Probably not a great deal of info in them and neither of them have any game footage.
But they do cover one or two things that I had not heard much about previously.




Interview with TRay by ClevverGames
He did another interview with some chick from Curse but she was too distracting imo.

Power to the people?
Lots of people said they didnt like the kill cam idea they saw in the demo and there was a large thread over at PSU about it.

re: killcam I'd like to build it to be a UI w/ 3d view of your killer (not in world) and shows stats like the LoL "death recap". -@mhigby

The killcam in the game right now is not the intended final implementation. We ALMOST removed them for the demo, actually. -@mhigby

When did this pseudo news thing start?

Of course I'll be in for PS2 action. Used to play it with with Acaila, Jellybean and Kane till dawn back when I was a uni bum. Good times.

Only thing that worries me about PS2 is cash shop being pay to win.

In reference to the Pay to Win concern.

Shacknews interview wrote:Sony Online Entertainment's ambitious massively multiplayer FPS PlanetSide 2 will be free-to-play. But, how will SOE make money?

Microtransactions, of course! However, creative director Matt Higby reassured us that the game won't be "pay-to-win." At Game Developers Conference last week, Higby promised that "anything that affects gameplay, such as grenades or medkits or implants that give you additional power within the game, will be exclusively unlocked via [in-game] resources."


Higby says that while upgrades will be free, PS2 will also offer "sidegrades," a term Higby repeatedly used during his presentation. A "sidegrade" would allow for a different play style, but isn't necessarily more powerful. To illustrate the concept, Higby talked about how one gun could fire less powerful ammo more rapidly, or more powerful ammo less frequently--the net damage would be about the same. "Things like sidegraded weapons that don't give you more power will be a split between Station Cash and in-game resources," Higby noted.

However, one part of the PlanetSide 2 in-game store won't accept in-game currency. "All the cosmetic stuff will be Station Cash-only," Higby added. Such is the price of vanity, no?

Still, it remains to be seen just how it will work in game.

Matt Higby has a new video up from the GDC and in it he explains a bit about the game.
A guided tour to celebrate their Alpha milestone.
The footage is not completely new but looks ok for the uninitiated.
