Default Shadows of the DAMNED

http://www.siliconera.com/2010/09/15...of-the-damned/

Quote:
At their press conference in Tokyo today, Electronic Arts finally revealed Shadows of the DAMNED, a psychological action-thriller game about battling demons, as part of their EA Partners program. Or as Suda51 calls it, Shadows of the DAMNED (damned…damned…damned…).

Yes, with the echo. And the uppercase DAMNED. Although, you might just want to use one “damned.” Also, when you abbreviate it, please don’t use “SotD.” Instead, use “DMD.”
Is this any good ? TGS has been rather "explosive" so far. Saw many a fireworks.

Hm, super-shiny and an excessive amount of bloom. Unreal Engine 3 I take it.
Curious how the "psychological" part in this phsychological thriller is gonna work out when you are carrying a mecha-shotgun shaped like a giant skull at one end.

Wow, that was surprisingly generic coming from Suda 51. I mean, what the hell, everything look so disappointing today.

Dev Diary for the game ! Crazy one at that ! Now I am getting interested in it. Its too wacky a concept. Could fall flat on its face or could be an unmissable crazy ride !

and it says June 2011 ! Wow , I didn't know it was so close, I thought its just started development or so !

Frankly speaking the environment and the hero don't seem to gel with thw wackyness ! Garcia looks too serious to be in this crazy concept and the environments are standard stuff ! The only freshness is in the banter between Garcia and the Gun ! Visuals aren't really supporting the craziness at all, I mean u gather strawberries in the game, which are actually made from mashed bits of flesh(or brains), but one look at the game, they just stand out as odd things in a sane world.


Maybe, its only me who sees this, but the visuals aren't really conveying any kind of genius here. Looks like an average AA game/budget title. If I had not seen the gameplay where the Gun keeps talking crazy stuff to Garcia, I wouldn't have been interested at all although it has Akira Yamaoka(his Silent Hill music just melts me !) and Shinji Mikami(RE4 is the only game that can stand up to MGS3, my fav game on the ps2), not to forget Suda 51(I haven't played Killer 7 yet, but I have seen his genius in many games around me).

A walkthrough by IGN. Thankfully the people doing this actually know what they are talking about, know about Shinji, Suda and Yamaoka, so c'mon guys here's a video which won't make you cringe ! BTW, the game is full of references to other games here, the save file's name is "As Evil as Dead" ! So, all the people who keep saying this game feels like Evil Dead, well, the makers know that !

The game is getting 8s and 8.5s allover, except for IGNs 7.

I think Shinji and Suda have hit the sweet spot !

Dude ! Killer 7 ! I think thats the only one where these two were together. I have it for my ps2, but my memory card stopped working and I haven't bothered to get a new one. Its a crazy game from what I played but hooks you instantly.
Otherwise Goichi SUda has recently made "No More Heroes", a demo is up on PSN these days. Shinji is well known enough !

BTW, after trying out Vanquish on a borrowed copy, I am convinced Shinji Mikami is a genius, no matter what ! I just didn't want to put down the controller and the friend had to literally eject the disc and take it away from me !

Don't know who or what Killer 7 is.

I like Vanquish. Short and sweet. Will definitely check out the game then.

Shadows of the Damned Sound Director Akira Yamaoka Talks Audio Influences:
http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/...io-influences/

Quote:
I’m the Sound Director and Chief Creative Officer at Grasshopper Manufacture. Some people may know me from my work on the Silent Hill series, but today I’m here to talk about our latest game — Shadows of the Damned, out now on the PS3.

Music plays an incredibly important role in setting the atmosphere for games, and it’s especially vital in an action-horror game like Shadows of the Damned. When scoring Damned, I tried to imagine tracks that would bring Hell to life for the player and the lead character Garcia. Designing music isn’t always the most transparent task, so in this blog post I want to explain my thoughts behind the creation of a few tracks included in the pre-order bonus soundtrack.

...
I didn't know the game is out. 2011 has way too many games again.

Will try to pick it up next week.

Picked it up over the weekend and I like it. Has a nice Grindhouse style to it.

I firmly believe that no-one would give damn about this game if it wasn't for the Mikami/Suda/Yamaoka branding (little known fact: the game's director is actually a guy named Massimo Guarini). Looks very much like a budget tps to me, with generic fodder enemies and "shoot the glowing weak spot"-bosses. A budget game with a lot of dick jokes for sure, but still a budget game. Not much better than Wet. RE4 minus all the creativity, ingenuity and polish basically.
