Yeah, that's promising for sure.


Notice how I can belittle your beliefs without calling you names. It's a useful skill to have particularly where you aren't allowed to call people names. It's a mistake to get too drawn in/worked up. I mean it's not life or death, it's just two guys posting their thoughts on a message board. If it were personal or face to face all the usual restraints would be in place, and we would never have reached this place in the first place. Try to remember that.

So you are now dissing 1988 classics here, seminal RPGs? Or the sad Pool of Radiance 2: Ruins of Myth Drannor?

 

I am confused, as the title of neither is in plural, so I have to assume that you are referring to both. In which case I'll have to call "heretic". :p


You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

No, it doesn't. PoR is actually old enough that a ~ DAO engine remake might be interesting. :)

Ken, what can you say about the action aspect of this game?

I am celebrated justly for being an advocate of free-form, open-world gaming because it is a lot of fun. As well as being a warrior, a mage and a thief, I'm really a pilgrim in the games that I go through. It's that pilgrim's interest or tourist's interest, in just wandering around and seeing everything and playing around with things, that was the thing that brought me the excitement of working on The Elder Scrolls projects. And in many ways they probably have defined the standard for any large, vast, narrative single-player role-playing game that will be an award-winner or best-seller. But we have already done that and I wanted to find some other place where we could be distinct and special and I have always had a lingering sense that RPGs are in some way hampered by their tabletop and PC-based, turn-based past. They are comfortable with being slow-paced and being comfortable with requiring you to go look at your character page or look at your character interface in a PC game or to have to fuss with all those things.

 

What I really wanted was the same kind of action immersion that you get in other games where if you are skateboarding, you are skateboarding. You're not checking your interface to see if you have the right gear on to be skateborading. You are in that moment. ... You'd think it wouldn't be so hard. You just take an action game and then adapt it to an RPG. But if you look at an action game, they almost always have very simple worlds that you are moving through, levels and levels specifically designed to certain aspects of the character. So the player doesn't really have that much choice. He is going through a maze and he is not improvising. Whereas the soul of role-playing games is defining your own character and being whoever you want to be and customizing yourself. So the challenge was finding something that would allow us to have the experience of an action-adventure game but sill have the complexity, richness and customization of a RPG.

I missed quite a lot of things in Oblivion compared with Morrowind, one of which is these simple and humble pilgrim quests although I know he is using it as analogy. Oblivion lost quite a lot of these PnP feel in Morrowind.

System Shock 3 kthxbye.

That would probably be Dead Space 2, no?

 

As for SS3, maybe wait until DX3 gets released and copy the good parts from that?

Dead Space is pretty damn far from System Shock. Definitely doesn't feel the same.

 

And you all know a System Shock 3 would be dumbed down and stupid. Or wind up like XCOM and be completely different from the first two.


"Alright, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade - make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

I wasn't implying that Dead Space 2 would be System Shock 3, but that the horror game would be DS2.

 

Just keep Ken Levine away from it or we'll get a nihilist utopia in space starring the bastard son of SHODAN

and Tommy

If it was Bioshock in space with a decent story, sure. As things seem to be going, he'll just rip off all his previous stories again,
