New PS3 Exclusive First Look

#1 Posted by Aegon (5852 posts) -

It's a teaser . 
  

   
It should be fully revealed at the 10th. It says "you won't believe". Is that just pure hype?

Random calamity footage with Bastion style narrator.

They ain't done good.

Edit: Hope it's not turning into another post apocalypse or zombie game. Pretty tired of that setting.

That any video on the site shows what it is.  Some kinda infection that takes over people bodies.

Got a Walking Dead vibe from it, and that text sure does look like the one used for the TV show.

Here's hoping it's not another shooter.

#6 Posted by Optix12 (625 posts) -

On the website theres a date, "12.07.11" Odds are its probably a trailer for a cockroach scuttling across a debris filled room very very fast.

That said I hope its a complete new IP (could this potentially rule out that sony smash fighter rumour as I dont see a relation of end of days to sony characters battling it out

I still want a realistic-ish Zombie game that is actually about survival and has slow moving Zombies.

#8 Posted by Gabriel (4082 posts) -

Hope it's not another zombie game, could be a new Syphon Filter which dealt with end of the world viruses and the CDC.

#9 Edited by BraveToaster (12588 posts) -

I was expecting a "first look".

Edit: After watching the video of the ants, I'm assuming the parasites that eat ant brains evolve into human brain-eating parasites.

#10 Posted by Aegon (5852 posts) -

Hmmm, this is just speculation, but Keighley retweeted this from Cliffy B " If I showed up onstage at Spike what do you think I'd announce? vgas" a couple hours before revealing the trailer. Don't know if it's related, but it sounds like Cliffy is planning something unexpected. 

#11 Posted by Village_Guy (2667 posts) -

Game is called "Last of Us"

Looks like it will be either some kind of post-apocalyptic game or more in style of I Am Alive (maybe with zombies or infected)

Redwood Falls - > Until Dawn -> Lastofus

1 Corinthians 12:7-11

New International Version (NIV)

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

Revelation 12:7-11

English Standard Version (ESV)

Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world— he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.

Hebrews 12:7-11

New International Version (NIV)

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

That's all I could find, probably just the date it will be announced or something.

So, it's another apocalypse with some kind of parasite thing. Hope it's something more than a simple shooter.

#15 Posted by MightyDuck (1524 posts) -

@Gabriel: I'm still waiting for a PS3 Syphon Filter.

Although, I don't see it happening.

#16 Edited by Mopsical (26 posts) -

Bits of info:

#1: The game is supposedly first-party (SCEA), which is proven by the existence of the ant trailer (from their website) on their database There's also tons more theory on where this is coming from on a NEOGAF thread- which is crazy.

#2: That ants in that trailer aren't just random ants, they have cordyceps... just watch the video it's taken from:

Geoff Keighley is presenting some pretty insane hyperbole on this. Really hope it's that awesome.

EDIT: YouTube tags for the trailer: "cordyceps" "humanity" "end of civilisation" "martial law" "survival" "riots"

#17 Posted by Aegon (5852 posts) -
@Mopsical: So it's a cordycep that specializes in humans? I think that means that this ISN'T A ZOMBIE SHOOTER....RIGHT? Although seeing human bodies with fungus growing out of it would be horrifying. 
#18 Posted by Captain_Felafel (1602 posts) -

Announcer thing seems a little shameless but I'll reserve judgement until we actually know what the heck the game even is. Oh teasers...

http://www.relyonhorror.com/articles/what-could-have-been-redwood-falls/

There’s no horror in an enemy that dies with one shot, but the infected are unlike any you’ve ever met before; you can blow holes in their flesh and hack off their limbs, but the flesh grows back. Headshots won’t kill them and decapitation will only slow them down. To defeat these enemies, you are going to have to ge tup close and personal. Bear traps, aces, Molotov Cocktails and Petrol cans are the order of the day. Cut them up and burn what’s left–if you want to survive, you’re going to have to get bloody.”

Now where have we seen those gasmasks?

This idea has terrified me since I first learned about them. I wouldn't be surprised if someone else felt the same and thought it would make a good horror game. Its an interesting idea to take something that really exists (as opposed to a made up zombie virus) and turn it into something scary.

My only worry is how they could turn this into a game without just making it a zombie game with yet another contrived reason for the deformed crazies trying to kill you with their teeth

#24 Posted by jakob187 (21780 posts) -

@Mopsical: The code for the page itself has SCEA specifically in it, further confirming that it is a first-party game.

#25 Posted by N7 (3684 posts) -

So it's a survival horror FPS with similar ties to The Thing?
 
I. AM. IN.

#26 Posted by JudgeDread (572 posts) -

"Here's the interesting part of the whole deal. The Youtube account hosting the teaser trailer was created in 2006. Whatever game this is, it's been in the works for a LONG time."

Redwood Falls was announced first in 2006

Exclusively on: PlayStation 3

#27 Posted by jakob187 (21780 posts) -

Here's the question: they are saying "an announcement that you won't believe". Well, if it's Redwood Falls, then this is the first I've heard about the game...so what do I care about it? That's not "something I won't believe". That's something I don't give a shit about.

#28 Posted by Vegetable_Side_Dish (1733 posts) -

FPS with zombies, got it.

the wont believe thing will probably be regarding ingame technology. Regenerating cell AI and that stuff they touted as major features in the game.

After watching that Redwood Falls gameplay, I'm excited. That actually looked pretty good.

#31 Posted by Gabriel (4082 posts) -

That Redwood falls looks like a cross between the Thing, and uh...Dreamcatcher.

#32 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5111 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: Troy Baker with a southern accent should sound like this. That's got to be him.

#33 Posted by N7 (3684 posts) -
@Gabriel: That was exactly my reaction. I was like "Man, this seems like The Thing and, what's the movie's name... Dreamcatcher!"
#34 Posted by face15 (1306 posts) -

Well if it's a PS3 exclusive hopefully it will be good. Sony usually gets behind it's exclusives.

#35 Posted by shermanatorek (114 posts) -

@AlexanderSheen: Sounds like the narrator in Bastion.

#36 Posted by BraveToaster (12588 posts) -

@Daybreakx said:

Its not Redwood falls + there are no Zombies in it. And its DEFINITELY worth the hype, it is amazing.

The trailer is all in engine and the graphics resemble PS4 quality.

Yes, PS4 quality graphics. It's good to know we have Giant Bomb members from the future.

#37 Posted by Gabriel (4082 posts) -

Tony Hawk tweeted something about being at the VGA's, I'd damper my excitement guys.

Or expand it?

#38 Posted by Theworldbreaker (173 posts) -

I was realy hoping i would like it, but now as i see more comments about it probrably being a zombie game, which makes sense, i

m starting to not look forward to it...

FUCK ZOMBIES over used and overrated just like that stupid "i took an arrow to the knee" joke.

It's three days away. No matter what he's saying, we have virtually no wait time.
 
I'm rather excited either way.
