I decide to do my own photo gallery of playstation home, using in game camera. Here's my first pic.
After writing my previous Site For Sounds Blog for Red Dead Redemption. It reminded me of a previous film I made about 2 years ago. I really like this personally cause of the ambient sounds I mixed in.
Ironically my producer/co-director/writer wanted to call the movie “The Proposition.” At the time he wrote this script he never heard about the John Hilton feature film with the same title.I saw the Red Dead Redemption Short Movie on Giantbomb. I liked it, it was fun to see the cutscenes differently.
Anyways, we just made this film for fun, no reward or contest. Write a comment if you'd like.WARNING: This has harsh language and drug use.
100% .... I actually 100% the single player for Red Dead Redemption (on Xbox 360). I could honestly say this is probably one of my personal greatest gaming achievements. At the same time I also think I’m the biggest dork in the world. It’s a love hate thing.
So I'm a huge fan of Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge for the original xbox. In fact, that was the game I bought that and sold me on the xbox live service. So after hearing about Snoopy Flying Ace through Giantbomb's quick lock video, I had to take a look. I tried the trial version and it comes with 30 minutes of xbox live time. So the developers of this game knows that it's a multiplayer game and it's going to suck anyone in that plays for those 30 minutes. I couldn't get enough so immediately bought it. For 800 points this is a steal for any fans. This game came out of no where. I love it when companies release gems like this.
This is probably the closest we'll ever get to seeing another Crimson Skies game so for 10 bucks, this definitely gets the itch out while I wait.
Red Dead Redemption is one of those games that definitely pushes the limit with the capabilities with sound. All the little things you can hear in this game is mind boggling. Anyone who’s playing this game or just finished knows this has production value. Red Dead Redemption defines what it’s like to have an excellent headset or a total kick ass surround sound system when you play. But like usual, I can only tell you what it sounds like on my Turtle Beach Headset Ear Force X4 Headset.
Let’s not forget what Rockstar is very good at, the small details. Some people think that skinning the animal get boring due to it’s lengthy animation. This may sound evil, but with surround sound headset, it really rocks. You hear the knife puncturing through the meat and blood splattering, along with blood spraying on the screen. One top of that you John Marston making some sly remark like, “Lets me take your coat madame.”
I really applaud the sound department team for noticing small things especially when you walk around a town. In town of Chuparosa I walked in between a set hanging pigs and you can hear the rope holding them up build tension. To me that was just pure audio candy. It’s all the small details that count for audio enthusiast to appreciate.
I could get into the music department, but that’s a whole other blog entry in itself. If you can get your hands on surround sound headset, do yourself a favor and have play one night with with Red Dead Redemption and indulge yourself into audio heaven.
Favorite SFX: Springfield Rifle shots.
A good shooter always gets me pumped when listening to them on my Turtle Beach Headphones. I finally got to try DICE's Battlefield Bad Company 2. Now that's what I call a fun game. Each battle starts of fairly quite. Shuffling of your soldiers feet as he runs to whatever vehicle or direction you choose to head of to. You can hear the dog tags and whatever part of your apparel that's loose on the soldiers outfits making noise. I'm usually a sniper in the game, but I'm not one of those camping ones. I like to tag my targets for my teammates. I've been working with my brother and his friends on that. It really helps the team when you have a sniper that isn't selfish but helping the general team progress.
One of the greatest set of kills I ever experienced was hearing a motion sensor in my proximity. I was pinned in a building and as soon as I heard it I froze still, as the sensor keeper beeping. Naturally moments later I hear foot steps of the opposing team. Assuming it's clear. After I heard the motion sensor stop, I decided it was my turn to throw one myself. I noticed two in the building with me, but you can see on the radar that their arrows were pointing outside the building edges, so I quickly ran behind stabbed them both in the back one at a time. At those times I kind of exhale his game gets you pumped.
FAVORITE SOUND: DISTANT GUN FIRING BATTLES
I don't think I've been this excited for a a western game since Konami's Sunset Riders. I love the level where they're chasing for the train on horse. I wonder what it's going to be like with Rockstar's game Red Dead Redemption.
I've been recently watching the HBO TV Series "Deadwood." I'm nearly halfway through the second season and loving every episode so far. Ironically Red Dead Redemption is actually around the corner. Lately I've been watching some of the trailers for the game and I'm thoroughly impressed. I'll be the first to admit I'm a Grand Theft Auto fan. I consider GTA IV to be possibly the best game of this generation. To see the team make a whole entire western game gets me pumped.
One thing I'm curious about is the soundtrack. Red Dead Revolver had an excellent soundtrack. Since this is a Rockstar developed game, I am excited to hear what music they’ll have in store. Just listen to the soundtrack from the original.
