Great Expectations: Hitman Around The World

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now. When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul

When I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of bliss; and then, my friend, when darkness overspreads my eyes, and heaven and earth seem to dwell in my soul and absorb its power, like the form of a beloved mistress, then I often think with longing, Oh, would I could describe these conceptions, could impress upon paper all that is living so full and warm within me, that it might be the mirror of my soul, as my soul is the mirror of the infinite God!

O my friend — but it is too much for my strength — I sink under the weight of the splendour of these visions!

Any Last Words: Assassin’s Creed Black Flag

In an exclusive interview with GameSpot, Ubisoft Quebec opens up on lessons from the past: Female leads, Unity issues, and why Desmond is still the benchmark.

A moment of truth awaits Ubisoft Quebec. For the first time since its doors opened some ten years ago, this near-400 person studio has been entrusted with what is undoubtedly Ubisoft’s most important commercial property.

This comes at a key moment for the Assassin’s Creed franchise too, with painful memories tied to the previous entry, and its proprietors keen to demonstrate what the series is still capable of. For Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the latest entry in this garlanded series, the stakes are high.

How will Ubisoft Quebec rise to the challenge? At the heart of this story is Marc-Alexis Cote, the game’s creative director, and Hugo Giard, its level design director. As part of a wider studio visit, both executives speak to GameSpot to discuss the lessons it has learned form the series' past, along with the vision it has helped craft for the franchise’s future.

What’s the essence of the series that you’re always trying to maintain as you move from one game to the next?

[miptheme_quote author=”Marc-Alexis Cote” style=”text-left”]We talked about which one was the best entry for us as developers, and we came up with the same answer: AC2 and Brotherhood nailed the Assassin’s Creed experience.[/miptheme_quote]

Cote: Well the core of the franchise has always been the fantasy of the historical time machine. Even though it’s not technically a time machine, because it doesn’t transport you to another era, it still allows our fans to experience different periods of time. That’s the essence of Assassin’s Creed. As long as we fulfil that, it’s an Assassin’s Creed game. It’s about giving the player the chance to visit another time and place.

That’s what has made the success of the franchise, and in everything we do–even those Leonardo da Vinci missions–when we started building them back in Brotherhood, they started from thinking about what cool stuff Da Vinci did and what if his inventions had been built for real. He made a design for a helicopter, which we once thought to put into the game.

Giard: Yes! You had to pedal the machine and the blades were all flying around and stuff.

Cote: Yes. Again, we as developers travel through time with our historical research, and we need to bring that sense of being amazed and being able to marvel. We need to expose that to the players.

How much texture are you planning to give that dynamic? Are Jacob and Evie always on the same wavelength, but just have differences in approach?

Cote: For me, the whole game and the narrative is defined by how they clash, how they work together, and how their relationship evolves.

Giard: The different way they go about achieving basically the same objective is what creates that conflict. You can’t forget that they have both been trained by the same person, they’re both assassins, but they see the world in completely different ways, yet their objective is the same. Obviously, they’re not going to go about it in the same way, and that creates a conflict that makes the emotions so much more interesting.

There was some controversy surrounding female protagonists with Unity. Many will be thinking the inclusion of a female protagonist is paying lip-service to critics, it’s a reactionary choice that’s trying to save some face for the franchise. Is that a fair comment?

Cote: What I’d say is that they’ve both been part of the experience from the very beginning. Cynics will be cynics, and it’s unfortunate, but we’ve been so focused on build this game the way we want with those two characters. It’s not done to pay lip-service, it’s done to build a great game.

[review]

When we were building this experience we asked ourselves “how can we make it feel new, how can we make it feel fresh, how do we avoid telling the same story?” That’s where we came up with the idea of having two protagonists, which evolved into having twin protagonists, and a brother/sister relationship that we’ve never explored. That started two and a half years ago.

Gears of War vs Orphan Black Unity

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen.

When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains

She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek, then she continued her way. On her way she met a copy.

The copy warned the Little Blind Text, that where it came from it would have been rewritten a thousand times and everything that was left from its origin would be the word „and” and the Little Blind Text should turn around and return to its own, safe country. But nothing the copy said could convince her and so it didn’t take long until a few insidious Copy Writers ambushed her, made her drunk with Longe and Parole and dragged her into their agency, where they abused her for their projects again and again.

Ground Zeroes will cost $20 on Xbox 360 and PS3 for a digital copy

It’s a true shame that creators like Hideo Kojima need to justify the length of their games, Shadows of the Damned director Massimo Guarini said today on Twitter. Guarini now heads up independent studio Ovosonico and is working on Murasaki Baby for the PlayStation Vita.

[miptheme_quote author=”said Garani” style=”pull-left”]When creators are forced to justify the length of a game, I think that’s one of the biggest failures of our industry[/miptheme_quote]

His comments, of course, are in reference to the controversy surrounding Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, which you can reportedly finish in one sitting for its main story.

Kojima Productions designer Jordan Amaro defended the game’s length earlier this week, saying the length of a title is not necessarily associated with quality. He cited games like Journey and Dear Esther as examples. The next day, Kojima himself responded to the drama, saying, „I believe people will be satisfied with the 'play time' of GZ and will not stress the 'clear time.”

It’s not only the game’s length, but its price, that is getting some gamers riled up. Ground Zeroes will cost $20-$40 depending on your platform platform and delivery choice, which is well above the examples Amaro cited in defending Ground Zeroes. Ground Zeroes will cost $20 on Xbox 360 and PS3 for a digital copy and $30 on those platforms for a physical unit. On Xbox One and PS4, digital copies are going for $30, while physical copies will sell for $40.

[miptheme_quote author=”Lily Bergamo” style=”text-left”]The most impressive one to me so far has got to be 'speed'. As a video game console, that’s the part the stood out to me the most for the PlayStation 4. We make games, so we want to make them fun, and we also put a lot of effort into making them as appealing as possible. In order to do that, we need hardware that can show 'speed'.[/miptheme_quote]

Players can decide for themselves when Ground Zeroes launches on March 18. The game is a prequel to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which is said to be „hundreds of times larger” than Ground Zeroes. Konami hasn’t set a release date for that game yet, but it might not be until the end of 2015.

Another high-profile developer has spoken out to praise the technical ability of Sony’s PlayStation 4, which recently crossed 5.3 million units sold worldwide to date. This time, the glowing words come from Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Goichi Suda AKA Suda 51.

„When it comes to making games, having this 'speed' available as an ingredient really puts us at ease,” Suda added. „Even as we currently develop, we can really feel the response of having it available.”
