There’s a cool video making the rounds of website links called Unfinished 1st person test (new footage at end) by thejazzman9475, yes, he of those TF2 dance videos. Highly recommended BTW. Got me thinking about whether this was something I wanted to see in EP3.
I have to admit I’m not really worried about the player model and not being able to see my feet. I suspend certain aspects of reality when I start playing games on my PC. I mean, i have to look at a screen for goodness sake. If I were in VR and had no legs then that might ruin it for me.
Now, not only does this video show more player model, it really shows enhanced interaction. The ability to block a Hunter’s attack with the crowbar, as my header image badly shows.
Of course, showing more player model wouldn’t mean you had to have new interaction of view styles, but it would seem a natural progression.
Personally, I’m more or less happy as we stand, as long as the basic controls required to play don’t increase, they that’s cool.
What do you think?
