State of Decay

81 posts in this topic



Some of you guys may remember that one ambitious Zombie game from Microsoft titled Class3, well after 2 to 3 years of development they finally released a trailer and changed the name to State of Decay

It looks like a more arcady version of Alan Wake with Zombies instead of Taken lol

Oh, XBLA, that explains it. Sounds promising, I've been wanting a game where you build your own base up.

Looks very jerky and rigid, the animation interpolation could use some work... but overall it looks pretty rad, definitely feeling the Alan Wake vibe in that shiz

My reaction exactly.

So this is a rebadged version of that Cry-engine 3 game? While it look like it could be fun, some stuff looked really bad, like the insta-bite animation and that head shattering drop-kick.

Animations look too fast, jerky and weird, like Maxx already mentioned. It seems like nothing has real weight, considering the jumps and movement shown in the video. Also, environment's lighting looks flat. It seems like there are only those dynamic sharp shadows, but the the "radiosity lighting" that makes environments look interesting and dynamic, are missing. It seems too arcadey to me, which I don't like that much.. especially when almost every zombie game out there so far is arcadey-like, rarely a rather serious zombie game is released.

If it keeps going up to the release like shown in that video, I'll pass.

It looks kinda fun.

I like the colors used, it looks kinda vibrant.


I think, I'll gift this one too if it's cheap on Xbox Live or Steam shit I dunno that is if you want one I already got War Z so... yeah.

This looks pretty neat. I'm not expecting anything too deep since it's only going to be an arcade game (that being said some are pretty awesome) The fact that it's singleplayer only is also really intruiging, can't be doing with wankers in a free roam game. There will only be one wanker in my zombie apocalypse.

Also I remember hearing something about co-op a while back for this, and I hoped for splitscreen, but haven't heard anything else on the matter.

Regardless it still looks good for something that will cost as many Microsoft funbucks as a shitty map pack for the next generic first person shooter.

Yeh, the more I see of this the better it looks. The whole 'it's an XBLA title' put me off initially.

I'm also glad it's singleplayer (though branching it into a co-op and not a fully blown MP game later down the line would be cool).

Yeah what with Blade Kitten, Braid, The Dead Rising Cases, I Am Alive, Deadlight, Toy Soldiers, The Walking Dead, Zeno Clash, Limbo, Deathspank, American Nightmare, Shadow Complex and Trials Evolution all being on the Xbox Arcade I can see why you'd be put off

Some of those titles turned out to be quite good but were what they were and the more AA titles you cited were essentially expansion packs built on already existing games by reasonably big studio's (I am alive isn't but is quite rough around the edges and has a 'budgety' almost moddish feel to it) which was ,and still is, my concern with this game. I really don't think what i'm saying here is all that unfounded, especially if you watch those eariler trailers and use the slightest bit of context. I didn't say 'all XBLA titles are SHIT' but live titles are budget and this purports to be an all singing and dancing open world Zombie game, so excuse my slight reservation.

The rule of thumb with arcade games is to always expect flaws. Honestly I've played AAA titles that are shittier in both quality and quantity compared to some arcade/Indie games, I guess a budget over a hundred times that of an arcade means jack shit when given to idiots.

For under ten pounds I'm not going to be expecting some glowing entity that spews out candy and orgasms, but from the looks of things I've seen so far and the enthusiasm from the team it's going be to enjoyable at the very least.

Not to mention it's a fucking sandbox zombie game!

Seriously put that shit on the box

if it has one

which it won't

I agree with sota I dont like the lighting much. It reminds me of console port games, but I guess this is an xbox game so thats expected.

Fetch the firecrackers freaks! Heads up, looks like Fisher's havin' fun in our airfield! It's time to stop 'im!

NMRiH should steal that idea with the firecracker distraction.

Its like the pipebomb idea in l4d where the zombies chase it!

Umm... nah.
Play Siren: Blood Curse on PS3, they got some excellent ideas on there.

I played this at PAX... wasn't that impressed really... Felt pretty clunky and arcade like...not much suspense. Probably on par as much as WarZ was ...

I'm sure there is gameplay footage already up to view on youtube or something. Last I knew they were keeping one of their consoles open for G4TV to interview and record.

They released a new vid a month ago.

Its kinda looks Gta with zombies.

since the majority of my time in san andreas was with riot cheats on in the country towns this is perfect. Also its supposed to be heavily management based.
