PlayStation Eye Chat — Military Madness: Nectaris

Chris Morell's Avatar + Posted by Chris Morell on Aug 24, 2009 // Senior Social Media Specialist

A couple weeks back, you met Backbone designer Kyle Tunison who dropped some first details on Military Madness coming soon for PSN. As promised, we brought Kyle to life via the PlayStation Eye, throwing him your questions and more. So take a look at the vid, and stay tuned as Kyle will be back to talk in-depth about Military Madness’ multiplayer mode in the near future.

    I agree completely, mamaitata! I was so psyched when I got to work on this game, especially since there just isn\’t enough TBS on consoles!

What happened to the main page of the site? The bar on the right side doesn’t show up and I can’t view older entries at the bottom of the page. This is on both of my computers.

Hay Jeff or Chris
Ok, I am buying the Game of the Year edition of LittleBigPlanet. Do I have to pre-order the game to get into the Mod Nation racer beta, or does it coming inside The Game of the Year Edition of LittleBigPlanet. Please I need to know because the game is coming out in two weeks.

I was not interested in this game until this Eye Chat(I don’t like RTS on console’s to well) however this game looks pretty well designed I will give the demo a whirl and see from there. ;-)

    Glad to hear it, nickert0n! RTS games definitely benefit greatly from a mouse/keyboard set-up. But, since this is TBS (turn-based) game, I think you\’ll find it a great fit for your controller!

How messed up will the multiplayer be for this game? You have a great running streak of [DELETED] up multiplayer, and I won’t be buying any of the games with your company’s name on it until you fix the multiplayer for all the games you developed. Thanks for reading, much appreciated.

    + Kyle Vincent Tunison on August 25th, 2009 at 10:32 am said:

    It\’s perfect for 2, 3, and 4 players! With that said, each experience is very different. 2P games are easily the most competitive. 3P are awesomely cutthroat (and we have maps designed specifically for 3P). And 4P can be completely different depending on whether or not your playing with teams! It\’s all about the way you want to play!

Sony should really hire the people who made this commecial and make another one for PS slim and the games for this year and next one and market the hell out of it from now on.

1. What will the native resolution be? 1080p? Will FSAA be used?

2. Will the audio assets be 24-bit? lossless? I personally prefer higher quality audio over the poorly executed surround sound found in several PSN games.

3. Who do you have doing the music? I’ve really loved the retro-remixed music in Bionic Commando Rearmed and Shatter, and am hoping for more!

4. Will the multiplayer campaign just be a rehash of the single player? I don’t care for games that basically make me play through a game twice in order to get all the trophies.

5. Any level creation&sharing as part of the Play Create Share theme?

    + Kyle Vincent Tunison on August 25th, 2009 at 10:23 am said:

    1.) 1080 with FSAA.
    2.) Not certain on this one.
    3.) Our music was our own in house audio team. I loved the music in BC:R and Shatter as well, but we wanted to be more unobtrusive with this score. Most people don\’t listen to rocking electronica or techno while playing chess. you can expect a more orchestrated score here.
    4.) The multiplayer component has 10 competitive maps built for it. These were all built from the ground up and were designed for player vs player.
    5.) Sorry, no level editor. :( Our game\’s art isn\’t \”tile-based\” so this just wasn\’t possible.

Will the Playstation Blog in Home be updated for more of these interviews? I go there on a weekly basis to watch Pulse and the PS Blog. Unfortunately not much is happening in the Theatre. Maybe it’s my ADD kicking in. Thus the impatience. Do you ever wonder why clouds make funny shapes? – I’m kidding.

Im wondering as it was problably mentioned in the Ey chat but just dont feel like watching. lol. I read that there will be up to a 4 player offline game with either every one shares a conroller or each has their own. Im curious as to know, will it be like a co-op where you team up and eliminate the CPU, or will it just be head to head.

Yeah, lossless audio is a must. I tend to stay away from games with that Dolby Digital crap in them… It ruined Assasins Creed so hardcore it’s not even funny. Same with FLOCK.
I’ve never seen a PS3 exclusive with lossy audio though. >.> I’m just gonna assume this has it.

    + Kyle Vincent Tunison on August 26th, 2009 at 10:51 am said:

    I\’m definitely with you on lossless audio, it makes everything better (if you\’ve got a decent sound system anyway). To be fair, the general audio design of MM:N is relatively subdued, since we didn\’t want anything obtrusive or distracting getting in the way of players thinking (a rather important part of the game).

    If you want a little sample of the music in the game, the website (militarymadnessgame.com) actually uses a low-fidelity version of one of the tracks from the game (which plays once the trailer is done or when you click on the platform of your choice).

You know, I actually glazed over this post earlier this week, but I’m glad I came back to it. You guys definitely seem to have your heads on straight and I like what I’m seeing. I’m especially appreciative of the release of a demo, since so many games just don’t bother. I may end up getting the game just because of that fact alone (well, that’s not quite true since I already like what I’m seeing, but it’s sets good precedent.)

Thank you for stopping by! =D
