Dishonored dev: players "hungry" for new kind of game

During a live demo of Dishonored, executive producer Julian Roby was asked if he agreed with EA Labels President Frank Gibeau, who said that new IPs shouldn't be launched later in a console's cycle.

"Well, you probably have some insight on that but I think as long as the game is good, whether it's a new IP or not, if the game is good, it gets a good review and its marketed properly people will want to look at it," said Roby.

"Specifically now, because its been a few years where weve only got sequels of sequels of sequels of sequels. I think people are getting tired of just playing the same thing over and over."

"So I hope that theyre going to try Dishonored for the fact that its trying to do something a little different that those other games."

Roby suggested players are getting bored with similar games, hinting that the industry needs to spice things up.

"You look at the line-up for Christmas this year and it's like something number six, something number five, something number seven. I really think people are starving for something new. Something new in terms of universe. Something new in terms of gameplay. Something new in terms of visuals."

Dishonored is readying itself for an October 9th release in North America, 11th in Australia and 12th in Europe.

You can be sure that I am going to try this game. Sequels are great, but ones things go overboard, then things become frustrating, like Call of Duty.

No more sequals, no more hide'n gun - I saw the feed for Steelseries this morning -
1995 - Warcraft II
1996 - Quake

I almost wept remembering how immensly fun I found those two games and how easily day turned to night turned to day while playing them, over and over. Recalling how little I care for many of the games released today, it was a sad reminder.

Sorry, but nostalgia aside - todays games needs a real good kicking in its' fat lazy arse!

I really hope Dishonoured is going to be part of that kick - but I've kinda heard those arguments before so I wait for it with some patience...
