View Full Version : ASYLUM aka DarkBlack Trailer and Screens

07-29-2002, 12:48 PM
Previously known as DarkBlack, ASYLUM is first person horror title which features stunning graphics, real world physics featuring moveable, breakable scenery and a Ragdoll sytem which makes shotgun blasting your enemies an awesome experience. The Xbox version of the game features tons of features not available in the PS2 version, like hi-res photographic textures, and an improved real time light and shadow system. You are able to view your progress at a later date, by directing and editing the in game cinematic cameras, which you can save and play back later in the form of a movie. All thanks to the Xbox hard drive. This ain't a PS2 port but otherwise.

ASYLUM is a highly atmospheric, first person horror title, in which the player takes on the role of a contestant in a TV game show that slowly degenerates into a macabre nightmare.

Channel WKYZ has commandeered a supposedly haunted asylum called "Wolfborough", and is broadcasting a special live edition of it's popular reality TV programme "FRIGHT OF YOUR LIFE!" from inside it.
Four contestants are locked within its walls overnight, and must complete a number of tasks and puzzles in a race to win the biggest cash prize in television history, $10 million.

They enter the asylum with a game show mentality, but when the bowels of hell spew out its most vicious demons they soon find that they are no longer fighting for the prize money but their own lives.

that physics part of the movie was annoying as hell. god, it took up like half the movie, and it was stupid. who the hell cares if you can move a chair? of course its impressive, but we dont need to see it 50 times.

Let me quote someone from the GC forums as why Nintendo will allow it:

Your not talking about Nintendo 3-5 years ago........ *sigh* There letting anything pass on there console including Dave Mirra XXX uncensored.. The Nintendo you know today isnt the Nintendo you knew a few years ago, especially since the old man stepped down.. Mature games on Cube are beginning to become a common thing... I mean Blood Omen 2 was announced a week ago.. Bloodrayne is on the way with the Xbox and PS2 versions, RE and ED are already out Dead To Rights, Enclave, True Crime, Mafia, RE0,Raven Blade, Glass Rose and a load of other mature games are on there way to Cube... NINTENDO DOESNT CARE ANYMORE. THERE MAIN GOAL WITH THE CUBE IS TO DRAW IN GAMERS OF ALL AGES SO THEY LET GAMES OF ALL CATIGORYS ON THERE SYSTEM.

It all depends on what you mean and what you want to see as far as Nintendo's image goes.

For instance, everyone remembers that MK got censored on SNES, but nobody remembers MKII for SNES was not censored, and was the best version between it and Genesis.

Let's not forget the dangerous times videogames were in by the government during that time.

What would you do if you saw your competetor (Sega) get sued and have games recalled and banned for their system (MK/NightTrap)?

Exactly. Nintendo is a business. Never forget- it's all about the money.

So you see why. It used to be kiddy but it wants to shake the kiddy image off.
