Body hiding, animals and AI

[ Edited ]
13 replies 352 views Edited Dec 11, 2012

I have a few suggestions:

 

You can hide a body after you kill someone stealthy, once you hide it will be more difficult for the NPCs to find it and start becoming suspicious. When an NPC finds a body, he/she becomes suspicious and alerts the other NPCs to start searching.

 

Animals: It would be awesome if there are a few animals (Deers, dogs etc) throughout the game that you can kill and collect their meat. Meat can be used to restore health, not as much as med packs ofc. (I have seen some deers in some drawings for TLoU.

 

Also, does anyone know how Ellie's AI will work (following you), I mean, you try to stealthy get past through a group of enemies but Ellie is... just not hiding because you have taken the only avalaible cover. If Ellie gets detected do you get detected too? Or do they shoot Ellie or something? Same goes for the infected.

 

One last question, do you guys think avoiding the part that Joel falls in the elevator shaft is possible? Like Joel climbs up first and then helps Ellie out or something.

If the Infected run and attack Joel do they attack Ellie too? Also do you guys think fighting the Infected will involve QTE's or the shaking of the analog sticks when you are grabbed by them since they are fast? I wanna know how this would work.

Ellie will take any available cover, infected will attack you first, Ellie will help you though. And about AI detecting Ellie, you just basically kill them/distract them since yu're protecting eachother. It's like you're playing with a teammate that helps you but sn't as good, you work together.

I'm really wondering how Ellie's AI will work out. So many games have terrible companion AI, so a game like this with a companion throughout better be sure it works well.

 

I don't know if Ellie can die or not (and if she does you have to revert to a save), but my guess is they handle that by her being incapacitated until Joel heals her.

 

Animals could be a good fit for parts of the game, but I don't think the game will be lacking without them.

Well the story trailer confirmed horses and I remember seeing a deer in some concept art

But I just can't see hunting or aggressive wildlife fitting into the game

Regarding hiding bodies, sure it would deepen the stealth gameplay but in a game like this, that's not stealth focused a la Splinter Cell, I don't think it's necessary or needed

About Ellie's AI, do you remember the part from the extended demo where Joel is hiding on a balcony type area under a window sill, and Ellie walks right past the window while an enemy looks right at her but doesn't see her at all? Rewatch the video and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. What I'm saying is that I think if joel is hiding, the game registers that as Ellie hiding as well, even if she's not fully in cover yet.

LOL you got me. But seriously, it would be awesoem to have animals. There is an artwork made by ND that has Joel and Ellie under a destroyed bridge and there are some deer next to them.

Oh, and also, food is in the game, but what makes it doubtable that there will be animal killing and generally meat is that food is under the category "sugar".

I really hope that we can control Ellie at some episodes.
