Exclusive Gamespot Demo Preview Video Available
As we count down the hours till the Prey release later tonight, we wanted to make you aware of an exclusive new video just posted over at the Gamespot site. Available here now, this video, totaling 10 minutes and 48 seconds is an interview with Chris Rhinehart of Human Head.

In it, Chris talks about various aspects of the Prey Demo, and the thoughts that went behind various aspects of designing the demo. Chris shows off some of the game play in the demo itself, running through a few parts of it. Chris goes into some of the weapons in the demo, and how Tommy acclimates himself to the Alien environment. Chris also talks about how the authentic Cherokee nature of the character impacts the game.

This is a new video, it hasn't been posted before, and is only available at Gamespot. So head on over there to check it out right now. Although, some of the stuff Chris talks about is spoilerish for the demo, too - so be warned. But Chris does go into detail on various modes of the game, and it's nice to hear from the game's developer the thoughts behind some of the various modes.

Come back later tonight for the long awaited Prey demo!

I don't think I'll bother watching this & spoiling it since it's like 4 hours away. Maybe afterwards.

IMO it doesn't really spoil anything. But that is a matter of personal preference.

I'm sure I can wait a few hours more, so like others, I'll be watching this after I've played the demo.

...

Provided my PC doesn't blow up or anything

Regards,

Yickle.

Actualy had a HD failure today. Luckely it was my old 40gb drive with just random downloads. Getting a "Disk Boot failure" when I got home only hours from the prey demo kind of scared me. Still can't boot the machine without the Windows cd but I'll get that fixed next week as I want to try Prey first.

Funny I should mention PCs blowing up and you mentioning you had a system crash...of all the games I have...Starcraft locked up the entire machine when I saved a replay after a B.net match! Had to reboot

Btw, like my new "Prey-ish" avatar? :P

Regards,

Yickle.

I would skip this unless you want spoilers for the demo. It only goes through a small section of the game, though, as there's lots of talking and explaining things.

So, view at your own risk.

ICR: I didn't realise that Gamespot editor had a moderately severe shaving accident!

Besides, there is nothing wrong with the original image.

Great vid. Spoiler-filled, but makes me want to play the demo even more.
