Our videos of Bloodforge

Our videos of Bloodforge

Beat them up fans will get a first taste of Bloodforge tomorrow on Xbox Live Arcade, should they decide to download the game's demo. Because we would not want you to be surprised, we decided to capture a few videos of the game ourselves and here is the very first one introducing the main character and the story. As its title seems to indicate, there is a lot of blood in Climax's game and the violence unleashed here is that of anger and revenge, something Kratos would probably understand very well. Provided you have nothing against the art style and you manage to get past the camera issues, you will probably have fun playing the game. As for us, we can't say we have been particularly seduced by what we've seen, but then again it just might not be our thing.
Update 3 : Fourth part added.

I swear you have at least one negative comment about every game posted. Do you actually play games?

What really jars about the visuals in this, aside from the total lack of AA, is that the ground is completely covered in snow, but the rocks are completely snow free. Just looks wrong, like the rocks don't belong in the same scene.

The devs should have looked at how the snow was done in Skyrim.

it's a Climax title so... jarring animation/performance and visual bugs and blockiness are to be expected.

Yep, just played the trial and the game seems to be so bad. It's like you take control over character made from paper. Combat is button mashy and the camera dance like crazy after every single move you make. Ugh. Safe your points guys and buy something amazing like Trials Evolution (if you haven't done that yet lol:P).

Played it a while ago. Was an earlier build, but it was so rough that I have a hard time thinking they pulled it out of the fire.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Origins, Legends, DK Tropical Freeze and 3D World are probably the best platforming had to offer in a while. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @nostradamus: It is indeed damn good. I love to 100% all the levels, i had that with Origins too. Some of those levels are really unique too. Looks great too and music as well. Great stuff. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Well it doesn't do what I want anyway :D (3 Hours ago)
  • itaintrite
    itaintrite I'd be more concerned with Asus' QC. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX If this had a pen i'd probably buy it: [url] (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But I really want my core applications there. That part is important to me. There aren't a lot of options. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: I don't think there are really that many alternatives. The Note 12.2 would be an option but the software isn't really there on Android. Sure there's Sketchbook. And Infinite Painter. (3 Hours ago)
