couldnt edit

but i think the scene where the assassin climbs up the balcony/bridge is ingame

it looks alot like the slow motion kills from prince of persia. so prince of persia in the 12th century without a lot of jumping ^^

The same with BIA3. Something fishy's going on here...

Who knows, maybe it's just a way for Microsoft to make big announcements at E3. Or Ubi's really pissed off about not getting the Lionhead deal.

Bottom left screen...That bit in the video actually looks like it's gameplay!
Oh my....
I won't call this "next gen" yet since it's just basically beefed up graphics and nothing else that is special but goddamn it, this is one nice beefing up!
I want to read more about this....The AI, environment interaction and maybe everytime you stab someone the camera actually follows the blade into somone's heart! THAT'S next-gen.
Well, not raelly but it would be nice to have that.

NICE! Splintercell, hitman and Prince of persia in one!

could be a buyer!

Boring. A real time trailer or nothing.

Why are these companies trying to follow in Sony footsteps! STOP THE CGI show something real! No one want another KZ trailers.
Commented on 2006-05-02 22:59:28
i think the whole blade following thing was just for the teaser. Im pretty sure its all cg. Sony are pretty much stopping all ingame shots of games that dont look "nextgen" from being shown to the public. So all everyones getting from them is tech demos and cg. I suppose they cant afford to show something equal to the 360 because then all thier twice as fast talk goes out the window. But its disapointing.

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah I would hope so. The fact it's $60 right now in this stage is rough though (14 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I'm assuming since it's 1st party there's a decent chance of it eventually becoming good. (24 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks so I'm thinking I may wait to buy Sea of Thieves when it actually has good quest content. Game is REAL shallow (42 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth like in dark souls where i mapped run/dash/roll to one of the paddles so i could run (b-button) while controlling the camera (right thumbstick) at the same time. (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you can feel the difference in material quality in every part. 3 different swappable thumbstick heights is also nice, and the programmable and swappable trigger pads beneath are also nice in some gams (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @droezelke: i had the standard one pad. i liked it, but then it was in an (ahem..) accident. So i had to get a new one anyway. the elite is really nice. d-pad is very good. good grip (5 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Standard. The elite is too expensive. I can buy multiple games for that money :-) (6 Hours ago)
