Music's cool, Star Wars style laser sword is cool.
But I got no idea what the developers actually wanna show after watching…
It's so dark, I can't see anything but the laser swords swinging around…

Oh, good. It features heavy bass.

I was worried...

Those camera angles were terrible. Not opposed to some light saber battles though...

Hi. I'm Ronald Riquet,president of ZikWave Studios Inc. Beats and Blades is a new independent game whose main purpose is to promote the work done by new artists. It's a new way for them to show their talent. We do something more interesting with trap music(hip hop) and mix it with anime culture. The gameplay will be a simplified version of Ninja Gaiden and DmC with 2 new mechanics. This information may help you understand what we want to achieve with this project.
You're supposed to play the game with good headphones or a subwoofer since infrabass has a predominant place in trap music. That's why there's a message at the beginning.
Thank you all for your feedback.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Sony barely mentioned PSVR at E3 (15 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite You'd imagine that would have shifted a lot of units on its own. I think they need to pull the thumb out and just get a bunch of PS3 ports on there of popular titles. (22 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I think Sony dropped the ball big time by not throwing money at Capcom to make a VR mode of RE2 for PSVR, same as they did with 7. (23 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Loads of stuff would be awesome in VR, because VR is awesome. I'd love a God of War 3 port on it. (24 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX No.. I take that back. They're 6 DOF controllers but they're tracked by the headset.. so they lose tracking when the sensor loses line of sight. Sorta sucks. (49 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX WMR headsets are also $200 (with controllers) and they're solid entry level HMDs but the controllers are only 3 DOF. (50 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Xbox has bigger problems. Doubt they feel the need to get in on the ground floor of a super niche market. (52 minutes ago)
