This genre really needs to be injected with something fresh and given proper Graphical treatment for the love of god .... Next gen is officially current gen now! We shouldnt be seeing low poligon characters and evironemnts! Koei Come on Now!!!!!

That looks downright awfully... seriously

Absolutely terrible, looks bad even if it were a PS2 game, deveolpers really shouldnt be allowed to get away with such poor visuals.

Wow, I saw this on a PS3 kiosk and thought it was only for PS3. It looked really good running on the kiosk, even if it was yet another dynasty warriors game in a differant setting. If it looks anything like it did there, Ill definantly be picking it up.

For those complaining about how it looks, it looks fine to me. Not amazing but certianly not terrible. Might be fun too.

KOEI is milking their Dynasty Warrior/ Samurai Warrior games by renaming it to Bladestorm. Next gen games doesn't look right with last gen engine.

AHum,looked okay.

The original playstation logo is very fitting.

I'm so glad the PS3 is getting games like this, because it too is at the mercy of the talentless developers and not all Sony fairy dust and magic sugar sprinkles.

Koei proves their next gen know how again? When did they prove it the 1st time? How far can they polish a turd? Will I keep asking questions? Maybe? Maybe not?

Actually I think this game plays like Kessen and not DW/SW. Not that it means it will be any good.

Isn't Koei also releaseing Fatal Inertia for the 360?
Commented on 2006-12-10 17:28:14
Well glad to see Koei are supporting the 360, but yea graphically it's not much to look at.

The Japanese love these type of games, so i'm sure they will appreciate it, well if they own a 360... hmmm

Koei once again proves their next-gen know-how
are you serious, the ps2 could pump out graphics like that, and those are ps3 screen shots.

your judgement is way off on this one blim.

koei should stop existing
Commented on 2006-12-10 18:27:36
I want Fatal Inertia!
Commented on 2006-12-10 19:03:09
looking better but still not next gen
Commented on 2006-12-10 19:47:25
That was entirely real time? wow!

seems like a fusion of kessen and dynasty warriors!
Commented on 2006-12-10 19:52:41
PS2 could probably handle the graphics of Bladestorm, either Koei know that and are just choosing to ignore it or they are using that to allow them to have more going on on the screen with PS3 and Xbox360's powers. Its not a very informative trailer to say the least so before people start ruling out the game, at least wait a bit for more info, then say if Koei are crap or good.

About the game

What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you're not gonna get good viewport performance in most 3D apps with a geforce chip (50 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and it not having a Quadro gpu limits its professional 3D software use. (50 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: as i say, i'm a 3D guy too. (51 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the entry model is a bit short on ram, having the top gtx980m gpu is probably overkill for most use, especially if your working in the adobe package. (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog mainly though, as a 2D and 3D artist, a workstation is just better. i take power and functionality over style personally. but it's worked for apple, maybe MS have a success on their hands (53 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: as for price. i wouldn't want the touch, it's not worth the added cost. and it's 3000 for entry level. realistically any self respecting artist would be getting the 4200 version. (55 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: the dial looks quite impractical to me. but then i like having the cintiq remote on my lap. i don't like the arm strain associated with on-screen buttons in that situation. (57 minutes ago)
