Captures of Ninja Gaiden Sigma's demo

Captures of Ninja Gaiden Sigma's demo

The demo of Ninja Gaiden Sigma is now available on the PSN, at least on the Japanese store. What better occasion for me to test my new capture hardware? I think you will all agree that it's "slightly" better than the old one. So enjoy these images while I figure out how to encode this new video format into something you can watch.
Update: And here comes the video. It's the first one I've encoded using the brand new capture system and lots of stuff have been changed. So let me know what you think.
Update 2: Official images added.

The first 10 minutes : Ninja Gaiden Sigma demo

Looks really good! Too bad I can't play this :( Looking forward for some videos :)

How are the controls? Have they changed anything from the xbox version?

Looks good. Can't wait to play the complete version. By then, they should be finished with any touch up- graphically and gameplay wise.

Looks like a slight improvement of the Xbox original. Lighting is very flat.. doesn't look like the great upgrade I was hoping for.

Commented on 2007-04-27 01:02:04

Looks good, though I wish there was a part where you could play as Ayane

The new codec encoding doesn't fair well on my Intel Mac.

The sound disappears or goes out of sync in the beginning of the video and also I noticed it during the mission clear screen as well. I'm Using VLC Nightly Build so it's not an issue with the player (I don't think anyways).

Also tried it on Flip4Mac, sound problem isn't there, but video doesn't run and fast sometimes.

The overall video quality is good though.
I don't understand why you choose the other encoding methods though, cause avi's used to be no problem, and the other wmv encodes where pretty much good.

About the game

What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (14 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (15 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (16 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (18 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (18 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (19 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (20 minutes ago)
