I agree but I dont understand they fire people yet they acquire another studio... my heart goes to those employees.

Back to game, LOVE IT! it's really coming together graphically.

visually, this is one of the most impressive looking games I've seen...its up there with GoW3 which is really impressive considering the graphical heritage of that series

Can't wait to get it, should be very very interesting!

This is really looking awesome, and I have to admit I had a few misgivings about turning Dante into an action game (no, not that Dante, who already has an action game).

But the whole "save" or "damn" thing seems really contrived, a last minute attempt to give the gamer a choice in what would otherwise be a very linear, go-here-and-kill-this kind of game. And there's nothing wrong with that kind of game if you ask me--so why force Dante into some kind of soul-saving messiah for the damned? Plus, I think that is very theologically suspect, and only God can forgive sinners.

Oh well, can't wait to chop me up some demons!

Aaaand... there's an Animated Movie by japanese studio Production I.G. (Ghost in the Shell) that will be released alongside Dante's Inferno in February 2010.

That was one of their main goals. One guy on the team said, "30 FPS feels like you're drunk".

The "punish/absolve" mechanic, I really hope it's not like inFAMOUS. That's the only thing I'm worried about.

Sweet video!
And yeah, the gameplay seems to be 60fps.
Commented on 2009-11-10 21:39:44
Yes, official its 60fps ...!

The games looks ok, but let's not compare this to GoW3. I highly doubt this game will be able to compete with GoW3 in terms of production values and overall polish, due to experience alone.

And no, I'm not being a sony fanboy. I just don't think people should get too hyped for something simply b/c dead space was so good.

But its okay for you to compare :P

Sath, obviously I meant don't compare it to GoW b/c it has proven so little as of yet, not don't compare it as in, never mention the two games together.

Huh? So we should only compare, when we have Dante's Inferno 3? BTW, Dead Space was not just good, it was the best game of 2008.
Commented on 2009-11-13 06:50:00
Well I do agree that Dead Space was the best game of 2008, or at least damn close. Fuck that game was good! :-)
