Dark Void: Developer Diary 4

Capcom wants to prove Dark Void might be one of the hit of the early 2010. In this fourth dev diary, we get a presentation of the Teslapunk technology, with some rather interesting weapons.

One of the first things that Asian man said is what I've been thinking of this game since first announced: just things thrown together. Vertical combat (gimmick, nothing more), jetpack (gimmick), old vs new (gimmick) etc.

I would be surprised if this game gets rated above 7/10.

They should have spend the money making another "Rocketeer " Movie !

Want this game to be good,but...the harder they try to convince me......

Still,there is hope for the best !

i've said it before, and i'll say it again, can't possibly be any worse then capcom's attempts at games this gen, i mean, aside from dead rising they havnt released a single game worth raving about. they're all been decidedly lacklustre

Your opinions seem at odds, I'm sorry to say, with the rest of the world. Check metacritic, Capcom have produced loads of great stuff this gen, from RE5, to Lost Planet, to MegaMan 9, Devil May Cry 4, to Street Fighter 4 and now on to Dark Void and Lost Planet 2. All are highly regarded critically. You're entitled to your opinion of course, but it's a pretty unusual one.

What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Not sure if they've improved much these days. (45 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A lot of Japanese made games were guilty of that whenever voice acting become possible. I mean, aye, it was always cheese, but you tolerated it more back then (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The voice acting was always regarded as pure cheese. (47 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, and the voice acting, something which back then, was great. Today it's just pure cheese. Sound design is often neglected to be mentioned over visuals when talking about progress in games. (48 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX This is what Shenmue combat looks like. It's not heavily based on QTE despite the game making QTE a buzzword: [url] (48 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah a lot of it was very clunky. It did often boil down to QTE's to resolve "disputes" and chases, if I recall correctly. Mad how a lot of games to this day still do that. (49 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Still one of the better parts of the game. And it's not a bad game, but it's definitely a "good for its time" game.. which means.. maybe not actually good :D (50 minutes ago)
