Dark Void was also of course at the Captivate show, and Capcom released nothing less than a trailer and 3 gameplay videos.

Hmmmm.

This game could be awesome, but I'm willing to bet it could be reminiscent of the shitfest that was Too Human. I think it's the art direction, it just sucks.

What's not to like?

It's Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge, meets, Gears of War . . . developed by the same team that made Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge.

If it were any more win, the universe would implode.

this is probably the one capcom title that stands out above the rest for me. lost planet 2 , dead rising 2 and bionic comando, while they all look better visually (well, lost planet at least) this is the one where the gameplay stands out as something really decent.

meh, looked boring but I have faith in what Capcom put out so it could be a sweet little gem...

there is just something in those robot enemies that feels... childish. Maybe it is the design overall. They dont seem to have the proper amount of weight and the animation is something you find in cartoons. And the way they die.. a small electric cloud and a pile of junk.

The part with the flying looks decent. And why wouldn't it? Crimson Skies: HRtR was fun but I'm not sold that the same guys can make a proper shooter too.

the design of the enemies, (and the game as a whole) reminds me a lot of mass effect personally. the enemies especially look like something directly from mass effect. very geth-like

    Megido @GriftGFX: Id on't know. I didn't finish GTA5 but i felt like a LOT of the missions were complete throwaway garbage. The main story was mostly decent, but the rest? (7 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And right now there's a bit of a backlash against sandbox games in general. (21 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are plenty of examples of poor open world games, but there's also stuff like GTA5. I think it's a bit more nuanced than open world = bad is all. (23 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: I think you nailed it there though. "The best bits". Most open world sandbox games are filled with mediocrity and some good bits. (30 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yes.. that "build a world" part is where they design it. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: except not many are. they build a world, and stick quests in it. that's why open world RPG's quests are typically so shallow. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's no reason an open world can't be curated and designed. The best bits of every good sandbox are. (1 Hour ago)
