Dark Void teaser

Dark Void teaser

It looks like Capcom decided that the usual teaser -> trailer -> gameplay video order wasn't that much of a good idea and released a teaser video of Dark Void, after released tons of videos last year. Why not?

Capcom really knows how to produce impressive in-engine cutscenes.

Excluding the 1 frame slideshow of gameplay bits, the cutscenes on the trailer are CG, if i'm not wrong.

Definitely CG.

I think I remember this...

Is this the game with 'vertical' gameplay, where you can hijack UFOs? I was impressed with what I saw last time.

And then I saw the same and same gameplay countless of times over and over again.

It seems like one of those good ideas trapped in generic levels/level design and shooting. The same encounter over again.

I still hope for the best, crimson skies was action pumped awesome!

Could be a decent game just like darkSector

Every single video game is CG, even the ones that look like they're hand-drawn :P

It's nothing like Dark Sector. This is a flight game with shooter mechanics. It's by the guys who did Crimson Skies on the original Xbox.

I think he means to say it could be a sleeper of a good game, like Dark Sector, that no one expects.

Seeing as this are the guys behind crimson skies, and Capcom as a publisher, being in the end just a "generic" resident evil 4 clone as Dark Sector was, would be a tad dissapointing.

But for what Dark Sector was, standard fare of copy+paste of successful formulas, it was good fun, nothing really better than the top cats in the industry, but pretty decent.

Well, it's got the word Dark in it...

:o)

Crimson Skies was brilliant! Sounds like a good omen to me.

Not bad, now if only they could show me the gameplay with as impressive stuff. :)

Looks pretty interesting!

Hope this is gonna be a good game. The bits of gameplay i've seen looked decent enough, only it got a bit boring along the way.
And why hasn't anybody picked up the Crimson Skies series? It's one of my favorite games on the xbox. it has a lot of flaws, but it's FUN.

If I recall, the CSkies director bought the rights to the franchise, but after they announced this game.

Not gonna put my word on that, though.

What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (17 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (19 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (19 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (21 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (23 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (24 minutes ago)
