Probably my most anticipated titles this year.

Love everything about it and looks alot better than the first one.
Death is way faster to move and combat is really fast as well, setting is only fantasy in another realm and not earth-mixed like the first one (meh) and its very colorful now.

I am also liking that they have added light RPG with loot and outfit customization and talking to more NPCs.

Can't wait!

To be honest I didn't care much for what was shown since I really want to just hear more of Death's voice. Something was truly epic about Wars gruff manner, and whilst the four or so words that I've heard from Death provide some reprieve as its icy coolness has its quality, it's not enough to satisfy.

A great game, can't wait for part 2. Definately on of the games I am getting as it comes out.

Wait, they better explain why Death can die in the game, surely there must be a story explanation if that's possible? Will Death become mortal to die? Will it be like the Prey death system?

Darksiders 2, you got some 'splaining to do! ;)

About the game

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog for me the more important games in VR are the ones from indie studio's who are conceptually not playing it safe, they're experimental and unique and are offering experiences we wouldn't get otherwise (22 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but for consumers it's one of the most "standard" experiences in VR in the sense its a normal game we're accustomed to. (25 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i'd actually consider RE7 to be one of the safer experiences in VR becasue it is a mainstream title. i mean, it's added work from capcoms point of view (25 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: looks a bit like Audioshield, which is good fun. [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth engines to get good results. graphics hardware would also need more than a few changes. I think this will the biggest hurdle to get devs to support VR (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and some of them not that far away. problem is more on the software side. eye-tracking with foveated rendering doesn't work well with traditional rasterization, and would require fully rewritten (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @MrWhite: wireless HMD, inside-out tracking. great for convenience. Eye tracking+4K'ish displays, improved clarity without (potentially) killing performance. important for the VR onwards. (1 Hour ago)
