Marilyn Manson + medieval combat + demons + heavy gore + dragons + erotic potential = awesomeness

Very good trailer. Though the voiceovers were sort of shitty.

wasn't there a game very similar to this with like 10000 onscreen characters at once or something i cant remember the name but i know it was a sequel

anyway this one looks prety nice, demons and dragons and the ol' fashion goodness.

Blim are the adverts meant to always pop up? I dunno if its just me but they cover the media bar so I can't change volume or rewind without clicking them and they kinda get in the video's way.

As for the game, it looks interesting, as to whether or not it'll be good though, I doubt it much as of now

That music... urgh. It ruined the trailer, which was actually pretty awesome.

Graphics look pretty crappy if you ask me, looks like its going for alot on screen at once though.
Commented on 2009-05-11 20:52:38
well, the trailer made it look pretty dam awsome.

Marilyn Manson + violence and blood for the sake of gore (like MK) = lame

It's the animations making the game look bad. When they guy is yelling at the beginning his mouth is open just a slit. When the girl arches her head back it looks so bad and computery, reminds me of ~2001 level animation.

good cut scenes.. but i just cant get jazzed about the gameplay - which looks standard PC rpg affair.. the type that doesnt translate well to console, or asevolved as console rpgs.

More "point and click", than Mass effect

the whole speech and trailer music was awesome, the cutscenes and game graphics just didn't suit it..it sounded more like something that would've rocked for an underworld movie trailer

I couldn't watch that due to the painful noise coming out of my speakers. What a load of crap.

doesn't look as hot as mass effect or kotor...Jade empire team must be working on this

wouldn't mind if they were. Jade Empire's gameplay may have needed more tuning, but artistically it blew bout KOTOR (admittedly limited by the franchise) and Mass Effect (and all its completely-ripping-off-roddenberry cliche-ness, not to mention simply miniscule amount of actual variety of...well...just about everything) away.

this looks sweet, good blood splatter effects
Commented on 2009-05-12 02:26:24
nice! i liked the music. i think it went pretty well with the hyper violence being displayed. blood and gore everywhere and a sex scene thrown in too. wonder if they'll actually show them having sex unlike in mass effect where it was just "suggested" sex. seems like bioware is pushing the envelope pretty close to the max with this one.

lol why else would you have violence and blood in ANY game or movie what so ever, if not for the sake of gore? It'd be more lame if it was censored for the sake of selling more copies to kids ;>

hmmm, hilarious, but it actually decreased my interest...much more interested in ME 2 right now
Commented on 2009-05-12 09:40:01
Awesome , since there is no news about next Elder scrolls , the medieval craving will be satisfied with this.
Will be interesting to see how they transfer controls to consoles.

Personally I think it looks poor.

From the awkward sex scene to the horrific facial animation.

I know Bioware don't exactly focus on making great graphics, but I honestly thought this trailer showed a game lacking in every department.
Commented on 2009-05-12 14:36:21
As long as there is actual role playing in there i couldn't care less about shitty facial animation :)
Commented on 2009-05-12 14:48:43
The thing that is tweakin me is the lack of facial expression, and the voice over just doesn't fit the animation. I was turned off at first, but upon watching it again, there is some definite potential...as long as they keep it all badass.

About the game

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (8 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (8 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (17 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog It’s gameplay is objectively worse. As are it’s quests, narrative and lore. Skyrim was shit. (54 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: ones broken, one isn’t. That’s all there really is to it. For all your whining about shit combat in Witcher, i don’t really see how you could possibly give elders scrolls a pass? (56 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth "The updated GameWorks SDK, coming soon, includes ray-traced area shadows and ray-traced glossy reflections.". and this is what they say will be in a game this year. Not full, pure, 100% raytracer. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @droezelke: not sure i follow you there. The tech MS has in DXR, and Nvidia supports with their so called RTX hardware support is not fully raytraced rendering, but as nvidia says in their own blog: (1 Hour ago)
