Am I the only one hearing a part of the Kameo soundtrack at 0:30?

I cannot remember the Kameo soundtrack very well. Any track in particular?

OT: I still have faith in Kamiya and co, but this was not a good showing of Scalebound, hope they go into the depth of customisations and whatnot a bit more as the co op right now feels super tacked on. Boss looks huge as all fuck though.

Looked it up. The track I was refering to is Hero's Theme. But the more I jump between listening to the two, the more I hear Peace Walker's main theme... :S

What is it with all the hipster style character designs in games these days? Gears has it, this has it, Final Fantasy has it, Watch Dogs has it, and I'm sure there's more.

Infamous: Second Son and Devil May Cry had it as well. It's the new trend in video games. Why? I don't know. Probably has something to do with Seattle. The trend is a stupid and terrible one, but there's not much you can do.

That aside, the game itself looks sort of boring. I liked the first trailer I saw, but the gameplay in this video just felt limited. There was minor diversity and almost no depth. Looks like you just spam your attacks until the health bar runs out.

The style ruins this. Its all over the place. Hipster douche protagonist. A dragon who looks like its ripped from panzer dragoon. Enemies that look like they were found on the final fantasy cutting room floor. if it all felt stylistically connected i think it would work better. But it just comes across as confused.

it's just fashionable
If they want contemporary clothes/looks they model them after successful trends

Makes sense. It's just a shame the protagonist seems to have been designed to fit in an entire different game. Lol.

yeah it's pretty off putting
We are outside the target demographic though. There are plenty of kids to eat this type of stuff up surely

I have said this before, but I really don't like the main character's looks/design. His face is so dumb... still, his face fits the voice and the dialogue perfectly, which means all 3 are dumb - imho.

Hopefully, we can wear full face helmets, that would help a lot.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (53 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (55 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (2 Hours ago)
