Amazing artstyle.

Day 1 buy.

Day 1 for me too. It's a sheer joy to play so smooth and fluid, even watching somebody else it is a joy to watch. The art is Amazing its constantly changing it's just beautiful never seen anything like it. The demo pushed me over the edge and I went out and pre-ordered it, April 28th can't come soon enough.

Looks awesome, and it seems it plays good, will try the demo.

@DJmizuhara:

How is the hit detection? also can you give me more or less how it feels teh combat, like Bayonetta? DMC? GoW?

Thanks.

DMC with rhythm based combos...it's so smooth. It takes a little while to get to but once you get it it's like butter. Hit detection seems pretty much spot on no complaints here.

Nice attacks, polished.
Thats about all I can say, the rest looks very unappealing to me.

LOVE the art style, hate the main character

Damn nice game, day one. The art style is amazing and characters aren't bad either. Fluid and nice animations, great graphics and gameplay. Played the demo on PS3 but probably wil buy for x360.

What's your thoughts on the platforming and camera angles?

Played like 2 mins of this game and already knew the game is for me. I really don't need to play the demo anymore. Im already sold on this.

You played the demo for 2 minutes, then turned your console off? Impressive. Maybe I'll try that with Arkham City demo, play it for 1 minute, turn my console off, wait for Day 1. Beat that!

I just now created a Japanese account, but of course also have silver. The cool thing is, my sister knows a lot of Japanese, so I could make her translate the dialog.

About the game

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MrWhite: Yeah i honestly had not expected that. I've always believed we would never get the impact of a Mario 64 anymore or OOT, but if we go by Edge......damn. But i'll believe that when i see it:) (13 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite That is some seriously high praise. It's lifted my anticipation through the roof. (20 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Moonwalker: Where arbitrary review scores fail is conveying any kind of context or comparison to give a sense of just how good something is. It's summaries like that that hammers the point home. (21 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Moonwalker: EDGE has always had a soft spot for nintendo anyway. (28 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Edge's conclusion is.....holy shitballs... [url] (41 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Moonwalker: Yeah, it's indicative of not only gaming culture today, but anywhere with a forum in general, sadly. (54 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I was thinking about playing it in a month or two when it's a little easier to find a Switch but I don't know if I'll wait. (55 minutes ago)
