I've yet to play anything from this series, or Korea in general, that was any fun... For what it's worth though they can model a decent elf ;)

So great, hope the Xbox 360 version is as good as this.

holy crap, that looks great!

So the bit at the start about being edited...is that a "edited" to hide our blunders and make this look awesome? or a "edited" to not traumatize the kiddies. (I sincerely hope the latter) though the game smacks of good ole Dynasty Warriors, I like the feel of it...its edgier and a little more chaotic.

awesome is awesome!!

The graphics are most impressive, no one can deny that but my biggest problem with this game and Ninety nine nights and all the dynasty warriors games is hit detection. U dont feel like you're hitting those thousands of enemies at all, it feels like you're cutting through paper .... I have high hopes for this and I hope it lives up to the hype

This is the PC version they're showing off. It looks freaking fantastic, hope the X360 version doesn't fall short... might buy it, haven't played any of their games though.

Fuck me, this looks amazing. this is what Dynasty Warriors SHOULD be looking like after all these years, not the shoddy PS2 ports that have been slapped upon us for the last few years.

Even the horses look incredible - best glue-donors this gen! (Sorry, couldn't resist...)

Amazing. Absolutely amazing.
Obviously from the PC version, but if the 360 version is anywhere near close, could be best looking console game this gen, especially when the consider the type of game it is as well.

Blimey, that is some impressive stuff. Hope the PC version has full 360 controller support.

It lives! Awesome :)

The graphics looks amazing,I dont even know what type of game its this but it sure looks insane in those screens.

Can't see the 360 version looking as sharp to be honest. If one thing that's disappointed this gen it's the lack of games with this sort of visuals and amount of enemies on screen at once. The first we seen on a current gen console was Kameo, where there were tonnes of goblins running around. Was impressive for the time, but I've not really seen too many games on the consoles taking advantage of so many NPC's on screen at once, which was supposed to be one of the big features this gen. Unless, of course, I've been under a rock and there has been?

Dead Rising had a lot of NPC's on screen. Dead Rising 2 probably even more.
You can see that the NPC's of the gameplay video's are not all indiviual NPC's, but grouped in pairs of three or four (copy paste style almost). It's still impressive to look at.

Of course it's not going to be as sharp as something running on the newest PC tech, but the Xbox 360 screens don't look that bad either.

I was going to comment on the lack of varied dialog. It could get really irritating real quick.

The graphics do look excellent ofcourse, but that's always been the case with this series. Unfortunately, that seems to be the only thing this developer excels at. Good, sustained gameplay has never been their forte. This doesn't appear to change the status quo.

Looks great, too bad it'll probably be about as much fun as getting your wang caught in a bear trap :P

Doubt it.... I expect CryEngine to be pretty damn good looking. And plenty of Games already look about as good as that (scaled back of course) on 360. Less sharp and all that, but close enough.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I just read IGN's Sea of Thieves article and it's clear that Rare has a lot planned for this game. I just wonder if they can have all of that finished in time. (1 minute ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz This is their plan for most of their games, if not all of their 1st party IP going forward. (7 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz People say Gears & Halo aren't as big as they used to be, while that is true, they've traded unit sales for microtransactions which is proving very profitable for them. (8 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Cultivating new studios takes time. MS have only demonstrated interest in established brands. If they can drop 2.5billion on Mohjang, then it is a very deliberate decision to not open/buy new studios. (10 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I could be wrong on this but didn't Phil Spencer say he wanted SoT to be a long term thing? A returning franchise like Halo, Gears and Forza? (19 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Back in October the Rare team didn't even confirm it for this year but going by what MS said, it seems to be a 2017 title now, (20 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker People recommended me to read this Sea of Thieves article for a while now, apparently it explains what the game will be all about. [url] (23 minutes ago)
