Gaiden already looked great and really there isn't much you can show that can make you go wow. Gaiden is a great series but for me it would need to match Bayonetta's complex sandbox approach before i went back to it- memorising combos is fine as you have to for Bayonetta, but it's how you can then apply these combos by way of altering their flow and coupled with other extra layers that truly make the excellent Gaiden comparitively lacking

Gameplay looks like shit, and this is from a hardcore fan of the franchise since NES.

QTE, SoB, no decapation, sword weapons only, online multiplayer...what a damn joke and insult.

But, I am hoping for something great out of what I saw from E3 (since these images are directly from E3 anyways) it has a long way to go.

So far, I am greatly dissapointed (I will still get it because I am a fan of NG overal but it sure wont be the best NG).

At this moment, I am more hyped for the new DMC than this which is shocking coming from me.

I think sales would suggest NG is now finished also. For many Itageki leaving anyway means it's just not the same. Bayonetta is the only i need in this genre

You'd still buy it after all you've said? How much of a slave are you? Reminds me of Sonic fans...

I would, but that doesnt mean I will love it.
There are some moves in NG3 that I really love from what I seen, so its enough for me to get it and enjoy it.

Yes, I am a hardcore fan of NG and always will be, I see it as a curse lol

Devil's Tird will probably be boring, can't tell from a 2013 title LOL, too early to say anything.

@Kaspyn
Having Sylvster Stallone as personal trainer might help :P

PS. Love the avatar!

It's sad to see Ryu sinking like this.

This really shows that they don't have a clue as to where to go with this franchise.

Weapons? yeah but only ONE this time. Dont want to spoil the fans now..
Blood? yeah but no decap.
Story? yeah but no NES quality (sad cuz were talking about NES here)
Characters? yeah add that girl from the NES-version BUT don't make it canon with that universe.
Gameplay? yeah add some bonecrushing moves BUT add QTE's.
Suit? yeah lets use that same suit again and again and again BUT add some minor differences so people won't think we're lazy.

In other words:

Make way for Dante and Cereza.

Hayashi is on my hate list tbh honest, he takes one step forward but 2 steps back, annoying person tbh.

I hate seeing my all time favorite character Ryu go down the abyss just because some prick like Hayashi dont know how to do a damn thing.

I dont know, the trailer didnt excite me at all. That trailer shows some hints to what the gameplay seems to be like, and the gunplay, well you could hear and see how the guns sound and enemies react to it once shot. Sure not raw footage but still, some hints.
Nice decapitions thats for sure, and the mobility was awesome.

I dont know but I wont say its gonna be awesome just yet, not after NG2 and considering the game isnt out until 2013 I think there is plenty of time to just let them work on it and show when its done.

Couldn't care less about this game or the new Team Ninja. Hayashi and his QTE hardon can go to hell

Have I missed something? What's up with the hate towards Team ninja? I think it looks great.

Ahhh now I get it.. " Itagaki produced two video game franchises that were commercial successes and earned him several promotions; he headed Tecmo's development team, Team Ninja, and sat on the executive board. He left the company after 16 years of service, filing a lawsuit against it for withholding bonus pay. His new team at Valhalla Game Studios, comprising other Team Ninja members, is currently working on a new game.[1]"

from wiki.

The hate is simple.

They added QTE, they added SoB which happens randomly and interrupts your combos, they removed weapon variations so its only katana swords now (if they add dual swords and Kitetsu or elemental swords with various moves then great), and the lack of crazy animations during UTs...etc.

Just too much nonsense added and nothing from the old what made NG, NG is there anymore other than Ryu himself and his Dragon Sword thats it.

But its not out intil maybe Q3 of 2012 so there is much more to see and what they have done, but so far, I dont like 99% of it
