looks stupid... like some DMC or NG wannabe.

So...the graphics are kind of sucky, they changed Sol into Ky but with brown hair and it will play like dynasty warriors? God i'm disappointed.

I was kind of hoping this would be like DMC or NG only with the awesome characters from GG...but i guess not. I might still try it out but i have very low expectations right now.

this game must be better than those wargames in FP-view.....

Could the HUD be any bigger? It must be hell on SD TV's...

Kinda tired of these arcady games... At least make the HUD A) more attractive and B) less in the way...

And I thought this was a shooter for some reason at the name (not familiar with the GG series...)

looks like another PS2 port. There was alot of buzz for this game, so I will atleast try out the demo.

The graphics look reasonably decent, it's just the over-powering HUD - TOO MUCH INFORMATION!

I, too, tried the jap(?) demo.
I love GG and DotA, and while I sucked at the demo I think it's because I don't understand moonspeak and didn't know what the hell I'm supposed to do.

This game has potential, I think. For DotA lovers, and who are not into those semi-realistic'ish KOEI series.

only main player model may look like a PS2 or Wii game but those consoles never handle this many units at the same time on screen. this game is not a simple action but basically RTS with fighter character as a master unit. totally new genre. not close to DMC nor NG at all. far more RTS than Dynasty Warriors but with simple map. rules and systems are bit too complicated and tempo is also too hectic so you guys might wanna hold final comment until english demo finally arrives if possible and know what's what exactly.

The graphics are fine seriouly. To everyone that say its look 1999 or PS2: wtf are you smoking. It would be lagging like grazy if this was on PS2.

    nostradamus @droezelke: seems a tad short, but not much would be expected. If it supports powerbanks, then its on. (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke First test done with the Switch using Zelda. They could play for 2h 28 minutes on full battery. (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker constantly too. Man if only that pro controller had a 3.5mm output. Do they finally have that for Switch pro conrrller? (14 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker It should be a nomal 3.5mm output on my TV yeah. But what b0vril says could be true, sound may not be as clean. So i'll probably go with the hassle. Will be needing to keep the gamepad in the charger (14 Hours ago)

    Ian_Nottingham I've been looking for a great movie that's engaging from start to finish.Don't know which one you folks listed to start with though. (14 Hours ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg @Moonwalker: Isn't it just a regualr 3,5mm output? Those extension cables are very affordable. If you have usb or optical output then it's another matter. (14 Hours ago)
