Heavenly Sword: Mocap with Andy Serkis

Sony released this video showing Andy Serkis performance during the Motion Capture recording of Heavenly Sword. This should make some nice cutscenes :)

This site really needs an influx off Xbox owners to spice things up!

Holy crap, he was really starting to freak me out at the end there. And he was almost starting to slip into Golum mode.

They said in an interview at Gamers Day that the "sacred genitals" bit isn't going to make it into the final game. I don't know if that means the whole scene or what.

This is a year old clip (at least almost), it surfaced the web in maybe July 2006, or August.

The funny (or not-so-funny) thing is, the King isn't even the craziest character in the game, that honor goes to someone else (a character we apparently haven't seen yet). There's someone even more twisted & sick than the King.

And yeah, the sacred genitals part won't be in the game. Though, they did say some other equally silly lines did get in.

I thought I'd seen this but I hadn't.. not in its entirety. Very good performance indeed, and one of those rare occasions when you really get to watch someone get into their role. Even more impressive is the fact that it truly comes across in the CG character's performance aswell. I hope the King gets his due screen time in the final game.

They really should give awards for digital performances like Andy's. He gives stronger digital performances than alot of people give real performances in hollywood.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (21 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (22 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (22 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (43 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (44 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (50 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (1 Hour ago)
