Funny picture...A ninja standing on one leg trying to aim at ryu with an arrow :P

The music during the spider boss is amazing, especially near the end of it.

One of the best games of 2008 for sure, atleast for me :D

Sorry to ruin it but I see both legs. :P

Is screen tearing due to bad encoding? I never noticed it in earlier videos, but it's there in this one.

I love how amazingly fast this game is.:)

do they really need all that amount of blood? I mean, not that i am conservative against violence or anything, its just that it looks stupid

Daamn thats so brutal!! Its gonna be twice as hard as the first game.

Only thing I dont like about the game is the sound effects, not enough variation. Ching Ching Ching, Splat Ching Splat Splat. After several hours of play thats gonna get quite annoying, and I'll want to play my own music.
Commented on 2007-12-19 14:00:32
Man, I'm going to need some sort of special controller to keep up with all the splatter. Looks great.

Show some boobs already, Itagaki.

Love the move, when he's running up the wall and sliecing the ne standing below him in two (it's at 0:06). Blood doesn't look stupid to me. It'll be like GoW for me: Omg, did you see that? I just bowed him and his brain actually splattered all over the ceiling above him.

And it's funning at 60 fps, and I'm sure they got enough recources to enable vsync. Besides I didn't see any screen tearing...

Dang, looks like they upped the gfx a notch with this batch of pictures. Maybe its just me but it look a lot better now compared to last time?

So silky smooth in it's execution. Best fighting mechanics of any action adventure I have ever played.

This and the original are two different games, so you can't say for sure. I mean, i hope that this will be as great as NG, and it probably will be, but we can't be sure. Maybe Itagaki has just gone cold turkey after a 20 year long bender and simply can't make good games any more? Kind of unlikely and you probably won't get my point anyways, but you don't know if NG2 is any good and neither do i :)

Just wait to play the game before you state the awesomeness of it as a fact, ya? Still, the hype is on. This is one of the games where i allow myself to hope for greatness.

From what we've seen, NG2 looks a lot like NG but with minor additions and faster gameplay. Assumptions can be made that at least the gameplay will be fantastic. It's not like they are straying from the course and giving us a reason to doubt them.

"So silky smooth in it's execution. Best fighting mechanics of any action adventure I have ever played."

His first sentence could be talking about either game, and he wouldn't be wrong in saying that NG2 has silky smooth execution even if he didn't play it. If he hasn't played it, then his second sentence is in reference to the first one, and you can't argue that for him, NG has the best fighting mechanics of any action adv that he has played.

The ANIMATION looks smooth, the GRAPHICS might look good (subjective experience) but we don't know shit about how it will play yet. Like i said, it's very unlikely to suck but we can't know until at least a demo is available or some one tests it and forms an opinion. That's all i'm saying :)

Just for the sake of it i even have an example. Devil may Cry. DMC was a wonderful game but it's sequel sucked so hard that a black hole seems insignificant by comparison. Then they rectified it in part 3 but never mind that.

Can't wait for this one. DMC4 is just going to warm me up for fast paced intense action that is NG2. :)
