This actually looks pretty good.

Not bad, though it seems a little scratchy in places. Hard to tell.

IGN has a nice lengthy developer walkthrough video too

The video looks great, I hope it supports co-op.

Oooh interesting....looks like it may have a pretty good game play mechanic in place (of course hard to tell from this early kind of video).

Good idea for a game tho....could be one to watch. Looks like it was made for co-op as well but we shall see!

thres a surprise, this actually looks half decent, could be yet another good ARPG, rather those than JRPG's thats for sure

Are you kidding me, ACM? Rather than the japanese? So you don't looking forward to Eternal Sonata more than this? Lol...

This looks pretty nice as well, though. I don't like this type of character design, but otherwise interesting.

Looks impressive! Would be good to see more of the gameplay! Animations look top notch so far!

Ironically this sounds like the Eternal Darkness/God of War crossover that you'd expect Too Human to be.

Oh yes I'm liking that!

I wonder if it will follow the story of the Jason and the Argonauts film?
Hope so, as I want to snatch the Golden fleece :)

They are kind of following the original tale, but not word for word. You are searching for the Golden Fleece though :)

Rather than following the popular myth beat for beat, however, the creative team has taken several liberties to tell the story they want to tell. Instead of Jason pursuing the Golden Fleece because of a plot to kill him by his evil uncle Pelias, for example, Jason now seeks the Fleece to restore the life of his dead bride who was murdered on their wedding day (no word yet as to who the bride is; be it Jay's first spouse Medea, his second wife Glauce [who we suspect it is], or a completely fictional woman created for the videogame).

You find? I realise it's early, but I thought the animation looked pretty clunky. I really hope it isn't, as I too am a sucker for Greek mythology.

WOW!!! Well, THAT is a beautiful game.
Nice, and with a very interesting thematics.
I'll keep an eye on that game!!! More stuff, please!!!

Thanks for the link Kenshin2418! Me like Greek mythology(also Norse, I'm a native of the north), and I search for games of this kind. I think Rise of the Argonauts looks very good/promising... I'll be keeping an eye on this!

i hate JRPGs, i'll be avoiding eternal sonata and blue dragon like the plague, boring trash, i prefer to actually play my games, rather than watch cutscenes and press a button every 5 minutes during fights

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
