I really do need to see gameplay videos to form a proper opinion.

But from what i've seen so far, it looks interesting. One of those games that i'll be keeping an eye on.

WHAT? if its like ANYTHING it looks to be a mix of heavenly sword (large vistas, lots of enemies on screen) plus conan, in terms of the overally masculine atmosphere...looks ok, have a feeling it wont be tho.

yeah...what? comparing this to Uncharted is like comparing it to Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures.

wtf is up with the character design hahha, he's all fat and outta shape looking.

any game with trees = uncharted copy?

did you somehow forget uncharted is a tomb raider copy?

PC? I'm really interested, looks promising in terms of scale, graphics, and gameplay elements like platforming.

What are you smoking? Uncharted is a combo of Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones.
If anything this looks like a combination of Conan and the original Kingdom Under Fire re the RTS elements.

looks awsome, the last few shots with the trolls are especially impresive
Commented on 2008-01-13 00:58:30
a screen with a normal in-game camera angle would be nice...

and yes, more beard ftw
Commented on 2008-01-13 02:19:45
the hairstyle just don't look right, lol

this is sega so the game has a high chance of being great, who knows sega's god of war?

PC games always suck if they have a console counterpart, the 360 / ps3 versions rock, the pc version is buggy and shit, and more often than not you cant even change the resolution...

Oh man I hope this is going to be as good as Rune.
Demo please.

And Baleur, I believe you're thinking of console games that are ported to PC, yes, usually they are done half-assed and vise versa.

Game looks pretty sweet
If it's by the people who did Rome Total War I have faith

Well, if the story and gameplay know to convince, I'm all in. Just my type of game, and thematics. But graphicaly I'm a bit dissapointed... But it's just some screens. Need to see it in motion while gameplay. It always remembers me of the LOTR-trilogy on PS2. And a bit of Rune. Hope the athmosphere will be as strong as in Rune!!

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)
