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!!

  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Industry Icon is not usually for one game, but your contribution to the gaming industry I feel. There are several developers that I feel deserved it before Kojima I should have said. (27 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And heck one of my main complaints about the Monkey Island 1 remake is that you can't play the talky version with the OG graphics. Pixels don't offend me. (28 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A GOG version would be.. pretty much ScummVM. And you totally do not need HD assets to enjoy LucasArts games. Played Sam & Max Hit the Road like two months ago. It's still beautiful. (28 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If only GOG had a version. Either way, an HD remaster made just to work with new systems and some HD assets is all I need. (31 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Lost the CD a long time ago between movings. I have used ScummVM and VirtualBox before, but playing though a window or fullscreen at very low resolutions does more harm than good. (33 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: If you have the original you can just play it with ScummVM :) (48 minutes ago)
