This sounds pretty similar to the Ninja gaiden demo on the original Xbox.

Yes freaking please!

This came out of the blue interms of demo so i am excited.
I just hope it plays great.


They also gave William (main character) a medium length stubble, only thing they changed to the design. He kind of reminds me of Joe Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden but with white hair.

PS. They better not fuck the controls up like N3G3 Razors Edge with their bullshit input lag on purpose, was obnoxious to play it (though combat was awesome).

I am soo ready for this type of an action game,brings back the feel goodness of playing on my ps2 with the oni series.

This is a pretty awesome gesture, and that's quite a long period of demo play.

Why? setting sure but gameplay its far from truth.

Its more like Bloodborne + Ninja Gaiden (xbox) + Onimusha combined.

I don't know if I like the whole temporary demo thingy. It's like giving me an hamburger, then kicking it out my mouth after I take one or two bites.

Yeah because thats not what Souls series and Bloodborne doesnt do.

This is TN first action RPG game so they need to balance and shit so i think its good they give us a alpha demo to test it with feedback so they can do it better when full version is out.

Unless you want a broken crap like NG3 Razors Edge with input delay.

Give them a break or just dont DL the demo.

but do they have to kick a hamburger from out my mouth to achieve this objective? I think not.

I'm running out of organs to sell for games. Might just have to make my own version of this game and cry in a corner.

DOAX3, Hyrule Warriors, Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z, Ninja Gaiden 3. If it's alright with everyone I'm going into this one sceptical.

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (15 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (31 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (33 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (33 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (38 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And "many" isn't a specific number. There are many 8088s :D (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But the exponential rate of progress means that you don't have to go back too far to make that true. A lot of the progress here was done in our lifetimes. That's amazing. (1 Hour ago)
