Lords of the Fallen: Gameplay video

We finally got our hands on Lords of the Fallen's Old Monastery gameplay video. It's in 720p sadly but at least you can get a good look at it. The action-RPG title from CI Games will be released this year for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Get rid of the boring and obnoxious Dark/Demons Souls stamina attack nonsense, i hate being limited on how many attacks i can do in games, its dumb.

I like the artstyle, visuals and the design of main character, but the combat being pretty much Dark Souls from stamina to constantly keep going in circles with enemies for an opening turns me off instantly.
Though attack speedwise, this is faster.

Too Human without the good grinding and loot. I was hoping for a total too human spiritual successor when it was first revealed...but doesn't look like it will be that way

*gasp*

That's blasphemy! The Gamer's Bible clearly states in Chapter #1, Verse #1: "Man shall never speak ill of Demon's Souls and Dark Souls."

Repent from this sin yea hath commited this day!

Is this just a fighting game? I thought it may be more of an RPG, but from this video, it appears not.

Strange how it's current gen only too, as visually there's nothing to suggest it wouldn't run fine on last gen platforms.

Man, didn't take long for people to forget what previous gen consoles where capable of...lol.

At least you didn't say something moronic though, like "looks like a PS2 game"

I know, it's like they forgot what God of War III land The Last of Us looked like on the PS3.

One thing i like about the combat compared to Souls though is, its much faster which is good.
I need to see much more, maybe some power skills or something.

That's our Sath, If it requires pacing and strategy, it's gotta be shit!

Anyway, i'm not particularly impressed by this. The art is pretty boring and the gameplay has a lot to prove before i'm sold. I mean, with Darks Souls 2 coming in less than a month and then The Witcher 3 on the horizon, i don't see that this will be anything other than something in between, at best. But hey, i hope i'm wrong. Wouldn't complain if we got a good action/rpg thingy.

reminds me of darksiders with a pinch of too human. Looks very promising and almost complete i might add.

However it still feels kinda generic in the material, an "all male" selection of guys being over the age of 35, with some of them being bald. Had i not taken a chance to even look at this in motion; i would have passed it.

developers seriously need to stop shoving out more stereotypical He-man content.

If that's not what gamers want, then gamers need to stop supporting it. It's as simple as that. Developers and publishers have no goddamn obligation to follow some social justice whining. You, the consumer, has to either speak with your wallet and support what you want to see grow, or be the change yourself. From the inside.

Now, to be honest i'd like to see more games do storytelling right, and tell well thought out and fleshed out stories. But let's be real here, the big mass of players can't tell good storytelling from The Room (youtube it). I just don't think there's a lot of money to be made off of games that try to appeal to the demographics that appreciate solid and well thought out stories. At least not enough that a AAA publisher is gonna be willing to stick it's neck out for such a project anyway. No, smaller games and indies are probably gonna be the ones to supply the more "mature" content for the foreseeable future (and by mature i don't mean tits and gore). I haven't even played Gone Home (so i'm not commenting on the quality of the title, but rather the nature of it), but do you think EA would sink a couple million buckaroos in to that shit? I kinda doubt it. Not when they can make Dead Space 4: Lazermageddon and make their money back on release day.

If you got to decide every game would be a hack n slash.

I didnt say it gotta be shit, i just said its boring to me, meaning not something I would like to waste time on.

No, i would just get the games that are (or action RPGs) and not bother the ones that arent.

No, that's too broad for sath's tastes. Every game would be ninja gaiden...lol ;P

There should be a game were you play as a ninja with a beard with cargo pants with sword killing demons and monsters in norse myth in a snow environment, that would be great :P

I think what annoys me with Sath is this weird, backwards mindset. Only listens to orchestral music and nothing else, because that's the only music that can be good. Only likes a tiny handful of game types because, you know...no other type of game could deliver a sold experience that has other merits than third persion action games. It's just so utterly alien to me, i can't wrap my head around it at all. I just can't help but point it out when i see it :P

I mean come on man, open up a bit. Try to embrace NEW things. Turn based games can be fantastically exciting and heart pounding, so can slower paced games. Just give other stuff a chance.
Commented on 2014-02-19 22:06:31 In reply to Megido
What I like annoys you? good, let it burn into your soul until you go mad and bald lol

And orchestra isnt the only good music to me, you forgot electronical synth music like Blade Runner and Mass Effect or Tron Legacy sort of type, thats two genres :P

I beat Demons Souls, I played Lost Odyssey, Warcraft 3, Starcraft, Diablo 3....and more. Sure they are ALL hack and slash ninja gaiden type of games lol.
I have played a wide variety of genres, but the ones that i dont fancy, i dont need to go back to since i dont enjoy playing them. If i dont ennjoy playing them, why waste time on them.
Commented on 2014-02-19 22:14:32
I suppose that's because i din't think there are bad genres, just bad games. There are obviously types of games that you gravitate towards more, but to slate an entire game because it has a stamina bar? That's just dumb. It has NOTHING to do with how good the game is, how it plays or anything. It's just a mechanic that can be used in a variety of ways.

I mean, there are very few jRPGs i like but that doesn't mean that the genre is inherently flawed or unenjoyable for me. It just means that many of the games in it are of pretty low quality. Final Fantasy, in general, can eat a bag of dicks, Persona 4 is amazing.

Of course. though my money is spent sparingly and tends to venture in many genres. can't say that i haven't picked up a game with He-men in it; but it is still nice to see games that were all male (like gears of war) make a change for once.

I also very much appreciate the mass effect series as well, even with their criticisms their content still sets them apart from the many generic he-man only games out there.
