Our videos of Dust An Elysian Tail

Today is a big day for Xbox Live Arcade lovers as Dust: An Elysian Tail is about to be released for 1200 Microsoft Points. Since we only got the game yesterday, we haven't had time to play much, but suffice to say it is a very promising title. First and foremost, it looks great and the gameplay mechanics are a lot of fun. Here are a first batch of videos showing the first 20 minutes of the adventure. More will follow as soon as possible for those who need to see more before making up their mind.
Update 2: One last videos added.

What? The story bit just utterly destroyed my previous interest in the game. It was beyond horrible. It's like a fanfic by a 12-year old japanophile.

Aside from the whole "furry thing" this looks good, too bad it's not on PSN.

It really isn't that bad at all. No doubt alot of people will hate it just because it's too soft, and doesn't embrace the gritty, dark or "badass" aesthetic that alot of gamers gush over.

Hmm let's see... It's GamesCom time, so i suppose trolling season must have slipped past me unnoticed once again ? Next year i'll be ready in time, i promise.

When I played this back at PAX briefly I wasn't very thrilled about it.
It does look gorgeous though, and it's impressive it's just made by one dude

Got the game, played it for 1,5hrs and wow I LOVE it. It makes me feel like being kid playing some oldskool genesis platofrmers. Its beautiful, charming, smooth and so much fun to play. LOVE IT.

It looks fine, great actually, the story is just shite and the dialogue is awkward.

Not really but this seems to be a lot more story driven than a few VS matches in Tekken.

Have to agree with Megido about that intro. WTF! Who wrote that? A 6 year old?

Played the demo a few times now and the combat had me a bit bored. Obviously it builds up into more but i can happily live without this one

I'm not a fan of the character designs at all.. but the game looks awesome. I can forgive some shitty dialog too.

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. (4 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. (4 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. (4 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. (4 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. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (4 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? (4 Hours ago)
