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.

    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (38 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (40 minutes ago)

    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (42 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (55 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What's this about Half Life not having decent characters? Seriously? It practically set the bar as far as that went. Alyx, Barney, Eli, G-Man to name a few. (59 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I'm not saying it's impossible that another developer would want to do it and would do it justice. That's just rarely the case when a franchise changes hands. (3 Hours ago)
