For me the biggest attraction is the hand-to-hand combat. If its so well done like in videos, then its gonna be great! I always missed this deeper hand-to-hand combat in open world games. I hope its gonna be something similar to Batman combat system.

Whether the game's good or not, that's a darn impressive cast.

Activision is so going to regret their decision. But that's okay for me. XD

I don't think they will. I think this is going to tank personally. Which will just show that acti where right to abandon ship. Still shitty how acti pretty much dont publish anything outside of COD and movie license games tho.

I'm actually really impressed with the title so far. Biggest surprise of the year for me. It doesn't look like one of those games you will invest 100 hours in because you are deep in the story, but if the gameplay is as fun as it looks, it could have the Just Cause 2 effect and make me not care.

I'm also really surprised how well it looks graphically. The color palette, effects, and art style are all really well done, and really gives the feeling of being in Hong Kong. Love the fact they went a little more mature with the combat. I've always wanted a game with Batman style combat but a little more brutal results. I'm keeping my expectations rather low, but I think this could be a sleeper hit...

Actually, I wouldn't mind if the cast was famous or not. It's all about the delivery.

(and secretly, I'd love a Cantonese language option to make it more atmospheric!)

hmmm it will take a few more days to formulate my thoughts around the video ... initially I'm not sure what they are trying to pull other than tell me "Hey I'm Squ'nix and I am spending money on brand name voice acting for this GTA style game ... "

I was more impressed when I didn't know, so now I'm thinking - gimmick

Can't wait! I was so bummed when Activision decided to cancel it.

it just seems so much bigger now with that cast.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I checked again, their last broadcast is about 32 minutes and is about the Keep. The one after is from oct 20. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: It's going to be the X1 version for me. Hopefully we get to zoom in on characters too. Skyrim and Fallout 3 have that, you can zoom in/out and keep the cam there. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts DICE helped them a lot with the Frostbite 3 engine and they were able to push the visuals beyond BF4 in some aspects, like the water effects. And it really shows. Too much excited to wait till Nov 18. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The camera automatically zooms out when entering combat and zooms in after, but you can change the FOV with the mouse wheel. The visuals look amazing on PC, much more than on PS4 and XBO. (7 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: To access the archived livestream videos, click on BioWare and then on Past Transmissions. Today they showed a new region and a new story quest (but very early, so almost no spoilers). (7 Hours ago)
  • Sath
    Sath Main Theme from Lords of the Fallen [url] sounds great to me, kind of getting that Witcher style vibe. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I watched the X1 stream again, parts of it, i really hope so much that on console we can zoom on the character and lock it too, it totally kills immersion when camera is so far away. (10 Hours ago)
