Can't say I've ever played a game with Vikings myself, but this looks interesting. Did you see that 'epic' 2 foot jump over a crack? Good stuff :P Looks nitty-gritty.

German GamePro wrote that SEGA's GoldenAxe Team started again from scratch, after the internal Viking presentation - I guess they were ashamed ...

N3 went more I think.

I want to see that new Golden Axe Beast Rider, I like the art, and the female on the cover (which I have a high res wallpaper from it) reminds me of a better Kameo without transforming into anything.

But not at the sane level of detail though!

I don't know...the whole thing with the war in the beginning there really turned me off. I HATE games like N3 where you just mash like crazy on whatever button happens to be beneath your mighty thumb of doom at the moment. Games where a 500-hit combo is a weak combo are bad games in my book. But then i never did get a view of what it's like to play from this video. Oh well, i'm sure we'll get to see more of it in the future.

Oh man, I'm so disappointed, when i saw the "Creative Assembly" logo i was like..... OMG, is this the Realistic Medieval First Person Slasher, but no, yet again i was disappointed by the CONSOLE department of Creative Assembly, making another one of these Medieval fantasy slasher games.

But i guess it looks nice :'(, man am i so disappointed.

Neat setting, but slashers for massive damage are so last-gen. I'd like to see the same decors and characters in a first-person shooter. Why do those always have to be World War or future-oriented? Bring this on!

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
