TGS06: Lost Odyssey Intro

TGS06: Lost Odyssey Intro

Finally it's here ! Hironobu Sakaguchi was here to showcase Lost Odyssey, with the ten first minutes of the demo coming later this month. Here is the first part of this presentation (we wait for MS to greenlight the gameplay footage of both LO and BD), featuring a gorgeous CGI cinematic. I let you decide when the prerended stuff blend with ingame :)
Update: Sound synchronisation fixed.
Update : All videos from the press briefing have been removed.

Some of te best CGI I've ever seen for a game.
Commented on 2006-09-20 12:41:59
Surely there is no gameplay there until perhaps the VERY VERY last second...

THAT WAS INSANE tho....i can't actually believe i just watched it...

Transition between CGI and real-time is awesome - I think it's one of the moments that will define next-gen:)

I don't think there was Pre-rendered footage in there. It looked pretty neat, especially the shamans reviving your soldiers. I just hope it doesn't follow the dynasty warriors or N3 type gameplay.

It doesn't. It seems to be turn based in the demo but apparently the combat engine is not fully implemented in the demo.

Yup. last five seconds are ingame and as you can see you can barely tell the difference.

Does anyone else get sound sync issues with all these TGS videos?

Best graphics on 360 - hands down.

Takes GoW easily, by number of models on screen. Animation was also smooth, frame rate was smooth - and resolutions were just as high.

Looks like MS hit the jackpot. This game looks Incredible, easily topping FF

I stumbled upon the rest of the vid, worse quality than the always excellent xboxyde coverage so I advise everyone to wait for that. But DAMN! did that look awesome, it totally blurrs the lines between gameplay and the other stuff wich you shouldnt really call pre-rendered anymore since it has become such a part of "living" the game... it's a complete, seamless experience and it just breathes this mix of FFVII, Spirits within and panzer dragoon saga.... Nr.1 most anticipated for me.

*gives round of applause to Mistwalker*

Best vid I've seen for a long time.

Commented on 2006-09-20 15:59:14
Thanks for posting it.
Commented on 2006-09-20 16:04:44
Did it change to realtime on the last swing of the camera or as soon as the hud thing came up.
Looks amazing!!

That's incredible, it's seamless CG into gameplay, thanks for the upload :)

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Oh and I loved the violence, yep. I never liked how there was barely any blood in the previous films, impossible when you have someone like Wolverine cleaning house. This is how it's done. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker And I'm so glad I watched the previous X-men movies first, specifically the two Wolverine movies, otherwise some things wouldn't have made sense (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Logan was absolutely fantastic. In terms of acting, emotion, character development it's in a different league than the other X-men movies. Fucking loved it. And man, Jackman is a boss! (5 Hours ago)
