Hell yeah! omg I want this now!!

Combat looks decent, nice hit detection and weight.
But the weapon swinging looks too slow, but thats what you get when you have a bulky character lol.

I wish for Starcraft game that was like this, would be awesome. That game has great artdesign, this one not so much.

Sometimes I wonder if that's your actual opinion or you're just here to irritate the shit out of other people... :-)

WH40K not great art design? You must be joking....

Dont hate, I just dislike the artdesign in this game while I love the dark and moody tone of Starcraft.

You can like it if thats your liking, but I just dont like it very much.

To be the specific so you can trust me of why I dont like is, its the orcs they look like cartoony to me and not dark and vicious.
And the armor design is ugly as hell, but then again I dont fancy much on Starcraft's armor either.
I hate any bulky looking design.

well then, you are definitely in the wrong thread, dear Sath. Warhammer is all about bulkyness...

Well the combat looks fast for a guy in that armor, so thats a big plus.
As long as combat is satistfying and properly done, I will like it.

I love the hit detection and the weight behind it and the tiny visual glowing effects on the weapons, very great.

I am definitely very interested in this game.

I don't actually know why I ddin't knew about this game earlier, I would be all over it, maybe because I tought it was a MMO, just now I realize is a third person shooter with melee and gore that makes Gears gore like childplay.

Of course I will buy it, hell I will begin the hype train with this,...that freaking gore is so delicious!!

lol.

I hope they really get into all that dark stuff that Warhammer has to offer. Guys being permanently implented in mechs and stuff like that

The lighting and shadowing is nice.

As long as it's nowhere near the level present in gears games it'll be fine :)

Wow, didn't see that coming. Thought it would be a Gears rip-off, but this looks simply great. The particle effects are amazing with the blood clouds and the 'bullet' impacts. Those effects look even better than the Crysis 2 effects. Animation is so fluid. From I-don't-know-what-to-think to want-it.
Commented on 2011-05-25 22:34:01
It only has everything I ever wanted in a shooter, Vanquish shoul dhave had this gore and this kind of enemies and "that" would have made it the shotter of the forever, now it might be this for me.

Can't wait personally.
Commented on 2011-05-25 22:47:06
looks quite nice visually, but i don't think it's going to do very well review wise, maybe a sort of 7.5 average? we'll see

I agree with KORN. I was hyped for this game but now it looks like its going to get old fast. Looks very repetitive with zero gameplay diversity

Shooting same brain dead enemies over and over, reminds me of the Dynasty Warrior series

What about the melee?

You suddenly wanted to ignore that aspect of the game?
Commented on 2011-05-26 01:24:21
Oh man, I just found out that Mark Strong is voicing the main character.

This is going to be Epic!!

I think its just for "dramatic effect"

I saw some more gameplay snippets, I am surprised how fast he swings compared to this video, I enjoyed that.

Looks pretty good although I am not a huge fan of Warhammer it pretty much invented the bulky armour thing. Repetition might be an issue if you only fight one type of enemy but the weapons and melee look quite varied and the visceral aspects look satisfying.

Too much green orc.

Like the universe though.

What's up?

    rayy @Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (7 Hours ago)

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: No lies detected man, very true. I don't know why I didn't notice it before, then again my only way of seeing a HDR game was via a video or two. But now with my own games and being able to (12 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @Moonwalker: HDR does more for that "Wow!" factor than just increasing resolution to 4K. (12 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Tried out FM7 demo, FH3, Recore and man....what a difference. SDR looks dull in comparison now, jeez. In terms of colours for starters, sky and sun in FM7 and FH3 looks lovely, vivid. (13 Hours ago)
