After the CGI, they're all:

"Now please be excited for our game that will not even have 1% of what you have just watched for the last 8 minutes"

I like the Elder Scrolls, but after the combat in Dragon's Dogma (which I know is an action/RPG), I'm finding it difficult to get behind the next ES game.

Well they are entirely different games anyway, so i hardly think the comparison is justified.

This however, run of the mill mumerperger. Utterly bland and boring.

That is some INSANE CGI ... WOW!

Can't believe MS are still putting this shit behind their own paywall when it has its own to begin with. Do they care at all about how they are perceived by gamers?

Apparently you get AC4 black flag for free if you buy the imperial edition of this game on PC. Not bad. I think i'm done with pay 2 play MMO's though. Everquest next is the one i'm looking forward to.

No the beta had a NDA, unfortunately :P

Do you need a subscription to play this? I plan to get it on PC. not investing in any new consoles yet.
Commented on 2014-01-30 08:29:28
Yes, it's subscription based.

People whose buying decisions are affected positively by "cinematic trailers" are the cancer of gaming.

That elf chick is really powerful. Outstanding CGI, but please, make a new Terminator game!!!

now that would be epic to have open world mmo like dragon dogma, massive bosses that players could scale and fight, but what do we get instead garbage run the mill stand dps, stop heal, ok more dps... ok group here dps more.. heal.. oblah blah blah..

Why god why didn't they release this awesome CGI trailer in 1080p!?!? :( :( :(
Commented on 2014-01-30 21:04:21
Still catering to gamers with opulent CGI that bears no proper representation of the actual game and its gameplay? That's so last decade...
I mean, lots of ass-hat studios do it still and all the time -just look at AC and FF games- but doesn't this move annoy the hell out of you by now, too?
Commented on 2014-01-31 04:40:15
I have to agree with the pooch's comment above me, that this won't represent what the game actually will look like. However, it's still a beautiful looking trailer. I still watch that Assassin's Creed Revelations trailer that has Woodkid's "Iron" playing in the background! ...that trailer was just on another level of Epic!
Commented on 2014-01-31 18:33:29
That was really cool. I await the inevitable compilation video on Youtube in crunch-o-vision. I'll still watch it though.

The game? I dunno...

I will be on the fence with this one I wasn't that impressed with the beta.

About the game

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (50 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @jmd749: Kojima Productions is independent. wrap that and give it away to your other half. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Ultimates do drive big plays. Don't think it makes everyone Seagull. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I've played a ton of Halo too. Just not Halo 5 because I'm not a masochist. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tiz: "Individual skill" still drives top players to become top players in OW. The team with the better comp *and* better players is going to win. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tiz: Eh.. "more dependant on individual skill" is one way to look at it. (1 Hour ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @droezelke: it's awesome that one of the greatest minds in game development is given funding and respect. And using a hardware specific engine for his new game suggests he'll be a Sony 1st party dev. (1 Hour ago)
