Trailers of Bladestorm

Trailers of Bladestorm

Koei has released two trailers for Bladestorm, showing both the French and English side in war. The footage is obviously from the Playstation 3 version, as you'll see with all the logos in them.

Hmmm looks ok, very colourful for this sort of game.

It's a bit of a rip off of N3 though, I like the water spell at the end of the 2nd trailer.

This bit looked almost CGI like.. perhaps it was :S

looks like a n3 clone with ps2 gfx...

i know this is a lowres trailer, but nevertheless one has to wonder why ALL
screens/videos/whatever one sees of ps3 games look very much inferior to 360`s gfx.

lower polycount AND (more noticeable most of the time) far lower texture fidelity :(
it all looks blurry somehow, even when the polycount is almost on par with the 360.
and on top of that they add bloom like crazy so it looks like being shot through a smeared lens...

so, NOT sold ^_^

and yes, i`m a 360 fanboy :)

Well it's coming to the 360 aswell.

It's funny how many people are like "eww it's a PS3 game" when in fact it's for both platforms.

I must say, it's the first time I've heard someone manage to turn the ripoffness from N3 back at Dynasty Warriors. :)

N3 is quite different to DW though, well i think it is.

DW is more strategic, N3 is just a hack and slah em up.

it depends for which platform it is developed and for which one it`s ported :)
judging purely from the graphics i`d guess it was made for the ps3 and the 360 version will be the port. (if the 360 version looks the same)
i just wanted to make the point, that EVERYTHING i saw so far of ps3 stuff isn`t in the least "jawdropping" material. it`s standard or even more often SUB standard for this generation. I don`t expect graphics like in the bullshit videos from e3 2005 - (although when i think of gow... hehe, but i digress) but it should at least be as good - more like: BETTER than - the 360`s, considering all the sony crap about cell super computing, 4d, etc...
not that i believe one word from sony - with their track record in mind, who could :)

but even i expected something better than what they have to offer.

-> the point: i am dissapointed :o/

Most of what we have seen on the PS3 to date has been ported from the 360 to the PS3, so your theory is quite flawed. (a few titles like Motorstorm and resistance aren't, both of which look great)

The 360 has been around for over a year in gamers hands the PS3 only a few months, so you can't expect a whole bundle of AAA titles to be ready for launch.

I understand where you are coming from, but you have to actually think about why this is the case, the PS3 hasn't even got a AAA title out yet so you can hardly compare it's games to the likes of GoW.

But as you said you are a 360 fanboy so it makes little difference either way.

This game could look a whole lot better i agree, but its not the PS3 holding it back, its the developer. (bit of common sense goes a long way)

the devs had enough time to make better games than this!
remember that the devs didn`t just start to develop for the ps3 on release day...

the "first generation" 360 games, although somewhat underwhelming, even were more impressive imho.

and your two examples (motorstorm, fall of man), rather make my point. they look "OK", not great and surely not "system-selling-exceptional", which at this point they should be to rescue sony from its needlessly self-digged grave.

but i will stop now ^_^ this is enough fanboyism for one day ;o)

When you people say "better" what you mean is "games that appeal to me more than this!"

Regardless of what the majority of un-fans think of DW (and subsequent games by the same devs in essentially the same series - Samurai Warriors and this) they're very very competent and varied games. Koei aren't just gonna suddenly grow to Capcom or Konami's size and afford/have the manpower to make stuff look like Lost Planet/MGS4, and that's partially the reason these games are flogged at reduced RRP. They're still good though, and lots of people enjoy them.
