Viking Dev Diary #2

Viking Dev Diary #2

Sega released this second developer diary of Viking: Battle For Asgard, making that game look a tad more interesting than a mindless beat'em all game.

there are 2 games this reminds me of...the first being "rune : viking warlord" and the second being the very disney inspired "the mark of kri"

looks alright tho, doubt i'd pick it up however.

I seriously can't wait for this game.

Visually, it looks brilliant. Especially when you consider the proposed scale.

Like a lot of other games, i'd like a demo first. But even if they don't release one, I think i'd risk buying it anyway.

It's just so up my street - big battles, swords etc etc = good tiiiiiiiimes.

BIG SPOILER in the end: "... ends up being the savior of midgar". Now who would've expected that:P

Looks impressiv, very good!
Different game, but it reminds me of PRIMAL (does anybody remeber that cool game?).
Some levelparts and the athmosphere remind me of it, which is cool! Really looking forward for this game. Can't wait to slay some monsters with my sword ^^

    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (27 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (29 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (49 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (51 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (56 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (57 minutes ago)
