Not bad, though it seems a little scratchy in places. Hard to tell.

Oooh interesting....looks like it may have a pretty good game play mechanic in place (of course hard to tell from this early kind of video).

Good idea for a game tho....could be one to watch. Looks like it was made for co-op as well but we shall see!

Are you kidding me, ACM? Rather than the japanese? So you don't looking forward to Eternal Sonata more than this? Lol...

This looks pretty nice as well, though. I don't like this type of character design, but otherwise interesting.

Looks impressive! Would be good to see more of the gameplay! Animations look top notch so far!

Ironically this sounds like the Eternal Darkness/God of War crossover that you'd expect Too Human to be.

Oh yes I'm liking that!

I wonder if it will follow the story of the Jason and the Argonauts film?
Hope so, as I want to snatch the Golden fleece :)

They are kind of following the original tale, but not word for word. You are searching for the Golden Fleece though :)
Rather than following the popular myth beat for beat, however, the creative team has taken several liberties to tell the story they want to tell. Instead of Jason pursuing the Golden Fleece because of a plot to kill him by his evil uncle Pelias, for example, Jason now seeks the Fleece to restore the life of his dead bride who was murdered on their wedding day (no word yet as to who the bride is; be it Jay's first spouse Medea, his second wife Glauce [who we suspect it is], or a completely fictional woman created for the videogame).

You find? I realise it's early, but I thought the animation looked pretty clunky. I really hope it isn't, as I too am a sucker for Greek mythology.

Thanks for the link Kenshin2418! Me like Greek mythology(also Norse, I'm a native of the north), and I search for games of this kind. I think Rise of the Argonauts looks very good/promising... I'll be keeping an eye on this!

i hate JRPGs, i'll be avoiding eternal sonata and blue dragon like the plague, boring trash, i prefer to actually play my games, rather than watch cutscenes and press a button every 5 minutes during fights

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I would honestly be surprised if both the next Xbox and ps5 don't just look like simple black plastic boxes. (23 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I can't imagine Sony coming along 10 years too late and adopting that styling when it's clearly not what is considered good design anymore. (23 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I just look at Sony's consumer design and it doesn't fit at all. Electronics are about clean lines and boxy shapes. Even in the PC space that fuck ugly vent covered alien ware design has fizzled out. (23 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @MrWhite: for the same reason they stuck a big metal.faceplate to the PS4 dev kit? I mean. They could have just made that a plastic box too. (23 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite It looks like a big dirty wifi router of some sort. Which makes sense if you think about where gaming is going. Especially if they want to make the PSVR2 wireless. (23 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite Yeah, but as I say, why not just make it a big ugly box, then? Why's it that shape? could be wrong, like. But if its close to the actual thing, I wouldnt be shocked. (23 Hours ago)
