Microsoft is rocking the house it at its Gamescom press conference in Cologne. They just showcased the first trailer of Scalebound, by Platinum Games.
It looked really rough. We'll see how it looks and performs come E3 next year.
They need to improve animations on the character. Looked fine overall.
Yeah the game isn't finished yet. I agree the animation need some improvement but the game looks awesome for sure. Didn't know it was RPGish. Kinda looks like a mixture of DmC, Final Fantasy and Horizon which is awesome in my book. This and Quantum Break make me want to buy an Xbox One.
The animations, framerate and voice over need some serious work. First 30fps game by Platinum?
FFXV demo on PS4 runs similarly (I own only ps4 along with that demo), early versions, no need to fuss over it.
it looks fine ...bizzare mash up ...but generally good
Agreed. i think animation needs more polish but this ign first extended gameplay vid is a lot smoother. http://www.ign.com/videos/2...
Game has potential but perhaps too early to know final product. However, I thought the voice acting was terrible. Also, why was the character they showed wearing headphones around his neck. That seemed strange.
Things I like.. the combat (your character) the world and the fact that you put on your headphones to give the amp up music.. but omg the framerate.. I realize it's early but omg it was killing me... I don't think i've ever seen a game look that rough for a reveal? Almost looked like it was struggling to run? but either way.. i'll hold off judgement until later.. But omg there are some ideas that I really hope they implement.. for instance... I watched the extended version on IGN and later when he got into a another fight sequence he put back on his headphones and the same song was playing... ugh :/ It would be AWESOME if they kinda let you customize or choose what songs come up.. (not real ones, well or maybe real ones.. not sure how I feel about that yet) and then have set new music for certain bosses and then you unlock that music after fighting the boss and could use it whenever you want after.. that'd be pretty cool. The combat also looked pretty hype.. wasn't digging sending the dragon to go destroy the building just seemed very.. meh but the boss fight looked great! and in the extended version when the dragon helped him take out a good amount of enemies also looked nice, although I will say.. except for the boss it didn't really seem like he would have had to do much.. just send the dragon on everything and sit back.. but obviously the game will get more difficult so no need to worry... I could really see this game coming along into something amazing :)
What are you talking about. It looked freaking amazing.
*What are you talking about. It looked freaking rough. Ever read an opinion before?
Pretty cool concept, they said its action/rpg, so kinda like FF15?
I thought it looked good being that it's still a year and half, maybe even two years (if it gets delayed) away from coming out. Though I must say I was kind of disappointed because I was expecting it to be a action game rather than an Action-RPG.
I think that's maybe why Kamiya had that outburst on Twitter. Maybe he wanted to show a live demo and MS wanted a pre-recorded demo. Also as most the demo's shown today were pre-recorded except for Scalebound.
It started off a little slow but it picked up and it looks great. My top X1 game. Of course the build will be a little rough right now the game is still a year away. The game shaping up nicely nonetheless.
Looks pretty decent so far.
Looks absolutely brilliant 4 player co op wow this game looks amazing
Kinda reminds me of lost planet 2...in a way. Is this gonna be xbone's answer for Horizon. Very cool indeed. Hopefully all the internal strife is overblown.
scalebound was announced before horizon, so it wasnt intended as answer I guess.
Just hated that the kid wouldn't shut up. That it came off as scripted. And look who's changing.
And these ridiculous headphones man, as if they wanted to appeal to the hipster crowd lol
Didn't know headphones are for hipsters now. I wonder if you had anything to say about bayonetta characters. Now THOSE were ridiculous.
Hipsters wouldn't be found dead in beats style headphones. Think you might be confusing hipsters with tossers.
I love characters like that. The cocky teenage brat.
dont bash me, but it looked too americanish, coming from Japanese developer.
Looks pretty good!
Blown away! 4 Player coop and the gameplay is just what I was hoping for! Definitely best in the show so far
Have to wait until you see how/if/when you control the dragon. If it just does what it wants when you're not on it, then what's the point?
You didn't see him giving orders to destroy the buildings and attack the monster? 0_0
Kamiya on stage it's a free roam world where you can explore on foot or on the back of a dragon. He gave it orders. And you could see that there is multiple locations when "Grasslands" pops up on the right.
But did *YOU* give the order though a controller, or did it just happen because it was scripted.
I thought he aimed at the buildings and it showed a circle or reticule thing appear as if he pressed a button. Like click the thumbstick or something.
I think QB was better.
Yeah. There's a target reticule. I stand corrected.
I hope you can fly it too all those other islands around. That would sell me this game.
Animation could use some work but . . . damn. This one holds a lot of promise.
The obstructionist fangirls are going hard on this one today, it seems. Be salty :)
Also looks great.
"TEAM, UNITE UP!" Oh, Platinum.
This game looks freaking amazing.
Platinum games know how to make awesome gameplay.
Headphones and Dragons...... i giggled a little Gameplay looks fantastic though.
I absolutely love this shit. It definitely exceed my expectations.
Your expectations must have been fairly low. It doesn't look that great to you, does it? Are you being honest with yourself? I'm not judging, it's a legitimate question. I think gamers these days are too quick to say they "love" something just because it's an exclusive and so they feel they have to love it by default. There is no shame in saying it needs work....after all we don't know when it will release yet.
Well your opinion is clouded by your fanboyism for PS which automatically makes your opinion irrelevant. I read your past comments, and it appears you don't have anything nice to say about Xbox or MS.
"I read your past comments, and it appears you don't have anything nice to say about Xbox or MS." Go figure hes part of that club. Its crowded in there.
Uhhh...I own a ps4, 360, ps3, and pc...and I bought my 360 last gen a year and a half before I bought my ps3 so........wrong again buddy. You're used to it.
Loved the colors in this. I think frame rate is low right now but they have 15 months!!! I'm getting it day 1 Medman it looks better than tlg thats for sure! That game looks like a ps3 game and its on a more powerful console
LOL...I tell you what. Let's wait for the reviews to roll in before you lose your head talking silliness. Team Ico is legend. Platinum is working on becoming legend.
Why's the combat so clunky and slow? The animations look really off too... Was expecting something more fast paced and more spectacular, like most of games coming out of Platinum Games. Having 4 player co-op is very nice.
TBH I thought scalebound was an action game. Needless to say the slower pace is what I would expect being that it's an Action-RPG.
The ponies are in full force today it looks like. Pathetic.
Are you guys getting a strange black box on the comments section?
butthurts , butthurts everywhere I'm a PS4 gamer and I say this game looks great , too bad its not truly an open world game ...
DMC + Monster Hunter = Scalebound ? The combat and animations looks way too rough. Maybe they showed the game a bit early. Still, it's a Platinum's game. I'm having high hope for it !
Really great reveal, especially the part with coop.
Looks like a great game. Seems to be rough in terms of fps, but a lot of games when presented looks rough at first but turned out to be a great game (bloodborne).
Scalebound and Quantum Break are two games I'd buy an Xbox One for.
Nice! Finally got to see what it's about! It's looking like something I'm gonna be picking up anyway!
I'm very underwhelmed... Which I did not expect. :/ Ill need to see more before I can comment further.
I remember alot of haters when Bayonetta was first shown, but people were like "OMG SHUT UP ITS KAMIYA, IT WILL DELIVER", and guess what, it did. The game looks very early stages but i definitely like what I see. Platinum studios have been delivering great titles till this date, and I have no doubt Kamiya will deliver on this.
Team Unite up, That made me LOL. Please come to PC. Kamiya ;0
Dat 10fps thooooooo
Really didn't like the adolescent dude bro cool guy attitude of the main character. Throwing on headphones didn't help.
"rocking the house" must mean something different these days. Part dragon dude bro with beats by Dre and terrible voice acting just really didn't do anything for me.
