After two other quick announcements, Scalebound hit the stage from Platinum Games. Stepping up to discuss it, they quickly said it was the biggest game that Platinum had ever worked on and that they were excited for it.
Looks great. My only complaint is that I could do without the sword swipe effects that cover the entire width of the screen. Other than that minor thing, looks sweet.
Lol. Its Kamiya. Remember that sp move in bayonetta ,the one where a huge leg covers half of the screen? lol
Yeah I know. lol And after about a few minutes I'll likely never notice it again, it just seems unnecessary. Game looks sweet, though, and co-op is always a huge plus!
Different then i expected. Looks good although it feels like a capcom game to me for some reason.
Monster Hunter perhaps?
Looks like a great game BUT..... The main character is clearly a DOUCHE. Beats headphones with a sword? Those smart a$$ quips when stuff is trying to kill you. Sorry - I'm 40. I need a character that goes around telling all those young punk dragons to pull their pants up! Also looks like too much of a beat'em up. Like SSOD. I would prefer to kill the TECH angle and go full RPG. I don't want a sword and grenades. I want to be able to cast fireballs.
I'm not a fan of the way he looks (contemporary clothes/headphones) myself as the enemies here or more historical/fantasy oriented (armored humans) but if there is a reason I can live with it. Otherwise I liked everything else about it but it isn't what I expected either. It's a platinum game so wasn't expecting it to be normal though.
From the Synopsis it sounds like he's transported to this world... Kind of like Inuyasha so he's not supposed to be there.
Dragons dogma meets sunset overdrive was my initial reaction.
When dude transformed midway through it showed inspiration for what Naughty Dog could do with Jak this gen Except multiply it threefold.
~Hold the phone Mabel, is the 4 player co-op what Hideki Kamiya was so pissed off about a week ago? I feel like that wasn't part of the deal and Microsoft may have demanded he put it in recently for the Gamescom showing? Be that as it may, I anticipate this is the part where people are going to start complaining about the male lead being to pretty boy and demand he look like some barbarous neanderthal from Skyrim? I love Hideki Kamiya and His games so he can troll the ever living **** out of people on twitter to his hearts desire as far as I'm concerned.
I heard Scalebound did not look impressive. Load of Crap, Scalebound looks amazing!! I'm getting a Devil May Cry/Dragon's Dogma Vibe. But damn is the main characters Teenie Angst Voice over depressing. Please change /
