PoliGame's Talks about the Gameplay footage of The Xbox exclusive Scalebound. Does this game actually live up to it's hype or does it fall flat. Which begs the question can we really trust CG trailers?
SB looks freaking amazing and 4 player co-op!
RIGHT!? That got me so excited!!!!! You can tell how excited i am by how many F bombs i dropped
Yeah that definitely made it easy to tell! The game is a day one purchase for me
Unfortunately I can't share your excitement for this game. There was nothing amazing or exciting in the 8 minute gameplay demonstration, in my opinion of course.
@'Genuine'user - I'm curious, did you like anything from Microsoft's conference?
@GearsdoodooBruh I know what it is. And I still don't think it looks amazing or exciting. RPG's have most definitely become my thing. Open-world, dragons and co-op do instill some hope in me, but from what I have seen so far, it's just not my thing. My opinion can change in the future.
@poppin Yep. Quantum Break was spectacular, Halo 5's multiplayer match was exhilarating and Crackdown's cloud-based destruction was impressive.
Good answer... I shall remove you from my list.
I wasn't expecting what was shown. I was expecting gameplay along the lines of Vanquish without all the tech -with Dragons. Wow, but what we got was something so much more impressive and I really like what Kamiya is cooking up with Scalebound. The details in the Dragons look absolutely amazing and the game world is so beautiful to look at too. This guy is right Microsoft have a winner on their hands with this game....thanks to the talented Kamiya-san. My only negative is the main character is a bit cocky+corny but Japanese made games always have that sort of vibe to me, its definitely nothing that will stop me from getting this game day 1.
It looked very good indeed. Personally, it could convince me to buy an XBO, but it would have to offer the option for Japanese voices. Not interested in dub-only releases.
Why would it be dubbed? The script is written in English, and is voiced in English, as it's original language, with an English speaking protagonist. It's not being developed, or written with Japanese as it's primary language, and then translated into English. That would be like expecting Vanquish, Metal Gear Rising, or Bayonetta, all games primarily targeted at a Western audience but developed by a Japanese developer to be voiced in Japanese as it's primary language.
@Kingdomcome: No it isn't. Games like Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising and Scalebound are made by Japanese, in Japan. It's creator, Kamiya, barely speaks a word of English, so I very VERY much doubt the original script would be in English. I want my entertainment in the original language whenever possible. In gaming, in 2015, with the possibilities we have now when it comes to storage and downloads, it's ALWAYS possible, and thus it should ALWAYS be offered as an option to have the original language.
So epic... can't wait to see what it's like to ride a dragon!
This game has me underwhelmed though...Graphics are nothing too fancy, just very vibrant solid colors but I guess it's the art style, I don't mind that. The gameplay elements just seemed to not bond together and the "cool" music playing along the demo didn't match the pace of the action of the game. I kind of like some of the enemies as they look to have a very old school art style like before games started trying too hard to look realistic. I'm not gonna criticize frame rate for obvious reason. Maybe they should have shown some co-op, because it looks too generic giving commands to a drake and watch it attack ;/ reminds me of Riley from cod ghost. And by the way, they fail hard at trying to create funny or entertaining moments with the boring main character, and the whole idea of him having headphones listening to music and try to make him cool is a bad attempt...very bad execution imo I own ps4, xbox one, and a pc for league of legends only so dont even call me a fan boy, just expressing my dissapointment...
It's pre-alpha and a year away. I thought it looked good even still.
@Vaporcell I'm with you all the way on this. You expressed my feelings exactly and in doing so pointed out that it's damn difficult to create a cool & likeable main character like Nathan Drake or even Delsin Rowe. It's so easy to go overboard on this, as you walk the fine line between relatable and caricatural.
I think the game looks good/average the animations look stiff and the framerate was all over the place
Yeah the frame rate was very odd. But, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, scone it was probably a very early build of the game. Plus dragons!!!
Yeah. Thankfully it's a year out from release. There's plenty of time for optimization. I'm very excited for this game, and I'm eager to hear more about how co-op will work.
Watch the IGN vid - much smoother... also, that was alpha footage, so it'll look even better when it releases.
Like the crackdown footage, the Scalebound footage was pre-alpha also. you expect those kind of things in unoptimised early code.
he does for xbox games
Yeah, it looked great. My only gripe so far is the MC design... He looks like Eminem :L
Eminem is an MC. ;)
so far it's pretty alpha but it doesn't look interesting and that's just for me personally. this game still have a long way before release so I know it will turn out just fine in a 8 minute demo I am not sure if they can really show much. it did have a lot of potential so I am excited nonetheless for me personally crackdown and quantum break were amazing. I read that crackdown destruction is online only. I hope they still offer great destruction to single player gamers
IT looks ok, but they need to improve in a lot of things.
The main character really annoyed me straight off the bat. The brash, cocky American just seemed out of place. A more European or even Japanese character would have been preferable. It would be like having Jessie from Breaking Bad (who I love) in Game of Thrones. Good actor, but that persona just doesnt fit that show. I'm also unsure about the gameplay but I'll reserve judgement on that. That can change and be refined but the character is likely to only grow more unlikeable the more he talks.
I share the same thoughts, im still excited though because it's platinum games and it's an action rpg. It was also only prealpha (apparently)
