....can't proud of the ninjas. Wahhh...and the great thing is! It's HS week on gamepro! SOmething new every day. gameplay footage!?

I'm so sorry for doubting Sony marketting again.

Look at her in-game playable face...looks like their research into eye specular has paid off as well. Look at the lovely scenery - the grass and flowers and so many enemies! The shadows and the colours look great...ps3 games washed out my ass. (oooh that last sentence sounds strange...wouldn't need to go to woolworths then..)

I think...
You're the only person that is obsessed with this game on the same level as me. I've been watching this damn game for over two years now and the anticipation just grows with every bit of info. The shot of Nariko over the hundreds of soldiers has exciting potential! The shifting release dates are definitely driving me crazy though...
techie  +   3228d ago
Same here. I've always said it's about the games and I'll tell you this now. If HS was on the 360 I'd pick it over the ps3. Really this game is what dreams are made of lol.

I'm going to cambridge now to go and get a hands on test! Not too far for me. Dang. DOn't hype, don't hype. Calm.

Looks average... q: LOL no demo for a while figboy, it only entered Alpha last month.

Gene sounds like we have the same taste in games. I also can't wait for this or uncharted...David Jaffe said personally that Uncharted was breathtaking! hehe.

Note: I love these screens as they show of the scenery, but they are missing the bloom and HDR of previous gameplay...I'm sure that's coming back, and these are great to show the quality of the scenery and the colour to dispell the "ps3 games are washed out and uncolourful" also shows off the great shadows...really just look at the soft shadows on everything and the lighting of Nariko. It does look amazing...just want to see those Bloom affects back, because they gave a real atmosphere.

i'm obsessed with this title too
the environments are stunning and detailed, the scenery is grand, and the amount of enemies on screen is going to be just spectacular. they've also improved the texture of her hair.

SH!% D@^^ FU#&
this game is evrything i hoped it would and more

OH MY GOSH you can even see the ditail on the persons foot on PIC #8
Figboy  +   3228d ago
not true, Geneyus!
i'm just as obsessed, if not moreso, with Heavenly Sword than you also!

it doesn't help that i actually got to get my hands on it for 3 oh so brief minutes at E3 last year.

oh, Nariko, you c*cktease you!

Sony really needs to get a demo out for this game asap. like, this month.

i know the Ninja Gaiden Sigma demo is hitting this month (man, i can't wait for that one either), but a Heavenly Sword, Lair, and Warhawk demo would really be a kick in the pants for the PS3.

it *NEEDS* demos of upcoming potentially AAA games, instead of demos of games that have been released already.

on topic, HS looks great, and i can't wait. i'm really hoping it doesn't come out in September like what's been rumored. a July release would be golden.
GeneYus  +   3228d ago
I pity you Figboy...
Getting to play a demo of this game and having to wait as long as you have thus far would be torture... I'm going crazy and I've just seen pictures and the few videos. These screenshots are so great cause they actually show off scenes that we havent seen before! I feel like the last year has been so sparse in terms of new HS goodness so this batch of screens is just amazing. Its scary how good this game is starting to look. I loved the 2005 vs 2007 comparison photos. This and Uncharted are without a doubt my most looked forward to games of the year.
n4g sucks  +   3228d ago
Me too!!
OH MY GOD , these screen shots just gave me goose bumps. i cant believe nariko strated out looking like a jap anime character but look at her now. her hair is no longer so choppy and the skin textures look off the hook.(look at the toes.) her face looks less asian inspired and she actually has a butt now. PLEASE give me more sony i NEED this game like a crack head needs rocks..i think this will be the first game to show off some of that cell processor power, 2200 characters at once.......excuse me why i go walk off my chubby

Nice, this game looks better every time i see it.
Loudninja  +   3228d ago
Man it looks even better!
EnforcerOfTheTruth  +   3228d ago
I love God of War... I'm pretty sure I'll love that game too...and damn, that thing looks hot!
techie  +   3228d ago
You know they've fixed quite a few things. The hair for one..observe how it sits over the sword, no cutting...and how it is more flowing and less "choppy". The shadows for another, turning down the bloom a little. And the Depth of Field is amazing as it is not as blurred as it used to be. And note the left buttock q:

ps. instead of gamepro providing two of each and zooming in and cropping on them they shouldve given us 720p screens damn it as I'm sure Ninja Theory provided them with! grr naughty gamepro.

HAHA yeah didnt wanna say anything, but the ass shots were a plus, im sure GAMR would approve
Loudninja  +   3228d ago
ALL these enemies.
At frist I thought it would be like 2 or 3 at a time but damn
techie  +   3228d ago
Secret...2200...or more. Mark my words.
fenderputty  +   3228d ago
This is the game
I'm looking forward to the most right now. Did someone say HS week? New stuff all week? Awesome.
Loudninja  +   3228d ago
deepbrown you cannot be for real man
2,200 or more? running at a great framerate ?
techie  +   3228d ago
Not kidding. q:

Damn it I used up all my bubbles to tell you that! And I wanted to save them if someone came in hating. Oh well.

Boink. It's HS week at gamepro...something new everyday so gameplay footage has to be a must! :)

Ludwig...what's your point? The only difference is the blur...and that was gameplay footage from November last me it looks better.

ps. give me more bubbles and I can answer all (most) your HS questions. :)

MySwordIsHeavenly  +   3228d ago

I have it reserved. I'm so excited. It's unfortunate that many children will masturbate because of this game...
AppleSlime  +   3228d ago
Not just children...mark my words!
But, really, this game looks amazing. It'd be great to get a demo sometime.
DaTrooF  +   3228d ago
i dont know if everyone of you guys know about this,so...
well,i read somewhere that there will be big and small mythical monsters that you will be able to fight.anyone else knows about this?also does anyone know anything about boss battles?
TheGoodMART  +   3228d ago
guess the devs told the truth
Look at that (CG) picture from a month ago and now look at the real time game play. I think the game play one looks much better! Looks like she got a tan( like most of the American girls in winter)

if the in game screenshots looks this good, why not release some in game footage to help build the hype?

seems to make sense to me?
jwatt  +   3228d ago
Just go to youtube and type in heavenly sword, the videos are old but they should do.
Boink  +   3228d ago
the youtube vids are such crappy quality. I mean the company wants to take the time to capture these beautiful screens, why not capture some of the game and send it out?

I mean if it looks as good as these screens show, then that'll pretty much sell the game? it's basically free publicity.
wildcat  +   3228d ago
In due time
they will release gameplay videos and more screenshots. Remember, there was that period when there was nothing new of Heavenly Sword, and then all of a sudden they came out with screenies, trailers, and a commercial clip. I think some gameplay videos will be right around the corner, maybe I'm wishful thinking.

I didn't think this game would look better. If they're still working on the graphics I don't mind when it comes out.
wildcat  +   3228d ago
The platforming looks cool, jumping from rope to rope. I want them to release like at least a 5 min. video just showing off the environments and some battle sequences. I want to see how far they've gotten as far as the fighting goes.

DaTrooF  +   3228d ago
great comparison
but i have a feeling that this new screens that gamepro has just put out are about.....a couple of months old,but they are new to us.ny new info on gameplay?weapons?
xg-ei8ht  +   3228d ago
I can feel microsoft sweating already.

Bill is suddenly feeling hot hot hot.

Hot news on release, PS3 Sells another 3million. Game receives 10/10
stingray9191  +   3228d ago
Doubt it
I highly doubt bill is sweating it the xbox 360 has some really big heavy hitters coming out this year including Halo3, Mass Affect and Bioshok which I have already pre-ordered and they will all look better than this game...minus mass affect
marison  +   3228d ago
I have seem all the media from this game
and have always be impressed, till now...

The art direction is amazing, but the lighting effects lacks too much for me now.

Hope they change this before launch.
Anego Montoya FTMFW  +   3228d ago
the lighting.
you play games for lighting effects.
that`s un-fun.
i like lighting FX too, but don`t say that why your not impressed.
original seed  +   3228d ago
This just might be the game that makes me buy a PS3
I was going to wait for Little Big Planet but if this turns out good i'll be picking up a PS3 for sure
xg-ei8ht  +   3228d ago
Same here, i'll be picking up my ps3 xmas:) Plenty of sweet games by then.
StrboyM  +   3228d ago
she has
the best eye sockets in any polygon game. ever see the eye sockets on madden players....ughh scary
DaTrooF  +   3228d ago
her voice...
how do you guys think she will sound when she talks.ive just watch all the videos realeased and she hasnt talk in any of them.
BigE  +   3228d ago
Dont Be Fooled

PS3 Sucks. There are no games for it. All the games rated 9.0 or above are on XBOX360. These new screens are not that good. Nariko or whatever her name is looks very ugly. No attetion was paid to the details. Her hair looks choppy .. e.t.c


But really guys what i dont get is... there was a vid at the last E3 that showed Nariko pretty much castrating a dude, the primary costume she is wearing shows nudity... yet there is NO BLOOD. I dont understand it. Maybe the devs are trying to set a diff tone from god.o.w. But why add elements like i mentioned above if theres no blood.. The game will already get an M rating from that alone so whats holding em?!?

AMAZING GAME THOUGH .. i might add. Will get this Day 1.

GeneYus  +   3228d ago
there was a rumor
that the reason the game was delayed after the launch had to do with blood. Apparently they realised that the realism of the violence alone was going to stick them with an M rating and decided to just go all out. I really hope this is true because it means the game will be even crazier.
