An xtreme X-Play's close-up of the PS3 action game Heavenly Sword.
this game looks so hot!
This game does look very impressive. I have been waiting for this game ever since I got my PS3, and even before then. Now I don't know if this game will be a AAA title, or even if it will be a system seller. No one does. But 1 thing is for sure. This game WILL be in my video game library.
Edit: WOW, someone disagrees with almost everyone here. Coincidence, I think not. lol It's fine to diagree, but atleast give your reasons why.
this game looks amazing!!!!
This IS one of the games I bought the PS3 for. Every new preview has looked better both graphically and gameplay.
I think this will shift a few systems, not just because it looks nice, but it show cases what the PS3 can do.
Yea Sessler you do so well to not be excited about ANY PS3 game, well except for ratchet and clank. I think they have their fav developers who they are loyal to over there.
Edit: seems a troll got in the room and is disagreeing with everyone and taking bubbles, seriously some people need to either get a life of just go kill themself.
Sessler and Webb are flaming Nintendo fanboys/girls. They have an intense hatred of Sony.
I can hardly wait to play HS. Would have been nice if it would have been launched in the PS3's "launch window" back in March.
It's funny, because I had the exact same impression you did; despite my enjoyment of watching X-Play (with its warped and twisted sense of humor) I realized that most anyone on G4TV in general, seldom has anything good to say about the PS3...
...and then I was taken aback last week, when upon surfing the X-Play section, I came across a video titled 'Adam's Assessment'...an interview-format blurb from Sessler, voicing his opinion about Sony's recent Gamer's Day, which surprisingly turned out to be very, very positive.
Because I'm unable to post a direct link to the flash-embedded video, I've pasted a link to the general video page instead. The video is currently the very top one, and it's called 'Adam's Assessment.'
See for yourselves:
Game looks cool, if it plays as good as it looks then sony boys are in for a bit of a treat
Not bad????? Are you drunk?
When you talk about this game the only words we are ALLOWED to use are AWESOME, SPECTACULAR, AMAZING, GREAT, PERFECT, MIND BLOWING, BRILLIANT...
Definately on my 'to buy at all costs list'
It's only old video stuff. Seems "x-play" had nothing in hands.
Time for something new or the release finally!
agree old footage,
still worries me that all we have seen in terms of gameplay, is arena fighting and platform fighting linked with quicktime events.
we will hopefully see some variation at E3
Look closer...there are parts that aren't from the arena area.
thats why i put arena fighting AND platform fighting.
by platform i mean the small areas that seem to be at the top of rock formations.
Just looks like a button basher for me, they need to show more than great graphics
This was a weird Preview. but anyway This game looks Like Hell of alot fun im gonna get this for sure on my ps3
This game does look ready and hot! This game and Little big Planet are the only 2 games that have my attention on PS3!
Yea I saw that, but tell me this, Does that seem like the sort of coverage that he would normally give say a Nintendo event??
That to me seemed like someone tracked him down during his lunch break and did an impromptu interview with him sitting around his desk.
Fact is the games shown were damn good and he would have had to be pretty bold to say otherwise.
Just saying look at how that interview seemed like it was tacked onto their xplay episode. Don't get me wrong I love watching G4tv, its the only mainstream gaming channel, but at the same time they have a responsibility to not only entertain but to be "unbiased".
I am not saying they should have streamers and banners out being advocates for the PS3, just that they should give everyone the same treatment across the board.
And why I am coming down on them is because they will be the ones broadcasting E3 so they will have a major role in altering the public perception of the PS3.
I see your point.
I guess we'll find out whether his opinion is genuine or not once E3 hits, and to what extent X-Play/G4 spins and showcases each company...unless of course, Sony does indeed fizzle like many believe they did last year...
But I have a gut feeling that this time, well, Things Will Be Different.
(...hey, where'd I head that before???) ;)
1st off, calling G4 a v/game tv station is wrong. It used to be, now it is just a poor man's spike tv with a v/game show or two inserted in the lineup. Tech TV and even G4/Tech TV was far superior to this wasteland of Star Trek TNG reruns and WB cast off shows. I gave G4 more credence when it had Judgement Day, X-Play (before the stupid skits and blatant Nintendo fanboyism) and some of the other game related shows.
Now, on to the main topic. All I have to do is refer you to two of Sessler's interviews. He begrudgingly interviews Phil Harrison, and later, practically fellates Miyamoto. In everything he does, he hates Sony. It was really a disgusting display. I think shows like that should have gamers, not fanboys, hosting.
bombardment of absolutely non tech-related shows such as Star Trek, Cheaters(???), Arrested Development, Jamie Kennedy, Cops (now in 2.0!!!), and still declare themselves tech-driven.
Nightmares like this often occur when overly-authoritative, arrogant investors/owners/CEO's cluelessly try to run the show without seeking or acknowledging feedback from valid experts who are truly in the know.
And then, one day, the sh*t hits the fan, subordinate heads unjustifiably roll, everything gets overhauled in panic...
and the cycle starts anew.
I can't wait for this game to come out.
This would be a nice engine for a RPG.
i am totally dying to get my hands on this game. If it delivers like it should a nice system seller in deed
Can't wait for this one to come out! And i love watchin x-play can't wait to watch G4tv's E3 07 Live!
but i wanted more button sequence gameplay video.. rope jumpin anyone?... just mind blowing
More times I see this game
More times I want it
Hope that extra time to took to release it, will make it a system seller, I'm going to get it regardless, but I want others to want it just as bad as I do. PS3 needs to be successful, so that I can get more great games to play.
