I've been excited since the first trailer. Would like to see more of X in the next direct.

Same here. It looked great at the beginning of the year, and even better at E3. I can't wait to see a new trailer and get a full reveal!

Absolutely. Honestly, this game and Bayonetta 2 are next gen games I am most looking forward to out of all of the next gen games.

It honestly looks the most next gen to me as well.

Im more worried over the "muddy" looking textures in the game as well as the obvious lack of AA and MSAA. I'm sure the game will be fine but it could've looked better had Nintendo not cheaped out and went with weak hardware.

Chrischi19882026d ago

And that is why the game will suck... gameplay-wise... People, stop this spec talk already, because specs of a console are bad, doesnt matter if it is Wii U or PS4. Dont talk about optimizing here, because maybe you should first find out, what AMD Mantle is, because that will change your optimizing argument ;)

What you're seeing is Alpha footage. It's not even reached beta yet. Imagine the improvements they have made in everything once this game comes out!

Obvious troll is obvious.

stragomccloud2026d ago

So... you won't play a game if it has "muddy" textures. I'm sorry that something like that will keep you from enjoying a game.

Hicken2026d ago

At NO point did he say he wouldn't play it, or that it would suck.

For myself, it's definitely a game I'd buy, but I DO understand what AbortMission is saying: had Nintendo been more in line with the PS4 and XB1 in terms of specs, this game would look- even at this early venture- leagues better.

Gameplay isn't a worry: it's Monolith Soft, after all(though I wasn't completely enthused with all the changes they made for Xenosaga Ep. II, but there were a lot of behind-the-scenes influences at play there). So why not turn your concern toward more deserving areas, such as the graphics?

Hickens is on point. All of you other fanboys are just... Lol. So butthurt

Easily one of my most anticipated games of 2014. If we get both this and Final Fantasy XV next year, I don't think my little JRPG loving heart will be able to take it!

Misaka_x_Touma2026d ago

FFXV is not coming next year I tell you that

Abriael2026d ago

Because we saw a trailer and we decided that the game is good.

I'm moderately excited for it, but Nintendo's refusal to show or say anything really tangible about it tells me that that excitement is probably gonna find purchase in a long, long time.

Abriael2026d ago (Edited 2026d ago )

Lol at the disagrees. When was the last time we heard or saw anything about it?

It was just before E3, four months ago.

In the meanwhile Nintendo keeps talking Mario, Sonic, Kirby and the usual re-boiled stuff.

Concertoine2026d ago (Edited 2026d ago )

The game isnt due until 2014! You cant expect them to say much about the game potentially a year before it releases. Thats standard for any developer, including nintendo. Even the usual franchises coming 2014 arent getting much news.
Sonic is out in a few weeks and mario in a little over a month, of course theyre hyping them up.

chadboban2026d ago

Well Mario is coming out next month and Sonic is this month so of course they have to talk it up.

Kirby was a surprise reveal and it's coming 2014 and that's all they said which barely counts as talking it up.

But you do have a point, Nintendo has been delaying a few games lately, I mean Pikmin 3 was supposed to be a freaking launch title.

Not talking about a game doesn't mean it's not coming out on time though, Nintendo is such a hard company to read and they don't normally do media blowouts until much closer to a game's release. 2014 is all Nintendo has said thus far, so I think we should stick with that for now until they actually announce a delay.

nerdkiller2026d ago

what i wanna know is how you earned all those bubbles with all those disagrees

_QQ_2026d ago (Edited 2026d ago )

Well considering the studio's track record from before and after they became Monolith your statement "Because we saw a trailer and we decided that the game is good? " is like saying 1 trailer from a rockstar north or Hideo kojima game isn't enough to assume the game will be good. Also its 2 trailers. but i agree i want to learn more about it.

Abriael2026d ago

Yeah, I don't assume that a rockstar north or kojima game will be good after seeing a trailer (the first was more of a small teaser) either.

_QQ_2026d ago

I guess some just have more faith in studio's that usually put out top notch work.

Kos-Mos2026d ago

Because Tetsuya Takahashi is more intellectual than any of the western game developers ever have and will be.
That`s the reason.
Don`t agree?

Play Xenogears and read the analysis after. It should sum up the fact I stated above.

_QQ_2026d ago (Edited 2026d ago )

I wouldn't say ANY, true most western developers don't go too deep with their stories,usually trying to imitate hollywood story telling. But not all,Ken Leviene for example,Bioshock infinite could be a Novel.

Kos-Mos2025d ago

Could be a really good one, but not Takahashi good :)

jcnba282026d ago

The game looks amazing so far even though they haven't shown us much. Hopefully Nintendo will give an update in the next Direct.
