Heavenly Sword, Hell Blade, Bleeding Edge, its coo l how the names tie rogether
Yeah this game looks really fun too. Ninja Theory has proven multiple times that they can surprise us with great games.
They are good devs. I'm jealous of this game being exclusive.
This one doesn't look like "a great game".
@Thundercat77 Care to elaborate?
@TK-66 Because the design looks like a clear Overwatch rip? I mean I get that it's "melee" but they could've tried something different than copy pasting the art style.
@OzzY-waZZy "Because the design looks like a clear Overwatch rip?" I'm a prophet! Check further down in the comments and you'll see I predicted this sort of argument. Overwatch was not the first game to have this art style but why is it a negative for a game to look visually similar to Overwatch? The characters definitely don't look like the copies that we'd see in Battleborn or Paladins, and the gameplay is definitely different seeing as it's far more melee focused so I don't understand how the argument applies.
the combat looks fun, I'm just wondering if it will have enough content and variety to stay fun
The game looks interesting to me and since it will be on gamepass I’ll definitely try it out.
Bleeding Edge isnt exactly my type of game. I prefer a more standard arena style MP over the hero class based MP with super moves and such. Couldnt get into Overwatch personally, but it's on GamePass so I'll give it a solid try and give it a chance.
I like the melee aspect of the game. Looks like chaotic fun.
Should be fun.
Platinum wont do anarchy reigns 2 so Im hype for this. Especially since its melee focused. My only complaint tho is the character designs. They just look kinda dumb. Wish they were a bit more grounded.
It's a difficult thing to nail down in games like this. I think they're trying to avoid what happened with Battleborn/Overwatch and LoL/Dota 2 where there's a suspicious amount of overlap in hero designs. If they had a stereotypical dwarf with a turret for example they'd be bombarded with criticism about how unoriginal the designs are and dismissed as an Overwatch clone.
Same here, game looks like it should be fun but character designs could of looked so much better, just hope they give it more time to improve character designs, more characters and great content if they want this title to be successful than the few characters on that video. Also it would be great if they could give us Kung fu chaos 2. xD
Very disappointed. I was expecting something better from from them.
This is their 20 person team. There are close to 100 other people working on other titles. The people that made hellblade are working on another project. Expect a bigger title from that team. With that said, you can try it out for a dollar
I mean it's basically trying it out for pennies because if you play it for 30 mins and instantly know it's not for you theres another 100+ games for you to spend some time with for the next month so there's no excuses to not try it out at the very least.
What were you expecting?
I believe there're 4 teams at ninja theory and the team that made this was around 15 people and the team that made hellblade was around 20. If they can produce games like this with such a small group of people those people must be extremely talented
One of few games in which you can play as a feminist.
Looks horrible to me but to each their own as they say . These types of games are bleh . PS or Xbox this game is for the bin.
After Hellblade, this was definitely not the right game to develop. Left tons of fans disappointed/let down with what could have been vs a generic multiplayer game that'll be dead before it even takes off.
So you played it?
When they put effort for some years and develop a game no developer would like to see this comment even before its released.
People here see this game & then complain saying that Microsoft ruined another studio , Ninja Theory has been working on this game for years , if Ninja Theory has been working on a game that you people think will suck for years BEFORE the Microsoft purchased Ninja Theory. How is it Microsoft's fault that Ninja Theory is working on a game that's been in production YEARS BEFORE MICROSOFT PURCHASED NINJA THEORY? I know the problem here , THERE IS NO SPEAKING LOGIC WITH FANBOYS !!!
"ambitious" It's just a worse looking Anarchy Reigns.
Not at all interested. When NT make a decent narrative focused singleplayer I'll pay attention again.
Start complaining after it has been released in some form , demo / beta or just rent the game if you feel it will suck & buy it IF you like what you've played , could be months or over a year till it's playable to the public.
I'm gonna play as the 300lb SJW power-dyke
More shallow Gamepass guff to play for a few hours then never touch again.
