Absolutely incredible even an hour of gameplay isn't enough.

Space magic!? How do you end on that tease lol.

I didn't think this could beat Zelda for GOTY but my god I think it just might.

Lol this has 0% chance of beating zelda for game of the yr, stop. I'm sure it will be a good game, and certainly looks to be very ambitious. Graphics don't impress me, and the combat looks very janky and uninspired imo. They didn't say whether its 30 or 60 fps, which pretty much confirms its only 30. Lots of stuff to sink your teeth into, but just looks extremely boring to me. Maybe just not my type of game, I don't know

just_looken343d ago

exactly it looked like the same stiff combat from fallout 3 in 2008.

just you walking shooting walking no companions or army heck anything not even a space dog.

what is the purpose or story its a meh to me

ThePacemaker343d ago

The gameplay shown is definitely 30 fps on Xbox. Maybe high end PC can do 60 fps.

Yeah this is next level gaming if they can deliver then wow because they really have something special they just need to deliver.

raWfodog342d ago

Next level, no. But it’s okay if it’s current gen lol. I’m looking forward to seeing what the final delivery will be.

repsahj342d ago

Lol about next level gaming. XD

EvertonFC343d ago

AI was still crap, when looking around at the landscapes slowly it was still janky with little jumps, Phil promised to clarify 30/60fps, other than that the game looks good exploration wise.
This is 100% no GOTY imo.

purple101343d ago

Il clarify that for you right now. It's 20fps.

sparky77343d ago

AI always looks average in trailers everyone attacked the Spiderman 2 trailer for the same thing, it's like that for trailer purposes. If reviewers say the same then you have a point.

The only competition for GOTY will be Zelda and from what we have seen Starfield 100% could be GOTY.

PhillyDonJawn342d ago

If this live up to expectations I see no way in hell how Zelda would get GOTY over something like this that pushes the envelope

zarbor342d ago (Edited 342d ago )

Well this has the "potential" to be GOTY but those of us who have played all of Bethesda games, they will need to make sure they do a heck of a lot better job with polishing and rid of bugs come launch. This game is way bigger than their other games so I just don't see that happening. Our only hope is that they get all of the game breaking ones unlike Cyberpunk.

Nintendo does a wonderful job of releasing games that are polished. I have not played the new Zelda yet but every review seems to state its super well done and current GOTY. My current GOTY based on what I have "played so far" is Diablo IV. That game is well polished as well and another game that Starfield will have to overcome IMO.

I like what I have seen from Starfield. Yes, it has a chance to be the GOTY based on what has been shown. I'm not confident it will but I'm more confident it will be a top title this year. Its the only game so far on XBOX that I want to play. So glad they it will be on GamePass since I'm done buying MS consoles.

StormSnooper342d ago

I definitely wouldn't stay it is "incredible". I hope it proves to be a good game, but I wouldn't be surprised if its only a moderately good game (I can't imagine MS pulling another Redfall again, I really can't)

This game looks SS4 Epic! I'm going to buy the collectors edition when the pre-orders go live

just_looken343d ago

you need a /s at the end of that comment

jwillj2k4343d ago (Edited 343d ago )

I’d much rather this than “I was gonna buy the collectors edition but instead I’ll get it for a dollar on gamepass!”

KicksnSnares343d ago

I want to apologize to everyone I offended with my comment 😂. I’m super hyped tho

343d ago
RaidenBlack343d ago

Nothing to apologize. Its PERFECTLY FINE to get hyped up for a video game.
That's what video games are for: excitement.
Every game/franchise/genre has its fans ... don't let other people's comments sway you away from your hype.

GhostScholar342d ago

It looks incredible and everyone knows it.

ZeekQuattro342d ago

No need to apologize. I'm even more hyped for the game after the Direct than I was before. I'm going to get lost with all the ship & outpost options. I just know it. Definitely one of those games where I look over at the clock and have to a double take when I see how much time has passed.

I have no intentions on attempting to get the collectors edition but I'd be lying if said I didn't want that watch. I don't even wear watches these days anymore but I still kinda want it. I would find a reason to wear it for sure.

-Foxtrot343d ago (Edited 343d ago )

I’m super impressed

I mean I’m also sceptical they can pull it off with so much going on but impressed

Just makes waiting for ES6 worth it with the ideas presented in this adapted to the next ES game

RaidenBlack343d ago

Gotta admit, I really liked what I saw ... was not expecting it to be this vast and still look this good.
Hope, less bugs at launch this time.

Sonic1881343d ago

Were you impressed with the enemy AI? I wasn't

raWfodog342d ago (Edited 342d ago )

I’m also looking forward to this game but I’m surprised that you were not up in arms or offended at the CE having a digital download instead of a physical copy. So seemed so mad when Spiderman 2 announced it.

-Foxtrot342d ago

Oh no no

I’m p*****

P_Bomb343d ago

Game of show imo. This one will hit.

KingKionic 343d ago

Game of the generation. Bethesda is not playing any games. I salute them.

RPG of the generation confirmed. Xbox are going to be eating VERY well.
