    It was cinematic gameplay :smug:

    But yes, I expected some substantial, not just walking and 2 swings of a weapon.

    Trully amazing what they did with UE4. Capturing character real time using the new mocap tech. I think it has never been done before in real time before, right?
    If it'll be action packed as DMC and with compelling story, it will be an awesome ride.

    If it's anything like their previous games it'll be shit.

    Are you serious?

    Of course, mocap in real time was done before.

    This was first time I saw it in live action. I don't know anything about it and I thought it was cool.

    It is cool but it's also useless.

    Their achievement is that they did it with non-expensive equipment. The problem is that it has nothing to do with gameplay.

    Yeah, the game will have nice animations. But I follow this game for the last 2 years and they avoid showing actual gameplay because whatever they actually shown was bad.

    Finally some combat gameplay. TBH it doesn't look bad and I like the fact that they are doing their own thing instead of blatantly copying Dark Souls or some other games.

    Sorry anduin, sometimes I have brain farts like above. Mocap is not useless and it helps a lot with immersion and stuff.

    If you have MOCAP utilities and software and know how to use them it's a game's studio dream come true. Btw, combat feels it will be based of players reactions similar to Dark souls. It could turn good.

    No rolling -> no iFrames
    No parries
    And she seems to perform different combos based on the positioning.

    Both are action games but I don't see a lot of Dark Souls in the clip above. I don't know.

    The game is clearly not finished so this part might change. I think the game has potential and I'm glad it's coming to PC.

    Why does the combat remind me of this, of all things?



    Well, then again, it also reminds me of this masterpiece:


    I definitely hope it's more of the latter than the former, but genuinely behind-the-back for hack n' slash is a bit awkward.

    Combat looks like cutting down trees.

    In Severance Blade of Darkness a combo performed at the right time was almost always an instakill.

    Of course for a womyn warrior death by a thousand cuts would be most realistic.

    No healthbars, player health feedback is blood spatters on the screen, vignetting and de-saturation? Where have I seen that before... :roll:

    Combat will be total shit, like with all other Ninja Theory games. World and character design though looks intriguing.

    This looks kind of cool. What I'm surprised by is the amount of hate in here for Enslaved. I by no means loved it, but I thought it was OK. I completed it and had some fun with it.

    What did you guys hate so much about it?
