    Early versions of the game looked unimpressive but I must say this is starting to shape up really nicely. Impressive graphics and use of colors, nice setting (Scandinavian/Viking lore!), nice subject, nice protagonist. Perhaps even the revised combat system will be fun.

    This is actually the only game I'm hyped about.

    It would be devastating for me if it turned out to be shit.

    Also, more games about celts, please.

    Unshackled from the publishers inanities, I'm curious to see where Ninja Theory can go with this. I wish them the best.

    Pretty sure giving unbridled freedom to shitcucks can only result in shit. This looks like shit - all these videos with fucking academic experts is the epitome of hipster garbage.

    What's with the dreadlocks? Is it to appeal to the 'urban' market? Somebody will still get offended by it and accuse it of 'cultural appropriation'!

    The face shapes look quite different too.
    Anyway, what matters to me is that the old one looked like a crazy dangerous bitch who can literally go to hell and kick demon butts, and the new one is anything but that. And on top of that, the old one is also way more attractive.
    The devs tried hard to be artsy instead of making sense within the context of their own story. As a result, they failed at both.

    This is one of the most beautiful painted models I've seen. Eyes are fabulous.

    Wow, that's earlier and cheaper than I thought. Keeping an eye on this!

    "Hey John?"

    "Yes Ed?"

    "You think we made these moves telegraphed enough? Made sure the player has enough time to dodge, make a cup of tea and then get in a couple of hits?"

    "Hmmm, not sure. Best throw in a 'slo-mo' special move just in case."

    The models and animation sure look purty though. Just hope this is a very early fight, like tutorial early.

    Yeah, I was super disappointed when I saw the change like two years ago. The old one looked messed up and attractive. The new one looks like an average girl who has hardly been in battle. The visuals was one of the only things this game had going for it, which is why this change is such a big letdown.
