    Just seen this and I'm blown away. I'm a sucker for chinese style martial arts games and films, so this is right up my alley. The atmoshpere feels great as well.

    It was so odd seeing proper cue's and attack tells in a chinese game. Usually it's all particle effects and nonsense.

    I've got tired of these Souls-like games a long time ago.

    Make something different, you filthy epigones.

    what the fuck is souls-like about this other than being a 3rd person action game?

    Looks OK. Playing as a monkey doesn't really appeal to me, however. Still.. will be interesting to see if it gets localized. Most Chinese games still look like crude garbage, like they're still just trying to figure out how to make a real video game. This looks like a properly made game with potential for fun.

    A 3rd person action game that requires more than spamming LMB?

    ah I see, you're the kind of mouthbreather who would like more developers to ape AssCreed or Batman instead.

    This looks really fucking good :bounce:

    The animations, visual, sound fx and even the music and art styles are pretty nice. But considering this probably being bankrolled by some millionaire and made by 1000 code monkeys locked up in a warehouse, it would be fucking shameful if even the technical side was crap.
    But surprisingly the gameplay seems solid. The spells seem to be verstatile enough for both combat and exploration use, and like any good brawler the combat moves seem to have multiple purposes (like when he spinned the staff around to deflect arrows).

    Asians really are the only ones nowadays that actually do decent AAA shit

    Although J_C why did you said Dark Souls in the title? This more similar to a spectacle figther or any traditional 3rd person brawler than a Dark Souls copycat.

    There is a good quantity of visual fx there, but they pretty well made and measured

    Except it actually looks like that the gameplay isn't garbage

    Best looking non-FromSoft soulslike I've ever seen, including Nioh.

    Probably the fist Chink game imma buy.

    ^My first thought was Nioh with better looking/more interesting environments.
    Actually, that time limited mode wherein the character gains the powerful elemental attack and his health is filled up is remarkably like Nioh.

    Once in my life I'd like to see a press conference with Trump showing everyone his executive order like he always does with official looking text saying: "I hereby ban Black Myth for being too casual. God save America."
