I'm personally saddened that it was mostly the TGS06 CG though with only snippets of game play. I could've probably cut together a better trailer. The game's setting definitely deserves better.

Maybe i'll feel different when i play it, maybe they'll fix some of the animations before release...i don't know. But that Music vid makes me soo hyped for the game..then i see the "game" under the presentation and it goes away a bit. The demo will probably tell all...overall, i am excited to get my hands it though.


This is Factor 5's ump-teenth flight sim, so I take it by now they know what they're doing. I welcome the physcial aspect of the game, makes it more than just a 'point your reticule and shoot' game. The gameplay should be deep.

Am I trolling when I laugh at the ridiculous "In a world" guy. I did the same thing for the UT3 trailer. Why are people dead set on being so pretentious?

I suspect you are trying take offense where none is to be found.

No I'm not taking offense it's just that your past three post were negative.

Thats all.

Not really. I've seen very few dragons with wings attached all along the length of their body. I could be wrong, however, but it certainly doesn't seem common. Dragon wings are certainly usually "bat-like" but they also come to a very small point and are not spread along the entirety of the creature's body.

I actually don't like the bat design, but I'll get over it.

Right, but the game incorporates both the bat design, which is still fairly common, and the more familiar dragon design (in the main character's dragon).

Either way - dragons are awesome and deserve more games about them.

Maybe the fact that you're an annoying 360 fanboy that only comments negatively in every ****ing PS3 thread I've read has to do something with their bias against you. GTFO of PS3 threads if your feelings are hurt, afterall we already know what you're going to say before you say it.

Alright. Are you talking about this walking part right? Yeah it looks cool to me. Kinda makes me wish you could dismount off of your dragon and anytime and just walk around.

I have high hopes for this game, it really looks like nothing I've ever seen before, both with the dragon physicality and the amazing scale.

i expect them to not show cg since the game itself already looks great. but the cg looks waayyy better so when it cuts to ingame footage it looks meh (compared to the cg). just leave out the cg, that's what i meant.

It's factor 5's "alpha," but considering they only have 2/3 months left to get it to a final, I suspect they're alpha is far more advanced than most games' alpha builds.

It doesn't really matter if its Alpha footage, they aren't going to get it to look like that CG footage in the trailer. They shouldn't even feature the CG footage. SE has their CG because of large scale sequences, this game obviously doesn't have that issue they'er able to pull off large scale scenes with ease with this engine.
