I guess I am the only one saying "meh" at this?

 

I don't rate it even near DX:IW's intro (and yes, that includes the music)... and we all know how that game turned out to be.

 

What you don't like the epic music and the emotive, brilliant lines of dialogue ? :)

Nope. Just that this sort of pr hype isn't even worth my comenting on. It's just spam that has no relevance to how good (or bad) the game will end up being.

Notice how I can belittle your beliefs without calling you names. It's a useful skill to have particularly where you aren't allowed to call people names. It's a mistake to get too drawn in/worked up. I mean it's not life or death, it's just two guys posting their thoughts on a message board. If it were personal or face to face all the usual restraints would be in place, and we would never have reached this place in the first place. Try to remember that.

No, you are not. I just can't get over the horrible haircut.

I love when they do game remakes/updates/sequels and the developer clearly has no clue why people liked the game in the first place.

 

Well he did do Rainbow Six Vegas. :)

 

Too early, and too thin to say that about DX3, yet.

Exactly. Its a non-in game trailer... its entire purpose is to generate buzz. Which its doing looking at this thread if you liked it or not your discussing it. So as far as they are concerned mission accomplished.

DNF's marketing succeeded greatly then.

Why 'This is the New ****' was a great trailer.

Loving everything I'm seeing. No idea what the hell is going on, but it just looks good.

 

Nice.

Good article, worth reading.

 

Here I was expecting them to say the original was meaningless and they spit on it.

Would probably be a more honest reply.

Then they probably wouldn't go the extra mile of, say, getting Sheldon Pacotti to sign off on the story etc.

I see no reason to start hating on this without more actual gameplay footage to watch...

 

In fact, I'm really interesting in getting hold of it to see what the police station is like myself.. >_<

They are trying to butter up the "old" fans, got Spector onside too. But still useless to say you'll be doing X when the alternative is just stupid to do.

 

 

Also, never too early to hate on a game. Best course is to hate anything up until you get decent feedback to the contrary :thumbsup:

Level scaling ? **** yes!

 

Interesting that he says "how you level up", so your opponents match your chosen specialty or something along those lines ?

It's not an open world game, so chances are people won't actually notice it.

 

 

Probably true. Though I really dislike level-scaling in an crpg, if it's a pretty linear crpg than scaling is less of an issue.

 

That being said, level-scaling is never a good sign.

It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here.

 

I'm a big proponent of heavy thematics and imagery and they love pushing it in their trailers. I can't help but be excited for it.
