Wtf is this shit?

Edited by gouldgonewild

When he loaded the save file, it was an hour and a half on the clock. Did he say this was half way through? I hope this game is longer than 3 hours long.

You guys made my morning.

Thought Venetica was decent, can definitively see the similarity though this looks more serious and more polished.

Wow cool accent, man. I wouldn't have guessed German.

Maybe it's a save made by the developer for promotional purposes and not actually representative of the game? If this game's really that short, it better be that damn good.

Oh man, that guy's pronunciation, jeez

Posted by gouldgonewild

@sleeping143: I'm sure that's what it is. I am having a lot of trouble listening to this guy talk about this game though. His information is incredibly boring.

Getting an unsettling Hunted: The Demon's Forge vibe from this one

This looks terrible.

Posted by altairre

Yup, this looks like something Deck13 would do. It looks bad.

EX's just aren't as fun as normal quicklooks.

That is a super interesting accent. Game; not so much.

Long distance farter?

"Yoo haef too.. shoot ae' some switches to level some britches.. "

I mean no hard feelings, I found this quicklook thoroughly entertaining by his accent and the weird way it made things sound goofy.

I heard the exact same thing. Must be a ranged skill.

Guys from the dev seem nice but kinda wish this wasn't an ex because the intro video and a few other parts were hilarious in a bad way but Ryan obviously didn't want to be rude.

Game looks like hot garbage though. Hope the devs have a backup plan to keep people employed when this bombs hard. :(

Terrible voice acting.... So painfully generic... They did say this is not the final version and I hope it becomes a better game

QLex really need 2 co cost to make things interesting

Sold?

@BeachThunder: We need more modern combat RPGS and more medieval shooters.

Also the voice of the main character sounds like Ryan Reynolds. Just sayin'.

Kinda surprised it took a whole 19 comments before this dead horse came around...

Posted by ShadowSkill11

Well, this QuickLook EX convinced me this game is terrible. It's is purely the most generic of generic action-rpgs.

Posted by BeachThunder

Seriously, this game looks like the hottest garbage =\

Posted by Elwoodan

Wampires.

But seriously this game looks... odd. I like the idea but the execution looks a little loose.

Posted by drkscyde

Hard to believe they thought this game was ready to show

Kinda surprised it took that long for someone to attack him for showing some dissent...

And you know he's right anyways.

Man, it's Hunted The Demon's Forge without the good characterization and occasional moments of wit.

I feel like this is exactly the kind of 'double A' or mid-tier game that used to be everywhere back in the PS2 era. Apparently with the triple A pushing them out of the retail space, they've pushed them into the indie space. I suppose that's a good thing, less money and less risk for smaller markets. Hunted came out at 60, this is coming at 15. Probably did Hunted no favors.

Don't really have a problem with his accent at all.

Perhaps it's due to me not being a native english speaker and having heard way worse :P

I guess he's Swedish or Norwegian?

Oh the company's German!

quick look ex: generic title

Edited by VargasPrime

This looks like the most disappointing Legacy of Kain sequel ever.

Still early, by his own admission, so maybe it will tighten up a bit before launch. Everything looks very lightweight and floaty.

Nice armor on the female, though. Plenty of exposed flesh to... distract opponents, I guess?

As a German myself, I'm thoroughly confuzzled by this guy's accent. It sounds more like he completely overdid trying to hide his actual accent. Like a bad impression of a Texan accent as imagined by a German dude.

Posted by LarcenousLaugh

I admire Ryan's ability to look crap in the face and smile.

Yeah that's the impression I got, like he's overcompensating and trying to pronounce words the way an American would.

Oh dear this seems bad.

Posted by gosukiller

It might be a BIT too early to show to a video game website. Now when I hear Blood Knights, I'll just think of:

- Crappy animation

- Crappy voice acting

- Insanely generic dialogue

- Uninspired combat

I hope it turns out to be a decent product, but I'm not seeing it yet.

I didn't know Boris Becker had gone into game development....

EDIT: Also the sound of enemies being hit sounds like a bad car horn..

Found that the gameplay style is definitely something I enjoy same as Ryan with the 3rd person D&D action/rpg games from the PS2. Though one would think that between all the games they've done & Venetica recently (tried to get into but just very flat in the delivery of the story/dialogue that just got dull), that they'd get some better writers for what I've seen of this game & whatever they do in the future. 3rd person action/rpg with vampire skills are something I'd enjoy but the writing/voice acting just is rather emotionless in how it's presented. Somehow the other European developed games I've played lately (Sacred 2 Fallen Angel & Two Worlds II) seemed to do a slightly better job at this, not as awesome as the Witcher 2.

While I like these QL EX on the smaller games like this, the guy definitely sounds like some of the people in the game industry I know who aren't producers/PR people, just rather wordy without that producer/PR edge of quickly explaining away some common game elements to focus on what's new. This studio definitely needs someone like that to better sell the games they do if they are hitting more gaming journalist sites. Thankfully Ryan was there to fill in some of the blanks on this QL.

edit-after watching this makes me really just want a new Legacy of Kain game instead of this.

Like most Germans I've met, excellent command of English. I am continuously impressed how the majority of you can handle dual languages with ease.

Game looks interesting as well.

@RKTJMP: Because they can't poke holes in the game and laugh.
