@dryker:

Well, 505 Games isn't developing it either as they're just a publisher.

Inti Creates was meant to develop Ritual as well but were kicked off a year ago. They were replaced by a studio you've never heard of called DICO.

Honestly, those initial pieces of 2D concept art looked amazing, and I don't understand how "more budget" equals "now it's 2.5D." That actually seems more like a cost-cutting measure if anything.

It's too bad they couldn't just let Inti Creates do their thing and make the game with Azure Striker-esque graphics, or bring in WayForward. They definitely would've known what to do with it.

But yeah, as it stands, Ritual being good is no guarantee.

Also, here's hoping this turns into another Hard Corps. I'd love to see Vinny get all the endings.

Sooo... he's not restarting on Normal, is he?

It hasn't been very interesting so far, honestly. It's just a cheat run.

Wait, was that Jan pointing at himself implying he's waiting for Kingdom Hearts III? Could it be true? Is there a Kingdom Hearts fan in the GB staff?

@fredz85: The only reason I know about Naglfar is because of the black metal band of the same name. But yes, on the second trip to Hel when they started talking about the ship, I thought "Fuck, is that going to be Naglfar?!"

But no... it's just a wooden ship. Missed opportunity right there.

@galerian: For the blinding attack, yes, but there are also Valkyries that have arena-filling shockwave attacks. They simply can't be avoided and must be interrupted.

@glok1132: Yeah, he knows surprisingly little about a game he considers one of the best of this console generation. If he's just a guy who doesn't care about story but still loved the game, then fine, whatever. But he also doesn't remember the final boss fight?

Also, for what it's worth...

- The third Dragon Tear can be found at the dragon that crashed after you fought Baldur on it. Its corpse is still sitting in Midgard. Just go there and pick up the Dragon Tear off the ground.

- The Valkyries' unavoidable flash/explosion/blinding attacks can also be interrupted with Shock Arrows and axe throws, not just Light Arrows like Ben mentioned.

Can anyone confirm the presence/lack of spoilers?

Just finished it and it's spoiler-free.

@nicotn: I'm sure there are, but those outlets don't have Dan and Vinny working for them. I'd like to hear them talk about the game start to finish at some point.

I was kinda hoping this would be the spoilercast, but I guess it's too early for that. Hopefully there'll still be one in the future.

Crazy how fast I went from having zero interest in this game to going out of my way to do an in-store pickup.

See you on the other side, guys.

So why does this game even exist? Dave said on the Team GFB Radio podcast that this company approached them for a pitch, and they accepted. But... why?

It seems this Modus Games hasn't published anything else. Is it a Copernicus situation where some delusional rich guy thought they had an amazing idea that was gonna make them even richer? Did someone just lose all their money on this?
