    Nice fast movement, which is a nice incentive to get the warrior bersaerk.

    Nice knock back.

    Want to see more.

    The graphics and animations look decent enough for me to be able to stomach playing this title. I don't play pong anymore for a reason, hence why I never played DF very long after first month, it is just horrid.

    Did they misspell berserk?  Or are they trying to make a new word?

     

    Over all rating from me.

     

    NOT IMPRESSED.

    So much crap, so little quality.

    It's actually the more correct translation than berserk.

    Not to shabby but shouldnt a stomp animation be o I dont know a stomp?  Nice footage though all in all.

    This is actually a product releasing within the next month?  Uhm..... ok.  So that begs the question, why does it look stiff and crappy?
  • BeansnBreadBeansnBread PshPosts: 5,498Member Uncommon

    Umm... stomp. wtf.

     

    That was a pretty hilarious interpretation of a stomp. It's functionality worked like an AoE knockback and the visual looked like some kind of purple forcefield.

    I actually love how darkfall looks..  It's beautiful how the shadows look from the moon, while your hiding behind a tree as a goblin is trying to sniff you out..

    I just think the animations need a lot of work. The gameworld and the particle effects looked pretty good even if the animation/particle effects looked way out of whack for "stomp." Honestly, they should just rename it "brutal force" or something.

    The world environment looks pretty impressive given it is so open. The animations could be better but when actually in combat they should be fluid enough for it to be of little to no real issue.

    I thought the graphics/visuals looked just fine, guess we have different standards in what is needed to enjoy a game.

    I didn't see those details, so fair enough.  I'll keep checking back, thanks for not attacking me, I realize using words like crappy and awful probably irritated some fans, so my bad.  It was just my opinion from a short video.  The thing I like least is still the sub fee, but I'd pay for a good game...

    >.< wish they had shown more then 2 moves also that stomp move seems like some fun trollin :]

    Well one thing i can say, looks wise its an improvement on Darkfall thats for sure..

    Never really played darfall for the looks tho..

     

     

    As for the so called stop skill where the guy puts his arms out well yeah that quite clearly needs to be renamed to "arms out fly away"

    Funny to see that people want to judge the game by it's graphics after watching a 1 minute long video ( quality: 360p )

    Doesn't look too great graphically but the game is still interesting.

    True - I mean it is full loot and hardcore.  And PvP actually has a consequence - something one from GW2 would not understand -- consequences.......

    So agree with me that it looks crappy, then bring up features that have nothing to do with the awful visuals.  This has NOTHING to do with GW2.  I want to be excited about a sandbox, but if they look like this, I'll keep waiting.  Sorry if that offends you.

    Fair enough and if you get the chance to try it out you will see the graphics actually look quite nice for how huge and massive the world is...

    animations look pretty bad. Its be embarrassed to run around holding a big hammer like that.

    I have to agree, I've watched the trailer many times and I don't think the models look stiff. 

    The graphics also look good as far as I'm concerned. In particular, I thought the falling animation was hilarious.

    bleh for a game thats suppose to be new and not just an expansion. it really doesnt show a damn thing. no mobs someone standing still while he knocks them back etc. whats the point of this video? its stupid wheres the new pve content show us something new and improved not some ediot running and doing knockbacks on someone standing still. it looks fail.. sorry to say because i love the concept but was missing so much to make it feel alive. mobs better pvp ai was horrible hehe just countless things that needed tweaked and updated but it looks like they spent more time redoing the company logos then they spent on the game.. :-( gameplay=win not the gfx. thousands of people still play games like eq and uo and the reason y is the gameplay not gfx.

    Can't really tell much from a low-res 1 minute video, it looks like every other fantasy mmorpg but it does looks a bit dated and stff.

    Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

    Looks great to me.

    A month away and this is the video they put out?  I could make something better than that on my lunchbreak.  That's damn embarrassing for a "professional" gaming company.  Seriously, do they have absolutely no pride in their work what-so-ever?
