Dark Messiah Warrior Video

Postby Angelspit » Jun 23 2006, 2:10

There's a new video for Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, showing footage of the battles of a might-oriented character.

<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/TWKRkhpFqhE"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/TWKRkhpFqhE" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

I'll embed a low-quality version of the movie here (as an experiment -- let me know if you find it annoying). A better version can be found on the <a href="http://www.mightandmagic.com/uk/news.php">Might and Magic portal</a>.

Looks great, yeah. Just hope there is some substance below the flashyness.

Well, people at E3 said it gave them the same impression as oblivion did => looks good for DMoMM.

For H5, despite its flaws, to do so well in terms of sales means that DMoMM certainly has the potential to be a real winner for Ubisoft and Arkane. Looks like Ubi made a good choice on this one, and with the new popularity in the series, we may yet see a MMX...

For me, it's not embedded. It does only show "(Flash)" as a link to youtube. But perhaps it's just due to the adblock extension?

Edit: Um... no. the source code says [a](Flash)[/a]

Yeah, who removed my embedded video? I thought it was cool to watch a video straight from CH. :baby:

Angelspit, sorry for frivolously removing it, but I don't fancy the idea of downloading a HUGE Flash movie every time I visit the CH main page. There are people for whom bandwidth is a problem, and I'm one of them. I think one extra click isn't a problem for those who do want to watch it.

Was that a bullet time I saw in there?Oh no,not again! :disagree:

The dificulty setting in that video seems to be set on easy,but its nice to see some hint of thinking from the AI(when he cuts the bridge).

It is "just" slow motion, not bullet time...

I was under the impression that the embedded player was very small and the download didn't start until you clicked the Play button. A lot of blogs do that these days, but I don't mind linking externally in the future.

Mmm gory... I like it :)

Still, I will most probably go for the more elegant butcher route.. so I can't wait for the Assassin's video :D

Man I hope this does well so a MMX might then get produced, but I saw nothing there that interests me. Not surprising though as I do not play FPS. Just getting too old to run around like that.

Video doesn't look too promising. The only FPS that made sword fight great was Jedi Knight Outcast/Academy.

uh... yeah, it looks cool -- and it looks like your opponents are about as smart and challenging as a jar of bacon grease. Looks like Ubi's got the bad AI thing down pat...

Shnaiz video that, looks very promising. But I rather pick down my enemies with a bow and arrows ;)
