I'm sure it will be a decent enough game, just not one I'd be interested in playing unless the final product diverts a lot from what was shown in the trailer.Joyless "prestige" violence with women existing in extremely ancillary male-propping roles, if at all. Fool me once, I guess.
I posted some negativity in the other thread, so I just want to say I’m not intending to come down anybody being cautiously optimistic here, especially since we don’t know much about the game. The tone of the trailer just didn’t hit with me was all.Serves me right for trying to keep an open mind about a trailer I wasn't thrilled with I guess.
Which is why I'm paying attention to this at all after XV - the XIV people know what the fuck they're doing (as you well know, MB lol).Core dev management appears to be mostly poached from XIV, which makes sense on a couple levels, as they're the only team at S-E currently capable of delivering quality product mostly on schedule.
I'm onboard until I'm given a reason not to be. And intentionally vague, rough-edged teaser trailers several years out from actual release is definitely not a reason to be in my book.I'm tentatively onboard because I don't really trust a trailer like this to be at all representative of the game as a whole.
That's what I can't get over. This trailer is so rough, and obviously rushed, they might as well have done a brief cinematic thing to get people excited, and instead they did this and it's ... meh.I'm onboard until I'm given a reason not to be.

Did they even show enough to demonstrate it's anything other than a concept at this point yet? It's not that it looked rough, it's just that it didn't convincingly look like a combat engine. It could be and maybe it is, but it could also be a few seconds of attack animations spread out to show the feeling they're going for.That combat engine looked more refined to me than a game "several years out" would look. But I really don't see a level of roughness in that trailer that others have expressed.
