I know I’ve been spamming this blog with game videos a lot lately, and I know that this particular videos is already a bit old, but hot-damn it’s good. I really like the juxtaposition between the young, almost angelic girl, and the warped, crow shaman. There’s a few things that blow my mind; namely the way the crow is suddenly sitting on the playground, like it’s preying on children. And then the way the girl smashes it apart with her light attack, dispersing the shaman in a torrent of crows. Loves it!
Below is the recently released Unreal Engine demo film called The Samaritan. It shows a dark, gritty, Shadowrun-esque future where police brutality looks to be relatively common place. Check it out and try not to salivate on yourself.
I have said it before, and I’ll say it again; Deus Ex: Human Revolution looks absolutely fantastic and it may very well trump Deus Ex. The potential immersion is phenomenal and I really can’t wait to play it. I’ve been clinging to the Eidos twitter feed like a crack addict waiting for more footage and yesterday they released this. :)
