    This might be one of the best looking games ever.

    i played it a week or two ago... sadly, it's just okay. the whole paint brush gimmick didn't do too much for me.

    That's too bad, I've heard some pretty positive opinions about it but the complaints seems to be centered about using the brush, like you said. Did it seem like a early-ish version at all?

    March 06 GCD trailer

    I might try to track it down, how dd you get it? I still have high hopes for the finished game.

    Games like this are why I used to want to make games, and the lack of them is why I'm just enjoying them less and less. That's one of the best looking anythings ever.

    cool gimmick though.
    Sadly I played the demo and wasn't impressed.
    I like the voices though.

    In breaking news the GDC trailer is amazing. If any of you can elaborate on what you didn't like about the demo that would be cool. It won't really effect my perception of the quality of the finished product, I'll make up my own mind. At the same time, contribute. ;)

    I'll try to track down the Demo disc tommorow.

    it was in playstation magazine about a month ago. the one with PS3 on the cover in big white letters, and the mag was predominately black (in color, not in spirit :) )

    it also had demos for black and some samurai game, genji i think.

    on a plus note, the game truly is beautiful to look at. there aren't any real voices, though (a pet peave of mine)

    SERIOUSLY......THE "ART STYLE" MAKES IT VERY EASY TO COVER UP THE FACT THAT IT HAS ZERO TEXTURES, CRAPPY RESOLUTION, AND A VERY BASIC COLOR PALLETTE. IT MAY LOOK "COOL", BECAUSE IT'S DIFFERENT FROM YOUR TYPICAL ADVENTURE GAME......BUT IT'S HARDLY "ONE THE BEST LOOKING GAMES EVER".


    AND YES, I PLAYED THE DEMO 'Z'......I LASTED ALL OF ABOUT 5 MINUTES BEFORE I REALIZED I WAS GETTING DROWSY. :o

    You seem to have missed the point.

    If you can make a visual that is pleasing, the end result is what matters, not the technicalities, graphics ****.

    The demo is cool, It seems like the actual thing will be very good if they keep the elements from the demo. I don't see the boring comments, I mean demoes aren't going to show you the best stuff anyway. :confused:

    I agree, demos usually aren't good. Kameo had an awful demo but the actual game is an orgasm. Although there are great demos, such as Call of Duty... but that was a much later mission.

    Looks interesting.

    Maybe not the best looking but it looks gorgeous. Stop being fanboys! It's the first time I've seen a game looking like this. It's simply beautiful. It doesn't need mega polygonsz!!!!

    If this was on the 360, you'd guys be lapping it up. PS2 games can still be great.

    NO I WOULDN'T. 'GUN' LOOKS LIKE AN EARLY 'PS2' TITLE ON THE '360', AND I ONLY RENTED IT AND PLAYED FOR ABOUT AN HOUR BEFORE I GOT SICK OF IT. DON'T CALL ME A "FANBOY", JACK.......I'VE STILL GOT MY ORIGINAL 'PS2' FROM THE DAY-1 LAUNCH; IT'S COLLECTING DUST, AND IT'S PRETTY MUCH BEEN A WASTE OF $300. THIS GAME LOOKS LIKE A 'PS1' TITLE, WITH CELL-SHADING. :down:o

    If think this looks like a PS1 game you have Microsofties in your eyes. I love my 360 as much as the next guy but Okami looks simply amazing. And dare I say it's art style is better then all 360 games right now.

    NO, I HAVE 20/20 VISION, AND I KNOW CRAP WHEN I SEE IT. COMPARED TO 'ICO', THIS GAME LOOKS LIKE A STEAMING PILE OF ELEPHANT S**T. :down
