Hellboy first glimpse (xbox360, Ps3, psp)


From Krome Studios (developers)

"Based on the acclaimed comic book series from Dark Horse Comics, the game lets players unleash Hellboy’s supernatural might as they smash, crush and demolish their way through more than 6 unique locations with fully destructible environments to thwart an evil supernatural plot."

I certainly hope it's more than 6 locations, of course this Hellboy game shouldn't be confused with the earlier Hellboy game for PC and Playstation (a flop which spent 4 years in production).

more blurb:

"Boasting detailed and expansive environments with advanced lighting and texturing techniques, the levels in Hellboy are also highly destructible, adding another level of strategy to the game’s bare knuckled action while bringing the character’s untamed power to life. When confronted with a large group of enemies, players can choose to smash a wall to create smaller, more manageable groups and even pick up the rubble to use as a weapon for added impact. Hellboy also lets players experience the game cooperatively with two players taking on the roles of characters from the Hellboy universe such as Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman."

Let's hope gameplay improves on the press release

Not very promising, is it? Doesn't look too good either. Definitely not shabby, just not too go0d...

Can't understand why perfectly fine comix have to be translated to dull 3d. Really can't.

(gnome scratches beard, then beard. Ah, a pebble. nice)

The Elderly said...

You (once again) are so right, why not try 2d, keep it in style, now that would be worthwhile....... even if it bombed because of the gameplay you could replay it for its graphic quality.

Back from the beach i see......

gnome said...

No. No beaches yet... :(

Oh, and I've learned that 2d is so very much more expensive. Bugger.

The Elderly said...

(tries to figure out why 2d is more expensive...) gee programming sprites on the amiga was easy......ish.... laborious though i'll give you that....

Cartoon characters would surely just be sprites with more.....space ....

(elderly realises he dosen't really have a clue how you would code a 2d comic game)

hey it was worth a shot..

:)

gnome said...

Definitely. right between the eyes :)

Hold on, I'll be back with an answer soon...

(checks egyptian hieroglyphics decipher... checks smiley rules.....)

beats me, according to this it appears you've opened a smiley portal..... which is probably not a good thing!

gnome said...

Ok... let's close it then

The Elderly said...

and well you might sew your lips together..... (elderly points towards the smiley portal......., thousands of devilish symbols are flooding through, devouring all in front of them...
