Indeed. I've always wanted this style of a multiplayer game. I look forward to hands on coverage on the battle mechanics after game sites get hands on tomorrow. It looks like it has stances, and parry mechanics.

For Honor's Story Campaign Cinematic reminds me of ESO's PVP Cinematic.

I agree, I thought the video was labeled wrong. It really felt like a pvp trailer.

The campaign walkthrough looks interesting, but the combat system seems a bit off to me. I guess I'm too used to smashing a couple buttons and watching enemies die. XD

The fighting style in For Honor reminds me of an old game I used to play "Die by the Sword". Except in Die by the Sword your weapon or shield literally free floats and follows the exact path of your mouse. So instead of changing stance to left, right or up like in for honor, you literally just attack from left or right or whatever angle you want. The downside to it is that it looks stupid as hell. XD But in For Honor it looks like their fighting system might have been a bit inspired by DbtS but updated in such a way that it looks much more plausible. The big thing that DbtS's combat did with that free floating sword, was allow you to easily target specific limbs. I'd chop enemies legs off left and right and damn if felt good to lob off an enemy's leg, pick it up and beat them to death with it while they hobbled around trying to kill me. XD

Theres not many good vids of that old game, but I found a speed run of it in decent quality:

I'm really pumped for this game... It looks to me you can hack and slash through all the regulars and only the more serious enemies you have to melee. The guy that played it live was worse than the one that did this demo. The attack tells are generous enough to move your guard into the right spot... or maybe thats just because I'm use to GW2 boss tells. XD

I was really sold on the MP, but now this campaign looks great, being able to use the environment and what not. It's co-op too which adds to the fun.

      I just discovered Hyouka and I'm hooked. The animation is stunningly beautiful... not Evergarden tier, but extremely good compared with most. The Chemistry between Hotaro and Chitanda is outstanding. Chitanda is super adorable and Hotaro's lack of enthusiasm for anything just makes their interactions great. Plus the "mysteries" are intriguing as they go about solving them.

      I've been a bit inactive lately. Lots of things going on with my personal life and work. There's a new big update for the forum software we use and it's finally been released which is also another reason why I didn't update the themes yet. Hopefully if I have the time this weekend I'll get that all updated.

      Anthem isn't perfect. It probably should have been delayed another 6-8 months, but its a hell of a lot of fun. I just find it funny how Destiny can rack up big review scores with the similar issues and significantly less content. The popular thing to do right now is crap on EA, and its justified... but it'll be a shame if this game gets the plugged pulled on it early. There is a lot of potential here to fill the gap until the next gen consoles come. Arekkz has the most realistic take on the game, the rest of the YT community is just spitting out talking points which is kinda sad too see since they're suppose to be the alternate to big game sites.

      Last Spring was an anime season of epicness. This season is of charm and adorableness. Meiji Tokyo Renka, My Roommate is a Cat, The Quintessential Quintuplets, and ENDRO have all captured my heart and they're not even my favorites this season. I'll def have my work cut out for me doing a full review at the end.

      I've been sick as hell for the last 5 days now. Damn sinus infection has wrecked me. At least I got some time in on God of War. Damn that game is amazing.
