From Dust
« on: August 19, 2010, 04:36:38 am »
Gameplay footage of a new Ubisoft game called "From Dust." (Formerly Project Dust) It looks like a newer version of Black & White. Some of you may remember this trailer, shown at E3 this year -

I know, right? This seems like one of those games that could totally distract me for a few weeks.

Hay the first game was pretty good in my book. Even if it did not live up to the hype. (And the hype was on a class that makes spore hype seems pretty mild i would say.)

Well, i've only played black and white 1, but back then, I really enjoyed it for what it was. I think it was just the scale of the zones and the feeling of freedom it gave you. Plus throwing rocks was too amusing.

The first game was good until you got to that level where the take your creature away and the difficult curve goes all brick wall.

The second game... oooohhh... don't get me started on that steaming load.

 :(

I enjoyed it, only to try to find ways to subvert the rules and do things I shouldn't.  Namely, teach myself the art of long distance fireball throwing.

Seriously, I was like a howitzer, lobbing fireballs through mountain passes from my base to bomb remote enemy cities.

It sucks so hard they're recently bringing more console-exclusive games and leave PC games out in the cold due to pirates.

The level in which they lob fireballs at your village and you can't do anything about it?

i was hoping it would be on consoles. my computer can't properly handle oblivion on great settings, it would crap itself if i put this game on it.

it seems like it's not so much a game as it is a toy. i imagine that it's kind of like what we wanted to see in Spore when you come down to a planet; you change the topography of the land and see how it affects the population on it. I don't care that it's on console (though i'd prefer it on PC, if my PC could handle that), i'm excited to maybe get what was my most anticipated not-included feature of Spore (albeit a speculated feature).

That re confusion just happened to me. So in order

Damn its console

Yay its pc

Whys it still in console


Anyway, as Hydro says this reminds me a lot of the original Populous. This looks like what Black n White should have been and what i hoped they would be. Black and white was kinda Medieval Sim City, with the novelty creature (which gets taken away too much ;( )

It's probably your video card, then.

You've only got the bare minimum, which oftentimes just doesn't work.

entertaining, and beautifully.  I like just experimenting and seeing the world change shape over time.

also, console is considered better than pc. apparently the controls are actualy much smoother for console.
