“It’s on a par with 360 and PS3 and we were even able to make some key graphical improvements. We focused on areas that would have the most impact on the game.” Producer, Matt Prior


  1. while the list of things the touchpad enables you to do is certainly impressive, I feel that it will possibly take some of the skill out of the game. perhaps i’m wrong, but part of the fun of gaming is having a challenge, trying for that perfect shot or high score. This is noticeably highlighted by dark souls and the flock of followers it has won with it’s unforgiving gameplay.

    I hope the game is great (who wants bad games flooding the market?), but i have doubts about the touchscreen, both in what’s described in this particular game, and ‘dual screening’ in general dividing your attention. well, time will tell.
