Now Playing - Dark
Shaun and Erick get all vampire-ish in the stealth RPG - Dark.

i'm playing this game right now and my verdict is that this game had a strong strong feeling of Vampire the Masqurade Blood lines even at the start of the game you can see this the club name the two twin sisters which reminded me heavy on Therese and Jeanette but i had an issue with the voice acting a bit its not quite dark as in VTM and the dialogue feels not natural like the characters don't really have a soul to connect to the combat system is not that good i haven't tested all the Abilities yet but from what ive seen the Teleport ability is nice when he bites some one it it looks like hes not really biting and it looks kinda broken and childish i did not like that it had a nice potential of being a good role playing game with vampires like VTM but some one just messed up my opinion thanks for reading =)
Just from the beginning of this game it seems to be borrowing heavily from Bloodlines..
Not that its a bad thing.
Anyone every stop to think that, given that developers like to hide their story until people play it, that they might have been instructed to talk over the dialogue as much as possible?
Am I the only one around here watching these videos for enjoyment? What happened to not being an a**hole? If you don't find this good or entertaining, it's a waste of your time. A further waste of you're time to comment. Just GTFO if your going to be negative. Whatever most of you are trying to do, it's not constructive.
If you're saying "welcome to the internet buddy..." then that's fine. You can lump yourself in if you want to.
turned the vid off after 10 mins, I'll go and find a playthrough that doesnt talk all over the dialogue or mess about trying to take a piss...in short, even after 10 mins of this video I still have no idea what this game is about.
Going to get this, yeah it looks kinda bad (i.e Voice acting and Animations) but I'll give it a go, maybe the version they were playing was from early in development
Seriously, Shaun, STFU.
I, like most people here, watch this video to get an idea if we should purchase this title. Your commenting and attempts to be funny are really poor. As a vampire game fan, who has been waiting for so long to see another vampire game, am very disappointed by the way you performed in this video. I'm not saying that you should have done this video with military discipline and completely mute, but if you are to make jokes, make them tasteful jokes at proper times. If you are to talk, don't talk over the god damn dialogue. Seriously.
Also, the video player is bad. So bad... Post the damn thing on vimeo or youtube or both and put links to them there.
Doug Cockle does the voice over for the vampire protagonist in this game since everyone is wondering. He is the same fellow that does Geralt in the Wtcher games. Google it, I did.
Shaun & Erick are really painful to watch playing this game. the game isnt amazing but they sure love to over talk while playing, & its all terrible jokes. Shaun is best when he doesnt do game play videos. i aint trying to hate on him cause i do enjoy other things that he does for Gamespot. i just know that he enjoys making fun of things constantly & when your trying to get a perspective on a new game or a game in general, its really hard to block out all of the tons of talking, jokes, & his need to grief in a game.
I'm pretty sure it is Geralt. Is that voice actor the same guy who played Raiden in the Mortal Kombat movie from the 90's?
God those 2 are painful to watch playing. let's look ate the pretty colours and he statue twice!. Let's scout so long that the guard goes into an area we can't kill him. UGH!!! show me some cool stuff!!! That being said I know it's the first run through but I turned it off after that guard walked off.
IT's the actor for Geralt from The Witcher!!!!!!!!!!!! LoL drove me crazy, them saying it was Agent 47
I'm pretty sure the voice actor was the same one who did agent 47 in Hitman, anyways this game looks pretty awesome! Love the graphics! Although they kinda have bad grammar, "Like Tom and me"? I think they mean "Like Tom and I" Lol
Seen enough. Reminds me a little bit of Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines which I loved. So... yeah, going to play this one.
I wish I had caught this on Twitch. They kept trying to play it like an action game, and I kept seeing paths to take but I couldn't say anything just watching it on here. I was like "NO, YOU IDIOT, GO THE OTHER WAY!!" xD

yeah.. the voice acting seems bad. Animation is kinda wonky too. I'm having a hard time watching this mostly because of the voice acting. The bouncer's voice work was some of the worst I've heard in a loooong time.
The animation looks a little bit rough around the edges but i can't say much about it. I've seen games like this which turned out to be surprisingly good (ie:Alpha Protocol and Binary Domain.)
The two people playing make me hate this game. Or is it the other way round?
Sorry to be so negative.
This game looks like those games in the pinball galleries of the 80's Boy FEEDBACULLA is going to have a ball with this one. Oh by the way wheeeeeeeeere is progress guys? No thank you I don't want one
This game looks good and bad at the sametime. It looks like they tried to combine Borderlands, dishonored and vampire the masquerade. Which are 3 great games. I think I'll enjoy this.
The link from the GameSpot front page is broken for this, just fyi, it simply redirects back to the main page.
@Dawn_oF_Doom Why don't you just watch someone else playing it on Youtube then?
You would have to be an extremely dedicated fan of vampires to play this, it looks pretty bad.
@iAnej Which is always a good thing.
@Panda-Pat Agree but I think they upload their Now Playing on youtube.
@edpeterson That's a mistake a LOT of people make. The best thing is when people try to explain why it is wrong and they don't have a clue! :P
@oOhedzOo Alpha Protocol, good?
@Simplythebest12 I think the same people made it..
@wolf503 I know right. I'm tempted and mortified at the same time.... much like my old days of playing OWBN... but we won't talk about that.
@pathosfire thanks for getting them to fix it.
@pathosfire Thanks for the heads up. This is fixed. :D
