After more than a year since the initial announcement, Konami has finally released some screenshots and a cinematic trailer for their upcoming Hellboy videogame.
The overall response from fandom seems to be “meh,” but I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. The fighting system sounds interesting. A lot of complaints seem to be about the graphics, but to be honest, while I do have aesthetic appreciation for nice graphics, I’ll take great gameplay over pretty pictures any day. Kind of like how I prefer a decent amount of articulation on my action figures, rather than those plastic statues McFarlane Toys puts out these days.
I also watched the Halo 3 trailer–nice graphics, not much idea what’s going on, but I’m sure it’ll be an awesome game. An Xbox 360 will probably be the only thing on my Christmas wishlist this year.
