    Cringing at the terrible voice acting/

      Not all of it is bad, but I *did* cringe every time I heard “SOMMERAI”.

      • Zestevez

        Oh man, the SOMMERAI was the only reason I cringed.

        • $18114340

          I think it’s not so much that the pronunciation was off, but that he said it so frequently.

          • Sevyne

            To be fair, he was actually saying it correctly. It’s just not how we’re used to hearing it and it was a bit forced. I still did cringe regardless though.

            • Budgiecat

              like “Kara-te” as apposed to “Kerotty”

  • Heavenly_King

    the game looks quite ugly.

    • Furious Francis

      What are you smoking? This game looks fantastic.

      • Heavenly_King

        when you are investigating the stage it looks cool, but when you fight it looks ugly as hell. Fighting in first person really?

        • Budgiecat

          Yeah shoulda been revamped for PS3/PS4 in third person with 3D enemies like in SMT III: Nocturne imo

  • Niyari

    sawmahrye. ooookay there buddy.
