Wow, they weren't kidding when They said they were taking the series in a new direction. And Yeah, it's a wee bit unsettling but I'm gonna wait and see on this one. It definitely dark but it's supposed to be and until we really see the entire game's content it's hard to tell if it's too much yet.
That being said, The game looks amazing. Assuming that's all in engine footage (or most of it). It looks spectacular. The swing of her pony tail is the only thing that takes me out of it. And hair is always difficult to get to look good in a game engine. I'm gonna have to keep on eye on this now, maybe ask some of my instructors what kind of techniques they developers used. Can't notice anything obvious like Normal mapping.
Also Penny Arcade is awesome... that is all.
