So if anyone is interested in seeing a decent amount of gameplay in english for S3 I ran across this today. It's something Deep Silver streamed and then saved the broadcast with plans to do it again next week with footage of the Malakhim. From watching it they appear to have done it before but I could only find this recorded one.
It basically confirms for me everything I was thinking about the game...looks fun in local co-op, but lacks the depth we expect with the series.
At one point their armour skill levels up and the sun warrior guy gets a shoulder pad attached to the character model, but there's no actual equipment...
I'll probably still buy it at some point...but not sure when. If I do get the urge to play I'm sure I'm gonna want the malakhim though which means I'd need to pre-order, but I don't really think this game is worth paying full price for...sigh
