Yup, its Mondays episode that aired earlier in Canada.

monoprice.com for all your cable needs. :)
5-10 dollar hdmi cables IIRC. I ordered mine from there a few months ago, good stuff.

When does Heroes air on regular TV. I saw Ep 18 on my usenet server last night and watched it. Then I saw on TV guide that it airs today at 8 PM. Is there like a special screening on Sunday these guys cap from?

No, this was the Canadian broadcast. They get it a day earlier than we do.

I am really interested in the game.

Heroes is a Universal production, technically it is weird to see it show off a PS3 anything considering S1 of Heroes will only be available on HD-DVD. You have to wonder how much Sony had to pay for that advertising :).

Just a heads up but tonight's episode is also supposed to have some new Spidey 3 clips.

Unfortunately it looks like is more a combat *arena* game than anything else. Enviroments looks amazing but looks like they are placed more for cosmetic purposes and not necessary to finish anything in the single player other than to connect the level to another arena. Lol!

Will be awesome however if they show something that proof that the game is more closer indeed to a thirdperson combat/adventure game like GOW or ShadowOC and that is not a 100% linear game.

This game is definately not an arena game. And will probably be no more linear than God of war is. Don't get confused by the e3 demo, it was only a small part of the actual level.

Anyways, some other screens started popping up...

I love this quote

"So basically you have the army game which has up to 2180 AI’s (I checked the other day cos somebody on Beyond3D asked and I didn’t actually know, its can probably go a little higher but thats the current number embedded in the code) running on SPUs with the normal main game logic mainly running on PPU. For fighting the SPU code selects the 20-30 closest army guys and hands them over to the normal game so you get the full fight engine and AI for them. For ranged weapons (like the Bazooka) its all handled internally to the armies, and they try and run or dive and also get blown up quite spectacularly(its very satisfying ;-) ). The army AI is hierarchical, each guy has his own brain and avoids and tracks important things but there is also a battalion level intelligence that guides each unit around the field following a specialised virtual machine with commands and orders. Its quite hard to control an army and not make it look silly, so we use a few tricks to make it look visually interesting as well.

From a design point of view, the difficulty is giving the player a challenge without making it completely unfair. Obviously 2000 people + catapults vs 1 women is a little unfair in the real world but we have a number of techniques to keep it fun. From long range weaponry to her spinny attacks and some cool special moves she can wipe them out if you know how."

And "Draw Distance is 10Km to be slightly more precise tho in that level there is nothing beyond about 5Kms"

Ha, I just watched the Heroes episode with my buddies and saw the clip. I saw this thread yesterday but for some reason I didn't realize the "courtesy of Heroes" part. Anywho, yeah I was watchin it and I immediately recognized that it was Heavenly Sword. Luckily my roommate has a PS3 so I'll definitely be checking this game out when it lands.

Okay so I just saw the footage like a minute ago and it was pretty cool. It was just as short as the vid and a nice shot of the PS3 in the background with the girl holding the controller.

They might be playing nice now... not only was the PS3 on the show but the show also featured exclusive Spider-Man 3 preview and NBC is hosting a longer HD version...

I think the story goes something like the king took over her land, and she took these sacred swords (that give her super human power) to kill the king. But the swords are so powerful that they started draining her life energy the moment she got them. So she has a time to die almost. And there are things that may put more time on her clock, and things that may take more time off.

I'm not sure if the entire game is in real time like say 24 the show, because theres cut scenes and stuff but thats what I remember from the story.
