  1. I'm a Chinese who is very familiar with Xuan-Yuan Sword series. I'd like to say the battle of The Gate of Firmament is terrible. DOMO want to create a new battle model because the old model was used for over ten years and got more suit for 2D game rather than 3D. I hope they can make a another new battle which has more fun to play.
    If you do not know Chinese culture very much, it may a little hard to understand the story completely. Music is a unique signature of this game, they use unique Chinese instruments to play this music, so I hope you guys enjoy this music

  2. Thank you for the video! The narration, editing, and research are on point, and I found your perspective on my favorite video game series interesting.

  3. Random Question: since it's dealing with some history of China, is there anything mentioned about Lu Bu or anyone else? XD

    (lol nope I bet…)
