Rise and shine, here are the ten first minutes of HL2 Xbox ! The long awaited port finally came in place before the 360's release, but even after a year or more, it still smell like a rush.
As you'll see in the video, the game looks fine, even if the textures have suffered a lot. There's also a bit of aliasing, but it's only cosmetic, small glitches. Because the real pain of Half-Life 2 Xbox, not mentioning the game itself, concerns its whole steamy engine, hardly giving a framerate that throw-out its lungs permanently. Well, maybe not "permanently", but long enough to be worried. It's really strange, because there's also a lot of HDR in the game, and I wonder why Vavle would put such an effect in the game without securing a good framerate. I mean, that's retarded. Anyway, if the slowings don't kill you enthusiasm, be sure the loadings will. I have cut them from the video, but you must know that there are FOUR loadings during the 10 first minutes of the game. This is... impressive.
Now, I'm done with the bad points, let's be sweet on Half-Life 2. So, except what I mentioned earlier, the game is just identical to its original version. The physics are exactly the same, and so are the maps. Finally, my point is: if you can pass these technological problems, you'll enjoy this game. You sure will. But, you must know that you will suffer. Your eyes will suffer. And so will your nerves. Ready to rumble ?
ps: following some requests, I forgot to tell you that the game supports 16/9.
Going to guess one is the new Wolfenstein and the other maybe The Evil Within 2, hope not. Please let it be Bethesda Game Studios' new IP. (12 minutes ago)
Bethesda's E3 showcase invite seems to tease two announcements: [url] (12 minutes ago)
Wow, i just realized south park its going for a 3rd E3, that's rough (22 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Im talking about games that sp is clearly not the main focus i guess. Evolving, mp based especially coop is where Ubisoft is going all in (24 minutes ago)
Hope they can show us something from BGE2 but i really doubt it. Hopefully their ''one more thing'' game this year will be more interesting than last year though, sjeesh. (25 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Its that they need to have more sp games to balance their lineup. The last games that was sp only was syndicate in 2015. I hope for a new ubiart game at e3 at least (30 minutes ago)
@AndreasZ94: Ghost Recon has a campaign. It's not an online/service shooter. I don't see what's wrong with them making MP games... I guess you don't like them? (36 minutes ago)
