the amount of people on screen at once is hilarious...reminds me of the matrix reloaded when agent smith just kept coming

That looks fantastic!
If this don't sell the 360 in Japan nothing will.
Not even free 360 Sushi with every console.

Wow, the visuals are full of the sort of lighting and other post-processing effects

It's amazing how some developers can put so many details on screen with no visible slowdown. While others can't place an ant on a leaf without bringing a console to a crawl.

The impressive looking pictures (picture 6,7,8,9,15,16,17) are CGI, they have to be because the gameplay looks alot worse compare to them.
Commented on 2006-02-24 15:36:39
Not necessarily CG. Most of them may be real-time high poly cutscenes ala mgs.
Commented on 2006-02-24 15:40:55
8 and 9 are realtime.

newer graphics chips like that in the 360 and the PS3 allow them to do a special thing to get this number of characters on the screen at once. you'll notice that although they can all move independantly, they're based on just a few models.

when i played that ancient demo that was floating around at the launch parties (and crashed super easily) the cutscenes that ran with the in-game engine, weren't too far away from some of the things that look like CGI. i would guess they probably could've done some of those scenes with the engine had they wanted to with slightly better models and longer load-times :)
Commented on 2006-02-24 16:06:25
looks like plausble real time to me, cut scenes often look better than ingame due to fixed camera angles and refined animation. Look like its shaping up to be awsome, i think purchase i on the cards. Any news when a euro release blim?

Wow... This game is going to be loads of fun. Even IF it turned out to be like a Dynasty Warriors type game, the detail and little touches they've put into this will make it great. The only thing that could make it better (for me) would be an online co-op mode. (Don't know if anything has been announced about that yet)
Commented on 2006-02-24 16:43:52
I just watched the video and have to say that the ingame graphics are very unimpressive, some cut scenes are pretty good, but gameplay looks very average, doesnt look next-gen. I wish the cgi graphics would be the graphics of this-gen :-(
Commented on 2006-02-24 16:47:05
WOW amazing... did inphyy die? Also at like 26 seconds left in the video CHECK OUT METAL ON HER ARMOR INCREDIBLE!!!

I gotta have this game....

I'm hoping to god that you get new abilities as you go on. Like you get new more improved abilities that not happening is the ONLY possible thing that can limit this game.

Inphy dies??? And check the amazing look on the witches face at like 22 seconds left.

The animations of the warriors are bad. They are all moving their legs in the same time and on the same way and they walk like they are on a running band.
Commented on 2006-02-24 16:53:53
finally got to see about 1 second of that water effect :D
Commented on 2006-02-24 16:56:28
Let all write a petition to MS to bring a Demo of N3 for the US/Europe region on March 1st. They're forgetting their most loyal customers dammit. It's BS, I don't want to create a fake hotmail account to get a demo.
Commented on 2006-02-24 17:00:08
Who else saw the stunning smoke effect during actual gameplay?
Commented on 2006-02-24 17:11:48
I'm looking forward to this game SO much... it's almost disgusting...

I think the day that they announce a US release date... should be a holiday! hahahahaha

You know the same thing happens in Heavenly Sword. I am guessing that is not next gen either. Oh well none of the next gen consoles are next gen I guess.

Commented on 2006-02-24 18:02:05
LOL...How the HELL did any of you two see that!? I wasn't able to see any of what was said in regards to the animation. You my friend must have a bionic eye!

Yeah...um... One day someone going to have to explain to me what "next-gen" means. It starting to sound like a political buzz-word.

Anyhoo... The graphics most certainly are impressive and nothing that could be done with the game rigs prior to the 360. The fact is games will never look exactly like CGI because post-processing and pre-scripted animations always beat out realtime graphics... It's just a technical fact. As Realtime gets better, so does CGI.

Even if the graphics were EXACTLY like the CGI from the camera's high position you'd miss out on the details most of the time.

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker It's clear that they are properly developing this title compared 2 to, you'd think that would pay off. Soon we will find out. Very very curious about Scalebound too and more QB is always good. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @KORNdog: Whatever team is behind Dave Jones who is the original creator of Crackdown. That's the team behind it, so, high hopes unless they have literally learned nothing since the 1st game. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Something this cloudgine will bring i assume. Is it the original devs making it? (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog A fair few games have come and gone since crackdown that improved on its traversal, sandbox nature, abilitiesand depth. So they will hopefully bring their A game to give us something new. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @KORNdog: The only fun came from some new grenades, weapons, 4P co-op, the wing suit and the fact you could pilot helicopters. The rest was utter turd. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @KORNdog: Crackdown 2 had less than a year dev time I think. It was rushed, I dunno why. The city was exactly the same with a bit of debris and zombies. (4 Hours ago)
