Images of Wheelman

Midway has sent out the 720p versions of the Wheelman images we published last week, plus adding one or two new ones. The game looked pretty promising judging from the videos, and Vin Diesel's performances in games has been pretty good so far.

A friend of mine is on the QA/testing team for this game - He hasn't said many good things about it!
QA/testing teams usually are under standard non-disclosure. If he wants to keep his job he shouldn't be talking about it with you or anybody else.

He didn't disclose details - just said to avoid it ;)

Exotic yet boring looking locations? Check.

Shitty bullet trails for that XTRA AWESOMENESS!!!! RAGR!! Check.

Bad explosion effects? Check.

Invincible cars that handle bad but that's okay because they can crash through everything. Check.


At least now we can say this gen caught up with last gen now.
We are finally seeing games as bad as the crap spewed out last gen WITH all the checklist ticked off.

Oh one more.

GTA4 coming out soon so 98% of gamers won't give a damn about any other game for at least a month so why are they even releasing this. Check.

Ugly bloom, ugly glowing textures, average or below average geometric detail and effects...

The videos looked to have really bad gameplay.

Let's not forget the bizzaro world physics where your car acts like it has the mass of an oil tanker and every other car acts like a cardboard box made of rubber.

how can a carboard box me made out of rubber? lol
get your point though...

Lol, the devs are brave releasing screens like this. If I was them I'd be keeping quiet about the game then sneaking it out onto the shelves. At least then they'd get a few curious buyers.

I can see this one filling bargain bins around the country.

This game looks awfull. From the bland, empty and lifeless streets, to the horrible car physics and so-so graphics.

Nope, not all that excited for this one.

it reminds me a bit of 50 cent bulletproof, but ofcourse with vin diesel, anyone agree?

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I checked again, their last broadcast is about 32 minutes and is about the Keep. The one after is from oct 20. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: It's going to be the X1 version for me. Hopefully we get to zoom in on characters too. Skyrim and Fallout 3 have that, you can zoom in/out and keep the cam there. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts DICE helped them a lot with the Frostbite 3 engine and they were able to push the visuals beyond BF4 in some aspects, like the water effects. And it really shows. Too much excited to wait till Nov 18. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The camera automatically zooms out when entering combat and zooms in after, but you can change the FOV with the mouse wheel. The visuals look amazing on PC, much more than on PS4 and XBO. (7 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: To access the archived livestream videos, click on BioWare and then on Past Transmissions. Today they showed a new region and a new story quest (but very early, so almost no spoilers). (7 Hours ago)
  • Sath
    Sath Main Theme from Lords of the Fallen [url] sounds great to me, kind of getting that Witcher style vibe. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I watched the X1 stream again, parts of it, i really hope so much that on console we can zoom on the character and lock it too, it totally kills immersion when camera is so far away. (10 Hours ago)
