Developer Metropolis works on a mysterious first-person shooter called They for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. Personally, I can't wait for other minimalist videogame names. I'm eagerly awaiting the likes of "I", "You", "He", you know the drill. Back on this title, it seems to have a good story according to the team. Plus, it will be possible to pimp your weapons or, if you prefer, tune them up. Hit the jump for some glorious 1080p stills.

The whole twist to this game was the fact the robot thingys are been controlled by aliens which they say you find out about half way through the game

I still rem reading that and think "you fucking tits" i mean really talk about screwing your own twist, bad enough when retards on the net do it, let alone the dev ...

It still can be fun, no?

Could be quite interesting. Looking good.

Graphics are pretty good, especially if they're 1080p. But if anyone's watched the trailer, he'd know that the quality of the presentation and story premise is quite poor, and nonexistent. I wish more games nowadays would put a big, big emphasis on quality storytelling and direction/presentation. Another game that is disappointing me in that regard, based on the trailers, is the Alone in the Dark.

The contrast in these pictures makes it looks a bit cool, but hearing what you guys say about the story and the the pure technical aspect of the picturs jsut make me go "ugh..."

i remember seeing a video for this game on gamertv, it's pretty cool

robots then after they are taken over by aliens the whole gameplay changes as they act differently and stuff

Are you daft? Alone in the Dark has a HUGE focus on story, and its not like they have shown a whole lot concerning the story. Most of the hype is with the tech, but the previous games were known to be more about story etc, as opposed to game play.

Anyway this game looks great, especially for 1080p. I downed it to 720 so I didn't have to scroll across the pictures and it looks great, and super smooth, which is nice. And the weapon customization looks pretty cool.

If it's 1080p, how can that be done on the 360?

Do they downscale it?

Huh? The 360 can do 1080p, what are you talking about?
Anyway, looks cool IMO.
Commented on 2008-04-22 00:26:17
Well, I thought that it wasn't capable of true 1080p.

That was the impression i got anyway.

Some of the best use of HDR i've seen in a computer game, its up there with Halo 3 in terms of lighting.

I feel the pics are retouched too much, the contrast is a little too high. and...lots of colorful monsters and weapons in a dull stage? if the color scheme is as plain as GOW, it will be better, or maybe all colorful. The title is really cool, hope it will be great :P

btw, this reminds me of Hellgate London.

Err you dont reveal a major plot twist, let alone show it off in screens.
Commented on 2008-04-22 10:27:45
so, some of the textures look good, some dont. this seems to frequently be what is trailing behind in games these days. the models look magnificent...but textures failing

I watch a demo of this last year and it seems to have some potential. Making 5 minutes of gameplay look good is one thing... making 6-10 hours good is another.

Erm, 360 actually has more 1080p games than PS3...
Either way, the vast majority of 1080p games seem to take a hit graphically so I'd rather they nailed it down to 720p.

I know, I just meant how is what you said now a spoiler since it's in the pics on this page? Although having said that the "spoilers" have been in all the pics shown so far I think, lol! I don't consider it much of a spoiler as there were only 2 possibilities really (or 3 if you're blind) and what they've said just confirmed one of them. (As you can see I'm not actually revealing it, just incase anyone else thinks it's a spoiler.)
