Maybe, but apart from 90% of all other games, this actually have a beautiful art style...

Looking forward to this

yeah visuals look terrible in those screens. I know people here throw around "ps2 standard" alot but some of those screens could easily be mistaken for a ps2 game with the poor quality of the textures.

Have to see it in motion.. it's not out till winter and polish is usually the last thing to happen in a games developement

From a technical standpoint i'm not impressed, but the game looks like a 3d version of something from Ghibli, and well, that excuses a lot :)

I think it looks interesting.

Maybe studio Ghibli sans the personality. Myazaki's characters are much more alive than this stuff( which is really where his work shines)...

I hope they work on making the gameplay good - graphics are good enough for me, for I really dig the art style.

typical for asian games, they look pretty bad. exept of final fantasy
Commented on 2010-03-29 18:26:00
Typical? You think games such as Metal Gear Solid 4, Resident Evil 5 and Soulcalibur IV look bad too? O.o

Personally I prefer a good art style over tech if I have to choose.

And btw, this games was in development long before The Last Guardian was announced, so it's definitaly not just a ripoff...

wow this looks good, it doesn't look like ps2 unless you guys were playing some ps2 games I don't know about (or fixed camera ps2 games)... it has a ico feel to it as well... curious to see more.

The graphics aren't very impressive technically, but the game has a nicce touch to it that makes me interested in it.

You know, i kind of doubt that Miyazaki draws and animates everything, especially since the ghibli movies he doesn't direct still look just as good as the ones that he is involved in. A lot of the personality in the studio ghibli productions comes from the excellent animation and how the characters are built. These shots sort of convey something like that to me. The world, while not high in polygons or texture resolutions, looks inviting and fresh and while the character design is something that bothered me at first, the more i look at it the more i like it tbh. I just hope that the music and gameplay delivers as well, then we might have a great game here i think.

Yeah, but typically you have the concept artist who does the general feel and main design. Then the leads plot out the keyframes. After that, you have your peons do the tweening. All Myazaki needs to do is set the tone.
I understand what you mean though. My problem is that the guy looks very zombie. I want something like Blue Dragon were you can see the animation and personality even in the stills...

I hate that LOD they use on the plants. Christ.

Well when you are trying to go for a stylized look, a unique visual identity, you need to be willing to make an engine with at least decent fidelity, so as not to ruin the effect of your style and design.

looks like cheap version of Last guardian for X360 :)

About the game

    KORNdog Luring those dynamic hordes to ripper camps sounds fun because they worship them. They won't fight them they'll simply be eaten willingly. Lol (4 Hours ago)

    KORNdog I told you how it worked when game informer did their deep dive coverage. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog They've put in challenge hordes that are super tough to beat that are pre-determined in size and strength. You'd be stupid to fight those without a ton of resources. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: that's the challenge hordes. The end game ones. There is an overworked horde that moves and sleeps, and eats based on how you've affects the rest of the world. (4 Hours ago)

    droezelke @GriftGFX: Bioshock 1 is an absolute classic. Bioshock 2 wasn't Ken Levine. Infinite was just good. (5 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Oh yeah, it definitely had something going on for it. The ending to me was just...ugh. The 1st managed to keep me attention throughout, I just wanted to be done with Infinite halfway. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Amazing characters, and great dialog, but the plot has serious issues and I felt like the way it expanded the universe and connected to the other game was convoluted. (8 Hours ago)
