are these really screenshots? doubt the game will have this amount of antialiasing. Or does it? anyway, the ambient of this game looks fantastic.

According to Blim with his preview, it does have this level of antialiasing.

This is the kind of thing I expected from this generation of hardware, day one. But only now are they starting to deliver on this.

Can't wait till May!

will this be game of the year? The potential is definitely there ... Badalamenti music as well, it can hardly get any better than this ;)

Yes this could possibly be game of the year not for me though that is Bayonetta but this an entire different beast.

I really cant wait to play it.

Its funny how amazing some games look, and then they get delayed for decade, and then when they show it again it just looks like most of other games...

Anyways, looking forward to see more of this game. Hopefully it lives up to its expectations, not like RE5 or Alone in the Dark...

If you are talking about this game, the long development time was pretty much given. The remedy team is VERY small compared to what the industry usually does and they all work in the same premises, at any time everyone can gather into a single room to make sure everything is rolling forwards correctly. So.. yeah.. it's been a long time but the studio has amazing track record so far. Can't wait to pick this up :)

God hopes this not turns out as Alone in the Dark did. Remedy are good, so this better be good.

I am not much looking forward to the supposed plot that is centered around, "What I write is becoming reality" (a bit too SK for me). But I will take what I can get. It is looking great and the play through sequences are quite compelling to watch. I just hope the caliber of writing/voice acting help to raise the bar a little bit more....and that I have fun (dread) playing it.

I was wondering the same. At first glance I'd say they were from the PC version of the game, but there's no debate here since the PC version was cancelled. The game has been confirmed that it will have 4x anti alias. I'll believe it when I see it. So far, the devs have been able to talk the talk and somewhat walk the walk. Let's see if they can back it up come release.

i'm kinda the opposite. the gameplay still hasnt quite caught my attention yet...but the story sounds pretty interesting, and if anything it'll be that which keeps me playing the game. i do wish the facial animations (and animation in general) where up to the standards of the visuals tho. same goes for the voice acting. can't wait to play it tho.

I'm on the fence.
The game is a complete 180 from what it was originally claimed to be in 2005, so I have no idea what I'm in for. It looks pretty, won't know if its engaging until I actually play it. But do I want to fork over $60 for something I'm now completely blind about other than some screens and video clips...

looking stunning, as always.

But the developers talking about additional episodes are really starting to put me off.
Just today there was something about how they're aiming to release a "season 2" of it this year as dlc... i've waiting 5yrs for this game, for that wait i want a full and finished product. I do not want something lasting little more than 9hrs and then have them offer me dlc episodes a few months later.. if it took them 5yrs to work on the main game then theres not a chance that that dlc has been worked on after the games shipped.

Look, theres some guys from Lost an Damned in screen 3!

So would you rather pay $100 for 18hours? I'd say it's not the quantity, but it's the quality of those hours that really matters :)

There is also a lot more to developing game than putting out content. They did change directions and make up new plans that suited them better. Maybe they spent 4½ years doing the technical aspect to make it easy to put out more quality content. Well, yeah, maybe it's not that simple. But I will reserve my judgement on the matter :)

    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (4 minutes ago)

    Tiz As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (7 minutes ago)
