I totally agree. With all that Uncharted/Avatar-esque tech you would think that the end result would be better than these stiff talking manuequins

Ouch, I'm sorry but you're blind lol.

Not saying there aren't games with better models (because there are, quite a few actually). But this looks FAR from crap.

Gamers are setting their standards way too high.

This is a cross gen game, meaning that it's going to have cross gen rigging regardless of whatever tech they are using to capture animations. It looks far from crap anyway. Simple as that, really.

I think it´s fucking amazing. Characters look great and I can´t be hyped more. Love that deep deep and depressing atmosphere.

The facial animation may not be cutting edge, but from those small segments the cinematic & acting both seem to be very good. I am getting excited that story telling in this game might actually come together pretty well.

Facial animations are a bit ropey, but the visuals themselves are awesome. Great skin shaders.

So psyched for this game.

I recently read somewhere that breeders today grow their hemp with THC levels 17 times stronger then by the end of the 60's. Any truth to that ? I thought (and also read) it was all made-up BS, but after reading your comments i'm not so sure anymore...

I like how it looks but that "mad humans on the station" idea is kinda frightening (in a bad way) to me. Hope they won't fail the overall atmosphere of the Alien setting with this one.

Character and animations look pretty crap?? OMG XDD Those facial animations are not the best in videogames, but the models are pretty good, with nice skin shaders.

Animations are pretty lacking, but they aren't bad. It is in alpha still so who knows, maybe they have yet to fully implement that performance capture.

The facial animations are indeed a bit stiff, but overall this looks like a game worth waiting for and, hopefully, a game the Alien franchise deserves. One thing the devs cannot overcome though, is the fact that everybody already knows how the Alien looks, moves, acts and what it is. The fear of the unknown, grotesque creature that we felt while watching the first movie cannot be brought back...

It looks great, I can't understand the complaints and it's one of the more promising games in the forthcoming months, I really hope it will deliver.
Commented on 2014-05-14 09:02:51
Yeah, character animations/believability is just not there. We've seen the best there is out there. This seems to be a total challenge for developers for some reason. Half Life 2 did something special, and we had to wait what 10 years or so for The Last of Us to come out and really make that big step.

The bar's been set, please don't make us wait another 10 years.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (24 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (25 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (27 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (28 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (29 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (30 minutes ago)
