Amped 3: 13 images

Amped 3: 13 images

2K Games put up the following 13 images of their upcoming Xbox 360 launch title, Amped 3. At least I think it looks wonderful, and I love going out on the hills (in front of the TV) and go snowboarding. But - the lack of any real Xbox Live mode is a big dissapointment.
Update: Video was already up on XY, but at least the images are new.

you can,t say its 25% complete when it got about cople more weeks to release for the usa. may be its a xbox version

There is no Xbox version, this IS the 360 version. Sure it doesn't have good lighting, but really that's all it's missing. Major normal mapping on the snow and the characters, in addition to a near infinite draw distance put this above any current gen game.

As for the video, it gives me a missing file error.

Although I'm blown away by the lack of any real competetive or co-op Live mode, especially with the mountains being so damned huge, I personally don't mind because I don't care for Live.

Sick and cheap. Amped 3 menu's look just like SSX on Tour. Pathetic.

looks better than xbox1, but not as good as it probably can. Ppl first impression of these next gen games will be the graphics. If these games don't scream "next gen" then alot will pass.

Amped 2 was already in 720p.

Let me link you guys to a HD trailer that proves beyond any doubt that this couldn't be done on current gen hardware. It's still sort of underwhelming, but it's definitely a nice and sharp looking game.

http://xboxmovies.teamxbox.com/xbox-360-hires/2627...

It's pretty huge but easily the best way to experience the game until it's in people's hands.

LOL at manager and his huge typo!!! "At least I think it looks wonderful"--You better correct that manager before everyone thinks you are a fool.
Commented on 2005-11-01 01:14:19 In reply to LEBATO
You know what Lebato? Maybe somewhere, some day, someone will refer to a game in something other than graphical terms? He might even think it looks wonderful from a gameplay standpoint. HE MAY NOT EVEN MEAN IT'S VISUALLY THE MOST MIND BLOWING AND LIFE ALTERING GAME EVER, just that it looks like a lot of fun.

I know, OMG! It's a crazy thought.. Gameplay!? I mean that's so exotic and new and bold.. Surely a game's graphics can't just be well above Xbox for someone to like it? Certainly that is the signs of madness at work! IT HURTS MY BRAIN TO THINK IT!

I could go on but I won't.
Commented on 2005-11-01 01:20:51
That's ok, you don't have to go on. You are right.

But that was more of a joke, nothing else. And when anyone says it looks wonderful, how am I supposed to know what he's talking about? Regardless, it was simply a joke, don't take it serious--that includes you manager.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @nostradamus: BioWare talks Mass Effect Andromeda squadmates, cut content and that missing release date: [url] Read 5th answer. (4 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (4 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus almost finishing jak and daxter. So much fun. Whay are a pos knack 2 being made, and not a new Jak? (4 Hours ago)
