Still looks great to me. I like how they aren't being so Black and White with the story...

The set up seems interesting. But I have the feeling this game will have a horrible IQ on consoles.

did people just learn that today or something, i've seen IQ thrown around more today then i EVER have.

anyway, great style, everything else however doesnt interest me at all. i dont like the set up one bit. reminds me of shadowrun on 360 or unreal torney 3 for some reason. a multiplayer masquerading as a single player.

IQ - intelligence quotient, I don't see how that applies.

Um yea that was sarcasm

I agree with everything you said. The devs can spend almost three minutes trying to tell me that, in effect, you always play the "good" guys, but I have a feeling the game's SP will still just boil down to Unreal Tournament against bots.

Looking forward to getting my hands on a demo of this at the Eurogamer Expo later this year ^.^

I just noticed it's looking just as muddy in the distance as is the MAfia 2 demo for the Xbox. IQ IQ IQ!!!

Lets have a look.
On a side note there have been more developer diaries. :)

when I first say this game I thought it looked great, but now it looks kind of stale.
Commented on 2010-08-10 23:32:35
The art direction is good. You can feel the timesplitters vibe to it.
Commented on 2010-08-11 01:10:07
One thing i have loved about this game since i originally clapped eyes on it are the character models!
Commented on 2010-08-11 01:33:03
I think the IQ on the game is good but a good IQ its not enough.....

IQ.... IQ!!

It looks like unreal engine, the art looks good. Gfx overall is fine.
Commented on 2010-08-11 05:39:33
Well, I'm mostly interested in multiplayer FPS games anyway, so I'm still interested. And it's the Doom 3 engine--id tech has legs.
Commented on 2010-08-11 13:31:22
I'll have to see more to really judge if I like the direction its going in.
Commented on 2010-08-11 15:05:56
still looks good to me. But he ps3 E3 footage of actual gameplay looked terrible. And, worryingly, its by the guys who's last game was quake wars - nuff said

ETQW gets a lot more hate than it deserves. It's hardly surprising on consoles, but as many flaws as the PC game had, it was still unique and well worth experiencing.

Uh, I love my consoles, STFU. The best FPS this year is going to be Halo Reach, by far. So what if I think that BF3 going multiplatform is a horribly scary thing (sorry, I don't want more noob bullshit). The console port of ETQW was atrocious.

I really hate this "looks like unreal engine", no, it looks like a similar ART STYLE used in the Unreal Tournament games

Also, its using a heavily modified Doom 3 engine (id Tech4)

I don't even find that to be the case. To me, this looks stylistically closer to Rage than anything Unreal-related.

  • crookedmind
    crookedmind Question for you guys, since most of you are console-centric. Is the playstation network cross compatible with their older consoles? For instance, do ps3 games also released for ps4 have the ability.. (12 minutes ago)

    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (2 Hours ago)
