Some of the best scans I've seen in quite awhile these atleast show a bit of something as opposed to some others that don't really show much or don't do a better job of showing what they intend to.

If the game is that close to being finished they should release some short gameplay clips. To me screenshots/scans are pretty worthless, they're just eye candy to fuel the hype machine (not to say you should stop Blim, you've done a lot of great work). I played and loved the old Mechwarrior series, and if this game is a spiritual successor to it then it's a definite buy for me. But until I see some real footage I haven't the slightest clue =/

Wow that is looking fantastic, I don't see the appeal of mech-robot's and all but it looks nice.

There is something wrong with the scans. Crazy compression or something.

Scans aren't hi-res, we might see some later, but I'm looking foward for more info on the gameplay.

The visuals in this game are great but the gameplay is another story

Wow, that vid looks like a lot of fun. That was from the 2k5 TGS right? They've got a lot of time to clean up any problems if it's not being released until May. So far, from the vid and the scans, it's shaping up to be an awsome experience. (Love the smoke and dirt effects)

The producer of the game said he "guarantee" that Japs will pick the 360 up for this game. There are numerous vids of the gameplay. You just gotta look hard enough on the web. :P
Commented on 2006-03-01 16:56:01
Im sure he didn't say Japs though :S

I am not sure what to make of this game. I generally don't like mech games cuz generally don't fit my fntasy but this looks like a lot of fun.

Wait, are you trying to say the gameplay sucks? The gameplay we saw from THAT video? That looked awesome to me. Let's wait and see more.

Thanks for posting that vid, hadn't seen it before. I think the gameplay looks pretty good as well.
Commented on 2006-03-01 22:39:04
Bah!

I didnt like it. I own Mechwarrior 4 and Mechassault 2 i loved both those games (hate them now though). I just really dont thing that Chromehounds will make any Japanese buy this game.

About the game


What's up?

    aphex187 Played a bit of BF1 yesterday, still doesn't hold my attention like it used to but by jingo it looks beautiful!! (49 minutes ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I know hdr makes a difference. However, is it worth 1000+ euro's? (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea that's sorta like turning up the "digital vibrance" setting in the Nvidia control panel. Without HDR we're just seeing more saturated colors. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If it was, that would be great as there would be no need to buy a HDR TV to watch HDR content as any SDR screen would be able to show HDR the same as HDR screens. I wish it was like that though. (10 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Mostly what you can see is a richer color palette due to a wider color gamut and bloom/brightness. Though it's not the same, unfortunately. (10 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts You can see it here in both the "Nano Cell" and "HDR" sections on this LG TV: [url] It's still not the same as watching in person. SDR screens can't show HDR. (10 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, you can see a difference, but only on colors and bloom. It's the same type of thing that TV manufacturers use to describe what HDR is with images. same. (10 Hours ago)
