Very nice improvements all round. The new Beast mode looks ridiculous as well, levelling up from a Ticker against AI humans!

Fantastic, intense footage. Visuals have been highly improved. I love the improved color palette. The fact you can switch weapons with your mates is also nice.

That Berserker on steroids is pure win. Mega game for 2011.

I love the improved color palette.
Wow! they added green to all the shades of brown they use.

How adventurous...

Their shaders are looking better and better...

Yup. Things certainly looked a lot less perpetually wet. They easily could have overdone the shine on the exposed skin, but they didn't.

Usually, the third episode in videogame sagas tends to be a flop. This, however, doesn't look floppish at all. I'll check it out for sure.

HUGE upgrade visually, and the action looked very well done. I love my Gears for its scripped nature and my Halo for its sandbox nature.

I disagree.. Only the use of colours is improved, and possibly the lighting a bit (they showed off the sunlight in the demo), but all the rest looks hardly improved at all from a technical point of view.. So it does look better overall because of the better use of colours, but it's certainly not a "huge" upgrade..

Not to mention the skin shaders and they are using a much better approach- instead of overtexturing the skin, they are suggesting the muscle underneath. Note also the nice Sub Surface Scattering. The textures are looking higher detailed as well. Thes shadows and lighting are better too. It is definitely more than "use of colours". And the trees are so much better. Yeah, I went there!!!

I like it!!
The graphic is better and monsters are more dangerous.
I also played Gears of war 1, so if Gears of war 3 will be available I'll buy it!

    KORNdog escaping is really tough though, took me a fair few tries, and isn't really worth the pay off. (24 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: i think there's only 2. die and escape. (35 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Played Resident Evil 7 demo just now, finally on Xbox One now. I still miss a third person cam but they got the atmopshere nailed, really damn good. Has anyone here got all the endings? (1 Hour ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Wow noway i'll be buying CoD Remaster anytime soon, just over 200 people were playing it on PC in the last 24 hours :/ Rest of the maps are coming including Winter crash :( (3 Hours ago)

    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (3 Hours ago)
