Commented on 2006-05-12 00:31:28
No it was scary for me as well.

Wow, the animation is bad. Stinks of bad motion capture. This is no improvement from current gen games. Horrible lip sync. Facial expression? What facial expressions...

Anyone seen Stahlberg's real-time work? Much better work done 5 years ago.

Indigo Prophecy had some asstastic graphics, but the story and presentation kept me glued to my computer for hours. This demo is cool, but still needs a ton of work. Hopefully they can pull it off, because I cannot wait to see what this studio can come up with.

That kind of creeped me out, not sure why, but she just looks creepy. I thought the Tiger Woods tech stuff from the conference was pretty creepy too.

hmm, i'm not sure what all the fuss is about after seeing the vid. it's really not that great. the environment is pretty awesome, but the character model and animation really isn't that great. i would expect more from such a closed environment, and better animation and character model. there's a lot of real good stuff there as well though

Promising. Not quite there yet, though. I'll be looking forward to whatever David Cage et al will be making next. And if you were wondering the about the actress...

im glad it wasnt just me that was unimpressed by the scary character animation. Its even scarier in the football and basketball titles on the xbox 360 at the moment. The graphics, the texture quality and all the effects are great. But they really need to work on character animation its still far from being cg quality like toy story or monsters inc.

Edit: oh or advent children. Which is a great example of how motions should be expressed in computer graphics.

That was funny :D

some bits were suerbly realistic but just as with the first Indigo Prophecy/ has that certain "unfinished" feel about it.
Also i hated Fahrenheit...can't explain here why (wud be way too long)...I wrote an article about how much it sucked and converted all of my friends to hating it....ha. But really, great face expressions.

ezekiel, the environment thing doesnt mean squat....if u have a good eye u would notice that mgs4 models are more complex,a little hint the fingers and hair geometries,and there are many of them in larger environments....
of course heavy rain really impress for its realism but mgs4 isnt even going toward 100% realism(its the mgs series style)and its still better from a technical point of view...
basically mgs4 looks better...i wish we could have a 15min hd would give us the same creepy uncanny valley effect like heavy rain....

Hope it turns out like that in the final game. Eye textures look a little overkill though.

About the game

What's up?

    rayy has more fun* (43 minutes ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @KORNdog: TW3 can't be a Skyring well done because W3 is not trying to be Skyrin. Different games and different type of RPG I think. You could say one more fun quest than the other though. (44 minutes ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind ... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (8 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (8 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (8 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (11 Hours ago)
