Looks nice. I'm actually optimistic for a multiplayer focused Fable without Molyneux at the helm.

.... *sigh*
Screenshots seem like a silly way to show off DYNAMIC GI. This looks nice, but none of this shows it being dynamic.

Absolutely true, the marketing people are making fools of them selves yet again.

Edit: scratch that, the post on the Lionhead blog that is linked was written by a graphics programmers, and it at least shows comparison screenshots between non-GI / GI scenes. Still, the dynamic aspect is not shown at all.

I can only agree with this. I was never fond of Molyneux' overpromising and under delivering. So far Lionhead is taking it easy with the promises. This could turn out nicely, and hopefully a decent combat system too.

I must admit. This is beautiful. Love the lighting.

This game looks like the like a last generation title much like the first 360 fable did when it debuted.

Maybe you should read the source :P

Yeah, well see the secondary bounces don't seem to pick up much color. All this supposed GI seems to do, in these screens at least, is make some of the shadows a wee bit lighter. It shows by far clearer in some of the "programmer art" shots posted on the blog.

Although this is true next gen lighting techniques being used here, they are obviously exaggerated for "artistic" reasons. These kinds of indirect lighting solutions will make a huge difference to games, but they won't be the most accurate representations of how light actually works. GI is entirely material sensitive in how it's supposed to work and react. The first screenshot with the orange hue coming from the sun hitting the sand and bleeding onto the walls is far too exaggerated. If the ground were a opaque or diffuse smooth or reflective surface, then it would be accurate. I hope developers don't go overboard with it just because they can.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks NFL2K was also the franchise that made it painfully obvious how little Madden was changing year to year. EA had to buy the NFL, and 2K bought the MLB in response I believe. (3 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Even though EA had their games on the Saturn and that flopped hard, the Saturn ran headlong into the famous "$299" mic drop moment. (18 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Or "threat". I should say. Then again maybe they had every right to be worried as NBA 2K series forced EA to retire NBA Live. (22 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I believe it. 2K had the better basketball game and NHL game and EA pretty much saw it as a threat. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Peter Moore's response.. being in the weird position of being a former SoA boss and current EA Sports boss: [url] (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Not sure how true: [url] (25 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks that's true also. 2K sports made better games than EA for a long time too. Most people were just so fixated on Madden they didn't know what they were missing. (25 minutes ago)
