Frame City Killer: Trailer & even more images

Frame City Killer: Trailer & even more images

It sure has been a great week for Namco's Frame City Killer. Alot of images, and now: finally a new trailer, and a quite good one too! But - you know the feeling when you hear really, really bad music? You know the punch in the stomach you feel when you hear really, really bad japanese music? Well, you know where I'm going at, and just relax and listen to the trailer. 20 images from the Xbox Live mode added too.

Basically it's a mini game where you have to kill as much people as possible and you get cash rewards. With this cash you can buy some gachapons (like in Shenmue). No idea if there is more or not.

i dunno... why is it that the pre-rendered footage does look so much better compared to the ingame-material (especially the lightning)? unreal-engine can do so much better than even the prerendered stuff :-/

Hey, it's looking very promising. Not half as bad as the first few videos/shots. Actually looking forward to rent it.
Commented on 2005-10-29 02:12:59
heh...the file name is pretty funny, abbreviated as fck.... ;)
the game itself is looking leaps and bounds better than before, but at the end of the day, it will be remembered as a launch title, not much more.

Damn The cgi Sould be gameplay grahpics, it looks like a pimped out xbox game
Commented on 2005-10-29 03:31:29
It isn't a launch title =P Expect this in february I believe, so it should get MUCH better. Just look at hos nba2k6 looked at x05, and look at it now. The character models are almost all fixed, the ninja cheerleaders have been replaced with actual cheerleaders, and it is looking top notch.

And what's up with that music, I swear it's in every trailer I've seen so far. The action looked good, but I want to see actual in-gmae stuff and not pre rendered or CG cutscenes.

actually bad Japaneese music brings back memories of the Ghost in the Shell movie music...cringe

Shenmue had great music, but terrible voice overs, WERE ARE THE SAILORS' LOL
Commented on 2005-10-29 10:40:46
The CG looks great and the characters really aren't that far behind (other than the hair)

I wonder if Unreal Engine 3 has a weakness in that respect? None of the other UE3 games have prominent hair as it's covered by helmets or bandanas or they have shaved heads!
Commented on 2005-10-29 11:24:21
I think it's a matter of developers not really knowing how to solve the hair issue. I think the best looking hair I've seen is prolly in the MGS4 trailer, but that still doens't explain how a long haired girl like that is supposed to be tackled from a visual standpoint.

It's clearly easier if you're going for an anime style like DoA or a stylished look like PDZ because then you don't have to worry about texture so much. What really makes that blonde girl in this game's hair look awful is the disguisting texture/normal mapping on it and the fact that it's just a chunk of ickyness. It could certainly be engine related though of course, since most in-game animation stuff is modelled in games using UE, UE2 and UE3.

That's really my worry in this whole licensing craze of the UE3. Console games start looking as generic and static as PC games. :(
Commented on 2005-10-29 11:37:46
I don't think the technique used to make hair has anything to do with UE3.
I've seen better hair done in UE2 games, that flows and such.

As well, these developers just don't know how to use Specular maps in an convincing fashion.
