Amazing quality. I doubt there will be many playing this game at these settings thou.

I dunno, it looks nice and all.. But it also looks like an updated Quake4 engine to me.. Still the same flaws in it like not being able to create perfect round objects and a somewhat platic feel and look to everything.. We'll see, but tbh I don't feel like ID is pushing hardware and tech anymore like they were in the early days.. Now they're just in it for the money like almost everybody else and therefor focus on getting their stuff on consoles aswell..

Love the MadMax-theme!

Rage will bring something new to the world of gaming.

While it doesn't have the level of realism that crytech create, it still is a very great looking engine/game.

Not sure what to expect though in terms of gameplay.

It looks pretty good, I just want to see how the gameplay is like, if that interest me, then I am in.

same here, it definately isnt anything thats wowing me. but it looks decent enough i guess. i'd much rather this be a new doom game tho, but we'll see. motorstorm meets quake may actually be less stupid then it sounds.....lol

the early vids made us all go wow and for good reason, now its just the select images (namely the ones with a good draw distance) these images in particular have a clay like look to the character models which drags the visuals down quite abit and it really does feel like an extension to their old engine. Having said that though, the engine does look very nice still and can't complain too much end of the day, lets just hope they can turn it into something fun.

It think it looks great, but i didn't expect it to look out of this world either.

Picture 3.................................... ZOMG.......
Commented on 2009-08-19 21:58:00
Id nothing more

If you like picture 3, check out the new Call of Jerez game.

yet Another example of relying on texturing too heavily. Seems like the modeling is unnecessarally low poly. Textures are great, though...
Commented on 2009-08-19 22:49:54
so much WIN.
Commented on 2009-08-19 22:57:16
Similar observations as others. Textures obviously look great. Geometry looks kinda low-poly compared to other games. Character lighting is passable at best.

I'm annoyed that in this day and age they are still using constant ambient. :(

Superior PC version.
Commented on 2009-08-19 23:00:45
Really nice!
Commented on 2009-08-19 23:06:36
Wait a minute, it doesn't glow and shine like most games these days (cough... UE3.. cough)? You can actually see those details, textures and stuff?
YAY!!!!!

how do you know thats not the console version? It most probably is from the PC but i remember people saying the same about Alan wake, and ME2 footage here too..99% of which has been the 360 version shown.

What is it about people here constantly boasting about their PC's lately? Atleast with the console versions you're game can only ever look better than its shown in screen shots and streamed clips when home.. where as how it will look and run on your PC is anybodys guess.

Speaking of which.. ID have comfirmed that they've got the 360 build running at a solid 60fps now.. the ps3 version currently at a not so hot 23-30seconds. But confident it will hit the 60 target.

dont think i mentioned that it was "hot off the press news".. only that the games confirmed running at 60fps..which can only be a good thing.

You are seriously wrong. Tech 5 is the most advanced game engine ever developed by a huge degree. It's 60fps for a start, even on consoles, with a vast open world, mega texturing for virtually endless variety in textures, and as can be seen from the screen shots, huge draw distances. There is no other engine in existence that is anywhere near this level.
Commented on 2009-08-20 00:08:09
yep theres alot of new stuff their doing with that engine to get the most out of closed platforms.

Theres a decent interview on GT right now about it
Commented on 2009-08-20 00:50:05
Saying that this engine is anything less than impressive is stupid. The only multiplatform engine that I've seen that rivals what this shows is the CT3 engine.

If it is, it's not impressing me that much with what I've seen of it sofar.. And 60 fps with huge draw distance etc is nothing special aswell (on PC).. We'll see, but the fact that it has to run on 4 year old (console)hardware means it cannot use the latest tech as standard, that's what I meant when I said ID is not pushing hardware and tech anymore like they were in the old days (when they were PC exclusive and you needed the latest and fastest hardware to run their games on high settings)..

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: probably an extra smaller scale game maybe (bully 2). or it would just shave a year off a mainline GTA dev cycle. fact is they're making very detailed open worlds, it takes time. (0 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog things will go digital, as much as i fight it, i can see it happening by PS6. but streaming seems like a novel way to get around BC and nothing more. (2 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog especially with the stonger focus on bigger resolutions. we can barely stream 720p with reasonable input lag, how do you expect them to do it 4k or hell, 8k? (3 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: given there seems to be a lack of development in that area recently, with most forerunners giving up entirely. i doubt that's the future (5 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker You do have to wonder how it would have looked right now if GTAO hadn't been that insane succes. Would've we had more Rockstar games on current gen now? I think so (6 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @droezelke: Streaming in 8k... maybe (31 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: I don't believe there will be a PS6. By that time I suspect it will become a streaming service. (48 minutes ago)
