better shadows, smoother performance, better hair lighting, higher quality assets. PC version is also going to support ray-trace lighting and reflections.

the game seems very alike Until Dawn in visuals, minus the more rough lip sinch and the try hard facial capture if missing the point, was a bit more impressive/solid. Maybe they don't have acess to the same type of "Avatar" rigs to capture? And if it looks so similar, is this using the Guerrila's Engine? On a multiplatform game? That would be a first for sony "exclusiveness will never get a port anywhere, EVER!"stance, since... the phyre engine?

It's UE4. Some rough assets in there, but the advanced light and shadow tech fits the game well and saves the visuals from being a bit bland.

There are actually quite a few mistaking this for using UD's engine. Youtube, dualshockers, and this place too. So That speaks for itself right there. Of course the original team is working on it, making the transition seamless. UE4 has plenty of praise from all kinds of devs. Plus UE4 supports ray-trace lighting and reflections. Nuff said.

After viewing multiple playthroughs of this, the mo-cap actor for brad over compensates quiet a bit. The animations are smooth. The transitions are vey realistic. The acting performance for some of the characters, It's alright. It can be pretty convincing.

I think the actors should show more natural expressions, In their situations. Aposed to more body and facial articulation. I like the parts where they show muscle movement in the faces. The actors should retain their muscle expressions in the scenes.

More muscle movement, less actor over compensation.

Other than that it's pretty solid. Smooth framerate performance. Great shadows and lighting tech.

    nostradamus @Seth: that seems... tame? (1 Hour ago)
  • Seth
    Seth Personally i'll recommend Dead Cells or Enter the Gungeon over a bottom tier rogielike with survival elements. (12 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth Below is really hardcore game. It makes you looking in the dark for your lantern each time you die by a trap that is impossible to see. Sometimes you lose like 20 mins until you find it. (12 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @b0vril: As much as i like Red Dead, R* made the pacing for this one too slow. Half the time it felt like i was playing a cinematic. Most side missions felt more interesting than the story. (15 Hours ago)

    b0vril @toelessfoot: that's probably the best way to go. I didn't find the story or it's missions all that great. (19 Hours ago)
