Why is there a football player...?

That looks like Cole during his playing years.
But the announcement of the delay kinda made me lose interest in this game for now.
Will the graphics hold out even a year from now? I say yes. Even GOW2 has quite decent graphics from today's standpoint.
Still, delaying of this beauty makes me wanna cry.

This is "Thrashball" Cole (MP Variant).

The characters are overpowering the environment(Graphic Speaking)

I mean, the shots have an incredible amount of AA that won't be present in the final game. However, it gives us a good indicator of what the art direction will be like.

I thought it wouldn't get much better than Gears 2, but seeing the gameplay videos of just the multiplayer its very impressive how much better it looks, just lighting and effects alone. Pretty bummed over the BS delay, but its sure to be very polished.

Impressive graphics; the textures and lighting are off the hook!
I don't think I've been this impressed since the build up to the release of the 360/Gears.

Wow, they are really going to town with the female characters. I'm glad to see it too. And I think Thrashball should be a multiplayer game type.

atleast the delay offers them no excuse not to have the multiplayer working day 1. Dedicated serves will be a plus too

Well Gears 2 was UE3, this is like UE3.8. It looks leaps and bounds better. If you want to see how impressive the engine is, download the UDK from Epic if you have a really nice rig. Its hugely impressive.

Carmine looks really badass, btw. He's like the human version of the butchers.
It's really crazy how she takes that shotgun shot right in the stomach but I hope they'll work out the facial expressions too. Gears is slower-paced compared to Unreal Tourney so it should be easier to enjoy the moments.

Brutal MP footage.

I like this game disemboweled bodies, the graphic quality and robustness of the artistic aspect.
But to see more grenades and a rugby player who does not know crap here, I removed the desire to buy the game.
Remove all new granades i made only the granades of original GoW. And remove it stupid rugby player that nothing have in here.
Well... i understand that EPIC don´t wait buy in Europe o Asia more copies.

i dont get why they do this when we've SEEN it doesnt look as good? that goes for all devs. photomode is fine, but this is beyond bullshottery.

Good find!

Gears 3 will be damn fine even at 1280x720 with 2xAA. We´ll get a multiplayer beta and dedicated servers. Isn´t that damn awesome? Yes, it is!

About the game

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (10 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (11 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (17 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (17 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (17 Hours ago)
