Images of Conan

Conan equals massacre, so are you really that surprised to see all this blood in the game? It seems to be shaping up pretty well, and we're looking forward to it alot. Who knew Conan would make it back to the 21th century?

if you look at pic 3 you can See that they are going for a crackdownish cartoony approach on the graphics.

God you are on a roll, Manager.. It's hard to keep up! ;)

I seriously don't know what to think of this Conan game. I like some of it and despise it for being such a ripoff of God of War. Visually it's a mixed bag too. Some nice shader/lighting on the kraken making it look almost clay like. Too bad the rest doesn't follow suit...

This isn't the MMO Conan, nut the Nilistic developed one? If so, it looks loads better graphically :D

Wow naked woman.

do you honestly think that this looks better than aoc?

This still looks crappy, and the cell shading seems to be tacked on at the last minute or something, to compensate or hide the fact that they couldn't do better.

I like the cell-shading. It makes it even more Frazetta-like. Love the first picture with the woman chained to the column, classic pulp ficiton Conan.

Ha, no comments about the naked boobs on the first picture? Amazing...
I dont like the fact that's cell shaded.

Looks very nice. The cartoonish graphical style seems spot on for this game. Just hope that they are able to portray the world as it was in the REH books instead of the mostly lame Marvel comics.

Thank you!!! At last someone who knows enough about Conan to actually understand whats going on here. With the exception of the "cartooniness" of the last pic, these photos are gorgeous. The first pic especially, very classic Frank Frazetta look to it. I'm sure by the time Conan releases, they'd have nailed that art direction down and the game will look pretty close to a Frazetta painting, throughout.

Just thinking that is giving me the willies. Never in my life have I ever dreamed of being able to play through an entire game (or even a part of a game) where they nailed a particular artist's style so perfectly. I guess this gen is the gen that can finally do it. First there was the Miller-esque Crackdown, and now a Frazetta-inspired Conan (both in the same year). Hopefully one of the things these games will prove to all, that this sort of thing not only can be done successfully, but should be done a little more often. The quest for hyper-realism in games is all and well, but it does get very old and very one-track minded. It's always nice to see devs explore what is possible with the medium. Now lets just hope the game plays as good as it looks.

    crookedmind Question for you guys, since most of you are console-centric. Is the playstation network cross compatible with their older consoles? For instance, do ps3 games also released for ps4 have the ability.. (2 Hours ago)
