Images of Mass Effect

Images of Mass Effect

The alien races from Mass Effect are shown in these new pictures of the games. Discover the Asari, Elcor, Hanar, Keeper, Quarian, Salarian, Turian and Volus faces. Some of them are quite surprising, my favorite being Quarian with its crazy design.

Ahh wall of text. Needs some formatting like having little pictures by each of the descriptions.

Shots look really great, and I'm loving the alien (?) in the 3rd shot.

Although I am a huge fan, whats up with the details on the clothing?

It seems that the visuals on this game as screenshots are best when it is officially from BioWare which they uploads on their own site.
Some looks cool some looks bad...definitely not the best ones which BioWare have released.

Anyway, I know how the game looks in gameplay with all the footages of the beginning of it...etc. it looks much better than the screens.

Years of waiting, I can't believe its next month :D

I noticed that a while ago, and it could be that those other shots are kind of bullshots, or that in some areas because of the number of characters the textures are decreased, or it could be textures in mid-stream, but I've never seen a game take TOO long to load a texture, so I would think it might be hard to get a shot in that little gap of time.

just watch the videos, all is well. we all no how screenshots can turn out, every game out there suffers the same fate.

Some are bullshots, some are not...and some are just bad compressed.

And as you said DC, screenshots don't do a game justice in this league as Mass Effect.

Like I said, the gameplay footages that I have seen (which is all of them) they all look great in motion, and it is obviously the final phase in terms of visuals anyways.

I agree. Some look great. Some look bad. Ugh.

would say good and less good, not bad. Beside, it Bioware and the game will rock despite how the graphic is.

If you notice in the videos we've seen, the main characters look great, but the NPCs have less texture detail & geometry to them. I assume this is so they can swap bodies/colours and hair to make them look a little different. This I feel is highlighted by the screens here.

HOWEVER!

Have faith! It's still gonna kick ass.

bioware make some interesting alien creatures. second pic was pretty funny.
Commented on 2007-10-11 11:55:47
Damn, I hope they get the same kind of exploration feeling into this that Star Control 2 and Elite(s) had. That would be rock. I am just somehow sceptical about the scope of the game, even though it has been stated that you should be able to visit many star systems.

Argh, I can't wait.

the one thing people shouldnt get too hyped about in this game is the graphics imo...
i think the characters look awesome, but the rest looks meh
just think about how big the game is
its inevitable that they dont have the recorses or time to make the envioroments as good as the characters

and from what ive seen of the envioroments, they look very much the same
(lots of grey concrete stuff, those typical unreal engine trees, and general dark and dullness...)

and that opinion is based on only what ive seen, and my common sense telling me that making games isnt magic, that it would be impossible to make every bit of a huge game look amazing

hopefully im very wrong, im still buying it anyway :P
but for me its not the graphics, or even the gameplay ( i hate squad based stff) but for me what will make this game is the story and making choices

Very tired of screenshots. Just let me play it already.

Hope this game lives up to the hype. Can't wait to start it. Also, please let the story be good and interesting and not coma inducing.
