Sony Online releases some new images of The Agency. Let's hope we'll have a demo soon to try out the game and see what it's all about.

Astonishingly abomination

It's got the whole Perfect Dark vibe, which isn't bad, but come on it's 2008. Let's see something at least - a little - creative.

Screens really bad must be compression looks good from videos on gametrailers like the concept and scale of the game. :)

With all due respect to the developers of this game but good God, the textures and character models are RUBBISH!

Errr...the concept IS creative, but here, it's the textures / polygon count that lacks, its terrible, at least judging from these screenshots.

This is a PSN game right? Not a full priced game?

Does anyone remember when the trailer looked kick ass? Where did it all go wrong....

Characters almost look like they were made in MS Paint.

I think these shots are very reminisce of the Cruis'n Wii shots released months ago. These were obviously smaller shots that have been blown up and distorted by a terrible resizing filter (probably no filter from the looks of it). Go watch the latest trailer on Gametrailers for a real look at the game.

It's called pre-alpha guys. Look it up if you're unsure of the word. http://www.gametrailers.com/player/29479.html

Concept's great, the setting is great (like Synce pointed out, the same future/disco like vibe that PDZ went for) but without proper indications of how it'll all play in practice the only thing to fall back on seems to be the dire and messy Shadowrun.

I hope it'll be a lot less chaotic when you actually get down to shooting people, while still remaining hectic enough to be fun. (And funny really.)

Judging by the HUD it certainly seems these aren't the original resolution. Really looking forward to the game though, the demonstration was great.

Yeh it's pre-alpha and looks better in motion anyways. Lets not judge too early i think it look alright atm
Commented on 2008-01-09 20:16:12
Pre-alpha is a BS term that originated with the Killzone 2 hype, because the graphics didn't live up to the hype. Alpha stages = earliest playable stages.

Snooper -

"Let's hope we'll have a demo soon to try out the game and see what it's all about."

Not anytime soon. In the latest Developer's Diary the producer said they had not even entered Alpha state. We will likely not see any kind of demo/beta until it at least finishes Alpha.

It is slated for the PSN and PC online distribution.

No it isn't, it'll be a boxed game. It's online only though.
Commented on 2008-01-09 22:07:56
Well even the textures don't look too amazing, but I guess we'll see how it comes along.

I kind of like the style, it's like Perfect Dark Zero, only without horrible art (but less technical graphics for now).

Could have sworn I read a PSN download, a PC download, and boxed versions were planned. Could be wrong, as I have a horrible memory.
Commented on 2008-01-09 23:49:31
You know... this would be an amazing PSN game only because it could be like: get online for $10 and create your character with like 5 missions or something; then you buy mission packs and such and the developers continue to distribute more as time goes by.

Then again, it could just as well go the way of Warhawk; digital distribution and physical copies.
Commented on 2008-01-10 23:57:50
One little difference ChaosKnight: Warhawk seemed fun from the start.

WTF is this shit?

Seriously, what the hell happened to this game? I hate to say it but it seems that impressive video we saw before was fudged because those screens look horrible in comparison.

About the game


What's up?
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus at least it run like a bige pile of hunking crap. 1-5fps for such a shitty looking 2D game (even if the detailed zoom-in/out 2d arte is cool) vs a 30fps LiS. comparison by my gaming toaster. (3 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus Oxenfree is made w/ Unity, by default its shit. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: Love makes everything possible. :) (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @asdfg: No update since N:A launched on Steam. What was updated was Kaldaien's mod, which is a Steam user who made a mod/tool to fix resolution, framerate and other issues with the game. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Ironically, Oxenfree has far many more rarely used words than Life is Strange. Though the game is very good. Still, Life is Strange is eons better because it leaves a mark you never forget. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Sdarts: I'm not sure I buy it.. if that's Obama he got awfully pale. Plus that takes place dozens of years in the future, no? (9 Hours ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg @Sdarts: read that they have recently released an update which ups performance a lot. (9 Hours ago)
