That's a really gruesome first picture but it looks good. I want to see some gameplay video though before making my mind up if I'm going to get this or not.

I agree with KORNdog about that first picture.

Agreed, it is a bit worrying that no gameplay footage has been shown, but I reckon the whole package will overcome the occasional low-poly model. But yeah, in this day and age, a bit lame.

I couldn't care less about a low poly, low res textured model. I'm so incredibly blown away by the facial animation that the game could look even worse in other respects, and I'd still be eagerly anticipating it.

Shocking a game published by Rockstar hasn't shown gameplay. Utterly shocking and shifts the industry with this breaking marketing strategy by Rockstar would had dozens upon dozens of gameplay vids for RDR, GTA series, or Bully. Did Manhunt even have gameplay videos prior to launch?

Yeah... that's kinda worrying to be honest.

They're waiting the right time, because it might blow people's expectations. And they'll need to readjust for damage control, saying, "hey, GTA fans, it'll still have shooting! It's not just detective stuff, we threw a little something for you action duders!"

eh.. I don't see how it's that much of an issue. Yes, it's low res and it looks pretty rough up close, but it's still perfectly clear what it is.

I also think that Rockstar not being afraid to post such an image demonstrates that they aren't overly worried about being, technically, the best game, but rather shots such as these, show that they are interested in getting the best out of what they have. Their art direction is second to none.

This isn't $ony, they don't bother with photoshop and crap and take only shots that look good.

About the game


What's up?

    GriftGFX And plenty of those examples are online PVP games too. Quake Champions probably isn't one of them :D (43 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: No, not really. There are loads of examples of games with microtransactions that don't influence the game design or pollute the basic user experience. (44 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Could you imagine back when arena shooters like Q3A were very popular, and the cunts introduced pay to win bollocks like EA, 2k, Activision et al are doing? Imagine what that would have done. (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite meanwhile on the other end, some kid who just bought the game is playing as Wigan, but they're playing like Real Madrid and giving your superstars a tanking. Time to dip into your pocket to buy packs (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Online play is so heavily scripted, your team inexplicably feels like a bunch of fat pub players in a sunday league side, and you're supposed to be in control of world class athletes (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I mean, if you look at Fifa online, I've been saying for years that thing is a fix and my mates looked at me like I was mental. (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: But you know it will in some shape or form. It hurts the game by default just by being there in the same way microtransactions and all that other shite does. (3 Hours ago)
