If only this game wasent behind a paywall, i would totally buy this, even if it had offline single player even better.

this is one of the more anticipated titles for me. i'm dubious about bungie's ability to make good games nowadays, but i'm digging the artstyle and i like the borderlands-esque gameplay. hoping it's the co-op awesomeness it promises to be.

I like the look of the game, even though the aesthetic is a bit more kiddish/cartooney than id prefer. I'm however a bit worried about the environments being too restricted/linear.

Looking at those graphics i bet its 60fps. Very careful choice of effects and texture resolution.

there is nothing careful with bungie when it comes to graphics. they just plain suck at them since a decade a ago.

Actually they have some of the best engineers in the biz. And artists as well. But they are building for different effects than most games and they are also releasing a cross gen game. There is only so much they can do with developing in that direction.
And I think this game actually looks pretty sharp. It's no Battlefield 4, and when you get up close on enemies liek that first shot, things aren't crystal clear, but there is still quite a lot fo detail. And the lighting looks great, the effects look sharp, the textures are actually pretty good at the distances you actually see them in the game. It is still a real-time game, with a lot going on and lots of big effects and everything. Where they might lack in certain areas, Bungie always excels in others. Hell, Halo 3 had some of the best water of the last generation, and it was pretty early in the lifecycle of the consoles! And the Halo games have always been about scale, which they do very well, and with a shit ton of complex and bombastic particles going off at any given moment. It doesn't have to look like Crysis 3 to be a technically or artistically proficient game.
Also keep in mind, all of the Halo games were running on the Halo 3 engine, which was probably an extension of the original couple of games. They never really had a chance to build an engine from the ground up after Halo 3, even if they significantly redid aspects of it for Reach. This on the otherhand uses none of their old tech. And I think you'd a fuckin' troll if you are going to sit her and tell me Destiny looks awful. You don't like the aesthetic? Fine. But technically it looks pretty sharp. It's no Crysis 3 but it does more than a lot of new gen games do.

This and MGS5 are my most anticipated this year. I would buy this game just for the music.

Fantastic. If the actual game looks nearly as good as these screenshots on the Xbox One, it'll more than make up for the disappointment (graphically) that Halo 3 was.

Well yeah.

XBL and PSN+, those are paywall.
You got to pay for those subscribtions to be able to play this game, and i am against this type of bullshit.

Same game on PS3 you can play them by just buying the game and thats it. It pisses me off how cross-gen games like COD Ghosts, BF4 and now Destiny on PS4 you gotta pay to play but on PS3 you dont have to.
Why? better graphics, other than that, its the same game content across all platforms, dumb crap which i wont support.

If you care for the games Sony offers from Ps+, i for one dont...atleast not on PS4 yet so for me its useless.
I wouldnt mind sony making AC4 free for Ps+ on PS4, so i can DL it while i have my subscribtion which i think ends in 2 months.

Yep, I do like the look of this. I don't get how people can complain about the visuals either. I think they're fine.

Killzone Shadowfall happened. They can try to push their cross-gen excuses aqll they want, but they don't stick... sucking at graphic fidelity for 3 consecutive games is enough.

Different art styles, different targets. One does not equate to being better than the other simply because it has some pretty post effects and a lovely particle and DOF effects. Or better bells and whistles. One is linear, the other is larger in scope. For a game large in scope to look this good is pretty decent. The art style speaks for itself.

Agreed. I'm all for better graphics (and I love Killzone's visuals), but the scale on this is far greater so a little dampening on the graphics is fine for me. Not to mention this is an early title on the system so you can't hold too much against it.
Commented on 2014-01-22 16:29:52
If this is as fun as it sounds I'll be far more impressed by the clever game design than killzone which was very pretty but also turned out to be a very piss poor game.

wthat does graphics have to do with gameplay. they are drab looking models and textures.

And the scope means jack shit... if they are as big as the halo games, then it keeps being shit, not "open-world" at all... even killzone has big open areas.
