Spider has never been a great studio, but they've always seemed to try to make interesting games, and with each game they've produced, have clearly improved and learned, which I respect them for a lot.

Curious to see how this'll turn out.
I do wish they'd figure out how to do high-res textures and AA though. It seems something they have problems with, somewhat bizarrely so, considering they actually seem to push their own custom engine fairly hard, with things like volumetric lighting, and pretty well-done post-effects.

I've not been a long time fan of the developer, but I really enjoyed their last game, Mars: War Logs. So yeah, I am certainly looking forward to this.

Kinda awkward trailer but the game does look interesting. Ill definitly keep an eye out for this one.

I think textures arent the only problem. The video is very jittery which means they have issues with framerate. Really interested in this game, lets how it turns out.

I'm sorry, but that's nonsense. Jittery video means there's a problem with the video, not the game. I'm pretty sure the game will run smooth as butter.

Rrrrrright. Another Mars Chronicles incoming from the looks of it.

Only looked at the stills but yeah...this doesn't look like something on current gen hardware. I hate to throw something like that out, because generally it's complete bullshit spouted by cretins...but this really looks like a nice looking game from last gen to me.

Other than that, i have no idea. What games have this studio made previously?

Well that was awkward...guy sounds like he's reading his script whilst on the toilet.

Game looks interesting. didnt notice any framerate issues in the vid

Watch the footage. Overall, I think definitely looks better graphically than say Fallout 4. It looks current gen for me, especially the modelling, which is pretty good.

Fallout 4 hardly looks stellar either.

Especially the modelling? Wat? Are you trying to tell me that you like the art style? I know my way around maya fairly well and i don't see anything that would make it stand out.

Watching the trailer didn't change my opinion much. It looks technically pretty bad, and i'm not that impressed with the design either. It looks really boring. Unfortunately.

I think the poly count of some of the models, particularly the environment seems pretty good. That is all. The art style seems fairly standard, but clearly an improvement on their previous efforts.

    Megido I have a hard time when a fat bomber rolls around on skated with a parasol cocktail in his hand, whilst doing a pseudo-philosophical monologue about life. It's neither funny or cool, it's just dumb. (4 Hours ago)
