Hmm. Environments look decent. Character models not so great.

take into the consideration the scope of the game though and we should be in for a treat

Character detail looks very bad, face looks normal this time compared to Oblivion.
I do believe this is one of those games that has "screenshots is bad, looks bnetter in gameplay motion" scenario.

But, if they can make the gameplay fun and nail the combat and character customization, great.

I already know the music will deliver as usual (Jeremy Soule is awesome)

Gfx are not so impressive

Excited as hell for this! I can't get into fantasy games like DAO, or TW2(though I'm still trying), so I'm eagerly anticipating Skyrim as there's something about Bethesda's open-world design that so easily grips me.

This loos awesome to me....far far better than Oblivion
Commented on 2011-06-05 05:33:02
the oblivion models were pretty awful, and the game play was weak, so far things look to be a huge upgrade, so i'm excited. Hopefully with improved combat and improved leveling system, they'll take top dog again.

I can't get into DA O because its not a lone wolf gameplay.
I dont want to keep managing my own and the rest of the characters constantly, and babysit the AI.

I am glad games like this, Kingdom of Amaleur even Witcher (which I cant play) is about being solo lone wolf, great stuff.

Definitely man, by far.
I am just hoping the character customization for the faces is good and they actually add good beards this time (not like the exagerated Dragon Age lol).
A fantasy game without beards, silly lol

Characters are fine, Looks better than expected. Just hope the gameplay has improved, Oblivion was stiff as hell. Still managed to be awesome though so I'm looking forward

Trolls and mamoths?! Amazing screenshot.
Commented on 2011-06-05 10:32:47
Christ some people are picky.. looks ace
But is it true the leveling system is scaling like oblivion? if so thats enough to make me not play it.. the leveling system of oblivion was absolute shyt and ruined the game for me.

Yeah, me too.
Those pics look a bit sketchy, but at least faces look more realistic, wonder if the animations are better.

Looking forward to spending another 100hours+ on this over the course of a few months :D

GOTY right here for me.

Everyone should see the new scans; they show how awesome the game looks from a visual standpoint. Much better than the screens above.

The mammoths have Guile hairstyles!!
Commented on 2011-06-05 15:46:58
^Thanks for that Kroz. I'm going to have Guile's Theme playing in my head whenever I have to fight them.

Looks great to me. Nothing says bad about those graphics, imo. Especially considering the scale...

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
