That looks pretty sweet!
Gave me that SSX Tricky vibe...

Just one question whats with the grid effect in the NZ video? Is that actually in the game as a graphics gimmick or something or what?

I'm wagering in game gimmick to look edgy?

Can not wait. Nuff said.

Has to do something to make the track look interesting...

In all seriousness tho. It's a sonar, the event is a surival event by the looks of it, notice the thick fog? It's to let you know where the track ends and the 3000ft drop begins.

Dont like the holographic projection oponents. I guess that means tustling for possition is out too? Shame. Slapping your mate across the chops just before crossing the finish line was very satisfying, i guess EA thought differently.

I'm willing to accept the changes. Just give me split screen.

I wish the snow looked a little fluffier or more full as it all seems like ice, it would go a long way in helping to illeviate the games monochromatic look. Overall though I'm impressed.

Would require a lot of displacement mapping or POM. That's a gpu killer. Otherwise it's very hard to get natural, fluffy snow without some kind of new tech or particle system there.

For you maybe. This game has made a lot of shitty decisions. But for me, the lack of split screen is the deal breaker, the rest i could have lived with (yet still hated)

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (6 Hours ago)
