Stranger's wrath's enhanced graphics

Stranger's wrath's enhanced graphics

While the PC finally got the Oddworld Box, for the time being, it does not feature all the graphical improvements that are promised with the PS3 version of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD. Here are two images showing the difference between the 2005 game and its HD remake.

can't wait for this. this was by FAR my fave original xbox game. to see it getting a REAL up-res (not that i dont like the sly collection or GOW collection) is seriously awesome.

i just hope it gets the recognition it deserves, becasue it sure as hell didnt on the xbox.

some more images here

it actually is, or at least, it SHOULD, the only thing stopping the developers are MS's limitations on XBLA file sizes (it's currently 100MB over the 2 gig limit)

Didn't know this was coming but that's really good news. I hope more people pick it up then the original. Loved that game. For me it felt like two games in one. After the plottwist the whole game felt different somehow. I just hope Oddworld Inhabitants are making a new game. Heard something like that some time ago

Actually, that statement about the size is actually referring to the amount of space the Xbox version took. So the base Xbox game is ~ 2.1 GB. Of course the remastered and enhanced version will take up more space.

What you doing in here there aint no half arsed naked women..

Anyway, this game was the GotY for me when it come out, it raped Halo 2 single player
damn cant wait for this, fucking great game :D

And yeah it got fuck all recognition on the xbox due to if i recall MS dropping them after munch did not sell more than 64million copies in 3 days, EA picked it up, but refused to foot the marketing bill when the dev refused to port it to PS2... i fucking hate MS just cause a game does not break records they abandon it (voodoo vince, brute force? i loved these games) and i hate EA for been such ...well yeah.

they where apparently going to return, but no news of yet (although when they closed doors i heard they where going to work on CGi movies, but that never happened so who knows). just add water ARE working on multiple oddworld projects tho. so expect another HD remastered game soon after this one. maybe munch's oddysee? i'm hoping for the first 2 abe-centric games getting full blown updates tho. even though the game still looks pretty nice now thanks to the pre-rendered sprites and BG's.

I would be totally content if they just ported the first two games to XBLA. I played the first one maybe a year ago and it still looked pretty sweet. Maybe I'd even be disappointed if they gave it a graphic update cause the nostalgia would be gone.

I remember Lorne Lannings was pretty pissed of at EA and said they woudl concentrate on making CGI movies, but I'm actually glad they didn't.

Sadly I could find no news on a new title other then a vague suggestion of a new game.

God I can still hear those crows or whatever they were crying in the background of Abe's Odyssee

the pc version is TERRIBLE...little hope of this being any good

Bought the very very first Oddworld - Abe's Oddysee - a few months ago from Steam for like £4. Still as awesome as ever.

different version. PC port of the xbox game = shit.

the updated console to console port should be fine.

This really grinds my gears too. So many cool games on the xbox that MS fronted, and now they've ditched them all; Apart from the billion wing wang sellers of course..

Like Mechassault and Crimson Skies. Both sooooooooooo good, ugh. I miss Mechassault
Commented on 2010-12-24 02:52:35
I hope MS make an exception for this game. I want it so bad, I love the Oddworld series.
Commented on 2010-12-24 11:51:25
This game blew my mind with having both FPS and third-person stuff. Most creative twist on the FPS weapons and abilities.

Still haven't finished the game, was stuck on that shotgun boss who took over the Apple Farm.

Man, I played Oddworld : Abe's odyssey a looong time ago on original xbox, and loved it.

Didn't even know there was another one..
Commented on 2010-12-24 19:21:59
Got the pc version yesterday and it's as awsome as i remember (the one game i wanted and only game i'd of bought on the xbox originals service back when it was being updated) shame they cocked up the pc version though but it's playable. Fantastic game and one my all time faves.
Commented on 2010-12-25 07:09:06
Yeah, from the steam threads it looks like there are a lot of problems, on top of not having the talked about hi-def assets.

when it gets straightened out I'll purchase it.
Commented on 2010-12-25 12:11:22
well that really is a good example of poly count overkill, the second model has almost 5 times the modeling detail and at first glace it look almost the same.

Look at the feet lol there almost identical, but to be fair, this game does not need visuals, it does not even need upgrading :(other than geting the money they deserved)

Don't see any overkill in any of these models. 20k tris for a main character is not that bad in any way and the other things are still fairly low-poly. As for the CG model, it needs to hold up to much closer scrutiny than the in-game model for closeups and the likes so i don't see how 500k tris is a problem there either.

The models just look smoother and more detailed, and it's not like the 360/PS3 can't handle those amounts of polygons so there really isn't a problem at all. The silhouette of the models are greatly increased and they look better for it. But sure, the high res textures and normal maps add the most of what you directly notice.

    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (17 minutes ago)
