I hope the combat is much more fun this time and polished this time, only thing I am worried about.
Along with character customization (Oblivion sucked in both of those departments).

Anyways, looking forward to see much more...videos :)

if ES5 looks this good i cant wait to see a fallout game running/using this game engine i just hope the next fallout game actually has a map twice the size of fallout 3's map, (yes ive gone slightly off topic) not a third smaller like what fallout new vegas did, ES5 just looks stunning.

Minor gripe ahead: All i want is nice animations, the previous games while being a metric ton of fun, had the stiffest animations. Seriously detracts from the experience.

looks good, now bring it on. I subscribe the comments about the animations. Oblivion's and Fallout's were dreadful. Not only the 3rd person view, but also the first person camera was terrible. Felt like we were sliding on ice all the time. Hey bethesda, look at BFBC or Crysis (or Mirror's edge but that's asking too much) for a excellent first person camera.

the footage of it they showed was from the 360 build and it looked just as good as the screens..if not better in motion. So i wouldnt worry too much. And really wouldnt be surprised if those screens were from the same 360 version.

Shame you dont get to fly a dragon in it. Theres supposed to be some power from eating their souls though. It would be really awesome if you were draged along in the air by one if riding in a traditional sense is out

Looks awful, they should have come a longer way in graphics by now. Does not look like that much of an upgrade since oblivion, except the faces on the characters and the textures a bit. Oblivion looked amazing for its time, but this game looks awful for its time.

I hope the world is entirely hand crafted this time.. Oblivion's world bored me to death, because there simply were almost no characteristic points in the landscape, everywhere it looked the same to me.

360 footage without even the slightest hint of aliasing ? don't kid yourself

They are using Havoc for the animations this time (Yes Havoc) I hope there's a big improvement.

Look at the 2nd pic for example, you can see some aliasing on, among other things, his hand and weapon. Not much though and it's hard to spot in the other screens but that's the point of anti-aliasing, lol!

Great!But any info about PS3 version? I have both consoles but I hate X360 because of noise and controller.

This looks little better than average. I agree that arm pic looks bad though. PC version should be better.

Oblivion looked good indeed, but it performed like shit.

Wait for videos and hope it to be more optimized...

I dunno.. these screens are definitely not terribly impressive. It's still one of my most anticipated games of 2011 anyway.

with x2 or x4 AA (which considering the visual quality of the game seems impossible to achive on 360/PS3) the aliasing isn't nearly as hard to spot as in these pictures, i.e. they are definitely not direct console screenshots

I'm certainly not going to set myself up for disappointment, but if you don't mind that then go ahead.

Morphological anti-aliasing is now part of the PS3's libraries, and has been for some time now. It's already been used in several games, such as God of War 3, Little Big Planet 2, Dragon Age 2, and Killzone 3. It gives something akin to 16x FSAA.

It's possible on the 360 too but with a significant GPU cost, whereas on the PS3's it's handled on an SPU and so basically free.

    jmd749 @KORNdog: I actually like the design, it lends for good ventilation and aesthetically speaking it's in the shape of the Roman numeral for 5, a "V". :P (3 Hours ago)

    KORNdog I would honestly be surprised if both the next Xbox and ps5 don't just look like simple black plastic boxes. (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I can't imagine Sony coming along 10 years too late and adopting that styling when it's clearly not what is considered good design anymore. (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I just look at Sony's consumer design and it doesn't fit at all. Electronics are about clean lines and boxy shapes. Even in the PC space that fuck ugly vent covered alien ware design has fizzled out. (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @MrWhite: for the same reason they stuck a big metal.faceplate to the PS4 dev kit? I mean. They could have just made that a plastic box too. (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite It looks like a big dirty wifi router of some sort. Which makes sense if you think about where gaming is going. Especially if they want to make the PSVR2 wireless. (1 Day ago)
