GC: "We are getting enough clues on what Kojima is planning as we reach closer to GDC where he will talk about the Fox Engine."
man....all questions will be answered. i don't want to even bother making assumptions, but I do know Kojima has been teasing us with photo realism before.
JM being CG is the most absurd thing I have heard today. Some people need to get their eyes checked
Agreed, It's ridiculous. We don't even have the technology right now to make a person look that realistic. I bet the people who believe that theory still believe in Santa Claus.
Yes, let's waste the world premier of a lifelike CGI character on Spike TV.
@Turqoisekiller Fast forward to the 8 min mark http://www.youtube.com/watc... The tech is there
@cyguration Yeah, but even that doesn't look like real life, it looks super good, I'll give you that, but if you think we are at the point of ultra-realistic graphics you are dead wrong.
A better video to photorealism ..It would be fantastic to see if Kojima has indeed used some orientation of this tech in his engine http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I am computer-generated.
@cyguration That still looks fake though, not on the level of realism that this 'allegedly' CG Joakim Mogren is.
I still don't think this is CGI, but that picture is still pretty funny.
True I watch the interview and I saw little bits of the guy's hair sticking thought the wrap. If it's CG, it's impressive!
If it is CG, it is better than Avatar, because the skin slides on top of the bone structures. It is not CG, and the fact we are even discussing it somehow befuddles me.
@hesido: the fact that people are disagreeing with you indicating that they believe it's CG is aneurism inducing.
Another GAF original. The speculation blows the mind like a hotair balloon. I need a break from that place... Nah.
Just no, its not CG, there is no compelling evidence. The major thing to look at is eye's, CG will always make eyes to glossy, and you just know when someone is real, which he was, a real person
I bet my account on the mummy being computer GFX.
Oh myyy ... This GDC could blow minds!
Obviously Joakim was a real person. He was just wearing bandages as an obvious reference to the guy from the phantom pain.
people were actually thinking this guy was CG?
Yeah, can you believe we are even discussing it?
I can't understand the agree / disagree disparity here.
It's the gullible minds of the internet. Sad really.
The basement dwellers have officially lost touch with reality and what an actual person looks like. It's sad.
It's worse: People is CONVINCED he's CG.
For Joakim, to be wearing a head wrap. It would be cheap and cheesy stunt while trying to debut something for next generation on what suppose to be a flagship game from an elite studio. There has been many reference in the main stream media about facial technology getting better. Nvidia made news with there: Nvidia Face Works Tech Demo; Renders Realistic Human FacesDemo. Link: http://youtu.be/CvaGd4KqlvQ It almost makes sense for Hideo Kojima to go thru this elaborate stunt to showcase his facial technology to at least one up Nvidia recent announcement. But we will see come GDC...I believe it's CGI.
I've never anticipated a GDC so much before.
Kojima san and Battlefield 4 :) All shall be revealed at GDC!
Joakim Mogren is an anagram of Joker M Gamin or if you like. Gamin joker M. Or better yet Mr. Gamin Joke
Sorry, missed the second O His full name is Joakim N. Mogren Anagram. Mr. No Joke Gamin
J O A K I M K O J I M A You sir, have been trolled.
N4G gets article with headline based on crazy 4Chan discussion. Almost as bad as the 4Chan discussion on PS4 specs that said it will have 16GB XDR ram and 16PPEs and 128 SPUs and two Kepler GPUs in SLI... In other words, the man isnt CG !
For the love of God, use some logic people... Why would it be CGI? You've seen the Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain videos right, you've actually seen how the models done with FOX Engine looked... right? So, again, why would that be CGI if we ALREADY know what FOX engine looks like, and what it's capable and not capable of? The truth is, for such an IMPRESSIVELY detailed facial simulation, you'd need something like a VOLTA series of Nvidia's next-gen GPU's... which are due out in friggin' 2016. Hoping is one thing but don't throw your logic out of window when you do that.
To be fair GZ trailer was supposed to have been running on specs similar to the ps3.
