MGS4: Guns of the Patriots is set in a war-torn future where huge conglomerates, including the Middle East and South America, fight for supremacy using armies of hand-picked mercenaries.
Game is looking bonkers
The 2 screenshots with the P90 are just AMAZING... (headshot lol) The OCTOCAMO looks incredible in the screenshot where snake is getting rape by a Frog... MGS4 FTW...
...for the slight clipping problem in the 4th image. Not sure who the character is but his foot is passing right through the step. Other than that - when this comes out I'll be saying GTA what???
From another chapter of mgs4 so all detractors shut up about the look of the game.
No you don't, you really don't want this game spoiled for you
i know it will look and play (since i played the beta) great. f*ck the haters. don't let them ruin it for you.
What about about the shadow moses playable flashback, the snow particles and threes. Let me guess... to white (haters lol)
Why can't Solid Snake do those matrix style jumps like in the screenshot. Just stealthily jump past all the enemies I guess that would be too easy... but fun =D Or can we play the game as the Ninja the one that appears to get killed by the vampire in one of the MGS clips, the vampire who I remember very distinctively killing in MGS 2.
you mean the vampire named Vamp?
Yes 'Vamp' atleast i think it was, Please don't tell me there is more then one vampire character (I never played MGS 3 but lol)
mgs 3 was prequel and there was no vamp in mgs2, we sniped vamp(he was holding a girl hostage) and he fell into the ocean who's to say he didn't survive that,
The "Ninja" that you were talking about was Raiden just in case you didn't know.
you mean Otacons' sister?
this game keeps getting better and better every time i see new screens
I hope this time around they give a free flowing camera view like how splinter cell is
They've had that since MGS3 subsistence. Its even in portable ops. No free cam was my biggest beef with MGS2 especially since i played it after i played splinter cell. It was hard to go back to lame camera mode. Still haven't beaten 2 because of this but i will get around to it at some point
You absolutely MUST play MGS2 to the end before 4 comes out; be sure to look up theories as to what happened afterwards though because it gets reeeeally confusing towards the end. o_O
This game is going to suck ass. I bet it averages 7.5 /end sarcasm I'm buying it
strange but kick ass comment
again this game looks very good...but some of the textures definitely could use some work....
You say "some textures could use some work", well if you ask me, the whole Grand Theft Auto 4 game needs a total make over, and every texture in the game needs some work. Plus, the screenshots that are shown over the computer don't look as good as the real game running on PS3 hardware displayed on a HDTV. The screenshots can definanlty give you an idea for what the game will look like, but the final product running on actual hardware looks better.
The game is essentially in polishing phase. Knowing kojima as a perfectionist, it will all probably get cleaned up. I just can't wait for this game and i hope they don't show anything else even if its to calm the silly haters
looks sweet, the characer models are awesome, and the amount of stuff going on, feels like a war
It looks great! Unfortunately, the detractors will never agree...and they have a tiny sliver of truth to their claims. The game did get downgraded (graphically) from the original TGS05 trailer, unfortunately. Not in all ways of course, but certain ones. The lighting and the extreme facial and hair detail on Snake...Interstingly, his 'stash actually improved! Here is the graphical sacrifice: http://www.neogaf.com/forum... just about 3/4 down the page. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... Those that wont click the link, I attached a couple. Anyhow, here is the truth: Because Kojima allowed these somewhat minor downgrades, the gameplay itself actually is not held back...remember gameplay before graphics people!
What else can I say, MGS4 looks so clear and crisp in those screenshots. I'm sure that MGS4 will push the PS3's potential even more further as well. Hideo Kojima is just a genious and he'll definanlty go down in gaming history as one of the greatest game producers/directors ever.
Aside Miyamoto and P. Molineux (/sarcasm)???
the color palette of this game makes me want to barf. green green and more green.
look at the latest Japanese trailer of the game, the one that ends with snake over the graveyard with a gun which he turns on himself. note the grave yard seen and the extra detail in the faces and the textures, this is most likely the most polished up version of this game. I personally love the dark gritty feel of the game, also the first stage is a concrete jungle set in the mid-east during a time of war, its not suppose to have rainbows, and magical green leprechauns running around fighting purple dinosaur who throw glowing blue bombs all over the place like some other games we know. lol
Textures look fine to me: it's the lighting that could do with some work... but it's minor.
well, solid snake and the weapons look nice but whats with the rest? Uncharted uses more polygons than MGS4.. 2 times better textures than MGS4.. if you have seen both games you will agree with me. MGS4 would be THE GAME for THE PS3 in 2007.. in 2008 there are much better games.. i dont mean gameplay know, you remember, in halo3 also nobody was interested in gameplay... i just mean the graphics. 3 years for development, 50 GB, 60% = movie and 8 hours single player thats sad. Also Kojima himself stated that hes disappointed with the graphics. In terms of graphics and physics i think GoW2 will own MGS4.
The number of polygons is fine. It's the lighting that's to blame. It just seems that there's not much contrast: and I know they're going for a more realistic look unlike gears, but as the lighting doesn't look that complex (or real), it makes it look a bit bland. Still, it's the story, and gameplay, and sheer epicness of the game that will make it great.
So people think GTA4s graphics are fine but MGS4 graphics which are vastly more detailed, crisp and clear is not? You dumb or something. Just Snake's moustache alone contains more polygons than all the characters of GTA4 put together. Dont use double standards. If GTA4 is fine, MGS4 is art.
8 hrs gameplay in MGS4? You must be out of your fukcing mind. And if short gameplay bothers you...then you really shouldn't be raving about Gears of War. Also, I'd appreciate it if you link me to the statement that MGS4 is 60% 'movie'. I'd love to read it. Thanks in advance =]
Eight hours huh? I'm sorry, but it's been said already that the game is MORE than eight hours. Get yo' damn facts straight.
Significant to what it once was: Old: http://ps3media.ign.com/ps3... New: http://www.worthplaying.com...
this will b the best game ever to come out till final fantasy 13 versus and 13
This games getting me interested in the MGS series. Never played the games before so am going to wait for MGS1 to hopefully release on psstore before this gets released so i can understand the story fully
Looks ok. Character models look nice. But not very impressed with other textures, look very low. Has this team ever heard of texture streaming.
