Fresh off the San Diego Comic Con floor, new cinematic images have been released from Halo 2: Anniversary, showing off the wonderfully remastered visuals of the game.
Damn those CGI look so real life:)
Yeah not too shabby.
screenshots also look good wouldn't say real life but still very good. http://n4g.com/news/1557292...
Well the cinematics are being done by Blur Studio, they make some of the very best video game CGI cutscenes and trailers around. http://vz3.blur.com/work
Damn. Those cut scenes are gonna be sexy! haha
OMG ... can't wait
Don't care bout gameplay after seeing that CGI!
The CGI is pretty, that's a given. However, to throw away playability would be irresponsible and ignorant my friend. As we have seen time and time again, A good looking game can still suck hard. Be careful and cautious with the new Halo games. I have preordered already, but I am will be disappointed if the game doesn't play the same if not better, regardless of how pretty it looks.
I hate when cutscenes are not in-game. Preorder cancelled. This feels like a downgrade to me.
You never had intentions on buying this game to begin with nice trolling though
He needs some ice for that burn.
If the gameitself is awesome, does it matter?, whether they are ingame or cgi cutscenes you are not playing either, just watching like a movie.
Completely true that I never preordered it in the first place, but I was actually interested in seeing what they did with the cutscenes until I learned they were CG now. I just hate it when games don't use the in-game assets for cutscenes. It creates an unnecessary gap between gameplay and story segments IMO. I think it makes a game more immersive if it renders the cutscenes using the game-engine directly and not through a "press play" video file.
Preorder cancelled cos the cutscenes aint ingame? Cgi cutscenes were very popular during the ps1, ps2 days and till this day some companies would rather go cgi instead of ingame. With cgi its actually alot easier for the artists to present an exact atmosphere unlike what can be done inengine. The animation and effects can also be taken to a whole new level with cgi..but since you'd rather cancel your preorder i'm guessing during the days of the ps2 and xbx you never played final fantasy, onimusha, resident evil 2 and 3, ninja gaiden...etc Yeah right.
Man those where are some great games I loved onimusha and I still play ninja gaiden 1&2
But they have already shown screen shots of the gameplay and it is 100 times better looking and more real than the originals. What does it matter if the CGI cutscenes aren't in engine? They have already shown that the in engine gameplay is beautiful. Now they are just showing off their CGI talents. They are completely unrelated topics and to cancel a preorder based on this argument is shallow and petty.
In other words, you hate it when there are good visuals?
Indeed, if the visuals are not rendered directly by the console it's not impressive. It's kinda like how I hate watching CG trailers. I know this is different, but the original Halo 2 had some great in-engine cutscenes, so I would've prefered if the same went for H2 Anniversary, like with H:CE Anniversary. And especially if in-game is 60fps and cutscenes are 30fps. That bugged the shit out of me when I played Mass Effect 3 on PC.
Oh good. Now leave please
I think this is just hint of how good Halo 5 is going to look.
I was just thinking about that too. Halo5 is going to be in a class of its own. Can't wait to see that game in motion. The score,the new vehicles, the weapons, new enemy types(hopefully it won't just be the convenant and promitheans),the world, the story line& the multiplayer...Halo 5 will be awesome.
I very small hint. I definitely wouldn't hype myself to thinking graphics will be that good this generation. I'd say Halo 5 may look slightly better than Destiny.
This is what you call REMASTERED
That Arbiter image is impressive.
to bad that isn't realtime, I would it a lot of crow if were realtime.
Halo 2 online again is worth the money and then some,anyone want to super bounce?
Blur Studios have always made some crazy awesome CGI.
The cost of this collection is crazy good especially when they are putting this much effort into it, 4 great games and all the additional stuff for the price of one game is insane. I am sure they would have got quite a few sales if they had released this on its own at full price, good to see them thinking beyond just a quick money grab unlike some others.
Imagine the lakes of Delta Halo. I'm going to climb that mountain, guys. I'm going to climb it.
I hope gameplay is close to this...If they could Gears to that level...oh boy!
Speaking of gears wtf happened to that franchise?? Come on MS give me my dose of gears.
Ron has it now hope they leave everthing from GOWJ out except Overrun. It was cool it just had Judgement's stink on it.
Really hope this game moves Xbox one units! Halo rocks my socks.... My favourite franchise of all time :)
