Funcom's PC MMOG Age of Conan is one of the flagship titles for Vista and DirectX 10, and to present us with a view of what the new version of DirectX means for the game, DX10-specific footage has been released.
...what exactly is so great about DX10 again? :/
This looks like 'WOW', with sub-Oblivion character models....not exactly impressive.
I see no "HOLY CRAP" factor in this AT ALL.
Current stuff on the PC looks better than this.
...just "HOLY SH1T, THAT LOOKS LIKE CRAP!". :p
Well you gotta admit, the backgrounds and scenery looked great. Once the character models started appearing I quickly closed the video lol.
I thought the backgrounds and screnery were the worst part.....PS2 textures and low polys.
I've seen better DX9 games. You would think that developers would keep a very tight lid on their DX10 games until they show a level of detail at least on Par with the Xbox 360 and PS3. People shelling out over $2000 (4 times the price) are expecting Demos and early betas too trounce full blown console games. I've seen better on older consoles.
