FDJV: Video part 1 (no sound), water is near the end.
I think its more dynamic than uncharted, but Uncharted's looked more real graphic wise. hmm.
The ripples looks really good and There is also a lot of detail underwater, which is missed in most games. Also, I am glad that they made a new life system and the life isn't depended on health rations.
No, uncharted is still the most realistic water by far. Do some research about how the water actually animates in Uncharted...there's a lot to it. And, I didn't really see any real-time world or effect reflections in the water in R2. And I didn't see hale's gloves getting wet from the water either.
What I like about your comments is that they put a PS3 axclusive versus a PS3 exclusive. We got an awesome machine!! only on PS3!
But it's ok, PS3's getting there. I've yet to see rain effects better than GeoW.
i didn't know you can swim in R2 :)
Resistance 2 is undoubtely the best looking shooter on consoles for 2008 It is definitely best shooter of 2008
copied gaylo with the water idea and the invisible enemies(which suk). graphics are nice but they're copying waaay to much. also game looks really boring. many people with the beta agree with me. the water graphics BTW were not that good honestly wats so nice about them? there is practicly no ripples and when u go under it just changes color. and when his head went in and out of the water really fast u can see a bright blue line in between. great but when u run next to leafs they don't bend like in uncharted or I HATE TO SAY IT gaylo. the game online mode better not be like the BORE FEST in the first.
Copy from halo. lol f*ckin X-troll go kiss my ass. you fail at trolling and you fail at everything If you said the invisibility thing was copied from the predator movie ill have to agree but you are just stupid.
LOL, this game is CLEARLY trying too hard to be Halo. pooooooooor turdstation COPY CATS.
Halo steal concepts from Resistance and the xbot kiddies think Resistance want to be like Halo, people its LOL time. Resistance 2 water is so realistic, it splashes and moves in your direction. NOTHING like the fake water found in Halo.
That water was MIND-BLOWING! WOW! *drool*
but I think Naughty Dog helps them to simulate water..(because it looks alittle similar) anyway it looks absolutely gorgeous ,all visuals improved over early E3 show ,to name a few : GORE effects Dynamic rang textures!!!! water effects!! details on design .. etc the only thing resistance needs is : motion blur, more depth of field
They just need to bring it out, as in NOW......
motion blur man it looks mad not sure about depth of field though?
There is depth of field. Amongst alot of other fx. Looks very nice indeed.
talking about water that is some what the best i have seen uncharted is par Makes me think what uncharted 2 is going to look like will it be beyond all the current ps3 and pc games we have seen so far or will they use the same engine
just compare resistance 2 and 1 !!! .. ND staff are really genius .. Uncharted had one of the best visuals on all consoles (complex environment with soft shadows all around the world,ultra high res textures,amazing animations,BEST water effect in console gaming...etc ) so their next gen title for PS3 will be uberfantastic in term of visuals.. :D
Colours? In a shooter? Insomniac are crazy yo! ;)
gotta love the glove and how it looks, im tired of seeing hands with bland textures and ugly models that really distract me.
Insomniac taking care of all aspects of details.
what I hate most about FPS, well besides 95% of all of them in general, is that the gun is set to low. Watch that video and play other FPS and you'll know what I mean. Stand next to common objects and then mathmatically calculate the actual height of your character. You are almost always no more than 5ft tall. The scale is always off in a FPS. ALWAYs! Gauge the height next to the stump in the ground about halfway through the video here. You'll see what I mean. The guns need to be placed much higher in order to replicate actual human height. Anyways, the game looks killer in this video, none the less. The graphics have absolutley been upped a great deal.
"Anyways, the game looks killer in this video, none the less. The graphics have absolutely been upped a great deal." Best thing you've said all week :)
Is there a average size for Redwood tree stumps? Use the Truck for scale. and watch your point get dissolved. They are really throwing on the polish though. I'm happy to see the Killzone2 esque object motion blur. It really makes this gen of PS3's gaming look that much better.
a human SEAL or what have you does not approach any situation with a large gun standing upright as they infiltrate a compound you don't walk upright with a gun in the middle of the battlefield like you are strolling through a mall lower to the ground move fast and accurately
Blade, I said "almost always" I said the scale is always off in FPS and they are. One second you will be the right proportion and the next you'll be off. That is what I am talking about. Check when he gets out of the water, there is little difference when he gets up onto the land. This isn't a fault of just this game, either. I think the game looks incredible. Probably the best ooking FPS I've seen to date. Well, Crysis on my PC trumps it but no other FPS has. Even still, Crysis had a scale problem too. All FPs have this problem, man. I feel they do anyways. Maybe it's just me, I dunno but I feel the gun and hands are way too low in a FPS.
who put graphics in my resistance? single player looks great!
Looks good but not great
It looks better...it's bigger....and it's way more immersive.....and it offers a lot more replayability and community features than Gears 2 ever could........plus...Gears 2 looks pretty....but it also looks pretty boring...
not perfect. but near it.
So to you it looks good but not great and i suppose you think halo 3 looks better or even GOW2?Besides this was off someones cam... R2 graphics are perfect!
But seriously, this looks amazing!
Was in Lair. Plug in COD4 on the first mission on the ship and compare it to the water in Lair. The movement of the water looks very real.
Dude Resistance 2 look beautiful. Gear of War 2??? What is that? Never heard of it, sounds like something you catch while being in Tijuana.
Why do devs keep putting a forest/jungle setting in games. They always look absolutely rubbish. The only game to EVER get them looking good was crysis. This game is a disgrace to the PS3. When Killzone is looking as good as anything out there, this looks like its from the original xbox.
I can tell that you've never played Uncharted. Let alone looked at a screenshot or gameplay video.
take a look at resistance 1. That was a launch game & it was a technical marvel & had better graphics than the long awaited halo 3. pahalease!
I have to say the water looks amazing but so does uncharted and MGS4. The thing i loved about uncharted however is how he's clothes get wet when he dives into the water.
If I may nitpick: 1. Would love to see swaying/moving foliage 2. Bobbing in and out of the water doesn't appear realistic to me without some sort of blurring/fogging/splashing/bub bling effect (to simulate how our eyes need to adjust to and from aquatic environment in real life.) Otherwise, the reflection and movement of the water surface looks just stunning...I couldn't really say off hand that Uncharted's IS better; would have to see them side-by-side, as they both look great by recollection alone. I'm guessing that this video is of a beta version that's still missing some good ol' Insomniac spit & polish. (C'mon, November 4th!!!)
I would think by now most if not all the polish is in there and they are optimizing net code.
You're right, especially so close to launch. I was referring specifically to this video, as it's not clear whether it's recent, or of a former build. Either way, I was just splitting hairs. The game overall looks rock-solid to have me convinced that I'm going to be a very, very exhausted, sleep-deprived boy on the morning of November 5th. (BTW: Long time no see; nice to see you're still kicking around!)
Actually if you look at some of the vids from gametrailers.com about the 4 part walkthrough you will see swaying foliage from the trees, I looked for that too and found it, so it is there
why cant they make it look as if water is dripping from the gun or the person when he emerges from it? That would add just a little more touch of realism to it. It looks really good as you move through it. Something else as just a little touch would be disturbed sediments in the water as you move. Like when you walk through a river you are disturbing the bottom with each step and the dirt gets swished around. These may seem like nitpicks but dont you think it would really be cool to see in this game. It would only go to show that the devs have thought of even the tiniest detail.
The game looks better than this in the other videos we've seen lately.
LMFAO. FarCry 2, a crossplatform turd, looks 10 times better than this BS3 exclusive! LOOOL!!!!!! BUT BUT BUT TEH CELL!!!! POOOR DROIDS!!!!!
Seriously, were you dropped at birth or something?
So what are you going to say when the PS3 version of FarCry 2 looks better than the Xbox version? Owned.. god you're annoying
Far cry 2 doesn't have 60 player MP. Far cry 2 doesn't have 2 different campaigns Far cry 2 doesn't have 8 player co op Obviously they could focus more on the graphics aspect. Dumb son of a b!tch.I honestly hope you die of cancer.
He's just upset that Xbox 360 doesn't have the graphics crown anymore. It's not like he didnt' know this was going to happen, it was evident from the start, the more they figure out the PS3 more it is going to pull ahead of the Xbox 360.
Another game where objects can affect the water, not the other way around. I mean, look at Crysis, if you explode a barrel in water, the water doesn`t move when the barrel explodes. It`s just a simple particle and texture. With games like Halo 3, Kameo, Uncharted, and now Resistance 2, things can affect the way the water moves. I don`t see how people say that Bioshock (console versions) and Crysis have the best water though, because while they have the appearance of realistic water, there`s no `substance` behind them; they are not affected by object that go in them.
Looking great so far(haven't)seen the whole vid yet. Those Chameleon monsters look awesome and I'm loving the motion blur.
SFDP but fabulous water for an fps. Someone said that there weren't many reflections on the water but I say that's because he's supposed to be in a murky river. Either way, it looks fantastic.
If the object behind the water body is a big ROCK, then right where the water meets the ROCK, it shouldn't look like the water is reflecting a bunch of light. I realize that to get realistic water, it takes way too many calculations, but when you guys are gushing over how awesome this is, it makes me think you just came from playing a N64. Half life 2 had better water effects than this. Anyway, why do certain people only laud ps3 only games? What is it with you guys? I feel sorry for ya. You best be getting Bioshock if you like water effects. On a side note about this footage we've just seen. I do like it when they're cruising through the woods and the camera does the focus in/out. It's a neat effect...although not sure what the point is in this particular situation. Regardless, I will be buying this game. R1 was a blast to play. I hope this one is as fun. This video looked really boring, but I have hope that the game is still fun.
Are you serious? Damn even Halo 3's water is better than this.... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Check out 2:11
Much like the Unreal engine which doesn't perform wakes either in the game build of Gears2. Any engine can use a texture to displace geometry. But what you see in r2 is an actual wake being generated and expanding away to the edges of the water surface. Not just an image animating to distort the water. Play Crysis and swim in the water to see what a wake is, then watch the r2 video. Halo doesn't make wakes or simulate water. Sorry. It looks great, but its not a complex setup like the one we are seeing in R2's build. Self owned once again.
LMFAO!!!! You think the casual gamer would even care what you said? Halo's water effects look just as real and better than most games. Definitely better than R2. LMAO! That was to rich. Thanks buddy! Bubbles for the laugh.
Do you? I think you are the only one concerned with Halo3, because you don't have anything else to play. The "casual" gamer isn't what the video or the technology is for either. Thats why we are all here discussing it. You on the other hand, just come in to let us know that Alan Wake is still never coming out, and that you've beat halo for the 9900909th time. Or are you too busy playing Too Human to care? Man I bet you wish it was 07 all over again, at least you'd have more than 2 releases to look forward to for the rest of your consoles life. Maybe you could remix a Halo3 teaser video? Pretend that Pure and Baja are good games, and exclusive to the 360? Pretend you are looking forward to Banjo? And I notice when you get in a corner, you "lol" your way out of it.
@26.2 This is a gaming website, and you're arguing that casual fans won't see the difference. Pro tip: we're not casual fans. Think of a better argument (I know it's tough, but you can do it!)
This water effects looks primitive as hell, I would be impressed if this kind of "dynamic" water effects came out on launch date, but its 2008 now! The best water effects on the console still belong to Uncharted, and the best water effects in a shooter is split between Crysis: Warhead and Stalker: Clear Sky. In Clear Sky water actually flow around and pools into objects in a realistic manner. Wake me up when some other game does that.
hey guys is it true that resistance 2 will be getting a 720p native resolution
