in game shots of the newly announced ps3 exclusive Quantum Theory.
YOU STAY IN THAT FORUM!
More like HAHAHAHAHA CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE THEY ARE RELEASING THIS JUNK!! This game looks absolute garbage at the moment and unless something changes it's going to flop hard.
relax, we dont even know what the game is about, we havent even seen real gameplay yet. Lets judge after Tecmo shows the goods. I'm still surprised though they are making a PS3 game that's exclusive for the console for now.
It is SO obvious that this is a Japanese game company some of whose members enjoyed playing gears of war and then said "we can make that it'll sell really well" - but they don't have any experience with the genre. There isn't really any more room for shooters as it is, and the only ones that get noticed are the sequels and games with great graphics. They have put this game so close to gears in terms of art direction and gameplay that gears makes it look hopeless.
This looks BAD to you.
You could say that. Maybe it is because I have done some 3D modelling, or maybe it's because I notice flaws in graphics before I notice the detail, or maybe it's just because I really don't like the art direction, but this game looks technically very poor. Look at the lack of detail in the environment. Look at the poor quality textures. Look at the terrible particle effects. Look at the low-poly characters. Look at the bland, bland floor. There's something that looks very bad about these images as well, I can't quite put my finger on it. Might be the complete lack of any anti-aliasing, might be the simplistic shader effects, might be the lack of polish or it might be a combination of all the above factors. If you compare this game to any graphical powerhouse on 360 or PS3 it looks like a last-gen game.
Looks like Gears of War, for Queers.
Hey Thor, nice to see someone else who is a fellow artist. Do you prefer Maya or Max? Also, had to ask... do you find it funny people compare graphics all the time in such laymans terms, without ever taking time to discuss the pros and cons of each element? Such as art direction, character design, lighting, etc. All I ever hear is "ZOMG look at teh texturs!"
But right now I'm branding this game Gears of War meets Final Fantasy X. If it delivers I think I have a new favorite game.
wow thor, you think being such a modern day michaelangelo you would have realised we don't even know how long this has been in developement, and they probably haven't even began to think about the kind of polishing you're talking about because they probably started work on it four-five months before NG2 went gold
Lol I use Blender - free software FTW. No seriously Blender is great software - when I first started using it to now you can see a VAST improvement and the number of features added (things like SSS and fluid dynamics, Softbody dynamics, strands for rendering hair and fur, it didn't even have a built in raytracer when I used it first) is amazing. And yeah I do find it funny that people compare graphics in very simple terms and throwing in a technical term just to try to back up their argument. People seem to overlook the most technically impressive games. For instance, I think that Wipeout HD has some of the best graphics ever seen on a console. It runs at 1080p/60FPS, there are hardly any jaggies, the whole thing is incredibly polished, the art style is fantastic and the particle effects are so well designed I think they beat crysis's. The graphics of that game couldn't really be any better - you can say there's not many ships on-screen but for the gameplay to remain the same the graphics can't be improved much more. Now take a game like uncharted - now there are a couple of things wrong with that game graphically - the aliasing is terrible, the foliage looks weak up-close, the environment looks pretty but it's very linear and the areas are actually quite small, and the shaders seem quite basic (though might be an art style thing). But everyone seems to hail Uncharted as having some of the best graphics on consoles, and technically I don't think it does.
I'm sorry, and WHO again was the first gears for?...dripping with machismo and steroid pumped testosterone? (oh....and "brotherly love")
I hate Gears, FPS or Third person shooters. But I think the main character in Gears really looks manly and cool. This one just looks... gay, from what I've seen. That's just my opinion though.
This is probably a PS3 exclusive just because Tecmo could not get permisson to bring such a similiar game like Gears for the 360. Microsoft would never allow that. When this game releases it will aleast match the visuals of Gears 2. Granted there is less objects in this game but they are nicely done with not that many jaggies.
I hear ya. I'd love actual discussions on the pros and cons of game visuals instead of "MGS4 looks better than Gears." How? Why? There is so, so so much more to a game than just texture fidelity. Howabout the fact that Gears 2 looks to have distance fog and simple geometry? Or the fact that Uncharted has screen tearing and aliasing? There's more to it than just "graphics" and that's why I laugh my ass off when people who have no clue what they are talking about start arguing which looks better.
Looks like the next "Army of Two" in attempting to recreate what Gears has perfected but failing in the end.
What's the matter? Afraid that this game might be a contender for Gears of War? :D
the first comment I saw was the one from socomnick. retarded nick and comment BTW, but then i saw the screens and my thinking it's exactly the same. graphics = meh. ;-0
IMO it looks awesome.
I can understand if you like the art style, that's personal preference. (I hate the art style of this game but hey). But you cannot possibly say that this game is technically impressive from a graphical standpoint. It is lightyears behind Gears, MGS4, Killzone 2 and even your average movie-to-game conversion looks better than this. I know the graphics will probably improve but they should not have released these screens/pre-rendered video interspersed with actual gameplay footage.
LOL. I like you , after suffering with Detroit lions, I needed a laugh and son you just gave me one. I enjoy clowns
its a beta build the grahpics dont matter yet
The graphics may not matter yet, but why are they releasing those screens if they look so bad? Screens are meant to be released to hype people about the game and these put me off. The gameplay, presumably, matters - but the game is a new IP from a dev that hasn't made this type of game before. It's ripped straight from gears of war and even if they perfected the shooting and cover mechanics with graphics like that it wouldn't even come close.
at least visually so far...but the developers said it was the japanese answer to Gears so i'm interested in how the gameplay will be...
well if its ment to be a jap shooter then grahpics dont matter that much, because they dont care about grahpics over there its all about gameplay. Also besides steriod chars this game looks nothing like gears its probly gonna play more like unreal.
although i do agree with thor about a lot of things, lets give them time and see what they can do with this game. in my opinion, im starting to get tired of Gears controls.
i think everyone has to admit that the big boss guy looks tight as hell
@thor I was going to enjoy posting in this article, but you're comments literally make me want to scratch my eyes out. You're the kind of person that makes me rage.
Reminds me of gears of war...... the graphics look......well, not very good to me, I think I'll skip this game and pre order killzone 2 instead. I don't feel like playing a japanese version of gears of war. =/
the game has color and looks better 100% ingame shot (reticle in the middle) http://ps3.gamespy.com/dor/...
looks pretty good. I like the art direction and I am a sucker for third person action/shooters.
<3_<3..... TPS games are really exciting. Well, any shooter genre for that matter. I might get this game. HOT GIRL + TPS = heh heh heh...LOL jkjkjk I have my girl to keep me company anyways...She'll be busy with LBP. Damn, gonna fight for the controller again..Need to get another controller. laters.
this could sink or swim. a good Japanese shooter with great story for the win!
It looks like a rip off from Gears then implanting it on a DMC1 setting.
it looks pretty cool, like a JPN version of Gears i'm liking the art direction so far.
"it looks pretty cool, like a poor mans JPN version of Gears" Fixed that for you.
"trolling is what I do best baby" Fixed that for you
Wow. 5 disagrees because I though "trolling is what I do best baby" was funny... I see the 360 fanboys are out tonight.
Low-Res and Aliasing I'm Here =D
http://ps3.gamespy.com/dor/... do u see the reticle in the middle sucks to be an XBot @bastard below u are giving Montreal a bad remove ur XCOC from ur mouth
Biggest joke on N4G, nasim! lol new account, coming soon. /on topic This game does look great though, can't wait for more info. But as nasim and his 100+ accounts would say, these screens are bullshots. But as a hypocrite, it's nothing new to see him skip this fact for these games.
ahhh, troll does not like getting trolled....boo!
Well considering those are the first screenshots released and the game was announced for the first time this TGS, they look pretty good. Still, the game doesn't appeal to me at all...
http://ps3.ign.com/dor/obje... they better clean the floor textures
Yeah, it looks too...flat. :/
Look O.K. Too early to tell.
Looks better than 99% of xbox 360 games
Actually, It looks like Gears of War and Too Human had a bastard child.
Like a shooter but with RPG like art. Usually most shooters go for the rough and tough style, you don't see too many shooters with characters looking like Castlevania or Final Fantasy all dramatic. Seriously, from those screen shots it looks like Gears of War meets Final Fantasy or something. That's pretty cool But still it's too early to know if it's a quality game or not.
People who are slating this are idiots, honestly its just xplop fanboys getting jealous coz its not being released on 360. Its early days yet and to me its looks like this game has awesome potential. The graphics even though very early stages look jaw dropping, just look at the huge boss, the detail is staggering. Something only ps3 is capable of!!!!!!!!!!
are you high? hes covered in low res textures... Not impresive at all. Unless you were insinuating that only the ps3 is capable of low res textures :P Haha sorry. But seriously, I'm not saying anything about this game until I see some gameplay, and maybe more polish down the line. If this is near to the final product, maybe they shouldve just went with the wii or something... I dunno. I havent seen a game look that bad since all them crappy xbox ports released during the 360's launch. If its not near the final product and the games only been in development for the last 5-6 months and hasnt even hit alpha yet. Well then. Then I'm looking forward to what will come out of this title. I agree with Thor though, the art style doesn't really appeal to me. Something about it... I dunno... Will I even need this game after little big planet anyways!?
Why can't japanese devs make normal-looking characters? I'm sick of colorful hair and ridiculous armors
That's what it looks like to me at first glance a big buff dude holding a gun like in Gears of War but the art is more like a Japanese RPG.
this is GeoW killer? FAIl! why even hiphopgamer wet his pants for this game?
The Gears of War killer comes under the title Resistance 2, and the subsequent Gears of War 2 killer is Killzone 2
I didn't know it was possible for a FPS to be a TPS killer.
Graphics look good. Kinda looks like a hybrid of Onimusha and Devil may cry though. They seriously need to change the name.
Going to be better not going to be the same like this.
Can someone tell me what is with the ridiculously bulky steroid character trend? Gears started it, they look ridiculous, then Chris Redfield of RE5 got slightly infused with it, now this. Its just silly, Nathan Hale has the tiniest bit of it in the sequel but at least he still looks human. Get off the roids.
Uh............. those are some pretty bland screenshots for what is supposed to rival GEARS as SONYs 3PS. I mean did we need an overly buff guy with stupid tattoos? I thought Reaper from UT3 was uninspired *cough*Dom with face tat*cough*..... but who knows, maybe they are early build and a few months down the road I will be saying ZoMG Quantum Theory!!1!
What a garbage-looking game. Trying too hard to be Gears, yet looking very ugly. Must be Asian devs. Those guy's are still playing catch-up with us Americans. Poooor ps3 counterfeit FLOPS like Wannabe Halo Constipation 2 :(
The Japanese are usually better at crafting stories better than the west, and the west is usually better at curing an icthy trigger finger. If Tecmo is able to get the gunplay down and touch up the graphics the game could be pretty awesome, It makes me think of a mix of Gears, and Devil May Cry. It's still pretty early in development so we will just have to wait and see how it turns out when it gets closer to release, so far though I will say that I am atleast interested to see how it turns out.
It looks good but that comparison to Gears of War 2 killed it. The best shots aren't in game and while it's kinda rich in color it's pretty average in overall detail. An exclusive by TECMO at this moment, shouldn't be something to be too excited about, remember the company is in big financial and legal trouble now.
This is a cheap Gears of War rip-off that Ps3 Fanboys are trying to hype even though it will F A I L. Just like the way they hyped Lair and Haze (Halo-Killer, Lol) All aboard the FAIL TRAIN
