Tecmo has released some new screenshots of its upcoming Gears of War like action game for the PlayStation 3 called Quantum Theory.
http://www.gamekyo.com/Webm... WOW what great particle effects! What great high-poly character models! /sarcasm
that bad... and It still seems early in their dev cycle. Why the hate? Not every game has to be a graphical juggernaut.
This game has so much potential, don't slate the game yet. Im confident thi game will look and play really good
Seriously, do you want to see mindblowing graphics already when...idk, the game isn't even done yet? Give it a chance. If it flops, then you can say 'I told you so.' I'm intrigued by it but not too hyped as of yet.
I think this game looks very cool. In particular, I love the use of color that's seen in these screenshots. It's like Gears of War meets Devil May Cry. Hopefully the gameplay will be solid.
why do a lot of people think that a finished product will look way better then a pre alpha build. The textures and models you see are not place holders that will magically be replaced by something better, then there would be no point in releasing screens at all. What you see is what you get, this game doesnt deserve hyping from PS3 fans, that at the same time piss on games like Ninja Blade and Splinter Cell, which both look lightyears ahead of this one.
You make a lot of sense and know what you are talking about. I agree, it's like any game - there's of course going to be polish added as you approach the final build, but the general aesthetic will remain the same. To make these screens look better they'd have to redo everything, and if that's the case, why are they releasing screens? Bubbles up.
LOL Gaiden Gears! Poor Tecmo. Maybe you can at least pay your devs when the project is completed this time?
I thought the Japanese make original games not rip-offs.
What just like gears was really original with it's cover system. Please dont waste time here with stupid comments.
facepalm, other than the cover system, this game seems to be nothing like Gears of War.
You mean other then Kill.Switch
.. you mean other than Win Back.
Who brought us Ninja Gaiden, and Dead or alive, which are two phenomenal games. Those two games alone tell you what tecmo is capable of, and if you are judging this game from these early screens and saying that it looks bad, you need to wake up. You and I both know what this team is capable of. I can picture this game with the polish and detail that went into their previous games and I can tell you that this game is going look great. As for gameplay the idea of the environment changing around you is mind blowing. One minute you are safe the next you are doing the superman for cover. All in all we will have to wait and see what this great team of artists do with this game. Personally I believe it will be a hit.
Tecmo is not capable of anything. Team Ninja created ninja gaiden and death or alive, Dont give credit to Tecmo for what team ninja did, as Tecmo was just a publisher.
Actually, most of those guys left together with Itagaki...
Another title to add to the PS3's monster 09 lineup.
Keeping an eye on this. Shows promise but requires a lot of work yet.
looks ok so far, a bit flat but it will improve. Tecmo knows the PS3 better than the 360, Sigma actually ran at 720p.
Sigma had Itagaki. I know he wasn't that much a part of the team who ported the game to the PS3, but he designed the original and probably overlooked their work.
Sigma ran 1080p 60FPS. Edit: MvmntInGrn is correct. Sigma Native 1280x720, upscaled to 1080p. Ninja Gaiden 2 1120x585 (2xAA). http://forum.beyond3d.com/s...
LOL Itagaki was a fool and he DIDN'T work on Sigma. He disliked Sigma even though it ran better than his 360 project. Do your research. EDIT: Sigma could run in 1080p but not native, native is 720p. NG2 was like 660p
Thanks Fishy, I didnt know that, next time I play Ninja Gaiden Sigma I will put it on 1080p.
Sigma was a port of the original Ninja Gaiden game that came out on the Xbox, which was designed and produced by Itagaki. Don't tell me to do my research when you don't know what you are talking about.
And you do some playing before stating nonsense, if you think NGS looks even remotely as good as NG2 (despite lower native res) then you are blind. I have no doubt the ps3 can do NG2-level gfx, probably better then what was done on the 360, but as of NOW, the comparison between sigma and 2 is ridiculous. And On topic: that looks horrible, horrible. Fix it, I like tecmo.
Looks like an upscaled PS2 game. Some of the worst texture work I've seen this gen. Let's hope it's just in an early stage or something.
LOL! That's funny,that's EXACTLY what i said when i seen banjo,L4D,Infinite undiscovery and too human! Edit: Here..just for you jenzo http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... i really did say it. Now let's see you spin that! :)
I'm sure you did.
Sadly in its current state i have to agree with Jenzo. It looks like its using some kind of variant of the Dynasty warriors engine. I bet it will look much better by the time its out.
The name seems cool "quantum theory" but the early screens look really underwhelming. Hope they still have a lot of time with this so they can improve the graphics. Know nothing about the gameplay other than its influenced by gears. Well see.
Gears of War like action game for the PlayStation 3 called Quantum Theory. Hahahahhahahahaha hahahhahahahhaha.
Aren't you playing it, the GOTY 08?? You are here 24/7, making stupid ass-related commentaires, how you get time to play the magific GoW2?
FLOP OF THE YEAR CONFIRMED ! Quantum Theory will be much better that GoW2 :))
Make it as hard as Ninja Gaiden please.
I thought Team ninja worked on NG... even though they're owed by Tecmpo, what do they have to do with Tecmo's projects?
nothing, but ever sindce Tecmo revealed a PS3 exclusive they are all of a sudden the Ninja gaiden creators, and all of a sudden rock, althought the majority of ps3 fans here claimed that Ninja Gaiden 2 sucks.
And ever since Tecmo revealed a PS3 exclusive 360 fans claim that Tecmo sucks and that this game will be horrible.
Team ninja and Tecmo rocked untill Itagaki and his closest buddies left, I don't know anything about the new team except that they worked on sigma which was basically a port of ninja gaiden black + a rachel segment (YUCK!). This game will be what makes or brakes the new team, they might be kickass and they might be suckass, we'll have to wait and see.
And then Foxgod got pwned!
my god he has a completely stretched face, it's really really poor modeled and uvmapped,i like the general look of the game but character models are s**t
Also, I'd like to play a demo.
I don't have much faith in this Japanese Gears of War, but we'll see how it really is when gameplay footage is released. Hoping for it to be good anyway, so no one will have reason to buy a 360 at all.
yet in the end this PS3 exclusive is a blatant ripoff and copy in the end. GG fanbois.
Thor, Normally i'd agree with you. But on this your both wrong i'm afraid, the game is about 22% done. And yes alot of these textures/models are place holders for what will become. Once everyone is in place the story gets completed while graphical fx are added, diff teams working on each, depending how many are doing it. Point is, graphically and story wise, depends on whats in the scene, and you can add alot more graphically when you know your limit and exactly how you want it to look. These shots are way to early to judge anything and should be viewed as such.
hahaha Quantum ripoff
Hopefully the final product will look somewhere close to that. I guess there´s nothing to do but wait and see...
