Bioware teases on their twitter account that new Mass Effect 2 screenshots are going to be revealed soon.They also add that even thou Mass Effect 1 was already beautiful game, ME2 visuals are blowing it away.
beautiful but some graphical issses,bugs and framrate issues pissed off some gamers
both the o wow n wth... lets jus hope they get this one running smother
Mass Effect is my favorite game on the Xbox 360 and I thought it looked great. There were a few issues but it didn't ruin the game in any way. It sounds like Mass Effect 2 is going to look amazing. I can't wait.
They've been saying the graphics are much better than the first Mass Effect since before they ever even revealed part 2. So far it looks exactly the same.
It's precisely those bugs which have been fixed in Mass Effect 2 they're not limiting to fixing stuff, but to dramatically improve virtually every aspect of the game. Mass Effect 2 has all signs to become Bioware's Masterpiece... and as the Top Rated Western RPG maker, by achieving this it would naturally become the best western RPG created to date.
"So far it looks exactly the same." If you've payed attention, the lighting and shadows are alot better, and that one planet they showed to demonstrate the exploration looked amazing too. It also looks more like Blade Runner and The Fifth Element now. "by achieving this it would naturally become the best western RPG created to date." IMO nothing is ever gonna be better than Deus Ex.
Mass Effect is the best exclusive on 360. It blew me out of the water when I played it. I doubt they make the game look that much better than the 1st one. And mass effect 1 did have some framerate issues.
in mass effect 1 were amazing... i mean the detail in the expressions i havent seen before... i was amazed unreal was capable of that .... you could see every line and curve on warrex's face as clear as day and boy was he ugly... and judging from the gamespot live demo of ME 2 running on 360 they have really put more effort into the console version and locked the framerate at 30 fps ... i cant wait for to play this game
Mass Effect is very good looking, I can't believe they pulled that off and making it look even better in part 2. And although ME had really good facial expressions that crown belongs to Valve with Half Life 2 & the episodes. I made it an issue to compare the 2 because I was so impressed with Alyx and her facial expressions and Bioware touting their facial expression technology. My 2 cents on it.
im only just playing mass effect for the first time now, and im so hyped for the sequel, uploaded it to the hard drive so i havnt found too many frame rate problems, still the odd pop in now and then. love the game though, and if ME2 is going to blow the first one away then its got to be stunning because the first game is pretty good in the looks department.
I doubt they can match the facial detail with the rest of the world. It could hardly run without an install after a few years of development. I doubt this extra time will provide a significant leap when its more than likely getting rushed out without a new engine. Last time I heard there was going to be some amazing sandbox game that was going to show off the 360's hardware, the sandbox portion was removed so the game could run. Last time I heard about a bigger better more badass graphics king, it wasn't even nominated for the award. Its going on 3.5 years right? And there isn't 1 game in the entire lifetime that has been released which shows a significant upgrade from the previous title. But just like Gears2/Halo OSD/Left4Dead2/etc, people can pretend the graphics are phenomenal by next gen standards within the 360 community of course. Lets remember this when the direct feed shows us detailed faces, fake depth of field, and low detail shaderless empty levels with lensflare & bloom. Devs need to stop BSing people. Register your name/disagree right now for future reference. All that aside, ME is the best recent western RPG out there. The graphics don't really matter for this experience at all. Nor do the bugs, else no one would have completed it.
@ Greywulf I usually dont do this, but you are such a blind Sony fanboy that im impress with your fanboyism. You never have anything good to say about any X360 exclusive. Please if you love Ps3 so much and dislike x360 so much stay away from its article. on topic, this game is going to look and play so good i cant wait.
psssshh.... there was plenty of detail in the other planets that you visit especially the ones in the story. Most of the places like the ships and such w/ the "low details" I believe is because that's the design they were going for. If they added too much detail to the ships and such, it wouldn't give it the sci-fi feel to it. I assume you saw this summer's Star Trek. Notice the bridge interior of the ship was rather plain cept the control interfaces? Love the game. Don't hate. I just hope they have more populated planets or space stations aside from just Citadel. It was kinda strange given a whole universe and most of the planets were just mere "outposts"
i think its official now...you are easily the biggest most butt hurt sony fanturd on this site congratulations! sony most be very proud of all the hardwork that you put into attacking their rival and its games. tell me, how much do sony pay you a month.....or are your only wages that what you get for doing chores around the house. normally you can be found trying hard to attack forza, now you've moved onto other games...lol then you attack the sand box portion being removed from alan wake. man you're a loser. what about infamous? the game that pretends to be a sandbox, when all you can do is run jump and climb walls. it's just a free roaming beat em up with the most repetative missions i've yet seen. yet all the sony fanturds like yourself try and claim its the best sandbox game around....when it's far from a sandbox. did sucker punch remove the sandbox elements because of hardware limitations.?????????? anyway greywulf everyone knows you for what you are, it doesn't need me to tell them loser. on topic, mass effect was a super game, and i'm pôsitive the sequel will be even better. haters be damned or buy a 360. you know fanboys, its great when you have both consoles, nothing better than choice.
I want coop in this game. And lets report Greywulf ok?
you must the biggest retard on this website. why do you hate the 360 so much? did it rape you or something?
@Admnins You really need to do something about the people who keep making accounts on this site. @ u got owned it isnt a 360 exclusive, coming to PC @ Aquanox Have you played the game yet? You seem to know a lot more thats been said. @king dong From what I see, every one who doesnt like the 360 is a ps3 fan boy While I agree I did like this game a lot, I have my doubts, this engine must be extreemely well put together. I think grey was just saying what the 360 fanboys where saying about some of their games, while he did talk more than needed to be said, I dk y people get so defensive, If you dont care y would you reply to it ? ill wait and see how this turns out, cus even with my gaming pc I have some lag probs on the game, hope they fixed it.
i dont give a sh!t if what you hate or on what side of the fence. read greywulfs comment history for an insight in to the type of fanboy he really is. i've got all the consoles, and i dont miss out on any fames because i couldnt bring my self to buying a console that i dont like. greywulfs just an annoying troll, normally if you want to find greywulf, just look in the forza threads....he hates it with a passion lol
I haven't played it but have seen the gameplay previews. First think that attacks the eye is how fluent the combat is... unlike ME1 which didn't feel that natural. The framerate has also been dramatically improve with a gameplay as fluent as Gears of War 1 was. The new characters are even more imaginative and intriguing than in the past, another score for Bioware, and according the IGN, the story promises to also surpass the already excellent one on ME1. Put all that togheter and you have a hell of a game.
@king dong I dont you just ignore him ?
the only blowing i want is Sheppard and a Krogan in a "scene" or else this game fails.
The game still has high polygon faces, and low detail everywhere else, and no one could refute that. Which is what I said. Sure, its because they want it to be old sci fi like Star Trek.. thats why the worlds are empty as well.. Infamous speaks for itself, as do its reviews. It has nothing to do with the notion that 360 games don't really have that leap in graphics from sequel to sequel, and you (23+disagrees)all know this. Not only that, but Infamous wasn't advertised as a dynamic sandbox world, then downgraded\removed. As I said in the first comment, Graphics don't matter though. Especially for ME because its a good game. But Devs for the 360 keep saying they are going to do dazzling visuals, then can't pull it off. And its been 3 years with easier hardware to develop for.
Bet not on the 360 they nearly hit peak on 360 as the glitches started to show. Plus don't get me started on framerate issues that are not clearly there on the... erm... I said too much :)
Ugh, I was gonna take a bunch of pictures to show Graywolf some of the textures, so I opened up Mass Efect and kept hitting f12 think I was taking screenshots, only to realize later that Fraps wasn't open! Anyways, the game is a mixed bag in the textures. Some of the textures, especially the rocks, look very good, but what was annoying is sometimes when you'd see a very good texture, there was an extremely ugly one right next to it. And the clothes textures are awful. Anyways, this all seems fixed in Mass Effect 2.
I should hope so. There better be a huge graphical leap from the first one that came out 3 years ago. Not just visually but technically as well. First day purchase for me.
There's only so much you can expect from the Unreal Engine 3.
too much alex jones eh lol nice pic. ima put up on myself
lol! Alex Jones ftw ;)
First day purchase for me as well... at least i hope. Is this game for next year or is it coming out this year around Forza's time? Cuz i'd be a sad panda if i have to juggle between ME2 and F3 .... too many games to enjoy this holiday!
well i hope so.
i really hope they eliminate the texture pop up. Other than that, ME was one on the better uses of UE3. The others being Bioshock and the new Batman game.
bioshock was modified unreal engine 2.5
The first one had very nice graphics, and wasn't a grapihcs hog at all. The only 2 things I didn't like about the graphics were the textures, which even on ultra high didn't look that great, although there were some textures such as rocks that were extremely detailed. But the non-story planets looks awful. And the second thing are the dynamic shadows on character faces. I turned off dynamic shawdows because it just made the character faces look ugly. Other than that, the graphics were very pretty, and these two complaints seem fixed from what I've seen of Mass Effect 2.
On Xbox360 (and pc) the king of Western RPGS.
i hope we get some more wrpgs on the 360
lol how can it be only possible on xbox360 while its NOT the most powerful system out there ? just like bioshok ? and all the other games that was ported to the ps3 after being a timed Exclusives for the 360 ? lol you just wana say it cus you feel like saying it yet you fail cus the only ppl can say that are the ps3 fans talking about there Exclusives by the way i dont own any console of this ganaration YET but if i did im sure i'll pick up a ps3 and a 360 at the same time
Only possiple on 360 and PC... actually... I'd like you to look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... I cannot find the quote I need this is just what I know from memory. 'The position of a particle cannnot be given... and it's position is only a probabilitity. So in your statement should be Only probable on 360(and BETTER on PC).
Just barely possible on Xbox360, easily possible on ps3, and best possible for pc :), fixed it
Yeah topdawg122 just like those poor looking poor running multiplats on the PS3, must be magic how they look better on the 360.
Most multiplats look the same to me, please don't post any links please jason360? im sure you have them ready like always. You gotta admit ps3 exclusives look better than 360 exclusive though right? right?
lol all those Disagrees well guess what waht i said is the truth and you guys got to face it =)
The King of JRPG's, shooters, racing games, Real Time strategy and Online gaming. hahahahha Poor M$ bots
Except the 360 IS effectively the more powerful machine. The top performance of the two consoles is very similar, but the 360 is much more efficient and easier to get good performance out of. All reliable sources have told us the two consoles are very close in power. From the lead engineer of the two CPUs to developers that have worked on both platforms. Did you guys read the Digital Foundry interview at Eurogamer with Tobias Berghoff who is the director of PS3 development for the game Sacred? He explained that the optimal performance for both consoles is surprisingly close, but that the 360 tends to give better performance in general. Here is a piece of that interview: -Digital Foundry: Your game is 'Full HD' on both 360 and PS3 with similar performance levels at 1080p... is it therefore safe to say that the rendering power available to you is approximately the same on both platforms? If not, is there any danger that third-party developers are favouring 720p in some cases simply to ensure platform parity? Tobias Berghoff: I usually put it like this: The optimal solutions for both platforms are usually surprisingly equal in performance (Hold it, fanboys! I'm not done!). For everything else, it's reasonably fast on the Xbox and absolutely horrible on the PS3.- http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... What he is saying here is that when you get things running optimally on the PS3 its performance is very similar to the 360 running optimally, but that short of getting optimal performance out of the PS3, rendering performance tends to be significantly faster on the 360 than on the PS3.
PLZ stop the BS cell is used in SUPER COMPUTERS now thats a fact DELL uses the cell as the processer to its high performance servers thats fact #2 yet core Processor is used in normal computers i can pick up a Processor better than that now in any computer parts shop the 360 is maxed out after only 3 years on it life span Remember that SC:C uses 100% power of the 360 uncharted 2 only uses 30% yet there is still one spu in the cell that's still unused it well be used in the Future via an update sony showed like thousands of HD movie clips in a really big show monitor like the one in cinemas and stuff IN THE SAME TIME can the xbox do that ? and about those "reliable sources" you talk about ofcorse they wont tell that xbox is not as powerfull as the PS3 cus if they did microsoft may sue them + im sure that microsoft pulled out a heavy cheak for ppl to say that cus they wana sell the xbox thats why
You are extremely delusional "The King of JRPG's, shooters, racing games, Real Time strategy and Online gaming" JRPG Star Ocean.. shooters Halo 3 tah.. Racing forza 2 and don't even mention GT5 that game is coming in 2012 when the world end.. RTS Halo Wars.. Online gaming well CoD4+Halo3+GoW2 good luck with that.
the joke is in his name. think about it!
You... really don't know what you're talking about.
You all will be utterly butt sore come next year. You all KNOW Mass Effect will be coming to the PS3. You'd have to be totally dumb not to see this but you all set yourselves up to eat serious crow. The more you deny ME on the PS3 the more you're going to feel like $#*! when it does come to the PS3. ... just out of curiosity, how many games does EA have exclusive to the 360?
EA published L4D on the Xbox 360, which is not available to the Playstation 3. EA also has also published a lot of exclusives on the PC and Nintendo Wii. How many exclusives has EA published on the Playstation 3?
Arnon EA has published 7 games which are 360 console exclusive and about 15 Microsoft exclusives for PC and 360. Droids like to think EA is a multiplatform publisher but in the real world they been doing "some" exclusives ever since the Sega and Nintendo days. They been told countless times that Mass Effect, L4D, Splinter Cell, and Gears stay Microsoft exclusive. They write rumors while living in their moms basement. I say let em dream and b!tch because it brings more hype for 360 games.
WRPGs blow JRPGs OUT OF THE WATER, period. Most JRPGs can't even compare Fallout, Oblivion and Mass Effect.
Shadow Man, give me sum of dat sh!t your smokin'
There is way too much blowing going on this gen...games blowing games, developers blowing console manufacturers and gamers blowing each other. Where's my wife?
Your wife? maybe she joined all those people you talked about...?
Typical of Bioware to overhype Mass Effect 1 and 2
the sequal looks better than its prequal? who would have thought that eh...
Well, like the majority of 360 games, they look terrible. Gears 2 for example, looks worse than gears 1.
No. Gears 2 looks wayyy better.
your wrong candian guy
You're* Nah, i am totally right.
-Nah, you're totally a troll. And you're full of it. Gears 2 looks noticeably better, to the point that many reviewers even mentioned that in their reviews.-
Well, in the bonus DVD for Gears 2 CE it shows you exactly how they upped the polygons on all characters, weapons, etc. So there. I'm going to be honest though, I like Gears 1's world better. Maps and just the look of them are better. Gears 2 made the world too big, too spaced out for the type of gameplay that Gears has. They should have made the scenery bigger not necessarily the space. Oh well, still a great game.
the game looks awesome
With EA making the majority of their profit from PS3, and since EA owns Bioware, along with that mysterious delay till 2010.. I'll be looking forward to the PS3 version. What do you think about that bots?
I hope it comes to ps3 too, i would love this game on my ps3!
