Thanks for sorting that out for me mate

Systematrix4228d ago (Edited 4228d ago )

You got me there.

*Edit* Well you changed your comment so this makes no sense now. Game looks good though, I like the neck snapping.

Hey, that looks like footage of the old escape from butcher bay. You sure thats the new game? I recognized the jail cells and everything.

InMyOpinion4228d ago

The footage is from the old Xbox game.

FCOLitsjustagame4228d ago

The "new" game is the old game with added content.
I was confused when I watched that on Game Head to as I didnt know if they were showing the new and improved graphics or just some scenes from the old game since they would be the same. Of course everything is going by so fast its hard to judge if it is indeed prettier or not, especially since the original was so nice looking. I guess I will wait for the game to be closer to release before I start one of those "the graphics look the same" type post :).

1.) The footage is CLEARLY from TCOR:EFBB....NOT from the new game.

2.) The game will be ENTIRELY next-gen, rebuilt from the ground up, with a new engine, and with all-new additional content to boot.

3.) NOTHING was shown from COR:AODA.


T-Virus4228d ago

The game IS NOT being rebuilt from the ground up. It's getting next gen bells and whistles, but it's not being entirely remade.

THWIP4228d ago (Edited 4228d ago )

Go back and LISTEN to what the man says. He clearly states....and this is VERBATIM (which means a word-for-word quote) "..this isn't a case where we just took the old gen and uprest it. We are redoing ALL of the content, all of the textures are being redone, so that it truly feels like a next-generation game".

From now on, stay out of grown-up convos, when you have the comprehension level of a 5th grader.

For T-Virus AND BillyBaker...

Starbreeze Studios is the same team that is making The Darkness...using an upgraded Starbreeze Engine....which was the backbone of COR:EFBB. They are using this same engine to re-make COR:EFBB as COR:AODA. If you can't manage to deduce from what the man said, that this isn't a case of just upgraded textures, like a PS2-to-360 port is dones...then you're both in need of an adequate education. He said "ALL CONTENT"..."all& quot ; means "EVERYTHING".

Geez, you guys are thick-skulled!

Cyclonus: You moron, that's archive footage....the "project in not capture" was early footage of COR:EFBB.

T-Virus4228d ago

5th grader? OK, I'm not exactly a full grown man, I'm 17, but assuming someone is a "5th grader" just because he/she said something that you may not agree with doesn't make them a 5th grader. I have 5 bubbles, so I've said things that obviously don't offend people, you have 2 - no doubt offending people for no reason, just what you have done to me. Insulting people for no reason could be considered "5th grader" maturity. /rant.

PS: Redone textures =/= rebuilt from the ground up, like you seem to think they're doing.

WilliamRLBaker4228d ago

rebuilt would mean they rebuilt the entire engine to take advantage of nextgen, if all the guy said was thecontent and textures were being redone then that doesn't mean its being totally rebuilt...

FCOLitsjustagame4228d ago

Well Starbreez does have their own engine that they use. I assume they think its next gen enough for The Darkness. So the question is how much did they need to do to the old Riddick code to use the Next Gen-ness of their custom engine?

I would say they are not totally remaking the game as they likely wont redo all the code in the game but I dont think its a simple "port" either. If that makes any sense.

Cyclonus4228d ago

It shows footage from BOTH the Xbox and now-gen versions

It CLEARLY says "Xbox Footage" on the screen when EFBB is displayed, and "project is in development and not indicative of final product. do not capture footage" when it switches to AoDA.

Next time you want to try and "clear this up" make sure you actually know WTF it is you're talking about.
