Mass Effect 2 render screens in 1600x800 pixels: PC Games published six 16:9 shots of Mass Effect 2.
Mass Effect 2 Game of The Year 2010 26/01/2010 Good Job Microsoft!
1600:800, so it's 16:8 really then isn't it? :D
Christmas comes again when this game drops.
Why good job microsoft. if anything you should be thanking Bioware.
Well not really. There is this relationship between "Console Manufacturer + Publisher + Developer that is still very important from when the game starts production to the end. I little bit goes a long way to making a success game(production-wise), successfully marketing it and getting it out to your fanbase on time. Some seem to think only one aspect of a "game production" should get all the credit. MS does not "Push a special Button" and a game Pops out, ready to sell.
More like, good job Bioware and EA. MS has nothing to do with the Mass Effect IP anymore. I think the only reason it's a console exclusive is because of contractual obligation from EA side they agreed to when they bought Bioware. But I do agree with you that this is a very storage candidate for 2010 Xbox 360 GOTY.
#3 looks amazing, don't know whats happening in it but it looks cool, it looks kind of like a reaper ship hovering above a lake :S
These screen-shots have way too much detail to be an X360 game. This is easily on par with Crysis and beyond any PS3/X360 game including Heavy Rain... My theory is 1. these are actually bull-shots or 2. PC version at high settings
Well half the shots or more are screenshots from the CGI clips, but 360 peeps always try to pass them off as in game, and I agree, they look better than crysis, it won't even look that good on pc
If you us think the final game will look like this you have another thin coming. I mean this game looks excellent for sure, but nowhere near Crysis/Uncharted level like these screens portray. Nevertheless, my most anticipated game next year right there with God of War, GT5 and Heavy Rain. I'm also loving the look of Alan Wake. Definitely a looker.
"If you us think the final game will look like this you have another thin coming. I mean this game looks excellent for sure, but nowhere near Crysis" What a silly thing to say, the screenshots are probably from the PC version which will undoubtedly look massively better than the Xbox 360 version. So there is no reason to doubt that these screenshots are representative of the final game if you are going to play it on the PC.
Just what I'd expect from the N4G community - Baseless assumptions about which consoles I own and don't own. @Charmers I bet you everything I own that most of those screens are taken of cutscenes and aren't actually representative of in-game visuals.
Just a wild guess: If this were a PS3 exclusive game you would be saying the opposite. You have to love this site.....
Killjoy3000 - how about you WAIT AND SEE eh ? I play Mass Effect maxxed out at 1680 x 1050 and never dip below 60fps. On those settings Mass Effect uses a woeful 50% of my Quadcore. So it is clear that they can easily push things higher on the PC. I am not saying the xbox 360 version will look like this. However to dismiss that the PC version couldn't do graphics of this quality is ridiculous. At the end of the day it looks good and I can't wait to play it. You just come across as someone trying to spoil the fun to be honest. If when the game comes out the graphics are "crap" then you can spout your opinion.
You can go ahead and put words in my mouth and falsely quote me as saying the graphics look like "crap," as YOU put it, but that simply doesn't change the fact hat these are screens taken of a cutscene. I don't doubt the power of the PC version to pull off an amazing looking game. I even said that the game looks excellent. You guys seem to be putting me on a pedestal as a Mass Effect hater, fanboy and overall just a downer but in reality I'm none of the above. You can say I'm "spoiling the fun," but really I'm just stating the truth. Or at the very least my hypothesis/prediction. Everyone has an opinion and here is mine. Mass Effect looks like a great game - but it won't look that great. @hoops This has nothing to do with consoles buddy. But i will hand it to you, you try real hard to bring fanboy crap into this.
Most of the Mass effect 2 media being circulated is from 360 version E3 demo was on 360 i. The shots which really look good are one with heavy light effects and I think those scenes are menat cinematics movement. The whole game will not be looking like that. But still ME2 seems to have left RE5 and Gears 2 far behind. Phew! talking about beating epic in UE3 utilization. I see a good thing over here most of the game devs by now have laerned to put really good Hi-res textures on games now the shold go for lightning that approches realism.
Bit of a random resolution to display in. Looking nice none the less. 1920x1080 for me, or, fingers crossed, 2560x1600 if my GPU holds up.
most def. buying the PC version of this game... it will be probably cheaper and no online play, falls in with my no longer paying for Live...I have been a charter Gold member and not playing to play anymo. whoever called this GOTY, is a fool... who knows, its way to early to tell, there are so many potential GOTYs next year.. maybe your fav...but once again...all we have to go by is screens and vids...
good decision not paying for live, its a ripoff. All the additional ways microsoft has of making money add up in the end. live, expensive accessories, costly games, charge for dlcs free on pc. pc version here. pre-order steam would probably have this for 45usd.
yea.. I have been playing for Live, since day one of the service...even this past year I paid all year for Gold and the last game I bought was Gears...hence I rarely use it. I hope the PC version has mods...that would be a slam dunk..only bad thing is the last version of ME I got was for the 360
Those are from the newest cgi trailer not in-game graphics
People already know that some of them are CGI and the others ingame from the PC.
Looks really good. It doesn't set any graphical standards but it looks impressive. I think Mass Effect 2 looks better than Gears. I prefer the art in Mass Effect over Gears.
and ps3 fans don't want to hear that they might get the worst version a year late, if even. So be quiet
360 wont be getting the superior version either.. just about every multiplat is superior on the pc.
...that is once you've installed it on a Windows based PC and have spent enough to keep the system current with today's demands. PC gaming may be graphically superior but it's not aesthetically superior. Given that you usually need to have a seriously beefy system I'd rather put the money toward a bigger TV, bangin' audio system, and a better couch experience.
@ above thats about the most ignorant thing i have heard. Pc gaming doesnt need constant upgrades, todays games run fine on a 8800gtx (which is 3years old now), so will ME2. Meanwhile it will out perform the xbox till the gen ends. I have a lan setup in my house. My older rig which i created when the ps3 was released still out does any console. following were the specs: 2.4ghz dual core 8800gtx 2 gig ram since all the games on the above rig are purchsed cheaper compared to consoles, onlin is free, most dlcs are free. The above rig cost me cheaper then any console would have. the above rig would be considered low to mid range by todays standard yet it still runs circles around any console, pcs needing to be kept beefy is a thing of the past. Games are now designed with consoles in mind which means 3-4 years old hardware, this means pc doesnt need hardware upgrades either since graphics are no longer being pushed up a notch every other year.
i hate sites who makes screenshots from the new Trailer and "sell" them as a great news...
Looks much better than that horribly jagged and unrefined Uncharted 2 game, whatever that was anyway.
Well I just hope that my opinion of the game hasn't crushed your heart, but it's true. Uncharted 2 is nothing I haven't already seen, moving on.
Killjoy, your comment is so moving. It's inspired me to see a new light...the possibility that I've hurt you is overwhelming. I do apologize. However Uncharted 2 is nothing new. It hasn't even left Earth, whereas even the original Mass Effect already went for the stars.
