An interesting comparison of the visual techniques used in the creation of Mass Effect's main character. The differences from the E3 2005 build with the latest screenshots are quite impressive.
and my list is extremely hard to get on
1Brothers in arms: Hells highway
umm... so far thats all the games i intend to purchase
i believe this game will be great!!
and why is the link to ps3forums this game is a set stone x360 exclusive, MS is publisher
The main chracter is completely customizable. You make your own Shepard...male or female. This guy is just a stand in.
If what you say is true kevoncox, that's freakin' awesome.
wow, they've made some great strides... i forgot how he looked at E3... definately a great improvement
The latest model looks amazing. I wonder if everything shown is in-game or whether some comes from cut-scenes or pre-rendered FMVs.
all in game
EVERYTHING you have seen in mass effect is 110% in game.
this isn`t fony sony! all real baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this game is going to be out of control. I can't wait for it to come out. Between this, Halo 3, Assassin's Creed and Bioshock, it's going to be a great second half of the year for gaming.
Looks like it turning out great, graphically that is. Hopefully the gameplay is good too.
They have to work to fix the jaggies on both consoles PS3 and 360 ( all games have a lot jaggies and those jaggies are funny in 2007 almost 2008 )
"They have to work to fix the jaggies in both consoles PS3 and 360" Do you mean in general or for the game? Because you do know its 360 only?
Just wondering if you mean all together because i agree.
The reason why the pictures are a bit jaggy is because the are taking a picture of animated 3D model. If you saw a video you wouldn't notice any jags because each animation is moving to fast to notice.
thats all in game, Bioware almost never uses CGI except for stuff like ship battles or explosions
This looks so good. But we can wait so long, Bioware. We are drooling.
Personally, I like Shephard's X06 look. More Dirty Harry -ish. I'd have preferred if they'd have stuck with that style. The new look seems a bit out of place for me for some reason. Maybe it's just because of the way I'm going to play the game. Meh.
The look is customizable. I bet you could even make him look like Hulk Hogan if that's what you fancy.
I know he's customizable, but as the "face" of the game in advertising, I prefer the old guy.
Awesome. You're a cool person.
when this game hits.... until then... i don't give a rats azz about info. I hope it doesn't disappoint though... that would suck and be str8 comedy being that a ton of work is obviously being put into it.
As much as i just wanna say (OMG thats awesome looking!!) i can't becuase when i (and all of you) play this game we control him from the back of him.. So either the back of hes head is really really pretty next gen i need more. I want to see the environments improve and other things. Not to say they haven't because they looks great. I wanna see the levels be huge and look amazing.
@fjtorres I have seen all the videos and yes you do change camera but i still feel 90% of the time your going to be running around behind him. Not that i don't like it i love it. It looks freaking great! Just i would rather then show off the levels.
You haven't seen the downloadable in-game videos on XBOX Live, have you? When you're exploring/fighting, the camera runs above and behind the character.
But when you're in conversation/interaction with other characters, the cameras move around in a very movie-like fashion from one character to the next so you get to see your character from all angles.
It has been since I last saw Crysis that I was really impressed with graphics. I was absolutely astonished by the level of detail on the last pic.
It is true however that they need to work on the jaggies, if it weren't for those you could possibly misjudge him as a real person.
Bioware did an amazing job, congrats to them!
Makes me really looking forward to the game!
Those types of things can only be done with Cell. This is why we need to invest in the Cell. $600 is not to much. It will teach us all discipline. I will want to work more hours so I can get it.
LOL you forgot to mention you need bluray. He's face alone is 12GBs!!!
If it's not possible then why is it running on an Xbox 360 build?
I think you are misunderstanding what they mean with his face is 12 Gb.
It is able to run on a DVD. Look up how textures work, you'll understand.
okay the lips are 50 gigs. The eyes are 50 gigs. We will need like 10 dvd 9s to play this game. The 360 is ripping me off. Mass Effect looks like a $600 game. It plays on a $300 console. So by that logic how many games will you know who have that will look like $1200?
Semimorphus calm down it was a joke. We were making stuff up. also "I think you are misunderstanding what they mean with his face is 12 Gb" I made that up they never said it was 12gbs.
I feel sorry for people who can't pick up sarcasm like that -_-
lol @ Semimorphus. I bet you're one of the two people that disagreed with him XD.
Hmm, looks so good. I would even go that far to say better than ...no i will stop. I will just say that this is best looking console game i have seen. Very impressive.
That is amazing, here's to hoping for a 360 when this game hits, i can't believe i actually want to play this game more than final fantasy...after being a fan for soooooooo loooooonnggg.
Can't wait for E3, so many great games will be shown. From Microsoft and Sony. I also expect "secret" projects to appear! Its going to be wild!
Sorry I took you guys a little too seriously, didn't know you were joking, you never know... :-p
This. Game. Is. Going. To. Be. GOTY.
The 360 has a stellar line up this year. This is probably the most exciting year for Software in Gaming History. And they're all on the 360 =0
The most exciting year for software in history was the third week of August in 1982 when Ivan Sigorski released his basic math calculator for the Apple IIe. They had a parade and everything!
God those were the days.
For all gamers. ;)
What I don't like though is the low-detailed backgrounds and aliasing. I've been hoping for those to be fixed for about year now. =/
DJ! I didn't realize you still had an account. Had been wondering. Or maybe I just missed your posts. Good to see the king of Sony trolls hasn't given up yet. Heh.
You know you want suck Mass Effects bird! Just admit it.
I'm still kinda new here. But If DJ is saying something rather good about Mass Effect, why all of you are insulting him. I may understand if he was insulting ya'll. But man! Ya'll are ruthless. He just had one little opinion about one little detail lol. However I don't agree with DJ about the background. They look rather impressive. But that's just my own opinion.
Sensitive little girls, aren't they? I mean, the aliasing is RIGHT THERE for the whole world to see. I don't understand how people can disagree with visual proof.
But yeah, I did state that there's been a massive amount of improvement in both how the character looks and in the quality of the modeling/texturing. Bioware's obviously trying their best, but they have been complaining about fitting the whole game onto a DVD. My guess is that since characters are what you focus on the most when playing, they're sacrificing some environmental detail to make them look better. It's a storage capacity issue, not a talent issue. I'm actually interested in seeing how well these guys pull of this title.
*Edit: I've been looking at gameplay screens instead of Cinematics, so maybe that's why the guys below me (i.e. Power of Green) don't agree with what I'm saying. It'd be nice if the people trying to disprove me used 720p resolution gameplay screens instead of downsampled ones. Shrinking photos hides things like aliasing. I'm a 3D artist so I pick up on that stuff right away.
However, I do like how the Cinematics look, and the lighting/texture work look really amazing in those screen captures. I just want the gameplay graphics to equal the fidelity of the in-game cinematics. Heavenly Sword developer Ninja Theory spent a lot of time and money accomplishing this feat, and it'd be great if Bioware could pull it off as well.
This game graphics are top notch. It really shows what the 360 can do. The console is worth the trouble it gives me from time to time.
WOW, now i need to pick my jaw up off the floor!
Another reason to get a 360 and to take a big piss on the PS3! Eat a [email protected]
I love my 360 alot but don't bring the rest of us down. Just because i like my 360 doesn't mean i think the PS3 is total crap.
PS3 isnt total crap just not as good as the 360.
I guess your some dumb ass americunt... Why dont you get off your ass get a job and stop pumping your moms ass...
I also have a 360, and i really enjoy it. Aswell as a PS3, also enjoy it. Your comment was very immature and offensive. And since I am a sony owner, I consider you comment directed towards me. You have been reported and I will continue to report you for insulting other gamers with this "homo erotic" stuff. However, if you have to "jokingly" insult one another. Act accordingly/mature. Keep the "homo erotic" crap out of here.
If this was a halo 3 room a flame war would just start. Maybe in this room that comment will go by unheard.
Regarding jaggies , fair enough but would you seriously let it get in the way of a great game.If it's too much of a problem ,decreasing sharpness makes it less obvious.When things are moving as well ,it becomes less noticable.We are spoilt with graphics as good as what were getting these days - things have come on tremendous leaps and bounds.I do wish things were perfect of course but we will always nit pick no matter.
There only one class when it will come to these kind of games. And thats soldier. Just plain head to head fighting. lol
Hey how become this game is under PS3 Forums
By the check out these screens at gamestop.
I guess the PS3 forums have a xbox forum in them...

Low detailed backgrounds and aliasing??!?!? I know you are not talking about these backgrounds:

DJ you smoke rocks. That first pic alone blows away any other game on any other console. Only on 360.
Damn incredible. Oh damn it is a trilogy.

No one's going to give a fuc about the cheap shot DJ made about this game ofcource he has never commented on a 360 game without a negative spin to counter the good comment.
This game blows away any game i have seen on any console so far. the facial expressions look much better on this game then lair.
The graphics could be better then gears.
his name reminds me of the guy from stargate Atlantis.
I like the screenshot from X06 trailer the most, he actually looks pretty awesome. The first two screnshots make him look like a pedo lol. But the graphics do look awesome I must say, they need to fix the jaggies like everyone else said but I'm sure it looks better in game.
are the levels anywhere near lair size? no and the graphics? no, give up top notch 180 fan
so who cares, and why do you even bother trying to put down a game this good i need to click ignore
but i am happy you're not clicking copy and paste, with that ten paragraph essay that makes you happy
that actually get me to ante up some money for my very own 3L33T. Looks great and I've read only good things about it.
Kevin you have been spamming the forums about how great Killzone 2 was gonna be yet you have seen nothing. This game is nothing like Lair to be honest, its very big and all the graphics are ingame. The fact that you have already got one bubble shows many people that your a fanboy, idiot, moron and you don't make any good comments.
Lair and Mass Effect are totally different games.
And dude, the PS3 is powerful, but the 360 is pretty powerful also considering it was the first console out the gate in this generation(how did you survive with your PS2 then?). Maybe not as much as the PS3 but, its still powerful.
But anyways, i can't wait.
