Andriasang: Square Enix has released a few additional comparison shots of reality versus real time to demonstrate its new Luminous Studio engine. Once again, the shots are from a parking lot.
thats a damn good engine.
Don't care about their Engine - They should be bringing us the games they promised but never release, after years of development. (They know what I'm talking about)
Very nice lighting, but real-time on what hardware and with what frame-rate performance? Bit vague to say whether it's that impressive or not.
Now if only Square Enix can make a good game with it....
I always had a picture of a car engine in mind everytime they say game engine.... derp
Until they show it in action, being used in an actual game on my actual console, this means nothing to me. In other words: Rage says hi.
Looks nice and all, but you could create "photo real" images from many engines, not playable, but for some comparison screens, easy. Lets hope they can yield similar results on real world hardware and "playable".
Here is a Video http://www.youtube.com/watc... BTW is it clever to show a corridor with that engine, after the mess Final Fantasy XIII was...
Wow, that looks incredible.
I guess that's why it really will take awhile. Man Nomura is such the bomb, I really have high hopes for the title if he's serious about using features like these.
Now let's ALL complain about how the game we HOPE will be the savior of SquareEnix and all JRPGS is taking forever to come out. And let's ignore how that same game so far has shown itself to be very little like the "traditional" games we've been clamoring we want. Seriously, though, it looks quite good. If people would just stop being so... ignorant isn't the word, but it's close... then they might see they've made a few errors. Or a lot.
