By now you must have seen this great footage for Remember Me, an awesome-looking open-world game that Capcom showed off this week at Gamescom.
Really? I thought it was pretty average with today's graphics. On par with Mass Effect 3. Her walking animation was a bit weird and you could see sub-720p quality textures once you got close to objects (even her hands had aliasing issues).
same, nothing to write home about. i think it looked good, but not next gen. but then again its arguably the last full year of this gen so shouldn't every game look good at this point?
Yes, every third party multiconsole game should at least look like the better games from early in the generation by now. I can understand new devs having some issues, but dev/pub teams should be sharing what they've learned working with engines, which algorithms are best, and hardware devs should have shared all their knowledge by now. I think it's interesting how so many want this generation over, while we're seeing the the best work from devs right now. I say enjoy these great games coming, and the longer we hold off next-gen, the better next gen will be.
But this is Kotaku. Sony "messed up" by giving away exclusivity.....so naturally, it's the greatest game on the planet. Classy, unbias Kotaku...Still totally mature about getting blacklisted. Maybe we can get another faked loading time video of an upcoming PS3 game if we fail to give Kotaku hits this week.
^like N4G is any better LOL
@tr10wn What's your point? That makes Kotuku's level of journalistic (lack of) integrity okay?
Looks worse than Mass Effect (Graphically) but it's probably a good game. This game will release in May 2013 so maybe it will improve?
It's just kotaku hyping things up. besides bashing Sony this gen, they also took an interest in overhyping
and magically making up stories out of freaking nowhere *cough* Versus XIII *cough*
torchic: I thought that was a good move. The clearly did it on purpose to force SE to say something about the game. We will see if it worked during the even they will have in September, or during TGS. Either way, since they said that is still in development, if they were lying it will affect SE more.
Sony deserves any bashing they get as they have been one of the most arrorgant corps i have ever seen.
Ignore the over-hyping of the graphics in this article and it still looks great.
oh hell no the game looked good but no way is it next gen, wasn't this game adrift or something if i remember correctly? i thought i saw something about it a while back a 2013 release date
It was originally Adrift, then they parted ways with Sony and decided to do this.
yeah, but now it's "Remember Me"...hopefully people don't think it's a game adaptation of the Robert Pattinson movie.
cgooodno you said exactly wat I was thinking. It wasnt next-gen it was just average this gen, not next
Thought the exact same thing.
can i have some of your bubbles! oh good post (I would Bubbles + but then you would need a triple monitor set-up to see all your bubbles)
I actually agree and disagree too. Now i agree that the graphics don't "set my world on fire" but its the mere fact that its an OPEN WORLD GAME. Now saints row vs GTAIV. Saints Row by many accounts is the better open-world game this gen. GTAIV has been known by fans as the "gimped" GTA or the Worst etc. GTAIV LOOKS AMAZING! Saints Row...not so much. It boils down to this, you can't make Open world games this gen like last gen, based on that there technically isn't enough space to make it multiplatform and have the same features as the last gen versions without stripping features and making a lower quality game. ie GTASA was 5.2gigs (with no MP but split screen and clearly not in HD, and clearly not with the same physics) its 5.2GB and then an upgrade to 6.8GB. Thats just not enough to make a true sequel to a GTA game or really any open world game that used up all its space last gen. Even GTASA could not be done in mere HD using the same space, just the textures alone would make it more space then whats available on a single DVD9. So my gripe comes down to this, this gen we may have had the graphics, but we didn't have the content, fidelity, openness and we for sure didn't have an upgrade to an open world game ie something that could not had been done last gen (entering 90% of buildings, destruction of the world using real physics etc). And i'm a HUGE Kotor fan, i like Mass Effect, but i actually like more of what it could had been. The game looks great, plays great, but i don't know a sole alive that would disagree that it would had been more epic with the openness of KOTOR. Imagine a Mass Effect next gen, with a ship that you take from planet to planet ala Kotor. Amazing isn't it? So with me, it has really to do with its an open world game that looks THAT GOOD! This gen (to me anyway) was always a Half-gen. If we had more space, i feel games like this would had been made in 2005/2006.
Not modeled that well either. It's no Uncharted 2 that's for sure. Bioshock Infinite looks pretty good.
The game that looks most next gen to me is that new Star Wars 1313. Now that looks next gen.
Star Wars 1313 set the stage for Next Gen.
I think its more like when the new tech of the next Gen comes, this is wat ur gonna see at first. And as next Gen progresses, graphics just get better and better. Plus I think this is a open world game, so with the world rendering, the graphics are nice
I think the writer of this article doesn't even own a PC.
yeah. i think that perhaps jason schreier (the guy who wrote the post) might want to get his eye prescription looked at... it looked a tad under par to me.
it's also a game in development, so anything we're seeing right now isn't exactly the finished, polished product. and ME isn't exactly the best game to be using as a graphics threshold...
they still need to fix the hair. Not a big fan of plastic hair. She's on the ugly side too. I mean, I've seen ugly people that look interesting, but she's a bit generic. @cgoodno I gotta admit the combat animation is a bit awkward/stiff.
That is strange, because the first thing I thought about the trailer is that the graphics don't look that great, aliasing, animations, etc.
I think this will change your mind. Have you seen this? http://www.youtube.com/watc... What stands out is the lighting and artsyle. I don't know about the graphics though. I do agree that the animations needs a bit of work.
You're correct, looks much better in that game play video than I had anticipated after seeing the trailer.
Art and style aside, I seen blocky graphic, choppy gameplay with clunky motion.
it looks crap horrible animation and the graphics are nothing compared to ffversus and beyond 2 souls
Actually that game not gonna come out for WII U
Well, this is what I expect WiiU games to look like in the futture. Thst is if it can run in on these settings. This looks pretty polished to me, I saw no clipping on clothes and hair and that's an achievement in itself. + a reaal cool feature is that the two lose straps on her back, along with her hair, really move realisticaly without clipping. There are no jaggies on shadows or objects, the fog and lighting are a step above the rest. It looked like a really polished game that ran at about 60FPS. Compare this to your everyday game. Sure they all look the the same. In the end a texture is a texture. But in the end the jaggy free world, 1080p, 60p will prevail. There is no concole alive that can run this game at this settings. I sure hope Sony and MS will keep their promises this time...
Yeah, if it's not on Wii U, it can't be next gen /s.
I just looked at it for the Fisrt Time. Looks the same As Mass Effect 3 if not worse.
whats wrong with mass effect 3 nap ? the game was awesome despite the last 5 min enough said,
That game just looks ummm odd graphically and movement wise.
Deus Ex meets Splinter Cell and Assassins Creed.
It's the same developer of SC & AS.
Last time I checked SC & AS were not made by Capcom.
@AO1JMM check this: http://www.kanyetothe.com/f... Splinter Cell & Rainbow Six is developed by ubisoft & Assassins Creed developed by ubisoft i don't say Capcom.
Saw a video of it with a title relating to it being multiplatform and I thought to myself thinking *this looks pretty good for a XBL Arcade game and PSN title? I no nothing of this game is it a Arcade/PSN title? The destructoid video I watched on my HDTV showed that this game is being beat by XBL/PSN titles visually.
what the hell the guy is smoking what next gen craps are u saying dude. if u want to see something CLOSE to next gen on THIS generation of consoles then take a look a at final fantasy vrsus or beyond 2 souls. hell dude just check star wars 1313 on pc's...and u say this pile of sh1t made by crapcom is set for next gen ???
They are just the publisher, The IP is owned by Start up and independent studio DontNod! and It isn't crap. I'll say it isn't polished, but it still looks great, just not next gen great. Certainly Not Next gen looking like Starwars 1313 and watched Dogs, but Its a semi open world as there is exploration and traversal elements! and I saw alot of Uncharted influences! Secondly! This Game was a PS3 game up until last year. Just tone down on the ranting!
I'm kinda hoping Capcom gets the IP honestly, I want this chick in some crossover stuff.
If it is truly open world then they're not bad, looks like it's PS3 footage going by the L2 button
So I'm pretty sure all that data and code was used to make this demo. I'd say they are comfortable with the PS3 being Lead platform which is good.
It actually is not an Open World game. I guess Kotaku doesn't pay much attention to the games they preview. In this video that one of the devs says that the levels are linear as well as the story. He did say some levels may have branching paths but that they would lead to the same end. They are doing this too focus on the story and emotion in the game. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
...if true. That changes everything i felt about it then. Good day sir.
@_-EDMIX-_ Go to the 3:12 mark in the video link I provided and the developer states what the exact structure of the game is.
Sets the stage for next gen? What happened to Crysis 3?
what happened to Watch Dogs?
How does a PC game count?
This man is right, if we used PC to judge when next gen had arrived, then next gen would have been when the original Crysis released.
Why wouldn't the PC be used as a guideline to what we can expect? After all consoles are made up of PC parts too. What's hilarious is many of these games are released from the same publishers. What i think is going on here is some people don't like that power taken away from them while they continue to argue with other console fanboys going back and forth about exclusive A on system A, against exclusive B on system B. Because having an upper hand on the competing console means all the world to them. Reminds me of someone whining, why are you comparing the visual quality of that movie on DVD to blu-ray? Totally oblivious that consumers want to know if it's worth the upgrade and just how good the image can be on their HDTV. So yes, the PC will continue to be used to compare what next gen consoles are capable of for two main reasons. A lot of the same software is going to be available on both and the game console has changed dramatically since the days of the NES.
If this were a Ps3 exclusive one has to wonder what the comments would look like....
Probably the same. Though the graphics look good, they're not that impressive.
The graphics in that game were average at best. The only games that are/or close to next gen graphics is Star Wars 1313, Crysis 3 (PC), and Watchdogs.
Lets not forget Metro Last Light :)
Another gem from Kotaku.
and then layered with Mo cap like Uncharted and Assassin's creed! How ever! It still looks great and the game is more than a year away, i'm also sure that the game will prolly see a mild delay into Fall of 2013 vecause it has the potential to be a big block buster. I Think The graphics are great, if you think Mass effect 3 is horrible graphically then you i'm confused as to what gamers are expecting this late in the stage of this generation. as far as multiplatform titles go, Mass effect 3 and Bioshock Infinite are as good as it'll get! and this game sits well amongst them... I dont know if i fancy the Voice work. i understand that Dontnot is swedish and such the actors arent that great but even Heavy rain's French actors did a much more compelling Job! Id go on a whim here but had this title stayed with Sony I'd say The Developer would have had a bigger budget, access to worldwide studio's full support and probably had a much better system and time to make this shine as an exclusive versus having its resources split up to be a multiplatform title. Still what I saw has me intrigued to say the least and I'm more than willing to hold my reservations off of the game until its in my hands and i've spent a great amount of time with it! I wont say its a first day purchase but It great to see that not just Sony and Ubisoft are bringing New IP into existence at the end of a console cycle! I'll be on it!
Article is filled with FAIL!
people will be desperate to think every game announced this year will be next gen. poor tools.
They looked pretty mediocre to me in the trailer....
I would be excited, but it's got a seal of disapproval on it. (Capcom logo) And no it does not look next gen.
It wasn't mind blowing. The opening city scene was pretty cool, but that was in the distance and had a LOT of lights everywhere. Watch the gameplay once she starts climbing, right there the texture quality goes down and the character itself starts degrading. I know its an early build, but her hands were going through the wall, not really grabbing anything, and her feet were messed up at times too. Then the scene inside with the time thing, the textures were bad and the models of the things on the table were bad. Again I know its an early build, but this specific showing wasn't "mind blowing" just up to par with todays games.
graphics looked okay but gameplay totally looked boring.
Next-gen-like graphics? wat
these next gen articles are ridiculous, we don't need a next gen now, we can wait lol
author must not game on pc. Hell metro 2033 on direct x 11 looks a million times better on pc
