these pics are pretty nice. I'm not sure about the third pic, but the second pic is really cool. Cool screenshot

Moostache6503d ago (Edited 6503d ago )

in my opinion that does not look any better than GTA:SA on the original XB.

I have not been overly impressed by this title since the screenshots and videos started surfacing for it. I am sure that a lot of people will enjoy it, but to me this game does not have the same "wow-factor" of GRAW or Oblivion or Gears or Rainbow Six or Halo 3.

It just looks like a PS2/XB title a bit too much for me...of course, that said, the sky diving pic is pretty cool. I guess the HDR lighting is "next-gen", but the character model doesn't look too special...

lol, I looked at the pics and was thinking the same thing. I hope theyre messing with us and havent cleaned it up yet. Just another title that graphically doesnt look up to par.

This game has over 250,000 acres. Thats gi-freakin-normous.

Whats cool about Just Cause is that you can: Jump on the roof of your car, hop over to a nearby car, kick out the driver, build up speed, jump out and pull your chute, and PARASAIL behind your car!

That nuts. 0_0

I know games cost more now, so we demand more, but all you seem to care about is graphics and that's it. I think the gameplay looks amazing and more importantly 'fun'.

I dunno man, 4 kinda sucked compared to 3 personally, i do wish they would take on a Mercenaries sequel though

Wretchedstain822d ago

Not sure if the IP still exists anywhere, or who owns it now, but yes, that would be an awesome idea. Pandemic studios did a few good games before they got closed by EA in 2009. The Saboteur is still a go to game of mine. Mercenaries 3: No Limits was one of the cancelled games we all missed out on.

slayernz822d ago

yeah my thoughts as well, loved #3 but #4 was pretty meh just nowhere near as much fun, felt like a grind

Minute Man 721821d ago (Edited 821d ago )

I'm loving #4 right now

LordoftheCritics823d ago

I think the game needs a reboot.

Same save the island situation since the first. Each iteration feels mostly a tech upgrade.

porkChop823d ago

They're busy working on Contraband, a new IP. I like Just Cause but they don't need to pump them out one after another. Mad Max showed they're far more than a one trick pony, so just let them do what they want to do.

isarai822d ago

They have two studios, so i hope the other is working on something cool. Hell i'd be psyched for a mad max sequel honestly.

Wherever it is, I just hope it isn't cross gen

Just Cause Developer's Huge Cancelled Open-World Game

In an interview with Wassup Conversations, Mikael Säker writer of such games like Battlefield 3,4,1 and The Darkness, talks about a cancelled steampunk open-world game in an alternative history of the 1950s of London. The game was in production at Avalanche Studios, the developer behind Just Cause games but it was cancelled due to economical crisis of the studio at the time. More about the game in the link.

"That was not fun. I think they had to let the half of the studio go, over a night because of the economic collapse. The publisher cancelled all their games except one, and it was a big publisher. But had been working on this awesome open-world game set in an alternative reality version of 1950s. It was insane! We had a huge this huge version of London that looked spectacular. We didn't have skyscrapers, but we had, like inverted heights, so the city grew downwards, to the ground. You could fly ziplines, airships, planes and jump down to these really, really deep holes in the middle of the city. So it was visually, and world-building wise spectacular and It had some really great gameplay ideas." Unfortunately, the game was cancelled because it needed another two years of development during those hard times of Avalanche.
Why do we miss out on such gems?

"steampunk open-world game in an alternative history of the 1950s of London."

That sounds awesome, and of course it's cancelled. *Sigh*

lelo2play1179d ago (Edited 1179d ago )

Looks interesting. Microsoft or Sony could help (€€€) with this game's development.

BTW, wouldn't mind a Mad Max sequel from Avalanche.

moriarty18891179d ago

agreed. Really liked Mad Max.
