This game went from interesting to must buy for me. I think its awesome when games opt for a more stylized and original look. June release eh? Maybe in Europe. Gamestop and VGReleases list the US date as September.

it was pretty obvious from the vids that it wasn't cell shaded.

when i saw it i thought "wow, they've really made major strides in cell-shading technology."

Perhaps the game does look like that scan that floated around?

But they call it "Painterly" or "illustrative",a tweaked version of cell shading...

I liked the look of the scan.It had some style and flare.Not just another brown/gray grunged out generic shooter...

It'll be nice to see what really is up when they showcase some shots Monday....

As I said in my earlier post,it's a "tweaked version" of cell shading...Certanly not yet another generic grunged out cookie cut shooter....

According to Gearbox Software's Steve Gibson, the cover art for the June issue of PC Gamer is an actual in-game screenshot, bereft of any post processing. While it's not technically cel-shading, it's certainly something more than your average 3D rendering, looking more like an image you'd find in a comic book than anything you'd see on a computer screen.

Take a look at the shot here....

Why even start such a rumor? If it is one.

I knew Gearbox couldn't be that stupid to change everything this late. with only 6 months left it would almost be impossible.

GameGambits3483d ago

I knew something didn't add up when the screenshot shown was just concept art.

my hype just now went up.

dont get me wrong cel shaded games are cool and all....but it just doesn't fit games like these..
