A new video of Mass Effect 2 emerged, which shows the first eight minutes of the upcoming sci-fi RPG.
there's a 30min gameplay video in the pending section that came out yesterday.
LOL. The WHOLE GAME is leaked on JTV. Check the archives at http://www.justin.tv/s1ayer
Hmm I didn't really want to spoil it for myself but I couldn't resist. That got me really excited to play it. Looks very good.
I'm not gonna watch it. I only need to wait 4 more days to see for myself.
I'll find the culprit that incapacitated The Normandy!
Color me impressed, i never thought it would look this good. [email protected] is right up there with the best on the graphic dept.
OMG! That was awesome, cant wait to get this game. Epic.
To watch, or not to watch...to watch or not to watch... *moves the mouse back and forth over the play button trying to decide*
The game leaked online a couple days ago.
there is no difference, it's all game engine, 360 maxed out my ass, amazing, this is right up there with UC2.
360 maxed out your butt?
I know what you mean tudors...this looks amazing...it definitely is right up there with Uncharted 2....I actually think the character models look a little better than Uncharted 2...but anyway it doesn't matter, they are both amazing looking games in their own ways.
You guys are on too much crack, how can you compare that to UC2 and keep a straight face lol. UC2 blows that to pieces for looks, you guys need to wake up and stop being so desperate. Just enjoy the game and stop trying to compare it to UC2, there is no equal.
I cant wait for this game either but lets not compare the 360 version to uncharted 2.
It looks pretty close. Whose to say which one looks better? They have different art styles and different graphical approaches. Of course PS3 fans will say Uncharted 2 looks better, but I don't think you can directly compare them.
have too say im impressed
ME is a buy game for me on the PC and I do own a 360 Comparing it to UC2...you just pubically embarrassed yourself. Sure is ok to be a fan, but a come on have some self respect
Uncharted 2 gaphic is way overrated, its good looking game not the best but diffently one of the best. people who says uncharted 2 is graphicly far better than other games should play more games...
but it certainly came close, very close to it. from what i observed, me2 has more jaggies, some low-res textures as well as occassional but not severe framerate drop, but if it wasn't for that it would have been neck-to-neck with uc2.
Anyone who has played UC2 knows that ME2 cant even hold a candle against Uncharted ONE, let alone UC2.
If it surpassed UC2 in graphics, the critics would've said so already... They haven't. Animation is exactly around where Dragon Ages is, meaning not fully mo-capped, with lot of standard gross animations. Particle effects, fire, and explosion aren't even on par with Bioshocks. Texture detail on characters is where this game shines and it proves why more work is done these days to character models than anything else in the game. Voice work is about Dragon Age's level of quality. I love Bioware games and plan to get this title, but let's not kid ourselves on where a Bioware game shines. It is for the great dialogue, character development, plotlines, and branched choices/endings that make Bioware games surpass 99% of the titles out there.
Some downplay ME2's level of detail graphics but they never show comparison pic's, real quick I just put up some from IGN, gametrailer vid: -Screens: http://ps3.ign.com/dor/obje... http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/... http://ps3.ign.com/dor/obje... http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/... http://ps3.ign.com/dor/obje... http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/... -Video: http://www.gametrailers.com... http://www.gametrailers.com... The proof is right here in the pudding, *Note click on ME2 pic's to see the insane amount of detail in the charachters, ME2 looks slightly sharper and more realistic compared to UC2, but in fairness that has alot to do with the settings and art style still ME2's graphics are a bit more polished imo, although UC2's animation is more fluid but either way there's no way anybody in their right mind can't say they both don't look amazing, its clear that both have so much quality and detail packed in that picking which is better comes down completely to personal preference. JOY
That looks the most graphically impressive game i have seen. Astonishing well done bioware, EA and Microsoft.
But I can think of plenty of games with better graphics. Anyhow, I'm buying it for the story and gameplay.
Tesselation 360, i believe you want it to look like the best graphics you have seen but the reality is different.
changed it to my ass if that's easier, basically the 360 is not maxed out, in fact I think it is just getting started as of 2010.
No way the 360 is maxed out...Mass Effect 2 looks a lot better than the first one and other games like Alan Wake and Halo Reach also look simply amazing which proves games are looking better and better on the 360.
Take a wild guess who made claims that the Xbox360 was maxed out? Its the same type of people who bagged on Killzone 2 when it luanched saying it still did not look great and sucked. Answer: Fanboys of the console they do not own.
Why does a console have to be maxed out to produce better graphics? Why could it not be that Bioware got more efficient and/or improved on the old engine, etc.? If that is the case, they wouldn't have a need to tax the system resources much more than they originally did, now would they? Also, no one claimed that ME1 maxed out the 360, so it is foolish to look at the second installment and make a rebuttal on the merits of ME2 being greater than ME1. ME2 SHOULD be better by default... lmao. Some of the fanboy is eeking out of the usual cats here. And to claim the game is on par with KZ2 and or UC2 is crazy since those games released on what 360 fans swore up and down was on an inferior console that had a 1 year late start to the party. Sits back, whistles and awaits God of War 3.
ill buy it when it comes down in price possibly 10 bucks, yeah i know im a cheap bastard but times are tough for me.
Don't blame you times are tough, but hey at least you'll get it and I wouldn't say cheap bastard. Just someone with other financial expenses, though it will be quite a wait before it comes down. Best bet is probably a used when it hits.
PC version is $10 cheaper to start with anyway?
Dont watch it cause ull get angry very very quickly. Only on Microsoft platforms and my beloved 360 :)
I'm playing it on my Sony Vaio Laptop... :) Just downloaded the torrent yesterday. :)
glad to hear sony will allways need Microsoft OS. Just goes to show how MS have a good foothold on sony lol. Must be hard for the droids to accept. Must be even harder to accept what is coming in the reviews. Happy year ahead too bad for sony its gonna be a bit of a downer for them again. @Omar: Hey man at least your should have the decency to buy the game for your laptop. PC games are cheaper then PS3 games to buy ohhh i forgot droids dont buy games they just bluff about them.
I always knew many ps3 fanboys were liars and thieves...thanks for proving that once again.
OMG, he is such a Sony fanboy that he has to buy everything Sony. Sad.
OmarJA-N4G no you didn't, you don't have a PC you use the PS3 to troll 360 news. BTW there are no Mass Effect 2 PC torrents... you just got caught. Your Sony VAIO have Vista or Windows 7?
Blew My Mind
Desperation and no games this year for droids.
When I can get my hands on a ME2 torrent I'll play it on my custom PC with Linux installed.
Cant even hold a candle against the weakest PS3 exclusive games, xbots. Thats how sad you bots have become.
Can't...watch...no, hand, no dont...click...play...dammit!!
lol leaked,its been streamd on jtv for days now. its the place to stream all the goodness lol
lol Tesselation owned OMAR hard.. pure damage control!
lol this is an epic masterpeace.. i have watched it.. extremly spoilers but DAMN.. WTF IS THAT??? OMG pure action!
i watched the vid.. many spoilers.. but its an epic masterpiece.. THIS IS how a game should look! Incredible graphics.. Pure Action
This game looks as good as uncharted 2.. the characters look even more realistic. Abolutely incredible! 360 is maxed out? lol
I guess we can all dream. :)
Hahah MGS4 looks miles better than this crap.
lol, talk about delusional.
that looks awesome. i cant wait!!!!
I'm going to be honest and say it looks slightly better than Uncharted 1 but Uncharted 2? IN YOUR DREAMS Congratulations on finally being able to outperform a PS3 exclusive. Took you over 2 years... but remember the technology inside the 360 and PS3 are worlds apart ;) Let's put it this way. BOTS you do know the milky way, don't cha? Can't be that retarded can you. By the time a new 360 game comes out you'll be on Mars and we'll be on Pluto. You'll never reach us =p
Damn i couldn't resist and watched it......should of waited to play the game lol
has anyone played it? how does it compare to other games graphically?
The game is obviously very well done , but something is often forgotten in some the today's claims about uncharted 2 . Most of the mass effect action is usually in futuristic but metallic places , such as big rooms and corridor , with hardly as much details and life than Uncharted 2 . The exterior and few and rare , if the second game follow ME1's one trend , and rarely the same lush and detailed rain forest and jungle . But i'd say it at least blows RE5 away and easily , till now the best looking multiplatform game .
I promised i wouldn`t look......8( I failed...............sigh.
still not looking :p . Had enough with trailers .
one more week! i gotta finish off my renegade engineer playthrough on ME1 to kill time.
i heard that you cant have scars on your face in this one
I gotta say. It looks damn good. UC2 barely keeps the crown in imho, but wow. Did anyone else just watch that. Crazy graphics. Cant wait to play it
Damn bloody epic game! Who were the people saying the Xbox360 was maxxed out? Who were the people saying this pales in comparison to U2 and Killzone 2? This game visually is right on par with them and this game is open world and massive and not as linear. That alone is an amazing feat. So much for the talk of the Xbox being maxed out. I will still get this for my PC and see how this sucker runs at 2560x1600 with forced AA.
LOL @ the comparisons to UC2. Heroin addicts will always agree with each other.
Bioware has outdone themselves. It looks really good and its a sci-fi action RPG which is something I wish Sony had something similar on the PS3 or this game. As for it being on par with KZ2 and UC2, I disagree. Hard to tell from a low res youtube video but for me what stands out the most are the facial textures and lighting. That and the facial animations, in UC2 the facial movements and animations are so lifelike...in this the characters do not have believable facial movement especially when they talk. And yes metallic environments have much less detail than the wartorn city level in Nepal or the jungles where things are growing everywhere and you need so many different individual pieces and textures. But I am just nitpicking here. Not trying to flame just giving my observations on what I have seen so far. Again, this game is 1 I am most definitely jealous of and I hope that it makes its way to the PS3 someday soon. Well done Bioware, for pushing the old girl (360 hardware) as far as she can go....well done indeed. This game to me has approached UC1 graphics for sure. (again not sure about the facial animations) GOW3 in March and HR in Feb. have raised the UC2 bar so UC2 is IMO no longer the benchmark game for the PS3. The benchmark games for PS3 will continue to outdo themselves for at least a year or 2 more. Kaplaa Bioware
Haha, I dont know what to do...I have a ps3 and am already going to spend at least 200 on games this year, god of war III, FFXIII, GT5, but now i'm considering getting an xbox 360 for this and splinter cell conviction, I loved mass effect on the pc, and that'll be another 400 dollars....what to do, what to do...
seem to borrow a bit of plot from chuck from the looks of it. heck, aside from chuck himself, they got 2 of the actors that played sarah and casey to be in me2. just take a look here: prothean beacon = intersect shepard = chuck = human intersect miranda (watch this trailer at the start) = sarah = guardian angel of shepard / chuck i love the chuck tv series, and love me2 even more!
yo i just watched that and i wish i didnt god i need a delorean and 88mph so i can fast forward my life lol .....Graphics and voice work are bonkers ohhhh man my life is done
Well done bioware, I might have to pick up a 360 for this.
WOW!!!!!!!!!!! amazing i'm getting this game and a 360 omg just WOW!!!!!! I read about it and it sound interesting but didnt know it looks this good and now i just want to play it!!!!!!!!!! i have to put my ps3 aside till gowIII.
