I seen the trailer on kotaku and at first I was bored thinking bah another cinematic. Then I was like wait a second, their cinematics look better than this. This is gameplay. Then I was freakin wowed at home amazing it looks and I literally thought it was a cinematic for a few moments.

Shade_MG
05-07-2012, 06:58 PM
Looking at the meter my guess is its not 'live' and doesn't update straight away when people post. I think it's most likely on a timer and will update at predetermined intervals . (every 20, 30 minutes?)

No, they shouldn't show that at all. Mainly because we are on the side of the colonials and the ones that we do kill would mean that they are traitor/templars. So they shouldn't reveal that in a trailer, unless it's just a random soldier in blue and it has no part in the actual game.

We are probably gonna be able to kill random Colonists and Redcoats in the open world, so why not show Connor killing both side's random soldiers.

We actually are fighting more on the American side because the assassins believe in what they are doing. That's also why we're helping George Washington and not the other side really. I'm not saying we aren't going to kill any colonist either, but the ones we do kill will probably be traitors and templars.

WOW, no duh they've said that. But seeing how they've only shown Connor kill red coats, working with George Washington and the assassin's believe in the Colonist concept of freeing themselves. If Connor would take jobs from redcoats, normal redcoats then not only would he be seen as an enemy by George Washington but also most of the Assassin Brotherhood.

but we'll see when the game comes out, either i'm wrong or you are :P. the game will be enjoyable either way

Actually he believes in Justice and FREEDOM!! Sorry, couldn't resist, anyway, He wants freedom and justice, which is what the Assassins want, but when you think about it, Ezio could kill the Medici guards in AC2, even thought they were Lorenzo's guards, so why not have Connor kill colonists? Sorry if I'm coming off as argumentative.

hmmm... I remember that, i could see that although he was on a mission on his own. His actions were only for himself, while Connor's actions would be for not only his people but the colonist that are being mistreated and the assassins. So it would be very iffy if he was taking orders from both sides, but if they do it right then it'll be interesting. Lets see what they do in October, and when we play and beat the game i'll bring up this discussion again :P hah

Well mainly because the AI in AC2 wasn't that great so that's why we could kill them :P. but seriously, that was a part in a whole game. Nothing really that big, while in AC3 most colonist that were fighting for freedom so then by Connor killing them he would be a templar. So that wouldn't work :P

You do know the best way to unlock it is to really share with your friends?

the more word spreads, the quicker it will unlock.. You tell 3 people, they each then tell another 3 etc etc...

It also shares the videos with more people, so they also get to see the awesomenesssauce...

Yeah, they did the same thing for the Revelations reveal last year, but it was hosted through Facebook. It was pretty much the same thing as this year, though it seems like the payoff of a gameplay video will be much better this year. It definitely acted strange last year. The progress would hardly move at all during waking hours in the U.S. timezones, then the next morning it would have gone up like 25% sometimes. Then it would barely creep along again. I was always suspicious of whether the meter was really measuring anything towards the unlock because it ended up being completed around noon on a Thursday and revealing that Revelations was the cover story for the upcoming issue of Game Informer. That just happens to be the day and time they always reveal the upcoming issue, which was awfully convenient...

Just to remind you guys of what happened last year with revelations; they manipulated the counter both back AND forth to release it whenever they **** well pleased (especially near the end, to squeeze the last drop of PR out of us). They will release it whenever they want.

Also, its bound to be faster at the beginning, since thats all the HC/AC-fans.

Just so you don't go in the same trap as me, and get disappointed when your calculations doesn't come true.

I'm pretty sure now that regardless of our actions, the gameplay will be released on Friday or in the weekend at the latest. Stuff like this usually gets released on Fridays and they were probably planning on it from the start.

I do wonder whart we'll get at E3 now. Mr_Shade confirmed this new gameplay footage won't be the "bear assassination" that Esco and a few others saw earlier this year. They probably won't show the Bunker Hill demo at E3 considering how many people already saw it at Pax East. So this gameplay vid might be the Bunker Hill demo from Pax and we'll get something totally new at E3.

I would like that better, but knowing them, it'll just be the public release of the demo. Either way, yes, the counter is moving backwards, at whatever speed they want. It was almost at 8 notches, with 7 filled last time I checked, and then I saw everybody posting that it went down to 6. There are still only 6 notches filled, but the meter itself is almost up to 8. It almost looks as if the meter is where we are in votes, and the notches are Ubisoft's planned progression.

of course, it's finally better then AC1. I always thought AC1 looked better then AC2, and Brotherhood and sometimes better then ACR. But now i'd say AC3 looks like it's on it's own level. But i'd have to see the game in action to completely believe it HAS the best graphics.

To be honest, I wasn't terribly impressed with the graphics in the teaser. It could just be the close-ups and the game will look a lot better in action. The textures or trees don't look as realistic as I had hoped. The facial animations were great, but that's about all I have to say until I see more.

For me Killzone 3 has nice graphics but the story wasn't as interesting as Killzone 2 (also KZ3 was short too lol)
also I may get flamed for this but, honestly ( don't get me wrong, I LOVE the Uncharted games) I kind of felt Uncharted 3 was slightly weaker in story to uncharted 2. also graphic wise, the charcaters seemed more...'cartoony' compared to UC2...but I guess it's because UC3 can enable Steroscope 3D (like KZ3).Then again UC2 set a really high bar for Naughty Dog so I suppose I can see that. Still good game though ;)

I think the Uncharted franchise is really good. Story wise its awesome. Graphics wise also awesome.
But, U3 was pretty short. But with more big events. Such as: big explosions and big twists to the story. I like big explosions. but it was a bit overdone. Naughty Dog focused on gameplay Elements too much, so they forgot the story.

To me, U2 was a perfect game. It didn't have too much ''Explosions'' and didn't have too much ''story''.

Graphics aren't the most important thing, obviously. The graphics have been improving with each new entry in the series. The reason I'm a bit disappointed with the teaser is because the graphics don't look all that different from those in ACR while Ubisoft is obviously proud enough of the new AnvilNext engine to mention it in the teaser. If the engine is truly as revolutionary as they claim, I would expect the graphics to really blow me away, which so far they haven't. Up-close Connor's walk still looks a bit twitchy, the textures are lacking and the snow doesn't move realistically underneath the soldier as he crawls. I know the story will be most important, but for a game that the devs claim is trying to "look next-gen on current-gen systems", they still have a lot to prove.

Totally agree with you, i was expecting more to be honest. It actually looks almost ACR quality (and actually graphically wise it is good) but with a brand new engine as big as it is, i was expecting a major step up. I think graphcis are esssential to making the game a polished experience, it sets very good games from good ones.

Graphics are not just all about pretty images, but also about what it can run too. Although I'm no tech expert, I know you can't realistically expect this game to look mind-blowingly amazing and have thousands of detailed characters at the same time. It's just not possible, especially with current gen console tech. If they did try to make the game prettier than it already is, the game would probably have to sacrifice many game-play elements. Just look at Prototype 2, and look how much draw distance they had to sacrifice in order to make the game look prettier. I for one, am glad that the game looks as good as it does, with all that it is able to run, as it does now.

And, as I said, ACīs magic is not about its graphics, but the gameplay and story, I understand that the free roam/climb almost everything non linear gameplay substantially reduces the possibility of having astonishing graphics, mostly on consoles. However you just cant say that the snow mechanics and textures are good, at least on that teaser.

Sure, but this is all we have to go on right now. If we're not talking about the teaser, what else is there to complain about? ;)

Obviously one little teaser is no indication of how the game will ultimately look, especially with 5 more months to go until release. The video that someone posted comparing the snow in Uncharted 2 is a good comparison though. The snow looked amazing in that game and from the hype I was expecting AC3 to at least bring quality of that calibre. I know we're talking about a linear game vs. an open world game so perhaps it wasn't a fair expectation. But the hype machine has been comparing AC3 with Uncharted inregards to many other things like the character movements. We should also be able to compare other aspects of the two series. UC2 came out in the same year as AC2 and already beat it in terms of graphics back then. Now it's looking like (in some aspects at least) it might still look better than AC3, 3 years down the line.

Mr_Shade
05-08-2012, 09:22 PM
Well you have to remember that uncharted is a very different game with it having much smaller sections of area to explore, so more resources can be put aside for certain effects.

ACIII has an open world, animals and other things wandering around... And snow does play more of a part than just deforming under foot, it's used to track and also hampers your walking in deep snow..

Hopefully the slight differences in snow will not affect people's enjoyment of the game..

As to the hype machine comparing the two games - I must have missed that official post - since tbh the games are nothing alike - apart from both having great animations ;)

I for one, am glad that the game looks as good as it does, with all that it is able to run, as it does now.

But Prototype 2 barely looks any different from it's predecessor. They even re-used animations. They only difference is that Prototype 2 has slightly higher-res textures.

As to the hype machine comparing the two games - I must have missed that official post - since tbh the games are nothing alike - apart from both having great animations ;)

I was talking about all the various game sites working with Ubisoft to promote the game - like GameInformer, GameTrailers etc. - , not an official statement from Ubisoft. For months all these sites have been raving about how this is the BEST LOOKING GAME EVAR!!!1 and now we finally have a teaser to look at, it's like: "... ehh, looks all right".

I'm not saying I'll let one thing hamper my enjoyment of the game, just that from where I stand, it's looking more and more like the hype surrounding the graphics has been exaggerated. But we'll see.

The snow texture on the Redcoat's jacket was the only instance of poor texturing (by console standards) in the whole trailer. The snow itself is actually some of the best I've seen in video games. Even the snow in Uncharted 2 was simply a texture on the ground.

honestly i didn't care if i was going to see gameplay before e3, i was fine waiting. Now that they are teasing us id rather have them show us :). but as for the meter itself is giving us something to talk about, that's a negative to me. The people talking are more or less just referring to how the meter sucks or how they don't like this type of marketing. It would be better to talk about the gameplay when we see it not a bar that moves slowly.

and i'm pretty sure everyone on this page is calm, this isn't PAX. no one is pissed or anything, they just wish that the bar would move faster or they were debating when the bar would be full

side note: this gameplay we're suppose to be getting better be more then just 2 minutes or i'm just going to feel let down haha

Well, You are a minority of people who didnt care for gameplay before E3, and the poeple who say that the meter sucks just dont see the bigger picture, with all due respect..
and regarding your expectation for the gameplay being more than 2 minutes then do not go blaming Ubisoft when its less, because you expected something that you were never promised..

yea i know that i am, mainly because i'm not obsessing over AC3 anymore :p. I'm just going to wait to see what comes out when it comes out, but i can still get a little excited.
Well if you're referring to bigger picture as in it builds up anticipation for those that are looking at it then there is no bigger picture. However, if you are referring to the bigger picture by Ubisoft's marketing strategy buy using potential consumers to market their project then i can say that their plan is smart. However, there are issues when it comes with it.
Not saying i'll blame Ubisoft, but for all the hype and if it's gameplay, i'm expecting something around 3 minutes. That is if it is gameplay (completely gameplay).

I hope you're joking, because Metal Gear Solid games have had some of the best graphics for each respective generation.
MGS1 was amazing for the time it was released, MGS2 and MGS3 are definitely in the TOP 10 somewhere (MGS3 IMO is the best looking PS2 game ever) and MGS4 had the best graphics on the PS3 for a year, and it still holds high up in the ranks.

GLHS
05-09-2012, 04:48 AM
Yeah, I would agree with this ^

MGS4 definitely looks dated, but there are certain things in respect to detail and texturing that are STILL better than most games out there, and that was one of the earliest PS3 games. It really was ahead of it's time, and the fact that it still holds up without looking super old is astonishing. I can honestly say that playing the game now (within the last year), I am still impressed by certain things and the cutscenes are still bar-none.

masterfenix2009

MGS4 has some amazing graphics, especially for something created in 2008. If you played it recently, it might not look as good as Uncharted 3 or 2, so I can understand that, but there's no way in hell it's horrible, bad or decent. It's great. It's easily noticeable just like how great the story is..

Yes and you should share it with me because I do say they release it on friday too! They mostly do it this way, a countdown based on numbers, but actually it's based on time :p.
Thursday we'll be 4 dots away and friday we'll get there.

On topic: I'm actually quite impressed with the graphics and I do agree with some people, for example the snow should indeed look more "powder-ish", but there is still some time left to improve the game. Even then I'd like that they focused more on perfecting the story than graphics. ACR had some holes in it :p

Even then I'd like that they focused more on perfecting the story than graphics. ACR had some holes in it :p

ACR didn't really have many holes to the story, it was just too short and I felt that Ezio was too detached from the Assassins, aside from the Apprentices he had and the Dens. He knew too little about the struggle of power in the city, and his involvement with the Romani, Mercenaries and Thieves was too minimal. It gave the impression of "Everything is cool, you're not needed here."

Because of that, there was potential for gameplay ignored.

I also agree that they need to work on the snow physics, because as others have said, the balance between the solidness of it and the powderishness of it isn't quite right. I also believe that they need to improve on the visual aspect of how snow sticks to clothing, because it looks very obvious that they're treating it like they have done with blood in previous games. Snow is not white liquid, it doesn't absorb into clothes like that, so they need to change how they're presenting it.

SixKeys
05-09-2012, 11:40 AM
I agree with Serrachio, think the way the snow sticks to the soldier's clothing is currently the biggest eye sore. The rest is okay, but the snow looking like white paint just completely destroys the illusion. It would help if they made it so that most of it is solid white but towards the edges of his clothing it dissolves into a soft gradient.

Either this is a built in physics upgrade or this is an early sign of a glitch, which I doubt, but when he fires the bow you see that the bow reverses in his hands, but the string attached is set up as if it was about to be fired. One would think that if the bow turns then the string should be in its respectful place, behind the bow. Especially after it has reversed....

You're right, I've watched it again and I'm surprised that they didn't notice that themselves. I think it's a glitch and it can rise some complaints... Even within a trailer there is a rather big error visible...Sad :(

Ezio was already planning to cut all ties with the Assassins, but wanted to make sure Constantinople was left in good hands when he left with Sofia. I guess everything in Revelations involved making as few relationships as possible while in Constantinople, only focusing on solving the Templar problem and finding the keys. That still does not excuse the game for being too short, even for completionists. The only extensive part of the game that could be done was training the assassins and doing the master assassin missions, while everything else felt "just there."
