Screw Crysis 2, The Witcher is by far the best-looking PC game I've seen in a long time.
who's that ?
I must be the only one, but it doesn't look that great to me...
Yes, you are. Those screenshots are stunning. And apparently not doctored, according to reviewers.
Also, as pretty as those screenies are, they do seem to suffer from the Too Much Bloom Syndrome occasionally.
The bloom it kills my eyes.
Bloom syndrome is not exactly a sickness in every case. It's something like vaccine for "Not THAT good" textures and models. And I believe some of the game devs treat it that way
Anyway - Looking forward to play this game. I love The Witcher books and universe. Well, if you want REAL dark and low fantasy setting The Witcher is way to go. I didn't saw anything like it or even near it and believe me - I know many different low/dark fantasy worlds
I just wonder if CD Project guys can keep this feeling in Witcher 2 with such graphics and stuff.
Guys, TW2 looks great and all, but it's not anywhere close to Crytek's Playable Engine Tech Demo 2.
Bloomtech isn't makeup, models and texture details are pretty high. Someone's idea of purtay gfx. Still, screens are a bit doctored. Always are.
That said, it's still lookin' awesome, not to mention a much improved storyline and gameplay.
pesky gfx, always get in the way of a good storyline and all.
I don't know. Crytek's engine is awesome, no doubt about it, and I wouldn't mind getting my grubby paws all over it to make a few custom maps (their dev tools are amazing), but Crytek are pretty poor when it comes to art direction, certainly next to a team like CD Projekt, who managed to get some pretty great results out of old technology that still hold up well today. Crytek do have a lot of talent and a lot of potential, they've just never really shown it off, electing for generic super-soldiers and photorealism instead. They have improved a lot over the years, to be fair, and Crysis WARHEAD far surpassed the original as far as art went, but they still have a long ways to go.
I found what I've seen of Crysis 2 to be pretty much a miss as far as art direction goes, the urban setting was a bad idea as it's too generic, and overall the game suffers a lot from overboard bloom plus motion blur. Didn't get me quite as excited as shooting North Koreans in the jungle
TW2 certainly doesn't look better than Crysis 2 but could probably compete, especially since the quality of art direction makes up for where raw gfx power may fail.
Um, this link to the pictures is broken now?
Anyone else having problems with it?
True enough. One thing that particularly puts me off towards Crytek games is the 'fake' feeling of their lighting. It looks like it's set in Bavaria, not NYC.
As to TW2's tech, it isn't old. 'S based on a completely new engine, originally designed for the (now scrapped) TW3.
In all fairness, I think he means The Witcher, not the sequel; To wich I agree myself, by the way.
I can't wait until releaseday, been looking forward to this for a long time, a want wich certainly has'nt been quelled by DA2.
yes even today I think THe Witcher looks quite decent. Cant wait to see what the sequel will be like.
At the very least, I hope that we will not see those asshat retarded spikey-armors present in DA2, with more fluid and believable animations. Seeing the characters flail around with twohanded swords and metal shields like they were toothpicks annoys the living daylights out of me.
Apparently you can import your Witcher 1 save game, wonder what does that add to the game?
Oh and there be dragons.
Fuuuuuuu, really? I hope nothing significant, I don't want to go through TW1 again just for it.
As far as I know, it will alter the storyline a little bit based on what you have done in the first game. So it's kind of like Mass Effect.
Someone will probably make a save game editor just like the Mass Effect and Dragon Age ones, saves a lot of hassle playing through the first game again if you loose your saves.
