To each his own;
I\'ve been watching TechTV .. And these are a few of the games I\'ve managed to take a glimpse @.
Halo - Sue me, it looked ok. Not only was the framerate @ 30 (we all know the arguments) but it also dropped from time to time. Disappointing for me, and I never cared for Halo.
Luigi\'s Mansion - Saw it for like 30 seconds maybe? .. Looked nice. Again, I wasn\'t blown away, but the lighting was amazing. I just wonder how fun sucking ghosts into a vacuum is gonna be. The rooms in the mansion have lots of little detail and look very promising.
Jak and Dakster - They showed it briefly, for like 20 seconds if anything.. and despite what all you haters out there say, this game looks nice. The enviroments are huge and have tons of stuff going on. Framerate is 60 w/o a hitch, and the character animations are very smooth. Lighting looked great as well. Can\'t comment much on the textures, what they showed looked dark and not very vivid.
FFX - They had an interview with a representative from Square.. during the little talk she was playing FFX, and it too looked great. Nothing really that we haven\'t seen already. The transition to battles looked kinda neat, and it didn\'t take long @ all to load. The screen shatters as the battle starts.. and from what I can tell the game is running @ a lovely 60fps.
They showed a few summons and that\'s about it. Can\'t really comment too much.
The point of my post was that people are dissing Jak and Dakster when I think the game looks damn nice. I was working yesterday and I didn\'t even know TechTV was covering E3 (doh!) ... I didn\'t work today so luckilly I can watch and tape whatever they show of e3 today. The show begins like in 4 hrs so I can\'t wait to watch.
I\'ll post some impressions later of whatever they show. They just showed Abe (for xbox) -- right now -- looked good.
(60fps too) Incase you haven\'t noticed framerate
is very important to me.
- the trick is to keep breathing.
