There's no way you can watch either of them and not realize they are old CGI. Especially JPs daylight CG sequences.




Avatar 3D Blu Ray is lightyears ahead, and if anything will age better not worse than those movies. The movie is pure eye candy.

I am not saying it looks bad, and yeah, obviously its ahead, but the type of CG that Avatar does will age worse because there will be better stuff coming. Whereas in JP and ST it will continue to look good because it's "practical CGI" if you know what I mean, It's used where it needs to be (and yeah, ST has some bad bluescreen shots too).

edit: anyway, far too OT now ;)

Cyberpunk-GAF, what do you want to experience more with this teaser? Impressive visuals or awesome cyberpunky music? :) DE:HR trailer managed to have both.

Neither. The atmosphere is key with a game like this. Make me believe in the world basicallly.

Recent cyberpunk games haven't been grimey enough for my taste. The 'low life' sections still seemed fairly well kept (talking from a Deus Ex:HR perspective) compared to stuff in Blade Runner, for example.

I'd like some grime and a good ambient soundtrack.

Not like the end of the world if it's CG, I mostly just want to understand the art direction that they are taking for the project.

Hard Reset had some really grimey back alleys.

Too bad the levels were empty, no NPCs.

I think we can already see the direction with the concept art they released.

I guess I could make an extra category between in-engine and pure CG for target render CG that's styled to look like the end product.


But as people corrected me before, the first Witcher 2 trailer used in-game footage, so I'm hopeful.

I'm not expecting gameplay, nor disappointed with a lack of it at this point. I was just stating an opinion about telling a story in that manner, in general.

One of the best cyberpunk IPs of all time Ghost in the Shell is set in a world that has blue skies and nature that is preserved and lush. The centerpiece of every cyberpunk tale must be on technology that has changed the way we live and operate. The look [or existence] of the "grimey" urban environment really has no big impact to me.

I want to experience the connection between us and technology, see someone's mind transfer from one body to another, interrogate enemies in cyberspace by placing their emulated continuousness in more susceptible female bodies [see human consciousness operate in strange environment - female natural senses [nerve connections] can perceive more than males], see the hardships or happiness of people whose lives were impacted by technology that lives inside of them, debate about the legal rights of AI minds, see the cooperation between humans and artificial life forms, see the AI minds that are clearly better than ours, etc.... The place where all that is set is not really that relevant [IMO].

Well I think you've nailed it. The grime is just nature and urban decay reaching into cities. A sign of life.

With things like Mass Effect or DXHR where the enviroments are prestince Isolation of the natural world through technological prowess and nanoparticle-plywood then things feel out of balance. Grime is not mutually exclusive with a nice pretty blue day with some lush surroundings.

GITS has a little bit of everything visually.

I think that's the point, the city looks overgrown, inorganic and lively.

Of course it has day and night cycle. Night City is fictional town called that way because it sounds "cool" and "dark" and "violent" and "80s SF".

Ahh thanks for clarifying. There is so much unexplored in cyberpunk that it would be a shame if they just set the entire game at night.

I'd like them to explore different colour palettes using CP themes.

I'd rather them throw colour themeing completely out the window and just have things be a conglomerate just like real life. You get enough colour themes from the natural world anyways.

I too feel like Deus Ex was cyberpunk rather than pure sci-fi. I may be idiot but actually i didn't like so much DR:HR. I loved few things about it like jensen home design and few cutscenes, music and augumentations.

What i didn't like about it was lack of exploration. Sure there are almost always alternative way to objective but overall it was preatty safe and limited. Pheromones.

I mean first time i was playing deus ex i found under manhole whole scifi complex (after 1st mission) where i died shortly because i was underpowered. Whole minigame aproach to hacking and everthing was just bad.

Minigame is fun as long as it is optional and created to be game not task. When i want to hack computer i want to use skill or find password like in original DE not clicking fuking folders os time. Boss design was uber shit. Stealth was joke and there was 0 problem with ammo if you played stealth killing anyone with QTE.

Interesting opinion. I think I'm drawn to 'grime' in cyberpunk due to the overpopulation and lowered quality of life for the majority of people in the world (low life, high tech). Ghost in the shell certainly has it, I remember scenes where the task force invade some hideout in a shipping dock or something? Towards the end of the 2nd stand alone complex, anyway. In the same three episodes there is constant panning between high tech booths or vehicles that the 'upper class' have, and then the contrast with how most of the population lives. I love that sort of thing, and I felt the theme hasn't been prevalent enough in recent cyberpunk media.

Transhumanism certainly is involved in cyberpunk in a big way but for me the location is quite important.

edit: i think Vurt and Pollen, both books by Jeff Noon have zombies in them. Haven't read them in forever so I might be wrong. Vurt is still worth checking out though, for sure. Pollen, not so much. No idea about games, though.
