Monolithsoft IS now considered a Nintendo company. The game doesn't look horrible by any means - though not as good as Xenosaga III. The models look better than in Baten Kaitos though.

I'm still not very convinced by this, but it's a good sign that they're showing more media for it now. It looks like a run of the mill survival action game from the early PS1 era where everyone was chasing in on RE clones honestly. The game seems to be split between adventure parts and action parts. In the adventure parts you find people to rescue them, explore the area, and avoid disaster spots, etc. In the action parts it's pretty much a gun shooting game, and it looks like it's on rails and in first person. The only times the character model appears in the gun shooting parts is when he's hiding behind a pillar and/or reloading.

Here are some interesting stuff I see in the menu screens:

- You can set where the radio messages and the gun sound fx comes out from. The screen shows the Radio messages output set to the Wiimote, and the Gun sound fx output set to the Wiimote as well.

- There are items in the game, and you have an inventory. They look like the normal restorative items for health and whatnot.

- The game is stage based and you get a ranking for how well you did at the end of each stage.

- You earn BP from combat and SP from rescueing people (and probably completing various QTE events successfully). BP is used to buy new weapons and upgrade the weapons, while SP is used to improve the character stats.

- You start with 3 basic weapons available - Rifle 1, Handgun 1 and Assault Rifle 1. Each of these are the start of a weapons tree, kinda like a skill tree in RPGs (lol Monolithsoft). You buy more weapons with BP via this tree.

- For weapons you already have, there are 5 areas you can upgrade them in - Power, ammo capacity, reload speed, etc. Upgrading will also cost BP.

- There are no screens for character stats upgrades, so I dunno what you can spend SP on.
thx duckroll - always comin with those nice news/informations :D
sounds nice :)

This does not look so good graphically, I thought they'd have improved it a lot over the months but ouch.

Still, concept is compelling will probably buy

Yeah, that once upon a time is mere months ago. Galaxy and Brawl look awesome, specially Galaxy, which in my book is one of the best looking games this generation.

It's easier to look past the mediocre graphics when seeing a pic like this.

That could be awesome in motion.

I'm a little saddened that Disaster seems to be stage-based with arcade gameplay, I guess the technical constraints meant an open world was not possible, or they were having difficulty integrating set-pieces into an open world.

I'll wait until I see gameplay footage before judging further, I hope this new media has only just emerged due to Nintendo's new strategy of saying little or nothing until 2 months before release, rather than because they are not confident in the quality of the title. Still looking forward to it for now, the main character's beard gives me hope.

Agreed. I'll also add much of the UI, which there is a lot of, looks interesting, as well as the aiming in-game pointer mechanism.

Heh, can't believe I've turned into a fan of unique, different control mechanism schemes. I know it is what the Wii was created for, what it is advertised for, but it is working and is a definite key is gaining my interest.

+1 interest!

You poor lil soul. . . to think that, one would have to have been struck pretty hard on the head.

Anyway, I want some higher rate pics and a trailer!

Not expecting those things to make this look like TP or anything but that site seems to have bumped down the pretty.

The gameplay I see seems really interesting.

. .This game seems to be one of those "tap on all things" games :D

Of course an open world wasn't possible. After all GTA4 is the first GTA with an open world...

I know pretty much everyone is complaining, but suddenly, after this batch of screens, the game has launched to the top of my waiting list.

I guess I'm compelled by the QTEs. :/

Looks pretty awful still. At least they seem to have upped the trees from their N64 level a bit :lol .

Still interested to see how they want to bring all these different elements together.

Lair looks great, it just plays very bad. :D

But you are wrong anyway. Because Nintendo owns 80% of Monolith. They are a first party developer, not a second party one like Factor 5 was on Lair.

What is even worse is that the bad graphics could have been due to the open world nature of the game. With a stage based game, there is no excuse.

...or perhaps that wasn't the intention of the developers at any stage? Wasn't the whole "wow, GTA with DISASTERS!" just got up by fans and bloggers based on the (very) limited info available?

Do you just chunk all your old consoles in the trash can with every new generation?

Yes, it was bullshit. This game was always meant to be action/adventure + QTE events.

Those screenshots came from the build that was to be released in July. We all know, the game was delayed due to quality issues or to optimize the quality(official reason at least).

I personally CANNOT wait for Nintendo to go HD.

Mario Galaxy and more are visual delights in SD. Imagine that world in HD. this game alng with others makes me wish HD was now with Nintendo purely to see what the real vision of this game was!

I wasn't hoping for anything along the lines of GTA, just more than a string of set-pieces and QTEs . Why so defensive over a few screens?

But they are OLD consoles. They are looking bad because they are OLD consoles. We have fond memories with this OLD consoles, that's why we keep them, and that's what keep us playing them even if the games look terrible.

But the Wii is not an OLD console. It is a new system, and an expensive one.

You know this for sure?

Well, when will there be "final build" screens"? :lol

I never expected much from the graphics, only the interesting gameplay concept so I don't really care.

I er, don't get how people think this looks awful. Maybe I need to check my eyes or something, because this looks quite fine to me. A bit better than before at least.

Like others said, I would like to see it in motion at least, it might look the absolute pits whilst moving.

Those were promo shots for the Japanese release. The game saves are from July 3rd and since Europe seems to get game first we probably would've got screenshots without Japanese text.

Furthermore, some screenshots are from this ad:

That's the stupidest reason I've ever heard...You should be playing games because they are fun to play, not because of worthless nostalgia...

All Wii/GC screencaps look like shit. This could look alright moving.

It's the actual game part I'm more worried about.
