The first screen looks nice, the second one not so much.

:/
 

Yoshichan

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

It will look gorgeous in game, I would assume. You can't zoom in this much ingame.

EDIT: Wait a second, for SOME reason I thought this was Dungeon Siege III... n/m -_-

Coming soon on Nintendo 64?

Kidding. These are probably alpha or pre-alpha screens and should be considered as much. Also, if the game has as much content as the original, you can see why they would need to tone down the graphics a bit.

Of course, if this game is going to pull a Mass Effect 2 and get all railroad on us, I hope for much better graphics by the time of release.

I know it's just because the armour is made of flat panels but all those pointy triangles making up the legs and arms made me think it was Die by the Sword.

Yeah I thought Bioware claimed this was going to be a big upgrade over the first one graphically?

You can say you're kidding, but I still want to punch you.

I really don't like the look of the main character at all. (to be fair, not a fan of the Dragon Age style and setting at all either)


Garret (The Witcher) looks so much more badass in either of his games

The Hawke character looks okay, but the rest is downright nasty.

This shit is lame.

Looks same as the original PC version to me, textures are same quality at least, Lighting is somehow bland and bad overall IMO,

Why even release these empty, early shots?

Thankfully at least folks will be smart enough to realize the final version will obviously look a lot better, as this looks worse than the original by a gigantic clip at the moment.

*reads thread*

Well, maybe they won't.
