Wurm said:I have to assume Wii-only owners have undergone some form of Pavlovian conditioning at this point. This game wouldnt even look impressive for a PS2 game, as evidenced already by the SotC shots in this thread. The PS2's graphical finest such as MGS3, KH2, ZOE, FF12, DMC3... these are the games from the hardware generation even before the Xbox and Gamecube. Have expectations been SO lowered by lazy Wii devs that any effort at all is applauded?
I also assume that because it resembles SotC's hideous and retarded colour-blind cousin, its a case of positive association going on.
Oxymoron, unless of course you're counting all the shovelware games. (But then it's really an unnecessarily obvious statement as in general, any non-shovelware game on any system > any shovelware game on that system.)Dever said:Can't really say it looks great because it reminds of SotC too much, a last-gen game that looks much better. One of the better looking Wii games though I suppose. Hopefully it's great.
seems that it is partly static, at least on individual objects. but note that the background in the different areas isn't the same. need to see videos really.abstract alien said:Im wondering if the filter that they are using(if thats what it is), is stagnant, or if it moves or flows a certain way.
What the hell is it with the Wii and promising-looking RPGs from non-traditional developers all of a sudden?

Game looks unreal, can't wait.
Even if it becomes a cult hit it's a pretty large cult. They can't afford the same risks on the 360 or PS3.Gwanatu T said:Developers are finally starting to see the NPD numbers roll in.

this is cell shading. and the pencil strokes overlay is technically the same as the parchment technique known (and bemoaned) from okami.agrajag said:Well that's not cool. It's just a cheap overlay then, I can imagine this getting annoying very quickly. It'd be much better if it was something similar to cel-shading, but I'd imagine that'd be very tasking on the hardware.
Nice screen comparisons. Yeah, we need some vids, but a static filter wouldnt be all that bad, the ps2 version of okami had the static paper in the background, although it was much more subtle(if i remember correctly).ImNotLikeThem said:seems that it is partly static, at least on individual objects. but note that the background in the different areas isn't the same. need to see videos really.
Ugh...when will early gaming conventions just die? "QUADRUPLE COMBO!!! 20 POINTS!" "7 COMBO!!! GOOD!!!"
I mean seriously, is this really necessary? Can't the enemies just die when you kill them, and that can be the reward? And the HUD...why? Just get rid of those items, I'm sure you can figure out some way to demonstrate the player's health in a manner other than a bar--this is 2008. Also, people aren't equipped with radars, get rid of it. Targeting reticles on a sword fighter? How about not?
Yeah, I'm serious. The reticle could very easily be worked into the theme (an insect or butterfly or fairy?) And all that other crap all over the screen is ugly and distracting.bdouble said:are you being serious? Pretty sure the reticule has a lot to do with the IR pointing on the Wiimote. So how about necessary for the gameplay. Combos? Yeah I like to know what I'm doing.
As for the other things they have nothing to do with the time period we are in. More to do with the way of giving feedback to the player. Yeah sometimes its easy to do this without a HUD or pop upu combo meeter but I don't see any bright lights on the characters back to display his power suits armor.
