Also has anyone noticed that the unnamed guy with the black leather jacket looks a lot like Mark-Paul Gosselaar. You might know him as zach from saved by the bell.

if it's not him, we'll hear from him demanding some compensation for using his "likeliness" without permission lol.

Pretty shocked that the game isn't getting some air time at E3. It does look good though based on that small amount of footage, and I'll always love me some Remedy... so yeah, maybe I'll purchase me an Xbox One at some point next year when this comes out.
I'm a bit confused about that as well. The gamescom conferences are usually a lot smaller than their E3 counterparts. You'd think they put this on the greatest stage possible.

Maybe they'll do some "All the games we show today will release in 2014" shtick at E3

Graphics look excellent. The only similar playing game on consoles with better graphics thus far is probably the Order.

Quantum Break definitely looks like it has a more advanced version of the 'every light is a volumetric light' engine from Alan Wake.

For instance if you look at this screen:



The muzzle flash from the guy hiding behind the crate in the background looks like a volumetric light.
Yeah, it really seems like it.

Some tidbits showing a big city on the background when Sam lake is talking also looks like their open world engine, even if they are still using it to deliver a linear experience again.

You mean the Main Character? His name is Jack Joyce played by Phil Spencer

Looks as good as the best looking games seen so far. Cinematic is a word remedy never uses, I don't like them using it now. The character looks like a super hero in this and remedy's gun play is some of the best so I want it.

The game has a stylized look and a stylized shader similar to Metal Gear 5. Just glad this is another game that isn't trying to hide that the look of the game is stylized.

Maybe I need to see more, but my first impression based on the screenshots is that the game doesn't... look... that good? It looks pretty nice, but the chromatic aberration and fucked up foliage and weird inconsistent AA and blurriness really looks ugly to me, especially in this shot:

The "film grain" also makes it look like a magazine scan to me and less like an actual film.


EDIT: I think it's less film grain and more some bizarre dithering that reminds me of PSP screenshots.

This has really "ruined" the game for me actually. I can't see anyone but him now, and I just giggle that it's like his secret plan to be in every game now that he's head of xbox.

The time freezing mechanic looks so cool. I really want to see what the moment to moment gameplay looks like.

I'm really worried about the TV show part of this though. If it's executed poorly it could really mess up what is otherwise a great game.

Game isn't looking too hot from a technical perspective but I'm intrigued about the gameplay and the animation looks really smooth.

I mean to say as far as that original demo compares the lighting seems to have taken a massive downgrade, the image quality and perhaps even the models too. Sorry if that wasn't clear.
What? The lighting situation in the original trailer was different. That trailer had more intense like and a lot of mirrors reflecting things. A scene like that is going to look impressive on the lighting front.

I think the screenshots are not great. The stuff in-motion looks a lot better though.

The grain, aliasing and CA do these shots no favours.

Subbed.

I'm so happy Sam Lake stayed with Remedy.

I love his writing styles when it comes to narrative driven games.

Plus, this looks very stylized.
 
Okay since this is directly from Microsoft's website and listed as posted by their staff, I'm reverting the title.

Halo
The Order
Uncharted
maybe Zelda

This why I could never own one console it's impossible
Holy shit, couple that with The Witcher 3, FFXV and possibly Beast Soul's and you're right, it could be a legendary year for gaming.

Really? I think people forget what the lighting actually looks like in those top tier games. QB isn't quite there yet. Just a quick rough comparison.


Anyway, different strokes.
Yeah. Maybe I need to have another look at those games.

Perhaps a comparison to another non-open world, 2015 title like The Order would be more apt.
I would bet that the play areas in this are much bigger than The Order and Ryse. Pictures look like they will have big play areas like they did in Alan Wake.

The original trailer wasn't running in real-time and never will. I'd put it, just comparing the graphics, between Watch Dogs and inFAMOUS: SS, leaning more to the former.

2015 release date was expected.

Yea, I wouldn't have imagined all media pitting it as a 2014 title on just a whim, at least not every single media publication out there. I've noticed that generally, some of the outlets just put TBA and do not assign a year unless they have some sort of information or understanding otherwise.
