    This isn't enough to jump to conclusions or make assumptions. We need some videos. VIDEOS!

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    The video that was shown at Gamescom is the same one that's on Trion's site right now so...yeah, we're gonna have to wait for more!

    At the very least we should see some UI. A screen shot without a UI isnt "in-game" and means nothing to actual gamers.

    I think they hide the UI for a long time on purpose. It's there, they just don't want anyone seeing it. I guess it makes the in game footage and images look more cinematic. Plus the UI is something that can change dramatically close to the release date.

    Being an "actual gamer" myself, I take umbrage at that statement. :P

    Whether or not the UI is included in the screenshot doesn't render it any less an "in game" image. As Lizardbone said, the UI is the most mercurial feature in any game and it changes a LOT between early iterations of the game and further on in development.

    I don't know why, but your post makes me laugh. I get an image of a person with messy hair just waking up all wild eyed and crazy. :-)

    I agree it does look rather bad and I assume it will not become a graphicaly awsome game, but I think we can assume that these are images from a early game and will at least improve somewhat.

    I agree.  The more footage, the better.  Marketing (talk, random screenshots) doesn't get me excited about most PC games and especially MMOs anymore.  I love great graphics and story, but if the game doesn't play well, it doesn't matter.

    If you don't worry about it, it's not a problem.

    Well, remember this is also being developed for consoles, so expect some heavy restrictions.

    For those who don't know, the hype about this game is that there will be a TV show based on the game world, as in, player actions should theorically have some impact on how the show develops or at least vice-versa.

       No doubt...im sure with the money pot there (Trion and Syfy channel) we should see if nothing else a very pretty game.  Some might not agree, but I liked rift so if this is anything like it...it will pull atleast 6 months of my money out of my wallet :)

    At this point I could literally care less if it looks like Baldur's Gate as long as it's a fun and original experience.

    damn... disappointed, their syfy game was suppose to tie-in to a tv series... still might but the graphics are a little iffy. At one point it was lead to believe the actions of gamers would alter the tv show... from these images I'm picturing halo... not an immersive show changer.

    Anyone call this a WoW clone yet? If not, I call first dibs! 

     

    This game is such a WoW clone!

     

    Can I join the intellectual elite now that I came up such a profound description of the game?

     No because you have a signature image of a WoW clone.

    I could careless about the scy-fy tie in,what I am interested in is the shooter mmo part and if they make that part play good then I dont mind the graphics.Besides this game isnt even in alpha stages is it?And yet some are posting such negativity here lol.Whether you liked Rift or not the game released pretty smooth and hope this one does as well.

    Oh the irony.  Your statement is a conclusion based on a personal assumption that you jumped to rather quickly...

    as far as you would like to belive the rumours going around in the business lounge on the gamescom defiance will release q4 2012.

    and if i'm correctly informed they are not planning on adding ingame footage to the tv-serie, its the story which is important. this game is about an alien invasion on earth and when a corporation/guild does make a significant move against the aliens in f.e. freeing a town or win a minor battle it will have influence on the tv show. maybe even the corporation or special players will be named in this show. in return the content of the weekly tv show will have an impact on the game. maybe you get a patch after every show which adapt the global storyline.

    well, its really too early to asume anything and as others stated before: lets wait and see.

    Hope it's not the general run-of-the-mill, tv show or not.
