Love the lighting...


Water looks great...

Fight for your life! Damn I wish I could sail that ship in the background...


This one is a bit rough...


Really reminds me of an area in LOTRO



Decent shadow work

Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    O.o

    I think the character is on a beach... notice the creature's legs are also barely in the water...

    Granted I don't know if you can swim or not but I wouldn't assume you couldn't because of this screenshot... kinda silly to, don't you think?

    For me potentially +100 pts for not swimming in armour.

    The aesthetics of the game remind me of Morrowind, all the while looking as good as something I would expect coming out in 2013 (for an MMORPG).

    The only game that looks better is probably FFXIV A Realm Reborn, and maybe Guild Wars 2 on a super resolution monitor.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    Looks great so far, little concerned with the character creation, hope it's a robust system.

     

    But thanks for posting those screens!image

    Beatiful screenshots! The only things that I'm worried about are character faces. I certainly hope that we can make better looking characters oh man. O.o The faces in an unmodded Skyrim left a lot to be desired, so I certainly hope they've improved upon that.

    Be fair, most MMO gamers go through those motions ;)

    Besides, yeah I hyped SWTOR I suppose as I was very excited at the possibilities with a new Star Wars MMORPG - heck it was BIOWARE doing a STAR WARS MMORPG... who knew they'd make so many horribly weak decisions with it.  It could have/should have been amazing. They dropped the ball and I stopped being excited for it pretty much as soon as the first images and bits of info were coming out ... and then once I was in beta and saw the direction they were taking.

    As for GW2 which I did hype, I'm still playing and loving the game.

    Thanks for ... following my posts though? Lil creepy but it's cool :)

     

    Btw just because a game shows potential and I see potential in it, and share my interest on a forum for exactly that purpose, doesn't mean I'm a hype machine.  Heck, I've never said 'THIS WILL BE THE GREATEST GAME EVER AND BE A WOW KILLER' or something as ignorant as that about any game. I'll leave the hype to the experts.

    Sounds like something Zenimax would do, redesign the ocean to be only 2 ft deep so that people can't swim with armor on.

    From the PAX demo you can swim but you can't dive.

    Having said that, I agree, it's obvious that they are on the beach. What's not obvious is how far off that ship is.

    edit: did you take these or are these posted somewhere?

    I like that the character looks as though they've been knocked back and are holding themself up with their left arm. Can't tell if that's really the case or not, but that's how it appears.

    it kinda looks like GW2 after you have been knocked down and are trying to survive before you die.

    You really have no need to justify yourself for that. We all judge a game on what we know, and then we give an honest impression. Sometimes hopeful, sometimes disappointed. And yeah, this sort of "I KNOW WHAT YOU SAID 5 YEARS AGO" is spooky. XD

     

    That said: I say it looks good. But all can be made to look better, if you just make screenshots the right way. I am skeptical with the Hero Engine, esp. after one of the SWTOR devs revealed MOST of the many million dollars of SWTOR went into the crappy Engine.

    If SWTOR is by any means representative of the Hero Engine I remain skeptical. They don't have much of a distance drawing nor any really populated towns or cities. Maybe it's the engine, maybe just Bioware's inability. Who knows. So yes it does look good, but these days I am harder to convince. I want to see ingame HD vids, or ideally I want to see it myself.

    I like the earth tones, the Morrowind-ish style.

    A guildie of mine is in TESO beta, of course he didn't say anything, NDA and all, save: he said it played much like an Elder Scrolls game. Which imo is good.

    It looks like the elder scrolls to me. I do like how the elves look quite alien and obviously superior. :)

    Thanks Elikal - good to see you still around :)

    Of course I don't have to justify myself, but I wanted to be clear.

     

    The thing about the Hero Engine is... when James Ohlen went to see his buddy who was developing the Hero Engine, James said 'That's what we need! We need this for SWTOR!'

    His buddy told him 'It's not ready - it's just being developed now.'

    James replied 'It's fine I want this now! We can fill in the rest of the code ourselves!'

    I'm paraphrasing but that's pretty much what happend. Short sighted decision. The top decision makers on SWTOR completely screwed that game up. Not EA, not Hero Engine (though I can't actually speak for the quality of the FINISHED enigne), but BIOWARE folks in charge. The blame rests squarely on them.

    But back to TESO, I think there's a diamond in the rough here.

    Oh my, to think it all fell down to Ohlen and this decision. Sad. :( So sad.

    screens look good. I hope the boat you see and the moutains in the distance are playable, not like the prettty picture games we've been getting.
