    If there are not massive battles against army sized forces in this game I will be disappointed, until I launch Serious Sam 3.

    Ashley went and got all hot hot, so now I have to play ME1 again and let Kaiden die..
  • Church4252Binh Nguyen K-Pop authority™, Pho King Madison Heights, MI Icrontian

    Funny, I thought Ashley looked terrible compared to her original model. Faces are so damn important, and they're all wrong.

    Crossing fingers it was just the demo.

    Oh, also: now everybody has a Normandy? And here I thought Shepard was special.

    Having not played any of the games, I thought the people looked great, but seemed like some of the details (fire stuck out a lot!) were stuck on after-effects. I hope that is also demo-only.

    Original Ash:

    New Ash:

    The wiki has some other images from the original.

    And just look at how damn terrible she (and Anderson, and Shepard, and everybody...) looks when she speaks.



    I think my complaint with the character models mostly deals with how bad the faces animate, but her radical style change doesn't help, either. She looks all right when she shuts up, but... guh.
  • BasilBasil Nubcaek England Icrontian
    Wait, that's Ash?

    Eugh, she looks more like a hairdresser than a soldier.
  • pigflipperpigflipper The Forgotten Coast Icrontian
    Well, Ash is an officer now and how many years is this game after the first? Quit bitchin about minor details.

    I'd hit it.
  • SnarkasmSnarkasm Madison, WI Icrontian
    Heh, she's racist/speciesist in the first, too. Wonder if she still is.

    She is a spectre now, so I doubt it.

    That video is a bad example of facial animations and pretty much everything else. At 20 seconds a character is frozen in place between Anderson and Shepard for several seconds before blinking out of existence. I don't like to use the "it's just a demo" excuse but after seeing that I think it's pretty clear they still have some things to correct. Facial animations might be one of them. Also, something about the running animation in the playable demo is hilariously awkward.

    I agree and approved

    If only that was in-game imagery...

    I lost my save file when my hard drive crashed and I still haven't gone back to replay the games the way I had everything originally. Alas I don't think I'll have Super Shepard back in time for ME3.
    I've always let Kaiden die....
    Kaiden was actually a really good choice to let live if you went renegade. You can harden him and make him way more racist/specieist than Ashley is in ME1

  • Church4252Binh Nguyen K-Pop authority™, Pho King Madison Heights, MI Icrontian
    Yeah, but have a hard time going renegade for some odd reason...
  • fatcatfatcat Mizzou Icrontian
    one week....

  • fatcatfatcat Mizzou Icrontian
    also Live action trailer...

    I'm pretty sure that is over 9000, let me check my power meter.

    Her cheeks are so hollowed looking, and she has manly jawls too. Weird.

    My ability to resist pre-ordering this instead of waiting to buy it when it's on sale is much weaker after watching that.

    I was going to wait as well. Now impossible.
