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

    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.

    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.

    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 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

    Yeah, but have a hard time going renegade for some odd reason...

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

    Okay, now that I've finished ME2 (just in the nick of time), I finally sat down to watch this trailer.

    I cannot believe how good the CGI was. I'm usually one of the first to whine about the uncanny valley, and can always spot CGI characters/environment, but this was seriously good work. Seriously freakin' good. Wow.

    I won't have a chance to play until the 14th at the earliest, no money and I am working insane hours right now. Need to wait for next paycheck and extended down time.

    Beat the game, here is my review.

  • KoreishKoreish I'm a penguin, deal with it. KCMO Icrontian
    So the opening to ME3 is based on DLC for ME2? That I didn't buy, and now my Shepard seemingly went against character because the game was trying to fill that void. Bioware and EA are devious bastards.

    That outcome was inevitable and not a choice. EVERYONE is forced to make that choice in the DLC.

  • Church4252Church4252 K-Pop authority™, Producer @ 765 Production Madison Heights, MI Icrontian
    I believe the bridge between ME2 and ME3 was the DLC named Arrival.
    ·
  • fatcatfatcat Mizzou Icrontian
    Yup, it was Arrival, which you should have played. BUY ALL DLC's people lol

    Looks pretty shit for the price they're charging.
