Not much to this one. Here are three screens that were recently released for James Cameron's new game Avatar. Remember, this game supposedly will feature "Stereo 3D" according to Ubisoft.

Shots look alright but I'm not sure I want to play it.

This was worth twenty minutes of boring talk.

Halo meets Lost Planet 2.

Throughout his entire moment on stage, I swear to god, I thought he was talking about the cartoon.

Where's our air bender?

Edit: To eliminate confusion I hereby adding the "lol" to the end of my comment. Thanks for your attention.

Word. If I'm not bending some elemental ish I'm not a Avatar.

Looks a little Crysisish, specially the first one.

#15 Posted by Mourer (143 posts) -

At least I'm not the only one who thought this was based on the cartoon for the longest time until now.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

"Stereoscopic 3D" eh? So you're rendering two scenes per frame and it's going to run fast and look great? I need more info and a demo before I can even begin to evaluate this.

#18 Posted by Death_Burnout (3797 posts) -

Not the last Air Bender? weak...

Serisouly though, thats all i think about when you mention Avatar...that and the 360 avatars

cool?

I don't want to be the jerk or the person to say it but....im gonna.

This movie is going to be awesome, even if you were not following it then you should because everything said, promised and shown(which is very little) makes this the movie of December. I know I have nothing to back this up with but if others were even slightly following this movie, then they know what I am talking about.

I think the gaming media are missing the point on this game - this seems like a really significant release this year. Ubisoft have gone right out of their way to distinguish this from the usual movie tie-in, and seems to have been directly created in tandem with the most expensive movie of all time. I get the feeling that come Christmas nobody will be talking about much else but Avatar.

#23 Posted by Curufinwe (1265 posts) -

Why didn't they have these up while Cameron was talking for 20 minutes?

#24 Posted by Puppy (295 posts) -

Halo meets Jurassic Park.

Looks interesting...

#26 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11760 posts) -

Ohhh.... So that's what James Cameron was rambling about for 20 minutes at the Ubisoft Press Conference. Reminds me of Halo, for some reason.

#27 Posted by banksrob (1126 posts) -

I feel sorry for anyone and everyone who sat through the talk about avatar in ubisofts conference

#28 Posted by TwoOneFive (9459 posts) -

pretty odd Cameron allowed this screen shots out, the movie has been so secretive. 


Hmm...I dunno guys, give it a chance, looks kinda cool. From a game perspective, sure it looks like Turok meets Halo. But from a movie perspective, dude this shit is going to fucking rock! I can't wait to see this movie now. 

#29 Posted by Willy105 (4690 posts) -

James Cameron makes a movie once every decade. This movie better deliver.

Amen brotha! The whole time I thought this "Avatar" was based on a kids show. Thankfully, I was wrong. Now I'm crazy stoked for this shit! I'm confident the game and the movie will both be great! And Sam Worthington is the lead! He was my favorite actor from Terminator Salvation.

What is stereo 3D antways?

#33 Posted by broqz (115 posts) -

i really hope they did get this "stereo 3d" thing working well for home consoles.  if they could make a game that had the feel of Beowulf (in imax 3d) but without some of the tech glitches that would be great. 
i wonder if theyy will make the game playable not in 3d too.  there are people out there who cannot see stereopic 3d because their eyes can't focus like that.  kinda like some people are color blind.

oh yeah.  i hope the movie is neat too.  looking forward to see if james cameron can set the bar for special effects in movie's again.  i still hold current movies upto terminator 2 in tnhat department.

So this game comes with a pair of 3D Glasses?

SOLD

#35 Posted by Lind_L_Taylor (3966 posts) -

Is this a game or a movie?  If it's a movie-based game then we already know it's gonna suck.  What they ought to do is finish or nearly complete the videogame before finishing the movie. That way you get a highly polished video game experience to go with your movie.  When will Hollywood learn?

#36 Posted by NuclearWinter (766 posts) -

James Cameron's speech has assured that I have no interest in ever seeing or reading anything about this game, ever again.

Stereo 3D is without exception the most "buzzwordy" feature I've ever heard of. It's beyond being a gimmick, it's gibberish.

What's the big deal of this movie/game?

#39 Edited by dagas (2837 posts) -

Stereoscopy is just another word for 3D and was first invented in 1840. Talk about using an old term to try to make it sound new.

A picture's worth a thousand words. Take note Cameron.

This game is out today.  Does anybody care?  Does this bode well for the movie at all?
