That's so disappointing. I love SK. They made Blood Omen and Eternal Darkness, some of my favorite games. I don't know what's going on with them. Although, to be fair, Too Human was a fun game, but it is the only game I've ever played that has given me headaches due to framerate issues.

This just looks poorly made.

as bad as the graphics are the thing that I noticed the most was the voice-acting, good lord that was pathetic.

Oh god, I keep waiting for the textures to load in like in all the Unreal engine games, but THEY NEVER LOAD! WHHHHYYYYYYYY?!?!?!?!?!?!

Silicon Knights is usually known for being overly ambitious, this shit looks more like Activision cutting the budget and making them release it 6 months ahead of schedule. Klepek, I expect a tell all after Activision liquidates SK and they all go their separate ways.

While playing the game, its easy to tell Activision just wanted to get this out before Arkham City hit to make a little cash grab.

The guy's talking is as horrible as the textures.

@rudeboy217: Welcome to basically every YouTube Let's Play/stream of any game ever.

Though admittedly, a lot of people sound stupid when talking to themselves. But the early Quick Looks on GB with only one person are still better than most of the stuff you find on YouTube.

Man, it looks like it's 10 builds too early.

When I called it a gen-o-saur, I had to make one. So X-men Destiny is this. ^ Gen-O-Saur!!!!!!

i appreciate this.

Sucks about the game. I liked the concept. Now I just want to play Legends since I never played it before.

Thank you. You just made my $200 Wacom tablet purchase a good thing.

It looks like an MMORPG.

By which I mean that it looks like an MMO from 2005.

This is an MMO from 2005, it looks much better than this game.

This is some nice work right here.

Usually when I see someone ragging on the graphics in a game, I think they're just being an exaggerating asshole.

Seconded.

Also agree with your point that this game legitimately looks awful though.

Damn... just... damn. Silicon Knights has really become an unimpressive developer. Who knows, maybe the gameplay will be the best damn thing ever. ell-oh-ell.

Is he playing on the PSP? Lol

#67 Posted by MisterDakotaJ (18 posts) -

I just saw the commercial. I didn't know Cole McGrath was gonna be in this game! Jk jk, but seriously, one of the "rookies" looks an insane amount like Cole from Infamous 2, but back when he had hair, before fanboys got pissed and the developer made him bald again.

#68 Edited by Vortextk (419 posts) -

I don't know if I should complain or not. As for actual graphics, it looks worse than bloodrayne 2 did on my pc when I tried it a few weeks ago(yes, you read that right, bloodrayne 2...I think the first played better so I've had a tough time wanting to go back). Sure it's 1080p with some kind of player made mod to up reflections, add fsaa and other crap, but the game is circa 2004 and the base assets are for like a ps2.

So on one hand I feel like whining because it looks pretty awful, but at the same time, that's the sentiment that has absolutely LEVELED the middle tier games this generation. Is it for the better that we only get the bastions and the gears of wars 3 or are we losing something by having that middle section of retail games die out? I don't know.

*edit* Ref called a flag on the play!

It does look a billion times better in the video posted last, what the hell is the initial video then?

#69 Posted by MistaSparkle (2148 posts) -

I think they focused all their energy making that robot nice and shiny. He's like the most detailed thing in that whole video(I only watched till 1:02 tho)!

has to be something wrong with that version of the game or the console.

Interesting development. Maybe he does have some janky-ass 360 that can't finish fully loading all the textures...somehow.

Unreal Engine texture pop in. The last vid @ 7:14 clarifies this.

#73 Posted by LoggerRythm (190 posts) -

Well. So much for hoping this game would be good. "sigh"

Would it kill someone to make a good X-Men game?

#74 Posted by Kaddion (141 posts) -

You didn't like X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Granted it had its faults but it was still a pretty fun game.

#75 Edited by Xerxes8933A (227 posts) -

Yeah, I was bored so decided to grab a shot from both those walkthrough videos. Now, the game doesn't look good. But it doesn't look as bad as that first video makes it seem. Somethings gotta be up with his system/game.

First Vid
Second VId

I mean, you can't even tell that's barbed wire in the first one.

#76 Posted by Valames (726 posts) -

@Xerxes8933A: Thanks for those pics. Yeah something is definitely wrong with the OP's system. Is it a PC version running in DOS?!

#77 Posted by Metal_Mills (2997 posts) -
@Xerxes8933A: While it looks "better" it's still ugly as shit.

Silicon Knights, making games for a world that fears and hates them.

hahaha

#79 Posted by TheHBK (5485 posts) -

What the fuck?!? Silicon Knights did some good stuff once, but they should just be used as a studio to make ports. Thats it.

#80 Posted by WestsideSxE (4 posts) -

Tumescence does not begin to describe it...

#81 Posted by matthias2437 (985 posts) -

Why, Silicon Knights, why. Should have just made another Too Human, that game wasn't great but this is just shit.

#82 Posted by Huey2k2 (491 posts) -

Denis Dyack needs to get over himself and make a good game for once.

It's like he seems to think that because they made Eternal Darkness they are incapable of making bad games ever.

#83 Posted by BoG (5191 posts) -

I'm not sure what is worse, the game, or that man's commentary. Shut up.

#84 Posted by Zips (38 posts) -

Dear God, what are they thinking with this? I could maybe understand if this was an Arcade title, but this is a full retail release?!

I thought the same thing until Too Human. D:

Holy crap, now I see the ugliness that everyone is talking about.

#87 Edited by DeeGee (2126 posts) -

I absouletly love the way it comes up wth how many enemies are remaining.

#88 Posted by FritzDude (2263 posts) -

I believe that is called texture pop-in...

#89 Posted by Largo6661 (335 posts) -

Nope. There are no popping-in textures. Just a bland grey soup.

#91 Posted by probablytuna (3666 posts) -

HAHAHAH THAT ACHIEVEMENT. Also, why did they turn Nightcrawler into a hipster doofus?

#92 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

Quick look please.

#93 Posted by atomic_dumpling (2473 posts) -

Looks like that 3D fighting game Square put out back in the day - crummy as hell.

#94 Posted by Crash_Happy (701 posts) -

@JoeyRavn: I wouldn't be suprised to hear it was a bug. Suprised they didn't notice it sure, but it really does look like it's waiting for textures to load.

Well, no shit Sherlock... The video i'm currently watching(Skip to 11.40 to see the exact level) has much better textures than that, so yeah... That is textures that failed to pop-in due to either the system or a game bug.

Because graphics are most important.

@babychoochoo Too Human was an alright game. It wasn't worth the full price, but it was damn fun to play. I still regret selling it at a yard sale.
