To be fair this gen of consoles seems to be close to expire, so big whoop?

When that is said, it is the way of fixed hardware, they lack behind and they expire (from a tecnical standpoint).

So it is not really extraordinary nor a sign of weakness as such.

I mean it's done in Cryengine 3 (looks exactly like that anyway lol), so the devs get those effects with basically no effort from their part. Therefore I'm not really sure what you mean by "even MMO:s". You and I could easily make a little application in CryEngine with the same tesselated stonewalls. Character animations, effects etc on the other hand look as cheap as they typically do in an MMO. This is all Crytek magic combined with a powerful enough machine :).

Archage is a generic MMO. And the graphics were average.

if it's not optimized(which it won't be for years) who cares how good it looks? i remember playing ff xiv and swtor(2 of the better looking MMOs out now) and they ran like sh!t with all the graphics bumped up all the way.

Also, in my experiance, when an MMO focuses on graphics over content, the game is usually pretty thin.

Archeage is one of those sandbox MMOs that sounds too good to be true, so it probably is. I'm expecting the typical terrible launch and population dropoffs. It usually takes an MMO like Archeage a year or so of release to really iron out all of the issues and get some content out there, if it can even survive that long.

Looked like garbage TBH, like putting some effects in a PS1 game

Halo 4, GOW Ascension, Gears 3 look like 10 generations ahead of Archage

lol loosingends butthurt, he gotta use pics of linear, prebaked, super scripted console games, meanwhile Archeage is a massive open world sandbox game and these pics are probably without the DX11 features

Yea but the game looks like crap? I mean it WILL suck.

Problem with most MMOs is that they don't have good lore to build their game on. It is rare a good MMO comes along without having had a previous lore to fall on such as WoW or Star Wars.

This is true. Just look at some of the CE3 mods. They look greater than this with higher levels of detail and effects.

These are nice, but the rest aren't anything special. GW2 looks better IMO

#26 Posted by -Unreal- (24544 posts) -

I was going to try and post before a console kid posted tiny little 1280x720 screenshots where you can barely see what the game actually looks like, but it was too late, it was already done.

#31 Posted by silversix_ (15026 posts) -
looks like those unknown generic mmo's with a fanbase of 13 people. DX11 is nice tho and i want it in a good game like gw2.

What the hell is wrong with you Loosing, seriously.

#33 Posted by faizan_faizan (7866 posts) -

@loosingENDS

Do you even know what i meant? What i meant was that THIS game is an MMO, This and GW2 are the only MMOs that look this GOOD, If you wanna compare Console graphics then please don't choose an MMO, Choose Crysis1,2,3, BF3, FC3, PS2.
There are far better looking games on PC than this MMO.

#34 Posted by QQabitmoar (1969 posts) -

'Generic', 'niche' etc.

You realise this is a sandbox MMORPG from the creator of Lineage and Lineage 2, right?

Generic quests during leveling don't automatically make the whole game generic. I for one, will enjoy fighting other guilds over world bosses, resources, etc.

And I doubt I will keep that tesselation and DOF on during a multisided mass PvP battle over an epic boss.

just ignore them...if this was developed by blizzard they would actually care enough to go beyond looking at screenshots.

incase you didn't know archeage was released last week in korea and work has already begun to bringing it state side

What has me interested in this game is the GAMEPLAY not the graphics.

The impressions I have read on this game are also beaming, but there is a slight problem here, I have only read one negative impressions preview, and that is kinda concerning.
