BG&E holds up extremely well. Nothing to complain about regarding the controls so far, though the one nagging thing would be the manual camera, which certainly has the dated feel of a typical last-generation third person game. But it's to be expected.

Also, I has Dragon Age II

Wow wait this thread exists?

Recently I've been looking at a few N64 re-texturing projects. Instead of playing something like Banjo-Kazooie or Ocarina of Time again on the console, the idea of going at it in high resolution sounds appealing, particularly since some aspects of the visuals haven't aged well. But it's not as easy as it sounds- sometimes the graphic designer just doesn't have a strong clue what to do, and it's hard to overcome that the visuals of a game were designed and built together, and bolting on high-resolution textures can upset the balance and emphasize how empty the world is.



That said, there are some interesting projects to keep an eye on.

A cel-shaded Ocarina of Time that's well done:


See what an astonishing difference re-doing the sky makes:

I can't wait for RAGE to come out. For those who haven't heard anything about it, check it out:

Rage Preview - Xbox 360 Preview at IGN

From my favorite FPS producers of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory (id Software) and my favorite producers, Bethesda Softworks. Game looks sick.

I don't doubt it's already been brought up a dozen times somewhere in B&C, but The National are doing a song for Portal 2. So yeah, pretty cool.

I'm playing Fight Night Champion at the moment, the inclusion of a campaign with actual storytelling is really cool. Not exactly the most varied of games but very good for what it is.

HAVE to get my PS3 back before that comes out. It just keeps getting more exciting with every spot I see.

The facial recognition software makes the eyes look more real, which will be implemented into giving the player the opportunity to try and use the facial reactions of the characters to determine if they are lying to you or not. Should be awesome.

Hopefully other developers pick up the technology because it really adds a lot to the animations.

I'm so pumped for LA Noire. Plus, it's great to see a game that good being made in Australia during such a bad time for the industry here.

LA Noire weirds me out, the animations just seem super distracting in every video I've seen. Hopefully the game is fun, Rockstar's track record with brand new IP's isn't as strong as we all like to pretend, but their other games are so good that I have hope.

LA Noire looks great, but I am not sure if I'm ready for another open-world jaunt from Rockstar. I held off on Red Dead Redemption for the same reason: eventually I get bored of doing the super drawn-out missions masquerading as a big story. The last Grand Theft Auto, and for that matter most of them, have a ton of filler and it just wears me down before I can get to the finale of the game.

It's kind of strange I'm arguing against having too much content and story in a game, but it just feels like you're slogging through it eventually with Rockstar. Hopefully L.A. Noire is good.

yeah, that is pretty badass. i kinda see why the guy was raving about how awesome it sounds, but like mofo was saying it does kinda look creepy.
