No lie - I loved the first 3, only reason I bought a PS3, but I have zero interest in the next one after all the turmoil on that franchise.
What turmoil? Development problems with the 4th game?

Apart from the game overall - which looks kinda cool, albeit too focused on action - why are the textures so horribly low res?

I really like Frozenbyte Studio. They make great games, upgraded even their older game and made it free for owners of the original. They release an editor for free. I hope they make another great IP or Trine 3 and the fans eat it up because they are a nice small company.

Trine was simplistic yet refined in it's gameplay. I played the hell out of both. I look forward to whatever they do next.
I wholeheartedly agree

So there is gameplay and puzzles? Not just a walking simulator?
Yep. You have to discover clues, search for items, move objects, put a crime scene in chronological order.
It's all very rudimentary, though. Don't expect supreme depth.

I haven't played much, just about 40 minutes.

It's a game you need to take your time with and absorb the details of the environment. If you don't have patience or don't enjoy a slow burn, then it's not for you.

I dunno, I don't much care for this QTE-style combat adopted from Screed and Arkham. Instant counters, traversing yards at a time instantly, "press A to do spiffy animation attack"... all makes me feel pretty detached from the action. Wish they'd gone with a more deliberate, tactile system.
This is why I never got into AC. Too much dumbing down of the controls.
Hold A to win

Dear Esther was great. The environments and subtle story elements were very immersive. It's less of a game an more of an experience.

I played a bit of Vanishing last night and it's a more interactive than Dear Esther.
It's just as, if not more immersive as well.
Never has an organic environment looked as natural and realistic, either.

Graphics and sound are fantastic, but voice acting and NPCs aren't quite as high.

The gameplay mechanics are pretty interesting, but straight forward.

I'm liking it a lot so far.

I really can't see this game not being amazing.

Hopefully an upgrade to a 970 with my 3570k and 16 gigs of RAM will max this baby

Would be extremely difficult to have a first person view considering the Euphoria animation system creates so many random movements.

Sure, it can switch to 3rd person when you fall/die/etc, but there are plenty of times where it may get puke worthy in 1st person just running around

Racing games are fun initially, but they soon lose their luster. I just don't find the kids play them very long hence a waste of money from my point of view.
The 20 or 30 dollar price point is good for a racing game, considering how repetitive they can get.

Unless of course it's NFS3 and you can download 100 custom cars from the community every day :p

Some people prefer to spend a bundle up front and not have to worry about it for 4 years though so to each his own. I'm grabbing a 970 to OC and drive a 1440p config but if it was just my old 24" 1080p Dell then I would just wait a bit and see what else pops up.
I definitely buy with the future in mind, hence my card still being a 570

You're right though, I'll wait to see if a 960 pops up... but > $400 for a top of the line GPU in the 970 sounds pretty great

It also depends on what games you play and what resolutions obviously. If you're just running at 1080p you don't need any of this stuff, its complete overkill.
I run at 1080p with at least 2xAA with a 570 but don't get 60fps in newer titles.
You're suggesting the 970 is an overkill upgrade?

Also, my MSI 570 OC runs pretty quiet until intense load. Might have to grab from MSI again

I'll tell ya what is good though, the movie Heat.
If this game was more tightly knit heists with less explosions and chaos but on a decent sized map with progression, it would be cool.

Oh, sweet, thanks. Did you try it with SweetFX? It looks pretty vibrant, but I thought the point of the dusty washed out colors was to add to the oppressive atmosphere. Wondering if it gave the game a different feeling.
Try it out. It's easy to install and delete. You just drop the files in the exe folder then delete them if you don't dig it.

The way the skin on the hide stretches is pretty impressive.
I remember the way your horse's muscles contracted and stretched in Red Dead Redemption was mind-blowingly realistic.

I'll also probably stare at an elephants ass for a good while watching the advancement in tech.
