I think the new artstyle looks great. It definitely stands out in a sea of "realistic" military-related FPS's.

The medic model does look out of place as a family doctor/ NSA interrogator though.

And I'm sure someone out there will probably make a mod that replaces the cartoony models with realistic ones if the gameplay is good enough.

xXBatmanXx is officially dubbed - Riley 2.0
Dubbed by one idiot to describe another.

xXBatmanXx wouldn't even qualify as an early alpha version of me much less an improved version (unless you consider him improved because you can actually best him in an argument).

As for Team Fortress 2, I'll evaluate it when Valve releases something worth watching like gameplay footage or a demo.

Probably no gameplay shown so that, if something happens to be out of whack in playtesting and get changed, people don't complain down the road.

Plus this is just a teaser - an intro to the characters and feel of the game. A full trailer will come. Makes sense, too. They're already jarring people with this huge visual change. It's causing a strong reaction in some people, and generating a lot of discussion. Waiting to show gameplay serves two functions:
1) Doesn't piss people off even more. Some people hate change and are already here swearing they'd never play it. If Valve showed altered gameplay they'd just be even angrier. Give them some cool-off time, let them accept this change, before you hit them over the head with a shovel again.
2) Why let all of the cats out of the bag at once? Valve has people talking a ton about TF2 now. Just mentioning TF2 would have done it, but they needed to show something to prove it was real. Which they did. Now they can sit back, people will talk, and a little closer to release they can show some footage to get interest back up.

You need to keep interest up somehow. Some companies choose to constantly talk and show repetitive footage. Sony tends to do this. Other companies tend to talk only a few times and let details trickle out. Nintendo and Valve tend to do this. Less work for them, and they come across as less pushy and less obnoxious to most people. It's a good PR tactic.

So the solider smashing a shovel on his head will be used in-game how exactly? I don't doubt it's done using the game engine but it doesn't give us any idea what the actual gameplay will be like... it looks great but an in-game movie would be more useful/interesting.

Exactly.

Idle animation most likely. Or not at all. He did say "most".

I'm thinking it might be some kind of taunt animation? I dunno..


Whatever it is, it's awesome.

It seems that everything except the Spy animation is indeed actual gameplay footage.

103. Re: why does america support a theocracy Jul 20, 2006, 12:04 MeatForce
 

Hate to say it

THEN DON'T FUCKING SAY IT!!!!!!

Sorry to be harsh, but WHY THE FUCK DO PEOPLE KEEP HUMOURING SUCH BLATANT TROLLING??? This isn't OOTB, it's a thread about TF2, so please discuss that elsewhere if you must discuss it.



Back to the topic at hand -- here's a little Q&A with Robin Walker that comes to me by way of EvAv, by way of the Shack:

For those curious about how much of this is in game, here are some excerpts of emails from Valve's Robin Walker

Robin: Actually, everything in that trailer is in-game. There's some extra screenspace effects on it (depth of field & motion blur), but apart from that it's all just recorded in the game. So yep, that's what the models look like, and that's what 2fort looks like now.

When asked specifically about which animations are indeed from gameplay, here is Robin's reply. It seems that everything except the Spy animation is indeed actual gameplay footage.

Robin: Almost all of the animations are game anims used while playing (scout run, hwguy firing, etc). The exception is the Spy. We don't have a disguise effect we're happy with yet, so we whipped up that animation to give new players an understanding of what the Spy class is about.

We still haven't decided how we'll use screenspace effects. It's more of a design issue than anything else.

Hate to say it but this HAS worked in the past for Israel. At least as far as getting neighboring countries to stop allowing terrorist to set up camp. See Egypt for example. Of course this won't work against Palestine as the government supports these attacks, but it may work against Lebanon.

How about 100?

I'll wait for the actual reviews and actual gameplay comments.. and be sick of playing Quake Wars if it comes out first.. before deciding on this one.

4.Money. Always follow the money trail. It leads both ways...or do you think the $5.5 billion the US sends as 'aid' to Isreal stays in Israel and none of it trickles back?

Anyway, I think the way Israel is reacting is in a way understandable, for the reasons you mentioned...but it is utterly unhelpfull and couterproductive; this hasn't worked the past twenty years, so why do they think this time it won't breed more Hezbollah freaks?

Anyway2. it's interesting how this thing started in the first place. By now it's about these 2 hostages...but it actualy started with ONE Israely soldier 'kidnapped' in Gazza, which lead to repurcussions, which lead to those other two Isrealies being 'kidnapped'. The interesting things is this: taht first Isrealy...wtf was he doing in Gazza? He shouldn't have been there in the first place, so taking him in amounts to him being a POW, not 'kidnapped'.

Anyway3, you are totally correct about your point of posting this kind of stuff on a gaming website...I get enough of this quasi-informed bullshit from wanna-be-political-analists (including me! :)) on Metafilter and other sites.
