Christ, look at the horrible depth of field on that western shot.

Edit: Trailer looks awesome though.

"Welcome to Morningwood." I think I live there, lol.

Why couldn't they have turned on AA for the screenshots? I hate jaggies. That's one of the things that current console games lack is AA which annoys me to death. I hope the next gen consoles have dual (SLI kind of thing) GPUs to handle AA in addition to the other stuff.

About the demo...it'll be interesting to see how quickly it turns up on torrent.

Great trailer. Great to get a shooter that doesn't take itself so damn seriously.

I was sincerely hoping this game would never come out. Way to go to kill off all hope! Did someone finally source the 5.25" Floppy disk readers to get this game gold?

I've had a low expectation with DNF but, man, this looks promising!
After watching other in-game footage so far this could be the one of the few games I get for full price.

They'll be able to handle it, they just won't.
AA isn't all that important on consoles. Open that screenshot and stand 5 feet from your monitor and tell me how obvious the jaggies are.

The horsepower is better put into more polygons than reducing jaggies.

So we can't kick DNF around anymore as vaporware? This makes me a sad panda.

Red Dead Redemption needs a word with you. What consumers will put up with is a totally different matter from what would make games look objectively better.

The trailer had me LOL at a few points, but unfortunately, a funny trailer does not constitute a good game. Will definitely try the demo though (IF one is available that is.)

And Broussard, you're still not off the hook yet. How does it feel that Pitchford was able to do in a year what you failed to do in 12?

Totally. And if you're standing 1 foot away, you can just close one eye and squint the other. Voila! Aliasing is completely gone. Who needs AA?

On a more serious note, it looks like the game has potential to be fun. I don't think it'll be GotY or anything but should be a nice homage to the days where shooters didn't always take place in the Middle-East and/or Russia and you didn't always play as an elite soldier.

Indeed. Console games with no AA or AF look fucking terrible. One of the recent console games I have played for a good while was Infamous and the jaggies and blurry textures right in front of the character made me cry. That game would have looked so amazing on PC. Wasted potential is what I see when I play a game like that.

The truck looks like an RC car and the aliens are all covered in cellophane but it might be entertaining.

Agreed. I loved Red Dead Redemption for example but you practically have to squint at times to make things out and I have pretty good eye sight so I can't even blame it on that. It's like someone applied a blur/pixelation joke filter over the entire thing. Infamous is another game that could been beautiful without the jaggies. These aren't game ruining experiences but they are certainly important enough to note and not that hard to address in a future hardware design for the next-gen.
