Same.

Apparently due to the way the demo works, when it plays back, it doesent work out the physics in realtime or something, which is why you get the effect often before you see the cause. Watch when the crowbar swings and hits stuff, usually it breaks before it gets hit. also falling bodys start reacting to the floor before they hit it.

Either way the video they showed at E3 had obviously had time and thought put into it meaning that it would have been shot a good while before E3, so things can only look better now!!

Ive got huge upgrade plans for september,...

I don't know, I thought I'd read that it was because it was a demo playback that some of the physics and interactions don't look quite right in the E3 demonstration - in particular in the one with the big I-bean that squashes everyone they start bleeding against the wall before they hit it.

I think I read this in an SDK thead that was linked to from here and had lots of replies from Valve.

Everyboidy has complained about the crowbar swing (it's so girlish!), I think they'll change it if they can.

I read an interview with Valve a week or 2 back where this issue was brought up. They mentioned that the E3 vid was early alpha, and all issues pertaining to crowbar swing will be worked out before release.

Well they appear to be following the order of the 24 minute preview so the bit where Gordon shoves a piece of furniture in front of a door to stop the soldiers from coming in should be up next.

Then after that we should be seeing the booby trap one

This is the first time I've seen these. Whoa I'm impressed. I can't wait. One of the coolest things to me in the lab demo was it had that half life feel to it. Just with much better graphics and animation. It has valve written all over it. A nice taste of what we can expect in the game. Valve has raised the bar again. Doom 3 will be on the back burner until I finish this... unless Doom 3 comes out first. Time to build my new rig.

I dunno, the facial animation is good but its still a bit wooden. Its definatly better than most anything else i've seen, but still, it's a pain knowing photorealistic is still about 5 years away. =P

These new trailers show the game with almost enough quality that if feels like it's running on your machine at 640*480. I do feel that the third one really showed the detail of facial expressions much better than the other videos have. I'm really impressed with it now. Though, I haven't watched the 500+ meg version, just those 8 or so clips that were stuffed in a 210 meg zip and the lab clip I had dled somewhere else.

That green glow color hitting her on her right look realistic and smooth, especially on the chest at the collar bone below the neck. Then the outfit had different areas with some fancy shading on it, something you can't see in the lower quality videos.

Also these versions are direct feeds, compared to the cameras that had over exposed shots. The one I saw of the lab you couldn't see the scanners through the windows because of the exposure.

I hope to see the Striders, whatever those spider robots are called, video and the tech level in Bink next.

Yeah what a joke I post about Dragon Empires and people
act like I'm talking about the Halflife video. Obviously thats
ingame footage, duhh...
But in DRAGON EMPIRES it says its a 'trailer' so who knows
whether its actual game engine footage or pre-rendered,
thats what I meant.
