The facial animation system is more than just lip synching.Oh, yes, a model raising an eyebrow or blinking is so cutting edge and is such an addition to the lipsynching.
As a development feature, it may be unique in the way it is implemented, but the end result is far from unique. I certainly wouldn't call it the best lipsynching I have seen in a game.
I certainly wouldn't call it the best lipsynching I have seen in a game.No you're right. The lip synching in C&C: Tiberian Sun was way better. In fact, the lip synching in those 1995 FMV games was better. Valve suck. They should have just used FMV.
Go into Garry's Mod and place a bunch of dumsters and what not. THen drop a couple of rebels and combine and watch 'em duke it out. If they're near cover, they'll use it.Really? I've never used Garry's mod so I'll belive u (;P) but I can assure you the grunts SUCK at navigation without nodes. This isn't a criticism of the AI (it's designed for nodes, of course it's crap without them) but it's a waste of time testing a SP map without decent node placement.

He was unaware that Valve switched publishers for the GOTY edition. I don't see how this could be the stupidest thing he's ever postedThe news that the GOTY edition would be published/distributed by EA has been posted on Blues several times along with resulting long and heated discussion threads. Nin even posted in it: http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&threadid=58630&id=252616&boardid=1&view=flatnew
Enemies can now realize that random dumpster A can be used for cover without pre-set nodes from the level designerHeh nope, you still need to put in the info_node, info_node_hint and info_hints. Try not doing so, and the AI is really quite retarded. But decent placing and they can whip you in the map you designed
he tells me how it has progressed to surpass the quality of the original HL2 game itself!So that mod has first-person limb models, eh?
Nin, you have outdone yourself as that is the most stupid thing you have ever posted which is no small feat given your past posts.
When are they going to make steam cheaper or at least drop the price?When Gabe finally gets tired of bathing in the money his legions of
EA won't get any money no matter WHERE you buy it, since EA didn't publish it...LOL! Yes, EA is distributing the game for Valve for free.
