Cryptic Screen Shots From Champions Online !
« on: 30 June 2008 06:28 PM »
 TenTonHammer has released three screen shots of the Champions Online game from Cryptic Studios, and I was rather impressed with their looks!
 Go take a look see and check out their (Cryptics') "Unique style and artwork".

Could you change that title to include "Champoions"... You almost gave me a heart attack.

I had mixed feelings about these images. Overall, I liked Image #3, and the background foliage in Images #1 and #3. I didn't care much for Image #2 if considering it for STO because of it's highly "comic book" stylized look, although for Champions it probably works well. I also didn't care much for the "hero" in Image #1 because it looked like they took a comic book character and superimposed it via Photoshop onto the nice background scenery.

It would be interesting to know what level of development these shots reflect.

 I fairly well agree with you on those points Random. The scenery is, over-all, exceptional. The three characters in #3 are fairly well defined also.
 When I got the screens up to 1064 x 640, the details in the images, especially the foiliage, was very impressive...on my monitor at least!

Yeah, I agree with RR, the first pic is a little weird...

they do look pretty good but one thing you have to relise is that they are cartoony/sylized like that is because its a Superhero game and thus would go well within that whole genre of comic books

STO for all we know could be the same graphical potentional as SG:W or maybe AoC

I be very upset if that happened. AoC is having a VERY hard time keeping their game from crashing because of graphics problems atm. My friend compalins about it every day, and hes got a 8800 GTS.

Im fine with SWG graphics. but AoC is unneeded for an MMO.

Well, what I think this shows is that Cryptic has done an excellent job creating the right look for one of their games; I only hope that STO sports graphics as well-suited to its demographic as CO's are to its.

Stargate Worlds is shaping up to be quite pretty, indeed, and having played Tabula Rasa on the highest of settings I've certainly acquired a taste for high-end graphics in MMOGs.  However, I agree with knighofhyrule730; SWG graphics are fine for ground-based gameplay (the only problem being that low-end graphics may convince people that they're getting a low-end product without giving it a fair shot).  In particular, a great thing about the graphics in Star Wars Galaxies is that you can notice rather small details about people's facial features (those of Humans, in particular), and I think character customization is important to many Trekkies.
