if those are the dx9 screens, this game has aged terribly. They should have released it last november as planned.

Graphics are not everything! I honestly don't think it looks that bad!
If the gameplay is solid, i'll be picking it up and i'm sure others will too.

Looks decent but hand/gun models still sucks IMO. Graphics do look "meh" some good some bad. As for gameplay it all sounds well but lets hope it plays out well also. I just wish it had COOP, this game calls out for it.

I am just wondering wtf is taking them so long with the game though, they are as bad as Valve with the delays...

same here man...the longer this takes, the less I want it. Has there ever been a game that keeps slipping and actually ends up not sucking? Half arsed graphics aside, I think they took it too ambitious with their ideas of gameplay...I think their realizing not everything on paper is working in the game.

EDIT

I also find it hilarious that this games first release date was November 2002 and now is expected in 06. :rolleyes:

actually some of those screens look much better than the older versions of the same thing. Looks like they have spent alot of time with their art department fine tuning their material shaders

well hl2 slipped a year and doom 3 never had an official release date, it was always " when its done" ...i'm talking about games that sit in development for ever and then finally get released....like medal of honor pacific assualt..

I thought Doom3 had release dates? Maybe my memory is fuzzy there. But HL1 *and* HL2 were significantly delayed.

Wow, that looks awesome. But it looks as if the 6800 Ultra (?) is struggling a bit with all the eye candy enabled. Maybe that's why it's scheduled for 2006 now. G70 should eat this game for breakfast. :p

Btw, DX9.1?? Remember that good ol' discussion? :D

Did you people actually watch the trailer? It kicks ass, the shadows, and everything and the AI is amazing if you know what they are saying.

The textures do look pretty horrible IMO and I've seen better graphics. But hey, I think I might just be spoiled.

I keep hearing 2006, so when I went in to pick up my Battlefield 2 headset, I asked about Stalker, and he said that they have it coming in November 05..
so who's right?

They all had release dates, Hl1 slipped a fair bit, as did HL2. D3 slipped also slipped so they said, "when its done"

STALKER still looks pretty good IMO. Sometimes stills don't do a game justice. HL2 looked meh till I played it with all teh eye candy on and it turned out to be fabulous. D3 looks pretty in stills but in actual gameplay the textures were a little off. However in-game the effects still looked a lot better, bar the textures, than the screenies.

STALKER probably will end up looking and playing better than it seems in screenies.

Can you stop looking at the screen? It's obvious they are low quality and blury you could see the compression artificats, don't any of you look at the trailer?

sorry to be off topic, but when you payed for bf2, do you get the headset when bf2 comes or they give it to you when you pre order it?
