    Default The one thing RIFT has over the upcoming MMOs...

    GRAPHICS!!!

    The graphics in RIFT are drop-dead gorgeous. I haven't seen GW2, but RIFT has SWTOR's graphics beat by a mile.

    And consider this, RIFT can always improve the game easily. SWTOR cannot change their graphics without a MAJOR overhaul. They decided on the comic-book look..and they are stuck with it.

    So in the end, RIFT has the advantage...and this is coming from a SW fan who had high hopes for TOR.

    PS: TRION, please make a sci-fi MMO.

    Go check out GW2 and then come back to me.

    Go ahead I'll wait.


    You're back? Good. Those are alpha screens with lower than actual detail settings. Here let me help lift that jaw up for you.

    There are some other videos out there that show off GW2, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

    Those graphics remind me a lot of Aion

    OK thanks for the links. Very impressive.

    The artwork has an Asian/Anime tinge to them. I've never been an Anime fan so it was a bit of a turn off (for me)...but the graphics are beautifully done. Hopefully the actual gameplay is good.

    Same company I think.

    Not so excited anymore...

    My first thought too, and that's not a good thing imo. Aion had nice characters, but the landscape was horrible...

    Oh and yes, I really like the graphics in Rift, the mystery feeling Stillmoor gives me, the I-feel-home feeling IPP gives me... love it all

    GW2 looks fantastic, from all angles. I'm really happy it's going a box-only route so I can justify playing Rift and it.

    My one problem with the graphics in Rift is the grass "ground clutter" is too flat and 2D.
    The again, I am playing on a GT240.

    Rift graphics are nice, not superior.

    I'm shocked you found an image of female armor in that game covering that much skin.

    Can be done, just increase the amount of required space by around 30-40%. Which is roughly another 10gigs of details.

    saw a preview of the graphics they're using for models in the new owod mmo, and holy ****e, gonna blow everything here out of the water. But that game is easily several years out still, it's not even named yet that I'm aware of.

    Probably won't appeal to most of this crowd either, since it's to be RP intensive

    The WoD MMO is likely going to be a nightmare of ERP with it being vampire-only. I'm staying far away from it until they bring in other creatures.

    Seriously.

    This game is obviously aimed at males.
