Because You Love Them

Here are the missing four Psychonauts screenshots. If you missed the ten from yesterday you can catch them here. Two of these shots originally ran in a recent Game Informer, while two ran in Official XBox Magazine. Now they run, in digital form, on The Mojo.

What does everyone else think about this?

    I notice they have increased the number of polygons on Raz. I am not sure but I seem to recall the belt around his shoulder to be a difuse texture; part of the clothes - and now it has some dimension.

    Yeah, actually, his eyes have changes quite a bit. They're now purty... and sellout. (btw.. in case you haven't noticed, i'm having fun flooding these topics.)

    And yes, that is an impressive number of polygons. I have #3 (resized and all blurry and crappy) as my background.

    Old shots:
    1 2

    I'll try to scrounge up the first 6 released, but I'm too lazy now.

    Also, what happened to this "couple of others" of which you spoke?

    Two more comments:
    1)Raz's shadow under the ball of light looks kind of funny...
    2)I wonder what the controls/camera will be like. My suggestions: Ico or Halo (depending on desired person).

    I don't think there will be any first person elements of Psychonauts
  • Comment by: twifkak | Posted 22 Jan, 2003, 13:53
    I wouldn't think so.. but I still want some camera control.

    Furthermore, I think they should up the texture detail. It always pisses me off when a game is so good visually, except that uses crappy low-res textures. Ico was forced to, because the PS2 sux0rs, but Psychonauts has no excuse. (Don't worry -- despite the fact that I personify games, I never talk to them (I'm always worried I'll say the wrong thing (tut tut ching).).)

    Say what you will, but I'm thinking I might actually prefer a platformer from Schafer/Shaffer/Schaefer for a change. *ducks* Where? *Shenmue II, you idiot* Oh.

    Also, it's never a good sign when you can tell a game contains a bad pun simply by a screenshot.

    Great stuff. Especially the fourth image.
