@Eamil "probably" = "possibly." Used the wrong word.

Beautiful engine, great use of colors. So far liking what I see. The only caveat I see is animations. :23 the walking animation is pretty gnarly, little kids strides are gliding 8 foot strides per step.

All of that can be fixed in beta and with further tweaking, but I'm liking what I see most definitely.

@Alchemda For me there are 2 things, the animations and the player models (minus the Charr, they look great). The world is built so great and it looks so detailed and fantastic, but the models just seem so flat and generic. I'll definitely still be playing, I just wish the character models had the same BAM! to the eyeballs as the beautiful environments.

I've seen some pretty interesting looking character models in various demos and blog posts. It's something that's irking a lot of people, that they talk about their great character customization system and yet nearly all of the women and most of the men (aside from charr and asura) in the example material use the same, rather plastic-looking type of standard-attractive Barbie-and-Ken face. I think it's mostly the fault of their marketing department.

So that's the first flyby (ever) of a city I've seen that makes be believe its more than just a bunch of NPCs standing around taking up space.

I hope it feels that alive in the actual game.
Looking forward to finding out

The Framerate on the video seems to be the jerky thing. Maybe that's why the walking animation looks so awkward.

@Elikal

You don't need a time machine. Just bury yourself in the snow and have a friend dig you up and thaw you out when the game hits. Just make sure they remember to dig you out or the otters will be looking for you!

Soundtrack is very Elder Scrolls. I definitely love that. Jeremy Soule, you've done it again!
