New art style

http://www.joystiq.com/2009/04/16/a-...ands-new-look/

I hate it, looks like fable 2 character style with prince of persia art style. I hope that fable bandit aint who you play cause he looks ridiculously stupid and his arms are twigs that couldnt even hold the rifle in that case behind him...

I am guessing its a drawn representation because the gameplay video the guys looked nothing like that and they were supposed to be 2 of the campaign characters.

That is the new art style. Which upsets me greatly.

I, too, like the new art style. It looks both unique and entertaining.

It saddens me that the old graphics were taken out, but I can't really complain since the new looks just as good. It might be a different story if I had the game and they changed it, but I've never played it before, and I can't be mad at something that hasn't been released yet.

I kinda liked the PoP art style .. however, that was PoP and this is a shooter. I feel like they had to dumb down the graphics to this from the normal modern style so they had room to fit all the rpg elements. It's depressing ...
I might be wrong of course I'm not a cg person or whatever .. but thats what it feels like anyway

It should generally make the game look a lot better now they are using cel-shaded graphics. This will allow them to give more varied looks for their randomly generated environments rather than every texture looking copied + pasted everywhere.

Also you guys need to stop calling it the "Prince of Persia style", they didn't invent cel-shading.

I dont' care who came up with cel shaded style .. Prince of Persia is the game a lot of people are familiar with that uses those graphics.
Like I said in my other post, I liked that game and how it looked. I just saw the borderlands trailer on my hdtv though .. completely turned off I doubt I'll be getting it. Not worth getting a game if you can't stand looking at it.

I think the graphics look amazing and unique. They probably also had to dumb the graphics down so they could have all the content they wanted!

I think it ruined the game. It looks like Team Fortress 2 a little

You are one of those people that likes every game to look photo-realistic, aren't you?

It's not that I don't like that graphics it's just that 'new art style+bordelands=fail' to me. I liked the starting style they had, however as was already mentioned it was probably done to fit in more of the content they had planned so that must mean they have quite a bit of stuff there.

on a last note, as far as i can remember, Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker had the first Cell shading...well the first that everyone really knew/recognized...may be wrong though, but just my guess...

god damn the game is not cel-shaded.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cel-shaded_animation

It is a hand drawn style. that somewhat resembles cel shading but it is no no way true cel-shading. just look closely at the details in the screen shots and you can tell that it's not true cel-shading.

Just because things have a black outline around them does not mean that they're cel-shaded.

True, true. Some things in the game don't even have the black outlines.

exactly. The game borrows many ideas from cel-shading but basically it's made to look hand drawn, which it is.

WARNING PDF LINK just so you guys know.
http://www.pcgamer.com/pdfs/Borderlands0609.pdf

This is the PC gamer article about the game that was about 2 months ago explaining the whole new art style.

If you look at the last page on the bottom left side of the image there is a comparison between the concept art and the new render. The idea was to do a real hand drawn textures. The article also goes into detail saying that the game is not really cel-shaded. it just somewhat looks like it but it's not cel-shaded by any means.
