Am I seeing double?

In these two screenshots, Niko has the same expression. Or at least, incredibly similar.

This brings me to a question...

 

Whenever we've got our gun aimed, will an expression automatically pop up or something? Or maybe only after we've fired.

Also, Niko has perfect teeth. Lol.

They probably use the same facial expressions for all rage. It could also be a conspiracy, and they are rendering bits to make us think the game has made progress... rolleyes.gif

Does it really matter? It's an expression, deal with it.

Do you think I was complaining or something?

 

I was simply acknowledging that I thought they looked similar. I found it interesting, actually. I was asking what people think will trigger the expressions.

 

Please don't be so hostile when nobody has argued yet.

It's actually a fair question about the game. As with advances in next generation gaming and the engines/physics that apply, Things will be different... Oh, sorry to use that again, but, hey, why not!?

Who cares if he makes a face or not, it's an expression, many games have had this feature before.

Shenmue had the best textures and expressions I've ever seen. Wonder if that's why SEGA went bankrupt right after the release..?

 

I think there's something to be said about a game that's still more advanced than titles being released 7 years later.

If you don't care about the subject of the topic at hand, then you can always leave, rather than posting things like "who cares". Because you know, believe it or not, everyone has their own opinion. Just because you don't care about it, doesn't mean no one else does.

 

Anyway, I think they look similar, but not exactly the same. Maybe it's just the camera angle, but they look a little different to me. Also, not sure if anyone's noticed this, but in the first screenshot, there's a sign that says:

 

"Steinway ^

Bohan South"

 

Just thought I'd point that out.

I've seen "who cares?" in most responses pertaining to subjects on realism in GTA IV. Hope R* cares so the game isn't boring like the people who keep saying that.

Niko has a similar expression in this screenshot, too. Not to mention most others where he is wielding a weapon, with the exception of this one, where he is seemingly yelling/screaming/etc.

 

In trailer three, however, the only time we see Niko's face completely while shooting, he remains emotionless.

Wow, that really contributes to the topic. sarcasm.gif

 

 

Anyways, Facial expression is important if you ask me, I mean...would it make sense if he kept the same expression the whole game?

He was dealt with! sneaky2.gif

 

I think facial expressions never used to matter, but yeah, with next gen it shouldnt be hard to do, so no excuse!

nah, I know its bending...but... why don't you try this little experiment.

>make a fist

>clench the bottom of that fist with you other hand

 

now tell me how often your index finger(of the clenching hand) appears longer than your middle finger. Chances are, it isn't simply because it has more fist to travel over than your middle finger and is genetically usually shorter. Now in the image though, the middle finger is depicted as the shortest finger clutching Niko's hand so clearly, theres been a mistake. It also looks wrong. Thats what i was pointing out. colgate.gif

 

If by bending you mean, bending the figer itself so that its the only finger not clutching but rather digging into the hand, then i won't arguing with you there... except thats a rather uncomfortable way to handle a firearm. notify.gif

think of it this way

 

dont make any facial expressions take a picture of yourself

5 minutes later take another pic

 

what do you know the expressions look almost exactly the same

 

try it with different expressions as well you will look very simarlar

 

 

these 2 pics are simarlar but they are realistic

Well, most people look the same all the time. I'm glad he has any facial expressions at all. The other characters just shot like vegetables.

When Niko fires the machine gun it looks as though he's screaming. I think that he'll react differently to certain guns.

A lot of games have facial expressions for shooting..

in the end when you fire a gun at somebody, you're not gonna see it anyway, cause Niko's back will be towards the screen.

It's a lot cooler that in the trailer when Niko fires the assault rifle up the stairs, he slides back with the recoil.

well due to the fact he is holding the same pistol i think thats his pistol firing face, I expect him to have a massive evil smile on his face when he uses the rocket launcher lol

Who Cares? Your not going to be seeing that camera angle when he shoots because you woun't be able to see the person who your shooting, and camera angle is Gears of War style, and did you shoot like that in gears of war? No.

lol do you know what you are talking about, Im sure in gears of war when you blindfired you still saw your characters face. with the same feature confirmed to be in GTAIV then we will be able to see Nikos face. also did you forget that in previous GTA incarnations you have been able to rotate the camera 360 degrees around your character to see the front of him, which also allowed you to get the perspective asif the main character was shooting at you.

 

Also i think we shall see many cutscenes where niko is shooting at people and we can see the front of his face.

Rockstar cares.

 

So to all of you idiots who don't care, shut the f*ck up, and get out of the forum.

I noticed the two expressions were similar the minute I saw the newer screenshot. And the teeth are kind-of ridiculous. They really aren't looking realistic, at all. His hands are also too perfect in the shots, they wouldn't look so soft and young. I wish his expressions weren't so, downright weird. But I could go on and on..

b& for posting naughty pictures

You want him to have a unique facial expression for every action he preforms everytime single time? He is obviously going to have a similar facial expression everytime he preforms the same action ie this case firing a weapon. If you notice his face expression is not identical? Also his hand placements are slightly different too. You people expect way too much.

 

@ FrozenFire who are you to tell people to gtfo of the forums? All becasue they disagree with you. I respect you're opinion, but you are being too picky.

I wish for once, someone would read my posts, and try to understand what i'm saying.

 

I POINTED OUT that his facial expression is SIMILAR. I was simply STATING that. I never COMPLAINED. Nobody in this f*cking thread has complained about it, even.

 

Reading and comprehension please.
