    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Rockstar almost nailed face animation with Red Dead Redemption and I thought for sure they would perfect the technology with the next generation of consoles. I was wrong. They got it nailed less than a year later with 5 year old consoles. Amazing. Rockstar is on a hell of a winning streak.

    I had hoped they would pay a psychologist silly money to help perfect facial animations (if Jade Empire can pay someone to make up a language then.....) but this is a good stop gap measure I guess. Not to belittle them in the slightest (this is some awesome tech) but generation is surely a better goal than filming. Maybe they could try something similar to the PS1 era RPGs- voice the main plot but some of the side stories go "text only" but with muscle vectors and the like (I know this leads to a specific form of criticism).
    Also I am sure it will be better for the final game but I hope they have some good clipping prevention- if you are going for immersion as they appear to be having a neck float through a shirt collar is not so nice.

    I will have to put from my mind that poker game from early in the DS lifetime that did a similar thing with facial expressions.......

    This is truly amazing.
    All that's left to do is to get good actors.

    Great looking faces stuck on wooden bodies and stuck running at a choppy 30FPS? I don't know...

    The facial expression tech is very impressive but the in-game models still look like dolls.

    That's on of the guys from the tv show Madmen, Ken Cosgrove. I'm so getting this game.

    That's a really cool technique they're using. Reminds me of when they did that hologram on CNN.
