I blanked out during the show, or I would have noticed that HK-47’s habit of characterizing his own statements was re-used by the Elcor in Mass Effect.
I also mentioned how this one Czerka woman has a better facial design than anyone in Skyrim, despite her artist having a fraction of the polygons and texture budget to work with. I’m happy to report that Bethesda finally seems to be overcoming this. I’ve spent a few hours with Fallout 4, and it looks like the scourge of the potato-faced Bethesda mannequins is over. I’m not suggesting they’re the best or anything, but I think Bethesda is finally able to stand with its contemporaries.
But I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for artists that can do amazing things under tight texture and polygon constraints, and this game does a lot of that.
