    inXile has released a new Wasteland 2 screenshot on their tumblr page. The game is edging closer to completion, and beta testing is expected to start in October. As such, the art is starting to get more and more refined, as well.

    Looks much sharper (and better) than previous screen. Progress indeed.

    Also - doesn't show up properly on the forum.

    Tanks full of snake squeezins? Good. Even camera angle is getting better.

    The camera is fully movable. The angle isn't better, it's just been positioned differently.

    It would be great to have a few user-defined camera presets in that case, I consider free camera to be confusing sometimes. Also, they did not show user interface this time, so perhaps there's still a glimmer of hope for some improvement as well.

    Looks good. Can't wait to have Rail Nomads to gang up on me and drop toasters on their death.

    That's the end boss and it's happy because the party is woefully under leveled and equipped.

    yes, I hope there will be options to simply turn it off. I sure dont have any need for "bloom", just because someone has the feeling it makes things more realistic or what ever. I mean hey, if you like it, no problemo. Just dont force it on me.

    It looks ok-ish, I'll guess. But I am not sure if that's an actual ingame screenshot or a screencap from a video. The bloom seems to be quite heavy on the ground and I do not think that the blur in the background is needed.

    But well, maybe it feels better when the game is in motion. No idea.

    I can't judge how the game looks from an isolated screenshot, and also gameplay is more important than visuals.

    However I have trouble believing that content-wise this game is nearing completion.

    while I sure don't expect here some kind of crazy crysis like graphic, but in this day and age I think decent visuals are important and not really THAT difficult to achieve, considering how there are a lot more options available today. I know what you mean, and I agree. But still, if they released the game as some kind of ASCII text adventure ... I am not sure if thats really needed.

    Not incredible but it's by far good enough.
    Removing the bloom is needed though.
    My main issue is with the camera angle.
    I dislike "rotating" camera because not only you often have to "play" with it (and i find that unpleasant) but although because i never have the angle i want.
    Just finished SRR and the camera angle was simply perfect IMO, better than anything you could see in the W2 demo.
    While some camera angle in the W2 demo are quite good (much better than in NWN) it does not seem possible to have the perfect angle that i want with it, quite frustrating.

    In the years that followed, Thomas the Tank Engine grew increasingly bitter. Eventually his anger was such that he would attack strangers on sight, even friendly rangers.
