: : I'm sort of half blargh on the XBLA graphics. The wall textures and placed

: Yay! Someone actually noticed I made that! :P

I'm glad I found it! :)

: I generally play with the XBLA HUD, HD Textures, HD Weapons in Hand, and HD

: they only look good when they're hi-res, otherwise it feels like a waste.
: My opinion towards the Weapons in Hand is mixed: the Fusion Pistol and AR
: rock, but the Magnum Pistols and Fists absolutely suck. The Pistols look
: like I'm pointing them down or something, and the Fists, my god - am I
: punching or doing a gesture?

I play with the HD textures and scenery, but not with the HD weapons or critters (of course). I agree about the pistol and fist being the most objectionable -- the punches look more like something you would see in a hissy slap fight, and the pistol, really, I just cannot get over the finger-on-trigger reload animation, especially since one of my favorite WIH animations is the original M2 pistol.

About the HD wall textures, the thing that pleases me the most is how much effort was made to be faithful to the original M2 textures. It means I can enjoy a cleaner hi-res experience without the game looking too different from what I remember. It is an experience of enhanced nostalgia. :)
