    What do you think of Prime's graphics? My brother keeps insisting that Prime is trying to look and be 'hardcore' and won't listen when I try to persuade him otherwise. He thinks this based on a few scenes he's seen, and he pointed out that sparks when bullets hit is a sign they're trying to look 'hardcore'

    I wouldn't say it's "hardcore" but it is certainly very detailed.

    The CG reminds me of the TF2 aesthetic. Which only makes me like it more.

    The visuals are pretty good, other than the blobby, simplistic human characters.

    But the environments, along with anything mechanical, are all great.

    In terms of being "hardcore", I'm not even sure what that is supposed to mean here.

    Well.. there 'hardcore' in the fact that the scenes are saved on a harddrive, and it most likely takes a multicore machine to render them :D

    I'd say it's found its style as a mixtur of realism and cartoon. So I would say it is trying to be itself.

    Your brother seems to have made a snap decision and is unwilling to admit he might have misjudged it. Kids, and some adults, do this.

    Sparks flying when a bullet hits is "hardcore" by your brother's standards?

    Who is your brother? 90's Kid, from Atop The 4th Wall?

    Anywho, PRIME's graphics are pretty decent, and there are some pretty cool action scenes (the only thing that remotely comes to hardcore would have to be when Megatron and Optimus were fighting back-to-back against Unicron's anti-bodies).

    I agree with Ryoku.

    Is that the internet sign for a vagina? ;)

    Hard core as in what? Gears of war! TFprime is a TV show and is going to be as good as it gets. as the series progresses and hopefully makes more money the more special and visual effects they will be able to bring in to the show. these guys are doing the best they can with what they got

    Im pretty happy with it so far and cant wait to see how the show matures

    I think its a yes and a no.

    I've noticed the various scratches on the characters, as well as various textures. Also, I think TF Prime went really hardcore during the episode 'One Shall'. We could see the tire threads on Megatron's face. There were good flame effects. The fight scenes are at time breathtaking.

    But at the same time, the design of the faces are more cartoonish. Both the autobots and the humans have pretty simple cartoon like faces. I think this adds emphasis on the emotions.

    All in all, I think TF Prime is hardcore when it needs to be.

    My original point was sarcasm, as I knew that "/v/" didn't mean "vagina". I just didn't know what it actually meant. I don't peruse 4chan, so thanks for letting me know. :)

    If by hardcore you mean a near realistic spin on it or movieish look then yes that is what they were going for. They say it in the extras on the dvd they were tring to make it like a half hour movie every week.
