CGI Digest August from Playsense

CGI digest of TOP cinematics games' videos of the August: Call of Duty®: Vanguard, Battlefield 2042, Destine 2: The Withc Queen and many other.

Call of Duty®: Vanguard - Official Teaser

Good environment detalization (in places). Lots of photoscans, which adds to realism. Interesing atmospheric lighting (in places).

A nice take on hero exposure via an illusion made out of environment objects.

Battlefield 2042 | Exodus Short Film

Liked the lighting in the first and the last parts of the clip. Deep light with a mood. Atmospheric picture. Good camera. Great modeling and texturing, and I can believe that shading of the protagonist! Excellent emotions; I can believe these, too!

A great story, a nice conflict and a great resolution. Employed a 'cross-cutting' object to tell the story. Nice dialogues and voice acting.

HUMANKIND™️ - Launch Trailer

All close-ups are live action. If not, respect for clothes simulation.

A great example of using humor and hyperbole to convey the game's main message.

Absolution | Sentinels of Light 2021 Cinematic - League of Legends

Nice stylized animation.

Classically even and well-calculated LoL stories. Predictable quality.

Destiny 2: The Witch Queen - Reveal Trailer

Nice surroundings and atmosphere… and the main anti-hero

A nice example of classic anti-hero narrative with philosophical elements.

SAINTS ROW Official Announce Trailer

Nice lighting and environment. Good camera.

Energetic action with understandable heroes. Sufficient exposure of characters within a brief period of time. A dense short story.

Spine Official Trailer

The night rain came out well. The lighting works great, too. Action camera is good. BUT! You have to look at Mielgo and compare them.

Season Five Cinematic | Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War & Warzone™

Group fight choreography quite good. Lacks the energy in places, but still good. Lighting and environment are both good enough.

A classic "end of the world start" with an open finale. Leaves you eager to know what comes next.

Party Like A Queen! (Clash of Clans Official)

"Pleasant and merry madness :) Nice animation, nice choreography."

Nice allusion to a classical escape to a party. Pleasant humor.

Diablo II: Resurrected - Act I Cinematic

One of the best references for lighting. Rembrandt-level depth, the saturation of the scenes with light—both awesome. Character detalization and shading—both awesome. Light stylization/exaggeration—appropriate.

No comments here :)

Paladins - Saati Reveal Trailer

12 FPS stylization. That's all :)

Fortnite Impostors - Official Launch Teaser Trailer

Good stylized animation.

Halo Infinite | Multiplayer Season 1 Cinematic Intro

The main heroine is really "alive". Good facial animation.

Interesting introduction of an observer character. A comprehensive and complete story.

Far Cry 6: Official Story Trailer

Nice scan of the protagonist's face. Looks similar :)
