The Lucasarts that produced all those legendary games was already long gone. Did they still even have their own internal development studio? I am not sure. They seemed to be more on the publishing side of things for the past decade.
It's not a shame: It's pretty. And films shouldn't look like video games. I don't go to the cinema to watch (or play) a video game: I can do that at home.
It's just that 48/60/100 fps looks VERY ugly. Danish director Lars von Trier shot a lot of his movies at higher framerate digital video to get a more "dirty" documentary-like look. It may be more realistic but I don't want a film like The Hobbit to look "realistic". I want it to look like a fantasy and that is what 24 fps makes it look like.
I am not broadcasting my ssid for Google to pick it up. I am broadcasting it for myself. How hard is that to understand?
My guess is that there won't be any need to accommodate oxygen and fuel for a return flight. That should save some weight.
