Maninja1560d ago

jocomat91559d ago

same. Killzone just is too sci fi for me. i enjoyed killzone 2 multi a lot.

Maninja1559d ago

It's not that I don't like Killzone, I just prefer battlefields multiplayer

@cunnil^^^ wow dude set your priorities right before speaking and no, no game on the PC is better looking graphically than Killzone shadow fall and do you know why that is? It is because you are most likely talking about Crysis 3 which btw has been compared to Killzone shadow fall and fell completely short against it. But do you know why Crysis 3 on the pc compels in comparison to Killzone shadow fall? It's because you are comparing a game from this gen to a game coming out next gen. No matter how strong your PC is and how capable is, games from this gen will never reach your PC's fullest potentials because developers of this gen limit the games capabilities. It's not always the better specs that makes a game look better, its mostly the game itself and how its developed that makes the game look good. Now if you were comparing killzone shadow fall say to a next gen Crysis then yes I would agree with you because then you are running the game in a bigger potential of your PC. As for any game on current gen no game looks better graphically. You are either a huge fanboy or just dilusional

elhebbo161560d ago

also to run crysis 3 on max you need a pretty beast PC, Killzone SF is running on a $400 console. which is fucking amazing if you ask me.

Geezus1560d ago (Edited 1560d ago )

^^^ lol is this guy (ado) serious... killzone shadowfall does NOT look better than crysis on the pc running at its best as a matter of fact killzone is still doing 30fps which for a next gen game is pretty weak to say the least even COD Ghost is doing 1080p 60fps

XabiDaChosenOne1560d ago

Wip3ou7 does 1080p and 60 fps also, does that make it next gen two? GT6 is doing 1080p and 60fps aswell, is that a next gen game by your standards?

Shadowolf1560d ago (Edited 1560d ago )

We are all most certainly entitled to our opinions but to make the argument that COD Ghost is running in 1080p @ 60FPS as though that suffices the notion that those target specs are factors to support your argument will be severely shot down when comparing a side-by-side comparison of Killzone Shadow Fall and COD Ghost which you can view here:

Watching Killzone Shadow Fall running at 30fps next to COD Ghosts 60fps doesn't strongly support your position.

starchild1560d ago

No, of course KZSF doesn't look better than Crysis 3. He wants to believe that because he is a fanboy. Crysis 3 is a more advanced game in most areas. This is demonstrably true and no amount of denial changes it.

Hell, even Digital Foundry said as much:

"Killzone Shadow Fall has moments of exceptional majesty and some beautiful animation, but the in-game concepts revealed last night failed to truly excite, and even in terms of technical accomplishment - something readily associated with Guerrilla Games - you put the video side-by-side with Crysis 2 and its sequel and it feels a step off the pace."

Even against Crysis 2 it looks a step behind.

Geezus1560d ago (Edited 1560d ago )

im not saying ghost looks better than shadowfall not even close but 1080/60fps should be the standard for most games next- gen shoot every xbox one launch game is hitting that mark. 60 fps allows for more fluid gameplay especially during mp bouts all im saying is cod ghost the lowest common denominator for fps next gen (in terms of quality) is beating killzone in that regards so saying Killzone looks better than crysis on a Pc is a joke

Ragthorn1559d ago

Can't compete with Crysis 3 grass though!

Dat Grass!

Shadowolf1559d ago

@ Geezus,

There is no denying that Crysis 2 and 3 are true graphical benchmarks running on PC specs however, in fairness to Killzone Shadow Fall, a game which is currently in development currently running in 1080p at 30fps, at the moment rivals Crysis' best efforts. Again, and for the moment I'm not saying Shadow Fall looks better than Crysis 3, but for a game still in development I believe those odds way heavily in favor of Shadow Fall.

Check out these new in-game character renders for Shadow Fall which look truly amazing -

NeloAnjelo1559d ago

Yeah but COD:Ghosts looks like shit. The fact you even mention that when talking about graphics and next gen shows your thoughts on the game. I'd take 30 fps with amazing graphics any day. Rather than crap textures, copy and paste bland maps and environments, and not to mention scale. KZ has always looked better, played better, and felt much more realistic than anything in COD. So stop mentioning that game as it's clearly not in this league!

PurpHerbison1559d ago

The next gen standard should be 60FPS. No ifs ands or buts.

Divine1559d ago (Edited 1559d ago )

and kzsf is mutilating cod ghost. go sit down . but i do agree that the standard for next gen should be 60fps

pc games from 2008 look better than killzone shadowfall dude, the game isn't even current gen to a pc gamer

mattdillahunty1559d ago

PC fans decided to attack this article! how cool is that!

MysticStrummer1560d ago

It's very cool. They really don't understand how insecure it makes them look to troll console articles.

fenome1560d ago

I know right! We've actually got the PC Elitists checking out our stuff now! HAHA

cunnilumpkin1560d ago

only to point out that it looks like our games from 2008, finally, a huge improvement over the ps3 and Xbox's 1999 720p resolutions, but still, all ps4 and xbox1 games look last gen compared to pc games from 2011

Clunkyd1560d ago

Theyre just mad that they dont get any attention LOL

elhebbo161560d ago

I know that GG can deliver an amazing single player experience. I just hope they go all out with the multiplayer.

wishingW3L1560d ago (Edited 1560d ago )

I'm expecting vehicles and mechas in the MP now that they have the room for it thanks to the higher specs of the console compared to the PS3.
