they should of locked the frame rate at 30 fps

starchild823d ago

Absolutely. I hate these fluctuating framerates. Developers have always capped their games' framerates at 30fps for smoother motion and more consistent controller response, and now because of all the hubbub about 60fps this generation some devs somehow have it in their minds that simply unlocking the framerate is something desirable. Well, wrong. There's a reason framerates have always been capped at 30fps or 60fps.

EVERY 30fps game would run above 30fps if you uncapped the framerate. There is NOTHING impressive about it at all. The only thing it does is make the motion and camera panning jerky and juddery, and the controller response becomes inconsistent.

kevnb823d ago (Edited 823d ago )

Did you hate god of war 3? What you are talking about isn't because of an unlocked framerate but because of a poor implementation of vsync. Adaptive vsync and triple buffering make things a lot better. Most serious pc gamers hate locked framerates, and these are gamers who can lock the framerate of any game they want.

Sy_Wolf823d ago

The level of wrong you reached is impressive.

Army_of_Darkness823d ago (Edited 823d ago )

I don't want a locked frame rate of 30fps. Having it fluctuate between 30-60fps is perfectly fine since most games that do that still run pretty smooth to me. The closer to 60fps,the better! Like someone said, God of war 3 is a perfect example of this unlocked frame rate and I loved that game.

Septic823d ago

I don't see what the big deal is. Infamous SS had varibale FPS and to be honest, I didn't even take notice of it all that much.

KUV1977823d ago

Killzone has a variable framerate too. I never noticed it there but in infamous it was really bad for me. Having the option to either cap or run unlimited is nice. inFamous looks much better for me now.

Palitera823d ago (Edited 823d ago )

1. inFAMOUS SS before the patch was very annoying to me. With frame rate THAT VARIABLE you never know how the controls will react.

2. Killzone SF, on the other hand, I thought unplayable.

So, yeah, I really dislike it and most of you will probably cheer when they release the mandatory patch to cap the frame rate, exactly as you did with Second Son.

combatcash823d ago

It really depends on the game, with some games you don't really notice the small drops but with some it can damage the whole experience.

"1. inFAMOUS SS before the patch was very annoying to me. With frame rate THAT VARIABLE you never know how the controls will react.

Man, i feel sorry for you, you are either unfortunately, ridiculously sensitive to control lag or ridiculously exaggerating. Cuz in no way, is KZ "unplayable" and Infamous unreliable

"So, yeah, I really dislike it and most of you will probably cheer when they release the mandatory patch to cap the frame rate, exactly as you did with Second Son."

And while its true that some Sony fanboys welcomed the frame rate cap, some didnt and its not the guys saying it now.

No limit and a framerate that changes between 30fps and 60fps as two different things. You should not really notice stuttering if done right.

S2Killinit823d ago

This game is looking amazing btw

stavrami-mk2823d ago

I would play it but amazing is not a word I would use I think this game will average 6's. It seems generic and some of the gameplay and stealth kills I've seen are poor at best. Don't get me wrong I will play it when it goes bargain basement in about 7-8 weeks

Christopher822d ago

Well, he said it looks amazing, not that it is amazing.

And, your opinion is less worthwhile than his. You somehow already dictate it to be bargain bin material after having not played it at all.

I'll be picking this up because the previews have been good, gameplay shown is not bad, it's only $40, and I need a new RPG to play. Whether it's good or not, that's to be seen.

stavrami-mk2822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

Cgoodno I've not come here for an argument it's just my opinion and as for my opinion not being as worthwhile as his just shows u have your head stuck up your arse and think your opinion is of higher value due to amazing pompous "bubble" collection.here in UK it's 46 pound or around 65 bucks and while you may still buy this on day 1 that's your choice go ahead. Just no need be a prick about it

Christopher822d ago

*** for my opinion not being as worthwhile as his just shows u have your head stuck up your arse and think your opinion is of higher value***

You should re-read what I typed. I explained why your opinion is of less value than his. You can say my head is stuck up my arse, but at least I'm not prejudging a game that I haven't even played.

stavrami821d ago (Edited 821d ago )

lol you should read what you said i pre judged a game ….lol of course i did every human on this planet judges and pre judges everything they do, see ,smell, listen to, you fool ….you have done it yourself here let me show u …..I'll be picking this up because the previews have been good, gameplay shown is not bad, it's only $40, and I need a new RPG to play. Whether it's good or not, that's to be seen. i have said the exact opposite to you we both have pre judged it . don't push on me what your doing yourself .please don't reply because even with your bubble status being high it does not make your opinions more worth while it just means you been brown nosing . goodnight

ps. bargain bin material does not mean its shit just that it gone down in price like 90 percent of games do nowadays within 2 months , why would i be picking it up at all if i thought it was shit . c'mon catch up slow coach

If it get's around 8/10 from reviews it will be day one for me!

Palitera823d ago (Edited 823d ago )

I think it won't reach the 80s. The combat looks very dull and the hits completely lack impact.
Some of you might like it, I know, but since Dragon's Dogma I realized how an absurdly high HP count can ruin a game's combat system.

ScareFactor823d ago

I think Lords of Fallen will be better. I will still probably try this regardless

Salooh823d ago

Lords of Fallen will be better but not that far for me. The witcher 3 and dragon age are the rpgs that i'm looking forward to . These will be normal games.

VforVideogames823d ago (Edited 823d ago )

I think ps4 owners would buy any game at this point since it lack a triple AAA title because as of now all the games suck, I mean killzone has the worst AI in history, resogun is fun for 15 minutes and infamouse its no fun and has outdated graphics.

choujij823d ago (Edited 823d ago )

Ba da ba ba ba, you're full of s***.

Farsendor1822d ago

i will buy any game regardless not because i think im lacking games to play.

DrJones822d ago

Infamous has incredible graphics. You need glasses.

AceBlazer13822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

You really wanna run this game dude?

PS4
Final Fantasy XIV
The Show 14
Dynasty Warriors 8
inFamous Second Son
Amazing SpiderMan 2
Bound By Flame

Xbox One
PvZ Garden Warfare
Titanfall
Kinect Sports

At this point Xbox owners are more in need of the indies than PS4, too bad PS4 got the indies as well.So go back to praying you get some release dates for those cgi trailers you got at E3 cause 2014 ain't lookin to sweet for Xbox One owners so far.

Killzone has dumb A.I and inFamous has outdated graphics.Have you seen Titanfall ? You should form your own opinion before echoing your fellow Xbox fanboys, cause your sounding mighty foolish.

Goddam it stop feeding the trolls.

If I had to guess what would have been the trending articles for the new generation... I would have never guess it would "confirming" 30-60fps or 1080p...

Npugz7823d ago

I like the option to have locked framerate or fluctuating framerate!
