"Our massive interview with Lords of the Fallen dev Michele Giacalone is finally published. We talked about the game, PC, consoles and development techniques."
This game, looks really interesting. Lots of good information, can't wait to play it.
Still prefers PC
If you have a lot of money to build a PC, it's always going to be better.
Well techincally PC is a one time investment. My secondary rig is now 6 years old. Features a I5 750 CPU from 2008. All it needed was a GPU upgrade for next gen games. So it was outperforming the previous consoles when i first built it and today it carries on beating the new consoles. Funnily enough it just needed a 300usd(could have been even done with a 200usd gpu) GPU upgrade to make that happen. Meanwhile it can still play all my games bought last gen. No pay to go online fees, and cheaper price per game even today. All it needed was a new heat sink to overclock to 4ghz and a GPU. Its again Set for another generation of console ass whooping. So yea i could argue that system cost me way less then any console could cost me. Not to mention even if i did choose to completely remake that system I wouldnt need to buy Casing, HDDS, Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, RAM, DVD drive, OS all over again which would significantly cut the cost of upgrading it(making it new basically). Hence no i would think console gaming is much more expensive if you just dig a little deeper into the facts beyond.
You don't need lots of money, the investment is only a $100-$300 more than a console if you build it yourself but you're not paying for online and games are continuously on sale through many different sites. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/x...
Only $500-$600 needed to build a PC for games.
unfortunately the pc advantage is only seen in multiplats which sony and microsoft dont build their platforms to be competitive vs pc in else theyed build platforms that could easily destroy any pc, but that wouldnt be cost effective exclusives is where i dont see that pc advantage sorry pc fans
@GamingTruth Exclusives is all personal preference, C&C, StarCraft, Total War, Company of Heroes, LoL, Dota, Divinity, Wasteland 2, Civilization are all great exclusives (C&C has a few games on consoles but the controls and framerate just don't work well.) + mod support for games like Fallout, TeS ect.
Nice interview. I hope to see VXGI, Async Compute and DX12 all in action very soon! In 2-3 years, I bet that games will look much better than they do now.
PC is a better "gaming machine" than consoles.
Provided that you have the money, yes. Otherwise, probably not
Negative console gaming is expensive. Check hidden costs.
initial costs is what matters and consoles cant crash
according to latest previews this game will b bargain bin by xmas trying to hard to copy dark souls but with no personallity or character gameplay artwork bosses very underwhelming
Hey we have a negative nancy here. It seems like all you post is negative crap. You were just in the Dragon Age Inquisition article bashing that game too. Personally, Darks Souls is the one that is lacking personality. The gameplay is good, but the storytelling, characters and graphics are all sub par. I'm not saying it is bad, but it definitely has its weak points. Lords of the Fallen at least has the potential to tell a better story with more interesting characters. We'll see how it turns out, but so far it seems fairly promising.
Which previews have you read? Because I have read the complete opposite so far.
This game looks more alive and interesting than Bloodbourne
If you're a casual and like generic-Skyrim like art style then yea.
How the hell is BloodBourne not interesting and alive?
He didn't say Bloodbourne wasn't interesting or alive.
You paid $600 for a console day 1 that promised 1080p game play but never delivered a triple or double A game at that resolution. 7 years later you paid $400 for a machine that on day one couldn't run a real next gen game BF4 at 1080p So that's $1000 for two consoles in 7 years and 1080p is still hit or miss but meanwhile a any $800 Pc built from the ground up 7 years ago will have you gaming at 1080p and with a $200 upgrade have you very close to 4k with some reduced settings like no shadows. So all this PC Gaming is pricey crap is just that CRAP. I'M still doing non gaming functions still burning did or Blu-ray but playing all games at 1080p or higher and paying super low prices for games so I don't get the pc gaming is pricey when my machines do more and guarantee me 1080p
''You paid $500 for an xbone console day 1 that promised 1080p game play but never delivered a triple or double A game at that resolution.''...fixed! ;)
Oh, wow. BF4 wasn't 1080p. Who cares, the game was ass and completely broken on release on all platforms. Nearly every other game on PS4 is 1080p, nice try though. An $800 PC from 7 years ago will NOT run modern games in 1080p, and no, a $200 upgrade would not get that old rig close to 4K. PC gaming is great, but ignorant people like you give the rest of us PC gamers a bad name.
Lol you have to be on crack if you think a 7 year old PC cant run modern games in 1080p. Wake up, hardware industry has progressed alot. However due to games being developed for consoles(which are of very old tech) software has not progressed much. Hence PCs dont need much upgrades. A 7 year old PC with first gen I5 equipped with current gen GPU can easily maul any current console. You have to be delusional if you dont think so. Current consoles come equipped with tablet CPUs lol and the GPUs arent so great either. A 7 year old I5 easily out paces the tablet CPUs(hell it will give modern cpus a run for their money once overclocked) in current consoles. A good GPU is all thats required. On the plus side the same 7 year old system will run just about every PC game ever released. Try running a ps3 game on your shiny ps4, have fun watching the blank screen. BF4 not running in 1080p on the PS4, is a sign of whats to come in the future. BF4 isnt even proper next gen, since its present on the old consoles. Any real next gen game which cant be done on the old consoles will likely not run in 1080p on the PS4, keep hoping its not happening.
I know what you mean I get tired of all these false low end rig claims. A quick search can show people exactly what PC is capable of in multiple configurations all over youtube.
these 'mauled' consoles are sh1ttin all over your little garbage trash pcs ps4 and xbox one exclusives graphics sh1t on anything on pc, eat that pc wish it could come anything near ps4 and xbox one exclusive in graphics easily or hard
This game got 9/10 in polish magazine CD-Action.
Pc gamers are social rejects too busy making out with their lates graphic cards then having a life, console gamers have lifes though
Haha spoken like a true virgin.
