This is really stupid.

That glitch is basically Geralt's sword hilt not reflecting in realtime. Instead it has a cubemap of the outside environment. He even goes on to say this and explain it.

Don't understand what the news is here lol. Every game does this.

It's huge man. This is huge. I can't belive that this is even happening. I'm done. I'm done now. I've had enough of all these failed promises. I'm going to play Sonic Rings.

JK! This article is absurd.

I suppose its a glitch that what isnt being rendered on screen isn't reflected in the water either?

Some people just don't understand how videogames are made or rendered I guess. So dumb, though I do find it annoying when my sail on my boat blocks out a mountain and theres just this big empty square void reflected in the water, of course that is down to hardware limitations and how they decided to do raytracing etc.

I believe epics new open world engine allows reflecting of objects not being rendered on screen using very simple algorythms (be that reflections in water or how light bounces off an object), cannot wait for that to become the norm on consoles :) if it ever does this gen. (fingers crossed)

As for the cubemap on the sword hilt. Go home. Show me any current gen game that doesnt use cubemaps, especially in areas that you wouldnt really notice or not. Certain cubemaps are a bit more unforgiveable in this day and age, like having cubemaps for window/mirror reflections (looking at you second son, there is NOT an owl cafe behind me!!)

HOw did this crap get approved?

How did this get approved?... ALL games do this. Scopes on guns have done this for years, just not as obvious because they aren't metallic...
