Why is that anything special?

Well, that is better than a fair amount of games, but by growing AAA Hack and Slash standards...perhaps not so much.

raztad2599d ago

30fps is not very impressive for a hack and slash game. Well if they keep it locked is gonna be a solid experience.

SeanRL2599d ago

I honestly don't usually notice much of a difference, 60 fps is slightly smoother and 1080p is slightly nicer looking, but it usually doesn't matter.

The human eye can only see under 30 FPS: http://www.100fps.com/how_m...

So really your just seeing things if you think you can tell the difference between 30 frames and 60 frames. Its just when games dip under 25-30FPS that you start noticing things. God of War 3 ran at a variant frame rate but never dipped under 30FPS thats why that game plays as smooth as it does.

The human eye doesn't see things in "Frames per second".

There is a massive gameplay difference between 30 FPS and 60 FPS. 30 is the bare-minimum for a video game. 60+ is what you want for an optimal gameplay experience.

Ninja, that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. I can tell the difference between 30fps and 60fps with a simple glance. Stop spreading lies. And as Panda said, the human eye does not "see" in fps.

I'm actually starting to notice jerkiness in all movies! I really have to get into the movie in order not to notice it anymore and the first 20 mins of Avatar 3D was really F'ed, but when I got into the movie I didn't notice it anymore, but I am even seeing it on BD movies.

The film industry is gonna have to step it up a little with the framerates at least to 30fps; Gamers-eyes is becoming a fast growing condition amongst humans!

The E3 trailer was 60fps. Why show off the game at 60fps if the game is 30fps.
I was convinced to get the game due to the smooth movements in the trailer. I am not so sure now.

hay2599d ago

Because the game is still in development.

DaTruth2599d ago

What works in development doesn't work anymore after massive compression! I think we all know where I'm going with this!

Elven62599d ago

What does compression have to do with frames per second? IIRC the textures in most games are uncompressed by the system during load screens or on the fly before they are needed.

sickpup2599d ago

Make the game look good and play well and no one will care. People still play classic Nintendo games more than some modern games simply because they are fun to play. You can make the worst game in the world 60FPS and 1080p and no one will play it.

Baka-akaB2599d ago

i get what you are saying but then you'd be hardpressed to find nintendo games not running at 60fps ;p

tdrules2599d ago

so because old games weren't good looking new ones shouldn't even bother

BeaArthur2599d ago

I don't care about frames per second, I just care about how it plays. Who cares if it's only at 30 as long as the game is fun.
