PC Games has impressive screenshots showing Fallout: New Vegas in max settings with 8x Anti Aliasing and 15x Anisotropic Filtering. Check the link!
This... Isn't exactly impressive. It's only running in 1680x1050. And 8x AA and 15x AF... Also not impressive. And the Fallout/Oblivion engines aren't ever really taxing.
Yea, if you unequipped your weapon and looked at the environment from a distance, it really doesn't look to bad. Up close though, the game is ugly as hell lol.
"Maxed out, 8xAA, 15xAF" "Maxed out" "Maxed" Reality: 1680x1050 This site is a disgrace to PC gaming.. how about 16xMSAA, 16xAF, 1920x1080 AT LEAST, 1920x1200 preferably and 2560x1600 as a special treat.
They have 1080p-Shots?!
still not impressive.
Hardly what you'd consider an impressive looking game/engine, but a quality experience none the less. At least there's a lack of jaggies.
Hmm I do like that old world feeling I get from looking at the screenshots.
All the processing and post-processing power in the world is irrelevant without some decent artists making decent assets.
Those shots are not maxed out. I have fallout 3 modded so that the draw distances are literally 50 times larger. The shadows and water res have all been cranked up and i'm running 32csaa...I think that is closer to being maxed out. Especially when it STILL runs at 60 frames at 1080p. The maximum settings in game can be maxed out on a gtx260, last gens mid range card. Thank god for .ini edits. Already posted in another article but it bears repeating..especially when we get 10 comparison articles in 5 minutes. http://img209.imageshack.us... http://img37.imageshack.us/... http://img180.imageshack.us... http://img140.imageshack.us...
Fallout isn't really graphically impressive, its not a ugly game by no means, but it really doesn't tear down your system, only if you have max view distance and thats just a lack of video memory ,not graphical power
Those screens are maxed out? Really? cause they don't look it and if they are - color me unimpressed
1920x1080 with all setting maxed except AA(4x and 8x are virtually no different for me at that resolution) and it looks good but its not gonna win any awards
Still one of the ugliest games ever made. And that's not because it's set in a wasteland, you can do good wasteland graphics (see Red Dead Redemption for how to do environments).
I think a more accurate comparison would be RAGE
Yeah, I was just thinking of games that are already out. There is that one by Ubisoft too, looks really amazing. Of course Crysis 2 as well, it's a different location and it's not exactly post-apocalpytic but the buildings are suitably destroyed and the city is void of life, etc. Fallout 3 (and NV) is just a sea of bland textures, little variation at all. But the thing is you CAN have variation and pretty textures.
yeah well this an engine that's over 2 years old so it's definitely not the prettiest and on top of that the glitches are just insane. AC2, GTA 4, RDR are all examples of massive open world games where glitches were there but weren't gaming breaking. I don't get why Obsidian/Bethesda can't have some type of QC and testing beforehand.
I think its more like 8x AA and 16x AF not "8AA, 15AF"
Those pics should be in EEGRA's contest of depressing game shots.
I keep thinking where the hell are the shadows?
