I wouldn't really expect most games to jump from 30fps to 60fps. The CPU upgrade wasn't that big. Same with texture quality, since RAM is the same amount and just slightly faster. (and some games like Horizon where the game was designed to run at 30hz in mind, so a jump to 60 isnt really that straightforward to make)
Expect improvements on things like lightning, shadows, rendering, effects, etc though.
Plus the fact that supersampling to 1080p wil...
not sure why you are getting so many disagrees, it was fixed through a firmware update, you can now use HDR in game mode. Its not just rtings.com , avforums has the same data, 21ms with Game Mode+HDR
honestly, not even then it works. Because this only raises your char level, you still have to grind the exp to get the skills for every single character/class. I've never understood the purpose of this item, its like in an MMO you used a level booster but you missed every single ability point you could have gotten up to that level
No it wont. What it has is an unlocked framerate mode, which bases on what DF has seen, it averages at 45+
i wouldnt be counting on 60fps for many games. Probably something along the lines of Rise of Tomb Raider:
1080p/30fps/very high settings
The CPU will be kind of a bottleneck for improving framerate in most cases, so as long as they can keep 30fps truly locked, im fine with that
No it doesn't. The CPU is the same, just a very minimal OC
Point by point, i couldnt disagree more with this article. At the latest, and still doubtfull, i expect a February-March release
1. Considering that the rumors were true and was confirmed to be in production earlier this year, the whole incentive thing is kind of a moot point because they were clearly already considering the release of the console. You seem to be going by the impression that something that was already in production could easily be delayed by another year ju...
Because Nintendo still owns 30% of that company and the publishing rights
the biggest difference is that the DLC will be free. Im ok paying for a MP only game (assuming its good and has enough content, 12 maps and 20+ characters is good enough for me) as long as there isnt a season pass involved.
Thats why the likes of Battlefront, R6 and Evolve lost me
overall, its bad news for Nintendo games for the rest of the year and probably a weird E3, but for the NX I really see all these news as something very possitive .
- Complete lack of games for WiiU this year means that they shifted focus internally a while back , so hopefully (coupled with the rumors of a unified development and consoles), we should see more games at launch and the first year.
- It gives devs more time to port games and we already see so ...
im not being harsh, just because its free doesnt mean it has to be enough to bring me back. No matter how you look at it, pretty much everything is reskinned content. There are no new areas, the strike is in the same areas of the moon as before, they didnt even add new rooms for the new PoE. Most of the "new weapons" are revamped year 1 ones. The problem isnt really about getting new armor or weapons, is that the ac...
ill just wait for the proper expansion, too much reskinned content to pull me back with other games like Zelda TP, Quantum and Ratchet to play. The actual "story" in it looks like it can be completed in less than an hour and the rest will be mostly grinding the new version of PoE, Trials and the Hard Raid. Might give this content a chance a couple of weeks before the expansion, to kind of ramp up for it
Wow, whats with the disagrees? I know its a demo but its pretty damm unpolished Lots of lod and pop in, especially the shadows It has no antialiasing whatsoever, i cant remember the last game i saw with edges so pixelated Some water reflections are really weird, especially in the town portion And the one i actually cared the most, the framerate is not looking even remotely close to a locked 30fps, i can definitely see more a...
well, first of all the patent wasnt leaked, thats public information. 2nd, patents usually include the most basic design possible for whatever device its supposed to be about, so it can cover the most. The fact that it looks EXACTLY like the patent image could actually be seen as a negative point in regards to the credibility
its really not that complicated. If you want to return a game (digital or not) its because you dont want to play it anymore. If you have plans to play again, you keep it. Right now, if you dont want to play a digital game anymore, you delete it from your HDD and never touch it again, or see any money for it. Now, MS is offering to give you 10% for something that you never want to play again... and its a ripoff because????
@Godmars290 really? The Division is not even a month old and you need an example of a game advertised and covered to hell and beyond by IGN? Do you remember the score they gave to that game?....
I dont know about you, but thats pretty close to a thousand bucks unless the rest of the components are pretty crap (plus the $600 on the vr device). So im not sure what you are disagreeing him for, its not like he was being dismissive in his statement
Yet here's the thing. If they are getting a bunch of day one sales "before people find out about X", those are sales for people who already had the game preordered and didnt care for reviews anyway You are assuming that the amount of people that was going to cancel their day 1 copy based on reviews is somehow bigger than the people that are cancelling their preorder because they would rather wait and see. Either way they lose day 1 sales, so its...
Option 1:if you were planning on waiting for reviews, so shouldnt bother with Day 1 reviews either way, so just give it a week or so after launch and see proper reviews. In that case, it shouldnt affect you that they didnt give review copies. Option 2:If you already preordered the game, then you dont care about reviews and made your decision already, so the lack of review copies is also irrelevant. Chances are that if you fall into a middle point between thos...
Up until the last 10-15min, yeah i'd say it was pretty amazing. Probably even better than ME2, then the ending happened...and it was all dissapointment at such a horrible conclusion. They clearly didnt know how to finish the story after the rewrite. Still, probably one of my favorite franchises and the 3rd game is 95% great haha
