No masterpiece by a long shot.
Bioshock was though, in its time.
Good review. I -personally- would give it a 5/6 at most.
I found the game shallow, pedantic and stuck in 2005 gameplay mechanics.
They also forgot who we are, same as Squeenix
Percentages? Crytek knows them all
I don't know bladefist, if it's about defensiveness, a lot can be said too about the likes of you.
No one said PS4 is the second coming, but a mighty fine looking console, at least compared to its preceding generation, obviously.
a couple of paragraphs in this blog are right out sore and unnecesary. "sony is my god" blah blah is the kind of dumb and cultist mentality you're adscribing to anyone defending the PS4 hardware.
talking out of your cornholio
crytek aren't very good handling and understanding percentages guys, you've got to excuse Yerli.
I can't believe people are disagreeing with delboy, are you guys THAT dense?
the secondary chip is more likely a low power RISC derivative, similar to the demux/decode on-the-fly video processors found in bluray players and some cameras; stop with the ROM, RAM debate guys, lol.
for f***'s sake... mixelon, I'm sorry to say but it is you who's mixing frames per second with refresh rate in the first place. Hence my example of the alundra non-valid framerate/hz upconvertion (...)"[motion interpolation 30fps converts really well into higher FPS]"<- this was your original comment and the reason of my following statements.
I was just stating the obvious,(almost the same things you guys said BTW), TV's motion interpolation is no...
no, you're comparing some editing suit with TV's M.I. You can't "simply" create unexisting additional frames of real time animation in a videogame if said source content does not have them, not with some TV filter, we're not talking professional photography, high speed video or else here. It creates new frames, but it can't, *won't* unlock information that was not there in the first place.
Otherwise it would be easy to upconvert some PAL game...
As the name implies, frame interpolation in modern TV's does not add real frames to the picture; in other words, you're seeing the same amount of information. You know this of course, but I want to make it clear in case someone else's wondering.
But that's no problem if it looks smoother right?
well...adding fake frames brings latency problems, control lag, added response time.
That said, I enjoy locking some non V-Synced games to 24p...
...You want some gummy bears or something?
To be honest, I like predicting too.
I've been saying for almost a year that the PS4 would be a beast, a mighty CAL/OpenCL GPGPU, while everybody was saying the opposite "it will be a small upgrade", "they will follow the wii path", "don't expect much better graphics"
Well I'm calling it now: what we saw lately is NOTHING compared to what the system will be capable of...
"People now have 64GB DDR3 2400mhz ram, Quad SLI GTX 690 setups"
That's ridiculous. Get real.
Versus on PS4 = Half way there, fanbase explodes and old fanbase begins the long, mutually awaited forgival process.
VII, VIII -(well executed)- Remake on PS4 = ?
Crytek is talking out of their cornhole yet again, what an unexpected surprise!
PS4 is a gigantic GPU with ultrafast memory; expect beastly graphics.
THEY HAVE SOME NERVE! They've been teasing this game and living from hype and steam for about 7 years now, and suddenly, finally, they have a...perfume.
What's next? selling a fashion line before the game even exists? Let me guess, FF13-4, with thousands of fresh, different DLC swarosky purses, right out of squeenix's army of clown designers
By the way, it may not look like it, but I honestly found the main blog post most interesting and well written.
I was replying to this whole trend of establishing some kind of fanboy safeguard around the concept of the Wii U not being defined as "Next gen" partially, which is getting quite old, unnerving and bleh.
[email protected]^: look man, the SNES had a clear edge over the Megadrive, colors, sound, sprites... the Megadrive CPU was faster. I wa...
Who cares about the label and status of the Wii U being next gen or not? Why is this detail of capital importance?
With all due respect, I don't care what you own either. Why the need to tell me and the world? Need to convince somebody about your objectivity and neutrality?
My butt-mad might be showing, but it's baboons hipnotized by Nintendo and Apple the ones throwing stones from glass houses.
I listen to your words, yet you haven...
Wii U is an Insult with a huge gothic "I", no matter how verbosely you try and spin it, since it uses vastly outdated technology of yore, hence the "WiiU is not next-gen" argument, which is a perfectly valid way to remark the reality of its innards.
While is also perfectly valid -as an opinionated piece- that you go and decide to play the Wii U white knight role, it's not really a matter of protocol or denomination.
Why would anyone ca...
