I can't wait to see the amount of detail in this game! I wonder if my beard would bring the ps4's gpu to its knees?!?! Really excited to play this!

MasterCornholio1348d ago

I remember the days when Snakes moustache used to be a thing.

No_Limit1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

Just like Driveclub before it, will DS submit any articles regarding gameplay or story other the the usual PS4 exclusives headline of "amazing graphics on 1080p"?

No doubt the game will look glorious but I want some preview regarding how it plays and how engaging it is so some of us will get more of an idea if it is worth our $60 come launch day or not for some of us folks that cares more about gameplay than 1080p. Is that too much to ask?

Even when the article is about frame is still part of the headline. Just WOW.

fdkenzo1348d ago

a friend has finish the game, he give an 8,5 , he told me that the game have a solid gameplay, great graphics, exceptional soundtrack.....he finished the game in 9 hours on normal mode....

Another friend have the game, he have 3 hours of playtime, he says that is impressed by the game until now...

can wait to get my copy...

BitbyDeath1348d ago

Only a week to go before we get our hands on it. Will be plenty of feedback then.

No_Limit1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

Let's hope so. Driveclub was also released months ago and all we got was more "glorious graphics screenshots articles" from DS.

Speak_da_Truth1348d ago

Yeah!! As if Dualshockers hasn't posted any leaked gameplay videos of this game at all. sigh!
But hey No_Limit limited himself from watching or noticing any those videos so he can come later and push his agenda with Dualshockers for posting driveclub articles instead of Forza.

No_Limit1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

I am sorry but leeching on other people's work and copying a YouTube URL of their video and then proceed to add in a dramatic headline like this one:
"Leaked The Order: 1886 Videos Looks Fantastic Even Recorded Off a TV Screen" does not constitute as a preview from their own work or opinion.

As a matter of fact, DS hardly have an original opinion piece where they actually test out the game themselves and post their own sceenshots, videos, or write any actual critique of any games for that matter. It is all using other sources and write their own little spin on it and an Awesome headline for bait and that is pretty much it.

Yeah! Because Dualshockers is the only website that does that. sigh! I don't see you attacking other websites that site others as their source. Besides, I don't know what is wrong about using others peoples work as long as you give them credit.

Mkai281347d ago

I hope it is more then just graphics, I don't want that to become a trend. From what I understand so far, it seems to have an interesting story.

PS: didn't you have three bubbles just now? Wow, no mercy..

DigitalRaptor1347d ago (Edited 1347d ago )

This is just another example of your ignorance and your laziness, No_Limit.

Your willingness to pretend that DualShockers' content is a problem for you when you have openly admitted to not having visited the site in well over a year. All the information is already out there, and in fact has been reported by DualShockers and several other sites over the past couple of days. It's not anyone else's fault that you are too lazy to do research that most people who are looking forward to the game are willing to do.

Where do you think most of this information is coming from? NeoGAF. Where does a huge chunk of gaming news originate? NeoGAF. The vast majority of gaming sites "leech" of that forum. Go and read the impressions on gameplay and the other attributes on NeoGAF, because it sounds like the only research you do is in the comments sections of N4G, spinning things you've heard from others instead of discovering for yourself.

Go and do your research instead of complaining about Abriael as if he's insulting your favourite Xbox game.

"Frame rate is very good"

It better be rock solid. The game is already running at sub-1080p and 30fps.

Oh I'm so sorry if I offended any letterbox 24fps "cinematic feel" supporters out there. I don't know about you, but if the game is already aiming for sub-1080p and 30fps, I'd at least expect it to achieve a constant 30fps.

error131348d ago

But it's rendered at 1080p native tho. -_-

PygmelionHunter1348d ago

I understand the game looks really good, but 1920x800 Is not 1080p.

mkis0071348d ago

The black bars are rendered...the middle of the screen has just as good res. As if it was without the bars. ..the res you claim this to be is not accurate...the quality would be lowered if it was 1920x800

PygmelionHunter1348d ago

The black bars are composed of the missing 480 vertical lines, therefore, the quality of the image is not hindered, BUT the game is still missing those 480 vertical lines, hence the 1920x800 resolution which is in fact NOT 1080p.

1080p with black bars would not make any sense, since you wouldn't be able to fit more than a 1920x1280 resolution in a native resolution screen...

mkis0071348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

You seem to unable to grasp that 1080p blurays are in fact 1080p and have black bars...your reasoning breaks down wholly at this point.pixel density is 1080p

Genova841348d ago


We understand what resolution is. It was the same thing with the Evil Within. Black bars does not equal 1080p. Luckily in my case, they patched it for pc so I can actually play it at 1080p.

They sell "wider" screen monitors that you could use to fill the screen with blu ray films and maybe this game? Not sure what the resolution would be though. Doesn't really make much difference though does it? If I'm losing a few inches off my 60" tv, is it really that big a deal? I think not.

They're just saying that if 280x1920 pixels are black then they're not being used and it is not "full hd" 1920x1080.

At any rate, the game looks amazing. I'll likely pick it up a little ways down the line.

mkis0071348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )


You are right the 1920X800 is not 1920X1080...but it is 1080p.1080p does not necessarily equal 1920X1080. If you can't get this even after the link then I just do not know how to make people get it. If The order was to be shown in 800p as many are claiming it is the overall blur would be worse. The image has the same number of pixels as 1080p and not the same number as 800p.

I will admit it is a hard idea to get, but so is calculus, and not getting it doesn't make it any less a fact.

number of lines=/= pixel density More information is being rendered than if it was 800p.

starchild1347d ago

No, it's not that hard of a concept to get, but people try to muddle the water with erroneous statements.

Games and movies are not the same thing. Games are rendered in real-time, whereas movies are shot on film (or digitally) and then encoded to a digital format.

Whether any person considers 1920 x 800 to be 1080p or not is irrelevant. What is certain is that, when talking about games, 1920 x 800 is easier to render than 1920 x 1080.

In terms of rendering load on the hardware, rendering a game at 1920 x 800 with black boarders isn't any different than rendering at that resolution and scaling it to fill the entire screen. For example, some games on the consoles have rendered at 1600 x 900 resolution (1,440,000 pixels), which is a 16 x 9 resolution, and then simply upscaled to fill the entire screen. The 1920 x 800 resolution The Order 1886 renders at is only marginally more pixels than that 1600 x 900 resolution (1,536,000 vs 1,440,000).

In either case the rendering burden on the hardware is reduced compared to the normal 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Mkai281347d ago (Edited 1347d ago )

The 1080 claim is actually normal and just an oddity with the way "1080" is defined. What people really should say is that the game is "1920", because most aspect ratios will max out the horizontal before the vertical. The "1080"resolution means that the film/game maxes out either 1920 on the horizontal or 1080 on the vertical, but most of the time both. 800 vertical is just with the black bars.

I don't prefer my movies to be 1920x800 because the black bars are annoying to me and cuts out some of the movie. 1886 could be the same, with the black bars. But I will tell you this, 1886 will have 4xmsaa, so it will have a pretty sharp image to begin with. At the end of the day, The Order 1886 is not 1920x1080, I'll just leave it at that.

It's not rendering 800p. Do your homework, please.

joeorc1347d ago (Edited 1347d ago )

They seem not to grasp the very simple concept. The black bars are in fact rendered! How many times does RAD have to go over that? They did this to limit your view, like looking through a port hole of an old steam ship! Juels verne example: its steampunk sci-fi horror, like somthing out of H.P. Lovecraft would write.

Or bloch, the idea as from the player perspective is to limit your view except for a limited point of view between you and the environment, hard to see around corners, but the idea is to drive the player trying so hard to gather more of the environment, but cannot because its just out of reach.

Murder by Gas light! Like putting the player into the Times as such with the street lights being powered by Gas/Electro coils but, with england nooks and side streets covered in mist and black satin shadows that are sent to envelop you as a player.

Play the game in a dark area of your room and cut off most of the surrounding Light!

The concept of RAD had for this game was quite clear on the choice's they made, some i think just do not get or not grasping the reasoning of such design choice.

MysticStrummer1348d ago

You get disagrees, and rightfully so, for saying it's sub 1080p.

mkis0071348d ago

People dont care about facts and increasing their knowledge.

PygmelionHunter1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

It is sub-1080p, it's not my fault the developers decided to cut in processing power to achieve such graphics. And no, I realize 1920x800 is not 800p. Spotie is just being a troll by stating I said such ridiculous thing.

I also just realized I said 1080p was 1920x1280 which is incorrect, but whatever, the game IS missing 280 vertical lines, I don't know why that's such a complicated concept to grasp :/

@mkis007 above
Oh dear lord, the irony. It's obvious the game isn't gonna look worse by missing vertical lines, yet, it's a stupid design choice obviously implemented to improve the game graphics under the gimmick of it being more "cinematic".


Resolution resolution resolution..... Damn guys give it a rest already, shouldn't you be happy that it looks that damn amazing coupled with a solid frame rate? I really think that these kinda people will never be satisfied until the character is so real looking that he reaches outta the screen and slaps them lol
