Cease and Desist DMCA imminent. All these fan projects get killed because they can't wait to show it off before it's complete.

Finish the mod/game then show it off and release it. If you announce it early then it can get taken down.

On consoles, things are not much better below 900p on the Series X and PS5. And 480p on the Series S. Before upscaling to 1440p.

The excuse is that UE5 is just too demanding for current-gen hardware (being console or PC). Which is sort of funny, given it was supposedly built with them in mind.

Lightning7736d ago

Touting a current gen engine for 3 years only to end up being too demanding form the system and PC is a complete joke.

What are we even doing this generation?

Vits35d ago

Yeap and the issue is exacerbated by the current consolidation of the engine market, where most studios prefer to license Unreal instead of developing their own in-house tools.

that's what happens when you have too many chefs in the kitchen

It'll be nxt gen when UE5 takes full effect imo, maybe that's why playstation is doing the PRO?

Vits35d ago

Well, clearly it will not be in this gen. If games continue to be released like this. But that is kind of the problem if the engine that was built and teased for this generation is just too demanding for it. Just like @Lightning77 put it. What is really the point of this gen?

Yes, a PRO will definitely help alleviate the issue. But the reality is we are already 60M consoles into this generation. And there aren't really that many current-gen games in the market. And if we are going to need a Pro version to really see the gains of the few that are being released, it kind of feels like a bait and switch. And PC is not really that much better, as the article points out performance is also pretty shit even with considerable more powerful hardware.

Five Annoying Video Game Openings in Otherwise Classic Titles

I liked the Red Dead 2 opening, certainly didn’t feel like a slog to me, but I enjoyed that whole game so for those who were just expecting ‘GTA but with cowboys’, that was probably not the opening they expected, and Red Dead 2 wasn’t the game they were hoping for …

First game that came to mind when I read the title, was Watch Dogs 2, because you’re expecting an open world sandbox game in sunny colorful San Francisco, and instead that opening has you crawling and sneaking around an incredibly boring office building …

PrimeVinister51d ago

Watch Dogs 2 is a decent game but not really a classic. The opening is awful though. You got that right.

I loved the RDR 2 opening hours the first time but going back to restart it is where the rub lies for me.

Yi-Long51d ago

Yeah, I agree it’s not a classic, but it was the first game I thought of where I really thought; Why would you make that design choice!? If you’re gonna do a thing like that in order to teach the player some basic sneaking controls, at least make the location a bit more interesting, like an abandoned theme park or gorgeous temple or whatever, but now the gameplay was restrictive and boring, but also the location itself.

PrimeVinister51d ago

@Yi-Long Definitely true re the worst possible choices being made for the opener of Watch Dogs 2. I did enjoy WD2 overall but that intro is baffling :-D

Red Dead 2 opening was trash
