News Comments > Unofficial Skyrim Performance Boost
61. Re: Unofficial Skyrim Performance Boost Dec 26, 2011, 21:29 Tanto Edge
 
It's not a port. Tandem development is not a port, lead platform or not.

My source is the core files. Check them yourself, you'll see the graphics are in there.

I'm pretty sure you don't work at Bethesda, hence, you don't know what their pipeline looks like. 'Oh dear'? Cram it.

I agree they could have included a UI for each platform, but let's be honest here:
They don't do that. They do the bare minimum because they're not interested in making UI.
They're interested in making games, not interfaces. This has always been obvious, since their first games up until now.

BioWare is out to please everyone. Bethesda is not.

The whole 'issue' here is pure semantics, but as far as I'm concerned, a port is after the release, not during development. That's just development.

Besides, a strong community fixes everything. Look at Vampire: Bloodlines. They fixed so much they made new things to fix, and Troika's been dead for years (*sob*).
They've fixed so much that there's now multiple branches of fixes.

Eh, the whole thing started to show his transition from a raw uncut diamond to the shiney Bond we all know and love.

Besides, in the regular / classic / older Bond movies I thought he really fell for one of them. It's been a while so maybe I'm wrong, perhaps Octopussy?

That's some retarded logic there.
They design a UI that will work on all systems and that defines a port.

It makes perfect sense for a company developing a game on multiple platforms, to share resources to lighten the development load.
It doesn't mean the game is a 'port'.

You look through Morrowind and Oblivion's files and you'll find graphics for the XBox and 360 buttons. Doesn't mean those games were ports.

A port of a game is where the games resources are converted to be used on another system after it's been released to a particular system.
Nobody ports a game in mid development. That's called developing for multiple platforms and a smart developer will save time by sharing resources between different teams and systems.

It runs and looks better on PC than it does on any other system. What fucking port have you ever known to do that? If that's a port, I want Bethesda to 'port' every game.

I hate to admit it, but even Rage wasn't a port. It was just so sloppy it may as well have been a port.

We can argue about this until next Christmas, but I say that if it's in the development cycle, it's not a port. It's just being developed in tandem, regardless of whatever 'build' the resources 'came from'.

Why on earth would I be ashamed of buying a game from a studio that doesn't port, but rather enhances ANDadds modding tools to some of the deepest games made today?

Erm, Bethesda definitely does port their games to PC. The console-centric UI is pretty much indisputable evidence of that, along with the fact that all the official media is taken from the Xbox build (as has been the case since Oblivion). While I applaud Bethesda for making their games highly moddable and supporting modders with official tools, I can't applaud them for the quality of the ports themselves. Skyrim is a good game but a mediocre port.

Naysayers be damned. Anybody complaining about "modders not knowing what they're doing" is a damned retard.

Doctors 'practice' medicine.
In this case, some 'doctors' are 'practicing their medicine' on Bethesda's beautiful creation, and have had positive effect.

If you're worried about your precious save file (and those many hours you've spent organizing your fucking potion shelves) then copy/paste them into an encrypted rar, burn it to a bluray and cram it up your ass.
Entitled little know it all shits.

Bethesda has demonstrated that PC gaming is worth supporting, and the community has demonstrated that they will support a good game.
As a result, the community has figured shit out, and either we can expect an official patch or enjoy the fruits of the community as it stands.

Either way, bravo.

Are you guys for real? You speak as though you don't realize that Casino Royale was supposed to be the quintessential Bond.
It was a meat fist power smash of Bond to the chops and the sole purpose was not to further the story of Bond (although that is in itself a relative concept, Bond is supposed to be a role, not a person, much like 'The' Merlin in Mists of Avalon) but to establish Craig.
Which I felt it did.
Quantum of Solace was the same meat hammer treatment but still delivered Bond (action, story, drama, etc).
It IS Hollywood after all.

I think the problem lies in how concepts and ideals differ from the late 60's and 70's (when Bond was ultra slick).
Bond should seek to recreate that theme. Like a serious version of Austin Powers

A game like HL2Ep3 can't be released as a 'bunch of DLC packs'.
Valve has always taken a 'DLC is Free for PC' attitude anyhow (and god bless them for it) whereas their Episodes have been typically priced at half the retail of a full game.
Anytime Valve releases anything it sells well. Gabe could release a fart and I'm sure someone'd make a bid on it.
If Valve released Episode 3 today I think the magnitude of excitement would drive sales crazy.
I mean, a Valve game at $15 a pop? I punch those numbers into my calculator it makes a happy face.

News Comments > Unrated Postal III by Christmas

@Parallax Abstraction:
What is a good game?
A game I can enjoy because it's fun?
Or a game that someone else tells me is great with their million dollar marketing?

What is a different game? A game that promises new gameplay, with hard rocking visuals, incredible sound and fantastic characters?
Or just a game where my only objective is to 'Get Milk'.

Along the way I can fuck around however I choose and nobody will ever, ever care. By which I mean at no point will a cutscene play explaining why I cannot do something. Never will the game say, "You're not supposed to be here, you're ruining my performance."

Postal 2 is still the only game where you start in a trailer park and the immediate choices include collecting the nearby 'health' pipe, grabbing the shovel leaning against a wall, entering someone's home, and when they yell "Get out of my house" you proceed to smash them in the face with said shovel.
After they fall to the ground in a fetal position (and possibly start crying or pissing themselves), you can kick them, piss on them, pour gasoline on them, and then light'em up as you head off for your next victim.. err 'story' objective.

It may be a shooter (a 'bad' one) but I don't think there are any other games like that ... call me crazy.
Insofar as quality entertainment goes, I'd say that rates pretty high.
Beats the shit out of Twilight.
