From what I've seen of the maps on youtube, I'm only impressed by a few. Rogue tranny, that dam map ala BF2, and the STALKER inspired one seem to be the best of the bunch. Shanghai was also fun in the beta, but looked awfully bland once the city was covered in dust after the skyscraper came down.

Headshots are rewarded, which is good, but body shots seem to be penalized heavy in BF4, compared to BF3. This is really evident with the vehicle mounted MGs, which seem to take an inordinate amount of shots if you don't hit the head, to kill infantry.
In the beta I got infuriated with how many shots infantry could take from vehicle MG's. Absolutely ludicrous how much you'd have to hit them. Sometimes even 15 shots from one.
Sounds like the issue persists.

I don't usually have any praise for Activision, but it's cool that they didn't gimp the PS4 version of Ghosts so as not to upset Microsoft. I would imagine MS isn't happy about this blow coming right before release.
Maybe Activision deserves no praise, and 720p is the best they could get out of the Xbone hardware :/

For the record, I'm playing it and it's awesome. The way the graphics work is mesmerizing - it's all fully 3D, but it feels 2D - I've never seen anything quite like this before.
After looking at some footage as well as screenies from it's Steam page, the game looks beautiful.

Wish there was a demo, because I'm really, really not into Japanese style gameplay in general.

Agreed, pretty exciting stuff coming our way, I'm sure.

I wish they'd stop showing this uninspired looking tech demo in ever showcase video, though.

Yeah, I don't play much multi. And I kind of enjoy the CoD/BF SP campaigns in the same way I like watching a Jason Statham movie. It's a nice diversion inbetw better games. But that means I wait until they go on sale for $15 or whatever.
Ah, you're crazy dude. Missing out on a hell of an MP experience, IMO.

Killzone looks pretty cool, but it looks like the same old gameplay.

GT6's graphics are really, really mundane.
I never felt the GT games were a great depiction of real driving, either.
Richard Burns Rally is the most realistic driving game I've played as far as I'm concerned

I highly suggest people try it out, and yes there are a few maps that really shine, but I think the true potential of the game could be unleashed with better map design.

Still, it's worth whatever price it's going for on Steam. I picked it up for $12 I think.

Also, great news about the SDK!

The new NFS game isn't even that great, visually.

To be honest, the graphics for most next gen games really aren't that impressive.
iNFAMOUS Second Son and Killzone (SP) are the only ones that come to mind

Would this equate to lower framerates not looking so shitty as well, considering the refresh rate is matched?

Sorry, I'm no techie

Then you missed the best part of AC3 (the ship sections)
Ahhh, I know. I loved the first 20 minutes or so because I was out at sea. I'll have to mug it out until the ship sections

Seriously.

I love the look and the atmosphere of this game, but I just can't get into their combat system. I played about 2 hours of AC3 and got bored pretty quick. Too automatic for my tastes.

If you are using Nvidia graphics card downgrade to 320 driver.
It solved all my lag and performance issues, game runs fine on Ultra settings.
I've been having choppy performance issues as well. I'll try the roll back

I guess it isn't that expensive, but 16GB of RAM seems a bit over the top to me. I cannot imagine needing that much.
I have 16 gb and yes, it's overkill. 8 will suffice for pretty much everything.
The difference is negligible

I think there's more here than initially perceived. I can't imagine Valve making such a big deal out of something that many gamers are currently calling redundant.

At least I hope that Steambox/OS are more useful to PC gaming enthusiasts than their portrayal right now.
