That's a huge problem for most games now days, they spend so much time on architecture and graphics. Then when the game releases quests and the AI are beta at best.

It's bullshit and players get screwed.


Oh the dev's got screwed right where it hurts and made news about it.

Get the player base first, before spending millions. (sounds impossible and for MMORPG's these days it's pretty impossible) Sometimes you can't save your best for one big show, just get something out to gain interest investments from players. MMO's could try starting smaller, make sure the gameplay and the mechanics will draw players in further, then worry about paying up the arse to fund artists.

I'd be on edge trying to launch an MMORPG in the days where you need some serious artist force to maintain the graphical standards.

Are there any modest graphically powered MMORPG's aside from Wow?

Wasn't the first thing we saw from GTA4 an awesome trailer? This... not so awesome.

There already was a GTA5 trailer. It looked pretty sweet.

Creston

it does, and Max Payne 3 uses the same engine and so far it's really good.

Oh man, I don't care what anyone says, Source 2 ( as long as it's not just an optimized source engine for consoles) could be incredible! I still remember watching those E3 levels and telling myself, this engine is a game changer, no more shooting a can of soda on a desk and it just stays glued to the desk with a shitty bullet decal pasted on.

Easily the loudest most outspoken individuals in my mind are the ones that contribute to crafting and eroding smoother society or pipelines for various fields, they just happen to openly think out loud a bad idea from time to time and become easy fodder (crackwhore model, well bad idea is debatable).

I'm a 50-60 FPS fiend, I was hoping to get good FPS in those.

Diablo III in OSX won't get you near that at 2880x1800 but at 2048x1280 it's butter, I just keep everything high, except shadows on medium (blurry) and turn off AA (edges still look great)

In Win7, I can get high 30's and 40's with Diablo III at 2880x1800 same settings as OSX. Super smooth at 2048x1280 in Windows.



Crysis 2 runs high 40' at 2048x1280, not 60 or 50 at 2880x1800, most settings maxed except AA and post fx


Battlefield 3 is somewhat modern and that's great at 2048x1280 as well. High Settings on all expect Post AA and actual AA settings.

Skyrim with high res textures averages at 39-46 fps at 2048x1280, at 2880x1800 it's playable, just not as smooth as what I look for. High settings, nothing handicapped down graphics wise.


any of these titles is pure buttery FPS joy with res near 1680x1050 or 1440x900 etc.

Some will say not being able to game at 2880x1800 in all games is worthless and thats fine, but I LOVE working in Maya, Softimage, or Max and other 3D packages in windows at 2880x1800.

I love it for photography and looking at the web isn't this horrendous experience.

Windows Chrome is smooth as shit, 2880x1800, AERO etc.

in Lion (Retina comes with it) , web browsing is sluggish with Retina, then I upgraded to Mountain Lion and Safari is smoother than shit now.

Mountain Lion just gave my desktop a smooth feel.

Waiting for a chrome update to address the browsing not being smooth.



Other than that the web looks fine even when sites aren't optimized, the graphics that may look pixelated just look how they would on a 1440x900 monitor.

I'm very satisfied so far

Just simmed 678 gigs of simulation data for some VFX work I've been busy with, this laptops not bad, just overpriced a tad, but I love solid aluminum cases. My PC Rigs I use to simulated effects work with are all coolermaster Stackers, or PC's built into Mac Pro cases... and my Stacker cases were pretty overpriced too.

mmmm... delicious aluminum cases.

Everyone compares this to win 8 on the fact that it brings in some of the phone UI but I disagree, Metro forces you to use it, you don't have to use Launchpad to launch apps or work in Mountain Lion. I'd say it's just an improved version of lion.

UI response and overall smoothness is MUCH MUCH better in Mountain Lion, even on my old Macbook pro. It's been really nice on my Retina Macbook Pro.


Win Vista = Lion
Win 7 = Mountain Lion.

Ya they are off by years, but I'd say Leopard was horrible and was made really smooth with Snow Leopard.

Lion was sorta a pain and is much better with Mountain Lion.

My Review.

sidenote: Playing Diablo III or HL2 Ep 2 at 2880x1800 just rocks..

in Windows I can play BF3 at 2000+ resolutions too, settings on high except shadows which is at medium.

Love my Retina Mac Can't wait for PC Laptops to adopt a 2880 res.

Windows doesn't look like shit either, works fine with DPI settings.

"And the dude bitching about the oomph of weapons obviously never got the sonic boom"

I'm sure even that games largest weapons still feel silly and with its jokey ragdoll system to go with it.

Fact is

GTA guns and explosions feel = FEAR 1

Saints Row's Guns and explosions = Fear 3


One is much better with guns and oomph in every way... Now story, random shit, and comedy are a much different thing.

Most of the cars I was shooting didn't even get bullet holes on them... very weak feeling weapons.

You can play with airsoft guns all you want, more power to you.. but some games capture guns with a sense of beauty and do them justice.

It's like watching CBS's NCIS cheap TV firefights after watching the movie HEAT. It just leaves something to be desired.

sincerely,
-the dude bitching about the oomph-

Lolwut, some people may have liked SR3 better than GTA IV, but I've never heard of anyone saying it's realistic. You set yourself up for disappointment by somehow getting that idea. The whole point is the over-the-top, out-of-left-field action sequences.

I was looking forward to this expansion, but I guess if they want to take more time to make it into a sequel, that's cool. If it ends up releasing late 2013 that won't be too bad, and chances are it will be available for 30-40% off (before release, thank you GMG) like the last one was anyway.

that and I never said I thought it was realistic, I was expecting fun. Believe me I knew about the falling from the plane level etc, and never expected realism.

But.

just like how most FPS's these days feel LESS fun then Turok 2 on the sheer account that Turoks weapons felt awesome when you blew a hole through an enemies chest with a double barreled shotgun.

Saints Row could be wholly unrealistic and ridiculous but if the guns feel like a bad third person game then i have no desire to play much when the entire game involves guns.

I go shooting all the time and with a couple fancy home built rifles and nothing sucks more then when I want to escape reality and shoot a gun in game and it feels wonky.

Took the risk because everyone was saying GTA 4 was so much worse compared to SR3. Now i completely disagree with that crowd. This game felt far too hokey, the guns felt awful, the distorted bullet trail on guns and the sheer inability for this game to convey weight correctly made it even worse. i always hear the "cutscene, drive, then shoot.. Then cutscene complaint". Which can almost apply to a lot of great games so I ignore those comments. Also SR3 started to lose me at fighting the entire army and I'm gettin shot at from 60 people and the firefight feels like I'm playing that horrible rockstar game State of Emergency.

Yea gta was not optimized but when you take a 12 gauge to a drivers windshield it feels fucking cinematic. I'm sure saints row is fun but to me I like to be grounded in some millionth of a hit of realism. I still stand by gta and red dead redemption. If gta runs like max Payne 3 then the next game will rock.

Just saying I prefer a bit more realism and more of a simulation feel where saints row had a old school wacky video game feel. I'm sure of that's what you want, then SR3 is great.

Graphics are awesome and the engine is crisp though

Unless you fancy RSI within 2 years touch screens will never be more than a gimmick in actual work environments so no fear of anyone upgrading to W8 Whoever thought its smart to have to physically move your entire arm/shoulder to touch something on a screen needs to be smacked, very VERY hard.
Yeah the only people who think touch screen interfaces are conducive to productivity are apple fanboy tech "journalists" who don't actually do any real work dependent on computers.

as a happy owner of a macbook pro I agree whole heartedly that touch screen needs to die on the power user end.

I'd assume the settings are set above standard in order to help exaggerate the whats the physics are really doing to the model, where if it was as subtle as a pickup truck built in the 90's it might not sell what he's trying to advertise / exhibit here. Seeing the car have a bit of low gravity shows the system working better.

Imagine it's a game set in a scifi world etc, and a modder / dev wants to have an alien gun that melts a car down into some jello esque state / changes the car skin to a burnt texture this demo would sell me on how far it can be pushed. The game doesn't exist but this demo proves it can go that far.

Also in terms of connection failures on the softbody, I saw the mirror break off, and the front bumper become disconnected.

Really nice tech demo.

He enjoys the game so he paid for it, but he wishes the maintenance and always online wasn't the case - not very complicated I think.
Actually how did he enjoy the game before he played it? Maybe he started enjoying the game because he did pay 60 bucks and cognitive dissonance hits and resolves by telling himself he enjoys the game. Or you can say that he thought he would likely enjoy the game so he paid for it. There is more than 1 possibility.

I have played it on an off since day 1 and I only got to act 4, haven't had a chance to beat it because of work. (14 hour to 16 hour days ) I really enjoy it so far, but I'm getting worried hearing about how ridiculous Inferno is. Along with not being able to play when I get home because of another random Update.
