News Comments > New NVIDIA Beta Drivers Add FXAA

Furthermore, FXAA is able to anti-alias increasingly-popular transparent textures

Considering 3dfx was doing it a decade ago, I'm not terribly impressed, particularly since they own the goddamn patents for it

ya notice why noone has a MMO on the 360 besides Phantasy Star?

Every time you went to update the game it'd have to go through Microsoft Certification.
Yeah and doesn't that cost money? I seem to recall some dev saying every patch costs like $80,000 fee paid to MS for the certification or more.

Regardless of the cost there's a reason that Valve switched sides from being pro-360 and anti-PS3 to the other way around. Certification is part of that, but so is control of your product. Considering Dust is going to be F2P, they probably didn't want to use a service that already involves a charge and I imagine they get a better deal as far as revenue sharing from items bought through their online store as well, assuming that both MS and Sony would take a cut of those dollars.

You were saying, Jerykk?

Yes? You are aware that you can play the PC version with a gamepad and still get superior visuals and performance, right? I'm not really sure why you can't grasp this concept.

Quoting necrosis:
They were always to lazy to add proper 16:10 aspect support. Now mouse and keyboard is to much?

How is that better? Why do I want to play on a screen with a distorted image due to improper aspect ratio scaling?

That comment makes you look just as stupid as the other side of the coin. I have lots of platforms because I am a gamer, but have always been a PC gamer. There are games I enjoy playing on console, and unfortunatley, for the reasons you have stated, I mostly play GTA games on console than PC. But I have them all and have played through GTA4 2x each on xbox and PC.

So... are you going to say anything to actually disprove my claim? Even Rockstar's shoddy ports are still better than the console versions. The reason you choose to play these games on consoles rather than on PC has nothing to do with quality and everything to do with you wanting to sit on a couch and being too lazy to hook up your PC to your TV. That just supports my point.

The only reason to play GTA on the PC is mods, but then it's like playing a game from DICE: it's a great idea with so many fucking implementation problems that it tends to be a headache to really love

My point is that you call yourself a PC gamer but seem utterly and completely uninterested in it as a gaming platform.

You're inferring quite a lot.

I put in a good 30-60 hours of PC gaming a week. Unless there is something I feel like playing, less than 5 hours a week on the PS3. Ultimately, console ports to PC are 99% universally bad. I'd rather play it in its natural environment. And GTA4 is better on a console. You have a problem with that, but who cares, you're a closed minded fool that likes to assume things and then degrade people for it. You're no better than any other moron fanboy. I'd rather every game was designed primarily for PC in the first place, but that isn't reality.

[But a true PC gamer - which is what you claimed to be - would simply hook up their system to an HDTV and use a wireless X360 controller to play games at 1080p, maxed out. I have a 42" 1080p LED TV hooked up for when I want to chill out and a 30" 1600p monitor for serious gaming. Your argument is utter bullshit. If you don't give a shit about graphical fidelity or you can't afford it then that's fine, but don't claim to be a "PC gamer through and through" and then tell us that sub-720p with low resolution textures and no AA/AF is acceptable simply because your seat is slightly more comfortable.


Like I said, there are some things PC is the best at, by far, and there are some that their aren't. Plus, 360? The controller sucks and the system is redundant.

And graphical fidelity doesn't make a game. I still haven't found a better deathmatch experience than QWRA. Graphics blow, but the game is awesome. Physics, speed, and weapon combinations are unmatched. Same goes for consoles. Castlevania SOTN was a 2d game in an era when all the games were going 3d, yet it's considered one of the best PSX games ever(and it's still a great game today).

Meh, not really concerned. PC gamer through and through, but GTA is the type of game that's better on a console.
So you'd rather play games at 600-720p than 1200-1600p? You'd rather not have anti-aliasing, high resolution textures or modding capabilities? You'd rather have longer load times, be forced to use a controller and have to put the disk in each time? So much for you being a PC gamer through and through".

For me I'd want to see DX11 features, optimised performance for 1600p, proper SLI/Crossfire support, a PC centric interface and a recognition that PC gamers are just as important as console gamers (if there wasn't a profit to be made then they wouldn't bother). If it's anything like the shit-in-a-can PC port of GTAIV then they can piss right off, as that was absolutely unacceptable.

GTA isn't the kind of game I want to play on a computer screen with a mouse and keyboard. I'm happier playing games like GTA, God of War, MLB The Show, etc on a console sitting on my couch with a controller. PC does shooter and RTS the best, and there is no argument. Other genres? Plenty of arguments as to the ups and downs.

Remember, CCP can only afford to have about four people working on this these days...
Maybe it can get the Dust 514 crew once that bombs.
That aside, this just seems a bit underwhelming. It is a continuation of what we have seen before and does nothing to reall detail the scop of the world, the gameplay, player interaction, etc.

Fearing this property will rot while CCP tries to patch up Eve,
Ray

Because they have another game in dev in front of it. Resources will be moved once Dust goes live

Although that would be nice, I seriously doubt that's the case here. Updating the game for next-gen consoles would require a significant amount of time and resources, as the engine and assets would all need to be upgraded and/or redone. Also, I wouldn't expect new consoles until at least 2014.

Well, it's not like Prey wasn't rewritten umpteen times and delivered years late... oh wait, it was

I just hope it's not a WoW clone. I want a wide-open world where my actions actually matter to other players that I don't meet. Yes, I know I'm wishing beyond hope, but I will continue to hope.

My EVE corp is always recruiting.

Boondock Saints is one "cult" film (though I think it's beyond cult at this point) I've never liked. The gun play seemed weak, and there were too many damn whiteboy characters in it.

It's a mob movie in Boston.. what did you expect?

Troy Duffy's *still* trying to milk that for all it's worth, I see... He was on Adam Carolla's podcast awhile back, trying to clear his name for coming across as an egomaniacal douche in the "Overnight" documentary, and well... didn't really work as intended. Non-stop references to the success of The Boondock Saints, though.

I don't particularly care that Duffy is an egomaniac, though. Realistically, it's just that he's so awful at hiding the fact that he's an egomaniac when you consider most Hollywood personalities, and it's probably because Duffy was an outsider to begin with.
