Unreal 4 is so far superior and better, more realistic looking than this artificial looking garbage it's not even a contest.

Oh Jesus Christ, CJ my man, it's been too long. I don't even know how to attack this, it feels like a trap, no matter what angle i take, it morphs into something even more ridiculous...

So I'm playing in a movie set, and that's bad, because I'm playing a Star Wars game, which is based on movies, but the actual locations look better, so the actual Tatooine looks better? Or the game's representation of the movie is bad because it's based on a movie and not the real location which is real, but video games aren't real, but they should be, but not movies...

Man, this hole goes deep. You're out of your fucking mind.

Dude, as I said... the Frostshite games look fucking artificial. The movie location Tatooine is actual locations in Tunisia and looks 100% more real in the movies than the retarded shiny high gloss plastic sand and rocks in SWBF. YES. Absolutely.

Frostshite is an abomination of an engine. It has unrealistic lighting, unrealistic vibrant colors and always looks like you are watching the action through a camera lens instead of actually being there, being the soldier and doing the actual fighting.
It is giving you a detached feeling like you are a distant war observer and not a soldier or a hero or a fucking elf (DAI) or whatever.

It kind of has the same look and feel like those TVs with high Hz technology, e.g. Sony's Motionflow. When you activate that stuff, you are all of a sudden cast in the role of someone on the set of the shooting. I don't know if there is a proper technical term for this strange effect but Frostshite causes the gaming equivalent to that effect and it fucking sucks.

Star Wars Battlefront 2: Official Gameplay Trailer

You've got to admit that the engine looks simply amazing.

To me it does not. Frostshite is a horrible piece of shit engine that makes games look artificial as if you were playing on a movie set instead of the actual location. You're not really there. It is not visceral but turns you into a distant observer like a Kamikaze Kappa war reporter who is filming and following the action through his HD camera lens for high gloss warfare coverage.

The graphical fidelity per se is very high, of course, but that is no surprise due to the photogrammetry tech they are using. However, all of this is worth chicken shit when the end result does not manage to actually put you in the action. It is worth even less when the gameplay is fucking garbage like the first game.
I'm sure I'll buy SWBF 2 eventually for the SP campaign but it'll be $10 max, maybe $15 if reviews of the campaign are unanimously positive but I'm not holding my breath.

Prequel garbage needs to DIAF but they can shove this game anyway after the lame first one. $10 sale material. Maybe.

I"m waiting on a price drop to score the MSI 1070 Gaming Z edition. It's one of the beast 1070s you can buy that isn't found in Europe.

Not sure if I misundahst00dz summin' here but I'm in EU and I could order the MSI 1070 Gaming Z no problem right now for about €440 (none in stock atm). A dealer who actually has stock sells them for €463. Amazon Germany is expecting new shipments to arrive June 18th (€470).

Good to see that BioWare is putting so much effort into solving the REAL issues of this game...

Expanded Male Romance Options for Scott Ryder

Scott Ryder can now pursue Jaal as a romance option. There are several important reasons for this change:

Scott Ryder did not have a same-sex squadmate available as a romance option, nor could the achievement for completing three romances be achieved with only male same-sex partners. And as the angara have expressed their fluidity in how they perceive gender, it seemed only natural that Scott could have a relationship with Jaal.

However, we understand that a character’s orientation is an important part of what makes them feel real. The relationships with your crew are some of the most loved and cherished parts of our games, so we wanted to make sure we got it right. We consulted with members of the LGBTQ community, both externally and within our own studios. After carefully considering all feedback, we decided this was an important change to make, and one that made sense for Jaal, Scott, and the angara.

Our writing, editing, and animation teams worked together to ensure this change made sense for Jaal’s character, and the result is a relationship we hope feels as fulfilling and memorable for Scott as it does for Sara.

It's a hero shooter...I mean, it's exactly what it says on the tin right there.

Nope. If the "tin" really said what's inside then it would read "casual garbage cash grab".

It's aimed at the usual mouthbreathing Bungie audience. They won't even realize that there is no gameplay in there.

Wow, what an unexpected decision... like Valve really ever gave a fuck. Of course they went for the lowest possible fee in order to keep collecting the $$$, no matter how shitty or fake a game might be.

It was part of the livestream. Looks like that Burrito dude is planning to buy a datacenter instead of a PC cuz that's what EPYC is for.

Oh well. Whatever floats yer boat, bro. Hope you got enough space at home and make sure to buy some ear protection plus an extra sweater cuz it might get kinda noisy and cool at home with a full datacenter setup.






* Me thinks the Burrito dude, instead of salivating, should have watched the livestream more attentively to realize what EPYC actually is. What he is probably talking about and is really interested in is the Threadripper CPU for the PC desktop and not the EPYC datacenter stuff.

News Comments > DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Announced
1. Re: DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Announced May 30, 2017, 21:56 CJ_Parker
 
Well, 'tis about time. The first time I heard about a F-18 being added to DCS "soon" must have been five years ago or something like that .

Still the biggest problem of this sim IMO... the gawddang snail's pace. They (or the respective 3rd parties) really need to crank out the most prevalent fan favorite modern jets and classic planes more quickly while also working on a realistic dynamic campaign theater with awesome AI that will keep players busy for a long time ( = make a modern version of F-22 TAW).
Maybe they should finally focus on one era, too, and decide whether they first want to "finish" the WW2 setting or the modern era. More focus = faster results (hopefully).
