LMAO, if you don't understand why there are no graphics options on a console game, then you have no business calling other people stupid.
Piss off and grow up.
After a weekend with Bloodborne where I wrestled with framerate issues making it almost impossible to follow some bosses' attack sequences and co-op play being actively painful in some areas, I would definitely welcome a patch for that game which drops the image quality and at the very least guarantees a constant 30fps.
The point in the Vicar Amelia fight where I was deliberately keeping the boss out of particular parts of the room because of lighting effects which were slaughtering framerate was a real low point.
Crysis 3 doesn't even use physically based rendering, and texture quality is up for debate next to games like Killzone: Shadow Fall. I'll give you performance, but that depends on your rig.
How about all of it?
Except Driveclub and The Order running on the PS4's Casio gpu look better than anything on the PC right now :lol:
In lower frame rates when this effect may be apparent
"Been SLI gaming for several years now."
Why?? There is alot more issues running SLI then single GPU`s and on top of that micro stutter example is a common thing when running multiple GPU`s..
Your right.More interested in poking a no neck,no life like you.
cute that you call me a kiddo seeing as I am 44 years old and spent a vast amount of time sat in sandy places...
My i5 and gtx 970 in sli says they have no wish to play a 18 month old game,let alone crow about it.
Now back to Bloodborne.A game you will never see on on PC.
So glad your crowing about a 2 year old game.PC,first worl dvisuals.3rd world games.
...and no I'm not being pedantic - the difference between 1080p and 2160p is several hundred GBP - also known as: a lot.
You really don't like consoles huh.
Maybe the same reason why you're not answering my questions, because i don't know. Ridge racer on ps1 ran at 30 fps at launch, the demo which came with type 4 ran at 60 fps, the hardware didn't change so what happened there?
As for tlou, do you believe a pc with the equivalent hardware could run it as well without any optimization?
Are you seriously claiming console games don't improve over the lifespan of the console? How do you explain halo 4, or killzone 3, what about uncharted 2 and forza 4 even the cod games seen major improvements over their lifespan. Games like crysis 2 and battlefield 3 wouldn't of even run on the consoles at launch, and it had nothing to do with the hardware.
It's the software which improves which allows the hardware to used more efficiently.
TLoU on PS3 is a prime example of this. It was a shonky, wobbly, sub-HD, 30fps mess of an engine, even though the game itself was good. If what you're saying is true, why wasn't TLoU on PS3 the very best example of fidelity and performance on last gen?
so stop talking bollox consoles start of dodgy at first then SDK become better and better, this is still custom hardware, that can be coded to the metal.
TO GET A STABLE 60FPS ON PC A £300 CARD /MOTHERBOARD ETC ARE NEADED ONLY 1% OF PCS ON THE PLANET COULD MATCH TLOU 60FPS OR BVLOODVBOURNE AT ITS STABVLE ,WHEN PATCHED 30FPS.
"Almost a minute load times" I see 45 seconds max in 1 area. I wish I had this power of reality exaggeration, to add 25% to a number. Would have come in handy as a teen when I wanted to buy a beer at 17 years old. "I'm almost 21!"
Hahahahaha! Name one Sony Computer Entertainment IP on PC? From Software on under contract of SCE to make games for PlayStation. If SCE own an IP, it doesn't come to PC, there is no grey area or discussion, that's the way it is. Sony are trying to sell consoles & subscriptions, not support a platform they don't own. It's exactly the same as asking for Uncharted 4 or LBP 3. It's ridiculous.
I'm unsure why you've mentioned a Konami game to prove your point, a IP owned by a 3rd party studio.
Are we going to get Halo 5 not on PS4 statements? Uncharted 4 Xbox version? Is that how thick the gaming community is?
It's a Sony IP. SCE has never released a game on PC. They sell games, consoles & subscriptions. People need to grow the fuck up & realise this is not coming to PC. The stupidity around this game (& Bayonetta 2 before it) is just off the charts. It's absolutely ridiculous. IGN staff know this game can't come to PC & have got 1000's of cheap hits.
Please don't let this stupidity poison every Bloodborne thread. It's a Sony IP, Sony don't make PC games at all. Amazon France fuck up all the time.
IGN article as well, great way to get PC fools for cheap hits. How embarrassing.
It seems like waiting a month or 2 after release of any game will give you a better experience. It is just difficult to have the patience.
there's nothing wrong with waiting a bit, if you are happy to do so. I couldn't, but each to their own. But if they don't fix the loading times and the framerate, which is a distinct possibility, will you just stubbornly ignore this incredible game? At least stick it on the 'one for the sales' list! Lol.
Neither of the issues are a huge deal once you get into the game, and what a game it is.
Out of interest what's your opinion of the Souls series? Have you played Demon's Souls? I can't imagine you feel the same way as me otherwise there would be no option to not buy this at some point.
Watching the DF video, the framerate rarely drops, so its not like it drops massively a lot.
A game that has shit and gameplay can still have 1080p and 60fps, in fact I have played one, Crysis. Amazing looking game but nothing else.
The foundation of Bloodborne's lore is H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos.
I remember you slating this game on a conceptual level pretty hard around the time of its release. Just out of curiosity, what made you change your opinion?
I felt incredibly connected to the stories and characters in Planescape and BG2, so I don't think the camera angle excuses anything. Hopefully I'll disagree with the reviewer, because this was my most anticipated game of the year.
For an RPG in this style, such a criticism is possibly the most damning thing one can say. It brands this title with an "Avoid" as far as I'm concerned. :\
