    @vert1go Um did you read the summaries at all?

    Games Radar: 3.5/5
    http://www.gamesradar.com/splatoon-review/
    It breaks my squid-loving heart to be so down on Splatoon, because the core gameplay offered is one of the freshest and most exciting things to come out of Nintendo in years. But I can't help but feel like this game should have come out three, maybe six months later, when all of the content is finished and included on the disc. As it stands, there's simply not enough game here on day one to make Splatoon anything more than a weekend curiosity, and there's no telling whether the content coming down the pipeline will be worth sticking around for.
    That sounds far harsher than this preview.

    Anyway reviews are subjective. If you think the game is something you'll enjoy, go for it. Why whine about Dan not sharing your enthusiasm?

    @lacerz Are you suggesting that frame-pacing and a cap at 30 fps can't be done with a patch on the X1? LOL! Much easier to achieve than bumping up the framerate by 20% ;).

    As for DR3, well yes it had significant frame-rate issues. Won't get me saying otherwise. But it's a far better game than any PS4 exclusive available. One of the best zombie games I have ever played. In coop it's phenomenal.

    @OnlyJoeKing Dunno dude, the stutter and slowdown in Bloodborne is very noticeable to me. The stutter due to fluctuating frame-rates over 30 in KZ: Shadowfall and Infamous 3 did not bother me. Finished both games before a 30 fps cap was placed. Reply -6

  • frazzl 22/05/2015

    Has there been a downgrade?

    Yes.

    The thing is, what CDPR have done is nothing new. The whole E3 reveal bullshot/vertical slice/target render etc. is an industry standard practice. So what CDPR are being called out for now can be applied to virtually every dev team/publisher out there.

    CDPR however, have a history of making great titles (which Witcher 3 definitely is), supporting their titles post launch (already evidenced here with the patches being released) and generally fan friendly business practices. Compare their track record with that of Ubisoft, EA, Konami, Warner Bros., Activitision, Bethesda etc. What some people are calling a "free pass" is simply an acknowledgment of this.

    @grassyknoll The only lunatic and fool here is you. I talk about the pre-patched versions of the game, and you are attacking me with results from a GAF poster comparing the post-patched versions of the game. Whether or not the Gaffer is accurate is irrelevant. His post, and therefore your statements to me, have no bearing on what I said originally. Even someone as thick as you must understand that right? Right? Come grassy don't disappoint Cher ;). Reply -1

    @Suarez07
    As a PC gamer, i play on format that seems to suffer more frame pacing issues than the consoles, but I have to say frame pacing is not associated with big frame rate drops. Micro stutter by the budget load maybe, but not frame rate drops
    Exactly! This has been my experience with games that have frame pacing issues on any platform. I have never experienced frame-pacing issues that are so severe that reviewers have reported drops in perceived frame-rate of almost 50%.

    Edit: Grassy would do well to play Bloodborne some more. You can clearly distinguish between the stutter induced by frame-pacing issues, and drops in frame-rate caused by performance issues. Unfortunately these are things he will never admit to.

  • frazzl 20/05/2015

    @grassyknoll Some random commentor on SonyGaf? LOL! I remember when a GAF "industry insider" who everyone there claimed credible started rumours that MS would drop the clock speed of the X1. We all know how that "sure to be true rumour" panned out.

    Secondly perhaps you should read the actual statement itself:

    Of course, we don't know if the current patch available for both consoles (v 1.01) is the day one patch or if there will be another before tuesday
    So this was not a comparison of the pre-patched version which was what I was talking about.

    As for which version is better, the PS4 version is much smoother in terms of framerate than XB1, so the choice is clear.
    This is purely subjective. Nothing quantitative about it.

    I'm usually pretty good at detecting framerate by myself, and I could have sworned the X1 version had a much worse framerate than PS4. I guess getting slightly higher than 30 fps means the frame pacing is completely screwed and it makes the game look worse.
    Again purely subjective.

    So the statement you are taking as gospel is 1) not related to my original post about the unpatched versions of the game and 2) primarily subjective.

    Well done grassy, you have outdone yourself.

    @grassyknoll I am well aware of what frame-pacing issues entail. It's nothing new; there are games with this issue the last two generations (particularly this gen). None of the games with such issues have had their PERCEIVED frame-rate halved due to frame-pacing. So either the Witcher 3 on the PS4 has the worse frame-pacing issues ever, OR there are genuine frame-rate issues compounded by frame-pacing. Since you are a fanboy muppet you're going for the former. I am going for the latter. Reply -4

    @Antropie
    Because an exclusive is an exclusive and it can't have a direct comparison... use your brain...
    What part of "I am not comparing PS4 and X1 exclusives" do you not understand?

    While multi-platform games show us how weak is the Xbox One compared to the PS4. That's why MS makes damage control.
    You mean like Sony's Watch Dogs damage control? :cool:

    I don't have any evidence... that's why i don't compare them...
    So you have not compared the X1 and PS4 versions of Witcher 3? LOLOLOL!!!

    And WD was just a mistake or a lie from Sony. And WD was 900p 100% of the time... not 900p 99% of the time and 1% in 1080p
    Sony claimed WD was 1080p at 60 fps. It reached that claim 0% of the time. No matter how you swing it, CDPR's dynamic resolution claims for Witcher 3 are far more truthful than Sony's PR spiel :lol:

    @Unholy_Witchcraft
    For a 30fps game is very responsive and sharp so far that you couldnt tell it wasn't at 60.
    I own DC. You can clearly tell the difference between 30 fps and 60 fps.

    I noticed you mentioned Watch Dogs fiasco as you called it. Ubisoft fucked up as much on PC, so its pretty much Ubisoft fiasco.
    That was in response to the whole "MS are focused on 1080p" nonsense muppets like Antropie and grassy are spewing.

    Its just games and numbers bro, no need to get all fired up
    Not fired up. Just enjoy putting people like the aforementioned mentally challenged duo, in their place :D

  • frazzl 20/05/2015

    @grassyknoll It's you who did not read the full quote. Let me show it to you again:

    Most damaging by far though is the framerate, which hardly ever feels like itís keeping its head above 30fps during combat, and occasionally slows to below 20 in sparsely populated scenes for no discernible reason.
    So there is obviously a difference between combat and non-combat scenarios here.

    You don't know what frame pacing is
    I do know what frame-pacing issues are. Do you? Do you honestly think that they can be sufficiently bad to result in a perceived frame-rate that's 50% of its actual value? And what evidence do you have that in the pre-patched versions, the X1 version was worse?

    I'll take the word of a employee of a totally independent video uploader site that produced an objective analysis & revealed every stat than a jumped up troll who's desperate to shit on the PS4 & lies often
    Because Ollie and the OPM reviewer are jumped up trolls? Speaking of trolls and liars, both rather aptly describe you :cool:

    Have you forgotted how MS told Blizzard that 900p was "unacceptable" for Diablo 3? (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-diablo-3-xbox-one-1080p-patch-performance-analysis) How the unpatched 900p version was 60fps locked but the 1080p patched version averaged 55fps? Now we're in a position where a games resolution & frame rate are both fluctuating together (instead of just frame rate like most games). That's definitely going to influence CPU run time & frame pacing. It looks to me CD Projekt are trying to save face / generate PR for MS even if it compromises the product.
    Ah the old Sony pony conspiracy theory. I wondered how long it would take you to bring that up. Speaking of 1080p pressures, have you forgotten Sony's Watch Dog fiasco? Talk about a failed PR campaign to save face :cool:

    @Antropie
    Because they are not multi-platform games and we can't compare them to PS4 versions...
    I am not comparing PS4 and X1 exclusives you muppet :cool:. If MS had a policy to push for 1080p games only, surely they would practice that with their exclusives. There is plenty of evidence they don't. Is that clear or are you that much of a dumb arse?

    MS always tries its marketing bullshit on very anticipated games.

    We already had an example with COD AW...
    Really? So I guess you are forgetting the Sony "1080p 60 fps, only on the PS4" Watch Dogs scenario ;).

    Evidence ?
    What evidence do you have to the contrary? Didn't stop you spouting bullshit this whole time. That's my point :cool:

    @Beva78 For future reference I suggest you read all the posts involved before you comment. My original post, for which I was called a liar by resident muppet grassyknoll, was about the PRE-PATCHED version of the game.

    Some reviewers stated that the pre-patched PS4 version dropped down to 20 fps frequently. Even Ollie in his review mentions significant frame-rate issues for the PS4. Based on this analysis here, the pre-patched X1 version did not have as significant frame-rate issues. Naturally fanboy muppets like imt558 and Antropie are not mentioning that

  • frazzl 19/05/2015

    @Antropie 1) We are not talking about direct comparisons. The original poster claimed that MS was against having games with a 900p resolution. This claim is clearly bullshit given the fact that there are 900p MS exclusives.

    2) What does MS have to do with CDPR's decision to implement a dynamic resolution?

    3) In terms of the pre-patched versions, it is clear that the PS4 version had bigger issues. Now that the PS4 version has been capped that may not be the case, but introducing the cap for the X1 version shouldn't be an issue for CDPR. Especially given the fact that the frame-rate is virtually always above 30. Can the same be said about the PS4 version? And please don't link Neogaf stuff. That's pure garbage.

    @grassyknoll You are the one who's embarrassing themselves. This is my original post which you said was untrue:

    Some reviewers stated that the pre-patched PS4 version dropped down to 20 fps frequently. Even Ollie in his review mentions significant frame-rate issues for the PS4. Based on this analysis here, the pre-patched X1 version did not have as significant frame-rate issues. Naturally fanboy muppets like imt558 and Antropie are not mentioning that
    Note that I was only comparing the pre-patched versions. So the only one lying about shit here once again is you.

    A. None of these reviews actually did a frame rate analysis. The non responsive controls & off appearance could be explained by frame pacing, not frame rate. (which is explained by the analysis by Gamesyde). That is 3 times worst in the uncapped Xbox version currently.
    According to you the frame-pacing issues are "three" times as bad on the X1. Yet here you are suggesting that it is frame-pacing issues that made reviewers feel as if there were significant frame-rate issues with the PS4 version (sub 20 fps!). LOL indeed. AS for Gamesyde....Ahahahahahahah!

    Here's also what Ollie had to say in his review piece here:

    CD Projekt Red's enormous technical ambition has got the better of it; pre-release console versions suffered terrible frame-rate dips
    And before you say "he said consoles" note that the only version reviewed is the PS4 version.

    So once again you've proved your stupidity. Keep it up Kermit :D

    Microsoft didn't pump money into Red to help them out. Microsoft pumped money into Red to help themselves out. They didn't want the bad publicity from the Witcher being 900p on Xbox so they did what they could to convince Red to try harder.
    Rubbish. There are numerous games on the X1 that run at 900p. MS published X1 exclusives like KI3, Sunset Overdrive and the Halo 2 remaster. This is typical fanboy nonsense, and claiming to own the original Xbox is no proof of the contrary.

    Sony has been supporting indie developers for the past 2 years with no strings attached and look how much that's paid off.
    Yeah, let's have a look at Sony's business history please. Perhaps then you'll take off your black/white fanboy blinkers.

    "The approach Sony seems to be taking with The Tomorrow Children is one that seems to be their style as of late. Any developer will tell you that the less executives are involved in the creative process of a game, the more pure and true to itself the final version ends up being"
