Just had a few matches on the beta. It's pretty rad. Defaulted to max settings on first boot but it was totally unplayable. For now I just busted everything to the lowest setting and it's surprising how nice it still looks after doing it.

apparently recommended for max graphics is a GTX 690!

and apparently theres a problem with the beta where it screws the framerate up which will be fixed for final release.

its explained on one of the frankieonpc beta videos on youtube.

i also uninstalled it after playing for half a round last night as i remembered how much i hate deathmatch

I had a few wasted matches last night too. I think my performance may have actually been better.

It's been an interesting experience, since this is (I shit you not) the first MP FPS I've played on PC since the ORIGINAL Call of Duty.

Jarry: I'm surprised I haven't seen that Frankie vid, will have to go and have another look. I did notice it seemed like the performance I was getting wasn't quite right, so that glitch might explain it. In any case, I'll just wait til the full game comes out before I bother to tweak up my settings; tweaking in-game in a match is annoying.

yeah after some playing around i found it was vsync fucking it all up. Apparently if it can't render 60fps you get 30 instead.

i now get 30ish in rain, 70+ when not looking at rain.

i wouldn't call it awesome. I'd call it pretty

even so the environments seem a bit flat - i'm struggling to find a way to describe it but it's like there's no visual depth which makes it fucking hard to pick objects/bad guys out etc without the assistance of the visor LOL NOOB GLASSES AMIRITE

the game itself is just another shooter which has been on rails for the first few areas. I've just gone into new york & done the first couple of bits in there.

the bow is cool. that's about the only thing the gameplay has going for it so far (to set it apart from eleventy bazillion other shooters). Annoying how little ammo you can carry for it though.

anyone picked it up on XB yet?

I've seen it for $60 on ozgame... cheaper anywhere else? I wouldn't mind getting it, but not paying full price. still have too many games to finish and one more week of no judgement.

Yeah, I agree. It's all pretty linear and the story isn't particularly interesting.

Yeah, I noticed this. I think this comes with the territory of more detailed, realistic graphics; the scenes are so busy that everything kinda blends. It looks pretty, but could be detrimental to gameplay.

The enemy detection shits me. They can spot you so quickly in places you really shouldn't be able to be seen. It seems counter intuitive to have such a realistic environment that doesn't have a realistic effect on stealth.

skyrim is massively pretty & i don't have a problem with that. It's like they've gone overboard with shaders or something in this so it all blends too much. There's no definition between edges

yep shitting me too. if you aren't cloaked they'll spot you instantly from a mile away even if they're not facing you at the time. As long as there's nothing in between you & them they see you.

Shyeah, or even if there is something between you sometimes.

Skyrim is pretty, but it's scenes are nowhere near as detailed as Crysis. More geometry smashed into one screen, more foliage everywhere. So much texture depth and tessellation, plus the film grain, dirt on the visor, flares. I think it just all adds up.

It's better than that. It's more like the modern FPS trend of the decent single-player being not much more than a extended tutorial for the far superior multiplayer, which is pretty boss in this game.

Or more correctly, programming AI is hard so most scrub FPS developers don't really bother with it and just go for a couple of hours of scripted content instead.

This takes way longer so they don't make long sp games.

go to the right of when you come out, just keep heading that way, you'll see a ledge to jump up a little. btw your nanosuit says it doesnt work but your camo still does.

once you get up there you'll meet pyscho.

all good from there.

btw, got the game working again after i did a repair install having to download 4gb again. ridiculous.

games so stupidly pretty, playing on all high graphics frame rate seems really high (no idea how to actually check it?)
