Rise and shine, here are the ten first minutes of HL2 Xbox ! The long awaited port finally came in place before the 360's release, but even after a year or more, it still smell like a rush.
As you'll see in the video, the game looks fine, even if the textures have suffered a lot. There's also a bit of aliasing, but it's only cosmetic, small glitches. Because the real pain of Half-Life 2 Xbox, not mentioning the game itself, concerns its whole steamy engine, hardly giving a framerate that throw-out its lungs permanently. Well, maybe not "permanently", but long enough to be worried. It's really strange, because there's also a lot of HDR in the game, and I wonder why Vavle would put such an effect in the game without securing a good framerate. I mean, that's retarded. Anyway, if the slowings don't kill you enthusiasm, be sure the loadings will. I have cut them from the video, but you must know that there are FOUR loadings during the 10 first minutes of the game. This is... impressive.
Now, I'm done with the bad points, let's be sweet on Half-Life 2. So, except what I mentioned earlier, the game is just identical to its original version. The physics are exactly the same, and so are the maps. Finally, my point is: if you can pass these technological problems, you'll enjoy this game. You sure will. But, you must know that you will suffer. Your eyes will suffer. And so will your nerves. Ready to rumble ?
ps: following some requests, I forgot to tell you that the game supports 16/9.
but buying all digital on Xbox, got me a nice library of PC releases as well. Downloaded the FH4 demo as well, can't wait to see it running with the 1080 (4 Hours ago)
well my GTX 670 really did a good job, was there 5 years for me. But I hardly played games on PC. This won't change much... but good to know it could :) (4 Hours ago)
The little bug Knight is finally available on PS4 - [url] (11 Hours ago)
Definitely sounds like much more ambitious than anything they have released yet. (11 Hours ago)
@b0vril: I'll get my hunting simulator fix in RDR2 then, good to know :) I'm starting to see why this game took them almost a decade. They seems to have added truckload of content this time. (11 Hours ago)
Some details on RDR2 wildlife [url] Getting real excited for this game. (12 Hours ago)
I'll probably wait for Turing's die-shrink/refresh. (12 Hours ago)
