I'm guessing Sub-HD resolutions again, if so I'll wait for the PC version.

You guess wrong, fake nostradamus. Game is now 720p with FXAA opposed to the demmanding 4xMSAA solution. Way better than that sub-HD POS looking Siren: Lost Translation @ 500p with BlurAA(QuicnuxAA), and nears the IQ of the aproaching PC release of AW.

1200 points to be more precise, mine are already lined up.

why do you bring up a game that probably had less than half the budget and came out years ago as reference to how good this looks in comparison? Makes zero sense

perfect example of how a game can not only be bad looking by its standards but even worse by the lack of definition the sub-hd upscalling creates, you even get a shit smuged of vaseline to blurify the stink all over it.

sub-hd is bad. crap post-processing blur in top of it is even worse. At least something like Halo 3 made you suffer from jaggies that cut your eye, but didn't make you cross-eyed trying to figure what crap texture is that through all the vaseline IQ that some games think that blur is better than jaggies.

Because he's a silly fanboy that needs to take as many shots at the other side as possible. Duh.

720p + FXAA also doesn't approach 1080+ with 16XAA.

There's no guarantee that there will ever be one. Don't forget--the PC version of Alan Wake isn't published by Microsoft Game Studios. There's very little indication one way or another if this is even a possibility.

so it's 720p that is great news.

Try playing games for fun not for what resolutions they are.

probably not, i hardly doubt the game is v-synced now that it even is 720p.

Hey, I'm not the one who has to constantly validate my decisions by being an asshole on the internet. How's that working out for you?

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (47 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @jmd749: Kojima Productions is independent. wrap that and give it away to your other half. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Ultimates do drive big plays. Don't think it makes everyone Seagull. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I've played a ton of Halo too. Just not Halo 5 because I'm not a masochist. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tiz: "Individual skill" still drives top players to become top players in OW. The team with the better comp *and* better players is going to win. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tiz: Eh.. "more dependant on individual skill" is one way to look at it. (1 Hour ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @droezelke: it's awesome that one of the greatest minds in game development is given funding and respect. And using a hardware specific engine for his new game suggests he'll be a Sony 1st party dev. (1 Hour ago)
