Excited to see more up-to-date combat video, last video was nice but lack of it. In the end that video though they said the next video will be focused on combat so i am looking forward to it.

tbh i refuse to get excited for cross platform games when they are on last gen too

which is why im glad the next batman game they chose to just have it on current/new gen

this does nto look good graphics wise, lighting is ok but they does nto make up for shoddy textures etc

The textures are ok, it,s the placement of the textures. The level designer must have seen that, no?

You really don't understand economics do you? Cross gen is going to be standard for years to come, so you may as well make peace with it. Most games struggle to break even on last gen platforms, so with the increased budget of current gen there's no way they'll be profitable on their own until the user base is vastly larger than it will be this year or next.

hopefully they'll do as some have already been doing. ie. develop the current gen version themselves, and throw the previous gen version at some other developer. it'll at least free them up to make the current gen release more then just a res increase. or just do as rocksteady have done. drop previous gen all together. the sooner people have reason to buy current gen consoles (ie, games that are only avaliable on current gen consoles) then they'll get the userbase to support them. devs need to put in the effort if they expect people to increase the install base.

PS4 and Xbox One owners are now seeing what PC gamers have been dealing with for the last 8 years. They are getting slightly better looking ports.

Sure, there will be exclusives that are built completely for the new hardware. But those are few and far between. Expect a lot of multiplatform ports to fill in the gaps for the next few years.

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (1 Day ago)

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (1 Day ago)
