Activision just released some new screenshots of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Beware if you have limited bandwidth or a small computer screen, these are huge.

To be fair, how many games out there are using global illumination? Not very many, so it's unfair to slate it for that. It does look dated, though.

(Not defending the look or being a COD fanboy, but...)

GI, SSAO, Chromatic Aboration, etc...etc...

These are buzzwords either barely known/understood by forum-fighters and people game-dev-adjacent or actual game developers.

REAL PEOPLE don't care about these words. They'll buy COD in droves... again.

..and you were expecting what exactly?

Graphics whiners will have precisely zero effect on the COD juggernaut.

Plus it looks fine on the ageing hardware consoles are becoming, expecting anything different is amazingly fucking naive at this point.

People love it still, although I must confess I will be skipping this one myself.

    Megido @Sdarts: i tjink ive been pretty consistent in saying the books are better than the games. I dont know why you even directed that at me :) (5 Hours ago)

    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (9 Hours ago)

    Sdarts And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (9 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (9 Hours ago)
