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.

    MrWhite the door for devs to allow them to do what they want without worrying about that. Everything else will automatically get better, but thats the key overall. (7 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Trico is massive. I felt like he was going to knock me over the edge a few times as he walked past. Great stuff. Shame about the teleportation, but fixing the motion sickness issue should open up (7 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Imagine God of War 3 for a VR port. It'd be immense. The Last Guardian VR demo too was superb, but frustrating because it wasn't the full game, but showed it can work. (7 Hours ago)
