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.

About the game


What's up?
  • Megido
    Megido I set Dark Souls up to run on my Vive, got barfy af after like 10 minutes. Same with any game that doesn't use teleport movement. Tried trackpad move in one game, almost fell over from the confusion. (0 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Which apparently has "no games" according to people who supposedly love JRPGs ;) (6 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @alimokrane: Attach rates matter too. See PS Vita. (7 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And not just for some but some experiences. VR stuff that's developer for VR is obviously the best VR stuff. (7 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: VR improves for some. Remember that not all people can handle VR. (21 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but at the end of the day it's still just a sold separately peripheral. and you can't force any dev to support a peripheral. (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog kinect is different though. it sold for the same reason the wii did. not necessarily because it actually improved the core experiences associated with gaming. VR however, does. (53 minutes ago)
