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.

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.

    Moonwalker better already. These matches can get quite tense and hectic and that's great. Really digging the diversity of these characters and their abilities. (3 Hours ago)
