No tesselation? Really?
Do you realize how few games use tessellation? It'd be more surprising if this console port had tessellation. Plus, tessellation performance thus far has been pretty awful.

Auto Pad, Mouse and Keyboard Switching
Good. Everything should do this.

Some of the animations could really use some work, the running looks quite stale. The visuals at least look okay, and the effort put in the PC port seems better than I expected.

Now this Ubi could learn from.

Doesn't look bad. If there is a game remains to be seen.

Is tesselation really that noticeable in today's games? I've played a couple of games sporting it like Crysis 2 and Deus Ex and I couldn't really tell the difference if not for some comparison screen shots on the net. If the implementation was like something similar to the Heaven benchmark then I would be having that setting enabled.

I totally respect developers that take advantage of PC hardware and do not just do console ports. Unlike some people that buy expensive hardware then pirate games its like shooting themselves in the foot. I will be purchasing this one if it gets decent reviews =)

Greenmangaming.com has a 25% voucher for this game (and others) if you check the blog link at the top of the page (expires on the 10th). I decided to roll the dice on this one. Hope it's decent.

    aphex187 @Tiz: Aye it's a gimmick but it kinda worked pretty well with the right games ;) (44 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But 98% of my Kinect usage is directions and pausing films and apps. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @aphex187: Kinect is still fun for a joke, mostly because it is a joke. A gimmicky peripheral that kind of suits Friday night madness. I have had my fair share of fun with it when relatives are around (2 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Cheers guys, think i'll leave i then. It was only a thought for friday night drunken antics ;) (2 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @aphex187: It's useless to me. I haven't used it since launch week. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @aphex187: Really Kinect is a glorified microphone. Super useful for when you don't want to cave dive the UI. For game, I think there is Kinect Sports. (4 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Thinking of getting a Kinect for the One but i take it the library of games is pretty sparse right? I already have one for the 360 and was thinking is there any point in getting one for the One? (5 Hours ago)
