Grounded was one of the best making of documentaries i've seen. If its on par with that it'll be awesome.

Its on youtube i believe. The performance troy baker gave for the opening is incredible. And for ND to push him that far showed their exacting standards and made it pretty clear that the rest of the industry don't seem to give a shit in comparison.

UC4's daylight is so vibrant though. the cutscenes look so apart form the actual game play. UC4 is so colorful.

I find Uncharted 4 very realistic but stylized at same time. Some of the shots from the story trailer look more like a painting rather than photorealistic . Thats probably why Quantum break and ROTR look better for some.

One thing i hope gets improved in the final game is the motion blur. Its too much imo and it creates some artifacts if you look closely. An option to turn it off or reduce it would be nice.

Well, the Nathan Drake collection did have an option to customize motion blur. Maybe Uncharted 4 will have this too?

Your obsession with Tomb Raiders graphics is becoming worrisome. Can we just have an Uncharted thread, or do you always have to do this?

He is probably trolling/baiting.

I agree Uncharted 4 is having the painted look to it. Especially in screenshot I am not sure I like it

He's insecure. I wouldn't worry about it.

Just got done playing the first 3 again on the remake collection. I forgot how fucking awful the combat and boss battles are. This series uses some of the cheapest tactics I've ever seen to create very cheap difficulties. I really hope they find a way to improve the combat but the third did feel slightly better so I'm gonna be optimistic. Obviously the presentation is great with fun characters. I just wish the puzzles and combat had way more to offer.

*eats on an turkey sandwich*

lol, The Witcher 3 looks better than Rise of the Tomb Raider. Clearly it's not up to challenging Uncharted 4. *shrugs*

About the game


What's up?

    nostradamus Megaton Rainfall! (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (1 Day ago)
