    Yes. This one is actually not about the story but the gameplay.

    There's nothing noteworthy about The Council's graphics, it should be struck off your list.

    Final Fantasy XV looks as good as The Witcher 3, if not better.

    Elite Dangerous is probably the best looking space game that isn't a money laundering scheme.

    RAGE 2 and Metro Exodus are great looking shooters.

    If you can accept its sense of style it's a surprisingly great looking game, though its TAA is pretty blurry.

    playing on ultras walking sim Everybody's gone to the Rapture. It looks fantastic.



    I was longing for years to fing game with visuals like in that "thousands of lighthouses" scene from the end of Bioshock: Infinite. You know.



    also started TW3, it surely looks awesome (though I have an annoying bug with the chain mail visualization), gameplay is popamole as hell though.

    Alice: Madness Returns was probably the most beautiful shit I've ever witnessed on my monitor, and only because the laptop I bought at the time was rather brand new within the year after the game's release.

    Since getting my 1440p monitor I've played around with nVidia's DSR and running things at 5k. It's pretty funny how even pretty old games can crumble at that resolution. If you want a true test of your hardware, and to see some amazingly crisp visuals, play around with DSR 2x2 (the only way to use it really, as it's the only setting without distortion).

    I was underwhelmed by Mad Max. The movie on the other hand had some of the best visuals I've seen in a film.

    That surely looks interesting! However, I know very well by practice the distinction between planning and developing and even more deep and sharp discinction between developing and releasing.

    Its kinda sad to see that literally no real visionary today can obtain enough money to make it real.

    I was about to mention that we live in a timeline where fucking EA exist, but then remembered than McGee's out there fighting for the rights to make the 3rd game, so yeah.

    Unfortunately, we can't forget about fucking EA. These are the fucking donkeys who removed Madness Returns entirely from Steam and hold it hostage in their shitstore.

    EA hasn't even bothered putting the first Alice up for digital distribution. :negative:

    It is actually funny that the most demanding game to the moment that I've tried was fucking MORROWIND! Fullrest mode on ultras gave me 10 fps and still looks like shit. Why do you even develop the mod (for the 2003 game, Jesus) if need to be NASA worker to play it on your PC.

    Final Fantasy is known for catering to its players' cock-riding needs.

    As for the topic:

    Ori And The Blind Forest

    Wall projector or huge ass screen actually recommended.

    But is the gameplay any good? Remember trying it for 5 minutes, astonishing voiceover.

    Apart from ultra simplistic combat (actually, just the basic attack - later on you can use other abilities as well) it's:
    • Very enjoyable
    • Hard (as far as I can tell)
    • Fair (no bullshit deaths)
    As for the combat, at least it is well integrated with movement and enemies often serve as more than just obstacles to be defeated.
    Astonishing OST too.

    Around 12h for exhaustive playthrough.

    I'd probably rather play it with original visuals, but neat there's mods for it. I'm sure the game is widely available through other means but it's just odd EA don't sell it. They sell everything else old that they own, pretty much. I doubt McGee has any real rights involvement, but hey maybe he does.

    Fortunately, I plundered a copy from sailing the Seven Seas.

    Not that I would ever consider giving even a cent to fucking EA if they ever put a digital version of the game.

    Agree. Veronica looks like a plastic fuckdoll for lonely lesbians in those FNV character overhaul screencaps.
