    Even if you wanted to argue that its an important job (it isn't), they hired an absolute moron and overall pathetic of waste of space to do it. They would have been better off just shutting down their forums.

    Hyperbole maybe, but this guy is a fucking loser.

    That context of that post seems to be...the quality of the graphics? Pffft.

    In a shocking twist of fate, the game doesn't look as good on shitty console hardware as it does in trailers and press screenshots. This happens for every second AAA game on that forum, you'd think they'd have learned by now.

    Even if graphics don't matter all that much in terms of how enjoyable a game can be, and even though developers have lied time and time again, that still doesn't make lying right.

    All a matter of how much they are lying, if any. Well, and lying at this stage in terms of it being about a pre-release client isn't all that bad (or unexpected in this industry). He is right about reviews though.

    I've seen it before and I'm fairly certain that I know the reason what has happened.

    Obviously - lolconsoles, the game won't look as good as it looked like on screens when you're trying to play them on console, but it's fucking obvious, and I wonder why is anybody still in denial.

    Early screens though, are extremely sharp, which looks bullshotty and gameplay presentations don't look like that.

    I know other game that did it - Crisis, the problem was that promo screens were rendered at 4-8k, downscaled, they've used crazy AA etc. so the game looked much better than anything ever.I don't think that there was a single GPU able to play it in full hd/60fps back then(and promo screens were downscaled from 4 or 8 times bigger resolutions). Guess why were people complaining about "graphics not looking as good as on promos" here.
    CDPR probably did the same with those early screens.
    Also it's a weird coincidence that as soon as there were rumours about PS4 not being able to play it at 1080p, neogaf leaked something negative about the game.

    I never preorder games, nor I hold any big hopes for any of them anyway so no biggie if it'll be shit.

    :lol:

    People doubting that a sequel that significantly increases in scope wouldn't be hell on the lives of the people making it.

    I hope Patrick Mills on Cyberpunk's doing all right. :)

    I love how the GAF is freaking out over subpar textures and polycount when the art style looks pretty damn fine.

    Plus if textures are your biggest concern why the hell would you get a console version, come on.

    Those new screens don't look as detailed as previous screens.
