And yet they still press games on DVD for physical PC releases... I had to babysit the Titanfall installation since it came on 5 DVDs when it could have fit on 1 DL-BD... Takes me back to the days of 5-6 CD installation when the DVD format had already been out for 4+ years with Far Cry. I seriously think the first PC game I purchased that came on a DVD was Crysis in 2007.Uncompressed maybe, or just higher quality in general.
It looked a lot more polished and refined when I watched AJ myself last night. But I still can't stand that narrow FoV they insist on using, and it gets exacerbated by the exagerrated head movement. I'm led to believe that the horizontal FoV is only like 50-60 degrees. I was getting sick just from watching it. I guess one of the good things is it looks like the microstutter is gone.After Dead Island I have pretty much zero faith in Techland...but we'll see. I watched AngryJoe stream a bit of this last night, and it looked pretty much the same as Dead Island but with a bit more climbing around.
I read that night time is much more dangerous then day time. More aggressive zombies, and zombie types that are only active at night.
I hope so....that daytime map playthrough looked pretty boring....he just walked by 99% of the mobs, including the huge dudes with maces.
I read that daytime lasts for approximately 64 minutes (real time) while the night cycle only lasts for 7 minutes...seems a bit unbalanced but we'll see
Dying Light gameplay: The map from end to end
I don't know what to make of this game...it looks good but I'm still skeptical based on Techland's history...they claim that the issues with Dead Island were mainly caused by Deep Silver (publisher) and their interference...Techland promised that Dying Light would be of better quality than Dead Island due to its complex gameplay, extensive story as well as its more serious and mature tone...the development team also consider Dying Light "an opportunity to prove to people that we (Techland) have made a AAA game"
Its Sunday and the Dying Light key is nowhere to be seen, so if the video is late you know why. Supposed to be getting it tomorrow.
Since this is being published by Warner Bros. I wouldn't be surprised if the same PR firm they used for Shadow of Mordor is pulling similar shenanigans with this release. Hopefully because of this it means the game will turn out to be a gem like SoM. I'm just disappointed Techland stuck with the narrow FOV and exaggerated body movements from Dead Island...
