Amen to that. Except I hated the 60 fps at 4k (DSR) and opted for almost constant 120+ 1080 cause I only have a 1070.I've been replaying Doom over the last week and when playing last night @ 4K maxed out and admiring some of the gun textures and environments all-the-while playing at a smooth 60FPS I said to myself "Man, they should make every game with ID Tech 6.
No drivers is a terrifying thought. Drivers are what make some games work as well as they do. Nvidia and AMD have to find ways to fix some of the horribly messy code in games. Drivers not being a thing means we're left to the whims of underpaid, overworked, stressed out, time crunched, developers.Amen to that. Except I hated the 60 fps at 4k (DSR) and opted for almost constant 120+ 1080 cause I only have a 1070.
It's funny because even though many games, especially multiplayer, do render at 120 and beyond but still feel sluggish. Not the case with id tech.
The industry can't move to Vulkan fast enough. Fuck drivers. Let's see who has the better GPU and who has the better engine. This time for reals
Never said anything but everyone, or preorders. But I know lots of people that never even played RAGE feel a need to crap on it 'cuz bandwagon.So we're supposed to base expectations for this sequel not on its predecessor, but on a completely different (legendary) game series? Suddenly, being skeptical of a sequel to a game that bombed makes everyone "edgelords" - get that pre-order money ready! I'd say "wait and see" is totally justified.
Seeing it uses a different engine I doubt it will suffer the same issues.I still have not gotten through more than 5 minutes of Doom, audio is hosed. I know its a documented bug and issue but drivers and such have not fixed it so it sits collecting dust I hope this does not have the same issues.
id typically consults or works closely with the people that they contract out to. (Raven, Machine, etc.) Even when the games have been a bit of a departure from their previous iterations, they always nail the combat and shooting aspects. I would expect the same here. It will have an Avalanche skew to the game, but I expect the overall aesthetic, gunplay, etc. to be 95% id at least. id consulted for Bethesda on Fallout 4 to help them improve their shooting mechanics, and it seemed to have a positive effect in that department. (as another, different example)Looks are one thing, let's hope the gameplay is there too, I trust id to get shooting right, these guys? not so sure.
I hope so, I hope they don't mess up the gunplay id is know for.As a big fan of the original ***ducks*** this one looks improved in just about every way. I can't wait to play it. The original was fun as is, and the expansion mission was a nice addition. Despite the initial flaws it was a pretty solid id-style shooter. This one just looks over the top in the best way possible. I like the melee and the weird powers they added in. It's an id game, so why not? Looks like if RAGE and Borderlands were mixed, ditched the cell shading, and gave it a little added grit. So... Perfect I guess?
I seriously doubt that they will. id tends to keep their fingers in the projects that they're putting their name on, even if other studios did the bulk of the work. I'm not worried. Let's just hope I'm not wrong.I hope so, I hope they don't mess up the gunplay id is know for.
RAGE 2: Eden Assault – Extended Gameplay trailer...
looks really good...the graphics look amazing with gorgeous use of color...gameplay also looks much improved...
Just Cause 4 was made by the New York studio. This is being made by the home studio in Stockholm. Just Cause 4 was also made for Square Enix, who are one of the worst when it comes to pushing games out before they're ready. There is a reason IO Interactive went private.Given the mess that Just Cause 4 is i'm worried about this game.
