who are the people that value resolution more than frame rate?

Definitely depends on the game, but in most of the stuff I play, I'd prefer it hiccup every now and again than be blurry the entire time. I hardly care about framerates greater than 30 fps. In some games it's necessary, though, so I'll definitely take the rez hit in those cases.

I guess that was preeeeeeeeeetty vague.

But expanded, what I meant was I can't even fathom to understand the people that say Dark Souls 2 on PS3 is superior to the X360 version.. Granted I haven't played either, but everything I have read says the PS3 version runs at a slightly higher resolution but has a noticeably worse frame rate. 30fps games are totally fine, i only think a few genres really demand 60fps.. well really only one genre demands 60fps anymore, but its nice in a few. But when games start running ~20fps? That sucks..

Yep, Dark Souls is one of those I'd rather have running smooth as butter. I'll be goddamned if I die due to a framerate dip. The framerate in Blight Town made the game almost unplayable on whichever console I had it on (360, I think). The textures are too muddy for the resolution to matter much anyway.

Also, racing, fighting, and competitive FPS. Those are the genres that really need 60 fps. Oh, and Platinum games. lol

turns out the PSU i bought in haste to get a working machine is a piece of junk.

it is working fine for now, but from all the feedback i've got it is going to fail within the next week or the next year. -___-

pc gaming can get kind of expensive if you are dumb

To me it depends on what 'noticeably worse' actually means. If we're talking a difference of 60 FPS on Xbox and 30 FPS on PS3 then i'd rather have the high resolution since it's still a stable frametrate at 30. If we're talking 30 FPS on Xbox and 20 FPS on PS3, then I'd rather take the resolution hit to at least have a playable framerate. But that's yet another argument for PC, since we get the best of both worlds :P

Anybody else get bombarded with these little ad videos on the forum pages? I find them horribly annoying as it's hard to find the damn video box since it's so small, and scrolling through the forums and hearing voices/music come out of nowhere is equally annoying. I hate them...

#363 Posted by MethodManFTW (25790 posts) -

@yokofox33: yeah dude.. I turn off Adblock on all the sites I regularly visit, but f those stupid auto playing video ads. They are the worst.

#364 Posted by Texas2089 (16448 posts) -

Lol ads.

I had the chance to do 5-8 hours over time but heck no. Imo, its not worth it when you're going to get taxed heavily for it when you already get a good 35-40 hours already.

TGIF.... this has been a long a$$ week.

#377 Posted by ryrulez (11604 posts) -

It's a beautiful sunny day. Gonna have to draw the curtains to plays Dark Souls 2.

#378 Posted by Young_Charter (19884 posts) -

@ryrulez: Get some fresh air and vitamin D from the sun before you experience that big ass chunk of stress. lol

@Terrencec06: It sure has bro.... *sigh* it sure has. My legs stil feel a bit cramped up due to my first week of work. Standing up for 8 hours is a real bitch. Only benefit from it is there is really no labor cept for that lol

@The_Last_Ride: Just play your cards right bro. Do what you can and if you can, grab up a part time.

Well, I finally got around to playing RE6...that game feels like a really big missed opportunity. There's some good ideas and then there's some really bad ideas and then executed poorly half the time and executed pretty well the other half. Jake's campaign was easily my favorite followed by Ada's. Leon's is so goddamn boring and pointless for the first half plus you have Helena who just sucks. And Chris's campaign was probably the worst though, Leon's is pretty close, Chris's campaign is just flat and boring all the way through. Resident Evil has never been a bastion of video game narrative but it was always fun in a silly B movie kind of way, RE6 just sucks all the fun and excitement out of the narrative. It's god awful. None of the returning characters act anything like their old selves, Leon is super gruff and serious, Chris is a goddamn emotional wreck and Ada is some wisecracking, snarky action chick. Characters always took their situations seriously in RE but there was never this much goddamn senseless drama just for the sake of drama. Any opportunity they have to abandon established characters for the sake of drama, they take it and my eyes just rolled back into my head.

Not to mention the actual plot of the game doesn't kick up until half way through everyone's campaign and even then the villain's motivations are so unclear as is what the fuck is actually happening and who's doing what. Needlessly confusing and somehow more ridiculous than RE5. Plus it's so goddamn uninspired, when it's not just aping off shit from past RE games, it just puts in some generic uninteresting bullshit. Neo-Umbrella? Another Raccoon City incident? Another giant mutant snake? Another intelligent B.O.W with the express purpose of hunting down one person? Oh look a level in a sewer, oh look a level in a church, oh look a level in some catacombs.

This all being said, I think Jake's and Ada's campaigns are solid, I really liked the dynamic between Jake and Sherry, they're easily the best pair in the game. And the actual gameplay mechanics are interesting and fun when they work out right, the problem is the game is poorly designed around the mechanics. If each campaign was like half as long, the game would be much stronger.

I'm sorry son, but that is not an option. Instead of you repeatedly telling I and your family members how great the game is, take your ass outside. Now. :D

#385 Posted by anime_gamer007 (6142 posts) -

@Young_Charter: Yeah, mediocre would be the best word to describe it. I just tried The Mercenaries mode too which was the best part of RE5 and I think it is also ruined in this game. So, good job, Capcom!

#386 Edited by Young_Charter (19884 posts) -

@anime_gamer007: Are you serious bro ? I really thought about buying that game since it was only 17.99, but sheesh. Capcom ruined everything. Looks like Dead Space 3 blew it as well lol

Awwww yeah. Spring break has finally arrived! I'm going to hibernate for the whole fucking week, sleep off all this stress.

But first... I must win back the stick of truth!!

@MethodManFTW someone took that thing. someone who knows enough about planes to make it untraceable.
