All you're seeing is lighter colors brought on by a different time of day, a different position of the light source, and more contrast brought on by the different time of day. From what I can see there was no real physical downgrade, just a huge color and lighting shift based upon setting the scene at a different time of day. The light is clearly hitting the second images from a completely different perspective than before.

The textures and character models look virtually unchanged and the facial models have actually been improved. If you crank up the contrast and give the scene a bit brighter light and remove the orange effect, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the screens.

Of course that's all too logical to think about when you're mindlessly bashing a game. The image is a bit softer (probably a less intense AA method) and the shadows are probably a bit lower resolution, but the overall visuals of the game haven't really changed.

Everything I've seen from the latest gameplay videos the last week has been proof the game is as graphically impressive as the first time they've shown it. I was actually surprised to see it running so many particle effects and lighting effects yet able to keep a smooth framerate.

Your ignorance doesn't change those things no matter how many times you try to convince us otherwise.

I wish we had more mods like Wasdie, blue hazy, and Teuf -- unbiased, technically knowledgeable on the matter, and reasonable.

Instead we get lemmods like musicalmac, adobeartist, and freakin' steve o...

Epic thread backfire is god damn epic lol. TC got sucker punched hard like a turd. Infamous SS takes a dump on Ryse like left and right, time to close this silly silly thread.

#205 Posted by AM-Gamer (3941 posts) -

What disturbs me the most is that the old build are taken from official HD screenshots, while the new build is taken which appears to be screen grabs from a compressed youtube video. Im not sure why nobody has brought that up.

#206 Posted by gpuking (2875 posts) -

It's ok guys, in 7 days I'll post some decent directfeed shots from the share button and humiliate TC in a new thread;). I can't wait to drink his tears.

I noticed that to. I hate when users use screen grabs from youtube videos to bash a game's graphics on this board. Infamous second son will look better than those screen grabs in the OP anyway.

Yup, I know, 900pStation and 720pBox are in laughable position. I mean a game where a main character has no shadow from a dynamic light in 2014, laughingly bad.

We've already seen the game running, so I don't see what those images are supposed to prove.

Only in your fevered fanboy brain. Pure delusion...just like your claims of Killzone Shadow Fall beating Crysis 3 in graphics. lol

TitanFall has higher res than Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer but also more pixels. So you lost.

Here are some 'downgraded' new pics:

Looks amazing to me =)

Nothing in the game has been downgraded. TC is full of it.

Killzone's IQ is still native 1080p, Titanfall looks like a last gen mess on source engine with single digit frame rate drops and huge tears. Not to mention every other frame in Killzone is 1080p stitched just stitched a lower res.

Furthermore to completely own this entire thread and TC @FreedomFreeLife here's lots of delicious in game screen shots for you to cry over:

click

click

Some hyperlinked^ because they wouldn't upload. All these are in game by people who have got the game early and are slightly downgraded because of the PS4 compression file sharing system so think about what they look like actually on...your...screen.

This should be </thread> as I have just owned lemmy TC and his failed attempts to spread some FUD about this game on system wars. That last one of him in the air doing the karma bomb just shat all over those pictures from dualshockers. Game, set, match.

Edit: OK apparently I took too long making this post and someone beat me too it. The point of the whole post still stands though ;)

Yup but that doesn't change the fact that 720pBox is weaker than 900pStation in specs.

Ugh. I want to buy this game when I get my ps4 but I also want to preorder Destiny.

Even if there is a downgrade this game looks fucking spectacular

Lol, it's funny all the posters who happily tried to agree the TC but once debunked have all disappeared.

#226 Edited by BigBadBully (631 posts) -

The game has less features than Infamous 2 and doesnt bring anything new. You would expect for the third game in the franchise to bring in co-op or multiplayer. That's another downgrade besides just graphics. Review's will most likely knock the score down because of that. It's kind of sad that Ryse has more replayability and modes than Infamous SS, but this will be a filler game just like Ryse was on the xbox one.

no point in crying about it. If someone like adobe is mod on this site then you know the standards can't get any lower than that. XD

All that shots that have been posted are from actual gameplay screen caps LMAO, lemmings can't believe it's real.

Hahaha I can't stop laughing this lemming actually calls these in-game screen caps bullshots.

#230 Posted by hoplayletsplay (981 posts) -

This Infamous game looks so much better than the original one. I can't believe they made so much improvement since, like literally everything, from graphics to gameplay and story presentation. It really felt like a generational leap.

But then the graphics from the original game never bothered me, it was the repetition that got to me. Now that we have plenty of powers to play with, lets hope the missions and environment are more varied and have more feedback.

why would you expect that? And why is that a downgrade lol. Can games no longer be single player at all now? Does it? Have you played it? Pretty sure the game isn't out yet ;). I've replied because this just looks like a drive by shit posting comment, so will be interesting to hear your thoughts on the matter.

#232 Posted by RSM-HQ (784 posts) -

I believe the (downgrade) is merely difference in the weather patterns/ time of day.

I don't see anything other than different filters & shadows tweaked personally.

Best wait till you get your own personal hands on I suppose & judge it from that.

#233 Edited by Shewgenja (9302 posts) -

This thread backfired rather deliciously.

Of course, you almost can't blame the Lems these days. With Forza 5 and MGS GZ not having any weather or day/night transitions, it's easy to see why they get confused. We're only now beta testing weather and day cycles in the real world, too. I guess the problem with that being, Lems don't really live in reality, either.

Holy shit suckerpunch really worked hard this time around on their storytelling. In general alot of the leaked footage I've seen has given me a heavy uncharted vibe.

This must be a painful thread for TC to come back to every time it's bumped. Quite surprised it's not locked yet. Multiple times has the TC been proven wrong. There's nothing else to discuss.

Sure, but another lemming bits the dust every time a new pic of Infamous Second Son is posted in this thread.

@walloftruth: Um you engaged me first with your rubbish spelling/grammar checking. Then you kept responding with more of the rubbish yet im stalking you. Yeah right kid try harder. Maybe one day you will make the grade.

I cant help it if your blind and think rubbish looks good.

Actually, now I think about it im not going to engage you any more. You are obviously a child and to be honest it is beneath me so farewell chump. Have a great life.

Shall we judge Ryse's graphics based on it's score or will this end here and now?
