Watch Dogs; 1st PC Gameplay vidz+Real Ultra Screenshots

#101 Edited by jhonMalcovich (4343 posts) -

Actually, I retract after watching Conan O´Brian´s footage. The car do take damage when crashed and gun shots do produce blood splatter. It´s pretty weird why PC ultra footage haven´t shown it.

Second Son has no AA. Very sad :<

There seems to be SMAA. Not amazing, but it hides 80% of jaggies.

But yeah...

My friend, pc gamers play Black Flag, it destroyed Second Son. So, even if somehow (and it isn't the case) Watchdogs did look bad, pc gamers are still the best in the world by default.

BUT THE GRAPHICS

#105 Edited by scottpsfan14 (2345 posts) -

it's only incomparable because it looks better than infamous. If it didn't you'd love to compare the two. You sound real fanboyish right now. In trumps infamous in pretty much every way and it is only in alpha.

Nah your missing the point. When people were comparing Infamous to Crysis 3, I said it's a moot comparison because they are 2 totally different games with different focus points. Infamous SS is a kind of cartoonish art style in a sense with a non hyper realistc art style. It's focus points would be character models, geometry, animations, and particle effects. Crysis 3 is an FPS with some amazing effects. Focus points would be vegetation, water, lighting, and lots of other effects like that. One thing I did point out was that ISS is a next gen game of it's genre, while Crysis 3 is not. That doesn't mean to say that Crysis 3 is worse than infamous in every way. Both do different things good. I mean, HL2 is a 6th gen game, yet it still looked better than infamous 1 in a lot of areas. Not all, but still some. I'm not being a fanboy by pointing that out.

Nope. PC gamers (elitist ones at least) are the single most obnoxious people in the world. They are arkward to get on with and think they know everything. They blindly assume something is better graphics just because it's on PC. Like modded GTA 4 being better graphics than Infamous SS.

As a PC gamer it's time for me to take downsampled pictures of a game with a shitty graphics mod that only adds overdone post-processing effects.

Jaggies and low res textures all over the place. Disappointing show old chum.

Being a pc gamer with a new cool graphics card, I use TXAA, for men. See how the tree's look like tree's and not just big pixelly pieces of shit? See how the rope looks like rope and not just garbled SS bike spokes? This is what happens when you are a pc gamer. Greatness comes, it doesn't wait.

Those SS textures, oh my gods. Awful.

Your Assassins Creed shots look like ass son. No kidding.

Running a last gen game designed to run on the PS3/360 and WiiU with advanced AA doesn't stop it from looking like a last gen game. It's still a turd, a smooth turd but still a turd.

Lol, the new PC's going to your head lol. AC4 is a linear game compared to infamous. Besides, it looks like that on PS4. Pretty much identicle.

Infamous textures are nothing amazing, but they are nice. As for PS4 game textures...

But whatever..

I think it's the problem with leaked versions and it may be configured to PC settings already in retail version . Game looks amazing in 'REAL' Ultra settings .

I don't think the real ultra settings exist. I agree with what some people on other forums say, that it's just a placebo. I did some testing with that config file. I noticed that even though I set textures to high or ultra (only have a 2gb card but it barely drops performance actually) that in the config theres a line called TextureResolutiuonQuality which was still set at medium. Set that to ultra and now it looks slightly better, maybe.

Uploaded some screens to imgur. Resolution is 2048x1152 with most settings maxed and the AA is temporal SMAA. Images 14-17 have textures and AO at ultra with the altered config file.

I'd use imageshack but it's no longer free and my converted images are small enough to not get compressed by imgur. Anyone know of another image uploading site like imageshack but free? If there's a way to record video without killing performance, I'd upload some .webm vids too.

the Elitists are downright lul, especially when they try to downplay a game as damn good looking as infamous, that's a red flag not to take what that person says seriously.

whoa? Just weeks ago everyone saying how much better it will look over PS4 and yet it's pretty much similar. lol. It's funny how everyone falls for theoretical specs and hype every single time.

@Ben-Buja said:

I've got the game early, here are some of my screenshots:

I have to agree with Wasdie, most screens and videos out there don't really do it justice. It looks great on PC.

Looks so bland and boring. GTA 5 definitely looks more alive than this, for a place like Chicago, there isn't much going on out there. Graphics look like a modded GTA IV. Unfortunately it always seems these open world urban games gets old pretty quick. There's only so much fun in stealing cars, fighting cops or exploring a city where nothing really stands out on it's own to feel more than just a shell of buildings and limited A.I. bystanders.

#135 Edited by RyviusARC (4097 posts) -

I hate to be that guy but Infamous shits all over this game graphics wise. The only thing it has good going for it are the nice water and the higher resolution and 60fps on PC, other than that it looks horribly bland. Ubisoft definitely pulled a bait and switch on this game, looks nothing like the original reveal even on superior PC hardware.

My Infamous screens I took while playing the game, no bullshots or promo shots here...

hics of Watch Dogs are even more of a joke when you see the ridiculously high system requirements you need to get it to run smoothly on Ultra settings. It's an unoptimized POS like other Ubi games. I can't wait for some better devs to show the noobs at Ubi how to do a proper 8th gen open world game on PC.

So much blur in all the image backgrounds.......so sure it looks good whne you try and hide the flaws.

Only thing I did was turn off the HUD, these are uploaded straight from my PS4.

It really does look better than Watch Dogs. Blame it on Ubi for porting WD to PS3 and 360 as well. Last gen is holding back WD.

The image quality is actually much better, blame Gamespots compression and the fact that I had to use jpgs because of the huge resolution and filesize.

These shots are incredible.

But from the vast array of shots I've seen the game is very inconsistent. Can't wait to play it first hand though

#143 Edited by m3dude1 (824 posts) -

of course theres less detail its further away, this game has an aggressive ass LOD system, even on ultra.

#144 Edited by faizan_faizan (7670 posts) -

My only complain so far has been on cubemap reflections and NPC models. The lighting is fantastic unlike what others are saying. Ubisoft said that Watch Dogs was using global illumination some time ago, which is turning out to be true.

If you captured the screenshot as a PNG or BMP then used a program like photoshop to convert it to a JPG with a quality of at least "10" then you should notice no difference between the original and compressed versions.

I have tested this myself thoroughly.

you can say the same thing to PS4 fan boys with all their this game has a higher resolution than xbox version threads.

Nah. With a cow or a lem, it's all petty stuff. With some of these hermits, they define themselves with their rigs and spend their spare time shitting on consoles for being weak. There are a lot of hermits who seem to think they know everything about graphics, programming, optimization, entirely based on their own, or other reddit/pcmasterrace members conjecture. They go as far to say devs are incorrect and they mean something different. They spread misinformation like a disease. If you argue against some of these hermits, no matter how logical, or how much facts you have to back your claim up, if they have made up their mind, you, and everyone else (including developers) are incorrect because it totally circumvents their views. This is ignorance, and if you can't see it, then I don't know where your looking. Hermits are the most obnoxious people on SW without question.

I beg to differ, Sony "fanboys" are, without a doubt the most obnoxious people within all gaming media sites these days. Although, I have a few friends on here that are Sony fans, most of the time they are trolling for fun. I've been seeing you post quite a bit lately on here, and you honestly are starting to come across as just another "Sony warrior" to be quite honest. You bounce between making decent posts, but then you constantly get in "defense" mode about the PS4 for some reason. You also bash the Xbox One, and you seem to have a vendetta against PC as well. Just speculation.
