I was worried that because they were doing this game so fast (relativly) the atmosphere might suffer...but obviously thats not the case.

Id like to see the same video but in DX9 to see if the difference is small or huge.

got any Dr. Mario vs. MGS4 comparisons you'd like to make while you're at it? or maybe some Manhunt vs. Barbie Horse Adventures?

well i'm not delusional - i just think the comparison was silly. my basic point was why compare something with a realistic dark setting to something with a fairy tale style with hyper-stylized game assets.

just makes little sense, about as much as comparing dr. mario to mgs4 :P

Just to clarify for those who might not realize it: the game wasn't having framerate issues. It looked to be an issue with the device being used to record the footage, or possibly an issue with the encoding software used.

How do you know? Maybe he finds Fable more enjoyable than STALKER? Seems like you have a problem with his opinion...yours certainly isn't more irrelevant than his is if thats what your thinking.

Reading comprehension is something not used a lot in SW.

STALKER > Fable 2. Do you notice the 2?

He's pretty much saying that a game that hasn't come out yet is better than STALKER.

It's an opinion that's false and yes opinions can be wrong at times.

Here is the interview that went along with this video

http://extreme.pcgameshardware.de/showpost.php?p=9710&postcount=1

according to this, the DX10 stuff isn't even close to being completed. That would explain the inconsistancies within the framerate.

The framerate issue was the footage, not the actual game. If you notice, you will see that the entire footage freezes, not just the game being filmed.

Ok. I wasn't even paying that much attention to the video. It was too low quality. I just checked the screenshots.

My point still stands though, their DX10 isn't completed yet, so much so that they haven't even finalized what DX10 features they plan on using.
