I don’t know quite how Remedy managed to make a game that looks this good almost 10 years later, but they have. It really is a testament to the quality of their artists that Max Payne 2 could pretty much pass for a modern game at first glance. It’s also one of the reasons im totally not excited about Max Payne 3. I personally think Rockstar aren’t half the talent Remedy are.
TFU stinks of “bad console port” like it was a new fragrance from David & Victoria Beckham. Yet i cant find it in my heart to hate this game, because despite being locked at 30FPS (fucking WHAT), it looks gorgeous. There’s no native AA option but forcing AA via your card seems to work well, and doesn’t even have an impact on performance, because it’s locked at 30FPS anyway!
Metro 2033, one of my favourite games of 2010 on 360, which i was finally able to play on PC in 2011, and now can finally run in DX11 mode in 2012. I’d say iv’e recouped the initial cost of the game now that ive finished it about 5 times and spent over 25 hours on it according to steam! So lets take a look at this tesselation stuff!
GTA 4 – ICEnhancer
So yeah, i cant get iCE 2.0 to work. The game wont even start if i try and install it. My confidence was also shaken somewhat by opening the install folder to see a file in it named “IT DOESNT LOOK VERY GOOD”. So what i did was reinstall 1.25 and marvel at the best version of iCEnhancer so far.
So I’ve been mucking about with more Tech Demos and whatnot since upgrading my old 4870 to the 560 ti Twin Frozr.. It’s a brave new world of Tesselation, DX11, and worrying about setting my PC on fire.
So we’re back with Jasmin again. Only this time i was able to run it on a PC designed for high end gaming instead of excel. So yeah im convinced. It looks stunning in 1680×1050 with actual anti aliasing. And i even took a bonus nude shot for all you perverts out there. (obviously this was to test how skin looked with Jasmin…)
Guess who just got a DX11 Nvidia card? Bye bye, ATI!
As impressive as this looks, it took about 15 minutes to render, and will give you roughly 1FPS.. lol indeed
