I wonder if these assholes are gonna use the same shitass consolized engine again.

I lost faith in them ever making another good PC version after the last one. Unless, perhaps, they went back to a version with an auld-skewl isometric view worthy of a proper digital RPG. As in the first two Fallouts. Not gonna happen, though. Sumbitches.

There is one singular rule for modern AAA games.

Don't pre-order. EVER.

If you do, cancel it. Get your money back, wait for it to come out, read the reviews and check user score from Metacritic, do your due diligence.

Then if it's good buy it from -75% discount.

"Listen to the crappy sound of studio mic & digital recording! LOL!"

"It's amazing that they couldn't record the artist's intent into the recording back then!"

Eventually resolution and sound will match reality so it'll be just like in the room w/ im hearing it live. Even walking around. Holodeck shit.

Current technology sucks ;)

Some screens already have higher DPI than eyevision.

It's about range vs. resolution and DPI of the screen. Move a high DPI screen far enough and as soon as you lose sight of pixels altogether it has exceeded your ability to see - your eyes' DPI at that range.

The problem is mostly in filling a ~120-140 degree field of vision with sufficient DPI. It's not about monitor technology, it's the sheer quantity of dots a human eye can see, rendering it all in real-time takes a really powerful system - an expensive system.

This could be alleviated by eye tracking and focusing rendering in the eye focal area. The peripheral vision field could be rendered less precisely, thus saving a lot of GPU resources.

The second problem comes from creating depth as you need a high FPS rating, high frequency screen. Drawing 120 screens a second at very high resolution takes a lot of GPU.


We'll get there.

Walking around is going to be hard. You simply won't have the space in your typical shitty big city two-room apartment.

This is why sims work the best as you are simulating the experience of sitting down in a seat.
