    Some Rome 2 screenies, hoping to get in before the master and his amazing pc and eye for a shot. I ended up playing too long it seems :(

    Some cavalry charges - It wouldn't be a total war game with out it


    A friendly chat in the melee - this was accompanied by "anyone know whose head this is?"


    These are cheering that the enemy routed, but it looks silly

    These are nowhere near as pretty as seph, but its on ultra settings, one down from extreme. :/

    How come? I heard there was a filter that makes everything a bit 'pastelly'?

    Yeah there is that and it just generally looks very dull. Plus some of the textures, especially the terrain look like they're from Medieval 2. I'm getting about 20-30fps at the moment, sometimes going to single digits when it gets too intense (and that's on an i5 4670 @4.44ghz & 2xgtx680's). Although that's mostly down to the game not having SLI support yet (waiting for the next nvidia driver).

    It can look good at times though (especially the naval battles)...

    Seph - that performance is pretty terrible. I was gonna build a new rig for Rome 2 but I guess I will leave it a month or two and see how the benchmarks / optimisation looks.

    Reckon they have done as they did with Shogun 2 on launch and release with a very stripped down AA setting. Was about a month before they sorted it last time.

    Performance wise it runs as well as Shogun 2 for me on extreme, more or less. Graphics wise it's not as crisp up close, the terrain is notably more plain across the board, but the animations are fluid and unless you're looking specifically for graphics as opposed to just playing the game it looks good. Given that I rarely zoom in I don't really care at present about it's lack of definition. Battles have more men, spectacle is more impressive on the whole than any other unmodded TW game up to this point I'd say.

    Probably a good plan man. Think I'm going to hold off playing it again myself until there have been a few patches. Total war games have a tendency to be a bit broken on launch but this is pretty bad (and that's coming from someone who's bought every single TW game on release).

    SC Blacklist:

    I was really not a big fan on conviction but I'm growing quite fond of this. It's no chaos theory but it's a great stealth game in it's own right.

    You should take the last shot out, it's a pretty big spoiler of one of the coolest things in the game that doesn't happen until the last mission.

    Rome II









    Given there's like 8000 dudes on screen at once all modelled to this degree and it runs as well as Shogun 2 (i think the animations are more fluid if anything) I think it looks pretty good to be honest. There's room for improvement but I'm more than happy with where it's at. Mind you I never zoom in anyway except to take screen shots or watch a retreat or replay. Too confusing otherwise.

    I want to play Binary Domain, but I've also heard that the actual game-play is merely okay, but then I've also heard about Big Bo and a French robot. So, I feel conflicted. Anyhow, requisite "I'm posting in the screenshot thread so here are some screenshots." More from Star Citizen, again taken from those posted in the SC thread.

    The holo-interface.

    Vanity.

    Trying to spoil Blood Dragon would be like trying to spoil Schwarzeneggar's Commando. Guess what? He kills everyone and wins in the end. Sure didn't see that coming.

    Sorry but there is no way you saw the ending in the last picture, with everything that went with it, coming. Or the level before. They're both very 80's sure but they're not 80's Under Siege machisma like the rest of the game, I'd definitely consider them spoilers

    I said it was a big spoiler of one of the coolest things in the game. You obviously thought it was cool enough to take a picture (I did the same) and I'm guessing like me, that was the first time you saw it.

    Now, what made it better. The scene it was in and seeing it first hand, first time yourself, or seeing it on a message board and then playing the game and coming across it and saying "oh yeah, so that's where this is from" ?

    That's why it's a spoiler.

    Same with the level before it like Sonson said. Unless you had prior knowledge going into it, you did not see that coming.
