Hitman.

Tried to find a decent AA solution, FXAA was very ineffective and lots of MSAA kills the performance. So here's some mixing and matching of AA while still maintaining 60FPS.

Yeah, I did like Blood Money.

I don't want you to put too much into what I have to say, as I've done like 3 missions and my primary goal was checking out how it looked, meaning I may not have been going all Hitman on it. However, you can already see the more confined gameplay compared to the previous games. It definitely feels less free and like you always know where to go - In the other games you could wander around a big ass hotel for an hour, checking out target routes and routines. Now it all seems very OH CUT THE POWER, MOVE INTO THE HOUSE HE'S GUARDING, OHHH A SNIPER RIFLE OUT OF NOWHERE HOW CONVENIENT.

But it's not bad, you get to do all the Hitman stuff of being badass sneaky, hiding bodies, figuring out the best way to get rid of a target without alerting everyone around you etc. but the big freedom aspect has been toned down quite a bit. You can still roam around a level, check out your options and take it slow but that free feeling of wandering around a big location as a 'regular' guy is now replaced with more confined spaces and being a wanted man, so you feel very restrained in your movement.

It's a good game, best looking game this generation without modding, shooting feels great and I love the ragdoll. Lots of atmosphere and sweet kills but just have to come to terms with the new style of play.

So a true Hitman game it isn't, for me. However it's a tight, fun and good looking experience with Hitman elements. Still, it also has some severe 'dumbing down' in terms of boxes and cupboards to hide bodies always seem extremely appropriately placed right next to key guards, stuff like that. In the other games I could be dragging a corpse through an entire compound looking dodgy as hell in an attempt to find a good hiding spot.

I've asked on Guru3D to no avail but do any of you know how i can get downsmapled resolution to appear in game? I can get my monitor (U2711) to do 3840*2160/2880*1620 @ 30Hz fine in Windows/desktop but the option isn't there in games.

Any ideas?

What video card and driver version do you have? I just tried playing with most of the CCC settings for my 5850, but forcing anti-aliasing looks terrible compared to letting the ingame 8xMSAA take over, and choosing supersampling over adaptive AA did not seem to make much of a difference. I feel like my game is still slightly blurrier, especially in the backgrounds, than yours, and the foreground is very slightly aliased more.

Sorry =P, almost every single square foot of Boston and New York looks the same, so boring posting that =(

Hitman Absolution, fuck the haters (edit: aka the reviews), game's not bad! (and even if it was I'd probably play it for the visuals -__-)

Man, I fucking love how Mafia 2 eclipses pretty much every fucking game in this thread, save for pCARS and *maybe* Hitman. Quality art direction right there.

Anything special about your settings for Mafia 2, scitek? Or just vanilla with some nVidia-only AA that I could only dream of utilising?

Hey, I use the latest ( -831 dirty ) version but ever since reinstalling dolphin I haven't been able to get the ~99% perfect peformance I used to have in the galaxy games... been tweaking and changing settings for the past week but nothing I use works well so I'm guessing I either need to go back to an old revision or that I erroneously remember my smg 1 performance, smg 2 was near flawless. I guess what I'm trying to say is that my settings and configs are useless as the performance isn't perfect, which it HAS to be with smg and LLE otherwise you're just listening to a choppy mess of a soundtrack.

I'm always tweaking my settings. :) Sometimes I just get tired of one particular look so I mix things up for the sake of variety. There's a combination of other things that help, too - Arenanet fixed the FOV (no longer so tight), plus Nvidia added built-in negative LOD bias for SGSSAA. And then I added lumasharpen on top of that. (I'm also using driver FXAA, but that doesn't show up in screenshots - probably for the better.)

And yeah... Mafia 2 looks insane. Have to admit, though, Sleeping Dogs can get pretty darn close in visual splendor.

Edit: Some Assassin's Creed 3, messing with SweetFX trying to make the game look more interesting. Surprisingly difficult (any increase in vibrancy or saturation just seems to make skin tones go haywire).

Just bought The Walking Dead game today. I really shouldn't have visited this thread.

I'm not super sensitive about spoilers, but shouldn't the image above at least be a link for now? There's probably a couple of people like myself who waited for the full release and i'm guessing that image is from very late on.

I usually dont like SweetFX but I really enjoy it in this game.
(my settings are a little dark sometimes but I think it fits the game very well)
Also discovered that the new RadeonPRO is awesome. Finally something with the basic options of nvidea-inspector for us AMD users.

This thread is like a PC game spoilers thread.

When a new game is released, it seems to be a race as to who can post the biggest spoilers as fast a possible.
I came to terms with this a long time ago.....I still find myself getting fucked when I pop back in.

I try to wait atleast a week before posting any shots from mid-late into any game thats just been released.

I actually came in here to see if there was any good Hitman shots, left with Walking Dead and Assassins Creed spoilers.
:(

I also thought we could implement a sorta of cool down period for new releases in this thread.
e.g Wait atleast a week before posting true spoilers, and if for some explicit reason spoilers NEED to be posted they should be links, but then again too many rules will fuck up the flow of things.
People get excited when they get new games.
