These shots look too good. Bullshots?

There's still plenty of temporal artifacts and jaggies in them. The resolution definitely looks like a boost over their previous screenshot releases though and these are PNG captures. I'm pretty sure they're not bullshots.

Looks like shitty LOD is here to stay but whatever, I'm staying hyped. The scale and beauty of the art style is just nuts.

I'm one of the very few who actually enjoyed the tech demo, so I doubt I'd have problems enjoying the full game.

Nice screens.
The E3 trailer seems much more polished and smooth than the last demo though.

And just like before they look like they are screenshots from a video, resulting in very bad IQ.

Why do they do this?

I do not, for the life of me, understand why they show off pretty good screenshots, a decent trailer, and other shit like the movie trailer and more gameplay, AFTER showing off that insanely crummy demo at the xbox conference.

Why do they keep this shit in the back pocket?

Seeing horizon's screens in the other thread before this makes them look even worse than they should lol.

Wow. Those look pretty bad. It's like someone randomly tapped the screenshot button then chose the worst ones.

Who approves these screenshots? They must really hate this game

Passive aggressive PR person?

'Sure, I'll release some hand picked shots that make the game look great, but you kept stealing my lunch so I'm going to sneak in a few that show horrendous LoD and textures. I don't even have to sneak in the screwed up looking hair!'

They took too long. Game used to be among the best looking upcoming games, but now, Horizon, Death Stranding, Battlefield 1, and Spider-Man are making it look very very dated.

You know, in stills the game looks fantastic but during gameplay, sometimes it looks like a hot mess. I don't mean from a graphical fidelity POV, I'm talking about from a play control standpoint. I watched the live demo they did during the Xbox presser and even a guy who I assume is working on the game seemed to be struggling. The camera was all over the place, gave him lousy vantage points of what he had to hit, all the while, the Titan was mopping the floor with him.

Did anyone else get the impression?

Are they ever going to show more areas? Are there more?

I've seen this one city which seems to be a story instance, this damn forest/lake/slight desert and thats it for the last 2 years. Common SE.

Everyone thought that MS stage demo with Titan looked like shit.

I think a problem is how they've put all the PS4 / XB1 juice to foreground graphics and lighting, so they have to make the background more low-key which is worst in screenshots.

Might not be such a big deal during gameplay, but yeah.

They took too long. Game used to be among the best looking upcoming games, but now, Horizon, Death Stranding, Battlefield 1, and Spider-Man are making it look very very dated.

That's reaching a bit, considering we haven't seen even a second of gameplay footage.

I don't care what anyone says I'm going to pick this up day one.

I've been dying to play a new Final Fantasy game. I don't mind if the graphics and combat system aren't perfect. I like the overall design of the world, and the characters are growing on me.

I'm ready for it.

I'm getting more and more worried and annoyed of FFXV looking and perfoming worse everytime we see it and the closer it comes to it's release. I thought the image quality in Duscae was bad but comparing it to the Platinum Demo it looked much cleaner and softer. By now the game looks much too sharp and artifacted and the hair looks outright ugly.



Why would you put 20.000 polygons (more than one character in XIII had) into hair when the extreme dithering/aliasing does make it look much worse than what we got to see in earlier less graphically advanced games? Give me less polygons and detail but maybe some good old alpha textures and I'm good.
Also, why would you release screens like this?



Doesn't Square Enix and their marketing team have some quality control of what they put out and what better not? The IQ, the textures the LOD, everything here looks horrible, really horrible.

Most of those screenshots are great. One of those screenshots has to be something someone accidentally put in the wrong folder or something.
