Tbh some of the dinosaurs look horrible and way too busy in their designs.
This elephant one looks like it was designed by a toddler with crayons, it's so cluttered.

It looks like someone vomited on screen.

You can always have generic designs on other games, this is what makes Horizon unique. Most of the parts you see can be stripped by tactically hitting them to expose weakpoints. One of the best gameplay mechanics out there.

But hey, enjoy other generic games.

Those are called details, with most of the parts being separate pieces that can be stripped off, but sure ...

TBH I am very surprised that this game isn't making use of the Strand System designed by Kojima in Death Stranding.

I mean, wouldn't it be cool to summon in supplies or use other people's grappling hooks around the world similar to the ladders and stuff in Death Stranding?

Can't see that working, it fits Death Stranding only.

Given the time frame, wouldn't it make WAY more sense to release this game, then make another Killzone?
Yup, ultimate logic, without mentioning that Horizon is a better overall franchise and most beloved.

But here you're talking about Grubb Jeff, someone that can't use his brain (or don't want to use his brain? who knows)

I find this funny, really. I'm a man and my eyebrows are kinda close to the ones in the game. I don't even use cream or any body lotion to bother with eyebrows. :lollipop_tears_of_joy:

The video is amazing, but is that a girl, trans, or wtf? Looks somehow like a female, sounds deep like a male?

So this xbox fanboy hater guy started to show his true face

Christ. Killzone is honestly dead in the water after shadow fall. maybe Killzone 2 could get remade? If they are gonna go back to a shooter (I thought they had an MP one in development) i doubt it'll be under the Killzone franchise.

If only they had been able to keep Guerrilla Cambridge and let them have that franchise; their Killzone Mercenary on Vita was the best of the franchise IMO.


It's fun to go back to these environs of the pre-show now that they're not compressed to hell, to see what was supposed to be exciting to look at before Youtube ate the vista's heart out.

Complaining about too many details. Oof now I've heard it all. Maybe go play some Atari games instead then. The new dinos look goddamn amazing.
Over-design is a perfectly understandable critique tho.

It's just a matter of taste, some people prefer a cleaner design with less stuff going on in the models.

At first I rolled my eyes at your post, then I clicked on the link and was like "oh.....I see what he means". I think it's pretty clear, but I don't want to be rude if I'm wrong.

Some people just kinda have their eyebrows close to that. I think it's not something crazy it's just too much nitpicking at this point.

Ok is it a he or a she now? I'm settling for male trans so far, the voice is kinda exposes that. :lollipop_anguish:

Ok so I'm not the only one seeing it.

Anyways I don't think it's a big deal but it sort of stands out.

Yeah it's not a big deal to me either, but it threw me off. I was thinking there was sometime of dubbing happen because the person didn't speak English or something. But then I saw the lips synced up to the voice talking so that wasn't it.

According to this developer's technical analysis, which uses its own AIDA (Artificial Intelligence Detailed Analysis):
Link to AIDA images in video description

Much more realistic motion caption (many more polygons in the 3D mesh)
Too much use of a possible type of Temporal Anti-Aliasing Upsample (TAAU), is one of several dynamic resolution techniques
Extremely high color level and lot of illuminance, game probably has excellent HDR
Lots of excellent quality lighting
Resolution quality dropped for a few milliseconds and returned to normal, some kind of temporal reconstruction or some technology similar to sampler feedback streaming (speculation)

Highly colored images, color and white images, as well as black and white images, display light sources and levels

Direct lighting on characters' faces = Iluminação direta no rosto dos personagens

I think there will be a lot of cutbacks besides just resolution. Her character model looks CG quality. It's not just the hair, it's the lighting as well. Will their upgraded Decima engine get this lighting on PS4? I guess we will find out come launch.


Can the PS4 GPU let paired with a shitty Jaguar CPU even render these fish let alone manage their A.I routines?


What about this destruction?



It's doing a lot of things we just havent seen this gen. And all of this on top of visuals that are in a league of their own even if they arent a generational leap.
That destruction as you put it is not impressive, all the debris disappears almost instantly. The hyperbole around this game is getting ridiculous, this game is doing nothing we haven't seen before. Even the charactor models are nothing special in fact they're not as good as TLOU2 in terms of animation. The water looks very nice but with lots of vegetation etc. The lighting model is a regular GI solution the likes of which we have in almost every open world game. It's coming to PS4 it will be fundamentally the same game at a lower resolution and less environmental detail but that's all.

And still somehow the best-looking game post-E3. The complaints ring so fucking hollow when E3 came and went, and nothing in this style even came close. I'm sure someone will point to Avatar, but then completely ignore that it was nowhere near playable, and claims of being realtime are dubious at best.

You said this about HFW:
it will be fundamentally the same game at a lower resolution and less environmental detail but that's all.

But you've said this about FH5:
It's definitely the best looking game we've seen so far, unless Hellblade 2 is real footage. People tend to dismiss racing games generally because it's just cars, but there's no other game that is like Horizon. Full open world, dynamic weather system (sand storms are now in), dynamic time of day, deformable vegetation and destructible scenery (fences etc). Its just a technical marvel and I'm looking forward to hearing from PG tomorrow.

No one takes you seriously. Why even bother trolling this shit? That was just one random post I found on the first page of the latest FH5 thread. Your post history is guaran-damn-teed to be riddled with similar levels of inconsistencies. Give it a rest.

Yes. Avatar makes this game look cross gen.

Always appreciate a fan highlighting my posts 👍 Another fanboy doesn't like the hard cold facts, what a shock! 😁 Let's see some of these inconsistencies then Mr. High Almighty? Otherwise have a coke and a smile 😉
