If my X1X can run blight town at a locked 60fps then this is worth it.

Seen it running, not a massive improvement so may cancel my preorder and hold off

Something is definitely wrong with the lighting and textures in the remaster

Well it's already confirmed some Chinese company is doing the switch port, and not Bamco. So that's a bad sign to begin with.

Also Vaati just tweeted that the game won't be using the DS3 engine or assets. That pretty means this will be just an up-res port of the PC version. Also explains why PC owners of PTD edition are getting it for half price.

The only thing I was excited about was the idea this was going to be a full on remake and use the DS3 engine and assets. Hype officially deflated.

If it's a decent port to Switch I'll get it even if it's 'just' a port. It's a great game and it'll be fun to finally play it 'properly' with online features, which didn't work properly for me on PC for whatever reason.

EDIT: Also that GIF is great :lol:

:lol: this gooseberry fool reminds me of the original Resident evil 4 port for PC. Sure, you can play it in higher resolutions but they've pretty much removed the aesthetic of the original game in the process by most likely simply omitting finely tuned graphical effects like lighting in favour of global illumination and a bit of ambient occlusion that basically requires no human input, making everything appear flat. Good job.

It's hillarious that user hacks like dsfix and post processing like supersampling still do a better job than an official re release years later.

DSfix was out within hours of the original PC release. Can't believe how lazy that port was, I think it was locked at 720p 30fps with a bunch of effects missing or something daft like that.

I'll say it again, to be called a remaster a game should have to go through some sort of certification procedure. PORTING a game and unlocking the frame rate isn't remastering it.

According to that DF vid it's an upscaled port with minor lighting and texture changes. Was going to plump for the Switch version but I want to see how the framerate holds up. In the meantime, I'm back on the Prepare to Die version with DSfix.

This is going to be like Dark Souls 2 on Xbox One/PS4, in that it'll be the same but run at 60fps. The difference is DS2 wasn't called a remaster.

I never played the original so I'm not too fussed about the (lack of) improvements. Starting to set my mind that I'd like to get the PS4 version.

if youve never played the original this looks (so far) like a great option. its a shame for people who already own it though (especially the PC users).

I will probably still buy this regardless, it still a game I would have some time for. I haven't tried sorcery or other builds.

It is a bit misleading though.

Even when jawa4 gets a good game he buys the wrong version.
