          Did you actually check the fps or go by feeling? If it's the latter it's worthless. If you checked the fps did you actually check the same location the benchmarker did? There will always be some disparity, benchmarks are meant to be comparative between cards. When RTX 4090 gets 100fps and 4070 gets 50fps, your takeaway is that 4090 is 2x 4070 and not that the game maintains perfect 100fps everywhere without ever going higher or lower.
          Another thing is that these are AMDUnboxed results, they are always iffy and Steve is techlet who doesn't understand memory so he always massively gimps his systems CPU wise. For example he tests 7800X3D with 6000MT/s memory which is fine because it's the highest it supports but then "for parity" he uses the same memory on the 14900K even if it can much higher like 7200MT/s+. Their monitor HDR tests are also really bad, they do basic EOTF tracking tests but never test actual Dolby, HDR10 and HGIG content. They straight up recommend HGIG with 400 nits peak brightness as "the best mode" even though it has horrible clipping with any HDR10 game mastered for 1000 nits. They never mention this because these people don't play games or have the technical know-how, they just batch automate the benchmarks, make graphs with the numbers it spits out and call it a day.

      I'd like to hope Starfield made people no longer find Todd lying to be cute and charming. But I expect the fallout show (and some quickly rushed out fallout game in the next 5 years) will bring him back into their good graces. All I wanted was for starfield to be the basic b***h mid Bethesda experience. Where it's shallow but at least 'enjoyable'. It wasn't even that.

        Todd is right in saying that Starfield is just too different, in fact all their games are too different from the current mainstream and people really don't like that they decided to stick to their guns instead of chasing trends. An older IP like TES and Fallout has the brand name to make it popular but Starfield is its own thing and npcs hate when that happens.

      Todd is a hype man trying to sell his product but he hasn't actually lied about what's in the game since like Oblivion when shadows and radiant AI got paired back to run on consoles.

      The people who insist Todd lies are literally too stupid to think clearly, they react based on their emotions instead of trying to parse what's being said. They are the definition of an NPC-brain.

      >See that mountain, you can climb it
      Not only is "climb" a synonym for "strenuous hike" in this context, but the real kicker is the actual quote is:
      >See that mountain, you can walk all the way to the top of it
      and the top quote is a journalist paraphrasing.

      And it's the same thing for literally everything in the lie compilation videos. Just bullshitters uncritically accepting anything they've heard without going to the source for the real quote and context.

              Go into the game files, the wiki or whatever other source you want. Even if you count every single possible permutation you won't be able to go as high as 200. Fallout 3 doesn't have that many endings no matter how you turn it around.

                That's 216 possibilities. I'm sorry, I was originally throwing in the race/gender variations originally but the story endings still maths out to over 200.

                Incorrect. Your calculation includes impossible combinations of project purity not being blown up but the last segment not being included as if the purifier was blown up.
                The last two segments have 2 * 3 combinations if the purifier wasn't blown up and only one if it was. So the actual number is 3 * 6 * (2 * 3 + 1) = 126.

              Neither do you, the endings have fixed order so it's combinations, not permutations. 3 variations for karma, 5 for side quests, 3 for the control room choice (6 with broken steel), 3 for the fev choice. That's 3*5*3*3 = 135 "endings" (270 with broken steel). Even Fallout 1 had 1,440.
              And even if you count different pictures based on the gender and race you'd still have just over four thousands "endings", far from 300,000.

                as one obvious example, I won't bother looking through all of it but pretty much every webm in this thread has also been reposted innumerable times before by the same poster. Another brand of repetitive copypasting is

                [...]
                SSSSAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRR

                and I don't see why someone would object to that being called out as repetitive shitposting unless they're the ones doing it begin with.
                As for posts that aren't literally copypasted, they're derived from the same repetitive shitposts from people who clearly don't know better and can only parrot similarly idiotic, ignorant takes.

            Gravity is a huge factor in the gameplay that is always relevant since it forces you to change your approach and how you use jetpack jumps in fights, it's hilarious that you gays try to brush that off while trying to hype up cosmetic bullshit like "it needed more blood" as important, it's ridiculously superficial because you only have a very superficial view of the game.

              every combat encounter is the same. no matter the gravity.
              The only difference that is actually nice is when you knock out the grav drive on a ship. shame they couldn't be arsed to make more than like 5 different lego style interiors for ships so that gets old after raiding three or four ships
              it also absolutely needed fallout style blood and gore. god bethesda are lazy morons

                My problem with the combat is that the more varied alien beasts are basically never relevant, every thing of actual interest is filled with humans and they could have spent more time making more human variants too. The gunplay feels solid and there's some good weapon variety but the game spams the generic weapons at you and is stingy with the cooler ones. Enemy reactions to damage are cool and make them feel alive, that's an improvement over them exploding into gibs every time but they could have made with both.
                That's a common trend with everything in the game, the content and mechanics are there but how much you see is not balanced, POIs have the same issue where they're vastly overrepresented in the UI pushing you to explore them despite that having less variety than other parts of the game. You have to go out of your way to ignore what the game presents to find the hidden gems underneath.

        There are things that dynamically change gravity too and the AI has to play well with that assumption which is easier said than done, it's not really an amazing technical feat that needs to be optimized for though, it's just a neat thing that plays well with the mechanics and fun fluff like seeing items floating around.

        no it doesnt you mega homosexual lol it barely changes everything and you can jump huge with the jet pack either way

        I think the highest gravity planets peak at about 2.1G, with the lowest at 0.02G or so, it varies between being able to fly indefinitely to being almost grounded. It would be fun if NPCs jumped around too depending on the gravity but I can imagine the nightmare that the navigation code would be.

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Gravity also changes things like O2 consumption, they also played with the concept of inventory weight changing depending on the gravity but I think it's set to nothing or almost nothing by default.
          The game never tells you but all planets follow orbital paths and the sky is generated in real time based on your actual location but these clever systems are just there as background factoids.
          Starfield has lots of neat understated systems and details like that but they decided to normalize things a lot and focus on the more traditional gameplay instead which is a shame, you can see there were devs who had the freedom to implement big ideas but no room to really bring them forward.

      Nothing about the larger society makes sense and the game seems perfectly fine with not explaining shit. Now I don't need stuff to be to literal scale but with this realistic aesthetic and ""nasapunk"" it's really hard to meet them half way. Yeah, New Vegas is the size of a dog park but we know it's based on a real place so you can just play along. With Starfield I really don't know if the world is meant to be literal but I do kinda think it is?

That's why I end up thinking what it looks like is what it's supposed to be.

            Nothing in FNV suggests that you are supposed to extrapolate either, in fact it's even more off-putting because the city is hyped up throughout the entire first half of the game and reaching it is a massive disappointment because you're led to believe that it's relatively more important than the countryside.
            You're using very vague and abstract meanings that only make sense to you personally because you have a bias.

              It's a much older game and the game takes place in literal Las Vegas. See, I really don't ask for much. Just give me a fake skyline and some NPC saying "yeah tonnes of people live here" that's fine. But if you make the city small and you can just walk around it to double check that it's literally all there is then I don't know what to think.

      The reason for that is because of their housing policies. Becoming a New Atlantis resident requires obtaining a citizenship which is not bestowed upon people immediately, not even by birthright. It normally takes a minimum of 10 years of processing to get someone in, and even then, people are not guaranteed to get a home topside, they may have to live in The Well instead. As you can imagine, people will likely just end up living in other cities or on a ship instead, few would take a chance of making their own planetside settlement because of all the dangerous fauna and Pirates, Spacers and Ecliptics shitting things up.

              Why would a city intentionally designed as one of those utopian meme pics have cars? You're reaching so hard it's weird.
              Yes it's obvious the game won't simulate millions of people and that's a ridiculous unreachable standard, it speaks nothing of the game itself. The spaceport area alone is bigger than the entirety of Whiterun and any bigger than that would make it a massive slog to walk through, think for a second. Bethesda stopped doing large scale towns after Daggerfall's copypasted nonsense because it's simply not conductive to good gameplay.

    I'm not going to defend Starfield because it's a shit game, but... He didn't say graphics card, he said you should upgrade your PC.
    Because people have been brainwashed by Nvidia, they think that a graphics card is the only important for vidya, completely missing that games like Bethesda's are often very CPU intensive since they have to simulate all the NPCs and physics objects.

          I played it for about 100 hours which is longer than I've spent with any other Bethesda game that isn't heavily modded and I'll surely play hundreds more hours once it's matured.
          Let out your gasps and clutch your pearls when I tell you it's actually the best vanilla Bethesda release ever if you play it eagerly instead of letting yourself be poisoned by eceleb and shitposters dictating your thoughts, especially since the game relies very little on trailer moments and more on giving back to players with patience and interest. The fact that people only talk about New Atlantis in these threads is proof of how superficial the average anon is since the city is superficial by design.

            because it's dumb slop with no exploration, awful writing and a shitty attitude that takes itself very seriously and tries to be profound. it's not a good shooter, it's flat out not an RPG and the world and setting is bland and generic. they sold the idea of an immersive space sim where you can "roleplay" as whatever you want but really the "roleplaying" in the game amounts to basically "i want to pretend to be a space trucker" so you click through a menu to add cargo to your ship then you select the planet you want to deliver it to, instantly teleport there, and the cargo is instantly teleported off of your truck. it's as deep as a thimble. and it also looks like shit too, outside of the very first location in the mine

            Honestly I fricking hate that city because it feels very underdeveloped compared to the rest of the game and it showcases the weakest aspects and it's also the first place you are led to, I think it's one of the oldest things they worked on and it shows. The ships and random town interiors look stunning in comparison.

            >it's characters that absolutely awful
            I fricking hate movie games for this shit. Basically, this is one of the single biggest contributors to exploding development costs. Convincing human renders are an order of magnitude harder than everything else because our brains are wired to pay special attention to it. The studios that get it looking nice do so by paying out the nose for motion capture and then have additional animators painstakingly work over the captures. There's no magic tech. It's a totally non-scalable process that absolutely eats money and manpower.

            But because a few studios like Naughty Dog and Rockstar pay those exorbitant costs, player expectations are perma-fricked and it's wrecking havoc on any dev without the name brand to meet the sales necessary to cover those costs.

            The reason Bethesda NPCs look robotic is because they nope out of all that shit and use a library of animation templates for every NPC instead of individual motion captures. The very opening of Starfield is motion captured just to prove they can do it, but everything afterwards is using templates.

The reality is for as much as companies virtue signal about diversity, the engineering teams are just as white and Asian as you'd expect. Companies aren't passing over genuinely smart talent for diversity initiatives. If you lose your spot to a diversity hire it's because you were a coin flip candidate anyway.

                who convinced themselves merit-based hiring doesn't exist because otherwise they'd have to own up to the fact that they're not as smart as they think they are. The whole "DEI hire" is just "white man keeping me down" in reverse. Whenever mediocre people fail to achieve their ambitions they go into maximum ego-protection mode and convince themselves the system is against them.

    Todd Coward the Liar hasn't put out anything resembling a genuinely good game, that can stand on its own merits and measure up to its predecessors, in almost 20 years, yet there were endless copium-huffing, fake hype shill threads up around the clock in the weeks leading up to Starfield, and it will undoubtedly be the same for TES6. And just like back in Skyrim release days, those threads will immediately die and fizzle out in shame when the realization sinks in that the game isn't even a shadow of the game that was promised.
