Fuck off, leftist.
have a nice day, retard.
monster hunter and ff14 have incredible looking food
We don't talk about the dango. Don't know how I'm supposed to believe that that feeds a hunter. World and before, on the other hand, made feasts.
Yeah bro I sure loved fondue and nondescript meats
Damn straight you do
>You just get to take a bath and have a fancy drink
itchy nose has an indescribable hatred for healthy hearty whole meals
>Nooo why every game isn't catering to sharts and puts mountains of food enough to feed a normal human for like a month
>Coming off work
>Started playing MH in 2013 or so
>All those big feasts the hunter would eat before a hunt
>Followed suit and brought a bunch of meat or fish and ate with impunity after a long shift
Fuck I wanna go back
Does this game series have good nudes in general
There are no nudes in game.
You eat other food, there's food markets and stands all around in each hub. The Dango also clearly doesn't fill you up as much but does provide better mix and match Skill benefits, it's why you don't get max HP and Stam.
Dango is a joke.
Rise is a spinoff. Not a real Monster Hunter game
>Bing Bing Wahoo Hunter
We're talking about actual semi-modern games, Anon.
So about rise because w*rld is shitty goyslop make to knock some money off retarded westoid trannies like you
Tendy, I get your game this month, and I'm not even going to bother with it. 4U was good on the 3DS almost a decade ago, but times have moved on without you. Don't settle for scraps.
>snoyboy and sour grapes
Every time lmao don't you have more chud movieslop to consoom? Just think of these 12 gaas games in development one definitely will be monster slop 2 and feature hamgalaxy chud handler
Sour grapes implies I can't get it, Anon. Rise literally comes out this month.
It came out on real platforms a long time ago and you still seethe and sour grape over it lmao
>MH Rise losing players now that the new DLC is done and over with
>MH World gaining them like crazy despite being almost half a decade old and not having any new content since 2019
>trannies got filtered and went back to piss easy chud game to erp
figures, stay there
I think dangos are my favorite food system with the hopping skewers, but i hate how the game constantly tries to shove it down as the best food ever.
Dango was one of the main downgrades
along with everything else about the game
thats a shitload of baked beans.
What game is this from?
Monster Hunter World
>all of the food has cat hair in it
I shouldnt be hackin up a hairball by the end of the meal, thats fucking gross
ff14 can sugma
turd buns are awesome for absolute shiteaters "playing" xiv
left has more soul
Shitty games still exist. Soul doesn't equal good or even progress. It just people who like something shitty because they grew bias to it. Do play an indie horror PS1 looking trash if you want your "soul" but most people want actual fun games.
dont care still prefer left
left looks closer to how macdonkey's looks in real life
left is american mcdonkey, right is japanese mcdonkey
FFXV has the best looking food in history of vidya.
if only the game was good
too bad the game is fucking garbage
You guys are just playing the game wrong. FFXIV is a fishing game.
That's every Japanese game
Is the fishing actually good/fun? Might install it finally and just ignore the furries/trannies/pedos/fags/fujos/garden gnomes/autists/simps/erpscum etc if the fishing is good
Can I play the whole fishing minigame with the free level 60 thing?
As a fellow fisherman yeah it's pretty good and fun. Better than most fishing games I've played but I guess that's not saying much.
Play BoF3 if you want a good fishing mini game
>want to fish in FFXV
>find a nice cozy spot
>TURN THE ROD TOWARD THE FISH
>TURN THE ROD
Guys shut the FUCK up while I'm fishing.
You're thinking of XIV not XV.
>Can I play the whole fishing minigame with the free level 60 thing?
There is an assload you can do with just the free trial when it comes to fishing, but there are a bunch of useful abilities you won't have which can make your life a lot easier when you are getting into ocean fishing or trying to hunt big fish.
You will also be unable to access rewards and achievements that are gated behind post-heavenward expansion content.
Man, MMO's must be a real struggle for you.
Either that or Dragon's Crown though that's from a strictly good looking standpoint as opposed to realism.
Okay but everything looks fucking amazing in Dragons Crown
>looks fucking amazing
Ugly as shit*
Can't go wrong with meat on a bone
Doesn’t count. They scanned real plates of food.
It’s like saying max payne has the most realistic looking face.
Modern AAA scan faces all the time.
>The man who goes nuclear on bands, mafias and even multibillion military pharmacy corporation over his dead wife and child has shit eating grin through the entire game
Come on, you could do better
Still a fucking model in-game, of course it counts, you guys are fucking retarded
Nobody is stopping other developers from doing the same, altough american developers may have trouble finding good looking food.
Or its like saying L.A Noire has the most realistic looking faces.
Never played a Vanillaware game, have you?
The one time in history lunches were written off as a business expense and it was actually legitimate.
fuck yeah it did
Hate to nitpick this, but the texture mapping on the crust is really bad.
much like you're posting
Fuck you, anon. Can't unsee.
Yeah, they did the seem cut around the middle of the face instead of one of the beveled edges. Shame.
I'm still hungry though.
you're not supposed to eat the crust anyway
>you're not supposed to eat the crust
autistic retard detected.
I texture mapped your mom last night
That version of the toast was from the demo where the food was a still image
In the final game the food are all models all physically there and it also looks improved since the 3 foods the demo had only in still image form.
Beautifully recreated food to add to the atmosphere and make things comfy
We were denied this.
Garbage looking food yet constant food "humor" because the writers room is mostly women
Show me good Japanese food humor
>Show me good Japanese food humor
No such thing as good food humor so they don't do it
Boot up western game: "TACOS TUESDAYS AND MIMOSAS AND SIRRACHA SAUCE"
Just fuck a man at that point
I think it is a man?
there are clearly tits there even if the shirt hides them a little
its clearly just a basic white girl with an ugly haircut
That's a generic city girl trying as hard as she can to get attention, you know what women always do
no androgynous women are super hot
That's the same person from a different angle
Why are American tomboys so hot?
If it was American it would be a 400 lbs chud
Cope europoor. We have the best food and the hottest women.
No such thing as good Japanese humor full stop. Probably the dullest people on earth
The food in that game looked disturbingly delicious.
It really helped add to the feeling of wanting to visit the game's locations in real life. Experience the sights and smells, eat the food.
Is the restaurant on the water in Altissia based on a real place?
If only there were literally any reason to eat it.
Pretty sure there were specific buffs to each of the plates.
Nah, that would be vanillaware games, which not only has nicer looking food, but also isn't just photographs of food slapped on a 3D model.
ehh maybe for a 3D game. Odin's Sphere has much better looking food.
My favorite chicken tenders are made at this burger/bar in my state.
Kinda expensive but it’s worth it SO much
I like how they always hide the shitty noodles with toppings, trying to make it look better than what you actually get.
NEO TWEWY has some great looking food too.
Is it a mini-slider? Like the patties are the size of a coin?
Bro, 450 cal is 2000 kJ; this is perfectly normal for a double cheeseburger
Dreams beats it.
post your national breakfast food
not him but
and i guess omelettes
>we heard you were talking shit
if you eat bougatsa every day you are fat.
FUCKING MPOUGATSES, TAKE ME BACK HOME, I NEED THEM ALL, SWEET SALTY
I got nothing else to be fair. I don't have sex so I might as well get fat with tasty foods.
Not only is it good in the morning, it's also good for the rest of the day, a satisfying all rounder for any time.
do people really have traditional breakfast dishes? I think it's just coffee here and whatever else you want, like juice, sweet sandwiches, cheese, eggs, pancakes or crepes if you're feeling fancy. The only one that seems "traditional" is dipping bread (usually baguettes) in a plate that has fresh olive oil and honey (
>its time to show the rest of the world the superiority of Turkish cuisine
all memeing aside every "breakfast" ive had in Europe was shit, especially Greece
Everything in the fridge
If you hard manual labour, which most of the British did up until recently, a full English will set you up for the day. No time for lunch as this is before lunch breaks became mandatory, you don't want some pissant corn meal you'll be falling over by 10am.
that's cool it doesn't change teh fact that the food is shit.
What exactly is the problem with eggs, sausage, roast tomato, and beans? Can you articulate it beyond “lol british food” memes?
The three things I'll always remember about XV.
>how good the food looked
>how good the hair looked
>how terrible the game was
They put more effort to food than it's story content
You guys are just playing the game wrong. FFXIV is a fishing game.
Which fucking game are you talking about now.
That katsu sauce looks like rancid marinara.
Shame the game is garbage
It had a lot of good ideas but it was kind of thrown together in a weird mess.
This is what happens when a game goes through development hell. Ace Combat 7 is similar (but obviously not as bad).
they spend all the budget and focus on food and 1% on gameplay and story
>they spend all the budget and focus on food and 1% on gameplay and story
agreed, the XV team needed different priorities
It's not even animated like World food.
FUCK OFF BARRY
Good looking food doesn't save your shit game
Feed Mii for the 3DS has amazing food.
So does Pikmim 3, but that is only fresh fruits.
Pretty much, they outdid themselves
Man, I loved FFXV. I know it gets a lot of shit but I guess starting with the Royal Edition really helped in my case. Love the story (unironically), the characters, the world and the entire atmosphere of the game.
Yeah, battles aren't great, but I didn't play it for that. I was mostly fishing with Noctis.
Is fishing as good or better than Red Dead and Far Cry 5 ?
The fries and onion rings look weird there.
The fries look like apple slices and the onion rings look like cheetos
onion rings shouldn't be rounded
fries should be golden brown, not yellow and orange
i prefer the left, and im not joking, the right looks uncanny valley and makes me nauseous
Left is low-poly version of what they serve you at the fast food place, right is what they show you in the adverts on TV. Left is more realistic.
Imagine how cool a hexagon burger would be
I'm going to start up hexaburger
Hexaburgers are the bestaburgers
We have the technology.
Is there any benefit to this shape? Even if you like the meat to go over the edge why not just make patties square? Same goes for grill space.
why would you not have hexagonal buns for hexagonal burgers you're not making sense anon.
More efficient use of griddle space?
But is the griddle hexagon shaped?
yeah, it allows miniatures to move more freely on it. Perfect for when you enter the meat dimension
I want to try one.
It tastes like hamburger, retard.
Get some help
>burger with apple slices and puffy cheetos rings
>dude just use more polygons than the player models on some random scenery that'll take up 4 pixels on the player's screen
I didn't know Square Enix employees posted on Ganker
Honestly the bun and onion rings aren't bad. The sauce is fucking absurd though.
More modern games should go the ghost ship route
Okay miners, we put shaders and glowy stuff and effects and vibrant colors, but all circles are octogons
You honestly don't need that many polygons to get a good-looking model now that we have normal mapping for shaders
But no amount of technical advancement can fix terrible developers
>over a quarter million tris
wtf, please tell me this isn't for a game
Stranger of Paradise
And that's not even the worst one. This model is 90MB
oh hell no bro wtf. that's that ati radeon boxart shit
Kek what the fuck. Did they forget that 3d asset creation has steps between the high-poly sculpt and putting it in the game?
Future of modern game development, technology like nanite will allow developers to side step mesh optimization.
GPUs are so fast at rasterization these days a few thousand extra triangles doesn't impact performance. You can have millions per frame.
guess thats why ff14 was famous for its shit performance due to background assets before they recoded it.
Better than spamming post processing effects until the game is barely visible
The problem with this is not that there are too many triangles, it's the expensive shaders.
It's called LODs, fucknugget
That was debunked. Yoshi-P is a lying retard, also 1k poly is fucking nothing especially for a game in 2010
I wonder if that's a true 1.0 rip or 1.23 after they already changed a lot of stuff.
It's from the server emulator, so it's the final version of 1.0 after the flowerpot was already changed.
>6 billion polygons on set dressing
>We were denied this.
Because of console users.
>DUDE IF EVERYONE HAD 100,000 DOLLAR NASA COMPUTERS GAMES WOULD LOOK LIKE THIS
Why are you mustard rice gays so far up your own asses?
Funny thing is if you actually push them on it, the majority of mustards are running specs that are weaker than the typical console.
The Xbox/PS5 is weaker than a throttled 1060 and a low end CPU from the mid 2010s.
The majority of PCs have a 1060/2060/3060 card and blows the PS5 out.
Even today, you could buy a budget PC that is better than the current gen consoles at the same price.
And the majority of people are running 7+ year old midrange or low range cards. I hear people talk about still running 970s.
>even today you can build a budget PC that outperforms a console
Not true since at least 2019. A comparable GPU alone is about $350, which is more than half the price of a console. Factor in the CPU, motherboard, and other expensive components and even a comparable PC rapidly approaches $1000. And that’s before you consider things like keyboards and mice. The era of PCs being cheaper than consoles is over.
Bro stop, you're murdering the narrative. God forbid Sony releases a PS5 Pro as well.
>black guy talks shit about WITE PEEPOL cooking despite not having a family of his own to spend thanksgiving with
Did you just schizoconjure some headcanon from this image?
why do black people in these types of settings dress like a gay gameshow host? literally everyone else is dressed like a normal human being
He's the host, racist.
so wear a suit and not liberace's cum rag
>can't have fun when hosting something at your own place
correct. Don't dress like a fucking clown and then ask why people laugh at you.
Stop telling people how they should dress.
He's not the Weeknd, he's the whole Mnth
Because bros be on the downlow. Nothing a moron loves more than man ass. That's why they commit crime so they can get a free ticket to moron disneyland where it's an all you can rape man ass buffet.
>meanwhile ignores guy with pink flowers and trim cut
The larger problem is your sense of style is shit beyond dull/dark colors.
have to appear nonthreatening to the wypipo audience
This looks like the Last Supper for the Anti-Christ
It wasn't Christ's last supper but it was certainly theirs.
That reminds me, it's time to learn about historical table settings because I have autism.
So the common depiction of the Last Supper isn't historically accurate. People did sit at tables that way with everyone to one side, but much later during the medieval and renaissance periods.
The real Last Supper was likely eaten at a U-shaped table, somewhat similar to pic related. That was the style of table seating typical in that period for the Roman Empire. Again, all would have been seated to one side of the table, around the outside edge.
In both cases, people ate on one side of the table to facilitate the servers bringing them food. They wouldn't have to reach other anyone and potentially spill shit on anyone, instead they'd come around the empty side (or the inside of the U table) and bring the diners their food and drinks there.
The takeaway here is that I have too much time on my hands and that we should be doing this now since it's more efficient. We've only been making this harder since the literal fucking dark ages, even they understood this was a better seating arrangement.
what if the middle guy had to piss, smartypants
Just limbo under the table, bro.
We still have that issue, booth tables still exist in places.
Anyway, that pic isn't the one I'd have liked to use, it's just one of the nicer quality ones I'd found. The one I want but can't find anymore had shown a far more severe U-shape of a table in the center of the room. Imagine a large square table but with a "radius" cut out from the center towards one of the outer edges. Like a literal U shape. Server's supposed to walk through that center gap to be able to serve anyone and everyone from the middle of the table.
With that kind of table, you'd be able to get up at will too. The crux of the issue you bring up lies not with the table itself, but with booths in general. You could maybe solve this with a bedpan if you're a barbarian that doesn't care about eating with pissy hands or pissing while eating.
>The takeaway here is that I have too much time on my hands and that we should be doing this now since it's more efficient.
The modern way of sitting on all sides of the table is a reflection of the qualities of our time.
Maximize the number of people per square inch of table space used. This way you can fit more people into the restaurant.
Maximize profits, minimize the costs. Keep doing it until the service is only barely tolerable so that the customers might complain a bit but will still keep coming back.
Technically speaking this table is still more efficient for that purpose, with the added bonus that none of your customers risks getting scalding soup spilled all over their dicks. I think the main reason people don't do this is because the tables might be difficult to set up (even though you could do this with about 3 rectangular ones) or because of plain laziness/complacency (eh, what we're doin' is fine how it is).
thank you, very cool
Np, I always thought it was neat that people actually did sit that way and it wasn't just a creative liberty for the ease of painting. I think it's more than likely that Michelangelo just didn't know that people ate like that back then, because why would he? I didn't know people ate how they did in his time until I read about it and looked into the matter. Just like how he started his career making forgeries of Roman statues, but none of his statues were painted like how the Romans would have done it. For his forgeries that's understandable as him making them seem old and therefore legit, but his own works like David weren't, so I think he also didn't know that they painted them.
commie nonsense, modern seating comes out of the desires of the patrons, who wish to sit close to each other for ease of conversation. no one wants to should across the gap.
Soviet union had factories mass-producing shit too
ah, literal commie nonsense. shut the fuck up, retard.
Holy fuck what a retard. I'm saying that modern commies are just as much about maximizing production (just another way to describe profit) as the capitalists they keep seething about. But your brain already short-circuited so you'll just dismiss my post without even reading it so why bother
>everything is a KKKrapitalist conspiracy!!!!
It’s because the concept of having house servants died out. Families make their own food, place it in the middle of the table, and serve themselves from it. This was the norm for mediaeval peasantry, and now the middle class who have grown from them. Even aristocratic and rich folk no longer have the time or patience for the pomp of housemaids and house servants most of the time.
This was the worst thing I had ever seen.

>Decided to play MH for the first time, starting with the first game. Not sure which that is, but it looks soulful.
There's no reason to do this to yourself btw unless you're curious to what the early games were like, at least start with FU
Just want the full experience where I get to appreciate improvements across the generations.
So, that would be freedom unite and the "ultimate" versions of 3 and 4. You can skip generations. Then you have world and rise, both with continuous maps. All are a good time.
Currently playing the MH Freedom remake of the first game. And yeah, generally going off of the /vg/ general's order.
well fuck you too buddy
You should really listen to the other anon and start with FU or P3rd/Tri, all emulate great and have working multiplayer one way or the other. Tri might still be hot since they recently fixed multiplayer, even adding cross-platform.
>start with shit dead games
This is why no one takes you retards seriously
>anon wants to start with the old games

>bro just waste 8 billion polys and ray tracing on a hamburger
your machine when the games finished pictured to the left
>devs make pic on the left
>WTF why's my framerate tanking? trash devs!
No actually, it shouldn't look like that, and it should be evidenced by the wireframe image you showed. If that food were the only thing in the frame and a focus of the shot, then fine. But the food you show in the left screenshot is a prop in a scene where the food is just a decoration to a larger scene and not the focus of the scene itself, so dedicating that much of the polygon budget to a small side prop would bloat the performance cost, and if you treated every object with the same treatment then the game would be an unoptimized mess.
And sincere laughing at the potato wedges polygon budget. Just count how many points are on it. Over a hundred for something that could look close to identical for so much less?
>buy 4090 just to render food
poorfags wont ever have this
Unironically UE5 Nanite can do this
nanite renders poly count somewhat irrelevant because it can fractalize the whole scene, somewhat like that guy who made his own infinite engine that would render only what you need, but its actually real/doable without a server farm generating the level
Can't wait for this shit to be standard.
SOUNDS LIKE MY WIFE
contains all sustenance required by the human body
Its kind of insane how photorealistic Nintendo can push their 360/ps3 era hardware
it's even worse than that. it's literally a mobile chip.
Would I serve that much food as a meal for like four people, yes
how much cat hair is in it?
I refuse to believe that 0 hair dropped in that food.
Are those cats the size of mice? What the fuck?
Also, looks tasty.
The cats are the size of cats, the meat is just big
No, they're about 3 feet tall
The meat is the size of dinosaurs, anon

Palicos would NEVER

I can hear the music
*SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP*
I fucking love this game, and i fucking love terminal.
oh god how I would
Are you trying to appeal to my stomach or my dick? Because yes
Imagine food cooking cutscenes in MH6's RE engine
that meal would probably take two hours MINIMUM to prepare. by the time it hits your table whatever you're tracking will be long gone
Hell yeah man, that stuff looks amazing. Those feline looking bros look like food is their life
>good looking food
>eating animation is still too simplified
That's what matters more to me.
Looks like they took high res photos of real food then used it as a texture on a 3d model.
Pretty sure they're all 3d scanned
Its just photogrammetry. Go to food stylist studio, have them prep 'food' or you, and then scan it. They use all sorts of tricks to make food look presentable.
>bro just described photoscanning
>thinks he just discovered some "lazy method tehy don't want you to know"
>when that is the ultimate goal with shit like nanite, to just drop dirty photoscans in the game and have raytracing take care of the rest
he just discovered some "lazy method
He did discover that it's some lazy method. None of that shit is animated. It may as well just be a picture of a plate of food.
There's a Japanese youtube channel which calls in random professionals from random industries to look at random video games, like they have architects look at FF7 or a Greek historian look at Fate, there's an episode where they have a nutritionist look at the FFXV food and talk about how good it would be for you.
Is this a good game? does it have fun side activities, crafting, mini games that sort of thing?
Like messing about in the world without following the main story if you want to?
No it's shit
I am getting the demo now. Windows Edition, 32GB lol.
The combat consists of holding O endlessly and the only sidde activity is fishing (which admittedly is pretty good)
>The combat consists of holding O endlessly
Only if you make it like that. Put on the nixperience band to stay at level 1 and use no items, then holding O will pretty much mean instant death.
Would it be better if the game just had a hard mode instead of only easy and normal? Yes, but basically all games have a way to cheese the combat and you can make it harder by artificially limiting yourself.
Shut up Barry. I'm going to play a good game like FFXVI instead.
>dmc5 combat guy
so ff16 is hold to win?
>Only if you make it like that
XV does fucking nothing to motivate you to do more. I beat the entire game with Holding O and item use at 0 HP
>Only if you make it like that
XV does fucking nothing to motivate you to do more. I beat the entire game with Holding O and item use at 0 HP
No you didn't
sbk91 on suicide watch because it mogs your kh garbage
Makes as much sense as saying "the game is good after you mod it", or "this game sucks unless you're playing with a friend".
No because its already good
I do this often. It's fine.
That's not allowed. For the real game, you have to remain at level 1 and use no items.
If Square didn't renege on their promise of releasing a modkit, this would've been implemented as a mod. Instead you just have to have self control and honor.
>That's not allowed. For the real game, you have to remain at level 1 and use no items.
what I see is:
>YOU MUST LIMIT YOURSELF IN ORDER TO TRULY PLAY THE GAME
you sound as bad as the people who go "THE ONLY WAY TO PLAY KH2 CRITICAL MODE IS TO BE AT LEVEL 1"
That must have been boring. I remember using different weapons and warp striking everywhere because otherwise just hitting blindspots got very repetitive. Playing the different characters could be fun, too.
>That must have been boring.
it was but since the devs didn't give a fuck, why should I?
>I remember using different weapons
all they did was change your DPS
>Playing the different characters could be fun, too.
that feature did not exist when I played that garbage. Besides, from research it sounds like they are Hold O with a gimmick
not a challenge after they added the ability for the ring to instantly kill it
>Besides, from research it sounds like they are Hold O with a gimmick
I remember Ignis definitely being a bit more involved than that. Gladio was about parrying at the right time and gunboy was...I don't remember, but boring.
How important is level? Am I fine just continually overlevelling? I played it for 2 hours or so a while ago and was oberleveled after one singular side quest
I think that's just a bit of shitty game design you have to get used to because I remember being monstrously over-levelled too, it just isn't a challenging game.
>it just isn't a challenging game.
XV was designed for casuals, that hack Tabata said so himself
All Final Fantasy games are designed for casuals.
Pretty much any major franchise is.
>Pretty much any major franchise is.
Not Dark Souls.
Dark souls is peak casual franchise
you can cheese anything in any souls game
the fact a woman can beat elden ring with a DDR dance pad means souls games are casual
Game sold like shit actually. It undersold FFXIII until they started putting it on sale for $5 repeatedly to artificially inflate its popularity
Why are you lying retard? XV literally had the highest launch sales in the franchise and has outpaced the sales of every game in the franchise since it sold 10m in 5.5 years while it took ff7 over 10 years and ff10 over 15 years to hit 10m and those are the only ones that hit that
XV also was profitable on day one and sold over 80% of its 10m at full price while around 1m was at near full price while only under 1m was at half price or lower but its lowest regular price is $17
It's literally currently $31 on Amazon and the lowest its ever been on steam is $17n where its mostly at $35-$40 and was $50 when it came to steam with the ardyn dlc $10 so $60 all toghther back when that came out in 2019
No that was a mistranslation from an interview over 2 fucking years before the game released you retard
KH and FF16 now that is for casuals
Yes, all games require you to artificially limit yourself if you want any challenge.
Although good games hide the ability to get upgrades and shit. I remember playing the entirety of Nier Automata's A route not bothering to figure out how to upgrade and it was actually a challenge. Then I found out you could upgrade on the ship and the game became piss easy.
Always limit yourself, because the game won't do it for you.
how's a lvl1 run in FFXV? is there a decent damage floor by default or do I need to rely on gear or food buffs to do any dmg?
I forgot how shit this game was. Can't believe this is the best selling title in the entire series.
from what I understand it sold decently but needed to sell A LOT of copies to make up for all the money spent in the 10 year dev cycle
It didn't remotely make up its cost, they had to recycle its assets into 15 different gacha games and mobile remakes and such in order to recoup it. The game itself sold less than 6 million copies before the price tanked to $20 for a new copy and it only started outpacing other games when they started selling it for $5 with all the DLC included on Steam every other week.
You really need to have a nice day
Here is SE state XV hit 5m on day 1 and is the fastest selling FF game
Here is Tabata stating XV broke even on day 1
>G: There has been a lot of speculation on how many copies the game needed to sell to break even. Are we there yet? Did Final Fantasy XV break even and is now into profitable territory?
>HT: Of course, we broke even on day one.
Here is official report confirming XV was close to 6.6m by Nov 2017
Here is SE confirm XV hit 8.4m by Nov 2018, 2 years after release
Here is SE state XV hit 9.8m in 2021, 5 years after release
Here is SE state FFXV hit 10m+ in May 2022, 5.5 years after release
It literally sold 6m in a month at full price you retard, it sales through 2017 was an additional 1m at near full price and above half
In 2018 royal/pc version was released back at full price and that sold an additional 1.4m at full price in a few months, then it kept selling at $50-$60 until December 2019 when SE officially lowered its default price to $35-$40 after it had hit 8.9m-9m
And it did an additional 1m priced at $35-$40 which when on steam sale was $17.50-$20 at its lowest
its literally $31 in 2023 on Amazon, PSN and XBL has it at $35 not including ardyn dlc, $40 with it
Why are you so full of shit? It literally has had the single best sales performance in franchise history
FF7 took 2x longer to hit 10m and was literally $15 or lower since 1999-2000 when it had only sold 6.57m by then.
>Here is official report confirming XV was close to 6.6m by Nov 2017
Damn, it sold slower than FFXIII for a game that took twice as long to develop. Sad!
Or instead I could just play a good game, instead of doing an unsupported challenge run in a shit game with shit enemies, shit combat, shit magic, shit story, shit characters, and shit everything except Chocobo riding and fishing.
Didn't know Minecraft had food plates.
why does every game need to have so many superfluous details and extravagant wastes of resources (both developmentally and performance-wise)????? I see people freaking out about rdr2 "attention to detail" with guys slamming rails into the tracks but all I see is union boys wasting time making an animation loop here and there that takes hours of manpower to justify the 60 dollar price tag and idk decade long dev cycle. It's just stupid. A waste of time. If AI could upscale and render things like this quickly, and if it wasn't graphically intensive, sure! But the video game industry is ludicrously bloated with companies squeezing time and money out of everything and games coming so poorly optimized that there's barely a way to compare how efficient early game programmers made games fit onto hardware. Games could LITERALLY take up a HUNDREDTH of their current space and load in less than a second on modern hardware if you sacrificed those stupid dumb extra polys on your burgers and chud flags in the sewer level and used the dev time to optimize the game. GOD I HATE garden gnomes SO MUCH
>why does every game need to [...] GOD I HATE garden gnomes SO MUCH
Attention to detail for things that "don't matter" is exactly what soul means but when it's expressed with something that is graphically intense Ganker shits their pants in rage. Meanwhile Mario muttering about types of pasta in his sleep makes everyone go insane
imagine defending taking a decade to make a game that takes up a terabyte of space when it could (and should) be made in a year and take up 15gb max AND saying that that's the same thing as adding loving details and flourishes to a game. If you have a bunch of food on display, detail it up! If you need a burger on a table for 1 cutscene don't spend 30 man hours animating it rotting in place. Dumb, stupid, retarded, dull, dim
Someone post the Mass Effect jelly wine, details matter and if something looks shitty it is what people remember
modern "devs" don't know how to optimize to save their lives. battlefield 3 ended up something like 200gb, on the ps3.
It's a deliberate strategy to occupy extra hard drive space, thus forcing you to uninstall the competition
I uninstall their unoptimized shit though and they should know that by now.
Muh column gameplay
noticing details is fun, it shows the devs care at least a little bit about the game they're making and aren't just clocking in for a paycheck at the end of the day.
>call games soulless when they are low effort
>call games wastes where there is effort put it
Nothing pleases you miserable fucks.
Yeah that's pretty good but it's no Yakuza bread
I'm dissapointed that it took so long for this to be mentioned
This will be games in 2019.
This will be games in 2019.
This will be games in 2019.
god but I do truly fucking despise how ugly xiv is
I have to believe it's because of square doing their usual "literally zero money to the things that are good or profitable" strat and not incompetence by the devs
Not everyone can be a korean game developer.
Korean games are worse. Good graphics but no style, no substance, just soulless. Also Korean food is shit.
Korean shit is absolutely soulless
Is it due to their plastic surgery culture?
Graphically, the game was initially released in 2010. It looks fine for the time and hasn't aged too badly.
Left looks more appetizing unironically
>glossy burger bun
This shit made of stained glass or something?
probably oozing with grease
i'm surprised those fries arent served in a cup or something stupid, and that plate probably costs $40 at a "gastropub"
>probably oozing with grease
Usually it's just egg wash, brushed on the last few minutes of baking. Common trick to make buns look that way.
Have you never had a roll or bun with a smooth crust?
probably oozing with grease
i'm surprised those fries arent served in a cup or something stupid, and that plate probably costs $40 at a "gastropub"
>third world weebmorons never saw a hamburger bun in their lives
they probably only know what mcdonalds and cheap grocery store buns look like
It's called a brioche you fucking philistine, you use an egg wash to add a shiny crunch. It's not grease.
Brioche buns are a meme, but its a better meme than sesame seed buns. I can't wait for Pain du boeuf with like little cylinders of meat.
I hate the French so much it's unreal
What a shit bread. Just eat a fuckin puff pastry sheet or some Philo dough at that point.
Why are there turds in your bread?
Do frogs really?
this is a brioche, learn to food you lardass
>hating americans means you are english
haha you wish
Chicken and waffles are so fucking good, it's unreal. Thought it was a meme for so long, too.
All of that food is incredibly good. I'm not British so I'm not a fan of beans but other than that
It's like kebab, it's just greasy as fuck and that sates your base desire for calories
Fuck me I love foods and breads.
Fat people should die
they will. and often sooner. remember that fat activist who died and they fatties were like "idk how a healthy 600 pound 30 year old would suddenly have an explosive heart attack act of god i guess!"
I hope you are trolling because that is a croissant and is made of laminated dough.
your mom is a croissant
Probably an American bun with a sugar glaze.
Duality of obsession
Man who never eats pork bun is never a whole man!
this game made me want to try a pork bun so bad, but I have never been in the vicinity of one
You're missing out. They're fantastic. Find a dim sum restaurant and they're guaranteed to show up.
Someone post the webm of NPCs eating in RDR2.
why does he hold his utensils like a toddler
You mean Continental style? Its considered to be the "posh" fork style.
He mostly holds them like an American, which means swapping the fork between hands and using it as a scoop, but for some reason he goes tines-down at the start.
I do this. Tines down in left hand when I need to stab/hold something, tines up in my right to scoop up anything too small/soft to be stabbed
Reminder: When the wife of one Byzantine emperor ate with a fork it so scandalized the populace they revolted and the current Ecumenical patriarch denounced her.
There is no style in which a fork is acceptable for a true roman.
Animation like this is tier 3 or of least importance. It only needs to be good enough to sell the illusion at a distance and wont hold up under scrutiny.
There's a mirror next to your detector.
because americans are retarded
rdr2 has some cool details but it's a shit woke game.
Ignore the single player and only do the online instead.
That’s a lotta polygons
That burger in the opening Scene of RE2 looks amazing.
>how it should look
>plastic shine on everything
>"onion rings" that looks like turds
Left makes me want to take a crowbar to it.
>fingers in the "cheese"
>other hand not even holding the top of the bun, just jamming her fingers into the burger itself
Uh, that's fucking gross dude.
The AI is trying its best
>he doesn't get hard from girls getting dirty from messy food
>he doesn't want to clean her up with his tongue
>>he doesn't get hard from girls getting dirty from messy food
>>he doesn't want to clean her up with his tongue
That shit is gross. You're gross. I bet you have a scat fetish you gross fuck.
>he doesn't seductively finger his burgers in order to get hard
what are you, european?
i bond burgered your sister?
See this one looks gross to me because the lettuce has clearly had time to go soggy and disgusting
Yeah but it accomplished its goal of looking like a low quality burger a trucker got in the last station and probably kept in the wrapper for half an hour before getting to it.
LITERALY GOY SLOP
Is that the re:2 sandwich?
This one actually looks like a real burger compared to the plastic one OP posted.
Wtf are you talking about it looks like a building from the 3d google maps view.
they look like that
The fat fuck that eats is so disgusting I alt+f4'd on my first attempt at the game on that intro cutscene.
Fat people eating, especially in messy ways, makes me nauseous.
I would fucking destroy that burgo
Ganker moron with an intel i5 4690k and gtx 1660 has such wish thinking.
new world's cooking and food art is one of the things they did right. I love it. professions in that game are just like 500+ hours of fun on their own.
That looks awful, the materials are all off. The food looks like plastic.
The onion rings are CLIPPING! AHHH!
mmm donut shaped cheese puffs and peach slices go good with a burger
>how it should look
NINTENDO, HIRE THIS MAN!!!
>one can of other, please
Americans, ladies and gentlemen
-20 FPS has been deposited into your account
I think I would rather those resources be used to make better gameplay, but we don't even get that.
how food should look in videogames
imagine being so fat you look at computers and see food
The "food" on the right of your image is "out of phase" with the rest of the world/world objects.
That is a MAJOR issue. This is what people mean by "soulless" v. "soul".
When a game is not in harmony with itself in relation to story, physical interactions or graphics, something similar to a uncanny valley is created.
In order to have a believable world, you need cohesion. You need the objects to match one another in terms of graphical fidelity, poly count and coloring/texture style.
If things do not match up, the world becomes unacceptable.
The item on the left matches the worldspace better, and so it looks "better" in context.
absolute disgusting pigs
every time i see or hear some gays drooling over food i feel nothing but disgust, absolute fucking pigs
the worst thing are those instagram cooks who tell you how delicious something is, esspecially when they make those disgusting pighuman sounds like "mmmmhhhmmm"
absolute fucking monsters you are
It's weird because I don't give a shit about actually eating the food. What it will taste like doesn't even cross my mind. I just love the way it looks and watching it being made. It's pure artistry.
>american makes a thread
Remember when you people cried about no mirrors for like 2 generations and then they started putting ray tracing for reflections, followed by people crying about intentionally crippling performance?
Vanillaware was always the best at portraying mouthwatering meals.
I can almost taste the smokiness of that fish steak on the left.
gaem? looks cute and comfy
Big titty wizard mommy the game.
You mean the e-boi character? Yeah... Uh... "e-boi" and "mommy" are contradictions in terms, buddy.
Steam never 🙁
Don't worry. You're not missing anything. It's just a pretty crappy beat 'em up with a small handful of levels you're expected to grind over and over and over again. The game is horrendously overrated by weeb coomers. There's maybe a few hours worth of actual content in the game and then you're just repeating old levels again. And the gameplay itself is not very good. The only redeeming value the game has is the art. Everything else about it ranges from mediocre to subpar.
Go play The Vagrant
I have Crohn and I can’t eat anything. I just starve myself and eat some rice or pasta every 2-3 days... 🙁
I dont care about background stuff.
ultimately is it really worth the extra effort to make the right image outside of any scenes that will actually focus on food?
i will find amusing how cyberpunk 2077, the game with some of the most advanced rendering techniques, 8 years of development, food looks like this - and its literally everywhere, the game has hundreds of food stands, restaurants.
My problem with the food was that you couldn't sit down and eat it. Like mechanically it's not useful, so at least make the experience of consuming it atmospheric.
The problem with food in videogames is I have been unable to eat plenty of foods for the last 6 months
Retards will ask for everything to have a trillion poligons and then complain about why the game is so badly optimized.
It's fucking retarded because you're wasting time and resources when you could be doing something far more important. Doing shit like this is what delays games.
Where are my realistic eating animations? Too much attention is paid to gore.
When I was a kid, I liked looking at Threads Of Fate's food despite it being low poly.
most food IRL looks like left though, McDonalds for example is absolute Goyslop
But where are the vegan meals in vidya?
In my experience, lots of unique, high detail props densely packed into an area requires a shitload of loading and unloading when moving through that area which will impact framerate, lead to issues with shit not loading in time, and means character models are getting fucked instead.
yeah I definitely need the tiny random props in a game to have a billion polygons and super high-res textures. It's an art taught by the exclusive "more=better clueless modder"-school of game design
it makes me so fucking mad that people care about shit that doesnt impact gameplay or your enjoyment of the game whatsoever.
Just do it like Pizza Dude and have dedicated ham shaders.
Right doesn't even look llike food.
I hate these super tall burgers used in advertising. It wouldn't even fit in your mouth no matter how wide you opened up.
>man hasn't done his burger compressions at the gym
Is he even a man at that point?
>just turn the buns into a soggy flatbread, bro
>thousands of polygons and slower framerate just to see nicer burgers
do burgers really
That fucking pea soup though.
i will not eat the worms
Imagine being so fat you actually give a shit how videogame food looks. Lose 300 lbs fatty or better rid the world of your pathetic existence
imagine being so fat you play videogames and think about food
>waste drawing calls on a shitty prop
Why so many people like to eat bread, Its literally the worst food ever and its food for the poor. Rich people dont eat bread.
Any broad dumb enough to make her chromosomes known on Ganker deserves everything she gets. The adage ‘there are no girls on the internet’ is meant to convey that nobody knows who you are behind the computer screen, so how you get treated is solely based on how you act.
My food budget is $5 a day. Bread, rice, and beans with a glass of tap water are about all I can afford.
>he can drink tap water
Check your privilege shitlord! Donate your paycheck to starving Africans right now!
>Rich people dont eat bread.
Except they literally do retard, real bread baked in their own kitchen and especially not corn syrup filled goyslop you americans keep calling bread which neither looks, smells nor tastes like one. Fuck off back to Ganker
As someome who makes a lot of money, I can't be bothered to bake bread myself.
You don't have a lot of money then if you cannot afford a cook/housemaid like the poorfag you are
>tfw have celiacs diease
>cant have anything with gluten which is almost everything
>alternatives exist but they are expensive and hard to find where i live
>nowhere restaurant around here has a gluten free menu
Miss me fast foods...miss me dominos...miss me fried chicken...
Just eat it and suffer the sore bowels and running shits later
why do you want a free menu if you can't have gluten idiot
dunning kruger blenderfag?
There's no way right actually passes in the industry if a studio was trying to make food look good in the first place
It's more, why waste precious polygons on something that almost nobody is going to see or care about?
FFXV's food looks good and is well modeled only because they want you to see it and it's shown only in tiny cutscenes with nothing else.
I wouldn't eat a burger with that much sauce. It just gets all over your hands and it's a fucking awful eating experience. Instagram tier food.
>It just gets all over your hands
Eat it with a fork and a knife then, you homo
>Wants to use silverware for a burger
>Calls other people homo
You're as bad as when the mayor of New York City had no fucking idea how to eat pizza.
I'm not the guy that's fucking scared of bbq sauce on my fingers.
>american bread uses so much sugar that it legally cannot be called bread outside of america
>american chocolate uses vomit flavoring
what the fuck is wrog with americans
I have an african friend who can only eat brioche because he isn't used to nonsweet bread.
yeah just top your burger with a whole entire bun on top of it
So how is Monster Hunter on PC? Does that game have fun activities and side world things to do?
World has a few side activities. You can hunt for endemic life and fishes and iceborne has a sort of pokemon snap type sidequest thing going on where you hunt for specific things to photograph and some riddle sidequests from cat camps if you gain enough favor
>entire bun on top of the burger
>cheese and ketchup look like paint
>the slice of bacon looks raw
>onion rings look like cheetos
>potatoes look like slices of mango
How it should look in a nightmare is more like it.
man look at all that detailed machinery in the backgrounds
the artstyle of this game is pure soul
>Sweaty fat fucks jerking off to food porn
Put the hot pocket down and pick up a salad.
How about I pick up your pathetic chud ass and throw it back into Ganker
>put down food and pick up more food
Get outta here, plantbrain.
Imagine being at computers
It looks like the bottom bun is the bottom half of a bun while the top one is just a whole uncut bun.
Why did "whypipo can't cook" become a meme anyway?
European cuisine is literally the pinnacle of food you can get and virtually every top level chef is trained in French cuisine.
Is it just because a nation of fast food fiends never learned how to prepare a meal?
In context it usually refers to white americans, not europeans.
Like I said, fast food fiends. But surely Americans can manage an actual, eduble meal.
Considering there are more michelin star restaurants in the US than in any other country, I’d argue the US is the best culinary country in the world. In France, all you get is French cooking. In Italy, all you get is Italian cooking. In America, you get cooking from every single culinary region on the planet along with countless domestic experiments.
You misunderstand something fundamental.
Italian cuisine is French cuisine. German cuisine is French cuisine. British cuisine is French cuisine. And all high-class American cuisine is French cuisine.
Every single western culinary tradition is based on French cooking techniques and traditions, because the French were the first to collect, formalize and proliferate them.
>sauerkraut, mozzarella, and meat pies are French
No. French cuisine was historically hoisted up as the gold standard, but it is not the progenitor of all high class cuisines in the world today. It’s not 1957 anymore where the classy restaurants exclusively serve Steak Diane and imported wine.
Fermented cabbage might not be french, but the techniques you use to prepare it are.
equivalent cheeses exist in France
the french have meat pies
Again, collection and proliferation.
Think about how most cooking terms have a french origin.
>France maybe has something vaguely similar, therefore it is French!
People use the French terms because they sound fancier. There are germanic/english equivalents for most French culinary terms, they’re just deprecated because they’re seen as ‘low class’. For a classic example, see ‘chef’ vs ‘cook’.
Black people literally cannot taste flavor without dumping an entire bottle of McCormicks on a chicken breast before deep fat frying it, Anon. These are the people that tell you whites can't cook. Don't even get me started on, "Hispanicy tolerance."
it's because brown people have no culture or achievements so all they can try to say is muh dik or white pepo dont Hispanice dey food
To be fair, French cuisine traditionally doesn't really use Hispanices. Most of the flavour comes from the ingredients and methods
morons' only experience with "white people food" is the free, zero budget food they get at public school cafeterias and prison.
Dear dev teams,
please waste time modelling and implementing high resolution and poly count assets that the player will glance at in the corner of their screen in your games instead of using that time to instead polish assets that the player looks at a lot more or that are closer to the critical path.
While we're at it, please also model everything from all angles and spend 4x the resources building useless shit the players are never going to bother so when they go out of bounds, it looks nice.
Fuck off retard. This is a pointless waste of time and games are already succumbing to visual overcooking where everything gets delayed because they have to push the graphics as hard as they can and burn time making ridiculous useless shit.
>move as it should
I can't even remember if I saw them eating it. Probably not since it's not very memorable.
You don't other than maybe a silhouette. After the food is placed down it goes to the level-up/camp screen.
