Rage mega-textures don't play well with PC
Fans are justifiably upset with how poor Rage is performing on PC. Several users have experienced all manner of texture pop in, screen tearing, and other various issues with the PC version. While the game itself seems to have additional Nvidia drivers, I haven't seen anything that specific for ATI. John Carmack took to Twitter to remind everyone that you need the "latest Nvidia/Ati drivers to play Rage!” Thanks for that...
This is why I hate PC gaming sometimes. It would be nice if the software could reach out to the Internet, find those particular drivers, and provide you the appropriate files for your PC. Bryan is currently reviewing this title at ScrewAttack and from what little I have seen, Rage looks great. That is why it is a shame that PC players can't play without "forcing v-sync [or] triple-buffering... Nvidia drivers." Gamers just want to shoot mutants in the face, but this mega-textured building keeps popping in and out! Here is a video of some of the pain people are experiencing.
I dont have any problems. only super ultra minor popups, nothing to worry about. i also have everything on max, so dunno what the problem should be.
Oh ok, I understand. No problems man. Me and Kenshiro3 did kind of overreact there...
Dang... I sound like a Grammar Nazi.
Its just a pet peeve. This quote by Kenshiro3 took me a while to realize just where the sentence is supposed to fragment up.
Kenshiro3 said: "considering the PC version of Deus Ex: HR is the best version, I hardly think The PC crowd got shafted... also Skyrim aint out yet so unless you have a DeLorean i don't know about STFU and stop acting like you know the future"
In retrospect, its kind of obvious that a comma follows right after "I don't know about", but when you are kinda sleepy trying to follow a conversation it gets really hard to follow a big mass of words. Go back a page and check the great bal's comments. No apostrophes or periods. Just a mass of thoughts separated by commas (which I am thankful for).
In closing, didn't mean to offend you, I was just trying to be the little kid getting between mommy and daddy who've been fighting way too long over something way too meh.
& how do fanboys kill off gaming,console manufacturers,game developers etc need a fanbase that is y they indulge in branding & franchising,loyalty is good,it helps experienced developers make a lot of money,so that in future they can release games of high production values without fear of making a loss,if fanboys didnt exist everybody would follow the concept of freemium & waste their time(coz its free)on content that is not worth spending time on,& very soon gaming would cease to b a form of mainstream entertainment,if fanboys didnt exist the only video games u would b playing or know about now would b the ones that pop up in ur browser when u enter a random website
that debate is a never ending one & people would forget what this blog is about,some people enjoy doing it,even john carmack is an opengl fanboy & has stated many times (since 1996)how it is superior to directx,it may b true,pc gamers maybe right so let them voice their opinions only then can u analyze & truly understand the pros & cons of a system,they r basically console critics,and this discussion is a waste of time coz ultimately democracy prevails,so if the general public is happy with the wii,its gonna buy the wii,it dosent matter whether it is a good buy or not,see we r already out of topic,we started out with ur targeting of pc gamers & now we r comparing consoles,this is what happens,either i would take this turn,or u would do it or somebody else would do it,coz everything is co-related & can go on forever(figuratively)
No problem man, I think we both overacted a bit. It's all cool now.
No what I'm saying is elitists are fanboys as well. ALL fanboys have superiority and Inferiority complexes. The Difference is Ignorance. Elitists (PC or Console) tend to know enough to know how stupid it is, However instead they use that knowledge to Rationalize why the other side holding back/killing gaming. Rather than aknowledging both sides have their strengths and weaknesses and that neither is inherently better over the other. The Difference between the PC & Console fanboy crowds though is that Elitists are more prevalent among the PC gamers. Its that "knowing better but still choosing to repeat the same mistakes anyway" that pisses me off so much.
I would rather not to get into a PC VS Console Debate. And if we did it WOULD be my fault but I'M OK IF IT DOES HAPPEN. I LOVE a good debate. How about you?
& how was i OVER generalizing & u retorted to my comment like a parrot,is that ur earth shattering repartee,again i just reacted to what u posted,i have nothing against u,so u dont have to target me,or else very soon u will have an entire discussion about consoles vs pc & xbox 360 vs ps3,gears vs uncharted etc in this blog & u would b the one who started it all
u mean to say console gamers dont think of themselves as"master race elitists",& pc gamers do,if that was so then fifa in consoles wont have so many stupid online features,& so wouldnt madden,& cod mw3 wont be having an elite buy option in which u can specifically play with people who like the same type of music that u do,console gamers use social networking a lot more nowadays to portray themselves as elite(i dont believe in it,but for ur understanding and answering u)gamers & r obsessed with ocd completions,most pc gamers dont even publicly boast about their gaming skills & even play facebook games,how do u say this behaviour is unique to PC fanboys,as if there r no console fanboys,in fact many of them still clinge to their 20 year old consoles and play rare outdated games which havent aged well coz they find an antiquity value in doing so,& using terms like master race,stfu & elitists towards a particular section of gamers is rude,it dosent matter whether u belong with them or not & i was angered by the terms u used in page one & m still not concerned with ur page 2 material,use screwattack to post ur opinion like that guy did & not target or spread hatred towards a particular section of gamers coz we r all gamers
Its Cool I understood what you meant hence why I agreed with you about Deus Ex, Rage, & Elder Scrolls. Sorry for jumping the gun & overreacting.
Check Page 2... I already admitted to & apologized for jumping the gun and overreacting. YOU were the one over generalizing. Because again if you read my reply on the second pate that was posted WAY before yours you will see I wasn't lumping all PC gamers in with Elitists. I was referring to the PC FANBOYS specifically as elitists. If you read my reply on the second page you would ALSO know that I am a PC gamer, I even have the mark XD. YOU are the one coming off as a pedantic pseudo intellectual.
stop generalizing,its his opinion & his feeling that he got shafted,its normal coz he thinks he cant utilize his powerful pc to its full potential(i.e to run games in really nice graphics,especially when a game is not a port & promises to run better on a powerful pc),its a common feeling among pc gamers,stop acting like a pedantic pseudo intellectual,this is not about which platform is better,yes there r pc gamers who own only a pc & boast about how much wiser they r coz pc games r cheaper,better controls,lesser number of systems to maintain,debugging features etc,but even that is more about portraying themselves as hardcore & knowledgable gamers(sometimes there is credence if it is a fact,if somebody is better than me at a game i would accept it & if he is really good & takes his gaming skills seriously i would even regard him as a hardcore gamer,i have a friend who is very good at cs & i regard him as a hardcore cs gamer),but most pc gamers do understand that u can attain the same amount of gaming prowess in mario,& even that is can b regarded as hardcore(i m not even talking about console fighting games),so pc gamers r less elitist & fanboyish,its consoles gamers who r really touchy about their console games,especially the exclusive ones
Dude, there's nothing wrong with the grammer that me or Kenshiro3 used. So what are you talking about?
You know what pisses me off? People who are stingy with their punctuations.
the texture pop in is even there on the ps3 although not quite to the extent in the video. Although once you start moving around, start shooting... you don't really notice it. And even in spite of the pop-in the game looks really sharp. Wish it had a better narration to go with it. But I guess you can't have everything... *looks at Warren Buffett*... or can you?
Ok, maybe 'belongs' was the wrong word. All I meant was that I preferred to play them on PC.
I do absolutely agree with you about PC elitist attitude. Fanboys are bad, but they dont carry this sense of being a higher being. A friend of mine is a major one so it pisses me off when I'm put in the same camp. My main console is actually the PS3.
I didn't mean for my comment to come off elitist, but I do agree 'Belongs' was the wrong word, so I understand why it looked like that.
At least we are now united against the tyranny of PC elitists!
I don't play games on PC because I can't stand keyboard and mouse controls so I console it. But I must say, it sucks for the people that do enjoy PC gaming. This shouldn't me an issue in any version of the game. I hope they patch it up soon.
My main problem is just that the games have a third of the players than the PC version.
