Ubisoft speaks “New Levels” of graphics development for PS4 Pro and Scorpio

With the release of the PS4 Pro, it brought along a new era of gaming and development with it being the first mid-generation upgrade gaming has ever seen. Developers are now able to explore a new level of capability compared to it’s predecessor. As we all know, developers will take some time to push the new tech to its limits. With the likes of Project Scorpio, it might even take years befor...

The Art of Gaming: Environmental Storytelling – Worldly Beauty

Take a look at your surroundings right now. Look at the little intricacies and the various items scattered everywhere. Your surroundings tell a distinct story. Maybe it’s something mundane like the glass you left on your table that has been sitting there for 2 days because you were too lazy to go to the kitchen. Maybe it’s a family portrait of that time you all went on a vacation and e...

The Art of Gaming: Graphics – Magical Pixels

Show me one person who does not like pretty things. While beauty is still very much subjective, we are still enamoured by visually appealing things. Besides being a precious metal, gold is so sought after simply because it looks pretty and shiny. We decorate our homes with posters, paintings and carpets of various colours. Companies design their packaging to be as visually appealing as possible be...

Video: Top Ten best PC Graphics

Those close to me will know that I am a man that likes the shiny things in life [Ed – So you’re a crow?]. I am no different when it comes to games and the quickest way for a game to impress me is by having amazing visuals. Call me a graphics whore if you will – a pretty accurate description of me to be honest, but I like pretty games. I decided to count down the top ten best look...

Video: Ratchet & Clank graphics comparison between PS4, PS3 and PS2

We recently reviewed the remake of the classic Ratchet & Clank game and it’s received deserved praise around the world. Keep in mind that there’s quite a big difference between and remake and a remastered game. Digital Foundry, the folks who love doing video comparisons, have taken some time to compare the PS4 remake to the PS3 remaster of the PS2 original game. It’s actually...

Gamers Den – Game with the best graphics money can buy right now

Finally, a topic where David can really shine! He shines so much that Jarred finds glitter on his lips (yes, it’s a very sexy episode). Valshen points out a title that stems from the Land of the Rising Sun, Jarred reminds us of a game that’s easily one of the best graphical showcases (that, according to Valshen, could include ‘wang’ physics in the future) and David loses hi...

CD Projekt discusses the graphics downgrade

When I first saw the Witcher 3 at E3 2013, it was jaw-droppingly beautiful. Meditating wasn’t done on a menu, allowing you to watch a time-lapse of the world around you, a scene so awe-inspiring it felt like I was watching something on National Geographic. Then I started playing on XBO and things looked a bit different. It was still gorgeous, but some of those small touches that pushed it to...

Video: The graphical evolution of the PlayStation

I think I can soundly say that in South Africa it’s very much a PlayStation country. Since the inception of the PS1 there has always been fantastic support for the PlayStation brand and it happened to launch locally at the perfect time, just as SEGA was slipping in their Saturn days. Therefore there are MANY people who started their gaming days on the PS1. Have you ever wondered just how muc...

Now it’s The Division’s turn to receive a graphics comparison

You might all recall the whole Watch_Dogs debacle? Some people were distraught with the fact that the original E3 trailer looked better than the final offering. Did it affect sales? No. Did it affect the experience? No. It’s more proof to the masses that graphics are important, but not what decides if a game is great or not. Now it’s The Division’s turn to be scrutinised by the i...
