This is how Fallout 3 looks like in 4K when played on the Xbone X:

Mercifully, Katphood didn't include any screenies that included closeups of characters.  I can only imagine the faces are even more terrifying in 4k.  :shifty:

looks like something made in RPG Maker



Read the reviews. Of course it's awful graphic, but at least it is still a good game.

I guess it's a tiny baby elephant and I guess it wanted a bath?

It's like in real life, when someone in the room is talking/expressing when a mean person (like, me) takes a picture.

I don't read reviews. Game journalism died in 2002 as far as I'm concerned. If you mean user reviews, then I don't even consider those worth existing.

So basically you go into every game purchase without any information other than what the developer and publisher provide? That doesn't seem like a more informed way of going about things.

 

I just tend to look for reviews that I can identify with. Most of the people here fit that mold, and rarely lead me astray.

You can usually get a good general idea of a game by comparing the mutual points of more reputable game journaIists. I usually also look at the middling user reviews: 4 to 7/10, though it depends on how the other reviews average; those are usually the ones that try and list both positive and negative points instead of fanboying or hating on it without reason.

How enlightened of you. Of course, I imagine those videos are made by reviewers and users, so maybe you do have a wee bit of reliance of game journalists and users in order to make your decisions.  :dancing:

You still rely on their content.

I don't think we're on the same page. I don't consider reviews "content". user reviews are completely useless, because those users have no rapport with me. "professional" reviews are various degrees of terrible terrible, because gaming journalism is still in its infancy compared to, for example, film criticism (was there ever an English-speaking writer of Ebert's caliber among game journos?).
