Whoa, where am I?

Yeah, let's not make a goblin of myself...

Because I really don't think this would be a good look for me:

(awesome detail: as an attack animation the goblins take the fish out of their mouths and wack you with it)

 

 

Companions have an affection system? Morrigan probably disapproves...

And with some of the questions I ask, even my character facepalms...

Melkathi: Those goblins look like Dobby in that Harry Potter-movie, and you know, of course, which guy that fella is based upon?

Hey, it actually looks good now. Why was the graphics-engine degraded in the PC version to begin with?

Aliens.

 

 

Well, in the absence of any official explanation, one conspiracy theory is as good as another. But in the PC industry alone we've seen purposeful sabotage of game features at the behest of certain hardware companies in order to make their competitors look bad. (For example, the lockout of anti-aliasing in Arkham Asylum if an AMD card is detected, or the invisible tessellation in Crysis 2) I wouldn't be surprised if this 'equalisation measure' had similar motives. Not sure which party would be the primary driver though, Ubi for fear of cannibalisation of the console version sales, or the console vendors to spare embarrassment.

The silliest part of that conspiracy theory is that, in theory, Ubi stands to make more money off each PC copy sold than console copies sold, because they don't have to fork over the licensing fee.  I'm not saying that conspiracy theory is definitely wrong, though.

 

My own theory is less conspiracy and more incompetence/rushing out the door.  I'm guessing what happened is that when they first released the video at E3 Ubi really wanted to make the game look like that, but the hardware wasn't completely finalized for the PS4 and XBone at that time.  Then when they got to work with the finalized hardware, they realized that the miraculous new systems from Sony and Microsoft couldn't handle all the extra shiny, so they swept some of the extra shiny under the carpet and worked on a gimped version as a base across PS4, XBone, and PC, plus working off a lesser base likely made it easier to do the PS3 and 360 versions, though those still turned out like garbage, from what I read.  Then they spent most of their time up to release trying their best to get stable framerates on the PS4 and XBone, and trying to fix the dog**** framerates on the PS3 and 360, and either ran out of time to reimplement the stuff they swept under the carpet for PC (which would also explain why the PC version is so poorly optimized, they ran out of time to do that too), or they just flat out forgot about it.

Possible that they're factoring the greater likelihood of piracy on the PC I suppose. i.e. someone choosing to pirate a PC version over buying a console version if the console version has no advantages.

I guess.  I figure if someone is going to pirate the PC version they're going to do it regardless, advantages or not.

I should probably mess with the ini files to see if I can push the draw distance a bit further than the standard menu lets me.  I'm sure my card could handle drawing prettier mountains and trees to a further distance.

Watch Dogs with that new graphics unlocker, makes the game look like the original E3 2012 tech demo

 

It looks the same as base game except everything is really blurry and bloomy. PC gamers show yet again how utterly moronic they are. All it takes is making the character shortsighted and hey, it's nextgen now! It was a conspiracy too!

In my mod, the bokeh blur is actually dynamic, and focuses near or far depending on what's on what's in your crosshairs, like a real video camera bro. I also have Watch Dogs on Xbone, and this looks way better. I also use Sweetfx on the pc Watch Dogs, which sharpens the edges and color
