[EG] Shogun 2 to launch without DirectX 11 - Page 4

post #31 of 61
I rather be able to play it for 2-4 weeks in dx10 than wait that long for the game to launch with it in game. The difference between this and crysis 2 is that people weren't expecting this game to be pushing the envelope on graphics.

I've actually got my copy of the limited edition.

I've yet to install it, as i'm still playing Empire: TW.

For some reason this doesn't trouble me so much, the only thing that bothers me is how this is exactly what Crytek did, difference being Crysis 2 (demo) was a blatent port. Empire series is a PC exclusive.

I'm sure they have their reasons, so i'm not fussed. I'll only complain if the dx11 patch causes a host of performance problems. In my experience i tend to find thats the case with the latest DX version.

Yay another crappy trend in the industry. Not only are they going to release beta quality games instead of having a smooth launch, now they're going to market a bunch of features and then say "oh wait, we'll patch it in later" at the end.

And the gaming industry continues to become crappier..

I believe the DX11 will be given out in a DLC released about a day after the game comes out. Also only half the price of the actual game... I know right these guys are jokers,,,

This is exactly how I thought Direct x11 would turn up. Incredibly low support for games,but hyped up.Here is an another game that failed at dx11,dragon age 2 that is.

Funny, too bad this wasn't the general consensus when Blizzard took forever to make StarCraft II. OCNers are so hard to please.

Would you rather the game be crappy in DX11 or Above average in DX10?

I remember more people complaining that Just Cause 2 was only DX10 than people being happy about it, but now eveyone is acting like DX9 should die and everyhting switch to DX11 just to cater to the very small minority like us on OCN, that is pure hypocrisy.
I think it's great if a game uses DX11 but it's really pretty low on my list when it comes to choosing my next game to play, unfortunately we have a lot of graphic whores here who rate and play their games only because of pretty visuals.

It's not about it having DX11 or not having DX11.

It's about them patching a pretty big feature that's very integrated into the core functioning of the game AFTER release.

When a game is released, it should be finished.

If a dev finds some bugs once the consumers get their hands on it, okay, patch it. If a dev wants to put in time after release on some DLC, then fine.

But to still be working on core aspects of the game engine after it's gone gold? That's ridiculous, they should have delayed it and released it when it's actually finished...

this.
but really look at what crysis 2 can do with just DX9. its still a perfectly good API and it gets the job done very well!
yes DX11 would be nice for everything but whining about it isnt gonna do ****.
DX9 is like the AK-47 of games. old, but powerful and reliable (and cheap :/)
besides, can will we really notice a difference? tessellation is nice, but people make perfectly good games crap just because they dont have the eye candy that they want.

lame.
