Then how come exclusive games like The Order, Uncharted or HZD have an overall better image quality that 90% of PC exclusive titles?

Aaaaanyway, I think its important to remind people that Josef Fares is a film director first and foremost. And who has directed an astonishing number of two games so far, including A Way Out. Maybe not the authority you should listen to when it comes to gaming technology. Seriously, it sounds like Fares just talked to an actual dev who ranted about limited console specs like RAM management during the port of AWO, and is now reurgitating that for the presses.

Consoles holding back PC performance is not a revelation. Devs need to target all platforms; which means working with the lowest specs; i.e. consoles which struggle with 1080p @ 60fps.

Read the full report via Kotaku; it paints the whole situation.

I did read it before commenting, on Kotaku it suggests bad management was the core problem, though the author does have a crack at the engine being an issue. Seems they wanted to blame anyone and everything for the mess they made not only of MEA but of EA's backing, fans goodwill and Bioware's reputation. EA was right to disband them.

I'd really like to know what the criteria for the confidence metric is. What if I enjoy a certain indie game but others don't? Now I won't get cards for it because of them? That's bullshit.

I'm guessing revealing that information would help to enable bad actors to game the system again. Legitimacy of the game and not negative reviews would be the measurement so nothing to get angry about yet.

The "main BioWare" is still working on another IP and were the ones responsible for previous DA and ME, this was a new group.

ME3 threw away the whole story from ME1 & ME2 for some retconned garbage with plot holes light-years wide followed by Red:Green:Blue.


DA:I was so tedious I couldn't finish it and just watched the laughable boss fight on YouTube.


DA2 was a shameless money grab.


SWTOR was terrible and I regret my early-access/pre-order to this day.


Now this.


Sorry, it's time to be honest. Bioware hasn't done anything worthwhile since ME2 and DA:O. And I don't expect it to get better.


What I expect is it to get worse. Like Maxis. Like Origin. Like every other thing EA has touched.

No Vin Diesel as Groot either, just won't sound the same.


Seriously though apparently their engine was largely upgraded for Batman and Walking Dead S03, but I haven't gotten around to either yet

I enjoyed TWD Season 1, but never got around to starting season 2. Have it installed, but I haven't watched any trailers of season 3 (atleast nothing until I play through s2 first). I may take a look at batman's gameplay. I heard reviews were sub-par, but it could be a way to find out if the gameplay experience is any better. Maybe they fixed it enough from the depressing state it was in for their earlier games.
