Very appropriate considering the movie was more than likely written by two teenagers in a room playing the game.

As shiatty of a PC we got got.. It's still superior to every console version out there.

Well, I guess you can rest easy knowing that it's a user made mod and the companies aren't actually getting any ad dollars for it.

GTA4 mods are farking awesome. The community did so very much with such an shiatball port. I'm so disappointed that there still isn't even a confirmation of a PC release. And as much as I hate to admit it, Online is a mess. The matchmaking, loading screens, and voting options are still all godawful and bog the game down. Jumping into a race/mission/deathmatch is slow, painful, shaky, and by the time you actually get to the gameplay you have five players left of sixteen. Then the match ends, and it's time to VOTE! Oh boy, let's make sure we get a rating from everyone on the map, not proceeding until everyone votes or the timer runs down. Then we all have to confirm that we wish to continue, again waiting until every last person has pressed the button or another timer. Then it's time to vote for the next activity! Just had a nice race and want another track? Too bad, your options are these four DMs, a VS mission, and parachuting. Refresh doesn't help. Did everyone vote? No? Well then watch this timer... Free roam is okay, but it gets boring after a while. And where the hell are heists?

Not worth it for letting brand owners have any say about the game's content. Rockstar's been keeping a lot of the same fake and parody brands going for over 10 years (depicted across 30 years of in-game chronology) so it's kind of missing the point to think real brands would be an improvement.

The mods are so limited though. You can only add a few HD car models before the game goes into full herpa derp mode with blurry and missing textures.

If you stick with weapons, HD Store Fronts, and stuff like LCPDFR you're fine.. You're extremely limited though on the texture replacements. The game engine just don't handle HD textures well no matter the hardware you have.

I have SLI Twin Frozr GTX 680's and car packs are out of the question for me.

Hair + beard. Cranston adopted a significant modification to his daily 'look' for the show, in that he shaved and grew a goatee to make the character more sinister/intimidating/severe.

Great for the consumer, shiatty for companies that take the 'consumer is the enemy' approach to marketing and software development and gets in bed with one of the most unpopular and poorly implemented DRM scheme of the era.  That sort of decision making is also the kind where they some how think they have to support all the computers from Bob's office hand me down sporting a P4, winxp and a GT210 right up to the PC master race's highly customized and powerful rigs.

Part of it is also age.  Cranston has been around longer, and say what you will but wrinkles give a face more character.  They can be emphasized to make him look one way, or minimized to make him look another.  Heisenberg Cranston had the wrinkles amped up to max sinister, but a little makeup and lighting and he looks completely different.

Aaron Paul on the other hand is still young enough he can pass as just out of high school.  The range just isn't there.  Once he gets older I think he'll be better off for changing his look.

Hahahahahaha oh god, are you serious?

The game isn't available for PC, so you can't 'see for yourself'. I've been using the same 1000$ computer since 2012. I can max EVERYTHING I have ever thrown at it. It's all storebought components, no tweaking or overclocking, and I'm willing to bet it will last me till the end of this console generation without any upgrades, unless this is another freakishly long generation, then I may have to upgrade after only (shudder) 5-7 years.

That said, no, it probably is not 'blowing away' PC games when PC games have comparable software and hardware; the PS4 is simply an old PC in hardware terms.  Most games are set up specifically to run on consoles then ported to PC. Half the time you get a native better graphics mod on the PC version.

I'm not a 'glorious PC master race' member. I have my PS3 and enjoy the shiat out of console games (I have owned every console to date, usually 2-3 times, except the ps4/x1, and I'm only waiting on there to be a library of games worth playing before I buy one or the other), but anyone who says 'this console game totally blows away PC games!!!' and then proceeds to lay out the same tired cliches (graphics cards, overclock, hell, you should have thrown a jab at apple's 1 button mouse from the 90's in there, it would have been newer) is clearly an idiot.

How is that rude? It's an observation that is true of pretty much every video game related thread on Fark. Regardless of what the topic is, strict PC loyalists will always try to hijack the thread and make it about themselves or their gaming rig. I play PC Games, I play Xbox games, I play Playstation games, I play tabletop games. I don't think it makes me better than anyone, they're video games. They're entertainment. If it brings you joy, mission accomplished. If it doesn't, find something that does and play that. Console/PC pissing matches aren't just boring, they're obnoxious and completely played out. It's predictable and it happens in every video game thread. It's time to move on and actually use this thread to discuss either the video or game in question. So that being said: I wish they would make the Iron Man mod of GTAIV a stand alone title. Freaking amazing.

Yes, I am serious. I didn't say it was "blowing away" PCs, just that for a console game produced during the start of a new console generation, it has already managed to produced graphical effects and framerates comparable to many PC games, if not better than some. Also, how was my bringing up mods, overclocking, etc out of bounds? Half the time when the Glorious Master PC race brags about how a game looks, it's been modded within an inch of it's life (Skyrim) or only playable on the most decked out PC (Crysis). Comparing that to inFamous SS being able to keep up without resorting to either is certainly worth pointing out.

Well, since

A) SS isn't available on PC, it's a piss poor comparison, since we don't have anything to compare it to;
B) Those are nice straw men you're setting up, so I'm just going to let you finish jousting at them I guess

I can't possibly speak to what 'every' PC player ever says.  And the point was you set up PC gaming to be some sort of horribly cripplingly difficult thing where you have to drop 400$ every month on a new part and have to tweak and fiddle with hardware and settings and crap.

I countered with 'no, you do not, because I have not, ever'.  I bought a mid-range PC 2-3 years ago and it's worked flawlessly since, with no alterations to anything, no 'cooling system' etc.  Point in fact I'd have been using the same desktop for 5+ years except I did upgrade the video card in the old one, and in doing so I destroyed my CPU, so I just built a new desktop.

As for mods: you typically do not see player-created graphics improvements mods, like an HD textures pack. Usually those come baked in from the developer. Skyrim did it. So you're just all over the place.  Oh, and to direct quote you:

FuryOfFirestorm: The frame rate and particle physics on inFamous Second Son are even putting most PC games to shame right now


That's what I took objection to. You can't say 'this puts PCs to shame' then go on about how 'hard' it is to play PC games, and not have someone go 'wtf?', since none of that is true.

kroonermanblack: A) SS isn't available on PC, it's a piss poor comparison, since we don't have anything to compare it to;


Since when does there have to be a direct game to game comparison to show that the PS4 is capable of having games that can keep up with PC games? People compared Genesis to Super Nintendo all the time, even though their game libraries were wildly different. On the other hand, it's not fair to compare PC games to console games when the console game is being compared to a PC game that is being graphically modded to death. That's like comparing Babe Ruth to Barry Bonds. Both are pro baseball players, but one is juicing to improve his performance.

kroonermanblack: then go on about how 'hard' it is to play PC games, and not have someone go 'wtf?', since none of that is true.

Hard? I guess you can call downloading a mod or installing a new graphics card "extra effort", but I wouldn't call it "hard". I wasn't trying to imply that. I'm not trying to say that PC sucks, or that the PS4 blows away ALL PC games, just that it's getting very close to matching SOME PC games and exceeding SOME others. Considering that consoles don't really reach their full potential until the end of the generation's lifespan, to have a console start out so strong techwise is admittedly impressive.
