oh jesus christ its happening

oh jesus christ its happening

just a heads up

this blog been on a kind of hiatus because I got all fucked up on RE4 PC. Maybe that’s been like a bummer to the two people who actually like this blog. Sorry! 

Dark Souls 2 comes out in two days and I am moving in seven days. 

so don’t expect this blog to be updated for shit until like april.

Until then, have you checked out the archives? I mean, there are only three good videogame blogs on tumblr and this is one of them. Take a look at the older posts, I guarantee there is rad shit that you have slept on.

Just sayin’

notes on RE4: Ultimate Edition or whatever the hell it’s called 
the HD textures are kind of shitty looking and it seems like they only replace maybe half the textures in any given scene. Very inconsistent and jarring.
60 fps is very nice but there seem to be some optimization issues. 20-30 frame drops around certain alpha effects like light shafts through windows and fog in the woods. frame drops cause the audio to desync though that’s only really noticeable in cutscenes and ideally you skip those. 
Also anything with the steam overlay will fuck the framerate up! Including receiving IM messages
M-KB controls suck, feel sluggish and unresponsive. No surprise there.
aside from a few technical issues that might just be my computer and will hopefully be ironed out soon, it’s pretty rad.

that noirlac guy has a version of this photoset floating around but the sprites are absolutely fucking butchered. because I’m a nice guy, I made a version that isn’t garbage.
