More particles and all that is nice, but I rather play it now that in a month.

@RsistncE: "You can turn it off" is probably not a good response to a feature theyre promoting heavily

#9 Posted by CheapPoison (727 posts) -

I am a pc gamer.... but some of those comparison shots are just stupid. Seems that there is just more stuff for the sake of more stuff.

Especially the fight with catwoman or the hallway.

HAHAH, doesn't mean fuck for me, as I am ati user.

Thanks. I'm waiting /

Dude wtf are you talking about, there are tonnes of games out there with PhysX. This isn't a special feature implemented just for this game. Hell, even the first Arkham Asylum had it. Either way, it's the DX11 features that will make this game a lot better than the console version, just like the first one was.

Let me guess though, I can tell by your hate that you're a console gamer, right?

#13 Edited by 1Gorebash1 (73 posts) -

@CheapPoison:

Aye, almost all that video was generic footage. The mist/fog stuff was nice but other than that, much like as it was used in Arkham Asylum, that extra processing goes towards shifting a million bits of useless paper round on the floor.

Also this

Why wait when you can experience the game 2 times? That's what I did for Batman Arkham Asylum(got it on PS3 then PC). It's kinda a great way to experience games when possible.

#15 Posted by DeeGee (2119 posts) -

Looks like the console version.

#16 Posted by BonOrbitz (2182 posts) -

That looks great and you can see how physX contributes. I'm glad I'm getting the game free with my GTX 570!

Too bad Skyrim comes out the week before; the reason I built my new rig. See ya sometime in 2012, Bats.

#17 Posted by Deusx (1903 posts) -

More particles is allways nice. Wow you people are really cynical don't you? Relax a bit it's just a video showing some cool stuff. If you don't like that then just buy the console version.

#18 Posted by SASnake (324 posts) -

Holy crap! All those added particles really changes the gameplay!....

....yeah, Ill play it now.

#19 Posted by End_Boss (3220 posts) -

This could have been really cool if it was implemented a little more tastefully. In many of the sections shown, it seemed like they cranked the PhysX all the way to fuck and gone just because they could. The swirling mist looks fantastic, and more subtle effects like that one would be a welcome change from "HOLY SHIT LOOK AT ALL THIS PAPER OH FUCK I CAN'T MOVE WITHOUT A PAPERCUT."

I was just thinking the same thing. Christ, people, just enjoy some nice things in life.

#21 Posted by English (159 posts) -

Looks good, though I think I may have to upgrade from my GTX 260 for this, skyrim and battlefield 3. I know enabling physx in arkham asylum brought me down to around 5fps at times in the fight with riddler.

#22 Edited by DonPixel (2585 posts) -

I'm playing PS3 one, the game looks awesome Unreal Tech for the win!

Good news it does looks good in all platforms

#23 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

Good. I already have the 360 version and plan to get the PC one too just because I can.

#24 Posted by Zippedbinders (983 posts) -

Goddamn, did someone just piss in Giantbomb's collective coffee this morning? Cynicism everywhere. Its an extra feature that adds to the visual flair of the game, no need to act all high and mighty because you don't want it in the versions you're already playing.

People need to relax and just play their games.

Alice: Madness Returns maxed out with PhysX on, KILLS my 570, on a 22 inch resolution... 
 Sorry bro, you wont max out batman on a 24 inch monitor with physX on and get a proper FPS.

Who wants different gameplay? Arkham City's gameplay is great.. 
 
This is change in the graphical department. So while both of us will play the same game, we'll be enjoying some visual goodness that you only dream of :)

Guys, they're console douches who are trying to downplay the fact that the game is going to look, run and play better on the PC. Let them have their little toy boxes, all that matters is that we're going to enjoy the best version of the game.

Needs more lens of truth action, i don't notice any big difference to be honest... its looks the same as the consoles.

#30 Posted by scarace360 (4828 posts) -

well thats all well and good but why one month. Fucking hate waiting.

#31 Posted by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

Sour grapes much, GB. It looks great. Sorry you don't want to play the best looking version. Tell yourself the added stuff makes it look worse.

I think they think a lot of people who would pirate the PC version will now buy the console version instead of waiting. Because console piracy doesn't exist. lol

That's my theory anyway. They could be adding content but I doubt it.

Eh? It's physX Nvidia's in house physics engine, why would it look different? It's the tessellation that will make it look so much better.

btw console kiddies, let's just also ignore the fact that the game is selling for much cheaper on the pc.

People will always pirate your game no matter what protection it has or what its on it will always happen so the best you can do is try to convince them to not do it.

Everyone keeps saying it will look better, and it doesn't look any noticeably better. I rather just play it now on console rather than wait on pc, which i do play on too :P

Yeah, totally doesn't look any better.

#39 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

@RsistncE: Agreed, it doesn't. Not by any great margin.

#40 Posted by matthias2437 (985 posts) -

I love games with extra particles and trash/paper. Because I am an elitist that knows only people with relatively high end nVidia gfx will be able to experience them.

This threat is like 10 mins old and you already have 6 post spitting the same nonsense

You either:

1.- Have an ego as thin as a smelly fart

2.- You are a sensitive 12 year old fanboy

3.- You are kind of retarded

My take: you are a mix of 1,2 and 3

#43 Edited by thornie_delete (436 posts) -

Cool.  I was exactly surprised to see the game cheaper than the console version as well.  Seems like lately every big console game has been $59.99 on PC.

#44 Posted by bybeach (4775 posts) -

I thought this was going to be a LoL thread. And I am waiting for the pc version. This makes me feel a bit better, i think it will present the game as more realized. But I would play on a console gladly from what I have seen, if that was the only choice. It's not like it's comparing Ps2 to GTX 580 sli /direct X 11, the present consoles are 'good enough'.

Yeah, totally has nothing to do with little console kids coming in and trashing this version of the game even though it's going to be cheaper, will run better, and will look better. Get the fuck over it and refocus your energy the douches that started this shit.

Also it's pretty clear that:

If you can't see the massive difference that tessellation makes in this screenshot then either you're blind, have no fucking clue what tessellation is, or are being intentionally ignorant.

#47 Posted by thornie_delete (436 posts) -
@xhavoc86: Capturing a smooth 60 FPS expereince with higher res textures is impossible to convey over a YT video.  You have to sit down and play it for yourself to experience it.

Looks like Batman: Arkham City: Particle Effects Edition. I just can't wait for Batman: Arkham City: Particle Effects Edition: Game of the Year Edition: 3D Edition

Yeah, totally doesn't look any better.

Compare the two pictures posted in this thread. The tree looks much more detailed. On consoles the texture looks completely flat.

@RsistncE: Think what you want (you clearly not good at thinking anyway), I'm not mad no meme is going to convince me otherwise.

I found funny thou I have 3 times more steam achievements than you.. so nice fanboy you are.
