And I hate carrying torches in any game, so maybe I'd rather have shittier lighting anyway.
Hahaha. I like you. You win this thread :)
@darji: "SO you kind of believe that you get a patch with better textures, real time shadows, better lighting and so on? Man I wish I could still dream like that. Not gonna happen. And I really hope this is just the console Version that looks like that...."
I don't believe anything, I was just tossing around theories.
Also it doesn't matter to me what the console version looks like since I'm getting it for PC :P
@tobako: The thing is though, the "final copy" is only theoretical anymore. A graphical improvement patch come a day or week after the game is out. the Souls games have always been a bit iffy with the frame-rate, and the preview build lighting and graphics may have been causing issues they are currently working on fixing. A "final build" or "final copy" only matters in terms of "does the game work and is it in a playable state." Even the people reviewing the game may not currently be playing the game in it's graphical final state right now.
I could of course also be completely wrong and maybe this absolutely is how the game will look on consoles and a lot of the preview build stuff is how it will look on PC. OR maybe the preview stuff is all bullshit. Who knows but From really? So yeah, "wait and see" seems like a good plan.
I would also like to point to everyone that day one patches for games are a thing and everyone is grudging up these opinions that the graphics are horrible before day 1 because some people got the game early. Now whether or not the graphics will be fixed or remain the same after day 1 I don't know, but jumping to conclusions of what a game will look like before it's even released seems very flaky to me.
That being said, if you want to cancel your pre-order then you should do it. Wait until the game is out, look at videos of the game after it's release on day 1, read reviews and pay attention to the atmosphere and graphics portions. Take into the account person who is reviewing the game and see if they feel the same way about this stuff as you do, and make an educated decision on whether or not you should spend your money your the game. But DON'T judge things about a game when you don't even know if this is a build release. If you are going to make an educated decision, then make the most educated decision possible, not an "on the fly because I feel it's not worth it" one.
@tobako: He asked you to cite the impression (as in give a source of where those words you posted came from), not to jump and avoid citing it entirely by saying "just go watch the video."
@bocam: Where you get it from is certainly important, but I was wondering more along the lines of how deep into the game is it. If it's a ring you can only get next to the end of the game it's kind of useless, but if I can get it relatively early on then I wouldn't have to waste effigy's like vanity candy :P
