What you’re seeing here is a process known as “scanning”, or “photogrammetry”. It’s not new, having already been used to generate the landscapes in games like Star Wars: Battlefront, but as you’ll see, as the technology involved (and the skill of artists) advances, so too do the results.
Good news, PS4 and Xbox One owners. Thanks to the latest Fallout 4 patch, the console versions of the game are about on par with the PC version running on high.
Here’s a trailer for Brutal, one of the newest games shown off during the PlayStation Experience event in San Francisco today. The game looks like ASCII art, which is a pretty unusual art style, especially for 2015! But that’s exactly what makes it seem so cool.
Even the post-apocalypse can be beautiful, under the right circumstances.
After wowing us with his gorgeous (and still unreleased) graphics mod for Grand Theft Auto V, Martin Bergman applies his Toddyhancer tweaks to Star Wars: Battlefront with ridiculous results.
So you’ve got a brand spanking new iPad Pro. You’re probably going to want to take advantage of the 12.9-inch display, the four speakers, and the souped up A9x processor. We’ve made a list of the coolest, most beautiful apps you can get, whether you’re a designer or just someone who appreciates big screens.
A simple tweak gives the world of Dark Souls an exceptionally eerie quality.
Nvidia’s graphics lineup could be deemed complete in the enthusiast front. Starting at $200 with the GeForce GTX 960 and finishing at $1,000 with the 3072 CUDA core monster that is the GTX Titan X. Hardcore gamers with cash to spare will arguably say the finish line isn’t crossed until you hit two or even three Titan…
Back in 2012, we took a look at Separable Subsurface Scattering (SSSS), a piece of graphics tech that looked very, very pretty. It looks a lot prettier in 2015.
The PC version of GTA V might be just around the horizon, but PC gamers are still happily modding GTA IV to make it look incredible.
Using more than two monitors used to be a luxury for those with the biggest PC building budgets. These days, large, high-resolution displays are affordable, and graphics cards are more powerful than ever. If the thought of gaming (or working) on three displays at once entices you, here's how to make it happen.
"Cute" is not normally a word I'd use to describe Grand Theft Auto...unless it has been miniaturized. Then GTA becomes so adorable you could just eat it up.
Given what I've heard so far about the third game in BioWare's fantasy epic, I'm of the opinion that you should play Dragon Age: Inquisition. In case you need a platform qualifier to that statement, IGN has made a lovely graphics comparison video.
We've seen comparison shots, which put the new Pokémon remakes next to the original games. Now, you can see how the graphics compare in motion—something that really highlights the difference that the new X & Y engine makes.
What's the point of having all sorts of advanced tech and weaponry if it doesn't look good? Thankfully, regardless of what platform you're playing the new Call of Duty on, the game looks pretty great.
I've owned a grand total of two gaming laptops. It was depressing how quickly they aged. But the new Alienware 13 may not suffer the same fate. It's the first gaming laptop that lets you connect a external desktop graphics card for freaking awesome, truly unheard-of speed.
