Mirror's Edge was born to be high-res. The latest shots up at Dead End Thrills show Dice's first-person runner looking sharper than ever. Pleeeease don't let Mirror's Edge 2 suck, pleeeeease don't let Mirror's Edge 2 suck...
Just weeks after the game came out, the PC version of Watch Dogs can already look a lot better than it did at release. That's thanks largely to TheWorse Mod, which unlocks additional graphics options for the game.
I never could get all that excited about Rage (this was at least partly due to that terrible name), but I did appreciate how good it often looked. Especially those nice, oddly bulbous character models—not everyone liked them, but I did.
Killer is Pretty: There are a bunch of new games featured at the screenshot site Dead End Thrills, including last year's Killer is Dead. Turns out, that game's stylish art looks incredibly nice in high-res.
Looking Good, Lara: The latest batch of HD PC shots up at Dead End Thrills focus on Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider reboot, and are looking mighty fine.
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends, racing through super high-res backdrops!
Yesterday, I spent an inordinate amount of time messing around with the nifty new photo mode in Infamous: Second Son. It's surprisingly rare that we get that kind of opportunity to slow way down and really appreciate how beautiful video games can be.
BioShock Infinite has never really been wanting in the art department. So what better game to document with gorgeous, high-res screenshots?
Grand Theft Auto IV may be almost six years old, but its age doesn't stop folks from doing all sorts of amazing stuff with it. Take, for example, this excellent noire "walkabout series" by gaming's best screenshot artist, Dead End Thrills. The game looks gorgeous like this, no?
If the best video-game screenshot artist around wants to spend a bunch of weeks cataloguing Dark Souls, that's just fine with me.
Dark Souls is a beautiful game in more ways than one. It's a terrific feat of design, for starters. But it's also just lovely to look at, if you can relax for five seconds and take in the view.
DayZ isn't really a conventionally beautiful game, but it does have an austere quality that I find appealing. That quality is on full display in the latest shots from Duncan Harris at Dead End Thrills, who has been running the game in offline mode to capture the cleanest images.
"Some modders are making Morrowind in the Skyrim engine," they said. It's looking really good. And I listened to them, I did. But it wasn't until I saw these screens that I believed it.
It's hard to believe DmC came out this year… last January feels like a hundred years ago. Ninja Theory's game boasted their usual striking visual style, as demonstrated in these new shots from Dead End Thrills.
Nope, these aren't photos of actual planes. They're video game screenshots.
This isn't quite a Last-Gen Heroes entry, but it could be, since Ninja Theory's Enslaved: Odyssey to the West deserves some retrospective love. It was one of the most surprising games of the last several years, and also one of the most beautiful.
The Space May Be Dead, But It's Still Pretty. The latest from Dead End Thrills: Grandiose shots of Dead Space 3.
To this day, Batman: Arkham City remains a visually striking game. The grand, gothic feel of the comics was well-captured by art director David Hego and his team at Rocksteady. But I've never seen the game look quite like this.
