As for the nerf, I never heard them mention this. If you have proof, please provide it was the PS3. I'm not taking your word, only facts with a source.
Yoshi specifically said that PS3 draw distance is not as high and that textures were lowered to accommodate. I'm not gonna dig for it, but this was stated at or around E3 2012. I remember because I got smoked on these forums for making a joke about how PS4 would be announced shortly after the release date for 2.0 on PS3. Jokes on who?
So because you feel FFXIV's graphics aren't as good on PC as they should be, does that mean you're not going to play? I'm asking this because of your negative attitude about the game. It's like you want to make other people disgruntled and quit.
I never stated or implied that and as a matter of fact, several times just in this thread alone I stated otherwise. I don't care if the game looks like cubeworld. For me, it's all about gameplay.
I don't have a negative attitude about the game. Facts are facts. If the word 'nerfed' carries a negative connotation for you then there's really nothing I can do about that. Would you prefer I said that the quality was reduced? Essentially, it means the same thing. I don't even know where the idea comes from that I want people to quit.
We really need to drop this elitist attitude that a game must be maxed specs of a monster gaming rig otherwise it's not worth playing. I begin to wonder that people are only upset because they invented far too much money into their rig thus the desire for more performance.
What attitude? The only reason max specs was brought up was because the easiest way to see how different 1.0 and 2.0 are is to run them both at max settings. The money I personally invested was well spent because I spent most of my time playing other games. If you ever checked into the computer building or upgrades threads you will usually find me there telling people to get a PS3. Yet somehow, I'm hating on PS3? Izzatso?
If you can't see the difference in detail and shadows between the images from 1.0 to 2.0 I really don't know what to tell you. There is no image comparison I can add here because even if I did, you wouldn't be able to discern any difference anyway. Edited, Aug 14th 2013 12:59am by FilthMcNasty
