    This looks insanely good. I think in 2 more console generations, we wont be able to tell the difference between high quality cinematics and gameplay.

    A Rift Apart looks better graphically, has faster loading times, less irritating Clank sections that don't require as much footwork and retreading, and the low gravity areas are neat. But man do I miss hoverboard/bike racing, space battles, a decent arena, and the overall feel of innovation and trying out new things to give us more to do outside the story. Plus being able to play without the game corrupting my save or hardfreezing my console, damn there are some nasty bugs.

    I honestly feel that if Insomniac remade Ratchet and Clank again in 2021 for the PS4 it would've looked much much better, I mean look at Spiderman PS4, the level of detail on that game is almost comparable to Rift Apart, I mean sure that fur may not have been as detailed on the PS4, but the clothes and other textures would've been of a much higher level of detail

    The eye reflection is not a cubemap. I could see characters reflected in their eyes perfectly clean.

  45. Terrence Vergauwen

    Terrence VergauwenPred 5 dnevi

    Usually, if the reflection is grainy and has no anti-aliasing, it's a raytraced reflection... If it's smooth/blurry and anti-aliased, it's a cube- or spherical environment map. Current new-gen HW raytracing isn't powerful enough yet to do anti-aliased raytraced reflections and true glossy raytraced reflections (although it's possible to raytrace the reflection first and then apply a blur effect on the result, which is what I think they did with clank's metal body, they raytraced the environment reflections and then applied an anisotropic blur effect to make it look like glossy, anisotropic (eg the metal is polished in a direction), shiny metal.

    The audio comparison is kind of difficult to compare because the dual sense controller adds so much to it that its hard to recreate it for a youtube video. I personally was surprised at how much the ps5 controller adds to the game and Insomniac did a great job with it. Most games the "rumble" feels like an annoyance but Insomniac some how made it feel like a natural part of the game. Insomniac really knows how to take advantage of a system's strengths and I can't wait to play their future titles, especially the next Spider-man game.

    the sound difference makes the remake sound way more chunkier and more satisfying for a shootemup game, but the RA sounds more like how I would expect the guns to sound and are more subtle, there's more finesse to their sound. interesting break down. they are both gorgeous games and RA really takes a big step further

    This goes pretty of topic but my favorite Anime/Cartoon ever gets a video game adaptation. My expectations are super low becuse Anime Adaptations ate usually not that good. The screen shoots from the anouncement showed how outdatet thr graphics are and one thing the show did really well is beeing beautiful to look at. When I look at "a Rift apart" I wish Insomniac would make the Videogame adaptation. They seem to knoe how to make beautiful cartoony games. I know the artstyle from Made in Abyss is different but still. And from what I heard there games are fun to play as well.

    The 2016 game is hardly a great example of what the PS4 is capable of, I've seen tones of games that do a better job. It actually looks pretty bad to me, the amount of polygons on Ratchet is pretty low. Look at how good KH3 looked for example, or even RD2 oooohhh and HZD was increadible too.
