    What happened to Volumetric Shadow Casting?

    Volumetric shadows produce much better results, and yet they have been replaced by shadow mapping. Volumetric shadows are more scaleable without loss detail and don't have those odd pixel jaggies you currently see with shadow maps. I can understand pre-baked shadow maps being used for large...

    Tales of Vesperia kind of sucks...

    Tales of Vesperia has been talked up by some as a great game. Thus I bought it to give it a try as I liked what I got put of the demo, but now I'm finding it very hard to enjoy this game for a large number of reasons. The graphics are extremely bland 95% of the time as was Blue Dragon. The...

    I am so tired of good games getting bad reviews!
