Half-Life 2: Graphics tribute
I love HDR. These are the same models and almost same textures as HL2, and it makes so much of a difference...and I just love this shot so much. (Taken on a 7800 GT, not mine though) Just like to clear up some misbeliefs. I hate ALL consoles. I like PCs,

This ytmnd wins. Why? Because it's image and sound, and it's image and sound which has an impact on you. Ytmnd is getting closer and closer to simply being micromedia flash with the new sync in and crap which basically just makes it like a flash movie, so ytmnd has no originality. But this is good. This is great.

HDR is going to push it to the limit. (I wish your text weren't obscuring your nice picture. Maybe you could just overlay some text on the image in a less conspicuous spot instead. Oh, and center it, don't tile.)

The source engine is absolute sh*t. HDR usually makes levels light up brighter than the sun. I love how you are easily wowed by a lighting trick.

"Screenshot of HL2 + Bashing something you can't afford = 5?" - To get a computer to render that quality at a consistant framerate costs come big bucks. easily 3-4x the ammount of a PS3.
June 16th, 2006

I don't really get the slam, but it's pissing off fanboys like Tac0-Suprem3, so I give it a 5. Wii will rock you.

MorphingJar, you can build a PC to render a mere HL2 game smoothly for about $400. So more expensive than a PS3? No. The game still doesn't look as good regardless, but PC is the powerhouse either way.

"The source engine is absolute sh*t. HDR usually makes levels light up brighter than the sun. I love how you are easily wowed by a lighting trick." -- Alright, you can diss Source when you write one that's better. Let's see it? That's what I thought. Great Site. Scoring: 3 - Huge HL2 fan. 1 - Sony bash, instant win. 1 - Great screenshot. Good timing. Woulda been better with the hud off, but nonetheless awesome.

That's awesome. Screw the downvoters, they have no idea how complicated and advanced HDR is.
June 16th, 2006

i always turn off HDR. it looks cool but its like staring into the sun, insta-pain. anyhow just a rendering trick nothin' special to it. I'd take dynamic shadows any day.

Gyro567- Even if the engine is 2 years old, HL2's graphics are the most impressive from an artistic standpoint. I still don't see a game that actually looks more realistic.

I may be defending the PS3 but I'm sure as hell not siding with them. How about we wait till all three are out?
June 17th, 2006

Maybe if you went outside once in a while to watch a sunset you'd see how realistic this is. Also, HL2 is impressive because these graphics are superior to Oblivion, and yet it runs at a MUCH, MUCH better framerate than Oblivion. Valve made the most efficient engine EVAR. I'm not a console fan at all, I love PCs. I bought my $800 pc because it can browse the web, let me chat with friends, edit together videos, PLAY AWESOME GAMES ON A SIDENOTE, and can be upgraded for the future.

The reason why the 'Rendered today, Sony' is funny is not because of the price. No. It's because during the Technical Demonstration at E3, they diddn't have it live, they had a pre-rendered demo of it. A movie if you will.

Sony should have seen Crysis at E3. That's why PCs are superior.

Pissing off fanboys like Tac-0-Priceless. I have nothing against the PS3 tho, I just like this because of the music.
