    preach brother, i'm glad you're down for this. it's gotta be said just to explain WHY I think it sucks: when the game alternates between 2d/3d, you're stuck with the ability to approach the foreground. imagine playing mario and having the option of missing perfectly good jumps on the horizontal axis, because you pulled mario toward the screen. that's idiotic design. what's worse, you're stuck with an outdated 3 life system so you're not only fucking up good jumps you're having to do the exact same thing all over again when you inevitably "game over" due to the game's stupid design. then there's the ridiculously unenjoyable pixel-collisions where you feel like you're barely touching things and having catastrophic failure. there are a million non-communicated intricacies related to basic things like controls, which should be a non-starter for a platforming game with relatively simple concepts. I could go on and on about how and why this game sucks, but it really does need to be said that it sucks.

    Right? Loved that game as a kid. Kinda sucks now IMO. Didn't find it enjoyable at all.

    Fair enough, but badwater is a tf2 map, tf2 doesn't take it self seriously, its absurdist. Overwatch is supposed to be grounded in reality, no matter how much science fantasy they throw at it, its not parody of the real world, it meant to be an idealistic future. I appreciate @Pericolos0 going into detail into how such a visual error occurred and the process they went through making Route 66. Also badwater, like most TF2 maps can get away with the ridiculous nature of the layout because its set in an industrial sprawl, plus it has plenty of inaccessible areas to show off the world around it which helps make it more real despite the absurdist nature of the game.

    OFC it's a valid criticism, it's just his way of developing his point that makes him looks overly pretentious, each game has its own flaw, balancing gameplay and art has never been an easy task, especially when there's a huge time constrains behind it, and I think Overwatch is doing a great job at it, now ofc I always thought route 66 never really made any sense, but look at Badwater for example, its layout make no sense at all either, yet it's one of the best map ever created imo. Gameplay > Art > Logic.

    TBH, it's valid criticism and definitely stuff you should think about as a LD and env artist. Looking at it from the outside, some design decisions that were made on a fast evolving project can seem strange or non-obvious. Things you wouldn't do when working on something yourself or on your own time. Art wise, it may seem that doing a vista takes more time than doing a road, but under gameplay constraints a vista is much much easier because it fully blocks off the gameplay space and solves a lot of potential issues on a game that has characters that can fly or climb up walls. Route66 did actually at some point make more sense layout wise, as the warehouse started out as a tunnel. with another open end at the final point. You can still see this in Nick Carver's concept art here: This was the original end of the map, and I even had a vista blocked out for it, with a road going off into the distance. However, the map had gameplay problems and design felt the player spawn should be behind the capture point, so we changed that part. At this point we were close to the deadline so it wasn't possible to go back and change another part of the map to fix it up. Going back and changing something that is already art-finished is a big cost in game dev, especially if it potentially opens up a bunch of other issues that will then need more play testing. At this point, people already liked the map, and ultimately gameplay comes first so you can only do so much as an artist trying to make things make sense. There's a story like this for pretty much every overwatch map

    Ok, please tell me if you find a reason for it. Do you need to replace 2 files when you verify integrity of game files under local files in options for cs:go. And does it help to lower the texture quality under video settings in cs:go? I'm maybe starting to see a pattern. And thanks for the feedback zombi, will fix the B-truck issue.

    Overwatch

    Route 66 is one of my favorite maps from Overwatch, when I played the game did I care that the road led to a warehouse? No because I was having fun, because its a fun level. Literally the only complaint I have about the theme for the map is just that, its not a real road and it doesnt make a lot sense when you think about it. I dont consider the absurd walkways all around the map a negative because its consistent across most maps and thematically matches the town, they arnt likely to actually exist but they are believable. Aside from my first post about Havana, I dont think ive been that unreasonable in asking why they do things like that, why there are just a few glaring flaws that make the map unbelievable when you think about it. The game isnt absurdist like TF2, it trys to keep a sense of being grounded in the real world (despite the electric monkeys and engineer hamsters that jump around miles in the air) we are supposed to care about whats happening in this universe the game is set in, things are at the very least supposed to be plausible.

    PlayStation 5 Reveal

    https://amp.businessinsider.com/should-i-wait-for-playstation-5-2019-4 This article makes a good point in regards to PS5 price, I bet that thing will cost at least $450 but wouldn't surprised me if it ended up costing $500. And it could very well only come out in late 2020, it's either March or November. We'll see, I just hope sony doesn't pull a "ps3" all over again. Anyway, a used ps4 is like 100 bucks on ebay. Couldn't you play re2 on pc? Or it's too demanding for your rig?

    It’s not a bad point per se but it’s a game and a pretty silly game at that, the emphasis is more on the mood and evoking the sensation of being in a theme parky attraction rather than a realistic place. I think you make an OK point, part of environment art is not being totally lazy about tying it to layout but earnestly critiquing a great, fun level like Route 66 by pointing out that it doesn’t really resemble a road is bordering on copy pasta. I’m here for it though, keep going, petty criticism is still criticism and it can be pretty amusing to read.

    Its true ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ How much time could it take, you either work on the vista or you work on a road, both take time both and I would presume would be satisfying to work on. I would argue a vista takes more time because you have to work on a unique skyline, as apposed to a road where you can copy and paste some background buildings. Its really just down to the map maker and what they like more, clearly whom ever it is that actually does the art pass prefers the Vistas, if it was me I would do background roads or side paths, but im not the guy working for the AAA game studio, im a hobbyist at best and I dont want to tell these guys how to do their job, I just wanted to know why they do things the way they do.

    Yeah it’s more my fault for waiting until this awkward moment where I have to decide qtheher or not to play some great games on a console that will very quickly be replaced after I get it. Shouldn’t haven’t waited so long in the first place, snooze ya lose. Definitely learned my lesson though, PS5 on day one. Good to hear yours is still going strong, I guess not every console is an Xbox 360

    Mmm, the ps4 came out in 2013, exactly 5 years ago. My launch day PS4 still works great since day one. (I gifted it to my brother, and got myself a PS4-pro to Play RDR2 in superpample mode). Anyway, that's half a decade with literally daily use, if anything for YouTube, Netflix or spotify, and when I say daily I mean around the clock, my wife is home a lot specially these last 2 years and that fucking thing was always working. Even the original controllers still work, although I ended up getting two red controllers cos I'm a fancy fuck. Not a bad deal for 350 bucks every 5 years, which is more or less the price of a decent graphics cars which you also upgrade every 5 years on avg as well anyway, right?

    What have you watched recently?

    I watched Shahzam. Somehow, despite all the odds, they turned even this nothing bore of a character into a great movie. It seems Hollywood just has movies figured out and down to a science. Almost all of these superhero movies feel the same and yet don’t suck and get the right laughs at the right moments to keep you engaged. It’s kinda crazy. I’m convinced they could make a movie about literally anything at this point, run it through their algorithm and come out with something decently watchable for just under two hours.

    I was all ready to go out and buy a ps4 to get resident evil and now it’s like why do I even fucking bother when the new one is coming out. Consoles fucking suck. Should I even get a ps5 when they all blow right on launch and you have to wait two years for them to work the bugs out? I can’t deal y’all
