Guys! We need "Favorites" tab here on 80.lv
My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!
During the E3 2016 event Nintendo has finally shown us a glimpse of the next Zelda game, which is actually called The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild. We had a chance to check out some of the environments and enjoy the visual style of the game.
New Zelda is a very stylised game. Nintendo went into great depths to optimise the visuals and figure out how to make the open world run at a decent frame rate and still look beautiful. Overall the palette seems very warm, light, pastel-like. The dev played a lot with the scale, so the whole world seems incredibly big and there are hundreds of small regions to explore. Plus, all the elements are interactive. You can cut wood, turn water into ice, hunt, fight enemies, throw stones and so on.
In many ways Breath of The Wild reminds us of The Shadow of the Colossus. It’s a great looking game with new exciting gameplay. Looking forward to tell you more about it.
