Yes and no. It was well-optimised and had decent graphics but the problem with it was that a lot of the cutscenes were pre-rendered at console quality (720p, low resolution graphics, no anti-aliasing, etc) and it was incredible jarring going from 2560x1600 maxed out to ultra-low res 720p. At first I thought the game was broken.

I believe the game was also loading assets in the background during those cutscenes.

And I can completely understand the necessity of that on consoles but there's no excuse for it on PC.

Err? The majority of people still use hard drives, and the assets on PC are much better quality.

I rather disagree.

Anyone else find that trailer incredibly annoying to watch?

Games like Far Cry 3 and Skyrim do just fine without the need for constant loading screens. And even if one were to accept that the pre-rendered cutscenes were required—which I don't—there is absolutely NO excuse for them being such pathetically low quality. Most YouTube videos are higher quality, which really is saying something. They were used to mask the performance limitations of consoles and should have been rendered in-game on PC.

Skyrim sure has high quality assets yeahhhhh

(and IIRC the only cutscenes in FC3 at all were the intro and ending, don't know though.)

Far Cry 3 had plenty of cutscenes and had much better graphics, all without needing to use pre-rendered cutscenes. And you deliberately ignored the other part of my post.

I do ignore what I couldn't care less about, true.
