    You have sharp eyes Kez. I just noticed that the screenshots were lacking AF :3eyes:

    I always have 16x AF set in my driver panel anyway. No reason not to as it's practically free with no performance cost..

    Indeed and that's sad that more and more games don't offer such a basic feature...AC4 for example didn't have 16xAF enabled at all times, neither did Far Cry 3.

    lol, are you talking about my early post ?

    of course i did spot the lack of af, any idiot who have ever played on a pc would have notice it

    but if you think these testures look good and super high-res, who am i to say otherwise, right? after all, you're are the tech expert here, i'm just the n00b.

    Well, excuuuuuuseee meeee, for mentioning "next gen", man. But maybe, i don't know, ubisoft is to blame since they're the ones that kept trowing up "next-gen" in every presentation they made about this game, while making the game look worse and worse. You know what, i'm done. No amount of complaints will change the fact that ubisoft outdid themselves once again in the bullsh!t and lies department and the game will never look as good as they promised. life goes on i'm in peace and have nothing but love for you fellow gurus

    Rodrigoles don't be so rude, you can state your opinion and defend your points without being agressive. ;)

    I, too, am a bit disappointed with how the visuals turned out but at the end of the day Watch Dogs is still an beautiful looking game especially by open-world standards.

    Here's a nice video clip segment which shows great detail I think, especially the reflections:

    I have 8GB.. I moved it to a second drive and it's performing better. I am only using high for textures. My used system RAM usage is only hitting about 4.2GB in game..

    Running more smooth on the secondary drive.. VRAM is only peaking at about 1.8GB (out of 2GB)

    Exactly, bolded for truth. I think people are forgetting that this game is open world, and not only that, it's open world in a massive rendition of a major American city.

    Cities will have more unique objects and textures than say a jungle or forested environment, so they have to be careful to make it balanced so that it will run on a wide variety of systems.

    I'm actually amazed that it does look this good truth be told, considering the enormous size and scale of the game..

    Not trying to be a backseat mod, but can you guys resize those screen shots to 1600x1200 or link them directly before a mod removes them. Or put a spoiler tag around them. That'll work too.

    Unless the people leaking screenshots all over the web are liars who work for Ubisoft then the game looks as good as promised, possibly better.
    The only thing that seems missing is pom, which as a tech tends to look great from certain angles but awful from others.
    Seems unlikely it would cause issues in a TPS but who knows.

    Your screenshots again show low levels of AF, NOT textures, your GPU is causing that blur.
