Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Nov 25, 2019, 10:35:01 AMIGN are just never going to live that review down as far as the Alien fandom is concerned.
QuoteIn the case of Alien: Isolation, Digital Foundry has argued that the Switch version actually looks better than its counterparts on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While this praise must be encouraging to the team, knowing that the work will be analysed in such forensic detail, with side-by-side comparisons drawing attention to any minor inconsistency, must put additional pressure on the developers."It does add pressure," Smith confirms, "but in a good cause. Reviewers such as Digital Foundry set a standard by which developers know their efforts will be judged, and setting the bar high is good for everyone, players, platform holders and developers. It is true that some don't immediately understand the implications of an analysis, but people are smart, if they are interested they figure it out, and it's good to have knowledgeable customers."We have had a blast working on GRID Autosport and Alien Isolation. We are confident that they won't be the last games we bring to Switch. Of course, it's impossible to please everyone. A small number of players noted input latency while playing the Switch version of Alien: Isolation and Feral responded saying this was partly the result of triple buffering and will remain present as part of a development 'trade-off'. "Every game has some form of latency," Smith explains, "as any input from the player has to do several things before any correlate appears on screen: the player presses a button on the controller; the Controller reports the input to the main device; the device reports the movement to the game; the input is processed by the game; the GPU draws the frame; the frame is rendered to the screen. Every step of this process incurs a small delay. Some players are very sensitive to these delays, but the majority of people don't perceive them.""The trade-off here was between incurring a little extra input latency perceived by a very small faction of players versus displaying screen tearing, which would be seen by everyone. We chose the path, which affected the fewest players." Given the inevitable compromises required when porting games effectively, it's hard to argue Feral didn't make the right choice here. Personally, we find screen tearing interminably distracting but everyone will have their own preferences.
