Incredible attention to detail in GTA: Definitive Edition

This stuff feels like a designers cry for help

And a producer’s cry for $$$.

"Graphic design is my passion"

ID: hkf4q2d

I’ve been working with graphics for like… 47 years

ID: hkf660j

They call this design the "skippy" because that's a noise my mouse makes when I draw it.

*skip skip skip skip skip skip*

ID: hkf5euu

I think the issue is they ordered a graphic designer to do a texture artists job

ID: hkftwvl

Apparently the reason textures are so fucking up is because they ran the textures through an AI to upscale them. There was zero human input for the definitive edition.

Problem is, the AI is misreading signs and letters and stuff like 'air guitar 199$" is now "ar guitar 199S"

They didn't even use designers.

I have 1 year of Gimp and 1 year of Paint. When do I start?

Haha is this for real?

ID: hkfxnwz

Honestly the most fun thing to do in the game is try to find broken stuff.

Like, just how much text got garbled by the AI Upscaling bots.

Engines and Bearboxes! Body Kit Fitten!

Jesus did nobody review what it was spitting out?

Very dissapointing for "definitive".

Take Two sued the team behind RE3, GTA;SA port and VC port for vita/switch etc to release this shit
This is a joke

ID: hkej9w5

tbh its a shame because most of those mods and the teams behind them were so passionate about what they were and they made the already good game into something
even more incredible.. only to have it all taken down because rockstar knew damn well that no one would really like the shitty remaster once it came out so they simply pulled the "cant have competition if there is none" card and just killed most if not all of the mods and their respective communities only to give us this half assed "remaster"

ID: hkf90ng

A half-assed remaster made by a mobile developer no less.

ID: hkevn96

They sued the modders and removed the originals from sale so people HAVE to buy the definitive edition. They saw what the modders were doing and wanted to capitalize on it. Those two actions is what pisses me off about this.

ID: hkezo3c

Yep, they went to extreme lengths to remarket this BS.
But instead they released absolute shit

ID: hkfo1xr

If only they would do the right thing and just deal with the modders. Sell their product and give them 80% of the profits. Much better than not being paid, I'm sure the modders would agree.

We should release a definitive edition of the OG trilogy. People love that shit.

Awesome idea! Are we going to totally revamp it with HD character models and background environments?

Oh yes! Indeed we are.

Oh man this is exciting! Should I hire a team of top developers to make this happen?

Fuck no! That costs money. We are going to let the AI bots make it and see what happens.

What if it doesn’t work?

Sir, this is Rockstar, People will buy it anyway.

ID: hkfzmck

The funny thing to me is... it was made by the same sub-studio that did the GTA iOS/Android ports. And yet it is some how more janky than those were.

8 : Anonymous2021/11/13 04:31 ID: hkf7mjo

I’m getting the sense that I shouldn’t pay $60 for this

ID: hkfzt16

Well, if you're a PC gamer, good news, for the moment, you Can't anyway! It got pulled from the store. Probably because oops:

ID: hkg5ehn

I don’t think its even worth the effort to pirate it

9 : Anonymous2021/11/12 23:13 ID: hke5exa

give them a fucking break... do you know how many shark cards they need to fucking process, come on....

ID: hkelpqb

Plus, Rockstar is only a small indie developer. This is one of their first games, we should cut them some slack.

ID: hkesd1s

They're showing a lot of promise for such a small studio, though. They seem honest and passionate about their work. In it for the love, not the money.

Is 9 somehow cooler than 7 or something? Why'd they change it?

ID: hkeolrc

7 got ate by 9??? What a twist!

11 : Anonymous2021/11/12 22:37 ID: hke0ob2

This shit is an embarrassment.

ID: hkfd8mm

I'm so dumbfounded right now. You decided to halt/sue dozens of GTA Fan-made related projects that looked miles away better than this so you can release your own remaster, and THIS is the best you could come up with it? This is how you treat this beloved games people were eager to get an awesome version of them in current platforms?

Saddest thing of all it's that people are gonna forget this so quickly and salivate when GTA 6 gets announced.

ID: hkfhoeh

They could have just ported the original game with no changes and it would have been better than what we have now.

12 : Anonymous2021/11/12 23:28 ID: hke7dd7

I think they made this version shitty, so you all won't mind when they re-release GTA 5 again

ID: hkeqd51

You mean re-re-release? Lol

ID: hkev0h1

Ps3: Release Ps4: Re release Ps5: Re re release ?: Re re re release

13 : Anonymous2021/11/13 04:20 ID: hkf6gkn

I gotta say, I think the reason Rockstar doesn't make GTA games anymore is because they forgot how.

ID: hkfemo0

Well apparently after RDR2 wrapped a lot of the older talent left, so "they forgot" isn't too far off the marl from what I hear. That being said, these remasters weren't done by R*, they were done by another developer, but that doesn't change the fact R* fucking OK'd this.

14 : Anonymous2021/11/12 23:13 ID: hke5fuu

I'm so glad I didn't get suckered into this fucking joke.

ID: hkfddan

Yeah, I'm better downloading a PS2 ISO and go wild with cheats over this.

15 : Anonymous2021/11/13 01:29 ID: hkemeh4

Hahaha what the fuck does this game cost money

16 : Anonymous2021/11/13 00:34 ID: hkefoit

I wish I'd bought the originals before Rockstar delisted them, bottlenecking me into the 'definitive' edition.

ID: hkfe8so

As far as I'm concerned, when there's no longer a legal means to acquire a piece of media, piracy is fair play.

ID: hkfnguw

Exactly. If you can legally buy it, buy it. If you can’t legally buy it, pirate.

ID: hkevvxl

There's always a way, yargh matey!
