Daaaaamn! It is getting hard to believe this is even the same game. Still some work to be done though, you can see that the specular maps aren't clipped when light is occluded by level geometry.

God-damnit. All those guys are just like "I can still make it!" :D

 

But jokes aside judging on the speed of the train I wonder how many children die there each year. :/

It's amazing that people are patient enough to put up with this. I have train tracks like a kilometer away from my house, and I still get annoyed by train horns. They're so loud, and this is like an uptown rail, so trains go by every 20 minutes, from 6 am to midnight. But that's nothing in comparison to this :o

Off-topic being that and all, I still linked it because it's a great example of IRL kitbashing :P

 "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

daaaaaaaamn, it runs! Somehow I expected better FPS than that, though not by much. But this is an older Pi generation. I mean, the first Xbox was somehow made to run Doom 3, and they say the Pi's GPU is on that level or slitly better, so surely it can pump out more FPS than this?

Masterful architecture. It isn't just a bunch of square rooms, but rather an intricately detailed arena.

Very relevant for every stealth gamer. This is exactly why I try to only reload when I die. Excellent channel BTW, if you don't know it.

I don't care about my stealth score - but if i get a guard into combat mode i most often still reload. TDM does not reward failure at all and neither combat nor hiding until the guard cools down again is fun for me. But blackjacking random people and robbing em blind is - don't know why though...

The reward is that feeling when you get out of a sticky situation and the feeling of satisfaction for not "cheating yourself" out of danger. But whatever, play however you want! :-)

 

For me, this video actually kind of opened my eyes to something I have been feeling for a long time, but couldn't quite put my finger onto. Challenges in stealth games like "never be seen" are stupid and actually harm your fun in playing, because obviously, you wanna achieve the perfect score and always reload. Boring! Having seen this video now, I will ignore these challenges, unless I got for a second playthrough. It's the fun that counts, not the perfect score.

Some people enjoy such challenges (not me though) - so their existence is fine (if not used to lock away the good stuff from blackjacks like me). Whether they are more harm or good highly depends on the individual playing the game. So you should always feel free to cherrypick your fun from any game.
