If you think those games look better than MK8, you are forced to say they look better than ps4 titles too or else it's hypocrisy.

Sorry, what? So you're basically saying MK8> or = PS4 titles?

You really shouldn't pezus.

hell did anyone count the textures in the models yet?

Every big Wii U game seems to get "confirmed" be a single source to be 1080P, and then it's clarified later on that its actually 720p native, that can upscale to 1080p like any other game.

We went through this same thing with Mario 3D World and I think Pikmin 3 as well.

So far, yes.



Around the Network

I am laughing at people that are downplaying Mario Kart 8 also for them calling out Nintendo fans for actions that they did not do while they did then I see couple of members that I already schooled and I already pointed out the facts in this thread already...

"Cartoonish" is no less resource demanding that "Realistic" visuals, it all depends on complexity and not the artstyle, people... Learn the basic difference between artstyle and actual visual detail such as polygons, texture resolution and its density, filtering, physics, animation, draw distance, level of detail, shadow quality and artificial inteligence, display/output/rendering resolution such as 1920x1080 or 1280x720...

Comparing games that are not even in same genre nor comparable in artstyle to Mario Kart 8 is pointless and unfair to begin with yet some individuals keep doing that and some of those games that they use for comparison run at 30 frames per second, have considerably lower draw distance and level of detail, levels that are cramped like Resident Evil 4/Revelations or like original Rainbow Six.

Also claiming that Mario Kart 8 is cartoonish is just soo wrong, it is factually in correct in so many ways... Jet Set Radio, Borderlands, No More Heroes, Mad World, Pokemon X & Y, Naruto/Bleach/DBZ series and many others are pretty much cartoonish games... If Mario Kart 8 is "cartoonish" then Metal Gear Solid 2, Manhunt, Shenmue, Rainbow Six, Conduit 1 & 2, Super Smash Bros, etc... are "cartoonish". You people simply arent smart to see difference between "cartoonish" and cute... Are asians the only one that can notice the crucial difference.... Just Mickey Mouse is cartoonish does not mean that Elfen Lied, Ghost In The Shell, Steins Gate, Armored Votoms, Akira and other animes that by your logic are cartoonish... Why do you people dont know the very basics that even a grade school kid would learn in mere five minutes... A japanese kid would already know thqt in kindergadden if you were explaining the difference between cartoonish and cute, etc...

Kane and others lack basic knowledge... That is the fact...

Compare a kart racing game with a kart racing game... Modnation and Little Big Planet Kart just get demolished in detail and framerate and if Mario Kart 8 is also 1080p then also in resolution...



Naw, it's gotta be native 720p, upscaled to 1080p. Nothing wrong with that though! Should still look pixel-less and virtually free of input lag on me 72 inch TV!

wat

There are 4-5 year old PS3 games that are more impressive than MK8. Realism will almost always beat cartoon

Are them games running in 1080P@60fps? hell the is nothing on 360 or ps3 that comes close to what MK8 is doing -_- .


Yes, because it takes a NASA supercomputer to run a graphical beast that is Mario Kart, with its cartooney textures, bad AA and incredibly simple geometry at 1080p/60fps.

GT5 and 6 are technically way more demaning games than Mario Kart (and yes they are both at 1080p/60fps while pushing realism), which is to be expected since one is a cartooney game and one is a racing sim, but there are actually people out there that think MK8 is technically more impressive...

Maybe thats cos it is??, and im pretty sure that GT5-6 are not in Full 1080P but i could be wrong on this but id still like you to provide prove of said claim .



Lame, I'll not buy unless it's 120fps, and over 9000p. Now that's hardcore.

Lol, ok. I guess I shouldn't continue
