I mean yes and no.  However this game uses full MSAA x4 just like Enthusiast PC's do.  That is the trade-off.  This looks far better, and is a higher resolution than 900p.

Wait? What's the complaint here again? They game has black bars so that they can have a great looking, full 1080p experience with a stable framerate, and full MSAAx4...THE HORROR!!!

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

I understand that having black bars allows the developers to render more things in the game as well has have better AA and etc but the thing is, I don't like having black bars at the top or the bottom of my monitor when I am playing a game or even watching a movie... I did not buy a Monitor/TV so that a quater of the screen will be taken up by black bars when I play a game or watch a movie. This is specially true for games and I find it very annoying cause it feels like that instead of playing the game at fullscreen, it looks like the game is in "windowed" mode if you get what I mean.

And I really hope more games don't do this cause imo, its nonsense. I play games to have a gaming experience, not a movie experience and that includes not having black bars. Heck, if you have a monitor/tv that is cinemawide, then ur even more fucked cause the blackbars will stay no matter what in games where as in movies, the black bars are supposed to go away on cinemawide monitors/tvs

I don't think you understand how this works.

yes, its a higher resolution than 900p

1920 x 800 (The Order) = 1, 536,000 pixels

1600 × 900 = 1, 440,000 pixels. 



I'm the only one who doesn't see what's so fucking awful about this? This is coming from someone who doesn't really give a damn about The Order 1886.

I totally understand where you are coming from, but being a movie buff I am kinda used to it.  In fact I think 21:9 monitors are going to start gaining a decent amount of traction with the enthusiast crowd as well...

More importantley, the pixel density in the actual image is the same as 1080p. Which of course means clarity will be the same as 1080p.
