    The dancer does follow a time signature its just an odd time signature like 5/4

    At this point in animal evolution the 'limitation glitch' where you point out truthfully without bias a limitation (personality flaw) a human beast without a soul cant overcome....yeah, that's a game breaking glitch. Before animals glitches with that limitation glitch but it wasn't game breaking, they would just do things like pee on territory or throw shit at each other or yell louder to feel more right to distract from the limitation but at this stage of evolution with a human brain that's a game breaking glitch. Use that as you wish. Look up David Michael Hermes (or David Michael Mercury depending on when you read this or Kyle Diamond Jones, all on facebook or the champishere997 on tumblr) for more.

    The game sees you and knows what you're doing.
    What I learned: The game can cheat you.
    Dreamcast: I'm thinking.

    Playing for way longer than you think. I play Minecraft, cut down a tree. Apparently I've played for 2 hours when I thought I played for a minute.

    Wow you realise Horizon Zero Dawn is not unique in the way it loads things? It's called Frustum Culling, or Occlusion culling on some engines. Literally ALL GAMES DO THIS! It makes no sense to draw all geometry at all times. Also thats just a spline tool. Easy stuff.

    Some games don't manage to hide the hidden load in so well, that or my pc is a bit too underpowered and I get pop-in sometimes from turning my camera.

    I tried to play Z:Wild on an emulator, and it's the most boring game I ever played! You really shouldn't have any life to play this crap.

    There is a mechanic i call the render bubble, and its in every open world game. The render bubble is an invisible sphere around the player that renders higher details then what is outside the bubble. Its very distracting.

    I understood nothing about the tricks in BotW and it’s LFD2 not LFD as you mentioned (just saying).
    The BotW didn’t make sense as I never saw a difference in the triangle or square polygons at all even though I know they exist. Various ways exist to get through both traversing the map.

    8 most game probably does that.
    6. i guess if you don't trigger the other part, it stay on forever.
    5. i rather have it done via menu.
    4. well done, indeed.
    3. makes you feel powerful.
    2. i guess you can't be a camper and go along the ride. l4d series was okay.
    1. that's what some game should do.

    Not a single thing about 2D textures making the player assume things are 3D? Nothing about making things appear large but being actually small?

    I play inverted also. It's just the proper way to play. I've never leaned back in real life and found myself staring at the ground. Back=Up and Forward=Down. Pilots know, Submarine Captains know, and Real Gamers know. Great video 👍

    The dancer actually follows the rythm... but it's in a different way... if you're a musician (but you don't really have to be one) then you sureley know about triplets. The dancer follows triplets.

    Destiny is a good example of the low health trick. The health bar is split into 3 bars. 2 bars for shields and 1 bar for health. In reality you have the same amount of health as you do shields. It's a bit easier to catch bc of its pvp. Where enemy health bars reflect the half and half idea accurately

    The Horizon: Zero Dawn “environment painting” is comparable to Disney’s Multiplane Camera, quite an evolution in the world of production.

    pretty much all games use occlusion which is what was explained for #1. It's pretty common for 3D games.

    I love Horizon but it was not the first to have tools to create maps like that. I think Crysis or Far Cry were the first to use brushes with procedural vegetation. If you try the level editors you’ll see that.

    LOL. It's called "Occlusion Culling" and is used in pretty much every game in the past 15 years.

    the part with health actually bothered me sometimes because I knew I should've died in some situations

  • Deyvson Moutinho Caliman

    And the dancer really messes with you in Dark Souls III, up to that point you think you have the game figured out and that is a steep curve in difficulty up to the end.

    How about mirror's edge, where they loaded the next level while you were in the elevator or waiting for the big sewer door to open? I only noticed that after i moved it to an external drive and the doors that were only open for 15 seconds would take a few minutes to open in the first place after you hit the button...

  • Aleksandar Zivanovic

    No offense to anyone- I love this channel :)
    But these tricks are really not that hard to achieve, most of them is just basic math to pinpoint assets that shouldn't be loaded :)
    Uncharted 2 thing- as technical as it looks, its really pretty easy to do it :D
    Nonetheless, gameranx is awesome channel, and this video is entertaining as hell!
