Can we toggle the 'blood frame' off?

12 posts in this topic

I may have mentioned this before, but it's come back to my attention during the new video released.

 

When a kill animation is successful, there's this jarring blood frame effect that surrounds the screen to signify you have just killed someone. Everytime I see it it completely removes me from the cinematic experience of the game, ironically right at the most crucial moment of a well earned kill.

 

Is this something we have the option to toggle off/on?

 

I don't mind the drops of blood getting on the camera during the more blood letting kills (or the toilet water splashing the screen) but I'd hate to be getting a great cinematic experience so lavishly recreated in this game only to lose it at every death when the frame becomes momentarily busy with a naff looking, almost photoshop brush effect. Especially for bloodless deaths such as the back breaking.

 

Maybe it's just me?

I completely agree. I mentioned this also. Not sure why they did it. Only thing I can think of is because of the ESRB?

No...its too much and too cheesy. I veto to minimize it or remove it.

I agree, it looks like a cheap placeholder for a better effect in it's current state and takes away from the other visuals.

You guys beat me to it (sorry Jpops)

 

Don't take this the wrong way because I love the new kills and game I'm just giving my thoughts....

 

During the kills, i like the idea of the on screen blood splatter, but after watching it over and over I'm not sure about it going all around the boarder of the screen everytime! I do like occasional small splatters of blood off center (minimal) as if it hit the screen on accident!

 

Thoughts?

I wonder if they can because remember these are animations ( Cut Scenes)  I hope so but things are looking better every time they put out a new video. I could tell the graphical improvement of everything.

I'll also add that if they just had a few splatter dots or streaks instead of the full boarder blood, maybe make it focused!?!? I know if blood hit a cemera lens it would be blurry but hmmm ... just throwing out ideas! I know the team is sitting there going "shut up powell your getting too picky" lol

Agree, in this regard - less is more. The blood splatter has a kind of Playstation/N64 era look about it - doesn't fit very well with what are excellent graphics on such a small budget.
