Zelda Breath of the Wild looks promising but cant maintain 30fps

first_imgNintendo’s main focus at E3 this year was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We got to see plenty of footage of the gameplay, and if you attended E3 then a long wait was rewarded with a 30-minute play of the game.So it looks pretty, it looks very Zelda-like, and the open-world gameplay promises much. But how well did it actually perform from a technology viewpoint?Digital Foundry decided to analyze the gameplay footage that Nintendo released, and at best the results are a mixed bag. Running on the Wii U, Breath of the Wild is a 720p game attempting to maintain a solid 30 frames per second. If you’re just running around the world then it achieves this most of the time, but start fighting, kick off physics simulations, or use the spreading fire mechanic, and the frame rate drops significantly, hitting 20fps at times.There’s other disappointments, too. There’s no anti-aliasing, no anisotropic filtering, a clear shimmering is evident in the distance, and textures are blurred just a few meters away from the player character.The Zelda game shown at E3 2016 is a work in progress with the final title not being released until 2017. So Nintendo still has plenty of time to improve the performance and hopefully hit a solid 30fps on Wii U. We also have to remember that the game will be available on the Nintendo NX, which by default of being 2016 hardware, will offer much more performance than the Wii U can. Depending on how Nintendo decides to use that extra performance will be key. Do they increase the resolution to 1080p? Or do they keep 720p and concentrate on offering a higher frame rate and more visual effects?The main concern I have with Breath of the Wild is how empty the world looked when people were playing it. Sure, there’s small groups of enemies and objects to interact with, but where was the background wildlife, where was the detail that brings an open world to life? Hopefully that’s coming in the final game, but it can’t be achieved without grabbing some of the performance away from other areas.I think the generally everyone is upbeat about Breath of the Wild having the potential to be a great game. I just hope it’s one that isn’t marred by poor performance.last_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter Raffles Singapores re

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterRaffles Singapore‘s reopening is planned for the second half of 2018. Since February 2017, the heritage hotel has embarked on a careful and sensitive phased restoration. Its reopening will see the introduction of new suite categories, lifestyle experiences and refreshed dining concepts.New suite categories For more than a century, Raffles Singapore has offered its guests all-suite accommodations. The restoration will update its suites with new amenities and technology while maintaining the colonial ambience and sense of space.When Raffles Singapore reopens, it will have three new suite categories: Residence Suites, Promenade Suites and Studio Suites. The total suite count increases from the existing 103 to 115.The new Residence Suites, comprising four one-bedroom and one two-bedroom suites, will be located in the Raffles Arcade and are named after famous local cinemas during the early- to mid-1900s: the Alhambra, Diamond, Marlborough, Odean and Theatre Royal Suites. This is in homage to the days when the neighbourhood was known as ‘The Place of Cinemas’.Nestled in the front-most corner of the Main Building are two new Promenade Suites that overlook Beach Road. A tribute to the late-1800s era when Raffles Singapore faced the beachfront, the suites will be named Lady Mountbatten Suite and Lady Sophia Suite, which were converted from existing boardrooms.Lady Mountbatten was the Countess of Burma and wife of Lord Louis Mountbatten who was the Earl of Burma, last Viceroy of India and also Southeast Asia’s Supreme Allied Commander during the Second World War. In September 1945, Lord Mountbatten was in Singapore to witness the surrender of the Japanese Forces.Lady Sophia was the wife of Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of Modern Singapore, and for whom Raffles Hotel Singapore is named after.The Studio Suites that are being added aim to complement the array of suites in the Main Building, enveloped by the colonial charm of the Grand Lobby.Raffles Singapore will continue to provide existing suite categories including:Presidential SuitesGrand Hotel SuitesPalm Court SuitesCourtyard SuitesState Room Suites, formerly known as Raffles Inc. State Room Suites. The renaming reflects the conversion of the workspace into a parlour as well as the spaciousness of the suite.Raffles Arcade: A lifestyle destination for the community and SingaporeOnce reopened, the Raffles Arcade will showcase social spaces and lifestyle experiences. This includes a refreshed Raffles Gift Shop that will house a History Gallery to illustrate the heritage of Raffles Singapore. The Arcade will also be home to a brand-new Raffles Spa, a holistic sanctuary for hotel residents and the community to escape the bustle of the city.“The History Gallery exhibits the hotel’s heritage over the past 130 years, and highlights the role Raffles Singapore played as a landmark in the country, and also in the region,” explained Christian Westbeld, GM, Raffles Singapore. “We are confident the local community will enjoy the refreshed facilities within the arcade that would rejuvenate the experiences within our neighbourhood.”Signature dining experiences at RafflesSignature restaurants and bars since the 1900s, Long Bar, Tiffin Room and Writers Bar, will continue to be a part of Raffles Singapore dining experiences when the hotel reopens.Home of the Singapore Sling for over 100 years, the Long Bar’s plantation-inspired decor will be refreshed, and the famous Long Bar counter restored. Visitors and guests will be welcomed to continue the tradition of throwing peanuts on the floor as they sip on a chilled glass of Singapore Sling.A part of Raffles’ history since 1892, Tiffin Room will continue to serve up delectable North Indian cuisine. Offering authentic specialties served in Tiffin boxes, it will also present an interactive dining experience with tableside service by chefs, complete with freshly ground spices to enhance the occasion. The restored interior decor includes reinstating the wooden floorboards in Tiffin Room to bring back features from the early 1900s based on research by heritage consultants.Furthermore, the Afternoon Tea will now be served at the new lounge in the Grand Lobby, allowing guests to enjoy a quintessential Raffles dining experience amid the soft daylight streaming in from the skylight.Established as a tribute to famous writers that have come through the doors of Raffles Singapore over the years, Writers Bar will be expanded to a full bar and be the place for bespoke cocktails, elegance and intimate conversations.The restoration of Raffles Singapore is supported by award-winning interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud, who has worked on numerous restoration projects around the world.Phase Three of the restoration will commence on 13 December 2017, when the hotel will be fully closed. Raffles Gift Shop will move to a temporary location along Seah Street and remain open throughout.Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more
