Compare the two games side by side and not through a computer monitor. Videos don't even remotely do any of the games justice in the slightest. I'm going to take a gander and assume that you don't own any next-gen console yourself?
It's not really a great variation in Visuals in comparison... so I don't understand what your point was here.
You don't see the graphical differences between Gears of War 3 and Call of Duty 2? Alrighty then! I literally have nothing to say that.
Infamous : Second Son looks like it could run on a PS3 or XBOX360 ( considering what GTA 5 looked like ) so again... I was expecting a little better... Quantum Break and The Division just seem like only slight steps up in Visuals. Shadow Fall looks like it could run on a PS3 / XBOX360 and Ryse does too. They are going to have to do better...
GTA V was a pretty good looking game considering what they shoved into it but it is hardly a graphical powerhouse compared to something like The Last of Us, Battlefield 4 or Metro: Last Light. Compare Second Son to any of the other Infamous titles and I guarantee you'll see the evident differences, same goes with Killzone in comparison to the previous games. Like I said, internet videos, even when streamed in "1080p", hardly do the titles justice.
I think you misunderstand me.
I understand the different writer bit, I do. That is just one of the many negative downfalls of a long running comic that gets mishandled by their own company from time to time.
Add to that Earth 31 Batman is vastly weaker than other Supermen.
The point I was making was what I took away from the Frank Miller Batman books. Superman is dumb. Again I am not saying Superman in general is dumb, just that Frank miller seems to write and see Superman as dumb. I do not blame him, I think overall Superman relies on his stats for wins in most Comic fights I seen him in than anything else.
That is just my thoughts on Frank Miller's work.
Could've opened with that one mate :P
Frank Miller is hardly a proper knowledge on Superman, let alone the character by extension. His work with Batman through TDKR should hardly be considered a proper indication of Superman in any regard. My opinion on Miller's work with Batman differs largely from his characterization of several other characters.
- Silver Age
- Red Sun
- Superman One Million
- Kal Kent (unless we're sticking to original Superman versions)
- Kal-L (Earth 2 Superman)
- Kingdom Come
Pre Flashpoint Once he gets more feats of combat speed and durability, New 52.
don't underestimate WB :P
Based off feats, All-Star is weaker than both New 52 and Pre-Flashpoint. I'd still argue that Pre and Post 52 could arguably gain a majority over WB depending on the state of Superman.
Superman by feats and with his power set could and should beat most foes in DC universe with minimal effort. Yet he fights like a brick half the time forgetting his Heat Vision that can cut moons in half, his FTL Speed Blitzes, Freeze Breath, ect. Most often he simply fights at the enemies pace like a brick.
Strikes me dumb.
Yet again mate, that is as far from the truth as I can put it. Fighting "dumb" is by far a very incorrect term in specifying how Superman fights. Superman doesn't fight "dumb" nor is he dumb, for the most part, he's inexperienced in terms of who he's up against or the heroes we can compare him to. He may take advantage of his sheer power, but there are more than enough instances to prove that he utilizes more tactical and strategic motives in his fights than even Batman himself.
In addition, whether readers like it or not, Superman is written differently by almost every writer who approaches him. In some cases he might be powerful enough to wipe out his enemies with a single blow or in another instance, he might be weakened to allow the writer to utilize some creativity in how Superman approaches his enemies (which happens more often than not).
I simply don't find it fair that you're assuming as much, especially based off very little and especially off of TDKR of all things. That is no way a means to downplay the story, but a simple clarification that the story gave Batman a massive crutch in order to shine him in a proper light.
I don't know which comics you've been reading mate but that's about as far from the truth as you can get. Superman constantly has to outsmart his enemies, considering that a large majority of them have powers he simply can't deal with, are equal to his own or simply surpass him in every way.
Specifying TDKR, Superman was written in such a sense to highlight Batman's impressive capabilities. Judging Superman's capabilities based off his performance in arguably one of Batman's most popular books is severely low-balling the character.
