I popped over to see an old college friend today, who just happens to be photographer Daniel Hughes. With the recent release of Battlefield 4 for the PC, he couldn’t help himself and insisted on showing me the graphical prowess the title demonstrates.
Years ago we did exactly the same procedure except in this case it was first person shooter ‘Unreal’, which at the time was absolutely stunning running on a 3DFX graphics card.
