  • Watch Dogs: Bad Blood shows off its new tricks

  • Agente_Silva 17/09/2014

    well, watchdogs is a demanding game for PC (or a bad optimized port?). I suppose you rig is a decent one no? otherwise you wouldnīt complaint... anyway, the way games are developed nowadays, multiplatform that is, it is expectable that this "bad ports" become more and more frequent :(

    True... thing is GTA has been around for like 15 years. It is normal and natural people consider it a reference (even though some missions in GTA itself were a bit dull). Watchdogs just got here, trying to have itīs own identity - letīs give them a chance. WD has the ground to become a great game.

    Amen brother... Iīm totally on that page. Donīt hype before you try... WD is a pretty decent game with a lot of ground to get better. One of the best openworld graphics so far... it surely has a lot to give for the next years. Iīll happily wait :)

    You couldīve tried the Worse mod... it makes gameplay smoother at higher graphic definitions... at least in my end that is what it did (and I played it@5760*1080).

    Drop Aiden Pearce, that saltless freak and bring in T-Bone for Watchdogs 2 (Aiden is easily forgetable and we wonīt feel sorry for him, ahah)

    I donīt get why is it a bad thing to like this game. Some people just expect to much from games nowadays.

    " can disable the HUD completely" That is what I do in GTR, relying only on info given by the dashboard (just on a few cars I use HUD instead of dash because I have to set the seat to low, making the bonet hide the apex).

    Anyway, to me those are details... racing games are all about handling and car physics. IMO Simbin got it spot on (GTR 1 was a bit too sensitive and unforgiving, but later with GTR2 and Race07/GTR Evo things were more realistic).

  • Battlefield 4: Dragon's Teeth review

  • Agente_Silva 28/07/2014

    After one year and a half of BF4 Iīve gone Premium. I was really relutant because in my mind DLCīs are just a fanīs rip off and, back in BF2 new content was free (and it was, after 4 years of game existence). For the last 3 months the game got better, specially because of that server tickrate update - running for cover actually works most of the times and hit detection is more accurate.

    My favourite vanilla maps are Paracel, Golmud, Rogue and Lancang (yes, big maps, just like... you know, Battlefield) - these are maps that take time to get familiar with being infantry, in tank/APC or chopper. Recently when playing these feel too familiar and the same routine - that is why I went Premium.

    Dragonīs Theet is great, really, it brings back that Mashtuur/Jalalabad gameplay of squads running through narrow streets, close quarters in buildings and rooftops (Pearl Market). There other urban maps, way more wide, giving room for nice tank fights, but still a joy for infantry as they have to make through streets, converging to wide squares with proper cover.

    On the veichle side (wich I really like) Naval Strike is a must - if youīre into chopper, boat action this is one expansion youīll love (donīt get the idea itīs infantry nightmare because if you donīt get your routes right youīll be taken down by IGLA/SMAW/RPGīs in no time). Infantry to infantry action is there as well but sometimes great moments are spoiled by a gunboat near by. Anyway, there are water passages that can by mined with SLAM keeping boats from patrolling through islands (restricting their presence to the perimeter). This expansion is the most beautifull, mainly because itīs setting is mostly water and nice tropical vegetation :) There is one map, Wave Breaker I think, with that epic submarine dock that goes through one island wich I think is a absolute joy, allowing infantry encounters for a good amount of time, but after that you come out to the light and get that "uffff" feeling.

    Going back to Caspian and Oman feels great as well... although I didnīt spend much time in this one,naturally, it felt nicely upgraded and balanced - there were a few open areas, for example, in Caspian going from A (Antenna?) to B that have more cover, allowing players to walk without so many exposure (cars are still rather scarce in this map, just like Golmud).

    Considering I payed 34€ for Battlefield 4 (with China Rising included) and another 30€ for Premium now (both in G2Play site), having waited for the game to "mature" was the best thing to do. For those still relutant about Premium I say now itīs a safe buy with lots of worth content (not refering to battlepacks and all of that stuff). I personally love Naval Strike. Dragonīs Theeth is great to bring your squad together and Second Assault is a great return to maps you once mastered (with a pinch of salt :))

  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with Nvidia Shield Tablet

  • Agente_Silva 24/07/2014

    nVidia will regret an Android OS. Windows is the gamers ground and the idea of being chained to a Android exclusive environmet and market reminds why I left consoles back in 2003.

    Iīm very excited to see this gaming tablet evolution but Iīm holding off for the next year and see how things evolve.

  • Xiaomi MiPad with Nvidia Tegra K1 review

  • Agente_Silva 24/07/2014

    and so it begins...

    Iīve been reading about tablet specs and their ability to turn into a gaming device and realized the party has just begun. For those who consider buying a tablet (mainly for games) I suggest waiting... really... I know there are some nice tablets already capable of some acceptable gaming experience (Toshiba Encore WT8; Lenovo Miix 2 8; ACER Iconia WT4; Dell Venue 8 Pro, etc..) but this are the early party entries. Has you might noticed I only mentioned Win8.1 tablets - being a Win8.1 user on desktop, as most people, I suppose the same experience to be replicated to tablets, just like software (steam, Origin, and all music/video files I have at home).

    Donīt know about Android portability of those software/files (will games already available in Steam/Origin run on Android, or then we have to wait for developers to port a specific game?), donīt know how well Android deals with 3D gaming (I assume it runs on OpenGL API - will AAA games be optimized for this interface?!).

    nVidia Shield Tablet (coming out in August 14th with an entry price of 300$) will definitly set the stage for the gaming tablets and it will obliterate existing gaming capable hardware (mentioned above - rounding the 250$ pricetag). I can see in a very short period of time AMD and even Intel developing their gaming tablets as well, and with the fierce competition we already are familizared with, the specs will ramp so quickly that in about one year or so we will be playing AAA next-gen games on tablets (Itīs not hard to foresee in about 3 to 5 years, PC desktop being replaced by those tablets).

    So, hardware wise things will quickly evolve for us gamers. The only concern here will be software - how well operating systems will cope with hardware specs (I know Windows is not the best example of being par with hardware evolution), how recent/future AAA games will be compatible with Android/iOS...

    Iīm gonna hold my bucks for now waiting for those to unveil. Maybe in a year or so I make my move on buying a gaming tablet, considering jumping in now is still a bit of a risk (althought I would love to take a nVidia Shield for my vacations ;))

  • Watch Dogs enhanced graphics mod gets a final release

  • Agente_Silva 23/07/2014


    +1 dude... it could be used on the first hour of play, until player gets used to the interactivity of world objects, but after that it shouldnīt flash anymore. It spoils object texture and detail.

  • Agente_Silva 23/07/2014

    Played most of the game with the Worse mod installed... it did an awsome job in textures, lightining and that sweet cinema blur effect. I did some nice videos to show to a friend, just to convince him to buy a new rig :) The developer clearly stated that this mod would be much noticed for those who could crank it to Ultra. Mind that there are two versions of this Worse mod (the second one takes blur effect a bit farther wich imo makes it perfect since the first one was blurring people and objects a bit close)

    But that was like a month ago... this is old news...

    Thatīs why I didnīt say it is the best of the genre. When I say "Maybe youīve seen all too many of this kind" I was exactly thinking about saint row and sleeping dogs.

    Anyway, my point is Watchdogs is far, way far, of being a crappy super hyped flop.

    edit:"Honestly, I don't give two fucks whether you believe me or not. I don't need validation from some random on a game forum " - and I thought you were here to share some thoughts about videogaming experience. And itīs also great to see your well-so-informed opinion about Watchdogs with only 4 hours of playing it... keep it up!

    Watchdogs is a great game. Really, itīs openworld is truly immersive, gameplay is great, the hacking city stuff in chases or action packed missions are awesome. The city is superbly made, making me visit all hotspots...

    ...but still, for many people it is not enough. It seems beating AAA titles is the hype of the moment... maybe you guys should go out and turn off your computer for a while. Maybe youīve seen all too many of this kind. Maybe you shouldnīt be playing the same kind of games over and over. Maybe youīre into Minecraft and indie games. Maybe you do not have the specs to be amazed at what is being done graphically nowadays. Maybe you just went straight with the campaign, finished it and never bothered to look and appreciate what developers did in the game.

    I just wished the game had more missions, campaign or side missions. It feels that the city has a lot more potential!

    Watchdogs 2 could be released next week :)

  • Asus PB287Q review

  • Agente_Silva 07/07/2014

    "... sound quality is pretty poor with no low-end grunt and little depth"

    I donīt really understand why manufacturers keep including speakers to monitors. Everybody has speakers or headphones, and even the cheapest of any are capable to deliver way better sound. Remove speakers, sell a bit cheaper... I think that makes sense.

    edit: LoL Insert Coin... it is inevitable the laughing at fanboys. The amount of all-solidary comments from consolers raging against MSIīs laptop - sorry guys, but yes, youīre the low-treshold in gaming (deal with it). Anyway, it seems to fall a bit short compared to P(B)S4 xD

    edit2 :) @Ep1cNessie: In my opinion 4K is a bit rushed out of the door. The technology is still too expensive per si and it demands even more expensive technology to feed it. I would say at least 2 years to make it affordable in every aspect...

  • Agente_Silva 20/06/2014

    This mod will have a better result for high end rigs. Keep in mind that the first version of the mod was to be used with the High/Ultra preset, meaning if you change any of the settings (thus making it a "Custom" setting) most of the performance tweaks were not applied.

    After modding I was able to use preset on Ultra without any gameplay/graphic cost.

  • The Hardline beta: it's Battlefield, but it works

  • Agente_Silva 12/06/2014

    "Eurogamer have a right and an obligation almost to highlight that bf4 is still broken for many . " - Correct. But the same obligation applys considering it works great for many people. But I understand, you gather much more people and support by beating the AAA giant, even if hes trying to be friend with us... For example, Eurogamer should review and highlight the last "Netcode patch" released by DICE - wich seems to deal with a lot of important issues.

    I still take in large consideration most of issues are due to userīs bad setup/firewalls/router settings/antivirus or reduced specs.

    Anyway, I reckon there could be more improvements to tickrate (sometimes I doubt if all my bullets are hiting the target or lost in "space". Also the impact on enemy by those bullets seems to be delivered very late - allowing enemy to perfectly aim and kill while being heavily shot), and to map interaction (you still get a lot of bullets hitting walls that are not there anymore - crumbled debris); unable to jump over some fallen objects (trees, rocks); getting stuck in non visible objects - I consider these "small" issues, but still with a big impact to competitive gameplay.

  • Agente_Silva 12/06/2014

    I guess Eurogamer should stand aside from the hype or fail scenes. That "Battlefield4" doesnīt work thing is a PARCIAL reality! I NEVER had force crashes, or blackscreens or rubberbanding or whatever fatal issues some players unfortunately had/have. There will always be more complaints than compliments and EG should know better.

    Battlefield 4 has always worked for me and several thousands, and to be honest itīs seems far lot better after "tickrate" improvements (at least the "run for cover and dying 30 meters from corner" is not happening anymore).

    The argument "itīs like Battlefield 4 but it works" is stupid and should cost you something!

    Yep, people seem to forget where they came from. We get older and our expectations are different as when we weīre kids, but donīt expect that to reflect in videogames. Maybe this kind of reviewers should step away from gaming a bit, maybe get some fresh air and return with a less demanding attitude (funny thing is probably are the same people who praise all retro gaming). When I go to the cinema I donīt expect Transformers to be a "Schindlerīs list" or something...
