  • 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

    @HarryPalmer

    +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.

    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...

  • Watch Dogs has shipped over 8 million units

    "They need to start thinking about lots of different side missions. Coming up with lots of stories and characters for sub quests" +1

    Driving in Watchdogs was very complicated at first, but then, with some practice (and guitarist nimble fingers) it turned out to be very fun :)

    @Suarez07

    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...

  • Ubisoft explains why Watch Dogs on PC contains hidden graphics files

  • 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.

  • EA addresses "unacceptable" Battlefield 4 launch

  • Agente_Silva 20/06/2014

    1. Issues in BF4 were already experienced in B3 (mostly tickrate related)
    2. I like how DICE referes to BF4 as the "former title" (Hardline is DLC donīt make it more than it is)
    3. So, when will BF5 release?
    4. Could you transmit that new "product release" policy to MAXIS please?

  • 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!

    Ok then... Iīm not going to interrupt my Batman session (from Origin to City) and install Watchdogs just now... Not because of this review though...

    @sildur

    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...

    I never played TES or Witcher games. This Skyrim caught my eye and I found it would be the perfect game for a 3 display immersive world exploring. I installed it recently BUT itīs so immense, so deeply founded in itīs community (and thus the endless modding) I felt a bit "overwhelmed" by all of it! Just visited the Gpher modding page only to confirm my fears - zillion files to mod the game, donīt even know where to start! Basically I was looking for environment, immersion mods... Can anyone point me the "must have" mods for Skyrim?!

  • DICE promises to tackle Battlefield 4 rubber-banding

  • Agente_Silva 03/04/2014

    To me, and certainly most PC players, BF4 "just" fails on tickrate. Everything else works pretty good... So, to all who say "game is broken... fix it... bla bla bla", change your speech to "my experience with this game is shit..." or something like that because what you shout in foruns is just not true... and we donīt care as well (it could even be your shitty machine, cramped with antivirus and shit that makes you feel "safe" - sort it out).

  • Agente_Silva 02/04/2014

    @George-Roper

    It is clear that this is a console specific problem. I donīt see PC players complaining about rubber banding (only about low tickrates).

    PC players have been nerfed so that console casual players could have a bit of Battlefield taste and still their hardware falls head over feet... naturally they complaint (that is the price to pay for cheap platforms).
