    @Sharz Cool, so I can just write down the activation codes for the Uplay games and access them on my new PC in June? Sounds simple enough.

    Thank you! Closure is bliss.

    It's my first time purchasing a Humble Bundle. Can I access the games on my PC when I get it? Should I activate them now on my laptop, or wait?

    I'm guessing the games are tied to my Uplay account, and don't require activation keys on every device you try to access them on. What a noob...

  • Finally, the Batman: Return to Arkham collection is official

  • AnsemsApprentice 18/05/2016

    @LiamK I feel like you just put 'super' in front of some words. He has no innate or supernatural powers. He wasn't gifted by an external force, he learned his skills, which superheros don't do. He started as the greatest detective in the world -- I don't count how he's been painted in other forms or what he's become. He really isn't a super hero, nor is Tony Stark, his most similar comparison.

    Anyway, why so serious? My initial comment was intended to be annoyingly pedantic in a funny way, but I failed, ha.

    "The greatest superhero games of all time."

    All utter nerds scoffed at that line, including myself... He's not a... forget it.

    Arkham Asylum is a masterpiece of course. I would play an updated version, whether it comes to PC or not. Hopefully it does! I have no love for City -- I think the main bit, the city, is completely bland and empty feeling -- but the gameplay is mostly great. It lacks the intimate details of Asylum, but never mind. It's actually a different type of game, and excels in its own ways.

    40 is a little much, but remasters tend to drop dramatically in price very quickly.

  • Chaos Theory creator plays Splinter Cell's greatest ever level

  • AnsemsApprentice 10/05/2016

    Conviction was fantastic, but boy, that ain't a Splinter Cell game. I refuse to call it that -- it's just Conviction to me, and my brain is much happier that way. Blacklist had zero pull for me, and I never played it, but I'm sure I will one day and come to an understanding of it, but yeah: no Ironside would be like going from Connery to Moore.

    Chaos Theory is the peak, no question. The whole Hokkaido section of the game is mind-blowing. And that Amon Tobin soundtrack, HOLY SHIT. Masterful.

    @BobbyDeNiro Thank you for the recommend. I've basically configured my minimum specs on every UK site I could find, PC Specialist being one. On purchase day, the only deciding factor will be the price and warranty, plus company reviews.

    On Falconcomputers.co.uk I got down to 896.99 with this spec:

    Case: Eclipse P400 Mid tower Case

    Board: Gigabyte GA-970-Gaming
    RAM: 8GB HyperX Fury 1600MHz -Black

    Audio: ASUS XONAR DG 5.1 PCI (PCI slot required)
    Network: 300Mbps PCI Wireless Adaptor
    CPU: AMD FX8350 8 Core 4.0GHz Retail

    Not too bad. If you're using Steam only, the lack of a disc drive makes little difference, and if you're moving on from a PS4 you already have a controller for it. The cable that came with mine totally connects just fine to a PC and lets me play games, despite some telling me that wouldn't work and I'd need a different cable.

    But yes, I'm waiting for the new cards, and I'm interested to see the pricing/performance of AMD's new Zen processors when they hit around the same time. Price to performance might be even more economical at that point.

    @FMV-GAMER I actually didn't know that's how it worked. Thank you for the pro tip, that will save me some money. I thought only 1070s and 1080s were coming -- I had no idea of a 1050 or 1060. That is even more exciting; I feel like it's never been been more perfect to take the plunge.

    If 1080p 60fps is my only priority -- and I don't see that changing until four or five years down the line -- maybe I could get my perfect rig for a decent chunk under 1000. I will make sure to research every single component thoroughly.

    Thanks for the tips!

    @FMV-GAMER When Shadow of Mordor first hit, I remember the PS4 was almost on par with the image quality at ultra on a decent gaming rig. That's excluding superior all-round performance and higher resolution options of course, though it ran super well on PS4. I'm still shocked at how good it looks on a 349 piece of kit. Mind-blowing.

    I won't be spending 1300, don't worry! With basically the same gaming performance, bumping down from an i7 6700k to an i5 6600k, I can get closer to the magic 1000 mark I'm striving for without a noticeable difference. So far my first build, at the minimum settings I would plump money down for right now, would set me back 1170. By the time the new cards hit, I'm sure the previous GPUs will drop by 100 over night, and I will have myself a decently future-proofed system.

    It's happening this year, anyway. Once I make my mind up, it's done. By Christmas I will have it! I'm very excited.

    @SuperShinobi I think I should have avoided my Nostradamus tangent about the future being all PC. What I was actually saying (now I think about it more) is that MY future is going to be way more PC focused than I realized. These mid-cycle lulls are more noticeable than ever to me. When I was sixteen, I didn't notice them, but now I'm starting to feel the fatigue.

    What made me think about this seriously for the first time is how much people complain about bad performance in modern games on sub 400 machines. Dark Souls 3, which I just finished on PS4, was unstable from start to finish, frame-rate wise. FFXV was one of the worst experiences I've had with a demo on a console. Some games were super close to their PC counterparts with regards to image quality, like Shadow of Mordor, and I thought, "Why would I need to get a PC when this game looks this good on a 349 box!?"

    With the newer renditions of the consoles costing the same, some people will have shelled out 700 in four years. More than double that if they buy both upgrades. That sounds like a PC type of cost to me, which has triggered this sudden rebellion in me.

    Maybe I'm just becoming snobbier, but I've been configuring PCs on various sites for the last week, and I'm amazed at what you can get. On one, via Scan.co.uk, I had chosen an i7-6700k, an EVGA GTX overclocked 970, 16GB of ram, a lovely NZXT case, a 500gb SSD, plus some other highly-reviewed components for 1300. I'm sure you can get below 1000 and still end up with a night and day gaming experience.

    I think this side of gaming will become more and more viable. I could be wrong, it's just my view. I'm a complete virgin to PC gaming, so maybe I've just been blinded by all the benchmark videos I've been watching, ha.

    Thanks for your reply. It was very reasonable and chill.

    Regarding the headline, the answer isn't a simple yes or no. The consoles will be able to paint a close approximation of DICE's ambition with varying degrees of success, but the dev is known for their work shining on modest to high-end PCs.

    We're in that weird middle period of the PS4 and XONE's lifecycle where we're used to the limitations and want to feel annoyed when games don't quite perform how we think they should, but I'm starting to realize our machines have aged more quickly than in any other generation, and if the rumblings of upgrades are true, it's not just us who's seen that.

    I'm starting to turn the corner as exclusivity becomes ever scarcer, and obtaining a beefy PC gets cheaper and simpler, that I don't have the right to complain about games underperforming on consoles anymore when they're as cheap as they are. Developers have a hard job of meeting certain expectations when they're dealing with two different pieces of aging hardware -- we give them a lot of shit for it, but it must be unbelievably difficult. I understand how a closed system with less raw power can be optimized to punch far above its weight, but I can feel the creaking when I play games on them now. The nostalgic haze is wearing off.

    Whenever I see a game running great on the consoles at 1080p now I'm nothing short of amazed. I'm not slagging them off, I'm very fond of my time with them. There have been some fantastic games and it's been a hell of a run, but like cable TV, more and more people are 'switching' off. I feel like KH3 or The Last Guardian will be my last experience with the consoles; I won't be buying the next ones or the upgraded versions.

    Edit: We all know this, of course. Eventually, the gaming PCs WILL be the consoles sitting under our TVs, or the equivalent of, and will cost what a PS4 did in 2013. Steam machines were the start of that -- a brief glimpse -- so this isn't the end of Sony or Microsoft as gaming figures, far from it. But consoles in their current form are not part of that future. These next ten years will prove that, and it's exciting.

  • AMD "design wins" suggest three upcoming console reveals

  • AnsemsApprentice 22/04/2016

    I have no qualms with paying for incrementally better machines every few years -- last gen went on for far too long -- as long as an upgrade path is available. 150 every three years is more attractive than 400 every six or seven. That's closer to how it used to be, really.

    I'm not paying full price for that though. I will happily say 'fuck you' if that's what is required of people who supported them to begin with. To splash out 700 when the last one came out in 2013 is disgusting to me, personally.

  • Gears of War 4 trailer channels daddy Fenix

  • AnsemsApprentice 11/04/2016

    No one cares about the relationships of Gears characters. No one cared about Marcus' relationship with his dad, with Anya; didn't care when Dom's wife was lobotomized and shot; and they won't care about Fenix senior and junior's relationship. Why the trailer focused on that is beyond me, though I hope further ones will show different aspects, and this is just the initial 'garner interest' stage. The Sound of Silence was a great choice of song, though.

    The screenshots I've seen look very cool. I still want to play it a lot.

    (I'm not saying the trailer sucks, by the way. It's well made.)

  • Finding the humanity in Dark Souls 2

  • AnsemsApprentice 10/04/2016

    The jump in art direction was the biggest revelation about DSII. Lordran was dark and muted like the ashes it was decaying into. Drangleic was vibrant and colourful and its world more in the middle of its downfall; the locations were more detailed and alive than anything in Lordran, outside of the illusory beauty of Anor Londo which was a lie, and the crystalline divinity of Seath's kingdom.

    I had more gasp moments in DSII, from Heide's Tower of Flame spewing its belly fire before a stunning ocean; the mind-boggling walk up to Drangleic Castle in the rain, seemingly chiseled from a mountain of perfect obsidian; the Dragon Aerie, edge of sky to edge of sky dominated with draconic activity; the castle beyond the castle home to the colossal Ancient Dragon.

    The gameplay wasn't as smooth or immediate as it should be -- the backstabs lost their pizzazz, too -- but the extra weapon reinforcements and extra ring slots felt exciting at the time, and the initial terror of your constantly-dwindling health should you die was real. Stuff like mediocre weapon durability on certain weapons and enemies no longer respawning were less welcome changes, also, but manageable.

    It suffered from boss fatigue, too. Many could be removed without causing a change, like the Covetous Demon or the Medusa lady. The giants weren't nearly present enough, story-wise.

    It's a fractured experience at times, but once everything was learned or re-learned, it was quite the experience. I loved it in many of the same ways as DS1 and many new ones, but it's kind of like the more handsome, less intelligent younger brother of Dark Souls 1. To come that close to another almost-perfect game with so much change is saying something, and that's why it's a great game in its own right.

    And this frame-pacing issue plus dropped frames creates noticeable input lag, which adds to the frustration. It's a real shocker at times. I dearly hope it's fixed, and I wish the developers luck. I want this game to run smoothly, because the art direction and graphics are a dream.

    Seriously, delay the game. Don't release it broken and patch it back up to snuff in 2017.

  • Final Fantasy 15 really has a flying car

  • AnsemsApprentice 31/03/2016

    The FF15 demo is a bit troubling to me (I just finished it.) Stuttery, jerky framerate. Janky platforming sequences with a terrible jump animation. Interminably slow combat -- there's a distinct delay between button pushes and actions playing out. Dodging successfully is a case of wrestling with/pre-empting the input lag rather than any actual skill. I've enjoyed games with slower mechanics like that before -- Dark Souls, etc. -- but this felt unintentional. It's no wonder they made it so holding circle to continually attack was a way of overcoming that lag, because the delay feels profound. If they don't fix this stuff, I won't be confident in purchasing it. It just feels very clumsy, and turning the camera always results in dropped frames, which is distracting.

    I'm a huge fan and understand demos aren't finished products, but I'm unconvinced on this game.

  • Face-Off: Dark Souls 3

  • AnsemsApprentice 26/03/2016

    So neither is amazing. That's a shame, but not a total surprise considering what I assume their budget is and all that. Dark Souls 2 seems to be the best From have done technically, and that isn't exactly a ringing endorsement, but the art direction in their work more than makes up for it. I don't see how PS4 owners can be bragging or mocking people who just have Xbox Ones, though. Even the PC version has a bunch of weird issues at the moment, though not performance-wise. I've heard it's quite impressive on PC outside of bonfire crashes.

    I hope an incoming patch can improve things further than the day-one patch has already by the time April 12th rolls up.

  • Ninja Theory announces new name for Hellblade

  • AnsemsApprentice 16/03/2016

    As a huge DMC fan and one who was skeptical of what this company could do with that universe, they proved me wrong and made a very good game. Their best yet, I think. The character definitely wasn't as fun or ridiculous as fan-favourite DMC3 Dante, and that was the main thing naysayers had an issue with, but the cool take on a lot of its themes and the slick gameplay made that a non-issue. 60fps would have impressed even more on consoles.

    Enslaved had very interesting themes -- great writing by Alex Garland -- but I think the game felt incredibly dated even at the time from a gameplay perspective. I found it tedious to play, but liked the characters and their ties to the great Monkey TV show/original novel.

    With this game, I fully expect them to marry everything they've learned to finally produce the experience they've always just missed the mark on. I'm super excited to see what they've been working on.

    And if that's the game cover, it's brilliantly iconic looking. It's like a Japanese Braveheart poster or something, ha.

  • Alan Wake's Return trademark sets tongues wagging

  • AnsemsApprentice 25/02/2016

    I loved the game for what it was, and found the combat thrilling, but the writing is pretty bad, and it isn't the game it seemed to be when they first released footage and screenshots: that was more of an open world with survival horror elements. They stripped it down and added walls around everything. It's a great game and I'm glad I own the special edition; it was worth every penny and I've got fond memories. I need to play it again, actually.

    So while I can't forget my disappointment as the direction became more linear and the reality of those amazing tech demos fizzled out, I would welcome a sequel with open arms, especially if they opened up Alan's world just a little. I don't want GTA, I just want to freely drive around the main little town at least, and hide away until morning when the dark recedes.

    New Nightmare was great too, and felt roomier.

  • Watch this latest Dark Souls 3 gameplay trailer

  • AnsemsApprentice 24/02/2016

    I beat DS1 twice yesterday in 20 hours! I got so pumped for 3 and had to go all OCD on it again, to get myself ready. I bought Scholar of the First Sin today, and hope to beat it and get through the DLC before 3 is out. I'm pumped. Looks better than I expected.

    I was disappointed with how small Bloodborne felt and how unappealing and empty the bosses were to my tastes. Loved the combat, though it was a little on the easy side for a Souls game. I rushed through it. Aesthetically it's a masterpiece, and it's great fun, but its lore and content don't feel as deep as Dark Souls. I think even the director said it felt a little limited, and I agree.

    This looks like a perfect mix of the new style Bloodborne created with the old Souls magic. It has that lovely, frenzied speed of BB.

    Basically, yay.

    I'm deeply worried we've seen barely any footage of the game, and it's three months from release. Is this just how EA does its marketing? Much closer to release dates than other publishers? Or is it something to be concerned over.

    The first game took my breath away. The amazing Solar Fields soundtrack; quick, perfection-encouraging gameplay; and stunning art style. What a punch in the chest of a surprise gem that game was. The DLC was great, too. I hope there are tonnes of time trials in the base game of ME2.

    So do TV companies have to pay money for showing the tatts? Where does it stop? Isn't a game version of a real person just an approximation of reality... A tattoo is part of the body, so it should be illegal to make someone else pay for that, in my opinion. Attention to detail isn't a crime. Zero damage has been done, and certainly nothing close to 1.1 mill.

  • Pimped game controllers with bullets and diamonds - who makes these things?

  • AnsemsApprentice 08/01/2016

    I would happily buy a customized controller if I had the money, but not with gold or diamonds or bullets. That is what people think of as high class, but so many people think that, and it loses its creative value/wow factor. I think that's what people mean when they call it vulgar -- not that the business isn't worth it or worth anything. There's a market for everything, after all. The Bobby George look isn't for most, though.

    I'd have all my controllers Tron-ified in a heartbeat if I could, though, or a T-800 head with the home button as the red eye! Oo, oo, or like they're made of LEGO bricks! GOLDEN LEGO BRICKS... No, that's a step back; calm down...

  • Nuclear Throne review

  • AnsemsApprentice 09/12/2015

    Another Vlambeer baby that oozes styyyyyyle from every frame. I love the underground comic vibe to it all. The gameplay is really addictive, too; quick and nerve-racking. Furthest I've gotten so far is to the end of the fifth stage, but I got trapped in a dead-end with the boss. I had full-health and a tonne of ammo, and died...

    The one thing I hate is the pause menu. Sometimes I'll pause just to get my composure, repeatedly forgetting that the game highlights 'menu' as the default option for the X button. Three times I've hit X, expecting it to be on the 'continue' option, only to dash my awesome run completely and be sent to the main menu. That is extremely frustrating.

    Great game, though. Love it.

    The online thing doesn't bother me to non-purchase levels, but I'd prefer the game not to have it in such a passive way. I'll get it when it's around 19.99 in a PSN sale next year or something. It's not worth full-price from the sounds of its more bare-bones feature set.

    I want it though!

    Fantastic art style; I love all that constantly-shifting inkiness (in the cutscenes). They are cutscenes, right? or just part of the trailer? I hope the animated bits are actually in the game, they're cool.

    The way the character moves reminds me of Bastion kinda.

    Looks refreshing, anyway. I like. Dark yet enchanting.

    Probably my most proud platinum trophy I have. I adored Shovel Knight even more than I thought I would; truly a modern classic, in my opinion. I shall purchase this DLC with haste! Reply +2
  • Borderlands movie in the works

    Joss Whedon knows a thing or two about planetary swashbuckling. I bet he could do something interesting with the Borderlands license.

    Or the Guardians of the Galaxy director (I forget the name).

    Johnny Depp as Mordecai!

    Oh, here we go. More dishonest article titles. I bet it actually looks nothing like Minecra--

    Oh... Cool!
