    Not really as gfx aren't such a high priority for me!
    So good graphics aren't a priority for you, yet you were the first to mention that the Xbone has "the best looking console games." If it doesn't matter to you why mention it? Talking out of your backside again aren't you?

    I have been personally more impressed overall with the visuals in Xbox One exclusives
    No surprise there. In your world Xbox wins at everything, even when it objectively loses. Whilst Forza Horizon 2 is critically a better game than DriveClub, if you honestly believe that hand on heart it is a better looking game then I strongly suggest a visit to an ophthalmologist.

    However, you speak as though it's a purely objectional thing and people cannot have their own interpretation on the matter

    Objectional isn't a word :rolleyes:

    And you don't need subjectivity when it's as clear as day.

    Likewise, Halo 4 is a better looking game to my eyes than either the dreary and artistically poor KZ2/3
    You actually said something I agree with. There's a shock! The Halo games are indeed far better artistically. But Shadow Fall on the PS4 easily bests anything in the Halo MCC. Although I will concede that is an unfair comparison considering SF is a full blown PS4 title whereas the MCC are just prettied up ports.

    Though I'm not surprised with your viewpoint on this topic given that you believe the X1 can't handle running MGS:GZ and PES '15 in 1080p.
    Here is a list of games where the Xbone version has a lower resolution than its PS4 equivalent. Brackets indicate the PS4 resolution, whilst games in bold are either Xbox exclusive or timed-exclusive:

    Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - 900p (1080p)
    Battlefield 4 - 720P (900p)
    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - Adaptive 1080p resolution (1080p locked)
    Call of Duty: Ghosts - 720p (1080p)
    Dead Rising 3 - 720p
    Dragon Age: Inquisition - 900p (1080p)
    Far Cry 4 - 1400x1080 (1080p)
    Golf Club - 720p (1080p)
    Halo 2 Anniversary - 1328x1080
    Killer Instinct Season One - 720p
    Killer Instinct Season Two - 900p
    Lords of the Fallen - 900p (1080p)
    Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes - 720p (1080p)
    Metro: Redux - 912p (1080p)
    Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor - 900p (1080p)
    Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare - 900p (1080p)
    Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 - 720p (1080p)
    Ryse: Son of Rome - 900p
    Shadow Warrior - 900p (1080p)
    Sunset Overdrive - 900p
    The Evil Within - 900p (1080p)
    Thief - 900p (1080p)
    Titanfall - 792p
    Trials Fusion - 900p (1080p)
    Watch Dogs - 792p (900p)

    Considering just how many other Xbone games fail to match the PS4's resolution, including MS' own exclusives, then no it's not hard to believe that the MS hardware is to blame. It's only YOU who refuses to accept that, despite clear objective evidence. With that I rest my case. Have fun living in the Xbox Cloud cuckoo land :)

    Sorry, but how can an objectively weaker console have "more scope for potential" than an objectively stronger one? Do you even listen to yourself before your fingers hit the keyboard? And sorry to burst your bubble, but whilst Killzone may not be as good a game overall as Halo it blows it away in terms of graphical quality, both on PS3 and PS4.

    The same goes for DriveClub versus Forza and Infamous: SS versus Sunset Overdrive. The Xbone simply cannot stand up to PS4 exclusives graphically. Ryse is the only game that comes close and it's not even an Xbone exclusive. That must really make your skin crawl ;)

    I didn't include Halo MCC as an example of a good remaster because it isn't one. Ignoring the poor online issues, it just runs very inconsistently and you'll find the reasons why from other member's responses to you as well as the DF article.

    As for Konami; they haven't failed at anything. If the Xbone can't handle their engine at 1080p/60fps it's clearly a hardware issue. Countless other face offs have shown the PS4 to command a higher frame-rate and/or resolution. The Xbone couldn't even handle a prettied up port of Tomb Raider at a locked 30fps, yet the PS4 was consistently operating at 50ps and higher. There's only so much you can blame the developers for.

  • Big-Boss 25/01/2015

    So the only good remasters so far are Metro Redux, The Last of Us and GTAV. Considering just how many other "remasters" have been released that's shameful. Why these developers aren't hitting 60fps is baffling. The hardware is ten times more powerful than last-gen. It isn't rocket science. Konami is hitting full 1080p/60fps on PS4 with the current-gen focussed, open world MGSV. There are zero excuses for these poor ports. Reply +10

  • Resident Evil HD Remaster review

  • Big-Boss 22/01/2015

    I completely agree with Jason_Forrester and Dalamar42 and I take similar issue with this review for a number of reasons, so I'll try to avoid what's already been stated. When the PS4/Xbone version of GTAV was released EG published the original review and claimed that because nothing had changed the original verdict still stood. Fair enough......but wait, that makes them come across as complete hypocrites because they posted a Halo Master Chief Collection review just a few days before the GTAV remaster came out!

    Since there is already a review for the Wii version, which itself was a direct port of the Gamecube version (not originally reviewed on EG) and awarded an 8/10, why wasn't it reposted? Almost none of the criticisms mentioned in this review were a problem back in 2009. I don't think horror games have really moved that far forward in five and a bit years that this game loses a whole mark for staying the same. This is not a re-make; it is a re-release. Why is the game being punished for staying the same? It has just brought the presentation up to modern standards (1080p resolution, 16:9 widescreen, direction based controls etc). Nothing else.

    So why didn't you post the original review with the original score? That was after all your reason for not re-reviewing GTAV despite the inclusion of a brand new first-person view mode. You lot at are really starting to come across as an unprofessional bunch that seem to change the rules when it suits you. Do you even have any guidelines when it comes to re-releases? Because right now it seems to hinge on whether a member of your team can be bothered to replay an old game or not.

    Finally, and it's already been mocked by others, but attacking the mansion setting for its "implausibility" is comedy gold. Please do provide us with a similar arguments for future games, especially those super realistic, Michael Bay explosion fests that military FPS games have mutated into. I'm sure their "implausibility" won't stop you dishing out 8s, 9s and 10s though.

  • Face-Off: Resident Evil HD Remaster

  • Big-Boss 21/01/2015

    I'll be passing on this for a number of reasons. First of all I still have access to the original, so the only need to upgrade would be if this new version had noticeable improvements. After playing it at a mate's place there seems to be no gameplay improvements whatsoever bar the inclusion of a new control scheme which actually makes it harder to play the game. The game was designed around the classic tank controls, so shoehorning a directional based option was never going to work.

    1080p definitely results in improved image quality over the 480i GC original, but when the assets haven't been redrawn the impact is far less noticeable. And whilst 60fps isn't necessary for a game like this it should have been thrown in anyway just to make the package shine. Forget PS4/Xbone, the PS360 should be able to handle this game at 60fps without breaking a sweat. But lazy Capcom once again fail to put the effort in.

    Finally the price is ludicrous. 16 for what is effectively a 1080p port of a 13 year old game is daylight robbery. Some Capcom apologists will argue that you get both the PS3/4 versions (not sure if Xbox is cross-buy but I doubt it considering it's MS) for that price but if you have one version, especially the PS4, why would you ever want to downgrade to the 720p PS3 version? Cross-buy would only have made sense if this game was also coming out on the Vita. Since Revelations 2 is coming to the Vita it really begs the question as to why this isn't either.

    TLDR; if you never owned a GC then by all means go ahead and get it because it's a stone cold classic. But I urge you to wait for it to drop in price first because there is no way this game is worth 16 when all that's been improved is the resolution, marginally better lighting and a widescreen option.

    I stand corrected. Must've missed that one as I'm not a PC gamer. I think I'll join the folk calling for a re-review now but it seems EG are very selective when doing one. There are many many games that could have done with a re-review over the past few years yet hardly any have got one. Think EG need to find some consistency, but then again they've been highly inconsistent with a lot of things over the past year or so.

  • Big-Boss 19/01/2015


    I don't own an Xbone and I agree with you 100%. If DC was delayed for three months and launched with all the content they are adding now, it would be sitting pretty with 80+ Metacritic scores similar to FH2. Sony's mismanagement is the reason it was released unfinished despite suffering nearly a year's worth of delays. But I don't know why you're trying to use logic, that has never been allowed when discussing exclusives remember ;)

    You only have to scroll towards the top to find a completely accurate comment I posted highlighting the reasons for the luke-warm reviews - the huge amount of missing content and broken online - has been negged without receiving a single response, despite me calling DC an excellent game. In fact I'm playing it right now! Just thought I'd come and witness the hypocrisy on this site after taking a break from doing that bastard hard Marussia Drift event in Tour mode :rolleyes:

  • Big-Boss 19/01/2015

    EG don't re-review games so I do hope people stopped asking for one with this game. The DF team already made it clear in their analysis that they disagreed with Mike's review. That should be enough.

    That being said I received DriveClub as a present over Christmas and it's an excellent racing game. But the quality of the game now doesn't excuse the mess it was at launch. There was practically no online mode, users couldn't create clubs (or access them when they eventually did get to create one), no weather, no photo mode and a lot of other niggles. There are still no replays yet either. Most of it is fixed though which is great so hopefully the free updates keep on coming.

    Edit: Ah as expected - a bunch of negative votes from idiotic Sony fanboys for stating facts with not a single person offering a retort :rolleyes:

    Edit 2: It has been pointed out that EG do, albeit rarely, re-review games so I retract my original statement. The rest of my argument still stands though.

    Don't get me wrong I understand what you're saying. But with GTAV being such a massive game I can't imagine there's too many PC only gamers who haven't played it yet. I'd rob a friend/family member's console for a month just to play it if I was on PC only! :P

    Surely all PC gamers that wanted to play it will have bought it by now on another platform? If Rockstar can actually meet the release this time it'll be 18 months since the game originally released on PS360. I can only imagine most PC sales will be for gamers double dipping as I simply can't imagine too many people will have waited this long to play such an outstanding game. Reply -1

    It's interesting that MS are unlocking power reserves so early on to catch up with the PS4 yet Sony are still offering developers the original level of access and still outperforming their competitor. The gap will only widen when Sony starts to unlock future PS4 reserves and the Xbone has no additional grunt left to unleash. Reply +23

    So last gen this was an Xbox fanboy site then with it having a 7 million lead at the start and winning the majority of face offs? I'm sure you'll agree with that given your silly justification as to why a PS4 exclusive placed slightly higher than a game on your favoured platform. By your logic, how the hell did Mario Kart 8 finish in first place when the Wii U has a lower install base than both Sony and MS? It's not like it was the only good exclusive on the console last year so everyone voted for it is it? Your comment was completely out of place and as a moderator better is expected of you.

  • Xbox One vs PlayStation 4: Year One

  • Big-Boss 21/12/2014


    After watching that AC: Unity patch 4 video it puts to bed the claims that the PS4 has a CPU bottleneck. Both versions are running pretty much exactly the same, with both suffering drops at the exact same time and locations. The PS4 version actually ran unlocked if no patches were installed which is also interesting. It proves the PS4 is capable of more if it wasn't glaringly obvious already.

    Unfortunately whilst there's now parity, albeit forced, it still isn't up to an acceptable level of performance. I've mentioned it before and I'll say it again: locked 30fps is the absolute bare minimum requirement for every game this gen.

    In response to the article; please explain what you describe as "next-gen gameplay" because that phrase means absolute fuck all to me. There is no such thing. You claim that BF4 came the closest with its 64 player battles but the PS3 was doing 256 player battles with zero lag or problems since day one with MAG. Where was the praise for that? Sure it might not have been the best game ever but it worked and was at the very least a proof of concept. And people wonder why so many question EG's logic.

    Their website is rarely updated and their review scores have always been all over the shop.
    Their website is updated every other magazine issue. They are still very much a print based gaming publication.

    Edge giving DC an 8/10 and FH2 a 7/10 is just pandering to the majority (more PS4 owners than XB1 owners).

  • Last-gen revisited: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

  • Big-Boss 17/12/2014

    See, I'm of the opinion that developers can't be bothered with last-gen anymore. If these games were only coming out on the PS360 do you honestly think they would release them in such a bad state? I don't think so. With all the paring back on the graphical detail I see no reason why this game (or other last-gen ports for that matter) couldn't perform well on last-gen hardware.

    Look at Forza Horizon 2 and Little Big Planet 3 on last-gen - they are both obviously pared back but do they look or run as bad as this game? No, because the publishers and developers actually gave a shit. WB does not. Shadow of Mordor is a brilliant game on current-gen, so I hope very few people choose to experience this hack job on the older consoles.

  • Destiny: The Dark Below review

  • Big-Boss 15/12/2014

    I drew the line at the cost of the DLC, but since selling it I've had time to reflect on my time with it and reached the conclusion that I was bored way before I sold it. I've read that some people have played it for 300+ hours and thought "hey, I must've played it for at least half that time." But no, after checking my forgotten about Destiny app I have only played the game for 71 hours and 23 minutes. The grind started at the 40 hour mark for me, but that statistic surprised me.

    I must've replayed each area and strike at least five times during that time. That includes my time spent with the multi-player which was the game's saving grace IMO. So just how many times have players grinded the same old areas and bosses if they've spent 300+ hours with it? People keep using the excuse that the gameplay is great so they keep playing. But that argument can be levelled at every single game in existence.

    The game has been in beta since day one and still is. Bungie have zero confidence in their product. The game has been changed and reset so many times since launch in response to play criticism (which Bungie cutely labels "feedback") that I doubt any of their vision for the game is still present.

    I feel sorry for people, especially in the UK that forked out 20 for this. It's an insult considering there is no actual new content but rather an unlock key for new areas on the same old planets. By the time the next DLC hits Bungie will have decided to reset something else and piss people off even more. What I don't understand is that the Bungie forums are filled with people raging at the game yet they still keep playing it. Why would someone keep playing something that pisses them off so much? Isn't the whole point of gaming to escape reality and have fun? Why do it if it just stresses you out?

  • Video: Why you might not want to pre-order The Order

  • Big-Boss 12/12/2014

    I do hope this is the start of something good from EG. From now on I expect videos for ALL games that look promising but recommend caution. Ian also admitted in this video that The Crew is broken yet you guys still awarded it an 8/10. How do you expect your readership to take you seriously? Battlefield 4 got an 8 and Halo MCC somehow managed a 9. LBP 3 is the only game you guys have downgraded for having bugs and glitches so far. Where's the consistency?

    I strongly suggest a revision of your review policies because recent reviews have been very poor and lacking crucial information. Maybe tone down on the humour and elegance and actually focus on what matters most to your audience - we don't receive games for free from publishers and have to fork out our hard earned cash for them after all. We'd appreciate as much information as possible about a game; not a third of a review dedicated to an analysis of an advertising photo ala Singstar.

    Well FFX will be 25 on disc closer to launch anyway, the PS3 version cost as much, but 12.99 is a rip-off for FFVII. Didn't it launch at 7.99 on the PC? Why the 5 console tax?

    This is basically for anyone who only owns a PS4. If you own any other PS console there are better value options available. The PSone classic is regularly available at half price for 4 and unless you're desperate for trophies is a much better option.

  • The Crew review

  • Big-Boss 10/12/2014

    This is the highest score awarded to the game so far. Isn't this the same guy who gave DriveClub a 6 for being soulless? If that was soulless and a 6 then The Crew is a 4 at best. It's been described as bland, boring, sterile, having a game structure pushing heavily towards microtransactions, having rubbish, glitchy A.I and a forced online only model which isn't required for the single player similar to Destiny.

    Oh and the graphics are AWFUL by 2014 standards. Last-gen GTAV pisses all over it visually, let alone the current-gen versions. I'd appreciate it if Mike could explain how he missed all of those issues and managed to place The Crew in the same league as the sublime Burnout Paradise - another EG 8/10 open world racer.

    Having played both this and DC at my cousin's place recently I know where my money will eventually be going. The driving model in The Crew is horrendous. It feels like driving a boat rather than a car. Future racing game reviews by Mike will most likely be ignored if this is his level of standards for a racing game. All of his racing game reviews for EG so far (Gran Turismo 6, DriveClub, The Crew) have lacked a tonne of crucial information with a false score placed at the end. None of his scores have matched the review text IMO.

    If I'm being even more critical, I level that blame on all the EG writers. They appear to be more concerned with having fancy prose and "elegant" writing as opposed to having a review packed with information useful to the reader. Their Fifa 15 review was another extremely poor one. Ellie's recent Singstar review spent the first third describing a bloody advertising picture using unfunny, forced humour instead of actually being critical. Where have the standards gone for this site?

    Back to the subject at hand; I've grown tired of every single racing game shoehorning open world elements and a story into them. The last one I truly enjoyed was NFS: Most Wanted 2012. The old school Ridge Racer and Project Gotham games are held in such high regard because of their focus on circuit racing with fixed track layouts.

    Why is it then that when a game gets released in the modern era with said features it is criticised and docked points for it? It seems a game can be mediocre but as long as it has open world rubbish, a story and collectibles it automatically earns bonus kudos.

    I don't really see how MS publishing RotTR means anything more than it did before. They also published the original Mass Effect and it went multiplatform. Sony also picked up the publishing deal for Ghostbusters in Europe but it expired within eight months or so.

    Plus didn't Spencer already admit in his previous convoluted interview that the deal has a duration? I doubt anything has changed in that respect. I've said it before and I'll say it again - both RotTR and SFV will eventually appear on the "other" console.

  • Is Uncharted 4 the generational leap we were hoping for?

  • Big-Boss 08/12/2014

    Well I was impressed, especially considering it was pre-alpha footage. Definite room for improvement in terms of graphics and frame-rate but the gameplay has seen clear evolution. Those expecting a revolution, and I include EG in this - what sequel to a last-gen game has offered a revolution? None of them have, they're all prettier, more refined versions of what came before. I don't see why a game should be criticised for that.

    The level shown off was much bigger than a typical Uncharted battlefield. The weapons sound a lot better. The hand-to-hand combat has been improved further. The traversal has been given more freedom with new ways to climb and get around. The stealth looks a lot better which I am most happy about as the stealth was scripted in the first three Uncharted games and could only be initiated when the game said so.

    It looks a lot more free-form now as shown by the enemies losing sight of Drake mid-combat and ceasing fire whilst they try and find him. When that happened in the PS3 games they seemed to track and shoot Drake telepathically which was extremely annoying on the harder difficulties.

    All in all I'm happy with the improvements to the gameplay. They now have nearly a year to pretty the whole thing up and hit a solid 60fps. This is Naughty Dog we are talking about here. They have never failed to deliver and Uncharted 4 will be no different.

    Agreed, but it does affect prices as time goes by. I remember the PS1 Final Fantasy games, regardless of condition sold for near 50 each. Then once the catalogue started to release digitally the prices started to plummet. Unless someone still has a sealed, original print copy lying around they aren't worth that much anymore. The guide for FF7 sells more than the actual game these days! :)

  • 1.4GB DriveClub update adds dynamic weather

  • Big-Boss 08/12/2014

    Looks like it's finally coming out of beta and into retail form. All they need now is to add full replays and it'll be the working game it should have been at launch. Hopefully Sony release the Plus version soon now that servers have (mostly) stabilised because I have been wanting to try this. Gameplay was never DC's weak point but rather it's lack of features and broken online. Those criticisms seem to be almost fully addressed now so it should be a decent game.

    Can't help but think that if Sony had delayed this a little more until Jan or Feb and released the working, more feature-rich version that we have today it would have likely scored 8s and 9s from the press. Hopefully a lesson learnt for Sony and Evolution. The devs clearly care about the game and have shown as much with their updates but if a sequel ever happens it needs to be handled much, much better than this.

    This looked ridiculous. In a good way of course! Could end up being a pretty fun game if it's priced right and receives regular updates. Reply +7

    This announcement was a huge let down. My heart skipped a beat for a second when I thought they were finally announcing a remake. I'll stick to my PSOne classic thanks. Reply +10

    You didn't seriously just mention Killer Instinct in the same breath as Street Fighter......

    Presumably all the people who made a lot of noise about tomb raider being a times exclusive on xbo, will make a similar amount of fuss about this.


    Oh, ok then.
    There are a lot of people making a fuss actually, myself included and rightly so. Have you even read the comments? It is interesting though that you posted this in the RotTR exclusivity article:

    Huge coup for MS.

    Cue legions of Playstation 4 owners crying salty tears and bitching about it, even while they happily trump the PS4 exclusives without a trace of irony.
    Wonder why you didn't post something similar here? Oh wait, it's because you're the MS fanboy darkmorgado who just got an EG mod to change his username. Your mad man rants prior to the release of PS4 that claimed Sony was lying to everyone about using GDDR5 RAM, and that it would be downgraded for the final product were HILARIOUS by the way :rolleyes:

    So it's ok for MS to make Rise of the Tomb Raider an exclusive yet Sony is made out to be the bad guy.
    Where have I said that? Here are two comments I made when the original RotTR exclusivity article was posted:

    Guess I'll have to make do with Uncharted 4 then. MS really need to learn to fight their battles with fresh ideas and internal investment rather than throwing money and whoring publishers out. Dead Rising 3, Ryse and Titanfall didn't help the Xbone gain any significant ground on the PS4. Neither will Tomb Raider. But if this is the path that MS want to continue taking then I'm happy to continue avoiding them.
    And when it was confirmed as a timed exclusive:

    Happy days, I'll buy the definitive edition pre-owned when it releases on PS4. Pre-owned because I supported SE with not one, but two purchases of the original after buying it on both the PS3 and 360 because I enjoyed it so much. But they decided to fuck me and many others over for the sequel so it looks like SE won't see my money either way. Funny how things work out.
    So I have fairly criticised both MS and Sony for their practices, you'll see no bias from me. SFV, if and when I decide to purchase it will be a pre-owned purchase. Capcom will already have been paid by Sony so I'm sure they won't miss my money all that much :rolleyes:

    The Bayonetta 2 deal is completely different. The original sold poorly and there was zero chance of a sequel happening. Nintendo decided to fund it so a sequel was born and it was exclusive to the Wii U. Nintendo also published it. It did not and will not come to the PC because of said Nintendo funding.

    If the same was true of SFV then why is it coming to the PC? I strongly doubt Sony is publishing it. Platform holders would in no way fund a game being released on a rival platform. Also, all main previous SF games were big sellers. They made money which is why we got so many updates to SF2, 3 and especially 4. Capcom DO have a budget for SFV and that's made clear by this announcement. Sony aren't doing any good guy thing here.

    Can you stop with your completely made up excuses for this exclusivity please. Money exchanged hands, just like with the Tomb Raider Xbone deal. I know you adore PlayStation but how is the SF brand tied to it? It's associated more with Nintendo and the SNES if anything.

    Your love of Sony really does blind you from the truth. Sony aren't saints; they're not taking pity on Capcom and helping fund it. Capcom aren't broke. Money talks simple as.

    Oh FFS! This timed exclusive bullshit needs to stop. All it does it punish owners of the other console and without reason. Maybe all the Sony fanboys can now finally stop with their whiter than white treatment of Sony. This sort of news shouldn't be celebrated.

    On the plus side, it's pretty much guaranteed that even if vanilla SFV doesn't come to the Xbone, all future Super and Ultra updates most definitely will.

  • Resogun is coming to Vita and PS3 this month

  • Big-Boss 05/12/2014

    I'd rather the game was 60fps, it adds a lot to the fast paced gameplay. Housemarque should have toned down the graphics and effects and kept the 60fps refresh instead. Still, the more people that get to play the game the better. It's brilliant. Reply +3
  • Resident Evil HD release date announced

  • Big-Boss 04/12/2014

    Too expensive, typical of Capcom. Considering how lazy their other "HD" ports have been I'd be willing to pay 10 maximum for this. Will wait for it to go on sale before buying. Reply 0
  • Why are Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands more expensive on PS4 than on Xbox One?

  • Big-Boss 04/12/2014

    I'm surprised that no one has complained about the sudden price hike of Destiny on the PS store. It's gone up from its already ridiculous price to an absolutely shocking 89.99! :| Reply +6
  • Destiny will upgrade your exotics - but there's a heavy price to pay

  • Big-Boss 04/12/2014

    Sold my copy yesterday after a heavy two and a half months of play. Hit level 27 but never got higher thanks to requiring Raid Level gear. The Raid remains the only on-disc content I didn't get to play in Destiny and that's mainly because of a lack of matchmaking.

    The highest number of friends I had to play it with was four. That, and the rip-off DLC is the main reason I decided to sell. Bungie are being unnecessarily stubborn with matchmaking and Activision are ripping us off on DLC pricing. Lose-lose situation for the customer.

    It also seems like Bungie are now making the rules up as they go along. A paid-for beta if you like. I expect Destiny 2 to be pretty good in 2016 once they've finally completed the original by the end of 2015. It might even have a story! :P
