  • ChemicalBR0 11/09/2015

    I don't understand why more devs don't work this way.

    lead develop on the PC and scale down from there.
    (both the ps4 and xb1 run x86 code anyway)

    its literally just a case of changing graphics options or putting a framecap.

    everybody wins. PC gamers get their high fps smooth gameplay. console players get a solid game that looks great.

    the fact that this game runs so well on all platforms kinda proves it is the logical way to do it.

    its always easier to take stuff away from a high quality product than to try and bolt stuff onto a lower quality product.
    (pc ports from consoles last gen kinda showed that to be true)

    everybody gets the best that their machine is capable of.

  • Forza Motorsport 6 takes us back to the series' heyday

  • ChemicalBR0 11/09/2015

    @Simatron3000 dirt rally is PAINFULLY realistic :)

    i've got about 30 hours in that game and i think i've only ever managed 1 clean stage (and im still only allowed to drive a mini cooper, i hate to think what's gonna happen when i get in that 80's lancia :)

    its punishing on the wrists also if you are using a FFB wheel. (the most i can manage in one sitting is 3 or 4 stages then i have to stop because of the pain in my arms, it's a proper workout.

  • Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is series' biggest UK launch

  • ChemicalBR0 07/09/2015

    @J_C_X LOL here's exactly how it will go this gen.

    the ps4 and xbox 1 use pc components,pc code all on pc architecture (all machines X86 based)

    all devs have to do is create an all bells and whistles pc version and move the graphics sliders down a bit in the options menu for the consoles (then remove the menu) maybe dial back the physics a bit if its a physics based game, a couple of tweaks here and there and they are good to go.

    they are essentially only creating 1 set of code for the 3 platforms.

    MGS always was and always will be a playstation game that's why the fan base isn't there on xbox or pc.

  • Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain review

  • ChemicalBR0 06/09/2015

    @Some_Goats half of the prologue isn't playable. (the prologue lasts 1hr 10 mins (according to steam playtime) are you trying to tell me you were in control of the character for 40 of those minutes? because i know for a fact you were not.

    but yeah i did manage to get through it eventually (knew there was gonna be a good game in there somewhere as i played ground zeroes and have played a couple of the mgs games over the years) the missions themselves are great fun (open world....nope) but fun none the less.

    as you say there is a good game in there , so long as you can see past all the nonsense (story? what story?)
    the god awful wooden voice "acting"
    and the crazy japaneseness :) of it all.

    the credits before and after every mission WTF is that all about? doesn't make it more cinematic just more laughable.

    it also denies any surprises , you pretty much know what baddies you're going up against before you start the missions. (crazy crazy design imo)

    but yes i will agree with you , the underlying game is great one you finally get into it.

  • Metal Gear Solid 5's bonkers birthday surprise

  • ChemicalBR0 03/09/2015

    let me guess the birthday party is yet another fkin cutscene.

    EG spoiled nothing for me because I did't even have the sanity to get through the hour+ cut scene intro with about 5 mins total where i was in control (if you want to call it control on the pc version)

    I'll have to force myself to load this up again.

    I wouldn't have minded the cut scenes if they had made any sense whatsoever but alas it was a nonsense illogical mish mash of god knows who's imagination (hope i never meet the person that came up with it because i'd doubt their ability to form a meaningful sentence.

    one of the best things i've ever done to my pc.
    have i seen any of the so called friends since i did that? maybe 1 or 2, hence they were not my friends just people i happened to know.

    i bet 99% of most peoples facebook "friends" fall into the category of
    people you don't really give a fuck about.

    your TRUE friends you can reach by much more private means. we all have phones and your REAL friends number is bound to be on there.

    @dennett316 So if i run a game on my pc at 720p then go to the options and change it to 1080p i've just done an HD remaster?

    I don't think so, remaster means you take the original material and improve on it (and that doesn't just mean taking it from vinyl and putting it on a cd or upping the resolution of a game) both those scenarios are a 5 minute job and require no re-anything

    the people who invented football and made the rules were english they called it football for hundreds of years until they started playing it in the USA where they already had a game called football (even tho you use your hands and don't even use a ball) it was the americans that invented the word soccer and they had nothing to do with creating the game or it's rules.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight is another step away from the intimacy of Arkham Asylum

  • ChemicalBR0 28/05/2015

    @Cartho spoze that any game in a series has to be more of the same, there's no real way around it.

    every james bond film is more of the same because its the same main character doing what he does only the locations and actor playing blofeld change :)

    im totally with you on the inconsistencies of game journalism nowadays.
    in 1 game something is slated but in a different game by their fave developer the exact same thing is allowed to slip.

    every game should be reviewed without bias but sadly most of these people are not professional enough to do that. (however in their defence a review is an opinion) which is why i don't pay much attention to them.

    @Mar27w exactly .I like to call the batman combat quicktime fighting it is so easy to get good at its almost laughable.

    its practically guitar hero with punches. punch (1.2) block (1.2) takedown (3.4) it's way too rhythmic.

    it does look on screen as if combat is flowing and you are a complete badass but it doesn't take much skill at all or feel that good when you are doing it.

    i remember getting asylum and a friend seen me play it for the first time and he was like "how the fk are you doing all that"
    when i told him it was 1 button to punch 1 to block and a 2 button combo for a takedown. he was like "where's the challenge in that?"

    128 hit flawless round in city that wasn't even that difficult to do, serious concentration, quick reactions and pressing the correct button is all that's needed, there's really no tactical element to the fighting whatsoever

  • What can we learn from The Witcher 3 "downgrade" fiasco?

  • ChemicalBR0 28/05/2015

    the game is absolutely brilliant (controls can be dodgy at times tho)

    it still looks fantastic, sure its not as good as that original trailer but it's still a gorgeous game (I do wish tho that they had dialed back the colour saturation a bit as its a little too colourful for my liking)

    I have witnessed no fiasco

    if they had refined the controls a bit more then for me this would be GOTY material (it still is but it could have been so much better control wise)

    its a bit like when you go into burger king and look at those pictures of their whopper which looks amazing.
    you get it in the box and its a pile of stuff thrown together into some semblance of a burger..... still tastes fkin great tho so people don't complain much.

    on the other hand if what you got looked exactly like the picture on the wall but tasted like glue and shit everybody would be up in arms

  • What does it take to run GTA 5 at 1080p60?

  • ChemicalBR0 16/04/2015

    @Boom-Q identical system to mine

    it will run absolutely fantastic
    if you want a next to constant 60 fps use very high on everything in the main graphics settings (except for soft shadows and tessellation which you can set at high)
    In advance menu turn off long shadows and set distance and shadow scaling to about 50%).

    if you don't mind the odd drop to the 40fps region in busy areas of the city bang everything up as high as it can go.

    (I did a test last night where I was out in blaine county (next to the cable car) and I turned v-sync off... it was hitting over 120fps. (pointless on a 60hz monitor but I was curious)

    R* have done a good job on this one for a change
    people probably down voted you because when they read your specs they were like WTF dude that's a firkin awesome machine of course it will run it great. :)

  • Has Rockstar really downgraded GTA 5?

  • ChemicalBR0 02/04/2015

    @Unholy_Witchcraft you missed my point.
    these consoles ARE pc's with all the bullcrap that comes with it.

    so why not spend another couple of hundred and at least get a half decent pc.

    i'[ve owned practically every console ever made but with this gen i just don't see the point I already have a killer PC I don't need to buy another low spec one to play the one or 2 exclusives i like. the only game in the past that was guaranteed to sell me a playstation was turismo. but after gt6 more or less just GT5 with some tracks (which could have been DLC) they can shove GT7 where the sun don't shine I felt completely ripped off paying full price for GT6 then i put it in my ps3 and have to sit through half an hour of patch downloads... FK THAT.

    for me personally console gaming should be about pick up and play gaming. turn the machine on stick a disk in and be playing within 2 minutes.

    nowadays gaming on a console is actually a worse experience than it is on PC, if you had said that to me about 4 or 5 years ago i'd have laughed in your face.

  • ChemicalBR0 01/04/2015

    @7M7 that is nail on the head right there. I said it last gen on the ps3 and 360 that it was getting too much like pc gaming with all the patches etc (every now and then i would get the urge to pop in GT5 for a quick game... or so i thought then have to sit through 20 mins of updates.that's not what console gaming is about, its about slam in a cartridge or disk and be playing in no more than a minute.

    The new consoles are essentially just pc's with a custom OS anyway so why bother (and entry level gaming pc's at that). they have all pc parts running x86 code so why not just save another couple of hundred quid and build your own pc that will outperform both of em.

  • ChemicalBR0 23/12/2014

    @mogsy it is playable with KB/mouse (its not that great (how could it be you're flying a spaceship KB/mouse just doesn't fit that) but it's there)
    and it has docking computers but you have to buy it (think its around $4000 or something)
    and anyways i can land WAY WAY better then the docking computer.

    sure it gets the job done and plays you the blue danube but it has no finesse, no style :)

    i fitted one, used it once, sold it and went back to manual landing

    I've never played eve but have played X series to death.

    if you like X you will LOVE elite.

    the interface is a thousand times more intuative than any x game

    @Scimarad I know right...
    i think i've gone into a landing pad the wrong way once and i've been playing since beta 2.

    I don't think people are getting confused landing at the enclosed stations as you enter them facing the way you are meant to land (coreolis etc) its the stations that are open and you can approach from any direction.

    still its not that confusing once you've done it a couple of times.

    what i like to do is approach from directly above the pad (i know there's no above below up or down in space but for the sake of argument

    as in flying nose first straight into the pad at a distance. (as if it was a target)

    then once i can see the features of the pad like the little thrust ramp and control tower i roll the ship so my nose will be pointing the correct way once i level the ship out (the ship obviously rolls quicker than it yaws)

    I think the confusion is coming from people not thinking about the fact they are flying in space with no up down left or right. they are thinking of it as flying a plane on earth.

    theres 6 degrees of freedom in the flight model. Use it :)

  • Why Xbox One's ambitious media strategy failed

  • ChemicalBR0 23/05/2014

    @null you wrongly assume that anybody making a negative comment about MS is a sony fanboy

    I am a gamer, I own whatever console or machine has games i want,

    I was commenting on what microsoft has done with the xbone at no point in my previous comment did i even mention Sony.

    at the moment i have not bought any of the new gen consoles as nothing so far has impressed me enough to put down the cash.

    I have both a 360 and ps3 from previous gen but I game mostly on pc at this moment in time for the simple fact that at this moment in time that platform performs the best.

    (both companies IMO had the chance to deliver those kinda visuals and effects to the masses with their next gen consoles. both have failed to deliver so far)

    my current consoles get used when exclusives come out , they are a tool to play a particular game nothing more.

    MS failed to get the idea that console buyers want a machine that plays games,end of design brief.

    I don't give a damn who makes the machine the game is running on. being loyal to a manufacturer is absolutely batshit crazy if you ask me.

    I don't care what a company did in the market 10 years ago, what are you doing now? oh you're making an all in one set top box that just happens to play games. um count me out.

    maybe now that ms has given up on all its media and Kinect shite the console will be worth buying and ill get one if the right games come along.

    Sony still have to impress me with a couple of must have games before ill get a ps4.

    coz at the end of the day neither of them can even come close to sniffing my pc's tail so they gotta get them exclusives out and they gotta be frikin good not the same old tired franchises with purty graphics.

    I am HUGE fan of forza but is it worth buying a XBone just to get FM5.. hell no. all the other games you mentioned are either not up my street or i can get on the pc where they are gonna look better and run smoother (you seriously don't wanna see BF4 running on a pc at ultra compared to the xbone)

    so to sum it up for me it is ALL about the exclusive games nothing else will sell me a console.

    "but there's the sense that Microsoft is finally listening."

    they don't have any option now but to listen.
    the xb1 was designed as a cash cow from the very start as it became clear to MS that consumers are not as stupid as they thought the U turns started.

    they totally misread the games market.

    MOST of those hardcore gamers already own an all in one media device... (I'm typing on mine right now) practically every house has a pc that can do all that stuff

    so no MS are not listening they are just slowly realizing that consumers of games consoles won't take their shit.

    gamers wanted a games console and MS are finally working that out

  • Don't Starve review

  • ChemicalBR0 18/01/2014

    @ATARI no not all. a lot of that 90Gb is Plugins and other music software logic for example has a full install size of about 48Gb. the maschine stock library of drum samples is around 8Gb (its a lot of drums :)) and i also have about 10 DVD's worth of commercial sample packs. only a tiny percentage of that is stuff i will use tho. but its nice to have as you can edit the samples.. chop bits you like out ,stretch them add effects and generally manipulate them to make it your own unique sound.

    I am planning on getting A package called Komplete by native instruments and the sound library of that beast is 120Gb.
    the music stuff was starting to take over my gaming rig, hence the dedicated computer. that example was made entirely in Maschine, no other software used. (unless you count massive (massive is a software synthesizer) which I used for the synth and bass sounds but that also comes as part of maschine so the library isn't just samples, there's quite a few plugins (virtual instruments and effects) in the package also.

    anyways NONE of this has anything to do with the review of Don't starve so I'll shut the hell up now :)

    @ATARI yeah we did speak about mashine before (my avatar on here is the maschine controller). You can sample anything you like. I originally was using it on my windows computer. But once my sound and plugin library hit over 90Gb I decided I needed a laptop to put it on. I got a great deal on the macbook so got it so that I could also get logic pro. Reply 0
  • ChemicalBR0 17/01/2014

    @ATARI to justify the higher price?
    absolutely nothing except put the same components into a nice looking case with a half eaten apple on it.
    (Apple are all about fashion before function)

    the reason i use a mac for my music stuff is because i REALLY like logic pro (that's a DAW package and it's what i learned on) and maschine (groove production studio) is more stable on a mac and less likely to crash mid production.
    (it does work well on windows tho but I've had a few issues with it and no issues under OSx)

    My windows rig is my gaming machine and the sound libraries of these music packages are HUGE and I'd rather have all that stuff on it's own dedicated computer. As i said i got a good deal on the macbook or I'd never have paid the price.

  • ChemicalBR0 16/01/2014

    @ATARI as a gaming machine a mac just doesnt cut it. They are WAY too expensive for what you get. You can pay almost double the price for a mac that you would pay for a similar spec Pc. There's also no where near as many games released on mac. The vast majority with a computer at home have a Pc and devs know this. Really nice machines to use for production software and the like (I use a macbook pro for my music software but I got that using a staff discount. Id never have paid full RRP for it) but as a gaming machine..... nah Reply 0

I too was sceptical of early access but there are some real gems out there that you can play now and your experience will only get better over time as they introduce more features.

    I shall look into dosbox/freeDos because I had a look at my old box of disks today and not only do i have xwing vs tie, but xwing alliance is in there too, would quite enjoy a trip down memory lane with those 2.

    been waiting 20 odd years, since playing frontier elite 2 on the Amiga
    another few months or even years isn't worth 200 quid for early access.

    yes i understand that without the kickstarter it probably would have never been made but I'm really not that desperate that I'd throw money at it, just because the original elite games were amazing means nothing to me. nostalgia isn't enough to make me open my wallet and throw silly money at a game dev.

    to those remembering x-wing vs tie fighter I still have the original CD in my magic cupboard :) as well as some other old pc classics like crammonds grand prix 4 and the original max payne (could never bring myself to chuck the disks, there's even some old toys from when i was a kid in that cupboard)

    I doubt they would work on this PC tho (payne definitely doesn't or at least I couldn't be bothered investing the time to get it to work, I tried for an hour or 2 and gave up and bought it for 3 quid for my S3 :)

  • ChemicalBR0 05/12/2013

    @cloudskipa seriously. people need to grow up. they are negging every comment you make. good or bad.
    just because it's you.

    I disagree with a lot of the things you say I agree with other things you say. MOVE ALONG CHILDREN (that wasn't shouting by the way it was a megaphone :))

    however this game deserves the score it got here. not a bad game but the micro transactions and inevitable soon to be released DLC rightly strip a couple of points from the score. I put in a LOT of hours in FM4 I put in a lot of hours in GT5. both are fantastic games developed from a slightly different point of view of what a racing game should be.

    I will not spend money on a full price game that strips content so that it can sell you it a month down the line. (depending on how the gt6 MT's affect game play i may not purchase that either) if its just the same as gt5 with MT's tacked on for the lazy cheaters then yeah i'll buy it. (however it won't be such a hard decision as I won't need to buy a console to play it on)

    let the inevitable negs commence for having the audacity to somewhat defend skip. (I care not a jot for such trivialities)
