    Those little white floating particles need to fuck right off. They are a massive fps hit and only served to kill my performance in Dying Light and pretty much puts me off buying into the remake. If it wasn't for the handy Dying Light Manager and the "Disable floating particles" option I doubt I would have enjoyed playing it as much as I did.

    Techland need to start work on a Call of Juarez: Gunslinger 2. That's what I really want.

  • The Doom movie missed the point - but so did most rival games

  • DacoitOne 20/05/2016

    @riceNpea Don't blame the general public blame the studio for their half arsed marketing tactics, even Urban himself has stated this was what truly killed it. It became a cult classic regardless and there's talk of it being picked up for a tv series with Urban reprising his role.

    We can but cross our fingers at this point.

    DOOM the movie is one of those guilty pleasures you kinda know you shouldn't enjoy watching and yet you do because it's just a dumb fun B movie. It's Aliens done on a tiny budget and a film that was an early showcase for Karl Urban in which he completely steals the movie away from The Rock who even as an acting start was still a household name.

    Like the movie or hate it the first person POV scene was still very much revolutionary for the time and as the cast boasted had never been attempted on film prior to this movie being made. I also heard that it was down to his role in this as GRIMM that Urban was later offered DREDD so if anything that's something to be eternally grateful for.



    @ghuk I'd personally say Event Horizon has far more in common with Dead Space than it does DOOM.

    As much as I was glad they attempted to resurrect the IP I think they chose the wrong developers to make it a reality as the videos clearly show that their technical prowess and aspirations in no way match their lofty and overblown ideas. Plus the fact the multiplayer is just a drop in coop mode and nothing like what the originals excellent multi offered makes it an utter waste of time x2. Yep I was one of those rare types who played and enjoyed the hell out of Homefront multiplayer and genuinely mourn its passing.

    That Deep Silver are even releasing this mess of a game makes me rather sad as they slowly but surely have become one of my favourite publishers with the Metro/Saints Row/Dead Island series' in recent years.

    I took the liberty of taking some in game Forza Apex screenshots as yours didn't do the game any kind of real justice.

  • Lionhead: The inside story

  • DacoitOne 12/05/2016

    All the noise people make concerning bringing RDR to the PC platform yada yada yada. Well fuck all of that. Fable II was always what was really missing from my Steam library and I still remember purposely buying a second hand Xbox 360 just to have the privilege of playing through it and boy what a privilege it was. I still consider it the best game to ever come out of the studio so whenever I look at my games list and see Fable/Fable Lost Chapters and Fable III all sat there and this big gaping void sat in between a part of me still dreams of what could have been.

    Fantastic article Wes. More of this please and less articles on a certain game that rhymes with Westiny when EG's time can be spent writing something just like this that leaves an actual imprint on us all for the rest of the day.

    Again. Great job.

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

  • DacoitOne 10/05/2016

    @bad09 @Das_Ginge

    See if there's one reason you hear all the time concerning just why people didn't wish to entertain Black List it was due to it having a different voice actor.

    While I can certainly understand this in many ways if you were to allow this alone to prevent you from buying into it you are missing out on a truly great SC gaming experience. If we had all taken such a stance with the Bond movies we would never have got Daniel Craig in Casino Royale.

    You do get used to the new voice quickly believe me as you are just sucked so hard into the gameplay you no longer even care after a mission or two tbh and honestly, it's just not that bad.

  • DacoitOne 10/05/2016

    Everyone knows that Chaos Theory outside of the first outing is pretty much the pinnacle of the Splinter Cell series. What folk don't seem to know however is that the criminally overlooked Black List was the closest thing for me personally to there being an actual Chaos Theory 2 and was a true return to form for the IP which also garnered great reviews. Yet the sales for it were fairly weak and I feel rather sad for all of first time developers Ubisoft Toronto's hard work going largely unrecognised perhaps due to the bad taste both Double Agent and Conviction left some with, not all but some.

    If you are at all a fan of Chaos Theory and Splinter Cell in general and never thought of trying out Black List due to how the series panned out prior to it I strongly urge you to give it a shot. You can pick it up from G2A for a measly 4.89 (6.21) or even the Deluxe version for a little bit more now. Go on, what have you got to lose?

    Actually fuck it I do believe I'm going to give it a replay again myself as I've not played it since my last play through back in 2013 and I'm rocking a GTX 960 4GB now over my then 1GB HD 7770...

    Somehow I'd never even heard of this before coming across this article and upon watching the abysmal performance showcased in the video the game reminded me a lot of the awesome magical abilities from Dark Messiah so I searched it out on PC. As EG so rightly stated I picked it up for less than two pounds on Kinguin which isn't bad considering it's about to become a new April 2016 released PS4 game that is selling for 49 dollars on Amazon.com right now.

    Extremely curious to see what it Achieves With CryEngine 3 running on my GTX 960.

  • LawBreakers no longer free-to-play, due this summer

  • DacoitOne 18/03/2016

    Because free to play doesn't always mean you will gain the player numbers to keep it afloat just look at Tribes: Ascend which I adored personally but then I also got to see it die a slow drawn out death. Once the developers finally decided to recommit to bringing it back to life the ship had already sailed and no amount of changes could save it.

    For as many gamers having something that you can download and play free of charge will entice to give it a go there's an equal or even greater number who will give it a wide berth because they don't agree with the business model that comes with it.

    Cliff Bleszinski's name being attached may just raise enough curiosity in some to give it a go because of what he once was in the PC gaming archives of old and his work both with UT and the UT mapping community. Boss Key Productions on the other hand have a lot of pressure on them as a development studio and they know they can't afford to fuck up their first launch title with dreams of free to play overight glory.

    "I think it took away from development," "We ended up being focused on how to get money, as opposed to how to make a good game." says it all and I have nothing but admiration for them altering their focus because of it.

    With the new found love for arena shooters growing by the day I know I for one will be putting my hand in my pocket and buying it whereas had it been free to play I doubt I would have ever even checked my bank balance and just left it all down to the old xp grind instead.

  • Assassin's Creed Syndicate bows out today with The Last Maharaja DLC

  • DacoitOne 01/03/2016

    A little over a week ago I actually stopped playing AC Syndicate and started playing AC Rogue instead thanks to its recent inclusion in the Ubisoft Humble Bundle. I have to say Rogue is hands down the better game and truly a worthy successor to the excellent AC Black Flag. Hell it's pretty much Black Flag 2 in most regards. I'm still pinching myself at just how much a bargain Rogue was as it's so far kept me busy for coming up to 60+ hours and I still have loads left to do on all three included maps.

    I'm ashamed to admit I initially dismissed AC Rogue as a hastily cobbled together PC port expansion style take on Black Flag but as it stands right now I can genuinely say it's on course to becoming my favourite AC outing since Brotherhood and ACII. It's well optimised to boot too. My only wish now is that I'd realised its true worth sooner and paid the full whack for it upon release as the developer deserve every last penny and I urge any fan of Black Flag to ignore the lack of fanfare Rogue received and pick it up.

    Now please excuse me while I set sail north east to take on the final Legendary battle...Oh! Do my Johnny Boker, Come rock and roll me over. Do My Johnny Boker, do!

  • Far Cry Primal review

  • DacoitOne 22/02/2016

    As much as people love to bemoan FarCry 2 it did at least take the series into a relatively unexplored and new direction hence why it remains my favourite of them all to this very day. Now that Clint Hocking is back with Ubisoft they should pass over the reigns to him once again and let him work his magic back into the series which is now clearly lacking.

    Blood Dragon at least made sense because for all the changes made it still involved shooting guns whereas taking guns out of anything Far Cry is like having a delivery milk float with no milk.

    Ubisoft need to do exactly what they are now doing with Assassins Creed and just rediscover just what it is that made the series so successful to begin with along with giving it the development time it so deserves. Only then will we get back what we have lost with the onlsaught of yearly rushed out broken and uninspired games.

    As for Primal I've had little to no interest in it since it was first announced. Why? It's about as Far Cry related as the hole in my sock which I turn around so nobody can see it. Take it back to basics Ubisoft not back to prehistoric man.

  • Just Cause 3's next DLC pack adds a fully-armed wingsuit

  • DacoitOne 18/02/2016

    My most anticipated game of last year ended up as my biggest technical nightmare outside of that other pc release and even now months later I can't play it in anything like a reasonable state. Add to this my second wave of disappointment after I upgraded both my PSU and GPU to 600W and a GTX 960 4GB and still suffered the same exact issues with the game. Patches made little to no difference.

    I'm now literally beyond the point of caring either about the base game or any subsequent DLC they release and am enjoying a fully functioning great running Rise of the Tomb Raider and Assassins Creed: Rogue combo on my new hardware instead.

  • Tribes: Ascend patch breathes new life into dormant shooter

  • DacoitOne 28/01/2016

    @Sharz The game was never vastly popular by any means but as with Vengeance before it there has been a pretty hardcore minority who have stuck with it through everything and kept the flame alive. Even when HR left them out in the cold they never stopped trying to gain more interest in the game.

    We all owe to them in many ways to go back and give the game a second shot at life. I'm a rank 31 Brute myself and have started loving the game all over again recently. Hopefully others will do the same.

    @SwissTony1994 That's the hardest pill to sawllow though isn't it. Everyone cries for something new, something that does require skill to play and when its handed to them it's widely ignored. The recent changes made to the class system et al were clearly made to help push the game to the masses even harder and while it's still early days there does seem to be a lot more folk playing. That's something at least. Reply +2
  • DacoitOne 28/01/2016

    I was playing this again only yesterday after not entertaining it for quite some time and you know what it's still as good as it ever was when there's a full match roster. TA is just so unlike anything else you play which involves shooting that it always just feels refreshing to play if you've been playing any other fps for far too long.

    When I play the likes of CoD and I get a kill I don't always feel the satisfaction that should come with it as I don't always feel like any form of skill is a requirement, more blind luck. If I get a kill in TA however I know I've earned that single kill as on top of the shooty shooty there's an entirely different element to the way you move. I remember getting a kill on this guy yesterday who had been owning me time and time again and we ended up going one on one as he fired mortars at me and I found myself skiing around him via a small basin like part of the map with him situated in the center as each of his shots got closer but due to my constant movement he just could not pin a shot on me. Each of my own less powerful shots however connected as I maintained my momentum and eventually I won out even though I was clearly outgunned and outclassed by a far superior higher ranked player and I shut down his fairly insane killing streak with it. He even complimented me on my kill with a quick [VGCN] Nice move! It was the only time I killed him mind but in any case I DID feel the satisfaction I tend not to feel in other fps based games.

    For me that moment summed up the true beauty of the game and playing Tribes in general and I for one hope the game never dies but gets stronger as it deserves to be a success more than any other PC based shooter currently around.

    Oh and I got I think five or six blue plate specials during that game and anyone who has played TA knows exactly how satsifying they are to get. Ding!

  • Homefront: The Revolution out in May, new gameplay trailer

  • DacoitOne 12/01/2016

    Although I am glad the IP is still going the game looks questionable standards wise to say the least. If it ships with no multiplayer mode then count me out as that was the one true highlight of the first Homefront and there's even a very dedicated if very small gaming community still playing it now.

    To this day it's still one of my all time favourite multiplayer gaming experiences as flying around spotting the enemy for my team via a drone while trying not to get shot out of the sky was always a blast.

    I was fully expecting Just Cause 3 to be my GOTY but as the game released as a broken mess Mad Max which I've sunk over 100 hours into gets that accolade instead.

    Remember how Jim Sterling gave this game 4/10 and described it as a boring Shadows of Mordor clone? Right. Fuck off Jim. He was so wrong on this one I don't know where to even begin.

  • DacoitOne 01/12/2015

    Good performance seems utterly hit and miss as there's plenty of people out there with more than capable machines struggling to get 30fps and with glitches to boot.

    I myself have now managed to get 30fps (just about) but now I'm met with another challenge as once I'm in game both my select and start buttons simply don't work, I'm yet to even see the map. On top of this I did reach my first checkpoint but then when I went to the nearest mission start the Y button prompt doesn't show up at all so I'm stuck where I am and unable to even press quit to windows. The graphic for the chaos meter is also completely broken.

    No way was this game ready for release.

    Issues I've had so far include:

    The start menu not appearing after the stupidly lengthy log in/loading combo.
    Frame rates dipping to as low as 11fps randomly but especially whenever there's any form of collision.
    Getting killed and being left staring at a screen full of blood as the game fails to reload itself.
    Being forced to lower everything to low/off and 720p and the game still runs like crap. I can run Mad Max on high at 60fps.
    Random bugs happening making the game feel like it's still in alpha.

    At first I thought it was the crimson driver I was using so I removed that and installed the newer version, no change.
    Went back to the previous none crimson driver and the game was even worse than before with my fps tanking constantly aka Arkham Knight territory.

    I am utterly gutted at the poor state this game has released in especially after how great Mad Max was at release. I thought it would be so very different but as it stands right now it's completely unplayable.

    One of the cores on my quad core machine died a death and had to be disabled the day before this was being released and I was pretty gutted at the time however the game still manages an almost consistent 60fps on just three cores with Windows 10 and only 2GB of vram at high settings and 1600x900p. Sure it's not the 1920x1080p I was planning to play at but who the hell cares when it runs and looks so good.

    Had the game not been so expertly optimised I just know this wouldn't have been the case and I'd be left glaring at another Arkham Shite questioning where the hell did all the good PC ports go. Thanks Avalanche.

    The one thing that is getting on my tits at the moment is how many people are biting on my ear to play MGSV and give this the cold shoulder, just fuck the fuck off. This game deserves every ounce of appreciation it is currently getting and is delivering on all fronts. MGSV may be the present darling but that's no reason to utterly ignore Mad Max but you know it is your loss if you do.
