    What are the chances of USGamer doing a piece on what a Bell-End Jeremy Corbyn is?

    This is not the place for poorly conceived, sub sixth form political "Humour".

    Sorry Ellie but if this is what you want to do then go and work for the Guardian.

  • Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is Platinum's most disappointing game

  • Devox 26/05/2016

    A small studio stretched too thin maybe? As has been said elsewhere they are working on at least 2 other titles right now. This is a classic cash-grab title - mid-tier, mid-priceish. One to pick up in a steam sale i'm afraid Reply 0

    Given the rift needs a 970/R9 290 level GPU to work that would be quite a jump in power for these Mid-Term Machines. In fact, that would suggest that this may well be a 'Next-Gen' machine in all but name. If they keep it backwards compatible to both the One and the 360 then you have a massive back catalogue of games from day one.

    I think this years E3 could be very interesting.

  • Don't expect to be blown away by the new Gran Turismo on PS4

  • Devox 20/05/2016

    @fbutronMX I think you've posted GT3 pictures running on a PC emulator or at least i hope you have. It had better play brilliantly because it looks a full generation behind whats come out in the last couple of years graphically. I think i'll be sticking to driveclub and forza apex Reply +1
  • Gran Turismo Sport out 18th November

  • Devox 20/05/2016

    Polyphony really need a return to form. Once the standard bearer for Motor sims but in the last 3-4 years they've been passed by Forza/Pcars/Assetto/Driveclub etc etc.
    Sony just cannot rely on them to produce games in a timely manner and petrolheaded console gamers have far more options these days.

    @noobish_hat Running Joke, you must be new here.

    Why just the 2 titles? Makes no real sense not to include oranges, especially at 40. Will wait to see how much of an upgrade this is over the originals on PC.

  • Has Remedy fixed Quantum Break on PC?

  • Devox 06/05/2016

    So, why not delay the release for the 2-3 weeks of obvious extra polishing it needed? I find it baffling that none of the AAA publishers have worked out that releasing a game in a broken mess is not going to end well. Reply +2
  • Suda 51's first game, The Silver Case, is getting a western remake

  • Devox 06/05/2016

    There certainly seems to be a lot of love for the PC from Japanese developers recently. Far too many great games being forgotten to the mists of time. Kudos to MS for getting BC up and running on Xone. Hoping to see Sony and Nintendo follow suit (i have a feeling NX could be all about the back catalogue).
    I actually have this in the attic - might sell it to buy the playable english version!

  • Persona 5 gets a Japanese release date and new trailer

  • Devox 06/05/2016

    @SpaceMonkey77 There has been a huge upsurge in Japanese games on Steam recently. Most are less than stellar ports but they are coming. I'm a JRPG fan so i've got a PS4 but it is good to see the influx on steam. Tales of Zestiria is highly recommended on PC. Reply +1

  • NX won't be sold at a loss

  • Devox 02/05/2016

    @Kinkster The Dreamcast suffered from a lack of software and was marketed terribly. I still have mine as its arcade titles were fantastic. Sony understood that the average gamer wanted more than just "Arcade" style games so had a much broader spectrum of genres.
    Remember, the Wii "won" but was based on a gimmick that was the right thing at the right time. What Nintendo need is innovation to set it apart from the Big 2 and PC and i can't see that happening a second time. This leaves them with a difficult task of positioning themselves in the current market. Until they finally show us the system we can only speculate.

    @miseryguts 199.99 + 60 a year to "Nintendo Access and Online"
    or
    499 including 7" tablet controller.

    Either way it needs to launch with ZeldaNX, MarioKart 9, Metroid Prime NX, Ultra Mario World, Fire Emblem NX, Paper Mario NX, Sin and punishment 3, Pikmin NX and Skies of Arcadia NX all coming out in its first 18 months of life.

    @Kinkster Wii sports was bundled with the machine so thats a bad example. As for PS2, you forget it was first out of the blocks that Gen and was trading on the immense good will after the exceptional original Playstation. Would PS2 have been so successful if it launched a year- 18 months after the Gamecube and Xbox? Third party support was already in full swing for PS2. Xbox launched last and was always playing catch-up and missed most of the top IPs of the time. Reply 0
  • Devox 02/05/2016

    @Kinkster Underpowered as in what the average console gamer expects their games to look like. If your mates got something that looks like Witcher 3 and yours looks like Ultima 4 then the average games is going to go for the Witcher, even if your Ultima is brilliant (which 4 most certainly is).

  • Devox 02/05/2016

    Nintendo HAVE to learn from its mistakes of the last generation. They got lucky with the WII - Right product at the right time baked with a a decent amount of software. The WiiU however has been a disaster - shocking sales and pitiful software support. Now we know they will sell to the zealots (who would buy a ZX81 if it had a nintendo badge on it) and that gets you over the first 4-6 weeks of trading. But, as the WiiU has shown, if you do not appeal to the rank and file gamers (as in not those of us who are on here every day (we know who we are)) then you are on a slow train to oblivion. Missing E3 is a mistake as, like it or not, it is the focal point for the Gaming community. They HAVE to show at the Tokyo Game Show and really need to start marketing aggressively around XMAS or be lost under mountains of VR/PSNEO/XBoneand69ths Hype.

    NX will be a very cheap base machine with a mid priced "mobile" portion. It will be BC to the NES and all points inbetween (including all the handhelds). It could retail for as little as 150 but have an immediate back catalogue of 100s of games. Or they could bump the price to 250 and have a machine with XBone levels of grunt which would be more than enough to power their own graphically simplistic IPs. NX will not be a Polaris/ G1080 behemoth... although it would make things very interesting if it was.

  • Watch: Impressive levels built in Doom's new map editor

  • Devox 02/05/2016

    Still on the fence with Doom. It was the first PC game i ever played and one that is still incredibly playable after all these years (it has aged far better than both Quake and its sequel). Problem is i thought the multiplayer beta was horrible - Floaty handling and Pea-shooter weaponry. The editor, however, means there is going to be a vast amount of extra content on top of the single-player campaign(Dooms 1 to 3 are going to get recreated with it without any shadow of doubt). Looking forward to seeing how it reviews. Reply +1
  • Digital Foundry's top ten picks for PlayStation Neo upgrades

  • Is Battleborn any fun if you don't know what you're doing?

  • Devox 16/04/2016

    Played the Beta on PS4 and it feels very clunky to me. Movement is laborious, shooting feels weightless and Playing solo is not recommended as it becomes a real grindfest to get anywhere. Loved Borderlands but this is a very different beast which i personally will be passing on. Nice to actually have a decent Demo of a game for once though. Give it a try. Reply 0
  • Deus Ex meets Die Hard in Consortium: The Tower, currently doing the business on Fig

  • Devox 08/04/2016

    its not as if this is their first rodeo - The first Consortium was a short-ish RPG with god awful graphics but some very solid writing. It looks like they are trying something more ambitious with the second game. I would say this is a pretty solid bet if you want to join in the backing (also, the first game is 2.79 on Steam if you want to check it out). Reply 0

    @Rogueywon Thats some high class stupid you just said. I play far more 'indie' titles than the bland cookie cutter AAA or yearly COD/FIFA tedium. I mean who needs the dross of Braid/Minecraft/Axiom Verge/Volume/Hyper light Drifter etc etc etc.Yes there is some dross out there but it most certinly does not constitute 99% of indie games.

    I think FROM are making the right decision by ending the Souls games now.I'd love to see them go back to their Mecha games and give us something new andunique in that genre. 4 Souls games and BB are enough for me but I wouldn't be at all surprised if the next game was BB2. Reply 0
  • Quantum Break review

  • Devox 01/04/2016

    @-TheDarkSide- Reading Epi/Froggys posts I think it's more likly that he's probably about 13 and, to be fair, most of us would probably be a bit more sympathetic to him. But i vaguely remember him saying he's 31 which is very worrying. He's probably an MP as thats the perfect job for a fanboy! Reply +5

  • Devox 01/04/2016

    read the review. Sounds like normal Remedy Fare - above average mechanics and gameplay but hardly the second coming. Comments and oh god the fanbois are back pissing and moaning because this didn't get a 'recommended' badge. READ the GOD-DAMNED REVIEW people. There is nothing in the review that makes it sound like a 'Bad' game. It's another Remedy game. Personally I enjoy their games so I will pick this up on PC at some point. They make very solid 7-8/10 games and thats enough.
    Lets be honest here, the exclusives on both consoles have ranged from pretty poor (Knack/The Order/Forza 5) to pretty good (Driveclub/Forza 6/Bloodborne) but i'd argue that neither has really had that 'Killer' game. PS4 has the better looking line up for me as i'm a huge Yakuza and Persona fan but i'm really looking forward to see what Scalebound is all about.

    Could it be that Bioware are making Mass Effect 4 - Space Bastards? With the announcement of Tyranny could we finally be getting games where we are the bad guys? In the first trilogy the whole choice thing was between hero and stroppy hero. I want a choice where I am Genghis Khan - Space Invader.Make the lead character look like John Glover (Brimstone, Smallville etc) or Kevin Smith (Xena..not Clerks Kevin Smith) and I'm in. Reply +1

  • BioShock: The Collection spotted for PC, PS4 and Xbox One

  • Devox 17/03/2016

    Just finished Bioshock again recently. Easily one of the best games of the last gen.
    The big question is whether these are basic ports or properly re-mastered versions. Seeing as this is coming out on PC i have to assume that there must have been some updating done as all 3 work perfectly on Win 10. I was about to replay 2 but will wait and see what this pack holds.

  • You can now play Alan Wake on Xbox One

  • Devox 17/03/2016

    SOTN should be mandatory on all new consoles.If you have not played it then buy it now. You will not regret it. Alan Wake is a great game and if its true you also get American Nightmare as well then its a very good pre-order bundle indeed.

    If M$ announced follow-ups to Lost Odd, Blue Dragon and Vesperia as console exclusives i'd buy a bone tomorrow!
