  • I'm not sure what David Cage is trying to say with Detroit

  • GamesConnoisseur 21/06/2017

    I enjoyed Heavy Rain but Beyond Two Souls not so much, it was a real drag getting to the end.

    Even tried to replay Beyond for another go in case clicked better but nope a turn off, now why is that the case? I did wonder to myself if it was because the main character was a female and possibly I didn't emphasise as well with her, but I ve played many female central games without issues.

    QTE overkill or whatever, it does seem quite common that others prefers Heavy Rain over Beyond and I m hoping Detroit going to be much more like it but dreading it's turned out another Beyond experience for me.

  • Assassin's Creed Origins on Xbox One X: can third parties hit 4K?

  • GamesConnoisseur 14/06/2017

    I think 33% or so CPU limited boost for both PS4 Pro and Xb.O.X. will be more apparent in an open world game setting and therefore would need dynamic resolution/checkerboarding.

    No question Xb.O.X. is more capable than PS4 Pro but the big extra GPU teraflops is not be all and end all answer to everything. Still I m happy with checkerboarding if done well as in few PS4 Pro titles like HZD, though I still hope that publishers would be more clearer as to WHAT enhancements are provided as some are supposedly Pro enabled but no clear indications and so would be also frustrated IF see the similar unclear situation for Xb.O.X.enhanced games.

  • Xbox One X looks stunning - but we need to see more

  • GamesConnoisseur 14/06/2017

    From the EG interview with Phil Spencer, he was stressing he doesn't want to be in a position to hype up an exclusive games when they are not ready to be revealed or proven to be of such quality i.e. Scalebound.

    So that seem to indicate there are several in a cooker, still we do not make purchase merely on a promise but bona fide tangible games. There are plenty multiplatform games to play with and my PC is in my office and due to layout I can't join it up to 4K in living room upstairs.

    My interest in the Xbox One X is simply all in one 4K and console box, BC with the original Xbox titles, X360, upscaled and updated Xbox One library as well as the Xbox One X enhanced games. ALSO for the UHD 4K playback plus 4K streaming all in one solution to complement my 4K TV.

    PS4 Pro is an excellent device but it's doesn't really do anything that my 4K TV itself can do just as well without, (other than games obviously) my telly can stream and play 4k YouTube whereas PS4 Pro cannot as its YouTube App or browser is not certified/updated for 4K.

    My telly can't do UHD Blu-Ray playback just as PS4 Pro don't, furthermore I would love PS4 Pro to have BC so can play all my hefty PS1-PS3 library but nope. I have no interest to stream the games and not a user of PSNow!

    Indeed Xbox One X is clear it is a premium device and I m fine with that and would preorder it based on the rational above and look forward to an era of 4K gaming with both consoles.

    Excellent article, I was impressed with RE7's attention to details in level designs and it's helped a lot while playing in VR too.

    Next game world that maybe merit an attention I would say is Talos 1, even though it's totally fictional as Sci-Fi setting, I felt how it's all got joined up from top to bottom is very well thought out.

    What would a writer be writing about all these recent lean years?

    Two possibilities, both aren't good, these were busy times but all the games worked on didn't get released as didn't meet the Valve's standards or the those in charge prefers to keep these guys 'on retainers' and busy with inconsequential work rather than be working for rivals.

    What other reason? I m curious!

  • Anita Sarkeesian brings Tropes vs. Women in Video Games to a close

  • GamesConnoisseur 28/04/2017

    If we really believe in freedom of speech, then anyone is entitled to their opinions and how to express them, as long as they do not break any laws such as invitation to kill, blackmail etc.

    The death threats etc from haters ONLY serves to uphold the extreme feminist narrative, without those, I don't think as much attention would have been given as they was whether Sarkeesan is correct or not.

    It's amuse me that those who very strongly reacted are actually helping her case.

    Equality is all good sure, misrepresentations while very annoying but it is everywhere and done by everyone and even we lie to ourselves to paint ourselves in a better light.

    I as a lifelong active gamer cannot conceptually understand how someone would prefer to passively sit and watch partial or whole playthrough of a game then perhaps buy it and redo it basically?!

    Obviously everyone different such as one do better with theory/ideas and another being hands on/practical etc, it's less about spoilers but more about not discovering game for yourself, earning yourself the fun of learning from your own mistakes and working out the game mechanics.

    I m the type who never ever read manuals but just pull it out, apart and plugs it's all in and presto all worked etc.

  • Someone opened Zelda: Breath of the Wild's glitchy, "impossible" to open chest

  • GamesConnoisseur 26/04/2017

    @blankcanvas

    Some of your criticisms indeed can point to a room for improvement in next Zelda game.

    However I differ radically in where it's not Zelda if it's doesn't stick to the same formula of finding gimmick, using gimmick in dungeon to advance, map, small key, boss key, boss etc

    I played almost them all and got tired of the same formula and Breath of the Wild was a brave step in a new direction. Therefore it's feel new and innovative.

    Shrines are designed around Japanese love of gaming in short bursts while commuting, portable is a selling point of Switch.

    I would likewise prefer much more variety in Shrines and more large dungeons to take account for the fact it is much larger Zelda world.

    Still I m pleased to having played it (Wii U), I m sitting on the fence about the Switch until more must have games on it.

  • What Remains of Edith Finch review

    UncleLou

    As with good movies or good TV series, you pick and choose which took most of your fancy and instead of trying to watch/play all the top rated.

    I ve been guilty in the past of trying too many games, but come a point when having too many good games is healthy as a medium with any other entertainment.

    That said... I ve played in past couple of months, Persona 5, Torment EE on iPad, Zelda Breath of the Wild (Wii U), Mass Effect Andromeda, Horizon Zero Dawn, Nier Automata and Nioh.

    I hesitated to add Mass Effect Andromeda among these titles, but it wasn't that bad but still could have been much better. These were certainly one of the busiest gaming months I had and still neglected few others I already gotten such as Halo Wars 2.

    Never underestimate the powerful pull of the nostalgia, which is all about appealing to our memories from our formative years.

  • Inside the Scorpio Engine: the processor architecture deep dive

    One of the most sensible post, unfortunately will not get across to everyone here, as seem maybe most already got their own minds made up, and they only see what agrees with their 'preferences'

    I do appreicate my PS4 Pro, however the Scorpio seemed to be a more well thought out 4K platform, identifying 12 GB DDR4 as a necessary target as in the article above etc

    Seem nothing MS would do is going to be good enough and perhaps also that there's nothing Sony does is wrong!

    How come we live in a world where you can happily accept people who are the owners of Golf, Micra etc but get very territorial when its come to gaming hobby?!

  • Project Scorpio supports FreeSync and next-gen HDMI

  • GamesConnoisseur 11/04/2017

    Sure it might not be fully appreciated for a good while, but this show a kind of forward thinking I really sincerely appreciate, compared to my PS4 Pro and PSVR set up with my 4k HDR telly. Those who got it exactly like that will know Sony engineered their PSVR/PS4 Pro and any 4K TV with HDR to be virtually obsolete.

    You have to DISCONNECT PSVR to be able to take advantage of HDR at all, if can't be arsed and happy to leave PSVR in, lose out any ability to play or watch in HDR enabled media/games via PS4 and on my set up, my PSVR also occasionally cause 1 sec screen blank out every 15 mins - 2 hours of gaming/watching.

    Hence the necessary PSVR disconnection which only pushes the PSVR to oh 'do I have to faff about just to play a game with PSVR today?', If Sony was as forward thinking, they would make sure HDR compatibility would be built in.

    Yes there's a workaround, getting HDMI HDR switcher or just extra cables and an HDMI extender plug in which I used. Still unnecessary costs and time expended.

    So credits given where it's due.

  • Zelda player builds flying contraption, glides across entire map

  • GamesConnoisseur 05/04/2017

    Weapon degradation is there simply to stop you using only same weapon for most of the game, thus never experimenting with various weapons and approaches, and also if no degradations would render loots mostly useless!

    As this game doesn't rely on levelling up of character to keep looking for higher level weapons, so durability is the only solution. Beyond first few hours, I no longer bat my eyelid about it, non issue as plenty weapons and now think it's a perfect solution.

    Rain and climbing is a sore point for me though!

  • BioWare issues statement on Mass Effect Andromeda future

  • GamesConnoisseur 30/03/2017

    Quality could be better, general polish would be appreciated but the fact remain, after slow and worrying start, past the first five hours, the game opened up for me and having a good old blast.

    I would believe there far more of consequences from your choices than in ME1 (chosen as ME:A is far more similar to ME1 than ME2 or ME3) that are clearly meant for the potential sequels. It would be interesting to see if they turned out as I imagined they might will be.

    Sure I would see better quality in Zelda Breath of Wild or upcoming Persona 5, but I also know I m not regretting my purchase. Sure it would be a good move to wait a bit for more patching and cheaper price for what you deem it would worth. Dragon Age Inquisition in Space is a bit apt but yet it's doesn't quite convey it for me, ME1 merged with DA:I is perhaps more spot on.

  • Final Fantasy 15 update that changes Chapter 13 out now

  • GamesConnoisseur 27/03/2017

    I m having far more fun with ME:A than I had with FFXV complete playthrough before and including chapter 13. So based on my two game playing experience, FFXV got a far bigger need for rewrites and patching even if it is a more stable game (but after cooking for ten years it should be!).

    I haven't been so disappointed with a game that I had looked forward to for ages as after playing FFXV to the bitter end. God awful meaningless side quests etc

    However the internet apparently says different, ME:A a total disaster of epic proportions etc so I m in a minority! ;)

  • Mass Effect 2 and the importance of character

  • GamesConnoisseur 26/03/2017

    ME:A isn't the worse Mass Effect game, the quality of the shooting, the weapons and the ability choices are better than most of ME series

    Amount of the proper RPG elements are much more than ME2 and ME3 (those two were more of an action cover shooter with a RPG lite), and at least a match of ME1 but in my opinion after playing through the whole series just before ME:A. ME:A is much better than ME1 (shoot me down but I played both within a month instead of years in between).

    Many people have rose tinted fond memories of ME1 but at the time it was unlikely anything. Also the wish list of ME1, the ones who considered it best of all ME purist RPG gamers are almost all ticked off in ME:A.

    Online is there too, one of the easily best feature of ME3.

    There's seem to be an effort to please everyone that seem to be a problem though, open world? Check etc etc and as result ... quality v quantity tilted bit far on the other side.

    Animations, story and plots are heavily discussed and certainly we expected a lot better, but what I ve played so far, does seem to be leading to oh that wasn't so bad as I thought. Choices and Consequences are back and some of them seem to be setting up for sequels if any get greenlit!

    ME2 still best for tight story and characters sure, but ME:A are still enjoyable fun after a very slow start.

  • How Zelda and Horizon fix open worlds in very different ways

  • GamesConnoisseur 22/03/2017

    Enjoyed and completed Horizon, it's a bit of a refresh feel of an open world and I m pleased GG had accomplished this quite well on their first go at this genre and hope they will build on this for any sequels.

    Breath of the Wild, I can understand why some rages about the durability, but if it wasn't there the game would be lot worse, incentive to learn to harness many weapons with different strengths and weaknesses in their use would just disappear and players sticking to only highest strength weapon. Also the chests filled with weapon instead of rupee would be frustrating waste of a trek instead of oh my finally I got a wooden one for the thunderstorms etc

    It bothered me at first but got past it, invested into weapon storage upgrade and so didn't bat eyelid again, as also now I mostly carry higher durability weapons and so less often an issue.

    Instead my bugbear was rain, rain that rooted me to middle of the very high climb, and teleporting isn't an option as would mean redo it and accept loss of stamina refill foods/potions. Then oh I realised it is purposely designed in plot rain areas, shrines espceically as you was meant to find a more accessible route by eyes and feeling out the landscape surrounding it.

    It is how everything hangs and really clicked together that make me consider Zelda a more accomplished game, the dungeons that are the whole puzzle by itself, a Great Leap Forward from very enjoyable but still tired trope of getting map, small key, use newest device, small key and then boss key in themed fire/water/time dungeons.

    Sure far fewer proper dungeons (5 in all I think and about same as Horizon!) but with hundreds of entirely optional but excellent fun in short bursts mini puzzle dungeons. I m ready to face Ganon but still feeling the pull of hang on want try this and that.

    Horizon is not inferior game, both deserve to be recognised as adding substantive refresh to an open world problem, and I m blessed by having the chance to play both. Though I lean to Breath of the Wild as GOTY.

  • Performance Analysis: Mass Effect Andromeda

  • GamesConnoisseur 18/03/2017

    @Badoink @penhalion

    Played 10 hours on PC, and only saw few instances (3-4) of where the NPC were hovering slightly above ground and these were mostly while game are loading in transitition between two areas or very rare glitch in combat situation.

    In all instances I haven't experienced in my playthrough the litany of horrible glitches that others shared on the internet. Does that mean it's PC specs dependent?! I do acknowledge that facial and body language animations aren't Witcher 3 level but its passable for the usual scale of the open world game (I m aware Witcher 3 and GTAV are a massive game!).

    I did also try Xbox One trial for few hours, I did notice the stiff animations more easily, although it could be cos I tried Xbox first then used to it by PC, but I really disliked aiming in lower FPS OF Xbox compared to much better combat aiming on PC's higher fps.

    Those who done it in 5 -10 hours or less must have checked the online guides whereas for me a big part of the fun is sussing out the game mechanics, lore, and what I m supposed to do.

    So it's A to the many other alphabet letters before getting to B and kill the final boss whereas those who follow the guide quest steps in the shortest time would complete the game but miss out maybe on 99% of the content?!

    But if they actually enjoyed it more doing that then kudos to Nintendo for allowing all type of experiences!

    Then again there are those who wouldn't kill the final boss UNTIL 100% of all other contents have been completed. That's also not me!

    I also got 4K and PS4 Pro, yet to try Resogun but I would concur that 4K does give a sharper image, but after getting used to it, I didn't really notice the 4K leap as much as I do with leap to HDR.

    Real good HDR implementation really transform the game to the next gen more than the 4K IMO.

    I know that there aren't many native 4K, but even with checkerboard 4K like Horizon Zero Dawn, Rise of Tomb Raider and so on. Initially I m wowed with the improvement to the resolutions, sharper and better fine details but after a while, taken for granted as a standard! I remember feeling the 1080p HD difference much more after old 576i.

  • Resident Evil 7 proves that PSVR can be more than just a novelty

  • GamesConnoisseur 01/02/2017

    Experiencing REVII on PSVR via PS4 Pro indeed was the title that really almost singularly got the best use and the justification for getting the PSVR for me. Other PSVR titles were too short or too nausea inducing in longer sessions.

    Never got nausea with REVII until tried smooth turning on right stick... reverted to 30' angles which worked fine. My headshots were much much more successful with VR and going UHD TV with HDR is quite sexy but not for the headshots!

    I just hope we will see more titles in future (I only know of Ace Combat 7) would make full use of VR for whole game like REVII had and indeed it is an experience worth having.

  • GamesConnoisseur 30/01/2017

    Completed just under 13 hours last night, 100% in VR and just put in 2 hours on the second playthrough but on UHD TV, RE7 on PS4 Pro does look much better on UHD, but I feel that the VR experience is the more definitive way of experiencing the Survival Horror 'trademark' of RE.

    Sure there are instances even on PS4 Pro with PSVR where visuals looks much worse like a 2D tree flat sprites at the starting area, missing shadows, lower details etc but it's still a damn looker overall and easily the best VR game for me.

    I m feeling the itch to go back to VR, but will stick to UHD TV as HDR are gorgeous and whichever way, well done to Capcom for going back to the proper root of RE but managed to still make it fun.

  • Face-Off: Resident Evil 7

  • GamesConnoisseur 27/01/2017

    Playing the first play through up to the third Baker family member (not including wife at the beginning hour chapter), in PSVR on PS4 Pro, having a blast of a time, noticed some PSVR players complained regarding the texture pop ups, most of those were running PSVR on the base PS4.

    I did notice some instances of pop ups on the PS4 Pro in VR, but delivering 60 fps as a priority is a right move as this game amazingly I haven't had any nausea.

    At least until I switched off the 30' angle turning for smooth turning, nauseaville approached so back on 30' angle for the right stick. I had put it on easy as was worried VR might make it harder, the headshots were the easiest ever in RE game due to the head tracking fine tuning the crosshair perfectly!

    For the PSVR, RE7 is I think almost a system seller, as up to then, I was starting to feel uncertain about the justification for the PSVR after played quite a few titles that were only fun for a very short time OR in short bursts before nausea set in.

    Visually looks great, I haven't yet played on 4K HDR, but leaving that to later playthroughs, but even so I still feel I would rather stick mostly to VR!

    Certainly 2016 GOTY for me but still find the generosity of the developer to be amazing with this kind of customisations offered.

    Second that!

    Idiotic Sony for making the PSVR nearly redundant when PSVR owners also got 4K UHD and not keen to splash out on HDR splitters or faffing about with the cables.

    Plus my external processor regularly cause temporary HDMI disconnect and reconnect (1-2 sec of blank screen) on my UHD TV, however I m enjoying RE7 in VR. Still in the middle of my first playthrough and was wondering where I can best rest the VR goggle during the need for occasional breaks from the game!

    This is the most squeamish I probably have ever been while reading/watching EG!

    I m sure there would be plenty of wisecracks at this below!
