    Wow, a good sensible review - this is a COOP shooter that is VERY good. to play with friends online.

    If you are not doing that then its not so good.

    Also the fights are EPIC if played on a hard enough difficulty.

    Bungie games to me have always been good coop shooters, in my opinion their story telling is always laughably pretentious rubbish....anyone who marks them down for this don't get it.

    This is the best coop mate shooter for a good while.

  • Nintendo's Amiibo figurines cost 10.99 each in the UK

  • Geordiemp 04/09/2014

    They could of just used a cloud save.

    But there is more money in putting the save on a toy and charging for it.

    Good business sense if customers are willing to buy them.

    For the gamer what it means is that you need a toy to save 'SOME' game / stat progress for certain characters

  • Geordiemp 12/07/2014

    lets hope for both Ps4 and Xb1 versions they manage to maintain a steady 30 FPS as a first goal, and once achieved add effects cautiously to make sure frame rate is not compromised. Reply +10

    @E1

    I am not worthy even to read such a great response.

    pseudo-intellectual bollocks gets right up my nose, I game just to have simple pleasures and escapism.

    Once gaming starts getting politically correct and up its own arse, I really don't want to know.

    @MrTomFTW

    Most sensible comment of the day and a bit unfair on Insomniac given the release date.

    What will we get next, a framerate analysis of Bloodborne.

    If we are not careful, games will be trailers only and only showed when they are optimised and we will all loose out.

    Surely DF has got some stuff to analyse that has just been released or is releasing in next few weeks ?

  • Witcher 3 E3 gameplay demo combat was deliberately easy, CD Projekt says

  • Geordiemp 18/06/2014

    @Negotiator

    Eh ? I watched the E3 Witcher demo at the Microsoft conference using the gametrailers app on 360.

    I did not know what it was running on, I knew I was watching a stream but it did not look that clean or smooth as I was expectingeven when taking the streaming into account.

    Even when a game is streaming on gametrailers (best stream quality I could get in UK after trying several) it was obvious when game was on a high end PC like the UBI stuff, and Witcher was a long way off that quality even for a stream...


    Got no idea what you are on about with youtube and phone ? Explain ?

  • Geordiemp 18/06/2014

    Nice interview, and also was a tad underwhelmed by the E3 demo from both an Image quality and gameplay perspective.

    Glad to know it was on Ultra easy mode and 900p, so release will be better.

    Hopefully they can lock 30 fps on both consoles...and add some decent SMAA which seems to be the best go to for consoles.

    Excluding next gen consoles will come to haunt them.

    Look at the sales in UK or NPD where watchdogs sold best on next gen accounting for 70 % of all sales..

    Strange decision, they will feel it in sales..

    Sounds like a buggy un-optimised mess at the moment on every medium.

    Some times articles like this almost say buyer beware.

    It would be nice if DF revisited games with patches to see if issues were cleared...but that's not a DF issue, Devs and pubs should wait a month and release a finished better game - it would probably sell better to !

    Bungie need a steady consistent 30 FPS consistent frame pacing.

    They also need to get rid of FXAA and implement SMAA like everyone else.

  • Diablo 3 runs at 1080p on PS4, 900p on Xbox One

  • Geordiemp 12/06/2014

    I always thought this sort of game was less demanding than a first or third person action game at 60 fps.

    Surprised they are not both 1080p60 really.

    I Know I had seen this game before - its de Blob but multiplayer.


    Nearly every game now is an iteration or angle on whats gone before. With so many games and systems its impossible not to be.

    Does not mean game will be good though.

    Most technically interesting information for me is that Frostbite Battlefield running at 1080p60....that's was a big surprise...

    Naughty dog having good image quality is kinda expected....they are so good. Would of been surprised if it wasn't top notch..

    I love misterx site, its such a laugh.

    Every couple days an insider tells of secret hidden powers of XB1, hidden GPU's and stereo drivers.

    Then the best bit is the comments section, where they hit hard on sony ponies and SDF.

    Then they cry when a DF article shows XB1 weaker and claim sites are being bribed. In the next paragraph they gloat over how broke sony is. The Irony LOL.

    Its so mindlessly funny.

  • Why Xbox One's ambitious media strategy failed

  • Geordiemp 17/05/2014

    @funkyman

    Do you actually read what you link to :

    People are so gullible too. Sony planned to do use the same DRM as Microsoft. They filed a patent for it: -

    http://www.ibtimes.com/sony-files-patent-curb-access-used-video-games-1005876

    Its not always on line DRM, its a code on the disk that would allow so many 'activations' on a console.

    So maybe they could limit a second hand resale to 4 or 5 uses like the article suggests.

    To me that is not the same, and they did not do it.

    Its not a bad idea in fairness to game makers and resellers - it would be a medium ground.

  • Geordiemp 17/05/2014

    @funkyman Who knows, the conspiracy theories have been claimed and counter claimed against so many times.

    What you seem to miss is a games machine should play games well, and in 2014 that means GDDR5 VRAM (for graphics or all) and at least a decent GPU that can handle 1080p.

    Ps4 just about got there, (don't get me wrong, its still underpowered)this is the minimum we need for many multiplats that are pushing performance.

    XB1 to me is not a games machine in 2014, it is weak and struggles with image quality, framerates and tearing.

    Yes, we put up with this last gen, the main reason I upgraded immediately is I was sick of loosing enjoyment of games like GTA5 which ran like shit.

    This XB1 is not acceptable for xbox in 2014 and for the next 5 years.

    You could argue its about the games, not how they run, if that's the case I have a Microsoft console for that, its called a 360.

  • The end of gimmicks?

  • Geordiemp 17/05/2014

    I have an alternate theory.

    PS4 sells like hotcakes because its a good games machine in 2014.

    XB1 sells less because MS gimped the memory and GPU, its an average games machine in 2014. It has little to do with Kinect and more to do with being a weaker Ps4 and more expensive.

    I bet if MS had designed a 7950 GPU with good memory Xbox bundled with Kinect at a similar price it would have beaten Ps4.

    Add some Kinect games and people are happy. I liked fruit ninja - gotta admit allot of the other games were rubbish...

    I would have bought 2 strong xboxes.

    Ps4 just about cuts it, no more. Xb1 is just so much weaker than it should of been.

    The whole point of a console is manufacturer subsidises hardware and gets payback on software royalties for next 5 years. This did not happen this new gen...

  • Watch Dogs runs at 1080p 60fps on PlayStation 4, Sony says

    @NathanDaviesUK

    Sometimes when I read a quote I think

    1. sensible point. Interesting.

    2. Salty - looks a bit butthurt somehow

    3. Is a Nob.

    I cant quite work out which category you fall in.

    This is for the players, a simple 1 line of sony marketing which tries to amplify the Ps4 CONSOLE benefits particularly for multiplayer games.

    How would you market it. What clever words would you use ?

    Think about its main competitor, one, the all in one entertainment system.

    Is that more clever....does it work ?

    Don't know why I am typing this, you probably just in the no 3 category...

  • Local multiplayer is gaming's holy grail

  • Geordiemp 10/05/2014

    We have Ps4 in same room...

    But trying to get good 2 person online coop games is hard work.

    I would kill for a demon soul / dark soul / project beast / skyrim / dragon age

    Anything with online coop as we hate screen sharing.

    Is there only borderlands as a series ? (and COD zombies) to meet that need ?

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts the best-selling PS4 and Xbox One game

  • Geordiemp 07/05/2014

    Why all the 'depressing' and 'faith in humanity' quotes...I know its cool to like certain games, I like variation too.

    But COD is a good game for a twitch multiplayer shooter - in a game of 10 minutes getting say 20 kills means your in a gun fight with another person on average every 30 seconds.

    The graphics are OK (Ps4 is at least 1080p), its smooth and response is good - most games have good imperceptible lag - the net code updates almost every other frame unlike something like BF4 which is very slow netcode and 100-200 ms lag (its not just about servers.

    The diversity in guns / loadout / maps is good as is extinction / zombies, never play the single player but value is fine.

    Bought Titanfall for 360, played it for a few days and went back to COD, not enough player vs player action, got bored. Needs less grunts, more PVP.

    I used to dislike it and got killed easily when I started, I was a nay sayer, then I set myself a challenge to be good at it. Yes its frustrating, snipers - campers etc.....Now my KD > 2 and I am 'average good', and I enjoy it, campers and snipers are easy pray.

    @darkphoenix

    It has been quite hard over the years to pick the early generation winner I agree.

    I remember my 3DO and road rash....

    Picked Ps2 correctly chose wisely

    Then went for Ps3, spent a year getting head beaten in every Digital foundry face off.

    Then bought 360 and used that for multiplats...great console.

    This time with so much technical information and understanding prior to launch, it was so easy to pick Ps4 as a clear winner even in summer 2013. It was obvious.

    Cant believe the design choices for the xbox one, could of picked a cheap CPU, some RAM and a 7850 myself with lower clock for cooling that would of beaten both next gen consoles....strange choices....

    Going back to Playstation is strange, I feel like an xbox player for last 6 years who has found Sony again...weird..

    Put the odd 720p GIF in / joke about eyesight - who cares...

    Its just a bit of mindless forum fun.

    If you come into a forum you have to expect this and some banter. Getting annoyed and fighting is a down spiral road...

    Get both consoles and sit on the high fence, get a super PC and be Mr elite, or just deal with it.

  • Grid Autosport is the Codemasters racing game you've been waiting for

  • Geordiemp 23/04/2014

    Nope - I am a console only player and I am not waiting for a 360 / Ps3 sub HD crap looking poor frame rate racer thanks.

    There's a PC version and lead platform, so no excuse for no Ps4.

    NO we are not double dipping codemasters, you are not Rockstar

    If you think that 160 million last gen install base is heavily buying lots of games in 2014 and not either saving for next gen / lost interest, especially racers, think you are in for a disappointment

    We are not falling for the delay >> double dip trick again

    Tired of companies releasing PC / last gen, not mentioning next gen, then in 3-6 months we get a next gen console release with added DLC and asked to double dip.

    So, they will be quiet on Next gen, like pre-sequel borderlands, or GTA 5, Or TLOU, or Diablo 3....

    Sorry, not double dipping, you want the sale bring it to next gen, they are both X86 PC's in a console box, no excuse to bring out a PC version only...
