  • Star Wars Battlefront on PS4 shows huge promise - but needs work

  • George-Roper 05/07/2015

    even given the concessions in physics-based destruction
    Oh man, I didn't even realise this had been binned too :(

    I had such high hopes for this game, imagining a BF-esque destructable environment, with 64 players milling around several AT-ATs/AT-STs, advancing on bases from different angles, forcing players to create strategies to counter.

    Instead its this bland as fuck, on-rails, low-player count simpleton of a game.

    Sigh.

    It amazes me how much bandwidth is spent in the games industry talking about 1080 / 60.
    If resolution and performance were not thing that's gamers wanted, explain why now-gen are selling so well and why gamers didn't infact just remain on PS3/360?

    If we were as enthusiastic about gameplay, original ideas and story as much as we are about how quickly a game can render a scene I think we'd all be much happier.
    Who says we aren't? The two aren't mutually exclusive. The problem isn't gamers (once again blame shifting comes out).

  • Can Halo 5 deliver on its 60fps promise?

  • George-Roper 04/07/2015

    Based on the demo, it seems that the target is a 'perceptual' 60fps experience more in line with the Call of Duty titles. That is, while the target remains 60fps, performance levels often dip below during action sequences.
    Fuuuucking hell.

    Really?

    That's a thing now, is it? 'Perceptual' 60fps?

    LOL!

  • What does it take to run Arkham Knight smoothly on PC?

    @GreyBeard

    Equal treatment is anathema to these chumps, they need SPECIAL LOVE. Because, because by the holy right of them being elite PC gamers (they tend to forget that not everyone invests so much in needless hardware upgrades and other frivolous bullshit) they are owed it.
    You really do come across like a bitter mental case. Probably someone who would prefer to game on PC but, for whatever reason, currently can't.

    Ah.

    Quick perusal of the game library shows almost entirely last-gen, console games.

    What an absolute surprise. Not.

    As I wrote before, the way PC gaming is getting so high-maintenance in terms of meeting user expectations is just going to deepen that division.
    PC gaming is not high maintenance.

    Nothing has changed, in several years, to even come close to validating your statement.

    If a company decides to release a game for a platform, any platform, then the expectancy is that the game utilizes that platform to its fullest potential.

    What if AK had been released at 720p on PS4. That's acceptable, right? Because 720p is a valid resolution, supported on all HD TVs. So what would be the problem there then?

    What if AK had been released at 20fps on PS4. That's acceptable, right? Because 20fps is a valid framerate. It's low but its still valid. So what would be the problem there then?

    Broken game is broken game is broken game. End of.

  • That Fallout 4 Xbox One plus free Fallout 3 deal needs a pre-order

  • George-Roper 02/07/2015

    @Solid_Strife

    Console gamers actually have it better than anyone. Pay 35-40 tops for a new AAA, play it, then sell it on ebay for around 30 (sometimes more) it really is that simple,
    Even if you're able to sell the game on Ebay, when if its so easy surely everyone else is doing it and driving the prices down, you also then have to stump 10% up to Ebay each month, then the postage cost and don't PayPal also take a cut of the proceedings too?

    Not quite 'as simple as' and certainly nowhere near the apparent easy money scheme you make it out to be.

    @Murton

    I know that insulting the intelligence of console gamers is one your "things" but literally no console gamer thinks that 50+ dwobload compared to a 40-45 disc is "good value" bar a small selection of people sharing their accounts to split the cost two ways
    Not really. I also insult the intelligence of PC gamers who buy new releases natively from Steam, Origin or Uplay. The only difference is, console gamers have no other choice for their digital games, so they have two choices. Suck it up or get the disc.

    The thing is, there's evidently a market for it. Sony and Microsoft wouldn't maintain a storefront that "literally no console gamer" would use.

    Fact is, console gamers do buy from PSN and XBL, at the prices stated. And enough to warrant the services continued design.

    @muro

    Shitty digital pricing strike again. It's my biggest complaint of this generation. If we are downloading it from the server and taking away transport, stocking, fulfillment, and retailer costs why is it costing more???
    I think MS or Sony went on record as saying "Digital downloads present a selection of our consumers with ultimate convenience", so basically because gamers are too fucking lazy or impatient to get the disc.

    And whilst even a small percentage of accounts use XBL or PSN, the jacked up prices make up for it.

    They've got console gamers over a barrel and sadly, as crazy as it sounds, they've been convinced that 50 for a digital version of a game is 'good value'. Good enough value to justify the service continuing anyway.

  • The Taken King is the expansion Destiny has been waiting for

  • George-Roper 01/07/2015

    @tomphillipsEG

    With the tagline I wanted to get across that there was hope for the expansion even "despite that price tag".
    The problem is, the two are directly connected.

    You can't disconnect TTK, no matter how good within the confines of its own limited DLC structure, from the price tag because that's the entry requirement for gamers.

    As an independent gaming site, as others have said, you should be hammering the pricing policy of DLC from big publishers like this. It's getting way out of control and you have the ability to contribute towards addressing it.

    It's shameful of them, really. It's like they know they have all these Destiny addicts, who'll gobble up whatever price they stick onto their feeble DLC, because "They'll throw money at the screen".

    Just an awful situation and its disheartening to see EG basically standing against common sense.

    As for which version to consider, it's pretty clear that the PC version comes out on top in terms of technical performance. Support for higher resolutions and hardware MSAA combine with excellent performance on a wide range of hardware to create a wonderfully polished experience from top to bottom
    But I thought PC versions of multiplats were 'mostly worse' than on console?

    Where you woefully attempted to 'justify' PSN/XBL prices as not being walled-garden, when they blatantly are.

    You then went on, when I disproved the point that PC is also walled garden, to point at low-cost PC game keys not supporting the developers, when console 2nd is doing much worse than that.

    That's why.

    Sorry you weren't able to obfuscate your agenda enough.

    Would you be OK if all PC gamers started buying dodgy keys for 15?
    They're not 'dodgy' they're legitimate keys. If they weren't, Steam/Origin/Uplay/GoG wouldn't allow them to be used in the first place.

    Has that part sunk in yet?

    All this in an article about a cheap, fucked up, outsourced PC port. The irony is hilarious.
    Very poor effort to deflect away from your absurd and incorrect logic.

    Facts is facts, my friend! :D

    Oh, and on the 'cheap', 'fucked up' PC version of this game, I'll be around to see you eat your words when its fixed up and once again comes top of the multiplat list in the DF Face-Off.

    I'm not saying all pc gamers are pirates. I'm saying, if you don't want to pay what the developers are asking, why not just pirate it and paying nothing? Is 15 where some sort of guilt mechanism kicks in?
    Absolutely classic, coming from the console-POV where the 2nd hand market is destroying profits.

    At least PC gamers using legit key sites is still contributing to the coffers, whereas the 2nd hand console leech market has done nothing except take money out.

    Are you taking the piss? A. Most key sellers get their keys from Russian or India, want to compare prices with Hungarian / European stores. B. They're so illegitimate they don't even offer refunds.

    You do realise that big budget games wouldn't come to your platform if everyone did this don't you? VPN scum bags are the absolute worst, you'll kill the openness of your platform & don't sponsor good developers or publishers
    Quite possibly one of the most retarded things I've ever heard in my life.

    Explain how, if we were back in the 90's, this is any different to buying a game, physically, cheaper and shipping it somewhere else?

    Literally the only difference is that its digital. Differences in game prices, on region, is ancient. Nothing new here, whatsoever, apart from the delivery mechanism.

    Erm, I think you'll find those keys are quite legit. I've been using CDKeys for a long time now and guess what?

    Not a single key revoked.

    And the keys redeem on Steam. Without issue.

    So yeah, RRP, full price, 'support the developers', flarn, flarn. Doesn't change the fact that going back to my point, PSN/XBL are walled gardens forcing games into paying only the price that Sony or Microsoft themselves set. That's the captive audience, that's the reason why consoles are the highest priorty. I mean, why wouldn't a business target a bunch of idiots who stump up 50 for the PSN version of Arkham Knight, right?

    I bought Bloodborne via PSN for about 45, and then pCars off Steam for 40. One of those is me in a walled garden being a twat, the other.. isn't? Am I getting that right?
    That's exactly right.

    Who made the decision to buy from Steam?

    Now what decision do you have on whether to buy from PSN or not, for the digital version of a game?

    What's that?

    Such a silly comment. Publishers are focusing on the consoles because that's where their selling a significant amount of units. Are people twats who shell out for new games on Steam? Fallout 4, Elder Scrolls Online & Toukiden are all 50 on the Steam front page right now. Buying games at silly prices really doesn't depend on the platform you own.
    Sillycommentlol.

    I mean, yeah, you can of course buy a game direct from Steam. For 40.

    Or you could buy it from a key seller for less than 20.

    Where's the same alternative to console gamers?

    Oh?

    There isn't one?

    Its a software issue. A badly coded game. Console gamers jumping on this as 'an example' of PS4/XBO superiority are missing that vital point. When patched, and it will be patched because now its their reputation on the line, we all know which version is going to come out on top. Where will these jokers be, when the eventual PC/PS4/XBO face-off happens?

    Makes me laugh how desperate they are to try and justify their 300 games console, as if a gaming PC couldn't ever leave a PS4 in its dust. It's like the mindset of a madman, like that Caute fella trying to hold the water back because he was told he could.

    You have to laugh really.

    The same people who declare it as some sort of victory that the pc version surpasses the console version are often the same people that like to tell how "lowly" "underpowered" and "weak sauce" the consoles are.
    But consoles are weak sauce though.

    People are so quick to forget, this isn't PC hardware unable to natively reach its potential. Its a very badly coded game, bad enough to issue refunds and pull from sale (lets count how many times thats happened), that was being artificially held back to mask its problems/maintain parity.

    The problem with these EG articles now is that they're coming across as contract fulfilment rather than being genuine. I still can't believe the article they put out the other day, about how the PC version problems shouldn't overshadow the console versions.

    Exposure, exposure, exposure. Gotta hit that minimum article count to get the revenue.

    EG should have held off any more articles until we see what happens with the PC version. Broken games, and that's what this was on PC, are a danger to us all, irrespective of platform.

    If publishers continue believing that this practice has minimal repercussion, from boxes on shelves to marketing and PR costs, then its just a matter of time before this severe degree of corner cutting becomes the norm.

    It might be smiles in console land ATM but laugh this off as affecting 'the other guy' and you'll just be next.

    PC versions of multiplats are technically superior. Would you like me to list out all the DF Face-Offs that bear this truth out?

    Does not change the fact that they recommended it for all Platforms on their homepage. It's misleading since they did not even test the PC version.
    At best, its a flaw in the new rating system and they need to remove systems that aren't actively used in the review process.

    At worst, its a way to cut corners and imply a broader range of reviewed platforms by fooling at-a-glance readers who don't take the time to read on. Especially so on the news feed, where the detail about review platforms is omitted.

    I can't stand the bad attitude to Japanese games some PC owners have. Really fucking entitled & rude. Dark Soul's was not a bad port at all, should be ashamed of yourself lumping it with non functioning games like this.
    Dark Souls on PC was, at release, so fundamentally bad that I refused on principle to play it. It didn't help that I didn't have a 360 pad at that time, of course, given the game was ported directly to require one.

    To this day, I still haven't returned to it.

    If a developer can't even get a game working properly on keyboard and mouse, y'know the platforms primary control method, then that game is just as broken as graphical and performance problems like this has.

    I'm sorry, but we're you not both crying 'downgrade!' when the Witcher 3 was released? So now you're admitting there was no downgrade on PC to cater for the lower powered consoles?

    Good I'm glad we got that finally sorted. Because one only has to look at some of the posts from the PC fanboys to hear "We've been shafted" or that the consoles are "holding back our graphics!". So you're telling me this isn't true? Are you also telling me that this is the only AAA game to be badly optimised for PC? Even though we normally don't hear the end of it from the PC lot! Because that is what I meant by that post. Not that the PC versions weren't the best (they obviously are), but that they never reach their full potential.

    If that was unclear then I apologise. However, I suspect it was and just like the PC gamers I previously mentioned who consider themselves 'elite' to all others, (ahem, like you) you felt compelled to attack this lowly 'peasant' for speaking out of place.

    I didn't buy into potential, I want good returns on my outlay. I don't care if it's held back by budget, lack of power, bad development. The end result is the same.
    Neither do I, but our ire needs to be directed at WB/Rocksteady and not just at this 'outsourced' PC developer

    It's not really the game that's the problem, I have other stuff to be playing. It's the re-affirmation that PC gamers are second-rate customers and the uncertainty of good support following fuckups like this.
    Yes but anomalies will happen. They have before and they will continue to.

    Looking outside of this specific issue, WB have a long history of being a cheap-ass publisher. Lest we forget, this is the same publisher who cancelled patches for their previous Batman games, even though there will still issues on all platforms.

    The important thing to remember is, these sorts of situations are the exception not the norm. Would I sooner get 95% of my multiplats on PC, looking and running their best, even though the other 5% are poorly released due to developer-specific bad decisions?

    Of course. Every time.

    You're honestly going to play this card in light of the PC release?? You do realise your list (throw in missing AO/shaders while you're at it) could be quite easily mistaken for the PC version; running on 6TF GPUs no less.
    The obvious difference being, the PC platform has the headroom and potential to hit the long strides on performance, whereas, even as good as it looks, the console version will always be constrained by the ceiling limits of now-gen.

    Bad developer is bad developer.

    Rocksteady's superb work doesn't deserve to be overshadowed by the poor PC version.
    Words fail me that a supposedly independent gaming site would take this stance.

    You sound more desperate than the "console gamers" LOL.
    I don't even know what that means.

    You win.

    Just LOL at all the desperate console gamers, looking for absolutely any angle whatsoever to have a go at the clearly superior gaming system.

    Let me just set something straight. Occasionally, there will be a multiplat game that a publisher, like WB, decides to go cheap on and hire external developers. And what happens is, the work is so monumentally poorly done, on the cheap, that you get a compromised PC version of the game. That happens. We've seen it elsewhere. It will continue to happen, sporadically.

    But here's the thing.

    That's not down to the hardware not being up to scratch. Because the hardware in question is many times more powerful than now-gen consoles.

    But wait a second.

    Now-gen consoles have demonstrably, time and time again, proven that not only can they not hit 1080p consistently but they also can't dream of hitting 60fps and along the way see their levels of fidelity set underneath the comparitive PC version AND suffer from tearing to boot.

    To put it another way, now-gen will never be able to escape the limitations imposed by its mobile-centric, low-spec PC framework. No amount of secret sauce, optimization or to the metal (LOL) is going to get you anywhere near the 1080p/60 dream, which BTW most PC gamers take completely for granted. A gaming PC will always have the potential to hit its stride.

    And that right there is why the occasional shite like this only ever registers on the fringe, because its never the norm, only the exception.

    So keep clinging on, console warriors. Those face-offs don't lie and I'd reckon that even this game in its current compromised state probably still looks better than now gen.

    Just sayin'. Don't cry.

    :)
