    @Drunk-Si

    Digital Foundry overwhelmingly proves otherwise. Even in dire cases like The Evil Within, the PC version came out on top.

    The only times when the PC version of a multiplat is 'worse' is when its control/design related and those are generally fixed via patches anyway.

    Hehe, I think you're missing the point.

    As and when games release on the PC, they're better. Not sometimes, not most of the time, but all of the time.

    And in those very select, small, tiny, meagre cases where a console gets a proper exclusive. Well, I just buy it.

    So I get to experience every game, at every level, on every platform, in the very best way possible.

    And thats the difference between you and I. And its why you're in these comments, raining those salty tears everywhere you post because you just can't deal with it.

    Well, #dealwithit

    Proper gaming? Really? Investing money in a dying desktop (yes desktops are dying) with an OS made for Office applications? Well..think i again. Hell you can't even turn your office brick on with a gamepad! You know why? Because it's not made for gaming!!! My X-mas bonus alone could buy me a office brick that would blow yours out of the water... easy. But guess what? When i take a shit i don't rub my ass with paper money.You get my point...boy? I don't like to invest money in something that is as worthless as PC gaming. I like to spent my money on good things...like console gaming, having a beer, my apartment or traveling.
    Thanks for the brief history of 88t. Most refreshing.

    I mean, yeah, complete bullshit from the brain of a teenager but yeah, refreshing.

    ;)

    Now, like I said, when you get a proper job you can buy a proper gaming machine. Until then, just dry your eyes mate, OK?

    Dry your eyes mate! Maybe one day you'll get a real job and be able to afford proper gaming?

    @Darkwaknight

    yeah so jealous of the "Pay before you try" process adopted for PC games, as the market cannot risk spending any money upfront with big AAA games say like Halo 5, Uncharted, The Order 1886, Bloodborne, Quantum Break, Gears Of War, God of War and these are but a handful out or to be shown next year
    Haha, who cares where money comes from? What it proves is that there is a market out there for those games, because those gamers are funding it. That's a fact and I know how much you like facts.

    See, they're not all bought into a closed platform console, they're not all bought into the narrow channel of specific game genres. Look at the games you've mentioned, they're all action/cover/shooters. And not only that, they're all unoriginal action shooters, regurgitated with marginally more fidelity than last gen for suckers just like you to lap up at 50 a pop.

    And what's even funnier than that is that the list of games you're quoting is growing smaller, and smaller, and smaller. Not too long ago you could have put Phantom on that. Not any more though. We both know what platform is going to have the best version of that, right?

    ;)

    And LOL! You're still going on about Order 1866, it's been proven to be dogshit, hahahahaha!! Borders? Arty! LOL!

    Against a Space Spim that is tiny compared to No Mans Sky created by 10 people with a huge scope and worlds to explore in a huge multi-use universe!!
    To compare NMS to Elite Dangerous just shows how clueless you are. They're totally different games. LOL!

    As if NMS comes anywhere close to Elite. Too funny ;)

    Erm, I think me and many others will get through this and still try Before we buy that does not remove all customer rights. And not be already looking at each showing of the game getting procedurally worse each time..please keep telling yourself any of that is a "bonus" to the platform
    Haaaaahahahahah! This, coming from a console fanatic on a platform where we've seen nothing BUT lies and misdirection from devs and pubs, with downgrades flapping around so much the last year, I've lost count of how many so called 'AAA' console games are zero like their reveals.

    There's no argument here. Now-gen relies on false advertisemnt to rally up interest. I guess that's what you get when you scrimp on the hardware though, right?

    ;)

    You can see that Valve grip has affected you alot ;-)
    Don't even know what that really means. I guess its a half-hearted snipe at the biggest game/store platform in the world?

    Only on PC, mind.

    ;)

    Don't get too salty now, not with 100 million users on Steam. It makes other platforms look pretty small potatoes, I'm sure you'll agree.

    Do you think The Order will get a PC release, eventually?

    I was thinking of buying that on the PS4 but then I read that it was a dull, boring, derivative, letterboxed cover-shooter and now I'm just torn.

    Speaking of Citizens, how are the Star Citizen and Elite Dangerous console versions coming along? Oh, they're not? The biggest, most successful crowd-funded games on the planet, the latter released fully only a week or so ago, and they don't have a console release date yet? For shame!

    Can't wait for Phantom. The DF face-off on that is going to be a trainwreck of salt spillage.

    Cheaper, maybe - but I as i said I sold my copy after finishing it a few times and got practically all my money back.
    Yeah, I guess I just prefer to play the objectively proven definitive version of the/a game over an objectively proven inferior version of the/a game.

    It's kinda like waiting for a new movie to release on Blu Ray but instead choosing to watch a cam job. Y'know? The quality just isn't there. It doesn't look as good, the effects are all shonky, all that stuff.

    Quality is always worth waiting for, no matter how long.

    Hope that explains my stance on this.

    Sublime is a great word to describe it.

    Just like DF states and goes on to state why.

    The definitive version of the game.

    Much like Tomb Raider: Definitive. Remember that? How the very same clowns were shouting up about it being the best version, a year after it had released on previous gen?

    Pretty similar situation actually. No hang on, its exactly the same situation. Odd that that version of the game gets lauded and dragged out and pointed at, yet this version of this game doesn't get the same treatment, from certain people of course.

    Man, this game on PC is SO much better than on consoles, it's really night and day.

    Can't wait for Phantom and hey, maybe it will be a simultaneous release? Imagine the fallout from that? PC version blitzes every other version, and its cheaper to boot, at release.

    I expect we'll see rivers of salt hereabouts. Then we'll hear about how a certain cover shooter exclusive will be, quite literally, the best game on any platform, ever, even though its been slagged off to high heaven so far, for being a dull, derivative, letterboxed (LOL, creative reasons) cover shooter.

    Amazing. Can't wait for DF on Phantom and that.

    So yes, saying that the PC version is significantly better, and worth an 8 month wait for Zero difference in gameplay, is pretty shallow. In my opinion.
    And its cheaper too, don't forget. So yeah, good job your opinion is worth fuck all, really.

    So I had a good couple of hours on this last night.

    My goodness, it looks absolutely amazing. I can only thank the heavens I didn't cave in and buy an inferior version, as the immersion added by the extra fidelity, higher resolution and still consistent 60fps makes this version by far the very best available. Imagine if you'd paid the RRP for this on consoles at launch, and you now see this version for less than half that price? Gutted, I think.

    Phantom is going to look supreme on the PC. There can be no doubt now, there's no reason to buy an inferior, more expensive version of the game.

    My goodness, I can't wait for the face-off on that one. Lets see, it will be..

    "Graphics don't matter!", whilst those very same people point and laugh (misguidedly) at the Wii-U or..

    "I don't want to spend 2000 on a PC to play this", when this very article proves, factually, that much lower specification PCs can still run this engine magnificently.

    Of course, we'll see rivers of salt too. In fact, I'd wager, standing right here, it will look something like this...

    I didn't goad anyone, I didn't troll anyone. It's not my fault that my preferred platform has the best and cheapest version of this game available anywhere.

    Just like it will with GTA5 in a few weeks.

    Meaningless, because why do you care who's negging you especially since you don't know who's doing it?

    And because of a few negs we also got this in your "first" comment --

    "--Oh, they'll be from the salty console gamers who were bickering amongst themselves about which version 'looks better', which is apparently fine, but when a version comes out that blitzes both of them its 'PC Elitism'. Roll on Phantom, we all know the definitive platform to buy that for now--"
    I 'care' because my comment was borne from being genuinely happy to see an extremely well done version of the game, on the PC. Its a PC article after all.

    And look at how quickly the usual subjects descended into these comments afterwards, so obviously hovering around any PC articles, waiting. It must really sting to see such positive results for the PC.

    My original comment was "Nice". My subsequent edit, which is clearly shown in there, added the rest a while later.

    I guess I just like playing games and when they are new
    This intrigued me.

    Why?

    More and more now we're seeing less and less reasons to buy games at release. ACU and DAI are just two off the top of my head that will be better games, several months in, due to fixes and patches and even, oddly, less players.

    GTA5 on last-gen had horrific online problems that lasted months.

    MCC still has multiplayer that doesn't work fully, now several weeks post release.

    So for that tiny, meagre amount of console timed exclusives, does it really matter? Is that a platform defining 'feature' for you? Because if so, that's pretty sad, isn't it? That you're a proud console gamer first because you can play a tiny amount of what have historically always been console exclusives, 6 months sooner?

    If a significant amount of games came to PC several months later, I could actually see your point. But they don't.

  • George-Roper 20/12/2014

    @DjFlex52

    And can I assume your PC cost the same price as a PS4 or Xbox One? If not, then, STFU because you paid more than twice for the hardware compared to consoles to wait 9 months later for better graphics and a half priced game. I don't see what the gloating is for? Unless you got your PC for free.
    I don't give a fuck about 'equal costs' because my gaming PC cost vastly more than all the consoles I own put together.

    That's why I'll be playing the best version of this and Phantom.

    Does anything else really matter? Does it bother you that I'm able to play this game better than you can? Why are you even in this article, which demonstrably shows the game does play and scale better on PCs than it does on consoles.

    All the console gamers posting here are just very bitter and angry, clearly. If it doesn't bother you, if you're happy to get some games sooner, if you're happy to play at 30fps, then why even stick your head into PC-based articles?

    Dunno, I guess it comes down to whether I want to pay a premium to play a technically and content-poorer version of a game, more quickly?

    GTA5 on PC will be the very best way to play that game, of that there's absolutely no doubt. I guess it's really down to whether or not a gamer wants to compromise to play games sooner.

    I guess EG are right when they say...

    Rather than rest on its laurels with fixed, console-grade graphics, it caters to most needs with a string of worthwhile visual upgrades. The boldest of these is its broadened object LODs and added lights - each pushing past what's possible on PS4
    And all for a tenner. Amazing stuff.

    it's not more than 50% cheaper as I bought it on ps4 in march for 18 and pc is 12 9 months later.
    Game is available under a tenner on PC right now but lets not quibble over a few pence, it's significantly cheaper on PC right now that it was on console, at launch.

    Also performance is identical both consoles run a locked 60 so not sure where you pulled that from?
    Yeah, at their lower fidelity settings, especially XBO at 720p. On PC, those settings are higher (much higher) and it still retains 60fps only dropping to 55fps when its 4k'ing, which is frankly fucking amazing as I'm sure you will agree.

    funny that, how the 'peasants' can afford to play the game all those months earlier and at a higher price than the so called masterrace.
    But you of course realise that console gamers are just being milked in this respect, right?

    Paying more than double the price of the PC version, at launch, for what is basically a demo that also runs at lower levels of performance and fidelity?

    I mean, yeah, its great console gamers could play their version earlier than PC gamers but that wasn't entirely without drawbacks now, was it? We'll be in a similar situation again next month with GTA5, which is shaping up to be the definitve version of that game too. Shock, horror, good devs putting prereq effort in and getting amazing results out! Who knew?!

    If I'd bought this on consoles, and I was close at one point, I'd be pretty fucked off that a better version of it now exists, for less than 50% of the cost of the console version. Maybe that vitriol needs to be aimed towards publishers, not other gamers?

  • Halo 3: ODST campaign coming to Halo: The Master Chief Collection as DLC

  • George-Roper 22/12/2014

    @crazyhorse174

    Can someone confirm, this is only for people who played it online? I'm sure I read elsewhere that the free stuff was only for people who'd played the online part of MCC (it attempted to pay it at least).

    I only ask, as it's being worded as though everyone who owns the game will get this as DLC. I bought MCC before launch as a pre-order, but I've only played through the campaigns, so I don't think I'll be eligible.
    I would expect and hope that it's anyone who installed/patched in that period, as I too have only ever played the campaigns because of all the negativity with multiplayer. I just didn't want to foul the experience until it was up and properly working.

    Fingers crossed, eh?
    Reply +4
  • George-Roper 22/12/2014

    That's actually a decent apology, a whole free game.

    Then again, I could have bought MCC for a tenner less, within a few weeks of release anyway, so it's basically going to be the same as if I'd just bought the DLC anyway.

    At some point, releasing games unfit for sale is going to boil over and there's going to be a massive upheaval. It's a shame that publishers are basically allowing it to happen.

  • Don't call it DRM: what's Denuvo Anti-Tamper?

  • George-Roper 19/12/2014

    @Nomeya

    Now, regarding Lords of the Fallen (a notorious glitchy game with horrendous optimization), do you have an analysis that proves that the copy-write operations were caused by Denuvo and not the game engine itself? Seeing how the game is notorious for it's bad optimization and all...
    Why would 'the game' read and rewrite the EXE, many times whilst the game is active?

    What game ever does that? Ever?

    Edit: To put this in more simple terms how else would this application, something specifically built to protect the EXE and prevent tampering, know that the EXE had been tampered with unless it periodically checked? I mean, if that's literally all it is, how is it any different to any other application that checks the EXE at startup?

  • George-Roper 19/12/2014

    @smelly

    lmao.. Why would game code be stored on disc and decoded then written back? That makes no sense, all the game code will be in memory at once.

    It's the game data which is read off disc.
    The fuck are you talking about?

    The EXE code on the HDD is loaded up into RAM, altered and then rewritten to the HDD.

    Clearly this is done so that the EXE can't simply be replaced and used forever more. Its picked up, checked, altered and rewritten, many times, to ensure it isn't tampered with, at any point in usage.

    But there's no need to go further with explaining this as you're obviosuly a bit clueless.
    Someone is going to have a case of the embarrassments now.

    and if you bothered to read the article then you'd see that those claims were unsubstantiated and even Eurogamer found no evidence of this being the case.
    And?

    So no proof that it doesn't then?

    And see that's the problem right there, because it can't be deactivated, it can't be verified whether it does or not. All we know is, it's there.

    And, oh look at how it works on LOF...

    Want to know how many times the average of the code LoF.exe being transferred from HDD to memory and back in one hour? 150000 operations of copy-write. This is 10,000 times greater than normal. DRM continuously decodes the game code into memory and encrypts it's back.This is one of the most r*****ed use of encryption techniques, which I have ever seen. Despite the fact that the small pieces of code (maximum 2 kilobytes per entry), are stored in one memory block. Playing the game for 4-8 hours (depending on the quality SSD) means that memory block will be gone forever.
    ...so we'd all basically assume it works exactly the same way on DAI too. Constantly reading/writing. Yeah, that doesn't sound at all like it would affect performance, or even as the quote suggests directly blitz SSDs...

    What's a more interesting story is that there's suspicion that this shite is what's causing a plethora of technical problems on the PC version.

    Whatever, its only ever legitimate buyers of software that end up being negatively affected by this sort of thing. The pirates who wait it out end up with a version of the game that isn't affected, in any way. Who are the mugs, really?

    DAI = biggest, buggiest waste of 20 this year. Never preorder a game again. Waiting it out, buying it cheaper, buying it in a more complete and fixed state is the sane way forward.

    Memories of strutting into WHSmith to check out their selection of Spectrum games, followed by a perusal of Crash and C&VG magazines (and buying one or two) before heading up to the actual video game shop.

    Amazing times. Thanks for all the anticipation and maps and help with games C&VG. Gone now but never, ever forgotten.

    Well, look at how people have jumped on IronSoldier for stating facts about how broken DA:I was at release and remains today.

    Party Banter? Broken
    Game Performance? Broken and admitted (Many performance issues being flagged, especially post Patch 2/Hotfix)
    Numerous quest/NPC triggers? Broken
    Armour rendering/animations? Broken (Some comical to the same level as AC:U)
    PC Keyboard and Mouse controls? Broken (The game clearly designed for controllers)
    Ability to walk on PC? Broken (Note the level of oversight here, as the game via controllers with analog sticks allows walking but theres no K+M hold/toggle to do the same)
    AI Tactics/barrier abilities? Broken (AI regularly acts bizarrely, with ranged running into melee, barrier abilities not being used, etc)
    Tactical Cam? Broken/Unfit for purpose
    Saves? Buggy with risk of total loss
    Stability on PC? Broken (CTDs abound).

    Now lets look at the fixes in Patch 2....

    Game rendering on PC? Broken
    Character model visuals on lower spec PCs? Broken ('THE' fix for this, BTW, is to run the game at higher settings than your PC can manage. That's now the only thing stated by Bioware that players can do, or be stuck with the way their characters now look)
    Example of pre and post patch? OK....

    Character voice changes? Broken (Bioware fixed the issue that causes it but players stuck with the change aren't retroactively fixed. New game required).
    Pressing button to find herbs/ore now shows on minimap! FIXED (LOL)

    Now lets look at the fixes in Patch 2 Hotfix (which, BTW, there's no change control going on ATM).

    Game rendering on PC! FIXED
    Performance on PC, post Hotfix? Even More Broken

    So quite apart from the technical issues, there are masses of quest/NPC bugs that are literally blocking progression within the game. If I could be bothered to link all the issues up, above, I would but I can't. All it takes is a browse here to see what's going on which in of itself, quite comically actually, is pointless because its a community help site. EA don't even have proper support forums for their own games.

    Bioware have essentially been absent from their own forums since Nov 26th. A Technical QA guy there took it upon himself to jump into the PC Community Concerns thread but he was clearly told to sever all communication as it literally just ended on that day, after dozens of responses and comments previously.

  • Ubisoft delays Assassin's Creed: Unity's next major patch

  • George-Roper 16/12/2014

    @UkHardcore23

    Erm, is it?

    You realise that the Season Pass is being cancelled, right? They don't get to keep the Season Pass and get a free game.

    So actually what they're doing here is circumventing providing refunds, even for those who bought direct from them.

    The people who wanted the Season Pass are now being forced to give it up and instead choose from a list of games of which they may not even want.

    I mean, is this all it takes to impress gamers after they've been fucked over by appalling quality of software? Lest we forget, those people who 'only' bought AC:U itself aren't being offered a fucking thing apart from this shitty DLC. Yeah, great compensation for months of waiting for patches.

    @7M7

    Has it really got to the point where, rather than simply return a faulty product, people actually anticipate patch releases in the same way you'd normally anticipate the launch of a new game?!

    This has to be the most miserable first 12 months of a generation I can remember. Utterly shameful.
    I could not agree more.

    Shameful behaviour by publishers but equally shameful that sites like EG continue to give these games good scores at release.

    Dragon Age Inquisition is the last game I will ever preorder, from any publisher or dev. It's now on them all to prove they can sell a merchantable quality product at release, rather than several months later, after several patches.

  • Controversial mass murdering game Hatred appears on Steam Greenlight

  • George-Roper 16/12/2014

    @the_rydster

    Hatred is quote possibly a lame game and not worth playing, but I'm failing to see why people need protecting from it.
    Why do you think Valve took it down to 'protect people'?

    They've never said that. They've said its a game they would never personally publish, therefore they don't want it on their platform.

    It's possible for companies to have moral standards. Yes, I realise there are other games on Steam that one could also point the finger at but maybe, just maybe, a mindless civilian slaughter game set in a serious, moody atmosphere was just a step too far for them?
