  • Iron Man mod swoops into Grand Theft Auto 5

  • KORNdoggy 31/07/2015

    god, the animation is terrible. they had half decent hover and flying animations in the iron man GTA4 mod. where are they here? also. someone needs to re-animate the walking animation. iron man with a franklin pimp walk just looks friggin weird. it's a start though at least. Reply -27

    didn't like this much. just wasn't as interesting as the first 2. also would have preferred to see hand drawn animation rather then badly done cel shading. but i guess it's easier/quicker. Reply +2

    @dogmanstaruk sony has the biggest presence at gamescom in terms of booth size just like every year. they're just not having a conference since it's so soon after E3. it's hardly lackadaisical, especially when the momentum of that almost surreal dream E3 (shenmue, FF7, last guardian) is still carrying them. instead they have TGS for the likes of persona, dragon quest, hopefully dark cloud 3, and then their stand alone event in paris for more western announcements which situated much closer to Christmas. giving them the most mind-share approaching the gift giving period. it makes more sense to me then MS's approach of announcing everything was missing E3 and going to gamescom. but i guess we'll find out if it's a tactic that pays off.

  • Yager's segmented Dead Island 2 team files for insolvency

  • KORNdoggy 29/07/2015

    @robbiejc85 how about something to do with the 2000ad license. Slaine? another Dredd game? Joe Pineapples? Sinister Dexter? Finn? you guys were really getting into the swing of things with Rogue Trooper...then the 2000ad games kinda just died. Reply +3
  • KORNdoggy 29/07/2015

    @Porcupine_I based on footage, i think it was more the fact the game seemed quite "standard" when compared to dying light. it was a dead island sequel that didn't seem to really add much in terms of new stuff. dying light added free running and much more verticality. combined with dead rising 3 and sunset overdrive there were developments being made to that sort of game and dead island 2 didn't seem to be making any of it's own. i think if dying light never happened this would still be in production. it took a lot of wind out of its sails.

    EDIT: i predict in a year or so yager won't be around.

  • Uncharted 4 pushes PS4 tech to the next level

  • KORNdoggy 16/07/2015

    @Antropie is this satire? it's hard to tell but the screenshots you linked to show aliasing, show low res blurry textures, and "targetting" 1080p/30fps isn't really confirmation that's what it'll run at. but maybe that was the point in the post? Reply +1

    seems this gen sony are only competing with themselves when it comes to one-upping each other visually. killzone < infamous < driveclub < the order < uncharted < ? MS seems to have given up trying which is a bit disappointing really. i liked the back and fourth they had going with the 360.

    anyway, this game looks phenomenal. both visually and everything else. ND proving yet again that they really are the only ones in the business who really understand this sort of cinematic approach to gameplay. the competition are still catching up to what uncharted 2 achieved 6 years ago. i just hope that's all we see of the games set-pieces. uncharted 3 was amazing, but they ruined a lot of it by showing off all the big cinematic moments.

  • Take a look at Uncharted 2 remastered for PlayStation 4

  • KORNdoggy 16/07/2015

    i know U2 and U3 will scale well to PS4, they were benchmark titles last gen so they're bound to look nice. what i'm curious about is the first game. it's texture work still stands up well, alongside its animations, but certain elements could do with tweeks. i'd like to see U2/3 gameplay changes retrofitted to drakes fortune. and i'd love to see that horrible explosion effect replaced with something better. maybe some colour balance fixes too since the first game was super high contrast...just make it look a bit better, and change the grenade controls to match later games.

  • You can now play hours of Dragon Age: Inquisition for free on PC

  • KORNdoggy 15/07/2015

    @TOOTR i can't speak for Dubya, but for me the quests are all boring fetch-fests! characters and story are uninteresting! open world is rendered pointless when there is nothing but collectathons to do within it! the combat is shallow! and whats worse, is those really awful side "quests" are forced on you to accumulate enough "power" to activate the story missions...well, until around lvl 6 influence where they figure everyone will be sick of playing the "content" and let you buy power from a vendor.

    it's one of the worst RPG's i've ever had the missfortune of playing...and i've played the likes of two worlds and risen. lol

    @Shadders it's work in progress. they said it was work in progress and it will be work in progress until it's released in 2017. they're just showing the development process like most of them do via kickstarter. i mean, even the character models arn't final. it's all just placeholder. Reply +3
  • Amazon Prime day deals detailed

  • KORNdoggy 15/07/2015

    @gravearchitecture there is no faff? it just supports a broader range of better supported, newer emulators, hence better dreamcast performance. shenmue was an example. dreamcast as a whole runs like shit on raspberry pi. but if you don't care for the dreamcast, then sure. raspberry pi is a good enough choice too. Reply 0
  • KORNdoggy 15/07/2015

    @gravearchitecture

    best to go for the odroid C1, it has vastly superior performance for similar price. can actually run shenmue smoothly...something the raspberry pie 2 cannot.

    i was hoping the xbone deal would be lower then 300 tbh. it's the only way i'll bite given the fact there isn't a ton of reason to own it (already have a PC/PS4/Wii-U) and the fact there were deals earlier in the year that were way better (279.99 with a game) Reply +1

  • Don't call the new Hitman an early access game

  • KORNdoggy 09/07/2015

    @VibratingDonkey you can't trade something in you don't physically own. Hence the digital first apprach. They saw how fast absolution dropped in price and was traded in/sold on ebay, and this...this prevents people from doing so...for a year at least, when they'll then charge full price again for a game that is a year old..lol It's smart on their end, massively anti-consumer for us though. Reply +1
  • KORNdoggy 09/07/2015

    @danger.to.others errr. Except much like the shitty idea of season passes, you're buying into content you know nothing about and could very well be worthless. There will be reviews of the content the game launches with and nothing more, potentially putting you in a position of "owning" half a digital game for full price and getting shit content added in the future. This is a bad approach for any game, hitman included. Now, if it was cheaper, like all other episodic games, it would minimise the risk and make it a valid approach. But 45 for half a game and who knows what the year later...that's just plain terrible. Reply 0
  • KORNdoggy 09/07/2015

    This approach has pushed me away. As a physical release gamer, i guess i'm left waiting until some undisclosed moment they release the complete edition, by which point i may not even care. Bad approach, and one that only serves as a means to kill trade ins. Reply +1
  • Can Halo 5 deliver on its 60fps promise?

  • KORNdoggy 08/07/2015

    @NYKilla80 obviously it could turn things around by launch. hopefully it will. but based on what we've been shown currently, it's hardly a looker. it has pretty bad effects with a low res framebuffer (gran turismo 5 level jaggies around objects with smoke effects in the scene), and it's one of the jaggiest current gen games i've ever laid eyes on with constant shimmering around everything. all that with a wildly fluctuating, often unacceptable resolution and not even 60fps...i genuinely hope it is a rushed demo, but i'm dubious. i expected better from a first party developer. Reply 0
  • KORNdoggy 08/07/2015

    it's good to see performance be a priority for 343 but it seems they're sacrificing too much or struggling to achieve it. the game doesnt look very impressive visually or scale wise. it's having to dynamically drop resolution to almost unacceptible levels for a current gen system. and it STILL isn't a locked 60FPS. they're uncompromising approach in regards to framerate has resulted in what appears to be a game that misses the mark across the board. it's not locked 60. it's not 1080p. and it's not very pretty. it's a lose/lose/lose result in my eyes.

    but worse of all for me personally is that they've lied to us about why split-screen isn't included. the simulations clearly arn't tied to framerate. otherwise the framerate would be a rock solid 60.

  • Is DriveClub finally up to speed?

  • KORNdoggy 07/07/2015

    @UkHardcore23 forza 5 shouldn't have been released. It was a feature lacking "update" and felt rushed (it was) not to mention the DLC. don't like open world racers at all, they're tedious, so horizon was shit. Pcars was a bit of a mess on consoles, but at least achieved some basics in regards to weather and day/night cycles. and AC i can't say i've played.

    All of those i played lacked the one thing driveclub had in spades....fun!

  • Rise of the Tomb Raider brings back Lara's sense of adventure

  • KORNdoggy 26/06/2015

    i dont mind this being like the last one in it's more cinematic, action focused "uncharted-like" gameplay. but i didnt like seeing the exact same things we saw in the last game. like having to upgrade our equipment in the same fashion...AGAIN...by this point i figure she's be a bit more prepared. you know. maybe starting the game with a high powered compound bow. not bending a twig and tying a bit of string to it. it feels dumb. kinda like i'd expect her to be dual weilding her iconic pistols by now.

    i want to see her develop as a character. not stay as this whiney little english brat who falls over a lot. when does the lara croft we know and love start to bleed into her personality and actions? i dunno. what i'm seeing is TOO MUCH of the same. but maybe they've just demo'd it badly up to this point?

    on the plus side. it has nice snow and hair effects.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight on PS4 is a technical tour de force

  • KORNdoggy 24/06/2015

    @jerjef tbh a delayed analysis of xbox version is only doing the xbox version favours. we know it's sub 1080p, suffers a lot of screen tear and framedrops in the batmobile and even lacks some effects. keeping that hush hush is problably helping the game sell on that system. Reply +4

    @Suarez07 small fry compared to sales now. but compared to their previous best selling COD it was massive! and i agree...it's why they'd never make a new COD in the MW1 style. but that's why a remaster of that game in particular would be welcomed. it's now different enough from current clusterfuck-COD to appeal to a different market. plus there will be the curious 12 year olds who never got to play it in the first place who'll check it out and realise how vastly superior it is.

  • KORNdoggy 24/06/2015

    @FMV-GAMER yeah, i'd like a return to that too. i dont really like how trends seem to work in the games industry. someone does something successfull, be it WW2 themes, modern era warfare, futuristic warfare and then everyone jumps on the bandwaggon and runs it into the ground untill everyone is stick of it and we don't see anymore games using said themes for years if ever again.

    i'm noticing it with the victorian era london aesthetic recently. what i've never understood is why the fantasy themes of swords and magic get a pass despite being used over and over again with little to no attempt at making it unique? why is it ok to play yet another LotR styled RPG, yet the notion of new WW2 shooter is just "crazy"? *shrugs*

    @bad09 they can remaster COD every 6 months for all i care. once they've done COD4 i'd be happy. the rest i wouldn't have any interest in. Reply 0
  • KORNdoggy 24/06/2015

    @Suarez07 don't agree with that really. COD 4 was the big mainstream success for the franchise. it jumped from a 2-ish million seller with COD2 to a 14-ish million seller with COD4. and it's just gotten more and more popular since. but COD4 was the turning point. the start of killstreaks and perk systems. it was just simpler. more balanced and more fun.

    "Fed up with the so called graphics war.
    Means nothing to me, the game will play and look great on the Xbox One too. It's not going to be an eyesore is it now?"

    see this is how people should be. he has the lesser version of the game on a weaker platform and is enjoying it anyway. the game looks good and runs decent. not as good as the competiton, but if you only own an xbone you dont really have much choice. i managed to enjoy the weaker versions of previous gen games despite looking and performing worse (PS3 version), now it's Xbox owners turn.

  • Face-Off: Payday 2: Crimewave Edition

  • KORNdoggy 24/06/2015

    @positiveion i'm just saying how eurogamer are known to word things. read any of their face offs, they all say that there is visual parity, most people read between the lines and realise they talking in regards to assets, textures, AA implimentation etc. and then discus the few decernable differences in regards to draw distence or DOF, or LOD or resolution etc.

    now, if the "blurry textures" where a cause of them being lower res, i wouldn't expect the use of the word parity. but seeing as that isn't the case i'm not too bothered.

    and based on your definitions eurogamers arn't exactly wrong. based on sight, the assets are equal, hence parity. there is visual parity there...it just doesnt cover all elements. they're being selective...as they always are.
    Reply +2
  • KORNdoggy 23/06/2015

    @cloudskipa the visual parity he is talking about is in regards to assets (models, texture resolution etc) which they are exactly the same. and he says one has much better AF within the body of the text. all face offs do this. they say there is parity and then proceed to list off differences, be it performance, AF, screen tearing, LOD, texture streaming etc etc. Reply +6
  • KORNdoggy 23/06/2015

    @XbDf one of them works for it's intended purpose (online play) and the other does not. once both are patched (PS4 for its AF and Xbone for it's broken online functionality) then neither will win, it'll be a tie.

    How can they possibly recommend a game, even with added AF, that isn't fit for purpose? it's like recommending a farrari to get you from point A to B that doesnt have an engine.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight review

  • KORNdoggy 23/06/2015

    @XbDf gamersyde.com has a performance analysis for xbox. it's pretty solid overall, but suffers framedrops and heavy screen tearing during the batmobile stuff. but you should be happy with the results. no word on resolution from anyone yet as far as i'm aware, i'm sure some pixel counter can help with that though.

    remember ignorance is bliss. buy the game and enjoy it. what difference does it make knowing the PS4 version is better or the PC version is broken?
    Reply +3
  • KORNdoggy 23/06/2015

    @XbDf PS4 version is the most technically competent while also performing best. it's clear it was the lead development platform. PC version sounds broken based on user reviews and the Xbone version, while perfectly decent, isn't as much of a showpeice due to required visual and perfomance cut-backs.

    as a publisher you send out the best version to review. in this case it was the PS4 version.
