  • 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.

    @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.

    @FMV-GAMER tbh a return to COD being stripped down and good (COD4) would be nice right about now. COD games now are so bloated. but seems a remaster is the only way thats ever going to happen :/ Reply +1

    "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.

    @FMV-GAMER are the guys who developed the PC version AAA developers? i'm not sure i've even heard of them before if i'm honest. now, the guys who developed the console versions, rocksteady, THOSE are AAA developers. Reply +2

    @XbDf it has dynamic resolution...i guess it will be whatever res it needs to be to retain 60fps. if that means dropping below 720p...so be it. Reply +6
  • KORNdoggy 24/06/2015

    @XbDf gears is a remastered previous gen corridoor shooter and is only 60fps in MP. batman is an open world game that actually looks current gen... it isn't as simple as "same engine should = same performance" Reply +15
  • KORNdoggy 24/06/2015

    @XbDf Xbox actually runs similarly, but at a 900p resolution. it's only the outsourced PC version that's broken. Reply +8

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Could this be the last year 'For the Players' is enough for PlayStation?

  • KORNdoggy 12/06/2015

    haha "needs to evolve". i'd understand if their sales where slowing, or MS where gaining ground. but it seems their message is selling their system just fine and doesn't have much signs of slowing. it will evolve when it needs to. they'll drop their price when they need to, and they will be worried about lack of exclusives when the third party offerings stop being superior on their machine.

    sony can kick back and relax tbh. would a sea of exclusives be nice? yes, of course, but i'm also not stupid and understand the bread and butter of the industry is third party. and if you can offer the best in that catagory you're plain sailing. so yes, sony has no halo 5 for christmas. but it does have the better versions of every single console game out there. not to mention its very likely partnership with the best selling FPS on the market...COD. sony have played this gen incredibly smart. they know exactly what they're doing.

    "the chopper takes roughly a minute to land, another minute to pull out, and another minute still to deposit you at the new LZ." :/

    "its structure feels more akin to a portable game like Peace Walker or Monster Hunter than that of a big budget numbered entry in the series" :/

    "The Phantom Pain is 200 times the size of Ground Zeroes, and while much of that it relatively barren landmass" :/

  • Valve offers closer look at Steam Controller

    @Bauul except a trackpad is nothing like using a mouse. how many people do you see whipping out a trackpad during competative matches of counterstrike, quake and COD? i'm not saying it's useless for some more laid back experiences. but this is a horrible choice as a replacement analogue stick. Reply 0
  • KORNdoggy 05/06/2015

    @ShayenRoyen i have no issues with innovation. it's that they're attempting it with a crappy solution. no-one looked wide eyed and excitedly at a trackpad on a laptop and thought "that right there is the pinacle of control for a shooter" did they? it's why sony's is an addition, not a replacement to the entire right analogue stick. lol Reply 0
  • KORNdoggy 05/06/2015

    looked horrible in the witcher and that FPS. not being able to rotate the camera infinately like you can with an analogue stick but having to lift your thumb and pan like it's a fucking laptop track pad...who though that was a good idea...lol

    sometimes theres a reason a wheel has been a wheel for so long. why the hell are valve trying to reinvent it?

  • Hatred review

  • KORNdoggy 04/06/2015

    i find it interesting that all these reviews claim other games are more shocking than this, and yet it's this that is branded with an AO rating. maybe the point of the game is show how hypocritical gaming media and the rating board is? and how double standards run rife? or maybe how political correctness has made a pussy of the modern american ratings board? i dunno. i actually find that this game mechanically is actually really good. i've played MUCH worse games of this type that have recieved far better scores. i just feel like reviewers havn't looked at the game objectively becasue they're too concerned with the element that ultimately, doesnt matter all that much. the violence.

    doesnt seem ideal for either. one thats framerate fluctuates more and produces constant judder at 900p, or one that is more consistent but dips below the ideal 30 at 1080. in this case i value consistency, so i'm glad i went PS4. Reply -1

    @CloudXIV i'd argue the creator himself doesnt care about consistency in his own series anymore after ground zero's (and by extension phantom pain) he obviously cares not for voice actor staples afterall.

    i honstly think someone else will do MGS better then kojima has done the last few games. something less convoluted and full of needless dialogue and plot points. if we're lucky we'll get something on par with the first MGS. who knows.
