  • The Division has graphics settings we're not used to seeing on console

  • MeBrains 08/02/2016

    there's all sorts of graphical issue with the Xbox. I see prebaked lighting, prebaked shadows, a lack of HDR, missing textures (a LOT!) and reflections in pools or streaks of ice appear to match "reality" a lot better on PS4.

    all by my untrained eye. glancing once at the 3:38 video. Stopping here and there.

    you don't?!

    you must check the visors mateys. the shortcomings are damn obvious.

    Was this already tackled in a (previous) (beta) face-off? Or are we indeed lead to believe that, all things considered, "both are equal"?

    edit: all by my untrained eye. glancing once at the 3:38 video. Stopping here and there.

    edit 2: it has, here. So, indeed, we are lead to believe that both are to be considered equal with the comparison tool's screenshots almost all taken from cutscenes which, I believe, are streamed of disc. The moment real gameplay starts like in the clip above, differences, frankly, are huge!

    @KanevilPS_
    I'm sorry but on consoles performance should be already taken care of unless this will enable something drastic like 60fps. I would bet though that this will let you get closer to a locked 30fps which is wrong and should already be at least a locked 30fps in my opinion.
    @ChockysChild. I agree with you both.

    I do not like the evolution. And to me, it seems like Ubisoft is in dire need of great* programmers when they have to start using solutions like this on fixed hardware in order to achieve the frametime necessary to provide a smooth experience. An option allowing the switch between a (set) 30fps and another (graphically reduced set) to 60fps might make sense.

    * should Ubisoft programmers read that; I know how it sounds and I apologize for it. You are great programmers, and it probably will have been a management decision to include all that settings crap. Mgnt and MKT does want to say: "8x SSAA", "chromatic aberration" and all the other buzzword graphic technology printed on the box.

  • Red Dead Redemption backwards compatible on Xbox One... for a few hours

  • MeBrains 08/02/2016

    @schoozzzmmii
    Given the Digital Foundry article showed that some games were released in a state which included slowdown (severe in the case of Halo Reach), it seems a bit presumptive to assume that slowdown will be fixed in Red Dead. Best wait for its actual release no?
    that line indeed is presumptive given the state of affairs.

    I'd say we need an article stating 10 reasons why not to preorder the order. Sorry, scrap that, 10 reasons why RDR's BC will likely have issues.

    no?

    So good that it is almost more next-gen in appearance than the many visually compromised eighth generation games like Halo 5.
    waw. I don't know what would happen if I would say something like that; yet, from the footage I have seen of the latter, I seem to have to agree.

    ME:C looks quite ok. I got the original one, but, like eightbitboy, I never got into the controls. Maybe that's because I'm from the time I liked left-right to move and button to shoot. Even the hellish Defender was way too difficult for me. Now, getting older, I tend to prefer going back to basics - these rare times I end up playing games.

    @cloudskipa
    Ep13 was bullied off the forum IMO, he did spam post a lot and did a little bit of winding up but he caught a completely disproportinate amount of hate from the NeoGAF hive for daring to be an Xbox enthusiast.
    the thing which irked me into using the report function against him for the first time ever, was that thread when he started talking about short circuit out of the blue and kept on going, next to the "honest" drivel, about it for posts on end.

    he was banned, came back. I welcomed him and advised him - like others had done as well. It took 3-4 days for him to return to his "old" Ep13 self. I must say, as GoldenFrog, he is way more pleasant.

    BUT, I also agree with you. Certain other, long-time members no less, are way worse in the abuse department. Using personal insults the moment they are not able to reply / the moment they are cornered. They even come out for it ("Hey. I never stopped insulting you lol. So far for reading comprehension huh fuckwit?! :cool: "). That, to me, is way worse than any Ep13, DX, Xbdf, Antropie, MuBrains or whatever "fanboy".

    But this site? It allows that abuse - but at the same time is all riled up when somebody dares to use the incredibly childish but impersonal "gaystation". Oh noes! What an offense!

    It's like what some blinded and subjective individuals have been saying I suppose.

    As for everybody else who do not follow some kind of agenda, you would understand the chase towards a tagline as something which is ab-so-lu-te-ly normal.

    Should we be outraged, like some here seem to be, for "Just do it", "think different", "I'm loving it", "Because you're worth it", "Works like a dream", "Do more", "Never follow", "Connecting people", "Get out there", "That was easy", "There's no equal", "Think small", "For life", "The next stage", "Believe", "The power of dreams", "Fair and balanced" or even "Where do you want to go today?"? Then please, if it makes you happy.

    @higganos hey. I was not exclusively talking about or defending Antropie. As said - I don't generally connect and eternally am reminded of what a user does or has done. In the post he made in this thread, he sure didn't seem like the prick he was made out to be by some. Reply +2

    @higganos
    Tbh, I think Antropie got his fair share of "admirers" as he was theoretically an argumentative brick wall.
    I sometimes am an "argumentative brick wall" as well. I certainly can be perceived so. I'll use arguments though; not the personal attacks. - Although, in my 8y history here, I will have failed on occasion.

    Thing with me, personally, is, I do not connect to the anonymous users here. I might have remembered the handles, but I mostly didn't the arguments, their positions - with notable exceptions.

    I'm here to discuss the industry and yup, I do have my opinion and preference, which I can state "my" arguments for and I do. To some who know me after these 8 years, these arguments have become "one and the same" - always the same. Some have been increasingly vocal to call me "fanboy" and ok, I understand why I can be perceived so. But to give up discussion, dialogue and communication in favour of ad-hominem attacks? Nah. I don't know if I want to be part of an EG supporting that.

    @IronSoldier well soldier, I guess you do know that cloudskipa and I are no real friends huh? in fact, given the console we each seem to prefer, we are total opposites and have had our share fare of back and forth bickering.

    should I have ever held personal negativity towards him, I could have joined the fray with that comment he was disproportionately called out for. I didn't though and you know that. He used "that" word in (extremely) childish jest - so why bother? Why report?

    I have more, a lot more of an issue, with some members going extremely personal. Using personal attacks as they seem :cool: without any kind of moderation. Who are able to say, as a self-proclaimed confession no less - "LOL! I never stopped insulting". If that kind of attitude indeed is the kind EG wants to support, myeah, I don't really feel "connected" anymore.

    that attitude is not only "homophobic" ("against men") in its strictest sense; it is rude, impolite and "xenophobic" in its broadest.

    @Antropie reading your comment you don't sound like the inconsiderate, blinded and one-sided person you are made out to be by the usual suspects. In fact, you sound reasonable.

    +1

    My mentioning that by itself is sure to rile up these usual suspects against me another time. I'll surely be negged, and then attacked, vilified and personally insulted.

    If that is what EG supports, then I am considering moving away from this community as well. And yup. That does "hurt". For somebody having been brought up in the seventies, pulling my parents towards arcade halls because these, still mechanical, devices intrigued me even back then as a five year old, having bought my first computer myself in 1981 and having followed the industry, quite close, ever since, it will be difficult not to read the news - as well as the public's perception to it through the comments section.

    This place though, with the moderation at hand, and the vile, personal, aggressive and inappropriate replies it allows against some by some, is not the place I really identify with anymore. I learned to keep it civil. EG allows for bigotry which, to me, is even worse than fanboyism and plain and inpolitely outspoken asinine "assertiveness".

    well all these persons are really not persons having a different opinion than you have. Your answer is like saying - hey, I am no bigot, I get along with my select few friends! oh god. your answer really is a bit silly.


    BTW, I thought you had me on ignore. I guess you really need a sanity check from me now and then :D.
    actually. not a sanity check, rather a test. which you failed miserably. I was wondering how long it would take before you would start using personal insults...

    ... not long indeed. :lol:

    Edit: More as an FYI - I don't report people. I don't call for people to be banned. From what I have heard you have done both (just not here). Irony is not thy friend MuBrains.

    In English the word "bigot" refers to a person whose habitual state of mind includes an obstinate, irrational, or unfair intolerance of ideas, opinions, ethnicities, or beliefs that differ from their own, and intolerance of the people who hold them.

    @timeless001 I was not alluding to you reporting Skippa, nor to you calling for his ban. I know that.

    What I was answering to is my observation that this has wholly been pulled out of context - absurdly so.

    Look. Back in the nineties and 2000's I was one to defend a certain person's orientation. Always said that it is up to the individual to know. That history itself proves that homosexuality has always existed and that the individual's "heart" was more important than his or her (sexual) orientation / religion / descendance etc.

    Now, ever since June last year, there seems to be some kind of crusade against persons who take it all with a grain of salt - even when that grain was poured into a sweet smelling, but spicy soup. "Jest" about LGBT (or sexism) is just not done anymore. You witness the sign of the times here on this thread. And I think that's absolute stupidity.

    I do have another opinion about the personal insults. I think that is far worse than the generalization which has been used here. You don't "attack" anybody with using "gaystation" - there's no emotional feeling. You do have (an emotional feeling) when you continuously tell persons, the individuals you're targetting, they're fools.

    Anyhows. Enough said.

    @timeless001 why should he have to withdraw that comment when there is nothing wrong with it? Why did mods see the need to do so? If anything, it was absolutely childish. Everybody agrees there - including skippa.

    I do seem to have an issue with all that protectiveness towards LGBT. If they can't handle that kind of expression (referring to "gaystation" here), then "they" have an issue really. If some of "us" (the SJWs) find it normal now to have to go the extend of "reporting" that totally impersonal use of the word "gay", while you don't use the report functionality against certain others whose every other post contain very personal attacks like "(fucking or compulsive) liar", "dumbass", "(fucking) stupid", "dumb fuck", "muppet", "fuckwit" and so on and so on (including the refusal to name somebody by his / her chosen handle and continuously "mistype" it); you have your priorities wrong.

    I think the latter type of members deserve warnings and bans far more than one who generally is quite eloquent and ONCE uses a word which should not even be reacted to the way it was!

    :epic facepalm: Oh here we go again. I'm lost for words, what I said was a playful joke, it wasn't supposed to be taken seriously or cause offence (hence the wink). I know some of you don't like me but resorting to such underhand methods of reporting in the hopes I receive a ban when some of you have comment histories almost entirely comprised of trolling/baiting other members is a little too rich to stomach! LOL
    entirely agree. this child-like behaviour of acting all upset because of ONE word, written in jest, is absurd.

    EG "cleaning up" the article by deleting posts containing it even more.

    like I mentioned yesterday in my deleted post. "GayStation" has been used quite a lot of times on this site without anybody taking the ridiculous position they do now. It seems like ever since June 29th last year, the "world" has become less tolerant. Certainly from LGBT supporters to these who are on the fence and think it all is a bit blown up at times.

    If you do not find that an irony in itself; you need your head checked.

    They remaster UC collection and GOW and they are past "glories" and you like to call them.
    Or doesn't this fit into your fanboy agenda
    well no, it indeed is not the same thing.

    what blahblah seems to allude to is MS having Halo and Forza as their "flagship" products for 15 and 11 years respectively and doing little to expand their franchises, while its competition does expand. With some being winners, and some less so, but MS doesn't do that.

    Sony releases remasters, next to offering one new IP after the other, is in a totally different ballpark. Sony had remasters last year (2015), it had genuinely new exclusives (some good, some bad) and new IPs. MS had... new instalments of last years versions.

    You weren't wrong about @MeBrains! His latest reply to me is not only a little 'out there' but he's as much a SDF member as the fantards posting here are XDF. Scary!
    lol. okays.

    just for your records, I have another small snippet of Sony news for you which you can use for years on end to "prove" how extremely bad the company is at engineering. Trust me - you're going to love this.


    at the turn of the century, the Scuderia Ferrari had chosen VAIO to provide the laptops they'd use in their pits to monitor their cars and performance. However, the chosen VAIO model was way too unstable, BSOD'ing a few times a day. Sony was unable to fix the problem in due time. The deal was cancelled and Acer was chosen instead. Trust me twice: I held one of the Ferrari-red prototypes and, except for the Ferrari-logo and colour, it was an ugly machine. Not all VAIOs were exceptional - far from it. But some, like the one I linked to, were real gems and way ahead of their time.


    I don't know what @MeBrains would say to your revelation but I'd say to watch out for your crown jewels getting burned by Sony's dodgy batteries, haha!
    nah. should Frazl not be able to reproduce - it would be no loss to humanity. :D :P


    You know that Sony is one of the leading battery manufacturers, right? Any guess how many are produced each year? Subsequently, do you have an idea how many fail, burn and explode? What's the failure rate you think? 1%? 0.1? 0.001? Lower?

    @IronSoldier I believe all tech companies using cutting edge technology sometimes do release products which have flaws. In fact, I think all products have known flaws when they ship.

    as for the batteries - all these reports came at a time when Sony went through this global crusade against it. I always wondered why that "movement" existed. they were and have always been extremely isolated cases - yet, here we are, 2016, "we" still remember.

    Dell had a "burning" battery as well. A little known fact was that the battery was used outside of manufacturer's (Sony's) specifications. Sony however took it on them as to not alienate a good customer (for batteries, panels, imaging sensors and probably quite a bit more).

    You always seem to want to chose the dark side talking about the Japanese company. Yes, VAIO was sold. So what? Yes, it had received bad press. So what?

    It doesn't do away with engineering marvels it created as well. That UX I mentioned: a handheld laptop with slide-out keyboard running full Windows XP in 2003. Ever held one? It still is amazing to the touch.



    edit: btw - that UX was made when VAIO was wholly Sony-owned. So stop your lol-ing! ;)

    not such a bad track record me(objectively)thinks.

    that timeline doesn't list engineering gems like VAIO-UX, or the PictureBook, or their cameras - their most recent flagship DSLR near to taking Nikon's crown for example - rave reviews almost consistently.

    But anyhows. You're right that there have been accurate reports on (some of) the issues you mention. Some others? Meh. Piss poor WiFi on PS3? Seriously? I got piss-poor Wifi on my brand new mobile at times, or my audio, my TV.

    you are far to intelligent for me,and that copy paste from where ever you got all that info must've been very difficult.
    LOL!

  • Is it time for a PS4 SSD upgrade?

    In translation, you're feeling sore after @frazzl humiliated you for your Sony shilling yesterday. The comments from myself in that discussion were extremely mild relative to the bitchslapping he gave you.
    who's Frazzl? ;)


    Then again, you were crying in that thread after I made a mockery of your hyperbolic claim that Sony has "engineering in its DNA" so I don't doubt that you're still smarting over it and are now looking to retaliate.
    does it look like I care what you said? I stand by the point I made and gave you the reasons why I do so.

    I'm just observing how you flip-flop between viewpoints in what you seem to think is a fair-and-balanced approach towards both main platforms.

    and I try not to get personal - unlike this other dude Frazzl I "knew" all these months ago. The moment he was cornered, he's extremely rude while avoiding the questions one asks. Much like some others. Are you another one?

    Your ever more contrived attempts to politely trashtalk Sony while bigging up Microsoft is providing much amusement value so please don't ever change.

  • DriveClub is getting a Hardcore mode in February

  • MeBrains 23/01/2016

    @cloudskipa sure. one just doesn't do that.

    much the same. probably a line used, at least in Germany, by Microsoft as well.

    it didn't get as much attention like it should not.

    in fact, quoting press is as old as video games themselves. now, to blame Sony for that line or its usage, is nonsense. that's what I reacted to in your original post.

    I'm just here waiting for the 'Complete Edition'.
    better stick to Forza then. You can always pay more and more and more until you think you have the 'complete edition'! ;)

    Oh cool, Horizon better watch it's back as Driveclub is going hardcore!
    I think it to be immensely funny to see "Horizon" and "hardcore" in one line.

    You see, it makes me a mental connotation of Horizon being hardcore (racing sim).

    One in which you race super sports cars across dirt tracks!

    :rolleyes:


    on topic - I thought one of the major "grudges" against DC was that it was too unforgiving already. Now Evolution is going to increase difficulty?

    hardcore! they should really add the über-realistic "rewind" option!

    edit: btw. are you sure Sony themselves labelled it "forza killer"? Wasn't it a certain journo "Matt Martin"? A quote which was then used by Sony to promote the game - like all studio's / publishers are using journo quotes to flaunt their wares?
