  • Destiny: The Taken King review

  • MrE26 24/09/2015

    So as someone who's only got vanilla Destiny, the cheapest way to get this is to buy the disc version with all 3 DLC's included? Little bit backward isn't it? Reply +1

    @Dismiss My point is, it looks great to me & at no point do I bemoan the fact that it's 900p rather than 1080p. The overall performance of the game is far more important to me. Would I rather it ran the same at 1080p native? Yeah, of course I would but I'd take a stable 900p frame rate over a shaky 1080p one any day. Reply 0
  • MrE26 28/08/2015

    @Dismiss No, it's a 1080p front projector. And no, i didn't put both versions together. I have games that run at 1080p & I have games that run at 900p & I simply use my eyes. I don't see a huge difference between the 2 resolutions when in motion. If I kept pausing & switching back & forth then maybe I would, but why would anyone do that?

    The difference between the 720p Ground Zeroes & Phantom Pain is instantly noticeable however.

    @Cheeky-Girl-Gamer agreed, I was playing the X1 version on a 106" screen & the differences between native 1080p & upscaled from 900p are negligible, even at that screen size. Reply 0

    @Ivattthestanier When it comes to installing Xbox games from disc, always decline any updates that are available when the disc first begins installing. It'll then install the disc contents & you can download & install any updates on launch. If you accept the updates when you first put the disc in, it downloads the whole game & updates from live (usually 30-40gb) & takes a fucking eternity. Reply 0

    I don't think opinions on the quality of something are that subjective. You generally know if something's good or bad, & can enjoy or dislike it regardless.

    I fucking love the movie Commando, I think it's hilarious. Genuinely entertaining as fuck & I'd rather watch Commando than Citizen Kane. Does that mean that in my opinion Commando is the better film? Of course not, I'd be borderline mentally ill to think that.

    Same with Colonial Marines, I got a kick out of visiting the iconic locations from Aliens & there's parts of it that I enjoyed. Does that change the fact that it's a buggy, ugly shitpile of a game with a story that looks like it was pulled from the IMDB message boards & should never have seen the light of day in its current form? Of course not.

  • PewDiePie talks money

  • MrE26 08/07/2015

    To me it sounds like he's just done something he enjoys doing & it's exploded in popularity for whatever reason & he's managed to make a very good living off it. Fair play to the guy. I've only ever seen one of his videos & I found him fairly annoying but with 9 billion views he's obviously doing something right. What he makes for it is nobody's business except his, the entire backlash simply boils down to jealousy. He's getting paid to play games & yell random shit at the screen, something the rest of us have to actually pay for. Shit, I'd swap places with him in a heartbeat. Reply +3

  • After a week, 1m votes cast for Xbox One backwards-compatible games

  • MrE26 24/06/2015

    @SwissTony1994 I think it's more the fact that the games don't run from the discs & need to be downloaded from Live into the emulator to run. If it was just a straight up case of running it from the disc, they wouldn't need permission. Reply +1
  • MrE26 24/06/2015

    @MattRobotnik The fact that they're giving away Fallout 3 free with Fallout 4 is a pretty big indication that it's coming. I can't see them doing a remaster when they can just BC it. Reply +7

  • The Witcher 3 sells 4m copies in two weeks

  • MrE26 09/06/2015

    Well deserved, it's astonishing. Loved the 2nd game but this is something else, it's absolutely gorgeous to look at & is packed with content. Not the padded out quests that pretty much every other game of this type is filled with, each side mission feels like it's had just as much detail piled into it as the main quest line. And Qwent is the videogame equivalent of crack. The whole thing's a masterpiece. Reply +5
  • Dark Souls 2's weapon durability glitch fixed on PC

  • Gears of War remaster set for Xbox One - report

  • MrE26 25/04/2015

    I'd happily buy a Gears Collection & while we're on the subject, an Arkham series remaster. I look at these remakes as no different to upgrading my favourite films to Blu Ray. They're games I'd like to keep playing in the future long after the original console is obsolete, so why not? Reply 0
  • Microsoft apologises for using PC footage in Xbox One Witcher 3 trailer

  • MrE26 23/04/2015

    @Badassbab Everyone does it though. Trailers for multi platform games tend to be identical in spite of whether they have an X1, PS4 or PC logo at the end of them. Demo footage often shows areas that are nowhere to be seen in the final game. Dark Souls 2 & Colonial Marines showed games that looked 10x better than what was actually released. Screenshots released for games in development are almost always flawless, even if the released version is a sub-HD jaggy fest.

    It's not right, but it's done across the board.

    It's definitely a product of it's time, but i'll take it over the action oriented, slo-mo explosion heavy recent additions to the series. It's still a great game. Reply +31
  • Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings review

  • MrE26 14/01/2015

    I actually really enjoyed Unity, thought it was a good addition to the franchise. I played on X1 from patch 2 onwards & never had any issues with it. Looking forward to playing through this. Reply +4
  • Games of 2014: Alien: Isolation

    Also, Ridley Scott refused to use the Alien in Prometheus as he claims it's not scary anymore. Someone should show him this game. Reply +2
  • MrE26 27/12/2014

    Loved this, finally an Alien game that did the franchise justice. Atmosphere was absolutely perfect, any fears about it being too repetitive were handled well, the fan service they threw in there was done beautifully & it was tense as fuck throughout.

    The old school design & saving mechanic added massively to the game, & i always felt that any deaths (& there were many) were my own fault. Although the Alien is a fucking DICK.

    Exactly what an Alien game should be. Now, give them a sequel set during the initial outbreak on LV426 & I'll be as happy as a pig in shit.

  • Latest Assassin's Creed Unity patch boosts performance

  • MrE26 23/12/2014

    Played it on X1 since patch 2 & I've honestly not had any issues. It drops a little in crowded areas but it's far from game breaking & it's no worse than most open world games have been for years. The initiates/companion app stuff is a bit shit but totally optional & the rewards are pointless fluff anyway. My honest opinion is that it's no worse than any other AC games have been, performance wise.

    The game itself is a fairly standard AC game wrapped around a fucking gorgeous looking city. Not sure what anyone else expected at this point? It's cheap as fuck now & it's well worth a look if you're a fan of the franchise. If you aren't, even if it was running at 1080p & 60fps, the game was never gonna convert you anyway.

    How about people just play whichever system they own & don't fucking concern themselves with the one they don't? These articles should be handy for those who own both & are deciding which machine to buy the game for but they've turned into clickbait.

  • Who needs games: PlayStation 4's first year

  • MrE26 15/11/2014

    This happens with pretty much every recent console launch. You have a bunch of games that over-promise & under-deliver & the rest are just shinier versions of the previous generations games. It's around years 2-3 that the systems bugs get ironed out, development tools improve & devs get a handle on what the systems can & can't do. The previous gen machines then quickly become obsolete & we start seeing games built from the ground up for the new ones. It's always been the case & it always will be.

    Both X1 & PS4 already have enough of a userbase to make either a fairly safe purchase.

    @Badassbab Hmm, I'm not sure. Although I'd imagine if they're capturing footage of the 360 version it'd be a lot easier to capture the Xbox version using the 360 emulator at the same time. Reply 0

  • MrE26 30/10/2014

    @Simatron3000 it's not that bad, it's perfectly playable & looks... well, like San Andreas running in 720p. They could definitely have put a bit more effort in & ported the PC game across with full analogue support but for 3 it's a passable enough version. Reply +2
  • MrE26 30/10/2014

    I'd still take 720p versions of Vice City & GTA3 for the same price, mobile ports or not. Reply +7
  • MrE26 30/10/2014

    For 3 it's hard to argue with it & it's still a fun game to revisit, but it really does play like a cheap, stripped down version of a classic game.

    Analogue controls for driving are gone, 5.1 audio is dropped & It's a little glitchy.

  • Xbox boss Phil Spencer makes case for Tomb Raider exclusivity deal

  • MrE26 18/08/2014

    As much as i understand people being pissed off about this, from a business point of view you can't really blame Square for taking the money. They'd have been up against Uncharted on PS4 anyway, so this allows them to avoid going head on with Naughty Dog & then release on PS4 once the Uncharted hype has died down. It's a no-brainer for them.

    I can't really see Tomb Raider having any meaningful impact on X1's fortunes anyway.
