  • Nintendo hardware sales in the Americas are worse than you'd expect

  • NotaEuroGamer 27/09/2016

    Not exactly news to me, given that I look at the numbers ever time they're updated. For a lot of people, mostly casuals, handhelds were replaced with something shitty but more convenient, played on a device that you already own anyway, and you always have on you. Obviously would also say that there's less demand for handhelds, not no demand. Reply 0

    @Spuzzell BO3 had a dynamic resolution, but mostly sticks to 1080p. So it's possible this one is the same, meaning not strictly 1080p. Reply +1

    This is an Activation game, it isn't up to Sony. Besides, it's already targeting 60fps. Reply 0
  • NotaEuroGamer 26/09/2016

    @Fourfoldroot Wll, you'd expect frame rate parity to mean they're both 30fps or they're both 60fps, not they both fail to hit the target 60fps consistently enough. Parity just means both 30 or both 60. However this is a game in development, and they haven't had much time with Pro, so it's to be expected that they'll have a better performance profile for both versions come release. I'm not too optimistic on campaign performance through, as BO3 performance in that mode was all over the place. However Zombie and MP had solid performance. Reply 0

    Been looking at Vive and Rift recent sales estimates, it seems like they have really fallen off a cliff. Looks like PSVR is the only one with an actual chance to turn VR into a thing, in gaming that is. Reply -3

  • "We got caught in a s***storm"

  • NotaEuroGamer 20/09/2016

    Excellent interview, you should really try doing more of this.

    The first game caught me by surprise when I tried the demo, it was much better than what I was expecting. I bought the game based on that and started playing it. However, the more I played the more my opinion of it went down. Ultimately I reached a point mid game where I didn't want to keep playing, so I stopped and never picked it up again. Obviously I didn't get the 2nd one after that. There are certain things about the game that were done well, however I don't think it lives up to the franchise's legacy prior to it at all.

  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will not support PlayStation 4 Pro features

  • NotaEuroGamer 20/09/2016

    @Creamysmooth Oh no, I wasn't implying that they should. Charging for Pro patches would be absurd. I'm just surprised that they don't see much incentive in patching their game given its popularity, and the light workload needed to improve it at least to a certain degree. I imagine they could change their mind and put a couple of people on the job if PS4 Pro proved more popular than they assumed. Reply +4
  • NotaEuroGamer 20/09/2016

    @carmagainagain DS3 and Bloodborne, now that's what I actually want. Especially Bloodborne, since it's only on PS4 and there isn't a better version of it on anything. Would the frame pacing problem go away though? Hmmm. Reply +1
  • NotaEuroGamer 20/09/2016

    Maybe that "Pro patches could cost you money" mistranslation would have swayed them the other way if it were true. I'd imagine plenty of people wouldn't mind paying $5 for a better version on the platform, given the game's popularity. Personally though I wouldn't care either way, as I don't plan to go back to the game whichever the case. One playthrough was more than enough to get my fill. Reply +1

  • NotaEuroGamer 14/09/2016

    This is simply the best puzzle focused game I have ever played, and in some ways one of the best games I have ever played. I'm not even a puzzle game type of guy.

    I remember asking a friend if he's planning to play it and him telling me that he could just play similar games on his phone. Long story short, I bought him the game and he sent me a message the next day saying "Mind blown!"

    The only type of person I wouldn't recommend this to is someone who thinks he/she is kind of slow, as it might frustrate them. Not a dig, just being honest. Also, the game is a steal at $40 (It's cheaper now). I enjoyed those 50+ hours immensely, not a single dull moment or content padding checklist activity.

  • Battlefield 1 open beta launches this month

  • NotaEuroGamer 29/08/2016

    It does look pretty interesting. I'm sure the multi-player will be strong (Although I would love it if they were to come up with at least 1 new and innovative mode, like they did with Rush years ago). Single player however is a different story, other than being impressive from a technically prospective, it has always been dull (except Bad Company 2, that one had a good single player campaign). Hopefully the single player in this one is interesting. It definitely has the potential to be interesting given the setting. Reply +1
  • Digital Foundry: Let's build a 1080p60 gaming PC

  • NotaEuroGamer 29/08/2016

    My personal experience with PC gaming:

    - Stage 1: Love it and willing to put up with all the cons.
    - Stage 2: Getting tired of the cons, especially as I discover more of them. Still like it overall.
    - Stage 3: Generally do not like the platform and feel forced to use it for multiplats as there isn't an alternative that offers me the option of paying more for better performance.
    - Stage 4: TBD.

    Also, it never made me feel like I don't need a console. At the same time, I wouldn't have enjoyed my gaming all the same without it at all. Can't imagine dumping PC if regular PS4 and XB were going to remain the only alternative option for another 3 or 4 years, as that's the main reason I got back to PC in the 2nd half of 360/PS3 after leaving it behind as a kid in the mid-late 90s. Interested to see if Neo and Scorpio would change that (upgraded consoles in general, 60fps standard potential). Nintendo is another beast that I can't imagine living without regardless of what the other platforms are doing.

    a bit off topic I guess.

  • There's a new report about those NX detachable controllers

  • NotaEuroGamer 26/08/2016

    Rumors and leaks in general are getting tiring and dull, and a lot of people are taking them as facts. Can't we just wait for stuff to be revealed then analyze the hell out of it? I guess not since these articles generate a lot of clicks. Reply +1
  • Nioh is a Dark Souls imitator with soul

  • NotaEuroGamer 26/08/2016

    I've played the beta for over 12 hours. I just really like it. It does take main ideas that are unique to Dark Souls. However, the game is unique enough that I definitely wouldn't call it an imitator or clone. It does a lot of things differently, and in a great way. I'm really looking forward to it now. Reply -1
  • NotaEuroGamer 26/08/2016

    @moosecake Having played the beta for 12 hours. It does take main ideas from Dark Souls. it's not being shoehorned. However, it's unique enough that I definitely wouldn't call it an imitator or clone. Also, other than being about Japanese culture and having Samurai characters, it's nothing like Onimusha. Reply +1

  • NotaEuroGamer 26/08/2016

    @RSX901 No, there's an overworld map and the locations are pretty different. Also missions turn into "twilight" (much harder) missions randomly after clearing them, and when searching to join another player you filter by mission. So it seems it's part of the design. It works really well though. Reply 0

    "the punishment for running out of juice (called "ki" in Nioh parlance) is very grim indeed as it locks the poor fool in place for a couple of seconds while he helplessly pants"

    In Alpha, yes. Not the case anymore in Beta. Now he only does that if he gets hit (or blocks a hit) while being out of stamina.

  • Nintendo NX is a portable console with detachable controllers

  • NotaEuroGamer 27/07/2016

    They should also offer a stationary only version with the same hardware, it would suit people who don't care about mobile gaming and don't want to spend the extra money on a feature they don't plan to use, and would also serve as a much cheaper alternative to the hybrid (no screen, battery... etc).

    Same hardware reasoning is obviously so they don't have to develop multiple versions of a game, and also so the stationary only device wouldn't cost much to produce as it's the same thing just missing the features that make it a hybrid.

    @ianmccabe1 Yeah, but we have an idea of how it will perform if this info is true. Reply +1
  • NotaEuroGamer 26/07/2016

    Seems really good as a 3DS successor. As powerful as you'd hope for a mobile device. Doubles as a home console. Runs even the biggest nintendo games like Zelda.

    As a home console though, compromised to hell and a huge disappointment.

    @X-Alucard Yeah, not sure what those people are thinking. It's not magic memory, it still needs to load, the loading bottleneck may not even be the storage type, but the rest of the hardware. Reply +1
  • Nintendo NX is powered by Nvidia Tegra technology

  • NotaEuroGamer 26/07/2016

    @djayjp Yeah, but if you look at it as a handheld, then begin as powerful as a Wii U is as much as you'd hope a handheld Nintendo device can deliver at this point. As a home console though, obviously not bringing much improvement over the Wii U is a huge disappointment. Reply +2
  • NotaEuroGamer 26/07/2016

    @isimioyekunlemarktai The Wii U wasn't powerful though, it didn't work mostly because it wasn't cheap despite not being powerful as it had the added gamepad that didn't add much (and at times was a hindrance) yet made it cost considerably more. Personally I think the Wii U would have done much better if it had a normal controller and was much cheaper. A powerful Nintendo home console is a somewhat unrealistic dream I know, but abandoning the whole home console idea and just providing a mostly portable console that can also plug into a TV will no doubt leave a lot of fans disappointed. I mean sure, it won't perform as badly as an Nvidia Shield for many reasons, but only hoping to get performance close to a 3 year old XB isn't something to get excited about, and frankly I think the people who are looking for 3rd party games are better off buying a PS4 that will likely have a price drop or a revision as Neo releases. Also for people who just don't care about mobile at all, this hybrid idea is just an inconvenience. Yet nothing here is official and is just leaks or rumors, I'm still hoping for the best, even as far as to think that there might be a home console only version of NX. However this news definitely leaves me less than optimistic or excited for the device that I was so looking forward to for so long. Reply +3

    @smelly Yeah, and take a look at what a non mobile chip can do. Reply +4
  • NotaEuroGamer 26/07/2016

    @smelly Well, it's possible to estimate. It's a mobile chip and the direction looks to be a mobile device you can also plug into a TV. As a mobile device it's powerful, as a home console it's a disappointment for anyone hoping it would be at least a bit more powerful than a 3 year old PS4. I mean, mobile chip and power don't belong in the same sentence. Anyway hopefully it can be at least close to a PS4. Reply -1

  • Spec Analysis: Nvidia's next-gen Titan X

  • NotaEuroGamer 22/07/2016

    @WilhelmvonOrmstein I see your point, but the scam bit comes from the fact that it's just a renaming of "reference" to "founders edition". Coupled with the price increase, It's as if they're trying to confuse people into thinking it's something better in some way. Rip-off though is more appropriate once a buyer realizes it's just a renaming of "reference" with a jacked up price. Reply +2
  • NotaEuroGamer 22/07/2016

    Yeah, "Founders Edition" is such a scam. Then you have them releasing a Titan X just a couple of months before a Ti with almost the same performance to trick people into buying it. Oh, I'm really starting to dislike Nvidia. Reply +4
  • NotaEuroGamer 22/07/2016

    Even though I'm well-off money wise, there is no way I'm buying a Titan ever again. It's just not worth the price at all, mostly because a much cheaper card with virtually the same performance is most likely around the corner, based on Nvidia's usual trend. Reply +5
  • Are 4K visuals really the best use for Project Scorpio and PlayStation Neo?

  • NotaEuroGamer 18/06/2016

    Dammit!Just focus on framerate and graphical enhancements! Leave 4K for the next cycle, people aren't ready for it anyway. Microsoft seems to really want to go 4k for some reason, based on their PR. Sony on the other hand isn't being specific, and based on the fact that PSVR is 1080p and that Neo is launching soon, I'm hoping that framerate and enhanced visuals is what they're after more than resolution. These new consoles are meant for the hardcore and enthusiast gamer anyway, who will definitely prefer better framerate before bumping up resolution. Graphics on something like God of War or Horizon are already pretty impressive, the only thing missing is 60fps. Reply +3
