  • 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 0

    @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

    @zoweewowee The beta does a pretty good job of explaining it during the tutorial mission at the dojo. Reply +1

    @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.

  • The PS4 Slim is real - confirmed

    @xXlive4eatingXx It was bought via a classifieds website. Reply 0

    @E-ROLE No, I hate leaks too. I want to be surprised and feel like a kid again. It's also pretty terrible for the people who make the stuff to steal their (mostly) glory moment. Reply 0

  • Meet the man Gabe Newell called an ass on Reddit

  • NotaEuroGamer 18/08/2016

    Wow, so much effort put into something not many will care about. I read the first quarter then stopped when I realized how long this goes on for and how little I cared. Plus "Gabe Newell, perhaps the most beloved video game developer on the planet", really now? Reply +1
  • Nvidia's Pascal-powered laptop chips are a true generational leap

  • NotaEuroGamer 18/08/2016

    It doesn't make sense to me that they're close to desktop performance. I mean, remove the power and size limitations, and you just get 10% or so more? Being more expensive brings a bit of sense back, but not enough. Reply 0

  • 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
  • NotaEuroGamer 26/07/2016

    Please tell me there is another NX that's just a home console!! I don't care about mobile gaming at all. Oh god. Reply +23
  • 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

    @I_Am_CatButler Well, it's also the diverse lineup and quality of games. But the clear difference in HW is a huge factor indeed. Reply +1
  • Dishonored Xbox 360 vs. PC Face-Off Video

  • NotaEuroGamer 13/10/2012

    This video is useless and whoever posted it knows it.

    The biggest difference between consoles and PC on most of the games out there is resolution and frame rate, neither of which can be shown in a video like this.
