    I already have The Swapper. What I want to know is should I get this or the stupidly named The Last Tinker: City of Colours which came out today? Both seem to have had very mixed receptions. Reply 0
  • Diablo 3 on console: when is 60fps not really 60fps?

  • SteveV 17/08/2014

    When is the launch day patch out? Do we have to actually wait until launch day or will it go live before that? I only ask because I've already got the Xbox One version. It came early in the post yesterday. Reply 0

  • Sniper Elite 3 review

  • SteveV 26/06/2014

    @chrisno21 lol, just read that review. Well, I say read it but I stopped reading it when the guy said the Call of Duty mission "All Ghillied Up" was a better sniper GAME than the whole of Sniper Elite 3. And then I noticed he went on to rant about things he liked better in other games such as Medal of Honour Rising Sun and the new Wolfenstein.

    I mean really....? He really expects me to take anything he says seriously when he comes out with things like that. Just..... lol.

    @PearOfAnguish They did it in V2 so I would assume you can still incapacitate them and watch them call for their buddy then shoot their buddy as well. I'd be miffed if it isn't in this. Reply +2

    @Retro_ For the sake of saving a few quid you coulda pre-ordered it from Simply Games for 37.85 and you may have even had it today ya know. Plus you'd be able to trade it in unlike the US version. Reply +1

    @DanWhitehead Ah ok, cool. Cheers. That's good to hear. Roll on tomorrow. Although no doubt I'll get sidetracked taking screenshots of nut shots anyway. Reply +2
  • SteveV 26/06/2014

    Eight missions or not, how long does it take to play through first time is what I'd like to know?

    Obviously I'll play through it multiple times to tackle different strategies but that doesn't mean I want the initial playthrough to be over in 5 or 6 hours. Especially considering I'll be playing it on the hardest difficulty with no wind assistance, reticle assistance etc whatsoever from the get go...

    Ahhhh yes, good to see the negative votes on my previous post asking about a Digital Foundry Head to Head so I can decide which version to get. Can always rely on members of this place for utterly pointless negs... Reply 0
  • SteveV 20/06/2014

    Any ETA on a Digital Foundry Head to Head? I really need to decide whether to get the Xbox One or PS4 version. And time is running out. Reply -1

  • Confirmed: Watch Dogs PS4 900p, Xbox One 792p, both 30fps

  • SteveV 14/05/2014

    I can deal with 900p but it had better be a solid 30fps after all this and it had better have vsync enabled. Reply 0
  • Child of Light review

  • SteveV 01/05/2014

    Can we up the difficulty past Hard in New Game Plus then? I'm playing through it on Hard my first time through. If there's nothing harder than Hard for NG+ then what's the point. Reply 0

  • SteveV 29/04/2014

    The game succeeds principally thanks to its core spine of play and execution.

    Surprisingly, not because of Jessica Chobots story.

  • Newspaper report linking stabbing of Leeds teacher to Dark Souls disputed

  • SteveV 29/04/2014

    Nothing to do with the fact that he had been bullied and had depression and mental health problems. It's clearly Dark Souls 2 fault. He's clearly enraged at the blacksmith dwarf, McFuck, that keeps muttering on about some god damn embers. Reply +2

  • Grid Autosport is the Codemasters racing game you've been waiting for

  • SteveV 22/04/2014

    No Xbox One or PS4 version huh. Well, that's another sale to a long time fan lost out on. Again. I'm not gonna bother with it on the 360 or PS3 when I can play Forza 5 on the Xbox.

    Quite why they're not releasing it on next gen though I don't know, especially considering the coming F1 2014 will run at 60fps on next gen.

    Your loss Codemasters.

    Which is also unfinished and has no multi-player.

  • SteveV 16/04/2014

    Good of them to screw us over by not mentioning there's no online multi-player. At Not until later in the year. Despite the back of the box saying local and online multi-player for 1-4 people.

    Shouldn't have released it in this unfinished state.

  • inFamous: Second Son review

  • SteveV 20/03/2014

    And Margaret Thatcher didn't help much. But anyway, disabled people and the mining industry aside, I'm interested to know how big the city is in Second Son. Anyone know? Bigger than the last one? Same size? Reply 0

  • SteveV 20/03/2014

    Hmmmm. I don't like where it says The collectables and side missions all contribute to reclaiming districts from the DUP, which organises them into chunks and structures the reward usefully, and they've been judiciously pruned .

    Pruned how exactly? Is there less to do in this than the previous games then? Less collectibles etc etc???

    That would not please me.

  • Thief review

  • SteveV 24/02/2014

    I gonna grab it anyway. I can get it for 36 on the PS4 from shopto. And my PS4 is hardly creaking under the pressure of playing the vast amount of games that are out for it... Reply +1
  • SteveV 24/02/2014

    @Suarez07 Doesn't really make much sense that though. Thief isn't the type of game that will appeal to the mass market anyway. They haven't increased the potential sales the way they have done it. Really, the mass market/casual general public is still going to see it as "playing as some hooded guy running around an olde world setting doing some stealing in missions". And they'll either fancy it or they wont. Reply +1
  • SteveV 24/02/2014

    @zubnut Yeah. It's a piss poor review really concerning the technical front. Reply -3
  • SteveV 24/02/2014

    I'm still no wiser which version to get if I do get it. X1 or PS4? Does the frame rate really struggle in the PS4 version? If so then I'd rather have the X1 version at 900p running smoother. Reply +2

    I've been playing the beta and to be thoroughly honest I've found the game oh so meh. I can honestly take it or leave it. I'll actually probably leave it and maybe have a look at it further down the line for cheap cheap cheap. Reply -3
  • Does the 13GB Dead Rising 3 patch boost performance?

  • SteveV 13/02/2014

    @PHUMBz Except it can't, not without downgrading the graphics and still dropping some frames. Also single player is still locked to 30fps. Reply 0
  • Next-Gen Face-Off: Tomb Raider Definitive Edition

  • SteveV 29/01/2014

    That said, as we pointed out in the performance analysis earlier this week, we would have liked an optional 30fps cap in the display settings to eliminate the judder during the frame-rate fluctuations and keep absolute consistency with controller response throughout.

    F'in amen to that! Personally I have the choice of being able to buy and play either version and so I'm going for the PS4 version here. I would however prefer a rock solid 30fps over 60fps with dips of 40-50fps.

    They really should give us a damn optional 30fps cap in display settings.

  • PS4 Assassin's Creed 4 1080p patch analysed in-depth

  • SteveV 28/11/2013

    @ElektroDragon The shimmering was one of the first things I noticed. All over the damn foliage when it's moving. Very distracting indeed. Xbox One version here. But yeah, 360 version didn't have the issue. I've got both the 360 and Xbox One versions now. I'm highly tempted to get the PS4 version as well but to be quite honest, if the PS4 version also has the shimmering then I may as well stick with the Xbox One version. Which incidentally still looks fantastic, 900p upscaled to 1080p or not.

    As for jaggies, I've never seen anything like the jaggies on the characters leg in the pre-patch PS4 version in that comparison picture further up this topic. I certainly haven't seen jaggies like that in the Xbox One version.

  • Forza Motorsport 5 review

  • SteveV 20/11/2013

    Whilst it has obviously had content cut to make it a launch title, you've focused on that too much with this review. How about reviewing the actual game that's there? If it looks, sounds, and plays better than ever before, so even though it's got less content, it's got new content, and more exquisite detail in the content, then surely it's worth an 8/10? People can moan about Maple Valley not being there now but personally I'm sick to the back teeth of that damn track. I'm glad it's gone. The only real issue I have with the track list is the lack of Nordschleife. Rumour has it that's coming as DLC. Shite because it had to be cut to make the game launch but it'll be great when it's here.

    So still the best looking, sounding, and playing sim on console and will be even after GT6 arrives. Obviously I'm getting GT6 but that's gonna be another irritation anyway with all it's standard cars over premium cars and hundreds of duplicate cars etc.

    So, is the patch out on launch day? Anybody know? I'm picking my X1 up tomorrow along with Forza 5. Shopto are delivering my PS4 next week. However I wont be buying this for either of them if they don't fix this judder issue soon. Reply +1
  • SteveV 19/11/2013

    When is the patch out to address the judder issue? I was considering grabbing this at launch for X1 but I'm not going to bother if it has this judder issue. Unless the patch is out at launch?? Reply -2
  • Sony issues PS4 "blinking blue light" advice as customers report DOA consoles

  • SteveV 18/11/2013

    lol I don't why someone has voted that post down. It's not my fault the tech support guy suggested checking my HDMI cable was plugged into the TV properly when it was a worn out laser in the dvd drive not reading discs... Reply +1
  • SteveV 18/11/2013

    @tidy-spidey I've always found the MS "tech support" utterly useless. I'll never forget the time the guy went down his checklist, telling me to check the HDMI cable was properly connected to the TV when the problem I had was with the dvd drive not reading discs. Reply +1

    @minleg I could believe it. I've had five 360 replacements myself. Reply +4
  • SteveV 18/11/2013

    lol. So....

    Here are the four possible causes:

    TV compatibility (ah that old chestnut, blame it on someone else...)
    Issues with PS4 power supply
    Issues with PS4 hard drive
    Issues with other PS4 hardware


    Er, ok, so basically anything could be the cause of the problem. they don't have a clue or do and aint saying. Golden nugget of info there Sony. And TV compatibility....? lol f*** off.

    So what can you do about it?

    Sony suggests updating the firmware on your TV, turning the console off and checking the power and HDMI connectors for damage. It also suggests checking the hard drive to make sure it's properly seated in the HDD bay.

    If all that fails, you can try booting your PS4 into safe mode. This changes the resolution to 480p and allows you to update the system software, restore default settings and restart the system. You can also rebuild the database and initialise the PS4 (this deletes all user data and restores the PS4 to as if it just came out of the box).


    Back to the TV thing again there huh. Yeah....

    Check everything is plugged in properly. Yep, invaluable advice that. Thanks again.

    And then the icing on the cake, safe mode, default settings, or rebuild the database on your brand new PS4 that's practically just come out of the box.

    Seriously Sony?

  • Digital Foundry vs. Dead Rising 3

  • SteveV 12/11/2013

    @alexbulluk tbh though the more power some devs get the more ambitious they get. I'm not convinced they would even have had it running smoothly with more power or on the PS4... Reply -3
  • SteveV 12/11/2013

    @robertbiskup I don't see the point of this statement. The devs of DR3 haven't had to deal with any hardware differences. They've solely been working with the X1 for DR3. Reply +4
  • SteveV 12/11/2013

    @alexbulluk Well that's another thing. DR2 ran like crap. This is clearly down to the devs rather than the hardware. They just aren't very good at making the game run smoothly. Reply 0
