    Reiza Studios own the Senna license. They're making a sim based around that.
    Don't know who Reiza are?
    They make what is regarded as the best sim on pc. Game Stock Car Racing.

    Tiff Needel reviewed Forza. He really didn't like it at all. His main concern was the physic model was all wrong making the car do the opposite of how it behaves in reality.

  • Mass Effect 3 Demos Analysed

  • T3TSUO 17/02/2012

    DF trying to dissuade PS3 sales? Everything you read or see on this site illustrates 360 as the primary platform of choice from adverts to boxart. 360 everywhere. They won't review the PS3 version, they should if they are so obviously different and they certainly won't review the PC version which should take precedence in my view.

    I remember ME2 Demo on PS3 had awful tearing issues that was fixed upon release as the demo was based on old code as is obviously the case here. Still it's a reason for DF\EG to report on "trash" news.
    What is more they comment on this in the final third but every sensationalist journo knows damage has been done, even by the time the headline is read seeds negative views towards PS3 as a buyers choice.
    Truly awful site.

  • Mass Effect 3 Preview: The Good Shepard?

  • T3TSUO 03/02/2012

    Got a bit fed up with Mass Effect when it dawned on me it's more or less a direct copy of Babylon 5, down to the characters, ships, settings and even the story. There is nothing in Mass Effect I cannot directly relate to B5.
    Nothing wrong with that as I love Babylon 5 just hoped for a fresh take on Sci-Fi and certainly a fresher story.

  • Bethesda suspends Doom 4 - rumour

  • T3TSUO 21/10/2011

    Don't talk shit.

    Doom 4 is not or will not be postponed or abandoned.There was nothing wrong with Rage. It's my favourite game this year. Enjoying it immensely. So Bethesda just throws development money down the drain do they. Besides id software really doesn't need them.

    Rage wasn't Duke Nukem you know?

    If you bought it thinking it was open world then maybe you should have read up on the game. Post apocalyptic doesn't automatically qualify it as open world aka Fallout.

    If you had graphic problems then hey blame ATI\AMD. They told Carmack that was as good as the drivers get. Through out ATI's history they have been notoriously bad at opengl.Something I bet people who owned one haven't taken into account as fewer opengl games are released these days but they do and are still in development. No doubt Doom 4 will be opengl too.

    A patch was released the day after the European launch to fix issues with Nvidia's BETA drivers so high end cards that need to use them can run no issues.

    ATI have had to release three drivers in a month to fix issues. If you still have issues then switch to a card that does opengl proper if that desperate to play it.

    Typical sensationalism Euro-gamer headlines.

    I've not played a better standard shooter all year.

  • Tech Analysis: Forza Motorsport 4

  • T3TSUO 18/10/2011

    It's not about graphics, it's about physics and being an iracing fan I can see GT5 is the clear winner. Forza looks pretty as does GT5 to a degree but it's easy to see GT5 is using up more cycles on a superior car handling and physic model.



    *edit* on closer analysis. I have to question why Forza exhibits at total lack of front tyre grip yet under-steers no matter what car is driven? that shouldn't happen and then goes into snap over-steer. The tyres should "unload" GT5 is the only other sim besides iracing to do this.

    Forza spent huge portions of the race with 2 tyres on grass at speed with no penalty in grip. That definitely shouldn't happen. Again GT5 gets it right suggesting tyre to road simulation not emulation.

  • Face-Off: Crysis

  • T3TSUO 15/10/2011

    Crysis on console isn't that great. They've used far too much bloom to mask the lack of foliage, and foliage with physical properties mind, grass, trees have been reduced as has the ocean animations and what goes on under it. Wild life has been toned down.

    Volumetric clouds are gone. Same for soft shadows. Particles reduced.

    Aliens have had a polygon reduction.

    It's a good stab but to my eye it's pretty poor. Akin to farcry on xbox1 vs farcry pc.

    Good try but I know what I'd rather play.

    No mention that it also happens to be a terrible PC port. Yes I did say port, from them there id Software.

    Bethesda forums are literally raging.

    Main complaints are you need top, top PC hardware for anything approaching playable frame-rates and there are zero graphic options including basics such as v-sync.

    PC has low resolution textures and they "pop in" like the unreal engine used to do.

    PS3 for me then.

  • T3TSUO 03/10/2011

    Big Plus for Rage. Amazing graphically and sonically. Great level design that hints at open world. Great feel to the weapons. Gameplay that has a lot more depth than find the biggest gun. Huge amount of gadgets to build.

    Multiplayer that will appeal to those that love Twisted Metal (alot then)

    Will buy Crysis just to see it on my living room TV.

    Times are tough and we do what we can to play the games you make. Should be thankful of the exposure. Besides these companies are already charging 60+ pounds a game when you factor in the download content that should have been in there in the first place.

    If screen tear is to kick in it must only do it on the real taxing areas.

    If EA can take the trouble with console parity and not only that but release the game on the same day as Killzone 3 just goes to show the engine is too old now and it shows up lazy developers.

    Epic will be rewarded with low sales on ps3 on both those counts.

    Now this is exactly the sort of thing I'm getting at. Just these type of articles lead to idiots with a keyboard typing drivel like this.

    If he's entitled to his opinions then so am am I as are you. Shouting someone down or in Richards case favouring one console over another to promote a site is just wrong.

    I take it the guy just sat there with both versions running, notepad and pen in hand looking at the PS3 version saying "that's wrong" and "that bit's wrong"

    Why?

    Because he favours the original xbox version that's why.

    It's plain to see in his style of writing. Anybody with any sense of intelligence can see it.

    Here's the kicker people. It's the Mass Effect 3 engine so it's bound to be different. Maybe features have been dropped to get Mass Effect 3 working.

    You see this is why Richard is classed amongst most as a bit of a poor journalist.

    You see what he fails to comprehend is if Bioware has seen fit to change things, be it from the PC or Xbox version then that is their interpretation of "definitive".

    If an artist paints a picture, completes it but 6 months later returns to said picture and thinks to change what he or she is not happy with. Once complete said artist would describe the work as "definitive"

    Just because it's different to the xbox version does not mean the PS3 is struggling and "compromises" have had to be made.

    Comments like those lead to flamebait. Totally unprofessional journolism.



    definitive

    de·fin·i·tive

    1.

    most reliable or complete, as of a text, author, criticism, study, or the like: the definitive biography of Andrew Jackson.

    2.

    serving to define, fix, or specify definitely: to clarify with a definitive statement.

    3.

    having its fixed and final form; providing a solution or final answer; satisfying all criteria: the definitive treatment for an infection; a definitive answer to a dilemma.



    I played the demo last night and though I have only the PC as a reference, the PS3 looked great. Even better once I dropped film grain.

    Wasn't too keen on the stutter in some cut-scenes but I can imagine this could and will be fixed. Nobody knows when this demo was put together before gold master and I'm sure the final could be easily patched knowing Unreal architecture.



    Now Richard, if the only way you can get traffic through you're site is to annoy and flamebait the pubic in order to pay the bills I suggest stop and try a bit more thought out concise journalism.

    Considering you used to work on a Playstation magazine I do remember some of the bias you had towards that platform.

    Enough is enough now. You know what gets peoples backs up in video game circles and it's getting childish.

  • PlayStation 3 Mass Effect 2 release date

  • T3TSUO 10/12/2010

    For the last time 360 owners.

    Mass Effect 2 is not or was not ever a 360 exclusive. It was available on PC, a perfectly viable gaming platform from launch. Mass Effect 1 wasn't even an exclusive.

    Gears of War 2 is an exclusive. Halo 3 is an exclusive.

    Exclusive means



    ex·clu·sive

    (k-sklsv)

    adj.

    1. Excluding or tending to exclude: exclusive barriers.

    2. Not allowing something else; incompatible: mutually exclusive conditions.

    3. Not divided or shared with others: exclusive publishing rights.

    4. Not accompanied by others; single or sole: your exclusive function.

    5. Complete; undivided: gained their exclusive attention.

    6. Not including the specified extremes or limits, but only the area between them: 20-25, exclusive; that is, 21, 22, 23 and 24.

    7. Excluding some or most, as from membership or participation: an exclusive club.

    8. Catering to a wealthy clientele; expensive: exclusive shops.

    9. Linguistics Of, relating to, or being a first person plural pronoun that excludes the addressee, such as we in the sentence Chris and I will be in town tomorrow, so we can stop by your office.

    n.

    1. A news item initially released to only one publication or broadcaster.

    2. An exclusive right or privilege, as to market a product.



    The last comment is apt to my point.

    The 360 has actually got very very little in the way of exclusives.

    As far as I'm concerned they are both the same. Both drop frames dependant on what is happening.

    Been saying it for a while now and people are finally taking note. Unreal Engine needs to go away now. It's just too convenient to grab the engine cheap, slap it on Xbox and do a quick port over to the other systems without regard to the other systems strengths. PS3 and PC and do a damn site better than the Unreal Engine's allow.

    What I'm annoyed at is EA swore this MOH title would lead on PS3. I very much doubt it has.

    Of course I'm going off a site that just took a look at Force Unleashed 2 and was too lazy to play till the end of the PS3 demo or how else do they explain they missed the missing wet shaders? Poor guy is soaking wet through by the AT-ST portion of the game.

    Absolutely wrong again. PC may well sell games on DVD BUT and I say BUT, it's a heavily compressed disc. Most games come on 2 DVD's as standard these days and once installed will amount to well over 10 gig.Does that make sense to you.

    You have to use an uncompressed file structure on a 360 DVD and textures take up most of that space.

    You think a texture has to pass through ram every time?

    Well how do you account Uncharted textures, all streamed and never EVER a loading screen.........ever.

    On my PC Aliens v Predator is over 18 gig. What size is the single DVD xbox game then? The PS3 could match the PC version but knoooowww they couldn't be bothered or more likely lacked the talent.

    I have noticed they do choose their face-off's to favour one system over the other. Some games they have to do. Well actually they don't. I still don't see a point in any of these face off's other than to promote one console over another.

    We all know when a game is made using the unreal engine it will look and run better on the 360. It's nothing to do with gpu\cpu prowess at all. The real question surely has to be if the unreal engine was made to take advantage of one systems architecture then why not do the same for the PS3. Simple answer is they can't. Why? Because it would have to be severely hampered in order to translate over to the DVD based 360. I'd wager 360 owners would love games made using the Uncharted or God of War engine but it wouldn't look the same. Crushing down a 40 gig game to fit on a single cheap dual layered DVD wouldn't bode well. Heck lok what happened for Final Fantasy.

    So what we get is instead of one development team taking advantage of one system and another the other, we get quick and easy ports. Unreal engine is cheap, very easy to program for (you could do it even)

    Gamers are losing out here not just PS3 owners. Funny thing is even PC owners are starting to lose out. PC games used to bring the pinnacle of graphical umpf to the table now we just get the Xbox game with forced AA and AF. Heck most of the time it's the said crusty Unreal engine that any PC can handle aplomb.

    Fact is Xbox is killing gaming. It's made developers lazy and greedy. And you all thought it was the Wii that was killing gaming.

    Great thing is Xbox is a dead duck. They'll try to go download only (what option do they have?) with the next system and it just won't work.

  • T3TSUO 02/09/2010

    Love this!

    Went to PC World this aft. Had a PS3 3D setup running Motorstorm 3D on a 40" Samsung. My God it was amazing. As amazing as when I first saw Avatar 3D. What really struck me was how smooth it was and yet I couldn't see any loss of detail. Even staff were enthusing how awesome it was. Was something else for sure. Just goes to show how much power that box really has and how dev's will just shove out anything that is "reasonable" after the walk in the park programming on a 360. Bit of patience and skill and we could see a huge leap in gaming. As big as when 3D accelerators first arrived.



    Then I popped in Game. They'd just finished setting up a 360 Kinect cabinet. Had a go as did staff. We all agreed. We felt like right morons waving and flapping our arms about.. Was really poor.

    Thing what Microsoft forget when they rob other's ideas is the Wii is aimed at a younger audience, the 360 is aimed at teens to early twenty. They are not going to touch this at all. Sony have it right by going after the sport and fps market.



    So anybody that says the PS3 is under powered, I'll just point them toward a big 3D setup and let them decide.

    Don't believe a word these guys print.

    Not once was the extra sound quality of the PS3 brought into the equation.

    Not once was the vastly superior controller mentioned in the SSF4 review or that it's an arcade port and there for more accurate.

    It's supposed to measure which game is best to buy "if" you own both consoles (yeah right) It just proves one thing that you're more interested in promoting the 360's graphical capabilities over the PS3 because A, you've either been paid todo so or B, realize by winding up a fraction of you're audience produces far more traffic on you're site.

    All this talk of more screen tear or a little less AA when this lot went crazy over their FF13 analysis. If you're fine with Alan Wake running at a Wii matching 540p then these Face Off's are mute and pointless.
