    @manowar71 And let's not forget about the "rules". Silly rules that will get you banned.

    "Don't shoot a rocket at people". "Don't spray bullets"

    I say good riddance! Get that crap out of here...it's 2015 for crying out loud.

    Confusing messages here. It was first stated it was only for consoles. And now suddenly it's for PC also?

    I don't mind as I find it something that should be in the past. I want streamlined fast access to gameplay. So I hope it's gone on both console and PC.

    I found the environments to be incredible real life. The music was incredible and the story telling was interesting and well acted. But I could not ignore the bad AA,textures and the framerate that jumped all over the place.

    It sadly took me completely out of the immersion.

  • Everybody's Gone to the Rapture review

  • _LarZen_ 12/08/2015

    Been playing for a couple of hours now and it's starting to grow on me. But I cant be the only one who is a little bothered by the bad AA,low res textures and framerate that must be in the 20ish area at times?

    EDIT: It's not like I'm trolling. The graphical issues I mention are real. Disagreeing and downvoting because of that is just acting like a fanboy who cant accept the game could on a technical level could be better. It's a plastic box, not your girlfriend. You don't have to defend it's honor.

    Fore some this is a plastic gimmick that have no value. For others it's a collectors item they have wished they had on display for years and years.

    I placed an order and was super excited that I would be getting one. Now it remains to be seen if they have enough for everyone who have pre-ordered....

  • Dishonored: Definitive Edition is half-off if you own the original

  • _LarZen_ 22/07/2015

    I think this is great and I don't get why some complain so much about versions like this. It's great for people who did not get the chance to play it on the last gen of consoles.

    I've had it in my Steam library since it came out. Not got a chance to play it yet... And I'm guessing I'm not alone in having a backlog long and shameful.

    So why shouldn't console gamers have the option at least to play some of the better games on their new consoles if they so should want to?

    I cant recall so much complaining about something that is actually good news before. If people don't like how things work on consoles they should start thinking about changing platform.

    That said it don't take a genius to understand why things are as they are with consoles and releases like this.

  • The re-engineering of Ethan Carter

  • _LarZen_ 22/07/2015

    It's really to bad it couldn't run in a stable 60 fps. It's all over the place and not something I could enjoy at all. With this type of game with so much love to details in the world. Anything but 60 fps is acceptable in my opinion.

    You lose so much visual information when you go lower. And jumping from 35-60 fps just makes you even more aware of the issue. Good thing they are going to implement a 30 fps lock. It should be standard so that people that knows what they are doing can turn it of under options if they so like.

    But 30 fps is better then no game at all. I'm just glad PS4 owners can play this game. I love it. And I hope the UE4 version comes soon for PC.

    The Astronauts rock!

  • Uncharted 2's PS4 teaser leaves us hungry for more

  • _LarZen_ 21/07/2015

    @geordiek I agree. But there is one more factor that people must have in mind. And that's that this is a console. It's not like a PC where you can mostly play any game you have played regardless of year you bought it.

    But hopefully now that the PS4 is a X86 based system and not with a Cell CPU. We can have proper backwards compatibility with the PS5 and so on..

  • Uncharted 4 pushes PS4 tech to the next level

  • _LarZen_ 19/07/2015

    The PS4 has better hardware. But most importantly they have better first party developers.

    Hence why we see console games that looks so much better on the PS4.

    This is a great game and I enjoyed it allot on PC. I'm really glad that these type of games finds its way to PS4 among to many action oriented games.

    So if you are a PS4 gamer and like variety and want to unravel a mystery. Then please give this game a go.

    Coming from the PC version and I think the PS4 version is quite good. Sure it could get a bump in the gfx department and 60fps would be nice. But it's still highly enjoyable I think.

    I'm surprised that playing a mmorpg with a controller could work so good. I'm playing just as good/bad as on PC. And the addition of proximity voice chat opened up a whole new experience. Sure you have people with horrible microphones and kids. Those are easily muted.

    Was out fishing and a orc woman came up to me and started talking. First we role played a little but came out of that and talked for a while as the sun went down. A moment replaced by text from a random player with a voice and a presence.

    Tiny moments that will stick with you for a while.

    I have never understood the complaints for the game. But then again I am comparing it to other mmorpg games and not a rpg game. That said, there are better mmorpg games out there. But ESO is in my opinion on the list of the good ones.

    @Bertie It's not rambling if it makes sense. And you make perfect sense :)

    Could be we get a VR game that will do for VR what World of Warcraft did for the mmorpg genera?

    That's the only thing I can imagine would make an impact like World of Warcraft did back in 2004.

    I dunno..time will tell I guess.

  • Twitch bans streaming of ESRB Adults Only-rated games

  • _LarZen_ 28/05/2015

    @jcaspian I love GTA5. But my point is that when Twitch wants to play the moral high ground card. They have a heck of a lot to censor and moderating to do then just ban all AO rated games.

    There are so many sick and perverted things you can do in GTA5 that it makes Hatred stand out as a joke to the entire genera.

    And GTA5 is just one example.

    And don't get me wrong. I do not want censor. I want children to be as safe as possible when watching Twitch. But I also want adults to be adults and make up their own minds on what they want to watch or not. Not having Twitch playing mom and dad.

    Some kind of age verification system and warning about adult content is what Twitch needs. Not stereotype American censor and moderation.

  • _LarZen_ 28/05/2015

    @LordDemigod Of course. And it's in their right to do so. But it just comes of as so incredible hippocratic when there is content streamed that is basically much much worse but is allowed because the developers managed to slip under the AO rating. Reply +1
  • _LarZen_ 28/05/2015

    @craigy Basically this. We all know by now that GTA5 should have been an Adults Only game.

    And I watched Hatred today. It's nothing compared to GTA5.
    Reply +6
  • _LarZen_ 28/05/2015

    @LordDemigod Point is that Twitch is doing this to "protect" it's viewers. And by that logic dictates they are thinking about their younger audience.

    Adults don't need that kind of supervision. Were adults. At last in the country I live in.

  • _LarZen_ 28/05/2015

    For being an "welcoming, inclusive community" they are sure making it hard.

    You know something is wrong when Twitch thinks it's OK for children to watch guts getting pulled out from the mouth. And bodies getting ripped in parts in Mortal Kombat.
    Or picking up a prostitute in GTA5. Get a blowjob and have her ride you. For so to beat her to a bloody pulp...

    That is what Twitch thinks is an "safe, welcoming, inclusive community platform where everyone can feel comfortable and have fun"

    Don't get me wrong. I'm an adult. I find this funny and hilarious on a morbid level.

    But when Twitch want's to play the censor card to "protect" it's viewers. And at the same time almost everything streamed is at a time or a other something so violent and horrible. It just makes me wonder if the people in charge at Twitch are mentally sound?

    Get an age verification system in place. Possible by Visa confirmation. And get violent games away from children. Mortal Kombat and GTA5 being two of them. But we all know that wont happen. Why? Because Twitch loves it's $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    And to end it. I actually watched Hatred today! On Hitbox. Some people have received early copies and are playing. And Hitbox say's it's OK as long as you mark your channel for 18+ only.

    So if you like streaming. Or watching people stream. And don't like people to say what you can and can't watch. Move your butt out from Twitch and try out Hitbox?

  • The Witcher 3 Xbox One patch set to add 30fps frame-rate cap

    @Malacath If anything I'm a fan of facts.

    And you are taking it out of context. I did not write that it's clearer in motion.

    And I quote myself "And slowing down and taking a look around the beautiful landscape is quite different on the PS4 and XBO.

    Who would want to see a blurry scenery on XBO if they have the option to see clearly on PS4?"

    Blurry like these pictures http://imgur.com/a/g9PzO

    @Suarez07 I guess it can be fairly negligible if you play on a smaller TV. Personally I change between a 27" monitor and a 65" TV. So for me these negligible differences are not so negligible.

    On the monitor everything is closer so I see the differences faster. On the 65" stretching a 900p image over a 1080p panel at 65" shows every little negligible difference clear as the day is bright.

  • _LarZen_ 27/05/2015

    @SeeNoWeevil But still it's delivering a much much more detailed image in motion. It's not even comparable to 30fps at all. And let's not forget about how much more responsive gameplay is...

    The consoles get's blurry in motion because of 30fps. But mostly in horizontal movements. When going forward you see things more clearly. And slowing down and taking a look around the beautiful landscape is quite different on the PS4 and XBO.

    Who would want to see a blurry scenery on XBO if they have the option to see clearly on PS4?

    But CD PROJEKT RED can't do magic. Even if we at times think they can looking at what they have made. The consoles have it's limitations. And especially the XBO is holding the visuals back...

    @McGooch If graphics is a priority and you can pick what console platform to get The Witcher 3 or any game for that matter. The PS4 is the way to go. It has the upper hand when it comes to graphic performance.

    And no amount of firmware updates can fix that on the XBO.

    That said..if you have gotten the taste for graphics and especially 60fps. Start looking into getting a PC. It's a gamechanger :)

  • _LarZen_ 27/05/2015

    @Adam-802 In motion it's hard to see yes. Especially when moving the camera horizontal. This is because 30fps makes everything blurry in motion.

    But you will notice it if you had the PS4 and XBO version side by side. The PS4 version is clearly sharper.

    Thankfully I can get it around 60fps on my PC so I don't loose image clarity when moving around :)

  • What can we learn from The Witcher 3 "downgrade" fiasco?

  • _LarZen_ 27/05/2015

    I understand why the graphics have changed. And I have no issue with the game as it's today. I find it to be one of the best looking RPG games I have ever played.

    But just imagine if something like this was done with a movie. The trailer showing of something that just is not there when people are going to the cinema. People would demand their money back and the ramifications would be big.

    So why is it that the gaming industry again and again are getting away with it?
