Loading... hold tight!
@ecco So tell me, how CIV6 survives then...?
I am sorry but having to buy Witcher 3 without any dlc still around 40 eur when you get it for 20 with all DLC after year(s) of the launch is not good enough as an excuse.
If you develop a decent enough game, you will sell, regardless of platform and piracy. (X360 was thriving while having piracy all over the place remember...?)
About VR: The quality is really not there yet I am sorry. I stil remember trying on the Forte VFX1 Headset and trying to play Dark Forces and although it was a blast, it was NOT a mass market appeal gear. Still not, more than almost two decades later.
@ecco If the sample was me it would be Zero lol needing the Kinect for it to "work" was such a bad idea put me off the system.
I honestly don't know why they can't overclock/unlock the GPU a little though, unless that involves concerns about memory contention.
@ecco How many ppl bought the original PS4 or Slim to hook up to a new/newish 4k TV for HDR?
The prices are artifically inflated over Sony and MS unfortunately compared to the PC prices.
VR? Definitely not PS VR, I have a VIVE and a RIFT as well and both were disappointments... (ALthough The Solus Project could have been a very good showcase of what the technology might be good for)
@ecco Xbox One S was the first game console with HDR capabilities and HDR games. Sony added it later on to the PS4 but it was in no way the "catalyst".
MS has stated numerous times Scorpio will be backwards and forwards compatible with Xbox One. I'm sure they've taken everything into account.
Xbox One S? Hello?
Meanwhile, Edwin labelled Dead Rising 4 a "brainless, buggy open-world game that's forgotten the second you put down the pad". Yeeesh.
@ecco from what I've read Ico is one of the rare PS2 games that run at 240p (NTSC version). LCD screens quite often ignore the timing signal and treat this as 480i resulting in even worse image quality.
Shadow of the Colossus by contrast has the option to run at 480p.
If you are referring to the fact that there was no option in the game for progressive then that's true - there were no options - Ico *only* runs in progressive, no options either way.
@ecco I'm a high-end CRT collector/enthusiast/nut (have some of the best ever created, costing up to $12,000 when new) and I can attest that this game absolutely runs in progressive on an actual CRT screen. Any enthusiast can see the difference straight away.
Definitely progressive - they also confirm this in the video.
Ico had a surprisingly low resolution on the NTSC PS2 (512x224 progressive), so the PAL resolution bump looks a lot smoother and the 50Hz PAL flicker wasn't very noticeable on this game.
And so it begins... the first game for which a Pro is required. Sony really want us all to upgrade, but they've decided to use passive aggressive persuasion.
I came here for the sailing, what I got was motorboating. :(
The monsters will help you.
Wait, do the androids have horses, or what?
Pretty sure packaged DLC codes are just a tactic by publishers to make a part of the game expendable to diminish resale value
That is true, but let's assume for one minute that Marlene was fully virtuous and that the cure would deff have worked.
Nevertheless the Winter Sale is usually considerable, so perhaps save money by foregoing Christmas presents for your children, you monster.
And gameplay and AI improvements have been replaced by loot, repetition, tension of higher difficulty levels.....
The only one benefitting are the retail stores with their huge mark-ups on second hand copies (and A and B, obviously, because they will be able to play more games in total), but it's a fallacy that trading in will help the market.
It's no coincidence that everyone is pushing digital, because in all likelihood, A and B will spend more than they want if there are no trading in/second hand copies at all, respectively the publishers want to have what is currently the mark-up of second hand copies for themselves.
Is it just me or does the sketch show a spoiler as catweagle looks dead to me with boy mourning him?
I may be wrong of course
On top of all this, unpatched games on the Scorpio will probably perform way better, with none of this "base mode" bullshit
Regular discounts, story DLC and a constant stream of new characters have failed to ignite interest.
The game's hardcore fans have even rallied to organise a Battleborn Day Steam event to help grow the game's community, but it left little lasting impression.
But, for £3.85 - can you go far wrong?
One word of warning, however. Two months ago Kotaku posted word that Gearbox was quietly working on a free-to-play version of the game - an assertion Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford initially appeared to discount, before detailing a free to play "trial version".
But even this, which will come with limited features but which can be expanded through purchasing other bits and pieces, may end up being more expensive than this offer for a boxed version.
Be warned, though. The script takes the worst of Borderlands' self-referential humour and vomits it at you relentlessly, offering a lower gag hit rate than Joe Pasquale and an apparently genuine belief that repeating the same soundbite 50 times in a single boss fight will enhance the experience.
@ecco The problem with Demon's Souls' World Tendency was that it almost always just stayed stuck in the middle, maybe edging towards White World Tendency.
Never forget what poor quality they made the Arkham Knight and Dragon Age Inquisition CE's.
The dummy finger is the most amusing bit of the whole thing as it's a reference to an item in the game's demo that does nothing.
