    IT WAS THE GENERAL FEELING OF ABSENCE OF JUSTICE TOWARDS POLITICIANS AND THEIR BIG FRIENDS, JUST LIKE WITH PUTIN RIGHT NOW (and Trump, to a much lower degree, because the USA is NOT Russia), THAT LED US HERE! AND IT WAS FREEEDOM OF SPEECH THAT PREVENTED US FROM GOING THE NEXT LEVEL AND BECOMING THE NEXT VENEZUELA!
    Exactly. The absence of justice for murderous politicians like Bush, Blair, Howard et al. They are far worse than Putin.

    Like I said, if you try to make any assumption over Brazil right now, you're gonna get it wrong. Just know that FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS ONE OF THE FEW PUBLIC ASSETS WE HAVE HERE, AS WELL AS A PART OF THE JUDICIARY WHO WANTS TO ACTUALLY MAKE JUSTICE IN THE UPPER ECHELONS OF POWER SINCE 2012-2013 (google judges Moro and Bretas)! AND YOU SOUND LIKE EVERY AVERAGE ASSHOLE OF DESPOTS' CORRUPT FRIENDS, OF WHICH WE STILL HAVE PLENTY HERE!
    Assumptions about Brazil? LOL. Just facts buddy. You can turn a blind eye to what is happening in your country and claim "freedom of speech trumps all", but don't expect anyone else to swallow that fiction.

    THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE ARRESTED OR KILLED EVERY YEAR FOR SHOUTING AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT IN COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA, RUSSIA, NORTH KOREA, SYRIA, VENEZUELA, ETC!
    I am guessing you have figures for each of these countries rather than guessing right? I suggest you look at how many people US have killed directly or indirectly over the last 5 or so decades. Hell just the last 16 years.

    I can't fathom one even beginning to compare the degree of freedom in those countries with the one in the FREE WORLD, a term used by GARRY KASPAROV that refers to places like the USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Chile, UK and your own New Zealand!
    You have to be completely blind, or insanely hypocrate, to compare a citizen's freedom in China or Russia with the one in the USA, Australia or NZ! You'd have to be fucking mad to make that statement!
    You are the one comparing the freedom of citizens. I was talking about arresting politicians - your original topic. If you feel Putin deserves to be jailed, than there are even more reasons for Blair, Bush and Howard to go to the war crimes tribunal too.

    I'm Brazilian, by the way, which is an indescribable country right now. We do have freedom of speech and a censorship-free internet here, thank god!
    And what good does this freedom of speech and censorship-free Internet do for your fellow Brazilians? Does it help with the endemic political corruption? Does it help with the endemic poverty? Does it help with the staggering rates of crime (I have several Brazilian friends all of whom have left the country for this reason)? Does it help with a brutal and corrupt police force? When the pope comes for a visit or there's an important sporting event, out come the BOPE and cleanse parts of a favela. Lovely freedom!

    I'm pretty sure we'd be afraid to be having this discussion publicly (either online or in the real world) in most places of Russia, in 2017.
    You mean like African American people being afraid to walk around their home town without being harassed and or shot by the police? And this is today. I suggest you check out what it was like a mere 50 years ago.

    The whole world is A LOT more afraid that Russia together with China and North Korea start dropping bombs, rather than the group of USA-UK-Germany-France-Japan-South Korea-Australia dropping the bombs first.
    Really? I live in NZ and I see the US as the bigger threat. Most of the Kiwis I know feel the same. That's the problem with anecdote. It's not evidence.

    . The FREE WORLD is made of nations where people can freely criticize their governments, and people ALWAYS should! You really should seek more historical information on what authoritarians like Putin, Assad, Xi Jinping and Kim Jong Un are indeed willing to do to accumulate more and more power for themselves.
    You can criticize the government in the US sure. At best nothing changes. At worst you lose your job, get the FBI interested in you etc. Just look at how Kaepernick is fairing and all he did was refuse to stand for the national anthem. So much for freedom.

    Another thing: you do know Putin's government has gone through a lot of effort to elect Trump, so you're not being intellectually honest here, you know that.
    It's simple. Who voted for Trump? Putin and his Internet trolls or the American public? If you think Putin put Trump in power, not only are you being intellectually dishonest, you're being an idiot.

    Putin has gone as far as taking another country's territory by war
    Like the criminals I listed did with Afghanistan and Iraq!

    closely helping a dictatorship in Syria that doesn't refrain from using chemical weapons
    The USA has a long and checkered history of supporting brutal dictators, going as far as deposing democratically elected ones (see what happened to Allende in Chile). Ditto with arming rogue factions around the world.

    Putin IS a huge threat to the free world (these are his words)!
    The biggest threat to the "free world" is the USA. They have the largest stockpile of nuclear and biological weapons, have shown the propensity to use them and have plenty of money to fund military action. For all of Putin's shortcomings, he isn't stupid. Trump on the other hand...

  • frazzl 16/11/2017

    @jinglejangle I agree - the remastered versions of the game were completely unimpressive to me. With all the games being released, why buy an old mediocre one to play again? As for playing it on the go, well not all games suit this. That's the thing the DS and 3DS got right that Sony couldn't figure out with the PSP and Vita. Not all games designed for home consoles work well as games on the go. Reply -4
  • frazzl 16/11/2017

    @Nikanoru It's awesome to see a game designed for the big screen play out on a tiny screen? A game that you have most probably already spent dozens of hours on? The only champ here is you little buddy :lol: Reply -7
  • frazzl 16/11/2017

    @Nikanoru
    The article keeps mentioning cutbacks, cutbacks, cutbacks, but the Switch version is actually a pretty big improvement over the original X360/PS3 release. It uses the extra content from the more recent remaster, including more detailed textures and additional environment detail strewn throughout.
    So improving on a 6 year old game released on 12 year old machines is an achievement? :lol:

  • frazzl 16/11/2017

    Here's a suggestion Eurogamer, instead of regurgitating bullshit from the Reddit AMA, how about asking EA and Dice some hard questions? Starting with how dare they add such conspicuous freemium features in a game that's full priced. Or for that matter giving the game an Avoid rating for being the cynical piece of shit it is. I have read a number of editorials here about how Eurogamer are looking out for us gamers as consumers. It is about time you put your money where your mouth is. Reply +8

    @Kili102 Downloading the patches is a pain. I was fortunate that I chose to download the 4K assets in advance for Gears 4 and Halo 5 - started the downloads the weekend before I got my X1X.

    My wireless downloading has been the same on my X1X - in NZ download speeds are pretty shit independent of machine used :(.

    Really enjoyable read, yet all I hope is that Microsoft crash and burn at E3. Better still close down would make my day/week/year. Not going to happen but I can only hope....
    Nothing against the Xbox one per se just despise the company and their money grabbing morals. Typical large brash American company determined to monopolise and drive gaming into the ground once it's rinsed dry.
    Another salty Sony pony.

    @BlackFlower
    The difference is noticeable (on a 4K screen), but yeah it's subtle.
    TBH I often found the differences between 900p and 1080p already quite subtle. Noticeable side-by-side, but easily forgotten once you actually get into the game.

    I really hope next gen will put some more emphasis on frame rate, because wrt resolution we're really hitting the laws of diminishing returns quite hard.
    I agree with you on both counts! A difference in frame-rate of 40-60% is easily noticeable. Resolution-wise not so much.
