  • Titanfall update adds private matches

  • geox30 10/04/2014

    The game was perfectly playble, fun and almost bug free from the beginning. It just needs a few additions.

  • EA apologises for Frostbite's "stupid" anti-Nintendo April Fool

  • geox30 02/04/2014

    I find it ironic and gives a good indication of the state of the modern games industry, that out of all, it is DICE/EA that think they are in a position to make such jokes. Do they seriously take pride for their work, when they can't even make their "renderer" functioning? Reply +3

  • geox30 16/03/2014

    An absolutely brilliant and enjoyable series, where its pacing, music, atmosphere, characters and puzzles blend together in a unique way. I just got the Miracle Mask game and I find that the 3D effect adds a lot to the immersion. Reply +3
  • Layoffs hit Plants vs. Zombies dev PopCap

  • geox30 14/03/2014

    I find it upsetting that western studios mainly care so little for moral among its people. It hurts quality no doubt. I know cost is a major thing, but they have to find a working formula so lay offs become their last option, not their first. Reply +12
  • Xbox One closing monthly US sales gap on PS4

  • geox30 14/03/2014

    PS4 is a better and cheaper system, but it all comes down to games and right now, Xbox One has better exclusives I think. If MS handled its price and DRM fiasco better, it would probably leading US sales. Reply +23

    Well,who would've thought that games such as this would have me more excited than AAA games.I am having a blast with Towerfall and cannot wait for Shovel Knight.Gaming is about having fun! Reply +6

  • Rome 2 killer camel DLC backlash prompts rethink at Creative Assembly

  • geox30 19/02/2014

    I am so sorry to see the Prime Jewel of PC gaming have come to this. I never skipped a TW game since the first one, with Rome 2 being the first I didn't get, mainly due to its many problems. Things like this futher alienate fans and give CA a negative image, when they should be working to achieve the exact opposite. Reply +5
  • Doom 4 is alive: pre-order Wolfenstein: The New Order to get in the beta

  • geox30 19/02/2014

    Their last good game I can recall was actually Return to Castle Wolfenstein. I thought Doom 3,outside of its tech, was crap. Repetitive, unchallenging, soulless. Having played that at a time where Half Life 2 was released, I was mostly disappointed. What came after,made me believe that they simply can't make good games anymore. Really hope they prove me wrong. Reply +1

  • Savour the Wii U and Vita - they're our new Dreamcasts

  • geox30 01/02/2014

    I love both these devices, but the Wii U is a serious contender for my personal favourite of all time. It may not be a popular opinion, but seeing is believing and outside of Nintendo 's own great games, I absolutely love what they did with Zombi U, Rayman Legends, The Wonderful 101 and mostly Deus Ex Human Revolution director's cut. I hope Nintendo gives a good fight to turn its fortune, cause it would be sad to just die without fulfilling its full potential. Reply +23

  • Can a 100 PC graphics card match next-gen console?

  • geox30 27/01/2014

    What strikes me the most is how ignorant and hypocritical the behavior of some console gamers can be.They bash Nintendo with all their might for choosing low end components and being a child's platform,they mock X0ne for having an inferior GPU but,when it comes to PC,all these arguments reverse and suddenly don't matter.And if they get cornered,they play the "PC elitist" card!

    Some people fail to understand that 350 pounds won't buy them a nuclear reactor, but a good value games machine. Back in 2006,Sony stuffed more expensive technology into PS3,making the machine too pricey at launch, even by selling it at a loss, which took them years to come back into profitability. In today's economy, they couldn't do the same. So, they built wisely a system with the best possible specs, that could be affordable enough to get into many homes right from launch and be profitable from the beginning. The PS4 is not as fast today as was the PS3 in 2006,but that was the only way to go. Reply +3

    It just came to my mind that no one mentioned SLI/Crossfire. With such cards low on power demand, you can add another in two years time for pennies and breath new life to your system. Reply +5
  • geox30 26/01/2014

    There is some truth in that with equal hardware you can get better performance with consoles, but not so much as they want you to believe. Windows OS for example with its services running in the background, occupies some of the systems resources, which in a console is almost a non issue(previous gens anyway). Then there is the directX, the API by which the graphics hardware communicates with the software, where in consoles this is being done in a more efficient way.
    Other than that, now that the consoles hardware is based on the same architecture as PCs and their OSs becoming more complex than before, you will see this gap closing.

    No one says otherwise. This article wants to paint a picture right now, in terms of comparing similar hardware, just to give you an indication of cost. Closed environments like consoles always deliver more eye candy than PCs when it comes to first party games. Look at what Nintendo does with their "outdated" hardware.

    Since you cannot understand the bottom line of this article, I'll answer your question, even though it is another debate. I would say that a system of a couple of hundred more, or 100-150 pounds without a monitor, can match or surpass the graphical power of the PS4 in raw numbers. But there are so much more you can do with a PC outside of gaming. Add to this that a new game costs -20 usually, which means that if you buy 10 games a year, you even the cost within that time. And that's without even counting the ridiculously cheap games you can get from Steam sales and other sources and the subscription-free online gaming.

    Anyone saying console gaming sucks is an idiot, as is anyone who says the same for PC gaming. No one is trying to kill console gaming, I can't imagine how that would be possible by posting on forums. But you couldn't be more wrong by saying that PC is not and will never be industry's priority.
    PCs are in the best place they have been in years. They offer whatever performance you are willing to pay for, they are more flexible on cotrol options on offer and enjoy a healthy amount of games from indies, AAA titles, MMOs and free to play games.
    Consoles are great in other aspects-they should be, how else would they attract people, like easy, comfortable gaming, without the hassle a PC would bring to the less techy users. Of course they also have their exclusive games, some of them are truly great.
    For now there is a market for both. Valve, the biggest player in PC gaming, understands and values what consoles offer to gamers and wants to bring some of them to PC gamers. I think that is the greatest compliment for console gaming. Less so but important enough, console manufacturers adopt for an x86 architecture for their machines, bringing some of the benefits PCs enjoy for decates, into console space.
    I don't know what the future will bring for consoles, but I can tell you for sure that PC gaming is not going anywhere.

  • Nvidia G-Sync review

  • geox30 25/01/2014

    @dipje Spot on description.The way I see it,this is a very welcome technology cost-wise,cause it eliminates the need for expensive upgrades in order to maintain 60frames.Even with that achieved,you still have input lag when vsynced.50fps gsynced>60fps vsynced Reply +1
  • geox30 25/01/2014

    @Guy.J. Not only it will beat a sustained vsynced 60fps,it will make it obsolete.If you are capable for more than 60,with a higher refresh rate monitor,it will produce that with no tearing,and if you drop below 60,it won't have the negative side effects of either vsync-on or off. Reply +1
  • geox30 25/01/2014

    @Guy.J. You are right on this,I have no idea what he is talking about.
    "Why the need for a technology that mimics 60 fps if your all playing that way anyway for the last 10 years".That looks like a comment from a ten year old that wants to act like he knows much.This technology does not try to mimic or emulate anything.

    Another PC related topic turned into a fanboy war for no apparent reason.Talk about inferiority complex.As for PCs vs consoles,your new consoles hardware is based on x86 architecture,making them essentially PCs with a custom OS. Reply +3
  • geox30 25/01/2014

    @pantherjag You clearly have no idea what you are talking about.A 60HZ monitor means that framerate is caped at 60frames max,meaning that if your card is capable of more frames,it won't get anything beyond that.When you have a lesser card or a game too stressful like Crysis 3 for instance,and you drop below 60 frames with Vsync enabled(to eliminate tearing),the game caps at 30 frames to synchronise the output of the GPU with the refresh rate of the monitor.That leads to stuttering.It has nothing to do with if PCs are capable of 1080p/60,which they are,depending on the game and the installed hardware of course. Reply +1
  • geox30 25/01/2014

    I look forward to get a G-Sync enabled monitor,but I will wait for an IPS one.I don't mind if it is "just" 1080p,since above that it is really stressful for some games,even for my GTX 680,in the highest settings.And although 60 frames and up is ideal,in reality anything above 50 frames without tearing and/or stuttering would be a great upgrade from what I get with my current monitor.

  • geox30 17/12/2013

    If you are referring to Nintendo Directs causing this,one could argue that in a similar manner,third parties don't port their games to Nintendo platforms cause first party games get most sales there.Both maybe true up to a point,but I remember Ubisoft stating that Nintendo should bring their best games to increase WiiU sales and therefor attract third parties.This is like the chicken or the egg dilemma.

    I agree with you. I also wanted a Metroid game announced from Retro, or something along these lines.I just find Nintendo, even with their best creative efforts like SM3DW,gets treated poorly by the public and gaming media, which is just wrong.
