    "But it's not really a concession you are making. You are just stating something you have observed. There is no reason to interprete that as conceding or admitting anything."

    You dont get it do you lol?

    It's like admitting to them in their minds, that the PC is not a valid gaming platform and is inferior.

    I am direct and up front and don't agree with anything for sake of following a crowd, but to give them this fuel for fire is painful.

    I still can't use a full kB and use a Logitech game board instead, which I love for fps with a mouse. I generally use 360 pad for anything else. Although when I start aiming in third party games using a pad I start huffing and puffing at how slow and Clunky it is to aim. Prefer it for movement in general in these games though

    Because, by conceding that, I am leaving myself open to incessant waffling by certain elements of the lunatic fringe, who will take this as a statement of fact that PC gaming as a whole has some sort of inherent fault that means it's somehow inferior and shit , and consoles are the only choice for everyone

    Indeed there room for differing opinions, and there's different things that impress some more than other things. I think in terms of pure details in the environments and interacting with it, there's nothing that matches it on PC, especially in light of hardware it's being run on. However, you can find other games with things that impress in own rights.

    I think it's the smaller details in uncharted that set it apart. Maybe PC games excel in the of quality of effects used(resolution obviously too), but uncharted is probably best lookin game over all out there. Much as I hate to concede that to the ps4 fanboys.

    (Witcher 3, GTA5, A C syndicate and Tomb raider all are stunning at 4k though, although I can't generally play them at that level and get a high enough frame rate to satisfy me personally on my hardware)

    Because consoles are sounding more and more like PC's seems to be the biggest annoyance I can pick up on.

    First it was graphic settings and this now seem to really riling people up. I think three year cycle is about perfect.

    Those interested can pick up latest model and those aren't can wait bit till either next iteration or pick this one up later down line. Sony and MS aren't losing money doing so, as these are off shelf parts and they cover the more enthusiast section and the lower end of mass market.

    Tbh, I'm pretty sure that most negs in these threads come from same individuals. Most other people I talk to don't even bother using them and actually only use the positive side of it. Maybe that's cause we realise how pathetic and childish the system is and feel confident enough to raise views and discuss them without resorting to negs.

    Facts are, this site is inhabited by a lot of rabid console fanboys and they despise each other, but they despise PC more. Anyone who dares talk about it, is hated by them.

    @Gemini42_

    For me, biggest compromise would be 60fps to 30fps and the AF. Otherwise differences are nice feature, but negligible in larger scale of things.

    I think the consoles generally do their job well enough for the masses, although compromise will always e required in some ways.

    For some 30fps isn't that important, others will rather lose a limb than play certain games that way.

    By nature of appealing to the masses, and the cost of doing so, consoles will always compromise more generally. For me, they didn't quite hit the sweet spot here, as CPU was kinda underpowered. If they got that right then ps4 GPU especially would be passable, although a slight upgrade would also have done no harm either.

    Obviously hardware means nothing without the right developers, making right choices when making gamesand, we see here more evidence of that.

    Enthusiast gaming PC will always remain just that I guess. My mate is happy with with xb1 and really wouldn't feel benefits of a PC at 1080p on his TV, let alone Ps4.

    He might notice that things feel sharper etc, but you tell him what it costs to get that and he would be not even remotely interested.

    Horses for courses I guess.

  • Performance Analysis: Homefront: The Revolution

  • kirankara 21/05/2016

    @pantherjag

    There's a bug on PC where game only runs on one core.

    " As you can see, Homefront: The Revolution initially stressed only one CPU core. As a result of that, the game’s performance was all over the place. However, by alt-tabbing, disabling all threads via the “set affinity” option and re-enabling all of them, the game scaled wonderfully on our hexa-core CPU. We were able to replicate this multiple times, so yes; this actually works.

    Homefront The Revolution CPU graphHomefront CPU affinityHomefront The Revolution CPU graph not bugged

    Thanks to this solution, our GPU was used to its fullest at all times, and we saw a massive performance boost in numerous scenes. In this particular scene, we saw a performance boost of 25fps."

    http://www.dsogaming.com/pc-performance-analyses/homefront-revolution-pc-performance-analysis/

    I'm not sure if Eurogamer were aware, or whether it would affect the game with 750ti/i3 set up. Theoretically though that i3 is only running on one core instead of 2 and that might explain some ropey frame rates, although that will depend of if it's GPU or CPU that's bottleneck here. Either way it can't be helping

    You should say that console gamers are being made fools of for purchasing hardware that can't play some titles at 1080p or 60fps and even 30fps steadily in some cases. (Or hilariously at times uses 2xAF)

    This is a first party title that Sony have thrown money hand over first at to ensure it looks good. Not unsurprising that they've added lots of little details that extract everything they can from hardware.

    There's no publisher in world going to do that on PC, and wouldn't be possible anyway due to such vast variety in hardware.

    But if you want 60fps or higher resolutions, then PC is your format of choice. It's simple

    I called him a bell end when replying to Gemini and also responded that as the Grand high sad c*nt of c*ntiness I was honoured by him deeming me to be a c*nt, as I aspired to be like him, I technically probably deserved to be banned.

    Like I said, I think a warning would have been fair, banned straight off the bat seems harsh, but hey ho, what can you do?

    Yawn. Like I said. I'm not engaging in your childish arguments. Grow up.

    I'm perfectly happy with my maturity levels and my hobbies and see no contradictions. Unless you're reading books on medicine and studying to save lives or something equally important to humanity, I don't see why this has any more validity and should be considered a mature hobby. I enjoy discussing my hobby and have no qualms in continuing to do so. Being mature and an adult has nothing to do with whether you chose to play video games or not.

    After all, it's just another form of entertainment.

    You're boring me and have better things to do with my life.

    Unless you have some form of revelation and stop being a troll with no life, please refrain from contacting me further.

    Also, if you really do consider games a waste of time, and consider other hobbies more valid use of your time, please feel free to leave the forums and go read a book or something, as well certainly be better use of everyone else's time.

  • Play limit on Wii U demos set by publishers, Nintendo says

  • kirankara 13/12/2012

    Highly doubt it's Nintendo who is pushing this through, but is in fact the publishers, and wouldn't be surprised to see this on all next generation consoles.

    I downloaded demo for trine 2 on steam, and was shocked to see when I returned to finish it few weeks later, that it no longer would allow me access to demo.

    I can see logic though, especially with a console like wiiu, and it's casual gamer audience being the majority.

    I used to play demo for FIFA repeatedly, and tbh, I c probably happily play demo rather than buy game, as I don't use all features anyway, but I still buy game anyway

    How am i a consoler, did you read my comment about me owning a pc with gtx590 and having various issues???
    I don't own a single console anymore. I'm.a PC gamer, who is tad frustrated with some issues I'm having, and was simply.stating that, i.can see.why people suggest that PC gaming isn't yet ready for mainstream adoption, as no matter how much people claim pc gaming isn't much more complex than console gaming, there are still fairly sizeable barriers to mass adoption of PC gaming in terms of accessibility.

    I'm no PC idiot, but can still run into various issues, and most people i know who game, simply wouldn't have knowledge, or time to spend working out issues. There's nothing worse than having an hour to yourself after work to play some games, but then spending hours trying to resolve issues instead.

    How am i not invested in platform, when is only one i own?
    Few minutes is fine, but surely these issues and solutions should be made available by developers, in one place where it's way to find answers. I've spent hours trying to find ways to resolve certain issues, and when you're new to something, it's a harsh.learning curve.
    Some issues i still haven't resolved, and it's frustrating.
    This problem , you say is easily solved, yet there were people, most likely more experienced PC users than myself, earlier in thread.complaining about.the issue. So, yes I'm.bloody glad i didn't pre order, as there's no guarantees I'd have found answer quickly, and would be thoroughly annoyed at having a.game running badly.

    I tend to wait to let.issues get resolved. Common sense to me. Pay full price and have issues, or wait, let issues get fixed, and get cheaper anyway.

    Do you have answers for my bf3 issue, or metro?
    I've googled bf3 thing forever and found no answer, whilst metro I've seem various suggestions, but no definitive one. One suggests that i reinstall old physx , that's included in game files. I.also get an error message in stream when i run a check on files, saying that it will download a file again, as it's faulty, but then it.doesn't download.anything.

  • Wii U has 1.24GHz CPU, 550MHz graphics core - report

  • kirankara 29/11/2012

    "However, clearly there are issues, as our recent Face-Offs have demonstrated. Moore's Law uses the amount of transistors packed onto a piece of silicon as a rough indication of 'power'. With a die-size measured at 33mm2, the Wii U CPU is far, far smaller than the processors in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. With the Xenon processor in the Xbox 360's combined CPU/GPU chip clocking in at around 70mm2, the entire Wii U CPU uses around the same amount of silicon as one 360 core plus the L2 cache. Both console processors are believed to be produced with a 45nm fabrication process, so the transistor densities involved are roughly comparable. With a deficit like that, even with a generational boost in efficiency, it'll be hard for the Wii U CPU to make up the difference, perhaps explaining why developers are finding Espresso challenging to work with."

    clearly ignoring the fact that the wiiu gpgpu is designed to offload cpu tasks then , eh EG?

    @makeamazing

    not very true at all.

    by all accounts the rumors are that the dev tools nintendo provided arent great, and obviously engines havent been designed to use to wiiu's custom architecture and especially it's gpgpu, so there's likely to improvements regarding wiiu games all round.

    AC3 seems to run very well, with only minor frame rate drop on other console versions according to LOT, and it looks pretty much identical.

    Thats' very early on in it's life and without the same amount of optimisation time afforded it as other versions.

    http://www.lensoftruth.com/heads-up-assassins-creed-iii-analysis-wii-ups3xbox-360/

    not sure exactly how accurate thsi article is below, but seems to suggest although cpu isnt as powewrful in some respects, it was never designed to be, and can still compete without extra power.

    @mannyYearsAgo

    Think anyone who isn't a fanboy for either platform , has figured out by now, that each has strengths and weaknesses, and that if you play to them, then you can make fantastic looking games. Me personally, I think uncharted 3 was best looking console game this season, but that's subjective of course, and you could argue that it's quite linear, and by now we know that PS3 didn't deal with open world as well as 360. We tend to see in ports of a good standard that, PS3 will do better when games are indoors and linear, whilst 360 will perform better outdoors.

    The general consensus of developers, is PS3 has more processing power and grunt, but bandwidth holds it back, as well as it being awkward to program for, make the 360 an easier and more balanced console to work with.

    I'd say it seems fair to say, the end and budget, often determine how good game looks more than the console itself

  • kirankara 27/10/2012

    The most dramatic change is in the lighting. The existing Forza engine is no slouch here - the image-based lighting of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (a technique that "wraps" the environment around the cars) was impressive running at 30Hz, but it becomes a thing of beauty at twice the frame-rate"

    I'm confused. excuse my ignorance, but can someone explain this paragraph please?

    surely both hot pursuit and horizons are running at 30hz? or did forza4 use same technique and that's what he's referring to?

    anyway, pretty looking game, but driving games do nothing for me personally. definitely can see impact of dropping frame rate to 30fps though. doesn't look anywhere near as smooth

    Sorry Mate, I phrased it badly, they obviously weren't operating at a loss, but profits were significantly down, and there's no denying windows 8 hasn't been big success, and the while xbox project has lost copious amounts of money over two generations. It's not same economic climate, and there's very little likelihood the board want to see console operating at loss again. Not something that will encourage shareholders to continue to invest. The point being that the poster I replied to was suggesting ms would be inclined to invest heavily in next gen console, again selling it at heavy loss, something all reports seen to contradict

    Regarding the success of windows 8, again you're right to a degree, but majority of feedback regarding it seems negative, whilst they seem to be offering it at heavily discounted prices in upgrades etc etc.

    Regarding PS3, 360 and Wii, all three been hacked in various forms for long time now, but PS3 has stayed harder to hack for longer. Imagine at this stage Sony won't be busting Gut to solve this, as.it's nearing end of cycle, developers will be winding down productions, and tbh, it's still less commonplace a hack than on 360, which is everywhere. People who will pirate software, will do so anyway, and lets be honest, it's not like piracy is new to PS3 .those that buy software will carry on doing so anyway.

As for dishonoured, then check out the df face off or lens of truth analysis and the facts are there, whether you noticed them or not.
    End of day mate, as much as you criticise the publishers, and I've done same, as me personally I think if they can't do a good port, they shouldn't do one at all, but truth is, they are a business ultimately, and they want to make as much money as possible. Sony really shouldn't have been so radical in their design, as they should maker their hardware as developer friendly as possible.
    If the playstation brand wasn't as strong as it was, due to last generation success, and the way sales picked up considerably when they dropped price, then tbh, developers simply wouldn't have bothered developing on it, as it's more hassle than it's worth for them, unless they work from ground up on game, which most developers don't want to do, they rather use an off the shelf engine
