  • Judge allows lawsuit over Killzone Shadow Fall's 1080p graphics to proceed

  • madjim 18/12/2014

    Ok, I'll tell you what. Let's sue all the companies that author and sell Bluray movies, stating 1080p, and still (when movies are shot in 2.35:1 format) the resolution is no more than 1920X817

    This should be fun to see.

    Excuse me for saying that all these things are bullshit.
    Lawsuits are the shit those days, isn't it? Because of a game. Not because the game is broken on release like Driveclub (I use another Sony exclusive, just in case you call me a fanboy) but a game that uses tricks to display 1080p!

    Of course... That's something that may destroy lives. I can only imagine the psychological condition of the gamers when they found out.

    Ok, I understand, the law allows it for a lawsuit, so go ahead. It's everybody's right. But to me, all of this is a fucking joke. Did Guerilla try to cheat by lying about the specs? Ok, you will never see again my money for your games EVER. This is how capitalism works. Vote with wallet.

    You will say "but it's false advertising"! And I am gonna ask... When was the last time you saw an ad describing truth?

  • Life is Strange Episode 1 release date

  • madjim 17/12/2014

    Despite plenty of not-so-positive reviews, I loved Remember Me. It had its problems, namely more combat than necessary and not enough memory sequences, but the depiction of future Paris was absolutely mind-blowing. Judging from the trailer above, I can see myself pre-ordering the Season Pass when it becomes available. Reply +9
  • Trine: Enchanted Edition is due this week on PS4

  • madjim 16/12/2014

    I got it from PS+ too. My opinion is that it's... magical. I haven't been awed by art design in a game for a long time now. The puzzles some times are a bit frustrating, because they are physics-based but nothing you can't overcome. But truly the game is so BEAUTIFUL that I couldn't turn off the PS4. And it's a very nice game besides that. If you like puzzle games, I don't think you will be disappointed.

    For some years now, I was only playing AAA games with complex worlds and stories, and didn't even want to try some of the indies given away for free on PS3 and PS4 (with the exception of the incredible "Brothers"). So one day, I loaded Trine 2 out of curiosity. After that, I loaded every indie game on both consoles and I have to admit that I was extremely stupid. Indies are not just good, most of them are better than most AAA titles. They are amazing value to pay in full, let alone get for free in PS+. People complaining about lack of AAAs lately on Plus... no! You should all play those games!

    I know, that's another subject but I had to say it. :)

    Those developers are talented, no doubt about it. I'd really like to see a new game from them, not the 100th remake of a Trine game.
    Saying that, I truly enjoyed Trine 2 on PS4.

  • Final Fantasy 10 / 10-2 HD Remaster coming to PS4

  • madjim 11/12/2014

    I've already bought the PS3 version for 20 Euros and I just need to find some time to go for it. It seems that purchasing this for PS4 if you own the PS3 version, is not worth it. The PS3 remaster is absolutely great, and I think that if they improve something it will be some aliasing and maybe 60fps, things that do not justify another purchase (it's not a racing or shooter so 60fps don't really improve much gameplay-wise).

  • Why are Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands more expensive on PS4 than on Xbox One?

  • madjim 04/12/2014

    I bought Game Of Thrones Season Pass for PS4 and yes, it seemed strange about the price difference. I could buy it for PS3 but I want to move slowly to the new console. One could say that you get a better game technically on PS4, hence the price, but although I haven't seen the PS3 version, the PS4 one definitely didn't seem like a new-gen game. Actually Beyond:Two Souls on PS3 (I mention this game because there are strong similiriaties in the way the games play) looks one thousand times better than GOT. Ok, I greatly enjoy it, as I do with all Telltale games, but the price difference isn't justified. Graphically this could easily be a PS3 game, and not one of the best (always in terms of graphics).
    And after all, the two Xbox versions have the same price? WTF?

    I am thinking about getting The Evil Within for PS4. All those who played it, what do you think, does it worth the 35 Euros? I know that I will find it in Amazon cheaper soon, but I live in Greece and the post office costs are an additional issue.

    I know that the Android absence is due to high levels of piracy, but it's game that it'd still make money on the format. Personally I'd buy it immediately. This is one of those cases that makes me feel regret about switching from iOS to Android (though I find it difficult to go back). Reply 0
  • Assassin's Creed Unity's Dead Kings DLC will now be free

  • madjim 27/11/2014

    Nice move from Ubisoft to balance the mayhem they caused. I didn't purchase Unity and won't, not until the game is fixed enough to be at the levels they originally promised. Especially the frame rate issues.
    Anyway, this is nice compensation for those who bought Season Pass. But what I really hope, is that Ubi learnt the lesson the hard way, and won't mess with their customers once again, now that they know that we are not blind sheep. I believe that the next game they will release in such a state will hurt them seriously in the stock market.

    Ok, I am guessing this will sell well, and I will buy it since I missed the last-gen version due to lack of free time last year (and we all know that this one needs dedication). But I'd prefer they concentrated in a sequel or something.
    Of course Bloodborne is coming.

    About the Outrun and fps talk... Home machines of the era had the ability to run racing games at that frame rate. I remember Lotus Turbo Esprit game on the Amiga running at 50fps. And maybe that Jaguar game too. It's not always the machine's fault that programmers do a shitty job. Reply +3
  • madjim 17/11/2014

    I think that if we judge from today's reviews of GTAV "current gen edition", it's not the limitations of the consoles but the limitation of Ubisoft's will to deliver a well-optimized product.

  • Who needs games: PlayStation 4's first year

  • madjim 15/11/2014

    I bought the PS4 recently just to wait for the arrival of Unity. Little did I know, so I replaced it with Inquisition and Alien Isolation. Meanwhile, all those months of Plus, created a list that was waiting to be downloaded in PS4. So, when I bought it (together with the excellent IMO Infamous: Second Son), I downloaded all those games from the beginning of PS4's Plus offerings. Amongst them the insanely (no pun intended) great Outlast.
    Yes, it hasn't the number of games PS3 has, is that really strange?

  • How Assassin's Creed: Unity's micro-transactions work

  • madjim 14/11/2014

    Ok,this is getting too serious. I am a huge fan of the series, yet Ubisoft do their best to make this change. Actually they did it. Here, I didn't buy the game, see? I am against boycotting companies, and I won't do that, I will buy Ubisoft's games when they are good and they don't try to fool me. Valiant Hearts was one of the best games I remember playing, totally deserved the asking price.
    But it's for sure, that I don't buy anymore on pre-order. Now I am just waiting for reviews, user opinions and DF analysis before I move to spending my hard-earned money. The problem with Unity was the bugs, but that was until I read about the micro (micro my ass) transactions. I want them out of the game and demand a patch that rebalances the economy, or else second hand after 6 months.
    Of course I know what I will take out of my demands.

  • Performance Analysis: Assassin's Creed Unity

  • madjim 12/11/2014

    I don't understand why all this fighting between gamers. The things are pretty simple. I am a PS4 gamer and I can realize that there is a chance here that due to CPU the game may run smoother on One. No problem, good for you, really. But after seeing some XboxOne videos showing some massive stuttering (the one with the vitros, somewhere in this thread), it's obvious to me. The developers simply didn't do a good job and the game went to stores half-finished. I am sure further optimisation would be possible, if they gave the game some more time to code.
    No matter what, this is unacceptable.

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition review

  • madjim 11/11/2014

    Last few days I was thinking to choose between Unity and Inquisition for my PS4. I am a big fan of both series but I'd choose one for now, since I don't have the time to play everything back to back. Since the reviews of Inquisition are greatly positive, and since reports of Unity being a buggy mess appeared, I'll leave Paris for later this year.
    Time to mess with my choices in Keep I guess. :)

  • Dreamfall Chapters: Book One review

    TLJ was excellent. But Dreamfall, at least story-wise, is one of my favorite games ever, I mean top-5 class. But I won't purchase the new one yet for one reason only. I don't want to play this story in episodic style. I want the full thing and I'd prefer to wait until it's complete and let it consume my life. Reply +3
  • Valve pulls game from Steam following dev's tweet threatening Gabe Newell

  • madjim 21/10/2014

    Every action has a consequence. When you are the anonymous user, you can get away with such statements (wrong as they are), but when you are a professional you should know that the impact may be as severe as your words. I am doing a job that can be seriously affected by my social media image, and no matter how many times I wished I could say some really strong words about my line of work publicly (not death threats though, this is too much), I just stop and think with reason. This guy didn't and paid the price. Would he really try to kill Gabe Newell? No. But if a game creator talks such words, how can we expect the gamers to behave better? He was punished as an example to the rest, and rightfully so. Reply +1

  • Resident Evil TV series to debut following final movie

  • madjim 13/10/2014

    I don't know if I am a minority here, but with the exception of the first movie which showed -some- potential, I consider the rest of them (though I didn't watch them all) some of the worst examples of game-to-film adaptations. For some reason Anderson's movies sell well, and this is sad to know. The last good movie of him (the only one maybe? ) was Event Horizon. Reply +2

  • Sony "temporarily holding back" DriveClub's free PlayStation Plus edition

    "An online game with broken servers at launch.

    Actually it's not. During the last few years, it's the only news about a good number of online games.
    In this case, I don't think Sony does this on purpose in order to sell more of the full version. They just didn't prepare the servers as they should. Which of course is very wrong and Sony fan or not, one should not make excuses.

  • madjim 07/10/2014

    Blaming tha author of the review for bias because he used to work for Xbox magazines, is like suspecting every football player for deliberately not playing well when he leaves one team and joins another.
    Many of you may think that the choice of console is a religion or something, but there are those who play games as a part of a normal job. And they will do that, either on One, PS4 or the Apple Watch. Get a life.

    As for the game, I think that Sony definitely lost this round, it's not bad for us PS users to admit. It will happen both ways many more times till the end of this gen.

  • Assassin's Creed: Unity takes a daring leap back to the series' origins

  • madjim 06/10/2014

    I really like the return to the spirit of the first games. The first three (especially 2 and Brotherhood), were among my favorites for last-gen. So, that would be enough reason to buy.
    Then I read about parity. Ok, it's not vital, but it sounds really shit to keep specs down, just to conform with the weaker. But I could live with this too.
    And then, the micro-transactions. I have all AC games on disc, bought week 1. This is the first time that I will wait for a serious discount. No matter how good the game turns out to be, I am not willing to give companies excuses to ruin everything.

  • Assassin's Creed: Rogue Achievements point to modern day section

  • madjim 30/09/2014

    I always (well, almost) loved the present setting in AC. Ok, it became a little stale from Revelations and so on, but one of the reasons I was really amazed by ACII and Brotherhood was that the connection between the dates wasn't just a "wake up Desmond" situation. The scattered riddles, implanted to the Animus and connected real persons of today with the conspiracy was one of the most addicting storytelling techniques of the last generation. Too bad they were lost in the process... Reply +4

  • Sony quadruples forecast loss for financial year

    Sony needs to put priorities. Z2 is an excellent phone, the best I've ever tried, and their camera division kicks ass right now with the release of A7S and the FS7. It's a pity that some of their divisions offer top products and they still can't manage to reduce losses as a whole. Regarding phones, my opinion is that there are too many Xperias out there. They should concentrate to three phones each season. The high-end, the mid-level and the budget. There are so many models out there that it gets messy. Reply +1
