    Really loved the Orchestra from Sony, such class and I really did enjoy the whole woman making funny noises, it went with the

    But yes my favourite is definitely Chris, so funny, and I cannot imagine how embarrassing that would have been for some people. I applaud EG for covering VR porn though, even though I can imagine why people might not want to talk about it, but it is part of the landscape. I just wish Chris was able to ask some more detailed questions about its update and what success they have had, just because I think it could define VR in the future (seems like he wanted to get away as quickly as :)

  • Are 4K visuals really the best use for Project Scorpio and PlayStation Neo?

  • makeamazing 18/06/2016

    I agree with the general sentiment of give me 1080p with 60fps with as much graphical enhancements and effects as possible.

    I might buy a 4K screen in the future, but it's really not the reason I want a new console, I want better AI, better frame rates, better looking textures, quicker loading, I'll take all of that over 4k. What would be a big disappointment would be a machine running 4k with no more effects or improvements and still at 30fps, then I think both MS and Sony have missed the point.

    I think this is a reaction to this gens, 720p/900p fiasco but I think its totally the wrong direction.

  • Xbox One S console leak: 40% smaller, 2TB, 4K

  • makeamazing 12/06/2016

    @SeanBeansGravyBoat or 720p depending on the game?

    Joking aside, I like the look of it, and was at some point going to buy an XBO, but was hoping the slim would come along...because the XBO is a massive box. Wonder what the price will be, don't want to pay too much as its going to be a 2nd console thats only used for 2 or 3 games.

    The game is seemingly getting more and more bizarre. I know the original two were not what you would call grounded in reality, but its just getting sillier and sillier. I love zombie games, not sure this is the continued direction that I want it to go to. Reply +1

    @arcam Thanks Arcam.

    Just wish sites would do FPS based on unclocking. I know that's what all the kids do these days, but I will just buy out of the box unclocked MB/CPU :) - that way I have a good idea what to buy with it (I've got a nice old dell aluminium case that I am going to rebuild a new PC in).

    Interesting stuff. Been out of the PC gaming card business for a while, but thinking about buying a 1070 or 1080.

    What is confusing is the i7 bit is the motherboard processor right, so what would the performance of the card be without OC that? I've never OC anything and am unlikely to, so does this have an impact or am I getting the wrong end of the stick?

  • Dear Donald: How video games could help you trump Hillary

  • makeamazing 28/05/2016

    Seems like a missed opportunity, more of a jokey article rather than perhaps looking at politics in games. What I would have preferred would have been an article talking about games that use politics or people power in their games.

    Sim City, Tropico, Democracy... delving into them and seeing how accurate they are with todays politics would have been a far more interesting article me thinks.

  • makeamazing 27/05/2016

    I was playing a co-op battle and it ran quite well, very impressed... I'm still crap at these games but its in a much better state than Rome, which was a game I was really looking forward to :(

    Lets hope for a Rome 3 now running as well and with some nice new features.

  • Speedrunner sets new world record for Doom... 3?!

  • makeamazing 20/05/2016

    Whats with some people moaning about articles about games that have just released (or associated with games just come out)... what do people expect them to do, ignore the fact that games are out.

    BUT...The only negative about websites is when they decide to start talking about easter eggs, storylines etc before the rest of us have had a chance to play it in any detail (and some sites have ruined that on twitter etc by posting the actual easter eggs/story elements - I want to find this stuff myself after paying 40 for a game, not be ruined by the first website that thinks they can get more clicks through posting it).

  • Combat fatigues: How Uncharted is a walking simulator in action game's clothing

  • makeamazing 13/05/2016

    Problem with the term "walking simulator" is it tends to be an insult wielded by small-minded gate-keeping asshats who want to be arbiters of what is and isn't a game.
    @MrTomFTW I agree, its also the same problem I have with people who call games "Quick Time Events Simulators". Heavy Rain and Until Dawn being two excellent games that were made to look poor by some elements using a term widely used as a negative.

    Note I am not saying that games should not have diversity in them (and UC has that in spades), what I am saying is that there is nothing wrong with having a character that is white.

  • makeamazing 13/05/2016

    @XBgamer I find it strange that it can be better than the other three games (according to the review), but it didn't get essential.

    I found the first chapter (rope swings) to be very clunky, but it pushes on wonderfully after that, and its just a fantastic game. I cant see how it cannot be essential. Its the last in the series, its a well loved, well liked franchise, its well made and very well written....

    For anyone who likes uncharted or wants a story led action adventure game with puzzles and great acting, it is an essential purchase. Its difficult to argue with that imho.

    Ah lovely, only gaming websites can make it seem that being a white heterosexual male with a white female wife seem like a bad thing. Sorry for being so generic in real life.

    'Walking Simulator' is my third favourite new internet term behind 'Port Begging' and 'Salty'
    @TheStoneRoses - surely you missed out "No next gen gameplay" that must be high up there.

  • Nvidia unveils GTX 1080 and GTX 1070: a new level in GPU power

  • makeamazing 07/05/2016

    This looks amazing, and its been a long time since I've really been that bothered with card technology, but i'm starting to feel the itch again.

    But with this kind of performance, and the AMD ones on the horizon, with low power consumption and more importantly more respectable prices, its no surprise that sony wants/needs to do a 4.5, tech is starting to move at such a pace that it has to try and at least keep up with some pace.

  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with Mirror's Edge Catalyst

  • makeamazing 01/05/2016

    @markyidoeverett Making games is far from easy, and being devs are far from lazy (in fact the amount of crunch (overtime) is usually a lot).

    This is why Sony have decided to go with a PS4k, and it seems sensible to me that a better console with better performance is what everyone is clamouring for.

    What is surprising is how Phil denies doing this is a good idea when developers are struggling to get past 720p on the XBO. The XBO is definitely in need of a 1.5 upgrade.

    That last scene was a bit ropey on the AA and shadowing (nice face animations though).

    I loved Mafia 2 and still am shocked at the poor score it got in some sites :D... but I am concerned about how long this game has taken to make and the lack of quality shining through in places.

    Lorne seems like the type of chap you want to work for in game dev, fully understands and appreciates the complexities and hassles of it.

    Shame it couldn't have been a bit more detailed/longer (though I appreciate this wasn't the best place to do something more detailed), as it really is generally fascinating, and I think something that many end users know very little about.

    @ChockysChild They do they have test units.... as well as dev units, test units are effectively retail units. Edit... note when I say "They" I mean they are available to developers, doesn't mean these guys had them.

    Now that doesn't mean if a game needs to be released *now* and it has poor frame rate, doesn't mean it won't get released anyway.

    I've completed the game.

    It's enjoyable but it feels like a rushed game, poor performance, a story that only half makes sense (and written by someone who likes going out beering it too much me thinks), an ending that is just pointless, a game that you easily felt there could have been more too it.

    As someone else said, it really is a one time play through, with the lack of other things to do in it, I just don't feel the need to go back.

  • Strange undertaking: the birth of gaming's first graveyard simulator

  • makeamazing 15/02/2016

    When Matthew Ritter found himself wandering through a cemetery a few years back, he discovered a grave that had his name on it. "The death date was very close to my birth date," he tells me. "That was odd."
    Yeah it's always peculiar when you see something like that.. when I was searching for my name on amazon (I had written a few books and was just wanting to see if there had been any user comment) I found a book from the 70's about my death... now that was weird.

    The game sounds like an interesting concept, but I am not for one of the "You make the story yourself" type games... I think that sometimes sounds like a general get out clause of designers.

    Or even just close the game and send me hate mail.
    Why would anyone send hate mail because of a game... stupid people.

    Wow that video didnt look good at all, the game looks trash.

    Slow animations, poor AI, weird "You can't get on the boat" so you walk a little away (where they would be watching you) and you jump through a window. Lots of static pointless characters getting in the way (reminds me of unity).... then add in the bizarre episodic stuff, this game is destined to fail hard.

  • PlayStation in 2015: Goodwill ensured that the party continued

  • makeamazing 30/12/2015

    It's the spineless, easily seduced games media that I find lazy. Sony has them wrapped around their little finger, a PR masterclass in how to get journalists so invested in your product.
    @obidanshinobi - you must have forgotten all the negative press Sony got before the console launched....

    Remember the Broken PS4 stories, making it sound like another Red Ring was around the corner, or perhaps the over heating pictures, the PS4 will definitely have DRM news....

    I actually thought there was way too much "Opinion" - not from EG but from other sites, rather than actual news/evidence. People were making crap up all over the place to try and put the XBO in a better light when they had screwed up so bad.
