  • The big list of PS4 Pro-enhanced launch games

  • makeamazing 11/11/2016

    Great to see the list growing, going to be interesting trying some of these out, especially Infamous (even though I've completed it)

    Off to argos at lunch as good old amazon said they were out for delivery yesterday, hadn't got anything by 10pm, and now this morning they say they have lost the parcel, but don't worry we'll give it another 48 hours to find it, "thats ok right".... nope thats why I'm off to get my pro at lunch. Unfortunately I also need to wait 5-7 days before they'll refund me on a parcel they havent delivered... they are becoming a bit of a joke these days :(

  • PlayStation 4 Pro unboxed - and what's next for Digital Foundry

  • makeamazing 04/11/2016

    Don't understand why DF think a split embargo is a weird idea, Makes perfect sense for Sony to gets sites to spread its content out over a period of time rather than just a massive amount of content over a one day period or so. Reply 0

    Not using Mods, just want to try and play the game in a better frame rate than it was on PS3.

    Just seen the start and it looks quite nice.

  • Battlezone VR review

  • makeamazing 14/10/2016

    @riceNpea The digital prices are even worse.

    PVSR World is ok, but its not £32 ok... that is indeed shocking. I mean the heist only takes about 10 mins to play if that, and that's only because of the cutscenes. PVSR worlds should be about £19 tops.

    Hoping that Hustle Kings is good, but then that was only £14 so cannot complain at that.

  • makeamazing 14/10/2016

    Looks good but that price tag.
    @George-Roper Not sure why you are getting negged for this comment, price does come into play with any game.

    Most reviews I've seen have said its a small team and a good little game. This is running more expensive than a AAA game. I have enjoyed my PSVR so far (though I am suffering from a little headache), but the price/gameplay time is a massive issue that most sites seem to be ignoring or glancing over.

    £50 IS a lot of money for this game.

  • makeamazing 14/10/2016

    Really want to get this, but the £50 price tag on Amazon turned me right off. They really shouldn't be charging that much for this type of game.

    The heist had a lot of potential but was staggeringly short.. and Batman is £16 for 1 hour... gah.

    Best game so far has been the free VR Robot thing, its brilliant, also Until Dawn is pretty fun.

  • makeamazing 20/09/2016

    Some points:

    1. Yes you should know what the PS Pro looks like...
    2. Why do you need a new TV for Pro, it supports 1080p improvements, so if you are using a 1080p TV you will in many cases see improvements.


    Ps I am looking forward to XCOM on PS4, already have it on PC, but must support more XCOMS :D

  • GTA Online Bikers update lets you form a motorbike crew

  • makeamazing 19/09/2016

    @GamerBhoy89 Haha :D

    Yeah sometimes I do wonder.

    It was at relevant though as Eurogamer were were talking about Red Dead Redemption... pretty sure Revolver is from the same series...hah oh well the "internet".

    Anyway for anyone who didn't know, PS Australia accidentally leaked Red Dead Revolver on their website before removing it. Considering rockstar games going PS2 to PS4 release, it makes perfect sense that the story is true and hopefully fingers crossed it will be tomorrow :D

  • makeamazing 19/09/2016

    Red Dead Revolver is coming (this week?) on PS4, so thats at least a start.

    Edit: Really a neg for saying this... would love to know the reason why the neg.

  • Meet the first person to reach level 1000 in Overwatch

  • makeamazing 09/09/2016

    @ShayenRoyen Is this article congratulating them or just reporting on it?

    Don't get me wrong I think its silly to play for 17hrs a day, I love gaming but there's over doing it, but to think other industries are different, they are not. there are always some people who overdo it stupidly in any form of life, be it drinking, exercising, sitting at home watching TV all day, gambling. So I wasn't condoning it, just saying that other industries all have similar issues. To think gaming is the only one is simply wrong.

  • makeamazing 09/09/2016

    @ShayenRoyen Yet the TV industry regularly goes on about binge watching of TV shows. So yeah I think they also do the same. Reply -2
  • PS4 Pro Performance Analysis: Horizon Zero Dawn

  • makeamazing 09/09/2016

    @Decaf The big difference was that it was expected that machines would be able to do 1080p as its been a standard for ages, 4K well not so much :D

    I get the impression most gamers are just wanting 1080p with 60FPS...

  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with the CUH-2000 PS4 Slim

  • makeamazing 09/09/2016

    @-TheDarkSide- Yes Sony have already said the Slim is the new standard PS4 unit. So the other will disappear.

    So I don't think it will be that confusing for the consumer, two consoles, one cheaper and one more expensive. Considering how many phone models there are I think gamers can work it out.

  • makeamazing 09/09/2016

    @Baihu1983 Yeah you mean like the initial reports that the PS4 overheated? I remember the initial launch worries (and the crazy internet showing pictures of the red bar)...

    Good times, things don't ever seem to change.

  • makeamazing 09/09/2016


    Yeah exactly the same, I think If i hadn't pre-ordered the Pro I would have got one of these for the living room as the current PS4 can make a fair bit of noise when playing games, it can be ignored but would be nicer if quiet.

  • Sony plays down PS4 Pro's lack of 4K Blu-ray disc support

  • makeamazing 09/09/2016

    I invested heavily in DVD then I upgraded to and heavily invested in BR, that's it for me, I aint moving up a level. The disks will be more expensive, the range of movies/shows will be limited and unless they have been shot in 4K (which many havent) it's a pointless upgrade.

    Some people are shouting from the rooftops that this new format it so important, but I tend to agree with Sony/most other people, that most people are using streaming services or just don't want to start their collections all over again. I mean to get some BR disks right now its best to buy them from germany, thats just how bad it is now, beg to think how it will be for this format.

    Fantastic story, sounds like whats happened to a lot of the good games making companies in the past 20 years.

    Please do an article on Tilted Mill next, would love to know what happened to them. They were at the pinnacle of a certain genre, and then disappeared.

  • Battlefield 4 just got a huge makeover on console

  • makeamazing 26/08/2016

    All they need to do now is get someone to re-write that totally awful dialog/story in the single player campaign and all will be good.

    Still impressed though that they went to so much trouble to update a game that's been out more than a couple of months. Seems like this is the new thing now, supporting a game longer term, and I like it.

  • Landing on a planet in Star Citizen looks spectacular

  • makeamazing 21/08/2016

    @Malek86 Well i think thats the difference.

    People can slate NMS for being devoid of stuff or at least missing that spark, but for a 10-15 person team, while SC has had $100m investment and massive teams, it should be more impressive than NMS.

    Saw the video yesterday and it was indeed very impressive. But it still felt empty. Perhaps the problem with all these games is they are going for massive universes without actually thinking about how to fill it with stuff.

  • makeamazing 12/08/2016

    @rep- I'm running it on PS4 and performance is fine, of course its a pretty slow paced game so that makes a difference.

    Though looking at steam reviews of NMS I think PS4 is probably running the better performance. :|

  • makeamazing 12/08/2016

    @PlugMonkey That's probably the best thing I've read on this subject.

    I think the game has its issues, but i've played and got enough narrative, open world and corridor story driven games, NMS is a breath of fresh air, even if some of the elements still need some work (the whole small inventory at the start etc).

    If they can add more content I think this could be a game that I'll spend a lot of time playing, we at least going back too, DeusEx is out soon :)

    @andrewsqual Ah good point, will do that, can't be bothered with people like that. Reply +2
  • makeamazing 12/08/2016

    Nope. It's the job of marketing and PR to hype products.
    @IronSoldier are you now saying no one can be hyped for anything, because PR have done some stuff... you are pretty silly.

    So do I. Singing universal praise completely devoid of balance is what imbecilic fanboys do.
    Show me where have I given it universal praise, I even said it was flawed. I guess this has shown you up even more to be some kind of crazy internet hater now ;)

    I think what you meant to say is that said types of music are "crap" in your opinion.
    I thought you would be intelligent to figure that out for yourself. But obviously not.

    Except EG is a site for all genres of videogames rather than being solely for one game genre so your comparison is a false equivalence.
    Not really is it... I still wouldn't go into a particular genre of anything and talk crap about it having never heard or played it. I have no problems people saying they don't think its worth the money, or they don't really want a game that is about exploration...(hey look back up at my comments if you can care to not just pick the comments that suit your argument).
    Reply +6
  • makeamazing 12/08/2016

    That said, you seem to care greatly that other people may not love something as much as you appear to love something.
    @IronSoldier I don't care what other people think of the game, but I do care when people are just being knobs.

    In terms of me, I don't think I've posted much in NMS threads previously, but I have read them and all I see is you moaning.

    Its just a game, Ive never seen anyone so down on a game they "intend to buy".
    Reply +21
  • makeamazing 12/08/2016

    Despite the fact I've stated on several occasions that I may buy the game
    @IronSoldier The problem is that you seem to be using that as an excuse to allow you to crap on the game. "I can hate on it, cause I errrrm intend to buy it" type excuse.

    I havent been on the hype train, actually I've been pretty low key on it, and am really enjoying it. But who cares if people are hyped for it, isn't that the point of video games, to be excited by a product... I just love buying and playing video games, some people just want to moan all the time.... I don't like certain types of music (rap is crap and so is jazz), but I don't go on a rap forum and shit on it constantly.

  • makeamazing 12/08/2016

    I will buy it when its £14.99. £50 is way to much for what it is.
    @Hellotherenow Yeah its a difficult one, I think it having the "indie title" many people are thinking its not worth it.... but I think i'll easily play this for over 20-30 hours and will get my monies worth. Which is more than can be said of the recent AC games which I paid full price for and have still only put in a couple of hours each.

    I suspect though, this is going to be a total marmite game... and some people will want to wait for a discount before giving it a go.

    @IronSoldier You really despise this game don't you? Not sure why you have a problem with a reviewer thinking its worth more than a 7.

  • makeamazing 12/08/2016

    @Da5e Yes exactly.

    I think it harks back to a simpler old school game format. I mean if anyone remembers elite, there wasn't particular grand stuff in that game.

    Thats not to say I wouldnt like more stuff, but I'm enjoying the whole exploration and discovery which most modern AAA games seems to have lost, for example the awesome things I used to think of an assassin creeds game is lost these days after 6 or 7 of them all using similar concepts and animations. I'm not talking gameplay but just pure discovery.

  • makeamazing 12/08/2016

    Yes I agree with the review, its a flawed game but really enjoyable.

    Didn't know you couldn't go back to where you had been though, thats a downer, hopefully they fix that in the future especially if they allow bases of some kind.
