  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 review

    @Suarez07 Oops, forgot to mention the game! Battlefield 4 it is. Reply 0
  • mkreku 20/09/2014

    @Badassbab I'm using Fraps. There's a function in it that records min, max and average frames and outputs it in a file. I played for a while with it on and it gave me this: min 43, max 79, avg 61,183.

    I noticed the min value occurred in a cutscene and the max value inside when I ran into a wall, trying to find a window.

    @solkeher My Tri-X R9 290X is also completely quiet and surprisingly cool. I'm very impressed by Sapphire's build. Reply +1
  • mkreku 19/09/2014

    I wonder what kind of 290X they are running in these tests. I'm using a Sapphire Tri-X R9 290X and in both Battlefield 4 and Tomb Raider I am getting consistently higher numbers than Digital Foundry at 1440p (I don't own the other games). Especially Battlefield 4 (at Ultra settings) is super smooth for me and not even close to Digital Foundry's 47 fps average. Reply +2
  • Legend of Grimrock 2 gets an October release date

  • mkreku 19/09/2014

    Actually, if this was based on Ultima Underworld (like Arx fatalis) I'd be a whole lot more interested. But this Eye of the Beholder gridbased, side-stepping just felt too.. old for me. I never finished Grimrock, partly because of this. Reply +1
  • Watch Dogs: Bad Blood shows off its new tricks

  • mkreku 15/09/2014

    I liked Watch Dogs enough to play it to the end. The world and graphics were great. I just wish it wasn't so shallow. There's just nothing to do except the missions so the world feels slightly wasted

    At least let me go fishing in that fishing village up north.

    Amazing that Eurogamer managed to write something about a Techland game without using the word "flawed". Reply 0
  • Editor's blog: I'm leaving Eurogamer later this year

  • mkreku 09/09/2014

    Change is always scary.. But I really think this change is for the best. Eurogamer has been going down a path I personally don't want to follow for a while. I've noticed myself getting on here less and less and usually only for Digital Foundry. Let's steer this ship back to gaming, shall we?

    Thanks for all your hard work, Tom, and for getting Eurogamer to where it is today. Also thanks for stepping down in time and good luck with your future endeavors. Let's hope for another prosperous 15 years of Eurogamer!

  • Digital Foundry vs Dead Rising 3 on PC

  • mkreku 07/09/2014

    @alexatkin I've been using ATI/AMD for at least ten years and I've never had to wait for a driver update.

    Which games did you have to wait for?

    @Trejser Oh wow, great, I actually own an overclocked 290X! See, THIS is what I want Digital Foundry to investigate! Reply 0
  • mkreku 07/09/2014

    Would have been nice to see if there's any difference between high-end Nvidia and high-end AMD GPU's too.

    You use a GTX760, a GTX780 and a Titan in your test bed? Are you sponsored by Nvidia?

  • Radeon R9 285 review

  • mkreku 02/09/2014

    I bought a Sapphire Tri-X R9 290X back when it was released and I must say I've never been as impressed by a GPU as I have by this one.

    It's such a boon to be able to install every game and always max it out! That feeling of never having to compromise any setting is just so worth it (for me).

    I have not had any problems with the drivers either. Not a single problem.

    I really don't get the AMD hate.

  • The worst games I've ever played, by Ellie Gibson

  • mkreku 28/08/2014

    I joined Eurogamer because of Ellie. The interviews she used to do always cracked me up (my favourites are the ones with Mark Rein from Epic and the pretty girl from Red Alert 3).

    So now, Eurogamer.. No Ellie and instead article after article about misogyny in games. Great.

  • Metro Redux: what it's really like to develop for PS4 and Xbox One

  • mkreku 27/08/2014

    Ukrainian people seem to have a knack for saying much with few words. Have a Ukrainian friend who is exactly like this, she uses five words to say what I need a story to tell.

    Also: thanks for calling my MiPad a bright star! I will go home and hug it now.

  • Video: Ten minutes of Dead Island 2 in violent, messy action

  • mkreku 25/08/2014

    It annoys me that Eurogamer always writes down the Dead Island games. They were good, had a lot of fans and sold accordingly. Maybe, just maybe your 6/10 review was wrong? Reply +10
  • Risen 3: Titan Lords review

  • mkreku 20/08/2014

    I've played this a fair bit now and I must say I disagree with Dan Whitehead.. as usual.

    The game is much friendlier to new players now. Everything is explained thoroughly and nothing super-dangerous awaits you for the first few hours. Your companions are a great help while you're getting the hang (and skills!) of the combat system.

    The story is great so far, and keeps me driving forward to see what I can do next. I do not understand the complaints about the voice acting at all! But I'm not a native English speaker so that might be it. For me it's been all good so far. Love Bones (the character).

    There's so much stuff to do, even though the game doesn't feel very big geographically. Everywhere there are hidden things for you to find. Also, some hidden areas require very specific skills to get to, so you always have a reason to come back and try to remember things. It's great.

    The swimming and climbing makes the world feel much more exciting than Risen 2 did. There's just more to see and find when not every path is obvious to the eye. I've only explored three islands so far, but because of the excellent world design it's taken some time. Time I've thoroughly enjoy, mind.

    The quests and missions feel very organic, and I have yet to find any of those dreaded "fetch X of Y" quests. It's mostly people who need help reclaiming their homes and soldiers needing help to search for their lost items. Nothing out of place or too gamey.

    Right now I'd say it's worth 8/10 or even 9/10, but I haven't played long enough to give such a high score. If it holds up to the end, it's a 9.

    Ps. I love the graphics too. No more popups or technical issues and very pretty!

  • Destiny's beta characters are being wiped

  • mkreku 11/08/2014

    My character was wiped maybe ten times while playing the beta for Path of Exile. Didn't bother me in the slightest. More often than not, the very beginning of these types of games is where they are the most fun, at least for me. Reply +3
  • Remembering Double Dragon, a true arcade icon

  • mkreku 10/08/2014

    I grew up in a small town called Kiruna (check it out on a map, it's further north than Siberia), and close to my school was a small hamburger bar. They only had room for like 6-8 people but for some reason they always had the latest arcade game there (yes, singular).

    One day when I checked out the place they had gotten Double Dragon. Me and my best friend immediately fell in love with the game. We also played it so much we could finish it on one credit. Run diagonally and elbow, elbow, elbow.

    Happy days those.

  • Metro Redux video compares original Metros to next-gen remasters

    Wow, that was one awesome trailer. Those games are so pretty!!

    I just wish I wasn't such a wimp playing them. I tried the first Metro, but never finished it because I kept panicking and running out of ammo and filters :(

  • Nvidia Shield Tablet review

  • mkreku 07/08/2014

    I tried playing GTA: Vice City last night on my MI PAD. I got a very consistent 60 fps (frame-limiter kicked in) and I didn't notice any stutter. But it got hot. And when I use the word hot it's an understatement. Reply +12

  • Xiaomi MiPad with Nvidia Tegra K1 review

  • mkreku 05/08/2014

    Well, I got my Mi Pad now.. and it's amazing. 42000 Antutu, excellent build quality, slightly heavy, great screen and it feels very, very fast. The battery time is also fantastic! I've watched two full-length movies on it on one charge and still had a days worth of use. 128 GB memory also. Reply 0
  • mkreku 21/07/2014

    ..and if you know anything about Xiaomi, you'd know it's not a rip-off. Their modus operandi is combining existing (top-of-the-line) technology in a new package, and this is what they have done here.

    Also, the look is a continuation of their own MI2 phone that launched a year before the Iphone 5C.

  • Underworld Ascension: The game that took 20 years to sign

  • mkreku 30/07/2014

    The problem with the old Underworld games isn't getting them to run, it's the controls. They don't have mouse-look and getting used to keyboard only controls again after so many years of WASD + mouse.. well, I couldn't manage it. Reply 0

  • Have mobile graphics finally surpassed last-gen console?

  • mkreku 26/06/2014

    I actually pre-ordered the Mi Pad a couple of weeks ago. Looks to be an amazing piece of kit.

    It highly annoys me when people claim it's a Chinese knock-off of the iPad Mini. It's really not. I own the Xiaomi MI2S phone (released in October/November 2012), and the Mi Pad is a continuation of the design philosophy used for that.

    Xiaomi has made it a point though to utilize the best existing technology in their products. This is why the Mi Pad has the exact same size/resolution screen as the iPad. It's the same screen! They will also be the first with the Tegra K1, which is awesome.

    Btw, I imported the MI2S on recoomendation from Eurogamer back in April 2013. Best. Purchase. Ever. Thanks, Eurogamer!

  • Rainbow Six Siege has male and female hostages

    I've just realized I'm coming to Eurogamer out of habit, not because I like it here anymore. I liked Ellie, but she's gone. I can't stand Dan "I base review scores on hype" Whitehead and now this social justice agenda.. just no fun here anymore.

    Anyone have a suggestion where I can go to simply read gaming news?
