  • "Manufacturing issue" holds boxed PC Dark Souls 2 back in UK

  • mr2ange 16/04/2014

    @jinglejangle You know, been playing on ps3, but if you haven't played it, or have a nice machine to push it properly, then please buy this game!

    The gaming world will be a better place if more people play games like this!

  • Secret Ponchos probably heading to PC

  • mr2ange 09/04/2014

    @Liuwil Well I can agree with half of that statement,

    There are no emulators that "exist" that can play anything or even emulate the os.

    Currently they are all just malware.

    I'm sure people are working on them, but nothing of any significance works, or will work for a long time,

    @Poncho_D I'm not saying it does,

    Just the sheer task of replicating such complex hardware is barely feasible, hell the ps3 is still largely still secure as a platform.

    Old physical nes games are becoming very hard to get hold of, nowadays nearly all games are available via digital from day 1, and HD or higher res remakes are commonplace today.

    Again, I wouldn't expect to see 360/ps3 emulation for a very VERY long time on any kind of playable level.

    @Poncho_D By the time either 360/PS3 can be successfully emulated at any stable sort of level,

    will anyone actually want to play those games anymore?

    They will likely be playable on the next next gen consoles anyway...

    "Gameplay wise , no! Technically, yes!

    frame rates are choppy, and by ND had to make various concessions to visuls to achieve the overall image quality they wanted."

    And the game kicked ass,
    Technically the was a Marvell on the platform.

    Game-play is not directly proportional to hardware capability.



    "Why wont ps3/360 be running ue4?"

    Because its not written for them, its specifically for a new breed of hardware you goon.


    Get back under the bridge.

    @KrisVr Yeah whatever, take only the bits you want and mash it togther to get the answer you want.

    You can't just stick a new gpu in every 3-4 years, yes maybe once or twice, but the rest of the machine evolves too, not just gpus.

    Soon it will be DDR4 ram, then new cpu sockets, then not long until PCI-E changes again, Sorry a motherboard is not timeless, just like a console is also not timeless.

    @Suarez07 "ermmm, ok this hasnt happened in last two gens then?"

    The last of us plays like shit?

    Last I heard it cleared up at the GOTY awards,

    "Ermmm one runs dx11, and is cutting edge, other isnt. Ps3/360 were 7/8 years old and couldnt run crysis 3 on dx9, not even dx1.

    "Big difference. If games were still running 64bit blah blah blah..."

    The Big difference Suarez is that 10 years have passed, the hardware has changed, the software has changed. and YOUR PC has changed.

    You are a PC elitist who cannot say anything on here without having to shit on consoles to try and justify your massive investment that depreciates every month and is no longer cutting edge.


    "but in ten years you wont find ps4 running any game that's a new engine etc well anyway."

    That about says how much you know.

    New engines come out all the time you fool.

    @KrisVr "Cheaper than console even with upgrades..."

    WTF are you on? This article is reccomending a Core i7-3770 and a 670 TODAY - thats more than the price of a console before you even start with anything else...

    Neither 670 OR the i7 are top end.

    I've paid my 350 for my ps4 and it will still be relevant when the next console comes.

    @Suarez07 "but they wil perform like shit in 5 and have to reduced in res etc."

    = Speculation.

    Face it, your machine is powerful now, but already facing the level of mediocre,

    If you want to run the latest pc games you WILL require to upgrade. its just the way the market is,

    Since consoles got a boost, all of a sudden the minimum system requirements for pc have taken a significant hike.

    You think your machine will be capable still in 10 years time?

    Far cry 1 came out 10 years ago... could your PC then play Crysis 3 at all?

    10 years for a PC is an eternity, you have very VERY wishful thinking mr Suarez.

    I'm sure your pc will play any game in 5-7 years at 1080 60fps.

    No it isn't.

    MY ps4 will play all the games that ever release on ps4.

    Your PC will not play all the PC releases for 10 years worth of gaming.

    Like i said CERTAIN people are happy to spend buckets of money to play games at the cutting edge, but i'm not one of them.

    @Sora888 Unfortunately this is the game you play with PC gaming.

    I used to be all in for cutting edge, until I realized how much i was spending, never being satisfied with the performance. always wanting it to be that little bit better.

    Where's Suarez07, I thought All the last of the console releases Looked and Ran like shit?

    For a console of this age its a pretty damn impressive result.

    Fact is you'll get a pretty decent experience with this version it seems.

    Well done to the developers.

    more than anything this shows what a well crafted game this was on the ps2.

    It holds up pretty damn well for a game thats coming up to 13years old...

    Great conversions to the other platforms though! Nice work :)

  • The numbers game

  • mr2ange 05/04/2014

    to be honest a 5 minute gameplay video or even a 2 minute one will usually tell me what i'm likely to think of the game.

    Screenshots and bullshit-intro videos do not.

    In all fairness if a game is getting high 8's or 9's on metacritic is usually IS a great game, and too if its getting 3's and low 4's its usually a pile of crap.

  • mr2ange 31/03/2014

    @ATARI Yeah i totally agree.

    Some of my favorite games over the last few years have been more bite-sized games (not mobile) but smaller games, like Outland / DeadNation / Journey / Braid etc...

    Not sodding DiveKick though - thats where i draw the line. :)
    Reply +1
  • mr2ange 31/03/2014

    @ATARI Agreed, No one can argue with the pricing of the game,

    And i think this is why it was awarded a 7/10 because for 6 it's has enough value to warrant that score.

    Not sure why people are so bitter over a fairly decent score for something fun and silly.

    There need to be more games that don't spend their entire budget on super expensive actors and cutscenes, and end up with a shit game at the end.

    @povu Exactly my point,

    Such expense for something that when actually has a worthwhile space in the marketplace,
    which will be years from now - an equivalent performance card will be available for a fraction of the price.

    This card is purely extravagance at its finest. (e.g. A complete waste of money that will depreciate in value faster than a brand new lamborghini that just went through a 6 foot deep pile of horseshit)

    Great, so yet another PC market split.

    Do I go for an AMD XXXX or an NVIDIA XXXX

    this one runs that game well, but this game has better support for xxxx cards.

    DirectX 12 windows 8? 7? 9???? Fuck off.

    this is exactly why consoles exist.

    i remember back when everyone thought Glide was the way forward, Voodoo2 cards.. anyone else remember that?

    Then all of a sudden they were shit and nothing supported them.

  • From Software explains changes to Dark Souls 2 graphics

  • mr2ange 19/03/2014

    Anyone that thinks that it makes any difference to the game clearly hasn't played it at all.

    Fact is, its one of the best games of the generation / decade / and all time imo.

    An awesome franchise which hasn't become a hand-holdy slog through endless boring cutscenes and had 90% of its budget spent on just graphics.

    Its a GAME.

    and the best part of a game is the GAME not what it looks like.

    Seems a lot of people have forgotten that.

    Edit:- Although if (From Software) you happen to feel the need to release a ps4 version that holds 60fps, then yes, I'd bite again.

    @arcam "it's something that has exploded beyond all expectation because of genuine positive reactions from gamers and word of mouth."

    Exactly F'ing right, VR has come and gone a few times, and the reason has always been that the Screens are crap or the machines rendering power has been far too weak.

    Now we are finally at a stage where it CAN work well. and the tech is there to support it.

  • Tech Analysis: Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition on PS4

  • mr2ange 09/03/2014

    @Playstationman

    PS2:
    300mhz cpu, + vpu's

    (gpu) GS 147.4 mhz
    32MB RDRAM (main memory)
    4 MB eDRAM (vram)

    PS3:
    3.2ghz ppc + 7spe's @ 3.2ghz
    256mb system memory

    (gpu) 550mhz RSX (similar to a 7800gtx)
    256mb vram

    However they are very VERY different machines, as is ps4 from ps3.

    Unlike pc's you can't simply count the numbers, as they work so very differently from each other.

    @bad09 Yeah i've tried to refresh it in the sound settings, it basically loses the connection to the amp and has no kind of wake up function.

    Don't get me wrong, I use the pc as my main media hub - all my films/music are always played though it.

    Just some crappy handshake code in the driver I expect, these kind of things need to be fixed for the pc to truly move into the livingroom.

    Wow some very angry gamers in this thread!

    I have PC / PS3 + PS4 hooked up to my tv, and each platform has its merits.

    One extremely shit thing though on the pc, as I use an external amp and run audio through the graphics cards HDMI, if the amp goes into standby or isn't on when i turn the pc on, it will never output through hdmi until rebooted.

    This is the exact kind of shit that console gamers are talking about, So do I look around for some hack to fix it? post on nvidia's website and wait months for a driver fix? (actually did this+still waiting) or just put up with it? buy a seperate sound card and hope the problem goes away?

    It's these kind of irritating problems that just put me off.
