  • Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Sunken King review

  • mr2ange 25/07/2014

    @Daeltaja Exactly the same here, Having finished Demons twice and Dark twice, this game was a very large stride in the WRONG direction.

    it started well, but just ended up being an octopus of a world map - every boss just ended in a dead end,

    Area transitions were so badly executed, some places (poison place in particular) was NOT challenging, but just shit.

    And so many bosses were uninspiring.

    Still, now that Miyazaki is back on the next project - BloodBorne is going to be under close watch.

  • Valve adds thumbstick to latest Steam controller prototype

  • mr2ange 24/07/2014

    @Suarez07 "you cant help but notice the sheer difference in input lag from using a mouse in almost every game. Aiming in tomb raider and AC4 just seems like it's gone slow mo, Matrix style. "

    Thats simply not true,

    yes it takes time to aim, but thats not input lag at all, its the fact you have a pre-determined speed with an analogue stick and not a almost complete un-restricted speed input device (mouse).

  • Watch Dogs enhanced graphics mod gets a final release

  • mr2ange 23/07/2014

    @Dynasty2021 "Oh it makes the consoles look bad. So? The consumer makes that choice by buying the cheap hardware."

    Keep dreaming... Maybe its because they actually wanted some people to be able to play the game on pc, not every pc gamer has a monster of a rig.

    Also the game wasn't exactly stellar in the first place, to put it simply, no matter how much polish, its still a bit of a turd.

  • What if every PC game could run on your tablet?

  • mr2ange 19/07/2014

    Wouldn't make the slightest difference.

    the input is the problem.

    Touchscreen simply cannot live up to kb/mouse or control pad for anything other than simple games or games that do not require speed/accuracy. (e.g. Turn based or puzzle)

  • The Last of Us Remastered lets you lock frame-rate at 30fps

  • mr2ange 17/07/2014

    Wow, so much bitching all because the developer added a little tickbox for a setting that most people wont even bother switching on.

    seriously grow up people.

  • If Star Citizen hits $50m its developers will create alien languages

  • mr2ange 16/07/2014

    @The_shlaaaag_returns "The Last Guardian: ignoring the fact it's clearly had well over $100m pumped into its development"

    Are you sure that's a fact?

    as far as the internet is concerned they are not a very large studio, considering gtaIV had over 1000 people working on it at peak, took 3.5 years to make and cost $100m, I think you are over estimating massively,

    @sid-6581 "Make this a game that makes a GTX 780 Ti sweat, just like in the old days when there was no PC on earth that could run Strike Commander smoothly. "

    Wouldn't that be great, so only 2-4% of the backers get a half decent experience from the game.

    great logic there.

  • Face-Off: Sniper Elite 3

  • mr2ange 09/07/2014

    @INSERT-COIN Yup again, people here often shit on laptops, again its always the same people who just want to think that they have the best of the best and nothing else matters.

    As i've said countless times, I have a decent pc, two quad core cpu's and 24gb of memory, it does me fine. but i rarely game on it.

    I only play the games that i feel do something genuinely different or interesting, stuff i haven't seen before.

    for a while this mean't pc only - as the indy scene was growing here. but now the consoles get these too.

    I remember seeing demon's souls for the first time, and going - yup thats a winner, this is WAY before it was released even in the asian territories. so i ordered a copy in chinese and found it to be as special as i'd hoped. - this has now spawned a whole franchise of games, which have been enjoyed on multiple platforms.

    I hate how people simply shit on the other platforms just to make themselves feel good about the one they personally support. its sad.

    very very sad indeed.

    @funkyman "These entire articles are designed to promote that."

    No, see thats the problem with you - These articles are supposed to provide a technical analysis and let people know how each platform fares.

    and as I said before, ps4 pretty much matches pc in terms of visuals and the game play is near on 100% the same.

    if you have the pc to run higher res, thats great! but the experience isn't going to be very different regardless.

    @funkyman This is exactly the "willy waving" crap i've been talking about on here.

    Sigh... how pathetic...

    As i have stated in other posts, it will not change the way the game plays at all, the experience will be largely the same.

    @INSERT-COIN The issue is that I totally agree, I don't want pc to be removed at all. I would love there to be two spec pc's being compared.
    -one that compares roughly to the price of the console.
    -and one that shows what top dollar can do, would be ideal.

    It's just the petty put downs to console that i find so stupid.

    a few months ago it was "yeah but on pc we can run 1080p @60"

    and now 1080p is suddenly for people with barely any eyesight...

    AKA..

    "if you list your eyesight in a tragic incident with a hunter who mistook you for a bear"

    not taking my point at all, and referring to his own comment about someone else's post, then posting up the most boring meme that has been done to death just because he can't actually counter my point is just pathetic.

    @Suarez07 I wasn't commenting on your previous conversation you spastic - I commented on your willy waving comment about eyesight.

    What I said is there was no perceivable difference for 99+% of PC gamers,

    And the game-play experience will be exactly the same.

    YOU went on about not removing pc from the articles, that point you raised had nothing to do with my post at all.

    @Suarez07 "My whole point was that why exclude PC gamers from these articles?"

    but the PC platform is IN the article isn't it you bellend. pc is mentioned many many times and there are image and video comparisons across all three platforms.

    What more do you want?



    "if you list your eyesight in a tragic incident with a hunter who mistook you for a bear"

    @DreadedWalrus Great, that will be extremely useful for the 0.2% of pc gamers that can utilize it.

    this also makes zero difference in game play what so ever.

    so as i said, barely any perceivable difference what so ever -in 99+% of cases.

  • PS4 fails to boost Japan console market

  • mr2ange 08/07/2014

    @ItsBozzie I agree, I think once the PS4 gets its own "monster hunter" sales will likely pick up.

    However Japan does seem to be a heavily handheld based market these days, Vita and 3DS dwarf all the main console sales every week.

  • Devil's Canyon: Core i5 4690K and Core i7 4790K review

  • mr2ange 29/06/2014

    @UncleLou Well yes alot of that is true, they made games that looked amazing but got progressively worse with each iteration.

    Yes their F2P experiment has really caused them to fall into deep shit.

    but the fact still stands, if you aim at the very cutting edge, the sales will not be enough to support the development.

    I knew i would get loads of negs for that comment, but if i'm wrong, then where are all the developers making cutting edge games that exploit the very latest hardware to the max?

    If I was entirely wrong there would be no "console's holding back pc" argument in the first place.

    PS. I don't post comments to "look good" - I post my opinion for others to read.

    @ProAssassin84 This may be the single most sensible and accurate comment i have read on eurogamer this year.

    I'm glad someone else gets it.

    A lot of people wont like it but thats how it really is.

    Edit- to put this into context, remember the old favorite: "but can it run crysis?"

    Crytek did exactly that - aimed at the very top of the market, and to their credit, they made a game that could never have been done on consoles at that time. the only problem is that barely any pc's even high end could run it at an acceptable framerate.

    Where are Crytek now? Knocking on the door of bankruptcy.

    If you want to make real money in the pc sector, you need to be aiming at more than the top performing 2% of systems.

    I don't really get anyones point on this article.

    They all run pretty damn well, they all look pretty damn the same.

    They all definitely play near as damned it the same..

    Who cares? regardless of platform you'll likely get an experience 99.9% the same as if you played it on one of the others..

    Buy it for the platform you own/like most - job done.

    Yeah i agree, this was a technical masterpiece at the time of release,

    It actually released with software rendering if i remember rightly, only after a patch or two did it get opengl/glide api support - I still remember to this day when I got my 3DFX VooDoo 2 and running unreal with Glide.. Damn, all of a sudden it was the slickest framerate for anything 3d i had ever seen.

    Loved the sound, the mod/s3m music... those were great days.

  • Dead Rising 3 PC release date announced

  • mr2ange 20/06/2014

    @INSERT-COIN This is exactly it, There will not be that many developers (especially if the game is simply a port) that will bother to push the more complex tech for the multi-card owners,

    I'm not sure how the max payne engine was capable of allowing the 4gb settings, maybe the data was split across the cards evenly or something? it could be done if the resources were are well.

    Unfortunately there are so many different possible setups, and various engines have different ways of dealing with different hardware/software, I guess this issue will be around forever due to the chaotic nature of the variable system types.

    If all PC's used the same type of gpu / operating system and API then it would just be down to developing the engine to support it.

    And even then, there are some game that are JUST badly written.

    I think you are right, DR3 and GTAV will probably do a much better job than watchdogs did

    @INSERT-COIN No, your logic makes total sense, This in my opinion stinks of lazy porting...

    I guess it depends on the amount of that vram being used, but even then when ur talking about 2x the bandwidth and over 4x the fill, its hard to see how it would perform worse.

    as bad09 said, it could simply be they are quoting specs far higher than what are actually required, i expect a DF article will clear up any misconceptions.

    @INSERT-COIN Yup indeed - The fact is for me the most interesting games will probably run on %80+ of the current pcs out there.

    There are some great indy titles that are so inspiring too!

    My machine is not at the very top in terms of gpu power, but I have enough memory to last for a long looong time, as long as no game that requires more than 24gigs to run i should be ok ;)

    Haven't tried 3d mark for years, maybe i should give it a go and see where my setup stands :)

    @mega-gazz Why would a developer/publisher of a game costing millions of pounds to make, that has no interest or products in the hardware market try to force people to upgrade their hardware?

    If anything it would be in their interest to quote lower specs to get MORE sales from the pc market,

    Am i wrong?

    @-cerberus- Great, but that still makes no difference to the tens of thousands of people downloading games constantly illegally 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

    Unfortunately this is the exact reason why DRM exists in the first place.

    DRM will not be going away anytime soon, if ever.

    Nope. it all boils down to the part where you say:- "something odd happened to my account and I couldn't login"

    then "Despite being able to prove that my old & new Steam accounts were owned by the same person"

    They can easily re-enstate the code.

    "Nothing they could do." doesn't add up.

    Not grey. It's piracy.

    @arcam

    I'm not saying they are worthless, but they are not the most important thing either.

    As I said to insert coin, i'm pretty sure this will look great on all 3 machines. I don't think i will have any "lesser" experience playing on my console than on a pc, its the content of the game that excites me, not the amount of horsepower required to run it.

    @INSERT-COIN Yes I agree, jagged edges don't help, but 'slightly better fur' and some 'added physics'
    will not hinder the game with their absence.

    Yes visually it may look weaker, but the added effects being quoted will not be something that makes it a "better" game so to speak.

    I'm not disagreeing with you, better visuals DO make the world look better, but in my opinion, gameplay is by far the most important element. As you have quoted with Minecraft i'll take that as an example - It has depth not in its visuals, but in the possibilities within its own systems. that is the part that I care about, For me I expect the game will look great on all platforms.

    When looking through the DF articles on a frequent basis, there are barely any differences between the 3, Including Pc, sometimes you can notice it, but even then, this is while looking at all three next to each other its far less important than what is actually happening in the game for me.

    I understand there are lots of animals in the game, and thats great, but i'm more interested in what they do, how they move and interact, than the glossyness of the already very decent looking fur.

    Will the W3 have shit res low res textures and awful AA? I hope not, because all of those things combined would hurt it, but as far as I see when looking at comparisons it looks like its going to look great on all 3 platforms.
