PS4 PlanetSide 2 closed US beta this month

SOE saying that they make 3-3.5 time as much per user on console (DC univers) makes this the obvious choice.

@AgentDaleCooper on PC it jumps between having the cpu and gpu be the limiting factor, if you're off away from a fight it's usually the gpu being the bottleneck but near battles or the warp games it's the cpu.

DayZ standalone now due in 2016 for €40

Dreadaxe

4 years ago

SOE are taking their time but even if it's closed it looks to be miles ahead in production compared to DayZ.

Q3 2015 for starting the Console port means that even at their slowest SOE will likely beat them to it.

That being said I can play a still great game right now, the private shards are a god send in avoiding hackers, combat logging, and at least make friendly encounters a possibility.

PlanetSide 2: PS4, free-to-play and leaving money on the table

Dreadaxe

4 years ago

Spent money on it on PC and while I'm fine with characters not transferring over ( on PC they're server specific so that continuing is the norm) not allowing purchased camo/weapons/skins/armour to transfer is completely shite.

A very small portion of people buy things in F2P games, not transferring their stuff over isn't going to make them buy it again it'll make them give up. Spending a few $€£ on something especially when on the daily sales is fine but no ones no matter how much they like/addicted they are to this game will buy the same thing twice.

Grand Theft Auto 5 first-person mode confirmed for PC, PS4, Xbox One

Dreadaxe

Doubt there will be support from R* for online mods but that doesn't mean there won't be privately run servers but without support it's not going to be easy.

Not exactly hard to see that they'd not what it when they've got the micro transactions in GTA online. It's hard to sell fake money when you could just play a modded version with infinite cash rather than on the vanilla servers with the base game.

Logitech's response has already been shown as them passing the blame.

Apparently it's a choice between using sony's chip in new peripherals or writing your own drivers, which is why the old thrustmaster work even when don't have it.

Same reason that some ps3 games work with a dualshock 4 and some don't.

Gaming on the Big Screen: Optoma GT1080 projector review

Dreadaxe

4 years ago

Anyone projecting onto a white wall should either consider a screen if possible or paint the wall with a more reflective paint.

I used a matte white before and then changed to using Dulux Light & Space, there's better dedicated and custom mixes for projecting but this is far better than a plain white wall.

Elgato Game Capture HD60 review

Dreadaxe

4 years ago

Not a youtuber, the ONE and the PS4's own capturing is fine for me for the "oh shit did you see that moments".

Great that the PS4 now supports these, and with the 1080@60 in this and probably others to come there be an improvement in videos I watch as people who are dedicated to it upgrade.

But for me it's not something I'd want right now.

@bad09 And yet you can't name one, I can think of 1 game in the last few years and that came out over a year before the PS3/360 console version and the the PS4 version is yet to appear.

But out of any multi plat games that are released near each other the console version has sold a lot more.

Sony have released a few Vita/PS4 versions of games that were retroactively cross-buy, but I probably won't buy this if it's full price as it's a game that was already great.

Nvidia announces $3,000 Titan Z graphics card

Dreadaxe

It's looks and is branded as a consumer gaming product but the only ones who'd need it are businesses. For gaming you could buy a $300 card every year for the next 10 years and be better off.

But on the lower end I be interested in see how mid range cards compare to higher end one over time. I tend to buy the best per $ card as spending more now does not mean it'll last longer between upgrades.

PlayStation Store rental links spotted

Dreadaxe

4 years ago

Going to guess that the $5.99/$4.99 is for 1 day, as if it was per week that would be ludicrous considering the length of most single player games; guessing it'll be around 5/15/30 for the 1/7/30 day options respectively.

Unless we're taking Elder scrolls or some other huge RPG, most games lengths (taking into account replay-ability and MP) would not be enticing to publishers at that price.

That being said I'd say the prices will vary a lot, if a indie game is up for 0.99/0.49 for 1 day most of us will give it a try and probably buy it if it's good.

A discount for purchase (when appropriate such as PS3 games on a PS3) would be welcomed.

Tiny vs Big: In praise of Titanfall's smart pistol

Dreadaxe

4 years ago

Conflicted on the smart pistol, at least in regards to vs pilot targeting. The targeting requires 3 sets of 3 locks (might be wrong) and while it's longer I think there should be some sort of warning that you're being locked or change how the weapon works without lock-on; right now lock-on is just broken if fire early.

Personally I think that you shouldn't be able to fire without a lock (red not orange) or a warning should be given.
