When you're game's USP is "low gravity areas", don't expect anyone to care.

What Remains of Edith Finch review

FutureDave

12 months ago

I liked The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, loved Rapture, but this isn't really doing it for me. The room designs are fantastic and detailed in so many ways - i'd love the house to be real - but i'm not getting much from the story experience. Oh well, it was cheap.

BioWare apologises for Mass Effect: Andromeda's poor transgender representation

FutureDave

I saw a few trans folk on Twitter complaining that "no one introduces themselves as trans". Many of them had 'trans' in their bios. Go figure.

The fact is all genders and identities have noisy attention seekers that no one can please.

Sony PlayStation 4 Pro review

That noise is such an issue for me. My Xbone became my primary console due to the PS4 noise during high stree gaming. Now I'm thinking a wait for a 2nd revision PS4 Pro may be worth the patience. Unless Scorpio comes sooner...

Pre-ordered. My original PS4 is unbearably noisy, and I was considering the slim, but at £40 more it's a no-brainer. That and I have a PSVR on pre-order too. Why not get the set, eh?

As for 4K bluray, it's a format that'll never be of interest to mass consumers. It's a niche format.

@specialgamer I agree with every observation. The planet I started on felt lifeless within a few minutes of playing, even thought it was thriving with vegetation and lifeforms. There's just no illusion of anything being real or living. Something that even the most linear corridor games have achieved.

Three months on, Oculus fulfils all Rift pre-orders

FutureDave

2 years ago

@INSOMANiAC I agree it's an experience that will find it's place, and replace flat screens for a number of genres. But many things don't benefit, or are not improved, by further realism or immersion. As for racing games, these fall into the simulation genre, and are perfectly suited to VR. I don't play racing games, so this doesn't interest me.

I'll probably invest in VR one day. Maybe 2nd gen hardware that doesn't already look like dated tech - seriously, we're going to laugh at the size of current headsets in a few years. But for now I'm happy to sit back on a comfy sofa, playing games on a big flat screen, and interacting with other people in the room.

Are 4K visuals really the best use for Project Scorpio and PlayStation Neo?

FutureDave

2 years ago

Clean image, consistent high frame rate - that's all that matters to me regarding visuals. If you can honestly say a game like Uncharted on PS4 looked ropey because it's *only* 1080p, you won't ever be happy. 4K is only required if you're sat a few inches from a large monitor, or you have the luxury of a +60" TV a few feet from the sofa. 4K can wait for console gaming.

How do our gaming habits change as we grow up?

I'm 40-something, and thought I'd try Battlefront after not online gaming 'full time' since Halo 2. I was sat there waiting to spawn for the umpteenth time wondering why the hell I was wasting my evening getting shot by teenagers. However, I'm loving The Witness, and I regularly dip into Trials Fusion to beat a best time.

Online gaming isn't completely dead for me, but you really need to spend hours per night with friends who aren't full-time parents to make it competitively fun.

FutureDave

The ultimate conclusion for misguided prudes and those who hate anything than titillates straight men, is the banning of any depiction of sexy women. There is no halfway, there is no compromise, censorship of the female form is the only solution for SJWs, new wave feminists, and MrTomFTW. Because you dial back just one little bit from an outright ban on the female form, you are still "objectifying" women.

@the_rydster Hey you. You can't make jokes about real women who use their bodies for personal gain. Only polygonal characters created by men can be criticised for being too sexy, because it gives people who have a problem with beautiful scantly clad women an opportunity to vent and rage without criticising actual women. You got that, mr internet guy?

I've spent far more time just looking at stuff than playing the game. I'm sure there are more texture-heavy titles out for high spec PCs, but I'be never seen such realism with regards to lighting. It's the least 'baked' realism I've ever seen.

Hopefully the sequel won't have 10 year old RE4 gameplay...

So we're all defined by nothing but our gender now? Is that it?

"I don't feel represented!" Really? Nor do I, because other males (real or fictional) do not represent me. Video game characters do not represent me. Polygons and pixels do not represent me.

What does matter is whether the game plays well and is enjoyable. The fabricated gender of the thing I control on screen is irrelevant UNLESS the gender steers the plot.

This is a thoughtless, manufactured controversy by spoilt and privileged first world whiners. And no, I don't mean women, because most the articles I've read on this subject are by men working for websites that employ mostly men - how fucking ironic is that?

p.s. I use Ad Block. Screw you and your controversy click bait.

The PC version is best only on a PC that can handle the settings. It's like saying a car is better than a Ford Mustang. Also, I own both Xbone and PS4 versions. I'm not sure how selective you're being with your tests, but the framerate judder on Xbone is terrible in places. The PS4 version is clearly the better experience. I say this with no platform bias.
