Turok and Turok 2 hit Xbox One next week

No PS4 version? A bit stupid to avoid the console that outsells the Xbox 1 by 2:1.

Wii U games Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors headed to Nintendo Switch

My most wanted remaster is the metroid prime trilogy. Full 1080p 60fps with added content. But best of all you could play it handheld, with the pro controller or even using both joycons like the wiimote and nunchuck. The joycon has already proven it can work as a pointer without the need for a sensor bar.

A motorcycle isnít as far fetched as people are saying. Remember there are lots of robot guardians everywhere. Also scientists specialising in machines. Itís not hard to imagine one of them making a bike from old guardian parts.

Same. My XB1 is mainly used for non XB1 games. Only Forza 7 gets a look in. Basically because apart from Forza no XB1 games appeal to me.

EA has shut down Visceral Games

Monkeyspoon

This was pretty much the most anticipated Star Wars game they were making and they cancelled it and converted it to something else. How lame. It looked like Uncharted meets Star Wars which sounds amazing. I'm guessing it will be more open world now and less story driven.

Project Cars 2 review

Monkeyspoon

7 months ago

Eurogamer seem confident that the issues with this game will be sorted out in a few months. I'm not confident they will be considering they we in the first game too. It used to wind me up that I'd put in an incredible lap time in for qualifying yet end up halfway down the grid. Then start the race and find all the drivers that were meant to be faster than me end up being slower and just in my way.

I don't trust Microsoft's claims too. Especially as they never give figures any more. I can't imagine that many people are excited about it. At the end of the day it's just an Xbox one and doesn't have any exclusive games.

Cuphead will never come to PS4

Monkeyspoon

10 months ago

I doubt both Sony and Nintendo fans really care about this. Cup head doesn't look anything special and definitely not worth buying a console for. The 3DS, Switch and PS4 have far better exclusives to look forward too. I'd rather play Metroid: Samus Returns over this any day.

Game now says they are sold out too. I have some faith that those who preordered will get one. Game have a good relationship with Nintendo and they get a lot of their exclusives. As far as the Switch goes, everyone let down people about preorders and not just Game. Amazon let loads of people down.

Xbox One X promises a strong and stable line-up

Monkeyspoon

11 months ago

Microsoft's conference was completely underwhelming. No games interested me and those that did I can play on PS4. I'm no longer interested in the Xbox One X, as it only plays Xbox One games and my current Xbox One barely gets played due to lack of decent games. Here's hoping Sony has a great games lineup.

Xbox One Scorpio revealed as Xbox One X

Monkeyspoon

11 months ago

I've just realised that by Microsoft calling it the Xbox One X, it pretty much confirms that it won't get any exclusive games. It just plays Xbox One games but at a higher resolution and performance. There were rumours that Scorpio would get its own exclusives but still play Xbox One games, but that's not the case anymore. So now I have no reason at all to get one.

@obidanshinobi no I wouldn't get the XB1 version. The XB1 version has worse visuals, tearing and framerate drops not seen on PS4. The PS4 has frame pacing issues that can be fixed but the XB1's lower quality visuals, tearing and framerate drops will unlikely be fixed.

EA committed to Titanfall series for "many, many years" to come

Monkeyspoon

1 year ago

I wonder how much of Titanfall 2's underwhelming sales is due to the stupid decision not to release the first game on PS4. Apparently Rise of the Tomb Raider is selling poorly too.

Hopefully this is a wake up call to not make 3rd party games exclusively on one console because it basically kills its sales.

I noticed the latest logos under the stickers too. The stickers bothered me because they weren't lined up properly and looked odd. I had to remove them. The box looks slightly dirty because it's meant to look like an old book.

I agree. Considering the PS4 and Xbox One share similar arcitechture (except the PS4 is more powerful), only releasing the game on the weaker console seems stupid. Especially when there are twice as many PS4's then the Xbox One.

Performance Analysis: Assassin's Creed Syndicate

I also have to echo other people's opinion that the Xbox One version of Unity ran better at launch mainly because Microsoft advertised the game. I don't think its a coincidence that around 6 months later Unity ended up being the same or better on PS4.

Witcher 3 was better on Xbox one at launch but around 6 months later its now better on PS4. And surprise, Microsoft advertised the game.

With Sony advertising AC again, everything is back to normal with the PS4 version being better and exclusive dlc.

After five years of Xbox exclusivity, Call of Duty switches to PlayStation

Monkeyspoon

Microsoft really do seem to be very hypocritical these days. They buy timed exclusive dlc for COD and it's a huge deal. Sony does it and now Microsoft say it means nothing.

Microsoft buy 3rd party exclusives. Sony does it and Microsoft criticises Sony for buying exclusives.

Sony buys concentrates on making 1st party games and Microsoft criticises Sony and says it's better to get 3rd party exclusives. Now Microsoft says 3rd party exclusives aren't worth it and that it will concentrate on 1st party, while Sony is now getting both.

Monkeyspoon

It's a bit of a strange time to announce this. Before the game is released on Xbox. I wonder if square asked for more money from Microsoft or they'll announce the PS4 version. Microsoft said no so they announced it

It worked though because I know 3 Xbox one owners who are now going to wait for the PS4 version. I think I'll get the Xbox one version and trade it in straight afterwards. Get the PS4 definitive version later to keep.
