Video: Xbox 360 Gears of War vs. Xbox One Ultimate Edition

Rich72

The original 360 version does not have HDR.... the new version does. We seem to want to replicate how WE see; which is in HDR (high dynamic range) but the high contrast grittiness of the original game has been lost completely. A real shame.

yes it's technically better but come on, where was the art director when these sweeping changes were being made?

I take photos of interiors for a living and people are obsessed with HDR. It has its place but generally, its a real mood killer.

In all seriousness, I hope everyone who picks one up tonight has no problems with it. That would be the biggest come down having one DOA and no quick solution. I will be (trying at least) waiting for a good 6 months but I really do want to play BF4.

Xbox One Resolutiongate: the 720p fallout

Rich72

5 years ago

I still can't get my head around the shortcomings.... 360 has 512mb RAM and is still producing fantastic results. Xbox One does have 8 gigs of RAM (possibly 5 usable) and struggles with COD?

Looks like I'll be fine with both current gen consoles for a good while yet. I did want to play bf4 on PS4 though.... must resist.

Is the Xbox One going to be like some mainframe ala HAL.

"Dave, I detect that your pulse is elevated. Please take measures to reduce your stress levels immediately.... and Dave, I have also detected that you are a bit of a fat bastard aren't you Dave"

XBox OFF!

"I'm sorry Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that"

BioShock Infinite Season Pass announced

Rich72

I don't have too much trouble to be honest with DLC for a game like this as I most likely wouldn't buy it. Shooters on the other hand, with map packs etc, simply split the community which really dilutes the experience. For me at least.

Battlefield 3: How Fan-Run Servers Are Ruining DICE's Game

Rich72

6 years ago

Yup, I have been kicked & banned for shooting someone and my favourite was getting banned for shooting down the jet that was spawn killing at our base (no AA restrictions either).
Got verbally abused by some 15 year old american and his "buddies" last night for firing a missile in a jet, apparently thats not man enough as i need to fly up along side the enemy jet and take shots with my pistol... just like the US airforce i'm sure. Despite my ironic jokes in response, it seems this concept was lost on these guys.
Still, it was a novelty to actually hear some voices on PSN and they were pretty good players so I just had to endure there "superiority" for nearly an hour.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Review

Rich72

7 years ago

perfectly good review. exactly how I feel about the series. played the first one, played some of the second and won't play this at all. looking at the videos though, it is one beautiful looking game. I just don't have the spare cash anymore to invest in a single player only (i hated the multi player) game with little to no replay value.

are you seriously complaining about the quality of the voice chat on 360 compared to PS3? if so, I am shocked, that is the sole reason why I don't play on line with the PS3, the sound quality is nothing short of appalling.

risk and (visual) reward... there's a time and a place for everything. if you assassinate mid firefight then you deserve to die. assassinations are just a cherry to a bit of death pie.

ended up buying a new elite rather than pay for the HDD. the old bird needed a rest anyway so i could justify it to myself.

anyway new console, 4 games and extra controller for 200 notes seemed a no brainer.
