Xbox One X's 4K Red Dead Redemption looks sensational

This is an excellent upgrade, it almost makes my One X purchase worthwhile by itself!

How about some Max Payne 3 back-compat next Rockstar/Microsoft!?

Why the games media has a diversity problem - this website especially

Ultrasoundwave

2 weeks ago

@the9000 Interesting that thatís how youíve chosen to interpret my post, because itís wrong.
How about the Eurogamer Halo review - written by a bloke, fucking awful. Or more recently, the Kingdom Come Deliverance review - written by a bloke, awful.
I call out bad stuff and I praise good stuff - I donít care who writes it.

This will be the least popular post probably in Eurogamer history, but itís all about the quality of output for me, regardless whoís written it.

I understand she has people who love her work (thatís absolutely fine) but for me, Ellie has written some of the most inconsistent, painfully unfunny gibberish Iíve ever read on this site.
Do I say that because sheís female?, no. Itís the quality of the work and the way itís written - If her name was Ellis Gibson and she had a penis Iíd still offer the exact same criticism.

Diversity is important and hearing voices from all corners of the earth is essential.....but a person should NEVER be hired just because theyíre female, black, tall, short, obese or whatever.

The most talented person should get the job.

Forza Horizon 3's Xbox One X update is a true showcase for console 4K

Ultrasoundwave

3 months ago

Iím so happy this update came out. I personally prefer Horizon 3 over Forza 7, I much prefer the arcadey vibes and focus on fun so this update is an absolute winner for me.

Anyone whoís recently picked up a One X (or any Xbox One for that matter) needs to play this game. Itís arguably the best racer this generation (so far!).

Share your favourite moments from Obsidian games and win consoles!

Ultrasoundwave

My most memorable moment from an Obsidian game (and any game) seems quite simple but it goes to show how good Obsidian are at building immersive game worlds.

My first hour into Fallout New Vegas had gone well. I'd made myself a cup of tea before I started and I was enjoying being introduced to this post-apocalyptic, arid world. All you could see for miles was hot sand and the radioactive sun was beating down on New Vegas.

Disillusioned and unsure how to survive in this world, I stumbled around this unforgiving atmosphere. Suddenly, I came across a small water trough - I ran up to it and buried my characters head into it, taking multiple gulps of water.

There were no messages on the screen telling me that my character was thirsty. There was no warning that dehydration was about to set in, I just felt the urge to drink this water because I could feel the heat in this New Vegas desert.

Then, things got stranger.

Despite my glorious cup of PG tips before I started playing, watching this character drink like his life depended on it suddenly made me crave some water. The game was paused, I went to the bathroom and ran the cold tap and took a few sips.....and I wasn't even thirsty.

I've never had a stranger moment than that in 25 years of gaming. Well done Obsidian.

Well Done.

The question is: would you buy Bayonetta and/or its sequel again were it available on a handheld device?
Abso-fucking-lutely!

Quite frankly, it's a crime that Bayonetta 2 is being held to ransom on the Wii U.....as many people as possible should be playing that gem.

Get it on the Switch ASAP!

Scorpio is console hardware pushed to a new level

Ultrasoundwave

1 year ago

I've got every confidence in Microsofts ability to deliver some high quality hardware with Project Scorpio.

Confidence in their ability to deliver new, exciting, exclusive games though......nope, not confident at all. Like many other games, their constant cycle of 'Halo-Gears-Forza' has become tiresome, to the point where I have no excitement for the next installement in those franchises.

Let's hope Microsoft have some excellent new IP to announce along side the reveal of Project Scorpio!

I'm not a genius, but this might have something to do with them employing the same shitty business practices they had when they almost went into liquidation a few years back.

Nintendo Switch review

Ultrasoundwave

I'm not a massive Nintendo guy, but I have a Switch pre-ordered. This is an excellent write-up and I think Nintendo have a potential hit on their hands.

If they ignore the Xbox/PS4 and go down the "this is a handheld that you can play on your TV" route, I can see them getting a lot of success.

I'll always maintain that a healthy, profitable Nintendo is good for the industry - good luck to them!

If Gearbox have bought the Bulletstorm IP, given this remaster the green light AND have a sequel planned....I might be tempted to say "all is forgiven" for Colonial Marines.
