God of War is a smash hit in UK chart

Weezer

3 days ago

Playing this on a Pro and a standard HD Sony TV. With the game set to a 4K image, and the Pro's supersampling turned on, the image is stunning – not a jagged edge or flickery pixel in sight. And, of course, the design and assets themselves are already gorgeous. It is truly a work of art.

Far Cry's villains are sick of Far Cry

Weezer

3 weeks ago

@Rathbone Exactly why I eBayed my copy three days ago. I couldn't face endless repeated attempts at finishing a style of game I didn't sign up for. Fucking dreadful design decision in my opinion – totally unnecessary, a complete bottleneck (no way of avoiding these sections), and the very antithesis of the open world adventure I'd been sold. It baffles me why they're even in there, and it frustrated the shit out of me – so off it went. I have plenty of other games to play.

Loving the game, but hating the addition of those bottleneck shootout drug sequences, which stop the game dead. I signed up for an open world action-explorathon, not a corridor shooter. I wonder how many times I'll get 'captured'? Sigh....

Marseille mCable Gaming Edition review: hardware anti-aliasing from an HDMI cable?

Why is there even chromatic aberration in video games? It's an entirely unwanted effect of physical lenses and always looks awful. I do not understand why they add this as a visual feature.

Just want to add my congrats to GG and says thanks for creating such a beautiful and engaging game. I totally thought I'd hate it, then bought it on a whim and found it thoroughly compelling, thrilling, tense scary and downright spooky at times. Working through the DLC at the moment (which is gorgeous). Can't recommend this game enough – fortunately it looks like most people ignored the bafflingly inaccurate EG review :)

Assassin's Creed Origins is getting new game plus

Weezer

3 months ago

Adore this game. Really enjoyed The Hidden Ones and am now tidying up the main map before the next DLC in March. Loved every minute and – Anubis knows how many hours in – am STILL finding bases to attack and missions to do. Talk about getting your money's worth... Would love more DLC, but where next for the franchise after this? Wherever or whenever it is, if it's an advance over Origins I will be very excited to play it!

Assassin's Creed Origins gets 3GB patch today

Agree wth all of the above. This is a proper sandbox game where – for the most part – you go and do what you feel like: main missions, side missions, exploring, wiping out military camps, killing animals to craft gear, raiding tombs, searching for secrets and hidden weapons… and all in a beautiful looking world. God I'm loving this generation of games!

Well, my enthusiasm for this has fucked right off. I only really wanted the single player campaign anyway, but if it's broken into bits, spread over the next six months, and buggered up with some overly complex loot box/grinding mechanism I can totally wait until next year when it'll be dirt cheap. Such a shame – but you can't risk alienating your audience when there are so many other great games to play, with lots more on the horizon... Oh, EA, when will you ever learn.

Should you buy an Xbox One X?

Weezer

6 months ago

Okay it's in and up and running. Set up was pretty painless, and the unit itself is hefty but unassuming, although the X light is quite bright! 768Mb system update, followed by 40GB Gears of War 4 disc install with 60GB update currently downloading...

EDIT: One downside is that it only comes with a battery-powered controller (batteries included), not rechargeable out of the box – which in this day and age is pretty rubbish.

Not really read the article 'cos I'm just off out to collect mine (birthday treat). Then I have Gears of War 4 and Assassin's Creed to install... Hope everyone who gets their today has fun. Just ignore the haters and critics and enjoy your purchase!

Mine will sit under the PS4 Pro in a 'Proonex' kind of combo.

Sound: Nearly 1 million
Awesomeness: Very
Pixels: 12

Overall: THREE THUMBS UP!

The thought of another 15 hours of this stunning, glorious game is just fine by me. (Anyway, already pre-ordered – should be downloaded on launch day.) I feel Eurogamer's opinions on games and mine are on divergent paths these days...

EDIT: 8 or of 10 on Polygon and their 4K screenshots look bloody gorgeous.

Weezer

Thee's no point updating an older game to 4K if you don't increase the poly count on the assets. 4K just lets you see the edges more clearly. Higher res textures will look better, but they can't hide a low-poly object.

Jesus, talk about splitting hairs. I have SoW on the Pro and never once noticed the fucking ground texture because I was PLAYING THE GAME. I was too busy getting chased by hordes of orcs and legging it at high speed round Mordor to worry about such petty concerns. I swear Digital Foundry (which is a pretentious misnomer cos foundries make stuff, DF just look and moan) is helping gamers to look like even more cuntier than they already are. I mean, I love my graphics but this is getting ridiculous.

Loved PSVR for the first few months, but now it's all packed away and ready to be traded in (unless someone wants to make me an offer for a helmet, Move controllers and camera 2.0). Sony might be supporting new hardware, but where's the software? Just a bunch of middling indie games and some other guff. Anyway, it makes my head ache.

Never played this first time around so will happily give this a go - but God, I hate American voice overs.

US localization…

"Yo, bro! Your magical skills are super-awesome"
"Dude, you're so, like, wise and stuff. Now I'm gonna go kick ass!"
